#2683145 Glendening signs 4-year, $1.8m AAV extension

Posted by Aethernum on 14 July 2016 - 10:37 AM


#RedWings sign Luke Glendening to 4-year extension at $1.8 million cap hit. Had one year left on deal, so new deal goes through 2020-21.


I like Luke but ugh lol



$1.8 million for a Top 25 Face-off man in the league? I'll take it. Say what you will about his skill with the puck, but among the players used regularly as centers for their teams (i.e. - took 500+ faceoffs last year) he was #24. That's pretty good.

Why are people bitching about this?? Does everyone forget that his injury lost us the 2015 series with the lightning. He owned tyler Johnson ala 2009 zetterberg on Crosby. People need to remember that it isn't 2006 anymore and 1.8 million for a 4th liner is not a bad deal.

Can't wait to give up Tatar for an aging trash d-man who's "tough"

We all know Glendening is being groomed for the captaincy.

#2682887 Should any of #91, #13, #40, #30 be retired? Poll/Discussion

Great description of Homer and the others. You're spot on. I laughed at the Murphy's glasses reference.

What about a ring of honor in the new arena to recognize that second tier of significant Wings, kind of like what Montreal has? It would be a good way to recognize the Grind Line, Shanny, Holmstrom, Redmond, etc. without cheapening the jersey retirement.

While we are putting teams in some of the hottest places in the US, why not try for Atlanta or Arizona while we're at it and see how hockey does in those kinds of markets. 


Oh wait..

What makes this even funnier (to me) is I had to stop and think about who he was for a second.  :lol:

#2667083 1st Round Playoff Schedule Released

Man it's going to be interesting to see how FSD handles Wednesday lol... Now Wings Pistons Tigers all start at 7 and are set to be shown on FSD/FSD+


Baseball is not a sport and the season just started.  The early games aren't important.  The NBA playoffs haven't started yet.  The Pistons are sacrificial lambs for Lebron. No reason to waste time on them.


Pretty easy choice as to who should be the televised team.    

#2628832 Interesting Article about NHL Veterans Not finding jobs

Posted by number9 on 08 October 2015 - 12:22 AM


It makes sense. When you have certain guys like Toews & Kane just as an example making huge amounts of money, rather then paying a vet 2 or 3 mil a year, it's more affordable cap wise to play youth on an entry level or close to an entry level contract. I wonder if these guys held out at the beginning of UFA hoping to get paid more??

Economically it makes sense. Reward the elite and exploit the poor. Let the middle class players burn. And the world turns.

#2619977 Gustav Nyquist signed 4-Year Deal $4.75 mill AAV

Posted by DatsyukianDekes on 10 July 2015 - 02:25 PM

I think we both got a fair deal ... He had what ? 2 27 goal seasons ? I think 4.75 is more than fair , wouldn't call it a steal

Just think the other gm's throwing 7.5 per at the ryan o'reillys of the league are f***en morons

Hate ken holland all you will for not making more deals and so on, but he'll never over pay someone

If Gus was asking for 7 per he'd be gone

0% chance Ericsson gets dealt ... I know a lot of people here hate him but we don't have guys his size in the back

What's the point of size when you don't use it. hickets uses his size more then Ericsson
