On a positive note the Griffins are stacked lol

I wish Holland was like McGrath, that way our 4th line would be the Hanson Brothers :ninja:

Only time Holland would pick them up is now, right in their prime beer belly years. They get matching 5 year $4M/yr no trade/move clauses too

In all fairness, Emmerton is out because of andersson and Glendening.

That article calls tootoo a defenseman multiple times... i expected more out of mlive lol

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

According to Ted Kulfan, Eaves found out he had been waived from reporters. If true that really sucks.


If true, then I'm ashamed to be. a wings fan. These are people they're dealing with. Once Kenny made the decision, he should have called eaves before filing the paperwork or whatever formality puts it into motion.

If it is true it makes you wonder what the hell is going on with management now.  This situation is stupid enough but to have a guy find out form the media that he's going on waivers?
 
It's like the wheels are coming off.

I think its due to Mr. I's disappearance (this was a big story in the Freep a couple of weeks ago). Yes, I know it's his age and health, but the press is picking up on the leadership vacuum. Perhaps Chris isn't picking up the slack, and Holland has free reign now for the first time ever.

This just pisses me off.  Really?????? How about being a man, Holland, and bring him up to your office and let him know in private before everyone else.  That's about as classless as it gets.  :censored:  :censored:  :censored:

Don't like it too, but this little article puts this mess into perspective. 

 

http://www.wingingit...did-we-get-here

 

Sums up my opinion but it nevertheless sucks. It hink Eaves is one of the players you need in a salarycap era with a very good value of effort per dollar. Waiving such a guy speaks volumes about the Wings situation at the moment.

I wonder if Ottawa would consider picking him up for nothing to help stabilize the bottom 6. A redo of sorts...I always liked the guy.

It was such overpayment for Tootoo.  I have no idea why Holland would give him 3 years at that price. 

 Sam reason he signed a useless 35 yr old Samuelsson 3 yrs @3M and no knees Cleary for 1.75 M when we already had too many forwards.

Quincy and Miller are the ones that should go, that clears 5.35M and they have -10 and -9 respectively.

So what is this?  Are we moving the Red Wings out to GR while the new place is being built?

I wouldn't go to town on Martin really. Holland was the one signing the contracts and most likely went to Martin and said, "Can you make it work?" I imagine capologist have the role of fixing problems that others have made or try and prevent them from happening. I guess I just want to say that Martins probably the guy there to find loopholes for Holland. He's not the one putting us in horrible positions.

I'm totally bummed.  I love the guy's courage and his willingness to work.  I hope he clears and can go to GR.  That would mean I'd get to see him next week. 

 

So why the hell can't we kick Cleary's sorry ass to the curb?  He should have NEVER changed his mind, and gone to Philly instead.  He wouldn't be missed, believe me.

 

Cleary is on the team because Babcock lobbied hard for him to be there. I agree that it should have been Cleary on the waiver wire.

 

That said, it's almost certain that Cleary will be a regular scratch unless he begins playing better. Babcock likely wanted him back because of his performance in the playoffs, but he has been useless so far in this season. Worse than useless, in fact, because he's using up a roster spot that would be far better suited to other players. I watched a video of the 2009 playoffs recently; he was very fleet of foot back then. Now he's horribly slow. Sad.

 

That said, he's absolutely not going to be re-signed if he continues playing as he has been.


 

 

This! :clap:

This is exactly how I see the things...

 

And you're wrong, because by all indications Ilitch rarely meddled in affairs of management.

 

 Sam reason he signed a useless 35 yr old Samuelsson 3 yrs @3M and no knees Cleary for 1.75 M when we already had too many forwards.

Quincy and Miller are the ones that should go, that clears 5.35M and they have -10 and -9 respectively.

 

 

I see three significant problems with your post, all of them clearly the result of you not checking your facts:

 

1) Samuelsson was signed for two years, not three.

2) The team didn't have too many forwards at the time.

3) You spelled Quincey's name wrong. If you're going to criticize the guy, at least know his name first.

 

And so on.

Way to go make an already soft and old team even softer and older.

 

Best of luck to Eaves always like the guy, can easily see a team like the TorontoMapleLeafs or BuffaloSabres claiming him.

Sucks for Eaves, but this was always going to happen once we re-signed Miller.

 

So, if he clears, we'll have Eaves, Emmerton and Tootoo in Grand Rapids......Grand Rapids who are already overflowing in prospects, who had to send Frk to Toledo because there was no room for him on the roster.......now a couple more guys are going to have to make room.

 

So even our prospects in the AHL can't get a game because of Kenny's poor roster management and unwillingness to cut ties.

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
