Man i feel bad for blackhawk fans. I know this sounds like sarcasm but im serious. It would suck if the Wings just won the cup and then the very next month they traded or lost to free agency alot of the guys that made an impact and got them to the cup finals. They lost alot of good young talent in a very short period of time after that same young talent won them a stanley cup. I wouldnt say the Hawks are doomed for years to come, but they are ganna have to start building from within again. I know it would suck pretty bad to say goodbye to what a 5th of your team?

Holland: Nothing from Wings for next 2-3 days.

That is just fine by me.

For those wondering why Holland isn't doing anything today:

The #1 reason why your players are overpaid is because you signed them on July 1st.

this Kovy suspense is killing me

Not soon enough, I'm afraid.

Am I missing anybody?

That is just fine by me.

Colin Fraser ... Cam Barker earlier because of this mess they put themselves into.

Likely a few more, up to and including their big star ... Stanley Cup.

Kim Johnsson, John Madden and maybe they can hide Crystal Ball Huet.

And they still have to ink Hjalmarsson, Hendry and Niemi. They are still in cap hell, with over a third of their roster already turned over.

From the official Ducks Twitter feed:

Murray on Bobby Ryan: "We increased our offer yesterday on Bobby Ryan, went to five years at $5 million a year."

:blink:

How can he turn that down?

Here is some quick counts for the hawks losses.

Just from my count that is 82 regular season goals, 23 playoff goals (or 30 percent of their offense in their cup run)

YOWZA!!!! That is pretty rough.

Johan Hedberg to New Jersey was just reported

Any confirmation on this one? I left for a while and don't feel like scrolling through the TSN frenzy.

Nothing on their tracker list.

It was confirmed by Hedberg's agent.

And the Wings went from Pres trophy contender to almost out of the playoffs, remember the jump to fifth took one hell of a run at the end!

Apparently he wants 3 years and the Ducks want 4 or 5 according to Bob McKenzie. That's the only issue.

Bruins grab J. Reich

no terms released other than 1 year

Injuries happen to every team every year.

Look at the goal totals from last season as compared to the year before, to say injuries are the only reason the Wings dropped in the standings imo is being a little to rosy!

Plus when was the last time Franzen played a full season? You have to plan on him missing a few months each year, at least that is the pattern he is developing.

About which part?

Sure the Wings were 3rd in man games lost, and there was a stretch where they were starting AHLers but again they are not the first nor only team to deal with injuries.
