#2528887 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Whatever. Get over it. Move forward. Hope for the best. Prove the haters wrong.  Be thankful Detroit still has a team. Going to be hard to watch, but we aren't the Dead Wings again yet.  Even if we are down the road, I'll still watch this team and support it.

#2425497 How much is too much?

So ... are there any opportunities that look promising in terms of next year's free agents? I have my doubts as to whether anything really gets done this off-season.  Does anyone think these overpayments to free agents will eventually slow down in the coming years?  I look at the salaries that they are commanding and I have to remind myself that this is not the NBA.  If we try to get any type of forward to play on the top two lines, I only see it happening through a trade where we will have to give up some of our valuable assets.  I've seen a lot of people complaining about the high prices for players.  While I will agree with you that the prices are somewhat exorbitant, this is the current reality of NHL free agency.  The only way we *might* be able to get players to sign less expensive contracts is if we draft them, develop them, and so on.  At the same time, I feel that there has to be a point where we have to bring in new blood, even if it means overpaying.  If the organization cannot evolve with the changing dynamics of the business, it is looking like it will be a topsy-turvy decade, with everyone (hypothetically) biting their nails and wondering if Kenny will actually re-sign Tatar and "player X" to the $6-9+million that they could be asking for in the coming years ... I know it might sound silly, but that is what I see. I think we will certainly make the playoff for each of the next four years, I just want the organization to make sure that we are continuously bridging the gap, willing to bring in young guns, but also willing to bring in veterans that can help take us to the next level.  I don't know if I have made any sense. I probably just sound like everyone else.  Meanwhile, life goes on...

#2424791 Report: Red Wings out on Lecavalier - signs with Philly 5@4.5 per

Stephen Weiss ... don't know anything about him ... sounds like when we signed Ray Whitney to replace Sergei ... and yes ... I realize Flip is NOT comparable to Sergei ... And what about the wing??? Bobby Ryan after next year??? Holland better do something ... WHY IN THE WORLD would you sign Datsyuk but not give him someone stable on the Wing to play with.  Yeah, I understand we have players who can play on the wing who play a different natural position, but this is getting tiresome ...

#2420844 Ilitch reveals plan for new $450m, 18,000-seat Red Wings arena

I never really cared for The Joe ... not very accessible ... wheelchair seating sucks ... it needs to be like Nationwide Arena where I can see the entire ice surface from above, not one side or the other ... I would love Gordie Howe Arena, but today's world makes that pretty much impossible ...
