Were you drunk when you posted this?
Yeah, sure, because we could have afforded to spend $2m on a third-pairing defenseman, one who happens to be unable to skate. You complain about the most nonsensical s***, GMR. You moan and complain and then you give up in the tough times and scream about how there's no hope. Get your head checked.
Modano isn't a winger, and he wouldn't be playing on the checking line. Maltby was offered a two-way contract; quit being a dumbass. I swear, you'll always find things to complain about; you'll create them out of nowhere if necessary.
Are you ever gonna stop hating around here?
At least my complaints deal with the Wings, and not attacking other posters all the time like you do. You really need to take care of your anger management issues instead of telling me what I should post.
Sutton isn't someone we need to skate well. He'd be here for different reasons, which you obviously can't fathom with your limited knowledge of hockey. You're the biggest whiner on LGW by consistently calling out posters who want to sign tougher players for reasons we think would benefit the team. Your post was just a bad attempt to attack me instead of saying anything bad about Sutton's game that actually makes sense.
As for his salary, the money we'll pay to Modano or Maltby or whatever other lower line players (not Helm) that we've signed or will sign, could have been better served by paying a player like Sutton.
