#2421446 Tsn:Off-Season Game Plan: Detroit Red Wings

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 22 June 2013 - 11:16 PM

We need to weed ppl out before we add anything

True, and that's much easier said than done

I'd pay him to do it.

Tuukka Rask is one of the most likeable goalies in the NHL

i still think Jack Edwards should be in the booth calling the finals with Edzo

We'll never get that lucky. We're already blessed with the occasional Roenick vs milbury "kerfuffle"


#2420117 Wings interested in Weiss

No way he wins this one, sadly. I would love a datsyuk vs datsyuk final


#2419277 Which UFA would help the Wings the most?

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 11 June 2013 - 05:23 PM

So, heard a stat today about Horton. Boston hasn't lost a series he has played in. He was hurt last year when they lost.
 
He also has 34 points in 37 playoff games, and a +32!!!! That is insane playoff hockey.
 
I guess I posted here cause I was getting the impression from other threads that people were so ga ga over BIckell instead of players like this... c'mon man. I am not sure Bickell current play has gotten him to the Horton level of salary yet, since Horton is doing just as well, but if both were equal, you'd be crazy to choose Bickell over Horton.

Horton would ne great if your willing to for up 6mill+ per year for likely several years. Not sure Detroit can afford that unless they buy guys out or trade. I would love Horton though

Yes, on shorter term contracts though...if Franzen were on a 5 year deal, he'd be topping $8M a season for his (lack of) production.  The only reason he is at $3.9M is because of the 11 years.  If all those other guys were also on 11 year contract, they'd be in the $3M's as well.  There is nothing valuable about Franzen's contract, because we are stuck with him for the next 7 years....
 
 
Lets look at James Neal, currently making $5M per season.  Similar numbers, he's up and down has actually scored 40 before, but he averages in the mid 20's.  He signed a 6yr $30M contract.  Franzen singed an 11 year $43M contract...who has the better value, Franzen cost us $13M more...
 
Lets see what Franzen would be making if he had signed a 6yr deal....oh geez, $7.1M per season.  Now what about Neal's $30M on an 11 year contract? $2.7M per.  Again, there is no value to Franzen contract. Period. I'd rather have Neal at $30M tens times over Franzen at $43M...
 
So who is more valuable? Franzen's 28 goals at $7.1M on a 6 year deal or Neal's $5M on a 6 year deal?  Franzen's $3.9M on an 11 year deal or Neal's $2.7M on an 11 year deal?  Franzen's $43M or Neal's $30M?  All three ways, Franzen is a waste of money...

What you said made absolutely no sense. If Neal signed an 11 year contract, it would be for a hell of a lot more than 30 mill. If franzen signed a 5 year contract, it would be for a hell of a lot less than 43 mill.

Once Nepal's 5 years are up, he'll sign another contract. You realize that right? Over the course of 11 years, he will make a lot more than franzen

Bruins in 5. Defense is too good

Your decision on where to put dekeyser was way out of left field....


#2418067 ECF - (4) Boston Bruins vs. (1) Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 05 June 2013 - 11:33 PM

Gotta respect the effort by both teams in this one.

-Campbell's penalty kill (which may have been his last shift in these playoffs) was incredible

- Crosby was playing like a man posessed on that shift in 2nd OT. He came very close to winning the game himself. Except...

- Johnny Boychuck made 2 insane diving blocks to prevent Crosby from ending the game and making this a series.

- The goalies were incredible tonight. Both of them. Rask has officially proven that he can be a playoff goalie. He's proven that he has grown a ton since that debacle in 2010

Maybe the best game of the playoffs so far.

Looking forward to teaching these teams a lesson or two in the east next year!

The bullls*** rule potentially affecting another game. I hate the pens, but this goal is just ridiculous. They really need to just treat it like an icing, yet they don't even address it when they propose all those other rule changes

Trade: Quincey (He is good (sometimes.) but highly overpaid. 

Buy out: Bert, Sammy

Resign: Filppula, Nyquist, Smith, Kindl, Brunner, Andersson, Cleary, Miller. 

Sign: Stalberg/Bickell/Ryder and a defensemen 

 

Howard - Monster

 

Kronwall - Big E

Smith - Dekeyser

Colaiacovo - Kindl

Quincey(Or someone new?) - Lashoff

 

Zetterberg - Pasha - Bickell/Stalberg/Ryder

Nyquist - Filppula - Franzen

Brunner - Helm - Cleary

Tootoo - Andersson - Abdelkader

Eaves - Emmerton - Miller 

 

Maybe Tatar is ready for a place in our first lineup and if, i want him to play in top 6. Otherwise i rather se him play lots in the Grand Rapids and gets called up from time to time to show what he can bring into our lineup.

I wouldn't dismantle that third line. If anything, I would do Brunner-helm-tatar, or Brunner-helm-nyquist

 

I like miller, but he probably wont be re-signed

 

We wont get a defenseman unless we trade at least 2 away




#2417370 Wings interested in Stalberg and Bickell

The East might be more physical than the West, but come on.

 

It's not like we're going from Ice Capades to Slapshot.

Exactly! People seem to think we're going to be walked all over in the east. I don't even think the east is that much different than the west. They have Boston, but St. Louis, LA and San Jose aren't slouches in the hitting department.
