#2679256 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

It's not all about Stamkos though.

 

There's Okposo, Eriksson, Ladd, Backes, Lucic, Radulov etc. 

Seriously, if we lose on Stamkos, we can add two solid forwards and possibly trade for a top tier d-man.  Either way, we're in a good position heading in to July 1.

Are your hopes ever up? =)

No...Not sure if it's the pessimistic attitude that I have, or the scotch/bourbon?

 

:lol:

Was that 'Carrot-Top' hugging our #1 pick?

#2676616 Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

Posted by F.Michael on 26 May 2016 - 07:17 PM

 

UPDATE: The #RedWings have acquired prospect Dylan Sadowy from San Jose for a third-round draft pick in 2017.

 

 


I watched him his entire OHL career here in Saginaw (until he was traded half way through the season last year, which is typical in the OHL), and Wings fans should be excited. I'd argue he's a little tougher version of Abdelkader with a better scoring touch. He was always the first one to jump in & defend his teammates. Was a good captain here. Great pick-up!

The idea of our beloved Detroit Red Wings adding some players who play with an edge makes my head woozy with delight.


Right. Cause we've NEVER had that type of player on the wings

Years ago we did, but in the last several years - not so much.

Wow. I can't believe Ericsson has never learned this fact. How the heck does he have a spot on this team when he lacks this basic knowledge of physics? Buy him out already.

Hey man, I'm just offering my opinion. No reason to be child like, come back when you wanna act like an adult...

Today I learned LGW knows more about concussions and Franzen's personal health issues than he himself does.


My best friend had to quit hockey his sophomore year of high school hockey because of so many concussions. I've had a couple also so I know a decent amount about them.

Please retire Mule. For your family and your own health retire.

It's just not worth it big man time to hang up the skates and hope he can have a normal life.

Not sure how many posters we have old enough to have attended a game there.  If only GordieSid&Ted didn't get banned.

I really feel bad for him, I was actually excited to see how he does this season, I was optimistic. He seemed really energized to play in the few games he was in. He shouldn't play again until he goes a few months without symptoms instead of just a couple weeks.

The prognosis looks terrible.

 

First it was big hits and he would be out weeks.

 

Then it was big hits and he would be out month or two

 

Then it was minor hit and he was out for half a year.

 

Now he plays two games - no major impact and he's out on IR. (short term it seems like)

 

Am I the only one noticing this trend?? 


Supposedly earlier last month he mentioned that the doctors said his situation won't get worse than it is (physically)

Did you pay attention when Franzen said retirement was something he wasn't considering?

 

So because his symptoms are back and he's being placed on IR as a precaution, he's absolutely donzo? Please, he will sit until his symptoms are gone again, and then he will play. I remember when Crosby was going through this same thing.

 

People are acting like he got rocked with concussion #1000 or something lol that's not the case

 

I didn't say he was for sure done but it doesn't look good. Franzen has been very stubborn throughout this whole concussion ordeal. The thing with these head injuries is its totally on the person who's having  them to call the shots, theres no way of a doctor telling if he can or can't play because theres only "symptoms"

 

If he just sat out (8 months?) and comes back for 2 games and doesn't even get hit and hes facing symptoms again, what's going to happen when he actually gets hit in the fastest game in the world?

 

Pronger's and Savard's symptoms never went away and it doesn't seem like Mule's will either. These things just tend to get worse...
