#2556832 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 15 December 2014 - 04:27 AM

This roster is one top D and power forward short of being a real contender in the playoffs. Not sure if we have enough assets to make the deals we need.

#2533297 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 29 July 2014 - 01:42 PM

I take it that all our roster spots are taken once DD signs up and if Alfie returns we have a full 23 man roster.


Do we think we will invite any FA's to camp to try and beat out anyone? And if so who would you like to see get


an invite for a try out. Dustin Penner is still unsigned, would give us a bit more size up front, and also id take a 


shot at Devon Setoguchi, fast right handed shot, cant work out why he is still unsigned

if Kenny doesn't pick up a fwd then i think we can pencil in Mantha and id love to see the kid get a fair crack at it.

i still have a feeling that Kenny has a trade up his sleeve  :withstupid:

#2522524 Redwings great R/H D men.............?

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 02 June 2014 - 12:53 PM

So we are looking for that great r/h shot from the blueline but who have we actually had that has been a standout in that role during the past 20 years. Rafalski was a high point scorer and maybe the only one that stands out. Cheli was at the end of his career and not putting up big numbers during his stint on the Wings blueline. So maybe as far back as Murph in the late 90's as the last one. So why is it all of a sudden a top situation for the brass to address? 

I say we go with the best available D man we can get and wait for Sproul and Marchenko to come thru. Please dont waste money on a guy who's only produced once so far in his NHL stint.

If we could sign Hayes, draft Brendan Perlini, and swing a trade for the Caps' Tom Wilson, we'd have a crazy-bright future, up front and on the back end and in net (Mrazek).

use to watch Brendan's dad Fred play over here in the UK in the 90's, if he finds the net like his dad he'll be ok.

Mantha will be on the roster before xmas, I'd give him a spot on Pav and Z's line getting him to learn what it takes from

the best 2 guys he could. They'll make him see what it takes to be the best and that its a 2 way game in Detroit. 

The kid is just what this team needs a 6'5" 200lb+ scoring winger. Babs didn't travel all the way to Val'd or for nothing,

and from all accounts he liked what he saw.

#2519700 Will Mantha join GR after the QMJHL playoffs?

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 08 May 2014 - 01:44 AM

2 more goals last night although Val d'or drops the game in OT.


thats 22 goals in 21 playoff games, think we may have something here

#2518321 Red Wings expect changes for 2014 - 2015

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 30 April 2014 - 06:00 AM

In an ideal world Ericsson would be on the 3rd pair with Marchenko and we pick up a top guy to pair with Dekeyeser.

#2517531 Fedor Malykhin

rumor of Salavet Yulaev Ufa putting in an offer to Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg for his services. I get the feeling this might be to see if the Redwings are 


really interested in him. From what i've seen of him he is worth a gamble on a 1 year contract, solid 2 way player who has represented Russia this year 


and looks like making the worlds roster too.



ps, yes that is him in my profile pic #98

#2517208 ECQF - Game 5 - Red Wings at Bruins - 3:00 PM EST

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 26 April 2014 - 05:07 PM

well that was a playoff series none of us expected us to win and 95% of us never thought we'd get into. They kids got us in and 


after their success in the Calder last year this series has taught them what its all about in the big boys playoffs. It'll stand them in


good stead for the future. We have probably seen Alfie's last game in the NHL tonight and also at least 4 as Redwings. 


The Bruins showed they are a good side, and also that big body's with skill usually prevail. I can't fault our guys for their effort


just the better side won out. Roll on next year and hopefully some fresh faces with some size joining the roster.
