"Part of what influences the Wings as they prepare for this coming season is knowing they’ll have three young players pushing for spots in 2014-15, when Tomas Jurco, Riley Sheahan and Landon Ferraro are all expected to be ready for the NHL"

This is what makes me ok with not getting vinyl or making a big move.

Pretty much.  Holland is obsessed with old geysers who aren't that good anymore.  Did Bertuzzi or Samuelsson even play last season?  Why are they being given another chance to get injured?   

 

I remember Cleary playing, because we all made countless jokes about him throughout the year, but he actually played well in the playoffs.  But still, its time to be fully committed to a youth movement.  We'd have enough veterans with Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Kronwall to have a balanced lineup with experience and youth.


 

He moves like he's 44.  Ric Flair is in better shape than him.  

Flair can take a bump and style and profile better than Clears as well.

 

 

I'd buy a Cleary jersey if he boarded somebody and went "WOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo!!!"

:lol:

Holy Shnikies I just spit my beer all over my computer.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

If we can get Brunner for 2.5 mil and there's guys like Tyler Bozak looking for 8 years @ 4.5... well I just hope we sign Brunner first

Kinda wanted to see Colaiacovo stay for a full season. Makes me sick that they will bring Cleary back for 3 years at 3 mil. No wonder he wont get a top 6 player he's too buys wasting money on f*cking Cleary. Holland's an idiot.

You do know that you can only have six bottom six forwards right? You need two lines that can put the puck in the net, EVERY NIGHT. We have 3 legitimate top 6 forwards right now. Having 15 forwards signed is pretty useless when only 3 or 4 can score a goal on a regular basis.

He's not that stupid....right?!

Cleary's knees won't last 3 years Kenny.

An acquaintance of mine created a Dan Cleary Drinking Game, one of the rules state that you must finish your drink whenever Dan Cleary scores a goal.

 

Through the grapevine Dan Cleary somehow heard about this game and sent all of them glasses and autographed photos that said, "Drink up".

There is the possibility that Sammy is still claiming injury. Injured players can't be bought out.

Colaiacovo is a reasonable buyout. With DeKeyser ready for a full season, Kindl set with a 4 year deal, and Lashoff proving to be a reasonable 7th D, Cola is a logical buyout candidate.

If he really gives Cleary $3 million for another 3 seasons, I'll have to agree.

...it is so unfortunate when the "woe is this team" or "Holland sucks" comments outweigh the good ones.

 

I mean, this horrible, god-awfully managed team was one game away from the WCF.  God we suck and so does Holland. Glad to know we can gripe just as loudly and as obnoxiously as other fans of other teams in the league.  Way to go Wings Fans.

Yes, because the signings Holland made had so much to do with that.

lashoff is AHL garbage.  detroit would be better off if he never wore the winged wheel again. 

 

plus, there's no reason to buy out cola unless you...you know...actually need cap space to sign a UFA.  and if that's the case, buy out samuelsson for the love of god.

Agreed. Wishing injury to a Red Wing ranks right up there on the classless list too.

Signing an ailing and injury prone cleary to a 3 year deal is INSANE. I understand maybe 1 year but this is nuts - especially if Sammy can't be bought out. Its one or the other in my books. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Chicago underplayed and we overplayed, simple as that. They did win the cup after all. At least other teams are trying to make changes. Holland isn't going to make any changes, other than letting Flipulla leave for nothing (just like Hudler). The Wings roster is massive right now. Paying two players 3 million a season is idiotic when you have 14 forwards already. Why not pay one player 6 million! And guess what, that one player might actually SCORE a GOAL.

Maybe because he knew signing players wasn't going to make a difference?  Maybe he wanted to give the kids a chance?  Maybe he didn't have the go-ahead to trade away assets for players like Iginla, Murray, Morrow, Jagr, Clowe, etc.     ...that all worked out in the end anyway, huh?

 

I understand the frustration behind the "HE DOESN'T DO ANYTHING" mentality... but we have a team that consistently makes the playoffs and doesn't draft high.   WTF DO YOU WANT?! 

 

oh right... We Want The Cup.

3M for Cleary is too much.

If we're not going to overplay players, lets be consistent.

But seriously... WTF is the story with Samuelsson?
