#2420865 Dreger: Filppula looking for $5.5m/season over at least 7 years

Posted by Carman on 19 June 2013 - 06:21 PM

I really like Filpulla and think his numbers don't really tell the story on the type of player he is, but there is no way in the world I'd go over 4, and I'm a huge fan of his game.


I'm not going to flip out over rumors just yet, we all want to be paid, and there is a argument he is worth 5+ million the year before with his 60+ points and defensive prowess, it's not something I agree with, but he at least has had a season where his numbers would be deserving of it. I'd certainly let another team enjoy his game for that much though.

#2408800 Should we bring Tootoo in for game 4?

No. We need Cleary he's pissing them off immensely. We need all our fourth line. Pk masters. Our third line is dominant. So that leaves Abby fil franzen or pav or z. Soo no. I love toots. But Abby Cleary smith big rig will enforce next game. Q will stay out of it because of his jaw. Hence not dropping the gloves hen getting manhandled after the whistle last game. Maybe he's not as dumb as he looks.

Posted by 55fan on 13 May 2013 - 02:00 AM

Someone needs to make one about Hawks fans thinking the Hawks were founded in 2010. I moved to Illinois less than a week after they won the cup, and the amount of bandwagoners is amazing. There's guys that wear Hawks apparel and can't pronounce the names of players on their own team!

I have no actual skills, but here goes:

#2402612 WCQF Game 7 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Ducks 2 - (DET wins series, 4-3)

I was served roasted duck for breakfast this morning in Saigon (and as luck would have it, the duck on my plate was dead). I think that's a sign, hope that helps. 


Go Wings! Take this Mickey Mouse club out of the picture already.

Now I know why other teams' fans hated the Wings during the pre-cap days.

Don't forget Bettman is on their team also.

#2373689 Iginla may/may not have added Detroit to his trade list

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 25 March 2013 - 12:22 PM

I think people need to stop looking at Iginla for a rental. We rarely acquire guys as just a rental and anybody trading for Iginla wont be considering him a rental. If Detroit trades for him it will be because we are resigning him and most likely letting fippula walk. I know people want to trade Filppula for something but he will be important to us in a playoff run. 


I know people say they want Detroit to sell but we just don't do that. We have a small window left with Datsyuk in his prime and then we lose one of the best players in the game. Yes, we may not be named a TOP contender but this weekend we showed we can beat the number 2 team in the West, we have played fine against both Minny and Vancouver and our games against Chicago were all close ones that a player like Iginla could really help us win. At some point you have to sell a little bit of your future to play for the now. I have seen people on here asking for a Power forward, asking for a legit winger for Datsyuk but nobody wants to pay for it. We are not just going to mind a Milan Lucic hanging around out back of the Joe with a pair of skates over his shoulder. 


The price is high on iginla but once again we have people saying they don't want to sell future parts which aren't even sure about but we are sure that Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Franzen only have a short window of opportunity left. 


I say we give it a shot because I do not see us trading Filppula unless it was in a package for an upgrade.


EDIT: With all of that being said... I still want to know the price on Clowe... 

imagine having a real true power forward in his prime and not a 35 yr old rental


Imagine the price tag...

The Canadiens are coming in on January 30th! I went to the last game the Candiens came into the Joe and it was a blast. The crowd was amazing!

#2295187 25 Games for Torres

Posted by Resetti on 21 April 2012 - 11:31 AM

When I first saw the 25-game suspension, I thought it might be a bit heavy-handed, but after watching the explanation video that showed how many times Torres has done this exact same thing over his career, I think it was definitely warranted.

#2200899 Kris Draper announces retirement

Posted by Barrie on 25 July 2011 - 12:59 PM

This one has been picking up some minuses, but how could you disagree?

We needed these guys to bow out at some point, and these guys (Malts, Drap, Raffi, Ozzie) showed alot of class and humility when they decided to hang them up.

Just because the guys who are replacing them havent shown what they can do yet, they will this season. They just need their chance.

Im really looking forward to this season.

Just give Drapes his due first, then say you're happy with the move.
