#2580663 Pulkkinen sent back to GR

Cement hands?  You mean Helm who has 13 goals, 6th on the team, or Abdelkader who has 17, 4th on the team?  Both are better than one dimensional Pulkkinen.

#2580251 Franzen on IR

Posted by DickieDunn on 09 March 2015 - 06:15 PM

Last report I saw said he's had 10 concussions in his career. That's a ton. He probably should retire, but it's his call. It also said he might be skating but he's a long way from playing and still has frequent head aches.

Toronto is like the KC Royals but fans think they're the Yankees.


#2579667 Nyquist's RFA Status

Posted by DickieDunn on 07 March 2015 - 10:50 AM

If he signs a one year deal he'd be RFA again.  There is no reason for him to accept a one year deal though, and I doubt Detroit would want to do that either.  If they do and he has another big year, his salary would go up.  Nyquist and his agent will want 2 years, so he can be a UFA as soon as possible, Detroit will push for longer term, and I think he'll end up signing for 4-5 years at $5 mil per.

I have been friends with a guy that lives in Toronto for a few years, I game with him a lot on Xbox live. He's in his mid 30's, been a Leafs fan for as long as he can remember as he was raised into it. He's die hard, he watches 50+ games per season, and I don't understand how he has done this for his entire life. 

 

I really feel for him sometimes, when being able to dump Clarkson at the deadline was a victory for the team and made him excessively happy, it makes me stop and appreciate how good we really have it here as Wings fans. 

 

The mounting frustrations, being a fan for 30 years and never seeing a cup raised, bad contract after bad contract, the fans that have been there for dozens of years and still call themselves Maple Leafs fans, yeah I feel like they really do deserve better. 

 

They really are the Lions of the NHL

They should trade everyone in the offseason so they can go full M1-A1 Abrams next year.  I wonder if they could get the #1 or 2 overall for Nyquist, Tatar, and Dekeyser, plus a couple more guys?

#2579114 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

No roster limits. Kindl doesn't need to be waived.


#2579042 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by DickieDunn on 05 March 2015 - 07:22 PM

Unless he wants to rotate guys out to rest a bit there's no reason for him to play


 
Why do you think that?

Because he's not as good as the vets and it's dumb to play a lesser player because he shoots right

From what I've seen, the people who start screaming loudest about this stuff are usually guilty.
