    Neither of them were 2nd line centers.

    Oh no! He doesn't like Hillary? Well that clears it up. Yep. He's definitely a Nazi. The helmet proves it. Cancel Greiss. Seriously. If he did anything egregious, he would have been disciplined by the league. If he was the political opposite of Kaepernick, Yzerman wouldn't have signed him. Why would he want the headache? You're witch hunting.

    2021 Draft

    1. So they're fixing the lottery after the Wings get screwed multiple years in a row. That figures. 2. Why don't they just let the bottom 3 finishers be part of the lottery? You can't move more than 2 spots back and teams wont feel the need to tank. The 4th pick on would then be in reverse order of finish. And no one gets a pick they don't deserve

    My point from the beginning was, and continues to be, that you're reaching. Your point from the beginning was to turn it into a political discussion. I'm not defending or supporting anything. I'm not trying to make this a political discussion. I have stated that I don't believe that Greiss's helmet has anything to do with politics. I don't think a font difference is there or that it's deliberate in any way or has anything to do with political extremism. I am not aware of anything he has done or said that is deserving of the treatment he has received. The whole thing is ridiculous and I'm done with discussing it.

    Never going to come close to getting that for Mantha.

    Hes about as effective as Mantha right now.

    Apples and oranges. Kaepernick knelt for the National Anthem and publicly criticized his country. Greiss just liked some social media posts. Totally the same thing lol. 1. Still speculating. 2. Nope. Still think you're reaching. 3. More speculation. 4. Yep. You, Greiss, and his artist are the only 3 people in the world who know. That club sounds exclusive. 5. Those are subjective terms and generally way over exaggerated. 6. Not excusing or humoring anything because Greiss' helmet has nothing to do with any of that. 7. I am aware what SS stands for on a Chevy. That's the point. Even if your point is valid (not buying it) we don't know what words, or even what language is represented. It could mean lots of things.

    1. The team deliberately cut ties with Mrazek. They aren't going to re--sign him in free agency. You were all over that trade. You know this. 2. So a player can be traded and then re-signed then right? Why does the time in between matter? 3. If something quacks, waddles, and has feathers and webbed feet, I guess it's speculation to call it a duck then? Seriously. All of AA, Smith, and Mrazek were being benched or demoted before they were traded. They had all been on the hot seat for awhile leading up to their eventual trades. The writing was on the wall for all 3. You don't re-sign players that you traded just to get rid of. 4. Jensen was a 3rd pair dman, was he not? The team had guys to fill that role, did it not? 5. Teams aren't going to re-sign Bernier if they brought him in because of an injury or to bolster their tandem. If their starter is under contract, and healthy, why would they need to re-sign Bernier? 6.Teams often acquire players at the TDL to upgrade their team just for the playoffs. They don't keep that roster for the following season. 7. I don't think any team acquiring Bernier is doing so to make him a starter long term. A contender would need a starter far better than Bernier and I'm not so sure Bernier would want to stay on as a back up if he has an opportunity as a starter somewhere else. 8. Detroit may not be his only opportunity. But if Bernier is looking to be a starter, and the Wings are looking for a cheap one on a short deal, they would be a good fit. Why would this change just because they traded him right before his contract ran out?

    1. No need to dismantle an argument that hasn't been proven. 2. It was painted by someone else, who's to say it was deliberate or instructed by Greiss to do it. 3. You're jumping to the conclusion that it was deliberate on Greiss part. It's entirely possible he didn't notice, or at least not right away. And even if he noticed, he didn't think anything of it. I wouldnt have. 4. So they'll let you put SS on it then? 5. What views are those exactly? 6. Some people have a warped sense of humor. I wouldnt find it funny personally, but then I don't find most vulgar comedians funny. Doesn't make him a nazi. 7. And yet they're forcing Greiss to change his views. Sounds like cancel culture to me. Oh no. The font is different on the SS. What could this mean?

    Entirely fine. But silencing someone like Greiss who hasn't said anything racist or anti-semitic doesn't make the new government any better than the old one. Banning individual freedom is wrong regardless of whether the government is right or left. Let Greiss be.

    1. If the source of the argument lacks any credibility, its entirely appropriate to "disparage the messenger". 2. I see no difference in font. 3. Even if there was, do you really think the team or the league would allow it? 4. It's not in the lightning bolt style font of the schutzstaffel either. 5. He was never going to play on the National Team because of a lack of agreement between the NHL and the IOC. It had nothing to do with politics, but created the perfect opportunity to play political games by the far left German government. 6. Liking comments or posts by American Conservatives does not make him a right wing extremist. Someone's been watching too much MSNBC. 7. The PC and cancel culture in the US is tame compared to Europe. It doesn't surprise me at all that he would be pressured to apologize for something that didn't fit their political narrative. The more things change...

    Never said he shouldn't be traded. I would. Just pointing out that he wouldnt have to be protected as he would be an UFA at the time of the expansion draft whether he is traded or not.

    The expansion draft is before free agency starts. He would be signed afterward.

    2021 Season

    Filppula leaves via free agency. Replaced with Stephen Weiss. Weiss bought out. Brad Richards signed to replace Weiss. Sucked and then retired. Nielsen brought in to replace Richards. Nielsen goes downhill fast. Filppula brought back to help stop the decline. Circle of Life

    Mantha or AA - Which Player is Lazier?

    Different flaws. Mantha is just lazy. AA just basically refused to play a complete game and was incorrigible. The former is a bad trait, the latter is a bad attitude.

    In Detroit's case, they need a competent, reasonably priced starter on a short term deal. There may not be a whole lot of options in free agency besides Bernier. Bernier presumably wants to be a starter again. He's not a franchise type goalie. He may not have very many other options than Detroit. Ordinarily, it would be unlikely. But if Detroit and Bernier make sense for each other, I don't see why the fact that the Wings traded him should make it implausible. Would we be saying that Bernier is unlikley on July 1st if he hadn't already played for them?
  24. Neomaxizoomdweebie

    Ok. Where to start. 1. Goalies and skaters are apples and oranges. Using them in the same analogy is silly. And skaters aren't "starters". 2. Teams carry 12-14 forwards and 7-8 defenseman. But only 2 goalies. Therefore they are more likely to have the roster room to retain an acquired skater than an acquired goalie. An acquired goalie is more likely to be let go into free agency. 3. There are more skaters available in free agency than starting goalies. Therefore the team that has traded away a goalie is going to have fewer options to replace them, increasing the odds they will re-sign them. 4. Vanek was traded and re-signed lol. Had Mike Green not been injured in 2018, he likely would have been traded at the TDL and then re-signed as a free agent. 5. Mrazek, Smith, and AA were never going to be re-signed under any circumstances and you know it. 6. Jensen was a 3rd pair dman who the team could easily have replaced from within. Can you say that about Bernier? 7. Nyquist had better opportunities elsewhere. If Bernier wants to be a starter. Detroit might be his only option.

    Ok. If Bernier was traded, it would be to a playoff team. Presumably, said playoff team would already have at least one good goaltender or they wouldn't be a playoff team. If they wanted to acquire Bernier, it would be either. because of an injury or to bolster their goalie depth for the playoffs. Either way, that playoff team would have no reason to retain Bernier after the playoffs, making him a free agent. If Bernier is a free agent and Yzerman needs a starting goalie, then he could re-sign him as it might be Bernier's best option to get the contract he wants and have the best chance at being a starter.
