#2618395 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by Jersey Wing on 01 July 2015 - 04:38 PM

Are they better for the singings today? YES they are. More competition from the kids, more insurance for injuries. No prospects lost. Money comes and goes.


So far the Wings have gotten better.

#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.

They don't have a defense.

#2617787 Alexander semin being bought out

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.

#2617773 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by marcaractac on 30 June 2015 - 09:55 PM

So pissed about this entire Weiss situation. Holland screwed up by signing him over Filppula (yeah yeah I know I still miss him), Babcock managed him like s*** two years in a row and Holland should have just bought him out when he had the chance to do it without penalty.


It wasn't Holland who screwed up by signing Weiss over Filppula. Filppula wanted to go elsewhere. Weiss was signed because we were losing Flip, not because Holland chose Weiss over him.

Hamilton's three years younger than DK as well, so it seems unlikely Dekeyser will overtake him as a player. 

But I'm a homer, so I'll try to lean more towards our player.
You know how it goes Harold.

He didn't want to stay in Boston, that's why.


Even if this were 100% true, they made no effort to start a bidding war for him. There are GM's out there who didn't even know he was on the market. Lousy trade no matter how you look at it. 

#2617329 HHOF #5 Lidstrom head of 2015 class

LOL at Housley getting in ahead of Makarov and Lindros.  


The guy was another accumulator who played in a high scoring era.  He couldn't play defense worth a lick.  Not sure why he'd get in but Andreychuk wouldn't.  He's another accumulator.

I don't disagree with you there.  A true #1 defenseman with an offensive side and capable of being a PP QB would be nice.  Holland seemed to put all his eggs in one basket with assuming he'd get Suter, and when that didn't happen, he sort of did nothing.  At the same time, the Wings just don't have a lot to offer in terms of assets.  Since Suter, I don't think there's really been a whole lot out there in terms of defensemen who fit with what the Wings need at a price that makes sense.

#2615458 LGW Moderator Problems

Posted by Jedi on 20 June 2015 - 10:26 AM

We've confirmed that the recent influx of spammers are actual people, not spambots or anything like that. As such, there may not be much we can do to prevent the occasional attack.

We have tools that make cleaning up these attacks extremely easy (one click on their profile and they're banned, content removed and ip-blocked). But unfortunately we can't use these tools until the spam posts are brought to our attention. That's where we need members to use the "report post" tool.

When a post is reported, the system sends an email to each of the boards moderators and Admin. That way we get notified, even if we're not on the boards.

One thing though, most of these spammers tend to attack the boards in the very late/early hours, when most people are asleep. LGW mods are just like everyone else, we have jobs and responsibilities that make it hard to be online at the time these spammers hit. So please understand that we will take care of the attacker as soon as we can, but it may be several hours before a mod can be online.

#2614559 REPORT: Axel Holmstrom Signs With Detroit

If his goal song isn't Axel F I would be very disappointed. 

#2614883 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by marcaractac on 16 June 2015 - 10:36 PM

"King Henrik" is about as intimidating as a pair of dress socks. Guy can't get it done in the playoffs. I'll count him out for next season right now. He is overblown.


False. The team in front of him can never get in done in the playoffs. It isn't his job to score goals.

Their problem has always been center depth. Stacked at G. Stacked at D. Nash and company at wing (even though Nash choked).


To me Brassard and Stepan are both great 2nd line centers. But they're going to compare to the Datsyuks, Toews, Kopitars, and Stamkos's of this league.

#2613608 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by vladdy16 on 09 June 2015 - 09:06 AM


For me? Yes.


The Chicago - Detroit rivalry will eventually die. Just like the Colorado - Detroit rivalry did.


Tampa should be as much or more of a rivalry as the Hawks. The Wings are already playing more important games against Tampa. That's not going to change.

The Chicago rivalry will never die, much like the Detroit/Toronto rivalry never did.  We pass it from generation to generation.  

#2613388 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Posted by rick zombo on 07 June 2015 - 01:21 AM

Exactly. People are going to lose their s*** over a guy that played 17 games last season and probably would play even less under Blashill. He's a veteran presence in the locker room that the Red Wings feel they need to take care of, for better or worse. His impact as a hockey player will not have any affect on the team going forward.

He'd be taking a roster spot. That affects the team going forward. Sort of like if I told you Detroit would only be allowed a 22 man roster. Believe it of not, it matters. I won't freak out if Cleary comes back for another tour, but he can't really play hockey anymore. I'd rather they invent another role for him.
