#2618506 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by Carman on 01 July 2015 - 06:57 PM

Good signing. It's a contingency plan, with the worse case scenario is a 40 point 3rd line center. We weren't going to use up all our cap space, and Brad Richards is a very reliable, experienced center. This is a nice low risk move I like it.

Great signing, this hopefully will give our team the much needed offensive power from the blueline. Sure, the 6 million in the books are a risk, but one worth taking. And our streak with bad UFA signings has to end at some point. As long as he doesn't pick #90 as his number I'm very optimistic Mike Green will help us a lot.

It's laughable at how people complain about Holland doing nothing in years past, and now he goes out a makes some deals today, and some people still complain.


Holland signed one of the biggest d-man F/A's today, then picks up an UPGRADE over Weiss, for only one year, and people still aren't happy.


I'm 100% happy with what Holland did today.  Well done, sir!


The Richards' deal doesn't hurt us, so it's not a "bad signing".  It's just confusing given our center depth and the Weiss buyout.

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.

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.

#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)

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.

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.

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.

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

"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.
