#2429046 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by dirtydangles on 09 July 2013 - 02:27 PM

 

 

In our actual world this:

 

   Abdelkader        Datsyuk         Franzen

   Zetterberg         Weiss           Alfredsson

   Nyquist              Helm             Tatar

   Miller            Andersson     Bertuzzi  -Eaves-Tootoo-Sammy-Emmerton  

 

    Edit*I forgot Miller and Emmerton haha (oh well, same anyway)

Not to nitpick but with the correct LW/RW assignments it would be something like this.

 

I would prefer this:

 

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Alfredsson

Nyquist - Weiss - Franzen

Tatar - Helm - Abby

Miller - Andersson - Bert/Eaves/Tootoo

 

If Franzen works hard during the regular season I would be very comfortable with that lineup. Each line has a shooter and a setup man. I think having one player on each line that is huge for the sake of being huge is a waste of time - you need to give the best players the top minutes and get them out there as much as possible together. Also, chemistry is chemistry so if something that looks weird on paper works then go for it.

Just wanted to see Shanny and Cheli in there. I am very pleased.




#2428737 Question about Buying out Samuelsson

Posted by dirtydangles on 08 July 2013 - 09:05 AM

See sig ....

 

 

This guy is a joke, who cares about saving cap hit. Just get him off of the roster by any means necessary. 

Can you imagine trading him for an exchanged 7th round pick?

 

Sammy

7th round pick

 

for

 

7th round pick

 

Literally selling the guy for a bag of pucks to whoever wants him.




#2427630 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 July 2013 - 06:00 PM

I suggest you don't check on us here. He's gone. We let a young skilled natural goal scorer get away while we courted a buch of old guys. How foolish. Time will tell and I am quite sure it will haunt us. 

Brunner turned US down. He got 2 and 3 year offers. I'm sure they were fair. Kenny went out and got replacements. IF we get Cleary or Morrow and not Brunner THEN we can be angry at Kenny. 




#2427624 Wings interested in Morrow

Someone needs to turn the "OFF" switch on Ken Holland. He is short circuiting and trying to sign every player left.




#2427584 The CapGeek Thread

With 14 F on the roster, and 2 (Nyquist, Andersson) RFAs to sign, i think Emmerton and Tootoo will be traded.

It was already mentioned, that our C´s will be Dats, Weiss, Helm and Andersson. Byebye Emmerton!

Following the removal of Emmerton we see "The Axe" disappear off this board and appear on his next team's board.  :lol:




#2427569 who's on their way out of Detroit

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 July 2013 - 05:21 PM

 

Or you know he might just not waive it out of spite to stick it to Kenny.  

we can survive the year with his salary on the books - he can have fun in toledo.


Its a wonder the Flyers could buyout Bryz - I mean the guy is mentally insane - thats a lot worse than Sammy's booboo. 




#2427567 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 July 2013 - 05:18 PM

Kenny offered him 2 and 3 year contracts before noon today

THIS. Stop ripping on holland when you don't know the facts. Brunner decided to test the market so holland went out and protected the team. Its okay to rip on holland if you don't respect that but not because he didn't try.




#2427563 Dan Cleary Watch

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 July 2013 - 05:17 PM

Cleary is batman. We all hate him - he is old and can't do s*** anymore thanks to his body taking a grind - but he still suits up and takes the beating nonetheless. 




#2427000 Wings sign Stephen Weiss, 5-years, $24.5m

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 July 2013 - 01:23 PM

Anything over 5 would have scared me a bit. Holland pulled this one off nicely. Lets just see how he handles the extra forwards we have before we go praising him full out.




#2426971 Wings sign Stephen Weiss, 5-years, $24.5m

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 July 2013 - 01:20 PM

Sweet. 4.9 is fair. He is a better C than Fil. Aflie is better than Cleary. 




#2426951 Stephen Weiss on his way?

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 July 2013 - 01:17 PM

5 years 4.9mill




#2426424 Wings in on Alfredsson

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 July 2013 - 10:17 AM

People are too quick to support this deal. Consider which of your beloved current Wings this bumps out of the starting roster. Babs can't dress more than 12 forwards. 




#2426417 Wings in on Alfredsson

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 July 2013 - 10:15 AM

 

Brunner played one shortened season in the NHL and had a hard time being consistent at that.

Didn't Brunstrum have a pretty good first year in the NHL?

I can go down the list of one year guys that have played in the NHL. 

 

Tatar, Nyquist, and the other forwards "Rotting" in GR are not ready to assume top line minutes, Alfie fills that role for one season while the young guys have another chance to acclimate to the NHL.

FALSE. Tatar and Nyquist ARE ready to assume top 6 minutes. Nyquist already shows that ability and Tatar is an AHL playoff MVP. That is "earning it" on any other team. They can't prove it if they never get a shot. We haven't recently had young star talent because by the time they get a chance to establish themselves they are on the wrong side of 25. 




#2426404 Wings in on Alfredsson

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 July 2013 - 10:08 AM

 

And if he doesn't get hurt, it is a win for Detroit. Exactly how does Alfie hurt the team if he went on injured reserve? Any signing has a risk. This is a short term fix that will prevent the team from losing the kids down the road.

He prevents signings this year and leaves a kid to ride pine or stay in GR until he gets injured.
