Pulkkinen got 2 goals and got player of the game and led Finland to a 3-2 victory over larkin's u.s.a

More reason not to just throw him away in a deal to move up a few spots at the draft ... If he sticks around he needs a real shot and ice time , no way he shouldn't be getting 20 goals in the NHL

As of now, it looks like only Arizona, Carolina, and NJ might need help getting to the floor. All of those teams have a lot of spots to fill, so they might get there anyway. We can hope that more than one of them needs help, but if there's only one team that ends up having any interest, they could ask for a lot if they think we're more desperate than they are.
 
Most likely it will be fairly cheap. I would think less value than even Pulk. But you never know. Could be that no one even needs it.


Well if no one wants datsyuks contract at a good price to save cash then f*** them ... Pavel only has one year left , we can free up cap space by getting rid of Howard and hopefully Ericsson

And we have Quincey and Richards off the books this year .... We won't get ripped off , I'd much rather use pulkkinen in a package deal or give him some real ice time and see what he can do , than a throw in to get rid of a one year contract

I absolutely DONT think now is the time to trade for a defenseman. Sure we need one, but no high end defenseman are available for trade. Shattenkirk? Vatanen? They're no better than Yandle and you wouldn't have to lose assets to get him. What we definitely don't need to do is throw away good assets, from a rebuilding team, on a second tier defenseman. Magically put PK Subban on our current team and we still aren't contenders. We need a good defenseman to be hitting his stride in 3-5 years, when Larkin, AA, Mantha, Tatar, Nyquist, etc. are all in their primes. Not next year.

If we could get a trouba or a young defensemen with some potential like dumba or one of the ducks/flyers many defensive prospects then we need to do it and replenish the prospect pool for defensemen

As for shattenkirk or vatanen ? I personally think there a bit overrated , sure put up some points but there not known for playing solid defense ... I would take one of them ONLY if mike green was traded elsewhere .. But at 6 million per year for green that's highly unlikely unless we'd be eating cap space

As for the comments around about zetterberg ... Yes he had a bad year but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and give him another season to see how he performs before saying he's done , think he deserves that

I think if he's healthy all season long maybe giving him a few days off here and there so he plays around 74 games will benefit the redwings during the season and playoffs ... Same with kronwall

Tough year for the vets but with Jagr still performing I think zetterberg can still bring something ... Maybe put him with athanasiou and mantha ... Just 2 kids like Jagr has , maybe that'll get him going

I'd re-sign Helm at $3M for 5 years to play in the bottom 6 in a heartbeat. I don't care if he's 3rd line center or 4th line winger, he's worth every bit of that for his speed, forechecking and penalty killing in my opinion. No way he's looking for anywhere close to $7M...


I said 3 yrs for 7 million total not per .. I'm sure he'd love that but fat chance haha

He's a solid player but for a 4th line giving 3 per is a lot , and we have glendening and nosek and bertuzzi coming soon and 4th liners could be brought in easier , maybe Miller returns

I like helm but also keeping him also gives us the risk he stays most of the time in the top 6 again and the kids suffer

Does anyone believe tyler bertuzzi can make the roster. I heard more then not great things about him, but not much chatter recently at all about his potential to be a redwing. IMO the redwings could really use a player like him

What did you hear about him that wasn't great? I think he's gonna be a redwing for sure , probably a 3rd-4th line agitator who's gonna be a grinder and score some timely goals and show up in the playoffs

May not rack the points up but I think he's gonna be a valuable player down the road ... Time will tell though

They don't need Dats to reach Cap, they have enough Cap space to absord his contract so that's the difference why we need to add otherwise it doesn't change anything for them.
I don't want Pronger's contract we already have Francine who's going to end up on LT.
Get rid of Dats contract, go after Backes, Lucic, Okposo, Stamkos (depending on his health), Yandle... keep money for possible trades (Trouba)...


Prongers hit is lower than pavel's ....a budget team is always looking to spend the least amount of money as possible

And we don't need to panic and start signing a bunch of these ufa's you listed and handcuff us for the future(it's a week ufa class)

If we wanted to free up cap space and sign a ufa or do a trade then we'll have to do trades and get rid of money(Howard,Ericsson)

The problem is i don't want to give up a 3rd rounder to trade datsyuk's contract , why should we have to give up that high a pick to help a team who don't want to reach the bottom cap?

We're doing them a favor as well by them saving 5-7 million actual cash , makes no sense to me


Trade his contract to Arizona for Chris pronger's contract or suck it up for one season and give kids like mantha and athanasiou 14-16 minutes a night

It's one season


#2673159 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 23 April 2016 - 09:33 AM

I don't understand all these rumblings I'm reading online about how the redwings will have to give up a good prospect or a 2nd-3rd rounder to get rid of datsyuks contract


If we're trading his contract to a team like Arizona who doesn't wanna spend to the bottom and get to save actual money , then how is it there the ones doing a favour for us? The way I see it were helping eachother out but we have to give up a good asset as well? In my mind a 7th should be more than enough and they get to save 5-7 million , don't get it


Is there any way we could trade datsyuks contract for pronger? We'd have to pay 575 000$ actual money as where as Arizona would pay no money and save more money as datsyuk's cap number is higher

If that scenario isn't doable I'd ether save the asset, and suck it up for one season and ACTUALLY play some of the kids !

Wanna free up cap space to sign some bodies? Get rid of Howard and Ericsson ... 10 million right there


#2672946 Fixing this mess....

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 22 April 2016 - 10:11 AM

I certainly agree with trading Tatar over Nyquist. And yes Nyquist is probably much preferred by other teams.
I doubt Tatar is tradeable as a single piece. Maybe for a pick, say 4th-5th.


4th or 5th for Tatar? No way man ... He had an off season but he can get 25-30 depending on the role he got on a team , our coach is just clueless

Put Tatar with the ducks ,Hawks, pens top 6 and he easily gets 25-30

First rounders are hard to fetch so he won't get that but I'd think he could easily get a 2nd rounder

I personally wouldn't even consider giving him up for that


#2672919 I Hate Jeff Blashill because ...

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 22 April 2016 - 08:17 AM

I don't hate Blashill, I feel sorry for him. Holland is to blame here.


Blashill ran the powerplay not holland

Blashill limited athanasiou's linemates and over played the vets not holland

Blashill responsible for sending mantha down not holland

Point is Blashill is the one who made a lot of questioning moves with this team in the post season and is to blame , there's too much talent on the roster to score 1 goal a game , heck even nyquist and Tatar's goal scoring went down severely this season


#2672915 Fixing this mess....

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 22 April 2016 - 08:11 AM

Trade Howard, Ericsson, Nyquist, Smith, Jurco and Pulkkinen for more draft picks.
Go after one or two of Stamkos, Okposo, Staal, Backes up front and go balls in deep for Yandle.
Best case scenario, you get 2-3 players that instantly make your team a solid playoff team. Worst case, you get none of them and you promote your deserving kids to full time and are really no worse th a new you were this season.
Oh, and don't re-sign the UFA'S. Helm only if it's $3M or less.


Go after staal? Have you watched him play? He's done

Got no interest in stamkos's 10-11 cap hit it would take , with our luck he'd probably get more blood clot issues as well , and as for yandle I think he's overrated and just fit in well with Arizona

I think our upgrade at d will be through a trade possibly including a nyquist in a deal and adding ouellet/sproul ... I'd keep jurco and trade pulkkinen with nyquist In a deal for defense

Gotta think nyquist and pulkkinen would fit in great in a ducks uniform and could each get 20-30 (although I'd want more than vatanen)

And we need to add some serious grit upfront as we have too many of the same type of players


#2672749 I Hate Jeff Blashill because ...

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 21 April 2016 - 09:20 PM

- He keeps shoving Ericsson down our throats (just found out he was on the ice on the winning goal, surprise surprise)


- he's too much a chicken s*** and rely's way too much on the veterans than trust in the kids (athanasiou got a giant 5 minutes again )


- he bulls***s the fans with his excuses for sending down mantha to keep anderson(who played 2 minutes) and said our powerplay would be ok without him ... We got zero goals I believe

- he was too stupid to realize mrazek gave us the best chance at winning this series , when a lot of us here said mrazek should of started game 1



I just hate this coach , which is surprising cause I thought I was gonna love him... He's turned out to be a big mistake , we don't need a safe coach , who's stubborn and refuses to play our best players just because and ... We all saw how horrible our powerplay was ... That 5 on 3 ... Atrocious , he needs to answer to that


Anyways keep the Blashill love going ... Why do you guys him ...


#2672214 Fixing this mess....

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 21 April 2016 - 06:43 PM

Jurco should start next season on our third line, and then depending on how he does, we can make a decision from there. I think selling a player with his potential when he's been a healthy scratch for most of the season would be a mistake. Richards shouldn't be back, Mantha should take his spot. Athanasiou is in the lineup now, so that's a non issue. Svechnikov and Bertuzzi are a couple years away. There's no reason one of the two can't be penciled in on the third line next season. I'd choose Jurco and trade Pulkkinen at the draft to move up a few spots...


How many times have we said cleary and Samuelson shouldn't be back? And they were? Lmao sadly we're dealing with holland so I could totally see Richards returning

Anyways we'll see what happens ... As for the draft unless we can get a good dman first round I'd like to see us go back to and get 3 2nd rounders if possible and select all dmen , last few years there's been some solid dmen coming out in the 2nd rounds

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 15 April 2016 - 10:18 PM

Blashill thinks that 6:52 of Andersson is more important than Mantha.


Blashill needs to stop thinking


#2669706 ECQF Game 2 Post-GDT: at Tampa Bay 5, Red Wings 2

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 15 April 2016 - 10:13 PM

Most of us said it mrazek is the goalie of the 2 that could steal a series and should of started game 1

Been saying it for years Howard will never be a winner , he doesn't the "it" factor

Mantha and his 6'5 frame should be screening bishop (who's just as big )on the powerplay

Was hopeful when Blashill came on as wings coach but right now he could take a hike for all I care and never come back , guy is so safe it's ridiculous , he has no balls and rely's on his vets too much

I'd also bench nyquist and maybe even Tatar cause there both just pissing me off , nowhere near as good as they should be ... Trade them both in the off season for some defense and grit , it's embaressing that abdelkader is the only grit on this team
