UGH. I hate what this re-signing has done to people's (myself included) perception of Cleary. That video just made me want to hug him and beg him to retire.

Also, did anyone else notice he referred to himself as "Danny?" :lol:

I HATE the signing, but after watching tons of Wings videos this summer, I must say if Cleary was as good a player as he is a person, he would win the Hart Trophy this season.  I truly hope he proves us all wrong and has a bounce back season. 

 

Bettman is still the Anti-Christ.  Nothing that man does at this point can undo the wrongs that happened under his rule.

Dan Cleary accepted the challenge.  I like that he put up the info for donating online.  I haven't seen anyone do that yet.

#2534230 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by Jesusberg on 14 August 2014 - 10:48 AM

I honestly don't think the guy is a bad general manager - he's proven just the opposite over the years. I just think some aspects of the game have passed him by - namely making moves and having a good relationship with other general managers.

That being said, results are results. Regardless of his intentions, Holland hasn't made too many impact moves of late. The ones he's tried to make haven't turned out well. I'm not overly thrilled with the term, but I guess we'll see how it goes. Bonus is if this gets Babs to sign on for some term, otherwise it's kind of "meh" for me.




#2534213 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 14 August 2014 - 09:22 AM

Honestly, I'm disappointed.  

 

Holland has pretty clearly run out of ideas these last few seasons, so I don't have a lot of hope for significant changes to rebuild the franchise over the next 4 years.  

 

Who knows though. Maybe he'll finally realize the crap he's done lately isn't working? Maybe??  

 

 

If I were Babcock I'd start looking to other teams.




#2534069 Helmer: First one to get a herniated disc in the new Season?

Posted by AtlantaHotWings on 12 August 2014 - 08:16 AM

Well the old way was just getting him hurt so why not try a different training trick?

 

 

Or we can see it as he is healthy and that's a good thing(trying to be positive)




#2533974 Greatest Wings game ever

Posted by Copenhagen848 on 10 August 2014 - 02:32 PM

March 26, 1997.  The most exciting sporting event I've ever watched.  I can't imagine a game ever topping that one for me.  My wife got me the "Sweet Revenge" poster framed and signed by McCarty for me as a wedding present.




#2533932 Greatest Wings game ever

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 09 August 2014 - 07:41 AM

Hockey withdrawal symptoms have reached a point of catastrophy. To alleviate these symptoms I'm watching the entire 97 cup run and will spend most of September watching the 98 run also.

 

This got me thinking. If you could name one Wings game that you saw that was in your opinion the greatest game you've ever seen, what would it be?

 

For me it's game 6 2002 WCF vs the Avalanche because it just demonstrated just how dominant Hasek really was and Roy's gaffe was such a beautiful moment. Even better that it virtually cost the Avs another shot at the cup. I just remember being so elated with joy after seeing us stick it to Colorado. That series and that rivalry had so much passion and intensity and I can still hear Gary Thorne's voice as Shanny put the puck past a showboating Roy.

 

What about anyone else?




#2533113 Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

Posted by Echolalia on 28 July 2014 - 10:02 AM

Hmm I guess my predictions will be:

 

Smith still has a few brain-farts, but he becomes a LGW favorite this season.  Babs gives him an opportunity on the power play, and he doesn't give it up.

Cleary plays 10 games and is benched for the rest of the season.  He then finally calls it a career.

Weiss plays 50-60 games, looks much better than he did last year, but still not as good as he could be (and LGW expects).  He becomes the new whipping boy.

Howard has top 10 stats, half of LGW still argues that he's average.

Gustavsson is often injured, and when he plays he is out of position, loses sight of the puck, fumbles the puck in the crease, and will somehow still win us games.

Mrazek will play 10-15 games for the Wings this season, and look good in every game.

Wings will go on a 3 game losing streak, LGW will implode. 

Wings will go on a 3 game winning streak, LGW will believe this team is as good as the 2002 team.




#2533106 Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

Posted by rick zombo on 28 July 2014 - 07:41 AM

My predictions?

 

Half the roster is injured by November and they barely scrape into the playoffs again.

 

That's pretty advanced analysis. Did you use corsi for this?

#2533368 Samuelsson signs new contract....... with Djurgarden.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 July 2014 - 01:07 PM

 

Probably lol, there was also logo hunter and shinpad assassin.

 

Of course Sammy isn't AS bad as Williams, who IMO was the worst forward ive seen play for the DRW since the lockout. That said, Sammy was a whole different breed of bad this season. His poor play even translated into GR, where he managed -4 in 2 games.

 

Are you currently dating Mark Mowers by any chance?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 29 July 2014 - 02:51 PM

As fun as it is to bash on Sammy, I'll never forget him for starting and finishing this play:

 

 

Also the two opening goals in Game 1 of the 2008 Finals against the Pens.

 

And the hundreds of logo shots.

 

Agreed.

 

All shin pad assassin jokes aside, Sammy was a bargain during his first stay here in Detroit.   He had good size, was irritating to play against, and put up good numbers for his salary. 

 

It's just unfortunate that Holland keeps repeating the mistake of bringing back former players, but I hold no ill will for Sammy.
