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

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 July 2014 - 07:08 PM

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...

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

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

#2527418 Ehrhoff or Niskanen

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.

What could Boyle teach Smith that Kronwall can't?  Kronwall is the better player.  He's had more success.  Plays a gritty/offensive game (the way we'd like Smith to play).  And he's a lefty, like Smith.  Boyle and Smith have very little in common aside from the fact that neither are likely to score 20 pts. for the Red Wings next year (sorry, I had to).   
 
Like I've said before, you can justify it however you like, but adding mediocre players to a mediocre team just leaves you mediocre. 


Just because you want to be negative doesn't negate facts. Boyle has never ever gotten less than 20 points. Even in the lockout season. Might as well say Datsyuk will get less than 40

Kronwall - Boyle

Ehrhoff - Ericsson

Smith - DeKeyser
