#2683459 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by joesuffP on 18 July 2016 - 11:19 PM

I have to admit the defense is kind of a different story. I think management really values size on the backend, at least from their defensive defenseman. If someone came to training camp and was outstanding offensively I think they would be on the fast track to the lineup though. New defense couch could make things interesting? DD, Smith and Marchenko entering their primes it would change the team if they could have breakthrough seasons, then the outlook would be a lot different. Smith especially. It would be such a huge boost if he could become an impact player

Getting a penalty for somebody dropping their stick on a 'slash' is the most infuriating thing in hockey right now

Where exactly is all Jurco's potential? He really can't shoot the puck at all, not a great skater and has never shown any serious playmaking skills

If Jurco is going to turn it around and be an impact player he needs to use his strength. He ha size and can do everything moderately well. The only enormous untapped potential that our coaches have misused is not using him on the shootout to restock his YouTube highlights

Sure Jurco would benefit from playing with better line mates but that's the only thing it would benefit. He just hasn't been able to make plays for two years. Throw Nyquist or Tatar on that same fourth line and theirs a huge difference. Jurco has been bad anybody can see that

If only they could have made rules to not allow Roy to wear an 4XL jersey back in the day.


Honestly Ozzie probably was the worst for using the oversized jersey

Deal was made with Tampa before he had a chance to meet with Detroit simple as that. It's not because Holland sux if he was going to leave Tampa we would have been able to make a pitch

Replacing Ericsson with Fowler would go a very long way but Wings still need a good top pairing RH'd offensive defensemen badly

I really don't think Holland has an ego problem it's more he wants to be able to trade him. Kind of like the Weiss situation. I think he'll try and do everything he can this year and then next offseason he'll be bought out

I think the fact that Pulkinnen has amazing Corsi numbers really shows how flawed these stats can be. It really all comes down to usage. It makes sense in the context of a guy like Crosby and other top players because you're just throwing him out there against anybody and having success. It also tells me maybe Blashill is putting way too much emphasis on matchups and it simply hasn't worked


#2681344 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2016 - 12:28 PM

You know it's a bad signing when peoples trying to justify it by saying 'well he can be traded in a few years'


#2681129 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2016 - 11:14 AM

Weak at forward, weak at D, inexperienced coaching and inconsistent goaltending. What exactly will this team be good at. They have nothing going for them right now

This is a very bad hockey team I'm starting to feel sorry for Blashill

Helm and Abby's deals make me embarrassed as a Red Wings fan


#2681046 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2016 - 10:41 AM

He was forced in a top six role because of shortage of talent and couldn't produce but now he's paid like a top six so that should solve all our problems. Can't get good players? Just pay em like their good then everyone will stop bugging you cause you won't have cap space. Nobody wants to trade with you cause all your players and contracts suck? Means no work for Holland to do. This team has no direction. We won't be good until Holland leaves
