#2194174 Wings sign D Mike Commodore to 1-year, $1m contract

Posted by Reds4Life on 01 July 2011 - 02:07 PM


I guess Holland started drinking again.

Wings need top4 defenseman, with Ericsson being the 5th one and Kindl and Smith playing for the 6/7th spot. Commodore is slow, washed-up player.

WTF is going on in Detroit today. This is absolutely USELESS signing. It brings nothing to the team.

Top6 forward and top4 defenseman are needed. Not this crap.

Every team is making waves and Holland is DOING NOTHING!!!!

I have never been more disappointed in my life! Who is left on D? Barker, babchuk, Kaberle....

Holland BETTER have something going on because Lidstrom will miss the playoffs for the first time in his career with hat LITTLE Holland has done today....

Draft sucked and so far July 1 has sucked...I hope that if Holland continues this type of day, you all realize he needs to be fired!

About the only thing now to make up for this total lack of..well, ANYTHING on this day (when he said they are going to be MAJOR players on July 1st quote unquote) is trade Hudler and somehow land Richards or Stamkos...

Best move Kenny has made this off-season.

#2193068 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by gcom007 on 30 June 2011 - 11:05 PM

That's why players have agents. I'm sure Ericsson's agent told him to wait until the end of the year to sign, and he'd make more money.

Trust me, give it 2 weeks, and this will look like a good deal.

No way.

And I'm not even one of the Holland-bashing, superstar-free-agent-signing (in my armchair) types. This has got bad deal written all over it for this organization. Again, I've historically been a Holland supporter and have rarely if ever outright bashed him, but this is as bad of a deal as he's ever made.

Literally for the very first time I am starting to wonder if Holland is slipping as a GM for this club. He's obviously a smart guy who has had a ton of success, but perhaps he's getting to a point where the history is clouding up his decision making somewhat.

This is just a flat-out bad deal unless Ericsson turns up his game a whole lot. He hasn't been able to do so since his initial break with the team, but I've never put much stock in the GR kids performances when they're just up here filling in. The pressure they face as fill-ins is profoundly different than the pressure they face being up here every day and being a part of the machine that's expected to perform a certain way. Ericsson has struggled a great deal with consistency and his mental game is a total mess. I'm not saying he's a horrible player and doesn't deserve a chance, but for $3.25 million?!?

How utterly flabbergasted must Jimmy Howard be right now?

The guy created his own fair share of problems leading to his struggles this past regular season, but he also had a lot of help from the likes of Ericsson. Meanwhile, Howard signs a 2-year deal for $2.25 million after a Calder-quality rookie year, some playoff struggles and some regular season struggles. He follows it up with an outstanding playoff performance.

Then Big E who's struggled basically his entire NHL career since arriving as a regular on the team signs a 3 year deal making a million more bucks a year!?!?

Howard's a team guy; he's not about to make it an issue, but you better believe that this pisses him right off.

#2192130 Ehrhoff's rights traded to NYI, then traded to Buffalo

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 June 2011 - 08:20 PM

Overrated as of right now, sure...Still better then Wiz.

He was money in the first two rounds until he seperated his shoulder against San Jose.

First, he was never better than ordinary, and second, we don't need a guy coming off a separated shoulder.

He doesn't give us anything we don't already have, while Wiz does. Wiz is a right handed shot, and is physical and gritty. Ehroff is a poor man's Kronwall.

That's the important thing in all this.

Erhoff is better then Wiz, and it's not even close really.

But everyone, let's get Wiz because he's had one good year and supplies grit!

He was surrounded by a ton of talent in Vancouver. He's overrated as hell. Quit kidding yourself.

#2190593 Panthers Acquire Tomas Kopecky's Rights

Posted by Doc Holliday on 27 June 2011 - 09:27 PM

Seriously, it's as if the Hawks hired Tallon to be hired by the Panthers (as if they had any credibility as a franchise to begin with) so they could unload all of their crap contracts and overrated players.

f*** you, Tallon.

#2189375 Habs shopping Wisniewksi's rights + for a 2nd rounder

Posted by Matt on 24 June 2011 - 10:55 PM

This is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.

If this were to happen, and I give it a 1% chance. I would demand Holland retires immediately.

Ugh, I wouldn't make that deal even if there was a contract in place.

Bottom line, he is from here. If the kid wants to play for the Wings he will have his chance to play for us. If he wants money more than that, would theyf****** be able to convince him to sign before the UFA anyways? When you are talking about a UFA, unless that guy is going to be the most coveted player at the position why would you give up a second rounder?

The only way I see a trade like this happening is if Montreal grants Detroit permission to speak with Wisniewski's agent prior to July 1st (think Marian Hossa in 2009, though Detroit didn't trade him prior). If they have a deal in place and Detroit doesn't want to run the risk of another club offering bigger money and term clouding things you make that deal. That's it.

The moves made today now makes Chicago a potential suitor (another tour there? meh), and the Montreal beat writer that first mentioned the Habs were shopping his rights replied to me via Twitter that he's heard on the draft floor that the Wild were interested in trading for Wisniewski's rights as well.

There are plenty of suitors for Wisniewski -- and all the warm fuzzy "pls home HOME!!!1!" talk means less and less the more years and million(s) you attach to a contract. Make no mistake, if Wisniewski hits the open market I would be shocked if the Wings would have the highest offer on the table for him.

#2187463 July 1st UFA Wish List

Posted by Buppy on 21 June 2011 - 09:15 AM

The cap doesn't work that way. The cap hit is the player's salary prorated to how much of the season has already gone by. If we had only $200K cap space, then the team would have no way of calling up anyone from the AHL throughout most of the season (unless a player went on LTIR, and that means losing a player for ten games and 24 calendar days). This cap mechanic is why the Devils ended up playing with ten forwards in some early games last season while roster players (i.e. Rolston) were injured: they were too close to the cap.

The only way your logic would succeed were if Smith or Tatar to be called up late in the season.

I'm aware of how the cap works. I'm also aware that Smith and Tatar both make under $900K in the NHL. Thus we would need only 5 days to pass without calling anyone up before we could call one of them up for one day. And for every 5 days without a call up we could have one of those guys for a day.

Sure, there's some risk being that close. But it's also a 23 man roster, so we'd need 4 skaters (or a goalie) injured before we even need a call-up. And honestly, what would it really matter if we did have to play a few games here and there with a short roster. Really no different than someone getting hurt during a game.

So, small risk of being slightly handicapped for a meaningless game or 3 and a better roster while healthy. I'll take that.

#2186443 Wings unlikely to sign Osgood/Draper

Posted by Guest on 17 June 2011 - 09:10 AM

I am under the belief that mindfly created a new name just to come in her and harass us. 83 just simply isn't enough for this taco

as far as i can see, mindfly never said a bad word about anyone on this site. that's one difference between us.
