#2429532 Ilya Kovalchuk announces retirement

Posted by wingedominance13 on 11 July 2013 - 02:49 PM

Yea Capgeek has it at 250K, which is almost negligible in the long term. When he retires they won't have to pay him anything so for a team that was not financially well off, this is probably best... but holy crap they are gonna suck. If people didn't watch the devils at all they wouldn't realize how much kovalchuk actually does and how valuable he actually is. Hard to really contemplate this in its totality at the moment.


Seriously he played like 27 min a night. Double shifted all the time.

Never looks bad for the organization when two of the three were wings


#2426496 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Posted by wingedominance13 on 05 July 2013 - 10:52 AM

Love this signing. He still puts up about 20 goals and its a 1 yr deal. Forces the kids to earn their top six minutes, while not taking away a roster spot for them (only from sammy and bert). Good insurance if brunner walks. Low risk with a potential high reward. Hard to hate this, unless you are just looking to hate on Holland for not breaking the bank of this absurd FA class. Not saying Holland has been perfect (not even close) but he hasn't been brazen and dumb either, just consistent. 




#2426320 Wings in on Alfredsson

Posted by wingedominance13 on 05 July 2013 - 09:10 AM


Now this is interesting.
 
@RealKyper: Early indication this morn is Alfredsson #Senators doesn't look very good at all and a real possibly he may move. #RedWings frontrunners
 
Not a huge fan of this.


I'm actually kind of excited about this. While he's not in his prime and we could you a bigger threat. A short contract with alfie could allow a nice buffer while the young guns come into their own. We still need one more acquisition though


#2425081 Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Posted by wingedominance13 on 02 July 2013 - 08:33 PM

"Part of what influences the Wings as they prepare for this coming season is knowing they’ll have three young players pushing for spots in 2014-15, when Tomas Jurco, Riley Sheahan and Landon Ferraro are all expected to be ready for the NHL"

This is what makes me ok with not getting vinyl or making a big move.


#2423501 Mike Smith re-signs with PHX. 6 yrs @ $5.6 mill year w/ NTC

Posted by wingedominance13 on 30 June 2013 - 06:35 AM

I thought the point of the lockout was to eliminate overpaying for players. Especially in small market teams...


#2421778 Hypothetical - Crosby soon to be a Wing. Who do you give up?

Posted by wingedominance13 on 24 June 2013 - 02:31 PM

I'd quit and make a public statement about the disarray or the ownership

You sir, for pointing this out, are my new favorite poster. Much thanks. 




#2408800 Should we bring Tootoo in for game 4?

Posted by wingedominance13 on 21 May 2013 - 09:32 AM

No. We need Cleary he's pissing them off immensely. We need all our fourth line. Pk masters. Our third line is dominant. So that leaves Abby fil franzen or pav or z. Soo no. I love toots. But Abby Cleary smith big rig will enforce next game. Q will stay out of it because of his jaw. Hence not dropping the gloves hen getting manhandled after the whistle last game. Maybe he's not as dumb as he looks.


#2407847 TSN Feature on Kronwall

Posted by wingedominance13 on 20 May 2013 - 06:13 PM

The best part of this feature is the fact that Kronner acknowledges that when he gets hit himself it is typically his fault for being in a bad position. I think the majority of the time it is the hitee's fault for having their head down or being situationally unaware. Except for the few yahoo's in the league who head shot people on the reg.

#2386346 The Race for Eight: Blue Jackets, Stars, Wings

Posted by wingedominance13 on 18 April 2013 - 07:51 AM

Z has to be hurt though he has no speed his groin is probably much worse then he is letting on. He's the only one I'm giving an excuse for however.
