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

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2015 - 07:36 PM

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

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


#2617623 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by joesuffP on 30 June 2015 - 05:20 PM

From this day forward no red wing shall wear #90... That's what you get for trying to get around using #19 or #9
Give me a break... Nyquist has scored more goals in the last two years than Tatar plus is a better all around player. I would be happy if we locked him up long term after he played for peanuts the last two years

The last thing we need is bottom six forwards


#2615952 OT Changes

Posted by joesuffP on 24 June 2015 - 03:40 PM

I would have it 4 on 4 for 5 minutes and 3 on 3 for 2 minutes then call it a draw


#2615807 OT Changes

Posted by joesuffP on 23 June 2015 - 08:14 PM

Cool. They should just ditch the shootouts altogether. What happens if somebody gets a penalty in OT


#2615461 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Posted by joesuffP on 20 June 2015 - 11:08 AM

Washington is a much better team now for signing those guys last July. Franson is in the prime of his career and fills all our needs. I would overpay. I do believe Phaneuf is the better overall defensemen though but, trading assets, terrible contract, LH'd and older.
