#2530009 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by number9 on 04 July 2014 - 06:06 PM

My argument is look at out lack of center depth and question marks...legwand on a one or two year deal would've been good.

Whereas defense where our question marks elite defense? Quincey isn't. Right handed defenseman? Quincey isn't. Depth defenseman? Quincey is but well would you rather have Quincey or marchenko? Or sproul? Or oullete? Etc etc

At center right now we got dat Weiss Sheahan and helm. Helm and dat have some injury issues. Weiss is the biggest question mark in this team. Can he stay healthy? If so, can he be a number two center again?

After those four we got z and glen. Z also has injury issues and is better to be at wing and glen is a fourth liner. Anderson is also a fourth liner.

The reason why legwand makes the most sense of any of our UFAs is because he is a cheaper insurance policy for injuries which WILL happen and for if Weiss can't live up to his contract. If they do....then put legwand at wing hell he had 50+ points.

So yes comparing legwand to Quincey in terms of ho is a bigger need an cost is quite easy...if you think.

We have Dats, Weiss, Helm, Sheahan, Andersson, and Glendening

Zetterberg is also elite at C if we need him, and Franzen is a capable C as a last resort (don't turn this into an I hate Franzen thread)

Ur crazy to think we need more Cs, it's one of our deepest, if not the deepest, positions we have.

#2529684 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Ok I don't like Quincey either, but for all of you who think he can do no good and is the spawn of satan, here's somes stats.


Only RW D-man to play the full 82 games

2nd best takeaway to giveaway ratio among D-men on the team

3rd in hits and blocked shots among RW D-men (even when pro rated)

3rd in SH time on ice per game among our D-men


Advanced stats aren't good though if you give those kind of things credit

#2529398 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by number9 on 02 July 2014 - 10:51 AM

I for one wanna watch my team actually play hockey, so yeah, no tank

#2529280 Sheahan Re-Signed: 2-Years @ $950k/season

Posted by number9 on 02 July 2014 - 01:44 AM


Same. I think the Nyquist deal set the standard. I see the same for Tatar.


I think Tatar wants more. I love him, but he strikes me as a Hudler type.

Get to know our new D-Man!




Kyle Quincey. Bland, fried in bland, with a side of bland. Served with a tall glass of bland.


Playing style?

Ehrhoff and Boyle signed lower than expected, but I think more than a few other guys are getting too much

#2527483 UFA day looking up

Posted by number9 on 30 June 2014 - 11:55 PM


Samuelson is *worth* more than league minimum on a 2-way contract. But there is a opportunity cost lost by carrying that player and cap hit, so even if he does add value to the team, there is also a lose of value just by virtue of having him and not being able to have the alternative. In KFQ's cause he is taking up cap space/roster space/veteran in AHL space that other players are better suited for.


Just let it die man, he's gone. This is a pointless argument. I'm sorry I continued it. Comparing Sammy to Q is dumb too and beside the point.

#2527481 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by number9 on 30 June 2014 - 11:50 PM

I know right?! Makes me think Boyle is the guy because they don't want to get caught in a long term contract.

I think that's exactly what's happening. They're signing more stop gaps until the the kids are ready. It's been the plan for the last 3 years. They don't want to pay inflated market value for others team youth when they know we have a crap ton of our own on the way.


EDIT: Plus we're going to be end up against this the cap this year after signings and it will only get worse next year and so on. They don't want to commit to an inflated long term deal that will bar us from signing our prospects in the future

No matter how little money KFQ takes he is still not worth the spot he would take up on the roster. This is a perfect example of the team getting better by subtraction.


He's not coming back. Ok? We'll never know if it's PR spin or not. You have ur Red Wings live in fantasy land opinion, I have a different one, but at the end of the day the loser is gone so lets just be happy about it.


On a two way contract I'd take him!

#2527473 UFA day looking up

Posted by number9 on 30 June 2014 - 11:29 PM


Yes, but the rest of the sentence still doesn't change the overall meaning: That given the chance they would resign him. That shows you just how disconnected the Wings' front office is from the real world.


Yeah and maybe that chance is only if he signs at a significant paycut... but what do I know I live in la la land with Holland and the care bears.


EDIT: But I agree with RZ. This screams PR. "Oh we'd love to re-sign him... but we don't have the money! Sorry Q!" It's the same thing I tell the bums on Woodward

#2527468 UFA day looking up

I think a UFA day of Niskanen and Boyle would be a very good day for us.  I would be happy with those two.  I know the risk in Boyle's ager and Niskanen's one year wonder, but it sure beats sticking with what we have and not giving it a try.  I would admire Holland's balls (what?) if he is able to land both. Plus that means Quincey is definitely gone and more than likely Kindl is also!


That's a little too R-rated for me! Joking aside, this whole "Holland has no balls" appeal to emotions, attacking his masculinity thing, is getting old. Plenty of GM's make big gutsy moves, only to have it majorly bite them in the rear. Milbury, Holmgren, Snow etc. He plays a conservative close to the vest style. If he really does lack guts, he makes up for it in brains.

#2527342 Spezza Requests Trade

Posted by number9 on 30 June 2014 - 07:02 PM


Ottawa is not going to trade their potential top scorer to a divisional rival. It has nothing to do with Holland.  Vancouver had to because they had no other choice.


Those things don't matter in NHL14
