#2528960 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by datterberg1340 on 01 July 2014 - 06:46 PM

Holy. Hell.


I thought they weren't even considering bringing him back, let alone giving him a raise


figured they would've at least tried some other options first, not just give up after the first day and settle for a guy who clearly isn't what we need in the top 4


on top of a crappy work day, this just.... sucks

So, Holland fails miserably and his fallback is to give a raise to a d-man no other team wanted to sign early in free agency? He's the most predictable and non-risk taking GM in professional sports right now.

I haven't been on the bandwagon before, but today I'm there. Ken Holland needs to go.

The bottom pairing was the issue. Not Q. Quincey and Dekeyser were actually very solid together. Sure he is overpaid, but it's free agency. Everyone is. People really need to chill. Other UFA's didn't want to come here. Get over it. 

Except isn't Q headed for the 3rd pairing? 


Kronwall - Ericsson

Dekeyser - Smith

Kindl + Quincey





If you don't see the second bolded part as an issue... something to worry or fret or freakout over... Well, then I don't know what to say.

Damn you Kenny Holland...you offered better contracts but didn't do some kind of voodoo s*** to get guys to come here....seriously, WTF do you want Holland to do?   He made better or equal offers and lost players to teams that are no better or worse than we are. 


What exactly should he do? 


I want Holland to do his job well.  He's been flailing over the last several years.   The reason they're not coming here is because players aren't excited at the prospect of playing for the Red Wings anymore.  That's on Holland.


No one is saying his job isn't extremely difficult, but it's that way for 29 other GM's.  As I said in another thread, replace Holland's name with Dan Cleary.  Cleary outworks just about everyone on the team which is admirable but he simply doesn't get the results to be competitive at the NHL level.  


Is that acceptable because he's a great guy who's trying with everything he's got?   


I don't care how hard Holland tried.  Results matter.  He's not getting any.

Not a fan of Burke but the man gets things done, Calgary went from a small soft team to now the toughest team in the NHL:


McGrattan, Engelland, Westgarth and Bollig wow :clap:


And it's not going to do them a lick of good in the West.

#2528504 Wings sign Kevin Porter to 1-year, 2-way contract

Posted by AtomicPunk on 01 July 2014 - 03:30 PM

I heard he also got a no trade clause.

#2527188 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 30 June 2014 - 12:15 PM

Plus Mckenzie I think tweeted we are on Boyles top five list.


Probably because he's hoping for a raise and a NTC.

Ok...I'm officially ready for July 1, and beyond.

#2524598 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Son of a Wing on 19 June 2014 - 01:57 PM

Well, seeing as Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Franzen and Kronwall are all a year older and on the unhappy side of 30 expecting them to carry the team is becoming less and less feasible. Couple that with Nyquist likely not exploding this year, Sheahan returning to form and Tatar putting up similar numbers as he did last season and finally the the defense being mediocre they could easily be worse than last year.

You're always such a ray of sunshine.

I know I know...you're a realist...

#2522909 Dan Boyle's rights traded to the Islanders…..

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 05 June 2014 - 03:45 PM

I hope he signs so there is no chance the Wings end up with him


How comes?


Too old? Or more the fact that KH will probably sign him to a 3 year deal?

Posted by Jesusberg on 05 June 2014 - 03:41 PM

I still want him here, but trading a 5th (possibly 4th) for an impending, 38-year-old UFA... uh huh. Sounds like a Garth Snow move.

I hope Charter picks it up.

#2519637 So what do we have to trade?

Ship off Howard, bring in Miller, give it 40 games next season before the "Miller = Average" thread goes up. He's aging, he isn't what he used to be. He wasn't that good in the playoffs this year, his numbers leave something to be desired. He'd come here, play about on par, maybe slightly better than Howard, but people will realize how much more of an impact the defense makes (if it is not much improved) over the quality of the goaltender. I think a lot of people cling onto how he was 5 years ago, the kind of goalie he was in the Olympics, the NHL superstar goalie, that isn't the Miller we'd be overpaying for and i'd rather see the money go into a better defenseman over a very mild upgrade over Howard for a much bigger contract.


It's honestly just my opinion, i've been wrong before, we all have at one point, but I think the focus is solely defense first and maybe one quality winger.
