Wait. He is 19? I thought they had to be 25 to be in NHL? That must be a red wing only rule.

At least some teams play their rookies   <_<

#2440184 So....did Cleary just take Tatar's spot?

Posted by rrasco on 01 October 2013 - 01:09 PM

Seriously......if you had to choose between Cleary and Tatar.....would you really choose Cleary?  Really?  Really?  Cleary is not the worst forward in the league but he shouldn't be playing over Tatar.  And if you want to get technical, I'd prefer Cleary over Sammy but it was Cleary's signing THIS year that put Tatar on the bench tomorrow....no matter how you cut it.  According to Babs that's just life.  According to me that's just bulls***.

There is no eye roll big enough for this entire situation. I just can't.

f*** you Dan Cleary just leave already!  If Ken Holland resigns Cleary, he immediately should be fired, I'm not exaggerating.

Cleary got hold of it and gave it away.

Good for him.
It's pathetic that people think that just because someone is famous they have the right to constantly harass them online. This guy didnt send one tweet to biz he sent like 15 in an hour.
I guess it doesn't count as online bullying if the guy is rich though. Good to know.
Don't start something that you can't handle. Well done Paul.

Holland did well this offseason, but he's also handcuffed himself with the NTC's he was handing out like candy in previous years.

Can't believe we are even talking about this guy

I'd rather have Grabovski

#2425632 How much is too much?

Posted by The Axe on 03 July 2013 - 09:09 PM

I dont want to hear it anymore. Its an assinine argument to discuss millions of dollars and whos worth what.

Proof: We had Bertuzzi, Samuelsson, Tootoo, and White RIDING THE FREAKING PINE IN THE PLAYOFFS. That's 8.5 MILLION DOLLARS doing nothing for us. NOTHING. Isn't it obvious NOW that our GM is an imbecil? So let's keep our discussions to "who benefits us more" instead of "what can we afford". Im sorry for the capgeek thread. Thats obviously not a helpful tool, as our buffoon GM only looks for loyalty points and not value.

"5 million is too steep for Lecavalier."

You had White and Sammy on the bench, so how's that?

"6 million is too steep for Horton."

You had White, Sammy, and Tootoo on the bench, so how's that?"

Is there anyone on this planet that believes healthy Bertuzzi/Sammuelsson/White/Tootoo playing in place of Nyquist/Eaves/Colo/Miller gets us by the Ducks and Blackhawks? Hell no.

So we must all come to the logical conclusion - money/salary cap is being poorly utilized. The problem is NOT that we dont have enough.

That's a great GM right there!

#2425226 Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Posted by ShanahanMan on 03 July 2013 - 04:03 AM


Yes, yes they did actually.  Every single player on this roster was drafted, signed or traded for by Holland.  Every one of the coaches.  Most of the scouting staff and front office.  From top to bottom, on and off the ice, this entire organisation is Ken Holland's handiwork.



Exactly what I was thinking too.  We're going to have 17 forwards and 7 defencemen (and the 7th is Lashoff!)  I've got to imagine Sammy is playing the injury card, he's only got to have an ouchy till Friday and he's safe from a compliance buyout.  Of course he's still not safe from an ordinary buyout - will cost us $1M against the cap, and I hope Holland does it if he is dicking around with us.  Hell, I hope Holland does it anyway.  Maybe he'll send him down to GR to clear a spot.


So, with our 26 man roster, and too many forwards, I keep hoping beyond hope that Holland has a trade in the works for a realgud D-man.  The buying out of Colo makes no sense otherwise, he was a decent player with a low cap hit and only 1 year left.


If not, I'm not quite ready to jump off the Holland bandwagon just yet, but I'm becoming more and more sympathetic to some of the bashing.


Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't most of our scouts and front office hired from Pre-Holland/Jimmy Devellano days? You know, the guy who personally assembled the team that got us our 1997 and 1998 cups? 


And before you say, "well, Holland got us Zetts and Dats", they were both noticed and handpicked by our amazing scout Håkan Andersson (one of the few remaining saving graces for our team in management) and Jim Nill.


So basically, Holland has done little if anything for our team. 


Meh, Hull and Robitaille were good signings.
