#2676095 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by krsmith17 on 17 May 2016 - 11:11 AM

I wouldn't rather have Radulov or Okposo over Stamkos, however I'm not sure how I would feel about paying him $10.5M until 2024. What are we going to pay Larkin, Mantha and company in a few years if he's making that kind of money? If we're spending that kind of cap on a player, I'd prefer it be spent on a defenseman. In saying that, if we landed Stamkos, I wouldn't be too upset...

I feel like I've seen it all now that there are  posts on how some would rather have Radulov than Stamkos. 

Lol. True.

Stamkos when at his best, has been regardes as the 2nd or 3rd best player. I guess you really shouldn't pass on that.

But I do think our chance of signing Radulov+Okposo is higher than getting Stamkos.

I'd rather we sign Okposo and Radulov than Stamkos and either of the other two. Gives us more money to accommodate a defenseman if we can trade for one. Stamkos is going to be a VERY expensive 70 point player.

Blues have to be the biggest failure of a franchise overall, always seem to be up there but never get it done and probably never will.

#2666991 Playoff Lines + Mantha Back to GR

Posted by _SP_ on 11 April 2016 - 12:45 AM

Larkin - Datsyuk - Mantha
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Abdelkader
Tatar - Athanasiou - Jurco
Helm - Sheahan - Richards / Glendening

DeKeyser - Green
Smith - Quincey
Kronwall - Marchenko / Ericsson

Howard / Mrazek

I don't think pairing Datsyuk with a guy in the playoffs that he's hardly played with before is a good idea. 

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Abdelkader
Nyquist - Sheahan - Tatar
Larkin - Athanasiou - Mantha
Helm - Glendening - Richards
Jurco - Pulkkinen 

DeKeyser - Quincey
Kronwall - Smith
Green - Ericsson 


#2666728 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

In that article, it says that the Red Wings told him they will not trade his contract to relieve the cap. Holland, in his obsessive loyalty will eat the $7.5M hit for the year and handicap his team for no reason but to stay loyal. f*** Holland, he needs to be fired!

#2666660 Fixing this mess....

i feel howards being over praised, during that "bad stretch" of mrazek's our whole team was playing like trash. Wings management just don't like seeing money sitting on the bench, they play the money. Thus is why they so heavily try to rely on dats and Z. Not sayin their incapable just im not sure they can carry this team anymore.


The whole team has played like trash more or less all season.  Mrazek has been a dumpster fire since his birthday, and for the most part it has had little to do with the play in front of him.  Since he started playing bad, Howard has been much sharper.  This is why he's been getting the starts.  Not because he gets paid more, but because he has been giving the team the best chance to win.  If it was because of his bigger paycheck, Howard would have been the starter all season long, and that clearly wasn't the case from October to February.

So 29 straight appearances is the record in North American sports?

i see him leading in postseason

Will be awesome to see the how the youngster respond to playoff hockey... Can't be any worse than Gus and Tatar against Boston


AA to me seems to be the type of big moment player. You see he has extra energy when the wings need a boost. You know he'll be flying for his 3 shifts a game

Not a great way to get in, and obviously some changes need to be made.


It feels amazing to be in and see the streak continue, regardless of all the bitching being done by the #tankit haters!
