#2529125 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 01 July 2014 - 08:28 PM

Ken Hollands actions lately prove to me that he is/was not the great NHL GM that everyone said he was. He must have been just the face in front of the real brains that have now all left. Nill, Bowman, and Yzerman.

The Quincey signing will go down as one of his worst deals. Better to have done nothing then this. To be rejected by most UFA's is a big sign that the Wings are in big trouble. We are in for a long year(s) ahead

 

Holland did not build the 90's Cup teams. He didn't build the '02 team; he spent Illitch's money to maintain it. And he pulled a Joe Dumars in '08 (dumb luck).




#2529091 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by MotorCityMadness on 01 July 2014 - 08:02 PM

the only thing that is going to make up for this is a trade for a realistic number 1 D or a proven goal scorer or both because otherwise Holland is under fire and it will be a long offseason ass of right now especially if we don't resign alfie we would have possibly

 

 

 Z Dats Goose

 

Franzen Weiss Abby

 

Tats  Shehan   Jurco

 

Miller  Helm   Glendening

 

 

Kronwall  Big E

 

DD      Smith

 

Q     Kindl/lashoff

 

 

not a productive bunch especially with pending hurting players

 

How these guys are considered NHL Hockey players is beyond me




#2519234 Now some gritty forwards.

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 05 May 2014 - 06:42 AM

I made a list of RHed Dmen we should be taken a long look at and trying to get. So now I will do gritty forwards. None of these guys are goons. They a big guys that can skate, hit, and even score. Guys that play 10+ mins a game, some in the 15mins range. All are under 30, all make less than 4 million per season, and none are going to break the bank to pick up. So here are the guys I would take a long hard look at:

 

RW's:

Brouwer Wash 6-3/215

Setoguchi Win 6-0/200

Jones CGY 6-2/210

Kassian Van 6-3/215

Smith-Pelly Ana 6-0/225

 

LW's:

Martin NYI 6-3/210

Greening Ott 6-3/210

Bollig Chi 6-2/225

Clifford LAK 6-2/215

Kulemin Tor 6-1/225

Maroon Ana 6-3/230

 

C's:

Wingels SJ 6-0/200

Jenner CBL 6-2/205

Hanzel Phx 6-6/240

Smith Ott 6-2/215

Eller Mon 6-2/215

Nolan LAK 6-3/225

 

Setoguchi and Kulemin are UFA's, so we could just sign them. The others need to be traded for. I would LOVE to see us grab 2 guys off of this list, or find 2 guys that play the same type of game as these guys. Guys that skate, hit, play hard every shift and could net 10+ goals. We need the grit and size, as Boston clearly showed us.....

Franzen for Troy Brouwer.  Washington is the perfect fit for Franzen.

It was a great game, and until that final horn blew I was convinced USA was going to tie it. 

 

Really impressed by Carlson and Quick in todays game. 

 

Hope you guys take the photoshops in good fun...I'll happily do more at Canada's expense vs Sweden.

Wings need a solid dman. Tonight was exhibit A again. We don't need anymore firepower unless you want to start winning games 8-5. 




#2480404 The NHL reffing affecting the game

Posted by Playmaker on 02 February 2014 - 04:13 PM

I don't know what the call on Smith was, but it seemed more like interference than a trip.  It could have gone either way, and I would have preferred that it wasn't called being in OT an being a Wings fan, but it was.  It didn't give the Caps the game.  The failure of the Wings PK gave them the game.    A PP isn't or shouldn't be an automatic goal.  We know it sure wouldn't have been if the Wings got the PP.

 

Every fan of every sport thinks their sport has horrible officiating.  When you have humans making the calls with a split second to make a decision, things aren't always going to get called the way they maybe should. I think the fans are more biased than the officials which usually leads to the feeling that officiating is soooo terrible.  




#2480395 The NHL reffing affecting the game

Posted by stillwater on 02 February 2014 - 04:02 PM

There's no crying in hockey and I certainly don't believe in any referee bias. They miss things and sometimes let things go, but I don't believe it's based on bias.

Smith was called in OT because his trip directly led to (or would have led to) a Wings scoring chance.

You don't have to like it.

Am I missing something, that wasn't a trip?

Holland won't make a trade, you guys should know that by now.

#2469194 Howard on U.S. Olympic Roster

Posted by Yzermania on 31 December 2013 - 03:19 PM

He should say thanks but no thanks and get his s*** together for the team that signs his pay checks.


#2468385 Blockbuster deal?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 29 December 2013 - 11:27 PM

Howard is amazing for most of his career, has a bad stretch of games, and now people want his head. Unbelievable.


#2466135 Tom Wilson Hit on Brayden Schenn

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 19 December 2013 - 09:53 AM

 

No concussion, just neck strain. Tough kid

Of course he's tough….he was a Brandon Wheat King!   :nhl_crach:   The WHL toughens kids up and apparently gives them thick skin in their head region as well.  Hope he gets better soon, always been a big fan of his.




#2466504 Babcock's Job?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 20 December 2013 - 12:46 PM

Others have already pointed out the sound evidence that Babcock is one of if not the best coaches in the league.  And that's what it comes down to for me.  In terms of replacing him, I don't think there's a clear candidate that's better. 

 

Holland has been the most disappointing these last few seasons, not Babcock.
