#2674296 Mantha

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 28 April 2016 - 06:25 PM

Positive words from Holland on Mantha and Bertuzzi:


"Both bring important dimensions," Holland said. "Both are young players that we need to be important in Detroit one day."



plus video of Mantha send 2 goals through the mesh of the net.

#2674477 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Yeah I keep hearing avs are the favorite. Varlamov seems to have played a roll and Roy coached Radulov back when he was in the Q too.

Ha, he and Varlamov WOULD have some sort of connection. And the crazed Roy is a perfect coach for a violent prima donna player.

I guess it depends on what the agreement was. And it might depend on if it's a modified NTC/when it expires.

Hopefully we'll know more about the expansion draft soon


All I can say if his contract forces Holland to protect him, he has to buy him out. Ideally he'd move him this summer. But god damn.

SBNation says he's likely going to the Avs.

Apparently, he's not too interested in playing in the NHL playoffs...

Trouba = both of these things. He's 22. Plus he's good size, a Michigan boy, and right handed in addition to his good play and high ceiling. He's a no brainer trade target imo

Yes and he would absolutely a dream come true. Winnipeg would be incredible stupid to let him go but hey it would be a huge win for us.

Danny D. - Trouba for the next 10 years? Boy sign me up for that plus both are Michigan boys :)

Trouba is a guy who can,be in the lineup now. Someone who can grow as part as the core of the team going forward. Drafting dmen is important as well, but the fact remains is we still need a dman NOW.

Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaame (but not surprising) 

I was literally going to post the same thing.

#2674130 WCQF : Anaheim Ducks vs. Nashville Predators

:lol: Hawks out, Ducks out, if the Caps could take out the Pens this would be an ideal playoff scenario for an early Wings exit.

In the end, this is the summer to make a trade for a dman. Players will be available due to expansion draft next summer. Teams will be looking to get something for their players while they can. Trouba is the perfect target.

1. Abby is a power forward.


2. Losing Abby would make us even smaller and easier to play against.


3. The contract really isn't that bad at all. In fact the AAV is pretty good. 


Get over it and find something legitimate to complain about.  He's the last thing we need to change/fix.

#2673908 Who gets the "A" when datsyuk leaves?

Posted by NerveDamage on 26 April 2016 - 06:15 PM

Abby should get it. Should get the "C" actually. I know the Wings won't pull a SJ and strip Z of it, but maybe they should.

could he overtake ze Swedish Mafia for the "C" though?

If you think this class is weak, wait until next year.  Lots of 35+ players contracts expiring and not much else.  Hedman will be a UFA next year, but I can't imagine he'll make it that far especially if Stamkos does leave TB.
In today's NHL, who would be willing to part with a top pairing defenseman?  I agree that we need a stud d-man, but who are you thinking about getting that anyone would be willing to part with?  PK Subban?  Shea Weber?  Ryan Suter?  Kris Letang?  Alex Pieterangelo?  Drew Doughty?  Erik Karlsson?  Those are some of the best in the league right now and I can't imagine any of them moving even if we offered Dylan Larkin.  Even if we were able to swing a deal for one of those guys or some other top tier d-man, that's not really going to fix the problem.  The unit as a whole isn't very good.   The UFA defensemen aren't great, but they're better than what we currently have and I think several minor upgrades would be in our best interest considering the unavailability of top tier d-men around the league.

Trouba might be available. The Jets have 3 defensemen with a nmc, they'll either have to expose Trouba or only protect 4 forwards as it stands now, assuming the PA gets their way and players with a nmc have to be protected. Unless they make a deal with the expansion team(s) they'd lose someone they really don't want to lose. Trading Trouba or convincing one of the others to waive their clause is their best option.

I don't think "proven prospects" exist. If they're proven, they aren't prospects.
