#2339902 Wings Looking For Defenseman

Posted by dirtydangles on 13 January 2013 - 09:18 PM

Bogosian would be a nice piece as he is a RH dman with great size, mobility, and youth. I think more realistically we should target a guy like gormley who is probably nhl ready but is on a team with a crowded blueline. I don't think we have the depth to trade for a current top tier dman, but we could try for a potential top tier guy in gormley. maybe even rundblad but people seem to dislike him.

#2339093 Next Year UFA Wish List

The rest of the oddities in your post aside, in what universe does Alex Edler garner only $3.25m? That will never happen.


#2339087 Next Year UFA Wish List

Posted by dirtydangles on 10 January 2013 - 03:09 PM

Okay. So without being able to input different salaries for players getting raises next year due to capgeek only doing the current year, here is what I came up with. The key is to trim the fat (older players making more than they are worth. We need some rookie contracts and some star contracts mixed in. Apply raises for guys using the 9mill left over:


My Custom Lineup
Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Corey Perry ($5.325m) 
Gustav Nyquist ($0.875m) / Calle Jarnkrok ($0.900m) / Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) 
Tomas Tatar ($0.840m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Damien Brunner ($1.350m) 
Drew Miller ($0.838m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.800m) / Jordin Tootoo ($1.900m) 
Jan Mursak ($0.550m) / 
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Alexander Edler ($3.250m) 
Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m) / Brendan Smith ($0.875m) 
Kyle Quincey ($3.775m) / Ian White ($2.875m) 
Jakub Kindl ($0.883m) / 
Jimmy Howard ($2.250m) 
Jonas Gustavsson ($1.500m) 
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,000,000; CAP PAYROLL: $55,694,167; BONUSES: $957,500
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $9,263,333


Subtractions: Cleary, Bert, Eaves (IR), Sammy, Franzen, Emmerton, Coliacovo. All either through trade, contract expiration, or amnesty buyout. 

#2338385 Cup Contender Formula

Posted by dirtydangles on 07 January 2013 - 10:17 PM

I think we all agree we are a few pieces short right now. Pretend you are Kenny Holland and put your midseason trades/deadline deals together to get the Wings into serious contention.

I would look to bring in Yandle from the Coyotes as priority number 1. It's gonna cost us Smith and Filppula, but I make the move to solidify the D. Next I look to add goal scoring. I deal Frk, Bertuzzi, and a 1st rounder to Anaheim for Selanne.





Are you high?! Smith and Fil for a dman that can't play top 10 D? I'd want a better dman than yandle for that package. Then you deal essentially 2 firsts and bert for one year of selanne? thats ridiculous. 


I agree we need a dman. But trading our best d prospect isn't the answer to fixing our d long term. If we could get another top 4 dman and let almquist, ouellet, sproul develop we will be in a good position 3-4 years from now. We will be bringing in guys like Tatar, Jarnkrok, and Pulkkinen in the next season or two. Consider moving some aging forwards out of the lineup in trades etc. - likely for more picks to refill the cupboard after. 


The way to win a cup is to have some stars in their prime and a bunch of talented youngsters on rookie contracts to squeeze under the cap. THAT is how its done in today's NHL.

#2336944 NHL submits offer to NHLPA - **Suspension Warning Post #70 & #273*

Posted by dirtydangles on 28 December 2012 - 03:13 PM

I like this offer. The league budged a little. Now its time for the players to do the same here. If there is a counter offer it better have only a few small concession requests. Ask maybe for 8 year re-sign contract limit rather than 7 and 11% variance. Just try to squeeze a little more out of the same proposal. If the players try to counter with something different the season will be lost. The way negotiations have gone, each time there are counter offers the nhl has disappeared for a couple weeks.

So just to clarify, Israel and Hamas can agree on a ceasefire, but the NHL and NHLPA can't figure out how to share $3 billion?

#2334127 Sheahan arrested for "superdrunk" driving

Posted by dirtydangles on 15 November 2012 - 07:48 PM

No "we" weren't. Speak for yourself. Drinking and driving is bad, But people f*** up, learn their lesson, and move on all the time. Hopefully this kid will too. If not, then he actually has a problem, rather than just being a dumbass kid (which is what I'll assume he, and Kane, are until they grow up or do something really bad).

Wow, people getting pissy on these boards lately. I'm gonna say this: driving drunk isn't simply a lesson you learn and move on. You shouldn't have to learn a lesson by putting people in danger. I never learned not to drink and drive through screwing up and doing it. They preach this stuff to kids from an elementary school age and if you still do it you are dumb as f*** and it shows you have little foresight for the safety of others. This makes it seem as though the expense and inconvenience of calling a cab was not worth the risk of people's lives he put in danger. If all "dumbass kids" did this we would be in huge trouble. Not to mention he then provided false information to the authorities...

i dont see why its 100% up to the NHLPA to come up with the next proposal. the nhl made it clear that all past offers were off the table so the ball isn't in anyones court really.

#2330006 Jimmy D Speaks out on Lockout, fined $250k

Posted by dirtydangles on 25 September 2012 - 11:41 AM

its funny how in the nfl you can freely rip on replacement refs in the media all you want if you are a player or coach or whatever, but if you question the integrity of the nhl or reffing in any way you get a massive fine in the nhl...

#2328577 Report: Wings close to signing Carlo Colaiacovo

f*** this, i want kindl to play regularly. the guy needs time. now he will just ride pine.

#2326991 New Commissioner?

Posted by dirtydangles on 27 August 2012 - 01:09 PM

I thought that was serious at first. That's a bad thing that i'm not surprised that Gary Bettman wouldn't know what offsides are... The kind of guy that the entire world makes fun of...is that really the guy that the owners want to keep hanging on to as the head of the NHL?

Exactly my thought. In fact I bet he doesn't know a large number of the nuances in hockey, like he wouldn't know how to suit up properly to play. When he gets booed that much at every event (draft, cup presentations, etc.) its pretty clear he isn't a likeable face for the nhl. So what if the nhl grew with him in charge? its preposterous to think that it couldn't grow under someone likeable as well.

#2326577 Divers Beware!

Posted by dirtydangles on 23 August 2012 - 01:04 PM

Funny that Bieksa was so impassioned about it...the Nucks get away with more than anyone including the Pens. Both Sedin sistes, Kesler, Burrows, LAPIERRE, even Burrows. It would be pretty funny to see you own face on the diving board every time you enter your own arena.

HAHAHAHA i like the word play there. They should just throw a mini one next to the board for jokes.
