#2483138 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by amato on 10 February 2014 - 11:52 AM

Would anyone on here support me saying id be okay with bringing quincey back for less money?
He's really not that bad, he just needs a solid shutdown d man to cover his mistakes and to try to get him scoring.
Bi mean were not grtting our first rd pick back for him.
May as well bring him back on a short/cheap deal.


although i'd really rather not.. maybe i'd bring him back for about 2 years, 2 mill per if we can't find anyone else.

I appreciate Nyquist.

#2481467 If Datsyuk returns Thursday, who's up next to sit?

Posted by amato on 05 February 2014 - 02:03 PM

Aside from Franzen, Kindl is the only other player not skating. (lower body injury)
I wonder if the place him on IR to get down to the 23-man roster.

That appears to be the plan..

"@AnsarKhanMLive: If Datsyuk is cleared for tomorrow, Kindl will go on short-term IR, opening a roster spot. No other move needed."

In the end, we don't owe each other (outside of our families) anything.  Rising up and giving to each other out of the goodness of our hearts is what makes us realize the good that is out there and gives us incentive to carry on and contribute to help those who need it in the hope that they will continue as they are able.


"liked" for this. beautifully said.



as for vladdy, it seems to me that the wings still very much care about him.


it's such a shame that he couldn't play out his career.

#2481174 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

The trade deadline aquisition.




"The kids stepping up is better than any player we could have gotten at the trade deadline."


^would anyone be surprised? :P

We need a legitimate enforcer and a scoring powerforward imo. A powerforward is virtually impossible but I would settle for a skilled hard working guy like Callahan, Dubinsky or Matthias. The latter is perhaps a possibility as he seems to struggle a bit lately.

Matthias has been on my wishlist for a couple seasons now.. He's young, affordable, works hard, and can win faceoffs. I'd love to add him.

#2475321 1/22 GDT : Blackhawks 4 at Red Wings 5 (SO)

I'd also like to thank nbc for having us face an actual rival on "rivalry night"....

#2473783 1/16 GDT : Red Wings 0 at Rangers 1

I wouldn't call Helm a key injury. We've been playing without him for 3 years



he's a key injury not because we've always had him playing.. but because helm is a difference maker on the ice.

This is only the second time the Club has been beaten in consecutive games by a one-goal shutout and the first time since 11/11 and 13/11/1954.


and we won the cup that year!! it must be a sign. LGW

#2473657 Would Samuelsson ever consider retiring mid-season?

Posted by amato on 17 January 2014 - 06:38 AM

Would anyone here be upset if they were samuelsson? Getting paid a multimillion dollar check for getting to watch hockey sounds pretty good to me :P

#2473293 Bleacher Report: 5 positive things in the Red Wings

Posted by amato on 16 January 2014 - 01:55 PM

the biggest positive is that an "off season" for the wings = playoff bubble team. while making the playoffs isn't a given nowadays, the wings are a team that know how to get there.. and they will.


i too cannot wait to watch a fully healthy detroit red wings roster.

#2473073 Datsyuk - Team Russia captain for Sochi

Posted by amato on 15 January 2014 - 07:34 AM

As much as I want USA to take home the gold, it'd be awesome to watch hank and pav battle it out for first as captains.

#2472710 Certain NHL attendance metrics are better than NBA

Posted by amato on 13 January 2014 - 11:32 AM

The NBA eastern conference also has something embarrassing like only two teams above .500.
Grain of salt type of thing.


guess it could fall under "more talent" then.... or at least talent more spread out.

Are the Everblades a Lightning affiliate? If so that means Yzerman and co get first dibs.....

Yes, according to PHT they are an affiliate to both the lightning and the canes.
