Kipwinger...you're wrong about Crosby's impact on Kunitz.  If you check the numbers, his goal scoring is 33% higher with Crosby than it is without.  If that isn't significant, I'm not sure what is.  Anything over 10% i'd consider significant.  Dupuis is 28% better with Crosby than without (points wise it's 45%)

 

I'll bet you 100 pesos that kipwinger is right.

After last July 1st us Wings fans deserve to celebrate these 2 signings!

 

I haven't been this excited since that fake thread many years back about us signing Andre Roy.   :hehe:

Are you living in the past? Abby hits everything that moves, he battles for pucks goes into corners, and is coming off a 23 goal 44 point season. Not to mention this is a contract year for him, so he may even put up 55 points

 

44 points is good for a 1st liner playing with Z and Nyqyist?

 

Maybe in a lockout shortened season it is.  A talented winger would have scored more than 44 points on the first line with two talented linemates like he had.  I won't deny that he battles for pucks and plays hard, but a 1st liners top priority should be putting up lots of points.

Joel Ward is good but he made 3 million last year. We can't afford to and shouldn't spend 3 million on a 3rd-4th line player.

 

Miller is underrated. He is actually a pretty big body, gently nudges everyone into the boards, and comes pretty cheap. 

 

Fixed.  


It's laughable at how people complain about Holland doing nothing in years past, and now he goes out a makes some deals today, and some people still complain.

 

Holland signed one of the biggest d-man F/A's today, then picks up an UPGRADE over Weiss, for only one year, and people still aren't happy.

 

I'm 100% happy with what Holland did today.  Well done, sir!

 

I liked the Green signing and said so.  Not sure about this one.  I feel like we did this with Modano and Weiss.  Past his prime, small left-handed centerman.  Not coming here to score goals or be a game breaker.

 

Not as excited about this signing as Green.  We've seen this story before me thinks.

no not Mike Richards...lol, Dreger and LeBrun tweeting, but I can't paste for some reason :(

 

Would be great if we could sign Lebron (you spelled it wrong).  Not sure what he has to do with hockey, though.
