#2686082 Dan Cleary Gets Training Camp Tryout

Posted by krsmith17 on 18 September 2016 - 09:44 PM

Yes, Cleary did spend some time on IR last season and if he does get another deal and again plays in Grand Rapids, I would expect a similar number of games / production again. He's a great mentor for the kids and they all love him down there. I'd personally like to see him spend another season down there helping out the kids on and off the ice. So, no it's not because he was horrible. It's really pissing me off how much disdain some fans are getting over such a great guy, that gave this organization so much over the years. Sure, he stayed a year or two too long, but is that on him? No.

LeftWinger, what's going on with you? I mean you're at least somewhat bearable during the season, but every offseason it's the same old s*** with you. Nothing but doom and gloom, every post is worse than the previous. Relax man, the season starts soon...

Miller is not getting waived dude. In their eyes he's more valuable than Larkin probably. #cuzblockshots

No one is fit except for Dan Cleary, so we'll have to bring him back.


#2680430 Stamkos to... Tampa

To be fair we don't have a spare Shea Weber lying around as a trade chip.


We don't have 1 let alone a spare


#2680727 Other than Stamkos, which FA forward do you want?

Posted by DickieDunn on 30 June 2016 - 07:23 PM

You would think, realistically, that if Larsson got you Hall, Marchenko would get you RNH.

Larsson was a high pick and still has upside, Marchenko might not even be an average second pairing guy. Edmonton still got hosed though

and a top D

And a coach and maybe a GM

Craig Custance ‏@CraigCustance 24m24 minutes ago

Red Wings still in talks with Darren Helm. If deal can't get done, he's UFA tomorrow.

 

 

That would be the most Red Wing thing possible. Talk about change, bring back Darren Helm and Drew Miller.

It would be ridiculous for Eric Staal to be 31 years old and produce only 39 points and ask for $6 million dollars. 

 

At age 31 our centers were putting up 80 points. Jeez. Hell NO to Staal. 

 

Larkin put up more points than him as a rookie.

Fans should pre-order their Thomas Vanek jersey's right now. 


Our free agent signing is having a healthy Drew Miller back.


#2678415 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 June 2016 - 08:09 PM

I thought Holland would convince Datsyuk to play one more year.

 

I didn't watch the press conferences, but it makes for an interesting off season. If Holland trades Dats contract, will he go after Stamkos, or use the money to re-sign Helm, and give guys like Nyquist, Tatar, Smith, and DeKeyser raises when they become FA's?

 

At this point, I don't think Holland could convince a person coming out of the desert to buy a bottle of water.

I never understood all the love for Jurco, and in continues to baffle me as more time passes.  At first it was just Babcock not utilizing him properly, but then his boy Blashill became the head coach, whom he had a good working relationship with in the AHL.  And then Blashill repeatedly scratched him and played him primarily in the bottom six as well.  Its difficult to imagine two separate head coaches mismanaging the same player in the same way, especially when one of those coaches used him liberally in the AHL.  Jurco has had opportunities in the top six and he has been unable to run with it on any of the chances he was given.  To this, people respond that his opportunities weren't long enough and he needs more time to gel with his linemates.  I can appreciate this to an extent, but at the same time, how long should a head coach attach an anchor to one of his top two lines to bog down the rest of the line with before he cuts the cord?  If Jurco struggles on the top six for five games and we end up losing one or two of those games we're already talking about the difference between making and missing the playoffs.  Should he go 10 games on the top six?  15?  20?  I don't know the correct answer, but I do know that Larkin, Nyquist, Tatar, Abdelkader, even Helm had no problem making the most of the opportunity when they were put alongside Datsyuk or Zetterberg.  The NHL doesn't reward potential.  It rewards performance.  And that's Jurco's biggest issue.  Pulkkinen as well, for that matter.  I would love for him to suddenly click and become the power-forward we've all been hoping for, and I'm not saying that it won't happen yet.  But we can't hold the rest of the team back while we wait for Jurco to develop.

Oh look, Brian Boyle scores another goal when he should have been in the box.
