#1996482 Stanley Cup Championship Gear Leaked?

Posted by Drake_Marcus on 08 June 2010 - 09:01 PM

just seeing the top row of shirts and hats makes me sick to my stomach. But then I realized that winning the Cup will only further hurt Chicago's ability to retain their team. Niiiice. Chicago can suck it. With Kane and Toews choking in the finals it's clear that they need their depth to really thrive. It'll be nice to see that depth fall apart this summer!


#1996255 Trade Cleary?

Posted by stevkrause on 08 June 2010 - 12:14 PM

Hell no.

Dan Cleary is exactly what you want in a hockey player. Clears is one of the most versatile guys we have. He is a Jack of All Trades. He can effectively bang and grind on the fourth line, bang grind and score on the 3rd line, create space, bang, score and back check on the 2nd and 1st lines. More versatilve than anyone else we have.

I've seen too many games where the Wings came out flat except for Dan Cleary.

#1995662 Bertuzzi states he will either stay with wings or retire

Yeah, Cleary sucks. He's never scored any clutch goals and can't play in any situations. LET'S TRADE HIM!!!! Good thing he doesn't have a NTC!!!


#1995674 Why Holmstrom

Posted by Carman on 07 June 2010 - 06:37 AM

1. Leino was released in order to free up cap/roster for Franzen's return.
2. Holmstrom is a specialist that is the very best at what he does.
3. He can still score goals, 25 goals for under 2 million is an absolutely great deal.
4. You can not pay too much for a player like Lidstrom, especially when you aren't talking 8-10 million.


Before last year I was in the same boat as you, I didn't think Homer had a place in the top 6 due to his skating ability. But he clearly proved me wrong last year on his way to being the second leading scorer.

Lastly Steve Yzerman over Ken Holland? Damn I've probably replied to a troll. Oh well.


#1995670 Why Holmstrom

Posted by jroach17 on 07 June 2010 - 06:31 AM

In this day and age of big speedy forwards, and great two way players, why in the world would the Wings resign Holmstrom? He is only good for the powerplay, he is a liability on defense, & my grandma can skate faster than him. This was our chance to get younger, faster, bigger with Free agency. We signed Lidstrom, okay fine, still think we paid too much, but I'm okay with it. I'm not okay with the human pylon being resigned. We probably should have kept Leino instead of Holmstrom seeing as how he is playing right now. I'm also starting to think we should have kept Steve Yzerman & let Holland walk too, that was a bad move for the future Holland, you blew it!


#1994802 Bertuzzi states he will either stay with wings or retire

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 05 June 2010 - 11:44 AM

As for Miller and Eaves, with Hudler :puke: coming back and Ritola out of options, there is really only room for one of these guys (if Bertuzzi comes back.) With Holland saying he wants to sign a grinding 4th liner, I dont see how he can sign all these guys. I am fully on board with a #6 defensman, I really hope he just doesn't opt to re-sign Lilja, but who else is out there in the million dollar range? Same with a grinding forward, it'll have to be someone to come in for $1.5M or less...

It's just too bad that either Miller or Eaves might not have a contract here next year, because they both earned it. It makes Draper's cap hit all the more painful.

Eaves with 22 points in 65 games and one of the team's top PK guys, all for 500k this past season. And Miller was no slouch either.


#1994797 Bertuzzi states he will either stay with wings or retire

Posted by LeftWinger on 05 June 2010 - 11:35 AM

Well this is pretty good news. The way I read it is, Bertuzzi either chooses to play a couple more seasons with Detroit for at the most Holmstrom's money OR retire and make nothing...

Considering Helm and Abdelkader, yes they will both get raises, but they will probably only get the minimum required by the CBA, since Abby didn't really earn a contract that pays him a million or more and Helm only made just under $600,000 last season and, as important he is to the future of this team, he didn't do enough to nearly double his salary, so I would expect if not the minimum, no more than $750,000.

#1994103 What are the Pros and Cons of next season?

Posted by Heroes of Hockeytown on 03 June 2010 - 11:14 PM

I'd swap out Zetterberg for Kovalchuk

That would be a terrible exchange. Zetterberg is a premier shutdown, two-way forward in the NHL, who has led the team in playoff scoring the last three seasons, and leads the league in playoff goals scored since the lockout. Kovalchuk is just a guy that can pick a corner. Which is a neat trick, the Wings could use a guy like that, but certainly not at the expense of a player of Hank's caliber.

That trade wouldn't even fly in NHL 2010. You are talking about an older, gritty forward who just busts his ass night in and night out regardless of injuries and get a . In a heartbeat yeah, probably, but be logical. Maltby and Draper have to go and Malts probably will. We would have to eat Drapes' money so may as well get what we can out of that. He won't see much game time regardless. Kovalchuk can't do half the s*** in the defensive zone that Z can do and this is guaranteed without Wings goggles on. Kovie is a great goal scorer but the trade to the Devils did jack for them (See 1st round vs. Philly) I am not saying Stanley Cup next year. I am saying your horrifically poor judgment of a post needs way more edits than a damn 3 year old's take on Tale of Two Cities. Go back to watching Lakers/Celtics, got no more time to waste on senseless posts that rattle off crazy inconsistent blabber from an uneducated hockey mind.



First off, I never said we were going to trade for Backes it was a comparison because both make the same per year in salary. Showing what we COULD get with that overpaid money. Cleary busts his ass off with his slow speed, and often injured frame. Malts needs to go, and Draper could be a 19th forward for all I care. Kovalchuk wouldn't fit a trap scheme well in NJ, but a puck possesion and defensive scheme might work for him (See: Fedorov). We won't win a Stanley Cup until Holland makes major moves. I don't watch basketball... and I know alot more about hockey than you probably being how I've played 15 years and haven't missed a Wings game in 4 years literally, not one.


#1994220 Holmstrom signs 2 year extension

Posted by VM1138 on 04 June 2010 - 09:52 AM

Tanguay is a joke. I can't believe hockey fans actually want him on this team.

I like Bertuzzi, but like many of you if we can find a player that will have more impact for between 2-3 mil, it's a move that has to be made. Tanguay is not that move.

#1994215 please chicago win the stanley cup

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 June 2010 - 09:26 AM

ur no longer a true Wings fan for cheering for chicago


You guys are all saying what I said a few days ago, and I got attacked for it by some of the dumb Hawks lovers on this site.

It's good to see that LGW is back to being a Wings friendly site. No more Hawks obsession. They're our freaking rivals for crying out loud, and their entire fanbase hates the Wings and always roots "Red Wings Suck".

I'm supposed to cheer for them in the Finals just because of one gap-toothed idiot being on the other team? I don't think so.


#1994195 Holmstrom signs 2 year extension

Posted by Mors on 04 June 2010 - 08:41 AM

Really dont understand why people are fixated on signing that ***** Tanguay, aside from being an ex-Avs ******, he made $2.5 million last season and put up 37 points. What a bargain? :rolleyes:
