#2311240 Pens Targeting Suter and Parise

Posted by LeftWinger on 29 June 2012 - 06:39 PM

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...

#2310777 Parise Likely Out. Next Options

Posted by LeftWinger on 28 June 2012 - 03:07 PM

Crosby and Parise would be so ridiculous, f***...

So would Parise and Datsyuk, difference is Datsyuk doesn't have soup for brains! Nor does he dive all over the place, nor does he start things and run away... Parise can either play with a Man or play with a weaselly crybaby who is one hit away form missing another 60 games...It's his choice.

#2310767 Shane Doan to test free agency

Posted by LeftWinger on 28 June 2012 - 02:51 PM

Doan/Semin/Suter/Prust/Garrison....they are all still out there...they want Stanley...WE want Stanley...it's like the stars are aligned!

#2310598 Red Wings OUT of bidding for D Justin Schultz

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 June 2012 - 10:02 PM

Schultz will go to Edmonton and even with all that young talent they still wont make the playoffs this year.

or in a long time....all that young talent will soon price themselves out of Edmonton and then they will still suck...

#2310579 Red Wings OUT of bidding for D Justin Schultz

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 June 2012 - 09:28 PM

Screw him....we'll get Dekeyser in the Spring and McKee in 3 years and he will just beat Schultz's ass for the snub! Suter, Garrison and Carle are still available....Get it Done Kenny! Suter Suter Suter....

#2310453 D Wideman traded to CGY, signs 5-yr contract

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 June 2012 - 02:38 PM

Not that I am mad Holland didn't make this deal...but I sure hope Holland has his two defensemen on Sunday because the plan B's are running slim... That being said, Suter/Schultz me please!

Dream until the Dream ends....that's all we can do!

#2310219 Parise Likely Out. Next Options

Posted by LeftWinger on 26 June 2012 - 08:28 PM

Being realistic, if $10M is indeed what he seeks, then I like Semin and Doan for less combined! Suter always been #1 priority anyhow...I would love Parise, but can live without him....

#2310198 Shane Doan to test free agency

Posted by LeftWinger on 26 June 2012 - 07:13 PM

I can dream, but realistically, I see maybe two or three UFA's coming here. Suter being TOP TIP TOP priority followed by offense. Now if somehow, Holland pulled Parise and Doan out of his hat, then yikes! The difference is, this year, Holland has the money...all we need is for that first UFA to fall into place and as long as Holland has the money left, the other just may follow! With every quality UFA that sings here, other's take notice and would love to join them for a run at it! That was part of the draw before, we had Stevie, Shanny, Fedorov, Lidstrom, Chelios...other players wanted to play with those guys and came here and usually for less than market value...all it takes is Suter to sign and then others will take notice. You need that one UFA to attract the others....just like Pudge did for the Tigers...and it hasn't stopped since... Let's Go Kenny! Let's Go Wings!

Suter/Parise/Doan/Schultz! Why Not!

Dream until the dream is over!

#2310172 Shane Doan to test free agency

Posted by LeftWinger on 26 June 2012 - 06:24 PM

Ya, a good indicator, eh? No Parise? No Problem....Semin and Doan will fill the order... :lol: How about Doan and Moen? That would be an anouncer's nightmare....'Doan from Moen back to Moen to Doan, Doan Scores!" :lol:

#2310162 Shane Doan to test free agency

Phoenix GM Don Maloney says Shane Doan will test free agent market.

I guess he may not be so dedicated to the desert...Doan to Detroit? If no Parise, Doan would be a great option!

#2310110 Red Wings make contract offer to D Justin Schultz

Posted by LeftWinger on 26 June 2012 - 03:12 PM

And Holland isn't Babcock who has the ultimate decision. And we all know how Babcock operates, he doesn't just "give" ice time to players.

Sure Babcock will give him a chance on a short leash, but he won't tolerate much. If he benches him and Kindl outplayes him, then the new spot now belongs to Kindl until he gets in Babcocks' dog house.

That's how it's been and how it will continue. Babcock and Holland bump heads, this will potentially be yet another situation. but I doubt Schultz comes here anyhow, so I doubt we'll need to worry about it.

But certainly you know the tried-and-true Red Wings routine, right? You think the process is going to change? Don't kid yourself.

You just said right there what I have been saying all along! It's his spot to lose...so since you feel the same way, we could have avoided the bickering and useless typing... Holland will guarantee the spot, Babcock will start him and when or if he fails, someone else comes in...that I agree with....the spot is Schultz's until he loses it....if he signs here, and God I hope he does!

#2310095 Red Wings make contract offer to D Justin Schultz

Posted by LeftWinger on 26 June 2012 - 02:35 PM

"Year after year"? That's a head-scratcher considering Kindl has only played one full season in the NHL.

Now I am totally convinced you have no clue what you are talking about. Obviously you didn't watch him since you think he's played "year after year" in the NHL, but he had a month stretch during injuries where he was an absolute beast. Not bad for his first full season in the NHL.

Needless to say, the kid is barely 25 and has played well. He looks better than an older Ericsson his full rookie season, and is younger. I'm really surprised how people want to ditch Kindl, who has been solid, and automatically replace him with a 21 year old with entitlement issues who never sniffed a day in the NHL and could be the biggest flop since Brunnstrom. No way Babcock coddles Justin Schultz like other coaches will be instructed to do. Your solution? "FIRE BABCOCK!!!! CODDLE THIS KID WHO HAS ATTITUDE ISSUES AND ISN'T A TEAM PLAYER NOW KENNY!!!11"

Dude, you are hilarious!


Uh....Kindl played in 55 games last season and 48 games the prior season. Last year was not his first full season in the NHL, so yes, I do know what I am talking about... PLUS he played THREE full seasons and some change in GR where he was less than stellar amassing a nice -58 in +/- and a whole 89 points...

Listen, I am not saying get rid of him, I am getting rid of Quincey and keeping Kindl, BUT Kindl will not make the top 6 if Holland gets both Suter/Schultz. If Holland really wants Schultz here, he has to promise him playing time, if Kindl is bumped because of it, then oh well that's the business. If for some reason Schultz farts, and he might, then he'll be put up in the box, not coddled. Then if Schultz complains and *******, trade him. Bottom line is Holland is going to give Schultz that #5/#6 spot and it will be his to lose...Kindl and Smith will rotate the #6/#7....But if Quincey signs then Kindl is out...

#2309896 Top Swiss-leaguer Brunner to sign with Wings, Babcock has big plans

Posted by LeftWinger on 25 June 2012 - 11:09 PM

Brunner is going to come in and be Hudler's offensive replacement. The difference is, he seems to have a better defensive game and actually cares about the physical part of the game a bit....If he puts up 40-50 points he will be considered a successful signing...
