#2426927 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Posted by MasterPavel on 05 July 2013 - 01:11 PM

Right but Abby was on pace for 6 assists, well behind Alfie who was on pace for 32!
Alfie is not one dimensional, he will play very good defense, will go to the net, will set up other players as well.
And that was with Abby playing minutes with Datsyuk, remember Corey Perry giving Abby crap about his totals while playing with Dats?
You think Abby should be playing 1st line minutes over Alfie? Really?
Doesn't really matter as they will probably be on the same line as Alfie is RW and Abby is LW.

I believe it was Shane Doan giving Abby crap. Could be wrong tho...

#2426492 Red Wings select RW Anthony Mantha 20th Overall

Yeah, I'll go with the red wing scouts on there drafting abilities vs. wannabe scouts at any network. They should have earned the ability to make unpopular picks without scrutiny. Funny how he backslides "worst draft in 10 years, blah blah blah. But we will see how they develop." In 5 years he will be singing the praises of our prospects. We have all watched this movie before....

#2424386 Red Wings select RW Anthony Mantha 20th Overall

The scouts might say he has a questionable work ethic, but I guarantee Babcock can get the most effort out of this kid.  Even in his interviews he doesn't seem like the same type of personality as Franzen so I won't judge the guy until he plays some games in the AHL and NHL.

Exactly, a lot of top young prospects that are use to dominating get bored. It's different for a 17-18 year old who probably hasn't lived with his parents for at least a year, life revolves around a sport, and doesn't have social stability. Then these writers wonder why some kids lose focus. That's just my professional opinion...

With the 18th pick of the 2013 NHL entry draft. The Detroit Red Wings select Center Max Domi, London Ontario.

#2419799 Wings Sign Drew Miller to 3 year extension @ 1.35m/yr

Love the signing!

Johnz- to be fair to rich scouting isn't an exact science, and I just hope the first 17 teams share his opinion :)...

#2419383 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by MasterPavel on 12 June 2013 - 12:07 PM

2.5 sounds about right to me, 3 tops. You can tell Brunner loves playing here and this is a situation where we will get a little bit of a discount.

#2419065 Ilya Kovalchuk, would you....

Posted by MasterPavel on 10 June 2013 - 04:07 PM

No I would not trade for that contract. I would however offer him a big deal if he got bought out. I don't think either will happen tho.

#2418193 INSANE grand rapids roster next season full of prospects

Posted by MasterPavel on 06 June 2013 - 03:11 PM

Let the over-ripening begin!!!

They need to be ripe before they can over-ripen. Ferraro may be ready for an Emdog style of role. Almquist looks ready, but there is just no room for him. Outside of those two the rest need developing.

#2417344 Draft position?

Posted by MasterPavel on 03 June 2013 - 12:38 PM

Johnz96- I like your plan to trade down and take McCarron, if Mantha isn't available. Or why not package our 2nd and 3rds for a change and get them both?

#2416803 Holland on The Huge Show.

Posted by MasterPavel on 01 June 2013 - 12:40 PM

I like Miller, but we need to move on. Tatar, Pulks, Frk - these guys dont bring a big drop off from Miller. We have got to get them seasoned.

It's a little early to start talking about Pulks, and Frk. Pulks just got to America and Frk hasn't even played with anyone over 18 yet. Sheahan, Ferraro, and Jarnkrok will be up before those two. Look for Miller to be resigned due to him being a utility player...

#2416044 Franzen Buyout?

Posted by MasterPavel on 30 May 2013 - 09:09 AM

Buy out our top goal scorer who has a cap hit under 4 million?   It worries me that 26 people have voted "yes".  What are you thinking?  The Wings aren't going to find a 25-30 goal scorer for any less than $3.9 on the market. 
Buy out Sammy 

He isn't our top goal scorer anymore, and due to his decline in production he is going to be a 20 goal scorer. But your point remains it still doesn't make sense to cut him, however he should be a trade candidate. I don't want him getting board and influencing our young players.

#2412568 WCSF Game 6 GDT- Blackhawks 4 @ Red Wings 3, - (Series tied 3-3)

Posted by MasterPavel on 27 May 2013 - 01:44 PM

Kronwall is due there is no doubt about it. I'm going with a Kronwall hat trick. 1 goal, 1 assist, and 1 "you got Kronwalled"... 4-1 wings (Kronner, Dats, and Mule x 2)

I really think the Wings are going to pull this one out here at home. The crowd will be going nuts hopefully and I'm sure the team will feed off it and manage to pull out a W. I would love for a blowout which we haven't seen since playing Vancouver earlier in the season but I doubt that will happen. I'm sure it will be another nail biter down to the end. 
3-1 Wings. Kronwall, Pav, Hank (EN)

#2402505 Valtteri Filppula's Value?

Posted by MasterPavel on 12 May 2013 - 03:25 PM

6 years, 25.5 million. Take it or leave it.

About 1 million per year too much, let him walk. Helm can center the 2nd, Anderson the 3rd, and Emmy the 4th. Plus Jarnkrok is gonna get some time with the big club next year, and will only be a two hour ride to the Joe in case of an emergency.
