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

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.

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.

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.

I think it's safe to say that if Chychrun didn't fall to us then this deal would have never happened. If we somehow possibly sign Stamkos, years from now we could be looking back at this night, where the league passing on Chychrun who may end up being a dud, saved the franchise.

I bet all the Holland haters will still figure out a way to give Bowman the credit for this


What people don't realize is Bowman laid the groundwork for this trade years ago







Lol

Come on Flames please take Howard. He isn't as good as Bishop but he is still a serviceable number 1 who just had a rough season. And he would come much much cheaper than bishop if we retain salary.
