#2618872 Tj oshie to washington

It's only a thing because of what he did for Team USA vs Russia in the Olympics.

Let's get him as well as Cheechoo while we're at it.

#2618846 Voynov pleads "No Contest" to Domestic Violence Charge

This probably never would have happened in the first place if she had a guy like Anthony Peluso with her.

He won't serve 90-days... if he does, it'll be min. security, house arrest or half-way house type situation I'm sure.
The probation and counseling are appropriate.
Thing that is a head scratcher for me.  8 hours of community service?
How skipping the 90 days of meaningless jailtime and give him 2160 hours of community service (90 days x 24 hours) that has to be served at a battered women's shelter.

Agreed. His time would probably be better served helping his community than locked in a cage. However the justice system is often more based on vengeance than rehabilitation, as exhibited by some of the knee jerk reactions here.

Helm is needed for 3 on 3 this year. His speed should dominate in OT

#2618607 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Posted by number9 on 01 July 2015 - 11:06 PM

Babs is soon going to find out just how F** in the A he really is. If Kip is correct in his assessment that he's overrated, it will come out this year. He's always had high caliber teams whether it's the Wings or the Canadian national team. Now he has a team that is basically Phanuef, JVR and Lupul. He's F*****. I can almost guarantee that Shanahan does not do this the correct way. They've signed a bunch of mediocre players and acquired a a bunch of mediocre prospects.What's next? Be mediocre.

#2617838 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by number9 on 01 July 2015 - 09:12 AM

I recall Weiss, Alfie, and Clarkson as the big three that year.

And Lecavallier. Which is why I'm fine with standing pat this year.

#2617789 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by number9 on 30 June 2015 - 11:09 PM

I have a feeling they're clearing space to go after Green heavily

Clearing out Weiss to go after Weiss, makes sense.

#2617787 Alexander semin being bought out

Posted by number9 on 30 June 2015 - 11:03 PM

Glad to be rid of Weiss, maybe we should sign Semin? Is like: maybe if I get addicted to meth I can give up doing crack.

People disappointed with players they know nothing about lmao

#2617363 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Posted by number9 on 29 June 2015 - 07:37 PM

This is by far the worst UFA class in a while. Everyone's going to get overpaid. This is a year that most teams should be conservative with signings, but someone will take a chance. I'll be fine if that isn't us.

Imagine a Wings team loaded with cheap young talented players a few years down the road, but too hamstrung with Weiss and Green type contracts to make constructive additions and make a cup run.

#2616305 Yzerman wins GM of Year (& other awards discussion)

Posted by number9 on 25 June 2015 - 08:11 PM

So when Lidstrom was winning Norris trophies, we loved the award. Now that Karlsson wins, the trophy is crap.


Am I following this thread correctly?


I don't think Karlsson is as bad as most contend, but I really can't believe Keith didn't get another. That guy was rel gud, and I hate the hawks as much as the next guy.

#2616180 OT Changes

Posted by number9 on 25 June 2015 - 08:23 AM

Does anyone else think this is going to make Derek Meech a lot more valuable of an asset, since he can play wing and defense?
I wonder if this is just what he needs to get back in the show.

Sign Meech NOW

#2615926 Re Wings open 2015-16 October 9 vs. Toronto

Posted by number9 on 24 June 2015 - 12:46 PM

I'm always excited for the home opener, but this is good. Let's set the tone of Babcocks next 10 years teach him what it feels like to be a leaf.

#2615899 Free agents this off season

Posted by number9 on 24 June 2015 - 10:35 AM

You just don't get it.  Because you're part of the PC police and also because you want hockey to become the same thing as women's soccer (which is significantly tougher than Men's soccer BTW).  Admit it. 

Hey, if you don't like it, unread it.

#2615852 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by number9 on 23 June 2015 - 10:51 PM

There has been a little talk about Zach Hyman coming here, but seems like our former coach is trying to pull one over on us.


FLA traded Hyman and a conditional 7th round pick (conditional on whether Hyman signs) to TO for Greg McKegg.



We must stop this former coach from stealing the guys we want!!! He must be stopped!


Hyman seems overrated to me. He was never good until Larkin was his C man. Let Toronto have him, and then let Babs cry when he doesn't have Larkin.
