Who's on the tradeblock?

Which of our top 9 skaters gets moved? Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Franzen - not going to go anywhere until they retire Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan - Lifers by every account so far unless they get greedy A...


The Wings are going to be stacked!

We're already seeing how effective the young guns can be at times. Now in the WJC Mantha is tearing it up. Mitch Callahan is having a lot of success this year in the AHL, here's to hoping it...


Happy Christmas!!

I know we have one more game before the roster freeze on Monday, but I wanted to share some fun with all of you Swede lovers. This is Stan Boreson and Doug Setterberg doing their crazy renditions...


New Lines

It's a conversation running rampant in the Quick Hits thread, but I wanted to bring it out to the open for it's own thread. Ansar KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNN!!! reported today on twitter that...


Lines? What Lines? What? You forgot your *^#($)#($*^&*# lines again?

So we've added Daniel Cleary back into the the fold. Babcock now has to pick from 2,485,493 forwards to make up his lines for the season. So why don't we do it for him? Let's start by...


What Happens Next May Determine The Difference Between A Good Season And A Great Season

Wow! The excitement, the flurry, the stomach-gnawing waiting, and anticipation of yesterday was as thrilling as ever. "Are the rumors true?" "Did we really sign him?" "WHAT???? He went...


Are we going to be ok with this lineup?

It seems that if the Red Wings don't land a free agent 2nd line Center, our lineup will look something like this: FORWARDSHenrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Justin Abdelkader...


Rosterbation Lineup Post

Sign Vinny. Rumor is he's looking for ~$5M. There's talk he wants only 1 year so he can re-sign with TBL next year. Sign Horton. He said recently he's playing the market. Buy out Colaiacovo...


Money is NOT the problem

There will be at least 50 posts this off season of rosterbation. We've already had 2 or 3. There have been countless debates about Barbasol from Winnipeg or The Who Hearer from Boston and a...


Conn Smythe Watch

Who's going to win the Conn Smythe Trophy this year? Could it be someone who doesn't even make the finals?? Jimmy Howard - His play has been amazing. He's played in 26 straight games dating back...


We're coming into the homestretch -- Updated 4/26

**I'm going to keep this updated...italics for correct picks, and strikethrough for incorrect** So let's look at the rest of the schedule for Detroit, Columbus, Dallas, Phoenix, and Minnesota: D...


Let's play a math game: Winning 1 Cup in 6 years vs Being a low seed playoff team

I saw a couple years ago a comprehensive analysis done that showed mathematically why a team would be better off being competitive year in and year out, even if they didn't win it all, rather than...

Sheahan Called up

Riley Sheahan might get his chance to prove he's ready for the NHL level next season. Might mean Zetterberg is out again...


Believe in the Core -- The Future of the Forwards

I wrote a piece last week of what our defensive core would look like next year and the year after with (and without) the Danny Dekeyser signing. He was signed so, if Kindl is kept this offseason,...


The Defense of the Future!!!

I've been wanting to write this piece for a while, but I haven't thought it all out, until now with all the Dan DeKeyser talk. The Red Wings currently have 9 defensemen signed through the end of...


Trades for Ian White

With Colaiacovo coming back this coming weekend (assumed), I think it's time we cut Ian White loose. He wants to play, he deserves to play somewhere if not here. So how about Florida? Red Wings...


Griffin's Tryouts

Twice in the past 12 months the Red Wings have lost a key player to injury, and it took that injury to see how valuable they are to the lineup. Last year, Ericsson. This year,...

Does Pierre LeBrun even watch these games???

who in their right mind would place Niklas Kronwall as a Norris Trophy Candidate at this point of the season? jeez....


#1 Defenseman

As most on WIIM know, I am a big supporter of Jonathan Ericsson. Last year, he took major strides towards being recognized as the lock-down defender we all hoped for. This season he's continued...


When will the ship blow up?

I've been thinking about this for a while. Ok, so maybe just the 6 days I spent on a mini-vacation with my wife and (now) 2 kids. When will the Red Wings management finally decided to bite the...


What if...

We signed Weber to a $12M / 1yr contract and we won the Cup....and then he left? We lose 4 draft picks. But we won the cup. Worth it?


Is Shea Weber worth four 1st rd picks?

With Weber being an RFA, we all can pretty much agree that it will take more than $8.4M to sign him away from Nashville. In doing just that, if Nashville lets him walk, the team that signs him...


What's more important to address?

With the UFAs left, it might be in the Red Wings best interest to address their offense this offseason and wait until next season to bring in a top tier defenseman. There are too many questions...


Rosterbation...because it feels so good!

Open thread to post your rosters. Please note the following: Trades - Who is traded away for whom FA Signings - How long of a contract


Moving on as fast as we can

Ok, so the All-American Boys screwed the All-American HockeyTown. That's ok, we don't need them. Why? Because we have Pavel "Dangle" Datsyuk and Nicklas "Hitman" Kronwall. But our lineup isn't...


Draft is what?

So Kendall Marshall is the pick for the Suns. An athletic floor general with excellent vision and well above average passing ability. While he's not a scoring machine, he's a high percentage...


Shanahan didn't make the hockey hall of fame first ballot??? wow...just wow...

Yandle on the market?

According to ESPN, the Red Wings are interested (who wouldn't be???), but why the hell would Phoenix move him a year after signing him????

Underrated Pitchers!

King Felix and Jason Vargas make the list of most underrated pitchers as voted by 293 major league players. 2 former Mariners were also named.



There's been a large debate running on a number of different posts about Kyle Quincey and whether he should be retained. JJ has made some good points (like usual) about why he thinks Holland will...
