#2528637 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2014 - 04:12 PM

Maybe nobody likes to play for babs. Everyone that comes here drastically underperforms and has to change their game around completely. Especially an offensive defensemen

In all honesty. In order to start fresh and chime in a new era I think babs and holland both should go. Holland getting replaced by Nill would have been the best situation.

#2525959 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by joesuffP on 26 June 2014 - 08:08 PM

What does that even mean lol

Franzen and holland bashing is mindless spam. Throw their names in a lame joke that has nothing to do with what is being discussed. There's about eight of them on each page of every thread

#2525666 Alfie informs Wings he wants to return

The market isn't there to acquire "top line winger" or "top pairing puck moving defensemen". This board can't even put a name to these players they want so bad because it simply isn't feasible. I'm predicting we see a trade made in the future of a can't miss perfect deal and you will all be glad we didn't sell the farm for whatever's available

You may agree with some opinions, find some lacking or even ludicrous.  If that's the case, there's no need to comment.  Just move on.
As long as someone is discussing hockey, it's not irrelevant.  You might want to look up the meaning of the word. 

Irrelevant. Pointless based on their lack of knowledge. Not to be taken seriously

Sheesh we should have signed alfie after we got a 50 goal winger and a #1 defensemen. It's all his fault that we won't now.

Some of you guys want to sign Vanek. Your opinion on the sport of hockey is irrelevant

#2524460 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by joesuffP on 18 June 2014 - 03:55 PM

I'd keep smith with kronwall. Much more dynamic first pairing and good for his development. I think kronwall is very underrated and Ericsson is overrated. Top pairing will be fine with anyone playing with kronwall. And by fine I mean competent compared to the rest of our defensive unit

#2524427 Compliance buyout expected to be used on Tootoo

Posted by joesuffP on 18 June 2014 - 01:04 PM

Ahh the old showing up to play homage that LGW bestows on players that apparently Babcock hasn't noticed. We're a much worse team without Franzen. I don't get why every player gets a pass on last season when comparing stats (datsyuk, zetterberg) because of our miserable injury plagued season except for Franzen. You don't buy out legitimate top 6 players that have good contracts.

LGW: "we need two more top 6 players. Let's buy out Franzen and just buy 3 more. It's been really easy to acquire talent lately"

#2524423 Compliance buyout expected to be used on Tootoo

Tootoo can't play in the NHL. Franzen will score 20+ goals.... Which one to buy out? Head scratcher

#2524351 Wings sign Tomas Nosek to 2 year entry level deal

Posted by joesuffP on 17 June 2014 - 11:45 PM

I have no problem with signing as many of these no risk entry level deals as they can

#2523156 The Franzen Hate.

Franzen is actually quite good defensively

#2519103 Now some gritty forwards.

would love hanzal

#2518427 Wings will buy out Tootoo, not Franzen.

People with sense knew this

#2517463 A plea to Holland.

Posted by joesuffP on 26 April 2014 - 10:43 PM

Lashoff was signed in 2008 as an undrafted minor leaguer.  He's 23 years old and has 100 NHL games in his career.  
I don't know that he'll ever become a solid bottom pairing guy, but I wouldn't include him with White, Quincey and Cola.   He was basically someone Holland picked up for chump change to see if he'd become an NHL defenseman. 

Still holland hasn't made a single good deal in 3 years. He appears to have no plan for the future for our forwards and has already failed our future blue line. Plus he has overpaid our homegrown guys. Getting over market value to stay with the team that drafted you and ensuring a mediocre squad for years to come. If we didn't have good scouting and drafting we would be the buffalo sabres.

#2517418 A plea to Holland.

Posted by joesuffP on 26 April 2014 - 08:29 PM

Holland has signed Ian White, Kyle Quincey, Carlo Coliacovo, Brian Lashoff since Lidstrom, Rafalski and Stuart have left. That's sad. Just a complete failure. Who is he going to sign once Franzen, Datsyuk and Zetterberg leave. This really scares me. Holland hasn't made a single good deal in 3 years

#2515789 The Franzen Hate.

Franzen has 11 playoff points the last 3 years. Scored 1 goal the last 3 months of the year until our eventual elimination. Those 5 goals in 7 games is a streak he should have gone on 4-5 times in a year not once.

Gus has 23 goals in 28 games. Now that's a real streak that got us into the playoffs, not Franzen's 5 goals in February
