If Holland does not trade Pav and Howard, he should be fired.


Take a shot every time someone on the site says this. Lol

If Holland fails to move Pav's contract, that's the last straw for him.


Like many have pointed out on the site, it's not a matter of "if." If it was life or death, we could give someone Mantha and they would take the contract in a heartbeat. If the asking price doesn't come down from teams, he doesn't move the contract. It's as simple as that.

I still think when it's all said and done the contract will be gone , but holland is gonna sit back and let the teams go to him
And trust me they will , if teams like Chicago wanna be stupid and give up a teravainen, it doesn't mean we have to , and I don't care what some think but this contract has value to a team like Carolina who are in financial ruins and can save 7 million dollars by taking his contract
They'll come to us by the end of June begging for that contract


I agree that for a low market team that needs to get to the floor, this would be a dream come true. Get 7.5 mill towards your team salary without having to pay a cent of it and get a free prospect or draft pick. I'd be surprised if Arizona or Carolina doesn't work with us.

now we know why datsyuk stayed last season

Holland said Wings told Datsyuk they'd fight him playing in KHL 15-16, agreed if he honored that, accept him leaving this summer.


Holland isn't stupid. He knew if he had Datsyuk's 7.5 contract and 2 seasons left on it he would be stuck with it. One year is much more appetizing to teams.

Based on what Holland said just now, does not sound like Pavs contract is going to move. Maybe he's playing the media, but I'm not sure. If we have to eat that 7.5.... boy. At least we'll have a team full of kids I guess.


I see it as a possible ploy. It might seem like Carolina and Arizona have the upper hand in the deal but both teams would be unaffected by taking his contract for one season and would give up a chance at a free high end prospect if they try to hold Holland over the barrel too much.

Datsyuk's press conference coming up within the hour with all signs pointing to officially leaving the Detroit Red Wings and the NHL.

Thanks for all the memories Dats! You will always be one of my favorite players. It was a privilege watching him in his prime, hanging guys jock straps on the rafters.

#2678020 Cap may drop

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 17 June 2016 - 06:19 PM

$3 million raise is perfect for Tampa to re-sign Stamkos.. lol.

Am I the only one who wants Stamkos to go anywhere but Toronto? Obviously I think their plan all along was to trade away salary, tank it for the 1st pick, and then go after a guy like Stamkos in his prime. I hope the cap going up either means Tampa re-signs him or the wings can open up their wallets now.


#2677999 Official Offseason Thread

Moving Dats contract may not seem too bad, but on the other hand Howard's might be just the opposite.
 
Would love to see Stamkos in the Winged Wheel, but I just cannot see it happening for 1 reason, or another.
Is there a Dman available that would equal the calibre of Stamkos?


Not on Stamkos' level no. But if we could swing a trade for Trouba and sign Okposo or a similar forward, that Imo would be better than signing Stamkos. This team isn't one player from a cup unfortunately.

Rumoured contenders for Stamkos.

As much as I want Stamkos, these bottom feeder teams like Toronto are going to offer insane contracts to him and I don't know if we should be breaking the bank on one player. Part of me wants him but part of me would rather go after a top defensman and a upgrade at forward in free agency or trade instead.


#2677524 Petition to change Lil Caesars Arena to Gordie Howe Arena

Has a petition ever worked?


Yea a group of guys petitioned Great Britain for freedom a couple hundred years ago and it was pretty successful. 😂

Kind of greasy to exploit his death this quick and bully the owner. I dont like it.


The petition has been around since the day they announced the name of the new arena.


#2677405 Petition to change Lil Caesars Arena to Gordie Howe Arena

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 10 June 2016 - 06:32 PM

Mods please delete if this isn't allowed but saw an article on Fox Detroit that fans are trying to gain support to change the arena name to Gordie Howe Arena. Here is a link to the petition that was posted at #GordieHoweArena on Twitter. It already has a few thousand signatures and I figure with all the die hard fans on here we could easily double or triple that number.
