#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

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

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.

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.

Or an impression of the poll creators' knowledge of the history of the game.




#2531782 Rule Changes in the AHL (what the NHL has considered)

Posted by Euro_Twins on 12 July 2014 - 09:37 AM

I think the helmet one is dumb. If you're in your own end on a pk defending and someone checks you, knocks the helmet off, somehow you deserve a penalty because you don't want to leave your team even more shorthanded to go put the helmet back on or go back to the bench?


#2531055 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by Jesusberg on 10 July 2014 - 03:18 PM

I think the bottom line right now is that the perceived price for Green is a wee bit high - management (specifically Trotz) is maintaining that Green factors into their future plans. Posturing or not, it's being done to give the guy more value. I think the only way Detroit gets him right now is by prying him away from Washington via overpayment. If that means moving Tatar+, or any of the bigger names, count me out for now.

If Green could be had for, let's say, Andersson, Pulkkinen + 2nd that would be the maximum that I would want to pay, personally. And giving up that 2nd is scary, as Detroit is already without a 3rd rounder. That may not be enough in Washington's eyes, and it likely isn't right now. I actually like what Green brings, but he comes with a lot of risks - risks that should bring his price tag down. The issue is that the Caps don't have to move him right now, and Detroit is clearly desperate for a RH, offensive defender. At this moment, Washington has the leverage. IMO, it would be silly to make a move for Green until/if his price goes down some.




#2530441 What's best for Mantha?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 07 July 2014 - 02:52 PM

Euro...please see the post above yours...I am not bashing Canada in anyway or discrediting the Gold's....

 

What is with people being so combative today? Sheesh!  Babcock is the issue and Holland plays along.  If this is not the issue, then why are UFA's shunning us when they never used to?  Simple answer, Holland offers less money and players don't like Babcock.  If Babcock was such a super great coach and all players he won Gold with admire and long to play for him, then why are the ones that were UFA's the 8 years knocking on the door to get here?

 

...and yes, I would take that bridge! I could double the fee and make a little extra money!

 

You can't be serious....

 

You take extremely hard-lined stances on the most ridiculous, knee-jerk (doing my best to use polite words) opinions and then get all surprised and defensive when everybody (but Richdg or Degra55) disagrees with you.

 

It's like clockwork around here...




#2530266 MDZ close to signing with wings?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 06 July 2014 - 03:14 PM

I've seen this on several rumor sites, but nothing from known credible sources yet.  It's another case of "oh, this guy was once known for his offense and the Red Wings need a puckmover so... 1 + 1 =" kind of situation.  He might be able to find his game again in this system but I'd rather let one of the kids play unless MDZ comes as a 7th d-man and we trade Kindl.
