#2532413 Kane & Toews Sign Identical 8-year, $10.5M AAV Extensions

Posted by achildr1 on 17 July 2014 - 08:24 PM

 

That was so aweful...makes Ozzy and Draper look like Daniel-Day Lewis clones. I seriously cant stand Kane in any sense...such a serious wiener.

Yea, but no one says what they'd do as GM. I bet if the average Red Wing fan became GM, he/she would make horrible trades and sign over priced UFA's. We'd be like the Leafs and our team would be build around guys like Kessel, Phaneuf, Lupul, Clarkson, van Reimsdyk and Bozak for the next 4 years plus. No thanks, I'll take Kenny, who's building the team with the draft, isn't signing any over priced UFA's, and actually knows how the cap works.

 

I understand signing Quincey and Cleary isn't "sexy", but they're only 1 and 2 year deals. That Niskanen deal is insane! Smith and Dekeyser are going to be better then him. Unless a team has drafted the player, I don't think any UFA should be signed for over 4 years. Do an online search and see how many horrible long term UFA signings there's been since 2005-06. The Wings don't have any bad ones over 3 years. The only potential bad one could be Weiss, but he's got a few years to still make the deal a good one.

Yes and Dan Cleary can play better hockey than anyone on this board too.  Like Cleary, Ken Holland is a professional (in theory), who is paid a LOT of money to do his job

 

Pretty much anyone in a professional field is better at their job than someone who isn't part of that field.  But that certainly doesn't mean that an outsider can't objectively see when someone is sucking at their job.

 

Edit: To add to that, if the new standard for managing the Wings is, "well, he's better than fans on a message board," we're in a s**t-tonne of trouble.




#2531822 Tom Renney could be leaving, too.

Calling Professor Larionov, Professor Larionov, please report to human resources...

 

I'm not sure he'd be the best PP coach. 

 

"Just make a perfect pass to the spot where you know Kozlov will be.  He'll make a couple nice moves in the corner and throw a no look pass to where Konstantinov will be, who is cutting back door from the point.  If Vladdy doesn't have a high percentage scoring chance then Fedorov will have already moved into position by the far post for an outlet.  Simple."




#2531782 Rule Changes in the AHL (what the NHL has considered)

Posted by Euro_Twins on 12 July 2014 - 09:37 AM

I think the helmet one is dumb. If you're in your own end on a pk defending and someone checks you, knocks the helmet off, somehow you deserve a penalty because you don't want to leave your team even more shorthanded to go put the helmet back on or go back to the bench?


#2531513 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 11 July 2014 - 10:35 AM

CapGeek ‏@capgeek 52s

Dan Cleary's bonus is $1 million for 10 games played. #RedWings

 

This s*** just gets more and more comical, Dano is going to make 2.5 million next year :lol:




#2529249 Can Z and Pav do anything to protest? (not that they would)

Posted by rick zombo on 01 July 2014 - 11:45 PM

Or they could, I dunno, lead their teams by example and continue to be awesome. Which they are.

 

Seriously, these two guys are freakishly classy and they’ref****** consummate pros. What do you want, a whiny star like Kesler? 




#2529887 Hockey News: Red Wings D hunting

Posted by Playmaker on 03 July 2014 - 08:34 PM

Tyler Myers can go right out the window. They want a ridiculous amount for him (heard 4 starters and a high round pick) and honestly he's not that good. He's just tall.

 

Byfuglien is an interesting option. He fills a lot of holes on our backend (size, toughness, and a righty). Seems like a better trade partner than BUF who is in our division. 

 

Don't know much about Petry. 

I don't want to imagine Big Buff filling any holes on my backend.  Immature and sleep deprived is not a good combination.  




#2526502 Kesler traded to Anaheim

I once saw Ken Holland murder a baby duck with his own hands.

#2517429 Was Legwand worth it?

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 26 April 2014 - 09:40 PM

Legwand will not be back... and we gave them Zetterberg 2.0 for a rental...

Kenny is saying one thing and doing opposite...

 

I think people are highly underestimating Zetterberg here. While Jarnkrok may turn into a good NHLer, it's wild speculation to claim he will ever have the passion, heart, and will to win of our current captain.


Well, 11 points in his first 12 games will do that.

 

Not to people who understand all of Z's intangibles.

Oh god I'm so sick of the Jarnkrok talk already
