i got a gut feeling that the Edler, Erhoff talk is a smoke screen and we are after Tyler Myers. Granted he is having a bad year

but he is a young big R/H who can eat up 20+ mins. The big thing is although only 24 he has over 300 games under his belt.

Maybe a change of surroundings is what he needs. What we'd have to give up? But whatever it is it'll be too high for Kenny!

Quincey on our third pairing i have no problem with, his numbers with us are not in a top 4 guys production which is what Kenny signed him for. He has decent numbers everyteam he's been on except the Wings!

Tatar is 23 and Kesler 29 i get the fact that Kesler is a vet and has points on the board but give up Tats for him? I wouldnt and the reason for this is simple, come back to this in 6 years time when Tatar is 29 and compare the stats of both players if Kesler is still playing. Kesler has 2-4 years max at his current level. We are going to get 10+ years from Tomas, and he has only scratched the surface of his abilities.




#2488233 Question about Mantha

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 01 March 2014 - 07:41 AM

Im just thinking of the re-incarnation of the 2 kids and a goat line.  Mantha Pav and Jurco ?!

The whispers we're getting over here in euro land is that the wings have scouts looking at the young Russian's Nikita Tryamkin and Fyodor Malykin. Malykin's name has cropped up before, solid young centre 5'11" 198lb but i think he has 2 years left on his KHL contract. Good skater by all accounts and plays hard. I watched Tryamkin in the world jnrs and he is a big unit, steady in his own end with potential upside to produce on offence. Has played over 70 games in the K and only 19yr old. Both of these guys hail from the same area as Pav, so you never know. Tryamkin hasnt been drafted and i think is still eligible for this year's draft, and have i said he is big, 6'7" 229lb and growing !

Both play for KHL side Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg.

I'm sure Teemu was voted as the most skillfull player at the prospect's camp and that his hockey smarts where well above anyone else there. Lets not forget that he has played for 3 full season's in the Finnish Liiga and he leads the Griffs in points this year in his first full year in the AHL. He has played mens league hockey since he was 18, 4 years,its not like he has spent all those early years in jnr leagues raking the points up. 5'10" maybe on the short side, but he is solid at 200LB. If we compare him to our previous Finns, his Liiga record is better than Filppula and the same as Leino. At the AHL level he has a better output than Leino but is behind Filppula. I would say that Ville and Val are both more of playmakers, but Teemu has good playmaking skills but what sets him apart in my eyes is his scoring ability. We all got to breaking screaming at Flip to shot more, we want have that worry with Teemu.

#2486372 Official 2014 Olympic Hockey Thread (Admin warning #316)

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 23 February 2014 - 09:31 AM

one thing is for certain after this Olyimpics. The redwings will not be persuing the RFA that is PK Subban, think he only played in one game obviously Babs dont rate him !




#2486036 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 21 February 2014 - 07:03 PM

I never said Grabner was available. I'm saying given the choice Id take him over Vanek. He's 4 years younger has a another 2 years on a $3m a year contract which is over $4m a year less than Vanek is on and will want. He is being way miss-used by the Isle's. He has a great set of wheels with elite level speed, plus a good goalscorer in a scoring role. I just feel you'd get more for your $ by getting Grabner in a trade and using him to compliment his skill set than you will by signing Vanek  as a UFA, at the $7m+ he is going to demand. Just my opinion thats all no suggestion thats what the Wings should do. 




#2483048 Sammy Waived

he will go back to Sweden in the off season for sure.

send Quincey to Tampa if they want him, ask for Sustr in return.




#2482375 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 07 February 2014 - 04:07 PM

sorry guys dont know what happened there with the BIG letters, still dont! 

anyway i think Almqvist will be included in any trade that Kenny trys as will Ferraro, we are too stacked at center and im afraid as he is

out of options next year he'll be waived or traded.

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 07 February 2014 - 12:03 PM

before the Olympics start ill just suggest signing AK Bars Kazan top 2 D men (not happening I know) which would help us address the Fwd issue.
 

Yevgeni Medvedev and Ilya Nikulin, offer both 2 year deals. Let Quincey walk, use Smith and Kindl with a roster forward Andersson to get the top scoring forward we need. Split the saved $ with the release of these 4 players and give that to the 2 Russian D's. ie $4'100'000 each year for 2 years.

This will give us a 2 top D that could play from 1-4, so we could go with Kronwall & DeKeyser, Medvedev & Nikulin and Ericsson Lashoff/ Marchenko.

Just a thought, doubt it would happen as the Russian guys have never left their shores, maybe Pav could sweet talk them into coming over.
