#2018495 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Motown4013 on 23 July 2010 - 10:58 AM

Those who don't think Modano is holding up the contracts of Helm and Abdelkader are being naive. Of course that's the holdup. If I were those guys I'd want want short term deals if this is how they're treated. Eaves and Miller should have been signed after those guys and Modano should be last if there's anything left.

I'd hat to lose a decade of Helm or Abby for Modano on his last legs.

Before anyone cries, yes I understand that both will sign contracts, they have no leverage NOW, but when UFA comes? How would you feel at work if your boss kept shoving you to the bottom of the pile? It's a real concern if your able to think beyond today.


I tend to agree with some of this post. Helm (especially) and Abby would and should have been priority. Signing them shows that the organization appreciates their play and respects them instead of waiting around. Get them signed and Modano (or whomever) can have the chicken scratch.

Kinda blew my mind seeing them work together last year. I don't know who was trying to change who's game, but...hear tell they had a mixed martial arts guy there too...now, what does that imply???

That Pav's really is a ninja?? I knew it!

#2010252 Getflaf for Zetter

Posted by Motown4013 on 05 July 2010 - 08:32 AM

Zetterberg is eye candy for all the motown ladies, and Getz is a homely guy...Z is a hot commodity...Oh, plus the whole "defensive genius', world class playmaker and shutdown stud. Hank is gonna have a great year (my prediction)
PS Dont talk about Getz in the playoffs or that "they have the same amount of Stanley Cups"...The ONLY thing you should remember about comparing these 2 is Hank has a Conn Smythe....enough said!


#2000421 Bertuzzi Signs 2 Year Deal

Yikes almost 2 mil a year?

C'me on...He deserved a raise.The guy isnt a 4th line guy...45 points at 1.8 million is a great deal!

Thanks for posting. My blog is fairly new but I have a few followers. It seems it's already known to a few in this forum as I noticed my Sharks/Refs image has been used in another thread :)


This is true, I do have too much time on my hands, but in this instance it was only used for the graphics. The stats are automatically generated, they're all there on the site.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it. :)

Nice job on the site!


#1956830 Red Wings Training Camp 2010

Posted by Motown4013 on 24 April 2010 - 10:52 PM

Training camp is awesome....The guys are great at signing stuff and most of the fans are really fun as well. I got a complete stranger to take a pic of myself and Z with HER camera and she emailed me the pic when I got home. Its a great atmosphere to hang out, see some great practices and meet the guys.
Two years ago we stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge but this year I am staying on the bay.
Also, the boys usually will go out for a beer or two on Union street.

As for tickets, I have never had a problem getting good seats via fax. I live in Ontario, and its hard to get up to TC to get them but there has never been an issue by fax. Anyway, its a great time so I hope to see some other LGW fans there

#1931421 Hank and Flip Not Working Out Well

Posted by Motown4013 on 03 April 2010 - 09:48 PM

Ok seriously....Hank has played SIX less games than Pasha and has 1 less point. This constant "Zetterberg needs to step it up" needs to stop (unless you're gonna call out th entire team). As for Flip, he has 35 points in 50 games and went on an huge streak when he was meshed with Z. Flip and Zetty also play great defensively- both of them, which cannot be said about Homer or The Mule so you cant just measure points as a yardstick for success.
10 days ago the Zetty, Flip, Bert line was the second coming but they dont score in a few and they are thrown under a bus...sheesh!
:angry:


#1929308 Hudler done with dynamo

Posted by Motown4013 on 31 March 2010 - 02:54 PM

Why are people assuming Holmstrom will retire?

There was an article a couple of weeks ago implying that he would probably be re-signed.

http://www.detnews.c...0433/1128/rss16

Or has something changed since?

As for Hudler, yes please. Williams gone hopefully. I reckon Bert, Homer, Lids, Miller, Eaves, Helm, Abs, Lilja, Kindl will all be with the Wings next year. Possibly with 1m cap space.

:thumbup:
Totally agree...Homer is having a great season and I think he will be back. I doubt we will see Malts again..and honestly, thats a good thing. Hudler in replacement of Willy would suit me perfectly!


#1914778 Zetterberg needs to step it up

Posted by Motown4013 on 12 March 2010 - 05:02 PM

Z doesn't get to play with the best players like Datsyuk does...Homer is better than Cleary and Franzen is way better than Williams... Hank doesn't have a lot to work with... Hopefully, moving Flip there will help him out.

Couldnt agree more...I like him with Flip- hopefully that line will work!
