#2618533 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Posted by FlashyG on 01 July 2015 - 07:39 PM

He managed to find us a RHD we've been looking for since Rafalski retired, he addressed our lack of center depth after buying out Weiss. More importantly he did both without tying us to either player long term so even if they don't work out, it won't be a disaster.


To top if off he and Mr. Ilitch already worked out a pretty awesome new dance routine with our new additions.



#2618443 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

In typical LGWs fashion, the thread about the Richards signing has more pages than the Mike Green one. 

#2618417 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

It's laughable at how people complain about Holland doing nothing in years past, and now he goes out a makes some deals today, and some people still complain.


Holland signed one of the biggest d-man F/A's today, then picks up an UPGRADE over Weiss, for only one year, and people still aren't happy.


I'm 100% happy with what Holland did today.  Well done, sir!


The Richards' deal doesn't hurt us, so it's not a "bad signing".  It's just confusing given our center depth and the Weiss buyout.

Except he hadn't just won the Cup. 



Meh. He'd be a depth signing. Still good on the PP. And waaaaay better than Cleary.

Glad to be rid of Weiss, maybe we should sign Semin? Is like: maybe if I get addicted to meth I can give up doing crack.

#2615355 Sean Avery - Transition Season

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 19 June 2015 - 04:32 PM

I don't post on the forums much anymore but I do come on to check in and read over the threads. If this has been posted before my apologies. But I stumbled on a great article. For as much flaming Avery gets I thought this was worth a share. It's a great read. Enjoy!


I was ready to make a joke about Avery, then I read it.
And its shocking how down to earth and literate he is in the article.
He seems like a well balanced person, which is something I didn't think I would ever think of Sean Avery...
Thanks for the link!

No matter who wins at the end of these things, I still get chills when the final horn sounds.

And I like watching the losing team cry too.
Not gonna lie.

#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. 

#2613490 The return of The Mule?

Posted by kliq on 08 June 2015 - 12:54 AM

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?


I'm guessing this isn't directed to me as I am not one to put down Franzen, but here are my thoughts. From my understanding, doctors will give Franzen the okay if he is fully recovered from his concussion. It is also my understanding that with every concussion you get, you are more likely to get another one if you receive another blow to the head or even body. Based on the number of concussions he has had, and based on the fact that it appears every year he is missing more and more time, and from what I read his symptoms are getting worse and worse (this could be wrong) I hope he never plays again for his own health.


If it was told to me that Franzen would never have another concussion again with 100% certainty, I would gladly have him back in our lineup. Him at 100% is exactly the kind of player we need.

#2613324 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

I don't hate Dan Cleary, but he's starting to remind me of that guy who just sort of invites himself to everything.

#2612824 The return of The Mule?

Posted by kipwinger on 02 June 2015 - 09:27 AM

People really want to give up completely on Jurco already? I get the frustration in the moment, but come on... Is it really so hard to think long-term just a little bit?


Nah dude, he sucks.  Cut him.  Make him trade bait.  Cut bait and trade him.  etc.




Because one time, there was this guy named Ville Leino.  And get this, Ville Leino was lazy, arrogant, and entitled.  So therefore, he sucked.  And Jurco wasn't really very good this year either.  So chances are, he's probably like Ville Leino.  Because both of them weren't very good, for totally different reasons. 


Make sense now?

#2610053 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Posted by wings_fanatic on 25 May 2015 - 02:18 PM

After watching his goodbye to the media, I can say that Babcock is such a great person. Not only was he a great coach for us, for 10 years, but he was simply a good person. Everyone got so worked up about him taking too long, but if you were watching him, you could tell how upset he is to be leaving Detroit. He cared for these players, he acknowledged that players like Nick, Pav and Hank were a huge reason for his success. He talked about how the organization is set up for tons of backup plans, he talked about how he has been spoiled, about how his kids have grown up here and how they are now moving away for school. The guy is just good and any team in the league becomes better if he is the man in charge of the bench.


I have had the benefit of meeting Mike Babcock 3 separate times when the team I coached got to play at Joe Louis. Mike made it a point of his day to always come see the kids before their games (even while he was preparing for the Wings game). He would come in, introduce himself, talk to the kids about hockey, ask them what their favourite team was and so on. Just such a classy guy. Oddly enough, for the kids who said their favourite team was the Leafs, Mike joked around and said he was 'sorry to hear' haha.


I wish he was coming back, but at the same time I embrace change and I look forward to Blash and seeing what he can do to get our team going a step further.

I don't blame anyone for not wanting to spend their winters in Edmonton.


What about that mall they have?  Don't women like malls?  

Shanny called Mrs. B personally and said he'd make her feel right at home.


I wonder how many posters here get what incident(s) you're referring to?
