#2497480 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by wings87 on 20 March 2014 - 03:29 PM

When you consider only 1 rookie got injured and that was due to a crosscheck to the ribs that would have happened to anyone I think the lesson to be learned is that our young talent is reliable, robust, and deserves roster spots in the future. Re-signing Bert, Cleary, Sammy who have all been injured often is so ridiculous when they hardly play anymore and when they do they are nursing some injury. Quincey, while I don't want him re-signed, has at least been healthy somehow. 


You had to go there? Haven't we learned anything this season on LGW...? You can't say players are healthy, it never ends well. face-slap.gif

#2497447 Kassian on the way out of Van?

Posted by number9 on 20 March 2014 - 12:39 PM




This years Brunner. His favorite player is Datsyuk.


KHL player, 23, 5'11" 200lbs, a center, & from the same town as Pavs.  And here's where a comment about counting chickens comes into play.  



This is the first time I've ever seen that name mentioned.  Is he rumored to the Wings somehow?

He's 22 undrafted. Basically exploded this year in the KHL. Every NHL team will be fielding him offers, but he's rumored to the Red Wings because Datsyuk is his idol.

*Obligatory Kassian mention*

#2497226 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by kipwinger on 19 March 2014 - 08:59 AM

I'll say this, I did not realize how fast Nyquist was until last night.  I knew he was quick, but not fast like that.  It was appropriate that we played the Leafs last night because Nyquist looked A LOT like Phil Kessel in terms of his explosive first strides and quick wrister.  Kid is fast.

Thought it might be a good time to bring this up again. Kids been awesome this year and has been most of our offense lately. Leading the team in goals and 4th in points with 35 in 43 games in his first "full" season. He's got confidence and is turning into a leader on this team. Way to go, Goose!

#2496284 Red Wings sign college FA Colin Campbell

Posted by Richdg on 17 March 2014 - 07:37 PM

Would love to see us pick up Trevor van Riemsdyk.

Also lets add Barcley Goodrow to play LW. He is 6-2/215 has 30 goals for North bay and was at our prospect camp last summer.

Wings are deep at center, especially when/if we get healthy. But if this kid is willing to come to camp and try out go for it. It would be great to have him as an emergency call up at some point (like when helm gets hurt again) but I just don't see the Wings having space for him right now, maybe in a year or two unfortunately.  

His khl contract isn't up until after next season anyway.
Who knows.

#2495537 Rangers sign Ryan Haggerty (with an interesting clause)

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 16 March 2014 - 09:03 AM

Ten bucks says this kid demands a trade before the end of next season.

#2495445 Ryan Ellis

Once upon a time Nashville also had Cody Franson and Ryan Suter.


I want their defensive scout...

#2494086 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

If you'd like to guarantee that your post gets deleted, please be sure to include statements about people crying and complaining.  


If you'd like to actually discuss the trade, feel free and keep it within forum rules.  


On the other hand if you feel the topic has been beat to death, simply don't post in the thread. 

#2493188 Who will have a better career as a Red Wing: Weiss or Legwand?

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 08 March 2014 - 02:21 PM

Datsyuk, Legwand, Weiss and Helm when all are fit and fully tuned into the systems, thats one hellavu Center line up not many teams will match.


I hope they both have good stints as Wings, and yes i do believe Legwand will re-sign on a 2 year deal. I for one am really excited to see next season's Wings roster come together, add another scoring winger ( or just go with Mantha? ) and a top D ( trade for one ) we could be back up where we belong.

#2493052 Patrick Eaves First Game as a Predator

Posted by number9 on 08 March 2014 - 12:29 AM

Eaves really is the man. Never disliked him. For his price tag he did his job very well.

#2493923 UFA/RFA Re-Signing, What Does Everyone Get?

Posted by larionov_8 on 09 March 2014 - 04:09 PM

Not to get off topic, as this has an influence on who makes what, but I think this year's experience demonstrates that the wisest course of action would have Jurco and Glendening start the year in GR. There will be injuries, and when there are, I'd rather see these guys, who have shown they are capable, fill a role, over a player who may not be ready. Meanwhile they can play big minutes and continue to learn how to win with GR.


Given that we have enough youth already (Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan and Andersson, plus potentially Ferraro and Callahan - Helm and Abby aren't "old" and there are 3 young guys on the D too), there is value in filling out the roster with veterans who can also fill some roles (e.g. Legwand and Alfie). That gives us the kind of depth needed to compete in this league when those injuries hit. I think this stretch of games right now is showing that it is a lot to ask of these young guys to drive the bus themselves. Hopefully they will be ready to take on bigger roles as they develop but they are still young and raw in some ways. 

On a less argumentative note, can anyone explain why Almquist is / is not waiver-exempt in 2014-15?

Hard to score when you're playing with Glendening and Abdelkader
