Lmao we should make a video of compilation of pics of the Red Wings Swedish mafia over the years with this music playing in the background. Then send it to the DRG wacko that released the article. 

 

Original Don Lidstrom (aka Vito) through the years and passing it onto Don Zetterberg (aka Michael). Makes sense, Vito was a way better Don than Michael was. 

I say Lilja is/was Luca Brasi.

Between them 2 guys - Grapes, and PK - they're responsible for the eradication of them 1970's cheesy sofas to make them fancy suits...I gotta tell ya - them poor sofas...Eh.




#2684025 Mrazek avoids arbitration... signs 2 year deal

Posted by F.Michael on 27 July 2016 - 10:16 AM

Now hopefully Howard will be placed on the expansion draft list next summer.

#2683986 DeKeyser re-signed to a 6 year deal

Sproul >>> Wisniewski

I look at Wiz like a used condom...




#2683921 DeKeyser re-signed to a 6 year deal

Posted by F.Michael on 26 July 2016 - 09:08 AM

A little higher than I would have liked, but overall I think it's a solid deal.

Yup - as most of us here had expected.




#2683716 Hall of Fame Worthy

Posted by F.Michael on 23 July 2016 - 11:29 PM

1 guy I always respected (although he was a Hawk) is Steve Larmer.

 

Highly unlikely he'll ever get in the HOF, but had an impressive career nonetheless.

I refuse to believe Holland is that stupid. However, if this were to happen, I would officially side with the F*** Ken Holland crowd...

Come to the 'Dark Side'...We have cookies.




#2683241 For the Kenny apologists, what Holland move would change your stance o

Posted by F.Michael on 15 July 2016 - 01:32 AM

Ya you probably weren't around when flashy used to come round here all the time. His game day threads were priceless. He has mad Photoshop skills

His GDT of 'Inglorious Babcocks' was spectacular.

#2683111 Pulkkinen re-signs with a 1 year deal

Posted by F.Michael on 13 July 2016 - 10:28 PM

Too funny. I remember watching Benny Hill when I was a kid.

Fond memories of watching Benny Hill back in the late 70's...Damn near peed myself with those crazy sketches.

 

We started to giggle during the 'Thames' intro - knowing it was gonna be a good show...

 




#2683090 Pulkkinen re-signs with a 1 year deal

Posted by F.Michael on 13 July 2016 - 03:05 PM

Small European forwards.... Kenny just has to catch them all.

Made me think of a 'Benny Hill' sketch...Holland is running around an open field with a butterfly net, and he's nabbing these smallish Euro forwards all to the music of 'Yakety Sax'...

I don't think that's necessarily true. I dont think two guys signed to one year contracts for less than a million are necessarily going to be penciled into the lineup. Obviously Helms going to play (and he should), but not the other two. I dont think they're safe. Especially Ott. Holland waived Tootoo, why would he be reluctant to waive Ott?

The more interesting question is why did Holland sign Ott to begin with?

 

It's not like he's the biggest-baddest guy in the league that our smallish team can rally around...IMHO he's yet another Tootoo part two.

 

The $$$ spent on this contract, and Miller's could've been used more effectively - such as for DD, and Mrazek's.




#2682476 Wings file for abitration with Peter Mrazek

Posted by F.Michael on 06 July 2016 - 07:48 PM

OP Mrazek ... sound it out.  

 

He got Holland by the balls ... M knows that he is the man in net.  

That would've been the case had he not burnt out in the back half of the season, and when Jimmy stepped up.




#2682403 DeKeyser files for arbitration...

Posted by F.Michael on 06 July 2016 - 12:19 PM

Most players have different hearing dates; sometime between July 20th and August 4th. They have not been determined yet.

Yup - and by filing it will get the 2 sides to the negotiating table instead of dicking around

 

I believe both sides want a 4 plus year deal, and it'll be in the $5 million range (give or take $500K).
