#2469929 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

All that anger should be directed at Holland, not Cleary.   All Cleary does is bust his ass every game.

Chuckles, I bust my ass when I fall down too. :hysterical:

#2468419 Howard on U.S. Olympic Roster

The pickins must be awful slim for him to make that roster. 

#2449575 Franzen believes hes playing well.

Posted by nuts2u on 01 November 2013 - 08:14 PM

It's an interesting theory and his play certainly warranted it at times. 


But why would they protect Franzen's feelings like that when Babcock doesn't hesitate to bench and call out anyone?  Unless it's more to protect Holland and management from the ire of fans because Babs is benching a guy they have signed for 6 more seasons?


I hope he was benched.  And I hope it happens more when he decides not to show up for games.

When has Babcock ever benched ANY Wings player considered to be top 9?  If he had any sack at all Franzen would have been benched long ago. Cleary, Franzen and Samuelsson are a 10 million dollar bag of s***.

Franzen should have been packaged with what ever it took to get a replacement for a DEFENSEMAN.

#2446526 Brendan Smith

Ericsson and Kindl were both like that.  We knew that they had potential, but it was hard to see beyond flashes here and there.


I'm not ready to punt on Smith yet.  I also don't want him playing big minutes yet.  Hopefully he'll have a good season in the not-too-distant future and come around.

 As was Jiri Fischer.

#2443241 10/10 GDT: Coyotes 4 at Red Wings 2

That's one hell of a great 14 million dollar number 2 line Badcock   and Holland put together. NUMBER 2 is a perfect description ****.

#2436053 So....did Cleary just take Tatar's spot?

Posted by nuts2u on 12 September 2013 - 10:11 AM

Ok first. Lets be honest someone is gonna get hurt in training camp. It happens every year. Sammy last year, Fil, Mursak the year before. It ALWAYS happens. Especially this year when so many people are fighting for spots. So unless something absurd happens we will most likely have to get rid of one less than we think we will. So it is entirely possible that Cleary could be extremely useful on this team. 


or i'm just trying to make the best of a cluster ****

I agree with the last word of your post.

#2434596 Franzen: "I am not a goal scorer"

Posted by nuts2u on 01 September 2013 - 01:36 PM

 About the only time Francine manages an assist is when someone else works their ass off to get him the puck and he happens to bounce it off a teammate and into the net.  Makes me wanna puke each time I think about him making only 1.7M less than Datsyuk, one of the best players in the league.

NOT 3 NOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

#2425288 How much is too much?

Posted by nuts2u on 03 July 2013 - 09:30 AM

I can't believe they're talking 3M for Cleary. Actually I can't believe they're even talking to him at any price.

Posted by nuts2u on 02 July 2013 - 04:56 PM

Stupid stupid decision.


I'll put an "F" bomb in front of that. Pay 36yr old $hitty 3rd liner in Samuelsson 3Million dollars and won't cough up 5M for center 3YEARS YOUNGER and is probably as good  as Zetterburg? :scared:

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

Pedophile is the word that jumps up when I see the creep.

#2423023 Letang Turns Down 8x$7m

Posted by nuts2u on 28 June 2013 - 08:23 AM

But Shero is GM of the year! I thought he could sign EVERYONE!  :greedy:



So did he.

#2423002 Letang Turns Down 8x$7m

Posted by nuts2u on 28 June 2013 - 06:54 AM

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.  

Amazed they made it and even more amazed he turned it down.

Much rather have Tootoo than Cleary!

#2399026 Watching Ericsson mature

Posted by nuts2u on 07 May 2013 - 08:15 PM

I'll agree Ericsson has improved, but I don't think he is a top two D man!  He still turns the puck over too frequently, generally doesn't think the game all that well, and doesn't use his big body effectively in most situations.  And when you think about it, this is his sixth season playing with the big club!  I expect more from him for the salary he is paid and for the years of experience he has!  He has developed too slowly, and in my opinion, the Wings should look at trading him while they still might get something for him, rather than letting him walk as a free agent!


His first full season was 09/10 prior to that he played 8 games in 07/08 and 19 games in 08/09.  He was drafted 291st the last player drafted in '02 which was the year he switched from center position to defense.

I'd say he has done quite well.
