#2313511 Opinions if Wings have to settle for 'Plan B': Semin and Carle

Posted by amato on 03 July 2012 - 11:00 AM

our D-men would have to step up and play great all season but other than that, I don't think I'd have a problem with this at all.. I for one would love to have semin playing with datsyuk.

and i think us signing "the monster" was our smartest move so far.. finally howard has a solid back up so he's not completely drained towards the end of the season/playoffs from playing around 60 games a season.

i would like to see nyq up on teh top line with pav and semin though, move helm to third line center and move mule to third line/maybe end up switching him with brunner or nyq eventually... not sure how that would make the fourth line look though but i'd like to see something like that to start the season.

#2313439 Parise Watch [update x2]: Red Wings OUT of Running

Posted by amato on 03 July 2012 - 08:47 AM

Didn't lebron wait a month or more..? If parise isn't sign by August then by all means everyone come back here and b**** about it haha give it a day or two and free agency can resume

#2312599 Wings may trade Johan Franzen for Rick Nash?

IF this happens the mule would be in absolute beast mode when he plays us.

Beast mode 6 games throughout the season sounds about right :P

#2311017 Brodeur may test open market

Posted by amato on 29 June 2012 - 10:12 AM

Would love to see Brodeur in Tampa.

#2310949 Valtteri Filppula - we should get him locked up as soon as possible

Posted by amato on 29 June 2012 - 06:51 AM

He'll be asking for more than 20 mil at 5 years.

I think that's well worth it. He's only getting better.

Edit: sorry its early haha just realized it said more than but still worth it. Idk though he might take a little less than he could get. I hear he could be next in line for the C after zette.. Might take a little less than he's worth. Maybe not for 5 years tho

#2310581 Red Wings OUT of bidding for D Justin Schultz

Posted by amato on 27 June 2012 - 09:31 PM

Eh not the end of the world. Yea could be a bust but he just seems like a bit of a drama queen.. I'm not worried.

I'd rather put him on helms wing on the third than put helm on the fourth.

#2309218 2012 NHL Entry Draft Discussion

Posted by amato on 23 June 2012 - 11:55 AM

Very good draft by the wings... nice job kenny and crew... Now lets make some noise a week from tomorrow!

Go Wings!

Yes! Fianally a positive post about the draft. Everyone needs to stop freaking out.. If nothing happens July 1st, by all means be pissed. But for now, I trust holland to make this team great just as he always has.

#2308258 Red Wings Prepared to Offer Hudler Contract

Posted by amato on 20 June 2012 - 12:59 PM

Renaud Lavoie via twitter: Sources in New York are saying that it appears P.A. Parenteau is headed to free agency.

Possible huds replacement? Don't know too much about him other than season stats from the past couple years are pretty decent lookin..


#2308063 Parise and Suter - how much are they really worth?

Posted by amato on 19 June 2012 - 01:13 PM

"Chatted briefly w/Rinne. He said he tried to call Suter today, but no answer. He still thinks there is a good chance Suter signs w/ Preds."

#2307961 Red Wings make contract offer to D Justin Schultz

Posted by amato on 19 June 2012 - 08:17 AM

Also keep in mind he has been forced to play with Kindl, Commodore, Lebda... Ian white, Kronwall and Stuart would probably look worse playing with these scrubs

Probly the best point anyone has made about Ericsson. Can't wait to see what he can do playing regularly with white or kronwall.. If he even gets that chance.

#2307423 Zach Parise

Posted by amato on 14 June 2012 - 04:15 PM

Michael Russo of the Star-Tribune: "The Wild have more than $20 million in salary cap space and will be targeting “NHL talent.” The Wild are desperate for scoring and are expected to offer Zach Parise as much as $8-9 million a year."

I doubt 8-9 even gets him to go to the wild.. I dont even kno why the wild even think they have a chance at landing parise.

#2307084 Red Wings Prepared to Offer Hudler Contract

I think nyquist could easily be hudlers replacement if they give him the amount of ice time and responsibility huds had.

#2307033 Nashville to trade Suter's rights?

Posted by amato on 12 June 2012 - 09:48 PM

So you wouldn't give up Mursak/Emmerton/Andersson/Kindl ??

Not for rights for a UFA, no.
