#2530444 What's best for Mantha?

Posted by LeftWinger on 07 July 2014 - 03:04 PM

Just because I take hard line stances, doesn't mean I am combative with people...anyhow, I love when people disagree with me, but not when they just go "you're stupid" or "you don't know anything about hockey"

 

anyhow, I've been here for a VERY long time and contribute a TON of stuff, so I am not worried about someone disagreeing with me. If everyone agreed with each other this would be a pretty boring forum.

 

Here is your link on Stralman saying no to Detroit:

#2530419 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by LeftWinger on 07 July 2014 - 01:18 PM

They were just examples, and I am glad folks agree that there are players in the league that have more value than Zetterberg.  And know that I am not for trading Pav or Z unless it is for the likes of a player of their stature...I am not about just throwing them away for a rebuild, they'd have to bring in a new nucleus to our core.

 

Like I said, I am not saying trade them, I'd like to win it again with them, but the way Holland has been doing things the last few years, it ain't happening...

 

and I mean, the shriveled old man he is slowly going to turn into as his contracts expires...I give him full credit and appreciation for what he does and has done, but once Pav goes, Z becomes that much less effective and has the years come off his contract, he will start to turn old and not very effective at all.




#2530375 What's best for Mantha?

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Mantha (if he wins it, we don't have a legit top 6, so it's open to take!)

Nyquist - Weiss - Alfredsson (I know this is Frazen's spot, but if Alfie re-signs, I prefer him here.)

 

 

...dang, we got too many forwards...what do we do with Miller/Abby/Glendening/Andersson/Helm? Not to mention Callahan and Ferraro...sheesh, no wonder we weren't really looking at UFA forward.




#2530166 What's best for Mantha?

Posted by LeftWinger on 05 July 2014 - 08:57 PM

if he makes the team, its because he deserves to be here. He isn't gonna make the team to be in the bottom 6, so he isn't going to be playing 10-12 minutes a game. If he makes the team it will mean playing 25+ mins. If he doesn't show good enough to make the top 4 minute getters, then he should and will go to GR. If he earns it, he should start and stay here...even if he goes into a slump. All players slump and have fight through it.

 

if you ask me, its looking like its his spot to lose. From all indications he us going to get the longest look if any rookie in years!

 

I like these a top 6, if he makes it:

 

Z - Pav - Mantha

 

Nyquist - Weiss - Franzen (Alfie if he signs)




#2530024 Hockey News: Red Wings D hunting

Posted by LeftWinger on 04 July 2014 - 07:27 PM

he will not trade for anyone. Considering he won't part with kids, or Helm, Franzen, Smith or Kindl...He talks a big game and lets everyone down... Heck Leisure Suit Larry has made better moves than #firekenholland...and has scored!




#2529647 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 July 2014 - 09:48 PM

Freshy....its obvious that Jim Nill was the brains of this operation...




#2529540 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 July 2014 - 03:32 PM

I just cannot believe that even with the remaining D men out there, that #KFQ was the choice for Holland... I cannot believe that Morris and Gleason are still unsigned and #KFQ got re-signed and a raise...




#2528973 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 July 2014 - 06:53 PM

This is how bad of a destination Holland has made Detroit... Erhoff signs for $4M and Boyle for $4.5M... Kyle F'ing Quincey for $4.25m? Are you serious? Really? Really? Where is that guy from the Arby's commercial? Really?!?!




#2528965 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 July 2014 - 06:48 PM

f*** Ken Holland...if any of you defend this guy, then you are just as much re-re that he is...

 

I am done. Thisf****** idiot has lost it. He should be fired right now. I will not watch this garbage anymore. I have put too much into this as a fan. Z should ask for a trade today. His talents are wasted here. Hey, its ok, we'll get Cleary and Alfie...

I forget who that drunk guy was but in three words, he summed up Ken Hollands efforts as a GM since Scotty left...and it should be etched on his headstone....ready? All together now!

 

 

that's the  JUCK f****** POTT!

If Holland indeed offer Boyle 2yrs $10M, I applaud the effort, but in the end he took less to go to a better team....and in that end, that is Holland's fault for not making the necessary moves to make Detroit a spot to come and play... It all started with Franzen over Hossa...but I won't beat that horse...again.

..... :lol: Kahn just tweeted the Niskanen informed Wings he is headed elsewhere! Ken Holland has destroyed Detroit as a destination...none of you guys can defend this clown anymore. He may have tried to get these guys, but he made Detroit so unattractive, that nobody wants to come here.  This guy needs to be fired... I am losing hope for this franchise as long as Holland is here. 

 

Look for the same roster sans Bertuzzi come October.




#2527585 UFA day looking up

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 July 2014 - 09:40 AM

NJ Wing....Kindl is a must subtraction...we cannot move forward with K or Q on this team. Lashoff, for what he is getting paid, is a far better #7 guy.  We could use Kindl's $2.4M cap hit as well.




#2527464 UFA day looking up

Posted by LeftWinger on 30 June 2014 - 11:07 PM

I would love to see LeBron survive a Kronwalling...if he had to be carried off the court for a twisted ankle, :lol:  Hey Detroit old-timers, remember 1988 NBA finals Detroit vs. LA?  Isiah played and scored a record 25 points in one quarter on a severely sprained ankle with hairline fractures... Poor LeBron will never know what it means to have heart...

 

 

anyhow, back to a real man's sport...it is know July 1st! LETS DO THIS!!!




#2527460 UFA day looking up

Posted by LeftWinger on 30 June 2014 - 11:01 PM

I think a UFA day of Niskanen and Boyle would be a very good day for us.  I would be happy with those two.  I know the risk in Boyle's ager and Niskanen's one year wonder, but it sure beats sticking with what we have and not giving it a try.  I would admire Holland's balls (what?) if he is able to land both. Plus that means Quincey is definitely gone and more than likely Kindl is also!
