#2434575 Franzen: "I am not a goal scorer"

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 September 2013 - 10:57 AM

The problem is that if Franzen isn't scoring goals, he doesn't bring anything else to the team.  

 

He needs to be more aggressive offensively and always look to shoot first.  That doesn't always seem to be the case.  We've seen him go on streaks where he's as good as anyone in the league at scoring goals.  When he doesn't do it consistently, it appears it's because of him having a lazy work ethic.

 

The converse argument is when people state that he produces at the pay level he's currently at.  I guess that's true.  But that doesn't mean it's OK for a guy to be lazier and underachieve a bit.

I guess one thing that's interesting is didn't Lecavalier sign for 5 years @ $22.5 mill? I think he's only 3 years older than Weiss, and much bigger.

Congrats on keeping to your plan of making the team bigger, younger,  and increasing scoring by signing a 5'11 guy who got .24 ppg last year to a 4.9 5 year deal that will take a roster spot from one of the kids going forward.

 

Holland sure is doing a great job.  Good show old boy. 

 

What a s***ty, s***ty, s***ty job he has done the last three years. If Jim Nill was the reason we draft well, this team is going to be defunct in five years.

trust me we over spent its a week ufa class like you said .... waste of money and for 5 years .... ouch

 

 

4.9 is a steal in a weak FA class when teams want to overspend.

Dude need some tissues for the tears or what? Given what's available it's a good signing

 

 

thats the problem ... just because its ufa day doesnt mean we gotta sign players just for the sake of signing players , were gonna f***en regret this signing down the road 100% certain

Personally I was hoping for Grabovski but Weiss brings a lot to the table as well. And will be a very nice fit for our system. Nice job Kenny atta boy




#2427066 who's on their way out of Detroit

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 05 July 2013 - 01:38 PM

Hopefully Samuelsson and Emmerton. I'd like to keep Eaves and Tootoo.




#2426234 Grabovski Bought Out

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 05 July 2013 - 12:15 AM

IMHO Grabovski > Weiss




#2425036 Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Posted by MileHighWingsGuy on 02 July 2013 - 07:38 PM

Vinny at 4.5 was too steep but Cleary at $3 is OK.... got it Kenny

So were in the process of giving a guy that skates like he has cement in his skates, gets knocked over by a breeze, and in general is on the WAY decline of his career 3 yrs and 3 mil per? 

But for some reason can't give vinny 4.5 for 5 years and a role that we actually NEED!!

 

Man good thing Holland has a hard on for his vets or the wings could actually win a few more cups.

I may be one of the biggest Cleary fans out there, but if he gets re-signed for 3yrs at 3mil I'll be pretty pissed. A 2yr deal for 2.5 or less would've been all I'd like to see. I hope Helene is a bit off base. The Brunner # is good.

If Cleary gets 3 mill I think I will officially rage. The guy should be in the 1.5-2mill TOPS. Any more than that and Kenny is throwing money down the toilet. Although I must re-state we should NOT be re-signing him to ANY contract

2.5 is a great deal for us in regard to Brunner, I don't care if he wants 6 years. I thought he'd come in closer to 3, maybe even 3.5 to keep him...

But 3 per for Cleary?! WTF?!


#2423619 2013 NHL Entry Draft Discussion

Posted by uk_redwing on 30 June 2013 - 11:27 AM

Trades start any time or they have to be officially done with Bettman announcements? Would like to see some movement today. I think most GMs are waiting to make trades before dumping players via buyout. If they're all here in one room today, seems like the time. Or they could just wait two days and then do it *sigh*

 

"We have a trade to announce..."

 

Hate that little gerbil whenever he scurries up to say anything.




#2423000 Letang Turns Down 8x$7m

This looks like "Jordan Staal Part II".  Quite frankly I'm surprised Shero made that kind of offer.  Does he not understand that one of the contributing factors to the Pens failures is the fact that they have no depth?  Crosby makes almost $9 mil per year, Malkin is over $9 mil, Fleury, Martin and Neal are all making $5 mil.  And now you want to blow another $7 mil on a one dimensional defenseman?  I think they're lucky he rejected the deal.
