#2530658 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by number9 on 08 July 2014 - 04:47 PM

I certainly hope you're right. Just consider me a realist or in the wait and see crowd. Cause the only thing we have to go off is their recent history.


A realist would realize just how bizarre last season was when it came to injuries


#2530559 Article on FAs and Red Wings

Posted by number9 on 08 July 2014 - 09:18 AM

I don't know why the city even gets brought up. Bloomfield Hills is a great place to live.


#2530527 Marchenko

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 11:01 PM

They clearly didn't know that Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan were ready to go... It took loads of injuries to find out. Same thing will happen again in all likelihood with the D. If there is anything you can expect from the Wings and Holland - they never change. 


That's fine. That's what I expect. Someone will go down and a kid will step in in. Perfect.

I think at least 2 of our D prospects will be ready after THIS season - so ya it will interfere. Ideally we'd break one in this year and then move Lashoff and Kindl out and break in another next year.

.

I agree, but look at the contract Sheahan signed. I don't think it'll break us in the next 2 seasons


#2530524 Dylan Larkin - Highest draft pick since 1991

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 10:56 PM

Larkin seems to have the attitude the wings want. Which means whether he's 1st line or 4th he'll likely make it.


#2530522 Marchenko

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 10:52 PM

While everyone's moaning and groaning I think the wings kno they have guys like Marchenko, Ouelette, Sproul, Jensen, Pulkinnen, AA, Nosek, Ferraro, Callahan, Mantha, ready to go. That's like the best offseason upgrade you can ask for. Just one could make a huge difference, see: Nyquist.


#2530521 What's best for Mantha?

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 10:47 PM

Mantha is a perfect call up. Let him dominate in GR while he gets a taste via injuries. It will check his ego while also keeping him confident. Perfect scenario for a #1 prospect


#2530513 Hockey News: Red Wings ‘D’ hunting

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 10:29 PM

Manxy Manxy Manxy....Helm, Kindl and a 1st would bring in more than you think...but you can just keep attacking my post's without mature discussion or thought intriguing responses because you yourself do not know how things work.  You also lol'd and put the little shaking head emoticon up there when I said that Ehrhoff would get around $3.5M to $4M as a UFA because of his buyout, and you just decided to try to discredit my knowledge of hockey and my touch on reality....but wait, what exactly did he sign for?
 
Do me a favor, do not reply to my posts anymore or just hit the ignore button and don't read what I put up here. Thank you.
 
And for the record, the response "This isn't NHL xx" is getting about annoying as Holland kicking tires... I don't even play NHL xx...


A PKer, a low 1st rounder, and a waste of space Kindl doesn't get u Myers, project or not. Stop living in la la land.

Fine....top six DMan on a playoff team...regardless...he's an NHL player filling a spot for 80 game.  Sorry he isn't he next Bobby Orr..but he's an NHL PLAYER  and decent one at t hat.  Something more than pick #19 from the 2012 draft  likely would have been by now.
 
Sorry to rock the boat on one of the three memes of this board (Quincey sucks...Holland is dumb..Franzen blows)  but I honestly don't think the Wings biggest problem is Kyle F'n Quincey


Hey we agree on something!


#2530486 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 07:08 PM

I'm not really advocating tanking, but it worked pretty well for Pittsburgh and Chicago. The structure of the league just lends better to a compete rebuild than getting stuck in mediocrity. The Calgary Flames are the perfect example.


It also worked terribly for Edmonton and Columbus. Tanking is a last resort that too many ppl are overly eager to see. It's the big fish/name mentality. Either get a big name through trade draft or FA or they will be unhappy. Wings r smarter than that.

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 09:44 AM

In reality this is hardly a tough decision ask yourself this:

 

Would you trade Tatar, a first and a cap dump for a young Chara, Pronger ? Personally I would but everbody is different.

 

I can play this game too. Would you trade a young Kessel, a first and a cap dump for Tyler Myers? Personally I wouldn't, but everybody is different.




#2530326 Trial date set in Steve Moore’s lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 12:35 AM

They will settle. The asking price is all part of negotiations. Nothing significant will happen. Moore will get a fair amount of money and then this will go away.




#2530269 When will we know about Alfie? (Legwand signed w. Sens)

Posted by number9 on 06 July 2014 - 03:24 PM

At least he would've made an effort then. Like when he was brought in and everyone was injured.

I had no problem getting legwand I had a problem with what was have up for him.

I get your point but at same time you're comparing Ottawa to us...really?


You made the initial comparison bud, not me


#2530198 When will we know about Alfie? (Legwand signed w. Sens)

Posted by number9 on 05 July 2014 - 11:13 PM

Least they made a move to address a hole. While we did......?????

Hell they're not even going to be good and still addressed their hole on their lineup after trading spezza away.


It'd be like us replacing Datsyuk with Legwand. You'd be crying, not laughing. (And prolly ripping holland)


#2530196 Can Z and Pav do anything to protest? (not that they would)

Posted by number9 on 05 July 2014 - 11:08 PM

Thank u gmcom and ET. I'm a wings fan bc wings don't do the stuff shanyman robo and play r suggesting. U all almost seem excited for them to leave. Shameful.
