#2527419 UFA day looking up

Posted by e_prime on 30 June 2014 - 09:25 PM


Of course I'm disappointed when the Wings don't get the exact players I want.  I'm convinced of my own good judgement in these matters lol.  But I'm fully capable of settling for others, provided they're not 92 years old and clearly declining. 


As for Malik...I loathe the guy.  He's the absolute definition of a company man.  I might put more stock in what he had to say if I hadn't spent the last 5 years reading him agree with every misstep Holland made, and then make excuses afterward as if Holland were a victim of fate and not a man who is clearly petrified by uncertainty.

Wasn't Malik's tweet... but a Malik follower.  Malik is an apologist through and through. He's fan that wants to be a "reporter" but ultimately is a re-poster/re-tweeter.  I go there for the facts and summaries, not for his opinion.

He finds no fault in Cleary.  That's enough for me to know that he can't be trusted.

#2525243 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Hartnell and Umberger are basically the same player.  And both are incredibly valuable secondary players.  Good trade by the BJs considering Umberger wanted out.  They got good value for a guy who I'm sure they'd rather have kept. 


p.s. I still hate Hartnell...with a passion. 

#2524228 Eaves is OUT in Nashville

Posted by Jesusberg on 17 June 2014 - 12:21 PM

Eaves seems to be in that tough position where he's not physical enough to be a consistent 4th liner (including injuries), and not skilled enough to play on a 3rd line. He's got really high IQ on the PK, but he's had such terrible luck getting hurt. I wish the guy nothing but the best.

This madness needs to end. Seriously. Realize you made a mistake and walk away. 

To bring back players that are obviously not what this team needs makes me want to scream! 


At Holland.



In his face.

This is how I imagine the talks are going thus far...

No way Ottawa trades with us after we join their division and steal their captain

#2488232 Trial date set in Steve Moore’s lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi

Posted by cusimano_brothers on 01 March 2014 - 07:35 AM

There is a chain of guilt here; they just have to find it and "connect the dots", as it were.

People will have to outright lie for Moore not to win this lawsuit.

Great accomplishment, here's hoping for a bright future wearing the winged wheel.

#2521563 Emmerton-ov: Cory heading to KHL

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 23 May 2014 - 07:50 PM

Any chance Emmerton can take Joakim Andersson along with him?

Why would they need two first line centres?

Yep Nyquist is 25 after all, he is clearly not going to get any better...

#2521124 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Euro_Twins on 19 May 2014 - 09:12 AM

XM I disagree. 3 years from now when the young guys you mention are developed-which they will be, Datsyuk will be gone, Z and Kronwall will be in the late 30's-who knows how much they will still be able to produce, Franzen will be gone I HOPE! Ericsson mid 30's etc.... The point is, the young guys are not coming fast enough to replace what we will be losing, which in fact has been the problem the last 4 or 5 years.
Even if all of the young guys that have already made it to detroit pan out-which history says they will not, none of them are guys any sees a future 80 point guy. Most look like good solid 2nd and 3rd line players. Guys that will score between 15-25 goals with 40-50 points per year. Yes every team needs guys like that. But it is your point per game guys that win cups. Or if a team is able to shut down those point per game guys.

I can see nyquist putting up 70 points/year by then
