#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"

Who's his agent? Evander Holyfield?


#2318818 How bad are we if our roster is now finalized?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 July 2012 - 10:21 PM

We're so bad that even Crymson and Nightfall probably believe deep down that we'll miss the playoffs.


#2318772 Holland Content with Current Roster

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 July 2012 - 07:58 PM

Same old s*** from Holland.

He's done nothing of significance the last several deadlines and offseasons.

This offseason, his big accomplishment is signing a 4th liner that any GM could have signed and that old goof Samuelsson, who we don't need at this point. And that's coming off three early playoff exits in a row and the retirement of your best player for the last decade.

I don't know what our record will be next season, but the offseason up until now has been a disaster. But Holland's mentality is, "All is well"

This is smart from Kenny. What were people expecting him to say?
"Well the current roster isn't good enough, this team has no chance", can you imagine what message that sends to a player?

I am tired of reading about Semin, if he doesn't want to sign for one year, he won't be Wing, period.
The roster needs indeed work but there is nothing outthere, so staying pat is smart, panic signings are kneejerk!


Honesty is a b****.


#2318400 Reminder: Personal attacks, trolling will not be tolerated

I disagree with your assessment.


Go back to your Kings forum, troll.

:tounge:

My two cents: The ignore function is incredible. I just discovered where it was and already the quality of my LGW experience has improved immensely. From now on that's my first stop when repeatedly irritated by someone's posts, unless it's someone's quirks I've come to accept (looking at you Leftwinger), in which case I'll continue to jocularly rib with shear delight.


I can proudly say that in my almost 5 years here (anniversary coming up :yahoo: ), I'm quite confident no one has ever dared put me on ignore.


#2317492 How bad are we if our roster is now finalized?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 09 July 2012 - 07:32 PM

they could make the playoffs, don't know about winning the cup


LOL. What Cup is that? The cup of Christ?

Howard would have to steal every playoff series for us to win. So far, he's been decent in his career, but nothing spectacular in the playoffs. He's only beaten Bryzgalov and that's it.


#2316979 Def trade on the horizon

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 July 2012 - 11:20 AM

Hope Kenny gives us something to cheer about this weekend.


Is he going to trade himself for Steve Yzerman?


#2316853 Wings hire Lidstrom as overseas amateur scout

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 July 2012 - 08:10 PM

Any chance Lidstrom signs with Minnesota instead, to be their scout? :rolleyes:


#2316827 The Next Move

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 July 2012 - 06:08 PM

Betcha Holland is putting together his best pitch for Shane Doan...... It would be an excellent recovery step. 4 years avg 5.75 cap hit.


I hope he does a better job than he did with Suter.


#2316824 Evander Kane is a Better Option than Zach Parise

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 July 2012 - 05:44 PM

Don't forget, the guy killed Matt Cooke.

That should make every team want him.


#2316779 Semin

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 July 2012 - 02:22 PM

Semin will come to Detroit, and the season will have a happy ending in June.

I can foresee it.


#2315316 We Need to Trade

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 July 2012 - 09:12 PM

There's talk that Van Persie wants out of Arsenal..........

Different sport, but I'd still take him based on what a disaster today has been for the Wings.


#2315058 Opinions if Wings have to settle for 'Plan B': Semin and Carle

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 July 2012 - 05:09 PM

I will be mad if the Wings make a trade. There is no one I want to give up from the farm or team save the worthless ones.
People shouldn't panic, the team shouldn't overpay. They will be fine and Smith/Kindl will work as fine as anyone. We won't replace Lidstrom this way but that wasn't going to happen anyways.

This was the worst offseason of the cap era without a doubt. I don't care about not getting Parise, but Suter hurts. I wanted Weber more than all three of them so I hope they SIGN him next year without a trade.


The farm is too good to touch.Keep signing bodies for compettion but don't overpay anyone. I would love to see us sign Muller, Semin, Rozsival, Carle, all to short term deals and hopefully they win jobs without costing us anyone. Trade roster players if need be, but leave the farm alone. The best part would be if we brought in more people we can bounce Tootoo to GR and let him rot.


It really isn't. Our farm is overrated by the fanbase here.
