#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.

This makes me feel warm inside. Never thought it would even be an option.

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)

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

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

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.

#2608326 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by GoWings1905 on 18 May 2015 - 12:27 PM

Matt Shepard ‏@ShepMatt 2m2 minutes ago

according to @pham1717 the Sabres have offered Babcock north of 5-mill


Writer who follows the Sabres... Talking to Shep right now... Wow, that's a lot of dough


That's insane for a coach. I want Blashill anyways, so take the money and run Babs.

I think I'm just gonna keep posting this:

#2592518 Marchenko to play Game 1 in the playoffs

Posted by Superman54 on 11 April 2015 - 09:16 PM

Honestly his production has not been what was sought out to be by management IMO. His bonehead play in Quebec didn't help his popularity much either, so start the righty and see how game 1 plays out. It could light a fire under Smith's arse if anything...

Assuming this is Smith sitting out

would have never thought stevie Y would be on the joking side of things

he was captain serious before Toews could walk


Actually Yzerman always had a sense of humor.  He was one of the biggest smartasses on the Wings, but he kept it pretty well out of the public.  You didn't really hear stories until later in his career, and especially after he retired.  


Though there is the infamous moment of him taunting Domi from the bench with the heavyweight belt gesture after Domi's rematch with Probert.


Toews just seems like he has zero personality.
