    Rumors Thread

    IDK... 32-years-old? I don't see a re-signing happening. From the Red Wings' perspective, he's "old" for the movement we are going with. From his perspective, he probably has three (ish?) more years as a top-2 defenseman, does he want to spend them with a team that's not competing for the Cup? Given the questions about his medical, taking the best offer at 1:30pm would have been best, I think. And if it's medical, do what they did with Mrazek: conditional picks.5 reg games = 310 reg games = 215 reg games = 16 playoff games = 1+210 playoff games = 1+1Just don't get it. SOMETHING is better than nothing.

    Slump started last year when,

    I know it's slow, I know there's not a lot of traffic with the team doing poorly.... but come on. And I'll be honest, shame on me for clicking on a post that didn't have a complete thought in the threat title. I knew it was going to be bad. If it wasn't, you wouldn't have been too ashamed to put it in the title. But, please, don't post stupid stuff. It's wasting people's time who want to engage in actual conversation.

    NHL 2018 Player Ratings

    Should use the term "Beta" loosely; EA churns out the same dang game year over year. Roster update, remove two features, and add one of the features back that was removed last year...

    New arena construction updates

    "The Detroit Downtown Development Authority, the public entity that owns the arena, is expected to collect $726 million in school property tax revenues through 2051. The money will be used to pay off $363 million in public investments in the $862-million arena and the surrounding development district. The DDA and Brownfield Redevelopment Authority were named in the initial suit. A new DDA amendment proposal that council is to vote on June 20 would issue an additional $34.5 million in bonds to support the Pistons' relocation. The estimated cost of the project has increased from $450 million to $862 million. The project is anticipated to be 62% privately funded and 38% publicly funded." That's disgusting. How do you go over budget by 92%?????? Meanwhile, the publicly-funded percentage stayed the same. Bunch of l*b**al BS.

    Mehhh.... all that from a single game? On a player he wasn't even intently scouting? I would want to see some consistent reports before jumping on that one.

    Little Caesars Arena worker dies after 75 ft. fall

    Ha, I worked for Schindler Elevator Corporation, dispatching service mechanics, including for NYC. 30 Rock is one of the properties they have (had?) the contract for service (inlcuding all of Rock Plaza). Had no idea this was from that building.

    You really felt the need to post your own thread on this subject which is discussed for almost 80 pages in the draft thread? I feel like I'm doing a disservice to all by bumping this thread up the list, but I really wanted to call you out on the annoying, petty attention-seeking post. Sorry, ya'll.

    03/28 GDT : at Carolina Hurricanes 4, Red Wings 1

    No... AA is probably sore from that wicked cross check to the lower back! It's a shame AA is getting a bunch of crap for "running over" a goalie when it's clear his skates were perpendicular to the goalie when he get bulldozed by a guy flying down the ice to break it up. I'm with you Leftwinger, they should be going after their own guy.
