#2639281 Ferraro on waivers

Posted by DickieDunn on 25 November 2015 - 02:22 PM

Would you be willing to trade a new car for 5 rusted out pieces of crap that don't run?


A lot of crap is still crap.  Adding more crap to it doesn't make it valuable.

#2627808 Kane case headed to grand jury

Someone had to put their twenty cents in. ;)

Well it wasn't gonna be Kane that's for sure

I am not assuming anything at this point.  Presenting a video where professional athletes have went broke for various reasons, including being taken advantage of, isn't bias.  So far, there is no proof of innocence or guilt.  Either way, I hope the truth comes out for the sake of the NHL and hockey and Kane is either exonerated or put in jail accordingly.


Sorry I might have misunderstood your original post.

#2625174 2015-2016 expectations

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 10 September 2015 - 04:57 PM

CUP OR BUST!!!!1111!!1!

*craps pants*

In all seriousness, I will consider this season a success if we can make it out of the first round. With a new coach, new staffssss, and youngins possibly coming up, I'm not going to be butthurt if that's as far as it goes.

#2624739 Cleary re-signs... 1 year deal

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 September 2015 - 01:50 AM

As expected and really I don't see a problem with this. At best he will be an emergency call up from the Grand Rapids and while being there he can show some younger guys (Mantha, Larkin) the way and since the 950k aren't counting against the cap it doesn't really matter. Personally I'm in favor of everything that helps prepare Larkin, Mantha better for the big club in a few years if that includes signing a veteran with a great work ethic so be it.

Loyalty...this all but guarantees that KFQ will be back...oh happy days! Doesn't Holland realize that #redwingfansmatter?


How does this signing in any way effect you? I dont see how Holland signing him, means he is showing any type of disrespect towards the fans.


Its basically a minor league contract, we are not going to lose anybody because of it, the money will not count towards the cap.

#2624031 Moving Jimmy Howard

Posted by GoWings1905 on 28 August 2015 - 06:20 PM

No. I wouldn't even consider it until next summer.

1. The Red Wings are a better team with both Mrazek and Howard than with any pieces they could possibly get for Howard.

2. Howard was a really good goalie until January last season and Mrazek hasn't seen the grind of a full NHL season yet.

3. What's the insurance policy if you trade Howard and Mrazek gets hurt?

#2619111 Nyquist Files For Arbitration

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 05 July 2015 - 04:55 PM

It's amazing how fast people will turn on a player.


If memory serves, this is more of a basic procedural thing than a real indication that things are going poorly.  By filing for arbitration Nyquist forfeits the right to accept an offer sheet from other teams.  In other words, he's committing to the Wings by filing.  


Today is the deadline to file so the timing is likely a result of that, not something that happened with the Wings.  I'm pretty sure this is something players do that's just a backup plan for a worst case scenario. And again, by doing so he cannot accept an offer sheet from another team. 

#2618179 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

What's this I hear? Ken Holland actually made a meaningful and reasonable signing on July 1st? Hell I'm going to play the lottery today. 

#2617466 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 30 June 2015 - 10:31 AM

It's been said repeatedly in this thread-this year's UFA class *sucks*. Why are people distraught that Kenny doesn't want to play in the muck? We have awesome prospects coming up, and I for one don't want to hamstring this team with overblown contracts on mediocre players that will then turn around and ass eff us when we try to keep all our young guys down the line.

That being said, I certainly wouldn't mind a good trade or two, but I want nothing to do with UFAs this year.

#2613343 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Lol.  I kind of want it to happen just to see people lose their minds. 

#2611423 The return of The Mule?

Posted by kipwinger on 29 May 2015 - 03:52 PM

There really isn't any reason to take this discussion too far afield.  Anybody who's been around LGW for a while knows the kinds of reactions that Franzen has received around here.  And the criticisms have definitely gone pretty far beyond observations of his play. 


If people genuinely feel bad for him, that's fine.  Who am I to say how you should feel about the guy?  I was just making an observation that there were an awful lot of people who had nothing good to say about him and wanted him gone at any cost.  Many went so far as to feminize his name (because chicks are lame bro! durrrrrr).  And some of those same people now act like they really give a crap about the guy...so long as he still leaves, of course.


I wish the guy all the good health in the world.  And if he wants to continue playing hockey, or trying to play hockey, who the hell am I to wish otherwise?  He and his doctors certainly know better than I do whether he's subjecting himself to anything unwise.  And he and his family are far more capable of weighing the risks and rewards of playing than any of us.
