#2340562 TooToo - the lovable little Tasmanian Devil

Posted by Konnan511 on 16 January 2013 - 11:15 AM

tootoo is garbage.  hope he gets benched.

Well, he DID have more points and goals than anyone in OUR bottom six last year. Add in the fact he fought a third of what our total was last year, you might be selling him short. So your version of garbage and mine must be different.

Our D is not going to be as bad as everyone thinks. If anything, we will have an average D Corps.

#2338289 Tomas Holmstrom Retires

For a guy who can't skate and slowly unlearned English during his hockey with Detroit, he had one hell of a career.

Fedorov to finally get his standing ovation that he deserves from Red Wing Faithful. The cheers for Vladdy will be deafening.

#2318662 How bad are we if our roster is now finalized?

All I hear is wah wah wah. I'll be smiling in May when we are in the playoffs yet again.

#2314436 Ryan Suter agrees to 13-year, $98-mil deal with Wild

Well Semin is better than Parise and Carle isn't too bad.......

#2314421 Ryan Suter agrees to 13-year, $98-mil deal with Wild

Posted by Konnan511 on 04 July 2012 - 11:21 AM

Time to fire Holland


For bidding more for Suter. You must be kidding. Please tell me you aren't serious.

#2314112 Suter Watch: Decision today, down to Wings/Wild

Posted by Konnan511 on 04 July 2012 - 01:08 AM

So people were pre bashing Holland stating he must sign Suter. Now the Wings are getting bashed for trying everything possible to get Suter and/or Parise?

7mil cap hit for Suter is a bargain, especially given that at the end of his contract I'm guessing the cap will be 100mil+ or close to it. Get er' done Kenny!

#2313588 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by Konnan511 on 03 July 2012 - 12:56 PM

Ya, I don't like Tootoo, especially at 1.9mill. Eaves makes less than this. He ISN'T a good hockey player and is a goon that lives over the line. Not a "wings guy" imo. I don't see him becoming a loved guy in the locker room either. Waste of cap space. This would be one instance where if I were Kenny and had to move a player before the deadline for cap space, I'd trade a recently acquired player.

For someone who isn't a good hockey player, he had more points last season than in any season Eaves has had in the past five years. Tootoo isn't a goon. He can actually play hockey. Everyone ******* about not having a fighter or toughness on this team and we get a guy who is the epitome of that and people ***** because he isn't their favorite knuckle dragger.

Get over it. He makes this team better and harder to play against.

#2312528 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by Konnan511 on 02 July 2012 - 12:44 AM

People's reactions are priceless. We signed 4 players on July first. One guy was coveted by every NHL team and has serious speed and shooting abilities. One guy was heralded as the next big thing for goalies. One guy is one of the best pests in the league and fights and is a heart and soul guy who just put up 30 points and one guy who is a right handed shot and loves to shoot and will put up 20+ goals. All of these guys were all had for less than 10mil and we've upgraded our team toughness, backup goaltending, speed, and scoring. We still have 15mil plus we can spend and that's not even considering trading any of our players or the 7mil extra we get from the soft cap. And we haven't even signed two of Parise, Semin, Suter, traded for Ryan or Nash yet.

We improved our team and aren't done yet and people are already complaining. How spoiled are you brats?

Go Wings! In Kenny I trust!

#2312482 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by Konnan511 on 02 July 2012 - 03:59 AM

I like tough gritty, players, but Tootoo is one of my most hated players in the league. Also, I'd say he was more effective as a fighter and a pest several years ago.

Furthermore, as others have said, it'll be harder now to get Parise or Suter.

All of our signings have zero baring on wether we get Parise or Suter.

I really think he could bring out the best of ABdelkader as well. Having a guy with him who runs around nailing guys and isnt afraid to fight will get Abby more involved and increase team toughness more

See, we can agree on things!

#2311412 i hope we dont panic if suter and parise signs elsewhere

Posted by Konnan511 on 30 June 2012 - 01:40 PM

Fans will panic. Holland and co won't.

#2309877 Blashill to coach Griffins 12-13 season

Posted by Konnan511 on 25 June 2012 - 09:30 PM


I would love to see Larionov or Fetisov but I think they are happy with what they are doing...

Larionov in any coaching role would be magical. One of the smartest people, let alone players, in hockey.

#2309229 Top Swiss-leaguer Brunner to sign with Wings, Babcock has big plans

Posted by Konnan511 on 23 June 2012 - 12:41 PM

We will see how he turns out, but after Grigorenko, Leino, Brunnstrum, etc I will hold off on the excitement and hope until A. He earns a roster spot and B. he establishes an effective role for himself.
It's one thing to tear it up overseas, but it's something else altogether to translate success over in North America, whether as a top line player or a bottom 12 grinder. I would certainly love if he can play even up to Hudler's level, but I won't hold my breath.

Grigs was on the fast track to being an NHL allstar and nearly died and was never suppose to walk let alone play hockey. If you're shocked that he wasn't as good as everyone pre crash made him out to be then you need to re-evaluate things.

Leino was one of the main cogs that nearly landed Philly a cup. He's done alright. Brunnstrom's a flop, so I'll give you that.

Posted by Konnan511 on 22 June 2012 - 08:46 PM

He's a righty. Shoots first. Is amazingly fast. Zero risk, massively high reward. Anyone who doesn't like this move is bat crap crazy.
