    Glad we don't need any young dynamic game breaking talent...what a waste.
  2. Athanasiou Rumor

    Maybe thats Kenny's bargaining position. Vanek is no longer here to assist you and we have the scoring juggernauts of Nyquist, Sheahan and Tatar to offset your production.
  3. Athanasiou Rumor

    Next year Mantha and Larkin will be junior guys not worth investing coin on either right? Will everyone quickly bid them adios when they ask for $4Mill each? AA was a bright spot last year constantly in Blashill's dog house due to his defense as a forward and an after thought in negotiations due to Holland's past bad contracts and inability to make a trade. Tatar shouldn't have been signed and Nyquist, Nielsen or Sheahan dealt. If things are tight now what happens next year when Holland's GM skills are on display again with an even worse cap situation? Sorry AA you deserved a better fate both from a coach and from an organization.

    Nice Z lit the light on opening night.

    Season starts no AA, no trade, Holland is so predictable to solve his cap issues.
  6. Athanasiou Rumor

    Hoping we can sign AA sometime this year and any deals made can be done by the next GM. I really want to see no deals where Kenny trades for "top-end" defensive talent.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. What Is Your #Hype Level Re: the Red Wings' 2017-18 Season?

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

    Are we waiting for similar talent contract for comparison guidelines or for Kenny to free up salary cap space?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
