#2311203 Free Agency General Rumor Thread

Posted by RedWingsRox on 29 June 2012 - 04:53 PM

Let's hope this clown from SI is right:


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?

#2307465 Chris Stewart

^ 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.

#2304131 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

Posted by RedWingsRox on 31 May 2012 - 12:32 AM

Will Holland keep his word and announce his retirement as well?

#2303247 Hasek wants to play in the NHL again

Posted by RedWingsRox on 25 May 2012 - 06:37 PM

We try to sign Hasek ... but damn, NY Islanders claim him first.

#2300704 The Astuteness of Paul Holmgren.

Posted by RedWingsRox on 11 May 2012 - 02:17 PM

"His job is to stop pucks and help us win games," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said. "It's not Comedy Central."

Actually, the only reason why I watch the Flyers is for the comedy.

#2299944 #4 Nashville Predators vs. #3 Phoenix Coyotes

Posted by RedWingsRox on 07 May 2012 - 11:52 PM

It feels so good to see Nashville lose !!!

#2299821 #4 Nashville Predators vs. #3 Phoenix Coyotes

Posted by RedWingsRox on 07 May 2012 - 01:47 PM

Bettman makes special announcement, we have a buyer for the team then I hope team goes out there and just put Nashville out of their misery, win this and be done with it. Suter sweepstakes begin. Bonus if anyone can rub Weber's head into the boards, maybe Torres should have done in that last game of his.

#2297101 #7 Washington Capitals vs. #2 Boston Bruins

Posted by RedWingsRox on 25 April 2012 - 09:56 PM

Hard to believe, thought that Boston would pull through but kudos to Holtby.

#2295194 25 Games for Torres

Posted by RedWingsRox on 21 April 2012 - 11:34 AM

I think Matt Cooke got about 20.

Shanny was flexing his muscle, "See I can be tough!" ... But the day before, Bettman says to Shanny ... see I own Phoenix, I won't ***** and it makes you look good. We'll make Torres the poster child for bad hits.

#2295097 Babs calls out Kenny, sort of!

Posted by RedWingsRox on 21 April 2012 - 09:30 AM

Just watched the post game press. Every other sentence, Babs is sending a message to Holland. "They had 7 top 6 forwards ... we didn't have enough, ... we're not as deep as we used to be ... we're not good enough".

Thinks defence was fine - 26SOG during the season, 23 SOG in playoffs is good defence.

Only comment he might wished he had back, "I don't know any team that has 3 franchise players, Weber, Suter, Rinne" Um, how about Zetterberg, Datsyuk, and Lidstrom Mike?

"Not going in the right direction" (about 2nd round loss, 2nd round loss, 1st round loss) - good thing is that there is only one direction to go. Heaven forbid we actually have to fight to get 7th or 8th spot!
