#2618766 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 02 July 2015 - 04:28 PM

I get your argument but saying he's 3rd in playoff points and played 100 games less than #2. Who is a defenseman is odd, defenseman aren't supposed to put up the kind of points lids did, that's why he was so special among other things.

But yes please retire #91 soon

I get your point, and no argument on lidstrom he's amazing but just stating a fact the guy played 100 less games than the 2nd place lidstrom and still ended 3rd all time and if he played just another 2-3 years before leaving he'd probably be the redwings all time playoff points leader

He just deserves to get his jersey raised , one of the best redwing players of all time

#2618724 Depth chart for RW/Griffins

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 02 July 2015 - 01:10 PM

Paetsch? How do you play hockey from prison? The only way marchenko isn't with the RW's is if we still have both KFQ and Kindl. using him in PO games last year should tell us all what the RW's think about him and his development.
BTW this was just a means of showing the depth and talent we have. Yes some guys could go to Juniors. IIRC Turgeon signed a pro contract and can't go back to junior anymore. Svech can as of today. But there are some funny rules between the NHL/CHL/AHL etc....

Lmao forgot about the gambling stuff ... I'll change it up ... As for marchenko sadly I do believe he I'll start with the griffins , trust me I'd much rather have him in detroit

Svechnikov will stay in the juniors , pretty sure I read that somewhere and as for turgeon can't say I'm 100% certain but I do believe he'll go back Down for his last year with portland

Hope frk gets a real shot this year playing with the fellow kids rather than Toledo or he's a goner, and I think Aubry was signed as well?

Mantha larkin Miele

Bertuzzi athanasiou zengerle

Tverdon nosek Frk

Aubry Campbell natasiuk


Guessing there will be more vets upfront but the only ones that come to mind are Miele and hogan, just hope we go more with the kids (can't recall ever seeing our ahl this stacked with youth)

Ouellet marchenko

Evans sproul

Hicketts Jensen

Nedomlel lashoff

#2618480 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 01 July 2015 - 05:50 PM

Looks like the lineup gonna look something like this ....

Zetterberg datsyuk abdelkader

Tatar richards nyquist

Pulkkinen sheahan Franzen

Helm glendening miller


Jurco Ferraro Andersson Callahan

Kronwall Ericsson

Dekeyser green

Quincey Smith/marchenko/ouellet/kindl

I'd personally rather replace Franzen with jurco

#2618212 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 01 July 2015 - 03:17 PM

I see zero chance Quincey gets dealt ... I'd personally rather trade kindl/smith right now and give ouellet marchenko some games

Kids are gonna have to get in some games , Quincey will probably be gone after this season , and when some kids are ready to step up and take a bigger role I'd expect Ericsson to be the next to be gone

#2618091 Free agents this off season

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 01 July 2015 - 02:22 PM

Blues need a goalie like Crawford. Makes the big saves when they need it but is okay when untested for the majority of the game. This is Howard's weakness. If he's not getting action chances are he'll give up some untimely, bad goals. But on the other hand he can be phenomenal when we're being badly outplayed

Oh I'd trade howard in a heartbeat and sign a veteran goalie or trade for one

Not looking at the lineup and prospects but I'd consider something like

Howard nyquist helm smith


Shattenkirk backes Rattie

#2617994 Phil Kessel Traded to Penguins

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 01 July 2015 - 12:54 PM

Pittsburgh didn't give up maata pouliot or sutter ... They got a steal for kessel

#2617682 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 30 June 2015 - 07:02 PM

Oh look after the ridiculous Mantha hype now it's Larkin .. This team isn't going anywhere so why not let him get used to the pro game in the ahl and call him up for a few games here and there
Best of luck to Weiss

I got high hopes for larkin but I agree , unless it's a bonfide star rookie I always prefer they start down for one year ... Let's see how larkin does there , if he dominates the game in all aspects and has like 55 pts in 50 games let's say then I'm all for giving him a call up and see what happens

But I think he needs to start down and dominate with the other kids

#2617480 Alexander semin being bought out

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 30 June 2015 - 11:45 AM

I know he's been a disaster last few years but if he's willing to sign a one year deal for like 2 million I sign him in a heartbeat and put him with pavel datsyuk and hope he gets 30-40 goals again

If there's one fellow russian that'll get him going again, on the ice and off it's pavel

#2616613 Dougie hamilton to calgary

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 26 June 2015 - 02:56 PM

Boston is on the verge of some tough times. I don't understand what they are doing at all. I get that they have to shed salary, but why Hamilton? I mean, good for us that Boston becomes a weaker team. But I guess firing their previous GM did nothing to change trading away their youth.

It's just ridiculous , Couldnt they of just made a qualifying offer and try to resign him longterm during the season ?

Seidenberg,smith,Marchand,lucic are all guys they could of gotten rid of instead

There f***ed in a few years

#2616548 Free agents this off season

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 26 June 2015 - 08:59 AM

That's a ridiculous contract soderberg got for a 40pt guy ... Can't understand colorado

I want no part of any ufa's at this point

#2615969 Looking ahead to expansion draft ... If Vegas comes to the nhl etc

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 24 June 2015 - 05:43 PM

I'd imagine we would definitely go with protecting only Mrazek in goal if they go about the expansion draft in a similar manner. Is it just unprotected main roster players that are up for draft? It would be garbage if they could poach players from junior and GR as well. I'd rather they just get thrown in with the basement dwelling teams for draft lottery day than to get a s*** at poaching other franchise's prospects.

Ya I'm pretty sure ahl players are out of the question

#2615473 Players who might be available due to teams cap issues

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 20 June 2015 - 01:32 PM

Yandle is a ufa in one year and if he was that great in ny they wouldn't be willing to get rid of him right away

No interest giving up mantha,1st + for one season

#2615371 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 19 June 2015 - 08:13 PM

Khan says Wings are no longer interested in Phaneuf.  I'm betting Babcock nixed any deal, like most of us believed he would.

Babcock or not I'm glad we're stepping away from Phaneuf

#2614952 2015 Draft

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 17 June 2015 - 02:35 PM

Athanasiou got a broken jaw, couldn't eat solid food for weeks, lost almost 20 lbs., AND missed more games than Mantha.  Yet he still managed to work hard every game once he returned.  Being injured might excuse the results, but not the lack of effort.
I don't see why people feel the need to constantly make excuses for the Mantha.  He was used to streamrolling weaker competition in Juniors, and he learned bad habits, and hasn't unlearned them yet.  It doesn't doom him to a career of mediocrity, but he doesn't get a free pass from criticism because he was drafted high and people like the fact that he's big. 
To date, Mantha has been soft, lazy, and moderately disappointing.

I'm pretty sure you need your legs to play hockey ? As bad as the jaw injury was you need your legs more to play hockey than your jaw ...I'm no doctor but I'm sure a leg injury could effect his your play on the ice , with a broken jaw after sometime off you put your protection and your good to go

And again don't forget mantha didn't have training camp and exhibition games so when he came back he was already not in playing shape

And he finished with a goal behind athanasiou ... Not like athanasiou blew him out of the water (nothing against athanasiou, like the kid )

Before it was mantha was just good cause he played against 17-18 yr olds and now it's he steamrolled through weaker competition in the juniors ... Well he was named one of the best players at the world junior championships against the best of the juniors , what's the excuse now?

Mantha played in the league he was in ... It was out of his control , ahl is a tougher league and he learned from it and will get better .... Why you already writing him off after a injury ridden first season?

As far as I know without checking drouin didn't light it up and he was 3rd overall and couldnt even get in the lineup during the playoffs .... What a bust

To date mantha's played 60 games ... Far to soon to be judging him ... Don't forget Tatar was in Grand Rapids for 4 years
