In Topic: Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

I have no love bubble for Helm. I have no personal dislike for the guy either.

 

And I'm so sorry, by the way. When I asked for proof of Helm's softness I really thought you were just quoting hearsay and clubhouse rumors. Little did I know that you source was Manny Legace's father in law!!!!! I feel so silly for second guessing you.

 

And believe it or not, just because one person that's about 3-4 people removed from you says Helm is a puss, that doesn't make it true. And when you were unloading your pessimitic rant on all of us it certainly seemed to me like you were presenting it as fact.

 

Ferris Bueller's third cousin's BFF's hamster said it saw Darren Helm pass out at 31 Flavors ... and that he's a *****.*

 

*This is no way discredits my belief that Helm is sadly made of glass.

You are aware he offered a ton of money for Niskanen and more than Boyle received from the Rangers? Just because Holland doesn't know why free agents aren't coming here doesn't mean he hasn't been trying.

Besides, how do you not classify Quincey as an overpriced UFA?

 

Review Barrie's posts. He continually claims that Holland doesn't sign overpriced free agents but never admits that Holland *tries* to sign said free agents. I've called him on it at least twice. Barrie might be a mushroom in Ken Holland's basement.


In Topic: Confused on the direction of this team going forward

People here seem to forget there's a Salary Cap. I think it's obvious Holland is building through the draft, and won't overpay for UFA's. Teams that build through the draft win Championships, teams that sign over priced UFA's don't.

 

Hindsight is always 20/20 vision, after the 2009 playoffs if Holland signed Hossa over Franzen there would have been a riot! Hossa was a letdown in the playoffs, while Franzen had 12 goals, and 13 the year before. I think based on what both players make, and the points they've put up, Franzen vs. Hossa has been a wash.

 

You keep making this claim as if it's fact while ignoring the truth. Holland has offered numerous UFA's "overpayments" over the last few seasons. For various reasons the targeted players have signed elsewhere. This isn't a win for Holland. He wanted these UFA's. He offered them big (sometimes BIGGER) money. He has also signed Q and Clearly to overpriced contracts in the last month.

I remember when hockey players listened to rock. God, I'm old.

No you're right, Oates was the probably the all time worst.

I was only 3 at the time, so the other ones just pissed me off more :P.

 

Egads, I'm not going to reveal how old *I* was at the time of the Oates trade. :)


 

The Oates trade was definitely worse. 

 

 

 

Don't forget Adam Graves, Klima and Sharples for Jimmy Carson. 

 

The Wings don't have a great track record when it comes to trading guys named Adam. 

 

Don't forget Kevin McClelland. He came along with Carson. What a bargain!
