#2309331 My 2012-13 Roster

Posted by LeftWinger on 23 June 2012 - 06:30 PM

I am going with my fantasy roster until they are not available anymore:

FORWARDS
Zach Parise ($8.000m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m)
Gustav Nyquist ($0.875m) / Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Bobby Ryan ($5.100m)
Damien Brunner ($1.000m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m)
Danny Cleary ($2.800m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.250m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m)
Drew Miller ($0.838m) / Jeremy Welsh ($1.100m) /

DEFENSEMEN
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Ryan Suter ($8.000m)
Ian White ($2.875m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Brendan Smith ($0.875m) / Justin Schultz ($1.100m)
Danny DeKeyser ($0.825m) /

GOALTENDERS
Jimmy Howard ($2.250m)
Al Montoya ($1.000m)
------

SALARY CAP: $70,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $67,070,833; BONUSES: $37,500
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $3,229,167

There are always back-up plans....obvious one Semin in for Parise or if Ryan doesn't find his way here in a trade. Parise AND Semin would be nice...but then again, if Ryan isn't traded for, then I will have to put Franzen back in...like I said, this is my roster until they are not available anymore...

EDIT: I know Dekeyser is going back to Western this fall, but I don't like Kindl in there, so I put Danny in.

Rasmus Bodin is 6'6" and 207lbs. at 18 years old? Says he had to quit hitting because his elbows are head level with the smaller Swedish players and he always gets penalties....I can see this kid being the dark horse of the draft..seriously. Get him over here ASAP and get him in GR to get used to North American play...I like the size and assets this kid brings...this kid won't sit for 5 years, no way! Once he plays with some other big players he will have no issues hitting!

A huge player with great strength and reach. Has a cannon of a shot. Works hard. Surprisingly mobile for a player of his great stature. Very raw. Project. - Elite Hockey Prospects http://eliteprospect...hp?player=40853


The "rumor" about Suter not playing in the east is coming from Minny...


Ryan Suter's agent denies that he's supplied a list of teams he'd be willing to be traded to

I just have to say....behind Suter there is no legit #1 level defender, so Holland has to throw all the marbles at Suter...Chelios needs to be inviting him over for dinner EVERY night and selling this team! Iltich himself needs to send a private jet to pick Suter up and get him ANYTHING he wants to be a Detroit Red Wing....Holland BETTER outbid everyone! I will sacrifice Parise to guarantee Suter is wrapped up for at least 10 years! Give him a front loaded contract, bonuses, stock in Little Ceasers, give him an A, or s*** go right for the C, build a new stadium and name it the Suterdome....whatever it takes Holland! WHATEVER IT TAKES!


#2309312 Red Wings 2012 5th round selection- Mike McKee

Posted by LeftWinger on 23 June 2012 - 05:28 PM

Here it now....Mike McKee will be the next player to wear #24 in Detroit AND since he is heading to Western this fall, he can get a year under his belt with Dekeyser and become friends....then they can both be Red Wings SOON!

I am utterly surprised Kenny drafted this kid....good on ya Kenny! Ok, so not exact same off season so far...Good pick up here!


#2309291 So What's Up With Abby & Quincey?

Posted by LeftWinger on 23 June 2012 - 04:35 PM

I hope he doesn't give Quincey more than $3.2M!

If f****** Pittsburgh ends up with Suter AND Parise, I am done, I am jumping off the proverbial bridge....


#2309276 Flyers trade JVR to Leafs for Luke Schenn

Posted by LeftWinger on 23 June 2012 - 04:03 PM

Have to wonder if this is clearing the way for Bobby Ryan to Philly & Justin Schultz to Toronto.


:ranting: Watch your mouth!


#2309274 So What's Up With Abby & Quincey?

Posted by LeftWinger on 23 June 2012 - 04:01 PM

...are there any rumblings or rumors out there concerning these two? You would think that as RFA's they would be signed before July 1st (if they really want to come back.) Maybe Abdelkader will a bit harder to re-sign than we imagined...

I know Holland was kinda busy today but I would hope he at least has talked to Abby's agent. I wonder what the hold up is for him...he may be looking for (and could possibly get) near $2M somewhere. I would think that that would be a bit much for him, but you never know around the league. If that is the case, I'd sign them both and trade them...possibly in a package to the....Ducks! :lol: Sorry, but until Bobby Ryan and Justin Schultz are unavailable, I am going to try to find ways to get them here! :lol:


#2309270 Red Wings make contract offer to D Justin Schultz

Posted by LeftWinger on 23 June 2012 - 03:50 PM

Just an FYI, Justin becomes a UFA in about 10 mins...I really hope Holland does go hard after him....

Well....so far...same old off season...same old Holland...Hey Holland, TRADE Af****** ASSET!


#2309059 2012 NHL Entry Draft Discussion

Posted by LeftWinger on 22 June 2012 - 09:48 PM

Rumor on twitter is that Pittsburgh is looking into trading for Suters rights. LGW will be set on fire if that happens


You are damn right...if that happens the I will seriously question Holland's thought process...the problem is, he cannot sit still and watch his rivals get younger and better and just believe that either the UFA's will come running because "It's Detroit" or that his undrafted Euro's that he is always interested in are going to put Detroit back on top...So far...same old off season to start... Let's make a deal tomorrow!


#2309009 2012 NHL Entry Draft Discussion

Posted by LeftWinger on 22 June 2012 - 08:58 PM

Pitt is getting better....these guys they are picking are one or two years away from the NHL...the trade earlier has Sutter ready for the NHL...that is another reason some folks are getting a bit antsy with Holland, perhaps our biggest Eastern Conf. rival is getting younger and better and Holland is...well and so far, same old Holland.

Kenny....It's party time! Lets do it!

Make a stand....slap Shero in the face! I am sure your phone rang a few times tonight...Make like Luke and Let Go! The past is gone...Lidstrom is gone...time to move on...Feel The Force...Grow a set...

Pierre McGuire went postal on the Flames for doing this, quite funny. He's such a drama queen.


Ya and he also said that Craig Button was very instrumental in building the Championship TeamS in Dallas....I'm sorry, did I miss something? Dallas won more than one? :lol: Pierre needs to be in the NBA...
