#2682042 Who do you have as the top 5 Wings of all time..

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 03 July 2016 - 09:05 AM

When the whole hockey world calls you "Mr. Hockey" I'm pretty sure you belong at the top of the list.

#2682005 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

The irony of Internet Unknown posting that amuses me.

 

Dude, I disable Javascript on this site because it keeps crapping out in Firefox otherwise. The " " mess isn't something I typed.

But good call coming down on me and not the clown that can't find the period button.

What a joke of signing Kenny needs to go freaking idiot why are we signing D's retreads that's why we will never win anything what about Jimmy's contract no one is gonna take that abomination

 

Punctuation, how does it work?


#2681901 Steve Ott signs 1 year, $800k deal with Detroit

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 02 July 2016 - 10:13 AM

 

I'm just someone who hates players that can't do anything but fight. 

 

You must've been watching someone other than McCarty then.
 

 
But...but...but... I thought only the "all-stars" were responsible for winning?
 
I sense that shocky will never truly understand just how wrong he is on this subject.

 

He also would've hated watching Probert and Kocur in the good ol' days, sheesh.

No s*** if we drafted a top 3 player they'd be playing but just because we don't doesn't mean every prospect has to wait 4 years in the minors .... Your telling me Tatar wasn't ready after 3 years In Grand Rapids?nyquist? Don't tell me they weren't ready

It's quite obvious Detroit has always preferred the veterans over younger talent ... Just look what they did now , they signed ott who hasn't been relevant in 7 years , signed vanek on the decline after they said mantha would be given every opportunity to make this team ( we both know that's not happening especially with Miller AND helm being resigned as well )

Ouellet is another kid who could of played last season but waited another year cause we give wastes like Ericsson longterm deals
First? The way this team is headed that can end up being a top 5 pick , no way we can touch it now

 

Some nights Tats and Gus aren't ready now. Good grief. Those two are small, soft complimentary players. With any luck we'll be able to move one of them in a package for a good defenseman before Oct 13.

Too young lmao I wish f*** I remember all those scraps and more

Those 4 you named were hall of famers and pretty sure Zetterberg and datsyuk started at 21-23 so I wouldn't compare them , no ones saying Tatar and nyquist are superstars or mantha will be a hall of famer the fact is we tend to always play veterans more than some kids who can actually play cause we've just always preferred playing the vet over the kid

 

Then you should get this. When the Wings have young guys that can play, they play. When they have low draft picks that need seasoning, they are sent to the minors to to develop. You made my point for me. You're so focused on the overripe buzzword that you're missing the forest for the trees.

If the Wings drafted higher, if they drafted players with better natural, God-given talent, they wouldn't have to "overripen" kids. Larkin proved this. But if a kid has to spend 3-4 years in the AHL to develop, then, yeah, he's got to prove he can play in the NHL before he's promoted to full-time duty.

Pretty much our lineup will look like this:

Larkin - Z - Abdelkader
Nyquist - Nielsen - Vanek
Helm - She - Tatar
Miller - LG - Ott
Jurco
AA and Mantha = Grand Rapids

DeKe - Kronwall
Errorson - Green
Smith - Marchenko
Ouellet

 

I suspect a trade will be made for D help involving Nyquist or Tatar, so AA or Mantha (maybe both) will be up with the big club.


#2681714 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 01 July 2016 - 05:00 PM

Why would folks complain about the Vanek signing? People were suggesting we sign Staal to a "show me" deal. Isn't the same kind of deal Vanek just got? Short term, fairly low money. Let's see if Vanek wants to earn more in 17/18.

Assuming it will look something like this

Zetterberg nielson abdelkader

Athanasiou Larkin vanek

Helm sheahan Tatar/nyquist

Miller glendening ott

Or switch vanek with Tatar/nyquist

Knowing Ken holland and his bulls*** overripe Anthony mantha wil be in Grand Rapids regardless of anything he says to the media unless he's stupid enough to trade him


That will leave

Jurco pulkkinen frk nyquist/Tatar and I'm assuming jurco/frk will be 13th forward

Pulkkinen is gone ... Frk or jurco as well , I just hope none are through waivers and mantha is in Grand Rapids 100% unless he's dealt or Tatar and nyquist are both dealt which seems unlikely

So seems the wings keep on giving nothing to the kids ... Just the way holland loves it

 

Get a grip. "Over-ripe" is a euphemism for "isn't good enough." Look at Larkin. He played for the Wings as a 19-year-old rookie because he was good enough to do so.


#2681448 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 01 July 2016 - 01:23 PM

 

Eriksson and okposo didn't want to come here. Is there anyway to sticky this so people understand Holland just can't sign anyone, there is 29 other teams.

6 million apparently gets you a 40-50 point 2 way center.

Also sticky THE OWNER AND MANAGEMENT WANT THE STREAK TO CONTINUE.

I don't think Yzerman would have been savior either. This team has been declining for 6 years and we need to stop duct taping this team together for the sake of a meaningless streak. The problem is Ilitch wants a competitive team when the pizzarena opens up so I don't see us blowing things up for another couple of years.

 

"Meaningless streak."

The owner and GM disagree with you.

I've heard that a lot but where is a proof of that? Wings are risking to turn into the Leafs or Canucks who for the longest time refused to rebuild. Vancouver still doesn't see the Eriksson signing.

If the order is indeed from Mr I than you are right Holland must follow the orders.

If they bring in some bought out guys in the hope they'll regain their form this team might as well get used to first round exits for a long time.

 

Proof is the Legwand trade.
Proof is re-signing middle of the road players.
Proof is striking out on Suter/Parise and Stamkos and then signing other teams' second tier vets.
Proof is over-ripening supposed can't-miss prospects like Mantha.
Proof is not committing to a genuine youth movement.

I really hope the Red Wings birthday presents to me aren't just a Nielsen signing and resigning of Helm and Marchenko.


Happy birthday!
