#2676687 Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 27 May 2016 - 02:49 PM

I think when you've had 2 40 goal seasons at the OHL level, it means you've developed to the top of the league. I think he should definitely be in the AHL next year and take the next step. These articles say his shortcomings are that he needs to work on foot speed and bulk up. Get him with our pro trainers.

That means we will probably never see him in a wings lineup


Right. Cause we've NEVER had that type of player on the wings

Scores? Hits? Plays aggressively instead of getting swatted off the puck? 
 
A combination we need!
 
Great sign. 


No way. Holland sucks!! Amirite

I get the feeling he was somebody the brass had their eyes on to draft in the 4th round but San Jose beat them to it.

I like it!


This quote below that video is great:

 

 

 

My buddy(a Sharks fan) just told me about this and added: "Anytime you make a trade with the Wings for a prospect, you know you lost that trade." Im still laughing.



#2676536 Datsyuk - someone who works for JLA told me he's sold his house

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 25 May 2016 - 06:48 PM

If Kovalchuk is making $10,000,000 - Datsyuk will be making more than $5,000,000 - and this is why:

 

My very good friend played in the KHL for 2 years and was paid more than he would have made in the AHL/NHL on an entry level contract)... His bonuses were structured to pay him per goal, per assist, per regular season win, and per playoff win - and when all was said and done he actually tripled his base salary at the end of post-season...Apparently every player has an incentive plan that doesn't get compared in the dressing room, meaning it also isn't compared in the newspaper... Unfortunately, this league has also been prone to paying North Americans less than what they were promised - and good luck fighting the mob in a foreign country. Point Being: Don't trust any financial data the KHL put's into the press.

 

So yes, Datsyuk's salary might be close to what his NHL salary would have been next season ($5,000,000) - but he is also the KHL's highest profile player now (captain of the world championship/Olympic team) and will incur bonuses that far and away exceed this figure. I'm sure he will also do better with endorsements as well. Last year, he made $7,000,000 and maybe the $2,000,000 decrease was close enough to KHL money to say forget it... Which makes me question his character. 

Kovy's contract was made when the league was at a high for financial success and before the implication of a hard Salary cap (it was a soft cap). KHL President is now lowering the cap by 50 mill rubles (764,377 USD) each year 2015-2017. There's a reason Radulov is leaving.

 

Add to that the fact that Datsyuk will be 38 while Kovy was in his prime, and I think you'd be wise not take Kovy as a comparable.

 

Datsyuk's already a national hero and a big star in Russia. If he wanted Russian endorsements I'm sure he already has them. I don't see why playing in the KHL would make much of a difference. Anyway, it does take him away from US sports endorsements which are much larger because it's a much bigger market.

 

A new bit of info I found in a Detroit Free Press article, is that Pav also missed out on a 2 million dollars of this past year's salary by not fulfilling his contract. (in the notes at the bottom)

 

http://www.freep.com...wings/84913168/

 

So if you think he's going to the KHL for more money, then his contract for next year has to be more than 7.5 million. 

 

I don't see any evidence that suggests we mistrust his own explanation of the situation in the Albom article.




#2676540 Datsyuk - someone who works for JLA told me he's sold his house

Posted by Echolalia on 25 May 2016 - 08:08 PM

Yeah I don't see any reason to be suspicious of his decision to leave either. He's already earned a ton of money, won a ton of awards, has been over here for a decade and a half and is getting older and more worn down, meanwhile his daughter is getting older without him in Russia, and he told us years ago he wants to finish his career off playing back at home in Russia. This is his chance to do that before his body can't keep up. It's also his chance to be with his daughter and watch her finish growing up. And he has nothing left to prove over here.

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 25 May 2016 - 01:21 PM

Datsyuk was slated to make 5.5 million next year. I highly doubt he'll make more next year in the KHL

 

It's hard to find info about KHL contracts, but here's an article from 2013 that shows the highest salaries as:

 

Kovy: 10.3 mill US

Radulov: 7.5 mill

Zinovyev: 4.7 mill 

 

http://www.sports.ru.../154502348.html

 

As you can see, after the first 2 it drops off significantly.

 

And that's before the ruble collapse:

 

http://www.nationalp...uble-collapse-2

 

and the cuts to the KHL salary cap where the KHL president aims to limit salaries to 14.5 million per team. So Datsyuk's red wings salary would be more than a 3rd of a team's payroll:

apparently they're at 17 mill per team now and they'll cut the cap each year until 17-18.

#2676400 ECF : Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 May 2016 - 09:19 PM

I honestly think PIT was looking for an excuse to get Fleury in there and game 4 was a perfect scenario...down big, get him some in game experience without risking much of anything.

 

HBK at game 5 to see the HBK line.

 

Would be awesome if he superkicks Crosby after the game and takes off his jersey to reveal a Lightning jersey underneath.  

 

:yowza:

To be completely honest, the more I think about it, I think Datsyuk going is a blessing in disguise.

 

We are not going to win the cup this year, our goal needs to be to complete the re-build and become contenders by 2018. If Datsyuk leaving gives us the ability to trade his contract and use that cap space to trade for or sign someone who can be apart of our core moving forward, that is a good thing!

 

This is not a slight on Datsyuk, the guy is one of the greatest Red Wings off all time, and watching him over the last 14+ years has been a privilege. But, in a re-build you need to look long term and Datsyuk regardless of whether he plays this year or not, is not apart of those long term plans. 

 

I look forward to seeing him get his jersey retired at the new building.




#2676367 ECF : Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by krsmith17 on 22 May 2016 - 07:05 AM

I don't understand the argument here... Are you seriously saying that Kane is a better hockey player than Crosby, based on this one season? Like was mentioned, Crosby had one of the slowest starts of his career and still finished over a point per game. Your going to use career points per game as one of your arguments? Kane has 1.01 pts/g in the regular season and 0.98 pts/g in the playoffs. Crosby has 1.33 pts/g in the regular season and 1.14 pts/g in the playoffs. Crosby is also a much better all around player. The only edge I would give Kane over Crosby in their individual games is stick handling, everything else Crosby is far superior.

Sure Kane has three Cups to Crosby's one, but that's also a team stat, and Crosby very well could add another in a few weeks. Crosby also has two Olympic gold medals to Kane's one silver. But if you want to talk individual awards, it's not even close. Kane has won the Calder in 2008, Conn Smythe in 2013 and Art Ross this season. Crosby was the runner up to Ovechkin for the Calder in 2006, and has won Rocket Richard in 2010, Art Ross in 2007 / 2014, Lester B. Pearson in 2007 / 2013 / 2014, Hart in 2007 / 2014, Mark Messier in 2007 / 2010, among many other awards and accolades.

Crosby is regarded as THE best player in the world by most, Kane is top 5-10 by most... He would be outside of my top 5, possibly even 10, but that's my personal opinion...

I love Crosby as a player but he still needs to grow up emotionally.  He's getting there albeit slowly.

Larkin is going to be a stud.

I have to keep telling myself he's only 19.

What a game Larkin's playing vs Canada. 2 assists for Larkin so far Can 2-3 USA 2nd period. Though, I think He, Larkin, tipped the puck in Matthews shot for the 1st goal. 


And the media will still make it all about Matthews.
