#2681608 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Wings only have $4.9M left not counting Franzen and Viale LTIR. $9.9M roughly. You got to figure that much is going to DD and Mrazek. No help on D unless we move Salary. Howard, Ericcson or Nyquist. Those are the big three that need to go in a package.


#2681562 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

Right hand shot too.

Still horribly mad at the Helm signing, but I am good with Nielsen and Vanek.

D NOW!!!!

So Holland talked a load of bulls*** at the end of year presser. Change the makeup of the team?

Kenny, tell me how re-signing Helm and Miller changes this teams chances at winning to Cup? We basically traded Chychrun and Datsyuk for Nielsen and Cholowski.

If nothing else changes, he needs to be fired. Until then I will no longer be a fan.

VasilevskiY just re-signed 3 years $10.5M. Sounds perfect for Mrazek to follow. Good numbers imo.

Martin, Vanek would be a good end to this day. I hope we're in on Shattenkirk.


#2681205 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Would we maybe be better off say signing 2-4 guys like mcginn eriksson Brouwer backes and then turning around and trading both Tatar/nyquist in seperate deals along with a prospect/picks and getting one or 2 of trouba/brodin/fowler ... Or a duchene/landeskog maybe being available (long shot)

The forwards are older than nyquist and Tatar but it would enable us to get some defensive help ... Didn't add okposo cause I read his wife wants to go back to minnesota


Ha, anotherf****** loser who let's his wife tell him where to play. How many times is a Minnesota Homer going to sign there only to realize they ain't winning a cup in the next 10 years...you see where it got Vanek when he went home to play where he played college hockey.

Ya, I hear there this nhl vet named Dastook, or something similar over in the KHL that is pretty good... :ninja:

Seriously though, please no more players that could run back "home" at the flip of a coin.

Unless this is a sign and trade then f*** Steven Stamkos! He is now joined the ranks of the Olsen twins in Minnesota.

This says it all. Listen to the audio. He says 1, 2 maybe 3 players...to get better, bigger and deeper. I like it.

maybe it is a done deal.  Would anyone really be surprised?  I mean, its not really about winning anymore for some players. Look at Suter/Parise, they went home.  (even though Suter is from Wisconsin, he went to wifes home.)  Minny is no closer to winning a Cup than Detroit is.  Its not like they went to a team to win.  I wouldn't be surprised if he goes home just to get paid and be home.  Whatever if thats the case.  I still don't think they will winb a Cup in the 7 years he will be there. They just don't have enough pieces and if they give him $10-$12M and have to have a fire sale to clear cap, that'll make them even further away from a Cup.  But, anything can happen.  All we can do is offer him the money, nobody can outbid us this time, its just up to him in the end. I'll be pissed, but not at Holland.
