    Not a free agent. One more year.

    I think if we signed Myers, to then go after Trouba means someone is being dealt. I don't see Jensen as a guy looking to be a #7 anywhere, and I think Hronek is going to clearly move past him in the near future. And I'm pretty certain none of them are fans of playing on their offside, are they? (maybe Hronek is?)

    Pretty sure he meant if he makes it to free agency, And that's probably a big if.

    I’m 99% confident Trouba is in a Red Wings uniform after next season.

    Why? Has he publically said anything or posted a childhood picture in DRW pajamas?

    I hope we do nothing this off-season. Myers will be 29 at the start of next season and will be out of his prime when we are seriously looking at competing for a cup. There is nothing that says the Red Wings need to spend over the cap every year. Trouba in 2020 would be exactly what this team should be hoping for.

    Agree, I think he winds up either home in Detroit, Or possibly Tampa or Florida to be close to his fiancee Kelly Tyson.

    No? But there has been tons of speculation of him either coming home to Detroit or possibly one of the Florida teams to be near his fiancee.

    99% sure based on ‘speculation’ for something to occur in over a year? Florida is definitely on his radar and I’m not saying Detroit isn’t a possibility just that statement is a bit off unless you either personally know him or something publically was released.

    At the time that Trouba is a UFA, won't his fiancee be graduating?

    When we send on the cap, we get free assets (which will cost only money). Then we can sell other assets, like Tatar, for futures. It helps on the big picture.

    What comes to Trouba... how can he say "no" to Steve Yzerman?

    No one says "no" to him. ;)

    My Sister know's his Mother Kristy Trouba, So yeah i do hear information that the ordinary citizen wouldn't hear. And my Nephew runs a bar in Auburn Hills that Trouba frequents and they talk.

    Not sure? Can't remember when Kelly graduates. Just that she wants to be a doctor. Not sure where though. That could have a lot of influence where he signs as well.

    I think we should definitely sign Oliwer Kaski from Finnish Liiga to our system.

    Kaski played today first time for Team Finland, at Euro Hockey Tour and was one of team's best players on his National team debut.

    Oliwer Kaski at eliteprospects.com

    Guy s huge 6'3 right-hand shot late-bloomer and really started shining at this season. He is 23-year old and I think he is better than Libor Sulak was at Pelicans. At least he has some defence in him, but is really shining offensively.

    Kaski also has experince from NCAA, we was two years at Western Michigan. Should know our hoods already...

    Here's some highlights
    scores 2+0
    Otteluseuranta | Pelicans - TPS 18.1.2019 | Liiga
    scores 2+1
    Otteluseuranta | Sport - Pelicans 23.1.2019 | Liiga
    scores 2+0
    Otteluseuranta | SaiPa - Pelicans 25.1.2019 | Liiga
    scores 2+1
    Otteluseuranta | Pelicans - Tappara 2.2.2019 | Liiga

    He has scored 9+7 =16 points on his last 8 games. That's huge for a defenceman at Liiga level.
