#2015838 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Guest on 16 July 2010 - 12:09 PM

you think theyre hossa or pronger or something? lol

that's not how it works with players that were legally allowed to drink last winter. they fetch more money with longterm deals, not less.

Yeah maybe you're right, then sign them to a 1year deal maximum, they shouldnt get more than 1million period, they should earn similar to eaves&miller money.

Didnt they go with: Cooke-Staal-Kennedy?

And where are all these crazy 1.5M for helm/abdelkaders coming from? they're not worth that much? sign a longer contract with a 900k caphit or something

Probably the best third line in the nhl that, chicago isn't as deep, pittsburghs third is pretty good but not as good as detroits potential third line

Haha Babcock is awesome..

"These veteran players, why would they be in a hurry? Why not see how your body feels?" Babcock said. "There is no question Mike plays physically, but does he want to go through the grind again. In Detroit, it won't be a grind if we've got all of our players. We'll get 100 points and you'll get the puck on your tape."

He'll wait and wait then sign in Detroit for $1.5M...

Then make the cover of Sports Illustrated and it will say "Ilya Kovalchuk comes to the Red Wings to win the Cup". Where have I seen this before? :huh:

Looking at the title I thought this was a thread suggesting that the Red Wings trade for Cal Clutterbuck.

This loyalty stuff is Hocum, hockey is a business... loyalty is why we have Draper still and may eat another year of Maltby two guys well past their best before dates.

And it's also why players take discounts to play here. You say hocum, I say smart business, regardless if the Wings have to eat a mil or two to save 5 to 7 mil.

Plus, Homer doesn't need to play all 82 games. He can miss half the season injured as long as he's healthy for the playoffs. If Homer misses half the season injured, that's about $1m that could be used in a deadline trade, right?

If any player is put on LTIR, regardless of how long he is gone, his full salary hit comes on the books when he returns, not just a percentage.So it wouldn't really have an effect on what we could do for the deadline, unless he's on LTIR until the playoffs start, at which we can go any amount over the cap.

C'mon, Lils... If other teams are iffy on your $1.5M, just come on home. You won't even have to deal with Lebs anymore!

I want the Wings to give Maltby the one-year contract. Hear me out on this. If (and it's a BIG if) he actually out-plays the other guys, then he's the one that belongs on the team.

If he doesn't, and if he's willing to go to GR (yup- another big if) we can bring him up in the post season as a black ace. He may not play a game, and he wouldn't get his name on the Cup (thinking positive here!) unless they stuck him in for a game. BUT (and I do have a big butt- oh, wait...) if we get injuries during the playoffs, Kirk Maltby is one man I want to be able to plug into our lineup. He knows the system, he plays his best hockey during the playoffs, and he will be more rested having played the lesser schedule.

As long as he's willing to earn his spot- and everyone understands that he must EARN it, the only downside I can see to signing him is that he might be claimed off of waivers. Granted, it is mostly a downside to him and his family, and the die-hard Malts fans out there, but it would be a loss of a good black ace.

Can't wait to see my rep tomorrow. :D

:clap:

It is sad to see the players from the mid 90s team going out like they are. Maltby took one for the team last year by having surgery so I think Holland would at least give him a two way contract for it. I really hope if we do sign Maltby he plays with passion because I am pretty darn sure that this is the last hoora for Draper, Maltby, Ozzie, and maybe Lidstrom. Depending how hard the season is on Holmstrom's body him as well. :crybaby:

There are no young and old players, but good and bad players!
If Maltby plays better than the others, he should be on this team.
It's as simple as that.
