#2521917 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 May 2014 - 09:31 PM

putting my hatred for Franzen aside, same could be said of him that you just said of Kindl.  He needs a change of scenery and I do think he can become a 30 goal scorer again.  I think he has also grown stale in this system.  That is why I always do my fantasy trade scenario with Vancouver. I think playing with the Sedins could help him.

I am absolutely for getting rid of Kindl, no matter if we sign a vet or not...I just think that finally he has peaked about as high as a mountain in Florida.  He fooled us all the shortened season.

is this the draft thread or next seasons needs thread? Because no matter who is drafted, he isn't gonna help next season.


if we must mention the draft in this thread, then I say trade to pick for someone who will help us next season.

I believe if we are getting help at the forward position, it will come via trade. No UFA out there worth outbidding someone for.

neat. I think they got Jimmy Howards movement down pat! He barely moved on any of those goals...so realistic!

No thank you. Besides, in the NHL there is something called interdivisional rape. Then there is Detroit rape. Then there are fair trades. They ask for the moon from a divisional rival, they ask for God's only son from Detroit, they accept 1980's Lake Erie from everyone else...

#2519643 So what do we have to trade?

Posted by LeftWinger on 07 May 2014 - 04:40 PM

I agree with the Howard stuff too.  He will be better with better defense in front of him.  We also need consistent scoring as well.  The best trade scenario I seen on these threads was the one that involved Helm and Kesler.  I like that deal and I think Vancouver, and their needs would do it as well.  I still would like to see the asking price for Kesler and Edler. If you can acquire those two, our score and our D become instantly better.  You have to ditch Kindl though, he is no longer an NHL defenseman.  Get a low pick for him, more than likely future considerations...


IMO our tradable guys are: Franzen, Helm, Smith, Almqvist, Ferraro, Callahan, Andersson, Kindl, Abdelkader, Miller and Ericsson.  Howard if you can secure a better goalie, or if Mrazek was in a better position to take over. Weiss if he submits some teams in in modified NTC.


Am I saying trade them all? No, but we need upgrades up front and on D.  Folks and or picks have to go in order to get better.

aw, no quotes? Ain't that the Juckf****** Pott!

#2518476 Wings will buy out Tootoo, not Franzen.

With what Franzen brings to this team, he isn't worth Emmerton's salary...seriously. I don't care about his 5 goals a week every third month.  Until Franzen is gone, this team will never get above a wild card spot and never win another Cup.


Franzen after "The Choice"  0 Cups...


Hossa after "The Choice" 2 Cups and still in the playoffs... Every since Hossa left and we got stuck with :balloon: The Wings have three 2nd round losses and two 1st round losses...haven't had a 40 goal scorer since. Franzen has averaged 0.375 PPG in the playoffs since 2010, only 0.5 since the 08 Cup.  Hossa? 0.75 PPG. PLUS the 2 Cups...


It is what it is, but Holland has to know that Franzen is done...he has to. He has to look at him float around 5 months out of the season and just curse up and down! I picture him doing the "Darn darn darn darn" dance of Herman Munster....Mule my ass, more like Llama or Emu...or Sloth.


Oh, and the report that Hossa was offered a contract before Franzen, that may be, but it was well less than what Chicago gave him because Holland was offering Hudler $3.5M at the same time.  Hudler and Franzen don't equal a fart from Hossa and look what we were stuck with and still are!!!

this team is going nowhere with Howard.

#2514523 Do you want Jonas Gustavsson re-signed?

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 April 2014 - 03:55 AM

I put no, but there should be another option. No, sign somebody else. Mrazek isn't ready, but Monster is too injury prone.

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 April 2014 - 07:06 PM

Melt with you is by Modern English, not  The Cure....



I personally believe its time for a change in the entire playlist at the Joe....along with ousting Karen Newman...


It's a new day and the Joe and soon to be Cadillac Centre ( My name for it) and it's time to bury the past, or maybe even re-live the past a bit with some throwbacks in the music.
