#2624411 Moving Jimmy Howard

Do you think RFA Petr Mrazek is going to make 5 million dollars?  I don't.  I don't think that's remotely probable, regardless of the season he just had. 


Everyone always thinks that good young players, with tons of potential, are going to make a fortune after the ELC runs out.  They might for other teams, then don't for the Red Wings.  Look at Nyquist and Tatar.  Both are on reasonable bridge contracts.  Mrazek will be too.

#2620816 Stan Bowman (CHI) on CBA troubles

Nope sadly a yahoo link and their site is just....https://ca.sports.ya...-212225823.html


I'm just saying it's super-teams that people even not interested in the sport are going to know about, the more super-teams the better and even better if those teams can keep their talent.


The Kings are far from being done, they'll get rid of the Voynov contract sign someone else to replace him yeah the Richards thing (rightfully) is going to hurt them but given their age group LA's run is far from over. Wouldn't be the least surprised if the win it all this year.

Canadian ratings are down, but that has more to due with Rogers being awful than the product being bad.


Ratings in the US are soaring 

#2620709 33,487 Miles

The Detroit Red Wings will travel the fewest miles of any team for the upcoming 2015-16 season.





Less travel is always good but how hard is travel really on teams now? They get to fly in a private plane that has a lot of perks for them. It is not like the general public flying.

Jet lag is jet lag. Change in elevation also affect oxygen perfusion to tissues. 


Private planes or not, you can't circumvent physiology of the body. It's still affected once the plane has taken flight. 

#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.

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

Posted by kipwinger on 01 July 2015 - 04:47 PM

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.
