#2421004 Ilitch reveals plan for new $450m, 18,000-seat Red Wings arena

What do you guys think the new arena should be called? Please don't call it something after a business like Maxi Pad Arena or something haha

#2420722 Grand Rapids Griffins Win Calder Cup! 5-2 win in game 6

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 18 June 2013 - 09:04 PM

He had 16 goals in the playoffs. 

16 goals in only 24 games that's insane! He will be a Red Wing next year If I have to pick him up from Grand Rapids and drive him to Detroit myself!

#2418740 What would you give up for Malkin?

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 08 June 2013 - 10:37 PM

If they were going to move him-doubt it, I would give whatever they wanted. Malkin has and will continue to out score most of our forwards combined. He has 560 career points in 458 regular season games. In the playoffs he has 97 points in 82 games. That my friends is production. Proven production. That is better than either Datsyuk or Zetterberg. Malkin would be our best player and it isn't even close. At 26-soone to be 27, he has 8-10 GREAT years left.
On the open market he would get a 7 year (max) 70 million deal. If he resigns with his current team, they can go to 8 years. This is big. As for paying him, how much wasted money are the wings currently carrying? Bert-2 million, Sammy-3 million, Q-almost 4 million, Cola-2.5 million, Cleary-3 million. That is 14.5 million just on those guys.
But we would have to move our prospects. So? At best 1 out of 5 ever make it. Most don't. Nyquist, tatar, and Anderson will never produce the same amount as Malkin. Heck he might even produce MORE playing with his countryman and Ideal-Datsyuk.
Our issue this past year was O. Adding a 50+ goal guy fixes that overnight.
Now wil this ever happen? No. Holland doesn't have the stones for this type of move anymore. This would be a better move than when we traded Primeau for Shanahan.Yes Kieth turned into a great player-before the head injuries, but Shanny got us 4 cups. In the end that is what matters. Cups. Malkin makes us a cup contender. The others don't.

Unbelievably great player but I'd rather have four solid lines then two great lines and two lines of scrubs cuz we don't have the prospects or cap space.

People are still talking about this? I figured the first 15 times it was shot down and explained why it would be a horrible idea would end the thread. Guess not...

Do you think if Boston wins the cup, Jagr sends a nice fruit basket to Iginla?

Pittsburgh adds 2 captains and a defenseman at the trade deadline and totally forgot that their goalies are Swiss cheese.

Remember back when we were discussing prospects during the Parise/Suter sweepstakes and people were saying how stacked Minnesota's farm system was....look at the talent we have in Grand Rapids. It's salivating!!!

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 31 May 2013 - 07:59 PM

Sammy, Bert, and Cleary need to go. Then add a top 6 forward and I'm happy.

#2416636 Draft position?

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 31 May 2013 - 05:58 PM

I hope we look back five years from now and say "I'm glad we lost to Chicago in game 7 and got the 18th pick because (insert players name) is a superstar.

from his official FB page:


Pavel Datsyuk
Dear Friends, Thank You for the support you have shown me and The Red Wings. I look forward playing here for many years to come.

Hands down, best Facebook status I have ever seen

#2414733 This is what tonights winner will have to deal with

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 29 May 2013 - 05:42 PM

This is what's wrong with the game. Until they only call a penalty on the dive this will continue. A player knows that if he dives, the worst thing that will happen is 4 on 4 hockey. It's ridiculous and has to change.

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 28 May 2013 - 11:12 PM

Not sure who will be a tougher feat, beating Chicago or beating the refs but a Wings win is gonna go through hank. He took his game to a new level the last couple of games of the regular season to get in, in Game 7 of the Ducks series, and he will be a force tomorrow night.
