Datsyuk and Franzem will both likely be out. There is room.

I see this working a well as an unsinkable ship and the best dirigible ever.

#2621233 Pulkkinen re-signs.... 1 year deal

Posted by DickieDunn on 22 July 2015 - 07:16 PM

I'm rooting for him obviously, but I just don't see it translating for Pulkkinen. I personally thought the Wings should have sold high on him while he was tearing up the AHL. I think he's very one dimensional and that one dimension can be taken away by bigger, stronger and faster competition in the NHL. 

Yes... Join the haters. We have cake.

Anyone worrying about losing a guy like Andersson, Ferraro, or Callahan on waivers should find more important things to worry about. They're all dime a dozen players.

BM and Superman had a fight once, the loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of their pants.


He made Hello Kitty say goodbye


They once made BM toilet paper, but it failed because it wouldn't take crap from anybody

If anyone is in trouble it's Andersson. Coaches tend to stick with guys they know

Depth signing for the Griffs

Lol.  You make the prospect of trading him sound like a personal vendetta.  I'd trade him for a top pair, 50 point, right shooting defenseman.  I've advocated as much.  If that's "no real reason" to trade him, then I don't mind being unreasonable. 

There's a difference between trading him for a good player and "he sucks get rid of him."

While I don't think he sucks by any means, I am unconvinced his success will ever translate to the nhl. I hope I'm wrong. I just don't see it.


I've never thought that he'd be more than a 3rd line PP specialist, but the swings players take on here is beyond ridiculous.  They're the best ever, untouchable, gotta get them to the NHL right now until they're in the NHL, then their flaws are seen and they suck and will always suck.  I'd move Pulkkinen in a package for an upgrade somewhere, but just dumping him for no real reason like some people want is foolish.

Until we see what Holland can do to move a defenseman or two out, it's impossible to say what the roster will be like.  Marchenko proved he can play in the NHL, Ouellet showed a lot of promise too and should be ok as an NHL player this coming season.  I'm not sure I'd be thrilled with seeing Quincey and Smith moved without bringing in an upgrade on D and going with both kids though.  That leaves them one big injury away from having Marchenko or Ouellet as a top 4 D for several weeks.  I don't know if either of them will ever be that good, much less their first full NHL season.


As fro his comments on Kindl and Smith, I don't read too much into what coaches and GMs say publicly.  They generally aren't going to say too many bad things and throw their guys under the bus.

Still no.

I hope to see him and Pulk on the 3rd line with a decent center

Ror wants out and I don't blame him. Avs wanted to low ball him since forever and now he t has a chance to finally get paid and appreciated by his new team.


No, The Avs have been wanting to pay ROR like a second line center, which he is, and ROR thinks he's as good as Toews and Stamkos.

Go big or go home.  If they can't get a high end player somehow, let the younger guys fill bigger roles instead of signing some average player like Soderberg or any defenseman on the free agent market.

So you're protecting guys the Wings haven't even gotten yet?
