#2639224 Dreger: Ryan Johanson is in play

Posted by FlashyG on 25 November 2015 - 03:20 AM

Not only will the Wings be unlikely to part with the assets required to get him, I don't think they have the salary cap space to take his 4 Million cap hit without shedding nearly equal salary going to Columbus




#2636787 11/13 GDT | Sharks @ Red Wings | 7:30 PM ET | FSD

Posted by FlashyG on 13 November 2015 - 12:43 PM

I'm home from Toronto this weekend and am going to the game... really dissapointed that mrazek isn't playing I was really hoping he would. I think it shows blash has more faith in mrazek to get us a win on the 2nd half of back to backs.

Either way I am very lucky the magic man happens to be back tonight. I'm calling a magic goal. 4 to 2 wings!

 

I doubt Blashill has any issues with confidence in either of his goalies. They've swapped back and forth for almost every game this season.

 

They also have almost identical numbers.

#2621381 Wings lose scout to leafs

Posted by FlashyG on 23 July 2015 - 11:07 PM

I'm not sure what losing a scout has to do with Babcock. His involvement with scouts would be minimal at best.

 

Shanahan would be the one who poached him, but I think it has more to do with him getting a promotion he was never going to get in Detroit. The Wings have Hakan as their director of European Scouting and I'm sure Shanahan was well aware that Vuori has spent the past few years learning from him. Who better to choose to become your own director of European Scouting?




#2621380 Pulkkinen re-signs.... 1 year deal

Posted by FlashyG on 23 July 2015 - 10:44 PM

There is nothing wrong with that, but some people are acting like he's some kind of goal scoring God who will score 40+ a year and anyone who disagrees is a hater.

 

Negativity and Pulkamania, 2 things that don't go together brother.

NHL...Whatcha gonna do when the Pulkster runs wild on you?




#2620816 Stan Bowman (CHI) on CBA troubles

Posted by FlashyG on 18 July 2015 - 02:25 AM

 

Nope sadly a yahoo link and their site is just....https://ca.sports.ya...-212225823.html

 

I'm just saying it's super-teams that people even not interested in the sport are going to know about, the more super-teams the better and even better if those teams can keep their talent.

 

The Kings are far from being done, they'll get rid of the Voynov contract sign someone else to replace him yeah the Richards thing (rightfully) is going to hurt them but given their age group LA's run is far from over. Wouldn't be the least surprised if the win it all this year.

Canadian ratings are down, but that has more to due with Rogers being awful than the product being bad.

 

Ratings in the US are soaring 




#2620784 Lovable Dan Cleary update thread

Posted by FlashyG on 17 July 2015 - 03:14 PM

Sometimes its easy to forget that while Dan Cleary the player has long since outlived his usefulness as a Detroit Red Wing, that Dan Cleary the man is actually a great person and a wonderful ambassador for not just the Red Wings but professional athletes in general. That story above my post is a good reminder of that.

 

In no way do I want him taking a roster spot up on the team anymore, but I'll always respect how he turned his career around with the Wings and his contributions to the team over the years.

#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.




#2619182 Nyquist Files For Arbitration

Posted by FlashyG on 06 July 2015 - 04:05 AM

The mistake many making here is assuming that this case even gets before an arbitrator.

 

Neither side wants that, no player wants to hear his employer explain all his shortcomings in an effort to cut his salary. Nyquist has excellent regular season production but he'd be roasted on his awful playoff numbers to this point. Still I think he'd get a better offer by going to arbitration than what I think he's going to sign before it gets there.

 

I expect him to take a deal in the 3.75 to 4.25 million range, similar to Kadri's but perhaps a little longer.

#2618533 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Posted by FlashyG on 01 July 2015 - 07:39 PM

He managed to find us a RHD we've been looking for since Rafalski retired, he addressed our lack of center depth after buying out Weiss. More importantly he did both without tying us to either player long term so even if they don't work out, it won't be a disaster.

 

To top if off he and Mr. Ilitch already worked out a pretty awesome new dance routine with our new additions.
