#2536349 Ericsson and Alfredsson not 100%

Posted by darkmanx on 16 September 2014 - 05:40 PM

 

Wow that's a lot of taxes thats why you need a bunch of tax lawyers if you are that rich. If Alfie's back doesn't hold up anymore he should not risk injuring it further and just hang them up nothing against him, my favorite Senator of alltime.

 

Will be interesting to see if Jurco is ready to take the next step this season (I doubt it).

 

 

 

don't like that quote at all screams cocky :(

 

Screams confident to me.




#2536294 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

Posted by DickieDunn on 16 September 2014 - 12:24 PM

This is ALL on Holland.  He cannot continue to believe that players should take discounts because "We Are Detroit" or they are local kids.  The ONLY players that come here for discounts or re-sign here anymore are players that either have had their longer career's here or players that cannot get signed ny anyone else, plus, for some reason, Holland OVERPAYS his useless vet's and low-balls his top talented RFA's when the market dictates otherwise.  Danny D should get and deserves to get paid like comparable RFA defensemen out there PLUS get paid better than players that are WORSE than he is.  There is no way Danny D should deservedly get less money than Kindl, Quincey OR Ericsson.  Way to treat one of the ONLY players to choose Detroit over everyone else, even if it meant passing up better places to play.  Way to show this kid, who is arguably the best defenseman you have on the team (or don't have yet) that you intend to make him feel wanted for life.  I don't blame Danny if he just hold's out as long as it takes to get a deal, then split when he is a UFA.  Holland continues to prove to everyone that his priorities are out of whack.  He needs to give Danny a similar contract to Gardiner and then deal with waiving Q or K if it comes down to re-signing Alfie at an over-inflated contract.  Danny D is going to be the leader of the future D-Corps, now is not the time to sour your relationship with him...and I wouldn't doubt that behind closed doors, the relationship is going south...I only wish my buddy still dated his sister maybe I could get some inside thoughts on their opinions of Holland's negotiation tactics now! :lol:


DD is an undrafted player with less than a full season's worth of games played who has limited offensive upside and still has work to do defensively and getting stronger. Those aren't the guys you sign to 6 year $30 mil contracts.

Dekeyser will be locked up long term, just depends on when; Wings Brass basically know is is the 2nd best d man on the team behind Kronwall, if not the best, and due to the teams current situation with lack of stability at D, they cannot afford to let him walk.


Definitely not better than kronwall, and it's up for debate if he's even Ericsson level quite yet. But he's definitely going to be a top pair guy soon.

This is interesting....
 




KGrJA56V_normal.jpegThe Wheel Deal @Bill_Roose · 1h



With a logjam at centermen, #RedWings Mike Babcock said today that he plans to start Darren Helm at wing on Pavel Datsyuk's line.

 
So:
 
Z - Datsyuk - Helm
Franzen - Weiss - Nyquist
Tatar - Sheahan - Alfie? 
Abby - Glendening - Miller
 
Scratch - Andersson, Cleary




LOL people were mad about Abby up there? My god helm is an even worse idea with Abby. Look at the bright side? Helm will be injured quickly and jurco will then be called up!!!!


#2535268 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 31 August 2014 - 03:34 PM

You left out the part where you went running after him, pen and paper in hand, screaming "Danny, Danny!" trying to get an autograph.

 

We know how much you love your Danny Cleary.




#2535243 Alfie wants to play

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 30 August 2014 - 04:31 PM

I thought this thread was about Alfie?

Don't be ridiculous, all threads are about Cleary.


#2534274 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by Nightfall on 14 August 2014 - 05:23 PM

 

That's a pretty easy challenge for you to win considering you never really know who is on the market as a GM until they take a job somewhere.   :lol:

 

This is true to some extent.  However, lets look at some of the people whom some fans wanted as GM of the Wings instead of Holland.

 

Yzerman - So far, he has done well at Tampa Bay.  Their roster this year looks better than last year.  Except since he took over, they made the playoffs their first year, missed the second year and third year, and then made it last year only to get swept in the first round.  Better than Holland?  That remains to be seen.

 

Ray Shero would be the only guy I would even consider being GM of the Wings. 


Nothing screams job accountability like giving an extension to a guy that's gotten consistently worse at his job each year in the last 5 years.

 

That pizza selling vegetable Ilitch needs to sell the team to someone who still gives a s***.  


 

So you don't believe in job accountability?

 

Just because someone was good 10 years ago, shouldn't give them a pass to be lazy at their current job.  

 

If his job is to ensure that we have a competitive team that competes for a championship every season, he has achieved his goal.

 

If you are measuring accountability by championship or nothing, then there are 29 other GMs who are also failing.

#2533584 Confused on the direction of this team going forward

Posted by number9 on 02 August 2014 - 11:56 PM

Kronwall elite? No. Elite is the best of the best too many people throw elite around too much.

 

Kronwall finished 13th in Norris voting this year. That means he's ranked higher than 168 NHL D regulars among the theoretical 180. And that's on a team that was severely injured the entire season, with a weak D, and a goalie in a down year. If elite to you is top 10, cool. But that's good enough to me to not split hairs about it...

 

 




#2533538 Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

Posted by WingsallTheway on 02 August 2014 - 02:05 PM

Great. If PK is the building block for a 9M dollar contract, we can all prepare for our fourth consecutive lockout




#2533378 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by Son of a Wing on 30 July 2014 - 03:01 PM

I'm thinking it will be roughly the same amount that Gardiner had signed for...Nothing against Gardiner, but of the 2 players - DD, and Gardiner - who's played a greater role for their respective team?

 

Gardiner?  He plays in every situation, ranked 2nd among his entire team in minutes/game and is relied on heavily for his offense and puck moving ability.

 

Dekeyser is a good player who we need but Gardiner plays a much larger role on his team.




#2533263 Hockey News: The 5 most evil hockey photoshops we could come up with

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 29 July 2014 - 08:42 AM

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.

Impossible for you maybe..yes..Not for me. Sorry buddy. I would never like him. EVER. I would be happy if the wings won more with him sure but there is no way I like him as a player. I guess being older your feelings stick a bit easier because you start to get the "I don't give a crap" attitude.

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 28 July 2014 - 11:45 PM

 

The same could be said if he ever made his way to Detroit. 

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.

Now the glass and boards at the JLA can sleep easy knowing that Sammy won't be around to hurt them anymore.
