#2528658 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Well looking at the positives, Mike Ilitch is not going to watch Holland running this team like a small market one for much longer. Offer Lombardi or Chiarelli a blank check and let's see if Anschutz or Jacobs are matching..

 

I'm afraid aging Illitch just wants to see the Tigers win one and is content to see the Wings playoff streak continue.

I'm pretty convinced Khan was wrong about Niskanen. 

 

 

So apparently I'm currently in the denial stage of grieving.

Whelp, thems the breaks.  Nothing to be angry about guys.  It's fate.  There was literally nothing else that could have been done to improve this team over the last 5 years, other than what's already been done. Nothing.  He went to the wall and it just wasn't in the cards. 

 

Ken Holland is only one man.  He can't produce miracles. 

 

I disagree (unless you're being sarcastic?)

 

Replace Ken Holland's name with Dan Cleary and tell me if that line of reasoning still works.  

 

Cleary works harder than almost anyone on the ice, but that doesn't matter.  He simply doesn't produce the results necessary to remain competitive at the NHL level. 

 

Holland has an incredibly difficult job.  So do the other 29 GM's in the league.  It's not always going to work out, but the results are still what matter.  Not how hard he tried.  

 

There were absolutely things that could've been done in the last 5 years.  Just because Holland didn't make them doesn't mean they didn't exist.

Report: Holland found at Bell Tire looking confused ...repeatedly kicking tires. The report further states he will continue to kick tires at Bell Tire until his meeting with Dan Ceary at 6.

THEN GIVE HIM THREE YEARS

 

Honestly, all this hand-wringing. If you have a shot at an elite, game-breaking talent, and he wants maybe one more year than you'd really like to give him, and your team is a bubble team without any major upgrades...

In a frigging heartbeat.

Maybe we really are considering a trade. Stranger things have happened. Moses parting the sea, for example. No one saw that one coming.


God totally saw that one coming. He even posted about it obnoxiously on aquatic message boards. It is stated clearly in the bible that his username was TheOneTrueKing69YOLO.

Ehrhoff is a smart guy. Signed 1 year deal with the high scoring team which made Niskanen look like an All Star Def... Next season, Ehrhoff will score 55-60 pts and then he will sign a new longer deal with a team of his choice...

GUYS. Take a breath. Let's not assume OMG WE COULD HAVE DONE THAT WHY DIDNT KENNY DO THAT?!?! Maybe KH wasn't given the option to do that. Maybe E wanted to go to the Pens.

And f*** s***sburgh.

I just signed a contract: 6 beers over the next 3 hours to continue being a Red Wing fan.


#2527011 Ehrhoff or Niskanen

Posted by Playmaker on 29 June 2014 - 06:21 PM

I'm just hoping we get one or the other.  A top 4 defenseman with offensive skills that will cost us nothing off the roster is just what the doctor ordered.  An upgrade on the backend will make our forwards that much more productive and can only help Smith and DeKeyser.  Can't it be July 1st right now?
