#2531821 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by kipwinger on 12 July 2014 - 11:51 AM

He already said he wants market value on this contract. So like I said, no problem with trading Tatar for green.

 

Market value?  How dare he!




#2530326 Trial date set in Steve Moore’s lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi

They will settle. The asking price is all part of negotiations. Nothing significant will happen. Moore will get a fair amount of money and then this will go away.




#2531777 Rule Changes in the AHL (what the NHL has considered)

Posted by drumnj on 12 July 2014 - 09:17 AM

Yesterday the American Hockey League annoced a few new rule changes.  I know the overtime and fighting (Yzerman suggested it last year) ones have been considered by the NHL as well.  This may be a test run in the AHL and could be something we'll see in the NHL for the future.

 

Rule 85 (“Overtime”)

  • During the regular season, the sudden-death overtime period will be seven minutes (7:00) in length, preceded by a “dry scrape” of the entire ice surface.
  • Teams will change ends at the start of overtime.
  • Full playing strength will be 4-on-4 until the first whistle following three minutes of play (4:00 remaining), at which time full strength will be reduced to 3-on-3 for the duration of the overtime period.
  • If the game is still tied following overtime, a winner will be determined by a three-player shootout.

Rule 20.4 (“Major Penalties”)

  • An automatic game misconduct will be applied to any player who has been assessed two major penalties for fighting or three major penalties for any infraction in the same game.

Rule 9.6 (“Helmets”)

  • A player on the ice whose helmet comes off during play will be assessed a minor penalty unless he immediately (a) exits the playing surface or (b) puts the helmet back on with the chin strap properly fastened.

#2531718 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Lidstrom was a competitor, hell all pro athletes are. You don't get to that level without being one. Knowing when to walk away is one thing he definitely didn't learn from Nick. I don't blame him completely, but he can't be so blind to think he can still hack it on this team.


Idk about u, but if I had made the big leagues I woulda milked every second out of playing for the wings. Especially if the GM was giving 2.5 million too. Sure beats retiring


#2531696 Confused on the direction of this team going forward

Don't worry Kenny's got a firm grip on the wheel.

So it's true. He listens to the expert opinions of the staff he pays for this sort of thing. What an idiot.

 

I bet those same experts told him to resign Samuelsson, Williams, Bertuzzi and Quincey.

 

Seems to me like he needs to find new experts. 


I was just going to post that. What exactly does he expect his fellow teammates to say about him? Of course they are gonna say they enjoy having him around. Of course they are going to say they 'want' him back because if he does end up back in the locker room it would create unneeded friction.

 

It's up to Holland to read between the lines here and make the best decision for the team.

Exactly. The GM is supposed to be the freaking voice of reason for god's sakes, that's why he's the GM. Not just leave all decisions up to the players.

This is actually very sad because instead of being hated vehemently, Cleary should be celebrated for the hard-nosed player he used to be. But with this latest move Holland has turned him into a persona non grata.


#2531321 Who has been Ken Holland's worst recent free agent signing?

Posted by gcom007 on 10 July 2014 - 07:24 PM

I liked Modano, it's a shame it didn't work out/freak injury. You take a chance on a future hall of famer. Tootoo was an interesting idea, but the rest were garbage from the beginning.

 

The whole Modano situation could've played out completely differently if not for a freak injury. It's silly that people knock it given what happened. That one ought to be disqualified if you ask me.


all of them minus Colaiacovo

 

What kills me is that once the guy was healthy, he wasn't so bad for us. I was actually surprised we bought him out given our lack of depth on defense and that once healthy, he played relatively well, considering he was cheap and coming off of injury. At the very least, it didn't seem like he was the first salary problem that needed addressing, that's for damn sure.

I don't like the signing, but for the sake of the team, I hope Cleary proves us all wrong.

As a moderator here, I'm just glad the Wings didn't announce the re-signing of Quincey and Cleary on the same day.  

 

Remember when we all used to joke about them both re-signing like we thought it wasn't possible it could happen?

 

I feel like it's our fault. We made this happen. We joked too much...
