Not liking this game so far. Just feels like it could be one of those big let downs.

Alfie throws it at the net from the side boards when every other Wing was on the same side of the ice as him......WTF?

It really sucks Yzerman is not there.

#2478887 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by DickieDunn on 30 January 2014 - 09:54 AM

Holland won't make any moves as there is too much cap space coming up for the next season. The prospects are proving to be too invaluable to move as well. The Wings need a 1-2 RH D to QB the PP and another RH D in the 3-4 pairing. If you have been watching any games this season the lack of a RH D has been pointed out several times due to the breakouts against the Wings leaving the goalie hung out..


I suppose somebody can comment upon my observations from there but that is the reality of the situation. 



Just seeing Cleary, Samuelsson, Bertuzzi, and Cleary leave will open plenty of cap space. They 13 forwards and 6 7 who are either signed or RFAs going into next year who are not waiver eligible.  That doesn't include Jurco or Glendening.  Sheahan will be on the roster.  Callahan will almost certainly be on the roster.  Ferraro has an outside chance depending on what else they do.  Glendening has almost no chance because he's waiver eligible.  Jurco's status will depend on what they do in free agency.  Almquist is almost certainly gone.  They can sign one free agent forward or make a trade to bring one in, and roll with:


Zetterberg-Datsyuk-UFA/trade target




Callahan, Ferraro reserves



Kindl-Marchenko or another rookie

Lashoff reserve


I'd be happy with that roster.  Arrange them however you want.

I truly believe nothing will happen because all teams will try to rape the Wings, business as usual.  Very little will happen this UFA because Holland will not outbid another team for a player he NEEDS.  So with that, I can only hope that Cleary is NOT re-signed, Bertuzzi is NOT re-signed and Quincey is NOT re-signed.  I hope Alfie retires and then we just go in house with all the kids and start building the next Dynasty.  I just hope one of these kids can be that sniper that Datsyuk yearns for, because he did sign to play 3 more years in hopes to win another Championship and I would hate to waste those years, because he probably will retire after...


The problem is there's not likely to be any players they NEED out there, and even if there are, giving Vanek $40 mil for 6 years just because someone else offer $38 mil over 6 years, or paying a 40 point winger $23 mil over 5 years is kind of stupid.  you're implying that not doing so would be some kind of failure on Holland's part.  It would be a lot smarter to just roll with the kids.

I swear the Florida Panthers must have some kind of devil worshipping ceremony in their locker room before Red Wings games. This is ridiculous. This game should be over.

Good shot, Sammy. You didn't see those two players right in the shooing lane?


Babcock is obsessed with right-handed pointmen. Smith would be better.

Showing some fire and a desire to mix it up for the first time this year.

Too bad it's only after we're getting our asses handed to us.

I really like Darren Elliot doing play by play. He seems more natural and comfortable than when he's doing intermission "look into a Teleprompter and talk to the camera"

All jokes aside, I really don't like our bottom six. It's like, we finally get an awesome top six (and I guess the jury is still out on that, though I do think it'll ultimately become one of the best in the league. Because I say so), and the bottom "bottoms out." mehhhhhh

Red Wings fans have to be the most spoiled fans in all of sport.


This is about as overused of a cliche here as "We like our team".  -1 for you sir.
