#2530513 Hockey News: Red Wings ‘D’ hunting

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 10:29 PM

Manxy Manxy Manxy....Helm, Kindl and a 1st would bring in more than you think...but you can just keep attacking my post's without mature discussion or thought intriguing responses because you yourself do not know how things work.  You also lol'd and put the little shaking head emoticon up there when I said that Ehrhoff would get around $3.5M to $4M as a UFA because of his buyout, and you just decided to try to discredit my knowledge of hockey and my touch on reality....but wait, what exactly did he sign for?
 
Do me a favor, do not reply to my posts anymore or just hit the ignore button and don't read what I put up here. Thank you.
 
And for the record, the response "This isn't NHL xx" is getting about annoying as Holland kicking tires... I don't even play NHL xx...


A PKer, a low 1st rounder, and a waste of space Kindl doesn't get u Myers, project or not. Stop living in la la land.

Fine....top six DMan on a playoff team...regardless...he's an NHL player filling a spot for 80 game.  Sorry he isn't he next Bobby Orr..but he's an NHL PLAYER  and decent one at t hat.  Something more than pick #19 from the 2012 draft  likely would have been by now.
 
Sorry to rock the boat on one of the three memes of this board (Quincey sucks...Holland is dumb..Franzen blows)  but I honestly don't think the Wings biggest problem is Kyle F'n Quincey


Hey we agree on something!


#2530486 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 07:08 PM

I'm not really advocating tanking, but it worked pretty well for Pittsburgh and Chicago. The structure of the league just lends better to a compete rebuild than getting stuck in mediocrity. The Calgary Flames are the perfect example.


It also worked terribly for Edmonton and Columbus. Tanking is a last resort that too many ppl are overly eager to see. It's the big fish/name mentality. Either get a big name through trade draft or FA or they will be unhappy. Wings r smarter than that.

In reality this is hardly a tough decision ask yourself this:

 

Would you trade Tatar, a first and a cap dump for a young Chara, Pronger ? Personally I would but everbody is different.

 

I can play this game too. Would you trade a young Kessel, a first and a cap dump for Tyler Myers? Personally I wouldn't, but everybody is different.

They will settle. The asking price is all part of negotiations. Nothing significant will happen. Moore will get a fair amount of money and then this will go away.




#2530269 When will we know about Alfie? (Legwand signed w. Sens)

Posted by number9 on 06 July 2014 - 03:24 PM

At least he would've made an effort then. Like when he was brought in and everyone was injured.

I had no problem getting legwand I had a problem with what was have up for him.

I get your point but at same time you're comparing Ottawa to us...really?


You made the initial comparison bud, not me


#2530198 When will we know about Alfie? (Legwand signed w. Sens)

Posted by number9 on 05 July 2014 - 11:13 PM

Least they made a move to address a hole. While we did......?????

Hell they're not even going to be good and still addressed their hole on their lineup after trading spezza away.


It'd be like us replacing Datsyuk with Legwand. You'd be crying, not laughing. (And prolly ripping holland)


#2530196 Can Z and Pav do anything to protest? (not that they would)

Posted by number9 on 05 July 2014 - 11:08 PM

Thank u gmcom and ET. I'm a wings fan bc wings don't do the stuff shanyman robo and play r suggesting. U all almost seem excited for them to leave. Shameful.

I honestly think they are trying to build and maintain a culture here where players feel safe and appreciated.  Where if they have go through a slump, they won't fear being traded or instantly replaced.
 
Obviously they go to extremes at times.(Cleary) But sometimes the message sent can have a more profound impact down the road than the immediate repercussions.
 
I'm sure many believe that fear can motivate a player but I don't think that's a stable way of doing business.  I just don't see us trading roster players unless there's an issue with attitude or commitment or just too many bodies.
 
We definitely struck out this year in free agency.  No looking past that.  That's on management.  Injuries...that's a tough thing to place blame on.


Ur posts are like a breath of fresh air

I'd sign subban for7 or 8m and gladly lose four first rounders when you get a guy like that. But like others have said it will never happen for various reasons.


This sums up your pov so perfectly. Babs played PK in how many Olympic Games?


#2530138 Can Z and Pav do anything to protest? (not that they would)

Posted by number9 on 05 July 2014 - 05:44 PM

Nobody thought that Alfie would want to leave the Sens. Nobody thought that Gretzky would waive his no trade clause and leave Edmonton.
 
I'm not saying it would happen here, but it's not out of the realm of possibility.


The Sens are a mess and never got Alfie a cup. Gretzky never wanted to leave, but had to be dealt for financial reasons that Illitch doesn't have. It's not impossible, but it's a stretch.

Except he got a two year deal and it is literally just as an insurance policy.


Ignore my other points and nitpick the term. Whatever was, 2 years, is still blocking kids that r ready now and even more ready next year. Plus many will need to re-sign and well have 3 mill tied up in a 4th line C for 2 more years


#2530123 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by number9 on 05 July 2014 - 02:50 PM

Plus we have Nosek Campbell Porter Miele Pulkinnen and now possibly AA and Mantha fighting for a forward position. Just adding one of those guys puts us at the 23 man roster limit assuming Danny D and Tatar re-sign. There's no room for Legwand whether u like it or not.
And there's Ferraro and Callahan. Lots of prospects clamoring to play.

It's fine being optimistic like that but I don't see what the issue is with just having an insurance policy? When the same players have been injury prone have a back up plan IS THE SAFE THING TO DO. Now holland is putting all his eggs in the "if we stay healthy basket".
Yes I listed 7. 4 or 5 who WILL BE INJURED and three who are fourth liners. That's not enough and as of right now we DONT have a number 2 center. Maybe Weiss lives up to it maybe not.

Nothing wrong with an insurance policy especially when we got the cap space and yes 3m a year for a 50 point guy is cheap.


We also need a top 6 winger not named Alfie or cleary. And IF Weiss lives up to contract(I still doubt it) I'd try legwand at winger cause he is better then any options left in free agency because holland s*** the bed again.


Legwand at 3 mill for 3 years likely blocks a kid down the road


#2530060 It's too bad about us having Weiss...

Posted by number9 on 04 July 2014 - 10:13 PM

 
More like hurt but still extremely effective or low on the depth chart or playing with players that barely belong on the team let alone in the top 6.

 
I like to completely disregard facts and reality to make myself feel better, too.


I won't say he was a 3rd line C, but "extremely effective" is beyond generous if not wrong
