#2681610 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by greene709 on 01 July 2016 - 03:02 PM

Vanek at 3.5-4 million on a 1 year, Brouwer at 4.5 for 4 years, McGinn at 3.5 for 4 years... or if those players truly didn't have any interest in the Wings, let Athansiou play real minutes on the third line.  Helm's deal screws the young guys, unless he plays 2C, and that would be him sorely over-valued.

Think he just did better on Vanek than you thought was a good idea. Holland is such an idiot!

I had come to grips with the fact Nielson was likely our target after missing out on Stamkos but the Helm contract over signing an Okposso or Lucic is still stinging.

Not every player wants to come to Detroit. Lucic was going to Edmonton before today, anyone not seeing that is an idiot. Okposo was also reported to sign with the Sabres as of last night. No surprise again.

That's with the Isles, he's playing with the Wings now...

He's playing for the Wings so I guess he just forgets how to play hockey now...

This place sometimes.

#2679613 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

radulov's agent claims he is still a free agent and hasn't signed in the KHL yet


it would make zero sense to sign before July 1st

Does Radulov have some sort of magical powers to affect Larkin enough to overpower Zetterberg, Blashill, Kronwall's influence? 


It's like the Wings have had a good tradition of players for a few decades now and RADULOV of all people is going to come in and destroy all of that in a month or something.


Come on- the organization would never let it get to that.

Larkin is going to be a stud.

I have to keep telling myself he's only 19.

Radulov would not score less than 40 points in the NHL in a full season. That just won't happen even in our anemic offense. The guy is a two-way (this I'm not sure about but he did gather Selke votes in the NHL) stud who dominates his league and in international competition. When the NHL stars went over there during the lockout his production was right below Malkin and above guys like Datsyuk.  It's not unreasonable to think he'd be a top 12-15 winger in the NHL near the level of someone like Panarin or Kucharov. Most russian fans put him above those guys anyway. I don't think he'd produce as well as Panarin beause not every team has a Kane to play with. The issue isn't this guys talent.. it's that he's a grade A ******. Typically that isn't our style.

50-58 points on a team like ours. 60-70 points on a top 10 team. And in today's unfortunate NHL that's big time first line status.

If they have to use the company name they should have gone with Little Caesars Colosseum. ;)

I hate Shaw, but I can't agree with this suspension because of the hypocrisy.  Players say bad things to each other all the time that we can't hear or see on TV.  I doubt what he said qualifies as the worst comment in NHL history.  If he said it in a pile of players, there wouldn't be any suspension.  Stupid suspension.

This league has become a freaking joke, no wonder people are losing interest in what used to be a real mans game.


Next bring out the pink hockeysticks and the don't touch me signs on a players jersey. Soon our game will turn into soccer on ice for the same questionable audience.

I think the bigger story is that the word "***" is censored on this website.

Posted by kliq on 20 April 2016 - 11:02 AM

As soon as Chicago singed Toews and Kane to those ridicoulas deals, the writing was on the wall. Reminds me of when the Ravens signed Flacco to a 28 million deal and lost half their team to never be the same again. Not that Chicago has reached that low by any stretch, but I think their cup run is over.


While that may be true but did anyone realistically expect the Hawks bowing out in 5 games? The Blues are a fantastic team and are playing the brand of hockey I like but this outcome has to be surprising. If you think about it with the right calls in game 2 they would have swept! the champions already. To me that should be a big story and raise some questionmarks for the Hawks?


Not me, St. Louis has never shown to be a team built for the playoffs with their constant first round exits. Hopefully for them, this a the start of a team that can actually win in the playoffs.

Though, lets not put it past Chicago to win 3 in a row. Its not over until its over.
