#2196100 Drew Doughty

They just might if they realize he is not going to sign with them. You are talking like they have him under contract which is not the case.


Maybe. Chances are there's a dumber team willing to throw better stuff at them though.

If we flip enough average players and prospects at a team, they'll surely give us one of their best.

#2195524 Wings looking at Ty Conklin

Posted by Dominator2005 on 02 July 2011 - 06:47 PM

Well, we could have Vokoun at $1.5M for this year... <_<

So why didn't we get him then? Holland is looking for a goaltender and Vokoun knows that Wings have only one goalie signed. Do you think Holland is stupid and doesn't know what's going around in the league? Vokoun wanted to sign for a team where he's the clear number one goalie.


#2195490 RFA/UFA Signings

Posted by Heroes of Hockeytown on 02 July 2011 - 05:54 PM

Let's also not forget -

AT THE TIME, he was a significant acquisition, as he was leading the NHL in points.

And all he did was lead (or tie for the lead) in team playoff scoring for the next two seasons, and come through in the clutch in his third playoff season as a Wing. I will never let anyone believe that Robert Lang was anything but a positive force for the Red Wings during his time here.

And only one of those trades got use a cup.

Welcome to sports man. Nothing guarantees anything.


#2195455 Wings sign D Ian White to 2-year, $5.75m contract

Posted by redwingfan19 on 02 July 2011 - 05:11 PM

It's sad when people here hope for a player on their team to do poorly just so they can rub it in everyone's face.



it's not called hoping. it's knowing.


#2195322 Wings sign D Ian White to 2-year, $5.75m contract

Posted by ilmickeyli on 02 July 2011 - 03:33 PM

This is an adequate signing. Still think we're worse than last season as it stands though.


This. I can only imagine Lids is second-guessing his decision to come back.


#2195371 Wings sign D Ian White to 2-year, $5.75m contract

Posted by e_prime on 02 July 2011 - 03:58 PM

If Holland is able to get one of the as-of-yet unsigned RFA defencemen (Yandle please) he'll move Kindl and use Commie as an affordable 7th d-man.


Would not be averse to this at all. ...but Holland isn't really doing any more work this offseason is he?? :ph34r:


Not all that knowledgable about him. Glad to see we signed someone, and people seem to think it's a bargain, so cool. Doesn't sound like he's anything to put us over the top, but if it pushes Big E down the depth chart I'm okay with it. Thumbs up, Holland!


Like the C64 signing, White will offer some serious competition for ice time for the D-men not named Kronwall, Stuart, and Lidstrom. I like this move. Hopefully the new D-coach will inspire some competition between them as well.


#2195099 Richards to NYR

Posted by ShanahanMan on 02 July 2011 - 10:30 AM

Hanks the exception as he is a beast. Franzen and Richards are in the same boat though...


I suppose I can take that to an extent.

I just love how everyone on here calls this signing by the rangers dumb and the Franzen signing by Holland as "genius".

Talk about homerism.


#2195039 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by VM1138 on 02 July 2011 - 08:48 AM

His exact words were, "if we don't find another top 4 defenseman, Ericsson will fill that role".

Read the article again. It's a definite possibility.


Thank you, I don't know why everyone jumped down my throat. It was written right in the article from Holland's mouth.

Top 4 is different from Top 2 as quoted by VM.


Lidstrom-Stuart-Kronwall-Rafalski/Ericsson. That's where I made that stretch. Ericsson filling a top 4 when there are already the other top 3 is the same as filling Rafalski's place. Maybe he won't be replacing Rafalski exactly in the sense that he'll be doing the same role, and maybe that's what people thought I was saying, but the reality is if E is in the Top 4 that means the Top 4 took a hit from last season, which is bad.


#2194778 PHI signs Andreas Lilja

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 01 July 2011 - 08:31 PM

I still can't see Philly making it that far in the playoffs. Even with Jagr and Lils and all the other moves they are making. They are looking for the right direction but I don't think they've found it yet.


They need Hudler, and we have just the Hudler they're looking for.


#2194711 Wings sign D Mike Commodore to 1-year, $1m contract

Posted by Carman on 01 July 2011 - 06:51 PM

I hate this signing because hes cheap and was a healthy scratch on a Columbus team that was horrible defensively last year. Also it doesn't address any of Detroit biggest needs, like a consistent RW/LW, or the 50 points the Wings lost with Rafi.


1). Columbus was a mess, and his salary was higher than his ability and he struggled with that. He was a scape-goat for a horrible defense and was frusterated. He'll be much better in a 5/6/7th role.
2). He was the #3 d-man during Carolina's cup run, including >3min/game shorthanded toi
3). He's big.
4). We've been very successful on reclamation projects in the past, Commodore's potential is high he just needs the tools to get there again.

I don't see any negatives with this move.
