#2614715 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Posted by Son of a Wing on 15 June 2015 - 11:40 PM

If Cleary is re-signed he will not cost anyone a roster spot. He will be assigned to the minors and collect his promised pay cheque there and be glorified mentor for the young guys.

It's really a non-issue since we shouldn't even be that close to the cap.


#2614373 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Mantha.. Physical? Power forward? Beast? What's Frank smoking???


#2613480 The return of The Mule?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 07 June 2015 - 10:01 PM

So for all you guys who are so concerned for Franzen's health...If doctors declare him healthy enough to return and claim he's at no more risk of serious injury than many players in the league...You'll fully support him as a player?

Or are you all just hiding behind a shroud of caring?


#2613301 Time for an offer sheet?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 05 June 2015 - 09:41 PM

The fact that Petry is being compared to Hamilton shows just how little some understand the market.

Ufas are not comparable with Rfas. It doesn't work like that. lol

Well this makes Quincey's deal look not so shabby.


#2609931 Players who might be available due to teams cap issues

Richdg, you realize its the media's job to create stories like these out of nowhere right?

To keep saying "You don't know what's going to happen" to people is getting old.

Simple logic can determine what Tampa will do.

#2608091 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 15 May 2015 - 11:37 PM

 

Watch his presser again it's clear that he wants a Yes man but I don't think Burkes son is a yes man.

 

I don't think you know who Sean Burke is...

Public GM comments to keep the fans interested. Nothing more. They want to get better. Ok. What is better? Who are they going to get that is better than (pick your expensive vet) that is also cheaper? No one of course. The goal is to be a better team. That means you make moves, as in plural. maybe a Dman for a F or a F for a Dman. These things happen all of the time. Once they make their moves, whatever they end up being, most of us will be surprised at the moves-like we always are......

 

Well they could simply bring back Sobotka (cheaper and better) and deal Berglund for a pick or even waive him.

 

They're not trading their captain and leader. No chance. 

 

Much like Chicago isn't dealing Seabrook just because their feeling the pinch.




#2606074 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 05 May 2015 - 07:31 AM

Everyone not named Z, Pasha (we wouldn't get a good price back and it would be classless to trade them), Kronner and Howard.

 

Soo...trading everyone but Datsyuk and Zetterberg to purposely make us not competitive is not classless?   

 

That's a f***ed up sense of logic.

 

I'd love to see that conversation with our leadership group.

 

Just to get one shiny new toy. Selfish and disgraceful way of thinking.

You're right. Maybe it's the mood of the board of late, but it seems sarcasm is running rampant. Getting tough to tell the differance sometimes.


Ha agreed. Sometimes its just nice to step away for a bit and come back cooled down with a clear head.

Only way to get rid of Weiss's contact is to take on an equally bad one.

Am I sensing some sarcasm?


No sarcasm. Even with those contracts we're in great shape.

Posted by Son of a Wing on 03 May 2015 - 09:42 PM

I don't expect any additions aside from a defenseman.

Franson, Green or nobody.


#2605803 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 03 May 2015 - 09:40 PM

Blame Holland? Absolutely.

He deserves a ton of credit for supplying us with the deepest crop of prospects in the league and great cap position.

Kudos Holland.

We'll be in amazing cap shape if we can shed Weiss and Kindl. Even if we can't its still pretty stellar.

Great job Holland.
