#2529086 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 July 2014 - 07:56 PM

 

 

 

It's not like Holland hasn't tried to get help on the blueline. We were spurned by several guys this offseason and the Suter situation is well documented. We have 5 guys in the AHL who could all play in the NHL in the next two years, granted they won't all play for us. It takes time to "give the team a new identity." You can't do that over night in the salary cap era unless you get a guy like Crosby in the draft. The identity is starting to change with Goose, Tats, Sheahan, Jurco all coming up. I'd be surprised if we didn't end up seeing one of the young Dmen play at least 35-40 games this season. The change is happening, but it just isn't going to happen overnight. 

 

How many players have to pass on Detroit, how many times do we have to be "in the mix" and end up empty handed? Trying isn't good enough anymore. When you miss out on one big name ufa, that's one thing, then a couple years later, not having fixed the problem via trade or free agency, instead using useless plugs a la Quincey, you miss out on a whole lot of big time upgrades? disgraceful, unacceptable... #fireholland

#2529007 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

I defended Holland last summer, the trade deadline, and now... FED UP

 

get rid of this sack of useless potatoes. He, Quincey and Cleary can go to a beach together and never return. Seriously, not only did he sign the guy NOBODY wanted back, but he gave him a raise to boot, and he was already way overpaid before. Missed out on every free agent?!? EVERY ONE?!? not a single player in the nhl wants to go to Detroit? I don't care what anyone says, Jim was the better choice for GM, look at the things he has done in dallas

@asktheduffer: Speculation that Niskanen's camp may have overestimated his bargaining power and priced himself out of market. Could be back in play.

 

Best agent in the business, I recall a former wing named Brunner who had a similar agent do a similar thing... wait a minute

Thanks kip


#2527551 It's too bad about us having Weiss...

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 July 2014 - 08:39 AM

60 points for a second center is very good. We can't have a team full of superstars anymore.


#2527547 It's too bad about us having Weiss...

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 July 2014 - 08:35 AM

Even if he put up 60 points and 25 goals?

Oh god. Why does free agency feel like forever from now? Why do I have to work? This is all terrible

#2527330 UFA day looking up

Posted by Euro_Twins on 30 June 2014 - 06:22 PM

How and when to rush the puck, freewheel and create in the offensive zone. Surely you don't think Kronwall is better than Boyle at that.

 

he claimed kronwall could teach smith anything boyle could, and that smith and kronwall are very similar players. he then said smith and boyle were opposites (which contradicts the kronwall can teach smith anything boyle can argument) and followed up with a bold statement that boyle would get less than 20 points... it's like we've never had offensive dmen. Kronwall can put up 50 points on our "terrible" offensive team, but boyle can't put up 20 points. This is clearly a hate towards any potential moves Holland could make befoe we even see what happens and how it works out.




#2527310 Spezza Requests Trade

Posted by Euro_Twins on 30 June 2014 - 05:07 PM

Keep in mind Spezza and Ryan are both UFA's after this season and OTT is broke. Well their owner is, thus why they are looking to dump salary. We could very easily put together a deal for both and resign both of them-which should be agreed to ahead of time. 


two things, that deal would cost way to much, and I doubt Ottawa would deal with us anyway.

And secondly, if I recall correctly Holland didn't want Ryan last year. I could be mistaken on that though.
