Posted by Cali-Wing-Nut on 05 December 2013 - 11:02 PM

Last night, they were showed a pretty cool photo of everyone that will be playing in the alumni game.  My Dad perked up at the sight of it and Im hoping I may be able to get one for a Christmas gift.

 

Anyone know where I can search this out?  I checked Shop NHL and the Auctions ect and couldnt find it. 

 

Any help?




#2411072 Red Wings don't belong in the same rink as the Hawks?

1 more loss and Chicago won't belong on the same rink as Detroit.

 

Quoted for undeniable truth :D

 

But I think it should read.

 

1 more loss and Chicago won't BE ALLOWED on the same rink as Detroit.

Lets just say that Abbey got screwed and move on.  He popped on the hit but he didnt shoot an elbow or shoulder straight at his head. 

 

We should worry more about actually getting a fkin net as we have been given ample opportunity and blew it out our arse.

If keeping some stupid playoff streak is the main goal, you're doing it wrong.

 

This roster needs some serious revamping.

No the roster is young.  They lack experience but they are just fine on the team.  Dropping multiple core players and the best defenseman in modern times doesnt help in the following year.

I can say for once Im cool as a cucumber waiting for the real season to start.  Getting to 22 post-seasons was my hope this year, every number at the top of the page I see is gravy.

#2325930 2012 Lockout Watch

Posted by Cali-Wing-Nut on 19 August 2012 - 12:35 AM

The big hangup from what I can tell are the Coyotes the Panthers and the other small market teams. They are getting murdered with the salary cap floor. While Det, Pitt, Van, Chi, Phi, NY ect are making massive profits, the small teams arent keeping up. Since it is easy to say that they should move the team to a bigger market, that has a much bigger affect and isnt all that easy.

I think the cap should be the same. I also think minimum salary should go up. Last I think the cap floor should drop. This will keep small teams from over paying players just to get above the cap floor. This will also contract the inflation in salaries because of the floor. More or less, if a player sees that some no name team is paying a top 40 defenseman top 20 pay because of the cap, the top 20 players are going to want pay that is exponetially higher. This has a circular affect that keeps feeding on its self and over time making the problem worse.

I also would like to see the teams being able to release players the same way as the NFL. If you get hurt, thats life, youre a millionaire that has a bad knee. No need to keep the player under contract if they cant play. Eaves is a perfect example for this, a great guy and good player but is dragging the finacials because he cant play but also cant be released. This is a bigger issue for teams with WAY less cash the DET.

Bettman needs to work it out, if he oversees another lockout I pray my wishes are fulfilled and he is sent packing. We dont need such an anti player commisioner.


#2315234 Holland comments on Suter & Parise going to Wild

Posted by Cali-Wing-Nut on 04 July 2012 - 08:21 PM

How do you know he didn't pursue other options before trade deadline or even before that? Remember, Holland didn't have a lot of cap room (or trade bait) to appeal a good trade.

Who could he have went after? What could he give up that DRWs could afford to lose? How much cap space did he have to work with before last year?

It's not like he had a lot of options when DRWs were up against the cap before last year, and last year there was no good FA. At deadline there was no good Dman available.

At least try to be realistic.


His job is to DO not to TRY. You know you have a cush job when all you gotta do is "try" and its okay.

I dont think Illitch is a TRY type of owner. Holland earned his mulligans but I think hes getting close to or fresh out of them after the last few years of non results.

I am a business owner and if I was in a sector that was as fast moving and cut throat as hockey was, Holland would have one last chance at this point. Otherwise hes costing you money at the risk of no return.

I had to let go our shop foreman for this very reason, he got way to comfortable in his job and finally took advatange of our good graces one too many times. Holland is on borrowed time unless he makes a monster deal to shore up our team.

Say what you will about Holland's job the past couple years, but you can't fault him for what happened with Parise and Suter. He did just about everything he could to land Suter here.


Nope cant fault him for Suter and Parise (Detroit doesnt have farmland to drive a tractor around on), I can fault him for not having a good go to plan. He rode out Nicky till he left and now hes in a situation that could actually cost him his job.

When it gets down to brass tacks, he makes some type of huge trade to get our team to where it needs to be or hes out. If Im Illitch thats the only out I give you. Then its Jim Nills turns until we can pick up Stevie if that ever happens or ever turns into a good idea.
