#2674668 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by Buppy on Yesterday, 03:57 PM

As long as youre not paying him obscene money you don't need him to have a career year. 20+ goals and 50 points is reasonable and would make him the best winger on our team. I'd offer him 4.5 million for three years, if he doesn't take it then oh well. If he does, great.

You don't think he'd produce as much as Datsyuk did this season? I'm saying the 49 points that Datsyuk gave us. 

 

9 years ago he scored 26 goals and 58 points, and on a team that scored more than the Wings. No, I don't think 50 points is at all reasonable, and I'd say 40 would even be a stretch. He's never been any better than any of our current scorers, and I don't see any reason to believe he would be now. I wouldn't offer him even $1.5 for one year. Rather give some kids a chance.

Good read.  I now have some new Holland quotes to add to my list.  

 

My favorite is still "I don't know why they're not coming here"

along with the new arena, LC is also sponsoring the future Red Wings 3rd or alternate jersey

So they basically lied to the city and fans?

Basically. It was supposed to be a Red Wings arena but it's turned into a Little Caeser thing. Mike Illitch trolled us hard. 

 

Would be one thing if tax payer money wasn't involved.

True - just that we expect more is all.
 
Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI might be the only pro sports facility not whored out once the Joe is demolished.....To me - that says alot.


Soldier Field in Chicago...yes renovations were done, but the original facade still remains

Maybe it'll garner the nickname  'The Oven'?

 

Thank God the Illitch family isn't German.

I hate to say it. But it seems as though the wings are going to be just another hockey team after this. The nostalgia and tradition will be gone into corpatism and salary caps

Literally the worst name for an arena right now. I thought Amalie arena was bad. Named after oil. But I can see the commercials now: Arena! Rena! Immediately makes me think of fight club: "When deep space exploration ramps up, it'll be the corporations that name everything, the IBM Stellar Sphere, the Microsoft Galaxy, Planet Starbucks."

Worst name ever ... with all the heritage and legends that put on a Wings jersey, they decide to go with that ... ahhhhhhh!   And for 20 years ??!!
