Trade him

Thank you. I'm thrilled Sammy walked, seriously. Thought he was way overvalued.

At his skill level and likely other options, he was most likely entitled to that statement.

I rather have Sammy at $2.5M than Hudler at $2.8M

...and it's likely that even with their movement clauses up, neither of those guys are going anywhere.

...I was educating you.

Sit Hudler and put Miller back in.

Raf is back w00t Not sure if I like him with Big E though. Miller sits again grrrr

#2058099 Franzen will play tonight; Hudler will also

Seems, that Eaves will sit tonight!

Even with him injured I rather him play instead of Miller. Helm and Eaves on the PK is sexy.

Those are some s***ty angles of the hit in that video.

#2056406 Trade proposal

.... 9GP.


I'm thinking trade deadline. Having someone with a $2.8M cap hit sitting is a waste.

Break up the third line please and thank you.

#2050834 The Third Line

Posted by dragonballgtz on 22 October 2010 - 03:35 PM

10% of a season isn't that significant. In 2008, we lost 10 out of 11 games which included a 6 game losing streak. If I remember correctly, that season ended pretty good for us. :cool:

That 10% for any team can mean the difference of not making the playoffs or making the playoffs by a point or more. A s***ty start to a season can be difficult to overcome for anyone. Eight games is 16 points, so lets say the 07 Avs won at least 2 of those eight games which would put them at 99 points for that season which would mean playoffs. Hell just one would of done it.

To say one game or even 10% of the season is not significant is absurd. Especially in the start every point earned makes it that much more important coming down the stretch. Giving coaches the ability to rest some guys down the stretch because you don't have to play catch up makes it more evident that every game counts. Every once in awhile you will hear Murphy talk about how Bowman wanted to start every season strong because he knew the importance of starting the season off strong.

The reason Modano was brought into Detroit was to center the third line and give it some scoring punch. You can't give up on it after 6 games. 10% is of the season is not that significant. The first 10% is less significant. The NYI and Leafs are two of the best teams in the conference right now. What if the Wings gave up on Howard after his first 6 games last year? Patience is a virtue my friend. Its not like the Wings are 0-6 here.

Any part of the season start, middle, or end is significant.

Hating the Joe is not jealousy... it does stink, especially on the outside across the street from the main entrance. I love the Joe and all but it needs to go.

#2049272 Illitch "definitely committed" to new downtown arena

Posted by dragonballgtz on 19 October 2010 - 12:44 PM

Of course he expects them to pay. That's why he bought the Pistons. He's using the threat of moving the Wings to the suburbs as leverage for city funding for a new rink.

With The Wings and Pistons playing in metro Detroit you get 10,000+ people in that area 100 times a year, spending money. Like Illitch, the city needs to invest in order to stimulate the economy.

The man loves Detroit. If he wants a new rink, I say help the guy out. It will be good for the city and good for long-term revitalization.

I would rather the City put more cops on the streets then help a building out. I understand the need for a new arena but when it comes down to it the City has bigger issues it needs to address first...like stated security, schools, streets, abandon buildings and other things.

I sure hope he does not expect for the City of Detroit to pay for some of it like they did for Comerica Park. If the City was healthy I would be for it but it can barley pay for public services let alone paying for part of a new stadium.

The 4th line worked hard all game long. Nice to see them get rewarded.
