#2448658 Babcock's coaching

Posted by TheOwl on 29 October 2013 - 11:40 AM

This is not new, the Wings have had trouble scoring consistantly for the last 3-4 years. Fresh blood is the answer. Sammy, Cleary are water trash. Burtuzzi is old and lazy. Franzen is lazy, and Weiss was a HUGE waste of money. Flipulla was always a superior player, with the higher potential.

 

I thought moving to the East would help the Wings, less travel, fresh division, new opponents, but no. Same old problems. Same old roster filled with the same familar street bums. Next season, Quiency, Cleary, Bert, Sammy, should all be sent out to pasture to die. Wastes of cap space. Get the rookies in here, they may suck for half a season, but at least they have the potential, and the desire, to win and play well.




#2430098 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by TheOwl on 14 July 2013 - 10:01 PM

 

I dunno, just seems weird that he'd leave for Jersey of all places for comparable $

 

Holland didn't want to go that high. Lets say he did sign him right now for 3 million, the Wings would be over the cap by 1 million. Plus three must sign RFA's need to get raises. And we would have 17 forwards signed counting Gustav and Andersson.

 

He should trade Sammy for a 7th round pick. It's Hollands fault Brunner isn't a Wing, the guy loved playing here.

You seem like a degenerate gambler. I would take you up on this bet, but you're probably also the type that doesn't pay your debts...

 

A Lannister always pays his debts.




#2427471 Brunner Contract Talks

Brunner will have the better career than Nyquest or Tatar, Kenny needs to get him signed, 2.5 million for 3 years, getter done.




#2427468 is anyone happy right now?

Posted by TheOwl on 05 July 2013 - 04:15 PM

Wings offered Cleary 2.5 million for 3 seasons, GIVE THAT SAME DEAL TO BRUNNER.




#2427139 Wings interested in Morrow

Posted by TheOwl on 05 July 2013 - 02:00 PM

Poor Cleary, I'll miss the guy. Sign Morrow, sign Iginla. Fill the top 6 with old captains of other teams! Getter done KENNY.

#2426991 Wings sign Stephen Weiss, 5-years, $24.5m

Posted by TheOwl on 05 July 2013 - 01:22 PM

BRUNNER, I LOVE YOU, PLEASE SIGN, PLEEEEASE




#2426730 Stephen Weiss on his way?

Posted by TheOwl on 05 July 2013 - 12:10 PM

BRUNNER, BRUNNER, BRUNNER HE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON TO SIGN




#2426612 Stephen Weiss on his way?

Posted by TheOwl on 05 July 2013 - 11:34 AM

NEED, BRUNNER, CHEAP, LOW RISK, HIGH REWARD. SIGN BRUNNER. Could you imagine if we pay Sammy 3 million a season and let Brunner walk at 2.5. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

 

"Yes, please. Hopefully something reasonable that gives them flexibility. $7.2mil in cap space remaining after the Alfredsson signing."

 

They still need to re-sign Nyquest, Anderson and Smith. The Wings have basically no cap space.




#2426422 Wings in on Alfredsson

Posted by TheOwl on 05 July 2013 - 10:16 AM

Good DEAL, as long as they sign Brunner as well.




#2425712 Players of Interest

Posted by TheOwl on 04 July 2013 - 03:06 AM

If you think about the Wings cannot get Weiss if they sign Cleary or Brunner. The Wings have 10 million in space, assume on the low end Nyquest, Anderson and Smith eat up 5 mllion. That's 5 million left, basically what Weiss will cost. The Wings cannot let Brunner walk, it would be like throwing away a top 10 draft pick, the guy can and will be a 30+ a year goal scorer. DO NOT LET BRUNNER GO.

 

Get rid of Tootoo or Sammy (buyout or trade), and they can afford Brunner, Weiss, Anderson, Smith and Nyquist. GETTER DONE KENNY.
