In Topic: Red Wings Target Mike Green

I'd do Tatar, 2nd/3rd, and Kindl (they're going to have to take on some salary to get a higher pick) for Green and a 6th/7th. Seems fair given that Tatar can produce and the Caps will probably get a decent pick out of it.

In Topic: Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Would not be surprised if this deal was made because Holland is working on a trade for a dman. Perhaps a roster player may be on the move? Who knows. Either that or he and Andersson will be keeping the pressbox warm for much of the season rather than having a guy like Jurco do it.

 

 

Except that we all know deep down that's never going to happen.  I was willing to give Holland the benefit of the doubt on the off-season so far, but this signing is just ridiculous.  Screw the "agreement" he had with Cleary last year.  The guy is useless.


In Topic: MDZ close to signing with wings?

I've seen this on several rumor sites, but nothing from known credible sources yet.  It's another case of "oh, this guy was once known for his offense and the Red Wings need a puckmover so... 1 + 1 =" kind of situation.  He might be able to find his game again in this system but I'd rather let one of the kids play unless MDZ comes as a 7th d-man and we trade Kindl.


In Topic: Gretzky maybe part of a Seattle Investors Group

Seattle already have the Sounders, Seahawks and Mariners, plus the proximity to Vancouver so I'm not sure an NHL team would do very well there. Would be interesting to have another team in that area, though.

Okay, I'm going to try to think of the positives:

We get to see what the kids can do.

We'll have ample cap space at the trade deadline if we're still in the playoff mix.
