I can live with that. We have to at least get rid of one sore thumb.

Malone would be a good replacement for Cleary. We all know how much Ken likes reclamation project players.

I don't want him back, considering he'll want a 3 or 4 year deal.

Stevie Y is more of a Idiot Then Holland

 

He fleeced Holland's ass during the Quincey trade.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

He acted as an intermediary for a trade that Holland was wanting to make already. So no, he didn't. He merely inserted himself.

Personally I never disliked the guy, just thought he was a little redundant on this squad.


"The more I know about people - the better I like my dog." - Mark Twain

"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

I never disliked him either.  I just kept hoping he'd produce more offense.  As they point out in that article he's got the skills.  If Tampa is looking at his offensive contribution as a bonus, then they should be very happy with Flip.  He's definitely a solid two-way forward.  

 

It'll be interesting to see how he does there.  With all the time and money they put into Flip, it's still a shame Holland lost him for nothing.

I think most were a little confused as to why he didn't trade his rights in May for a low pick. The only realistic reason could be that Val's agent was being a ****** and Holland was left thinking that the chances of resigning at his price were much higher.

I really question if some of these players know how their agents misrepresent them in aspects like this. Look at the mess with Brunner. It didn't have to be like that, and he probably wouldn't have done it in the same way if it was just him.

It would have made little sense for Holland to trade Filppula in the midst of a playoff push. As it turned out, Filppula was not particularly important in last month of the regular season or the playoffs, but we know that only in hindsight.

 

Furthermore, with the awful season that Filppula was having plus his well-known high salary demands, I doubt that the Wings would have been offered much for him. Perhaps a 2nd, at best. I don't doubt that Yzerman was the only GM willing to give him anything in the area of $5m.

Basically nothing we didn't know. It's nice that he is being appreciated for it.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

I absolutely loved Filapoola, I just wish he would have scored more goals.

But I guess I could say the same thing about D and Z.

D and Z are just a little bit better than Filuppla.

"Hey, this Filapoola guy plays that thing, what's it called again? Oh yeah, defense. So, like, we don't have to play, uh, defense, right? Cuz we have a guy for that. Right? Man, I love Filapoola!" said the Lightning forward.


Don't Toews me, bro!
