1st the signing of Franzen over Hossa whoch now looks worse and worse.

 

Weiss signing over Filppula. Yes there was time where Filppula looked lost but let's face it at half the player he is better then Weiss. Those 25 goals and 33 assists would have looked nice on the roster last year.

 

He used his last buyout on Tootoo who was to make a little over 1 million this year on the last year of his deal...why?

 

This season its sitting back and watching other teams pick up players. I know the Red Wings aren't really a destination anymore but I wouldn't have bitched even if the Red Wings took a 1 year flyer on Heatley. Which he ended up signing for 1 million with Anaheim.

 

Hell they should have just bit the bullet and brought legwand back.

 

Now there is no promise that even Alfredsson will come back. Also with the talks of trading Tatar for Green I just don't know anymore.

 

I've tried soo hard to support Holland but I just can't anymore.

Filppula was offered roughly the same contract he signed with tampa but for 7 years, he turned it down, went to free agency, circled back to the wings but they had already used up their cap space.

 

Hossa was offered the same contract they gave Franzen, he turned it down so they went with plan b and signed Franzen.

Before one can move forward, they must first take 2 steps back. :taunt:

Holland on looking for a D trade:

 

"I don't know that what's out there is any better than what we got in our system," Holland said. "Players (free agents) would be more experienced, but are they any better than (Ryan) Sproul or (Xavier) Ouellet? We got pretty good kids."

 

THEN LET THEM PLAY YOUf****** IMBECILE!!!


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!)

It's not only that ufa's don't want to sign here anymore,our own prospects lost confidence in his abilities...see under Tatar,Jarnkrok or Almquist lately,both assistant coaches left,Stevie and Nill left,Babcock didn't re-sign yet... must have something with good ole Kenny.

:ranting: ...i was hoping nobody would notice.

 

Imageready doesn't have the best color editing tools so I couldn't make his hand white. The best I could do was grey so I just left it hoping nobody would notice.


Even stranger was that you noticed the black hand but not the fact that they are moving backwards

I noticed it, but assumed you were making an oblique reference regarding the direction of the team after free agency.

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 goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. 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.

Epic, Flashy! Though I also thought the backwards moving was great symbolism.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.
