#2536023 Ericsson and Alfredsson not 100%

Can't you read? He's an amateur *finger.* he points at stuff, and touches things, and picks noses. Just not professionally.

:lol:

 

BOS, I'm sure Frank and I both have a certain special finger we feel like showing you :w00t:

But in all seriousness, can we still get in on the Jeff Finger sweepstakes?




#2535910 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

Posted by kipwinger on 10 September 2014 - 11:44 PM

I think it's interesting that everyone is blaming KH for this deal not being done, but if it were Tatar instead of Dekeyser we'd be inundated with comments about how Tats is an egomaniac who puts himself before the team.  Double standard much?

 

Dekeyser has only played 72 professional hockey games.  Whatever he and his agent are asking based on his modest point production and ice time is almost certainly too much.  But god forbid anybody call them out, because he's from Michigan.

I know you wouldn't want this thread to be about you, but how you doing anyway man?  I know its been a while since you were diagnosed.

Wow, thanks for asking.

I'm doing great. I can still hold my kids, play with them in the pool, and zipline with them at Whistler.

My parents and my brothers family joined us for a week in San Diego, then all flew to our home in Washington. We just took them to Whistler where we all, including my 75 yr old mumsy, did the longest tallest zip line in North America . (The kids did the bobsled run too, along with my wife)

My 13 yr old niece is putting together a little vacation vid, check it out (the older kids are my nephew and nieces, young one is Olivia , Lilja seemed to be sleeping a lot)





AND my life long friend from growing up in Michigan did an awesome Ice Bucket Challenge vid (he's Air Force) :




#2535067 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Frank I don't even know what to say in response to you sometimes but I can't resist...

The Bruins are not being "punished" for success or having a great goal scorer. They legally evaded the cap and deferred their bonuses to this year by choice. I suggest you do some research there...

So in your opinion... To attract free agents...we need to not do well...draft high...get some good young players...even though you just claimed no one knows how young players will ever turn out...or was that just relevant for our current prospects...whatever benefits your argument at the time I guess... OK.

Where...in Zeus' butthole...did you come up with this idea...and in what universe did that make sense...

PS. I may have had a drink...

#2535029 Fedorov and Yzerman vs. Datsyuk and Zetterberg

Posted by Uncle Danny on 27 August 2014 - 01:29 PM

Many people are pointing out differences between eras, line mates, etc, all of which is interesting for discussion.  The question, though, is which pair would you take.  For me that's #19 and #91 all day every day.  No knock on the "kids," but I'd be hard pressed to find many duos I'd take above them on any roster, let alone the Wings.

 

(#66 and #68 come to mind... #99 and, well, anyone also)




#2534934 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by vladdy16 on 26 August 2014 - 09:37 AM

It's great to make the playoffs, but let's win some Cups... Yes, 23 years in a row is AMAZING, but the Blackhawks have 2 Cups in their current run, the Kings have 2 Cups in their current run. Yes, we have 4 during ours and 6 appearances. Remember, in our first six years of the streak, we had 0 Cups and only 1 appearance... Creating an elite, winning culture is great and maintaining it will be increasingly difficult in the current NHL. I question whether of not Holland is the guy to do it. Look at how Yzerman has adapted in Tampa Bay or at how Nill has adapted in Dallas, why hasn't Detroit made any changes?

 

 

 

I don't think anyone is arguing against constructive criticism, but the absolute vitriol that spews on this board sometimes usually is frustrating most all level-headed fans and we're getting a little trigger happy.

 

Another thing I'm getting a little tired of is comparing Holland to Yzerman and/or Nill.  Apples and oranges.  The Lightening and Stars had almost nowhere to go but up to begin with.  They also aren't facing the same adversity as Holland - little cap space and an unwillingness to trade with the Wings.  These are pretty sizable barriers to contend with.  Also, neither has the pressure from the fans that the Wings organization has.  I'm not a Holland fanboy by any means, but let's be reasonable.

And since neither Nill or Yzerman is available to Detroit, what's a better option than Holland at this point?

#2534586 Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 19 August 2014 - 07:43 PM

@theScore: Kovalev is unsure why P.K. Subban is worth $72M: 'He plays like he did on streets as a child.' http://t.co/GoV5aINrNn http://t.co/AFKZPl1Rq8

SHOTS FIRED

 

It's pretty hilarious that Kovalev of all people would call out a player.  Especially the part about scoring 5 goals but allowing 5 goals.  Maybe check your career +/- there Alex.  The guy embodied the lazy Russian stereotype when he played.  

 

I guess he's not been getting enough attention lately?
