#2675191 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by romagoth on Today, 03:43 PM

Just curious .... Who would most of you want to keep if one of marchenko or ouellet were to be traded in a deal?

Gotta think sproul due to being right handed and 6'3 and capable of helping us on the powerplay we won't risk losing him on waivers and we're gonna give him a look since we had trouble scoring

So I'm thinking marchenko/ouellet one of those will be dealt ... Marchenko is in the NHL now and none will put up huge numbers but I'd very much rather keep ouellet , he reminds me a bit of Vlasic

As for Jensen ... Anyone have any opinions on him? He won NCAA award for best dman I believe , then a few years back he missed a whole season I think and he's gonna be 26 so gotta think he gonna be a depth guy? If someone claims him he'd have to be in the lineup correct? Can't see anyone putting him in the NHL right away unless he plays great in the exhibition games

Marchenko and Sproul are both righties. I would really hate to lose any of them without at least seeing what Sproul and Ouellet can do at the NHL level. I like Marchenko a lot as a defensive d-man who makes good decisions and doesn't turn the puck over.


Unfortunately at this point it looks like Jensen won't get his chance in the NHL, at least with Detroit. He is the only one of the group who was never called up, even Sproul played one game in Detroit a couple of seasons ago.

Rather keep Oullette. Higher ceiling.

I'd much rather keep Ouellet and Sproul, because both have much higher ceilings than Marchenko my opinion. Unfortunately though, I think Ouellet may end up being the odd man out. Sproul is the main one I want to keep, even if he's just the number 7 next season. I still have high hopes for him, and I think he could become a potential replacement for Green in the next year or two. Jensen, I think will be exposed to waivers, and I do think he'd probably clear.

#2675117 50 contracted players

Posted by krsmith17 on Yesterday, 06:42 PM

They wouldn't need to. I realize this is a thread about our 50 man roster, but I wasn't just talking about who should be on that list. I'd prefer Miele not count toward our 50 man roster as well, since he's not a prospect, and he'll never play a game with the big club.

Similar to Pulkkinen. Ability to score against lower competition, but game doesn't translate against bigger, faster, smarter players.

That may be the case in the end, but Frk is bigger and does play a heavier game than Pulk does. He won't be pushed off the puck as easily, which may give him a shot at sticking around.

He also works his ass off and has the right attitude on always trying to be better. He is a guy who will always work on the flaws in his game.

I hope we keep Frk as our 13th/14th forward going into next season.

If we're trading for a defenseman, Vatanen is way down on my want list, but that's just my opinion. I think he's overrated...

#2675024 Fixing this mess....

Posted by kliq on 03 May 2016 - 05:42 PM

Yes the risk is higher. If you look at most top 50 Dmen lists for the league, it is about a 50-50 split between 1st round picks and 2nd round picks.


Its actually even less then that, I posted this a few months back. Ill post again due to the relevance:

This was based on the top 20 D-man (based on total points).


1/20 drafted in top 5

2/20 drafted between 6-10

3/20 drafted between 11-15

1/20 drafted between 16-30

13/20 drafted out of the first round/not drafted


1) Erik Karlsson -15th overall

2) Brent Burns – 20th overall

3) Kris Letang – 62nd overall

4) John Klingberg – 131st overall

5) Roman Josi – 38th overall

6) P.K. Subban 43rd overall

7) Oliver Ekman-Larsson – 6th overall

8) Mark Giordano – undrafted

9) Tyson Barrie – 64th overall

10) Ryan Suter – 7th overall  

11) Shea Weber – 49th overall

12) Drew Doughty 2nd overall

13) Dustin Byfuglien - 245th overall

14) Brent Seabrook – 14th overall

15) Duncan Keith – 54th overall

16) T.J. Brodie – 114th overall

17) Andrei Markov – 162nd overall

18) Keith Yandle – 105th overall

19) Shayne Gostisbehere – 78th overall

20) Kevin Shattenkirk – 14th overall

If we could get some help on the top 2 lines would love to have a third line of Abby-Z-Pulk. Pulk gets to play with a great corner guy in Abby, a strong playmaker in Z. I think that could be a deadly third next year. Plus obviously PP time will help if he is utilized for his one timer. Only takes a few goals from that dot for teams to respect him and take him away. That will open up more for the other 4 guys.

I believe the guy could get 20+ next year in this role

I hope we can move his contract, but if it requires us giving up good assets, then screw it.


We are not going to win the cup next year, so why sacrifice the future for cap relief for 1 year. If we are in a situation where its either sign Stamkos AND give us assets, or keep the caphit and not get Stamkos, then sure I would do it. But if its a situation where its trading his contract to get cap space, then getting more Qunicey's and Richards, I would rather not lose the future assets unless we are talking a 7th round pick or something pretty insignificant (ie. a very low-end prospect).

#2674898 The Holiday tradition: 2016 Draft thoughts.....

Posted by Richdg on 02 May 2016 - 02:59 PM

I personally would trade the 16 to the jets if possible for the 22 and 36

Been reading up on some draft stuff online and checking out players

Sure the 2 Finns going in the top 3 everyone knows about but I seen a few others who caught my eye that we can look at later in the draft

Number 9 euro rated prospect henrik borgstrom , gonna turn 19 later after the draft and put up some good numbers in Finland , like 50+ pts I believe and is going the NCAA route next season, and he stands at 6'3

The other one I believe was ranked 28th Otto koivula who's only 17 (turns 18 in September ) who's 6'4 220 and put up 50+ pts already http://www.elitepros...p?player=241338

I know most kids usually get passed over at that age but I'd love for us to risk it and hope he turns out to be a star

As for defense there's 15 euro ranked Lucas carlsson who went undrafted last season and is gonna turn 19, and Stepan falkovsky who also went undrafted last season and stands at 6'7 and came down to North America to play in the juniors this last season

Also like Dennis cholowski, Lucas johansen(Ryan johansen'a brother),Frederic allard,James greenway and Kenny Johnson (jack johnsons brother)

Gonna keep reading around, alot of info out there .... I like to look at 30+ ranked guys and some euro guys and look for possible gems

Greenway would be a good 3rd rd pick if we had one....... Going to college which gives us extra time on the development side.

#2674672 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by Number19 on 30 April 2016 - 04:12 PM

Radulov would not score less than 40 points in the NHL in a full season. That just won't happen even in our anemic offense. The guy is a two-way (this I'm not sure about but he did gather Selke votes in the NHL) stud who dominates his league and in international competition. When the NHL stars went over there during the lockout his production was right below Malkin and above guys like Datsyuk.  It's not unreasonable to think he'd be a top 12-15 winger in the NHL near the level of someone like Panarin or Kucharov. Most russian fans put him above those guys anyway. I don't think he'd produce as well as Panarin beause not every team has a Kane to play with. The issue isn't this guys talent.. it's that he's a grade A ******. Typically that isn't our style.

50-58 points on a team like ours. 60-70 points on a top 10 team. And in today's unfortunate NHL that's big time first line status.

You're the only person I've ever heard call Radulov soft.  Makes me think you're just throwing around pejoratives in an attempt to justify your dislike for him post hoc. 


Radulov is a lot of things, but "soft" isn't one.  He's very tenacious and aggressive for a goal scorer.  He's not likely to punch anybody, sure, but the guys ain't "soft".  Maybe an *******, but not soft.

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 29 April 2016 - 11:45 PM

You really expect Fedorov, who is the GM of Radulov's current team, and who is trying to re-sign him  for his club, would help Detroit sign him instead?


I don't think that's what he meant.  Fedorov has ties to Detroit.  Of course, he wants him back on his club, but if Radulov decides to leave for the NHL (which he already has publicly stated), then Fedorov might be instrumental in giving Holland strong feedback on the kind of player he has become in the KHL and what kind of career he can have in the NHL at this point.
