#2619110 Nyquist Files For Arbitration

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on Today, 04:54 PM

Center this... Points at random inanimate objects

I've got your random inanimate object right here.
Grabs groin.
Realizes I just said I can't get it, up.
Makes Boston/philly sad.

I think were done here.
If we need to pay Nyquist more than we have left in capspace, I wonder if Quincey gets moved real quick.


#2619102 Landon Ferraro re-signs with a 1 year deal

Its a two way contract, so we can send him down.


#2619044 Preliminary Red Wings Training Camp Roster

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on Yesterday, 08:17 PM

But but we needed a defenseman.....

Yeahhh..but everyone who was saying we needed a defenseman pretty much agreed there wasn't a defenseman with high enough upside to take over svech at that point.

Damn was that beautiful though.

Svechnikovs goal in the shootout after the prospects scrimmage was insane.

His hands are quick as hell and his body control is crazy.
He's 22 in white.
The third shooter in this video right after lil Bert.

Effin beautiful.


#2619005 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on Yesterday, 02:34 PM

^ Not true.John Tortorella was ranked LEAST likely to play for and Mike Babcock was ranked SMARTEST NHL coach by a poll done by ESPN with 50 NHL players. 
 
Players like Caps coach Bruce Boudreau and Pens Dan Bylsma (each received 16 percent). But they love the Wings' Mike Babcock (22 percent). When asked about the last coach they'd want to play for, Rangers coach John Tortorella took the dubious title (18 percent). "He's always yelling and calling out guys in the media," says one Western Conference wing.

The whole "Babcock must not be drawing attention" rumor started when Holland failed to land Suter and Parise. Always easy to point fingers at the coach when s*** goes down the drain. That's why the Maple Leafs have been a great soap opera to watch for me.  
 
Edit - That same poll showed that players voted the Red Wings as the Best NHL franchise. 60% of the votes. 

I never understood that narrative, Suter&parise went to minny because they wanted to play together, every time someone brings up suter and/or parise as evidence that we can't attract free agents I get a bit annoyed.

Also.
I like that last part.


#2619003 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on Yesterday, 02:30 PM

He would insult a baby for not being tough enough

Well, Babies do have glass jaws bro.


And that weird reset button on top of their heads.

So let me get this straight, you think a 9% difference in Shootout percentage over a third shooter makes a guy worth trading for? Please say yes.

The difference in cap hit is surely worth the minimal lower point production, and huge raise in so%.
Oh.

Wait.


#2618945 Depth chart for RW/Griffins

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 03 July 2015 - 08:24 PM

Ericsson gets too much flak.
He'll never be the best #2 guy in the league, but he's solid.
I think Last year was a bit of a write off because of his hand/finger injury.

Anytime he gets brought up by other fans, they rave about him... the hardest part about trading him would be him waiving the Ntc(that I'm not 100% sure he has, I'm just assuming)
He's a top four defenseman on practically every team in the league, if we make a move to where he ends up on the bottom pair playing next to a kid, we'd have a great defensive committee.

I'm real curious to see how things shake out, it does seem like a trade is almost a necessity at this point.

Quincey was one of our best d-men last season, him and Dekeyser were a really, really good second pair.


#2618804 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

The disney.com love is strong  :lol:

Oops.
Hey man, if he continues to progress like he did last season, hell become a franchise center.
:lol:


#2618739 St. Louis announces retirement at age 40

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 02 July 2015 - 02:40 PM

The biggest thing I loved about him was how small he was. He didn't look scared to go into the corners with someone.

Heart of a lion, body of a peewee kid on steroids.


#2618737 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 02 July 2015 - 02:10 PM

I feel like if 91 goes up, then 13 and 40 kind of have to go up.
And if they retire those, 16 will go up...
That just seems like a hole hell of a lot of numbers out of circulation.


#2618732 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 02 July 2015 - 01:41 PM

Blash said he likes what smith and kindl can potentially bring and wants to see what they can do, so I have a feeling the kids will be in grand rapids.

And if the coaching staff wants to play those two, then quinceys gonna be sitting, which I don't see...
So you'd think someone has to be moved.


#2618633 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

I think the real question is, if he takes 25, what does dlyark wear when he comes up?


#2618578 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 01 July 2015 - 08:57 PM

Holland was lying.
