  1. Zetterberg's status in 2 years.

    By now you've all read the article where Z basically admits the contract he signed was a sham to circumvent the cap. Option A) Of course, if he retires, the Wings get stuck with 2 years of the recapture penalty at around $5.5M/year. Option B) If he suffers another back injury, they could 'Pronger' him to LTIR and bury that cap hit like Frazen. I would say this is a BIG "IF" right now since he flat out admitted that everyone involved lied/cheated/stole when it came to fitting this contract in the salary cap. An attempt at LTIR would surely be met with INTENSE scrutiny. No one mentions Option C) BUY OUT. If he's bought out, the Wings can spread the cap hit over 4 years at 2/3s the cost. Disregard this.. As I was researching the content for this post, I learned of the F'd up formula used to calculate the actual buy out payroll and the buy out cap hit.. (Buy out cap hit - explained HERE) Numbers and stuff: Henrik Zetterberg is 38 years old at the date of the buyout Salary remaining: $2,000,000 The buyout ratio is 2/3, which results in a total buyout cost of $1,333,333 There are 2 years remaining on this contract The buyout will be spread out over 4 years The annual buyout cost is $333,333 The buyout cap hit is displayed in the far right column SEASON SALARY INITIAL CAP HIT ACTUAL COST SAVINGS BUYOUT CAP HIT 2019-20 $1,000,000 $6,083,333 $333,333 $666,667 $5,416,666 2020-21 $1,000,000 $6,083,333 $333,333 $666,667 $5,416,666 2021-22 $0 $0 $333,333 -$333,333 $333,333 2022-23 $0 $0 $333,333 -$333,333 $333,333 Wait, there's more: How about Option D) He can be loaned to a team in another league. (SEL, anyone?) Completely legal in regards to the cap and saves us minimum salary + $375K against the cap. So, $650,000 (minimum) + $375,000 - $6,083,333 = $5,076,333 as a cap hit. A meager savings, but a savings nonetheless. OK, feel free to pick this apart and let me know what I may have misinterpreted. http://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/nhl/red-wings/2017/08/21/report-wings-zetterberg-likely-play-seasons/104808640/
  2. Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    No, he wouldn't. He's an RFA - he'd come back as... wait for it... an RFA whose rights belong to Detroit. His contract status doesn't change.
  3. Eddie Olczyk

    Little known fact - he discovered his own cancer because his head is always up his ass.. Get well soon.

    As I re-watched focusing on the background, not the babe - I see the NBC Olympic logo too.. Grrrr. haha
  7. 2017 WCQF: Nashville Predators vs. Chicago Blackhawks

    I stand corrected. I thought someone had captured it during the BH series. Bummer, my Craw(fish) joke is out of place now.

    Oh Jordin... How's that crow tasting, buddy? http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/hockey/blackhawks/ct-jordin-tootoo-blackhawks-predators-notes-spt-0413-20170412-story.html Of course, he then backpedaled on the statement. http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/13/tootoo-clarifies-remarks-about-being-on-right-side-of-hawks-preds-rivalry/

    That right there is a good ol' fashioned Southern Girl, clearly not afraid or grossed out to handle that catfish. I like how she give it a mini-Sobotka twirl by flapping its tail at Craw(fish)ford.
  11. 2017 WCQF: Nashville Predators vs. Chicago Blackhawks

    Have been for years. I think it started during the first few Wings v. Preds playoff series.
  12. 04/09 GDT : NJD vs DRW : 5 PM ET Last Game at Joe Louis Arena

    I wasn't sure if they were boos, but there was DEFINITELY less cheering. This was amazing. Ol Karen's looking and sounding a little rough in HD. His kid had a hockey tourney in AZ. The article I read said he watched the ceremony on his ipad and his kid's team lost.

    Let's Go Jackets! FIRE! **BOOOM** Ok, if it means ending the Penguins' season, I'll happily listen to that damn cannon.
  15. New Injuries For The Last Game(s)

    This just in, KH orders emergency presser: KH: Our deadline acquisitions for the playoffs are our regular players returning from injury, I will not be calling up any Black Aces from GR. HSJ: Sounds great, KH! Can I get a picture? Actual Reporter: Um, KH, the Wings were eliminated from playoff contention weeks ago. KH (flustered): *pointing* Hey look over there, it's a Stanley Cup banner from 2008! *flees the dais in the opposite direction*
