Brian McGrattan
Andrew Peters
Eric Boulton
Jared Boll (RFA)
Dan Carcillo (RFA)
Jamal Mayers
Nick Tarnasky



Boulton (HW) can take regular shifts
Mayers (MW) can take regular shifts

Boll would be perfect fit - too bad Holland doesn't have a balls to send him offer sheet...

I'll take a Mike Modano over a gritty forward today. No cup since, when was it? '99? He has to be hungry. And where better to win another than his home state?



Hell yes - let's offer 1 year contract to Gordie Howe - no cup since '55 - he has to be hungry...

I def didn't think he'd go for 1.8... I guess his past injuries contributed a bit to the lower cap hit. I would have taken him at 1.8.


Exactly kind of player and deal that Detroit/Holland should be going after... I would like to know what Holland is doing now

Boll and Thornton are my top 2.

Thornton resigned w/ Boston, Boll is RFA but honestly, he is PERFECT FIT for Detroit...

Let's just send offer sheet to Boll 3 years / $3M and get Brookbank or Scott and that's it... :yowza:

Yeah, that's gotta be it.

That, or he didn't feel like ridiculously overpaying for players that aren't that important. Boogaard for $1.625 per, Armstrong for $3....ridiculous. Kenny *shouldn't* have any part of this.

1a. Asham 1b. Winchester 1c. Nystrom
2. Konopka

fair enough




1a, 1b and 1c are all MW

2 can fight with HW


Asham's best fighting days are behind him (Montreal era) now he looks more to score and less to fight. I would take Asham instead of Cleary - but not as 4th line as Holland is looking at...

Prust > Winchester/Nystrom


#1982334 Wings' first draft pick - 22nd overall

Posted by Dominator2005 on 09 May 2010 - 07:12 PM

Obviously in the cap world draft picks and great scouting are more important than ever before. Last year Holland traded down which I think was a brilliant move as our scouts do an amazing job drafting late and picked up an extremely underrated kid named Andrej Nestrasil - big new-age powerforward.

One kid that dropped in the 2010 draft is Kirill Kabanov. The reason, from what I understand, is he's a flight risk and has a bad attitude. How true this is, I don't know. But some suggest that he could dart off to the KHL if he flakes out.... which is why he likely won't get picked early in the first round. That said, the kid has top 5 talent, has puck skills that would make Datsuyk and Larionov say "wow!" (watch videos on youtube and see for yourself, the kid is insane).

Is he worth the 22nd pick for Detroit or should Holland trade down again? Wings desperately need to get some top 6 players in the system. What would you like to see Holland do with the 22nd pick?



Wow...

Sounds like a younger version of what Brad Stewart does now (noting that he was considered an offensive prospect coming into the league... his current role came after he moved to Boston).

We could definitely use a kid who's 6'4 at age 17-- he could put another inch or two on over the next few years. Add strong defensive ability, possible offensive upside and a ton of physicality and it looks like a really strong pick.



Sorry - but who is Brad Stewart???

Dylan Mcilrath - SOLD!!!

For those who wants to trade Zetterberg for Plekanec and Price - it's simple YOU ARE STUPID...

Plekanec great set-up player... This is his season so far and he was playing with Cammalleri... Plekanec is gone (he will ask for $4.5M @ 5M)

Price - outplayed BIG TIME in Montreal by Halak - he's loved by "boy-lovers" so please stop this crap...

BTW - Plekanec is invisible so far in playoffs... it's just stupid...

#1927030 Babcock: Goaltending the best since I've been here

Posted by Dominator2005 on 28 March 2010 - 09:34 AM

I have to agree with Babcock...

Howard is most consistent goalie in Detroit (since 2002).

Flip-flop has 8 goals and Carcillo has 10 goals...

Get away in the sense of the media and fans.

It seems no one wants to hold him accountable for his actions.



This. Has. Nothing. To. Do. With. Crosby.

And I defend Crosby because I do believe that whining and diving is less serious then potentially ending players careers on a laundry list of borderline hits.

But again, let's focus on Ovechkin. I do not want to talk about Crosby.



Crosby is BIG ******!!! Ovi is ROCK STAR!!!
