#2618712 St. Louis announces retirement at age 40

Posted by amato on 02 July 2015 - 12:35 PM

"@frank_seravalli: Marty St. Louis has announced his retirement at the age of 40. The 2004 Hart Trophy winner had 52 points in 74 games last season. #TSN"

"@frank_seravalli: St. Louis interested in playing nxt season but wanted to be close to family in Connecticut. Few options. He's earned approx. $70M since '98."



From undrafted to an outstanding career, congrats Marty!


#2618655 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

I like the wait and see mentality here.. with the new coach and all, if a trade does happen, I don't expect it before camp anyway.. let Blashill see what he's working with first.


#2618274 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by amato on 01 July 2015 - 03:37 PM

25 probably? Or trade Ericsson and let him have 52 :P


#2618208 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by amato on 01 July 2015 - 03:16 PM

Hell yeah. I've liked green since he entered the league and the wings need scoring from the defense real bad. Love the signing.


#2618005 Phil Kessel Traded to Penguins

"@leahhextall: With Kessel gone now just one player on Toronto's roster makes more than Babcock!"


#2618002 Free agents this off season

"@TSNBobMcKenzie: O'Reilly signs with BUF. Two year deal at $700K per. One way deal. That's CAL O'Reilly, Ryan's older brother. Guess we know who's next."

Oh Bobby, so misleading :P


#2617977 Phil Kessel Traded to Penguins

Posted by amato on 01 July 2015 - 12:42 PM

Finally the full trade laid out in one convenient tweet :P

"@TSNBobMcKenzie: Kessel, Tyler Biggs, Tim Erixon and 2nd in 2016 for Kapanen, Harrington, Spaling, 1st and 3rd picks in 2016. TOR retains $1.25M/year."


#2617882 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Maybe if Babcock weren't the leafs coach.. I'm guessing Arizona


#2617814 Free agents this off season

If we were to sign ehrhoff for the first pair, I'd rather keep the second pair Dekeyser and Quincey.. They played well together last season.

Kronwall-Ehrhoff
Dekeyser-Quincey
Ericsson-Smith

Not an amazing defensive lineup but not terrible. But, I don't think Ehrhoff will be signed by Kenny.. although if I remember correctly, didn't we have interest in him before he signed with Pittsburgh? If he could stay healthy, he'd be a decent addition on a short deal.


#2617812 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

So pissed about this entire Weiss situation. Holland screwed up by signing him over Filppula (yeah yeah I know I still miss him), Babcock managed him like s*** two years in a row and Holland should have just bought him out when he had the chance to do it without penalty (admittedly I'm not sure if we could have bought him out without penalty).


We couldn't have. Players had to be signed before the new cba was signed to be eligible for the compliance buyouts.

And, krsmith, I thought they'd give him another season under a new coach to play well here too.. I'm guessing the new coach didn't want him as much as one of his kids from GR. Mayyybe we're planning on signing franson/green/whoever, but I think it's more blashill didn't have Weiss in his plans. I'm sure Kenny was trying to include him in a trade before buying him out but obviously no potential trade scenario panned out.. best of luck to Weiss, I wish he would've had a better time in Detroit.


#2617602 Brendan Smith re-signed 2 yrs $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by amato on 30 June 2015 - 04:46 PM

Good deal. I have a feeling blash will use him better than babs did.


#2617513 Dougie hamilton to calgary

Posted by amato on 30 June 2015 - 01:00 PM

Good deal for both sides. I'm glad he's not in Boston anymore.

Where did someone say they'd give $7+ mill? Most I see on here is five. Am I missing something?


#2617442 Mike Richard's Contract Terminated (Not Bought Out)

Posted by amato on 30 June 2015 - 07:38 AM

I would say he either hasn't been putting the work in physically off ice, or he got into Stoll's stash....or both ;)
