Can someone please pull a john Lennon on bettman ?

The game is growing and making money cause it's a great game .... It has nothing to do with gary bettman, now he's just trying to throw these billionaires what? An extra 4 million a year each?

Here's a crazy idea ... Why not just raise ticket prices by like 5 bucks a person so we don't have to see these stupid f***en ads that won't make anyone buy s***

Wait , there gonna raise the ticket prices regardless .... Assholes

In Topic: Red Wings Sign D Robbie Russo

This confuses me. Where does Russo fit on the Wings' depth chart? We have Marchenko, Oulette, Sproul all knocking on the door, plus Kronwall, Ericsson, Green, Dekeyser, Smith, Kindl, and Quincey. I would have imagined he would sign somewhere where he's more likely to play given that he lost his job with the Islanders due to depth.

Can't see kindl Quincey and smith having longterm futures in detroit

As for ouellet marchenko sproul and jensen who knows what'll happen with them , if they were top pairing guys they'd have forced there way on to the team(not saying none of them are nhl worthy at the moment)

+ he probably sees dekeyser who came straight from college and got in soon in the wings lineup and is performing as where as schultz and the other dmen to sign so far haven't done much

And in the article it mentions he's a redwings fan , if I was a college hockey player who turned free agent I'd sign with my favourite team if they wanted me ... At the end of the day regardless of where you play your gonna have to play your best if you wanna stick around

These players who want the easy in and want to go play for Edmonton and bottom teams I'd bet money they wont have great careers

In Topic: Abdelkader entering contract year, possible $4M extension?

If he gets another 20-25 goal season then yes he's worth the money , who else would you rather have than abdelkader in front of the net on the ppl? Hornqvist? I'd say abs is one of the best in the league at doing what homer use to do best

The fact that he's also a michigan kid is a big thing cause I don't think he would leave his hometown especially considering this is the only team he's ever played for ... If another team offers him 500k -1 mill per more I'd say he'd stay with detroit

And all those kids we have coming up won't be getting big money for another 5 yrs

I agree that this has likely lowered Sproul on the depth chart unless there is a trade on the way, which I see as a real possibility. I'd like to see us put a decent package together to make an upgrade on the back end. I know Kindl doesn't have much value, but maybe Kindl, Ouellet and another roster player (forward) could get us something... Sproul just has way too much upside to be sitting in Grand Rapids...

Like the signing since it cost us nothing so that's always good , just gotta hope he and pans out now

That being said what does sproul has too much upside to be sitting in Grand Rapids have to do with anything... He can have all the upside but if he's struggling in Grand Rapids he shouldn't be with the wings or the nhl , a lot of talented kids never made it

Let's hope sproul goes crazy this year cause we really need him to be a good redwing player for many years

I always tend to think regardless where the player is from who gives a s*** as long as he's good and contribute

Abdelkader is from Michigan , there's no way he's going anywhere ... Not a chance , the guy crashes the net and gets in opponents faces, he's becoming our holmstrom on the powerplay now(no one can ever be as good as homer)

Most of the players on the wings play the same style of game and he brings something to the team most of the other players don't bring

That being said when it's all said and done I could see something like a 4-5 year deal x4per .... All those kids we have coming up won't be getting big money for another 5-6 years so it won't be a problem at all to resign abs
