You failed once again,

So please leave us alone now,

And never come back


#2195737 Red Wings trying to move Jiri Hudler

How are you holding up?

Must be real tough to think it might actually happen.

#2195297 Wings sign D Ian White to 2-year, $5.75m contract

There's Rafalski's replacement. <_<

#2194844 Simon Gagné

Posted by Nevermind on 01 July 2011 - 09:54 PM

Gagne has scored 34 goals over the past two seasons combined. His days of prolific goal-scoring are over.

He's only 31. What's the huge downside to a one-year deal when we have a ton of cap space this year? Even when he's in the lineup, he's been fighting injuries the past few seasons. We can afford to take the chance that he's healthier now. The latest concussion scares me, but I've heard it's nowhere near as severe as the last one. With good health, there's no doubt he's at least a 20-25 goal scorer.

I think he'll get nowhere near what you're saying, because he's awfully injury-prone, has a history of awful concussions, and doesn't score all that much anymore.

If he gets nowhere near that much on the open market, then why not sign him? Lower salary means low risk/high reward.

I've only ever seen you deride other people's 'out there' suggestions. Why don't you play GM for us once?

#2194790 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

I'm better at moving the puck than Ericsson too.

To Whom Much Is Given… Much Is Expected!!!!

To Whom Too Much Is Given… Much Is Wasted!!!!

I think I almost prefer this...


#2192918 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

"Holland sucks! Fire him!"

"We're so screwed! What is Holland doing?"

"This team is going to suck next year!"

"Holland is a terrible GM!"

If you haven't seen this sort of asinine sentiment in superlative quantity in this thread, then you're literally blind.

Yeah, I agree that it is REALLY overreacting to want to fire Holland after one bad move. He's been the best GM for a while now--especially since he doesn't do stupid things.

However, this one move was extremely stupid. Call a spade a spade and admit this was a stupid, stupid signing. Constantly praising Holland and belittling those criticizing him doesn't make you more of a fan. People have the right to be upset with something like this. They're upset because they care. Obviously, as a result, they're going to make those over-dramatic statements you incessantly gripe about.

I'm truly worried that this signing could set an extremely bad precedent.

How much are Kronwall and Stuart going to want? Surely, they'll want at minimum $5-5.5M now. It's tough to justify them taking much less whenf****** Ericsson is making $3.25M.

Should have it in Florida, Lightning vs Panthers!

Beach Classic :lol:

#2186147 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

Posted by Nevermind on 16 June 2011 - 11:41 AM

If we trade Hudler away, I wouldn't be opposed to signing Jagr for less than $2M or so.

Hell, if we trade Hudler away, practically any signing looks good.

#2183205 Let's summarize...

Kindl and Smith on the 3rd pair is a nightmare actually.

We're not throwing an offer sheet to Weber. And we're not spending that kind of money on a forward (Richards).

And if it's a dream, why would you trade Filppula instead of Hudler?

#2181854 SCF: Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver Canucks

Burrows takes a bite off Bergeron's finger? :blink:

Being a French-speaker, I think he misunderstood what 'playing hungry' means.

#2181765 Colin Campbell Steps Down

Posted by Nevermind on 01 June 2011 - 02:56 PM

I think Shanny will do a great job. :thumbup: He seems level-headed and honest.

It is kind of funny though that the NHL's head disciplinarian has over 2500 PIMS. :lol:

A committee would still be a better idea than just a single person in charge though. I don't think Shanahan would want all the decision-making responsibility.

#2181469 The Unthinkable

Posted by Nevermind on 31 May 2011 - 09:16 PM

Lidstrom re-signs with Detroit or retires. End of story.

Besides, I wouldn't really consider TB more of a contender than the Wings next season.

#2179590 Ken Holland: Open to trade to replace Rafalski

Posted by Nevermind on 25 May 2011 - 01:50 PM

Instead of Bogosian...

What would you guys think of Tobias Enstrom? An established, 50+ point scoring, puck-moving defenseman.

Atlanta's rebuilding, so maybe there's a deal to be had there.
