#2619097 Nyquist Files For Arbitration

Posted by joesuffP on Yesterday, 04:27 PM

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


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

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)

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

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

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

This is what it looks like when you stockpile assets for years. We could throw together a hell of a package for some elite talent now


#2618150 Free agents this off season

Exciting! Please stay healthy Mike!

For the record, Nyquist is probably my favourite player aside from Z and Dats but I wouldn't lose any sleep over trading him for a defensemen like Shattenkirk

Detroit needs to go ahead and outbid for Green and Franson. Deal with the logjam come October. Waive Q and K, trade Smith, whatever. I amf****** sick of always watching these teams getting better, trying things, making ballsy moves and Holland standing pat. I get it, kids, I know, but damn it, you can have the kids next season when you once again have some open spots. You are not going to be able to keep all 4 anyhow. Not with E and Kronner signed forever. You are keeping Danny D for sure. Sign Green and Franson to that group and then you are instantly better. Hell, trade Jensen and Sproul also when the time comes. I love the lore of the streak, but Dats and Z aren't getting any younger, they don't have time to wait for these kids to become regulars. By time any if these 4 kids become regular players, Dats will be retired and Z will have half a back left. Just do it.

You would make a terrible GM

Franzen is going to produce a hell of a lot more than Jurco in the top 6


#2617790 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by joesuffP on 30 June 2015 - 11:22 PM

I'd rather go after Franson personally


#2617684 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by joesuffP on 30 June 2015 - 07:04 PM

I can't see why Larkin wouldn't be able to put up Numbers like Sheahan did in his first year as a 3rd line center


#2617649 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by joesuffP on 30 June 2015 - 06:02 PM

Pretty sure Nyquist will get a long term deal
Would be smart to lock him up imo
