#2680569 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Ugh I don't want any of these albatross deals. All these guys are going to get signed for way too much money for way too long of a term.


#2680478 Other than Stamkos, which FA forward do you want?

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on Today, 12:58 AM

I'd rather re-up Helm and get Okposo then to sign Nielsen to a long deal to get a center. Nielsen will end up being a terrible contract in 2 years.

If Darren Helm had hands he would definitely be a 2nd line player. AA absolutely could develop into a 2C - he's only been played half a year - he is going to get better.

There is no honor in tanking.  It's a terrible idea to purposely tank and I cannot comprehend how some of you suggest it as an option.  There are other ways to get back and we'll find our way there.


I'm not saying we need to purposely tank. None of the free agents are going to make us contenders so why give a guy like Nielsen who is 32 a 5 or 6 year deal worth 5.5-6.0 million dollars just because.


#2680436 Stamkos to... Tampa

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on Yesterday, 10:33 PM

The only good thing is he signed before July 1st. At least we didn't get strung along for 3 days while all the other free agents signed like Suter and Parise did.

KH better get Belle Tire on the phone

I found this Stamkos Contract Calculator in TSN. And Detroit is the best option for net salary.

oh and also this: 
"Made up Tweet: Stamkos met the Belle Tire Man and Little Caesar himself, serenaded by Eminem." per @GeorgeMalik :D


Stamkos can have all the hot and ready's he wants if he comes to Detroit. That in itself should mean this is a done deal.

VADIM SHIPACHYOV....
 

Anyone know anything about this guy?  Seems he may be available to come to the NHL this upcoming season.  He's a center who has pretty good stats in the KHL.  

I'm sure the Hawks will sign him and he will win rookie of the year.


#2679766 Drew Miller re-signs... 1 year deal $1.025 million

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 27 June 2016 - 10:46 PM

He'll be the 14th forward, in the lineup once in awhile.


Better than having Andersson in every once in awhile.


#2679704 Lesser FA players.

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 27 June 2016 - 03:30 PM

Lesser FA signings would be pointless for this team. I'd rather have the young guys fill those roles and develop. We have room for about 2 stud forwards and a stud defenseman. Signing anyone else would force us to expose our good prospects to waivers.


#2679647 Drew Miller re-signs... 1 year deal $1.025 million

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 27 June 2016 - 12:12 PM

Finally our big splash! I'm ok with a 1 year deal. And 1 mill is nothing. He will help the PK. Now let Helm walk.

Fans should pre-order their Thomas Vanek jersey's right now. 


Our free agent signing is having a healthy Drew Miller back.


#2679552 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 26 June 2016 - 10:47 AM

Number 2 is a big assumption by you and many others, people are trying to create the definitive narrative that Detroit passed over Chychrun in order to make this trade, there is no guarantee that Detroit ever wanted him and if they picked at 16 they very well could have picked someone else just like the 15 teams before them. If you are Detroit, and you are not planning on drafting Chychrun due to his injury history, what better move to make then to trade the pick to a team that does want him, add a second, and get rid of Datsyuk's contract.
 
Now, is that what happened? Who knows, only a hand fill of people could answer that question. But my point is you cant say that trade cost us Chychrun as we have no clue who they would have drafted at 16 had they picked.

I agree. If Detroit believed this guy was a franchise defenseman, they would never trade the pick away just to get rid of Datsyuk's contract. They had other offers on the table and other avenues they could have explored. My belief is they weren't high on Chychrun and used his hype to their advantage. Time will tell how good he is but I don't think he was as high on our draft board as other teams.

I can't wait to come back to this thread in 6-7 years when one of these guys turns out to be a draft steal. The Wings are know what they are doing when it comes to drafting. Have a little faith.
