#2427375 Wings sign Stephen Weiss, 5-years, $24.5m

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 05 July 2013 - 03:34 PM

 

There will be more than 2.3 million. The wings have trade a couple forwards after today's signings. Trade for picks = cap space

Exactly.  Kenny Holland said he was going to sign big forwards at the draft.  He did.

 

He said he was going to try and get a 2nd line centre and was looking at top 6 guys.  He followed through.

 

He said he was going to have to move some pieces around with trades and that guys that were assured spots on the Wings next year are Tatar, Nyquist, Smith, Andersson and Lashoff I believe.  He's followed through on everything else and has been patient, unlike some GM's and has been responsible with a cap that's gone down 6 million. 

 

2 best GM's of the summer are Kenny Holland and Kekaloopydoo from the BJ's.

Loui gets love here because he's exactly what the Wings need. Oh well, Sammy will power the team into the Finals

And has proven chemistry with Z and Mule.

One last thing for the night.

He wants to play in warm weather, per Helene St. James and other sources.

It would be hilarious if he signed with Florida long term and then they got moved to Quebec.




#2425142 Red Wings won't pursue David Clarkson

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 02 July 2013 - 10:19 PM

Come on, I know Red Wings fans are smarter than this. Yeah, he's just an enforcer ... who happens to score 25-30 goals. That's more than McCarty ever scored. Probert scored 29 once, but that was a different NHL. 

 

I'm not saying Clarkson is worth his asking price, but to imply that he's nothing more than an enforcer is a bit ridiculous, don't you think. 

But hey.....watch this!

 

 

I don't know how to embed youtube videos on here, so if someone can help me out, we can all enjoy one of the best grinder goals EVER!

 

Nevermind...it embeds itself.  Enjoy!




#2425117 Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 02 July 2013 - 09:27 PM

Maybe because he knew signing players wasn't going to make a difference?  Maybe he wanted to give the kids a chance?  Maybe he didn't have the go-ahead to trade away assets for players like Iginla, Murray, Morrow, Jagr, Clowe, etc.     ...that all worked out in the end anyway, huh?

 

I understand the frustration behind the "HE DOESN'T DO ANYTHING" mentality... but we have a team that consistently makes the playoffs and doesn't draft high.   WTF DO YOU WANT?! 

 

oh right... We Want The Cup.

Then why re-sign Cleary?  There goes Tatar's spot, and $3 mil?  That has to be a typo.  That's absurd for a guy on the decline who has been injured for 3 years.  I'm ok with not getting Lecavalier, Horton, Clarkson, even Weiss or Ryder, but I do not want Cleary taking up a kids roster spot that provides more offence, spark and can grind out an 82 game schedule.  Sometimes it's just time to move on.

Commentary for Cleary:

 

Cleary skates down the left boards, trips over centre ice line, collects himself and continues down the boards.  He hits the blue line with mediocre speed and gets the puck as close as he can to his favorite shooting are, top of the circle, puck literally touching the boards, and he sends a wrister to the net......bread basket!  We never saw that coming!

Hampus Melen?

Stephen Weiss will be a Red Wing friday. So will Mikeal Samuelsson. :(

I'm gonna throw a prediction out there in the universe.

 

Wings sign Weiss and Ryder.

Buyout Colo and Sammy.

Trade Eaves and Tootoo.

Re-sign Brunner, Nyquist, Andersson and Smith.

Jagr buys a rocking chair for his porch, realizes it's really comfy and just stays there.




#2424972 Report: Red Wings out on Lecavalier - signs with Philly 5@4.5 per

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 02 July 2013 - 06:33 PM

This contract is going to be hilarious in 2 years when Vinny REALLY can't skate anymore.. Full NMC for a regressing 33 year old centre. Glad Holland didn't bite.

Far too many NMC's being thrown around by GM's these days.  It's getting ridiculous.




#2424676 2013 NHL Entry Draft Discussion

Ya well some of these big name players taken this year in the top ten probably won't even see much nhl time in their career, and some unknown guy will be a star. That's just the way she goes

 My money is obviously on Hampus Melen.  Now THAT is a household name!  I'm not jumping on the bandwagon on this one, I'm pulling it, which is fine cause it's not heavy.

Melencoly and the infinite Hampus.

Hampus Melen is the best name in hockey since Zarley Zalapski and Enrico Ciccone.

One may wonder what the Wings plan to do with this guy.  He's a big tough SOB that can play forward of defense.  If he plays D, he could be our Scott Stevens type which would make my day, but if he played forward, dare I say he could be as close as we could get to our old fan favorite Bob Probert.  Not saying he's the same as the 2 guys above, but it would be nice to think we have a guy in our system that could play one of those 2 roles, and hopefully do it well.
