#2531285 Who has been Ken Holland's worst recent free agent signing?

Posted by Number19 on 10 July 2014 - 06:18 PM

I liked Modano, it's a shame it didn't work out/freak injury. You take a chance on a future hall of famer. Tootoo was an interesting idea, but the rest were garbage from the beginning.




#2531155 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Number19 on 10 July 2014 - 04:21 PM

I have to wonder, doesn't Holland talk to Babcock and the other members of the team before signing off on s*** like this??? doesn't anyone actually speak up to stop this lunacy??????

Sadly reports are it was Babcock behind bringing back Cleary last year so I doubt he has much of a problem with this. "Clears" is his boy for life. Look I was a huge Cleary fan too, but after the massive tolls on his body he just isn't what he used to be out there. Even Homer was a better skater at 38/39 than Cleary is now.

I can't believe Tatar thought it was a good idea to stick-handle like that in those conditions (unless you're the Magic Man). The last two Leafs were smart to wrist it without much fuss.

Awesome stuff, I'm happy to get to see Stevie on skates for maybe the last time. He didn't look too hot out there but it was still Stevie (I believe him when he says he hasn't skated since he retired). :tounge2: Sergei on the other hand still looks NHL caliber. Him and Slava skated circles around people out there. Mickey looked great too!




#2429830 Blues hire Conklin as development coach

Posted by Number19 on 12 July 2013 - 07:32 PM

For a couple years he was among the best backups in the league. Too bad it didn't work out the second time around.




#2427604 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Posted by Number19 on 05 July 2013 - 05:36 PM

Cool, he's old but hungry and a righty. Does the bonus count against the cap? Maybe he can convince Lidstrom to comeback. ;)

Anyone's opinion of Toews changed this series? I never knew him to be such a whiny brat. Great leader that guy. On another note reports of Kane maturing seem to be true. I can't remember one problem I had with him all series.

This isn't as gut-wretching defeat as I thought it'd be. It the back of mind I never really thought we had a Cup winning team this year and I doubt most did (at least until we were 3-1 up on Chicago then I guess you can start thinking about it) I think it was a success to make the playoffs this year, the 2nd round was a bonus. The young players made strides this year and I'm excited about our future. I hope we cut the deadweight and make good decisions this off season. We can be a contender as soon as next season. Looking back I think we could be proud of our boys to push the number 1 seed to a game seven and look at this season as a vital building block for the next generation of Red Wing success.

So basically list an all-star team?

Loved Mike. Wish his time here would've turned out better.

Posted by Number19 on 20 May 2013 - 09:51 PM

I'm starting to get really excited about this team. If we get Danny D and dare I say Helm :ninja: back the sky is the limit. I don't know how they're doing it because we've had so many rosters filled with way more talent but they're doing it.

The Hawks are making themselves out to be the victims here.  This is BS.

 

Now these retards are going to get all the calls next game (like this one) as make up calls for the disallowed goal.  

 

Screw this media bias.

Guess we'll just have to kick their ass again. (put Tootoo in pls)




#2408565 WCSF Game 3 GDT - Blackhawks 1 @ Red Wings 3 - (DET leads series 2-1)

Posted by Number19 on 20 May 2013 - 09:44 PM

Agreed.  Nice name, by the way.

 

Thanks, still doesn't feel right them winning without him. :tounge:

Hard to feel sorry for Chicago, they also got about as easy a goal as you can get before that. That whole play was f****** stupid I could feel it happening as soon as Franzen went down. Just feels weird being on the other end of a call like that.

I don't know about you guys but that no goal looked like a goal to me lol. w/e I'll take it, Homer got boned from so many of those calls and Datsyuk sealed it anyway.

Alfie's goal was amazing.
