  2. no not Mike, Dreger and LeBrun tweeting, but I can't paste for some reason
  3. "Reporter" asks, " Would you be willing to trade the 1st or maybe a player like Mantha? " 'source' says, " Look, if someone wants to blow us away with an offer then of course I would consider it, I'm not doing my job otherwise. " "Reporter" prints, " Wings open to moving 1st/Mantha. " Fans use whatever scrap of evidence to support their personal feelings and the sun sets.
  4. I make about one post a year and I have to waste it on this garbage.... BOOO, these reporters are reporting on the news and not on whatever their opinion might be, BOOO. This is being played like politics and a perceived lack of interest in bashing management is being equated to condoning said moves. These are not the same things, everyone is taking mental shortcuts to the conclusion and bypassing the idea that media SHOULD report ONLY the facts. People are so quick to forget that because it is sports, it is journalism too, adding opinion taints that. Let bloggers speculate, speculation is what you people seem to desire, but is also the reason these speculators don't have credentials, because they only want those credentials to make their asinine opinions seem more valid when they are arguing in their own comments section. Nobody knows what a good signing is until the season is over and we all have 20/20 hindsight, your intuition is not proof of any fact and your anger is not a catalyst for change. All I read when I see this garbage is a lot of spoiled fans who even after making the playoffs for 23 years in a row and winning more Stanley Cups than any team in a quarter century, think they could do better and sit around bitterly whining about a few depth moves being made. Grow up Hockeytown! 29 other teams lose the cup or on said free agent, I can't wait for the article to come out saying player X didn't want to come to Detroit because of the entitled fans, well I guess I could buy a website, call myself a blogger, write the opinion myself, use anonymous sources and then ***** because no one takes me serious.
  5. ...didn't the 8th seed Kings win last year, I bet you saw that coming too. I try to explain this all the time to the glass half empty crowd, no one here cares that you don't believe and no one thinks you are intelligent for predicting 1 out of 30 teams won't win. We enjoy watching our team, so you know what to do with your predictions.... For lack of a negative button, my response is to write out NEGATIVE.
  6. Ryder and a 3rd to MTL for Cole per TSN.
  7. The new CBA cuts operating costs and fixing travel cuts costs. This is textbook positioning for expansion. The imbalance created will be offset by two new teams out west. Two more teams equals more money for the NHL. Most people who want Detroit in the West want it for selfish reasons, I want them in the East for selfish reasons. The question is, 'What does the team want?' Atleast the realignment is considered positive by the Wings. If that means you see less games in person and the team wins more games in general, so be it.
  8. I live in Florida and want this for the same reason, so it comes down to your population of 1.2 million and mine of 19.3 million. Make some people happy.
  9. You are only + anything because there is no negative, see user blueadams if you want people's opinion of your opinions.
  10. By comparison, Abdelkader is 1 year older, 1 cup wiser, 1 inch taller, 111 more hits last year and 28 pounds heavier. Abdelkader's first full season with Detroit was the 70+ game season. The previous season where he had 6 points in 50 games was split with Grand Rapids, where he had 24 points in 33 games, compared to Emmerton who managed 37 points in 76 games with Grand Rapids that same season. I like Emmerton, I just don't think he is better than alot of options we have currently and coming up in the system.
  11. Yep, Fehr locked out the union and started cancelling games as a negotiation tactic. Yep, Fehr presided over multiple lockouts and worked for the the same law firm behind every major sport lockout of the last few years. Yep, Fehr ate your brother after his paper boat floated into the sewer. Yep, Fehr sank the Titanic. Yep, I am out of ideas, you seem good at assigning blame to people who don't deserve it, why don't you finish.
  12. Like the AHL, where he never had a positive season (+/-) or the OHL, where on the top line playing PP and SH he could not make it past 6 games/season in the playoffs, going -2, -4 and -1 in 3 seasons which included him being traded 2 months after being named captain in '07. I'm excited to see what draft pick we can pull in for him, as it is now, that 5th round pick has a better chance of playing for Detroit than Emmerton. Andersson, in addition to scoring 50+ points last season with the Griffins (Emmerton never broke 40), is taller, stronger, younger and Swedish.
  13. Every article I have read on this throw the lockout into the equation, even though it was never mentioned by any party. Also, I was unaware that Paul Bunyun was a insult, in this article they remove the quote of the lady asking Santa if "that was necessary". This is from the country that just arrested someone last month because he was in public saying Santa is not real. Fired from an acting job is one thing, arrested for telling the truth is another.
  14. Like it has been said, if you blame Fehr you are wrong. According to Bettman it has been 1000's of players and their reps killing the NHL for years. According to facts, the league has increased revenue to record amounts, inspite of 1 lawyer and 30 owners mismanagement. That said, with this round of give-backs from the players to make even more money for the owners, why would they fire Bettman? He has done everything needed to short-change players and turn teams into turnkey investments. The owners will keep him and some players still make more than he does, so I voted yes.
  15. Tatar is better than Emmerton, like others have stated, if it was not a risk to send him to the minors Emmerton would already be there, ala Ritola. Ritola, btw, career gp43 g4 a5 p9 and as of November 9, 2011 no longer plays in the NHL compared to... Emmerton career gp73 g7 a4 p14, meaning it takes Emmerton 5.2 game/point vs Ritola 4.7 game/point. Tootoo is on 3.8 game/point, playing his entire career with Nashville, a team that produced more goals than Detroit 1 time (06-07) in his career. Goals Det Nash 03-04 255 216 05-06 301 253 06-07* 252 266 07-08 252 227 08-09 289 207 09-10 223 217 10-11 257 213 11-12 239 232 Emmerton makes a good black ace. Tootoo is a good 4th liner and a top of the league agitator. Not to mention at all the differences in each others hitting game.
