Love it!

Nice!! We might actually be a better team next year!

This might be getting a little heated. Just know I don't hate any of you guys.


That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.


In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)

Sweet. 4.9 is fair. He is a better C than Fil. Aflie is better than Cleary. 

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

I just posted this in the locked thread..was Weiss the captain in Florida? Did we just swipe 2 captains from 2 new divisional rivals?

Great signing!


And he probably took over a million dollars less to sign with us over the Blues. :)

Great signing, finally Kenny does something right. Crow has been eaten... but only a bit ;)

Now, the only question is what they do with Brunner and if they can make room for him.

WOW, Holland gets Weiss for less than Clarkson went for! 


Great signing for a 2nd line center that gets between 55 and 60 points a season!


And contradictory to the freak out posts, it leaves room for plenty of moves and RFA signings!

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock
