#2345039 1/22 GDT : Stars 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by cupforwings on 22 January 2013 - 09:35 PM

We're in a lot of trouble if we can barely compete with teams like Columbus and Dallas

Come on man.  You act like these teams aren't competitive.  If anything, the games so far this season has shown every team is competitive.  No game is easy, for any team.  (except for that first game for St. Louis).

#2344537 Red Wings sign D Kent Huskins to 1-year, $750k contract

Posted by cupforwings on 22 January 2013 - 01:31 PM

Solid signing, given the situation.  People here will hate Holland no matter what.  THe guy is top 3 GM in hockey, and he proves it year in and year out.  We will be competitive this year.

#2321661 Semin

What if Kenny trades Flip, Nyquist and a 1st for Yandle. Then signs Doan and Semin...

My Custom Lineup
Shane Doan ($5.500m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Alexander Semin ($5.500m)
Mikael Samuelsson ($3.000m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Johan Franzen ($3.955m)
Danny Cleary ($2.800m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m)
Patrick Eaves ($1.200m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.800m) / Jordin Tootoo ($1.900m)
Drew Miller ($0.838m) / Jan Mursak ($0.550m)
Keith Yandle ($5.250m) / Kyle Quincey ($3.775m)
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Brendan Smith ($0.875m) / Ian White ($2.875m)
Jakub Kindl ($0.883m)
Jimmy Howard ($2.250m)
Jonas Gustavsson ($1.500m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $69,433,712; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $766,288

That would be a bad trade. If Flip and Nyquist are going anywhere it will be fore Bobby Ryan. Yandle isn't worth that.

#2316082 Semin

Posted by cupforwings on 05 July 2012 - 08:28 PM

I don't understand how people can say Semin and Doan wouldn't help... Last year, the wings were a top 10 offense. Holland has already upgraded the offense by adding Samuelsson, TooToo, and Brunner. Basically, a bigger version of last years already good team. If we were able to add Semin, it would add another dimension to the offense. In my opinion it is a no brainer, especially if we get him a relatively good cap hit. Doan would take it to another level, potentially giving us the best offense in the League. Parise isn't worth his contract, and Semin is equally as good, if not better. Offensively, we can still be a juggernaut if we get Semin or Semin and Doan.

Obviously, the big question is on Defense.

I actually think we played pretty well for the last two periods. We carried the play and got a lot of scoring opportunities. They got some lucky bounces. Thats just the way it goes sometimes. I guarantee if we play like that again, we will win more times than not.

#2215893 Hudler?

Posted by cupforwings on 17 October 2011 - 08:44 AM

This early I don't think Hudler has done enough to raise his trade value any. Maybe get closer to the deadline and see how he is than. Of course than the question may turn to whether the Wings will want to trade him when the time comes. If he can improve and get back to his form from like 08 than I'd be all for keeping him and not making a trade what would possibly see the Wings take on more Cap this season. Once this season ends after all the contracts are up that are do to be over this season and before we re-sign anyone or sign any UFA's; If I did the math right the Wing will have somewhere in the ball park of $30 Million and that is depending on what happens with the cap. Personally I'd rather see the Wings save that money for the off-season and make a big splash in Free Agency. When Mursak comes back if Emmerton is doing well enough than perhaps the Wings can look at tradeing Huds for a draft pick or something and free up that space right away. The Wings have enough depth in Offense to be able to help carry Hudler's load depending on how well he improves between now and the deadline. Just my 2 cents, this is an issue that I have been thinking about to along with some other ones throughout this season that the Wings can possibly make small adjustments to the team as we see some of the older players like Liddy, Holmsy, and Bert get older and closer to retirement.

4 points in 4 games is already looking better then last year. You would really just trade Hudler for a draft pick? That draft pick would most likely never become anything in the NHL. Really terrible idea.

#2176730 Subliminal Sidney Crosby Messages in NHL commercials?

Posted by cupforwings on 18 May 2011 - 09:00 AM

No, because if Crosby is done, now we will hear that he's the greatest to ever play the game if only he could have finished his career. Whereas if he finished his career everyone would realize he's just a talented player but not nearly the greatest.

Crosby is more then just another talented player... The guy is a beast, is 23 years old, and was on pace for 120 or more points. I hate Crosby as much as the next guy, but he is one of the most talented players of all time. Hopefully he is able to recover and keep putting up monster points like he was this year.

#2169942 Game 6 Line-Up

Posted by cupforwings on 08 May 2011 - 11:14 PM

If Babcock plays Hudler over Modano, I will f***** lose it. What is Hudler good at? He's small, not physical, slow, and doesn't even shoot the puck. Modano is big, fast, and has a leathal shot. I guess even in the NHL coaches have players they just like for some reason. I mean, predicting 70 points from Hudler this year was bad enough....

I'm surprised this thread isn't titled: Question: Why do Wings fans hate the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions Vancouver Canucks?

too bad Howie had to let in that weaksauce goal at the end

#2057453 How about these lines?

Posted by cupforwings on 04 November 2010 - 11:46 AM

sorry, but no. Pav and Hank together make the team better. Our secondary line is a force. Our third line is coming together finally. And our 4th line has been great. Why change up a lineup that is 6-2-1? I don't get this thread.

If the wings blocked as many shots as the stars, our whole team would be injured
