I think this was the only guy to ever publicly come out and bash the Wings organization after we tried to sign him.

Something like, "those guys need to learn people aren't gonna take discounts to sign with them".

Yup. I hope he enjoyed the extra 500,000k/year or whatever to play with Pheonix and Florida. Now he gets to retire a broken down vet that’s never won anything when he could have come to Detroit in 2006 and contended for a cup or two. 

 

Not to sound too hash.

I get terrified when I see news like this. There's so many reasons why it just absolutely shouldn't happen, and even more given that we've gone after Jovanovski before and it didn't end so well. But I just get terrified that I'll read a headline on July 3rd, "Jovanovski signs 2 year deal with Detroit." It's sad that it feels like it wouldn't be so shocking at this point.

maybe it will drive the price down for other defensman a bit, now that the market is getting a bit more saturated, although this guy might call it a career...

Pretty sure Wisniewski said it.  Not sure about Jovo.

 

In any case, what they said was true.  Kenny is cheap.  


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

Jovanovski said that in 2011 just before signing with Florida.  We haven't made it past the second round in that time.  He wouldn't have been competing for a cup either way. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Wiz said something like: "They don't pay market value" I just remember the "market value" part because people mocked it for a while. 

 

Say what you will about Jovo, but he's a pretty classy guy. I don't think he's the type to say something like that.

it was wiz that said it

 

After James Wisniewski signed a six-year deal worth $5.5 million a season, the Canton native turned around and took a shot at the Wings.

 

Wisniewski told NHL Live, “For me, knowing Detroit’s history they don’t really pay the market value for a defenseman or any player. So I didn’t think that was going to be a fit for myself.”

 

Wings general manager Ken Holland said he didn’t see the quote and then added, “I take that as a real compliment. That’s a tremendous compliment. For us to accomplish what we we’ve accomplished and we don’t pay market value that’s a compliment.”

Yeah, well if that’s the case then you’re right.

 

I still like hockey more when coaches, GMs, and especially players, yap less to the media.

Really wanted Jovo in 2012, now I couldn't want him less. Hope Holland stays away.
