#2317322 How bad are we if our roster is now finalized?

Posted by Red Crazy on 09 July 2012 - 01:01 PM

I agree. That is not a playoff team. Add in an injury or two along the way and that team could be in big trouble. I am starting to panic a bit but if this is the team that Ken Holland is "happy with" to start the season then perhaps he should go.


#2315556 The Ever-Increasing Cap, Ridiculous Contracts, and Hitting

Posted by Red Crazy on 05 July 2012 - 09:04 AM

The owners and players are going to handcuff themselves yet with these huge contracts. I for one think that the league should reject all contracts over 5 years. Players would then have to earn their paychecks based on performance not by ufa class. The owners would also have to use their heads when signing contracts. Suter and Parise are not worth anywhere near the money they got. Crosby signed a long term when one more hit could end his career. Players are greedy and the owners are stupid. have we really gone anywhere since the last lockout?


#2312393 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

This is a good signing for those that have a Samuelsson jersey collecting dust in the closet. Sorry thats the best I 've got. ( being positive )


#2312103 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by Red Crazy on 01 July 2012 - 05:37 PM

new fan favorite right here.


He will be you wait! If he hits everything in sight like he used to this may not be that bad. but as far as Sammy goes...did Kenny lose a bet?


#2312052 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by Red Crazy on 01 July 2012 - 05:29 PM

One of our roster guys is being traded. is Nash on the way?


#2312008 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by Red Crazy on 01 July 2012 - 05:17 PM

3m per and a no trade wtf!


#2311995 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by Red Crazy on 01 July 2012 - 05:16 PM

WHY?


#2311942 Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

Posted by Red Crazy on 01 July 2012 - 04:21 PM

I will never ever forgive Kyper if this is wrong.


#2311515 Paul Gaustad re-signs with Predators

Posted by Red Crazy on 30 June 2012 - 07:56 PM

If this is what this type of player will demand. I hope Kenny sticks with the high end guys and lets the young guys fill out the roster. Gaustad is not worth that much money for what he brings to the table.


#2311435 D Justin Schultz signs with Oilers

Posted by Red Crazy on 30 June 2012 - 02:57 PM

Edmonton likely offered him top 2 ice time ( their defense is that bad ) Edmonton will not make the playoffs again this year and they will fire yet another coach.


#2311236 The Grass Is Always Greener - Johan Franzen

Posted by Red Crazy on 29 June 2012 - 06:23 PM

So if those saying that Franzen's contract is not that bad then he should be easy to unload right? Franzen is lazy. He is not streaky. But hey if he is so great and his contract is so good I say dump his ass and get someone that cares. For the same money Doan is available.


#2310540 Shane Doan to test free agency

Posted by Red Crazy on 27 June 2012 - 06:52 PM

I've always had the sort of love/hate thing with Doan watching him play. He plays on the edge, and often over it. But the guy's a competitor and has strapped his team on his back time and time again in the playoffs. That's hard not to like.

I have to say though, I lost respect for him not for his antics in the handshake line with LA, but his whining in the lockerroom about the officials being against the Coyotes. He sounded like a bitter fan, not the captain. I have a feeling Tippet used an "everybody is against us" mentality to motivate his team, but it might have created an air of victimhood too.

It's one thing for Smith, who's just another insane goalie, but I was just surprised to hear Doan say things like that.


I think if givin a chance Doan would take those comments back in a heart beat. I would take a player that gives a s*** over one that isnt interested in the regular season 10 times out of 10.


#2310220 Parise Likely Out. Next Options

Posted by Red Crazy on 26 June 2012 - 08:28 PM

Semin and Doan for the same money as Parise? Tough call but I lean towards Semin and Doan for sure. 9-10 is way too much $


#2310210 Shane Doan to test free agency

Posted by Red Crazy on 26 June 2012 - 08:08 PM

If Doan does in deed leave the Yotes he will pick a team that he has the most chance of getting a cup before he retires. I would be really surprised to see him sign until all the July 1st dust has settled and he can make his choice then. He is exactly what the Wings need. He is a great guy that wears his heart on his sleeve and plays at 120% every night.


#2295192 25 Games for Torres

Posted by Red Crazy on 21 April 2012 - 11:33 AM

That must have included 5 games that were Webers? I have seen much worse in these playoffs so I would say a bit harsh. 10 would have been right and I hate Torres. Ashams was way worse I think.
