In Topic: Depth chart for RW/Griffins

Yesterday, 07:41 AM

What is with "need" to get rid on Quincey. They guy played good last year and is a pretty good guy to be on our third pairing. I think some people have just branded him in a certain light, and it doesn't matter how he plays they will always see him that way.


I think it would just be good asset management.  We have plenty of depth at D, Quincey is unlikely to return, so why not go out and try to get a 2nd or 3rd round pick for him.

Nothing you are saying is wrong. I should have been more detailed in my response, my comment was in reference to people saying that they could have helped up land Oshie. They could be in the deal, but it would take alot more with them being soon to be UFA's.

Brouwer is a UFA after this season too though.

Then you're not talking to very many people.


"Yeah but I went to a Caps board and everyone was glad to be rid of him!"


OK. I can play the some-random-anonymous-person-on-the-internet-said-something game.




Down in the comments section, dcsportsfan85 says:



I've watched Green. (I pay special attention to the players I'd like to see the Wings target.) I've gone over his stats, both basic and "fancy." I've looked at him through the lens of all manner of metrics. I've watched our team struggle to move the puck, struggle to establish a precision transition game, struggle to score at even strength, struggle to get pucks on net from the point, struggle to squeeze point production out of a scoring-challenged D corps. All things considered, Mike Green at $6M x 3 is, to me, a great move - and I say that as someone who tends to be very cynical and pessimistic about Ken Holland's decision making.


Is there some inherent risk? Sure. But I'm not expecting him to set the world on fire and win the Norris and Hart. I'm hoping for a good second-pairing defenseman who can give us 10 goals and 40 points and help us spend more time with the puck and, by extension, on the attack. We have more than enough left-shooting "defensive defensemen." Adding a high-end right-shooting scoring defenseman for nothing but money? I'm totally down with that.



Good post, I hope you are right.


If anything, I just hope Wings fans go into next season not thinking this guy is the second coming of Bobby Orr (obvious hyperbole here).


Green is obviously not washed up or anything and while I have my concerns about the deal and do not think it is a slam dunk...hopefully the last couple months of the season is not representative of Green's overall play and he fits in well in the Wings system.

I see you have very sound logic no point in discussing with you further :)

Whole caps team couldn't score in the playoffs. Kind of a Trotz thing evidently. Maybe if Green got more ice time they could :)


Green was dead last in Caps playoff points amongst D, so that argument doesn't fly.

scored more than every other dman aside from Carlson with less minutes so I don't know what the point of your argument is. We wanted a RH defensemen that can score and we got one. The way capitals manage their team has nothing to do with how we manage ours
Seriously ppl stop going to other teams forums it's not helpful scouting reports. Imagine what people would have thought of flippula


You don't need to go to forums to see what is obvious.  Green sucks at D, he was a 3rd pairing D-man on the Caps, he was awful against the Rangers, he had two points in 14 games in the playoffs...he had two power play points in the last 2.5 months of the season and his play in general was pretty miserable towards the latter part of the season.  


I just don't see why everyone sees this as an absolute slam dunk deal.
