#2617703 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by Helmethead on Yesterday, 07:24 PM

Cleary is Wayne Fontes. Rasputin. They short sheeted his bed, drugged his wine but no! They couldn't get rid of Cleary!


#2617610 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Dumb move. We're not hurting for cap space next season and now Weiss is on the books for 6 seasons. If Weiss still didn't improve under Blashill, we could have done the same thing next year for a more reasonable penalty over 4 seasons rather than 6.


#2617383 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Not surprised one bit, but still disappointing. Standing pat when making first round exits is not okay. All other teams are constantly aiming to improve any way they can. Wings have more prospects than they can keep, why not use some to bring in a quality player? More teams are passing the Wings up because they're willing to take chances and make moves. At least find someone to dump Weiss on. I'd even be happy with that and clearing space.

 

If we had an aging roster....I agree. When you are re-building, standing pat and letting your players develop is not a bad thing.

Yes...that's it exactly...Ken Holland doesn't want to win the cup..he's only pretends to.




#2617092 Pronger (contract) and Grossman to for Sam Gagner and conditional pick

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 28 June 2015 - 10:56 AM

So Pronger is an employee of the NHL front office while also being employed as an NHL player under contract (who just got traded) while also becoming eligible for the HHOF because of the new bylaws?  That's some impressive Pronger physics. 

 

I wonder if the Coyotes will retire his jersey?  He's the best d-man they've ever had.

NHL lockouts are like the purge.

Horrible for entertainment purposes?


#2616211 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

All Burke needed to do after saying all that was rip off his tie, strut around and elbow drop 4 times to the floor while yelling Woooooooooooooooooo....


#2615295 Jets re-sign Anthony Peluso for only 675.000 AAV (2 years)

Ok thanks. I thought I was back in 1987 again.


#2615204 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

How does a player acquire stupid speed? Does a team pay more for this? Can young players go to stupid speed schools in the summer?


Nah, you go to school to get smart speed. There are a number of ways to get stupid speed.. like watching speed, on speed, while speeding.

I just don't see it.  I don't know why.  I just don't have that gut feeling about those guys.  Then again, I'm not a scout.  

 

Maybe it's my "pessimism bleeding through".  Please don't make me post pictures of Nietzsche and George Costanza again.  

 

There have got to be better icons for your school of thought than those two.  Maybe David Hume? 

 

Regardless of their views on skepticism, I'd be disinclined to associate myself with a syphilitic nihilist and a whiny, self serving, New Yorker.

9 points in 107 career games.  He does one thing well, punch.  Those guys are useless in the modern NHL.  He's so valuable he didn't play a single minute in the playoffs and only averaged 5:52 a game in the 49 games he did play int he regular season.  So valuable he was a frequent healthy scratch.

 

 

Doesn't exactly scream "best fourth liner." But hey, fights are exciting.

One if not currently the best 4 liner in the game what a bargain. Big touch, workhorse and will drop the gloves against anybody. Winnipeg is already a big team but Peluso adds some much needed protection, Backes and Reeves weren't running around as much after Peluso wanted to talk to them.

Guess it's safe to say Winnipeg, Blues are now having the toughest 4 lines in the league...good luck trying to run the stars against them.

Love this signing

Gee, maybe one of these teams will make it out of the first round next year.

Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

Stylish *puts on bow tie*

Hella stylish *straps on fanny pack*

Wicked stylish *slides on Blue Blockers*

Too sexy for everything *strokes toupee*

ROFL.
I know you're joking, but the sun glasses he was wearing may have been blue blockers.

I remember getting guff from you for saying people like him are the reason Canadians are stereotyped as being fifteen years behind american trends.
Ha.
I laughed hysterically hard at him.
It was like he belonged in a night at the Roxbury.

I'd drink a couple sodas with that guy.

I'll always remember the clip of him putting on a clip on bow tie while talking about how stylish he is.
