#2682723 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by joesuffP on 09 July 2016 - 03:47 PM

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

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

Nobody is breaking 50 points this year

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


#2681050 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2016 - 10:42 AM

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

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2016 - 10:17 AM

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
