#2533262 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by rick zombo on 29 July 2014 - 08:40 AM

Holy overpayment batman!


It's not overpayment enough to call it overpayment.


A touch high? Maybe.


Fair market value +/-? Absolutely.


It's criminal that Holland got Sheahan signed for less than 1M. But he just couldn't get away with low-balling Tatar.

Little higher then what I was thinking. But I agree it's a good deal for both sides.

I mean, in a full season Tatar's going to give you 20+ goals.  To me 20 goals is worth 2.75 million, every day of the week.  20+ goals and shutdown defense will get you 5 million plus.  Ask Kesler or O'Reilly. 


Tatar's getting paid what he should.

ok, ok, no more Diesel... :lol:
I said its too much so he better get 20-30 goals to prove he is worth it. If he never gets 20 then its way over payment. Closer to 30 and he is worth it for sure! In the end I am glad he is still a Red Wing! Go Tatar!

So 30 goal scorers make less than $3million? I understand the sentiment but your argument is invalid. If he scores 20 goals he is worth the contract. If he scores 30 he is performing way higher than his contract.

#2527560 It's too bad about us having Weiss...

Posted by GoWings! on 01 July 2014 - 09:04 AM

Anyone here mentioning Filppula being a Stastny is ridiculous. The guy was nothing more than a 3rd line guy that couldn't take a hit nor throw one. I don't care if he scores 50 for Tampa cause he would never have scored 50 for us, ever.

#2520251 New Michigan Sports TV Channel, Signed Deal w/Griffins

Posted by drumnj on 13 May 2014 - 04:49 PM

So some pretty substantial news in the Michigan sporting world.  Michigan Entertainment Sports is going to be launched this fall on various cable providers in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.  They have signed a 3 year deal with the Grand Rapids Griffins and plan to pickup games from smaller college schools, not in the Big Ten, minor and junior level teams along with High School sports across the state.

Should be interesting to see what will become of this station, but good news for Wings and Griffins fans.  They are literally brand new, as they don't have anything on their site, http://mes-tv.com/

However they have another blog like site, here http://mymes.us/

Here is a quick bio of them on LinkedIn:  http://www.linkedin....tainment-sports

#2520046 Canada can support 3 more teams in 20yrs

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 May 2014 - 08:13 PM

Expansion is a terrible idea.


30 teams is already a lot and there are too many "non traditional hockey markets" still somehow holding on to teams.  

#2519861 3 Words To Describe This Organization...

Posted by kipwinger on 09 May 2014 - 02:18 PM

Pure f****** Class. 


Per Malik:  "On Wednesday May 7th, 2014, Kelly Rothe, made it know about her surgery she was about to undertake, the following day the Detroit Red Wings organization brought Kelly and her family down to The Joe for a special private dinner. There she was surprised by local Detroit band, Kaleido, who gave her a private acoustic set. Then they took her to the Red Wings locker room where her favorite player was there waiting to surprise her."


My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor, and my aunt passed away from breast cancer.  It's absolutely mind-blowing how difficult the decision to have this procedure must be.  Especially for a guy, like me. 


So to see her choke up and say "you don't even know" when they ask what the Wings' gesture means to her...Jesus Christ.

I think the Kings are the perfect team for him. I'm not sure we'd be a great fit.

#2518587 scenario: if McLellan gets fired, bring him back as PP coach ?

Posted by DeGraa55 on 01 May 2014 - 03:57 AM

I wouldn't be surprised to see him fires but if he is I think he will get a head coachin gig somewhere.

But to answer the question....yes I would take him back.

#2515843 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by beachwing on 25 April 2014 - 03:47 PM

The question with Mule is this:

Does he take us closer to being cup contender or farther away from it?

No denying what a talent and times unstoppable force he can be. BUT the constant guessing of which mule is going to show up takes its toll from the top down.

Wish he was always trying even if not successful. I think his anxiety issues + pressure have really done him in last few years.

#2515806 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by The Greek on 25 April 2014 - 01:55 PM

Seems like the majority of the people here enjoy conclusion jumping.
I don't like Franzen either. He should be bought out after this season. I'd've said that about Weiss, but I'd sooner have Weiss over Franzen. Johan is a waste of salary and space. I'm just wondering what's with the inconsistencies in opinions I see.
"He sucks during the season! He's only good during the playoffs!"
"He sucks during the playoffs! He's only good during the season!"
I agree that all that really matters is the Cup, but a lot of people don't realize how stupid they sound. So yes, I agree that Franzen should be off the team, but he's a good reason why the team got to the playoffs in the first place.


#2514206 Redwings crowd tonight

Posted by GoWings1905 on 22 April 2014 - 11:02 PM

The crowd was great early. Not a whole hell of a lot to be excited about when your team comes out lacking energy in their first home playoff game. It was still pretty consistently noisy even when the Wings fell behind, but there was hardly much to cheer about.

Not a huge fan of booing either and I personally didn't, but those boos after the first period tonight were entirely justified.

Well I got some bad news for you then, Got this email a couple hours ago about tonights game, looks like glow sticks. 

That is soooooo lame. Like no one over the age of 10 likes glow sticks!! They look cool for the intro that's it. Nothing looks better then freakin towels I hate whoever's idea it is to use these dumb glow sticks. They better have towels for game 4.
