Wait wait wait. Now are you telling me that he looked at that amazing up and coming talent pool of the mighty Minnesota Wild and thought the Wings were a better option?? This does not make sense according to a picture painted for us by a certain poster...
Interesting signing if he does in fact sign. Not really sure how I feel about it. He's definitley got some skills but it'll be interesting to see how he converts to the NHL. As for the size thing...if he is in fact Hudlers replacement, we've added size lol!
He'll be a 3rd/4th liner if anything, inwhich he should be on Helms wing... as a third line with helm centering and brunner on his right wing with that beaut of a shot and speed... SPEED OVERLOAD BOYS. But seriously, Helmer should have a hell of a season with Brunner... I think.
I only hope she realizes what a treasure she has in him. Deep down inside, this guy has a very romantic soul. And he is the real deal. When he was in Moscow with his daughter, she couldn't stop gushing about him, and he gave her a kiss on the top of her head like any proud father. He really is a treasure.
Yeah the divorce nonsense is not true...Although, I do wonder if it is an added stress on Pavel that his wife and child live in Russia. You can dismiss things like that, but if any decent man was in that situation...it would impact him. Probably even more so as he (and his child) gets older.
Anyway, Svetlana Datsyuk seems pretty cool. I know that she and Pavel have been together way before he got famous playing hockey. So, none of that "I'm a hockey star so I married a hot babe!" crap from Pavel
No, there was indeed speculation on at least one poster's part that claimed they heard Pavel and Svetlana had quietly divorced. I have no idea where they got that from, but I remember it as well. I for one am happy to see this.
Honestly, I was hoping for a more of a $1.5M Cap hit, I know he is a solid player and is good at what he does, but I just don't think he earned a raise over twice what he was payed last season...I guess we will see in 4 years if he is outplaying this $2.1M. It's not that he isn't worth it, it's just needed cap space to make this team better... If Holland overpays Quincey, I will have an ulcer... I hope he keeps Abby at a modest pay...I am hoping for $1.1, but after this, I am seeing $1.8M... sorry guys, not being negative, it's just needed cap space, or maybe sign the big UFA's first and then pay your guys a bit of a inflated contract, thats all I am saying...of course after re-signing Bertuzzi at too much money, I should have seen this coming...
NO QUINCEY!!! NO HUDLER!!! Please God! Please Holland! PLEASE!!!!
EDIT: Also, do you now realize what it's going to take to re-sign Filppula? He will get at least $5M...that is the problem here, (and not just Holland) keep overpaying and the NHL will go belly up... I honestly see a point where the guys making $500,000 today will be at $2M within a couple of years...Hey Minny, go ahead a give Parise the world, ruin the NHL (again.)
Absolutely. I had planned on 150 per ticket, but it looks like the 190 is where I'd like to be. I have no issue with that whatsoever. Hey, if the car payment is late, who cares? It's the Winter Classic with Detroit and Toronto.
It's not so much that I want to be the grammar police, but I can't help but point out the irony of you bumblef****** your way through a supposed insult about my education. However, if you want to get back to the subject at hand and show me how a college kid with 111 NCAA games under his belt has somehow PROVEN that he's better than Kindl who has about the same number of games played in the National Hockey League, I'd be glad to humor you.
First off, one of the greatest human beings to ever play the game, thanks Nick for all the memories you've given us over the years!
This is what Ken Holland gets for having no Plan B in place for when Nick ever decided to call it quits. Even IF they sign Suter...they still need another 2 or 3 top notch D-Men that are nowhere to be found. People like Kindl, Ericsson, & Quincey sure as hell aren't gonna improve any to get the job done...ugh...and people thought our D-Core looked awful last year?...just wait.
How does losing lidstrom and signing suter make us so much more terrible... Believe it or not but suter is an upgrade to lidstrom
