#1995229 6th Defenseman

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 06 June 2010 - 11:51 AM

I doubt Conboy would be the wings 6th guy. They may sign him to be like a Janik type from this year but Conboy could hardly crack Carolinas line up so what are his chances with the wings?

That's very true,but the thing that would be nice about Conboy is that he can play forward too.Played as a forward during his short time up with the 'Canes last year.

How many of those guys are actually UFAs though?

I know Erskine isn't but I would like him here.

The list should be good now.Sorry about that.Now take a look.

Yeah looking through the free agent list I thought Boychuk would be a possibility but I was thinking he would get a bit of a raise and be a bit to expensive for the wings cap situation.

I'm thinking our 6th dman this year is going to be getting no more then about 1.2 million or so.

He's gonna have to be cheap.Here's some guys that pop into my head in addition to the guys you mentioned:

Sean O'Donnell-Veteran Presence,still physical and fights
Andy Sutton-May be too expensive,but he would be my choice
Jay Leach-Cheap,big,physical,fights
Tim Conboy-Same as Leach
Aaron Johnson-Someone mentioned him earlier.He'd be a good fit
Willie Mitchell-Main problem with him is $$$
Carlo Colaiacovo-Physical and good puck handler.Main knock is injury history.
Jay McKee-Would be a good mentor for Ericsson.Classic stay at home guy.

Guys I was really get FED up with the former wings puns!

Thought some of them were just TERRIBLE

Perhaps it is time to be Dionne with these puns?!?!

Perhaps we should all just CHELI out....

Before somebody loses their LIDS

Don't vladder yourself.If you're not Downey with this,leave.

I appreciate the Kindl gesture, but it's getting a Lilja late. I think its time for me to Joakim Homer, so I'm going to bid you Osgood night

Datsounds good.I'm in sort of a janik myself,as I need to get rest soon too.Zetter hit the hay as well.

Well played sir. I Almqvist thought this game was over.

I guess my reply came Justin the Nick of time

I honestly don't know how to respond to that. Seriously, I'm Drewing a blank.

When it came to looking for an idea to reply to that,I was basically babbing for apples.I'm in kind of a Jiri to get a reply posted.


#1993535 Bettman

Who would even think of raising their voice at Ron MacLean?He's the calmest,most well-mannered guy out there.Seriously how could someone get angry with him?

One things for sure. We're gonna be seeing Cleary skies for a long time.

Seems you came to this conclusion with relative Eaves.

If we're lucky Hurricane Hudler will shift direction - heading south into Florida...With a change of the barometric pressure we could potentially see a light sprinkling of St.Louis heading our way instead.

That was an epic post.Will the aftermath of the shift of Hurricane Hudler bring about a Konopkik"cataclysm" back in Detroit?


#1993512 Ville Leino Appreciation Thread

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 02 June 2010 - 11:35 PM

Arent we all gonna look foolish when Leino single handedly wins the cup and the conn smythe to go with it. On a serious note he has looked really good, I dont know what his actual ice time was tonight but it seemed like he played 45 minutes, he was all over the ice.

Amazing how a guy develops when he doesn't have to worry about getting ran every shift...

Hudler for whoever.


#1992639 Lidstrom Signs 1-Year Contract Extension

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 01 June 2010 - 04:37 PM

well now that lidstrom has signed we have a lot more insight into cap space and how the roster might look next year :)

Now onto the Bertuzzi and Holmstrom situations.Things will definitely be more clear after their situations are handled.

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 01 June 2010 - 04:01 PM

Sorry - I missed the subtleties; I'm used to the "Emoticons" ;)


Very reasonable indeed...Like others have said - if Nick were greedy he could've gone elsewhere, and have gotten $7 million plus - however he's a good guy, a class act, and thankfully a Detroit Red Wing for life.

Another thing Kenny can cross of on his offseason to-do list.Now for that tough guy...


#1992601 Lidstrom Signs 1-Year Contract Extension

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 01 June 2010 - 03:46 PM

$6.2 mil seems reasonable especially for Lidstrom.Welcome back Nick.
