#2504529 Weiss - who would take him next season and does he have a full NTC

Posted by ogreslayer on 02 April 2014 - 10:42 AM

As Richdg said we do have 1 more buyout we can use this summer.  Maybe its Weiss?  Also a lot of the reason Howard is struggling is the defense is terrible.  I think if the wings can get a couple solid d guys in the offseason then we may see a better Howie next season.


And that 1 buy out, their 2nd compliance buy out, cannot be used on Weiss as he was signed after the new CBA went in effect.  Tootoo will get the last compliance buy out imo.  If the Wings move on Weiss, it will have to be a regular buy out i.e. some of his cap hit will remain after.

Bernier did save a goal there.  Tatar would have sent his water bottle to the press box.

Might be good for Tatar that he didn't.  Clarkson would want a word with him then.

And then they dragged him into the quiet room....


More like signed him to 7 years at a cap hit of $5.25m a year.  In addition to tipping pucks off his crotch in front of the goalie, he'll also take over as their #1 ambassador of water bottle etiquette.

There needs to be a GIF of this.

So with Emmerton down to GR that means Callahan-Helm-Bertuzzi. Interesting. 


He was skating on a line with Helm & Andersson this morning.  Bert will probably replace Emmerton on the line with Miller & Glendening, but that's just my guess.

:furious:  Holland..


And Legwand has 1 more goal, 3 more assists, & 2 more Malkin balls since coming over to Detroit.

Good news on Helm. Hopefully he has a new uniform made of kevlar bubble wrap so he can stick around for awhile.

Too bad there was no footage of Oprik taking out Franzen's knee in preseason a few years back.



Yeah, too bad...


#2498678 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by ogreslayer on 21 March 2014 - 01:41 PM

When Holland signs Nyquist to his new deserved contract, I am getting a Nyquist jersey. Him and Tatar are so exciting to watch. The Wings are lucky to have him. Basically playing the role of Z over the past month carrying the team.


Why wait?  I just pulled the trigger on a Nyquist Winter Classic jersey this morning.

If the shoe fits.  Sorry dude, I'm sure you love her and everything, but we've all got to make sacrifices in a season this trying.


Personally, I think the bigger foul on the original was getting jerseys with your own name on it.  

#2494952 Cap increase may be lower than projected

Posted by ogreslayer on 13 March 2014 - 09:06 AM

So the expected cap increase may be lower next season, not the cap itself.  Kinda misleading thread title, isn't it?

#2487780 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by ogreslayer on 28 February 2014 - 11:04 AM

Rumor was that Kenny & David Poile did talk about the price for Weber right before the Philly offer sheet but it was too high on an intra-division move.  I think it's time to revisit that conversation with all but the kids currently on the roster (Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco) & Mantha being off the table.  Screw this small move stuff.  With Z & Sammy now on LTIR for the rest of the season, there's room to make a big splash.

Posted by ogreslayer on 28 February 2014 - 10:32 AM

So anyone else think that Jurco has locked down his spot on the big club next season already?  Personally, I would rather see some of the prospects out of waiver eligibility next season be exposed (i.e. Callahan, Ferraro, Almquist) than have him start the season in GR.

#2485619 Red Wings should target Clarkson

Posted by ogreslayer on 20 February 2014 - 04:06 PM


He has missed some time and is trying to adjust to the most difficult market outthere with tons of pressure. I'd take him over Weiss every day at least he brings physicality  and intangibles that's something you can't teach.


But yes, so far he hasn't looked good same goes for Weiss and some other signings. We'll see when all is said and done.


And he of course would make sure that all the water bottles were taken care of properly.

This went from awesome to confusing. First of all, was nick even there? Secondly what beer were they actually drinking? Third and most importantly, where's Cleary?
