I'm starting a "hire McGuire" petition. Who is with me?
No thanks...I can do without countless mentions of Sidney Crosby during a FSD Red Wings broadcasts... Now if he wants to take Franzine's spot on the roster, I will sign that one! Can't be any worse! (quota met)
FSD has decided to save money by not hiring anyone to be between the benches. Instead the Red Wings are just to have Franzine handle it while he floats around out there. He has a great view by the way! No need for a Color Commentator to replace Mick on the road either...Franzine mic'ed up!
I would prefer to not see the Wings buy this season.
I will admit that it would be hilarious to see the deadline slappies get all excited about Holland making a big deal and then vilify him for trading away assets if the Wings don't end up winning. Of course, I would rather not see that happen.
I wonder who you could be referring to?
I certainly hope for a deal. I still think that some team out there is going to inquire about Filppula and Nyquist. I will repeat, I DO NOT want to get rid of our 1st round pick this year! Are you listening Kenny?
In a different thread, someone had mentioned that Sustr had received about 20-25 offers...I wonder if Holland called. I know he can only get so much money, it all comes down to if he gets icetime or not. The same would be for Danny...crossing my fingers for at least Danny if not both! I have a feeling that Dekeyser is Hollands first choice, so he probably isn't even going to make a decision until he sees if Danny is available after the selections....Hope he doesn't miss out on Sustr and then WMU gets selected and he doesn't get Danny now either. Of course he could still pick Danny up after the tourney...damn I want both of these guys here!
You are absolutely correct, but it doesn't mean it is gonna happen. There must still be some hurt feelings within the organization, but hopefully they can mend those bridges and do the right thing.
One can only hope they do the right thing...
It was encouraging that Sergei was (is) going to play at the Winter Fest Alumni game. Baby steps I guess. It would be awesome to have the Russian 5 reunite for that as well...of course Vladdy couldn't play, but to have them all on the ice together at the same time...oh.my.goodness!
Good thing about these guys is, nobody can outbid anyone else. There is a rookie cap at $1M plus bonuses with a maximum cap hit. So every team that is interested has to offer them the same amount of money. It just all depends where these guys choose to play....
Don't forget about Jake Patterson who should have been the starting goalie for Canada in the WJC if not for the overhype of that dink Subban.
That is true, maybe when Monster is done in 2014, either Mrazek will up to be backup or maybe this guy will be backup and keep Mrazek playing every night in GR with Paterson backing him up...either way, with Pearce and McCollum on the outs, the organization needed another goalie. Especially when Monster leaves...
