#2527650 Jason Spezza traded to Stars for 3 prospects, 2nd-rd pick

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 01 July 2014 - 11:02 AM

So in a league where it's seemingly impossible to acquire top-end centers, Jim Nill picks up Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza within 12 months

#2525824 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by DeGraa55 on 26 June 2014 - 11:07 AM

Not the free agent I want BUT if signed I would applaud holland for finally signing a bigger name free agent.

Man, I don't care if the guy's 42, 45, 58 1/2 - it's one less spot for Dan Cleary.

He's going to GR to be a mentor, only way he returns to the wings is if he beats out a kid for a spot. Don't see how that's so hard to grasp.

GR doesn't really need a mentor who can't play hockey anymore. There is no defense of this. If they wanted him to have an influence on kids, make him a player development coach. If they only want him in GR, let GR sign him.

This doesn't work as insurance, either, because we have so many kids. And Cleary isn't better than a single one of them. He can't even skate without falling down.

How does that saying go?  "If you love someone, set it free.  If it returns to you, lock the doors & don't take any of his agent's calls."

#2523831 Wings sign Tomas Nosek to 2 year entry level deal

Watch us sign Sekac and Malykhin too

#2523608 Trading up?

Franzen would enjoy playing in Florida.  Hopefully, their scouts haven't seen a Wings game since 2010.

#2523168 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 07 June 2014 - 05:40 PM

I don't understand why so many people are eager to get rid of Lashoff. 


He's 23 years old with one full NHL season under his belt.  He won't set the world on fire, but he's big, pretty physical, and has a cap hit of $725,000 for the next two seasons.  


Lashoff will likely improve and will look better when the whole blueline gets more stability.  He's worth keeping around for a couple seasons to see if he at least settles into a big physical bottom pairing guy. 


Kindl however, needs to go.  The bummer is he's signed for three more years at $2.4 millions.

I agree with this.  We've got the cap and roster flexibility to be aggressive this year and I think we should be.  My priorities are as follow (I'm trying to be realistic in terms of value and only acquiring guys who are believed to be available):


1.  Trade Smith, Helm, and our 1st for Ryan Kesler.

2.  Trade Franzen and Andersson for RJ Umberger and a 2nd. 

3.  Sign Niskanen (5 years, 5.5 million)

4.  Sign Fedor Malykhin to a two way contract. 

5.  Kindl can go too, for a late pick, and replaced with a vet d-man if you felt like finding one (I didn't bother on this).

#2521817 Mantha named CHL player of the year

Posted by darkmanx on 26 May 2014 - 08:47 PM


I think a lot of fans see comparisons to a Hall of Fame caliber player, or they read what a prospect could develop into, they don't take into account that most players don't reach their full potential.  Some are complete busts and never see the NHL.  Others have decent careers, but never reach what their top end potential was projected to be-guys like Bonk, Anders Ericsson, Smid, and Upshall.  It's more likely that Mantha puts up Fraznen type numbers than he turn into some perennial All-Star power forward.
