#2619962 Gustav Nyquist signed 4-Year Deal $4.75 mill AAV

Posted by e_prime on 10 July 2015 - 01:58 PM

So this deal will take him into his 30s. If it is under $5M I will be surprised.

4.75 -- not too shabby.




#2613197 Which Sweater Do RWs Retire First - Feds or Ozzy?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 04 June 2015 - 07:37 PM

Unlikely it'll be either.  But if it's going to be one of those two it should be Fedorov. 

 

Osgood was a big part of the team but is not the caliber of player that the Wings retire jerseys for.




#2618455 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by darkmanx on 01 July 2015 - 05:23 PM

RIchards had 14 points, in 24 playoff games last year.

 

Was there best forward against Anaheim as well.




#2618397 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by darkmanx on 01 July 2015 - 04:38 PM

 

More Green on TSN: "I was willing to take a little bit less on term to go to a great organization that I’m extremely excited to play for."




#2618354 Now for a #2 C.

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 July 2015 - 04:26 PM

Can we please sign a winger that would remove Abdelkader from the top line?  


Are you living in the past? Abby hits everything that moves, he battles for pucks goes into corners, and is coming off a 23 goal 44 point season. Not to mention this is a contract year for him, so he may even put up 55 points


#2618045 Phil Kessel Traded to Penguins

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 01 July 2015 - 01:34 PM

About as many as he normally does...maybe less. 

 

You know how many goals Chris Kunitz scored on Crosby's wing?  About as many as he did before he was on Crosby's wing. 

 

Hossa on Datsyuk's wing?  Same has before he was on Datsyuk's wing. 

 

Playing on Crosby's wing isn't going to make Kessel into Ovechkin. 

Uh....no.

 

Hossa scored 29 in the year previous then scored 40 when paired with Datsyuk. Then in the years following 24, 25, 29. What was the difference? Playing with Datsyuk.

 

Kunitz has got as high as 35 with Crosby. Previously with the Ducks his highest was 25. Also the mean number is higher during his time with Crosby.

 

Did you not think someone would check it?

"@leahhextall: With Kessel gone now just one player on Toronto's roster makes more than Babcock!"


#2616674 Wings re-sign RFA Joakim Andersson

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 June 2015 - 04:24 PM

Don't mind this at all. Cheap can be waived if needed. Good signing

 

Cheap?  I wish I could make that kind of money by being a waste of space.  




#2608611 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by RedWingsRox on 19 May 2015 - 03:48 PM

Great news ... please accept Buffalo's offer.  Let's move on already, next man up ... congratulations Blashill.  




#2571443 Does Kenny Hate Mickey?

Posted by rick zombo on 17 February 2015 - 10:58 AM

That happened because there was a long stretch of action with no whistles. I took it more as a comment about how Ken was so busy calling the play-by-play that there was no room for Mickey to get a comment in.


#2569489 Nabokov traded back to San Jose

Posted by WingsallTheway on 09 February 2015 - 02:36 PM

I still remember how pumped I was when Detroit signed him, 

 

then how frustrated I was when NYI claimed him right after. 

 

I wonder what would have changed. He was a good  goalie at the time




#2563114 TB's Paquette learns the hard way, don't start **** w Chara

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 14 January 2015 - 11:13 AM

None of this would have happened if McGrattan hadn't been on waiveerrrrzzzz.


#2563097 TB's Paquette learns the hard way, don't start **** w Chara

Posted by Jesusberg on 14 January 2015 - 09:48 AM

If I had a gun with two bullets, and I was in a room with Hitler, Bin Laden and Jack Edwards, I would shoot Jack Edwards twice.




#2562716 Mixed Feelings - Shea Weber whoops Matt Cooke

Posted by gcom007 on 12 January 2015 - 05:17 PM

I'm over the Zetterberg thing. Have been for years. Don't really care.

 

That said, I have to say that fight was underwhelming.




#2562040 McGratton on waivers

Posted by kipwinger on 09 January 2015 - 02:45 PM

I hope not one team claims him

 

If I were Buffalo I'd claim him, and the next time I played Boston I'd finally pay Lucic back for running over Ryan Miller. 

 

Then I'd waive him again.
