#2323652 Do you want us to trade for Ott?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 August 2012 - 09:26 PM

Godard, yeah? He and every other pure enforcer is not not on the ice in the play-offs. We need guys like Darren McCarty. Ott fits this well.


Playoffs? Who said anything about playoffs?

Sign away Kenny.


#2322672 Your thoughts on Sergei Fedorov

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 July 2012 - 03:32 PM

Fedorov WAS one of the best forwards in history. To say otherwise is ridiculous. Is he on par with Howe, Richard, Gretzky, and Lemieux? Probably not. But he's definitely on par with the Beliveau's, Hull's, and Esposito's. Put 91 up there and patch things up.

LOL.

He's not remotely in the same league as any of those players. To say otherwise is indeed ridiculous.


#2322303 Semin signs one year, $7m deal with Carolina

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 July 2012 - 08:20 PM

Remember how everyone felt OK after the Nashville loss, because we'd have plenty of money to spend on all these big free agents left and right?

:glare:


#2320805 Flyers sign Weber to offer sheet: 14y/$110m ($56m 1st 4yrs)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 July 2012 - 07:24 PM

Gimme a break. Bertuzzi made sure he'd never think about doing it again.


Bertuzzi didn't even land a punch.

I'm saying Weber wouldn't have done it in the first place if he knew somebody like MacIntyre or Engelland would be after him at some point in the future. Who would?

BTW, I do this all the time on NHL 12. Give a player a monster offer sheet, knowing the other team will match it. Good way to drive up other teams' caps.

Thank you Kevin Lowe for the idea. ;)

Granted, I'm pretty sure the Flyers are dead serious about this offer, and not just being dicks.

Being as that there have been 9 different cup winners since 2003, I don't think its reasonable to expect "cups" for the Wings in the next 10 years. I think 1 is a realistic expectation. Besides, as evidenced this year by the Kings, I feel the Wings have a good shot if they hit the playoffs hot.

I take it you would take the "balls to the walls" signings over the cup victories over the last 15 years? Good to know. You should root for Philly, they have done just what you like. Besides, Bryzgalov was a great signing last season. I bet you creamed your pants. :D


Our Cup victories often involved "balls to the walls signings". I don't know what you're trying to argue. And you know I'm not a Flyers fan so why waste your time?

Holland made huge moves in 2002 and we won the Cup as a result. Now he seems to be falling on his face with the salary cap.

Are you arguing that by not doing s***, we're somehow better off or better apt to win the Cup? I doubt it.


#2320505 Holland Content with Current Roster

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 July 2012 - 06:46 PM

Holland should do what the samurai used to do when they failed at their jobs. Commit seppuku.

He tried to make important moves and none of them worked. Unfortunately, his job is making moves to improve the team, not merely "trying" to make moves that help the team.

Be a man Holland.

Its readily apparent that Leftwinger would rather have "balls to the walls" signings rather than Stanley Cups. Me? I will take the cups. :)


Right, because we're on the verge of winning Cups right now. :rolleyes:


#2320305 With cap space to clear, do Flyers become a Wings trade partner?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 July 2012 - 11:47 AM

Please Holland NO Lilja...I haven't forgiven him yet for the 2009 giveaway...


What 2009 giveaway? You're thinking of "Mr. Game 7" (Brad Stuart)

I want Simmonds or Rinaldo on the team. Would make us tougher to play against.


#2319954 Could trade rumors spark Franzen?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 July 2012 - 08:45 PM

Yeah, Nash wasn't even in the top 50 for his position last season. Fleischmann had a better season than Nash playing on a team that scores less than Columbus.


Did Rick Nash steal your corn dog during school lunch or something?


#2319847 Red Wings re-sign Quincey: 2-years, $7.55m total, $3.775/yr

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 July 2012 - 03:24 PM

As people here say when other teams sign free agents..........OVERPAID!!!!!!


#2319845 Could trade rumors spark Franzen?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 July 2012 - 03:23 PM

Guess we'll just have to suffer with a 4 million dollar 30 goal scorer.

At least we aren't Columbus and have to pay 7.5 million for a 30 goal scorer.


It's not like one guy had a better passing center than the other. :rolleyes:


#2319799 Red Wings make "helluva" offer for Nash, no response

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 July 2012 - 01:55 PM

This would be almost as cool as Hogan joining the NWO.


#2319798 Could trade rumors spark Franzen?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 July 2012 - 01:54 PM

I'll believe it when I see it. In the meantime......

#2319124 Dominik Hasek's agent: "He will play, and he will excel"

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 July 2012 - 11:11 AM

Who's his agent? Evander Holyfield?
