  5. Pre Game Skate

    doors open 1 hour before the game trust me i am a season ticket holder. last year it was an hour and a half before but they changed it till one hour before game time this year.
  6. Pre Game Skate

    be there when the doors open at 6:30. They usually come on the ice around 40 minutes before puck drop give or take. I say get there when the doors open because the first 10 000 fans get red wings hockey cards tonight. Have fun tonight and go wings
  7. Who would you want in our top six?

  8. Who would you want in our top six?

    We have NO F'N CAP ROOM!!!!! We are trying to dump salary to get under the cap. You guys keep starting your threads thinking that Holland will trade Fils or Stu but he won't. Which is why he is a NHL GM and you people thankfully are not.

    Gold for Canada the rest doesn't matter.
  11. Williams & Leino for Ponikarovski

    The trade is not possible becasue we need to shed more then 200K in salary to get under the cap. You would need to find a player who makes a million or under for any trade to be worth while. Making a trade like that would solve nothing. You would still have to trade of cut lebda, meech and may if you made that deal and if my math is correct you still would be over the cap so who do you get rid of then maltby? Miller? Eaves? It makes no sense not trying to be a ****** but numbers are everything in this cap world and these numbers simply don't add up.
  12. Best trade partner(s)?

    I think you are onto something Steve. My spin on it is to trade who we can out of that list for a young stay at home defencemen who has AHL eligibility left. That way he could play in grand rapids not costing us any cap space and be insurance in case of an injuy. The best case scenaro imo.
  13. Salary Chart

    only problem with your scenario is that you have to get rid of 1.9 million dollars worth of salary so maltby or leino has to go in any scenario in order to make the numbers work
