#2620455 New Ultra-Enhanced Video/Renderings of the Arena District

Posted by SetecX on 14 July 2015 - 06:01 AM

For anyone interested, I started a blog to follow the construction progress of the new arena, via my drone.



#2620557 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by number9 on 14 July 2015 - 10:50 PM

Seems to me at this point that Franzen will be ready to start on the roster this fall. So all you "I hate Franzen, but feel bad for his booboos" sell outs better be ready for my pro-Franzen sh**-storm.


You turned on him and now this is what you get

I really hope there's room for Jurco on the third line this year and that he does well. I liked the way he played in the playoffs. With skilled linemates and more minutes his point totals have to go up. I can't see Franzen being shipped out. It's just not the Red Wing way. He pretty much willed us to a Stanley Cup let's not forget

McCarty is probably #1 on my list of Red Wings I'd like to have a beer with

If you pay, he's probably the most likely red wing to join you for a beer too :P

Very Happy and honored to be wearing #17 for Wings after two other P.E. Islanders wore it. Forbe Kennedy and Gerard Gallant.

Can't belive there are 3 pages about a guy that will play on the 4th line of the Griffins

#2619640 Over/Under for Larkin's time as a Red Wing in 15/16

Posted by wings87 on 08 July 2015 - 02:18 PM

Last year this team got embarrassed by Boston, this year they were better but after watching Stanley Cup playoffs is obvious that the Wings are far away from cup contention. Tampa will only get better and the West is well just loaded.

Anyhow just don't rush Mantha, Larkin and hope that Pasha can stay healthy.

They lost to Boston yes, but they didn't get embarrassed. Other then a few empty net goals and 1 really bad game the series was close. Tampa is good, they should continue to progress. It's also possible some players had career years, and will take a step back,and as always injuries happen. My point being is that a lot factors into a franchises continued success. Wings at the moment are upper middle of the pack with room to grow, it's not all so bleak.

Other then that, if Mantha and Larkin are ready they should play if not let them continue to develop.

I think if he has an outstanding camp he may play a few games early in the season due to Datsyuk's injury

#2619439 Tarasenko re-signs with the Blues (60 mill/8 years)

Posted by toby91_ca on 07 July 2015 - 12:49 PM

I guess I'm in the minority, but I'd prefer to see consistent performance before handing out a huge contract like this.  Very good chance the contract ends up being a bargain for the Blues, but I still scratch my head a bit.

#2619182 Nyquist Files For Arbitration

Posted by FlashyG on 06 July 2015 - 04:05 AM

The mistake many making here is assuming that this case even gets before an arbitrator.


Neither side wants that, no player wants to hear his employer explain all his shortcomings in an effort to cut his salary. Nyquist has excellent regular season production but he'd be roasted on his awful playoff numbers to this point. Still I think he'd get a better offer by going to arbitration than what I think he's going to sign before it gets there.


I expect him to take a deal in the 3.75 to 4.25 million range, similar to Kadri's but perhaps a little longer. 

#2618808 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

More Green on TSN: "I was willing to take a little bit less on term to go to a great organization that I’m extremely excited to play for."

In typical LGWs fashion, the thread about the Richards signing has more pages than the Mike Green one. 

Fewer years = Less time to complain. Gotta get the shots in while they can, and make em count more than 3 years worth of complaints...

#2618445 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by gcom007 on 01 July 2015 - 05:12 PM

I'm just happy to see Holland taking some chances, especially after Weiss blew up in his face. You can't be scared of free agency just because some deals don't work. You've got to build first and foremost from the draft for sure, more than ever in this era. But you can't accommodate for everything in the draft. You've got to plug holes via trade and free agency. There's no guarantee these moves will get us a Cup or work out at all, but you've got to keep trying. And these deals today are pretty good ones.


But if these too blow up, I really will be convinced that Holland is 100% completely cursed.
