#2531090 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 10 July 2014 - 03:43 PM

As a moderator here, I'm just glad the Wings didn't announce the re-signing of Quincey and Cleary on the same day.

#2469026 12/30 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Predators 6

Posted by PuckY18 on 30 December 2013 - 11:36 PM

Jesus, it's as if because you're on the internet it's accepted to act like a ten year old imbecile. It's a constant bitchfest on just about everyone's part, where people wake up each day and decide to express their daily whims(few of which hold any sense). The only thing that is a bigger mess than this team right now is this board. It sounds like a majority of you look at the previous page and see everyone bashing on a given subject so you do it too because it's the cool thing to do.

What an impulsive bunch. Howard's not some second year tweener with no track record. He's 29 years old on his fifth season in the nhl. He's stood on his head and performed among the leagues top goalies year after year. Took the team team to the playoffs, on a major account of his consistent play. Way to not overreact everyone.

But you're right, sit him for the season, and see if he can come back next year.

No, they shouldn't have their own guys on a national broadcast.  Glen Healy shouldn't be trashing the Wings all game and cheering for everything the Leafs are doing.  The announcing should be 100% unbiased.


It's a Canadian, specifically a Leafs broadcast... Get over yourself. The Red Wings broadcasts are biased I don't see you complaining about that.

Now that the Wings have gone beyond all our rational expectations, can the people who are posting things like "God, we are awful" please just cool it for the rest of the playoffs? We are going to get scored on. And we are going to lose games. That's not Kind. That's not Samuelson. That's not Howard. THAT'S F$%KING SPORTS, PEOPLE. Now is the time to cheer for the Wings. Not trash them. We've got a good squad.

Is there anyone here that actually believes we win this?


Yup. Me.


#2384951 GDT 4/15: Red Wings 3 @ Predators 0

Posted by TheXym on 14 April 2013 - 09:16 PM

 
Carey Price is going to the playoffs.  I'm sure he's doing just fine.  


I'm sure he is, but there are those who seem to think he is infinitely superior to Howard. IMHO they are both very good goalies who may very well be proven great by the end of their careers.


#2384389 nhl.com calls Kenny the best GM

Posted by The Axe on 13 April 2013 - 12:46 PM

 
 
But who is available to replace those guys?  There are very, very few quality FAs available these days.  How do you replace a guy like Lidstrom?  There is NO_ONE, not a single player, in the NHL right now who is as good as Lidstrom was.  Chara and Weber are as good as it gets, neither is in the "all-time, all-NHL" bracket like Lidstrom is, neither will hit Free Agency, and if they were available for trade, the cost would be crippling.
 
I do agree we are in decline - I've been saying it for several years - but even in a transitional year, we are still in a playoff spot. 
 
A bit of perspective.  Our big rivals from the free-spending years.  Colorado - what happened to them after Roy, Foote, Sakic, Forsberg et al retired?  They've sucked ever since.  What about Dallas after Modano, Belfour, Zubov etc went?  They've sucked.  What happened to us after we lost Yzerman, Fedorov, Shanahan, Larionov, Hull, Robitaille etc?  Ken Holland went out and built another Stanley Cup roster.  And now most of that roster has retired or left and he's rebuilding the team again.  How many GMs out there have sucessfully rebuilt Cup winning rosters? Lou Lamoriello, and uh, I think thats about it.
 

 
As I've said before, if he gets the blame for Suter's wife and Parise being from Minnesota, he sure as hell gets the credit for DelKaiser being from Michigan


A good GM makes the moves that are hard to get done. Not the cupcakes.


#2384295 4/12 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Blackhawks 3 (SO)

Posted by Motown4013 on 12 April 2013 - 10:56 PM

I am obviously in the minority here but I thought they played very well tonight and good last night against San Jose. Am I pissed that we didn't walk out of Chicago with 2 points....of course, but it seems like we are playing with passion. Gus belongs in this line up and Miller and Abby have superceeded their potential. I think a lot of the guys have stepped it up, even though we apparently cant score more than two goals in one game ever. The Toews goal wasn't some lame five hole garbage from the point. Howie made the 1st save and NOBODY is going to make the second save on Toews. This is a team that will most likely win the Presidents Trophy, the best goalie tandem in the NHL and has offense out the wazoo.
To me, the last two games, playing very talented teams have been really good. I'm more concerned about playing teams that are clearly less talented than us. Nashville will show this teams true colours, much more than us losing in a SO to the leagues best.

Cheering injuries is really pathetic. I don't care how bad you think a player is. He's a human being.


#2332445 What would your proposal be?

Posted by number9 on 23 October 2012 - 01:47 AM

I propose a 50/50 split... 50% of the year the league plays hockey, and the other 50% of the year the league doesn't not play hockey. Simple. Revenue will be split 50/50 as well, half going to players and owners and the other half going to a fan fund. The fan fund will only be redeemable in beer.

Dare you to match that Bettman/Fehr

Always knew my BA in business would pay off


#2289064 Three keys to beating Nashville?

Posted by kylee on 16 April 2012 - 04:23 PM

I very much agree with the OP. May I add to this? how about stop trying to "set up" everything and just drive the net and get to the slot. It'll go a long way there is NO WAY Nashville can hang with a high intensity fast tempo Red Wings
