#2684985 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by kipwinger on 23 August 2016 - 04:42 PM

Anybody read the NHL.com "5 Questions" article with Ken Holland? I liked that they're planning to start Zetterberg with Nielsen, but a bit disappointed that he didn't mention AA when talking about prospective centers. I'm going to be really irritated if they develop that kid into a winger.

Fine, so Ericsson goes after Benn again and this time gives him a concussion.  Goes both ways.

But it didn't.. That's what I mean. In reality, Ericsson fighting Benn in the 1st period didn't stop him from hurting Zetterberg in the 2nd period nor did it scare him away. That fight never resolved anything and it's been a year since the incident anyway. It was just an entertaining fight with absolutely nothing accomplished. That's part of what Kip's point was I believe.

I disagree. We would still have a ton of defensively responsible forwards, at least one on every line... That lineup would be nothing like the Oilers...

I think he'll be on the big club.  No doubt about it.  But I think Blashill will (stupidly) use him as a wing.

I have carte blanche and will always cheer for Pasha and the White, Blue and Red, internationally, that is

Frankly Franzen is exactly what the team needs right now. We would be so lucky if Mantha pans out into at least that type of player.

I'd be thrilled if Mantha turned out exactly like Franzen. Though I hope he'd learn to keep his head out of the way of traffic a little better than Johan.

I'm at the point where I don't have any confidence that Holland will pull off a big trade to bring in that much needed top pair defenseman. I don't buy that he's unable to, or we don't have the pieces other teams want, I just think he's unwilling to give up the assets to get it done. I think a package including Nyquist / Tatar, plus a prospect and / or pick(s) would be enough to get a top pair defenseman, he's just not willing to put together the necessary pieces to get such a deal done...

Lol we gotta find the DRG writer and send this to him.

And apparently this writer had the cops called on him by the Detroit Lions. Outstanding.

Darren Helm third line center is solid, but overpaid by close to a million a year. Darren Helm scoring line winger sucks.


#2683457 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 18 July 2016 - 11:10 PM

I live about 45 minutes from Nashville, for the fans and the community, be it a seemingly small one, I hope he does well here and it draws more fans to the sport. It may even get me out to my first Preds game, I've lived here 3 years, maybe it's about time. 

 

I'm personally a big fan of the guy, he has a big heart, a big personality, and was overwhelmingly charitable for his community when playing in Montreal. He's good for the sport, plain and simple. I hope he's well received in Tennessee. 




#2683178 Glendening signs 4-year, $1.8m AAV extension

Posted by kickazz on 14 July 2016 - 01:22 PM

This team hasn't gotten past the 1st round in three years and we're resigning the same players until the year 2021. 

 

All of Helm, Glendog, Abdelkader, Ericsson contracts are way too long. (can't blame anyone for Ericsson contract- he was expected to be a good top 4 D-man)

 

Kenny is doing bad guys. Still not a hater but legitimately calling him out. 

 

It's not Glendog or maybe even his individual contract that's a huge problem. It's the sum of all parts. Right now the team is built around Helm, Ericsson, Glendog, Abdelkader, Nielsen for the next 4-5 years. Yikes...
