#2311306 i hope we dont panic if suter and parise signs elsewhere

Another Parise and Suter thread?! Good lord!

#2311267 Biron back in New York

Posted by Hockey13Playa on 29 June 2012 - 08:29 PM

Wish Detroit could of landed him for a backup. I've always like him, he's a solid backup! However I knew the Rangers would re-up him. His agent stated he loved working with Henrik and New York city.

#2311266 CRAZZZZYYY Roster Idea

Posted by Hockey13Playa on 29 June 2012 - 08:27 PM

Wow, when you put it that way... what a well thought out, in depth, eloquent thought... you've really shed a whole new light on it... :glare:

Thank you, thank you thank you, you are far to kind!

Just to put a smile on your face I will say this, JB is over payed and over rated I think. I think his spark of greatness is gone. As for Iginla he's awesome but older, and not worth giving up two first rounders to get him. I wouldn't mind him on our team if it only costed us middle tier talent (even lower end draft picks). You are smiling now right...! :D

#2310047 Shanahan snubbed from HoF induction

Posted by Hockey13Playa on 26 June 2012 - 12:34 PM

Plain and simple, short and sweet:


JERSEY RETIRED: NO (Not in Detroit anyways)

Great player but I don't think he met the criteria to hang in the rafters with the elites. If you retired Shanahan's jersey just think of all the other wings that should "technically" then be retired as well...

#2309733 Garth Snow...

Posted by Hockey13Playa on 25 June 2012 - 12:51 PM

This isn't a rumor; it is infact true. Here is another link to verify it: http://www.cbssports...t-for-no-2-pick

What a hefty price to move up two spots in the draft. If I was an Islanders fan and Howson accepted this, I think I would want Snow to be beheaded. That is just absurd. I don't see Snow's logic in jumping two spots... Defensive heavy draft... There was tons of talent.

s***, I think Pitt got the better deal in that trade. I like Staal, but wow! I forgot that Pitt drafted Morrow last season....

...Hey Holland, if Shero can trade Staal, you can trade Franzen...come on....Bobby Ryan is out there and wants out of Anaheim...

YEP!!!!! I agree!!!!!
Bobby Ryan on trade talks: "At this point, I don't care. Move me"


#2308843 Top Swiss-leaguer Brunner to sign with Wings, Babcock has big plans

Posted by Hockey13Playa on 22 June 2012 - 04:24 PM

Ok...here is my $70M roster including Brunner (dunno what his salary will be, so I just put $1M to be safe) and my above proposed week of ecstasy with acquiring Ryan (Schultz) along with scoring Suter/Parise....

I traded away Franzen, Mursak, Emmerton & Kindl...not all for Ryan, but I got rid of these guys none-the-less... Of course I am still adamant about siging DeKeyser and Welsh, So until it DOESN'T happen then I will continue to post it! :lol: I now have put Montoya as Howard's back-up...

Zach Parise ($8.000m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m)
Gustav Nyquist ($0.875m) / Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Bobby Ryan ($5.100m)
Damien Brunner ($1.000m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m)
Danny Cleary ($2.800m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.250m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m)
Drew Miller ($0.838m) / Jeremy Welsh ($1.100m) /

Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Ryan Suter ($8.000m)
Ian White ($2.875m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Brendan Smith ($0.875m) / Justin Schultz ($1.100m)
Danny DeKeyser ($0.825m) /

Jimmy Howard ($2.250m)
Al Montoya ($1.000m)

SALARY CAP: $70,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $67,070,833; BONUSES: $37,500
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $3,229,167

That roster is HOTTTT! However with that being said, I think that is just the dream roster. I can totally see Parise and Suter, but I don't see Holland trading for Ryan. He just doesn't seem to pull off trades that have a huge impact like that. I mentioned in another topic I want him to pull a blockbuster though! Like when we acquired Hasek. He needs to do something big, show the NHL that the Wings don't f*ck around! :D

#2308790 Flyers Trade Bobrovsky to Columbus

Posted by Hockey13Playa on 22 June 2012 - 01:34 PM

the flyers have so much young talent and valuable assets such as picks it drives me nuts. So jealous. Expect them to move up in the draft using JVR or their first, 2nd, cbj 2nd to get a top 10 pick. fml. another couturier to add to the stable. I wish we had the assets to move up that easily.

With the Flyers as my second favorite team after Detroit that is one thing I love about them. They got their core talent but have all those young guys just waiting to emerge; with Read and Couturier being the top two. I am right there with you though; I wish the Wings had some assets or some balls to move into the top ten and grab some of that high end talent!

I love the NHL draft, get to see that first overall pick, players who get picked considerably higher/lower then expected, the block buster trades! Love it! Next comes free agency! Great time of the year (besides the actual season).

#2308537 Pavel and his girlfriend at the NHL Awards

Posted by Hockey13Playa on 21 June 2012 - 05:55 PM

The picture from the NHL Awards and then the rest of the pictures from the parade and what not don't even look close to the same woman... :confused1: Am I missing something here?

Posted by Hockey13Playa on 20 June 2012 - 11:56 AM

I am basing my 1.5 estimate on Harding's 1.9. I haven't seen much of the Isles but it seems Montoya has played well enough to be considered. Roloson would be a good choice but he is old. He would have to take a massive paycut as he was making around 3.5.

Roloson? :blink: Yikes, like you mean DWAYNE ROLOSON?! Lol!

Sorry but no thanks. If it came to him or what we got, I'd rather stick with Joey MacDonald. Roloson is what, 42 years old now? I wouldn't want to risk signing him.

1. Nobody gave LA a chance at the beginning of the year when they were struggling. If you need proof, google it. You're a big boy now, I'm sure you can find it all by yourself.

2. Well, it starts at the bottom. Better prospects. 6 or 7 of which will be turning pro this season. Then you look at the core group. There aren't any real superstars yet they still managed to lead the league in points for a 1/3 of the year. In the end, injuries killed their top 6 and they had no depth and could not recover. If you take the injuries out of the equation, maybe the Wild could have been a playoff team I don't know. Then you look at Detroit. Average prospects. 2 or 3 might turn into something but certainly won't be the caliber of a Datsyuk, Zetterberg or Lidstrom. Even if everything goes right with the prospects we currently have, we're still looking at a bunch of players who couldn't come close to standing up to the superstars that we have now. 3 straight years of early playoff exits, a core group with only 1 player under the age of 30, no 1st round pick this year, no Lidstrom. We're on a path right now where things are only going to get worse in Detroit if major changes aren't made starting with the young talent. Meanwhile, Minnesota has top prospects, a good YOUNG core and money to spend in free agency just like us. All signs point to a changing of the guard and we need to do everything we can to start lessening the blow that will be losing Datsyuk and Zetterberg in a few years.

1. Never said I wasn't a big boy but LA is in a TOTALLY different stratosphere then the garbage Wild are. People never wrote LA off from the beginning of the season either. Maybe after mid season when they were looking outside in everyone started to question them, but to compare there situation with the wild is ludicrous.

2. What did I tell you about those stupid pills? You must of upped your dosage last night. I almost stopped reading after the underlined/bolded part above. You just got done saying Minnesota has the deepest prospect poll and so many "above average guys" then why on God's green earth when some of the top 6 were injured didn't they call up/sign some of this "world class" talent? I like how you call the wild prospects superstars when they haven't even played in the NHL, dude you aren't a "NHL fan first and foremost" you are just DUMB. And 3 early playoff exists doesn't really do justice for your argument. Look at the three seasons before then and its a whooooole different game. Please tell me how the WIld are doing with playoff success? You got Dany f***in Heatly bro, the holy grail, yeah man! We don't need first round picks, you ever wonder why we are so good? Look at our drafts dude. We own! Just to help out my case here take a look a the 2002 NHL draft:

Jiri Hudler- 58th, Tomas Fleischmann- 63rd, Valterri Filppula- 95th, Derek Meech, Jonathan Ericsson- 291st. That is just in one year, all those players are NHL players and none in the first round, Hudler was 2 picks away from being a 3rd rounder. Ericsson was the last pick in the entire draft. Now I am not saying all those guys are "superstars" like you like to throw around so loosely but they are al NHL regulars, and Filppula the best of the bunch. Now mind you this is ONE draft, I can go on an on about gems we take in later rounds. So that first round pick you mention doesn't mean dick all. Yeah yeah yeah things are going to get worse in Detroit, just like everyone thought when Yzerman was gone, and Shanahan. The world was over and Detroit would be outside looking in. All those old guys suck!!! Well how's 21 straight years off playoff hockey sound? Pretty good, we'll be fine. Detroit is one of the best run organizations in the league, if not the best. And you think Parise is going to Minnesota because they will "offer the most money without a doubt" then you are flippin' crazy because there is no way in hell he wants to sign a long term contract with a team that is not on the uprise. So go back and get your facts straight, look up the definition of NHL superstar, does some research on Red Wings drafting, lay of those stupid pills, come down off cloud 9, and then MAYBE you will understand a little bit more with what's going on!

The same was said about the LA Kings last summer by the so called "experts". Id say Minnesota is in a better spot to win for years to come than Detroit. And it's not even close.

1. Lets see an article or something proving this or something.

2. Please tell me how Minnesota is in a better spot to win then Detroit?

3. You need to stop taking stupid pills, they are quite bad!

#2307777 Red Wings Prepared to Offer Hudler Contract

Posted by Hockey13Playa on 18 June 2012 - 12:11 AM

How do you guys feel about maybe trading Hudler's rights? Seeing as how the free-agent pool isn't going to be very deep, and guys who can score 20-30 goals/year don't grow on trees, you'd think someone would be willing to give a 2nd round pick(maybe 1st round pick if Kenny really works his magic)

EDIT: assuming Hudler has his sights set on $4+ mill/year

No way. Not for rights; especially Hudler's.
