#2679700 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

$12M for Stamkos (young superstar) is a lot of money but KH might not have a choice than to match Buffalo's offer. Stamkos is still young and once again, he's a superstar. Even with Dats we were looking for top six forward and now its a MUST

 

I agree, disgruntled as it's a LOT of money. But we need a 1C. Pay up if that's what it takes.

So, CBS Sports did a mock expansion draft of sorts and picked Howard for the new Vegas team. 

 

Ken better move him this summer before we get nothing.

He isn't worth anything. His contract basically gives him little value. Getting rid of the contract itself would be a huge deal for this team. I'd be ecstatic to see us getting a 5th rounder for him in all honesty.

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



Thank you! I felt like the only one who saw this on bright, obvious flashing letters.

@tkulfan: Holland said he'll focus on replacing Datsyuk in free agency....what does he want to do with this newly created cap space? "Spend it"

We shall see...

@Buccigross:Steve Yzerman basically told @KathrynTappen: "we made our best offer to Stamkos. Take it or leave it."

Ken Holland said the focus with his new found cap space will be replacing Pavel Datsyuk. Looking for an impact forward.

 

BOOM! Bring Stamkos here baby! Trade for Shattenkirk, too!

 

You know he's going all in for him.

Yup...One could make a case that you could swap TB, and Buffalo...Anywho - I'm not gonna get my hopes up.

Are your hopes ever up? =)

It's not all about Stamkos though.

 

There's Okposo, Eriksson, Ladd, Backes, Lucic, Radulov etc. 

Seriously, if we lose on Stamkos, we can add two solid forwards and possibly trade for a top tier d-man.  Either way, we're in a good position heading in to July 1.

Holland is sounding cocky. He better be sure he's getting Stamkos.

Just when my opinion of Kenny was at its lowest, he goes and does something like this. AND TOTALLY REDEEMS HIMSELF!

 

(maybe not TOTALLY)

That's what I'm afraid of. Many of us are expecting Holland to at least do ONE thing this off-season to shake things up, but the more I think about it, the less likely it is I think he'll get anything done. We'll get stuck with Datsyuk's contract, stuck with Howard, fail to acquire a top D-man or impact forward, the sky will fall, etc. Hopefully I'm wrong....

 

Sad to say it, but until the playoff streak ends, nothing will change. Until that streak is over, we will see nothing but safe moves.

 

Even if we are well out of the playoffs come trade deadline, I still can't see Holland having it in him to move players for picks and prospects.
