#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.

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.

so you guys prefer Clarkson for 7 years at 6 million per than Alfredsson?

No I prefer letting Nyquist and Tatar and our other 50 signed forwards have a chance.

What is up with all the crying? It will be a one year deal that won't handcuff the team going forward. If we had Alfie's production in this past playoff run we probably beat Chicago. If anything it would give the Wings someone to win it for, assuming the right pieces come together 

12 games into the season Alfie will be out with a season/career ending injury for us - this is how these things go. See Modano and Sammy. We just hand out retirement cheques here.

Just threw up in my mouth.

My god, how does Holland still have defenders?

I'd like to hear what they have to say right about now. I think everyone is pissed.

Please god no. Like seriously. The wings haven't made any significant UFA additions I have liked since Hossa. Can we stop with the old timers please?! I understand loyalty to our own UFAs to a point but taking a spot away from our youngsters for someone else's old guys is grinding my gears.


Too many vets come here as a last stop for retirement because the atmosphere is relaxing for them without a bunch of young guys amped up all the time. This isn't a retirement home - its the motherf***ing Detroit Red Wings. 




#2426150 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by dirtydangles on 04 July 2013 - 08:13 PM

I went to the movies and came out hoping I would see that Brunner had been signed. :(

This sucks.

Were you watching Great Expectations?




#2426109 Grabovski Bought Out

Posted by dirtydangles on 04 July 2013 - 07:44 PM

 

Let's do it then ... make a Russian pairing of Dats and Grabo

I think Grabs is from Belarus...

Opens up LGW to see holland hasnt re-signed brunner, thinking of re-signing cleary, and isnt looking at a centre but rather alfredsson:

Holland must be reading these forums and taking the insults personally and screwing us over.

Dear god please no. We need to let our kids develop. They have no value without nhl experience and we will have nothing of value in trades other than 35+ aging players.


#2425873 Trade/Buyout thread

Posted by dirtydangles on 04 July 2013 - 01:46 PM

Showing Holland how it's done? Give me a break. Blockbuster trade

LOL im glad i got everyone wound up with that post. But seriously, holland couldnt even get assets for fil this year and has made some pretty head scratching moves the last offseason. Makes me wonder.

Huge trade in the works. Boston and Dallas close on a deal sending Tyler Seguin to Stars for Loui Eriksson. Other parts involved as well.

#2425747 Players of Interest

Posted by dirtydangles on 04 July 2013 - 08:54 AM

Yes to Weiss under 5mill per season. We can use a player with his quality - he can play a skilled or physical game depending on the situation and WINS faceoffs more often than not. Its a shame he isn't above 6 feet but he plays like it.

 

We don't need more "meh" wingers - we need a sure thing. 




#2425544 Buffalo fielding calls for Vanek

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 July 2013 - 04:42 PM

I'd take Vanek - he is a pure scorer. We can buyout Franzen next offseason.
