Considering it's my birthday, I'm estatic about this news. Come on DRW, lets get back to the top of the Western Conference.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Hope you (we) get everything you (we) wished for.

Maybe we should have sent D-Mac and Kocur with our delegations to cut off that pesky Lemieux.

Whether we sign either of them or not, you can't say they're not trying, and that's all we can ask at this point.

Honestly, I think our slight decline (for lack of a better word) will work in our favor. There's more ice time and room for these players to be a huge part of the team now, and everyone knows Detroit treats their players well. It just depends really on what these guys are looking for and whether we can give it to them or not.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Maybe we should also send Carrie Millbank and Karen Newman with Holland and Alyonka Larionov with Illitch and Chelios.


Lol that's too funny.

from ansar


Wings owner Mike Ilitch originally planned on going to Madison to meet with Ryan Suter but Suter not meeting face to face with teams.

So Ilitch will join contingent that includes Ken Holland Mike Babcock to meet with Parise and agents near Toronto.

On tsn they said Suter has requested teams don;t come meet him in person, he's fine doing it over the phone.

They should make him an offer he cannot refuse.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

According to Pierre Lebrun the Wings are no longer meeting with Parise face to face, though they are still very interested.

I am watching the NHL network and they just stated that the Wings aren't flying out to pursue Parise in person, still going to pitch an offer but no face to face! Didn't say why however. That pisses me off.

do you think this is because presentation not needed as Parise is already set for Detroit?

Last minute change.... Ken Holland will not meet personally with Zach Parise... not a good sign. Word has it that Pittsburgh wants Parise playing with Crosby. Crosby is friends with Parise and called him personally.

As of Sunday, 1:35pm.

I sure as hell hope that is the reason!!!!! I don't understand why they would back out last minute unless they knew they had a 80% + chance of signing him.

Not as worried about loosing Parise as I am about Suter, we NEED Suter, getting Parise would be nice, but there are other options available.

Why does it piss you off? Parise said he doesn't want to meet face to face with suitors. Don't get mad just to get mad.

Well considering I didn't know/hear that Parise didn't want to meet face to face is the reason I was pissed. Didn't make sense why Wings and co. wouldn't meet up with him. With that being said then I am not mad seeing as it wasn't the wings choice.

Just heard on NHL Network, apparently no teams are visiting Parise. Do not want a situation like last year with Brad Richards. Also, Parise wants $12-million signing bonus, as well as $12-million the first year of deal.
I hate People who have a signature.

Zach Parise wants $24 million in signing bonus! This guy is becoming way over priced.
THAT'S 63 PERCENT OF THE PHOENIX COYOTES CURRENT PAYROLL!!!

I'd rather target defenseman Ryan Suter and Jason Garrison.

I'd stay in the Parise bidding just to jack up the price for Pittsburgh.
