#2681739 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Nielson: 32 younger than Datsyuk: 37 
Vanek: 32 younger than Richards: 36
 
How did we get older? Ott is 33 which isn't even that old and he won't play much. He only played 21 games last year.
I don't think anyone realistically thinks AA won't be on the team. I think Ott will be a GR call up.


If plan is to play AA on the 4th line then for him is better to play for Grand Rapids.
I can't see Helm (almost $4M) playing on the 4th line... and people joked about paying Martin $2.5M for playing on the 4th line...

The way I see it, no players were taken on outside of Neilson that has to be protected for the expansion draft. If Vanek plays well and decided Detroit is a good fit, he can re-sign after the draft. So on the bright side, at least we shouldn't lose anyone meaningful when that time comes.

So Holland talked a load of bulls*** at the end of year presser. Change the makeup of the team?

Kenny, tell me how re-signing Helm and Miller changes this teams chances at winning to Cup? We basically traded Chychrun and Datsyuk for Nielsen and Cholowski.

If nothing else changes, he needs to be fired. Until then I will no longer be a fan.

I'd like the Neilson signing a lot more if it was 4 years for a little more money. It's 4 years from now that concerns me. 

 

The good thing about him is he is durable. So hoping no past injury issues means he can still be effective post 35.

I want Nielsen here but he's not THE guy. We still need a star. Hopefully he and Larkin develop good chemistry.

5.5 isn't terrible. Helm is a $4 million player and Nielsen is twice the player.

Helm isn't a $4 mil player, Holland overpaid him.
I can't express what I truly feel about Holland right now without getting banned.

McGinn to Yotes

3 years, 3.3 million.  Another solid signing that Holland was asleep for.  Could have added another dimension, but same old same old.

5 years al almost $4 mil for a checking line player with delusions of grandeur. Ffs. I'm fully on board with the fire Holland crowd now. If he gives Neilson a 5+year deal, I'll drive to Detroit and kick Holland right in the nuts.

Signing Neilson is nothing more than a desperate attempt to keep the streak alive. Which is all we have to look forward to until the streak finally ends.


#2680918 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Posted by romagoth on Today, 09:36 AM

This front office is just unbelievable. We need change so let's re-sign Miller and Helm.
