#2320447 With cap space to clear, do Flyers become a Wings trade partner?

Posted by The Greek on 19 July 2012 - 03:10 PM

a million is actually more than sufficient for injury replacements. Sure, most teams would like more than that for security but until last year a lot of teams carried a million or less in previous seasons.


Pronger's LTIR relief has no affect on the Weber deal.


LTIR cap relief constraint is only for during the season. It has nothing to do with the Weber deal. Plus, Pronger is all but done. He also will not officially retire until the duration of his contract is up. The Flyers will gladly pay him the money so they can have the cap space. Pronger's money will not affect their cap hit.

Also, the Flyers are cap compliant as of today WITH Pronger's money on the books. Once they put Pronger on LTIR then they have plenty of room to re-sign Voracek, drop Lilja and be done.

This Weber deal does NOT ensure the Flyers move a defenseman. I'm not saying they won't do it but they definitely do not have to do it.

Also, for those thinking PHI is going to be out of the Ryan sweepstakes I think you're mistaken. Once Pronger is on LTIR PHi could use one of the d-men everyone is talking about and some of the depth at forward as pieces to get Ryan.




It sucks because it's true. Holmgrem has proven that he is aggressive enough to do just as you said.


#2317696 PK Subban for Flippula and Tatar?

I doubt that this will happen, but it would be awesome. For those of you who don't want subban because he's cocky, that's jus ridiculous. His on ice production is what matters, nothing else. Patrick eaves is cocky as hell. He walks into restaurants and says "hey, I'm Patrick eaves the hockey player". So unless you have legitimate complaints about subban's play, give it a rest.

What's so bad about subban that has everyone freaking out? The dude is gritty, talented, and young.


#2314425 Ryan Suter agrees to 13-year, $98-mil deal with Wild

Posted by The Greek on 04 July 2012 - 11:22 AM

Those of you on the verge of a rage stroke should take solace in the fact that he is going to be in hockey purgatory for the rest of his career. Do not take this as an indictment on the wings, that would be a signing with the pens. This is a blessing in disguise. Suter is very talented but not worth the commitment we were ready to make. I would rather be successful due to homegrown talent anyway, not because we hired a bunch of mercenaries. Now everyone go the f*** outside and enjoy your holiday.


#2303957 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

Thanks for the memories. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise. He'll be alongside his sons for their development over the next few years. With a bit luck we sign one or both of them and get to enjoy another 20+ years of a lidstrom on the roster.

Agreed. These premadonnas are a diamond dozen. It's a doggy dog world out there so these kids shouldn't be taking stuff like this for granite.


Awesome

Stupid fans ... Chanting wings suck instead of cheering their team.. f****** rednecks

Inbreeding is proven to result in aggressive unintelligent offspring.

#2291447 WCQF Game Four GDT : Predators 3 at Red Wings 1

I wish LGW was a sports bar. It would be hilarious to see a bunch of grown ass men acting like this in the real world. The things some of you guys say about the players is ridiculous. They're human beings playing a game which has no bearing on areas of your life aside from your fandom. I have read instances of people wishing injury upon players, which is totally f***ed. If i were a psychiatrist or a gastroenterologist (for your ulcers) I would plaster my ads all over this site.

The way this series has gone it would be in our best interest to play like s*** in the next game. The team that has Carried lost every game so far. Quite frustrating

Others won't like what you said but, I LOVE it!!!! :clap:


f*** 'em

and we're winning


#2273685 3/24 GDT : Hurricanes 4 at Red Wings 5

Posted by The Greek on 24 March 2012 - 08:20 PM

I can't imagine why fans would respond positively when the team is playing well. It's mind boggling really.


It was more of a comment on the massive shift in opinion. People were acting like we're never going to win a game again. I haven't been here long, but I can guess that you guys were ready to start slitting your wrists when we went on that 6 game losing streak. I can only imagine how you guys were filled with immeasurable glee during that 23 game home winning streak. You guys are so bipolar it's crazy. One day Babcock and Holland are geniuses the next they're the worst at their respective jobs. One day Franzen is Mr. clutch the next he's trade bait. One day Zetterberg is the most valuable player on the team the next he's a lazy piece of s***. We're fans of one of the greatest sports franchises in history, grow a pair and act like it. If you truly believe that the wings are a great team it will become a lot easier to deal with adversity.

Lol, someone negged me. The truth hurts, eh? Bunch of spazzes.


#2273651 3/24 GDT : Hurricanes 4 at Red Wings 5

You guys are hilarious. I love seeing everyone jump back on the red wings' metaphorical dick once things improve. Many of you are the very definition of bandwagoners. I would love to see what some of you are like in real life. Some of your' comments display a complete lack of character. How do you all handle adversity in the real world? It's a hockey game, a form of entertainment, and guess what. Nothing you do has any affect on the outcome, it's asinine to freak out over such things.


#2268082 Kronwall Destroys Voracek

Posted by The Greek on 07 March 2012 - 12:14 PM

What would have happened to Kronwall if there was no instigator rule?

I assume he would have been mugged and pummeled by Flyers players.


This is something that really pisses me off. I hate how in the NHL as of late, if you make a big legal hit someone expects you do drop the gloves.
