Lol we gotta find the DRG writer and send this to him. 

 

Found him on Twitter - Jeff Moss

And apparently this writer had the cops called on him by the Detroit Lions. Outstanding.

Darren Helm third line center is solid, but overpaid by close to a million a year. Darren Helm scoring line winger sucks.


#2683457 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 18 July 2016 - 11:10 PM

I live about 45 minutes from Nashville, for the fans and the community, be it a seemingly small one, I hope he does well here and it draws more fans to the sport. It may even get me out to my first Preds game, I've lived here 3 years, maybe it's about time. 

 

I'm personally a big fan of the guy, he has a big heart, a big personality, and was overwhelmingly charitable for his community when playing in Montreal. He's good for the sport, plain and simple. I hope he's well received in Tennessee. 




#2683178 Glendening signs 4-year, $1.8m AAV extension

Posted by kickazz on 14 July 2016 - 01:22 PM

This team hasn't gotten past the 1st round in three years and we're resigning the same players until the year 2021. 

 

All of Helm, Glendog, Abdelkader, Ericsson contracts are way too long. (can't blame anyone for Ericsson contract- he was expected to be a good top 4 D-man)

 

Kenny is doing bad guys. Still not a hater but legitimately calling him out. 

 

It's not Glendog or maybe even his individual contract that's a huge problem. It's the sum of all parts. Right now the team is built around Helm, Ericsson, Glendog, Abdelkader, Nielsen for the next 4-5 years. Yikes...

#2683169 Glendening signs 4-year, $1.8m AAV extension

Posted by krsmith17 on 14 July 2016 - 12:22 PM

The thing that bothers me the most about this signing is that for whatever reason it needed to be done this offseason... Why the urgency to lock up a 4th line plug to a 4 year contract when he still has a year remaining on his contract? Why not see what happens in another full season and worry about re-signing him next off-season if you really feel the need to? Glendening wasn't going anywhere, so why the rush? Were you really afraid that his value was going to skyrocket above $1.8M? Not likely...

 

I like Glendening, he works his a** off every shift of every game, and I don't doubt he's a great guy to have in the locker room, especially to help the kids get in shape. But none of that makes up for the on ice product, and the on-ice product is bad... He's good at face-offs? Great, but what good is gaining possession if you're just going to lose it right away? He's good at blocking shots? He damn well better be, because he never has the puck...




#2682655 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

<3 ya Dats. Been watching his highlights the past couple of days actually. Been pretty down about it - even though thought I was over it. 




#2680655 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Posted by Dabura on 30 June 2016 - 03:55 PM

Some of Weber's attributes sure can't be replaced. If you haven't watched Subban play much, you are in for a treat. He's usually regarded a top 5 defenseman in the league. By no means a bad trade for you, over a few years rather quite the opposite.

 

The great thing is Subban's going to sell the s*** out of NHL hockey to the people of Nashville and in the States. I think it's a match made in heaven. They're going to adore him there. He's going to become what he deserves to be, which is one of The Names in pro sports.

 

For anyone who doesn't like Subban...

#2682064 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by DatsyukianDekes on 03 July 2016 - 11:58 AM

When he gets injured and misses half the season, I'm blaming you.

 

If*

 

then you can blame me  :ph34r:




#2681983 Steve Ott signs 1 year, $800k deal with Detroit

Posted by Jesusberg on 02 July 2016 - 03:18 PM

I'm sorry, did they sign Ott or McCarty?

#2681960 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Posted by Echolalia on 02 July 2016 - 01:39 PM

What a joke of signing Kenny needs to go freaking idiot why are we signing D's retreads that's why we will never win anything what about Jimmy's contract no one is gonna take that abomination


You must be a man or postmenopausal because you are...




...missing some periods



Yeeeaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!

#2681632 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 July 2016 - 03:13 PM

Let's not get personal guys, not worth suspension.

Most folks are just angry at the Helm deal. Once we lost Stamkos we all knew it was going to be a patchwork day.

I like Nielsen and Vanek. They'll score here and will help the PP and the shootout.

Look at it this way, with only $9.9M left after LTIR and with DD and Mrazek left to sign, NO KFQ!!!!

Why does it matter? Pasha gets to play where his heart is, in his hometowm country in front of all his friends, family while enjoying the last 2 years of his glorious career. I'm for one just happy for him and will for sure try to find some Russian league (super league KHL?) games with him.

Excellent deal. I thought he was losing the 1st round pick entirely, but he only traded down to 20th. 

 

Love the deal. Can't see how anyone would hate it. This will be a LeftWinger approval.
