#2621374 Wings lose scout to leafs

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 23 July 2015 - 06:02 PM

I doubt very much that Babcock is hiring scouts, Shanhan wanting to poach from the Redwings scouting team is entirely different and very likely.


#2620538 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 14 July 2015 - 06:23 PM

Did it sound like he wants out of Detroit in that, or is it just because its being translated?


I remember reading similar type interviews with Tats when he was pushing for roster spot and negotiating last summer. I think its a combo the translation and I also I think Jurco is just being honest in his assessment of the situation.


#2619191 Landon Ferraro re-signs with a 1 year deal

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 06 July 2015 - 10:19 AM

I think Andersson is waived before Ferraro.

2 years circa $4m, Datsyuk's contract is up then, cap will be up. Give him a 'show me' contract.


#2617330 Preliminary Red Wings Training Camp Roster

A guy from the Korean National team..wow. Didn't even know they had a hockey program!

Jim Paek, Blashill's former assistant in GR is the senior programme's head coach:


#2612973 Free agents this off season

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 03 June 2015 - 07:28 AM

I'm likely in the minority but I don't want the Wings to sign any UFAs. The class is weak to say the least.

New coach and potential new roles for Jurco/Weiss + Pullkinnen in the line up means that signing a UFA this year would just crowd the roster and offer very little.


#2610014 Ovechkin Top 5 Goal Scorer all time?

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 25 May 2015 - 07:16 AM

I've been thinking about this too, was listening to MvsW the other week and they said Ovi was 9th in scoring since 1992 (NHL debut in 2005), fair to say he doesn't reach Gretzky but he might reach Bossy and Hull. Even if he doesn't, in an era where scoring is down, goalie pads are bigger etc he will surely go down as one of the greatest scorers the game has ever seen.

Our next coach! Hows that for motivation.
 

I have watched this at least 10 times over the last year.

#2598474 Datsyuk Finalist for Lady Byng

Forward only trophy..
Don't worry he had plenty of hardware to retire with (;

Lids was a finalist in 2011

Expect the Leafs to write a 'blank check' to Babs to fill the roles of both head coach, and general manager.

I can't see Babcock going to the Leafs, he'll got all manner of riches but I don't see the fit. I'm still hopeful that he stays with Wings but not 100% confident.


#2577538 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 02 March 2015 - 01:16 PM

Kenny's done a good job here. All in we've not given any real assets today and brought in some solid pieces to strengthen our team.


#2574832 Janmark-Nylen

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 25 February 2015 - 05:08 PM

Watched him on play on TV last night, his team won 4-3 on penalty shots. He had three primary assists. Looked really good. Looking forward to seeing him in GR.


#2569593 Nabokov traded back to San Jose

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 10 February 2015 - 10:14 AM

Heard about this last night.  Can someone please help me understand something; when it's stated that a player was acquired for "future considerations" as part of the acquisition, what does future considerations actually mean?  Is this just a nice way of getting rid of a player and pretending that the trading team got something in return?  Is there an official process or piece put in place, so down the road that team has to officially consider a trade offer?  I am unclear to what this actually means?? Thanks in advance for any insight.

Future considerations is usually dependent on something happening beyond the deal. A player can't be given up for nothing so I would imagine the deal is something like if Nabakov signs a new deal then San Jose would need to give something. He's retiring so I would imagine there's nothing going to be exchanged. An example of this would be when we got Draper for $1


#2560103 Winter Classic 2014 - Where are they now?

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 01 January 2015 - 09:07 AM

HI guys, don't very often start a new topic but been having a bit of fun watching the "Road to the Winter Classic 2014" this morning and put together this article on where the stars of the show are now.

 

 
All for a bit of fun, a lot of you are much better at photoshop etc than me (I used MS paint) though we could all come up with some more of these type of screenshots.
