#2519728 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by PumpkinEscobar on 08 May 2014 - 12:32 PM

We need a top line scorer, a top power forward, a shut down D man, a puck moving D man, a new starting goalie, multiple gritty bottom 6 forwards, a new coach, and a new GM.
If we do that will everyone be happy?

probably not lol

Wish things could have worked out with him. Seems like a good dude.

If Alfredsson doesn't come back, or even if he does, I want Holland to acquire Gaborik. Injury prone or not the guy is a scorer.

Hi people. Just found this place while searching for Red Wings draft needs and considerations. Wow. Seems like a lot of people know what to do!! I think the main hole they need to fill is top line sniper. I wonder if Ovechkin talks are out of the question???

Welcome to LGW. Yes, we all know what to do. In fact everyone here agrees we should trade Franzen for Ovechkin straight up.

Holmgren is known for awful trades, lets go after Simmonds lol


It'll never work, Holmgren only makes shockingly poor decisions when 30 goal forwards are involved (Richards, Carter, Lecavalier, Van Riemsdyk).  Simmonds has only ever had 29.  To think, one more goal and Holmgren would probably have shipped him to Detroit for Daniel Alfredsson's youth.

my d-man off season wishlist right there.


he's had a breakout year, is good size, right handed, reletively young.... geterrdone kenny! 


I would be legitimately happy if Holland did nothing else but sign Niskanen and let all the obvious free agents walk.  You can always fill needs at the deadline, but I'd be perfectly happy going into next season with...












Edit:  Obviously the means trading Andersson, Kindl, and Lashoff for whatever you can get (not roster players).

#2517946 Injury Updates

Posted by VM1138 on 28 April 2014 - 10:19 AM


After 24 games last season, while we were a healthy Red Wings team, we were a whooping 12-14...It's more than injuries that are slowing us down from winning a Cup...


First off...how can a team have a record longer than games played?


If we arbitrarily change it to include October and November (27 games) it becomes:


13-10-4, where OT losses count as real losses, and the third column is only shootout losses.  


That's a Wings team where Bertuzzi and Cleary were in the lineup, Tatar had limited minutes, Nyquist hadn't been called up, and Weiss was playing injured and Alfredsson was learning a new system.  Oh, and Franzen was having whatever secretive issues plagued him.  We were hardly healthy, just not as injured as we would become.  I separated the shootouts because those can't really indicate the success or failure of a team.  It's more like pure dumb luck on a given night for an individual player.


In other words, the Wings got points in 20 games of 27. That's pretty remarkable considering all the dead weight on the team.  If we look at a record as showing games where points were earned they were 20-7 in the first two months.  Consider that any of those games could've been victories with a lucky bounce here and there.


Now we have the kid line and Nyquist.  Smith is coming on and hopefully won't pull a Kindl, Zetterberg will be healthier than he's been in years, it's really not as bleak, at least for the regular season.  We still have to change as a team to be built for a playoff run, but I'm not worried about the regular season, even if we iced the same team we did this year (God forbid).

I love the meme starting to build on message boards and some bloggers in Boston: "It sure would be nice to get our injured guys back. That cost us"


YOU want injured guys back?

Datsyuk just took the saying "you can't make a bad pass to a good player" to a whole new level

Sorry, as a former SJS season ticket holder, I am SO over their fans and the Sharks in general.

#2508968 Ryan Malone arrested

His arrest report lists his occupation as "Forward" instead of Professional Hockey Player. Jailer must be a hockey fan. :)
