With just Suter we look okay...

Preferably we would sign Semin and Trade for a top end forward (Nash/Ryan). But I'm preparing myself to see this.


With all due respect...that top-6 makes me want to cry. In a bad way.


#2313294 St. James: Wings have inquired about Rick Nash

I just heard, from a credible source, that a major 3-team deal is in the works. Apparently it's NY, Nashville, SJ.

Semin and Carle would be disappointing indeed.

I'm pretty sure if Holland is in his office checking twitter for updates, we're not being as heavily considered.


He might've been joking about that.

Oh, for the hate of Satan.

Brutal, this is.

Tootoo & Samuelsson. Too soon?


Tootoon.

If I was Parise and wanted to win a Stanley Cup, where would I go?

Pittsburgh has Crosby and Malkin. That top line would be a killer. On top of that, I have a cup winning goalie on the back end, and a solid defensive core.

Seems like a very easy decision. Pittsburgh is much closer to a stanley cup right now than Detroit is.


The Pens are coming off a monumental meltdown. They don't play D. MAF was shredded by the Flyers. Parise would be living in the shadows of Crosby and Malkin. He'd essentially be replacing J. Staal as the resident workhorse who does 80% of the forward unit's defensive work and gets no credit. And we can offer more $-wise. And I feel like I've said this 35,000 times now. Sorry for that. But for the life of me, I don't know why so many people seem to think the Pens are a near sure-thing.

this is all for show everybody knows after crosby banged parise and his whole family at game 3 of the finals he's going to pittsburgh .... F him


if we get suter trade quincey.abdelkader and unfortunetly nyquist for bobby ryan , hes got a more cap friendly hit than nash and less term


Where the hell is all this Parise hate coming from? Because Pitt.-based talking heads are playing up the Crosby friendship angle we should all just start hating Parise?


#2312685 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by Dabura on 02 July 2012 - 10:07 AM

Jesus, Sammy is 35!


#2312585 Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

Posted by Dabura on 02 July 2012 - 06:39 AM

Watch the language, dude.


Highly irregular, of course, but my blood was up!

Big day today.


#2312300 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by Dabura on 01 July 2012 - 07:05 PM

Maybe he and Suter are BFFs?


#2311962 Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

Would just like to reiterate:

Pens are coming off a meltdown. They don't play D. MAF was ripped to pieces by the Flyers. Parise would essentially be replacing Staal as a third-fiddle workhorse who does an assload of work and gets very little credit for it. We have an edge in terms of what we can offer $-wise.

I'll be very surprised if Parise signs with the Pens.


#2311689 Red Wings Sign G Jonas Gustavsson to 2-year deal, $1.5M/yr

Posted by Dabura on 01 July 2012 - 11:41 AM

Smokie! I called this a month ago.

I like, I like.


#2311508 Paul Gaustad re-signs with Predators

I trust Kenny realizes he'll have to over-pay if he wants to acquire anyone....
