I think they got hosed on a non call trip. But man Larkin and Mantha look good together!

#2626024 Verrier has broken leg; Helm possible concussion

Posted by LeftWinger on 19 September 2015 - 08:51 AM


Darren Helm has grade 1 slight shoulder separation. Out 2-4 weeks, Ken Holland said. Still going through concussion protocol.


...injured he is, fragile he is, Barbie doll he is. Was told this for two years now you were.

#2625232 Versteeg traded to 'Canes

Posted by LeftWinger on 11 September 2015 - 02:04 PM

Chicago has traded Kris Versteeg, Joakim Nordstrom and a 3rd round pick(2017) to Carolina in exchange for Dennis Robertson, Jake Massie and a 5th round pick(2017.)






...sorry if this is already mentioned somewhere else, but I didn't see it.



I was relieved when it wasn't for Staal!

It is also to be noted that after this trade, the 'Canes have 10, yes TEN picks in the first three rounds over the next two drafts!

#2624685 Cleary re-signs... 1 year deal

Posted by LeftWinger on 04 September 2015 - 04:27 PM

...but wait, what if 2008 Cleary comes back, we'll have a helluva deal!

I saw pics of the Wings loading the buses to TVC this morning, I can picture Danny boy chasing the bus right now with his equipment bag over his shoulder screaming, "guys! Wait up! Wait for me!" then Z tells the bus driver to keep going, its nothing.


we need flashy to PhotoShop Danny in the Forrest Gump scene looking for a seat on the bus..."seat's taken."

#2624680 Cleary re-signs... 1 year deal

man, how many times can we hit the juckf****** pott? Plan the parade!

#2624085 Moving Jimmy Howard

Posted by LeftWinger on 29 August 2015 - 11:42 AM

Taylor Hall for Jimmy! Hahaha....

if you don't have anything to add to the conversation or are here just to troll, then move along.


if you remember, last season when the rumors about Hall being traded went around, an Oiler reporter named a few teams and players that would get a trade done. Detroit was named and the return was Sheahan, Sproul and 1st round pick for Hall & Petry. So laugh all you want, but if that would have been enough then Jimmy, Smith, Sproul and a pick is more than enough for Hall.


But by all means, troll along. BTW, Hossa has 3 Cups since we signed the other guy instead, he is still top line material and would be here scoring 40 goals playing top 3 sniper role. Fact.

#2624075 Moving Jimmy Howard

Posted by LeftWinger on 29 August 2015 - 10:24 AM

I am sure glad someone else made this thread and not me! :lol:


Jimmy WILL be moved before 16-17, unless Mrazek totally takes a crap fest this season (which I highly doubt,) because solid tandem or not, Holland cannot and will not have over $8M (at least) tied up in his goalies.  And that is IF Mrazek re-signs for only $3M.  If he wins 25+ games and takes them into the 2nd round at least, I see him getting closer to $4M. NO WAY will Holland have that much money tied up in goalies.


For all you Holland slappies out there (and even me from a financial standpoint) you better hope that Howard outplays and keeps his starting job all season and limits Petr's starts to 20 or less.  That way, Petr may re-sign for something around $2M, which could keep Jimmy around for another season. But then again, if Petr goes 17-3 or so in those 20 starts and Jimmy DOES re-gain his #1 form, that could mean more in return for him next summer.


Either way, as Mrazek continues his progression the way he has been, Jimmy's days are dwindling, that is the truth. Lets just hope we can get great value for him when it comes times to trade him....and he cooperates by listing 10 or so teams he will or won't go to.


In Edmonton, I would love to see him Packaged with Smith and Sproul and a pick (or maybe a young forward) to acquire one of their scorers (Taylor Hall maybe.)

#2623532 Help. Seeking DRW management team contact

Anyhow, good luck to you on the job C Y Fan! It would be great to work in the sports industry let alone for your favorite team! Keep us all informed!

#2623108 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by LeftWinger on 13 August 2015 - 05:59 PM

Well you see I did say, I predict....not that it will happen.  Don't wanna open up another one of those son's, brother's, uncle, daddy, sister's dog catcher debates!


But since we're in the subject......just kidding!

#2623080 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by LeftWinger on 13 August 2015 - 04:15 PM

This reminds me when the Wings poached Coffey out of LA for fallen center-man Carson.  He was pure offense, D was a bit of a question.  Not to worry, Coffey scored so much here that he won a Norris during his time.  Green has been close to winning before, but I predict that he WILL win a Norris within his three year contract.  I also predict he will never leave Detroit, he will retire a Red Wing.


...besides, most players who sign here or are traded here do.  That is the difference between this franchise and most others, we treat our players so well that they usually never leave. Welcome to Detroit, again, Mike Green.  It was inevitable that you come here, and now you will see what its like to play for the best sports franchise in the World!

#2623078 Mullets - post pics

No offense Danny, you're my boy, but it looks like you got into a fight with a weed whip! Did you lose a bet or something?

Also, look no further than my own avatar to see a very nice mullet! He can wear it because he's Roddy Piper and you're not!

#2622575 Free agents this off season

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 August 2015 - 10:12 AM

What is failed to been realized here is, its really not whether or not Mrazek is better than Jimmy (which he is) its the fact that the Red Wings cannot and will not have two goalies on the roster making $5M each after this season...when considering the future and the talent/age of each player, Jimmy will be the one to be dealt, not Petr.


...so anyway, UFA's still be signed, I guess Franson still has a chance!

#2622056 Who is better Nyquist or Tatar?

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 August 2015 - 06:21 PM

Yes, he is very diva-esque in that photo.

#2622050 Then and Now: Tatar vs Hudler

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 August 2015 - 05:37 PM

Tatar is better.
