#2530446 Article on FAs and Red Wings

Posted by AtomicPunk on 07 July 2014 - 03:14 PM

I'm not trying to turn this into a "City" topic but I think that is something that cannot totally been ruled out. We live here, we know better. But what has the national media done? Very superficial headlines, Anthony Bourdain's special about the crumbling city, for someone out of town and they only get headlines about Detroit and they hear "the biggest city ever to declare bankruptcy", Kwame trial, oldest building in the NHL things like that, makes the city look bad. I know there are people rebuilding the city block by block and we have a new mayor and a new arena planned and reasons to be optimistic, but to an outsider considering a move here with his family, he doesn't know how lush the suburbs are that he will be moving his family to, he doesn't know about the great golf course right down the street from his house, he just sees the thing on the news that says Detroit is bankrupt and the Big 3 need bailing out and like it or not, it puts a negative light on the city.

 

Like I said, we live here, we know better. But I recently turned down a promotion that would have put me in Oakland, CA. Because on the news and reality shows they showed a lot of violence and gang warfare there and I said, I don't think so. And this is coming from someone from DETROIT since 1983! Perception is sometimes stronger than reality.




#2529322 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

It all depends on what you expect. If you expect the Red Wings to be equal or worse than the Minnesota Wild, then you're ok. (actually the Wild was better than them last year.)

 

If you hope for them to win the Stanley Cup or go to the Finals, then you're disappointed. We saw this team barely make the playoffs last year, I can't expect there to be a dramatic improvement with the same ingredients.

"I don't know why they don't want to come here." = Ken Holland, July 1, 2014

 

Is he talking about free agents or Joe Louis Arena in October and November?




#2529310 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by AtomicPunk on 02 July 2014 - 07:38 AM

Is it July 1 or April 1? Please tell me this is a joke.

Soccer is more exciting than free agent day in Detroit. At least in soccer, there is a CHANCE your team is going to score.

 

Happy July 1, everybody.




#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.

Admission - last year was the first year I did not go to Joe Louis to see a game since 1983. (Steve Yzerman's first game)

Reason - I did not feel the Wings organization was doing their best to put a the best possible team on the ice. Early indications are that I may not be going to the Joe this year either.




#2527385 UFA day looking up

Posted by AtomicPunk on 30 June 2014 - 08:12 PM

Looking at capgeek there are like a million options this years at D.

 

Boyle

Pitkanen

Volchenkov

Gleason

Meszaros

Ehrhoff

Salo

Orpik

Mitchell

Schultz

Tallinder

Robidas

Morris

Del Zotto

Niskanen

McBain

Stralman

Butler

Murray

Fayne

Falk

Gilbert

Corvo

Ellerby

Engelland

 

Wouldn't be surprised if Holland looked for a bargain deal outside of Boyle, Niskanen, and Ehrhoff

It's like a Scottish restaurant, lots to choose from, nothing you want.




#2524258 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

Posted by AtomicPunk on 17 June 2014 - 01:46 PM

This madness needs to end. Seriously. Realize you made a mistake and walk away. 

To bring back players that are obviously not what this team needs makes me want to scream! 

 

At Holland.

 

 

In his face.




#2517662 Was Legwand worth it?

Posted by AtomicPunk on 27 April 2014 - 02:58 PM

No, not in the way he was used. If he was moved up to be a #1 or #2 line center, OK, but he was used as just another grinder when he obviously has more skill than that.

Wouldn't these be better placed in the "Rumors" section?
