  1. "What causes this infraction to rise to the level of supplemental discipline is the force to which the hit was delivered..." Just don't hit him as hard next time, Kronner. You silly man, you.
  2. 1. No penalty on the play 2. No injury on the play 3. No history of prior suspensions or fines 4. Skate on the ice at impact, elbow tucked in, primary point of impact just below the head When you look at all the facts, it's pretty clear why they suspended him.
  3. Mr.Beliveau will always have a place in my heart. When my father was dying of lung cancer, my younger brother, whom like my dad is a huge Habs fan, sent a letter to the Canadiens organization requesting words of encouragement. Within a week, he received a letter for my dad, it was a hand written letter by Jean Beliveau wishing him the best, and thanking him for his many years of fandom. I will never forget the look on my dad's face after reading that letter. It truly brought him joy in a very difficult time. R.I.P. Mr.Beliveau
  4. Who said anything about sure things?! I sure didn't. This thread is speculation on future captains. My guess is no better, no worse than yours, or anyone else's. I'm looking 8-10 years down the line. Our prospects with (by far) the most leadership abilities are z-nasty and Larkin. Wether they make it to the nhl or not is another question, but both are believed to be nhl material.
  5. C - Nasty A - Larkin A - DDK Nasty oozes leadership. He's been a C every where he's been. Scouts have already said Larkin is the type of player that will wear a letter in the nhl. DDK is just a hunch cause he's a stud.
  6. Ken Holland: Hello Daniel, I am calling to personally thank you for your many years of great service. You have been an integral part of the Detroit Red Wings since you signed on with us. However, despite earlier promises, I must regretfully inform you that we will not be offering you a contract for the upcoming season. Daniel Cleary: Wow, Kenny… I mean… where did this come from?!? I've devoted the last ten years of my life to the Detroit Red Wings. I left money and term on the table last year in Philly so I could play here with the promise of another contract to come... KH: I know Daniel, and we thank you for that, but based on you performance last year, and how well our prospects played filling in for you and other while the injury bug hit, we feel this is the direction we need to take as a franchise. DC: C’mon man, you know I only played poorly last year because I was injured. There’s still plenty left in the ol’ gas tank. I know I can get back to my old form, and deep down inside, you know it too Kenny! KH: That may be the case, Daniel. However we are simply not in a position where we can afford to bring you back on. I’m sorry. DC: Wow!, what happened to you, man? You use to be cool. KH: What?!? I’m still cool, Daniel. DC: No, you’re not. You've changed man, and not for the better. Loyalty use to mean something to you. I guess it doesn't anymore. KH: Loyalty is very important to me. DC: Whatever, man. You’re all talk. Take your lies and broken promises elsewhere. Talk to you later… KH: Wait! Don’t hang up! Let me see what I can do, Daniel. I’ll prove to you that I’m still cool. I’ll call your agent and see if we can’t work something out right away; perhaps a two-way contract? DC: Two-way contracts aren't cool, man. KH: You’re right, you’re right… I knew that. Definitely not cool. I can do better... just let me talk to your agent, ok? We’ll work something out, don’t worry Daniel. DC: Cool, man. I’ll see you when camp opens. Ciao. KH: Yeah, yeah… Ciao!
  7. I'm guessing he sent Weiss and Tatar to the Jets for Wheeler, plus Nyquist and Miller to the Sharks for Burns. (based solely on who he left out of his lineup)
  8. Really appreciate all the great advice folks. I knew this was the right place to ask, thanks.
  9. Hey guys, as the title would suggest, I’m going to the Joe for the first time this Saturday to watch our boys play the Kings, and I’m super pumped about it! The reason I’m posting is that I'm looking for a little bit of help. I'm a Canadian from northern Ontario, and therefor am not familiar with the area. The wife booked us a hotel in Windsor for the night, and so my question would be: is there an efficient way to get to and from the Joe without driving (I plan on having a few beverages) from Windsor? If not, where would be the best/safest place to park (I’m not a fan of arena parking lots, and am not opposed to taking a cab)? I plan on driving down early Saturday morning, so we should have plenty of time before the game. Are there any attractions or sights worth seeing? Places a diehard Red Wings fan needs to go to? Is the Joe an adequate place to buy RW memorabilia, or is there a better place? I appreciate any and all suggestions. Thanks guys. Ops, feel free to move this thread if its in the wrong place.
  10. Tatar should hire Larionov as his agent.
  11. Mule will not be dealt. Were he to retire before the end of his contract, the Wings would be stuck with a huge penalty--as per the new cba. KH will not chance that.
  12. Correct. I mixed the two up. Burying his contract in the AHL would cost us: cap hit – [ minimum salary + $375,000 ] so $3,000,000 - [ $525,000 + $375,000 ] = $2,100,000 $900,000 isn't much cap relief.
  13. I think both Abby and Tatar have outside chances at making their respected clubs. Both players represented their countries very well at the World Championships in 2011-2012. Abby - 8GP 1G 3A 4P +4 Tatar - 10GP 2G 3A 5P +1
  14. You are mistaken. We actually do get some relief if he is sent down. We'd be on the books for 2/3rds of his contract ($2M out of his $3M), but would be able to divide it up to $1M this year, and $1M next year. So sending Sammy down could free up $2M this year.
  15. While improbable, definately not impossible. Reagrdless, GR is as low as he should be sent down, not Toledo as some have suggested.
