Share constructive criticism all you want, I do the same. Whats funny is that one minute you see posts flowing in about how quick the wings look and the upside and this and that, and as soon as ONE goal goes in, the opposite happens. I'd be willing to bet as soon as the Wings tie this and take the lead, people will go back to talking about their quickness and start planning the parade.
Fans are fickle by nature, it's just something I've grown used to.
Lidstrom and pasha would get tired.
There's a joke in there somewhere, but I don't think it would be appropriate for this forum.
In college I used to stay up the night before drinking ice beer and watching all my favorite hockey movies before skipping class the next day and getting to the bar...early. I tend to think that would be frowned upon these days.
So, Weiss is just not playing but Glendening, Andersson and Nestrasil all are? Weiss may be a complete bust yet, but I still think he has more to offer than any of those three. Give him a chance at least.
I'd be interested to see what Weiss can provide when healthy. On the other hand I've seen what Andersson can provide when he's healthy and I'm not all that excited.
Good deal, although I think a longer term might have been better. It would have let the Wings save some cap space for the future, now if he continues to progress he will probably earn 5-7 mil in 2 years after current deal is up.
Now thinking about it the hold-up might have been Holland trying to sign DD to a longer deal at a smaller cap, and DD may have been happier with a shorter deal--which gives him the possibility to make more after this deal is up. I don't know-- I'm just happy it's done.
