#2621292 Pulkkinen re-signs.... 1 year deal

Posted by joesuffP on 23 July 2015 - 10:35 AM

I feel like nyquististhefuture, LeftWinger and MrazekFanBoy are all the same person


#2620576 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by joesuffP on 15 July 2015 - 08:30 AM

So it must be done... We must murder Franzen... It's the only way


#2620547 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

I really hope there's room for Jurco on the third line this year and that he does well. I liked the way he played in the playoffs. With skilled linemates and more minutes his point totals have to go up. I can't see Franzen being shipped out. It's just not the Red Wing way. He pretty much willed us to a Stanley Cup let's not forget


#2620058 Gustav Nyquist signed 4-Year Deal $4.75 mill AAV

I think Q is most likely to be moved. We won't get much considering how valuable he has been to our team but we can shed his salary and replace him with Marchenko who would be just a marginal downgrade. Q would be playing on the bottom pair anyways so his value to us won't be the same as it was.

Hopefully this contract will help motivate Tatar as well.  If Gus can cash in like this, Tatar is looking at a hefty raise if he keeps being the better player. 

Yikes

Nyquist>Tatar
If babs never tried to use Gus as depth scoring for a big portion of the season he could have easily hit 30 plus nyquist's defensive game>>>Tatar's

Best news all summer. Great deal imo. Covers his prime years for cheap


#2619575 Over/Under for Larkin's time as a Red Wing in 15/16

Posted by joesuffP on 08 July 2015 - 09:52 AM

I think if he has an outstanding camp he may play a few games early in the season due to Datsyuk's injury

Lol yeah he should be playing for free
4.5M for 6 years


#2618783 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by joesuffP on 02 July 2015 - 06:12 PM

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


Would be ecstatic. Richards is just going to push Sheahan harder


#2618595 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2015 - 10:08 PM

I think DD will really take a huge step in his development playing with Green. He can really focus on being a rock solid defender when he doesn't have the responsibility of pushing the play but he can also make the plays when he sees them. He's a really dynamic shut down defender with a great skill set. The only thing I see lacking in his game is his in O zone play and creating off the rush, something that Green really excels at

Looks like Z won't spend any time at center anymore


#2618534 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Do you trust the caps coach?  Green was demoted to the third pairing.


Caps knew they weren't resigning Green when they added Niskanen and Orpik. There was no room for him. Management isn't going to treat him like he's a core player on their team when he's on his way out. Going to other teams HF boards is not a good way to scout out your new player


#2618531 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Meyers is a young Chara because he's 20 ft tall pretty much nothing else

We kept all our assets and gained at the very least, a 40 point dman who will likely score a lot more. Franson is a bad skater and will have trouble hitting 40 points and is also bad defensively. You have to be able to skate in today's NHL to play defense


#2618467 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2015 - 05:36 PM

Ward isn't going to take a 1 year deal so that's multiple years of a 3rd liner blocking our capable young guys from playing. I think Larkin gets a handful of games with us this year and next year is a regular meanwhile Sheahan takes another step forward


#2618414 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2015 - 04:45 PM

Or could just be an incentive for Sheahan and Richards to battle it out for 2nd line duties. Should make Sheahan a better player
