#2550134 CBJ's Jack Johnson files for bankruptcy

Posted by Jesusberg on 20 November 2014 - 11:28 AM

He's an idiot? Really?

I can't speak for anyone else, but the last person in this world I'd expect to screw me over financially is my mother. It's one thing to be awful with money, but what they did with his money goes beyond being financially irresponsible - they milked the **** out of him. They treated him like a cash cow and ran his debt into the ground. The amount they spent/lost has more to do with their greed and taking advantage of a situation than it does with making smart decisions. Disgusting on their part.

As much as I despise him as a player, he is afterall, human.  And a very caring and giving human at that! Very Cool.

I am a Cleary fan, even with the knowledge that he must step aside soon for the younger kids.  In the meanwhile, he brings veteran presence to the locker room, and intangibles like heart and desire.  He's contributing.  Bravo, Daniel.



Cleary came into the league as a 1st round pick by Chicago...He thought he'd have it easy because he was a top player at ever other level of the game prior to the NHL.


He found out the hard way how one can be on the outside - looking in...Lucky for him that Holland saw some redeeming quality, and gave him a chance...This experience is what Cleary can pass along to the youngsters within the Wings organization.

Its nice to have a thread where Cleary isn't being treated like a pile of garbage.


It's awesome when you hear about these guys doing things like this........good guy!

I don't hate Cleary but don't see him keeping his spot on the team after all the injuries heal. But when he does things like this makes me feel better about him wearing the wheel a bit longer.

#2550011 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Posted by kipwinger on 19 November 2014 - 12:58 PM

Weiss is going down to gr for a conditioning stint, still haven't heard if datsyuk good to go.

And we have a game tomorrow, someone's coming up, right?


No.  Weiss still needs to be on the Red Wings roster to do his conditioning assignment.  In order to activate him from IR they need the spot and the cap space, as both will still count against the Wings while he's in GR.  Since they started the season with Datsyuk (and then Franzen) on IR they didn't need to send Nestrasil back down, but now that Weiss is healthy they need his spot.  They'll likely just play with one fewer guy in the press box for the game (or two) that Weiss is in GR.  There really is no big secret here.  Nestrasil waived, and Weiss activated after Nestrasil clears.

That is the weirdest GDT I've ever seen.
Good job.
You can't spell WINGS without WIN.
and you can't spell BLUE JACKETS without LACK T.
I don't know what that means.  I'm just reporting it.

It means they will lose lol
And thank you. I strive to be below average :D

#2548794 Former Wings coach/GM Bryan Murray has stage 4 cancer

"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all." - Dale Carnegie



Bryan Murray will live his passion until he can no longer do it.  I think that he will work in the NHL up until the day he passes.  I also believe in miracles and hope and pray for one of those today.

I'm a cancer survivor myself. I was fortunate to catch mine early, but it still took 2 surgeries and 2 years out of my life. What Murray is facing is something I can't imagine. I would've vacated my job by now if I was him. But he's a stronger man than me. Goodluck to him and his family.

#2548709 Ranking Wings Players by Draft Order

Posted by kliq on 13 November 2014 - 04:08 AM




Weiss - 4th overall :wacko:



I dont see why this is suprising. Weiss was a very good player in juniors, and that skill set did carry over into the NHL. Injuries in your early 30's shouldn't dismiss what you accomplished in your 20's.

Yes, I think DeKeyser going undrafted has a lot to do with him going the college route. College hockey has gotten much more recognition the past few years, largely because of some of the talent that is coming out of the NCAA. Some others that went undrafted from the NCAA in recent years include Ben Lovejoy, Torey Krug, Kevan Miller, Mark Letestu, Trevor Van Riemsdyk, Luke Glendening, Mark Arcobello, Christian Folin, Mike Weaver, Andy Green, Stephen Gionta, Cory Conacher, Cam Talbot, Matt Read, Matt, Irwin, J.T. Brown, Andrej Sustr, Tyler Bozak and Chris Tanev. Others a few years back include Curtis Glencross, Teddy Purcell, Ben Scrivens, Ryan Carter, Rene Bourque, Dan Boyle, Martin St. Louis, Chris Kunitz, Jason Garisson and Jay Beagle. There are going to be more and more of these guys coming from the NCAA and the biggest name out there right now is Kenney Morrison, a guy I think could help out the Wings on the back end...
