#2428056 Wings Attempting to Re-sign Cleary

No god dammit, NO! 




#2328864 Wings sign Carlo Colaiacovo to 2 year deal, $2.5m cap hit

Posted by ShanahanMan on 15 September 2012 - 11:13 AM

Believe it or not points aren't all that plays into salary for defensemen.

Carlo is a decent puck moving defenseman, he's nothing more than an average to below average in terms of defense, Ericsson plays a ton more in shorthanded situations, and is much more physical. Different players demand different salaries depending on the role they play. One also had much more leverage on the team, Ericsson's not a world beater by any means, but he does provide something the wings don't have much of on the back end, toughness, and size. Which the Wing's lost quite a bit with Stuart.


Fair points, but I gotta disagree with you on Ericsson being more physical. While the guy does have the size advantage, he's also a pylon and rarely makes use of it. He is a decent puckmover though.

Haven't watched too much of Carlo so can't really comment on his defensive abilities but yeah, the general consensus seems to be he's a solid 5th/6thdefender when he's healthy. Also, he's got pretty good numbers.

Well then, if we're throwing around fantasies, I want 5 mintues alone with Kate Upton.


Let's be honest, you only need 2.





Heyooooooooooooooooooooo


#2310450 How much would you give up?

Posted by ogreslayer on 27 June 2012 - 02:33 PM

Doubt Holland would make a move like that, and doubt he will be traded. They will either find a way to sign Parise and keep Kovalchuk or Parise will sign elsewhere. The only way I would consider doing this trade if he infact is up for grabs is if we could commit highway robbery. Some ridiculous offer that we just couldn't say no too.

Highway robbery? Maybe something like the rights to Hudler, all the $1 hotdogs you can carry, & Karen Newman's home phone number? Get 'r done Kenny! :colgate:

I have a few things I would like to see carry over, but I agree with you here. I love the fact its not named after some fortune 500 company or some bulls***. I think naming an arena should be dedicated to someone or something that has meaning to the city or team or what not.

"Without further ado Mike Illitch and co. are happy to anounce the Detroit Red Wings will be now be playing in a new home; I present you AMWAY ARENA!!!"

TOTAL FAIL, I can see it now... :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown:



Maybe LCP......Little Caesars Place.

Or

PPP. Pizza Pizza Place

I do like the horn too! But they also need to stop all the personal goal scoring music AND the music that "means something" like the Billy Joel 1..2..3..4, I cannot stand it personally. Just blast the f'ing horn and play a song like maybe go back to EMF's Unbelievable or Gary Glitter's Rock N' Roll Part 2. I have always wished for Welcome to the Jungle when the starting lineups skate out on the ice too. Or someting by Ministry, like NWO or Just On Fix or Jesus Built My HotRod...That would get the NEW place rockin!

No on EMF because it's not 1990 and the song sucked back then too & no on Gary Glitter because it's not 1972 & personally, I think it would be a good thing to keep all association with kiddie porn out of the new arena. Parents, keep this guy away from the young 'uns:

I say keep the personalized goal songs for players but just update them a bit. I've always been disappointed they never busted out Tool's song 'Hooker with a Penis' as Hudler's goal song.

I would say....not much. I can list a few I DO NOT want to follow...


Karen Newman
Budd Lynch
DJ
Scoreboard
Sh!tty Seats (not enough room)
Amway

You can say that again.


#2284043 Justin Abdelkader

Posted by Gnredwing on 13 April 2012 - 01:05 AM

Does anyone else think Abdelkader should be out of the lineup, he is useless, all he does is get his ass kicked when he fights and doesn't do anything offensively. He makes me sick, why he is still in the lineup is beyond me!


#2283682 Nyquist in game 2

Posted by MibJab on 12 April 2012 - 02:56 PM

who cares? Nyquist couldn't compete in the Women's league. Lets solve our getting beat up on problem with another Hudler.


#2282852 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Posted by jollymania on 11 April 2012 - 09:45 PM

it wasn't that bad, hank was selling it, but the fact that it happened at the end of the game was bogus


#2273849 National Anthems in Ottawa

Posted by ogreslayer on 25 March 2012 - 09:17 AM

Well that's what happens when you bring in someone from RuPaul's Drag Race to sing the National Anthems before a game I guess.


#2266119 Brendan Smith watch thread

And Lidstrom apparently? They've been out of the lineup the exact same games.

We should get rid of both of them.


Lidstrom's steady, intelligent play is missed. Ericsson's boneheadedness is not.

The defense looks way better without Ericsson.
