Zetterberg Datsyuk Franzen

#2534241 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 14 August 2014 - 11:38 AM

But do you lose players like Lidström, Rafalski and Stuart over several years and still do absolutely nothing to bolster the defense?

 

We should thank our lucky stars that hometown DeKeyser fell into Holland's lap or our defense would be an absolute s***fest.

 

 

KFQ!

It's real easy if you choose to do absolutely nothing.

 

Being an active GM on the other hand is incredibly hard.

 

Its not like the guy scheduled a two week vacation to the moon and skipped free agency the last few years.  There's plenty of info that suggests he kicked a ton of tires, made several intriguing offers, and in most cases those players chose not to come here for various reasons.  He's not soley to blame for our recent downturn.  You don't lose people like Lidstrom, Rafalski, and Osgood and replace them all right away...in some cases you may never be able to replace talent like that.

Bickell can go fly a kite....but Seabrook would be nice for the right deal.


#2530881 Kane & Toews Sign Identical 8-year, $10.5M AAV Extensions

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 09 July 2014 - 04:38 PM

this is cute.....why don't they get married while they're at it and then they can punch cabbies together?  There's no way Kane is worth that money! 

 

 

and don't get me started on Toews' playoff beard......

#2529787 Hollands new contract a no brainer?

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 03 July 2014 - 02:08 PM

Holland is the no-brainer, not the contract.

this lack of action from Holland is making want to go watch another lack of action......world cup soccer.




#2524869 Brad Richards bought out by Rangers

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 20 June 2014 - 01:19 PM

Trade Weiss and Kindl for Edler (they will need a center when after they trade Kesler) and sign Richards and Stralman.

 

Zetterberg,Datsyuk,Franzen

Nyquist,Richards,Tatar

Jurco,Sheahan,Callahan

Abdelkader,Helm,Miller

Ferraro

 

Kronwall,Stralman

DeKeyser,Edler

Smith,Ericsson

Lashoff

 

Howard

Gustavsson

 

love the thought but that's far too much paperwork for Holland to comprehend......so let's give Cleary another 3 years and call it good.




#2524797 Wings officially have vacancy in asst coach spot

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 20 June 2014 - 09:21 AM

How many of the good or great coaches past or present are former star players?  I don't know why so many fans think that good player=good coach. 

 

Chelios has a cushy front office job now.  Why would he want to go through the grind and travel demands that come with being a coach?  Same with Lidstrom.  He left because he wanted to return to Sweden and spend time with his family?  Why would he want to come back and coach? 

 

 

Cleary!!!!!!!  By that logic......mediocre player=great coach.




#2464568 12/14 GDT : Penguins 4 at Red Wings 1

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 14 December 2013 - 08:45 PM

Does anyone else think Don Cherry is significantly retarded?


#2464522 12/14 GDT : Penguins 4 at Red Wings 1

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 14 December 2013 - 08:26 PM

I want a Vanek. Someone to bury the effing puck when we desperately need someone to bury the effing puck.


We have Sammy, what else do you want?


#2439093 Bertuzzi Needs To Retire

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 26 September 2013 - 07:52 AM

Bert has plenty to offer still....we'll want him during the shootout and the first time Orpik or Phaneuf lays out a speedy newbie forward of ours.


#2434573 Franzen: "I am not a goal scorer"

Next article will be Sammy talking about how he's not comfortable being a regular roster player.


#2433786 Gustav Nyquist loses puck from his first NHL goal

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 21 August 2013 - 09:24 PM

He's a very promising young player but still needs to work on his puck possession.


Bahahahaha


#2433674 New enemies, whom do you fear the most?

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 20 August 2013 - 03:50 PM

I fear Grand Rapids the most....they take our talent and leave us with Sammy and Bert pretending to be roster players.
