#2378769 Ericsson for Courturier?

Posted by Guest on 02 April 2013 - 03:29 PM

And where is Jimmy right now?


He's of of the top ten goalies in the league, that's where.


That said, I agree that Mrazek and Ouellet would be an overpayment. Couturier's future potential is by no means assured either, and his level of play this season greatly leaves something to be desired.

#2377805 Holland: "We don't need depth...Need a top guy"

Posted by Jesusberg on 01 April 2013 - 04:38 PM

April Fools'? I'm surprised Holland is actually admitting we need top six talent. I'd be pleasantly surprised if he can add something for the right price.

#2376716 Wings sign D Dan DeKeyser to 2-year deal

I don't see how stating a simple fact qualifies one as a downer.


you're almost always a downer

#2374422 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

If Wings don't sign him, it's going to be a show on this forum. *Grabbing the popcorn*

#2374316 I hate to admit this but....

Signing DeKeyser and giving him a shot is better than doing nothing and letting him go to another team. Especially with the Lightning in on him, who we'll be playing with next year and already signed Andrej Sustr.

DeKeyser could very easily come in and play for the Red Wings immediately. They have a lot of bodies on defense, but with Quincey out, that 6th spot is quite attainable right now. White is horrible and was a healthy scratch for a long stretch. Huskins is a nice depth player and Colaiacovo is always a health concern.

Stocks in Detroit area hospitals set record highs in price when his signing was announced.

I think you should have stopped after "doom and gloom." Support the team, enjoy the ride, and hope for the best.

#2370879 Nyquist reassigned to GR

Posted by Guest on 18 March 2013 - 08:00 PM

Emmerton will likely be scratched and Andersson will move down to the 4th line.


Emmerton has had a decent season, but ultimately he brings less to the table than any other forward on the roster.

#2370516 Brunner downgraded to the third line!?

Posted by LeftWinger on 17 March 2013 - 01:30 PM

Well, what is being lost in this discussion is that finally Dan Cleary has been put back on the 3rd line!

#2365015 Trading Filppula

Posted by ogreslayer on 05 March 2013 - 12:49 PM

If this happens (Cleary re-signed and Fil out) I will personally find Holland and commit him to a mental institution


You might have to wait until he recovers from having his legs broken by the rest of LGW.

#2367696 Brunner to go with Tootoo and Tatar?

Posted by LeftWinger on 10 March 2013 - 08:47 PM

...wait, I though Datsyuk was already centering the 4th line...

#2365845 Time to pull the trigger on J-Bo?

Posted by LeftWinger on 06 March 2013 - 07:45 PM

Count me among those that would rather Bogosian. 


I don't have any interest in Bouwmeester at all. He would provide a little offence from the back-end but he would hurt the team defensively.


Dekeyser is an interesting option but even if we sign him he wouldn't be on the roster this season...We have too many defenceman as it is. Maybe after a trade we could fit him in but I don't think we'd even see him as a regular next year.


Danny D would most definitely be a depth signing for this season, getting a few games in and maybe, MAYBE a couple of playoff games....next season though, with what looks like White headed out, even if Kindl re-signs there will be a spot for him because even if Colaiacovo doesn't get waived, he would get hurt and that would allow Danny a spot on the roster.  Honestly there is no one else in GR ready to come up, as good as most of our D prospects are, they are all still at their junior clubs or college. Danny is 23 years old tomorrow and is ready to step in to an NHL spot. I hope it's with Detroit.... He can rotate with the ever present #7/#6 Kindl... Besides in two years, depending on what we are paying Howard/Brunner/Filppula/Smith/Andersson/Nyquist and Kindl, we have to re-sign Ericsson, Quincey (probably) and Dastyuk, not to mention players like Sheahan an Ferraro who would likely see some time up here now and then, having a nice EL contract with Dekeyser would provide some much needed cap relief in 2014...
