I would like one of the Schenn brothers, Luke has great size and is a steady stay at home defenseman while Brayden would fix the search for a young center.

If players want to go they will do so, period. Especially the Russian players, if the midget says "you don't go" they are going to tell hiim f*** you if you don't take us back after the olympics we are going to play in the KHL and making more money there...which then would piss off the owner = hotwater for the commissioner.

#2478124 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by frankgrimes on 28 January 2014 - 01:04 PM

High end talent, nothing more, nothing less.


We don't need depth or role players, we've got plenty of talented kids to give us depth.


We need another high quality top-6 forward and a high quality top-4 dman.  Neither is likely to be available in FA, but like last summer there may be someone available via trade.  Kenny missed out on Ryan, Seguin, Ericsson and Edler last summer.  If anyone of that level of quality is available again he needs to be prepared to let some of our assets go in order to get them.


Nill just robbed Chiarelli plain and simple I doubt the Wings could have offered would Dallas did.

For me it's also a pride thing, we shouldn't lose against this joke of a ***** team that can't even pay for a scoreboard god can't wait to see them in Quebec city Tatar Sheahan Nyquist amazing love these three play

#2477313 Sammy Waived

Long time coming, this guy never should have returned here. After what he did to avoid being bought out in the off season I doubt he retires. Just wish he'd realize the dream is over and have some class and call it a career right now. That'd be the most help he'd provide this team since he signed.


Would you say no to 3 m for basically free ? I highly doubt it, Holland offered him a contract he signed it and the rest is history.


as for the rest of his life: all the best and enjoy retirement

#2477296 Z interviewed in Swedish paper

Posted by frankgrimes on 26 January 2014 - 02:29 PM

Superb job thank you very much for this, very well translated.


Z is all you want from a captain and he has learned from the best, what a humble and outstanding player we can be so thankful to have him and Pasha.

#2477294 Stadium Series, Vol. I - Ducks @ Kings (GDT)

Posted by frankgrimes on 26 January 2014 - 02:20 PM

All thing being equal other places may deserve teams more but all things are not equal and many of us do not know these difference in each market whether its ownership population location arena and keeping teams in America

I think your concern of cash cow could be valid but until I see a negative impact from a winter classic for the league I can't agree with it.

Anyway I wish our team played more like those teams you mentioned!


Like I said no worries here everyone is entitled to an opinion and like I said I'm happy if the people there enjoyed it. The point about not knowing the difference is true but I think Quebec City deserves a team and it would be another slamdunk just like Winnipeg.


Fully agreed I really love that style of play and as their success has shown it serves you incredible well.


California is the greatest state in the union and its not even close. Talking s*** about a place that youve never been to makes you look jealous and sad. If you enjoy shovelling snow off your driveway over playing volleyball on the beach, be my guest. Personally, im going to go enjoy my sunday afternoon brunch and mimosas on the patio in my shorts and flip flops. Dont forget your jackets today!


WTF nobody is talking s*** about California people are rightfully questioning how BEACHBALL and HOCKEY in the same area are fitting, why a red carpet is needed for a hockeygame. I love the experience of all 4 times of the year, winter being my favourite so thanks I enjoy shovelling snow and laying in front of the chimney when it's - 10 outthere.

#2476991 So when would you make a move and what type?

Posted by frankgrimes on 24 January 2014 - 10:52 PM

Green is owed over 6 mil next season then is a UFA

No to Green he is injury prone and very bad defensively.

#2476938 1/24 GDT: Canadiens 1 at Red Wings 4

Posted by frankgrimes on 24 January 2014 - 10:10 PM

Pietrangelo has been my favourite non-Wings Dman since his rookie season.  I like your whole list, a lot. 


As Subban goes between the legs down 2 goals.  No care in the world about getting a W, just looking flashy.  What a clown.

I'll keep Kronwall thanks.


Fully agreed Pietrangelo and Suter have been my non-Wings favourite for quite some time, both are excellent and don't give a s*** about looking flashy, they are just getting the job done in some impressive fashion.


To be fair, I think even a clown would care more about his teammates than this wannabe defender.

#2476926 1/24 GDT: Canadiens 1 at Red Wings 4

Posted by frankgrimes on 24 January 2014 - 10:03 PM

Not me.  Poor in the D zone, a complete D-bag in a bad way and he's gonna want probably 8 mil next year.


Agreed no need to have guys with an NBA, soccerlike attitude on a team thats trying to retool on the fly and loaded with classy guys. Personally I'm also not a fan of all the flashy offensive minded defenseman if they are Niedermayer Lidström like sure but otherwise I'd take guys like Pietrangelo, Suter or Keith Seabrook over any of them (maybe Weber being the exception).


Having said that this game is boring, nice that the Wings are leading but given both are original 6 teams there should be way more energy

Smurfs are above the Wings in the standings so this would be an opportunity to get some much needed points. But in the end it really depends on which team will show up.


Hopefully Subban and Eller are getting Kronwalled can't stand those two.

#2475289 Steve Ott to possibly be moved to Detroit.

Posted by frankgrimes on 22 January 2014 - 05:53 AM

A first round pick for an upcoming UFA who isn't a star wow. Buffalo really has to lower their expectations for Miller and Ott.


I would not do it for the simple fact: I think it could be the best draft position this team has had in some time. The guy will be an UFA so why not wait a few months and make him an offer them without paying a first rounder.

#2475054 Leaders need to be leaders

Posted by frankgrimes on 21 January 2014 - 04:46 AM

Assume for a second, how this team would be playing without Z and Pasha ? We wouldn't be talking about making the playoffs, we would be talking about a top 5 pick ( wouldn't mind that at all ).

Like others said, it's tough to blame individuals and to some extent even Babcock, Holland just hasn't given him much to work with and without the two remaining stars things would be very grim.

The only positive so far, is the game of Nyquist, Tatar, Danny Dekeyser and Sheahan. Helm just came back after another injury, so I wouldn't judge him too soon.

Z is trying his best, he obiously isn't an alltime great like St. Nick but none the less a great player and leader, sadly I think we won't be seeing him or Pasha with another cup :(
