#2531805 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by number9 on 12 July 2014 - 11:12 AM

I'm having trouble understanding why the universal thought is that the price for Mike Green is generally pretty high.


If they are indeed asking for what others have suggested....


Why does Washington think they can reel in a high end, young, NHL-ready talent, a top prospect, and a high round pick for a guy who's value has dipped GREATLY, has one year left on his contract, and, from the structure of their team, is expendable?


When Spezzas and Keslers are being traded for the returns they got, that seems highly unreasonable even considering different positions are being compared as well as the manufactured value of a right handed d-man.

1 good rule, 2 bad

#2531729 Tomas Jurco's Ridiculous New Stick Trick

Posted by number9 on 11 July 2014 - 11:53 PM

The organization has gotta love this kid. Skilled. Hardworking. And a showman on top of that! He's my favorite of the kids at the moment. IMO he has the highest ceiling as well

#2531718 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Lidstrom was a competitor, hell all pro athletes are. You don't get to that level without being one. Knowing when to walk away is one thing he definitely didn't learn from Nick. I don't blame him completely, but he can't be so blind to think he can still hack it on this team.

Idk about u, but if I had made the big leagues I woulda milked every second out of playing for the wings. Especially if the GM was giving 2.5 million too. Sure beats retiring

Speaking of not valuing fans.....


This from Art Regner's latest article:






So it's true. He listens to the expert opinions of the staff he pays for this sort of thing. What an idiot.

So basically if Alfredsson re-signs Jurco is going down.

#2531028 What is the plan with Mrazek?

Posted by number9 on 10 July 2014 - 02:04 PM

Mrazek is better off with a heavy workload in GR. And if monster or Howie go down with injury he's the only one I trust to step in. The teams done a good job managing tender depth since Conklin IMO

#2530940 Kane and Toews both asking for $12M per year

Posted by number9 on 09 July 2014 - 10:32 PM

*lol* If I'm Toews I'm not going to sign under 11 per

10.5 is a bad contract, and 8 years is especially risky at that high of a cap it.

#2530936 Kane & Toews Sign Identical 8-year, $10.5M AAV Extensions

Posted by number9 on 09 July 2014 - 09:47 PM

Cap is gonna keep going up. These contracts won't be bad in 3 years time

When it happens (goes up significantly) I'll believe it.

#2530890 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by number9 on 09 July 2014 - 05:54 PM

I don't care what anyone says, that's a great signing. Like Dany Heatley or not, he is definitely worth the $1M gamble on a 1 year contract. Watch him be the steal of the offseason, putting up 50+ points on a line with Getzlaf and Perry. He may slot in on the second line with Kesler, but I think he would be great on the top line...

He's a freakin Allstar

#2530759 Mike Green to Wings?

Posted by number9 on 09 July 2014 - 10:14 AM

Y'all must be pretty green if you're actually believing these green rumors

#2530664 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by number9 on 08 July 2014 - 05:00 PM

a 56 point season followed by two 70+ point seasons, one which he scored 31 goals, and yes he has had some injury issues since, but from everything i've seen/read he is healthy now and probably wants to prove he is still elite. yes I would trade tatar, first off as you mentioned green will get you MORE points as a rh DEFENSEMAN than Tatar will as a forward. He IS what we need on the back end, and if thatis what it will take, then so be it. You cant expect to trade 4th liners for a top 2 dman. Sorry but that is ridiculous, and Green is worth the gamble.

Green is much more of a gamble than Tatar at this point. Is rather not move Tats and multiple other pieces for Green.

#2530658 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by number9 on 08 July 2014 - 04:47 PM

I certainly hope you're right. Just consider me a realist or in the wait and see crowd. Cause the only thing we have to go off is their recent history.

A realist would realize just how bizarre last season was when it came to injuries

I don't know why the city even gets brought up. Bloomfield Hills is a great place to live.

#2530527 Marchenko

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 11:01 PM

They clearly didn't know that Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan were ready to go... It took loads of injuries to find out. Same thing will happen again in all likelihood with the D. If there is anything you can expect from the Wings and Holland - they never change. 

That's fine. That's what I expect. Someone will go down and a kid will step in in. Perfect.
