#2213741 Season-Long Lines Thread

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 October 2011 - 12:32 PM

Popular demand? :blink: :lol: just kidding...

Anyhow, I like line combo talk, but in reference to your lines that you want to see this year. Neither Commodore or Emmerton will be in GRR anytime soon, if at all, especially while Smith and Nyquist are waiver exempt, so just keep the dream.

I do like Filppula with Datsyuk.

Due to popular demand here on the board...I'm starting one official 'blueadams lines thread,' and I'm going to update it throughout the season (as opposed to starting 50+ different lines threads).

Real Lineup:




Blueadams' Dream Lineup:




...Nothing too drastic. 1) I think Flip is better with Pav, and I think Mule is better with Hank, so I switched those two. 2) Brendan Smith is so much better than Kindl and Commie...come on.

#2212924 Tell the Illitch Family to Drop "Presented by Amway"

It's a good point Oz... I guess I view the fan involvement as an ongoing investment: merchandise, games, my Center Ice subscription. Not to much the possibility of the new stadium being partially subsidized by the city. I know the last point is really what this is all about, but still, the fans do invest in the team just as much as the sponsors.

Most fans don't really "invest" in the team. Maybe they invest emotionally, but that's about it. Yes, fans buy tickets, they buy merchandise, etc. But that isn't investment, that's simply purchasing goods and services. If the fans actually want to invest in the team, then send your money in without expecting anything in return except for a small stake in the team.

The sponsors don't invest in the either and they really have no ownership over anything. They pay money, in return they get advertising.

The owners are the ones that actually paid to purchase the team. They need to run their business (i.e. the team) to make money hopefully, otherwise, that team may not last forever (Atlanta). This sponsorship deal actually helps the fans be able to watch their team play. Without such sponsorship deals, the ability for teams to operate would deteriorate.

Holmstrom started his career wearing 15 and switched to a higher number ending in 6, and is Swedish... coincidence? I think not! :ph34r:

Look how willing Chara is to fight someone like Van Riemsdyk. Why isn't he always this willing?

Big giraffe *****.

RooseBill The Bill Roose
All five of #RedWings players placed on waivers yesterday cleared at noon today, and are headed to Grand Rapids. @DetroitRedWings


Depth Depth Depth!

Can't wait to hear the opening day roster!

#2211927 Brunnstrom is signed.

Posted by LeftWinger on 03 October 2011 - 03:06 PM

Well he beat Johnson out for the "Play until Mursak gets back" "Play until someone is traded" contract. Now he's got a new one; he gets to spend the first half of the season competing with Emmerton and Miller for two roster spots.


Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Hey Hudler, Goodbye!

#2211181 Gustav Nyquist

Posted by jollymania on 01 October 2011 - 12:50 AM

He had more points than times he got hit, plus he looked like he belonged way more than he looked like he didn't. Everyone gets hits, especially rookies in preseason. It happens and he got right back up, he's fine.

he got laid out, end of story, doesn't matter whatever else he did, that obviously means he probably needs to get stronger, and he obviously is tiny.

#2209435 Fabian Brunnstrom

Posted by stevkrause on 24 September 2011 - 07:19 PM

He's not waiver-exempt.

You really think someone will put a claim on him? He was a FA and didn't even get any bites, plus, they can designate him before the season starts and he won't have to clear (what is it, 7 or 10 days?) So, give him a contract and designate him before Oct and we're clear... that is, if he doesn't flat win the 14th roster spot... Babs seems pretty impressed with him...

Put him in Grand Rapids for this year where he can get top-6 minutes and continue to work on his consistency and work ethic. If he continues on the pace he's at, there will certainly be room for him on the Red Wing roster next year, and not as a grinder.

#2209876 The Official NHL Suspension Thread

Posted by ogreslayer on 26 September 2011 - 09:10 PM

Interesting tweet from EJ Hradek on the Wizniewski suspension...

EJHradek_NHL EJ Hradek
Among scouts, the knock on Wisniewski is his lack of on-ice smarts. During his career, he has done little to prove them wrong.

I for one am glad Kenny didn't go out & overpay for him like C'Bus did. Makes me like that Ian White signing more & more.

#2209807 Mursak is out

Posted by Drake_Marcus on 26 September 2011 - 02:56 PM

Chris Conner all the way!

A speedy checker... just what we have in abundance!

Brunnstrom please. Sign him dirt cheap and waive him if he falls on his face. He cost nothing to acquire, anyway.

#2209704 Mursak is out

Posted by Aussie_Wing on 25 September 2011 - 09:51 PM

Isn't there a rule that an injured player can't be exposed to waivers? In that case, can't the Wings put him on LTIR and bring up someone until he's better? Then when he gets better, they'll have to decide who to expose, IIRC.

I'm thinking Brunnstrom, but if he makes it and proves himself, they may not want to expose him.

Drew freaking Miller.
