#2313566 Parise Watch [update x2]: Red Wings OUT of Running

Posted by LeftWinger on 03 July 2012 - 12:08 PM

I heard from a reliable source that Parise took a dump this morning.


...and that will not compare to the dump he will take if he signs in Minny...

#2313518 Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

Suter won't be an issue...13 years, frontloaded contract, #1 defenseman on the team, best defenseman in the league, multiple Norris Trophies while here... Suter will be a Red Wing...

Parise, ya, if we can land him too, super! But if not we could get Nash or Ryan along with Semin and possibly Meuller and things would be rockin!

#2313517 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by LeftWinger on 03 July 2012 - 11:06 AM

Uh....nobody really liked the Dallas Drake signing either.... Some of you guys are very finicky....we want toughness, we want someone to stick up for Pav and Z, we want someone who will sacrifice his body, someone to fight in the corners, someone to check people tenasciously...then Holland signs someone like that, and he is only 28 and put in 30 points last season (a career high, so he deserves a raise,) and you all freak out!

If you ask me, a 4th line of Abby - Helm - Tootoo seems to me like a very hard line to play against and one that will generate a TON of excitement with tons of energy and hits...

I like this signing, came out of nowhere and it could be a helpful acquisition in securing Ryan Suter for the next 13 years...and then they BOTH could land us Weber if he becomes a UFA next season...this is no guarantee, but it can't hurt...

Good on you Holland, every year you kick the tires, this year, starting with the draft, you actually have squealed the hell out of those tires and if you can follow this up with Suter, Semin and Nash then those tires will be ripped right from the wheels! Great job so far Kenny, great job!

#2313504 St. James: Wings have inquired about Rick Nash

Posted by LeftWinger on 03 July 2012 - 10:50 AM

If it takes a Franzine package or a Fippula packge....just do it! It's Rick Frickin Nash!

#2313346 Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

Suter, Nash & Semin....please...

#2313321 Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

God I hope we land Suter.... Land him and trade for Nash.... Bingo!

#2311516 Pens Targeting Suter and Parise

Here's a couple interesting tidbits concerning Parise and Suter.

Report: Pittsburgh’s offer for Parise — “many years between $7-8 million”

The Ryan Suter sweepstakes will likely drag into next week

Well then if Holland is serious, he'll just have to up that to $8M-$9M....longer contract...front loaded so he is making $10M-$11M a year for over half the contract... What Mr.I wants, Mr.I gets....all he has to do is feel slighted by Shero and the Pit owner and "Badaboom!" Parise will be his....along with Suter.

IMO, though I could care less if Parise does not come here. Suter is more important, then Holland can focus on the Doan's around the league... besides if Holland lands Nash, we'll be saying Parise? Parcheesee? Pepperoni? Pimples? Who?

BTW, it's nice that an "offer" leaked out, can anyone say tampering?

#2311472 Predictions on where players will land

Posted by LeftWinger on 30 June 2012 - 04:59 PM

Well wingydingy....they need to sign 2 forwards and 2 defensmen. If they give Brunner that spot, then yes one forward, but you better believe it will be a top 6 rather than a bottom 6. 2 defensmen, sure they have Quincey as a RFA, but dump him and get Suter & Garrison...That will bring them to 23 players. When and if they keep Abby, someone (Emmerton or Mursak) will be bumped out. May as well go for Doan too and bump both of them or trade them in a package or just for some draft pick depth....

Wonder if the words "I like the team we have currently" and "we can always add at the trade deadline" will be spoken from Holland tomorrow

<SLAP> You watch your mouth!

#2311460 Predictions on where players will land

Posted by LeftWinger on 30 June 2012 - 04:17 PM

I am gonna say Suter/Doan/Prust/Meuller/Garrison/Montoya - Detroit... everyone else I could care less about because nobody will be able to touch us after we acquire Nash to go along with those UFA's!

#2311458 D Justin Schultz signs with Oilers

Also, it's be nice to get Petry off their hands and into our system!

#2311246 Brodeur may test open market

Posted by LeftWinger on 29 June 2012 - 06:50 PM

Howard is in a contract year, don't think he will like splitting time with someone when he wants to play the most he can and the best he can to get a nice fat paycheck next year...he would really hate if he lost his job to Fat Boy and it would suck if he just said F/U and walked as a UFA....

#2311245 Paul Gaustad re-signs with Predators

Posted by LeftWinger on 29 June 2012 - 06:45 PM

No thanks to Gausted....there are too many other bottom 6 players available that are better...but if we get to plan D, then sure....

#2311243 Habs sign Moen

Posted by LeftWinger on 29 June 2012 - 06:43 PM

This is where the forum breaks down. Shame that Matt just upgraded too...

Nah the breakdown will be if Parise and Suter BOTH go elsewhere, worse yet to the PENS, worse yet if Ken Holland kicks the tires and gets no one.... Then the forum will break down.....yikes!

Ryan Suter may wait until after July 1 to make his decision in free agency.


How stupid....it aint a hard decision....everyone is gonna offer you $7M-$9M dollars average, you just have to decide which offer to take....I know you don't want to make the wrong decision, but you just got to look at what's better for you. In Detroit you will be #1 on the Blueline, make just as much money here than there, you have superstars to play with here (none with noodles for brains) and you have a more consistent winning tradition and playoff appearances...The better coach, the better goalie, he is your Team USA teammate as well, the better owner...hindsight is always 20/20 but don't hols up anyone, because whichever team you go to, the others want to go on to plan B and if you delay then those plan B's will be gone....don't hold up either team, make a decision July 1st so the other's can move on....

I for one will be PISSED if Suter decides to wait a few days as the Garrison's get swooped up (not that he is a replacement for Suter, but is a backup plan) and then he chooses a different team leaving us with Quincey and Kindl to round out the top 6....HIGHLY PISSED!

#2310780 Sidney Crosby signs 12-year, $104.4M Contract, $8.7M/yr

Then obviously you care about your own personal hatred for a player than the actual success of the team.

agree...if I can get to like Chelios, I can get to like anyone, besides it wouldn't be the first Red Wings player that I had disgust for...
