#2531067 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by marcaractac on 10 July 2014 - 03:34 PM

It's ok, folks. He'll be injured by November and miss the rest of the season anyway.

I hope Mantha saves this franchise.


He will in 2019 when he finally gets called up.

I remember a certain RichDG whining and moaning about our 2013 draft selections. I'm beyond giddy that about 5 of those 8 are already showing stellar promise. When is Axe coming back?

When it comes to big names on the market we have...
















Think we should pursue any of those guys? that's only like 13 players that could probably step in and half ass Niskanen or Alfredsson's job at a fraction of the price. Screw it sign Niskanen and Iginla and let those losers walk

Bertuzzi with a great performance in the third period..playing his pest style, blocking shots on the PK & getting two important goals as the Storm win 5-2 over the Oil Kings

we need to trade for Kesler and Edler.


Considering what it would cost to get them vs what they bring, I think there are better options out there.


Edler might be worth going for considering he's coming off a disaster of a season and his value is at an all time low, but I wouldn't even inquire about Kesler.


They'll want a ton for him and he's not worth any of the prospects the Canucks would want for him.

Memorial Cup Val d'Or vs London Knights  is on Sportsnet tonight. Griffins play tonight as well. What a dilemma.

You got me.  I thought all Red Wings entered the NHL having already won the Stanley Cup.  But then you dropped this knowledge on me and WHAMMO, reality check. 
Boyle, Iginla, Alfie, and everyone like them are losers.  Yes they've had successful careers and blah, blah, blah, but I'd rather we give the spots to young guys and let them develop a winning culture by...ya know...winning (and perhaps losing) together like they did in GR, rather than give their roster spots to a bunch of old hacks who haven't ever won anything. 
Realistically we're years from another Cup anyway.  Lets use those years developing a new core of winners instead of washed up has-beens. 

Yeah Rafalski was a loser too... Hell even Hull and Robitallie were losers.

Gimme break. Kip, ur not usually one to hold irrational bias but ur doing just that at the moment.

Sproul and Ouellet are still big ? And we have money to spend. Signing a Boyle wouldn't be a terrible loser decision.

Just for information..
David Pagnotta ‏@TheFourthPeriod 1 Min.
In a conference call with the media, SJ GM Wilson says Dan Boyle will not be re-signed, and Martin Havlat will, presumably, by bought out

That is good news for us. I say we do 2 things to improve our D:
1) Time for Ken Holland to make a ballsy move. If he is willing to take a risk to sign an injury prone Stephen Weiss to a 5.5 million dollar deal for 5 years, then he should for sure be willing to take a risk to go after Torey Krug. Everytime I watch Krug play, he reminds me so much as Nick Lidstrom (offensively only of course). He keeps his game simple and always makes sure that he gets the puck to the net. Does not always feel the need to wind up for the big clapper, but he does know when he can. Either way, his shots always generates good scoring chances. I think Kenny should go all out for him and offer him a contract that Boston simply cannot match. IMO if we offer around 7 million, Boston can't match that. This is such a good move because it makes us a better team for many years, but as Zetty and Pav said they want, it makes us better NOW as well. Obviously it is a risky move, but I have little doubt we would benefit from this.
2) Then sign Dan Boyle to a cheaper contract for 1 or 2 years. He gives us some nice veteran experience on the blue line, right handed shot and, most importantly, gives us a better team NOW.
So now our Defense will look something like this:
Kronwall- Smith
Krug- Dekeyser
Ericsson- Boyle
That is a MUCH BETTER blue line that will give the team a greater chance to win on a nightly basis.
3) Sign Gaborick or trade or get Hossa if available.
That would be pretty much all we can do, but look at what our team could look like with those moves:
Zetty- Pav- Franzen (use him as Homer net front)
Nyqyist- Weiss- Hossa
Alfie- Sheahan- Tatar
Jurco- Helm- Abby/ Glendending/ Miller
Kronners- Smith
Krug- Dekeyser
Ericsson- Boyle
That would be a very very good team and for sure would be our best lineup since 2009. The problem is kenny does not have the guts to make a bold move like that for Krug.

Offer Krug $7 mil. Unless you mean over 3 years and not per season, that is the single dumbest idea in the history of hockey.

Boyle is old and slipping. Gaborik is injury prone and one dimensional. Marchenko and Jurco would both be better ideas. Hossa would cost a top prospect and is signed too long.

Anyone else feel like nyquist is this yers brunner? Trade him now while we still can!


Brunner played all year with Datsyuk or Zetty. Nyquist was good all season with Zetty and when Pav and Hank were BOTH out, Nyquist raised his game even more and single handedly took our team to the playoffs. Nyquist displayed that he is not only a good player, but also a smart player, a hard worker, a team first kind of guy and most importantly, a good leader. That is NOT the type of player you trade away and he is absolutely not even comparable to Brunner. My god some ppl...

#2519618 So what do we have to trade?

Posted by STL-Wings on 07 May 2014 - 02:31 PM

No to Miller.  Not getting younger.  Sure he is a local and his brother but as far as this organization at this moment...no.  Ten years ago was another story.


Now if you said Johnathan Quick wants to play here then we can talk. 


Miller and Howard are, I think, the same level and the fact that Howard is a bit younger tilts me to keeping him.  He had a bad season.  If it continues, yes, make a change.  But this year was crazy in almost every regard all over the roster.  Give him a season to fix it.
