#2525961 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 26 June 2014 - 08:14 PM

Like who?  Everyone acts like because we lost out on Parise and Suter, which was solely due to geography, that we somehow aren't a "destination" team.  Name all these top free agents that Holland pursued that the Wings didn't get.
Weiss and Alfredsson were the top two UFA's last year and the Wings signed them both.  Then before that every other team in the league was salivating over Danny DeKeyser.  Who got him?  Oh, yeah, that team no one wants to go to.  

People seem to forget about the Dekeyser signing. I think that will turn out to be our biggest steal of the last 5-10 years
I would like Niskanen as long as the contract doesn't exceed $6.00M AAV

#2519536 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Oh for sure. Just trying to keep expectations in check when it comes to Sproul automatically being an improvement over Kindl and Lashoff is all lol. I have no doubt that will end up being the case.  I just figure it may very well take some time.

Even if he isn't an instant improvement, at least he can move the puck and create offense. I don't think I have unrealistic expectations, but I understand the concern considering the mentality of other posters

I like this list for skilled winger side. But we have those covered. We need the Shanahan type of winger side. And Abdelkader and his 26 pts a season is NOT the answer.

Skilled wingers still fill the holes better than defensemen do
And Callahan would fill the need for a physical winger

Plus I think we need a scorer more than we need a big winger

#2512797 Howard = Average

He's been good down the stretch until this game. Is Quick below average then since he's let in 12 goals in 2 games?

Right after he avoids charas stick, he takes about 4 steps in one second and just explodes around him. So impressive

I think we need more Swedes.
Does anyone know where we can find more Swedes?

This playoff push is becoming the race to lose less games, not the race to win more. Everyone is losing!

Our chances moved from 35.2% to 68.9% since this thread was created. This thread must be good luck

#2500384 Backes on playing against Malkin and Crosby

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 24 March 2014 - 11:58 AM

That's pretty much been Detroit's strategy against opponents top line over the last few games, putting Glendenning against Crosby and then against Minnesota's top line. It's definitely worked.

Backes would be a fun red wing to watch
