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

Posted by rick zombo on 01 July 2015 - 03:42 PM

 

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)

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)

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. 




#2618106 Free agents this off season

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.




#2617016 2015 Draft

Posted by rick zombo on 27 June 2015 - 01:35 PM

well, this off season has started off like s***.

 

Why? Because Holland didn't trade for Hamilton, draft McDavid, and trade Howard, Helm, and Franzen for Malkin?  




#2616989 #19 OA Evgeny Svechnikov

Posted by rick zombo on 27 June 2015 - 12:17 PM

I've said it in the draft thread. Love this pick. 




#2616978 2015 Draft

Posted by rick zombo on 27 June 2015 - 12:02 PM

just noticed our pick is right in the middle of jaros and vainio ... nice slap

 

Was it a sad day when you got fired from Detroit's scouting staff? Always agreed with a lot of what you said on here but you're not having a good day are you? When you start agreeing with Frank "lil Don Cherry" Grime's comments, you know there's something wrong. No?

 

My opinion on this draft? Holland and company are getting creative and none of you know enough about Red Wings hockey operations to understand what they're doing. I still remember the epic LOL meltdown LGWings had when they drafted Bertuzzi in the 2nd round. Looks like that might have been a good idea after all.

So I must really be missing something. Svechnikov is an awesome pick at 19th overall. Big. Raw. Fast. Elite skill. And a great demeanour (watch some interviews). There should be way more partying going on here.


#2616790 2015 Draft

Posted by rick zombo on 26 June 2015 - 08:27 PM

I just knew it when they weren't trading back we were gonna take him ... Since we didn't take a dman like we should of and now were f***ed till 73 I'm predicting we're getting rid of mantha now

Our forward prospects are a+ while our d's suck

 

Calm down  :lol:

 

I like to look at the first half of this last sentence and feel grateful. Our forward prospects are a+. Is that not awesome?

 

Depending on who you listen to, Holland can be criticized for lots things but drafting isn't one of them. The Wings always take the best player available and they won't change this strategy anytime soon.
