#2346063 Brunner is a start, but.....

Posted by ogreslayer on 25 January 2013 - 10:40 AM

Teemu Pulkkinen is listed at 5'11", right handed RW, ridiculous shot, coming to North America next season.


Tomas Jurco is in Grand Rapids now, 6'2" RW. He's having a slow start, but he could end up being a sniper at the NHL level.


Martin Frk is playing over in Czech Republic, listed at 6'. likes to shoot. has a cannon.


we actually have a pretty deep prospect pool up front. these are just a few we haven't seen in the winged wheel yet that we might in the next couple of years.


Frk's in the Q playing for the Halifax Moosehead actually.  47 points (16g, 31a) and a +15 & 56 pim in 33 games.

#2346060 PK Subban

Posted by ogreslayer on 25 January 2013 - 10:13 AM

Not sure if it's already been covered, but how can they be $2.5-3M apart? What is Montreal offering and/or how much does PK think he's worth?


Given the minutes he plays, points he puts up, plays in all situations, decently physical, decent shot blocker...got to think Montreal is offering at least $3.5-4M. Does he think he's worth $6-7M? Or are the Habs just really low-balling?


Assuming he's not actually insane in his demands, I'd like to get him. But I'd assume Montreal would want an NHL defenseman in return, and we don't have any to spare. Doubt they'd take Lashoff.

From everything I've seen, the Habs offered a 2 year deal in the $2.5-2.75m a year range.  So basically, he's asking for twice what the Habs offered & also wants the deal to be 5 or 6 years instead of 2.

An offer sheet for Subban would have to be absolutely ridiculous for Bergevin NOT to match it.

Very true.  I wouldn't mind Kenny floating out a 7 year $6-7m contract just to force the Habs to match & screw up their cap situation like Holmgren did with Weber/Nashville.

#2345514 Ian White Out 2-3 Weeks

Posted by ogreslayer on 23 January 2013 - 03:18 PM

Somewhere in the Chicago suburbs Brett Lebda is holding a red wings voodoo doll and waiting for his phone to ring.

Can we all at least agree that the moment Lebda signs with the Wings is the moment that the 2013 season is officially over?

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.

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.

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.
