  1. Athanasiou Rumor

    Nyquist better than AA....really?? Far better? Good Lord what game do you guys watch? A small scoring forward who can't score is better than AA?? OK I guess you'll be content when he walks and you watch Nyquist do nothing again this year.
  2. Athanasiou Rumor

    The problem isn't signing Daley. That was an excellent move. The problem is stockpiling worthless talent on overpaid contracts and never making a trade when needed. AA, Mantha and Larkin are the future. I'm not sure why we need to keep treating them all like garbage and telling them to leave if they don't fit Holland's crappy old world negotiating style. I hope AA signs for 2 years $3Mill per and Holland is forced to trade Sheahan or Nyquist.
  3. Athanasiou Rumor

    AA was one of the only few worth a damn last year. He signs every other idiot but takes a stand on the one guy I like watching. Maybe I can find an AK Bars link to see until Holland leaves.
  4. What Is Your #Hype Level Re: the Red Wings' 2017-18 Season?

    My meter is off until I see AA signed.
  5. Athanasiou Rumor

    Are we waiting for similar talent contract for comparison guidelines or for Kenny to free up salary cap space?
  6. Athanasiou Rumor

    I wouldn't be so worried about the Tatar signing (though I still think he's overpaid) if we had moved Nyquist and signed AA.
  7. Athanasiou Rumor

    We've waited for a "fix" the last decade what makes you think they'll do anything at all. Hell half the guys on this site are happy about the Tatar signing and letting AA walk and remaining stagnant is what KH does best.
  8. Athanasiou Rumor

    Boy who coulda seen this coming. Huge surprise. AA, Mantha and the next generational talent have been treated with the same care as our salary cap. No direction, no focus and no common sense. Kenny goes outta his way to coddle veteran players with marginal talent and shows an inverse relationship to the young talent while still hiding behind the youth movement mantra. Sure AA is lacking leverage in this scenario but is this how we will treat our up and coming talent? Is this what we've become? Maybe watching Sheahan and Abdelkader will somehow become exciting this year. Resign Draper, trade Mantha and Larkin to thoroughly put us all to sleep Kenny. Just make a trade, any trade and your supporters will fall over themselves hoping you get a 10 year extension.
  9. Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    I'll never understand the dysfunctional relationship with the front office towards some of these kids ready to tear it up and the undying loyalty to veteran unproductive guys. Its criminal AA wasn't one of the first priorities and taken care of months ago. I love the Wings but their management makes me want to see them fail to facilitate new management and direction.
  10. Ken Holland contract extension watch

    Everyone felt the same way when Elway became the GM of the Broncos...then we realized having a passionate guy that wants your team to be the best forever is the ultimate person to have in that job. Yzerman would take his fame and this team to new levels, mark my words.
  11. Tatar Re-Signs 4 Years $21.2M ($5.3M AAV)

    Well he's now one of our overpaid staff and with his salary it demands production. if the team's bad its because we are relying on guys like him. Well he's now one of our overpaid staff and with his salary it demands production. if the team's bad its because we are relying on guys like him.

    AA is my favorite player, speed to burn and can finish. He'd be the last thing outside of Mantha I would trade. I'd be cool trading him if I thought Holland had a clue and could actually acquire a top Defenseman. Holland is the last guy I want trading for our future defense. I don't understand why we need derogatory public statements about Mantha a year ago and the mitigation of minutes to our future stars to fit a narrative that young talent must earn their spot. I'm just done with this leadership or lack thereof.
  13. Off-season moves

    Oh I know, Vanek is a pipe dream and I'm almost certain the way things are shaping up AA will somehow be sent down or traded. Just funny when someone actually does perform they are quickly off the team and I'm stuck watching Abdelkader, Helm and Sheahan all night.
  14. Off-season moves

    Kind of funny Vanek and AA were my favorite two Wings to watch last year. They could care less about getting AA done quickly and Vanek likely won't be signed.

    Yeah, great didn't see this coming.
