#2680821 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

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

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

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

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

Holland is high as a kite. Look at him.


He is a BC boy

This is a great deal imo

Comparing defensemen to a goal scoring forward? Strange logic. Pretty much proven fact that Stamkos is a top 3 goal scorer in the NHL. If you can't admit that then everything your saying is flawed

A lot of noise about trading Howard being the best option this offseason


#2678111 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

Posted by joesuffP on 18 June 2016 - 12:58 PM

@riger1984: Hearing contract will be traded to Carolina and will have to give up either Jurco or Pulkkinen in the deal.

Anybody know if this guy is a legit source?

This just seems like the most plausible outcome not so sure about it being an inside source

Gotta say, Datsyuk not finishing out his contract leaves a sour taste in my mouth. He has been my favourite player for years but I don't think he's in the same realm as Yzerman and Lidstrom


#2678047 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by joesuffP on 17 June 2016 - 11:43 PM

If we lose Jurco, Pulkinnen and maybe a third round pick but in doing so we dump Ericsson/Howard & Datsyuk then I'm all for it. Consider it a house cleaning


#2677978 Hawks trade Teravainen and Bickell to Carolina

Posted by joesuffP on 17 June 2016 - 03:46 PM

Management will choose Nyquist over Tatar. Salary shouldn't come into question because Tatar will be signing an identical deal to Nyquists next year anyways

Tatar scored slightly more with lesser line mates for like one half season... Other than that he was playing with Dats who was better than Hank. Not to mention Nyquist has scored more over his career than Tatar so I don't know where these facts are coming from
Isn't Tatar not scoring on the PP kind of a bad thing and not a knock on Nyquist who is a good PP player. Strange logic
