#2532264 Red Wings & the Media

Posted by T.Low on 16 July 2014 - 02:23 PM

I make about one post a year and I have to waste it on this garbage....
BOOO, these reporters are reporting on the news and not on whatever their opinion might be, BOOO.
This is being played like politics and a perceived lack of interest in bashing management is being equated to condoning said moves.
These are not the same things, everyone is taking mental shortcuts to the conclusion and bypassing the idea that media SHOULD report ONLY the facts.
People are so quick to forget that because it is sports, it is journalism too, adding opinion taints that.
Let bloggers speculate, speculation is what you people seem to desire, but is also the reason these speculators don't have credentials, because they only want those credentials to make their asinine opinions seem more valid when they are arguing in their own comments section.
Nobody knows what a good signing is until the season is over and we all have 20/20 hindsight, your intuition is not proof of any fact and your anger is not a catalyst for change. All I read when I see this garbage is a lot of spoiled fans who even after making the playoffs for 23 years in a row and winning more Stanley Cups than any team in a quarter century, think they could do better and sit around bitterly whining about a few depth moves being made.
Grow up Hockeytown!
29 other teams lose the cup or on said free agent, I can't wait for the article to come out saying player X didn't want to come to Detroit because of the entitled fans, well I guess I could buy a website, call myself a blogger, write the opinion myself, use anonymous sources and then ***** because no one takes me serious.


I need to be informed of "what" happened, not what to "think" about it. I can do that on my own.

Canucks= Theon Greyjoy. Ouch. Very ouch.

#2531125 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by T.Low on 10 July 2014 - 04:00 PM

Quince @4.5, Cleary @1.5...I know there's term and circumstances, yada, yada, yada, but I can't help but seeing $6m that should be going to a top 4D or top 6F...

Thanks for the update on the Jarnkrok Legwand trade' was curious about the status of that.

#2529242 Can Z and Pav do anything to protest? (not that they would)

Not show? Protest? Are they hippies? Are you thinking Occupy Joe Louis or something?

I'm still holding out for Kesler, even though he's in Anaheim. Perseverance.

Edit: Wife just tells me Denial ain't just a River in Africa. Hmm, yeah, so? What's your point?

Are you guys assuming we are not going to re-sign alfie? Just curious if he has made a decision not to play another year?

we've got to sign Alfie: I just traded away Franzen and Tatar in the Joe Thornton thread!

LOL you think Franzen Weiss and Anderson have value? Lol HAGAGAHAHA post of the year right there.

:-) believing is the key to sales ( and in this case, negotiation) I'm such a good salesman, every four years my boss sends me down to pick out whatever new truck I want.

You got to believe. :-)

So, if we trade for Thornton does that mean Weiss goes to the wing?  And if so, does that mean one of Franzen or Nyquist becomes the top line winger?  And how does re-signing Alfie influence this?
Is there actually a plan or are we just grasping at straws here?

No, because, as I posted earlier, Weiss and Andy in package for Kesler to play on Datsyuks wing.

Tatar in a package for Dumbo Jumbo.

Kesler Datsyuk Franzen

Zetterberg Thorny Nyquist

Jurco Sheahan Pulkinen

Miller Glendening Abdelskater

It can happen, and it will.

Ok...I'm officially ready for July 1, and beyond.

#2524178 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

Posted by T.Low on 17 June 2014 - 09:51 AM

Verbal agreement? Clearly did not/cannot hold up his end of the deal. Agreement has been broken, so no dishonor done in not signing him.

Realistically, if we don't get a forward of Kesler's caliber, and a top 2 Dman, D and Z won't win another cup.

#2522316 Jeff Blashill close to signing an extension... Babcock talks starting

Posted by T.Low on 01 June 2014 - 01:42 PM

Babcock will go two more years in Detroit, then he will replace Red Berensen at Michigan, and Blashill will take over the Wings.
