#2314733 Ryan Suter agrees to 13-year, $98-mil deal with Wild

Posted by puckbags on 04 July 2012 - 12:59 PM

And now the Wings miss the playoffs for the first time in 21 years. I feel like Holland dropped the ball.


Dropped the ball? Are you serious? He made huge long term offers to both guys, It sounds like Parise was never coming here and Suter made a decision to go elsewhere...how is that dropping the ball? We are not talking about 5 time norris trophy winners or 50 goal scorers here. Very good players Holland made more then fair offers to. It's called free agency for a reason..these guys have a free choice to go where ever they want.

Wild players ecstatic. Heatley says he spoke with Suter 2 nights ago and swapped texts with Parise. Both asked: can we win. Answer: yes.

So let me get this straight..Heatley told them they can win and they took his word for it? What the hell does Heatley know about winning?

I wouldn't have wanted Suter at that cap hit. Yuck. He's not even a top-5 defenceman in the league.


I agree, sometimes the best moves you make are the ones you don't. I would have loved to have him but 13 yrs at 7.5 per for a guy who really hasn't done anything in this yet.


#2312677 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by puckbags on 02 July 2012 - 09:55 AM

Right handed shot. 20 goal guy. Knows the system. Solid in his own end. Could have done worse. Welcome back Sammy


#2310741 Red Wings OUT of bidding for D Justin Schultz

Posted by puckbags on 28 June 2012 - 12:20 PM

Holland did his due diligence, not his fault Schultz didn't want to come here...


Exactly..whether you think this kid is a bit of a ****** or not he can choose wherever he wants to go, the system is built that way. Makes me laugh how people around here think we are entitled to some of these guys. Schultz didnt say he was coming here..Parise has never said he's coming here and Suter has never said he's coming here. I hope we get 1 or both of them but I won't be crushed if we don't . Guys have their reasons to pick where they want to play.


#2310241 Parise Likely Out. Next Options

Posted by puckbags on 26 June 2012 - 08:55 PM

With Parise´s comments about him going back to NJ I cringed because I want him to distract some teams while we go for trades or signings. In example: Bobby Ryan, Semin, Suter.


If we could sign Semin and somehow trade for Ryan that would make me feel all warm and tingly inside..two right handed goal scorers. Let the mind games being, Parise is saying all the right things..there is no way he gets more then 8 mill.


#2309978 Peter Mueller

http://blogs.denverp...ng-offer/10891/

24 yrs old
From Michigan
6 2"
RH shot
Plays right wing or centre
Former No. 8 overall

Avalanche have not qualified him and he will become a UFA. Injury issues the last few years.

Would you guys consider this guy to be a perfect fit for what we need? I would LOVE this guy at 3rd line centre and move helm down to the 4th. This would provide 3 scoring lines. OR he could be a backup if we don't land Parise or Semin (we might not want him).

Thoughts?

Helm deserves 3rd line minutes and there would be no reason at all to move him to the 4th and get less minutes..if anything he should play more not less.




#2307858 If we fail to reload with top UFAs we should?

Posted by puckbags on 18 June 2012 - 02:37 PM

That's what I'd put my money on too. Suter and Semin. I don't like Semin but It's not about what I like.


I agree. Not huge on Semin's work ethic but if playing on Datsyuk's wing and getting set up all season isn't enough to give him a kick in the ass then I don't know what is.

Chris Stewart


We all get your man love crush for Stewart..put it in your sig so we don't have to see you type his name every day !


#2307377 My 2012-13 Roster

Posted by puckbags on 14 June 2012 - 01:18 PM

I thought for sure this was a bluesadams thread. I feel like we have so manyyyyy of these threads and they ALL are the pretty much the same thing. Maybe swapping a player or two.

Anyways I don't know about Semin, he will want to much and is known for being lazy. It would be intriguing to see him play with Datsyuk but not sure if that outweighs his known laziness.


I agree, can't we sticky a capgeek/fantasy/dream world/I made this trade on Nhl 2012 thread?


#2305611 Cool Stevie Y story

Mitch Albom wrote this story on the morning of the Wing's cup clinching win in 1997. How incredibly spoiled have we been for the last 25 years to have 2 such amazing captains.

#2303845 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

Posted by puckbags on 30 May 2012 - 03:04 PM

Plan on wearing my Lids Winter Classic jersey tomorrow and cross my fingers this isn't what it sounds like..


I guess we can hope that the reason for the presser is that he is announcing that this is his final season coming up..one can only hope but according the media he is hangin em up.


#2302579 What's the point of the crease?

Posted by puckbags on 22 May 2012 - 09:54 AM

I think the crease is there solely to keep Homer's ass directly from touching other goalies faces.


#2301364 Babcock and Holland want to keep Homer.

Posted by puckbags on 14 May 2012 - 10:42 PM

I don't think Gaustad's the second coming of Gretzky. No one does. I DO think he'd help.

"ZOMG he doesn't fight that much! (Only four fights last season! And he lost two of them!!!)"
"ZOMG 6'5 isn't big enough! (The Wings are already a very big and physically imposing team!!!)"
"ZOMG Nashville gave up a first-round pick for him and he was a pain in our collective ass and we gave up a first-rounder for Quincey and Quincey sucked so ZOMG they overpaid and we don't need to overpay for players!!!"

He's a free agent this summer. If he's asking for 4 million, then sure - pass on him. But if he can be had for less than 3? I'd say it's worth it.


Excuse my old ass ignorance but what the hell does ZOMG mean? Is that something Beiber says?


#2300561 Suter most likely out of Nashville

Posted by puckbags on 10 May 2012 - 03:28 PM

If Holland offer them both $7.5M per for 5+ yrs. That should be enough to entice both of them. But if they'd rather sign in Columbus for $9M, then let them... I don't doubt that if their respective clubs don't see a re-signing coming, their rights will be traded before they become UFA's...



That worked out good for Wiznoooooooooooski !!
