#2380042 Holland retirement watch?

Posted by evilmrt on 03 April 2013 - 11:11 PM

Jimmy D embarrassed the Wings organization last fall with his farm animals comments, and got fined for it as well. It wouldn't be a big stretch of the imagination to see him retiring, Holland moving up, and Nill as GM. I guess that leaves Lids to come scoop up his Assistant GM position.


#2379109 An interesting point about our apparent deadline strategy

Posted by evilmrt on 03 April 2013 - 02:46 AM

Well this should indicate I don't need to watch any sports tickers tomorrow....

 

 

"Ken Holland says Red Wings Fans Shouldn't Expect Trades"

Not surprised and don't care. The Wings have everything a team needs right now. Granted that's when they are 100% healthy.

 

This is stupid. At the very least, the Wings could be picking up some draft picks.

Perhaps I am the only one on here that thinks Pomminville would be great in a Wings jersey. He's not big ( 6 foot, 185) so a bit bigger than Z BUT plays a physical game, its a lowish cap hit and the dude is a "score first" winger. I think he would be great with either Dats or Z!

 

This could be a good option as it will require less assets than Loui, and I think Pomminville could thrive here. He seriously needs a change of scenery.

Derek Morris has been put on the block by PHX. Ian White + conditional pick for Morris? 




#2377744 with trade deadline approaching - who's our tradeable assets?

Clean out the old now, stock up on picks, pursue one or two guns for offense this summer, snag a top pairing D man.

#2377348 Lindy Ruff an option?

Posted by evilmrt on 31 March 2013 - 03:10 PM

The problem is not Babcock. The problem is the lack of synergy between Holland and Babcock. Holland doesn't give Babs the kind of team he openly asks for and needs. WTF do you think will happen in that situation?

the biggest issue i have with the holland critics is that most of them completely gloss over the good moves holland has made and only focus on the bad ones, in particular the hossa and franzen situation.

 

Holland never gets credit for giving osgood another chance after the lockout when everyone said he was washed up

he never gets credit for signing datsyuk long term right after the lockout ended. this board was calling for holland's head after that one. datsyuk is now arguably the league's best player.

he never gets credit for trading for brad stuart during the cup winning season. he turned out to be our number 2 dman for 3 years after that

he never gets credit for going out and getting rafalski the day after Schneider left back in the summer of 07

 

these are all moves that directly helped the wings win a cup but i never see any of the holland critics ever give him credit for these moves

 

These were all moves while Scotty was right there beside Kenny. Come on, it is weird, isn't it?

still on top?

 

the hawks haven't won a playoff series since their cup run

 

 

 

 

Yeah, the Hawks are a horrible team...  :eh:

 

Thank you, Scotzman. I figured they must be good since they broke that little record thingy. 




#2375074 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

For a young player who is described as a diehard red wings fan its taking WAYYYYY too much time to decide where hes going to play


Yep, I don't get the circus act when the other few NCAA players that were sought after signed quietly on Monday or Tuesday.

Neal - Crosby - Iginla
Morrow - Malkin - Kunitz
Cooke - Sutter - Dupuis
Glass - Kennedy - Adams
 
Letang - Orpik
Niskanen - Martin
Despres - Murray
 
Even if we make the finals against PIT, we can't compete with that.... although u never know these days


This is what GMs are supposed to be thinking about. On paper, we're no match for that lineup. Thankfully, weird things always happen in the second season. Still, a GM should not count on it and sit on his ass while others assemble teams like that.

Who cares, we have Franzen.
