    News From Around the NHL

    Totally agree. It's like wrapping your own Christmas presents, and then trying to be surprised when you see what Santa brought you. I don't even know how it got like this, but UFA day used to be holiday worthy, and worth sitting by the TV or radio all day, just to see what deals went down. It's bad enough that fewer big names hit the market than in years past, but to now let negotiations take place before the 1st, just completely kills the excitement of the day.

    2019 Draft

    Cooper Moore sounds like a lesser version of Cholowski. They'll probably have a bobblehead night for him in 3 or 4 years, only to make him a healthy scratch that night.

    2019 Draft

    Once you get past the shock of, "that's not what anyone was expecting", and look into some of these guys, I'm actually really happy with what I'm seeing. Of course, none of that matters if none of them pan out to meet our high expectations.

    2019 Draft

    "He is at the top of the food chain, a t-rex, eats everything and thinks everything is under him", Robert Ohlsson (Coach) 2018 Seriously, how can you not like a guy described like that. Also to note, it seems that he was rated much higher than he was selected. I'm in, Maybe he turns out to be like Holmstrom or Hornquist.

    So now we go to drafting skinny midgets.

    2019 Draft

    We still have 2 picks in this round. There's plenty of room for another Bertuzzi on the roster.

    That all the "experts" had him ranked lower. Some of them had him below 100. I'm not a full believer in the thoughts of most of these "experts".

    Why Whip Z-Pinch?

    Whoa, Whoa, Whoa. Logic doesn't work here at LGW. Save that sorcery for HFBoards and WiiM. We don't need your clear thinking around here.

    Why Whip Z-Pinch?

    Because he hasn't filled everyone's nets with pucks, as promised. Also, because we're not playing for The Cup right now. He was a #6 pick, that should be enough to win The Cup with. He'S LaZy, AnD He sUx. Trade him for future considerations.

    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    Darren Dreger ✔@DarrenDreger The paperwork still has to get done. Provided all of that is managed today, expect the Oilers to introduce Holland as the new GM in the next few days. Holland will have autonomy and Nicholson could take on a bigger role as well. Darren Dreger ✔@DarrenDreger My understanding is, Holland is informing the Ilitch family and the Red Wings today. And as has been speculated all week, the Oilers offer is believed to 5 years at $5 million per. https://twitter.com/tsnryanrishaug/status/1125040188994899969 … This appears to be a done deal. I'm actually a little bit surprised by this.

    Poll: Datsyuk on the team at 41?

    Oops. Yeah, wasn't she like 12 or 13 when he ducked out of here? Has to be getting close to college age. Or to be on the next episode of Fake Agent.

    Yzerman signs Joe Veleno to 3 year entry level contract

    How does he get the option of Grand Rapids? Is it something to do with his "exceptional" status, and his extra year of Juniors? Or am I just confused on how all this s*** works? It could easily be "yes" to both of those questions.

    Poll: Datsyuk on the team at 41?

    His youngest, Sophia, just finished her second year at U of M. His middle daughter, Maria, is finishing her Junior year at BU. And Isabella, his oldest, already graduated from U of M, and is working on her Masters, at USC(?). Maybe it's UCLA, can't quite remember. It's hard to believe that that little girl he had out on the ice with him in '97, is now 25. Amazing how time flies.

    Yzerman signs Joe Veleno to 3 year entry level contract

    So, is Veleno in the same situation as Rasmussen was last year? Either the big club, or Juniors? I'm kind of thinking that he would be better off with a little bit of time in GR this year. Just look at what happened to Rasmussen last year. Too big of a jump into the deep end of the pool, without having any swimming lessons. Just hope that Veleno is a little bit better equipped to handle playing in The NHL.

    Poll: Datsyuk on the team at 41?

    I thought that the master plan, was to have Lidstrom's sons breed with Yzerman's daughters, and make us plenty of "Perfect Red Wings". And just by coincidence, Datsyuk's house, which has been for sale or rent, since Summer of 2015, had it's listing pulled at the end of March. And, it's still fully furnished, so all he has to do is bring a suitcase or two, and unpack.

    Are you Happy with the Second Round?

    Just thought that I'd mention that 5 of those no-named teams have won at least 1 Stanley Cup, with a total of 14 between them. Would also like to add, screw those bunch of jerks. Move them to The Yukon Territories, for all I care.

    Don't worry, it looks like Amazon has us all covered. Looks like they also included some Dashboard Confessional for those that needed it. Big Brother is definitely watching.

    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    Weather permitting... No carts allowed yet. We've had a lot of rain lately, as well as the ground thawing, so there's a lot of very wet areas. I don't golf that often anymore. Having some pretty bad back problems that have been made worse by a knee and hip replacement that put my spine off kilter. I'm a 65 year old man, living in the body of a 95 year old, and the mind of a 15 year old. If I were Old Yeller, I would have been taken out behind the barn, years ago. If you yet a "G", you should get one from an Iginla sweater. Always loved the IBINLA look.

    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    From what I know, Kenny's been on the wagon for a little while now. The last couple of times that I've seen him at Oakland Hills, he's been drinking 7-up. But who knows, maybe he'll be back on the scotch when the course opens.

    That sure took a long time to say basically nothing. Welcome home Stevie. It's good to have you back home.
