#2679341 The Holiday tradition: 2016 Draft thoughts.....

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 25 June 2016 - 08:46 AM

When I seen McLeod and then Bean go off the board, I was pissed... Then when I seen Chychrun drop to us, I was ecstatic... Then when I seen us trading the pick, I was pissed... Then when I seen what we traded the pick for, I was ecstatic... Then when I seen Fabbro go off the board I was slightly pissed... Then when I seen the players left on the board I was ecstatic... Then when I seen the player that we picked over all these other kids, I was beyond pissed... Now after 12 hours and sleeping on it, reading a lot more about him, I'm somewhat okay with the pick...
I'm not near as upset about us passing over Chychrun as I am with the selection we made in place of it... Hopefully we have a successful day two today and we can land a couple steals in the second round...

Ya I was like you yesterday , i thought for sure were drafting chychrun since the wings usually draft players that slide down ... Then I see the trade and think we got rid of datsyuks contract , kept our 1st and got a 2nd and gave up no prospects ? I was pumped


Then I'm like ok fabbro is out there ...... f***kk ... Ok this Stanley kid at 6'7 can be worth looking at ... f***kk lol

I was with friends and predicted we'd take rubstov cause the wings always say they pick the best player Available ... Anyways regardless we need help at d and it was the smart move and we added another pick and got rid of pavel , so it worked out

I also liked johansen but can't complain


#2679277 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 24 June 2016 - 10:53 PM

Real money vs no money. Even if he were on LTIR for Arizona they would have to pay him 1.1 million. With Pavs contract they don't pay any real money.


Which is why I never had any doubt that in the end we wouldn't have to give up a top pick or a top prospect like mantha ... Those teams are cheapskates and barely surviving and would do anything to save actual money

Great move by the wings tonight and got themselves and extra 2nd rounder tomorrow ... Now let's find a few gems tomorrow and hope we find an asset or 2 July 1st

It's exactly the type of deal we said would happen while everyone told us how dumb we were to think any team would "do us a favor." Way to go, Kenny.


Ha ya it's unbelievable that we didnt have to give away top prospects to bail out a team that didnt want to spend money

With Nill being familiar with Ericsson I see him going to Dallas rather than the oilers, Dallas also have spots to fill at defense with goligoski gone, and they aren't signing another 2-3 guys

Seguin also has 3 more years at a great 6 per deal and spezza' deal runs out in 3 yrs as well ... All the Same as Ericsson so it could work

I hope. But he's not gonna want to miss the playoffs so he's gonna move the contract despite the high cost. Therefore I think that a package would be best for us. Send Datsyuk,Tatar, Nyquist along with a prospect like Bertuzzi or a 2nd to Arizona in exchange for Hanzal. We free up a lot of cap and roster spots for our top prospects and even get the 2nd line Center we need.


Were not trading bertuzzi

Who says we can't hold out longer? You?

We got tons of kids this year at small contracts coming .... Marchenko ouellet sproul mantha Larkin athanasiou jurco pulkkinen , were not in a desperate state to shed datsyuks contract

For what to get stamkos? There's zero guarantee he would even come here so we're not giving up a top prospect ... That's ludicrous

We got quinceys 4 million off the books ... If we want to shed more salary Kenny can work the phones instead and get rid of Howard and Ericsson first , I'd much rather he got rid of those deals first than even think about shedding datsyuks contract

I agree that for a low market team that needs to get to the floor, this would be a dream come true. Get 7.5 mill towards your team salary without having to pay a cent of it and get a free prospect or draft pick. I'd be surprised if Arizona or Carolina doesn't work with us.

They'll be begging us to take that contract

None of us should want or expect us to part with a mantha or top prospect , we got a bunch of kids with smaller contracts so we'll be fine for this season

I'm more concerned with holland finding a taker for Howard and Ericsson


#2678154 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 18 June 2016 - 04:25 PM

I still think when it's all said and done the contract will be gone , but holland is gonna sit back and let the teams go to him

And trust me they will , if teams like Chicago wanna be stupid and give up a teravainen, it doesn't mean we have to , and I don't care what some think but this contract has value to a team like Carolina who are in financial ruins and can save 7 million dollars by taking his contract

They'll come to us by the end of June begging for that contract

Gonna say it again. If Holland fails to trade that contract he needs to be fired. Period.


If it's gonna cost a mantha or a top prospect then he shouldn't do it , free up cap space by dealing Ericsson and Howard


#2677715 Looking ahead at expansion draft

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 14 June 2016 - 09:23 PM

I thought it was announced already how the expansion draft would work? Didn't an article come out a few days ago?

Players with 2 yrs pro, NHL or ahl would be exempt which means Larkin and Russo that come to mind would be safe but players like mantha,bertuzzi wouldn't

Like you said though , we might make some deals this off season and add a dman or someone worth protecting ... I just hope we protect the kids we been developing such as mantha and bertuzzi


#2677697 NHL Chooses Las Vegas for 17-18 Expansion

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 14 June 2016 - 06:36 PM

Too be fair our dollar is in the toilet. They probably wanna see it stabilise before bringing in another Canadian team.


That and more importantly i believe a team will relocate to Quebec City ... Maybe Carolina Hurricanes

And don't forget Winnipeg got Atlanta during a hockey season so it's a possibility Quebec also joins Vegas in 2017-2018

Yeah, savard still gets paid some I believe (not the full amount because it was front loaded). Datsyuk's cap hit will be free for whoever has it.


That would help ... If we have to give up a 2nd or a 3rd we should suck it up for a year


#2677446 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 11 June 2016 - 10:46 AM

It still baffles me ... Yes were helping ourselves and our current cap situation but teams who don't wanna spend actual cash money and are having problems financially also benefit greatly and yet were expected to give up a top pick?

Pass .... Play the kids and trade other assets


#2677443 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 11 June 2016 - 10:19 AM

Wow Florida gave up a 2nd draft pick to get rid of Marc savard's contract that has one season left on it? That's just f***en retarded

At this point I hope to god Detroit keeps datsyuks contract on the books since it's just for one season and give the kids a chance to play for once

If we want to free up cap space or make moves do so by gettin rid of Ericsson and a Tatar/nyquist

I don't get some of these gm's in this league

I couldn't agree more. I'll be kind of pissed if we re-sign Miller again, even if it's one year at league minimum (which it wouldn't be). There are countless other players in the organization that could step in and provide more than what Miller does. He's the definition of a plug. Move on Kenny...

It's the same problem we keep having ... Being way too loyal to player

Would I like helm to resign? Sure but not at 3-4 per which he's gonna get , he's most likely gonna fall down to the 3rd-4th line eventually ... Signing helm close to 4 per let's say and Miller would take away 2 roster spots and we already have nosek and frk out of waivers I believe? Athanasiou Larkin mantha most likely all starting next year

We sign those 2 guys Pulkkinen/jurco/nosek/frk could possibly all be gone just to make room for yet again ... Vets


Never ends

He's gonna be 24 in December , 3 NHL seasons but none were ever a full season

I'd like to see him play 70+ and get some good linemates for a consistent time and not switched around all the time and play on the 4th line

Top 3 lines , linemates with skill and some occasional ppl time ... He's got all the tools , just needs a consistent, real shot
