  1. He didn't magically shoot up the depth chart. He's being greased with a couple weeks of NHL level pay for signing with Detroit.
  2. Yeah i'd guess it will be pretty darn close to the 912 of Helm. But yeah...... that does work. I'm cool with 200k cap room. 2 extra forwards, 1 extra D. The only time it would cause a problem is if we had 3 forwards injured at the same time without any of them injured enough to do LTIR which is what 10 games? Same thing with defence but it would be 2 at a time could be a problem. And if i understand it correct the problem would go away the second half of the season but i might be wrong. Having no cap room with a roster of 21 is plenty sketchy but I think we'd be ok.
  3. I'm gonna go ahead and call that.... splendid. What the problem is? Holland can sign him to 1 mil base and another 1.5 in bonuses. 500k for 40 games, 500k for 60 games, and another 500k for beating the piss outta Malkin. Trade / waive Meech and Ritola and you're done.

We'll have 2 mil possibly being deffered to next year, but I'm plenty good with that. Take advantage of Lids while he's still here. Go for it. edit... oh, have abs at 800, might be 900
  4. Geez, this looks like it could happen. I think what we need to know is.... does Mitchell qualify for bonuses due to games missed last year? If so, this is very doable. 1 mil salary and whatever required in bonuses.
  5. Ok, found some info. Looks like Pulkk's isn't there. Games start on the 2nd. Below is the link. Looks like you can pay 7 bucks a game and catch a couple online too. http://www.usahockey.com//Template_Usahockey.aspx?NAV=TU_04_01_06&ID=218662
  6. Good point. I think I read it at mlive blog. Maybe I dreamt it. Hmmm. http://blog.mlive.com/snapshots/2010/07/red_wings_prospect_calle_jarnk_1.html not sure if that will work. I'm on phone but says he's playing. And says it starts today. Wonder if it's correct.
  7. I read somewheres about a thing starting I think today in the states. 2 American teams, 1 Swedish, 1 from Finland. Anyone got info? Pullk, JRok, and Almquist attending.
  8. If I had to rank them... I'd rank them... 1. Wings 2. Pecan Pie 3. Bolts 4. Other 27 teams 5. The Habs So, yeah I guess come to think of it, back to the original question, yeah, I guess a little. But I won't watch em, I'll just half hope they do ok.
  9. I'm not a sports fan. Don't know dick about baseball, football, or basketball. I don't know the teams, stats, players, and barely the rules. Superbowl parties are about as far as I stray from hockey. I like the beer involved. I'm not really a hockey fan. I don't watch any games that aren't redwings related. 15 th ranked prospect in a low league game being televised..... Sure. I'm in. Incredibly exciting game 7 Stanley cup final game without the wings..... Hells no. My season ends when the wings does. I have center ice and watch 82 games every regular seaon. That's plenty. It's not even the logo.... It's the 23 that make it up every year. I'll keep tabs on former wings..... Fedorov. Kozzie. Yzerman in a management role.... Sure. But all my rooting is for the wings.
  10. Kabanov Datsyuk Kovalchuk Volchenkov Markov Franzen Zetterberg Axelsson Kronwall Ericsson
  11. yeah I'd like Kabanov... if he's not there Kuznetsov, then McIlerath Feeling the need for some Russian firepower. Can't wait to see who we get. Will certainly have some options at 21.
  12. Kuznetsov
  13. I just had a thought.... maybe Williams doesn't suck. Let me explain. We all agree we have enough high end players to make 2 scoring lines. We would all agree we need a good, energy, able to pot occasionally, defensively responsible, maybe even shutdownish, have someone to fight, 4th line. What's up in the air is what to do with that other line. Do we have / can we get... the offensive depth to make a scoring 3rd line. Do we have the right players to make another effective energy line? Last year we had the 2 scoring lines and 2, for lack of a better word, s*** lines. We had 2 lines that tried not to get scored on and every once in awhile they checked someone. I'm not saying we shouldn't go this way, just wee need the right players. Personally, I like the 3 scoring lines, but obviously you need great caphits. That's why players like Huds at 2.875 and Zherdev for a proposed 2.5 do it for me. I like Drew Miller but I don't want 6 of them on the roster. Anyway, back to Williams. He didn't warrant or earn top 6 minutes. Our 3rd line was a Miller line. He doesn't work on Miller lines. If things would have went different and we woulda ran a Will, Fil and Vill line maybe he ends up not sucking (as much)
  14. Oh... ok. How do you delete a thread? Come on man, I'm bored. Let me talk hockey, propose realistic options, suggest how this team could improve. I got nothing else going on tonight.
  15. Alright, I'll back it off some. But not without repeating he lead the rangers in points the last time he was this side of the water. (as a lazy floater, apparently) I'm not saying he's a top 3 wings forward. What I'm trying to propose is a great top 9. Offense. Depth. You get 9 players, move them around in slots and make a 3 good lines. If you don't think he'd be a good player on Datsyuk's wing then.... I don't know. Last year we had 2 4th lines... not enough offence depth to make 3 scoring lines. Good enough for some teams / fanbases. I like my wings to dominate. That's what I'm used to.
