#2196655 Salei to Play in Russia..

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 July 2011 - 07:34 PM

10 years from now, none of us will remember that he played here.

He wasn't physical enough, and took dumb penalties game after game, just like his previous reputation suggested.

And to think they gave him the same number Probert and Chelios wore.


#2196654 "We feel good with the people we have," Holland said

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 July 2011 - 07:31 PM

It's the fact Holland always sits and sits and sits .... then once the trade deadline passes, he says, yet again, "I like our team and there wasn't anybody out there we liked." With Holland it's the same company line every damn time he is asked about improving the club. Last year he said the same nonsense in the summer. He said we need a Top 6 scorer. And then the trade deadline came and went. Again.

This is Niks last season, and i'd like to see us back in the Finals and winning another Cup. Who can honestly say he is going to shock the NHL and make big swaps to get us back to where we belong. The man is complacent, whether he's waiting for our young guys to get here, or he is simply gun-shy.
Ian White and Commodore? Yeh I bet he beat out 6 or 7 other GM's lining up to sign those two, huh? They are DEPTH guys. Nothing more. Yet some already got White pencilled in as a Top 4 guy. :yowza:

Still waiting ...


The Wings seem to be in denial that they've lost two years in a row in the 2nd round, and to the same team.

Holland seems to think that we have a good team, and he's right. He's not right, however, in not trying to take this team to the next level.

We're not a Cup contender right now. There's no reason to think we're a better team than last year. We are a little deeper on defense, but our forwards are one year older and are too frequently injured. We need some new blood desperately at forward, before the injuries start kicking in again. The secondary scoring wasn't consistently there in the playoffs. Neither was our forechecking from the 3rd and 4th lines.

I'm starting to think that Holland is content with 2nd round playoff losses.


#2196638 Happy Birthday Jedi!

Happy B-Day to the only mod who doesn't hate me.

:blush:


#2195088 Richards to NYR

We could have paid him at that price, instead of paying Ericsson.


#2195075 Forward lines next season?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 July 2011 - 09:46 AM

We had way too many floaters last year at forward to bring them all back next season.

Some new blood is needed in the lineup.


#2195068 Forward lines next season?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 July 2011 - 09:36 AM

Another 2nd round playoff loss to the Sharks with that lineup.

I guess Holland's job is to do nothing at all. That's unacceptable considering how we haven't done anything in the playoffs the last two seasons, other than beat up on Phoenix.


#2194867 Red Wings trying to move Jiri Hudler

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 July 2011 - 10:20 PM

Hudler was on a 100 point pace at one juncture of the season.

That should improve his trade value, right?


#2194229 Wings sign D Mike Commodore to 1-year, $1m contract

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 July 2011 - 02:15 PM

Well, he is 6'5.

Maybe playing with Ericsson will renew his fighting spirit.


#2192976 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 June 2011 - 09:51 PM

I for one demand a personal apology from Holland via PM here on LGW.


#2192946 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 June 2011 - 09:40 PM

I'm trolling trolls.

I hate this signing. I dislike even more that people are so dumb as to call for Holland's head over it. How many GMs in league history never made a bad signing?


Yzerman?


#2192928 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 June 2011 - 09:37 PM

FIRE HOLLAND. ALL OF HIS PAST SUCCESS MEANS NOTHING IN THE FACE OF THIS ONE SIGNING! WE ARE RATIONAL PEOPLE---HEAR US ROAR! RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!


Now you're just trolling this thread.

For the first time EVER, every poster on LGW agrees on something unanimously, and you have to f*** it up.

Do you actually think this was a good signing?


#2192917 Give me one reason

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 June 2011 - 09:34 PM

If Ericsson = 3.75 million in Holland dollars, than Stamkos will cost about 20 million a year!


#2192909 Holland Appreciation Thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 June 2011 - 09:30 PM

I appreciate what Holland has done in the past (even though a lot of that credit should go to Ilitch's money, Bowman, no salary cap, Yzerman and Lidstrom).

However, I haven't been too keen on his unwillingness to make deadline moves the last two seasons, coupled with the Modano and Hudler acqusitions, and now this Ericsson overpayment.

In sports, it's what have you done for me lately. That's the way thinking should go, otherwise teams won't ever progress anywhere by living in the past.


#2192876 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 June 2011 - 09:22 PM

The lot of you are shockingly spoiled. Which other team has had the success that the Wings had? Which other GM has brought success like Holland has? And now you feel that because of one bad move, because of one rough offseason, he should be fired. Fans of every other team tell me that they think Holland is the BEST. I feel pity for he and for others in the organization that so many of you have so utterly lost perspective, from so many years of success that they have given you, that you have lost the ability to be appreciative for the fact that you have a great team to cheer for every year.


Be honest.

Did you have this ridiculous post prepared ahead of time, knowing something like this would happen?


#2192870 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 June 2011 - 09:20 PM

So much for Holland thinking that all the free agents were getting overpaid.

This is the worst signing so far by any team. <_<

Worse than Kopecky getting $3 million.
