#2532407 Dekeyser/Tatar status update

Posted by number9 on 17 July 2014 - 07:21 PM

DD doesn't even have a full 82 games under his belt yet. No way he gets 4 mil for 5


#2530881 Kane & Toews Sign Identical 8-year, $10.5M AAV Extensions

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 09 July 2014 - 04:38 PM

this is cute.....why don't they get married while they're at it and then they can punch cabbies together?  There's no way Kane is worth that money! 

 

 

and don't get me started on Toews' playoff beard......

#2525331 Alfie informs Wings he wants to return

Posted by Jesusberg on 23 June 2014 - 05:18 PM

Man, I don't care if the guy's 42, 45, 58 1/2 - it's one less spot for Dan Cleary.

Hope he comes back for less money and he isn't the only acquisition the Wings make this off-season.




#2525015 Brad Richards bought out by Rangers

Posted by Euro_Twins on 21 June 2014 - 10:22 AM

Another circular arguement. Fun times! Neither is a great player and maybe never were. But and this is key, both have long bad contracts. One team realized this and bought out their crap the other didn't. Now when comparing the 2 in terms of numbers it is taking a trip down the over rated road. But lets.....
Richards just turn 34 a couple of months ago and Franzen turns 35 in a couple of months. They are 8 months apart in age, with Franzen being older. Franzen has had at least 3 concussions in the NHL and a couple of other major injuries along the way, Richards hasn't. Over the past 3 seasons Richards missed a total of 2 regular season games. For their careers Richards scores .88 points per game, Franzen scores .61 ppg. Now over the last 3 years Richards numbers have dropped to .72 ppg, but those numbers are still better than Franzen's. Yes some of that is the fact Richards is a C and get s a lot of assists, while Franzen is a winger and supposed to score goals. On that front though they are very close. Richards has scored 56 regular season goals and 12 post season goals over the past 3 years while Franzen has scored 59 in the past 3 regular seasons and 5 in the past 3 post seasons.
Now I am no fan of richards, nor do I want him here. Lets be very clear about that. In each case we have declining players that are signed long term. Both should have been bought out. That is the point.


Since you mentioned ppg over the last three years. Over the last three years franzen has averaged .75 ppg. Yes he is streaky, we all know that. But there is no denying the production. Sure you can say he hasn't showed up in the playoffs, which is true, and he is "lazy" but his +/- would disagree with you as would just about every defensive status available. He may look disinterested and laid back, but what I see is a player babs has transformed to play defense first. His production is as high as it's ever been, and his defensive game is much better than everyone gives him credit for.

I would take franzen over Richards any day.

Brad Richards age 34 - Contract remaining - 6 years with a cap hit of 6.67 Million a season
Johan Franzen age 34 - Contract remaining - 6 years with a cap hit of 3.95 million a season
 
New York Rangers Goal differential +25  
Brad Richards plus minus -8
Detroit Red Wings goal differential -8 
Johan Franzen plus minus +6
 
Hits
Brad Richards 24
Johan Franzen 66
 
Giveaways
Brad Richards 46
Johan Franzen 28
 
Faceoffs
Brad Richards 49.8%
Johan Franzen 52.9%
 
Richards slightly outscored Franzen this year but was far worse defensively and he costs almost double what Franzen does. That's why one is employed and the other was paid to go away.


If franzenstein played 82 games like Richards he would have (pro rated) 11 points more and 4 goals more.


#2524979 Brad Richards bought out by Rangers

Posted by FlashyG on 20 June 2014 - 11:46 PM

So let me see if I got this correct. The rags buyout Richards. He is younger than Franzen, scored more goals this past year for Franzen, plys better D than Franzen, plays n more games than franzen, and had an equally long and bad contact. But we can't buyout Franzen? Please try to support that now! can't be done. This is what buyouts are to be used for, not TooToo.

#2524800 Todd Bertuzzi will not be re-signed

Posted by kipwinger on 20 June 2014 - 10:07 AM

And thus ends my long time dream of cheering wildly as Todd Bertuzzi is handed the Stanley Cup first after it is presented to Zetterberg (and cheering all the more wildly knowing that the rest of the hockey world is HATING what they're seeing).

But in all seriousness, he was a very good defenceman and although goofy I could see him commanding some respect as a coach.




#2524498 Slow News Day Thread

@JasonGregor: MacT admits they went after Dekeyser last summer. Met him for dinner and had great meeting, but his licence plate had Red Wings on it.

@JasonGregor: "That was not a good sign for us," laughed MacTavish about DeKeyser's licence plate. #Oilers

:lol:


#2524312 Detroit re-signs Gustavsson 1 yr $1.85 mill

Posted by nawein on 17 June 2014 - 08:23 PM

Martin Brodeur Why not? I mean come on Ken Holland! Give this guy a chance! I mean why not? He could be the difference. Like Hasek was in 2002. Where is the Old Ken Holland the one that signed the big named players? I mean really. I miss the old Ken Holland. I think they have the real one on some Island or something and they give us his Twin or something because the old Holland would be going after Martin or some other Big Named Goalie. I mean what the heck Holland. Holland should let me be the GM for Two days because I could do a better job than him seriously. I've been a fan of the Detroit Red Wings since 1996 so I know what it takes to make this team great again. 


Yes clearly Brodeur could propel this team to a Stanley Cup. Why did no one think of this before?

#2524184 Compliance buyout expected to be used on Tootoo

Posted by number9 on 17 June 2014 - 10:03 AM

Not using it on Franzen will bite this team in the ass very soon but whatever had to be expected. Hopefully Tootoo can get a spot somewhere else.


He's putting up the same numbers he did in 2008, why in the world would we buy him out now?


#2524148 Compliance buyout expected to be used on Tootoo

Posted by Euro_Twins on 17 June 2014 - 08:34 AM

We got franzens contract.

And kindls(or was it after the new cba he signed his extension can't remember).

Either way using it on a guy with 1 year led is a waste but O well.


Franzen is putting up just as many points as he was when he was signed to that contract. Kindl has a very tradeable contract. Gomez was a terrible comparison.


#2524081 Shawn Thornton will not be returning to the Bruins

Posted by DickieDunn on 16 June 2014 - 08:09 PM

Nosek is signed for the future. Think of him as a draft pick they just signed. The rest of your post is nonsense. Thornton isn't what the team needs but Holland is stupid for not having any interest in him even though nothing about Thornton or that type of player has been mentioned at all by the team.
