#2667092 Playoff Lines + Mantha Back to GR

You're probably right - but our D gets worse when that happens.

Can't get much worse than it is now , ouellet isn't spectacular but he's safe and can move the puck , think he'll help the team .... I personally believe one of Tatar/nyquist will be dealt to land a defensemen which should help us better

Personally not willing to handcuff ourselves with Quincey at 5 million for 4-5 years , sooner or later we have to play some of our prospects , it's very unfortunate that it always happens when we're forced to play them rather than giving them chances

#2666816 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

If the Devils can get away from Kovalchuks cap hit just by retiring, the wings should be able to do the same with pavs.

Best trade his contract to a cap floor team, or be handcuffed all next season. If Holland doesn't do this he is worse than this season have proven.

It said in the article that holland won't trade his contract

In that article, it says that the Red Wings told him they will not trade his contract to relieve the cap. Holland, in his obsessive loyalty will eat the $7.5M hit for the year and handicap his team for no reason but to stay loyal. f*** Holland, he needs to be fired!

That's not even staying loyal it's not like the guy is gonna play for that team or even be mentioned by that team. Holland is a damn fool

#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.  

#2664386 Fixing this mess....

Lucic - Datsyuk - Mantha
Larkin - Zetterberg - Abby
Tatar - AA - Nyquist
Helm - Sheahan - Glendening
Yandle - Dekeyser
Kronwall - Green
Ericsson - Marchenko
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.
