#2176234 Notable Restricted/Unrestricted Free Agents in 2011

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 16 May 2011 - 03:23 PM

Yes, because Konner knows everything :rolleyes:


He doesn't know everything.

Though he does know enough. :thumbup:


#2176233 Homer needs to be a 4th liner/PP specialist next season..

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 16 May 2011 - 03:19 PM

Bert and Homie are supposed to provide the net presence on scoring lines, which makes them liable for bad calls and yet those two are undoubtedly on the referees s*** list for reputation calls among with a bunch others in the league... That's what... Irony? :hehe:


#2176077 Notable Restricted/Unrestricted Free Agents in 2011

What I would like the Red Wings to pursue:

1. Top-six scoring winger OR a solid third line center that would allow Filppula to play on Pav's wing. (Probably not Abdelkader or Helm)
2. Solid seasoned veteran bottom pairing defensive defenseman. (Not Ericsson)
3. Smart and safe puck moving defenseman for the third pair. (Probably not Ericsson or Kindl)
4. Someone to keep the flies off.
(5.) Perhaps a backup goalie other than Ozzie but I feel like Ozzie has one more redemption run in him by backup goalie standards.

EDIT: To me, that's the ideal. I realistically hope they get at least a couple of those.


#2175586 Will Nicklas Lidstrom Retire?

"Obviously, he proved to himself (this season) that he's a top-one defenseman," forward Danny Cleary said, laughing at his own impromptu designation. "It's hard to retire when you're the best. So, I don't know. I hope he comes back for our sake, and for everybody's sake."
From The Detroit News: http://detnews.com/a...w#ixzz1MMTaD600

Haha. I've never heard anybody else use that "top-one" phrase.



#2175431 Hudler's Future

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 14 May 2011 - 05:00 AM

Hudler is signed for next year, with his trade value low, he's going no where. Also, he's in a contract year, so I'm expecting he'll return to 2008 form. Let's take advantage of that!


Pretty much.

I'd gladly put up with all the 'I told you so's from the Hudler sheeple circle jerk if he can score 50-55 points and stay out of the minus.

Maybe Mursak will surprise us in training camp, secure a spot on a scoring line (2nd or 3rd) and do a solid job over 82 games.

Mule-Pav-Homie
Bear-Z-Mursak
Huds-Fil-Bert
Abby-Helm-Eaves


:cool:

Hopefully not until #5 gets cup #5.

Would LOOOVE to hear people's reasoning behind the Eaves votes too...


They're jealous that his smile is too wide.

Any way we can make Franzen a little more like Ryane Clowe?


#2174702 Changes in the offseason

As a general principle, I just want Kenny to get some guys who are hungry for a cup.

I think the Wings showed all the heart, desire and hunger that they had. They did everything they could. Yet, they're not the ones traveling to Vancouver. The challenge is that if you've won a cup before, you're probably don't have as much desire as someone who hasn't. I hope that some news faces would keep things fresh and exciting and inspire the team a little more.

I'm not so sure that Drapes and Ozzie have to go.


#2174435 Thanks For the Great Season, Wings!

That loss really, really sucked. Especially after they won 3 games in a row.

But I'm glad they fought hard until the end. Go Wings!
