#2346202 1/25 GDT : Wild 3 at Red Wings 5

Suter?  This Suter?  I'd love for this to happen again, but don't make me wait until the end of the game.


#2344644 Red Wings sign D Kent Huskins to 1-year, $750k contract

Posted by rrasco on 22 January 2013 - 03:11 PM

He didn't refuse to sign with Detroit, his rights were traded to Columbus and he signed with them before free agency started.  Might want to be accurate the next time.


Accurate?  Yeah, you're spot on!  Let's just say he was never really interested, because well, he knew someone would overpay and that someone wasn't Kenny H.


Speaking of money, Canton's James Wisniewski signed a six-year deal with Columbus valued at $5.5 million a season. The Red Wings were interested, but not at that price or that term.


"For me, knowing Detroit's history they don't really pay the market value for a defenseman or any player,'' Wisniewski said on NHL Live. "So I didn't think that was going to be a fit for myself.

See post #70 where I tell you exactly what I would have done.  Or you could dig back through old threads where I repeatedly argued for signing Matt Carle AND Bryan Allen for less than we eventually DID OFFER for Suter.  Or even older threads were I repeatedly argued for signing James Wisniewski.  Holy s***, there's three top four defensemen I wanted who aren't named Ryan Suter and who are all currently playing top minutes for their respective teams. 


Repeatedly argued to sign a James Wisniewski who refused to sign with Detroit?  Good luck with that one.

#2341403 Old Red Wings Wallpaper, from 01-02

Posted by rrasco on 18 January 2013 - 08:19 PM

Awhile back I was going through some old hard drives and stumbled across these wallpapers I downloaded over 10 years ago.  The timestamps on the files were from 11/21/2001.  Resolution pretty low, but I'm pretty sure I was running a 15" CRT back then at 800x600.


I thought some folk around here would appreciate them.

Soooo happy to see these back Mike!  Killer new design too; I was waiting to see what you had in store for us.  I'm curious, do you have a jersey pre-made for players of all teams or did you create a template?

It's been a long road for Patty.  I'm so happy for him.  He must be so relieved.

Mine still says $0.00 from last year too.  I was just on the phone with DTV and the guy told me it was $60; four payments of $14.99.  He looked it up because he didn't believe me it would be that cheap for the whole year, but then I told him about the lockout.  He confirmed that information as has been reported.

While you guys boycott the NHL.  I'll be watching hockey drinking a cold one.  Enjoy!

Nice.  Second one was just like that SO goal he pulled on Niemi a few years back.

#2339312 NHL, NHLPA reach tentative agreement on new CBA

Posted by rrasco on 11 January 2013 - 02:27 PM

Honestly, I don't have much of a problem with Pierre. When he isn't slobbering over Sid, he can actually be a pretty decent commentator. 


Me neither.  He's pretty dang knowledgeable, no matter how creepy he is.  He's not as bad as say...Edzo.  Anyone remember that game against Chicago?  I'm pretty sure it was that OT winner Pasha banked off of their guy in front of the net...when Edzo was all like "SIGH, Wing's win".

#2337479 NHL submits offer to NHLPA - **Suspension Warning Post #70 & #273*

Posted by rrasco on 03 January 2013 - 02:48 PM

Hearing rumours NHL teams are reaching out to their coaches and telling them to be ready. Some are booking flites to their cities.


I would be excited if I had not heard that 2-3x already during these 'negotiations'.

LOL.  I guess we hit a nerve.  My favorite part is where they are crying that all the Americans get developed in the CHL but all five goals were scored by NCAA players.

1. Call it and not the 'false offense'.

2. Can they post GIFs in the locker rooms instead?
