#2429301 Bruins Re-Sign Rask for 8yr, 7m AAV

#2429245 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 10 July 2013 - 02:29 PM

Another day passes and Damien Brunner has STILL not signed with any other team. I really don't know what to make of it. At first I assumed he was trying to decide which team would suit him best. But come on it's been 6 days now, what more does he need to figure out? I wonder if those other teams are also not willing to pay him 3.5-4M? Cause if that is the case, then maybe there still is a slight slight chance of him remaining with Detroit, if Kenny can pull of a trade and create more cap space. It just seems to me that if he has zero interest in re-signing, he would've definitely signed with someone else by now. Maybe he's waiting it out to see what Kenny does.




#2427156 Wings interested in Morrow

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 05 July 2013 - 02:04 PM

Morrow showed he definitely has a lot left in the tank. But I just don't see where he would fit? IMO the only way we make this move is if we don't re-sign Brunner. And if I had to choose I'd take 27 year old brunner over 34 year old Morrow any day of the week




#2427023 Wings sign Stephen Weiss, 5-years, $24.5m

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 05 July 2013 - 01:28 PM

 

4.9 is a steal in a weak FA class when teams want to overspend.

Exactly




#2427014 Wings sign Stephen Weiss, 5-years, $24.5m

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 05 July 2013 - 01:26 PM

Personally I was hoping for Grabovski but Weiss brings a lot to the table as well. And will be a very nice fit for our system. Nice job Kenny atta boy




#2426234 Grabovski Bought Out

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 05 July 2013 - 12:15 AM

IMHO Grabovski > Weiss




#2425961 Players of Interest

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 04 July 2013 - 03:24 PM

In other news, according to Jim Matheson's Twitter, Weiss is looking for 6M/yr.

Seriously?? I really hope that's not true. If so, Weiss can go sign with someone else. 6M per year is outrageous




#2425531 Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 03 July 2013 - 04:29 PM

Well if they resign Cleary you can probably say goodbye to Tatar too.

Tatar is safe. When asked about which of the young guys will be permanent Red Wings next season Holland said, "Tatar, Nyquist, Andersson, Dekeyser, and Lashoff." It was on that hour special Q&A hosted by Mickey Redmond a few days back.




#2425043 Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 02 July 2013 - 07:46 PM

I like Bert. Cleary signing seems like a lot, but everyone from teammates to coaching to management seems to like him. He's a heart guy who gives his all every night. Good for the bottom six

Edit: I can't imagine 3x3 being true. If it is, its a little much

That's the problem though, we don't play him in the bottom 6. He played in the TOP 6 every game he played, which is obviously quite ridiculous and yet another reason why I and most others don't want him back




#2425034 Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 02 July 2013 - 07:38 PM

 

I may be one of the biggest Cleary fans out there, but if he gets re-signed for 3yrs at 3mil I'll be pretty pissed. A 2yr deal for 2.5 or less would've been all I'd like to see. I hope Helene is a bit off base. The Brunner # is good.

If Cleary gets 3 mill I think I will officially rage. The guy should be in the 1.5-2mill TOPS. Any more than that and Kenny is throwing money down the toilet. Although I must re-state we should NOT be re-signing him to ANY contract




#2425026 Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 02 July 2013 - 07:26 PM

I'm glad Big Bert is coming back. When healthy he brings so much to the table. And plays really well with Pavel (who doesn't though?haha). And he's one of our best shootout guys! If worse come to worse and he re-injures his back, we obviously have a lot of options to take his place. Love me some Bertuzzi!




#2424898 Report: Red Wings out on Lecavalier - signs with Philly 5@4.5 per

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 02 July 2013 - 05:47 PM

5 years 4.5 per. I would have taken that

Wowww only 4.5?? Makes it much harder to swallow now. I know the term is long for a 34 year old, but come on at 4.5 Kenny should've been able to keep us in the mix...




#2424870 Red Wings won't pursue David Clarkson

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 02 July 2013 - 05:38 PM

Well, in my eyes that's even more disappointing than not getting Vinny. I really wanted Clarkson, but looks like he's asking for more than Holland is willing to pay. Personally, I think he's the type of player we should overpay to get... For now I'm gonna stick with the "in Kenny we trust" philosophy, but so far this has been quite a disappointing day...




#2424328 Hawks re-sign Bickell (4 years 16 mill)

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 01 July 2013 - 01:48 AM

Well, so much for us getting Bickell. Never really thought it would happen anyway. 4 mill a year def sounds about right.




#2424169 2013 NHL Entry Draft Discussion

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 30 June 2013 - 06:42 PM

He is 5-9/160ish and not a scorer. There are far better prospects at every position still on the board.

Umm, actually he's 6'0 180 lbs
