#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

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

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.

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

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

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

#2424005 Red Wings select RW Anthony Mantha 20th Overall

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 30 June 2013 - 04:23 PM

Such a great pick, especially considering we got another draft pick out of it. If this kid can put on 15-20 lbs of muscle WATCH OUT. Either way tho what a steal at 20!

#2419284 CHL moving to ban European goalies

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 11 June 2013 - 06:03 PM

So because European tenders are selected instead of Canadian ones they are making a rule basically forcing teams to pick Canadian ones even though they might not be as good or as qualified as the European tenders?  Smells like Affirmative Action and Diversity laws here in the states.  Two thumbs down CHL.



It's actually much worse than affirmative action cause at least that is put in place to help struggling people make money to help them live. This is a sport that is fully based on who is more skilled, and the most skilled get to play. This rule is disgusting and they should be ashamed of themselves. Beyond ridiculous

#2417362 Which UFA would help the Wings the most?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 03 June 2013 - 01:37 PM

There's definitely some decent options out there. But out of all the available free agents I think adding a guy like David Clarkson would be a perfect fit for what we need. The guy can score goals in bunches and is tough as nails. Put him on a line with Pavel or Hank and not only would he help out offensively but he would have their backs if any cheap dirty stuff goes down. What do you guys think? Who would you love to see Kenny sign the most?

#2416622 Datsyuk: I want to sign extension with Wings this summer

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 31 May 2013 - 04:35 PM

Obviously this is beyond amazing news! Pavel is such a unique and special player. Can't wait to watch him hoist the cup a few more times before he hangs em up. One day #13 will be hanging in the rafters right next to #5 #19 #9 #12 #10 #7 #1
