#2312914 Free Agency LIVE CHAT

Posted by RedWingsRox on 02 July 2012 - 07:35 PM

Free agency day isn't what it used to be ... like last year and this year, the big fish always take a couple of days to make their decision. In years past, it felt like many big signings were right on July 1st. Now twittersphere superficially generate suspense and interest.


#2312854 Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

Posted by RedWingsRox on 02 July 2012 - 12:33 PM

Franzen and Hudler for Ryan? Do you think Ducks would take that?

Oh damn, a bit too late for that ... if only we thought of this earlier.

#2311869 Red Wings Sign G Jonas Gustavsson to 2-year deal, $1.5M/yr

Posted by RedWingsRox on 01 July 2012 - 02:45 PM

Well, I am one of those that thought Joey Mac was a great backup and surprised that we didn't sign him and instead picked up the Monster. I don't think we need to push Jimmy, before his injury, he was the goalie with the most wins for a long stretch of the season. Hell, wasn't he an alternate in the All-Stars? That's why I thought JMac would be a solid backup. Some goalies don't need to always worry about losing the net after one or two bad outings, that actually shakes their confidence. I hope this doesn't send the wrong message to Jimmy management don't trust him or something. And $1.5 mill/yr, I think we could have done with league minimum to give Gus a shot at proving himself.


#2311660 Ilitch, Chelios to fly to Suter, Holland to fly to Parise

Posted by RedWingsRox on 01 July 2012 - 03:34 PM

Maybe we should also send Carrie Millbank and Karen Newman with Holland and Alyonka Larionov with Illitch and Chelios.


#2311586 Ilitch, Chelios to fly to Suter, Holland to fly to Parise

First time I ever heard us sending out a contingent of people to woo free agents. This must be serious. Why don't we send Gordie Howe?


#2311318 i hope we dont panic if suter and parise signs elsewhere

Posted by RedWingsRox on 30 June 2012 - 12:38 AM

Sorry but your post doesn't help ... I will be terribly upset if we don't get some UFA especially to help with our blue line. We've got some pretty big holes to fill there with Lids and Stu gone. AND I will be pretty upset if we just fill our holes with middle level players like Quincey. We need a stud defencemen or two.

Let's hope this clown from SI is right:

http://sportsillustr...?sct=nhl_t11_a0


Zach Parise, New Jersey Devils
Best fit: Los Angeles Kings
Where I think he'll sign: Detroit

Ryan Suter, Nashville Predators
Best fit: Carolina Hurricanes
Where I think he'll sign: Detroit


#2309263 Top Swiss-leaguer Brunner to sign with Wings, Babcock has big plans

Posted by RedWingsRox on 23 June 2012 - 03:37 PM

Great job on our scouting team to unearth skill and talent from other sources. Everyone knows that we were known for finding talent in Sweden by having a designated scout there. Now that Russia and Sweden have been tapped, let's find all the gems in Switzerland, Belarus, Africa, China, Australia, India ...


#2309087 Jordan Staal traded to Carolina, signs 10-yr, $60m extension

Posted by RedWingsRox on 22 June 2012 - 10:30 PM

You got to hand it to the GM's of Pitts and Carolina ... Lebrun reported that they started chatting at 4:00 pm and by 7:00 pm, deal was done. You gotta like how quickly some GM's get things done.


#2309037 2012 NHL Entry Draft Discussion

Posted by RedWingsRox on 22 June 2012 - 09:18 PM

Did Holland and management team even bother to show up at draft center today or will they show up tomorrow?


#2307994 Darren Helm signs 4 year extension

Posted by RedWingsRox on 19 June 2012 - 10:05 AM

Helm Deal ... Like :thumbup: :thumbup:


#2307465 Chris Stewart

Posted by RedWingsRox on 14 June 2012 - 09:08 PM

^ there goes that good idea of signing Stewart.


#2306427 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Posted by RedWingsRox on 10 June 2012 - 07:02 PM

7th round in 2014 plus a dud ... OK, I know it was only for 3 weeks of negotiating rights but better than nothing. I think it was just a classy gesture by the Wings who wants the best for Stuart. Bad thing is we will play him what 6 times in a year? SJ just got a bit better and we got a lot worst in the last 2 weeks.


#2306425 Red Wings Prepared to Offer Hudler Contract

Posted by RedWingsRox on 10 June 2012 - 06:55 PM

Offer him something reasonable, if he wants to test market ... let him. More money for Parise.
