#2526190 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 27 June 2014 - 03:08 PM

I do think a lot of that has to do with the Sabres as a whole really. Myers has the tools, I think a fresh start could work wonders for him. Especially to have a vet like 55 to play with and learn from. 

Agreed. His first two seasons buffalo was a competitive team. Since then the team tanked and he went with them.

#2526163 Kesler traded to Anaheim

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 27 June 2014 - 02:21 PM

Oddly enough I read an article not too long ago that stated Anaheim is one of the worst places to live. I don't remember why though, probably because all they have going for them is Disney.  This is, of course, me talking about a place I don't live based on an article I read so take that for what you will.  I have been there though, to Disney.

I guess if you hate really nice neighborhoods, schools, awesome beaches, and yearly 70 degree temperatures then yea it would suck to live in Anaheim.

#2526158 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 27 June 2014 - 02:14 PM

People will be angry if we sign Niskanen...people will be angry if we don't. Man we are turning into Toronto fans.

#2526128 Kesler traded to Anaheim

I agree.  Anaheim didn't overpay, Vancouver didn't give Kesler away.

I would agree if the ducks gave them their 10th overall pick. But they somehow got away with giving their 24th in a weak draft. Anaheim won.

He's probably lying but it'd be impossible to debunk haha
"Trades will be announced at the draft. Some have been in discussion before then. e4"
In other breaking news Chicago is in talks to extend the contracts of Kane and Toews, e4

I agree that was a "safe bet post" by Eklund. That's like me saying there are some free agents ready to sign with other teams but they are going to wait till July 1st to announce it.

There is no way the Hawks can afford to trade for Kesler. They only have 4.6M left to sign 4 players. That to go along with both Toews and Kane looking to add on another 3-4+M each after next season. They're definitely not going to trade any of their big names (Toews, Kanem or Keith), They're not likely to trade any of their support guys either (Sharp, Hossa or Seabrook), and the Canucks aren't likely to take on any of their overpaid players (Bickell, Hjalmarsson or Oduya). I just don't see them adding a 5M Kessler to that lineup. Either way, the Hawks are going to be in for a world of hurt after next season when Toews and Kane are looking for their HUGE paydays...

I'm sure they would prefer not trading to Chicago or Anaheim if they could avoid it since they would face him a ton each season. It would make sense that they would prefer to go East but then again it comes down to what Kesler wants.

4.9M AAV reported by Lebrun. I'm sure it's heavily front loaded which explains the long term

#2525598 Alfie informs Wings he wants to return

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 24 June 2014 - 10:24 PM

wings trade 1st pick for 2nd + 3rd
boyle signs july 1st.
alfie signs july 2nd.
holland goes on to say...now we can see where mantha fits into our plans during training camp.." i like our team"
cleary gets 2 way deal in august....fails to make wings lineup....ends up retiring.
book it.

I hope we get more than that if we trade our first pick. Remember last year our pick wasn't as high and we traded it for another first round pick and a second round pick.

Danny D getting some love!
******* Roy!

#2525399 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 23 June 2014 - 10:28 PM

So like, what kind of numbers would Danny Boy have to put up to make people be happy he resigned?

45 points and be a plus player....and he will need to do my taxes next spring.

#2524839 Brad Richards bought out by Rangers

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 20 June 2014 - 12:08 PM

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun  3m
As @capgeek noted, Richards still owed $8 M in signing bonuses which are to be paid out in full over next 3 years plus $12.6 M in salary


I'm in the wrong business. 20 million dollars for nothing plus whatever salary he gets when he signs with a new team. He is hurting all the way to the bank.

#2524505 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 19 June 2014 - 12:18 AM

I watched all 82 Red Wings games last season and the funny thing is my jaw dropped when I saw Cleary played 52 games this season. If I would have guess i would have said around 25. That's how unmemorable he was last season. He was close to literally doing nothing for us offensively.

#2524469 Dan Boyle's rights traded to the Islanders…..

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 18 June 2014 - 04:30 PM

All these people saying we don't need Boyle because that won't win us a cup are like a broken record. Does adding Boyle guarantee us a cup? Obviously no. But what player is really out there that could do that? We have to start somewhere to fill our needs and I think he fills two of this teams needs immediately. Right handed shot....puck moving defenseman. End of story.

#2524291 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 17 June 2014 - 06:02 PM

This is it guys! I knew it was coming soon but it's finally here! This is the sign for the Apocalypse the Bible was referring too! Why else would God let this happen unless this is it! Dan Clearly is the sign guys!

#2523620 Trading up?

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 12 June 2014 - 02:06 PM

I'd do it, and I dont think it would be very crazy. Zetterberg is nearing the end of his career and Ekblad is a possible franchise defenseman.

"Possible" franchise player for our Captain? There have been plenty of 1st overall picks that didn't turn out to be what we thought they would. I'll keep Z thank you.
