Comments like these make me want to cancel my subscription to LGWs.
 
Holland is now all of a sudden a bad GM because he didn't sign David friggin Booth?
 
Please.


No that is not what I am saying. It's because he makes promises to washed up players like cleary and signs Quincey for over four mill per he could have signed another comparable left handed defensemen about 1.5 mill per. He tends to get bent over the barrel more than most GM's in the NHL. He is overly cautious and then when he realizes he has come up empty handed he makes a quick fix trade or signing that doesn't really help the team.


#2532899 Bring in Loiselle or Poulin as assistant GMs?

Can Dombroski just be brought in to be GM of the Wings and Tigers?

"The Dan Cleary Center" sounds pretty good.


Do we really need to keep rehashing the same joke over and over again?

Pics or it never happened ;)


They showed a clip of it during the Wings vs. Hawks game the next day on NBC.

Why would the arena seat less than 20,000? 


I think they see the direction the team is headed.

Cautiously excited - if this arena is planned anything like the Wings last 3 off seasons it could be a disaster. 

Thankfully Holland will have no input in building the arena or it would come out looking like a pizza hut.


Im not thrilled about this because 2 years ago i was married on the ice in Joe Louis. Its going to be sad if they tear it down and we cant go back to where we were married.


#2530874 Kane & Toews Sign Identical 8-year, $10.5M AAV Extensions

Kane making over ten mill a year....still won't tip the taxi driver. Lol


#2530856 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 09 July 2014 - 02:52 PM

As far as picks go, I could see Holland offering a conditional 4th round pick that would turn into a 2nd round pick if Green re-signs with us.

I guess Lebron has narrowed his list down to 3 teams...the Heat, the Cavs...and the Red Wings. He has top four defenseman written all over him.

It looks like these contracts will be the norm in the next couple of seasons with the cap raising. Makes a guy like Franzen "although he floats" extremely reasonably priced.

I was talking about Legwand, since he's the center we gave up assets to get. 


But...but the streak man....the streak!

How do people not see how special this Jurco kid is going to be? He has a much higher ceiling than Tatar and I would possibly even consider trading Nyquist before Jurco. Kid is going to be unreal.


A lot of people like Tatar over Jurco because he has already shown he is capable of being a good player whereas Jurco projects to be a good player. A lot of people live in the here and now. I think it would be incredibly stupid if Holland got rid of either one.

@ArthurJRegner said #RedWings would like to move players like Landon Ferraro to #Capitals for Mike Green.
 
Annnnd, there goes that.


If Holland is able to trade for Green with Ferraro being the centerpiece and some draft picks I will renounce my will for him to be fired.

I'd be ok with giving up Backman or Jensen and Ferraro and a 3rd for a year of Green. Possibly resign him if he really impresses.


Well he would have to waive his NTC to come here so if we did make the trade he would, at least on some level, want to be a wing. I think it would be very likely he would re-sign with us after one year. Detroit may not be the top destination for UFA's any more but we def don't have problems keeping guys here once they play here.
