In Topic: Dear Mr. Holland: Forget about FA, trade for Yandle and Ryan

05 July 2012 - 10:22 PM

I can't see Kenny going after Nash or Ryan. The need right now is on defense. Yandle is the ideal guy. Something like Flip, Abs and Quincey may get it done. Sign Semin. Sign Doan if you can. Go with that. This would be a successful off season.

The thing is, to acquire a top 2 dman like Yandle, who is entering his prime, will cost a premium. Phoenix is going to want Flip in any deal with Detroit. Kenny will have to give to get if he wants Yandle.

Two RFA's and a UFA next year who will surely bolt for a 25 year old stud defenseman. There's no way you're getting Yandle, Nash, or Ryan without at least including one of Smith/Nyquist. These teams aren't going to give away their franchise players for scraps, guys.

In Topic: Zach Parise agrees to 13-year, $98-mil deal with Wild

Lol. They got outbid by Minnesota.. By $8Million dollars over 13 years. That's $600K a year. Pretty minuscule when you're talking about guys making Millions and Millions of dollars a year. If Detroit was really such a great destination and such a powerhouse, they would be with Detroit now and not Minnesota. It had nothing to do with money. The Wild actually have 4-5Mill in cap remaining and 19Mill coming off the books next year to go after another FA by the name of Shea Weber.

But hey, at least you got Tootoo right? Lol

Dead Wing era 2.0 is on the horizon. Have fun with that. :tounge:

LOL at thinking Weber would want to sign with Minnesota. Sorry, he's not from there.

Yeah, lets spend 50mil on five players. Goood way to build a team.

Sour grapes guys, sour grapes. Don't worry, we'll take it easy on you this season :tease:

Uhhhh what? At best, these moves probably put the Wild in the playoffs. They're not contenders by any means...with the second highest payroll in the NHL.

In Topic: Is Mike Babcock the issue?

05 July 2012 - 12:38 AM

Absolute nonsense. The guys on 97.1 generally have no clue what they're talking about, especially when it comes to hockey. Terry Foster repeatedly caled Suter Sutter the other day. He sounds like a complete moron when he tries to talk sports period, let alone hockey.

I'm pretty sure I saw an NHL player poll last year that asked players which coaches they would most like to play for and Babcock was either second or third (I think second).

These guys wanted to go home, simple as that. Not much the Wings could do outside of offer more money, which would have been stupid (they're both already grossly overpaid IMO).

In Topic: Matt Carle signs with Tampa Bay: 6-years, $33-million

@DarrenDreger: Carles agrees to 6 year contract with Tampa Bay. $5.5 aav.


Good God...I don't know much about Carle but I know he's not worth more than Kronwall lol.

Yandle, Doan and Semin, please.
