#2679976 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

Posted by Echolalia on 28 June 2016 - 07:35 PM

it's also a valid point for him wanting to play the last years of his career in his homeland, in front of his people and close to his loved ones.

As long as his loved ones are within a 90 minute radius

If Holland does not trade Pav and Howard, he should be fired.

Take a shot every time someone on the site says this. Lol

And the family stayed for every one of them. Yet I still don't see any of this on mainstream news like Ali. Total disgrace to give attention to a divisive and controversial figure and not to one of the most stand up human beings and his family of our lifetimes.

I would think he would want to have something done by the UFA interview period June 25th. 



if anything he might want to wait until the interview period so he can see if stamkos is even interested in coming to detroit

now we know why datsyuk stayed last season


Holland said Wings told Datsyuk they'd fight him playing in KHL 15-16, agreed if he honored that, accept him leaving this summer.

Bad Start. Blown Lead. Shootout Woes.

Always Average vs Better Future.



Starter. Backup. Troublesome Tandem.

Scrutinize GGA GAA. SV%. Bad Pass Goal Count.

Overpaid. Trade. NTC. Now! Later! Never!

New Contract. Future?  Future???!

*head explodes*

/close thread.


FYI: GGA = good goals average... just in case you were wondering. 


EDITED: for sensitivity issues.

.625??? Lol damnnn that's horrid. Really? .625??





I don't think the team has been playing bad overall.  I mean they did just have a 13 game point streak, and are currently second in the division.  But they are leaving a lot of points on the table, and perhaps just as importantly giving points to the opposition.  If that .625 was the league median .900, that would translate to 4.4 more wins, or roughly 9 extra points, and a handful of points taken away from those teams who came from behind to beat the Wings.  9 extra points puts the Wings just behind Dallas for the league lead (who incidentally wins .933 of their games when leading after two periods).


Edit: actually it would be less than 9 points, because some of those wins were converted from OT losses, where the Wings did get a point.  So its closer to 5 points.  So they'd be with Montreal (with a game in hand).

That would technically make Nyquist - Sheahan - Franzen the third line. Daaaaamn. 

Yeah, I'm starting to think that might be okay. Would you disagree?


Unless they try


Tatar- Richards - Nyquist


Jurco - Sheahan - Franzen 


I know Nyquist/Tatar haven't worked as well in the past but it might work with Richards for whatever reason.

#2623201 Red Wings Sign D Robbie Russo

Posted by T.Low on 16 August 2015 - 03:13 PM

Article from Chicago area regarding Russo

"Unlike Hawks prospect Ryan Hartman, a West Dundee, Ill. native, and Hawks backup goaltender Scott Darling, a Lemont, Ill. native, Russo did not grow up a Hawks fan despite the proximity to the team. Russo was a Red Wings fan growing up, according to Second City Hockey staff writer Ryan Hood, who attended high school with him for two years."

If Franzem retires he doesn't get paid. If he sits on IR he does. It's to his advantage to not retire.


Yeah, that too. Whatever happens, it's very unlikely he'll retire so I don't think we'll have to worry about the penalties is all I was trying to say.

If Brian McGrattan had a nickel for every time he's had his ass kicked, he'd be $infinity in debt.
