#2217686 10/22 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Capitals 7

Posted by Doc Holliday on 23 October 2011 - 01:21 PM

Pretty awful game.

That's the thing with losses. When the team loses there is more to discuss regarding what needs to improve. In a win there is normally a couple pages of circle-jerking whoever played well and that's that. Shouldn't be shocking that there are a bunch of pages for a first loss, especially one where the Wings get brutalized.

#2216350 More antics from the KHL

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 October 2011 - 11:47 AM

I am a big fan of fighting as you all know.

However, these North American goons that went to Vityaz are af****** disgrace to their professions and I've had enough of their s***. An enforcer's job is to protect his teammates and go after players that need to be put in their place. NOT to pick on guys for no reason, especially players who are not fighters and can't defend themselves. It's just bully tactics which have no purpose to them.

This is the worst kind of spotpicking BS I've ever seen and it's been going on for years now. Have these players forgotten what the code is? Gratton, Verot, Sugden, that retard Mirasty, Yablonski, Brennan, etc. These guys are all on my permanent hate list for their behavior the last couple of seasons. Are they too dickless to play in North America anymore, so they have to go to Russia to fight skilled players?

And how about their coach Andrei Nazarov. The big Russian ***** who always got his ass kicked in the NHL, and now he's overcompensating for it by instructing his goons to pick on non-fighters for no reason. What an *******.

The weird thing about Vityaz is their GM, none other than Alexei Zhamnov. He was a skilled player his whole career, so I'm surprised he's allowing this garbage.

Sorry for the language.


#2216505 ESPN insider article re: Wing's deadline cap space

Posted by HockeytownRules19 on 20 October 2011 - 12:50 PM

I think we should all pray the Devils are not in it come the trade deadline because if so I would definitely not be surprised to see them trade Zach Parise since he is a UFA after this year... No doubt the wings would be interested too... OMG that would be amazing! :siren:


#2216500 ESPN insider article re: Wing's deadline cap space

Posted by unsaddleddonald on 20 October 2011 - 12:34 PM

No, it's not a misprint: The Detroit Red Wings have cap room, and lots of it.

The Red Wings, who have long walked a fine line near the cap's upper limit as one of the NHL's top spenders, are in a strangely unfamiliar position early this season, ranking just 18th in the league in projected cap spending around $59 million.

In large part, the Red Wings' change in cap fortune is the result of Brian Rafalski's unexpected retirement, which shaved $6 million off their payroll. General manager Ken Holland opted not to replace Rafalski's big ticket in full, perhaps because of the underwhelming nature of last summer's unrestricted free-agent market.

The Red Wings' cap payroll sits roughly $5.3 million below the $64.3 million upper limit. If they don't spend those dollars until February, that figure will translate into as much as $24 million in acquirable cap hits at the trade deadline.

It's a drastic contrast to last season, when the Red Wings had enough cap room to add only a league-minimum salary of $525,000 at the deadline. And it leaves Holland virtually without restrictions if he wants to load up his roster for the playoffs.

As it turns out, the Red Wings aren't the only team sitting pretty. A healthy $4.9 million increase in the limit has meant that teams simply aren't as tight to the cap as they were last season, when 12 teams were estimated to have exhausted almost every dollar of cap space.

Although more than half the league projects to spend upward of $60 million, most of those teams are comfortably below the limit of $64.3 million.





ohhhhhhhhhhhh boyyyyyyyyy :clap:


#2216492 Hudler?

Posted by Doc Holliday on 20 October 2011 - 11:25 AM

Tuomo Ruutu could center our second line yes, while Dats and Z stick together on the first.

Did people think I was talking about Jarko Ruutu or something? Negative 2 for that post, people must not be up to date on their hockey :rolleyes:

Ruutu, who has consistently put up around 60 points a season the last 3 years and been top 3 in hits and ahuge hitter would be a steal if we could get him for Hudler and would help this team out way more than Hudler does.

Hes only 28 which is relatively young as well.

I'm just gonna have to assume other people that gave that a negative dont know what theyre talking about lol


Maybe you should stop caring about reputation points.

Also Hudler is 27. And matches Ruutu's high in points. And looks like he is back to his old form.

But naw, we should trade him straight up for a guy who may not work in the system and provides an arguably negligible advantage in the long run.

and could allow Dats and Z to stay together while he centers the second line.


:shocking:


#2216395 Hudler?

Posted by newfy on 19 October 2011 - 02:13 PM

While hes playing well they should send him to Carolina for Ruutu. The panel was saying hes being shopped around and Hudler could actually get the deal done with little else added I think.

Ruutu would be that physical piece the top 6 lacks, and could allow Dats and Z to stay together while he centers the second line.

#2215630 Thoughts on Ericsson?

Posted by UP Wings Fan on 15 October 2011 - 09:59 PM

Just wondering how everyone is feeling about Ericsson? and whether or not you feel he is earning his new money? I feel he is a detriment while on the ice, way too many mistakes, and hasn't come close to showing that he is worth the 3+ million he is earning!

GO WINGS!


#2215639 Thoughts on Ericsson?

Posted by UP Wings Fan on 15 October 2011 - 10:14 PM

He's improving, but not enough. Not yet.


After 3 years with the Griffins and 3 with the Wings, my thought is that we shouldn't still be talking about him improving! He should be there already! My vote is that we keep Kindl up, send Ericsson down.

I actually liked him wearing #15, shame he changed. Hopefully the change doesn't mean a change of work ethic.
