#2682031 Steve Ott signs 1 year, $800k deal with Detroit

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 July 2016 - 04:52 AM

Should I PM you before making a post next time to ask if it's appropriate? Gtfooh.

This is about Steve Ott, not McCarthy not Howe...also what are you still doing here you've said you are going to bump ship on the Leafs bandwagon yesterday?


#2681864 Who should get A?

Posted by frankgrimes on 02 July 2016 - 05:48 AM

Abby or Danny D. both should be here for a long time and seem to be born leaders

Larkin is too young he will be captain one day but no need to put any extra pressure on him

FINALLY some grit and physicality, like it a lot




#2681600 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

Posted by frankgrimes on 01 July 2016 - 02:58 PM

3 coaches have given up on this guy, the Wild bought him out for a reason.

 

Didn't want him but of course the Wings sign him at the plus side it's only for 1 year so if it doesn't work out they can just let him walk.

 

so much for becoming heavier and tougher to play against lol




#2681487 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

This is just insane. Holland seems to get worse every single year. 
 
Can anyone remember a decent free agent signing within the last 6 years? I can only think of Hossa. 
 
Oh and he just LOVES locking people past their prime to massive contracts and then being screwed when they can no longer play at an elite level. 6 year contract for a 32 year old? Are you kidding me?

Thanks for this gem, frank.  You've just cemented your legacy as LGW's Don Cherry.

Nice, I take that as a positive because I'm a huge fan of the guy.

Sadly out on the only player I wanted, will be interesting to see what Toronto is offering

Matt would be the best signing today and something to look forward to even If this team is terrible

It's embarrassing that people do t think of this. They just assume the players want to come to Detroit.

No what's embarrassing is not accepting the cold hard truth which is a real rebuild. I would have been fine with doing nothing today because there isn't anyone who can help this team. More and more players don't want to come here they'd rather sign in Buffalo, Edmonton if this isn't a clear indication I don't know what is.

With the prices being paid today maybe someone would have traded for Z or Kronwall


#2681268 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by frankgrimes on 01 July 2016 - 11:57 AM

Nelson is finishing not a starting piece this team is nowhere near contention ...why not stay pat ? Seems like cap space needs to be spent no matter what ? Which is so dumb there's going to be another UFA day, trade deadline and a draft ...yeah Wings didn't get Stamkos in fact he wasn't even interested how about using that fact as a hint that a rebuild is needed instead of spending money on non number one centers and magically hope some late pick will turn into the next Z.

Meanwhile Looch who is much younger, brings something the Wings lack signs with Edmonton.

Backes in Boston, Okposo with Buffalo the east got heavier to play against but if course the Wings are going with a guy who may or may not help getting them to the usual first round exit. Jesus Christ

So what's the center position now?

Nielson
Larkin
Z or AA ?

What's the endgame here? Pissing Mr Is money away and hope for a draft wonder? This team will need to be bottom out in order to get up again...yeah the Wings are an original 6 team which had tons of success but top guys are shying away from signing here may be that should give Holland something to think about


#2680937 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Posted by frankgrimes on 01 July 2016 - 09:44 AM

If they aren't going to try and change it up and get someone in there thats going to possibly make us better then why not just get some big dumb fighting bruiser. At least we can have some kind of entertainment with him. Geez. We went from "oh man maybe holland has turned it around to ah s*** there he is..the old holland.

John Scott , Patrick Bourdelaus and Ryan Reeves would mean a lot of entertainment for a fraction of the cap

Radulov is a punk, but he's also a fantastic player.

He is, always was and always will be a Pos. he is the exact opposite of Weber.

Radulov doesn't bring anything to the table can't believe they've signed him over Brouwer, Backes or Looooch

lolol I thought Therrien wanted character and grit? He brings in the exact opposite.
radulov lol can't wait for the term...


#2680889 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

huge fan of Helm but this is too much for too long.

I love how now that Stamkos is gone people are sinking to the likes of washed up players... Only to ***** about it once we get them.

No more washed up players for the sake of fan hindsight whining.

 

Looch isn't washed up but overall I agree with you. Trust me I'd love Backes, Okposo as one of the finishing pieces longterm but the Wings aren't there yet and giving either one more than 6 years scares me.




#2680323 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Posted by frankgrimes on 29 June 2016 - 05:05 PM

It's not the least bit scary, have you seen his stats? The other team has the puck all the time when he's on the ice.

And that's when he played with Josi...

 

I don't need to I know what Weber can and brings to the table. Leadership bar none (hence him winning the Messier award), physicality, offense, defense and a shot straight out of a laser canon. Oh and btw. the guy had 20 goals. Yeah he wasn't that good in the playoffs but if this years playoffs are a standard for anything even mr. perfect Duncan Keith would be on the "decline"
