#2345396 Ian White Out 2-3 Weeks

Posted by ogreslayer on 23 January 2013 - 11:08 AM

This is unbelievable...
 
So far, I think we've seen that this Red Wings roster is the EPITOME of Murphy's Law...
Too bad it's not Larry Murphy's Law, which is that all hot dogs are $1 & washed down with a cold Miller Lite.

Wonder what 30-35 year old journeyman Kenny can bring in next to fill in on D. For a shortened 48 game season, it's already feeling like the season is going to be way too long.


#2344729 1/22 GDT : Stars 2 at Red Wings 1

Wings with the win 2-1 w/ 1 goal called back in honor of Homer's retirement.




#2342635 Brunner's nickname

Posted by ogreslayer on 20 January 2013 - 12:01 PM

I'm partial to Damien "We'll give you a nickname when you do something that proves you belong in the NHL" Brunner, or is that too long?  Call him WGYANWYDSTPYBITN for short?




#2342632 Giant Griffins bench-clearing brawl

Posted by ogreslayer on 20 January 2013 - 11:57 AM

Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean that really got out of hand fast! Brick killed a guy!

There were horses and a man on fire and I killed a guy with a trident.

Better to be involved in that kind of mass beat down than in the one that occurred in St. Louis tonight.




#2341219 Teams Must Comply with 23man Roster Limit by Tomorrow

No, both became waiver eligible last season.</p></blockquote>

Oh alright, thanks. How does that work though? I thought he was on a 2-way contract..? Or is it an age thing?

It all depends on the age the player was when they signed their entry level contract & the number of games they play in the NHL while they're waiver exempt.  2-way contracts don't impact waiver eligibility at all.  All 2-ways do is differentiate the dollars a player is paid while they're in the NHL vs. the lower salary they would get if sent to the AHL.




#2340658 Devils re-sign Travis Zajac - 8 year, 46 million (5.75 per)

It's good to see that owners are going to rein it in on the whole overspending thing after losing half the season to the lockout.


#2339947 What the Wings are doing for the fans

Posted by ogreslayer on 14 January 2013 - 08:14 AM

I want to see them pull off a hot dog eating contest for the fans.  If you can beat Larry Murphy, you get a free 9 game ticket package for 2.  




#2339945 Wings Looking For Defenseman

Posted by ogreslayer on 14 January 2013 - 07:39 AM

Well - I do agree with you that's he isn't cheap (salary that is), nor will he come to Detroit cheap (although ya never know what the Flames will take in return)  - however where else can Holland find a good puck moving Dman capable of playing top pairing minutes?

 

Unfortunately if Holland is gonna look for a legit #1/#2 Dman - he's gonna have to pay in one way, or another.

Crossing my fingers that Kenny can somehow pull off a Iginla/J-Bo trade at the deadline if indications are that Jerome won't re-sign in Calgary.  




#2338452 Now What Can the NHL Do For You, the Fans

As a counterpoint... What the NHL will do for fans. Jack & squat.


#2338242 Tomas Holmstrom Retires

Posted by ogreslayer on 07 January 2013 - 02:51 PM


To honour him could we have 96 painted in the crease? Just to remind any visiting goalies that are getting cocky because he's not there any more.

Really it should be halfway in & halfway out.


#2338123 Tomas Holmstrom Retires

Posted by ogreslayer on 07 January 2013 - 09:34 AM


One of my very favorite Wings, I will miss you, Homer. The goalies in the league celebrate the departure of your large red butt. I will never forget you scoring from every possible angle in 2002, all while falling down or sitting on your afore-mentioned rosy derriere. Best of everything, friend. Enjoy retirement and playing pick up hockey with Nick in Sweden.

Thought I saw somewhere that Homer & the family were going to stay in the Detroit area once he's retired.  I'm hoping he takes over Murph's job between the benches on FSD broadcasts.




#2337466 Which players will get bought out?

Posted by ogreslayer on 03 January 2013 - 02:06 PM

Oh if only the irony of Minnesota having to buy out Suter or Parise would happen.

Arguing just to argue? It seems this thread as turned into the actual CBA talks then.

Of course he did. Where else would he keep Smith's ID?

Maybe in one of these?
