And now for something completely different…Red Wings officially sign Jared Coreau

If ever you needed a reminder that the Red Wings were not only completely committed to their youth movement this year, but are working toward a younger, bigger roster all the way around...

Here's the Wings' press release:

RED WINGS SIGN FREE AGENT GOALTENDER JARED COREAU

… NMU Goalie is Second College Standout to Sign With Detroit This Week …

Detroit, MI...The Detroit Red Wings today announced that free agent goaltender Jared Coreau has signed a three-year entry level contract with the team. In accordance with club policy, additional terms of the deal will not be disclosed.

Coreau, 21, started all 38 games for Northern Michigan University (CCHA) this year and finished with a 2.70 goals against average, a .919 save percentage and a 15-19-4 record.  Coreau becomes the second collegiate player to sign with the Red Wings in the past week, joining defenseman Danny Dekeyser from Western Michigan University.

Hmm, standing pat with all these “high” prices, yet we still have some dead weight on the team.  Would’ve been nice to get some “high” prices for our unlikely re-signs.

Shero had the balls to move Staal, KH has a hording problem.

Kulfan’s latest headline in DN: It’s a quiet deadline day for Wings, but they’re happy with their team

He wouldn’t dare tease Kenny, would he?

McCollum will get extended and will end up spending some time in Toledo… Jake Paterson can’t play in the AHL until 2014-2015 season unless drafting rules have changed with the new CBA although he was drafted under the last CBA.

If ever you needed a reminder that the Red Wings were not only completely committed to their youth movement this year

Signed:
Bertuzzi, 38
Samuelsson, 36
Huskins, 33

Went after:
Bouwmeester, 29
Jagr, 41

Kept instead of dealing for picks or prospects:
Cleary, 34
White, 28
Filppul, 29

Signed:
DeKeyser (to maybe play in Detroit this year?)
Coreau (to play in GR for a few years)

Recalled (only when the older guys got injured, to be sent down if the older guys get healthy):
Lashoff
Andersson
Nyquist/Tatar

That’s your “committment to youth”, huh?

Yeah, I have trouble having it called “commitment to youth” when injuries forced the Wings into playing the young guys.

If they were truly commited to youth then they would’ve, at the very least, made some room for more youth to actually play.  I can believe that Lashoff might play ahead of Colaiacovo or White, but I don’t believe for a second that there’s anyone on in Grand Rapids (or from Grand Rapids but currently called up) who will take Cleary’s spot.

Maybe you’ll remember him in four years when he’s waived in favour of having Nicolai Khabibulin as the backup.

PREEEEEACH.

They WERE NOT COMMITTED TO A YOUTH MOVEMENT.  Injuries forced their hand.

Yeah, I’m not sure why Holland wouldn’t trade prospects or picks when he will not let anyone under the age of 25 play in Detroit. Really, apparently what he needs to do is release all the prospects he thinks are good then trade picks for them after they perform decently for another team.

I’m somewhat disgusted he didn’t even try to get anything for players who will not be playing for the Wings next year. And the youth movement where the definite top 6 amazing talented prospect gets like 9 minutes a night.

The devil you know is better than the devil you don’t.

There were only a couple players available who would have made any sort of “difference” for the Wings , and even someone like bouwmeester, who’s contract forces Kenny to make other deals to fit him in under the cap next year, would not change the outcome in this years playoffs ( maybe a first round victory). I’m glad Kenny didn’t make a deal and trade away young talent or another 1st rnd pick.

I wish he had stayed quiet at last years deadline instead of trading a first in this years draft. Quincy made ZERO difference in the playoffs. That pick could turn out to be a top 5 choice this year.

In the offseason I think the team buys out several individuals, and lets at least 1 other accept a $5 million deal from some other dope of a GM.

This team is in transition , but is in better shape by not making short sighted deadline deals that won’t really make a difference.

Let the flaming begin.

I’ve said this in another thread I believe, but not doing something to hurt your team isn’t the same thing as doing something to help your team.  By that logic a monkey could have done Kenny’s job today just as well as he did.  Sure the monkey flung some poo around at people, but he didn’t make a bad trade…..so good job, monkey.

Gabby was traded to the Blue Jackets for, let’s be honest, not very much.  Kenny couldn’t have come up with two middle-of-the-road players (or say a White or a Fil and a youngling) and a 6th round pick for a sniper to play on the wing with Datsyuk?

Looks like the game is blacked out on Center Ice. Anyone else outside of Michigan having trouble finding it on CI?

The last time we played in PHX it was blacked out for me here in New Mexico.

The saying that comes to mind when I see this is: “if you’re not moving forward, you’re moving backwards.”  And I agree with it whole heartedly

That was because it’s local and they can’t broadcast over local rights, but I’m in Ohio and it’s a Detroit/PHO game.

This BLOWS.  F Center Ice.  Missed the Avs game, got to watch us get beat by the sharks and Chicago.. waiting to get that taste out of my mouth.

You’d think it was local. I’m apparently close enough to get blacked out, but I’m not close enough to PHX to pick up their channel without having to pay for another fancy sports package.
