#2618578 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Holland was lying.

#2618598 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by ben_usmc on Yesterday, 10:24 PM

Weren't we $17 million under the cap?  Who gives a s*** if we gave Richards $3 mill for one year?

#2618586 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

An offensive defenseman under 30 with a RH shot on a short term deal?  Even if he does end up being subpar on the back end, it's really hard to find fault with this deal.  When you consider what's out there (or what isn't out there) and the prices that those guys are demanding, kind of hard to find any negatives to it.

Why not go for Beleskey?

Why would we want another David Clarkson? One good year? No thanks

Where he fit in DC isn't relevant to where he fits in here....they're two different teams....

In typical LGWs fashion, the thread about the Richards signing has more pages than the Mike Green one. 

#2618045 Phil Kessel Traded to Penguins

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on Yesterday, 01:34 PM

About as many as he normally does...maybe less. 


You know how many goals Chris Kunitz scored on Crosby's wing?  About as many as he did before he was on Crosby's wing. 


Hossa on Datsyuk's wing?  Same has before he was on Datsyuk's wing. 


Playing on Crosby's wing isn't going to make Kessel into Ovechkin. 



Hossa scored 29 in the year previous then scored 40 when paired with Datsyuk. Then in the years following 24, 25, 29. What was the difference? Playing with Datsyuk.


Kunitz has got as high as 35 with Crosby. Previously with the Ducks his highest was 25. Also the mean number is higher during his time with Crosby.


Did you not think someone would check it?

I'd rather have franson than Green but neither is top pairing calibre.

Wonder where Phaneuf will land

Phaneuf will probably stay put now.

#2617637 Alexander semin being bought out

Posted by MaynardJmzKeenan on 30 June 2015 - 05:37 PM

Taking on Semin would be hard to swallow....

#2617623 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by joesuffP on 30 June 2015 - 05:20 PM

From this day forward no red wing shall wear #90... That's what you get for trying to get around using #19 or #9
Give me a break... Nyquist has scored more goals in the last two years than Tatar plus is a better all around player. I would be happy if we locked him up long term after he played for peanuts the last two years

If Holland did kick the tires on Semin, then no way should Cleary be signed or Franzen take a spot up UNLESS he is 200% healthy, not even 100% Franzen is worth gambling on. But even without those two, we still need a spot or Pulkkinen and Ferraro/Callahan. There just isn't enough room to sign a UFA.  With the wasting of Smith, tomorrow promises to be very boring for Detroit fans...

Not surprised one bit, but still disappointing. Standing pat when making first round exits is not okay. All other teams are constantly aiming to improve any way they can. Wings have more prospects than they can keep, why not use some to bring in a quality player? More teams are passing the Wings up because they're willing to take chances and make moves. At least find someone to dump Weiss on. I'd even be happy with that and clearing space.


If we had an aging roster....I agree. When you are re-building, standing pat and letting your players develop is not a bad thing.

I've never heard of the word kachina until now.

Must be amazing to be clairvoyant.


People on here pretend to have inside info or something, it's quite hilarious. Holland and co deal with real data that we only wish we had access to.
