#2684636 Ryspayev Should Be Banned.. Disgusting.

Ott has never been a good fighter.  He'd have trouble with Abdelkader.  

And he did, with a lot of hugging...


Ott was never a tough guy. He routinely got his ass kicked by guys who could actually fight. He was an antagonist and, in his prime, a good checker. Not sure what he brings to Detroit at this stage of his career.

People cry and cry here that Holland never signs players...he signs a decent hockey player for a contract that isn't terrible on a day that is famous for the worse deals. People still whine...whats he supposed to do?

Holland signed a decent player today for contract that isn't terrible?? Who? Did I miss something?

It's a dumb deal and there is nothing anyone can say (spin) to convince me otherwise. I would have been happier (and the team better off in the long run) with one of the kids playing, I could care less about the streak and subsequent 1st round exit.

Player A and B didn't want to come here? Fine, tell us that. I can buy that; Holland is not exactly the most charismatic or convincing person in the NHL. I'm not even sure I would sign with Detroit at this point, unless of course Holland gave me 8 years - I mean, I'm only in my late 30's. 


Just go and sign Matt Martin now so I have a reason to watch the games other than Larkin.

I'd be happy if re-signed Helm and then maybe went out and signed another smallish, soft, non-physical middling European player (you can never have enough of those!) like Frans Nielsen. If Holland could pull this off, redeemed!

Please fire Holland right now. WE DO NOT NEED THIS GUY!!! And for 6 seasons??? He might net us an extra couple of points via the shootout, but that's about it. He brings NOTHING NEW! I would have been happier standing pat than this, which I suggested. If you can't get the big fish, play the kids. 


I'm sof****** sick of Holland it's not even a joke. He's killing this team. 


Okposo just signed with Buffalo for not much more than this.


Holland is beyond incompetent. I don't even think his apologists can apologize for him anymore, but I'm sure they'll try.

No locks, but early expectations: Lucic goes to Oilers. Nielsen goes to Red Wings. Ladd goes to Isles and Eriksson goes to Canucks. #hunch


Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger 2m2 minutes ago

It will be interesting to see what Holland is able to lure to Det. I believe Ladd was a primary target, but he has a ton of options.


I for one would be very happy with a Nielsen signing... Dude is a very good player who plays both PP and the PK and will get you at least 20 goals and 50 pts a year


No trolls, he is not Stephen Weiss lol... He actually has talent and has been really durable lately


Nielsen brings nothing to Detroit that they didn't have last season. I'd rather see a kid from GR play than sign him. He was a mediocre player most of his career before having a couple of decent seasons recently. I would bet that he would not score 15 goals here, and yes, I do see him as a Stephen Weiss 2.0. It would be a worthless signing. 
Lucic at least would have brought some grit and toughness, but it appears he's out. 
Staal would be pointless. 
I'd like Backes short term, but don't see that happening. 
I have no interest in Andrew Ladd, and I doubt he has any interest in us. 
So that leaves Eriksson and Okposo. I'd be happy with either, if the numbers were right. 
Would also like to add Matt Martin, but that is low probability. 

#2680155 Other than Stamkos, which FA forward do you want?

Posted by Hairy Lime on 29 June 2016 - 03:12 PM

Depending on what he's asking, Lucic. I know many Wings fans hate him, especially after what he did to Dekeyser, but he's brute force, and this team could use a little of that. And a 20/35/55 guy who hits and fights is nothing to sneeze at. But I hear Oilers are very interested.

Hits, fights, goes hard to the front of the net. No, he's not Red Wings material.

He's a big ball of fluff.

What is softer than fluff?

We need to start game 3 like we finished game 2. That would make me happy. Let's hate Tampa like 90s Wings hated Colorado.

The most despondent GDT thread ever. The unfortunate thing is, it's all true...  

The real question in tonight's game..

Will the GDT be locked after the game like the past handful?

If we at all fall behind by two goals in this game, it might be closed before the game is even over.

I would be enjoying this game a lot more if we were up 3-0

I'd be enjoying this game a lot more if we were up 7-0 and Toews and Kane were both Kronwalled out of the game on a stretcher. But that's me; I'm hard to please.
