#2621649 My grandfather's hockey collection!

Posted by pokemonbreeder18 on 27 July 2015 - 06:22 PM

Hey guys, first off, I apologize if this is in the wrong forum. It's been years since I've posted on the site here....anyway...back in May I did a tour of my grandfathers hockey collection (mainly to show you guys) and I finally got around to uploading it. If you have an hour free, give it a watch. There are a lot of great hockey stories in here. My grandpa has known quite a number of people over the years involved with the game and many of these stories have probably never been heard (except by me and my family 1000 times lol) Most of it is Red Wings related, but I specifically had him point out a few of his non wings stuff for others. Around the 45 minute mark I start asking him questions directly & it can get a little loud because I'm so close to the camera, so just a warning for that. But if you're a fan of hockey history, give this a watch!

Unless Holland's seriously planning on making a trade, that's too many forwards.

#2617363 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

This is by far the worst UFA class in a while. Everyone's going to get overpaid. This is a year that most teams should be conservative with signings, but someone will take a chance. I'll be fine if that isn't us.

Imagine a Wings team loaded with cheap young talented players a few years down the road, but too hamstrung with Weiss and Green type contracts to make constructive additions and make a cup run.

#2615975 Looking ahead to expansion draft ... If Vegas comes to the nhl etc

Posted by F.Michael on 24 June 2015 - 06:20 PM

Expansion is such a silly idea when there's franchises in dire need of re-location.


EDIT - and IMHO - forget Vegas...Seattle (Coyotes), and Quebec City (Panthers) should be the 2 top destinations.

#2606223 Players who might be available due to teams cap issues

Posted by F.Michael on 05 May 2015 - 09:16 PM


Well I certainly don't disagree with that.  But I think this is slightly different.  He's overpayed, overvalued, and underproducing.  No need to acquire a guy like that just because he's "real big" and "real tough".  He's a bad player and his own team is dying to get rid of the guy.  That should tell you something. 

Sounds like a perfect fit for the Maple Leafs.

Toronto media has been talking about the Red Wings for about 25 years now.

#2609207 About the 3rd Rd. Pick compensation...

Posted by KATIEBARTHEDOOR24 on 20 May 2015 - 07:07 PM

Has to be a 3rd in one of the next three years chosen buy (name we do not say).



Sorry, but I don't get the Deon liking. I really don't want him on the Wings.



I heard YFMB is available

But when Canada loses Canadians say, "It's only the World Championships"


We won and I still say "it's only the world Championships". Wake me up for the World Juniors.

That would rule soooo much.
