#2314467 Ryan Suter agrees to 13-year, $98-mil deal with Wild

Posted by frankgrimes on 04 July 2012 - 11:31 AM

Congrats to the wild, no ill feelings for both all the best.

For us: stay pat and push it to the max for Getzlaf and Weber next year and stay the damn away from Carle and Seminn.

Btw: Kenny did what he could and people want him faired? Grow a pair seriously

Congatulation to everyone who called this


#2313968 Suter Watch: Decision today, down to Wings/Wild

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 July 2012 - 07:50 PM

I just know yzerman or lidstrom wouldn't pull this


These two also wouldn't swear in every second word or calling out players for taking their time. Its not a crime to take time and trying to get the best possible contract.

Wow people are still getting angry at players for taking their time? How would you feel if you have 25 job offers with some exceptional ones? Personally I would take all my time to ask my wife, family, friends and agents about the pro/cons of either city, the team, coach and trying to phone a couple of players how it is to play for my destinated team and then go through the list.

Let them take their time, I am almost everyone of us would do the same.


#2313243 Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

Posted by frankgrimes on 02 July 2012 - 08:00 PM

Well let's give them some time. People basically have to keep in mind, such decisions are affecting families, friends and all that too.

I get a feeling both want to play for the same team if so, this would be good for us, but it's just that speculation. People taking days off just for some millionaire decision only have themselves to blame.

As much as I'd love Suter coming my life wont change either way, so lets cool down a bit and hope for the best.

There is really no need to calkl them out for taking such a signing seriously.

Should they go to Pittsburgh it means Letang and Malkin avaiable next year, not to bad!


#2312988 Jiri Hudler signs with Calgary, 4 years, $4m/year

Posted by frankgrimes on 02 July 2012 - 03:27 PM

Good luck Jiri thanks for your services, nothing but the best.

All of a sudden I love the Sam signing now *g*


#2312675 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by frankgrimes on 02 July 2012 - 09:54 AM

Well Prust for 2.5 or Tootoo for 1.9 I guess I would have chosen Prust. Sure, Tootoo can fight a little but he in no way a much needed enforcer.

Guess we'll have to wait and see an okayish signing.

Prust us please Kenny :-)


#2310830 St. James: Wings have inquired about Rick Nash

Posted by frankgrimes on 28 June 2012 - 06:00 PM

As much as I would love seeing him in Red White Howson can keep his dreams, one of the dumbest GMs ever.


#2310812 G Quick signs 10-year extension with Kings

Posted by frankgrimes on 28 June 2012 - 04:58 PM

Another steal Quck 10 years and only 5.8 cap hit thats less than Brzygalov is making *lol*


#2310396 2012 Lockout Watch

Posted by frankgrimes on 27 June 2012 - 11:29 AM

Sure it were both, but the owners celebrated like they "won" and well they got *everything* in the CBA.

Now they are saying it's not good enough anymore? Give me a break.

Fehr already said the players would be willing to accept status quo. This to screams another lockout > owners fault.


#2309417 Red Wings 2012 5th round selection- Mike McKee

Posted by frankgrimes on 24 June 2012 - 04:12 AM

I love love love love love this pick, finally we are getting someone who will put the fear in the opponents soon enough.


#2308611 We Need to Get Tougher to Play Against

Posted by frankgrimes on 22 June 2012 - 02:59 AM

Finally the management gets it its a relief seeing Nil and especially Holland stating, what we as fans have been saying for years now. My ideal bottom 6 forward would be a guy like Bolland. I am glad, we do have cap space signing guys like Scott, Prust, Konopka and maybe Macintyre (doubt Pitts trades with us though), would easily make us one of the toughest teams in the league. Mess with Zetterberg? Good luck next shift against Scott :pokey:


I know its just a dream but think about that off season:
skill: Parise and/or Suter:
toughness: Konopka, Prust, Scottt and Macintyre

2 big problems fixed in one season now thats a retool!


Nil saying that this draft isn't as strong as they hoped means, we can take some risks and draft physical guys who may or may not pan out.


#2307781 Exit interview with legendary Red Wing Nicklas Lidstrom

Posted by frankgrimes on 18 June 2012 - 02:28 AM

Here you are sitting with a guy worth 7 Norris Trophies, 12 Times All Star, 4 Stanley Cups and a in my mind top 3 All Time defenseman and he wants the Wikipedia page containing at first his work ethic including how he came ready to play every game - you can't get more humble than that. I gonna miss this player so much, just pure class...a perfect human.

Will have a hard time not chocking when they raise his number.

I want to do something special with my Lidström jersey any ideas? Thought about buying a glossy red-white border and a nice swedish flag as a background?


#2307678 If we fail to reload with top UFAs we should?

Posted by frankgrimes on 17 June 2012 - 04:01 AM

I know everyone is high on Parise and Suter, but lets assume we dont get them...the drop off is huge so wouldnt it be better to start the youth movemen? Next years UFA class is extremely loaded so I would prefer that even if our PO streak would come to an end ! Thoughts?
