You'd think that being with a porn star would be like throwing a hot dog down a hallway, especially one who's been around ad long as Lisa Ann.


#2545617 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Posted by DickieDunn on 30 October 2014 - 06:26 PM


 
You going to call Holland and let him know because he keeps trying to sign UFA's?
 
What if Weiss retires? Was damaged goods when he signed? What are the long term cap repercussions, anyone know?


 
I'm not the cap-specialist on LGW, although I know there are a few of them here somewhere.


If he retires it comes off the books, but I don't see him walking away from that much money.


#2545502 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Just a sore groin, guys. These things tend to happen when you don't play for a long time. Remember when Helm finally came back and he went out with a sore groin almost instantly? Nothing to worry about as far as I'm concerned. This is basically the reason why he was sent to GR to begin with.


Took the words out of my mouth

The league does allow salary retention.
Up to %50. 


 
Was it upped to 50% with the new CBA? I thought it was less. In any case 50% still puts a limit on something that IMHO should not have one. If teams are willing to take the cap hit to trade a player, the league shouldn't care. 


If you keep that much what's the point of trading him?


#2544286 Kindl on the block

Wings aren't going to hand the net to Mrazek . and Smith is the only solid offensive d-man? Kronwall would like to say something about that.


#2543576 Myers close to become a wing?

Posted by DickieDunn on 23 October 2014 - 06:46 PM

If he didn't have that contract I'd be more interested. I don't care if he has a bunch of points, I don't see him that good in his own end, and I don't like d who are weak defensively. I also don't like that he's missed so much time the last 3 years. He's just too much of a gamble to trade a lot for him with all the young D the Wings have already.

Right now I think Myers is a bit better than Smith and Dekeyser.  I think that's going to change fairly soon though.  Given Myers' contract, I don't want him unless they're willing to take a ridiculously craptacular package in return, which they won't.

I don't want to move Larkin, certainly not for Myers. And most of the Wings d are offensive minded, the transition is off.

Filppula wanted out and I think TB will regret that deal. He's never had 2 back to back healthy productive seasons.

How the **** is that a low ball?


#2541458 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by DickieDunn on 16 October 2014 - 08:38 AM

Lots of goal scorers are. What's your point?


#2540337 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by DickieDunn on 12 October 2014 - 06:00 PM

How about Adam Larsson?  Healthy scratch to start the season.

 

Former #4 overall pick and just 21.  RH defenseman with some size.  And yeah he's a Swede...

 

That's what happens when you rush a kid.

 

I don't know why people want the Wings to trade for a young defenseman.  I'm all for moving Kindl, but they have Ouellet, Jensen, Marchenko, Sproul, and Backman already.




#2538654 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by DickieDunn on 06 October 2014 - 09:13 PM

Can Weiss be demoted? And at what gain?

 

it would save $925k against the cap, and give them a pissed off player who is signed for 3 more years.  Babcock just needs to bite the bullet and do what it takes to get him going.




#2538652 Will Cleary make the roster? (poll)

Posted by DickieDunn on 06 October 2014 - 09:11 PM

They won't leave him hanging for his bonus money.  He'll be on the active roster until he gets his 10 games in, then hopefully he "hurts" something and sits on LTIR the rest of the season.




#2538452 Callahan, Ferraro and Porter placed on Waivers

Posted by DickieDunn on 05 October 2014 - 01:20 PM

Callahan won't get claimed.  He had one fluke season where a bunch of pucks went in for him in the AHL.  He's not a scorer, he's not fast, he's not big, he's a projected 4th line agitator.  He also didn't look at all like an NHL player in the preseason.  Neither did Ferraro.
