#2621538 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by McAwesome on 24 July 2015 - 08:41 PM

General Fanager retweeted

Red Wings re-sign Tomas Jurco to two-year deal worth $1.8 million. Story: http://bit.ly/1JE3Br7


Savage more reliable?  ;)

Looks like they weren't as far apart as some would have led us to believe. 


This makes me happy, Jurco has been my favorite of the kids so far. I just hope he gets utilized properly, if so the numbers will come and his confidence will return.

Took me forever to get some inspiration for this series, but here goes:

Please list your candidates to be the first Lightning player to ever be Kronwalled in the playoffs in their franchise history.

Callahan, for sure. I'd sure like to have him in the Winged Wheel, but man is he a pain to play against.


Runner up, Tyler Johnson, something about his face just makes me want to punch him.

Apparently a Tampa area blogger published an article bashing the city of Detroit and the lightning website and Twitter posted it.... So, this guy wrote a perfect comeback article.

Stay classy, Tampa Bay.


#2530773 Red Wings Target Mike Green

How do people not see how special this Jurco kid is going to be? He has a much higher ceiling than Tatar and I would possibly even consider trading Nyquist before Jurco. Kid is going to be unreal.

^This, as much as I love Tatar and Nyquist, in reality Jurco has a higher ceiling than either, plus he has size and enough aggressiveness to use it effectively. I really don't think any of the three should be considered as part of a deal for an expiring contract, and I think both sides know that. Like someone said, Andersson, Ferraro, and a conditional pick should get this deal done, Andersson is the odd man out in our logjam at center, Ferraro doesn't have much of a chance of cracking the 23 man roster and has a better than 50/50 chance of getting claimed off waivers for nothing, and a 3rd rounder that turns into a second rounder in 2016 if Green re-signs with us. With as many lopsided deals as we've been on the wrong end of lately, it would be nice to get a fair deal like this for a change.

Not gonna lie, I couldn't be happier with how this series has gone. Wouldn't be surprised if Seabrook gets the banhammer for a game or two, that hit looked way worse on the replay than I initially thought seeing it live.

Usually takes me a game or two into the series to gain inspiration for a new playoff opponent, but here goes:




Also, an old standby of mine:

The best comedian out there, imo.

It's Rob Ray doing the color on the Buffalo feed. Picture Brian Regan doing his science project routine (the yellow one in the middle is the sun), and you'll have the accent down pretty well.

"You too!"

That was a huge statement game for the kids, but no way we have a chance to pull it off in the end without Howard, he was huge when he needed to be.
