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

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 30 June 2011 - 09:33 PM

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

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.


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

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.


#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.

#2177357 Brad McCrimmon will not return for 2011/2012

Holland is apparently on Espn961 now at 3pm ET talking about the Wings offseason plans.

I can't access it cos I'm not in the US though, boo, hiss.

But if anyone wants a listen...


-Touched on our playoffs
-Touched on Lidstrom's decision, hope he can make a decision before the draft.
-Touched on Mursak and what he could bring to our team
-Mentioned the first week or so of free agency is where the prime players get the prime dollars, and the other good players that last till around august that didn't get the contract they thought they'd get could be looked at
-Will be looking to improve the team a little bit, so he'll see what's out there through trades and free agency.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that Kenny also said that he sat and talked with every player to get feedback on what they think can help improve this team.

#2167052 Sony PSN hacked a 2nd time

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 05 May 2011 - 06:00 PM


Spafford states that security experts monitoring open internet forums had found out that Sony was running outdated versions of the Apache web server, with no patches applied. To make matters worse, Sony did not have a firewall installed. Topping it all off, these security experts reported these flaws months before the current breaches on security forums monitored by Sony employees. Wow.

"If Dr Spafford's assessment is accurate, it's inexcusable that Sony not only ran obsolete software on servers containing confidential data, but also that the company continued to do so after this information was publicly disclosed," said Jeff Fox, Consumer Reports Technology Editor.

Let's be clear here: the folks who stole the data are criminals and need to be apprehended. However, if Spafford's story is true, and you'd think that you wouldn't lie during a congressional hearing, you can easily argue that Sony are criminals as well.....This is going to cost them dearly in law suits and damages - and rightfully so.

For any PS3 owners out there, I'd suggest trading everything in and get a 360 instead. Also change your credit/debit card just in case, since the hackers have, if my sources are correct, 77 million accounts of peoples information from the first hack, and over 25 million from the second hack.

I laugh everytime I see this. Not only did they make him look like a pig, but they painted him in mid-oink.
