#2346139 Nail Yakupov Goal Celebration.

I thought it was over the top because it wasn't the game-winning goal and he avoided celebrating with his teammates. 

#2320129 Flyers sign Weber to offer sheet: 14y/$110m ($56m 1st 4yrs)

Posted by Guest on 19 July 2012 - 03:16 AM

Its not Polie's call if they match it, rival or not, its the ownership, and that 20 million dollars Weber will be looking at next season that will dictate what they do. I could see if this were an offer south of 100 million, and less years, but the ownership of Nashville has shown time and time again they are afraid of long term financial commitments. I know you are a Ken Holland apologist, but lets be serious for a moment, we both know that Nashville has had the space to keep a lot of their stars, but they haven't, because of the tight purse strings of their ownership. And this would be a bold move, and even if it failed it would have been a good one, because they will not be able to afford other players had they matched. But it as I said every time the Wings names come up they are always off the mark and lose out.

You must be out of loop with Nashville's ownership. What you are saying was true 4 years ago, but that's not true anymore. They would have matched Suter's $93 million contract had they been given the chance. They can certainly match Weber's $100 million offer if they don't opt for the draft picks. If Holland offered sheeted Weber, they would most certainly matched... with a big smile and a pat on Kenny's back thanking him.

Your chicken little attitude and impatience is getting obnoxious. I can imagine what you would say if you stubbed your toe... "Damn you Holland!!1".

Seriously, it's getting old and your unrealistic expectations are proving ignorance.

#2319241 Red Wings Rebuilding and Adapting to Maintain Dominance

Posted by wingslionstigers on 15 July 2012 - 08:22 AM

I just don't understand why any of you guys want to trade for a forward right now.. We are loaded with forwards and have a ton of forward prospect depth. Our forward unit looks better than it has in years. The only trade that would even be worth looking into is for a defensemen, and trust me they have looked plenty you just don't here about it. Even a trade for a D just might not be worth it and only make our team worse. You guys need to get real and quit assuming we can trade a couple unproven players for a super star. We tried for a FA in Sutar, It didn't work so we will try next year. It may not work next year, but were not going to destroy our team to make a trade that all you guys bitching will end up bitching even more about.

#2316872 Def trade on the horizon

I keep checking LGW hoping to see a new SIGNED/TRADED thread. Right before it loads up I tell myself, "Here it comes..." Annnd nothing. Yet.

#2316696 Def trade on the horizon

Posted by stevkrause on 07 July 2012 - 08:52 AM

Can we get some people on record calling Cleary dead weight, so when he bounces back and has another 20 goal year, you can all eat crow? The guy is a warrior who gives it his all night in and night out and was still one of our best forwards come playoff time DESPITE playing on knees that were basically held together by twine and bubble gum... He had successful surgery and will come back with a bang this year, mark my words, and you can even bookmark this post.

RIP hero. We could use a little probert on this current team.

We actually did get a "little" Probert this offseason.

#2311274 CRAZZZZYYY Roster Idea

Posted by Bannedforlife on 29 June 2012 - 09:17 PM

Not that this is NHL 2013 nor would Columbus accept a bunch of junk, but I would love to acquire Nash somehow, along with getting rid of Franzen, Cleary, Mursak, Emmeton, Kindl, a prospect or two and draft picks... Man if some kind of combo of those players/picks would get Nash here, I would be on cloud 900! With the open spots we have now an then dumping Franzines and Cleary's salary, we could add Parise/Meuller/Semin along with having Nash....ya ya, total fantasy world, I know, but wow that would send a message to the NHL! :lol:

edit: nah, nevermind, I cannot fit all those guys under the Cap on capgeek....but if we lost out on the Parise sweeps and still acquired Nash we could get Semin and Meuller and Garrison and Suter...

also for some odd reason, I go to "cap calculator" on capgeek and Parise is not listed under NJD as a UFA....

so I came up with this crazy roster! (I only brought Sproul up because he was the next highest D on the prospects list....I let Quincey walk and I traded Kindl)

Alexander Semin ($5.500m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Rick Nash ($7.800m)
Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Damien Brunner ($1.000m)
Drew Miller ($0.838m) / Peter Mueller ($2.750m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m)
Gustav Nyquist ($0.875m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Brandon Prust ($1.200m)
Justin Abdelkader ($1.250m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m) /
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Ryan Suter ($8.000m)
Ian White ($2.875m) / Jason Garrison ($0.985m)
Brendan Smith ($0.875m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Ryan Sproul ($0.925m) /
Jimmy Howard ($2.250m)
Al Montoya ($0.875m)

SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $67,180,833; BONUSES: $320,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $3,019,167

If you think Garrison is going to sign anywhere for under a million dollars, you're on supercrack!

Meh. The Sarah McLachlan parody was funny, but I wouldn't describe it as awesome. Awesome will be epxerienced when Parise and Suter actually sign.

Here's the flip of this topic. Pens fans talking about us getting Parise and Suter...


Mostly "Duuurr-huuuur, who wanna live in Detroit? Derp, derp" type nonsense.

#2303141 Who's going to make it big if anyone?

Posted by Tim.D on 25 May 2012 - 08:09 AM

Marek Tvrdon future 2/3C. Pulkkinen will probably bust. Jurco and Jarnkrok will be good. Mrazek could be good, haven't seen much of him.
