#2664478 HNIC Rumor: Datsyuk to return to Russia

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 April 2016 - 08:40 PM

There's suggestion on the Detroit News by Krupa that says declining skills may be at the heart of Pav's possible decision to retire after this season.  Not that I am saying Pav is bad, but it is obvious his age is catching him.

 

I suggest to Holland that he go hard and spare NO expense on trying to get Stamkos so Pav can move to the 3rd line (along with Z) and take the pressure off of him to be the top player here, and then maybe he'll finish his contract out.

 

Its on you Holland! Get this done! Spare NO expense!

 

I remember when Lidstrom didn't look the same anymore in his final season. He chose to retire rather than come back just to be average. Some guys want to play at a top level or retire.

Lucic - Datsyuk - Mantha
Larkin - Zetterberg - Abby
Tatar - AA - Nyquist
Helm - Sheahan - Glendening
Jurco
 
Yandle - Dekeyser
Kronwall - Green
Ericsson - Marchenko
XO
 
Mrazek
Enroth
 
This would be my ideal wish for a nice off season...IF Pav stays...if he leaves, things get complicated, we may have to focus more on a center rather than Lucic...

You just posted this exact same lineup in this same thread less than 4 hours ago. Slow day at work?

I don't know why people are concerned about overpaying. If there's no one available who can make us a contender for the next couple years overpay to at least improve. Dont just stand pat and wait for the absolute perfect moment. I'm more concerned with term than price.

Green is a good example. It was risky, it's questionable if it worked, but it's only for two more years. And if this year is an aberration with everyone sucking there's still a good chance he improves, too.

Signing Yandle in the off-season would be a big help on the back end. And Holland has been trying to get him for a few years

I don't think the team will change until Holland is gone. They are now stuntin the growth of Mantha and AA. They both should be playing more, sick of Zetterberg running this team.

the $75M question is, IF Stamkos comes here does he get to wear #91?

No.

 

They'll retire Fedorov's jersey. They've hinted at it way too many times now. And the way Fedorov gave Detroit 120% of the credit for his career in his hall of fame reception - I think he's sucked up to the org enough to get it. Not to mention the one liner he threw in his interview when they asked him "So you still come to Detroit?" and his response was "I never left home - I just work far away (in russia)".

 

I'm sure Mike Illitch is soon to get over it like most of us did (I got over it last year).

But beyond all that the odds of Stamkos coming here......... yea.. 




#2662545 3/28 GDT : BUFFALO SABRES AT DETROIT RED WINGS, 7:30 PM ET

Posted by WingedWheel91 on 28 March 2016 - 01:46 PM

PUCK DROP:

7:38 PM EST VS THE 23RD RANKED TEAM IN THE NHL WHO SOMEHOW ONLY HAVE 6 FEWER WINS THAN WE DO.

 

START TIME: (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH PUCK DROP)

-8:46 PM BECAUSE GOD KNOWS WE'LL BE DOWN 3-0 AFTER THE 1ST.

 

DET LINE COMBOS

-DATSYUK, ZETTERBERG AND (10) OTHER FORWARDS WHO CAN SKATE LIKE HELL, CREATE VERY FEW SCORING CHANCES, SUSTAIN LITTLE TO NO OFFENSIVE ZONE TIME, AND SPEND MOST SHIFTS RETRIEVING PUCKS OUT OF THEIR OWN ZONE.

-KRONWALL, DEKEYSER AND (4) OTHER DEFENCEMEN WHO CANT RETRIEVE, OR MOVE THE PUCK OUT OF THEIR OWN ZONE. ALTHOUGH (1) DISPLAYS A NIFTY T-DRAG FROM TIME TO TIME (BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT 6,000,000 PER WILL GET YA!).

-1 GOALIE WHO CAN ACTUALLY HANDLE THE PUCK BETTER THAN MOST OF OUR DEFENCEMEN, BUT ISN'T STARTING TONIGHT BECAUSE HE'S BEEN HANDLING TOO MANY PUCKS INTO HIS OWN NET LATELY.

 

DET INJURIES: (THE MOST DEPRESSING LIST OF ALL)

-DREW MILLER

 

THAT IS CORRECT. WE LITERALLY HAVE (1) 4TH LINE LEFT WINGER INJURED - AND WE STILL CANT SCORE.

 

TEAM SCOPE:

DET - THERE IS LITERALLY NO WAY TO PREDICT HOW THIS TEAM WILL PLAY TONIGHT.

 

BUF - THERE IS LITERALLY NO WAY TO PREDICT HOW THIS TEAM WILL PLAY TONIGHT.

 

PREDICTION:

AUSTON MATTHEWS WILL BE SELECTED 1ST OVERALL IN THE 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT.

I think Holland will try his best to sign Stamkos but it will be a nightmare around here... Much like the Suter and Parise situation

I was at Puck Talks Live http://www.homestand...k-talks-toronto in Toronto last week. They were talking about Stamkos. Chris Johnson from Sportsnet thinks Stamkos is going to sign with the Wings. It was funny, about a 1/3 or the room when he said it, myself included, cheered :)

We didn't get Nash because it was inter-divisional and the price was high...same as Kessel and Hamilton.  Kesler had a NTC and didn't list Detroit as a destination.  That I agree, we were a victim of.  But I think it would cost less to get someone from the West...

True. Inter division always costs more. But beggers can't be choosers either. Yes we are entering the beggers area..... Yikes......
