#2192321 RFA/UFA Signings

Posted by Jesusberg on 30 June 2011 - 10:25 AM

Per Jon Rimer's Twitter:

Detroit Red Wings News: No deal with Wings and Patrick Eaves, & looks like he'll be testing the open market tomorrow.

Hope it's not true and he signs a late deal... for the right cap hit of course. I like the guy.

Oh... I'd say about tree fiddy.

#2179693 Ken Holland: Open to trade to replace Rafalski

Posted by Jesusberg on 25 May 2011 - 04:48 PM

Fair enough, and I would love to see it happen too. Usually those picks are harder to get than established players though...


The thing about a message board is everyone is going to want something different, and people are going to think each other's suggestions are insane. At the end of the day I'd WANT to see Holland add some kind of young, blue chip defender to the system. While that's almost certainly not going to occur, I'm also not going to settle for signing an old, worn-out defender who might help us for the next 1-2 years. At least, not until it actually happens. I'll have a small semblance of hope for an impact move that I'd prefer until it doesn't happen, and then when it doesn't I'll make the best out of what Holland actually snatches up.

I have a ton of faith in Holland, but I also feel that this is a critical time for the Red Wings' future. With Rafalski and Lidstrom (potentially) out and Kronwall and Stuart being 30+ years old, I'd think a young defender would be of the utmost concern. Guys like Kindl and Smith could develop (some might think Almqvist and Marshall too), but I'm not entirely sold on them. Either way, I hope that whatever he does can help the team fill the offensive void left by Raffi's departure.


#2179629 Ken Holland: Open to trade to replace Rafalski

Posted by Jesusberg on 25 May 2011 - 02:56 PM

Started by LGW members. Holland has categorically denied the Bogo rumors numerous times.


Wasn't started here. It originated from the Windsor Star's Bob Duff. Got it from his Twitter. Obviously, it didn't pan out, but it had a bit more truth to it than just being an LGW rumor.


#2178553 Brian Rafalski announces retirement after 11 NHL seasons

Posted by Jesusberg on 23 May 2011 - 04:37 PM

I don't like this one bit.


Agreed. 6 million in cap space is good and all, but the FA market is kind of dry and he's not going to be as easily replaced as some people think.


#2177083 Brad McCrimmon will not return for 2011/2012

Posted by Jesusberg on 19 May 2011 - 09:17 AM

Per Darren Dreger's Twitter:

"In an hour or so, the Detroit Red Wings will announce veteran asst coach Brad McCrimmon won't be back for a 4th year on the Wings bench."


#2170655 Bieksa Calls Out Diving.........By His Teammates

Posted by Jesusberg on 10 May 2011 - 10:08 AM

I have a friend who is a Canucks' fan, and he's just been absolutely driven insane by Bieksa. Says he takes a lot of bad penalties. That being said, he's really chippy and I think a PK tandem of Stuart-Bieksa would be awesome to watch.


#2159519 Greetings from LetsGoSharks.com

Posted by Jesusberg on 27 April 2011 - 06:58 PM

This feels like one of those moments in the WWF/E where the guy extends his hand... and the face (good guy) waits and turns to the crowd to see if he should or not...

Just kidding. But seriously, Wings in 3.


#2159444 (2) San Jose Sharks vs. (3) Detroit Red Wings

Posted by Jesusberg on 27 April 2011 - 05:06 PM

I'd view the Sharks as a rival, and perhaps even respect them if they weren't gifted the series. Having a 10-4 PP advantage in a single game is pretty ridiculous, if I remember correctly. Especially considering most of the calls were mediocre at best. I generally don't look for any team to be routed, but I hope Detroit absolutely embarrasses the Sharks to make up for last year.

Ray Shero must have nude pictures of Bryan Murray and Joe Nieuwendyk.


#2106817 All-Star Draft Discussion

Posted by Jesusberg on 28 January 2011 - 09:03 PM

Maybe it's just me, but Lidstrom's team is serious out-drafting Staal's.

Ward was picked too early, Marc Staal was picked too early... Lidstrom has far better defense, and has stacked at center. Lidstrom for the win.


#2103967 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by Jesusberg on 23 January 2011 - 05:01 PM

Probably under the way the rules are written right now, you're right. I'm suggesting the rules need to be changed. Snow and his GM would have gained nothing, even if Nabby had decided to play. And the NHL needs to remove that piece of coal from up their asses before it turns into a diamond. ...Or maybe not... :ph34r:

With a team like the Isles, the only thing they would have gained is a whole lot of negative publicity, because they already suck and they're going nowhere and everyone understands they look like idiots, going for Nabokov. Nabby has every right to choose not to play for a team that could care less about what they really need or his well-being; or what that whole knee-jerk piece of s*** does to the NHL in the future. Fine, if it means he doesn't play this season, so be it.

But whether you agree or not, the rules on this kind of idiocy should be revised.


This is pretty much what I was saying from the outset. I can understand how teams could abuse the system, signing guys from other leagues without the waivers, but really it's not like they can super stack that much. I think a better idea would to give teams some kind of limit on the overseas players they can sign WITHOUT them having to go through waivers. Give each team a chance to maybe sign 2-3 guys from another league, then anyone after that should be subjected to the waivers rule.

I think something like that would still prevent teams from stacking themselves, and at the same time save the league and any bottom feeder teams this kind of embarrassment.


#2102616 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by Jesusberg on 22 January 2011 - 11:24 AM

Bob Mackenzie just tweeted that he thinks the Isles are the favorite to claim Nabby.

Shut up Bob! Stop being so credible!


#2101730 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by Jesusberg on 21 January 2011 - 10:16 AM

This is all just a big distraction. In reality, Holland is quietly snatching up Larsson while using Nabokov as a diversion... :ph34r:


#2096944 San Jose Sharks

Posted by Jesusberg on 14 January 2011 - 09:46 AM

It's because Bombay keeps telling District 5 to dive. They've got no heart!

But seriously, it's hard to gut stuff out when you just make excuses and play with no passion. Thornton's not about to start firing up anyone on the team. You need to lead by example, and he doesn't know how to.
