Congrats Flashy just awesome, awesome work.

 

I must admit that Slocal - his other GDTs were more impressive esp. Southpark + Star Trek theme - guy has done some pretty nice work also, that South Park theme had me cracking up *lol* especially Cartman

Also I did like the Habs GDT a lot

 

may the Photoshop-Might be with you all :-)

#2531479 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by krsmith17 on 11 July 2014 - 07:38 AM

I'm a huge fan of Dan Cleary, he is a heart and soul guy, he will go through hell for his teammates and he is a great locker room guy. He works his ass off on and off the ice, and he is a great mentor to the kids. However, I believe his time has come and he should hang 'em up. I'm not a fan of this signing, but not for the same reasons as a lot of people on here. I don't think it's the end of the world, and I'm not about to burn down the Joe or Holland's home...

 

Before this signing I was fully expecting Jurco to start the season down in Grand Rapids, and I'm completely okay with that. I think him getting top line minutes, and being the go-to-guy down in Grand Rapids will be great for his development. I'd much rather a 21 year old kid get top minutes down in the AHL then have him get limited third line minutes in the NHL, but that's just me. The biggest problem I have with this signing is the potential of losing a kid that is out of options that I really, really like (Mitch Callahan) because there isn't room for him on the 23 man roster. I will be very disappointed if Callahan is placed on waivers and gets claimed because of this signing...

i give up.
 
not following the team this season.

At least one good thing came of this...

I really hope Cleary just goes on ltir all year again. But I know he will be in the top 6 for a while, I didn't want to believe it was possible. I guess I just like to give #fireholland the benefit of the doubt too much.... Well we're done until Alfie is ready to sign

Edit : auto crocodile sucks today

As a moderator here, I'm just glad the Wings didn't announce the re-signing of Quincey and Cleary on the same day.

Who else burst out laughing when they heard? :lol:

 

All Ken Holland has done this offseason is sign players for Grand Rapids...at least that's what we hope he's doing...




#2530893 Kane & Toews Sign Identical 8-year, $10.5M AAV Extensions

We don't have superstars, though. I mean, aside from Datsyuk.


Zetterbergs beard alone is a superstar which in turn makes him a superstar

Guys,

 

I am as pissed off as most Red Wings fans today out of our lack of ability to sign (any) big name free agents, and even more pissed off that our only substantial move was re-signing Kyle Quincey to a contract that pays him as much money as Jonathan Ericsson, more money than Johan Franzen and only 0.5 Million less than Nick Kronwall makes (still a top 10 defenceman in the league).

 

But as much as we can complain about Quincey, and predict that next season will be a complete disaster - I am seeing more and more tank for McDavid posts - I ask myself when did Matt Niskanen become worthy of a 7 year contract? Isn't Dan Boyle 37 years old coming off a 36 point season on a great team where he was a -8? Why did the world end when we didn't sign these two? Lets just try to use some perspective before we completely turn our backs...

 

Last season, in a 16 team conference - we finished 1 point behind 6th place PHI and 3 points behind 5th place NYR (who eventually played in the Stanley Cup Final) while having an historically bad (by our standards) record of 5-9 in the shootout. More importantly, we also had our top 3 forwards (when measured by salary) D, Z and Weiss miss 37, 37, and 56 games respectively. I hate to make excuses, but of the 6 teams in our conference that had more points than us last year, not a single one of them could relate to our injury situation (in terms of man games lost to star players). For ex. the top 6 scorers on the Boston Bruins all played in atleast 78 games, and 5 of them played in 80 or more - please don't tell me this would not have helped us or improved our position in the standings.

 

If we look ahead to next season - what do we have to be optimistic about? Well, we haven't really gotten worse since last year... No we haven't signed any big names either, but we still haven't lost anyone yet. (Alfie remains to be seen). Can you say the same about...

 

#1 BOSTON - Subtractions: Thornton, Iginla, Meszaros, Moore. Additions: None.

#2 PITTSBURGH - Subtractions: Jokinen, Vitale, Orpik, Glass, Engelland, Niskanen, Conner. Additions: Comeau, Ehrhoff.

#3 TAMPA BAY - Subtractions: Lindback, Aulie, Desjardins. Additions: Nabokov, Boyle, Blunden, Stralman.

#4 MONTREAL - Subtractions: Briere, Gorges, Vanek, Gionta, Blunden, Dubnyk. Additions: Parenteau, Gilbert, Malholtra.

#5 NEW YORK - Subtractions: Pouliot, Stralman, Richards, Boyle, Bickel. Additions: Hunwick, Glass, Kostka, D. Boyle.

#6 PHILADELPHIA - Subtractions: None. Additions: Jones.

 

The point here is that outside of Tampa Bay, the 5/6 teams that had more points than we did last season have not improved either - and to take it a step further, I certainly feel that Boston, Pittsburgh, Montreal, and the NYR have all regressed. In terms of teams within striking distance who have also improved, NJ and WSH certainly stand alone.

 

When you consider the possibility of a healthy team, the emergence and continued development of our younger players, the cap room and prospect pool we have to acquire pieces (which Holland MUST use at this point) and the lack of improved teams conference wide + number of teams in our division who have taken a step back (BOS, MTL, TOR, OTT,) I don't think the sky is falling as fast as it seems.

I smell a Commie plot!  This has got to be Soviet payback for stealing Fedorov in '89.  Putin's replaced the real Ken Holland with a look alike, cloned in a jungle laboratory a la "Boys From Brazil". 

Commie plot you say?

Although you are right and Weber is the better defenseman, they don't give the award to the leagues best defenseman but the leagues best scoring defenseman. If they gave it to the truly best defenseman each year then Lidstrom would have won the award like 20 times.


Well he did win it 7 times which is almost impossible. He was widely regarded as one of the best dmen to ever play the game, has 4 Stanley cup rings, I don't think he cares if he had a couple extra meaningless trophies to put on his shelf, it's probably already collapsing under all that weight anyway

stupid that Roy won ... hope Babcock comes back next year with a vengeance.  

I can't argue with the fact that Roy won, considering where the Avs were this year compared to last year, but the Jack Adams has really become "the best coach not named Babcock award".  It still amazes me that he has never won this trophy.
