#2625506 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by DickieDunn on 14 September 2015 - 10:29 PM

Cody Franson is as reliable as a rusted out 86 Geo Metro

#2623361 Worst Free Agent Signings Ever

Was this written by a Colorado fam who didn't know hockey existed before they moved from Quebec?

#2623161 Abdelkader entering contract year, possible $4M extension?

Posted by DickieDunn on 15 August 2015 - 10:37 AM

If Andelkader is on a 20 goal 40 point pave again, he deserves $4 mil.

#2622804 Line combos for 97, 98 Cups?

Ward once said that he thought his name was F--kward for awhile because Bowman always said things like F Ward, are you stupid?

#2622803 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, except VD. You bring that home.

#2622323 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Posted by DickieDunn on 05 August 2015 - 01:39 PM

What does that mean exactly? I'm not sure your post could be any more vague...
Do you not think that WiiM does a decent job with opinion pieces? or Red Wings coverage in general?
While I don't necessarily agree with the piece, I do think they do at least put some thought into their articles before posting them...
As far as Holland and this off-season goes I think he did a good job at tempering expectations through the media, while acquiring some pieces that should make a difference this season and surprisingly cutting ties with some mistakes/easy re-sign options that he would normally jump all over --  Weiss/Zidlicky.
His next "test" is going to be managing assets.  Which players stay? Which players go?
Do we move some vets to make room for younger players?
This is going to determine Holland's viability as an NHL GM going forward. 
Will we be able to continually "rebuild on the fly" through asset management or will we end up having to go the TANK IT route because we don't have the players or the prospects to make the moves necessary to continually reload year in and year out.

It means every wiim article I've ever read has been trash

Ferraro does everything Andersson does and skates better. Callahan does things Andersson doesn't. Keep them waive the marshmallow

Datsyuk and Franzem will both likely be out. There is room.

#2621394 Lou Lamoriello new GM of the Leafs

I see this working a well as an unsinkable ship and the best dirigible ever.

#2621233 Pulkkinen re-signs.... 1 year deal

Posted by DickieDunn on 22 July 2015 - 07:16 PM

I'm rooting for him obviously, but I just don't see it translating for Pulkkinen. I personally thought the Wings should have sold high on him while he was tearing up the AHL. I think he's very one dimensional and that one dimension can be taken away by bigger, stronger and faster competition in the NHL. 

Yes... Join the haters. We have cake.

#2620664 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by DickieDunn on 15 July 2015 - 07:10 PM

Anyone worrying about losing a guy like Andersson, Ferraro, or Callahan on waivers should find more important things to worry about. They're all dime a dozen players.

BM and Superman had a fight once, the loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of their pants.


He made Hello Kitty say goodbye


They once made BM toilet paper, but it failed because it wouldn't take crap from anybody

#2620367 Mitch Callahan signed 1-year - 600k

Posted by DickieDunn on 13 July 2015 - 12:22 PM

If anyone is in trouble it's Andersson. Coaches tend to stick with guys they know

Depth signing for the Griffs

#2619489 Free agents this off season

Posted by DickieDunn on 07 July 2015 - 04:36 PM

Lol.  You make the prospect of trading him sound like a personal vendetta.  I'd trade him for a top pair, 50 point, right shooting defenseman.  I've advocated as much.  If that's "no real reason" to trade him, then I don't mind being unreasonable. 

There's a difference between trading him for a good player and "he sucks get rid of him."
