#2202467 Weber Arbitration hearing...

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 04 August 2011 - 09:50 PM

$7.5 mil for one year. He wanted $8.5 mil. If he thinks he is worth that much, he's got a serious problem. Think you're God's gift to hockey, fella? Well, you just proved that God has a good sense of humor.

In arbitration the player usually requests above his value and the team usually requests below the player's value. If Weber's wish is offensive, the Preds number was worse IMO.

#2202237 Nabokov plans to report to NYI's training camp

Posted by eva unit zero on 03 August 2011 - 03:04 PM

Only LGW would consider the following facts:

Nabokov signs in Detroit, but has to pass through waivers.

The Islanders needed a goaltender; with Dipietro injured and Roloson traded, Snow was left with prospects at varying levels of development.

Snow claimed Nabokov on waivers.

Nabokov refused to report.

Snow instead picks up Al Montoya.

LGW Conclusion:

Garth Snow the biggest idiot in GM history.

Real life:

Garth Snow made a smart move, and was vilified by LGW because of it.



#2201749 Report: Gary Bettman makes $7.5M

Bettman is a ******, but he's doing a fair job.


#2201793 Report: Gary Bettman makes $7.5M

I didn't say for anyone to explain a neg rep. I said for people to stop being cowards and actually rebut Konnan in some capacity.

I'm not quite sure if this is a troll or if you accidentally implied the irony of cowardice all while posting anonymously on an internet message board.

Really, who cares?

So another bash Bettman thread... how original...

Another complaint about bashing Bettman...How original...

If you're not interested in commenting, don't. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean others shouldn't either.


#2200961 The Real Osgood Question

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 July 2011 - 06:59 PM

If Ed Belfour made it to the hall of fame, Chris Osgood is in.


#30 will no longer be worn by a member of the Detroit Red Wings. #5 will no longer be worn by a member of the Detroit Red Wings post-Lidstrom.


Shanahan won't have his number retired here, because he played in too many places (HFD, NJ, NYR, DET, STL)

McCarty won't have his number retired here because aside from flattening Fraude Ledouche in 1997 and scoring the 97 cup winner, what else has he really done? Went to Calgary, had problems, came back, retired.


Belfour was one of the 3 or 4 best goalies in the world for about 10 years.

Ozzie was never in that class, period.

#2200614 Osgood should(n't) be included in the HoF...

He's a lock for the HOF, with all his vezinas.


#2200582 The Real Osgood Question

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 July 2011 - 12:01 PM

Is he as good as or better than Sawchuck?


This is a valid question, and one I've been pondering since discussion came up about this.

If it is agreed that Osgood is better, then he belongs up with Terry. If not, I really don't think so.

I can't come to a good conclusion. The eras were different. Terry played with no back-up and through all sorts of pain and injuries and troubles. Terry's life was tragic, as was his death.

All of this makes it hard to have an objective comparison as to which is better, and if Ozzie belongs there.

My heart says yes. My head says no. My stomach says go cook some spaghetti.


Are you guys joking? :blink:

Sawchuk is one of the 5 greatest goalies of all time. Osgood isn't even close to being as good as him. Whether Ozzie should be in the rafters has nothing to do with Sawchuk. You guys talk about Sawchuk as if he's just another solid goalie.

I say if Red Kelly isn't in the rafters, then Ozzie shouldn't be either. Same with Fedorov. Both those players were better Wings than Osgood, and neither will likely get a banner.


#2200551 Draper or Hudler?

Posted by newfy on 23 July 2011 - 09:45 AM

You're thinking of Zherdev. In fact, I think most people who voted "Draper" may have Hudler confused with Zherdev. Given that many were in the Zherdev thread asking for his addition, yet want Draper over Hudler due to hard work and defensive ability.

Yeah youre right, theres no way Hudler would be concerned with money and try harder ina contract year after he was s*** this season.. Its not like he has ever left a stanley cup contender to play in Russia or something :rolleyes:


#2200373 Chris Osgood announces retirement

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 22 July 2011 - 12:47 PM

What Oz has done for this franchise and the others he's played for has been remarkable. His numbers and accolades speak for themselves, but as much as it will piss off some...I don't see him making up in the rafter, HOF'er or not.

You look at how many guys have played for the Winged wheel yet only 6 guys currently have their number retired. Detroit is beyond stingy with the players they decide to have their numbers retired (which I completely agree with) and I truly believe #5 will be the next rather than #30. It's no knock on Ozzie, IMHO guys like Fedorov don't deserve to be up there as well and guys like Z and Dats have a hell of a long way to go to even be in the discussion as well. I'm ultra picky about who gets up there because the more players they retire, the less of an honor it becomes....and in Detroit, that's what it deserves to be.

That being said, I can't imagine he wouldn't make the Hall. He's most certainly worthy of it and deserve to be there.


#2200252 Detroit Fans Have Turned Ugly

Posted by Tommy_Like_Wingy on 21 July 2011 - 10:28 PM

The guy is right for the most part. The last two post seasons have been nothing but whining about officiating when we've faced San Jose. Whenever things don't go our way everybody cries about the officiating. It's getting old.
