#2268774 Smith/Kindl/Ericsson

Posted by arag on 09 March 2012 - 11:21 PM

I've never been a big Ericsson fan, but I don't blame Holland for his contract. It was based more on the over inflated market for guys like Wisniewski and Ehrhoff, than his skills.

Crymson already mentioned it: The market was weak and over inflated, Kindl and Smith were unproven, and Rafalski retired.

I agree. Every team has at least one player that they are overpaying for the skills and services provided. We are blessed to have just big E.

#2267152 Yzerman for another gold medal

Bring the Gold, to the Red White and Blue.

I love to cheer for Yzerman, Holland, and Co, but not when it's for Team Canada.

Well. Team Canada has some "Red" in them.

#2264511 Post-TDT: Red Wings stand pat, no additions

Posted by arag on 28 February 2012 - 01:09 PM

I won't. He.could score 900 goals including the Cup clincher, i would still want him out....

Could not agree more. Hudler is a joke. Come playoff time he will be falling on ice like a snow flake. He will cough the puck up just from players skating close to him. He is slow and his accelarion is rediculous .
Oh well. Let's hope everyone stays healthy and plays with passion. If they o that, we will be ok.

#2260909 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by arag on 23 February 2012 - 07:45 AM

I like Quincey a lot, he's a big body, he can hit, he can play heavy minutes (25+ if need be) and obviously in all situations. I am positive he will re-sign at seasons end but if not, as he is an RFA we get compensation, likely at worst a 2nd round pick.

That is why I can't believe people are so upset about this trade. I'm willing to bet we traded a 1st for a guy who will be here as a 2nd pairing defenceman for a decade, sounds good to me.

I have a good feeling about Quincey too. Kenny said that he is not a rental. Safe to assume that he will be resigned.
Go Wings !

#2260859 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

How does his style of play (defensive minded or more offensive minded) compare to Stuart? Or is he more like White? I have not really watched him play, so I was looking for some input on his type of play other than just his stats.

Here we go.Thank you Tampa.

#2259580 Ty Conklin clears waivers, assigned to GR

Posted by arag on 21 February 2012 - 06:53 AM

Sure, you hate to see the guy lose his job midseason and possibly blow a shot at the Cup, but he's repportedly made over $5m throughout his hockey career. Any way you look at it, that's an awesome life to have lead. 5 milllllllion dollars! Damn.

Loose his job ? The guy was payed 750k. That is a little too much for a "great" or "cool" guy just to be in a team and suck every game he played, except that one game vs Avalanche. I think he should not play another NHL game if that is the way he plays.
Well good luck to him anyways.

#2257590 Trade Deadline Approaches

Posted by arag on 16 February 2012 - 11:06 PM

i like your updates. keep 'em coming!!

Was stuck in LA traffic and listening to hockey night in Canada. Bettman asked Kenny regarding deadline trades. Kenny confirmed that it would be a dept forward and or a D if he could find one. Those were his words " if we could find any"
So it would be safe not to excpect a big name player.
