#2529393 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by b.shanafan14 on 02 July 2014 - 10:47 AM

I'll say this: Holland did as well as he could with his offers to other FA that chose to go elsewhere - besides maybe Gilbert which could have been a cheap improvement and still left room for the top-2 or -4 defenseman we were seeking. Despite his compounded failure to "nut-up" in previous off-seasons, I honestly believe he did all within his power to get the players we needed this off-season (given the current sad state of the team, which is his doing). If they don't want to come here, you can't force them and shouldn't grossly overpay them.

 

However, there is absolutely ZERO excuse for the Quincey signing. That is disappointment turning into full-blown, unavoidable, mature, objective, and justified RAGE. Holland did what he always does when he misses out on his target: slaps some tape and shoe-polish on trash and tries to pass it off as a "bargain" or a "consolation prize". We aren't getting the sirloin because they ran out of prime rib; we've been fed a steady diet of cold spam. For that, Holland should be replaced.

Guys, it's only a 2 year deal. If we signed someone as a FA, we'd have to pay more and for a longer term. For a defenceman who plays 20 minutes a night, it's a good contract. Quincey would have got more if he hit the open market.


It's irrelevant how much he'd get on the open market. He is terrible, we'd be better off with Sproul or Ouellet.

Oh no, pay ehrhoff the same or niskanen 1.5 more lol..... There is no way any one can defend holland on this, and say it was the best move for this team and organization.

So...

Are we supposed to let Chris Ilitch know how upset we are about this?

At what point do we voice our displeasure? Our beloved Winged Wheel is being run into the ground by a buffoon.

I leave to go to the gym for an hour and a half and I come back to this s***?! What the hell is Kenny's problem? This guy is absolute trash and you give him a raise? I'd rather they just play the kids than sign this waste of space. Kenny needs to be fired. NOT PROMOTED. Promotions are for people who actually earn it by doing well in their previous position. I can't stand this anymore. I know I'm spoiled because I am only 25 and missed the dead wings years, but I've never been more embarrassed to say I'm a Wings fan. I wish I could be as horrible at my job as Kenny and Kyle here and not get fired, or better yet get a raise..must be nice.!

Somebody wake me up from this nightmare. I dont know how anyone can defend holland anymore. Its time to take him out behind the shed and end this. He is a record stuck on repeat. Ownership is loyal to a fault - this s*** shouldnt fly.

What a pathetic GM Holland has turned out to be.  To bad we couldn't get rid of thisf****** scrub of a manager during the lock out..

Actually, we'll probably be a middle of the pack team again. Woohoo exciting.


Worst place to be in hockey. The Wings are turning into the Calgary Flames. Lingering in mediocrity and Holland is content to keep the playoff streak alive. Honestly, it will never happen, but shouldn't the Wings consider moving Z and/or Pavel? They aren't true contenders and aren't bad enough to get high draft picks to make an immediate impact (or they rot in Grand Rapids for four years anyways). I don't know, after today, I'm at a loss. Feel like it might be time to just tear it down entirely and rebuild.

I've generally been quiet and tried to avoid any sensational posts...but damn...Quincey again, with a raise? I would have been happier signing no one. Was Jim Nill the real brains of this operation?

The real loser over the last 5 years is pavel datsyuk.


#2527476 UFA day looking up

Posted by Shaman on 30 June 2014 - 11:39 PM

 

He's not coming back. Ok? We'll never know if it's PR spin or not. You have ur Red Wings live in fantasy land opinion, I have a different one, but at the end of the day the loser is gone so lets just be happy about it.

 

On a two way contract I'd take him!

 

I would not take him on a two way contract

 

I would not take him with a missing contact

 

I would not take him with Megan Fox

 

I would not take him with two pet rocks

 

I would not take him Shaman I am

 

I would not take that defensive sham.




#2526906 FLA to Buyout Jovanovski

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 June 2014 - 12:38 PM

Ah, I might be thinking of Wisniewski. Or maybe it was both.

 

Pretty sure Wisniewski said it.  Not sure about Jovo.

 

In any case, what they said was true.  Kenny is cheap.  




#2527119 Ehrhoff or Niskanen

Posted by kipwinger on 30 June 2014 - 08:51 AM

Erhoff would likely get 6M range. It helps our bargaining stance. Erhoff is the safe choice but I really want a right handed defensemen. Erhoff seems like a Kenny type of deal 3-4 years

 

Lol.  LGW is the only place where every free agent is going to get 6 million per year, and the starting point for every trade is Mantha + 1st. 

 

Christian Ehrhoff will not get 6 million dollars.  Not happening. 




#2527074 Ehrhoff or Niskanen

Posted by darkmanx on 29 June 2014 - 09:36 PM

we can afford both. Erhoff got bought out, so he can come fairly cheap. $3M maybe. Niskanen $6m maybe. Trade Kindl and give that $2.4M to Diesel. You still got $5m for Sheahan and Tatar. Once you dump Andersson and give Sheahan and Tats about $2.5M together. You have over $3M for Iginla or just hold on to the $3M for space.

Wow.....  :no:
