#2621587 Free agents this off season

Posted by WingsAlways on 25 July 2015 - 07:00 PM

this is desrespek for the sport. Lol. If only Habs would have gotten Lucic. Would have been a pure comedy.


Yes we could watch him skate around punching himself and hooking himself in the cup.

Therrien's line will be something like this. "I am very disapoint. All the guys on the team are very very disapoint."

Iam sure Habs fans responded to Semin signing by screaming " merde ". Want to give you coach migraine headaches ? Sign Semin. Habs did a favor to other 29 teams by taking him of market.

Those saying that the travel is no big deal are clearly those who haven't had to travel. 

#2620556 New Ultra-Enhanced Video/Renderings of the Arena District

Posted by number9 on 14 July 2015 - 10:46 PM

Whether people believe in New arenas or not I think one thing is clear: if billionaires want new shiny state of the art and even above that arenas pay for them with your own money..Lord knows those guys have more than enough of it.

Personally I would go as far as calling it crime if politicians - who by all accounts should work on behalf of the people - agree to such ludicrous deals. There is no way that a new arena should lead to closure of much more important stuff like education facilities , libraries, hospitals.

I mean it's proven that the city is Alex's getting the short end of the stick here. As much as I admire all the things that the best owner in all of sports has done something like this is not something were I agree with him but I for sure understand that he had to stand up for his biggest project. The politicians on the other side should be on the hook with their own money and not the tax payers one.

So the right answer would be want a new arena pay for it with your own money, period. If that leads to a team threatening to leave call their bluff


I agree, however I don't blame the owner. The owner is operating in a system which allows him to conduct business like this. Why does he get to operate like this? because at the end of the day we allow it.


An owner worth billions can't afford a multi-million stadium? Doesn't make sense. I'd love to see our tax dollars not go to this arena, It's been shown that successful sports don't boost a city. Detroit should exhibit A in that department.


If people get mad about it... it will change. But for the most part we're all just excited to get a new arena. Arena combat was and is the glory of Rome.

#2619742 Wings‬ sign left wing Eric Tangradi

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 09 July 2015 - 12:13 AM

Who's to say that he doesn't make the fourth line or at least get a call up here and there? Even if he only gets 2 call ups I hope it's against Dallas and Ottawa .

Are people really pissed off about a depth signing probably around league minimum? Just be happy the Wings finally have a winger who has great size and will win some battles along the boards.

We have a few on here that think any sort of toughness or someone who will drop the gloves is worthless. Just ignore them. I still like watching big hits and fights. And I'm sure some others do as well. Not everyone wants pansy hockey.

#2619600 Over/Under for Larkin's time as a Red Wing in 15/16

Posted by Richdg on 08 July 2015 - 12:04 PM

Less than 20 even with injuries. he needs time to get bigger and stronger. As of today he is about 8th on the depth chart at C. So no need to rush him. let him grow and develop.

#2619543 Nyquist Files For Arbitration

Posted by FlashyG on 07 July 2015 - 11:03 PM

The sad part of Nyquist getting a new deal is that this will probably be the last year of him being a fan favorite, unless of course he significantly improves.


We as a fan base love guys who overproduce for their salary but when they get a salary that's more in line with their production we heap unrealistic expectations on them.

Gus could put up the exact same numbers he's put up the past 2 years and because he'd be making 4-5 million a season instead of his current .95 million a year it will be seen as not good enough.


If he has another couple playoffs like his first couple, he'll be in the doghouse with Franzen.

#2619523 Tarasenko re-signs with the Blues (60 mill/8 years)

Posted by wings87 on 07 July 2015 - 07:59 PM

I can see where you're coming from... but those contracts are what keep bringing about the lockouts, which it seems like were right back on track for the next one once this CBA expires.
So much so that people are laying out contracts preparing for the next one, like tarasenkos dropping to 5m for the year the cbas up.
Its all crazy.

You're right it's a crazy pointless system. Since after 2 lockouts, the cap is now over 70 mil. In several years we are ones again going to look for something to watch in the winter, while the owners jerk each other off.

#2619171 Nyquist Files For Arbitration

Posted by Vladinator16 on 05 July 2015 - 11:19 PM

Lol at people saying 3 or 3.5 million, no way he gets anything under 4.5. Back  to back near 30 goal seasons and back to back to back seasons of being one of the teams top scorers he's well worth 4.5+. We're lucky he's an RFA and not a UFA because there are teams out there that would offer 5+ easy. 


Everyone in this thread has come to accustomed to Kenny and his lowball "market value" offers, fact is good players get paid and Goose is a good player. 


Saad, age 22, 23G 29A 52 PTS - 6M 

O'Rielly, age 24, 17G 38A 55 PTS - 7.5M

Kadri, age 24, 18G 21A 39 PTS - 4.1M

Nyquist, age 25 27G 27A 54 PTS- ???


 O'Rielly and Saad being comparable to Gooses productivity and Kadri being slightly below Gooses productivity (Kadri's never scored more than 20) it's easy to say goose is a 4.5M+ player. 


If you had to go to Free Agency to replace Gooses productivity it's going to cost 5 Million plus for a near 30 goal 50+ points scorer.

#2618986 Voynov pleads "No Contest" to Domestic Violence Charge

Posted by ShereKhan on 04 July 2015 - 11:27 AM


Well I guess it depends on the animal. I'm pretty sure a dog could be helpful. It could like lead blind people around and stuff. But a Grizzly Bear doing community service? I guess you might be able to teach it some circus tricks, but I still wouldn't feel safe with them running around my neighborhood doing community service.


I don't see what this has to do with Voynov though. Last I checked he was a person.



Redondo Beach police officer: Voynov's wife had laceration over left eye, blood streaming, red marks on neck.



Officer: Voynov pushed wife to ground multiple times, kicked her repeatedly while on ground, chocked her three times.



Officer: Voynov pushed her into flat-screen TV where she cut her face.



At Voynov's home, the officer noted blood all over bedroom, including covering comforter and a bloody handprint on floor.



Nope. You're right. Not an animal. 

#2618801 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by dave989 on 02 July 2015 - 08:58 PM

Helm is needed for 3 on 3 this year. His speed should dominate in OT

I can't wait to watch some 3 on 3 OT.  :w00t:


I like the Richards signing because it adds a smart guy to the middle of the lineup and he played well for Chicago in the Cup Final. This is a vet signing that actually makes sense by Holland.

I'm so tired of how 'PC' this country has become...The whole Confederate battle flag is the most recent topic of 'PC'...The networks have stopped showing 'The Dukes Of Hazard'...Pathetic.
