#2681624 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

Posted by kickazz on 01 July 2016 - 03:07 PM

Holland hasn't done the best job. Miller contract was useless and Helm is overpaid for what he can do (I don't care if he would have gotten more money as a free agent). But I also can't agree with people blaming Holland for not landing some of the players like Lucic, Okposo or Eriksson. It's upto the players whether they want to be here or not. Detroit is not UFA destination it used to be and we have to realize that.


Some people revert into their former high school logic and start blaming Holland for literally every single thing. No one can take you seriously if you can't differentiate between an instance when Holland really IS at fault and when he ISN'T. 


So far I'm frowning at Holland for the Helm/Miller deals but giving a slow golf clap for the Vanek deal and a nod for Nielsen with a questioning look about the length of term. We can only truly know if these things pan out once the season is underway.

I think our D in their own end is underrated on here. Way better than previous years. They're usually always there to clear the second chances

Any idea where the Wings stay when they're in Montreal?
Near the Bell Centre I'm guessing.  Random question, I'll be in mtl the weekend and just got tix.

Just realized I haven't posted here since the Cup win :o


So we can blame you for not having won since 2008?

Yes let's make our team much worse since we're playing so well
Not to mention no team would take Franzen's contract and most likely nobody would take E's either. We'll have to wait until the deadline to move Q for a 7th rounder if we're lucky....

No team is taking on huge contracts for picks
Every team is up against the cap unless their a team transitioning to youth in which case nobody wants our aging vets with lots of term. If we trade anybody it's going to be Jurco/Pulks/Helm/Smith

Why all the hate on Smith. He and Kindl have looked like the best 3rd pairing in the NHL so far. Is it because he was a first rounder and people want more points out of him? He covers a lot of ice and breaks up a lot of plays out there. A turnover here and there is no reason to crucify him.

I just want to see 22 year old developing instead of 35 year olds declining. Jurco and Athanasiou bring more to the table than Franzen and Richards, imo.

I think you've made your 'younger automatically equals better and more exciting' opinion abundantly clear.

#2630583 Why Is The Joe Half Empty?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 13 October 2015 - 09:09 PM

I just tuned into the Tampa game and I noticed all kinds of empty seats and am wondering why? What happens when they move to the new arena? Is this a result of basically not being a Cup contender since 2009?


It's a Tuesday night game and judging by when you posted there was only a couple minutes left in the 3rd period.  People leave early.


It's not that unusual.

Posted by DickieDunn on 13 October 2015 - 12:35 AM

Hatterkader. Offer him 3 deals, 6x$3.75, 5x$4, 4x$4.5. Too much money for too long and it will bite us later

Is Greene even playing?

NO.   Andy still plays for New Jersey.  Matt's in LA.


(sorry couldn't help myself.)

Some of us would kill to have this fool on the team, he is exactly what the Wings have been missing for way too long. A big, rugged, nasty powerforward that will score you 20 + goals each year.


Take Lucic, add about 75 IQ points, remove about 20 punds of fat, and give him a soul and you have Abdlekader: a big, rugged, power forward that can score 20 goals. No need for the "nasty" part.

Got 13 16 bucks on the Habs.

Just heard they sent Kassian to rehab. I thought he was already a hab

#2622940 Franzen's Gift to Nyquist

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 12 August 2015 - 02:01 AM

Am I the only one who took this as some dry wit from Franzen? I thought he was implying Nyquist did not like Babcock. Franzen always seemed to have a pretty dry, sarcastic sense of humor in his interviews.

Bernier - : "How many times do I need to bail out our s**** defense? Exactly" - Walks away. 

Reimer's confidence is under the gutter unfortunately. Toronto ruined him. 

Bernier: " Nelson Mandela would have never let his team play such s*** defense"
