#2532892 Jim Paek leaves Griffs to help run Korean Hockey

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on Yesterday, 02:35 PM

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

#2532334 Babcock Interview on 105.1 this morning

Posted by GoWings1905 on 17 July 2014 - 01:30 PM

I like Babs a lot and this was a good interview, but I have no trust left him in whatsoever when he says "the best players will play."

 

It does sound though like Babs really wants to find a way to integrate the kids on defense sooner rather than later. Which who can blame him when his other options include Quincey, Kindl and Lashoff? 

 

Babs also said the Wings didn't hand out any bad contracts in free agency. Out on the lake when the Quincey deal happened?

That was the night Aaron Downey won us the Cup.  

 

And anyone who doesn't believe it is a cool-aid drinking hater :hehe:

This reminds me of a GDT I did earlier this year called the "Ken Commandments"

#2531617 Who has been Ken Holland's worst recent free agent signing?

Posted by uk_redwing on 11 July 2014 - 03:24 PM

Dishonorable mention should also go to Cory Cross as a consideration.  16 games-2 points.  Benched and then traded.

 

He beat up Steve Ott though...

How about,

 

Cleary can play on the powerplay




#2531522 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by GoWings1905 on 11 July 2014 - 10:55 AM

$2.5 million for a player with the same point total last season as Luke Glendening, who couldn't be less of an offensive threat. Not to mention, the other areas of the game where Glendening contributes and Cleary doesn't. 

 

Cleary will make the team and play ten games -- I think that's almost a guarantee with Holland running the show and Babs saying veterans get first crack, even though Cleary already lost his job to the kids last season. 

 

Ken Holland could have done nothing this summer and it would have been better than the mess he has now created. I know I'm definitely more excited to watch Kyle Quincey and Dan Cleary over Ryan Sproul and Tomas Jurco. 




#2531407 Who is this player

Posted by F.Michael on 10 July 2014 - 10:12 PM

 

Liam Neeson played for the Wings?


 

 

I'll give it a try.  Who's this guy?

#2531142 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Euro_Twins on 10 July 2014 - 04:11 PM

I seriously think Holland is becoming my most hated person in sports.
 
Actually, he is my most hated person in sports.
 
My roomate is from Nigeria and has watched his first ever hockey games (about 10) with me last season. He laughs that Quincey and Cleary are re signed. 
 
The fact that he understands that these players shouldn't be on the team but Holland doesn't says alot.


It's all part of a bigger plan to package Quincey Cleary and andersson for stamkos....


#2530838 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 09 July 2014 - 01:36 PM

I guess Lebron has narrowed his list down to 3 teams...the Heat, the Cavs...and the Red Wings. He has top four defenseman written all over him.

I like kicking the tires, here's why: 

 

Everytime there is a Belle Tire anything I imagine their sponsorship is solely there to allow Ken Holland to spend his off hours in their stores kicking all their tires.




#2529197 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

"My first priority was to be on a good team."  -Ehrhoff.

 

Holy crap.  Just humiliating.

 

That article also takes a dig at the Wings not being able to buy their team.  That pisses me off.  That wasn't even really the case in the pre-cap era. We spent a lot, but we got the right players. 

 

I'm thinking it's Babcock.  Almost every player suffers individually under his reign, and that lowers their future value.  Case in point: no one really wants any of our players except for Nyquist, Jurco or maybe Tatar.  So coming to Detroit could actually be bad for their careers.  He just doesn't seem to utilize some players where they would be strongest (Smith, Cleary, Quincey, Kindl, etc.)
