I agree, been thinking this for a long time now. Zetterberg and Brunner are better off apart considering they're the two top shooters on the team and there aren't enough pucks to go around for both of them on the same line.
We won't catch the Blackhawks or Ducks, and the Kings are clearly better than us. How do you figure?
kings are not clearly better then us
Cant believe some d-bag on this site who clams to be a Wings fan wants the Wings to lose and miss the playoffs. Says its a good idea so the Wings can get a higher draft pick. (real insightful, but the draft loto doesnt guarantee anything) This person must think hes more intelligent then the entire Wings organization.
I for one enjoy the playoff atmosphere at the Joe and look forward catching a few games this year.
Lets get the win tonight!! GO WINGS GO!!!!!!!
lol all the haters should just go watch another team. I agree with you. Soak it all up well we still dats!!
All the naysayers that decided to fancy on up here and try to knock us back down, SUCK ON THIS:
These are my sentiments. Holland needed to go after Suter and Parise with an open checkbook. 9 mil per for both sound ridiculous? Well, we are almost paying 20 mil to a bunch of guys we get little return out of anyways.
Quincey = 3.7 mil
Bertuzzi = 1.75 mil
Sammy = 3 mil
Monster = 1.75 mil
Cleary = 2 mil
Tootoo = 1.8 mil
Colo = 2 mil
Huskins = .75 mil
White = 1.75 mil
Thats 18.5 mil.
Oh you screwed us, Axe. We are over the cap now.
This assumes we could play a sane Ken Holland from the Bertuzzi signing forward.
I trade Filppula, Kronwall, and Franzen for Cory Perry and sign Perry to 9 mil per.
What does that have to do with the third line?... If you want to talk about holland than make another hate thread about it and we can have healthy discussions while you get your panties in a bunch
You are correct it does not have to do with the third line, but either do some of your posts.
So I took off my redwings glasses and said that the Nucks, Hawks, Pens have a better top 6 then us and you replied with "pessimism is annoying".
What I said was not an attack at our GM. Please explain to me how by me saying that thoes teams have a better top six I am being a pessimsit and explain how my "panties are in a bunch" because you just pretty much acted like the common ****** bag who doesnt back up what they say and just calls people stupid
If Doan leaves his Yotes, it will be for a team that he thinks can win him a cup in the next two-three years. Do you honestly believe that from an outsiders point of view that Detroit looks that good compared to other teams that he could sign with?
But the wings are a lock to win the cup every year...........
13 years? Give me a break... The NHL has to do something with these ridiculous deals. It's obvious it's just circumventing the cap. Lots of teams have done it, sure. It's just ridiculous though. To think anyone is going to play out these 13 year deals is ridiculous.
As for Suter... congratulations picking yourself a new home where you will never see the Cup. Apparently thats what he wanted though, stay isolated, away from all the spotlight and attention, collect the big fat paycheck, and never live up to its potential. If we see Minnesotta paid him more in cash too, then its obvious Suter wasn't focused on winning, but more so on cash. He's got a far greater chance of winning here, or Pittsburgh, or hell, even Nashville than he does in Minny.
With a deal like that I'm glad he's not here. Our D is going to suck, no doubt, but 13 years, and what I'd assume is over $100 million... its just stupidity I think.
your like a little kid that didnt get his way.... grow up. The wings are not as high and mighty as you and half the people on here think they are. thoes two will have a fine 13 years in minny.
Come on now - I think this is grasping at straws. Chris Osgood was the absolute master of knocking the net off its mourings to get a stop in play and Kris Draper was notorious at cheating on face offs but by his own admission "hid it very well".
We lost the game and the series because they were the better team - end of story.
