Where is Z on your list? He has spent a hell of a lot of time getting absolutely nothing done out there.

Agreed completely. It's a shame some people have to flaunt it so arrogantly.

Whats a shame is some people cant just ignore it and have to make a big deal about it, and this is coming from a not so religious person.

I cant even imagine what the families are going through. Im just speechless.

#2197245 Salei to Play in Russia..

Lilja only fell because he was tied up with Souray. Souray was the one who lost his balance after getting hit in the head.

Takedown=/=Win. Lame fight.

#2197117 This is why Commodore was the best signing ever...

The CommodoreUSA twitter is even in on this and supporting him 100%, this is awesome :lol:

#2196160 Jason Arnott

The Wings already have Bertuzzi and Holmstrom in the slow down the top lines role.

Bert isnt slow and Homer bounces around in the bottom 6 every once in a while. I still wouldnt want Arnott though, he isnt nearly as good as he used to be. Im liking the whole bigger and younger trend that has been going on anyways.

there is the other side to this, Huds could put up 20 goals and 60 points next year and prove us wrong.


#2193085 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by cjm502 on 30 June 2011 - 11:35 PM

I fail to see how anyone can call this deal "bad" at this particular moment. It's not hurting anything. Red Wings have plenty of cap space to afford it, and lots of $$ cash left to improve the team. (No Kenny isn't getting Richards, never was)

How do we know what went on behind the scenes? It sounds like Holland wanted Ericsson for about $1.8 to $2.0 million. Ericsson is in the press speaking how he wants the chance to advance to the next level. Ericsson know's he'd easily get $3.75+ or more tomorrow. So really he took a discount.

Knowing this, Holland probably said:
"Okay, $3.25 then, but if you don't progress, I am packaging you up and trading you! - Ericsson, do you understand that I will trade you if you do not meet my expectations, right?"

Ericsson - "Yes Mr. Holland, I understand!"

[worse case scenario, seven months later Ericsson has not improved, Holland trades him with a pick/prospect for a nice return]

In this market, Holland can get a nice return on Big Rig with this current contract. This is called "asset management". It might not look good right now, but I am sure Kenny has a plan.

I still fail to see how this is a good signing. There might not be any good free agents this year to spend money on, but what about the next 3 years? Im sure we would love to have the cap space we blew on Ericsson back, and you say its not hurting us...

Nope, nothing to appreciate about Holland right now.

#2192967 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by cjm502 on 30 June 2011 - 09:45 PM

I just hope Holland realized how pissed off his entire fan base is over a total s*** move he made. I hope he understands how bad he f***ed up. I hope Holland feels like garbage for giving Ericsson over double of what he is worth when that money could have gone towards Wiz or a forward to improve the team.

Wow Holland, I wouldn't even expect Burke to f*** up this bad. I'm legitimately very pissed off right now. This has to he a joke.

I say Holland gets up behind the podium and starts auctioning off Hudler. Its worth a shot.

I would feel bad giving up more than 2 firsts for any player. I dont like moving draft picks one bit.
