#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

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.

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

#2530559 Article on FAs and Red Wings

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.

#2530526 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 10:58 PM

I think at least 2 of our D prospects will be ready after THIS season - so ya it will interfere. Ideally we'd break one in this year and then move Lashoff and Kindl out and break in another next year.


I agree, but look at the contract Sheahan signed. I don't think it'll break us in the next 2 seasons

#2530524 Dylan Larkin - Highest draft pick since 1991

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 10:56 PM

Larkin seems to have the attitude the wings want. Which means whether he's 1st line or 4th he'll likely make it.

#2530522 Marchenko

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 10:52 PM

While everyone's moaning and groaning I think the wings kno they have guys like Marchenko, Ouelette, Sproul, Jensen, Pulkinnen, AA, Nosek, Ferraro, Callahan, Mantha, ready to go. That's like the best offseason upgrade you can ask for. Just one could make a huge difference, see: Nyquist.

#2530521 What's best for Mantha?

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2014 - 10:47 PM

Mantha is a perfect call up. Let him dominate in GR while he gets a taste via injuries. It will check his ego while also keeping him confident. Perfect scenario for a #1 prospect

#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.
