You're wrong...


This isn't the horribly dirty hit you're playing it out to be. It was an illegal hit, sure, but what's getting it attention is that Horton was hurt. If he weren't hurt, it would have been a two-minute penalty for interference and this thread wouldn't exist. Bear in mind too that many players are injured on clean hits.

How is "accordingly" 5+ games for a hit like this? One is not punished based on the severity of the injury.

Everyone in the hockey analysis world disagrees with you.

I agree with you on this. Yes it was a tad late..barely. was not a shot to the head. I think some people need to "re-watch" the video a little more close and not have the hate on for the nucks when watching. I think if any 1-2 games...thats it. But thats just me.

well there you go. 4 games.

Pitkanens physical? News to me.

Blueadams is a Wings fan, so he has a different understanding of that word. ;)

#2182471 How Much Is Hudler Worth?

Posted by CaliWingsNut on 03 June 2011 - 10:17 PM

He's worth trading...

#2182183 Brad Richards

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 June 2011 - 06:23 PM

The thing is, and i know its 99.99999% fact that he wont be a Red Wing next year, BUT Holland does have enough cash next year to offer him a $9M contract.

If the Cap goes up to the rumored $62.3M (third number I heard BTW) that will give the Wings $21.49M in Cap space before anyone is signed... Given that Lids will get at least $6, Wiz a generous $4.5M, they would then have to trade away Hudler's salary, giving them $4.8M to finish up the roster. Slight raises to Miller/Eaves and then add Mursak. That would leave $2.5M and they would have just enough for another $1M defenseman a 7th league minimum defenseman and a league minimum goalie... I know there has been a lot of talk about Jovo, but he made $6.5M last year, do you think he would sign for under $2M somewhere? Anyhow, I will leave the mopping up to Holland, but so far my pipedream roster looks like this...


Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Brad Richards ($9.000m)
Todd Bertuzzi ($1.937m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Johan Franzen ($3.954m)
Daniel Cleary ($2.800m) / Darren Helm ($0.912m) / Patrick Eaves ($0.950m)
Drew Miller ($0.850m) / Justin Abdelkader ($0.787m) / Tomas Holmstrom ($1.875m)
Jan Mursak ($0.550m)

Nicklas Lidstrom ($6.000m) / James Wisniewski ($4.500m)
Niklas Kronwall ($3.000m) / Brad Stuart ($3.750m)
Jakub Kindl ($0.883m) / ????????

Jimmy Howard ($2.250m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $62,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $59,783,711; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (19-man roster): $2,516,289

...BUT, this all depends on Holland being able to move Hudler before July 1st, if he cannot dump his salary, then even this pipedream goes up in smoke...

I sure hope the cap goes up the $5.1M that it has been rumored to (that would be $64.5M and would give Holland $4.7M to mop up,) that would help out alot! But, Richards it is not impossible, just improbable... (unless he does pull a Hossa for one year and then gets a multi-year deal next off season...)

#2181296 I think we're going to win it all next season

Posted by blueadams on 31 May 2011 - 01:32 PM

Smith wont be a wing next season, you can almost bet the farm on that.

I disagree.

#2181282 I think we're going to win it all next season

Posted by blueadams on 31 May 2011 - 01:09 PM

Here's why: assuming that Lidstrom resigns for about the same price, that a backup goalie is signed for around league minimum, and that Brendan Smith makes the team, we're going to have about 11.9 mil in cap space available to fill three roster positions (here's a link to the math if you'd like to see it for yourself - http://www.letsgowin...ff-season-post/). That's enough to add three '4 mil a season'-level players to this roster, aka Franzen-level players.

...I realize that Holland's not going to be wasting all of our cap space just because he can. But I also realize that he's never once in his career let more than a half million or so in cap space go to waste. If there aren't good long-term contract options available, I think that he'll fill out the cap space with the best short-term contract options available (i.e. veterans). I don't watch enough non-Wings hockey to speculate on the possible additions, but I think that we're going to be seeing a much, much better looking team out there next season.




plug three '4 mil a season'-level players into those question marks...scary.

#2181062 Changes in the offseason

Posted by Crymson on 30 May 2011 - 12:49 PM

Do whatever it takes to get Webber

He's even taller and heavier than Chara, and he's got great hands, but I'm pretty sure he retired. There was also all that nastiness with that booster at the University of Michigan...

#2180452 Question about Carcillo

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 27 May 2011 - 04:46 PM

He could crack the Wings roster easily, but I wouldnt want him honestly. Dives, takes bad penalties, and is a smaller guy for what he tries to do. Speaking of Carcillo, the guy he was traded for, Scottie Upshall is a free agent. If we want a spark plug player with upside, it's him, not Carcillo.
