#2683392 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 18 July 2016 - 06:18 AM

Some things never change...remember Bert, Sammy and Cleary? Of course you do, but if it wasn't for their injuries, we'd of never seen the Jurco - Sheahan - Tatar line that pretty much got us to the playoffs that year....


And what baffles me is we've basically never seen that line put together again for some apparent reason. Those 3 were very good and they were playing against 2nd pairing defenseman at the time due to all injurie. With the depth we have now they would play against 3rd pairs. If I'm Blashill I definitely try that line again

Looking like a terrible day I'm scared senseless for noon, but part of me doesn't care anymore cause I'm just so tired of ken holland being the wings GM. Team won't be good until this over the hill guy is out of the system

Fire holland now so done with this clown.

We will get Nielsen who is good but won't trade for a d-man and be the exact same team as last year. AA is here for a reason to replace him cause he's cheaper and way better. I hate Darren helm in the top 6 it's so damn useless but I know he will be there. Pathetic. Given up on holland at this point

so ansar kahn tweeted out that ericsson was being bought out, but then quickly deleted it. interesting....


Actually? Wow that would be amazing. Hoping it's true


#2677729 Red Wings re-sign Riley Sheahan: 2-years, $4.15m

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 15 June 2016 - 08:40 AM

Steal of a deal for sheahan. Hope this guy takes the next step cause he's big, pretty quick and has good hands. When the kid shoots he scores, has an absolute bullet of a shot


#2677457 Datsyuk - someone who works for JLA told me he's sold his house

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 11 June 2016 - 11:48 AM

Unfortunately the Pronger contract itself is $5 million. I was hoping it wouldn't come down to a swap.


Why would that matter tho? He won't count against the cap due to LTIR


#2677450 Datsyuk - someone who works for JLA told me he's sold his house

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 11 June 2016 - 11:03 AM

Florida offered the contract plus a second round pick. What if we offer the Datsyuk contract plus Pulk and a mid tier pick. So we lose Pulk, rid the contract and give up a 5th round pick or something (or maybe 4th rounder)... Would that sweeten the deal? Or would we be giving up too much?


It sounds like we're talking with Arizona and I believe that by taking back pronger we won't have to give up as much because we save Arizona from actually dollars being paid which is an advantage for them. This would significantly drive the price down in my opinion


#2676717 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 28 May 2016 - 08:58 AM

Getting radulov would be huge!! Throw in a Loui erikson/okposo/brouwer and Matt Martin that would be great!!!

Then flip Tatar + for vatanen
Move datsyuk to Arizona
Move Howard to the canes/islanders
Move E to anyone, if not bury him
Sign Montoya

Abdelkader- Larkin-erikson/okposo/Brouwer
Radulov- AA- Nyquist
Zetterberg- sheahan- mantha
Martin- glendening- jurco

Kronwall- green
Dekeyser- vatanen
Smith- marchenko
XO- Sproul

Mrazek
Montoya

I like that roster a lot and think it could compete and be better built for playoff hockey. If Larkin, mantha, and AA all take good steps forward it could be very good.

If we could get some help on the top 2 lines would love to have a third line of Abby-Z-Pulk. Pulk gets to play with a great corner guy in Abby, a strong playmaker in Z. I think that could be a deadly third next year. Plus obviously PP time will help if he is utilized for his one timer. Only takes a few goals from that dot for teams to respect him and take him away. That will open up more for the other 4 guys.

I believe the guy could get 20+ next year in this role


#2672761 I Hate Jeff Blashill because ...

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 21 April 2016 - 09:29 PM

I hate him cause he relies to heavily on veterans and doesn't hold them accountable and refuses to admit AA and mantha deserve to play a lot over said veterans

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 21 April 2016 - 09:25 PM

Just 1 more year Pavel.... but it is so clear he's done in the NHL. 


Don't blame him, I'd be tired of waiting for my gm to try and win me one more cup


#2672645 ECQF Game 5 Post-GDT: at Tampa Bay 1, Red Wings 0 (TB Wins, 4-1)

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 21 April 2016 - 08:51 PM

Another though, that miscue by Mrazek reminded me a lot of Howard!


You can't blame mrazek man he let in 1 damn goal. It's like a pitcher getting s*** on for allowing 1 run and losing. No run support. This team can defend and a lot of times get quality chances but man they cannot score and that's the biggest problem. Not gonna get any easier with Pavel gone

That play is the season in a nutshell
