#2534238 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by Ekmanc on 14 August 2014 - 11:21 AM

 

Its not like the guy scheduled a two week vacation to the moon and skipped free agency the last few years.  There's plenty of info that suggests he kicked a ton of tires, made several intriguing offers, and in most cases those players chose not to come here for various reasons.  He's not soley to blame for our recent downturn.  You don't lose people like Lidstrom, Rafalski, and Osgood and replace them all right away...in some cases you may never be able to replace talent like that.

But do you lose players like Lidström, Rafalski and Stuart over several years and still do absolutely nothing to bolster the defense?

 

We should thank our lucky stars that hometown DeKeyser fell into Holland's lap or our defense would be an absolute s***fest.

You're right....being a GM is as easy as NHL 14 makes it out to be, what was I thinking?

It's real easy if you choose to do absolutely nothing.

 

Being an active GM on the other hand is incredibly hard.

Holland coming back from his obvious brain damage could be our big off season acquisition.

We're not getting anyone.




#2531926 Confused on the direction of this team going forward

Posted by Ekmanc on 13 July 2014 - 09:59 AM

I don't know what there is to be confused about, we have absolutely no direction...




#2531823 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Market value?  How dare he!

If I was him and I just saw what Quincey got I think I'd ask for 6+ million, the same goes for DeKeyser, no way I'd sign for less than KFQ if I'm him.

I wouldn't, Green sucks.


#2531153 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Ekmanc on 10 July 2014 - 04:19 PM

I have to wonder, doesn't Holland talk to Babcock and the other members of the team before signing off on s*** like this??? doesn't anyone actually speak up to stop this lunacy??????




#2531120 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

but can Frk be as happy? and will he remember the stairs? these are the real questions....

And is he as great at basketball?




#2530162 What's best for Mantha?

Posted by Ekmanc on 05 July 2014 - 08:38 PM

He definitely needs to start the season in GR and get used to playing against men. Considering how injury prone we are he will get not one but a couple of chances to be called up during the season and we can evaluate further after that but it wouldn't surprise me if he needs this entire season in the AHL before he's ready.




#2529999 When will we know about Alfie? (Legwand signed w. Sens)

Posted by Ekmanc on 04 July 2014 - 04:55 PM

no Alfredsson...i'd rather see Mantha.

Alfie was second in points last season despite missing games and Mantha simply is not ready, he's been playing with kids his entire career.




#2529563 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by Ekmanc on 02 July 2014 - 04:31 PM

Wow, it's amazing to think just because we didn't sign an over priced UFA (the Niskanen deal is horrible),

We did sign a terribly overpriced UFA  by the name of Quincey...

 

Also our defensive corps as a whole sucks, we will go nowhere in the playoffs with the current lineup healthy or otherwise.

Doesn't matter if we make the playoffs, we're going nowhere with this s***ty defense corps.




#2529339 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by Ekmanc on 02 July 2014 - 08:34 AM

This really makes Holland seem like a panicking idiot with no plan.

 

I would looooooove to hear Babcock's thoughts on this situation.

How did KH not get Tatar and Dekeyser re:up'ed today?

I'm guessing they don't see Detroit as a top destination...
