#2618780 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

I have a feeling Sheahan is going to pass up Richards as the 2nd center sooner rather than later.

 

I agree. Thinking he might break out to a legit 2nd line center. Maybe unpopular but I'll add Jurco to the list of possible breakouts.

I wonder if Cleary's wife will enjoy the weather in Toronto?

Looks like Richards is our insurance in case Dats and Z get injured. For that the pricetag is a little bit hefty for my taste but we have the caproom and with the 1-year term I can't see anything wrong with that signing. Nothing exciting, but nothing disappointing either.

In typical LGWs fashion, the thread about the Richards signing has more pages than the Mike Green one.

I am too.   And I can't see Richards coming here to be the third line center behind Sheahan. 

 

I mean, if I think of it as swapping Weiss for Richards it kind of seems like a win.  But I wouldn't have considered this a pressing need relative to the blueline or scoring winger.

 

Why not just move Helm back to center for the duration of Datsyuk's injury, and sign a winger.  Could Helm possibly be less productive than Richards' 36 points in 76 games for the Hawks?

Kenny takes two steps forward one step back. He just can't help himself. It's a fetish. 




#2618281 Now for a #2 C.

Posted by rick zombo on 01 July 2015 - 03:40 PM

Just thinking out load here. the BL is set. the one big are of need is a #2 C/big RHed winger. As of right now it is easy to see the following lineup:

 

Z-datsyuk-Abby

Nyquist-open-tatar

Jurco-Sheahan-Pulks

Anderson-Glendening-Miller

ferraro-open

 

Dekeyser-Green

Kronwall-Ericsson

Smith-marchenko

Lashoff or Kindl

 

Howard/Mrazek

 

We could keep 8 d or move Kindl/KFQ. If Z is the #2 C then we need a top 6 winger. What we don't have is a big RHed physical guy that scores. We also have helm who is kinda without a true position. he is a checking C when used correctly, but Glendening does the same job for 1/3 the price. We also have the cap room for a big contract.

Thoughts? Hopes? Dreams?

 

Why do people keep forgetting about Helm? Also, Franzen could be in the line-up opening night.

Zetterberg datsyuk abdelkader
Tatar sheahan nyquist
Helm glendening pulkkinen
Jurco anderssen miller

Ferraro Franzen + richards ? = 15 guys ... Doesn't include Callahan,larkin or another rookie having a chance of getting in


So if we get richards who gets dealt? Anderssen and? I hope we don't sacrifice a pulkkinen/jurco for a miller

 

Not even when Babcock was coach. Certainly not with Blashill. He's probably got big plans for Pulkinnen and Jurco. 




#2618198 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by dragonballgtz on 01 July 2015 - 03:13 PM

Maybe Quincey gets moved during the season? There is always a team that's completely decimated by injury early on in the season. Don't think he gets resigned anyways

 

I just see Quincey not being re-signed at the end of the year. His $4.25M being invested into our younger players that are out of options (waiver exempt).




#2618170 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by marcaractac on 01 July 2015 - 03:00 PM

This move, along with a new coach will completely change the makeup of our defense. A lot more puck moving skill, ability for a much more up tempo game, a lot more d jumping into the rush. All while still having guys capable of being responsible in their own end. I'm pumped that the hopes and dreams of getting Franson will be put to rest.

It appears there are a bunch of guys not getting the offers they expected. 

Good! Maybe it will help get some of the ridiculous contracts of the past back under control....

Pipe down, or no ice cream for you!


As a fitness maven, I would prefer greek yogurt with a side of dark chocalate shavings.

Keep waiting.


I don't wanna!

Lebrun just said on TSN the interest in Green has been less than what he expected. Mentioned thinking it'll be us, but the Bruins are still hanging around and if they decide to panic last minute and overpay him, please do Sweeney.


Don't give this fool 5-6 mil!!! For the love of all that is Holy
