#2531257 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by BadgerBob on 10 July 2014 - 05:40 PM

Hey since Kenny is in the spirit of throwing large sums of money away, maybe I can get him to pay off my student loans for me. After this I'm convinced Kenny is locked in the basement of JLA and Matt Millen is running the team. Thank god the Packers are awesome otherwise this would be a looooong winter for me!

You people are all way too serous about this. Take a step back from your keyboard and breath.


The positive of this is it a 1 year deal we have a ton of cap space and looks like no way of using it.


If he performs like he has prior to the last couple of years you will all be in love with this move come season end.


He is a veteran player who can be trusted by the coach and knows the system, you are all very well aware of how fragile this team is so veteran leadership and depth at this price is a no brainer even if he does not play a game.


As for the GM I would like to see how some of the posters on this site would be able to pull off the NHL 2014 trades that some of you so desperately want. I can't imagine that it's that easy or you'd be a GM in this league by now.


Life long wings fan here who is a realistic person.


Chill out relax and enjoy the show!!!!

No one wants to hear it Kenny.

I'm officially completely embarrassed of being a fan of this team. How can someone keep their job constantly signing such garbage players. Mr. I or one of his family members needs to pay attention to what the hell is going on here.

He's most likely gonna end up hurt or benched. Not the end of the world. I don't like it, but it's not like it's a multi year deal.


He is making more than Dany Heatley. That's enough to make me puke.

Sick of this. Get rid of Kenny and whoever else in charge that is okay with being mediocre. Bring back Nill and Yzerman and let them have whatever job titles they want. Unbelievable.

Worst signing of July 1st for sure.


No, KFQ at $4.25M/year was.

#2529024 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

I leave to go to the gym for an hour and a half and I come back to this s***?! What the hell is Kenny's problem? This guy is absolute trash and you give him a raise? I'd rather they just play the kids than sign this waste of space. Kenny needs to be fired. NOT PROMOTED. Promotions are for people who actually earn it by doing well in their previous position. I can't stand this anymore. I know I'm spoiled because I am only 25 and missed the dead wings years, but I've never been more embarrassed to say I'm a Wings fan. I wish I could be as horrible at my job as Kenny and Kyle here and not get fired, or better yet get a raise..must be nice.!

At what point does Babs call Kenny reminding him what he said at the end of the season? If this is how it's gonna be I don't blame Babcock, or anyone else (including core players) for wanting to leave.

Honestly, it might not be the worst thing ever to get Quincey back. 


You've obviously lost your mind. Rookies don't need to be paired with someone they're going to learn bad habits from. I'd rather have two kids up than Quincey.

#2527443 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by BadgerBob on 30 June 2014 - 10:09 PM


I wonder if it's possible they each are told the other has interest in playing with the Wings would make them want to come here. You know, more talent give them a better chance at winning the cup. Doubtful, but just a thought. Really hoping for Niskanen first and foremost though.

#2527405 UFA day looking up

Posted by BadgerBob on 30 June 2014 - 09:02 PM

Pittsburgh would rofl.


I'd be pissed. Seeing wimpy kiddy baby whiner in a Wings jersey would make me sick, I don't care how many points he puts up. Plus the guy disappears in the playoffs.

The Blues need scoring depth, badly. Maybe Nyquist would interest them? Mantha?


:shock: No. Way.

#2521730 Seattle looking to join NHL?

Posted by BadgerBob on 25 May 2014 - 06:42 PM

I think the Panthers should move before the NHL adds any more teams. They're always near the bottom in attendance and moving them to the west would even the conferences up.

I feel like next year is gonna be the Babcock sweepstakes, and half the teams in the league are going to be slinging offers. Babs will sign with a team and there will be a scramble for all the other coaches. It might actually be a really interesting offseason next year.


I'd like to see that happen, and then he actually ends up at Michigan. YOU CAN'T HAVE OUR BABCOCK!!

#2520963 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

why do some want Boyle? the guy is on the decline, he posted the worst +- on the Sharks D last year he'll be 38 by the start of the 

coming season and there's a reason that San Jose are letting him go, so why take on other teams not wanted?

Niskanen has had 2 good season's in his NHL stint. His first year in Dallas and his last one in Pittsburgh, which happens to be his contract year.

He's a R/H shot and fairly young at 27 with almost 500 reg games under his belt. He is not the #1 guy that the Wings seek. Id say a #2/3 at the 

most and we have those within the organisation.

Trading is the only way we'll get a #1 D guy this year and next years (2015) UFA list doesn't offer much either. I doubt very much that Kenny will

be looking at a trade for a big name player, but the guys that he should look at Weber, Keith, Pietrangelo, etc will be too dear for him. 

A vet player thats an upgrade on Quincey would be the way to go on a year maybe 2 at max deal and let the rookie's fight it out for the 6/7

spots. Id have no problem letting Marchenko come up full time.

UFA's:  Tom Gilbert, Nikita Nikitin, Anton Stralman, and maybe Ron Hainsey would be 


Kronwall DeKeyser

Smith Nikitin

Ericsson Marchenko

Kindl/Lashoff whoever isnt traded.


You don't want Boyle, who in his worst year he still had more points than any of those guys at the bottom have ever had in their careers. Other than maybe Gilbert I wouldn't want any of those guys. Stralman has never played a full season and only came close once. The other guys don't put up much for points either. I'd rather go with kids if we're gonna have stats that low, at least they'd be cheaper. I just don't see how any of those guys would make us a better team. Niskanen may not be a number one but I'd rather have a bunch of 2's and 3's than a bunch of 3's and 4's.
