#2194970 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 02 July 2011 - 01:30 AM

Everyone keeps saying this like it's a defense of the signing. If he could make more elsewhere, LET HIM GO MAKE MORE ELSEWHERE! I see the point of the going rate for defensemen, but anyone who thinks theres even a tiny chance Big E fills Rafalski's shoes (successfully) in the Top 2 is delirious. I know Holland said he's still looking, but that "we could always just rely on Ericsson for our Top 2 replacement" quote sounds an awful lot like "this is what we'll be doing since there's nobody out there."


STOP SAYING THAT!

I don't believe I heard Holland or anyone say that at all.


#2194778 PHI signs Andreas Lilja

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 01 July 2011 - 08:31 PM

I still can't see Philly making it that far in the playoffs. Even with Jagr and Lils and all the other moves they are making. They are looking for the right direction but I don't think they've found it yet.


They need Hudler, and we have just the Hudler they're looking for.


#2194638 Wiz is a dick.

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 01 July 2011 - 05:43 PM

I'm pretty shocked at how many people thought Wiz would sign here.

So he wants to beat us because of something that happened almost 30 years ago to his uncle under different management?


#2194621 Wiz is a dick.

He's probably right if the cap continues to increase. Besides, did he not hear what Ericsson got?


#2194552 Wings re-sign Eaves to 3-year, $3.6m contract

Great great signing! Welcome back Patty!

Good signing.


#2192914 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Ericsson is such an interesting player. He gets alot of hate on here, yet Babcock logs him a ton of minutes and Holland signs him to $3.25 a year for 3 years. I'm glad he's back, although I don't agree with the price, but Babcock and Holland know more than I do.


#2192160 Ehrhoff's rights traded to NYI, then traded to Buffalo

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 29 June 2011 - 08:43 PM

More Eklund Speculation:

Eklund Hockey Buzz Eklund
OK...rare I go out on a limb like this...but I was told Ehrhoff is not in the Red Wings plans. At all.


hahaha


#2192133 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 29 June 2011 - 08:24 PM

My mind is full of f*** over this. He's close to signing, he's not close to signing, he disappears, Shero demands an answer, Pitt news is waiting at the airport for his arrival, he rejected Pitt's offer, he's coming to Detroit, he signed with Pitt.

WHAT THE f*** IS GOING ON!


#2189350 2011 NHL Draft: Round 1 Discussion

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 24 June 2011 - 10:33 PM

if you read the post before you just hit neg, I said disappointed THUS FAR... He says he needs to replace Rafalski, yet when a great player is available, he balks. Holland could've offered more than the Sharks did for Burns but for some reason he won't budge on his "core." That is why most teams get better every year and the Wings don't. I am ready for July 1st, but THUS FAR, Holland spewed a bunch of crap about making deals on draft day only to trade down so he can draft Haken Pupen and Bojrn Swappin Nutt in the second round... I am THUS FAR disappointed, he stood in the batters box today and watched the ball go by...strike one. Strike three and I will go back to hating him and once again knowing that he is NOT the best GM in the NHL. Today, Brian Burke, BRAINf****** BURKE FOR f***'S SAKE slapped Holland around like a *****...


So you're disappointed in him thus far because he's not doing what YOU want him to do? You don't even know what goes on behind the scenes.

What a bunch of pampered babies in this thread. :rolleyes:

I like how Holland has been voted the best GM of the last decade (and more), but he can do no right by alot on here.

Good move, nothing looking good? Move back.

In Holland I trust.


Exactly what Bill Polian and Bill Belichick do every year. Can't complain with that method at all.
