That plaque put 15 years onto him.  Still cool honor, though.

#2533307 Samuelsson signs new contract....... with Djurgarden.

Posted by 55fan on 29 July 2014 - 03:24 PM

Exactly, HS.  I liked the guy a lot.  Quite frankly, if someone offered me big money to return to an old job that I liked but couldn't do as well as I once did it, and I knew they knew all about my physical state, I'd sure give it a go, especially if I was unemployed and looking for work.

 

I just wish he could have played one more game (not necessarily for us) to hit the 700 mark.

 

Best wishes, Sammy!

Agreed.
 
All shin pad assassin jokes aside, Sammy was a bargain during his first stay here in Detroit.   He had good size, was irritating to play against, and put up good numbers for his salary. 
 
It's just unfortunate that Holland keeps repeating the mistake of bringing back former players, but I hold no ill will for Sammy. 


Well said!

As fun as it is to bash on Sammy, I'll never forget him for starting and finishing this play:

 

 

Also the two opening goals in Game 1 of the 2008 Finals against the Pens.

 

And the hundreds of logo shots.

#2532547 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

Posted by puckloo39 on 19 July 2014 - 11:00 AM

I can only be an improvement to the area, and I am sure the local fans will love it.  I am very happy that I got to attend a few games at the epic and irreplaceable Joe Louis Arena.  I loved every second of the games I attended there and felt privileged as a fan to be there. 

 

Sentiment aside, the Wings deserve the best.  I hope this new arena is just that.

#2529791 Forum Rules Refresher. PLEASE READ

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 03 July 2014 - 02:17 PM

Since it's the offseason and also because of what's been going on since the free agent signings, it's a good time to remind everyone of some of the forum rules. 

 

I've posted a few warnings in threads but wanted to put a reminder where everyone will see it.

 

 

From the forum rules:

 

· DO post a link reference (or cite the TV/radio source) when reporting breaking news, reports, etc. Threads started without this information may be deleted or moved.

 

When posting a trade or signing, please provide a link to a reputable source as confirmation. This time of year people often make fake twitter accounts so make sure the tweet you're linking to is a verified account from a reputable source.

 

 

· DO post constructively. If you can't add anything meaningful to a discussion, don't bother.

 

Before hitting reply, just take a second to think about what impact your post will have on the discussion.  Is it making it better or worse?

 

 

· DON'T post duplicate topics. Before posting your new thread be sure to check the first two pages of the forum to make sure the topic isn't already being discussed. Multiple violations of this rule by a single member is punishable by temporary suspension from the forums.

 

 

· DON'T post false and/or misleading topics. Members caught doing so will be banned IMMEDIATELY with NO chance of reinstatement.

 

The punishment may seem severe but if people start posting fake trade threads, the forum becomes total chaos.  LGW should be a resource for solid hockey talk and information.  

 

 

· DO refrain from using vulgar language. There is a curse/bad word filter currently on the forum and members that purposely attempt to circumvent this filter will be subject to a suspension of account privileges.

 

No alternate spellings.  No blanking some of the letters.  Let the profanity filter do its job.

 

 

· DON'T personally attack other members. This includes name-calling, flame-baiting, etc.. If you can't discuss your point with maturity then don't discuss it. People that violate this rule will be dealt with swiftly.

 

In short, debate the content of someone's argument, not the person themselves.  

 

This includes broad insults against people on this forum and their level of fandom.  Like it or not, complaining about the Red Wings can be on topic.  If you don't like it, don't read it.  If they've clearly violated forum rules, report it to bring it to a moderators attention.  If you really don't like anything a person here has to say, you can put that member on your ignore list.

 

 

 

As I've said before, this forum relies entirely on content generated from its members.  You are all the authors of this forum, so it will only be as good or bad as you make it.  The ultimate goal of all of these rules is not to punish people, but to make LGW a source of lively, respectful, informed discussion. 

 

Thanks!

#2525338 Alfie informs Wings he wants to return

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 23 June 2014 - 05:44 PM

Meh, he was a good signing last season, but the older he gets, the riskier it gets to bring him back.  He's going to be turning 42 years old in December...how many forwards are still effective at that age?  I wouldn't go more than $3 million and even that has plenty of risk....the problem with building a team with all these old players as Holland likes to do, is that old players are more injury prone.  

If gets injured then Mantha or Pulkkinen play. That's doesn't sound like too big a risk to me. Holland's not building a team with "all these old players." We'll actually be a pretty young team next year.

Man, I don't care if the guy's 42, 45, 58 1/2 - it's one less spot for Dan Cleary.
