#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

Nobody is breaking 50 points this year

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

There will be nothing exciting about this team


#2681010 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Holland just uses all our cap on guys like Helm and Abby so he won't be bothered to make deals and blame the cap. Compared to previous years and other GM's that are actually putting thought and time into their rebuild he's doing about half the amount of work

Imagine what it feels like to bring in outside talent that has an actual impact outside of the organization.

This is just terrible and has officially made me not want Holland being a part of this team anymore this was the last straw. He hasn't accomplished a thing since Lidstrom retired but is still managin to lock up our future. He's building the core of this team off being a playoff bubble team. It almost seems like he's just lazy

In a world where Okoposo wants 8M a year yeah it will be hard for holland to make everyone happy

Ya I think the roster is what really made datsyuk's decision to leave. If we had a great team I guarantee he will finish out his contract


#2680170 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Posted by joesuffP on 29 June 2016 - 03:21 PM

Subban > Weber

In today's NHL guys like Burns, Buff and PK are the most important players in the league

Weber's great but I don't think he's even a top 10 defenseman in the league anymore. The games changed away from his style


#2679674 Drew Miller re-signs... 1 year deal $1.025 million

Posted by joesuffP on 27 June 2016 - 02:04 PM

Imagine thinking Callahan or some AHL lifer would be a better penalty killer than Miller


#2679662 Drew Miller re-signs... 1 year deal $1.025 million

Posted by joesuffP on 27 June 2016 - 12:54 PM

If we could sign Helm for cheap we would have a pretty deadly 4th line

Miller-Glendening-Helm

High end speed on all four lines


#2679475 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

I'd happily miss out on Stamkos if we sign Boedker, Radulov and Okposo. Then all we need is to trade for a Centerman for line 1 or 2 and we're contenders.


Sign three guys and pay them more than what Stamkos could score on his own. I seriously don't understand not wanting a bonafide superstar on this team
Imagine thinking having Okoposo as the centerpiece to your offense will take you anywhere in the playoffs. Great complimentary scorer but the wings are trying to build a new core
Having a team full of 15-20 goal scorers is how you never score in the playoffs


#2679457 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

Posted by joesuffP on 25 June 2016 - 12:34 PM

K I'm all aboard the holland hype train but let's not forget that if we drafted chychurin would have been a great pick at our placement... Dumping salary for what? That was the easy part. Going forward is the defining moment for the offseason
Omg I wish hypothetical trades dreamed up by members weren't allowed to be posted. Why would coyotes just trade hanzal without any reasoning behind it and why would he trade for our midgets. News flash! Nobody is looking to get smaller in today's NHL... Tatar scores around 30 but teams rather take a 15-20 goal scorer over 6 feet all day long

There's a lot of things we can do this year with all the cap space. It's not a complete failure if we don't land Stamkos
