#2483916 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by Dabura on 14 February 2014 - 03:35 PM

If he hadn't tweaked it in the Olympic game, he would have tweaked it in the next Wings game.

Again I ask: Why are we acting like there's no two-week vacation option? Is it inconceivabe that taking a two-week vacation might've done Z's back some real good, or at the very least been infinitely kinder and easier on it than...playing in the Olympics? Why is it "Destroy back in Olympics or destroy back in the same way when the NHL resumes?" There are steps players can take to combat and minimize injury woes and risks. We're acting like the very concept of "maintenance days" is stupid because "Well, he's gonna get hurt anyway. Why bother resting up?"


I think had he not been named captain of the Swedish team, there's a reasonable chance he might not have gone. Same with Datsyuk. So, what I'm saying is, being captain sucks.

Its appropriate to mention that a lot of his pain is probably due to the fact that per IIHF rules he cant use cortison shots, which i'm assuming he was using to stem the pain and function these past couple weeks. 


Yep, this is definitely worth considering. (Not sarcasm.)

#2483616 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

It's all a little pointless. With our cap situation and all our overpaid valueless vets, we're not going to trade for anyone. It would involve moving someone of current or future potential to clear cap space and Ken won't do that. Even trading someone like Smith wouldn't work. We could get someone who's better NOW, but he'll likely have a higher salary than Smith. So yeah no trades this season

Edler Edler Edler. He does a little bit of everything but moves the puck very well. He's struggling with Torts, so we could add him for cheap if they'll move him. He needs to be among our better swedes so he can reinvent himself in Detroit.


What do you mean by add him for cheap?


EDIT: nvm, you probably meant in the offseason after the Wings unload their free agents.

#2481503 Miller vs. Eaves

Posted by number9 on 05 February 2014 - 03:58 PM

Well Miller still has a contract next year, so looks like we get him regardless. And Eaves is waiverable

If we make a move draft picks are going to be huge.  We can't offer much in terms of players, but we need to offload someone for cap reasons if we want to acquire anyone.  Since Cleary won't net us anyone, we'll have to package a lesser guy with a draft pick or two. With how stacked we are down the pipeline, I'm perfectly find with tossing draft picks around (to a point) like candy if it gets us someone who can help.

I think its almost safe to say Holland won't be making any moves this year...(again)



He said he was going to wait and see how the few games before the olympics go before he decides to make any moves, and with a few points in a few games he'll probably sit tight again.


If anything I could see a very minor move, hopefully getting a 5th or 6th defenceman in return without losing anyone valuable. (quincey not included) Plus with the added cap issues, there isn't much Holland could really pull the trigger on if he wanted to

Next season is going to be interesting because there will definately be moves, Holland has no choice. So many players ready for the big club and no longer waiver exempt so that is going to be interesting.

I was a fan of something Winging it in Motown tweeted: Jerk Sauce

Or Tinky Winky's Jerk Sauce line?  Gotta get all 3 in.

Sure, after Stevie is done here in a few decades :lol:  Maybe coach??


How boss would it be with Stevie as GM and Z as assistant GM?

redwingmachine line.

Why does every line need a name?


They don't, but it sure beats discussing whether Kronwall is a top 30 dman...

I still think Ott is worth a shot. With no one really knowing what's up with Datsyuk, and the jury being out on Weiss, and Helm's health a constant concern, and Andersson being very vanilla, and Sheahan being a call-up kid, and Glendening being a call-up kid, and Z's back a major issue, and Franzen being a vegetable, it might be worth investing in some more center depth. Which reminds me: as long as Randy Carlyle is the coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Nazem Kadri is on the block.

(Salo and Timonen are both Finnish. So maybe they'd like the idea of playing on the same team, maybe even the same pairing. And we could bring up Pulkkinen and make all our Swedes feel uncomfortable.)

#2480586 All movie Character team

I agree with the original article,
I'd scratch Bombay for the speedy Premature Ejaculator.

"Stevie Weeks...The last addition to the Mystery, Alaska squad, Weeks was a teenager who skated the towns frozen river every morning. On a team full of speedsters, Weeks was clearly the fastest on the roster.

Weeks play was impressive enough for the Rangers to sign him to a minor-league contract."

Haha love the description of Weeks. But, I donno man. Weeks has Crosby face and can't take a hit. I'll take the Minnesota Miracle Man.

God I wish people would stop just posting capgeek rosters, without adding a comment. Girardi for 3,25 *lol*


The whole Vanek thing will be over within 2 months, the guy is a pure rental he wants to test UFA. So every team giving up an A level prospect + a 1 does so for a short window of his services. Smart GMs aren't crazy enough to do that, because if they want him make an offer on July 1.


From a Wings stance Holland would deserve to be fired if he packaged one of Sheahan, Tatar, Nyquist, Dekeyser or Mantha for him.


Snow will try hard to get back a serious package, because they've given up a lot to get Vanek. An argument can be made for both sides when it comes down to the driverseat, Vanek will make an already contending team better but they all know that Snow has to deal him now, or the Isles are going to lose him for nothing.


That was in a response to a post saying the Wings could trade Quincey and a pick for Girardi and be under the cap. 


I don't think the Wings should trade for any of the rentals unless they can talk go the player first and make sure they're looking for a team to sign with, not wanting to test the market.  The value of the rentals at the deadline is usually more than they're worth.

#2479993 Almqvist or Backman

Posted by DickieDunn on 02 February 2014 - 01:36 PM

Almquist is a RFA this summer.  I could see him heading home.  His offense isn't nearly good enough to make up for his defensive short comings.  People want Kindl, Quincey, and Smith gone for their mistakes, Almquist is a good step worse than any of them.
