#2621478 Free agents this off season

Smart move for the Habs.


1 year deal on the cheap...A motivated, and healthy Semin could easily hit 30  goals.

make it or break it season for semin's nhl career, imo.

#2621338 Wings lose scout to leafs

Posted by rick zombo on 23 July 2015 - 02:20 PM

Yeah I saw this. Babs is really starting to piss me off by taking some of our coaching and staff members.. 


Goes to show how popular Babs really was among the organization. 


Yeah well. I'd rather lose a scout and a coach or two than watch Glendenning and Miller play 18 minutes a night again this season.

#2621113 Pulkkinen re-signs.... 1 year deal

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 July 2015 - 04:45 PM

so possible big raises next year PLUS 4 defensmen out of exemptions...oh boy!

#2621086 Pulkkinen re-signs.... 1 year deal

Posted by krsmith17 on 21 July 2015 - 12:55 PM

There's no doubt he will be with the big club. He would have to clear waivers to get sent down, and he would definitely get claimed. I'm expecting him to be a fixture on the 3rd line and 2nd power-play unit under Blashill.

#2620592 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by krsmith17 on 15 July 2015 - 10:42 AM

I think both Jurco and Pulkkinen will sign for under a mil each. Somewhere around the $900K range, Jurco likely getting slightly more.


I think both will be 3rd liners with some time up on the 2nd, when the inevitable injury hits... Pulkkinen will likely see a lot more time on the power-play. I'm going to say Jurco nets 12 and Pulkkinen nets 17 (over half coming with the man advantage...).

So Nill swaps Daley for Sharp, then replaces Daley by bringing in Oduya. Good to see an old friend playin the Hawks.

#2619988 Gustav Nyquist signed 4-Year Deal $4.75 mill AAV

Doesn't count if your 5'8 and when you hit someone your the one that falls :P

Where did you see that? Nhlnumbers says we got 1.2 million left , and I thought we had around 5 million before is signing so I can't see how we'd have 4 million left to sign jurco and pulks

NHLnumbers, GeneralFanager, and CapFriendly all have different cap totals and include different contracts in their totals. 


So, I used the contract numbers available (which are all correct) for the players that will probably be on the roster and a calculator. 


Also, you have to remember that we can be over the cap (forget the exact %) and just have to be compliant by the start of the season. 

I fully expect that we will be over until we trim the roster.  I'm just pointing out that currently, we would be cap compliant with Franzen on the roster with Jurco and Pulks signed and with Marchenko and XO in GR.  So, we don't have to fret too much about moving someone right away.

I agree LeftWinger. Blashill will absolutely use him correctly, something Babcock never did. And that's exactly where I'd like him to slot in, on the 3rd line with Sheahan and Jurco and on the left faceoff dot on the power-play. He will be a huge threat if he is used the same way Blash used him in Grand Rapids, but I think we all know that Calder candidate is out of the question...
Kip, you've watched him play? I haven't... Is he any good? I heard he has quite the shot...

That little one trick that you speak of... He can do that better than anyone in the Red Wings organization. You don't trade that away unless you're getting something similar in return (which we wouldn't). I'm not saying, he's going to score 40 goals every year and he is irreplaceable... What I am saying is that it's ridiculous that he is getting written off after 34 games in which he was very poorly utilized, knowing that we have a new coach that actually used him properly and he produced... a lot...

#2619352 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by marcaractac on 07 July 2015 - 08:23 AM

Well the rangers are shopping Yandle. However seeing as they gave up so much just to put him on the third pair, I doubt we will give up whatever they are asking

We also don't need Yandle now that we have Green.

Franson is a right-handed Quincey with a better shot. That's it. Quincey is the more physical player of the two as well.

I don't get the obsession.

Franson isn't very good defensively either. I'm with you. I'm happy we got green over Cody, at least great is great offensively
