#2623235 Red Wings Sign D Robbie Russo

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 17 August 2015 - 08:22 AM

With 7 one way D in Detroit, and now 11 D in Grand Rapids it sure seems like some deal is on the cards whichever way you look at it. I know some will be going down to Toledo, but it bodes well for the future. I believe we have 5 rh on the D in GRs so I really think Blash will won't one of those in Detroit to go with Greens rh shot. But who ?

The Detroit Red Wings were among the teams interested in unrestricted free agent defenseman Johnny Oduya.

According to two separate sources, the Red Wings reached out to Oduya last week, but the veteran blueliner appears set on returning to the Chicago Blackhawks.


Meanwhile, Wings GM Ken Holland is believed to be exploring the trade market for a second- or third-line forward.

He could go after one of the remaining unrestricted free agent forwards, if he can sign one at an affordable rate.


taken from the TFP, if this is the case youve gotta believe Kenny has something else up his sleeve that may make

us all sit up and take note.

If a deal is in the pipeline for bringing in a #1/2 D you can bet your house O or Marchy will be in that deal. The day Big E and Q are our 3rd pairing is the day we'll be a legit contender, until then it is what it is.

Try and move up the draft to get Hanifin,Werenski or Provorov would be a good move.

Larkin looks a very smooth skating 200' 2 way centre, havent seen much of him but am taking in todays Slovenia game and so far he's been on against Kopitar's line for most of the first period.

#2593002 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

For this set of players to hit the 100pt Mark I would say it's been a very successful regular season. If we get to round 2 then I think we have punched way above our weight.

The D will have a major overhaul this off season wether we get into the playoffs or not. I foresee at least 3 changes on the blue line for next season and we will ship out 2 of the current D corps.

I think because of Howard's $5.2m contract the vast majority of posters expect him to play lights out every game. Deep down we all know that ain't gonna be the case but it's the too frequent times he does have poor games that gets to the fan base. 5 goals on 22 shots is bad enough against an elite team but to give that effort versus the Coyotes is hard to take. It's not Howard's fault he got paid the money he has that lies elsewhere but it has put a lot of pressure on him to be an elite net minder and his talent isn't at that level.
The plus side of this game is although it was brutal in the result and goals conceded we came out of it with a point which puts us 3 games clear of Boston with ten to play.
