I personally think this is babcocks last year in detroit ... I'd be shocked to see him back

In Topic: Mantha's Injury

Well looks like he's not gonna get his chance this year unless we suck or we have a ton of injuries again

Hope he comes back 100% and stays healthy

Glad that's done with ... Contracts low is say but that's only cause it's a 2 yr deal I'd expect him to get 4-5 per next contract if he keeps progressing

In Topic: Who should get cut/traded by game 1 of the season?

Starting Mantha, Jurco, Ouellet, Marchenko and so on on the starting roster, sends guys to waivers. That's throwing away scraps. Giving up players for nothing.
My Callahan comment was not meant to be directed at you personally

Your right about that but sadly every time we have extra parts we always lose them through waivers and get nothing back ... Seems to be the redwings way

Just wanna see the best possible lineup we can have

uhhhh because the preseason is not the real NHL. Half a teams roster is AHL players or worse in the preseason.  Players that must clear waivers Ishould be given at least 5 to 10 games in real NHL matches before deciding the fate of possibly their entire career with the team...
Demanding Mantha and Jurco play on opening night is the definition of impatient fandom. They can and should wait 3 games, 5 games, or even 10 so the rest of team can be correctly evaluated.

I got nothing against mantha starting in the ahl I'm just saying if he starts lighting it up every game I can see us giving him a chance to start the season here ( I believe we got 9 games as a trial run before we lose a yr on his contract )

As for jurco I think he's proven he can play in the nhl last year and has great chemistry with Tatar and sheahan .... Unfortunetly because we always have a ton of depth veteran guys who are a dime a dozen we always keep someone who could be up a lot sooner down in Grand Rapids

IDK who dnumber9 is, but I gotta say I like the guy!
A trade involving those guys or others like them would be awesome, but it's not gonna happen. No one wants to give up anything good for our scraps. Phasing those guys out and bring up the kids is not a one season/preseason process. They're going to be phased out throughout this season and the coming ones.
It's a brand new season. Ferraro Callahan Cleary and Kindl could all surprise us and come back better then ever. Well-liked guys like Tatar could suddenly disappoint. You just don't know. Ericsson surprised everyone. Hudler disappointed everyone. I think all our scraps deserve a fair shot to prove they're not what we have pigeon-holed them to be. If they don't do that I have no problem sending them down for a kid. Lets just be patient and honor the players who deserve a shot.
The sudden eagerness to throw Callahan to the wolves particularly irks me. Highly praised by LGW throughout last season for his goal scoring and toughness in GR, now suddenly hie' expendable. People have 2 minutes memories.

I didn't suggest throwing away scraps as you put it in order to get a big trade , just said unless guys step up our only other way to make something happen would be through a big trade (Tatar,pulkkinen,1st rounder! you d ... Whatever)

And I didn't mention anything negative bout Callahan , I fact I wanted him here last season because he's the type of guy we don't really have on the team , just seeing all the players and spots and I just can't see him getting a spot unfortunetly

As you said though we'll see what happens at training camp
