#2439115 Bertuzzi Needs To Retire

Posted by Z and D for the C on 26 September 2013 - 09:45 AM

Then we'd have no size up front.


Like Franzen or Bertuzzi use their size.


#2428807 Abdelkader Hypothetical

Posted by Z and D for the C on 08 July 2013 - 02:10 PM

No way he becomes a more offensively complete player than Flip. And that assist number is crazy, look at his career.

 

Aside from the obvious post just to knock Filppula, he scored 10 goals in a little more than half a season last year and the season before that he had 14 assists with a full season. Playing with Z and Pav for a whole year and getting some confidence/experience, I could see him doubling those numbers. I'm not saying it absolutely will happen, but it's more than possible.




#2428802 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by Z and D for the C on 08 July 2013 - 01:28 PM

It really sours me, as I would give up a ******** to play one game with Detroit.

 

Yes, I'm sure you and Brunner are in the exact same position and so he should give up anything you would just to play for Detroit.

What is the weather like in Tampa? What should I pack?




#2428158 Filppula to Tampa 5 yr $5 million

Not to mention, the fanbase there won't be as harsh.   

 

On the other hand, they don't have me.




#2427230 Filppula to Tampa 5 yr $5 million

Z, D and C is crying in a corner somewhere.


Oh please. I'm crying on my chair like a man.
 

Though I think it could be argued its a lateral move when its all said and done


Oh yeah it could.



No, I'm actually happy with this. Both Flip and the Wings needed a change. Hopefully he does well in Tampa, though their depth on wing is pretty shallow.


#2427030 who's on their way out of Detroit

I have dreams of trading for Bobby Ryan and slipping Sammy in there maybe without anyone noticing.


#2426988 Wings sign Stephen Weiss, 5-years, $24.5m

Posted by Z and D for the C on 05 July 2013 - 01:21 PM

Nice to have a different look for the top 6. Hopefully we can sign Brunner yet.


#2426619 Dreger: Filppula looking for $5.5m/season over at least 7 years

Posted by Z and D for the C on 05 July 2013 - 11:36 AM

I think both Weiss and Grabovski are better players.


Past two years:
Filppula: 122g, 32g, 51a
Weiss: 97g, 21g, 40a
Grabovski: 122g, 32g, 35a

How are weiss or Grabovski any better than Filppula?

At this point, anyone on the FA list is a downgrade from Flip. If we sign Weiss for anything around $4.5m, it would be insane.


#2426557 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Posted by Z and D for the C on 05 July 2013 - 11:17 AM

$3.5 M*****F****** million for a 40 yr old????? ... he better score 25 goals and 75 pts AT LEAST ... in other worries ... please re-sign Brunner ...


$3.5 requires 75 points, seriously? It's not a sure thing that even Pav or Z will get 75 points, and they make $6m+


#2426283 Dreger: Filppula looking for $5.5m/season over at least 7 years

Posted by Z and D for the C on 05 July 2013 - 07:23 AM

Why are the Wings still in on him for the rumored price Filppula is seeking?


Key word: rumored.

Seriously, with Lecavalier gone, who is a better option for 2C on the FA market? I hope we resign Flip at this point, even if we have to go as high as $4.5m. Because lets face it, we're not going to make a big time trade and there are no better options that are less of a gamble than Flip.

Story of Filppula on LGW: People don't want him to resign, but also get pissed at him for not wanting to resign.


#2424487 Hawks re-sign Bickell (4 years 16 mill)

Posted by Z and D for the C on 01 July 2013 - 03:16 PM

Has there been a free agent signing in the past year that we havent said "Overpayment"? Maybe we, not only fans but Wings managment as well, need to get off our high horses about "overpaying" players. Prices go up, that's how the world works.

Are you going to join a new board when he leaves?

 

Oh come on, I'm a Wings fan more than a Filppula fan and if it was between signing Lecavalier or Filppula I'd pick Lecavalier. That said if we can't get him, I think Filppula simply had an off year and will be back to his 11-12 form next season and would want him back.

Maybe, but that's rather speculative. Filppula is 29 and has one solid season of production in a larger role. That came on the wing playing with Henrik Zetterberg. I think we can all agree that paying Filppula (again) for "potential" isn't ideal, especially at 5.5 per season.

This is a track record contract and unfortunately Filppula doesn't really have much to show for his demands.

 

I agree with all of this. I also agree with FlashyG about having Lecavalier for a second line center instead of Filppula (I'd like both, if we have the space). I just think people are giving Filppula way to little credit.
