I think this team is a lot better than it has looked so far, if nothing else than because of all the injuries.
I also think we will better next year than we are this year, especially now that we've seen how well the young guys are progressing. Even without signing a single free agent in the off season, this team gets better by shedding a lot of dead weight.
Call me crazy, but I actually like the direction the Wings are headed.
I'm right there with you, were transitioning kind of well given the amount of changes were going through, keep the playoff streak alive while retooling and the wings brass will be back in the conversations of the best front office ever.
but this is a doom and gloom thread.
Were in the wrong place.
His contract was signed after the new CBS was so we cant use our compliance buy out on him, and a regular buy out would stretch his cap hit for 8 yrs, at around $2m a year, aside from two years in the middle where it'll only count a bit under $1m.
There was a couple talks about us going after cammalleri, I came across a flames board talking about how jurco, sheahan, pulls, and jarnkrok werent worth him because they're all 3rd 4th liners in their system.
Which gave me a good laugh.
Someone has to go...I am not for NHL players in the Olympics, but what are we going to send 17 and 18 kids over there to get blown up? That would be like throwing your kid in front of a bullet to save your own life...
If we don't send players, the dickheads win. And I don't mean the Candians! I mean the terrorists. ( I am part Canadian BTW, so I can mess with my own heritage.)
If the countries don't go to Sochi, then the bad guys win, they successfully strongarm us into their plots of fear. The ONLY way to stamp out this garbage and garbage people in the world is to react with vengeance. I don't mean a ground war against them either. Not to turn this political, but they way the world and the United Nations pussyfoot around these assholes isn't getting the job done. If you attack us, you will be destroyed. PERIOD.
I am not saying FORCE these players and citizens to go, but let them choose, that is, in fact, the wonder of our nation, the right to choose. If you as an individual feel afraid or not then choose if you want to go or not. You cannot let these pigs win. That's right I called them pigs because that is what they are PIGS.
How stupid would they be to bomb Sochi, when all they would get in return is the likes of not only the USA on their bad side, but now the rest of the world! Last time I checked, Russia and China weren't too involved in the war on Terror, but bomb Sochi? IN Russia? Now you Al-Qaida dildos have the entire world against you, and there will be nobody to oppose the USA when they start bombing your ass. It's time to stamp out these cockroaches with nuclear weapons. If something happens and China and Russia get pissed off, guarantee it's over. The middle east will look like a parking lot, and I for one, encourage it! Bye Bye Al-Qaida...
I dont wanna be that guy to turn down your Toby Keith music, but not every terrorist attack is al quaida man.
I agree with you on multiple points.
I'm Just saying man.
No Datsyuk, no Zetterberg, no Franzen, maybe no Howard. I feel like someone needs to be fired.
Howard's backing up gus tonight, I read that jimmy expects to start Friday.
I kinda think we should throw Franzen on ltir, then call up Callahan....
But i dunno the severity of z, or Franzen, or when dats will be back, so it may be pointless.
But with the success our kids have had, is rather try another one that we need to figure out the future of playing than cleary.
Weber's hit isn't 14, it's 7.87. I'd take him in a second for that. Mantha, Jurco, Nyquist, or Tatar+Kindl+D prospect. A top 4 of Kronwall, Weber, Ericsson, and Dekeyser would be one of, I'd not the best, d units in the NHL.
Nothing like trading away all of our future assets for one guy.
Wed end up in the same exact spot as Nashville is now, and have nothing for when pav. Retires.
