In Topic: Buffalo clinches last spot

I think this is why each and every team should have the same chance of getting the 1st overall pick. I'd rather see the cup champion get the 1st overall pick, than watch a team do whatever they possibly can to tank. The current draft lottery provides incentive for failure.

In Topic: Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

....and in 3 months of the same results, we'll find out that Mrazek also sucks* and since Red Wings fans can't ever be happy about who the damned goalie is, some of the same people with want Howard back.....
 
 
*= as if any of these goalie "experts" got past Juniors if they even played there OR had a leaky defense like what is currently in front of Howard/Mrazek/Gus/etc/etc/etc.


So apparently to post a valid opinion on a message board we need to provide a CV that includes playing time beyond the junior level.

Someone had best tell Ken Hitchcock he has no business coaching in the NHL then, since he didn't play the game at even so much as the junior level. That Stanley Cup winning, Olympic gold winning coach is such a fake assed poser. Man he never even played junior hockey. What an unqualified bum.

I'm glad to know his opinion would have no standing here on LGW. Phew

And for those who feel posts need "sources" as if they're college essays:

In Topic: Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Two prospects that were buried behind better prospects here, for a guy who can help us this year and perhaps beyond if signed.

The prospects get a more reasonable shot a making the show, we add some size and grit. Looks win-win to me.

In Topic: Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Also I still hate the "diesel" nickname


It is aweful. And quite arbitrary... Luckily few people are using it, which speaks to it's quality as a nickname.

In Topic: Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

I think Diesel should get about $3M max. I would prefer $2.5M.  Lets consider the possibility that Kindl may likely be gone, so that would free up $2.4M.  If Diesel was going to get $3M, then if Holland gave him a bit more, it wouldn't hurt the cap too much.  I would like $2.5M to $3M, but I would be upset if he got $3M to $4M. We have to get him locked up. He chose Detroit over all the other teams who were throwing offers to him, Holland needs to exercise his well known loyalty contract and show his appreciation for choosing Detroit.  No lowballing, no this is Detroit, no we are farmers...none of that.  Its time for a change in philosophy.  Start showing the FA's out there that you are willing to pay quality players, quality money and they may start taking notice.  Stop paying your below average players the same amount of money you are offering the high end UFA's and things will change.
 
If we dumped Kindl, I wouldn't mind seeing Diesel and Tatar getting a combined $5M-$6M...with Diesel getting the bulk share of course.


By Diesel do you mean Kevin Nash? Cause thats a horrible nickname that I really hope doesn't catch on.
