#2007386 Versteeg a Leaf

Yeah, because 75% of the 8,000+ members on this board registered within the last year or so.

Wait, that's your board.


Not sure why you think I take bandwagon fans as an insult. I don't care. I'm not one, so why would I? I don't even live in Chicago, so I don't have to deal with them. In fact, I'm on your side with that argument. I hate bandwagon fans as much as you.

Blackhawk nation still in denial.


About what? I'd love to hear this.

There's a great chance that this is all we lose this offseason, which is WAY less than (legit) fans thought just a few weeks ago.

Really, what are we in denial about? I'm interested.

Seems like WIngs fan are grasping for straws now that the offseason isn't going to be nearly as bad for the Hawks as you thought.

So you're replying to the bandwagon fanbase on your message board? That's weird.

I'm not 100% certain that the Blackhawks fanbase checks this board. I'm dubious. Perhaps we can do some IP checks to verify.



It depends on whether or not someone goes nuts on an offer sheet for one the RFA. If nobody does, this is most likely it. Even Ladd.

It turns out the cap hit for bonuses was only the 1.3 Toews Conn SMythe bonus, not the 4 mil + change that was initially reported.

I'd say a good half of Chicago's bandwagon base.

If this is in fact a done deal what's the hawks cap situation like now?

#2007030 Lilja likely gone

Posted by Kira on 30 June 2010 - 07:52 AM

I think many of you are overlooking the fact that Lilja was never the same after returning from his concussion. He seemed very tentative to do the grinding in the corners that he had previously done. This could be nothing but posturing from Lilja and his agent, but it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if Lilja didn't return.



Who's to say, though, that he was trying to find his limitations while still trying to recover totally? I don't hold it against him at all - I'd probably do the same while I was figuring out just how much I could take. This summer will give him time to recover totally and he'll be back at full strength most likely. I think we should keep him. Sorry, but that's my feeling on this.


#2007192 Holland thinking of re-signing Kirk Maltby

Posted by SouthernWingsFan on 30 June 2010 - 02:16 PM

Honestly, Detroit can only be so loyal to veteran players until it really starts impacting the younger talent. The loss of Quincey comes to mind.

Quincey had every opportunity to make the Detroit roster if he wanted to. If his ultimate goal was to stay with the Red Wings, he blew it. He didn't even beat out Derek Meech for a 7th or 8th defensive spot or whatever. Chris Chelios re-signing had little/no impact on Kyle Quincey. More power to Quincey for excelling in Los Angeles/Denver.


#2007233 What is it why you're a fan of this team?

Détroit til I die.


#2006975 What is it why you're a fan of this team?

Posted by Kira on 29 June 2010 - 11:49 PM

I can think of only one reason why I would not like the Wings. But I daresay it's a really legitimate reason.

Death.


#2006817 Lilja May Test Market

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 June 2010 - 07:16 PM

First we lose Downey, then we lose May, and now we're going to lose Lilja.

This sucks. :(

Damn the contractual turkey


#2006641 Lilja May Test Market

If we lose Lilja, Holland better better ink a veteran to ease the blow. Not only that, locating a veteran that provides everything Lilja does for his price tag will be beyond tough.


#2006976 Lilja likely gone

Posted by Vladiator on 29 June 2010 - 11:50 PM

Too bad and very wrong. Lils fought hard to come back and the Wings season took a good turn last season when he was back in the lineup.


#2006966 Lilja likely gone

Posted by Kira on 29 June 2010 - 11:29 PM

This is wrong on so many levels. Remember how much we missed him on the penalty kill when he wasn't there? I don't want to see that become a permanent absence. Come on, Kenny - bring him back.


#2006474 Cheechoo Placed on Waivers

Posted by EZBAKETHAGANGSTA on 29 June 2010 - 01:50 AM

Because every single underachieving player in the NHL will instantly become the "next Dan Cleary" if they come to Detroit....


So the vast majority of LGW would want to trade Cheechoo too?


#2006445 Pistons sale buzz centers on Ilitches

Posted by KDDRWINGS1 on 28 June 2010 - 11:21 PM

Wrong forum?

WTF do you care? If you don't like something that has nothing to do with you then don't make a big deal out of it.


#2006217 Pistons sale buzz centers on Ilitches

Posted by HankthaTank on 28 June 2010 - 02:41 PM

Yeah, been hearing this one for quite some time and wouldn't even doubt if it happens. There will be a shared arena down the road here which I hate. I don't mind the Pistons downtown one bit but I really truly think the Wings need their own, updated, Olympia looking hockey barn. Old time team needs their own old time arena again.
