#2685976 Dan Cleary Gets Training Camp Tryout

Posted by kliq on 16 September 2016 - 11:58 PM

I'd rather have cleary as a 14th forward at $950,000 than Helm taking a kids spot on the 3rd line at $3.8M. But whatever, cleary will get his money from last season and be sent to GR just like before.

It is hilariously asinine though. Holland really does need to be fired.

 

Only on Letsgowings.com would the ramifications to a PTO be a firing of the GM lol. I guess this thread didnt have have its Helm quota yet.

You're back?!? Yay!!! Our fire Magic worked!!

Yeah, it was a long process that involved cutting and burning some of my hair and beard while lying naked on a table.

 

Which was odd, considering Thoros of Myr was able to bring back Berric Dondarion by just speaking the words....(on an unrealated note, we really need a 'shoulder shrug' emoticon)

 

Anyway, My Watch Has Ended

Zetts-Nielson-Nyquist
Tatar-Larkin-Abby
Mantha-AA-Vanek
Sheahan-Glen-Helm

Lots of depth at forward


I enjoy these rebuilding years. For this first time since Steve Yzerman we're watching a 20 year old kid be the best player on the team. Mrazek, AA etc. Our best players are the youngest on the team

 

...and even more when you consider Jurco, Pulkinnen, Ott, and Miller.  A lot of flexibility.

 

I too like watching the Wings build on the fly.  Is Holland doing everything that I wish he were?  No. 

He continues to be over cautious and too measured in his approach, which to be honest, is getting a bit stale.

Will the team be worse if we overpay a bit for a defenseman?  Probably not.

So, while I understand the frustration that others have towards the upcoming season and see it as more of the same old same old...

I think it's wayyyy to early to be this doom and gloom.

Lots of depth at forward

DD-Green
Smith-Marchenko
Kronwall-E

Lots of questions on D. Can Green play efficiently enough at 20+ minutes a night? Can Kronwall bounce back and be a good top 4? Need another RH top 4 badly. Marchenko is likely over his head in the top 4. Adding a RH'd top 4 and ditching E really solidifies all three units

this is the for at time in a long time I'm not that excited for the new hockey season. I have zero confidence that the Wings are going to do.much more than sneak into
the playoffs and lose in 4 or 5. Holland's body of work the last several years has taken the team from contender to mediocre and he hasn't done anything to get them back to contender status. Only two non-rental trades, middle of the roster players signed to long term deals, and almost every free agent has blown up in his face.


Kind of crappy outlook as a fan. Only interested when they're contenders? Would you watch them be a lottery team like you wish they were?

Here's another question.  What National Anthem will play first if Team North America wins the tournament?  What if Team Europe wins the tournament?  Will they play "The Final Countdown" by Europe in lieu of an anthem?  

for team NA what better than Let the Children play-Santana

The most interesting man doesn't always shut up. But when he does, it's to avoid a LGW permaban.

Hopefully this is a similar situation we are seeing with Kronwall. Not 100%, so opting out of the tournament to be ready to go opening night for the Wings...

 

Regardless, if it wasn't already crystal clear to management and the coaching staff that Zetterberg's and Kronwall's minutes / roles need to be significantly reduced, hopefully this will prove that...

Saw this from the Red Wings facebook page, and thought I'd post it here. Newsworthy enough since we're in the offseason doldrums...
