#2683607 Fans rank front offices....Wings 21st

Posted by DickieDunn on 21 July 2016 - 07:16 PM

The moves Holland as been making aren't geared towards winning the Cup, they're geared towards just making the playoffs and keeping the band together. If a GM can't move on from guys like Helm and Miller, who can he move on from?

Number 1 in terms of quotes with excuses, however.

Helm will botch that line up. No hands, fumbles the puck to much.

Getting Fowler would require Uncle Kenny to trade one of his boys, he'll never do it.

At least Holland isn't signing 4th liners to long term contracts when we need to start infusing more youth into the lineup.........................................................................


#2683233 Glendening signs 4-year, $1.8m AAV extension

Posted by DickieDunn on 14 July 2016 - 09:09 PM

The issue isn't necessarily about Glendening, it's about having several young forwards who are at least potentially NHL players in the next 2-3 years and Holland handing out 4 year or more contracts to guys who could easily be replaced and refusing to trade anyone else because it's hard.

#2683030 Revisiting the 2011 Entry Draft

Not enough tough North American boys with simple names.  I knew that draft would fail.  




#2682761 Who should get A?

Jiri Hudler

Nah, he gets called for hooking too frequently. ;)

Interesting to see "better" winning.

The problem with advanced stats is they don't always take into account the sheltered minutes some people play.

Our issues never get solved, glut of undersized unproductive overpaid forwards, lack of defensive leadership, a failure to fix the defense, the needed trade that just never happens and a goalie that should have been traded last year.

This GM continues to focus his time on unproductive pieces (Helm, Miller, Cleary etc) while DeKeyser is yet to be signed. Really wish Yzerman was the GM and Holland would have moved upstairs,

out the door or wherever, what a mess.




#2681611 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

This post licks sweaty balls.


Similar to what has been posted today. Ironically.

#2681525 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 01 July 2016 - 02:25 PM

What player at what price?

Vanek at 3.5-4 million on a 1 year, Brouwer at 4.5 for 4 years, McGinn at 3.5 for 4 years... or if those players truly didn't have any interest in the Wings, let Athansiou play real minutes on the third line.  Helm's deal screws the young guys, unless he plays 2C, and that would be him sorely over-valued.

Preview of the 2016/17 season:
 
Nielsen to Zetterberg to Nyquist.
Back to Zetterberg, over to Nielsen.
Fakes the shot, passes back to Nyquist.
He waits... passes it to Zetterberg.
