    Vanek Signs 1yr. $3M

    I see this as a GOOD signing. I think it almost makes it certain that Zadina is in the lineup from day 1 with Vanek as a mentor & both being Czech. And I don't know about anyone else, but I am all for having another 20 goal scorer in the lineup. I still think a trade or two will be coming to make more room, and Zetterberg isn't a guarantee to be back with his back issues.

    McCollum back

    Not understanding why they trade for McCollum, when they could have just re-signed Pasquale &/or Paterson. It's not like either stunk it up last year. Pasquale held down the fort in Grand Rapids while Coreau was up with the Wings & his numbers weren't bad all year (15-9-2; 2.43 GAA; .919 SP). And Paterson is YOUNG & still led Toledo with a 34-13-1 record, 2.28 GAA, and a .918 SP. Pasquale was quickly snatched up by Edmonton & my guess is that Paterson gets grabbed as well. Would like to see the Wings at least change their mind & sign Paterson back.

    Smith/Hronek Assigned to Grand Rapids

    Hronek was a joy to watch here in Saginaw this season!

    Welcome to v4.0 of the LetsGoWings.com Forums!

    Looks good! Good job. Although I do miss the sports links that used to be at the top.
  5. http://www.mlive.com/sports/2016/08/chris_osgood_joins_jimmy_devel.html Things looking up here for the Saginaw Spirit (OHL) with the additions to the ownership group! We already had great ownership, this just makes it so much better with actual "hockey people" on board!

    Wings Sign G Jared Coreau

    So they just signed Eddie Pasquale as well... so is it Coreau & Paterson in GR & Pasquale in Toledo, or Coreau & Pasquale in Grand Rapids & Paterson in Toledo? I thought I saw that they had no intention of bringing back McCollum. Fun tidbit, both Pasquale & Paterson are former studs from the Saginaw Spirit (OHL).

    Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

    As far as the people wondering if he will be back in the OHL this coming season, no, this past season was his overage year. He goes pro this coming year, be it in Grand Rapids or Toledo. I'd think it would be Grand Rapids from everything I have read.

    Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

    I watched him his entire OHL career here in Saginaw (until he was traded half way through the season last year, which is typical in the OHL), and Wings fans should be excited. I'd argue he's a little tougher version of Abdelkader with a better scoring touch. He was always the first one to jump in & defend his teammates. Was a good captain here. Great pick-up!

    1st Round Home Games 1 & 2 Presale

    They are using more than one password - sorry! I had a different one. I did end up getting 2 tickets at $53 each (plus a million bucks in fees & my first born male child), so all is good in my world. I just had to keep trying & waiting for someone who was looking at the tickets to release them. I panicked for nothing.

    1st Round Home Games 1 & 2 Presale

    I had the REAL presale password & 5 minutes after tickets went on sale NOTHING available??? Come on now... EDIT: Let me say that by "nothing" I mean nothing under $75.

    Playoff Lines + Mantha Back to GR

    And they can always call Mantha back up at any time if they need/want to. He's not far away.

    And your NHL All-Star Division Captains are....

    Shouldn't you have to actually BE IN THE NHL to get voted in? I understand that he was playing in Arizona when voting started, and is now back up with Arizona, but he wasn't even playing in the NHL when he got a lot of those votes, he was in the AHL. Time to take this out of the fans hands & let the coaches or even the players decide.

    Kings sign Ehrhoff to 1 year deal

    1 year at $1.5 million, not a bad deal for L.A.

    Gustav Nyquist signed 4-Year Deal $4.75 mill AAV

    We definitely all do miss CapGeek, but most NHL.com articles I see have them referring to www.war-on-ice.com for their contract numbers. Just putting that out there.
