#2682422 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by LeftWinger on 06 July 2016 - 02:20 PM

This thread has been high jacked by the world wide criminal syndicate known as the Corsi Bandits.

It's actually making people not want to post or read here. I find myself just scrolling past the posts that have "short story" qualifications. Or name calling arguments.

What I'd like to know is which would you rather do:

Trade AA plus 1st for Shattenkirk

OR

Nyquist plus 2nd for Fowler

For my money I'm going Fowler, I'd sweetin the deal a bit with a GR defenseman like Sproul or XO if I had to. But no way I give up AA.

No.


#2682196 Who should get A?

Posted by LeftWinger on 04 July 2016 - 05:45 PM

I agree...but Holland won't give up what it would take to get a "Kessel" on our team.

He needs to make the deal for Trouba/Shatt/Fowler and then let this core grow over the next 6 years winning and losing and learning.

I'd prefer Fowler or Trouba and then if he gets to July 1, then try to sign Shatt. Or even at the deadline...


#2682135 For the Kenny apologists, what Holland move would change your stance o

Posted by LeftWinger on 04 July 2016 - 08:40 AM

I have been and will be a huge Holland critic. For not getting a shot at Stamkos, I think he did pretty well on the 1st. I hate the Helm deal, but at least Franzen cap will wash it out come LTIR.

I think, for most, Holland needs to make a trade that solidifies his D. Shatt, Fowler or Trouba would be huge for him.

Also, if he could find a way to dump E and Howard, that would do wonders for his fan rep right now.

As for who is dealt. The two mentioned above and Nyquist would be my choice to go,that would be super in my eyes. Also, if you aren't going to play them, then trade Pulkkinen and Jurco. He would also score some points if he managed to get some sort of return for the guys that seem like will have to go on waivers come October.

Is that the origin of JFP?

 

Yes.  I don't think this guy even posted too much more or before that, he just rolled in, laid down perhaps the absolute best post game meltdown that we've ever seen in these parts and split! It seems like yesterday, but dang it was 2012? Wow!

 

It looks like his last active was around April of 2012. maybe he'll make an appearance again sometime!

...so, Tatar is better, but Nyquist will be kept instead. Ya, that sounds like Holland.


#2682098 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by LeftWinger on 03 July 2016 - 05:43 PM

My predictions:
Nielsen : 112 points
Vanek : 47 goals, 31 assets (while playing on the 3rd line + winning 1st Vezina).
Errorson : 84 points (Maurice Rocket Richard trophy)
Ott : 357 penalty minutes, 654 hits, + 43 (Winning 1st Lady Bing trophy).
Kronwall : Winning Selke and Calder trophy





And then I woke up

Just an FYI, vezina is for goalies, Selke is for best defensive forward and Calder is Rookie of the Year....lol, I guess you were dreaming!

Rocket Richard is for most goals, I'm pretty sure Jennings is for something entirely different too! 300+ pims is not very lady bing-like. :lol:

Posted by LeftWinger on 03 July 2016 - 03:13 PM

Nielsen will lead the team in points this year...he will have a career points outburst.

Vanek will score 35 goals, 20 on the PP.

Ott will get 68 games in and lead the team in hits and PIM's.

Nyquist and Howard will both be traded along with one of Smith or E. Howard maybe not until the deadline.

One of Pulkkinen or Jurco will not be A Red Wing to start the season.

Helm and Abby will have career years along with Sheahan and Tatar.

Larkin will outscore Eichel and Matthews this season.

...bold predictions part 1.

#2681818 Steve Ott signs 1 year, $800k deal with Detroit

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 July 2016 - 09:29 PM

I guess Sheahan can move down to let Darren "Stonewall Hands" Helm can center the 3rd.

Seriously, either way, I hope Ott earns that spot and stays.


#2681812 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 July 2016 - 09:11 PM

If signing Stamkos would've been an A+, these 3 signed today is a solid B+.

Helm is C-....


#2681787 Steve Ott signs 1 year, $800k deal with Detroit

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 July 2016 - 07:48 PM

Once nyquist Jurco and Pulkkinen are traded, ott will be a very valuable bottom 6 player. Miller/Frk will be our extra forwards.

Let's see....

Zetterberg - Larkin - Abdelkader
Tatar - Nielson - Vanek
Athanasiou - Sheahan - Mantha
Helm - Glendening - Ott
Miller/Frk

LW you know you want KFQ back on here. hahaha =)


Nah, I'm going to have my fill of blaming Helm and Howard for everything!


#2681632 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 July 2016 - 03:13 PM

Let's not get personal guys, not worth suspension.

Most folks are just angry at the Helm deal. Once we lost Stamkos we all knew it was going to be a patchwork day.

I like Nielsen and Vanek. They'll score here and will help the PP and the shootout.

Look at it this way, with only $9.9M left after LTIR and with DD and Mrazek left to sign, NO KFQ!!!!

Gus, Pulk most likely to be traded.
