#2618443 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

In typical LGWs fashion, the thread about the Richards signing has more pages than the Mike Green one. 




#2618421 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

What number will he wear?

 

Like left-winger said, let's hope it's not 90. That number should be retired, and not in a good way.




#2618331 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by rick zombo on 01 July 2015 - 04:13 PM

Babs leaves and we hit the market lol. Nice to see that we get one of the bigger fish in this years free agents.

 

 

Exactly. TSN had Green listed as THE top UFA. Maybe that will shut the media up for a bit about no one wanting to come to Detroit. 




#2618325 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Zetterberg datsyuk abdelkader
Tatar sheahan nyquist
Helm glendening pulkkinen
Jurco anderssen miller

Ferraro Franzen + richards ? = 15 guys ... Doesn't include Callahan,larkin or another rookie having a chance of getting in


So if we get richards who gets dealt? Anderssen and? I hope we don't sacrifice a pulkkinen/jurco for a miller

 

Not even when Babcock was coach. Certainly not with Blashill. He's probably got big plans for Pulkinnen and Jurco. 




#2618284 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Except he hadn't just won the Cup. 

 

 

Meh. He'd be a depth signing. Still good on the PP. And waaaaay better than Cleary. 




#2618281 Now for a #2 C.

Posted by rick zombo on 01 July 2015 - 03:40 PM

Just thinking out load here. the BL is set. the one big are of need is a #2 C/big RHed winger. As of right now it is easy to see the following lineup:

 

Z-datsyuk-Abby

Nyquist-open-tatar

Jurco-Sheahan-Pulks

Anderson-Glendening-Miller

ferraro-open

 

Dekeyser-Green

Kronwall-Ericsson

Smith-marchenko

Lashoff or Kindl

 

Howard/Mrazek

 

We could keep 8 d or move Kindl/KFQ. If Z is the #2 C then we need a top 6 winger. What we don't have is a big RHed physical guy that scores. We also have helm who is kinda without a true position. he is a checking C when used correctly, but Glendening does the same job for 1/3 the price. We also have the cap room for a big contract.

Thoughts? Hopes? Dreams?

 

Why do people keep forgetting about Helm? Also, Franzen could be in the line-up opening night. 




#2618185 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by rick zombo on 01 July 2015 - 03:07 PM

Maybe we don't get him if Babs is still here. Who knows what kind of influence he would have.

Maybe we don't get him because he wouldn't want to come here and play as a 3rd pairing shut-down D man while having his balls busted on a daily basis. 




#2618177 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by rick zombo on 01 July 2015 - 03:03 PM

Short term gives him incentive to play well. He could very well have a career year or two with the Wings. 

 

Also: LOL suck it Babcock!!!!!!!!!!! You leave, and finally a RHed D wants to come play for the Wings.

Good deal. Not concerned about the money. Great term.

It appears there are a bunch of guys not getting the offers they expected.

I thought you were talking about Bill O'Reilly.  

 

 

I thought Baba. 




#2617950 Free agents this off season

Posted by rick zombo on 01 July 2015 - 12:15 PM

We can trade/waive kindl. I'd like to trade Smith for a pick

Cleary watch 2015, who will be the unlucky suitor?

 

Doubt they trade Smith after they just signed him. Not Holland's style.

Craig Custance ‏@CraigCustance 22s22 seconds ago

Detroit Red Wings still very much in the mix for Mike Green who is weighing multiple offers.

 

 

Fire up the jet, grab Cheli and Illitch and go get him.  :lol:




#2617508 Alexander semin being bought out

Posted by rick zombo on 30 June 2015 - 12:50 PM

Abdlekader - Datsyuk - Semin

Zetterberg - Sheahan - Nyquist

Tatar - Helm - Franzen

Miller- Glendenning - Jurco

Pulkinnen

Ferraro

Weiss

 

Unless Holland's seriously planning on making a trade, that's too many forwards.
