#2532443 Dekeyser/Tatar status update

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 18 July 2014 - 05:15 AM

I'd be very surprised if we sign either of these guys for more than $2M per year, look at Smith and Nyquists' contracts over the last two years as a guide.


#2521563 Emmerton-ov: Cory heading to KHL

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 23 May 2014 - 07:50 PM

Any chance Emmerton can take Joakim Andersson along with him?


Why would they need two first line centres?


#2491570 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 06 March 2014 - 04:49 AM

I like this trade. Jarnkrok may develop in to a great player, but before the deadline I wanted make sure that come March 6th we still had Tatar, Nyquist, Jurco, Sproul, Oullet, Mrazek, Mantha, Pullkinnen... I prefer these guys so it's not like we sold the family china. Eaves wasn't back in the summer, so effectively a pick and a prospect for a proven centre isn't a high price.


#2483979 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 15 February 2014 - 04:15 AM

The way things are going for us, after the Olympic break 'the first line'?


#2477056 Sammy Waived

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 25 January 2014 - 02:41 PM

@Bill_Roose: The #RedWings have placed veteran forward Mikael Samuelsson on waivers today.

Right decision I think


#2471999 Look who's top in GR scoring

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 11 January 2014 - 07:30 AM

No love for Teemu Pulkkinen? He's doing great his first season in NA.


I've been high on this guy since the draft, hope he can continue at the rate he could be a future star. I've always though that he would either eventually play in the wings top 6 or completely disappear.


#2451317 Tootoo Waived

Interesting that he was the first to go, obviously no takers in trade.


#2430180 Brendan Smith signs 2-year, $2.525m contract with Red Wings

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 15 July 2013 - 03:17 PM

Great cap hit for a player that is only going to get better.


#2421312 Dreger: Filppula looking for $5.5m/season over at least 7 years

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 22 June 2013 - 02:27 AM

I'm of the opinion that if we want to improve and have a legit chance at the cup we need to change the roster. Does that mean Flip is the odd one out? Well the fact he asked 5+ million over 7/8 years it certainly makes it easy for the Redwings brass to cut him loose. He simply isn't worth that, but even if he asked for 3.5/4 million for 3 years would our team progress if we signed him back? I don't think so, I think we'd be back where we started.

#2338238 Tomas Holmstrom Retires

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 07 January 2013 - 02:34 PM

To honour him could we have 96 painted in the crease? Just to remind any visiting goalies that are getting cocky because he's not there any more.


#2331104 Drew Miller

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 09 October 2012 - 02:48 PM

isn't that even a bit of a stretch? i was thinking that my local CHL team brought in someone from the EIHL and they had dominated there and was just a 2nd/3rd liner in the central hockey league.


The British players are considerably below the ECHL level but certainly all the players I can think of from NA are all ECHL standard with some having decent AHL experience. Drew should tear it up.


#2330973 Drew Miller

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 08 October 2012 - 03:28 PM

That ruins any chance my Flyers had of being the top team in Scotland, really looking forward to Drew coming to Fife! Probably the closest I'll come to a Red Wings game!!


#2306044 Why Evander Kane is Worth the Price

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 08 June 2012 - 03:02 PM

Why is he being discussed so much lately? He's not going to leave Winnipeg. They'd be one of the worst managed teams to let him go.


I agree, Atlanta management may have traded him, but Winnipeg want to build a franchise not dismantle one.


#2250407 How Would You Fix the All Star Game?

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 28 January 2012 - 08:17 AM

It wouldn't restructure how teams qualify for the playoffs, it would only determine what conference has home ice advantage in the finals.

I understood that, but surely the overall standings are a better way of deciding which conference winner gets home ice?


#2250400 How Would You Fix the All Star Game?

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 28 January 2012 - 03:29 AM

Use Eastern/Western format and let them play for home ice advantage in SCF. Schedule the game a bit earlier in the seasons (e.g. Christmas time) such that all the players are interested. It is THAT simple. Still we will not see it.


Think the system we have for playoffs works fine and makes for a more interesting season. I see no reason for restructuring our playoff qualification system in order to make an exhibition game more interesting.
