#2619182 Nyquist Files For Arbitration

Posted by FlashyG on Today, 04:05 AM

The mistake many making here is assuming that this case even gets before an arbitrator.

 

Neither side wants that, no player wants to hear his employer explain all his shortcomings in an effort to cut his salary. Nyquist has excellent regular season production but he'd be roasted on his awful playoff numbers to this point. Still I think he'd get a better offer by going to arbitration than what I think he's going to sign before it gets there.

 

I expect him to take a deal in the 3.75 to 4.25 million range, similar to Kadri's but perhaps a little longer.

#2618397 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

More Green on TSN: "I was willing to take a little bit less on term to go to a great organization that I’m extremely excited to play for."

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


Fewer years = Less time to complain. Gotta get the shots in while they can, and make em count more than 3 years worth of complaints...

I'm just happy to see Holland taking some chances, especially after Weiss blew up in his face. You can't be scared of free agency just because some deals don't work. You've got to build first and foremost from the draft for sure, more than ever in this era. But you can't accommodate for everything in the draft. You've got to plug holes via trade and free agency. There's no guarantee these moves will get us a Cup or work out at all, but you've got to keep trying. And these deals today are pretty good ones.

 

But if these too blow up, I really will be convinced that Holland is 100% completely cursed.

just no to #90 please. Just take a new number, I dunno, #29 or #33 or #51, doesn't matter, just no #90.




#2618319 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

A good signing.  I know he can't play defense, but we have plenty of defensive minded defenseman.  We just needed one person who can actually move the puck and shoot the puck well. Kronwall has regressed with his shooting.  

 

Plus, Green is a right handed shot.  




#2618078 Free agents this off season

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2015 - 02:09 PM

For the record, Nyquist is probably my favourite player aside from Z and Dats but I wouldn't lose any sleep over trading him for a defensemen like Shattenkirk

Detroit needs to go ahead and outbid for Green and Franson. Deal with the logjam come October. Waive Q and K, trade Smith, whatever. I amf****** sick of always watching these teams getting better, trying things, making ballsy moves and Holland standing pat. I get it, kids, I know, but damn it, you can have the kids next season when you once again have some open spots. You are not going to be able to keep all 4 anyhow. Not with E and Kronner signed forever. You are keeping Danny D for sure. Sign Green and Franson to that group and then you are instantly better. Hell, trade Jensen and Sproul also when the time comes. I love the lore of the streak, but Dats and Z aren't getting any younger, they don't have time to wait for these kids to become regulars. By time any if these 4 kids become regular players, Dats will be retired and Z will have half a back left. Just do it.

You would make a terrible GM

Nyquist is untouchable... If anything Mantha or AA would be the forward and they wouldn't want any of our defenseman I don't think.

 

For the right player no one on this team should  be untouchable except Datsyuk and Zetterberg.

Glad to be rid of Weiss, maybe we should sign Semin? Is like: maybe if I get addicted to meth I can give up doing crack.


#2617514 Alexander semin being bought out

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 30 June 2015 - 01:05 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.

Andersson also. Agreed, too many forwards to add anyone except by trade.

Good deal for both sides. I'm glad he's not in Boston anymore.

#2617150 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by Dabura on 28 June 2015 - 05:21 PM

Re: Trading Howard...

 

Hell no. Unless it makes perfect sense for us.

 

This is a two-goalie league; if you want to win the Cup, a 1a-1b tandem is pretty much a prerequisite (unless you have a perennial Vezina candidate who's durable as hell and consistently excellent). Look at what Darling did for Chicago. Look at what Vasilevskiy did for Tampa. Look at what Talbot did for New York. Look at what Hammond did for Ottawa. Hell, look at what Ozzie did for us in 2008. Hasek faltered (as designated starters are wont to do), and we needed a starter-caliber replacement. If Ozzie is instead some random backup, do we win the Cup that year?

 

Howard-Mrazek would and will be one of the league's best tandems (if not the best), and it'll cost us a combined cap hit of, like, $7M. It's pretty much an ideal situation. Howard was an All-Star last season (pre-injury, of course) and his "backup" is a prodigious stud. They'll push each other, bring out the best in each other. It'll be great.

 

For the first time in foreverrrrrr, I'm not the least bit concerned about the talent in net.




#2617121 #73 OA - Defenseman Vili Saarijarvi

Posted by Shinzaki on 28 June 2015 - 01:30 PM

Erik  Karlsson is 5-11ish and about 180....I'd do cartwheels if we had that guy.  I'll bet Sarvi could grow into someone close to that size easily.
