#2617773 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by marcaractac on Yesterday, 09:55 PM

So pissed about this entire Weiss situation. Holland screwed up by signing him over Filppula (yeah yeah I know I still miss him), Babcock managed him like s*** two years in a row and Holland should have just bought him out when he had the chance to do it without penalty.

 

It wasn't Holland who screwed up by signing Weiss over Filppula. Filppula wanted to go elsewhere. Weiss was signed because we were losing Flip, not because Holland chose Weiss over him. 




#2617739 Saad traded to Columbus

Jackets are going to be LA East next year. They are huge everywhere!

 

Huge everywhere and will finish out of the playoffs? I can accept that  :ninja:




#2617730 Dougie hamilton to calgary

Posted by marcaractac on Yesterday, 08:08 PM

 

He didn't want to stay in Boston, that's why.

 

Even if this were 100% true, they made no effort to start a bidding war for him. There are GM's out there who didn't even know he was on the market. Lousy trade no matter how you look at it. 




#2617656 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Buying him out now instead of next year makes it feel like they want Larkin in the NHL now. I'm all for it.


#2617041 2015 Draft

Posted by marcaractac on 27 June 2015 - 04:49 PM

Wait until the Wings trade one of these picks for a veteran at the deadline. You'll care then.

 

We will at that time never hear the end of it  :lol:




#2617032 Pronger (contract) and Grossman to for Sam Gagner and conditional pick

Posted by marcaractac on 27 June 2015 - 03:54 PM

I just don't understand how Pronger could have taken a job with the league and not forced to retire as a player first. Now basement teams are gonna reach the cap floor with bulls*** contracts like Pronger, when they should be forced to take on players like Weiss. 




#2616809 2015 Draft

Nice another there instead of THEIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Calm down, a lot of people type on phones n s***. Blame autocorrect




#2616804 2015 Draft

Posted by marcaractac on 26 June 2015 - 08:48 PM

As for D, go with what we have, see what options there are for a legit top 4 at the deadline. 

 

 

Probably impossible and I still think mantha will be good and has high upside but would anyone trade mantha for the 24th pick to land Gabriel carlsson and possibly Phaneuf? Guessing we'd have to give more?



Wouldn't even consider it before we got the Russian kid

 

Drafting russians has worked out very well for Tampa. Not many teams take risks on Russians anymore. Could be a steal for us. 




#2616677 Datsyuk Has Ankle Surgery

Posted by marcaractac on 26 June 2015 - 04:50 PM

Datsyuk's ankle surgery was to repair ruptured tendons from a blocked shot late in the #RedWings season. He returned from Russia last week.

 

 

It's said he will be in a cast for 4-6 weeks.

Watch the Bruins get Kessel back




#2616632 Dougie hamilton to calgary

There is still strong reason to believe BOS will trade Milan Lucic today. LA is the leading contender. #TSN


 

When I look at our D corps and I hear that Dougie Hamilton was acquired for some picks..."comforting" is not the word that comes to mind.

 

Like already stated in this thread, no chance Hamilton would ever end up in a division rival. Zero reasons to get on Holland's case over this trade. 




#2616628 Dougie hamilton to calgary

Posted by marcaractac on 26 June 2015 - 03:20 PM

I'm surprised there aren't more people crying,"Why didn't Ken Holland make the trade for Hamilton?!" Or "We could have offered more!!"
As if the Bruins would have any interest in sending one of their guys to a division rival.

 

My reaction was "Damn, I wish we were still in the west"




#2616614 Dougie hamilton to calgary

No s***.  Just take the guy to arbitration, get him signed to a reasonable bridge deal, and shed whatever salary (Chara, Lucic, Eriksson) necessary to keep him around.  I don't really get it either.  They hamstrung themselves on the return the minute the chose to move him as opposed to a half dozen other cap killers on their s***ty roster. 

 

Right? Hamilton and Seguin were two guys they should have been building their team around. Now they have neither. While at times it does feel like Holland does play it a little too safe, it is comforting to know he'd never do stupid s*** like this.

Boston is on the verge of some tough times. I don't understand what they are doing at all. I get that they have to shed salary, but why Hamilton? I mean, good for us that Boston becomes a weaker team. But I guess firing their previous GM did nothing to change trading away their youth. 




#2616009 Yzerman wins GM of Year (& other awards discussion)

Posted by marcaractac on 25 June 2015 - 12:00 AM

The Rangers have had as much success as Tampa in the last three years. And Sather didn't inherit a couple of 1st and second overall superstars. If anything, he's done as much, with less.

 

I don't consider signing the biggest ufa's almost every year, then trade them because it ends up a bad contract being a great gm at all. You throw enough s*** at the wall, eventually something is gonna stick. What they gave up for Yandle will also come back to bite them in the ass at some point.
