#2681256 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by DickieDunn on Yesterday, 11:52 AM

There's no guarantee these players wanted to come to Detroit, what is Holland supposed to do? The only leverage he would have is to overpay and look at the criticism he gets for that.

So don't sign anyone. No deal is better than a bad one, Holland used to understand that.

I want Nielsen here but he's not THE guy. We still need a star. Hopefully he and Larkin develop good chemistry.

5.5 isn't terrible. Helm is a $4 million player and Nielsen is twice the player.

Helm isn't a $4 mil player, Holland overpaid him.
I can't express what I truly feel about Holland right now without getting banned.

5 years al almost $4 mil for a checking line player with delusions of grandeur. Ffs. I'm fully on board with the fire Holland crowd now. If he gives Neilson a 5+year deal, I'll drive to Detroit and kick Holland right in the nuts.

#2680727 Other than Stamkos, which FA forward do you want?

You would think, realistically, that if Larsson got you Hall, Marchenko would get you RNH.

Larsson was a high pick and still has upside, Marchenko might not even be an average second pairing guy. Edmonton still got hosed though

and a top D

And a coach and maybe a GM

Ask your this, Nielsen 5 @ 5.5 or Helm 5 @ 4.5?

I'm signing Nielsen all day. I'd still love to have all 3 isles. Then if we can trade for a D. I'd be excited moving forward.

I'd rather have Backes for a year or two at a high cap hit than a lower hit for longer

Red Wings still in talks with Darren Helm. If deal can't get done, he's UFA tomorrow.

Let him walk

There isn't a #1 center left. Staal might not be a #2 even, he's fallen off quite a bit. Backes is better, but if won't sign for under five years, Staal at one year might be the better option. Richards is just bad.


#2679672 Drew Miller re-signs... 1 year deal $1.025 million

Posted by DickieDunn on 27 June 2016 - 01:39 PM

Miller and Glendening are possession black holes. Whatever positives they bring are outweighed by the fact that they spend all of their time at even-strength without the puck (often against top players, because reasons). You don't win with a fourth line that's "gritty and real good defensively." You win with a fourth line that's talented enough to be a third line and can devour other team's bottom-sixers. Also, this is one less spot for a kid, which is always good to see. (yeah but thoes kidzn arnt real gud defensivly)

It's almost impossible to have that in a cap league. If the 4th line cam contribute in any way, it's a positive. The real issue is over use of them, and that's a coaching issue.


#2679318 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

Posted by DickieDunn on 25 June 2016 - 01:39 AM

The second rounder alone almost makes it worthwhile to move down 4 spots, getting rid of Datsyuk's cap hit makes it a steal.

Put Lucic in the winged wheel and he's still a piece of s***

Same can be said about a lot of guys who played in Detroit

Your argument is tautological. You think the data is "inaccurate" because it doesn't comport with what you see, and you trust what you see because the data is supposedly inaccurate.

Or, in other words, Tatar isn't a good possession player because I don't see it. And I dont see it because i dont believe possession stats. And round and round we go

The same thing can be said of you. "What I see is irrelevant because stats never lie."

I don't really care about the lefty righty thing either. We have enough righties to make balanced pairs now with Green, Marchenko, and maybe Sproul.

I wouldn't trade Tatar thought. I want a team based on possession and he's been one of the best possession forwards in the NHL for the last two years.

Stats saying Tatar is one of the best forwards for that tells you how much stars can be off. He skates around refusing to pads then tries to skate through 3 defenders and either gets a weak shot or gives it up
