It'll be called The Octopus's Garden and shaped like Ringo's head.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: the Stars and Bolts are going to be terrifyingly good in a few years. I'm not just saying that to say it. Nill and Yzerman mean business.

Any trade for a proven top 4 d-man will center around Nyquist or Mantha.

Not really...


Again - I'm beating a rotting dead horse carcass...


Buffalo fleeced Montreal with Josh Gorges - costing them a 2nd round draft pick.


Gorges would easily be a top 3 Dman in Detroit.

Unlike these other GM's, Holland has something called immunity.


Immunity at one's job makes one not have to take risks.  Holland isn't going to overpay someone (unless it's Quincey or Samuelsson).  


Holland knows Ilitch isn't going to do anything to him.  So does everyone else here.

You're assuming Kenny would actually pull the trigger on a trade of any kind.


Good point. 


Honestly, at this point I'd let Quincey go, I'd let Alfie go, and I'd fill every available spot with a kid.  At least keep the damage to a minimum.  Don't make it worse by making panic moves (see:  Samuelsson, Legwand, etc.).

...not unless there is a trade to be had, but hell, even Buffalo and Florida are getting better...



Kenny, nobody cares that its Detroit, Original 6, Storied Franchise, Rich History...they aren't going to come here for less money and they aren't going to come here to lose.  You failed this team over and over and over again. You failed these fans...you haven't won crap without a Scotty Bowman influenced team...Even Lidstrom recognized this and left us...



Holland needs to step up NOW and tell Niskanen...$8M, 7 years...let's do this! And show the entire NHL that he is serious about making this city THE only logical choice for UFA's... I feel so bad for Datsyuk....Zetterberg should ask for a trade.  He will rot here for the rest of his contract if he doesn't get out now...

and yet holland did offer boyle and ehrhoff better contracts, yet they still went somewhere else.


panicking and massively overpaying for niskanen would be a huge mistake. i say roll with the kids and see what happens at this point

Dallas is making moves, trying to improve, and players aren't refusing to sign there.


Tampa Bay is making moves, trying to improve, and players aren't refusing to sign there.


Am I sensing a theme?


People who know history know that Holland didn't build those late 90's Cup teams. He spent to maintain them (02) after they had been built by Bowman and his predecessors. Furthermore, Holland was lucky in 08 and 09. (See Joe Dumars for reference). Having the best defenseman in a generation (along with prime Dats and Z) can do that to an organization. He didn't build the Wings championships and he sure as hell can't build them now.


People shouldn't be complaining about getting fleeced in the Legwand deal. The team got fleeced in losing Yzerman and Nill.


As I said before, Holland is like a trust fund baby that ends up blowing all the money he was given.  He's withered this team down into mediocrity.  


Unfortunately, our owner is senile and is eating peanuts at Tiger games.  

#2527476 UFA day looking up

Posted by Shaman on 30 June 2014 - 11:39 PM


He's not coming back. Ok? We'll never know if it's PR spin or not. You have ur Red Wings live in fantasy land opinion, I have a different one, but at the end of the day the loser is gone so lets just be happy about it.


On a two way contract I'd take him!


I would not take him on a two way contract


I would not take him with a missing contact


I would not take him with Megan Fox


I would not take him with two pet rocks


I would not take him Shaman I am


I would not take that defensive sham.

#2526598 NHL Draft 2014: Rounds 2-7 **MOD WARNING POST 51**

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 28 June 2014 - 11:55 AM

Oh darn, a 6'5 LW....  He's way too big :lol:  And he got 39 points in 33 games last season. 


We haven't seen a draft pick under 6'0 in almost 2 drafts.

Good thing you don't represent anyone but yourself. It's unfortunate we have fans like you.


Do us a favor and cheer for another team because things didn't go your way.


The sad thing is that things haven't had a chance to go any way since the free agency period is still 3 days away.  I mean, Holland has already done his due diligence and met with the Agents of Niskanen and Boyle, plus unnamed other/s.  He's doing what he's supposed to at this point, so why don't we wait until a little down the line to start throwing tantrums, right?


Also, last off-season, he arguably made two solid moves getting Weiss and Alfie.  Weiss had a bad year with injuries, and Alfie was a solid addition.

I like him already...

#2523900 Wings sign Tomas Nosek to 2 year entry level deal

Posted by Shinzaki on 14 June 2014 - 08:41 PM

Yep..if you wear that winged wheel...I root for you...even Franzen. 


Tatar...Nosek...Juurco.  The "Czeching Line"

#2523110 Kesler still wants a trade.....

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 07 June 2014 - 10:53 AM

The price tag will still be too high, unless they are willing to take Franzen as the main piece.

#2438558 Report: NHL to have 5 outdoor games in 2014-15.

Posted by frankgrimes on 23 September 2013 - 01:37 PM

Hey NHL how about this 15 outdoor games a year so all franchises are getting their NOVEL game, this league the board of governors and the PR are the biggest joke either. Instead of locking out the players one should lockout the leagues frontoffice, because they don't care about integrity nor tradition. our beloved game is going downhill fast.

So it took how many seasons for the league to take a really unique and cool event and completely make it run of the mill?
