#2536351 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

Posted by wings87 on 16 September 2014 - 05:43 PM

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. 

#2536116 Who should get cut/traded by game 1 of the season?

Posted by wings87 on 12 September 2014 - 08:53 PM

Love to see Kindl/Lashoff and Cleary gone by game 1. I'd jump for joy. Quincey too but that ain't happening.

I'm still in disbelief that holland never upgraded the Defense, it's mind boggling. My mind is boggled!

I believe he takes a suitcase full of these when he goes to Vegas:




I clicked like on your post, but it felt wrong... Very wrong... And now I'm scared...

Damn it, I only have 1.1 billion... anyone want to pitch in?

Do not ever place in my head the image of Bettman in a thong again or I will force you into a Penguins jersey and leave you in Philly.


Ew.  Ew ewewewewewewewew.


The Las Vegas Thong and Dance?


My sincerest apologies. Although as the saying goes "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" so you shouldn't worry about seeing skimpy pics of Bettman- unless his Icloud account gets hacked that is.

Having a team in Vegas is great for those days when Bettman wants to get away from the wife. ;) "Honey I need to go check up on Vegas. What's that? Why am I packing so many thongs? Uh... Uh... Cab's here, gotta go"

#2535393 Who would you take in a shootout for the Wings?

Posted by wings87 on 02 September 2014 - 04:54 PM

Since the Wings forwards have shown that they can't score a shootout goal, I might as well go with Jimmy--who knows a thing or two about goals being scored. ;)

#2535215 potential team names for las vegas!

The Designated Drivers.

The High Rollers.

The Goodfellas.

The Stool Pigeons.

Or after a couple years they'll be simply know as a Bust.

So two years the league was in such bad shape that it was shutdown with the lockout, but now let's add 4 teams? The ineptitude is mind-boggling, either Bettman was dropped on his head as I child or someone should drop him on it now. 

#2533244 Hockey News: The 5 most evil hockey photoshops we could come up with

I could honestly say I would never EVER like crosby. Yes he is a very skilled player but there just is no way I like him even if he was on the wings. 

That's been said by many fans about many players, but when the goals start going in and the points are being racked up, like him or not it would be impossible not to root for him.

#2531985 Rule Changes in the AHL (what the NHL has considered)

Posted by wings87 on 14 July 2014 - 02:05 AM

I'll disagree with you since the tie has a long history in hockey, but I'll certainly agree with eliminating the 3 point system. You can see teams all season long hanging on, floating around until the end of regulation just to get one point. No points for losing teams. 
You didn't mention how you'd end a regular season game. No tie, no shootout....what does that leave you with?

Ties have a long history in the NHL, but it was changed for a reason. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't look forward to watching a 3 hour game just to see it end in a tie. Also going back to the old tie system, will cause the same issues as a 3 point game, it would allow teams to just hang on for that 1 point.
As far as how to end a regular season game goes, you play till someone wins. But with the 3 point game gone it would force teams to work harder so they don't have to play in OT.

The only other option I see would be to, first get rid of the loser point and then play a full 20 minute period before having a shootout.

#2531711 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by wings87 on 11 July 2014 - 10:19 PM

Remember after the '13 playoffs, and even though we had just dropped a 3-1 series lead against the hawks, thinking "well at least next year we can improve by not having Cleary on the team"....
Does Cleary not realize that he is making everybody hate him? He could have retired after that season and been remember as a warrior and contributor for his time with the Wings.
Now the only thing main thing people are are going to remember about him is this f***in debacle two years in a row.
He'll be remembered as the guy who made the wings worse because he was too selfish to just hang them up.
He better hope like hell that this isn't the year they miss the playoffs because he will be the scapegoat for a LONG time (as well as Holland, he hasn't thought about his impending legacy as the guy who f***ed up the great Red Wings either)

I don't hate Cleary as much as I hate Holland for making me hate a player I used to really like.

Maybe Cleary is married to Holland's sister

Maybe Cleary is his sister... Talk about a plot twist... Mind blown!

Posted by wings87 on 10 July 2014 - 10:50 PM

This is actually very sad because instead of being hated vehemently, Cleary should be celebrated for the hard-nosed player he used to be. But with this latest move Holland has turned him into a persona non grata.
