#2680674 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Craig Custance ‏@CraigCustance 24m24 minutes ago

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

Let him walk


#2680539 Other than Stamkos, which FA forward do you want?

Posted by DickieDunn on 30 June 2016 - 09:41 AM

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

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

It's also called the Detroit media. It's always, always, always, always the same line. "Ken Holland is trying to find a deal that makes sense for the organization, but every GM wants our top young talent. So his hands are tied. So you can't get mad at him. Being a GM is really hard. Sometimes the best trade is the one you don't make. Ken Holland has a hottt bod and dreamy eyes."

Holland used to know that most prospects don't pan out so it's OK to trade them. He's forgotten that.

You guys do realize there are bars, hookers, and often casinos in other NHL cities, right?

No to Vanek, Brown and any of those guys. Vanek has 1! advantage he can score dirty goals the problem is he doesn't work for it and is easy to box out of the crease

Brown looks totally out of shape and doesn't hit as hard as he used to so no thanks. Also Vanek has 2 years and 13 million left no thanks.

Offer sheet trouba with a massive signing bonus and then extend him for 8x8..doubt Winnipeg would match.

Because that's a terrible contract

Vegas Cash Grab.

Either every seat will be sold and less than half used, or less than half will be sold at all. Large portion of the permanent population works nights and/or has better things to spend money on. Horrible idea.
