GMR.....I need to go welcome you there then...Hillbillypantherfan is my name there.......hahahahahahhahahah 


I honestly never knew that he worked for the Wings.  Shows you how much I care about GR.  I just knew him as a jobber that won the Cup with the Pens in 1992, and was one of the few Koreans in NHL history.

We're so bad, that people would rather go to North Korea than work with the Wings.





Didn't you know? The Redwings org has lost its shine. no one wants to be here anymore. It's only a matter of time before the fans start leaving.

Wasn't he always billed as being from Detroit?


(I posed that as a question even though I know this to be definitely true). 


Yeah.  Maybe not in his earlier days when he had different gimmicks.


I'm confused, though.  Is this Dekeyser's nickname, because I've never heard it until now.  I thought his nickname should be "Der Kaiser", like Beckenbauer.

...after the #KFQ signing I doubt the Wings would want to afford another $4M+ a year defenseman.  I think Diesel can be had for $2.5M to $3.5M on a two to three year bridge contract.  He will still be an RFA after that and can then get a nice fat contract that will bring him into UFA territory.  His next contract, if all progresses then way we all hope it does, will be in the $5M to more range.  I just don't think he should get a $4M+ contract right now.  I don't know why #KFQ got that much, but he is most definitely NOT worth that even on the open market and at this moment Diesel is not quite to Kronwall status on this team.  I say two years $2.75 per and then the next RFA signing will be his big one...then I dread the UFA days to come.


I don't think Tatar should get more the $1.5M.  IF he turns that down and opts for arbitration and handcuffs Holland, I will be putting him the Hudler category.


Am I missing something here?
