#2622994 Kane Off NHL 16 Cover

Posted by Jedi on 12 August 2015 - 09:13 PM

Stevie was on it in the mid-90's, not sure when, but it was pre-Cup.

Stevie was (sorta) on the cover of NHL 96.

#2619764 Wings‬ sign left wing Eric Tangradi

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 09 July 2015 - 09:02 AM

This is true. I knew the name a little from highlights etc but I couldn't have told you anything about him...then in the first round I was like "oh that's Tyler Johnson, well Frk that guy"

Ha.Fair enough.
He'd been tearing up the league and he was constantly mentioned because of his undrafted to number one c story, I had assumed he was a household name.
I wasn't being facetious, by the way, I was generally intrigued by you not knowing him. He was on sportscenter, so he must be known.

Tangradi just sounds like a guy who would kick your a$$. He was destined to be an enforcer.

Saying it twice doesn't make it magically happen.

Three times, however.

#2619149 Nyquist Files For Arbitration

Posted by LeftWinger on 05 July 2015 - 08:38 PM

here is the problem, Saad is not worth $6M, even hockey insiders were taken aback at that contract. If Nyquist gets awarded anything over $3M, especially north of $5M, walk away. If Nyquist gets $6M, then so will Tatar next contract, then what happens when Pulkkamania runs wild and he scores 30? Its outrageous to think that he has earned $4M, let alone $6M...

if he gets awarded $6M, Holland must walk away, no question about it. Has not earned anywhere near that.


Outside of Frank, I don't think anybody is speculating 6million. I dont think you have to worry.

#2619111 Nyquist Files For Arbitration

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 05 July 2015 - 04:55 PM

It's amazing how fast people will turn on a player.


If memory serves, this is more of a basic procedural thing than a real indication that things are going poorly.  By filing for arbitration Nyquist forfeits the right to accept an offer sheet from other teams.  In other words, he's committing to the Wings by filing.  


Today is the deadline to file so the timing is likely a result of that, not something that happened with the Wings.  I'm pretty sure this is something players do that's just a backup plan for a worst case scenario. And again, by doing so he cannot accept an offer sheet from another team.

My childhood hero and all time favourite player.


I don't think they would mention it unless it was going to happen.

#2617758 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by Playmaker on 30 June 2015 - 08:58 PM

I know Wings fans hate to hear it, but Weiss and Alfredsson were considered the top 2 free agents that summer. 

#2617481 Alexander semin being bought out

Posted by matt198913 on 30 June 2015 - 11:47 AM

Wouldn't be opposed to it if he's getting a small contract. No way am I eclipsing 3 million for him.

#2617442 Mike Richard's Contract Terminated (Not Bought Out)

Posted by amato on 30 June 2015 - 07:38 AM

I would say he either hasn't been putting the work in physically off ice, or he got into Stoll's stash....or both ;)


#2609641 Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

Posted by kipwinger on 22 May 2015 - 10:28 AM

Slava Fetisov, former Red Wing defenseman and star of the wildly popular documentary "Red Army", wants Russian law to ban Russian hockey players from coming to the U.S. before their 28th birthday. 


You'll recall Fetisov's story.  He bucked Soviet law preventing him from coming to the U.S. to play hockey, by refusing to play for their national team.  In the documentary he explained how he wanted to be free to make his own decisions, make his own money, and determine his own future, without being coerced by federal authorities. 


And now he's a federal authority.  And he's trying to restrict young players from having those very same liberties. 


Here's a thought Slava.  Rather than using a draconian legal system to force people to stay against their will, how's about you work toward reforming said legal system, and equally restrictive and authoritarian economic policies, so that people will WANT to stay in your s***ty country.  You are, after all, a Senator. 


What a dick.
