#2014640 RUMOR: Wings Offer 1-year Contract to Maltby

Posted by dragonballgtz on 13 July 2010 - 07:27 PM

The last time Detroit won the Cup without Maltby on the roster is 1955.

Thus, he's a must for our championship hopes.

50 goal junior scorer baby


#2014469 Bettman makes how much?

Posted by dragonballgtz on 13 July 2010 - 12:24 PM

Phoenix is a brand new market, and the team has been AWFUL all 14 years.

I wouldn't say all 14 years. First 4 seasons they made the playoffs but got knocked out in the 1st round by Red Wings, Avs, Blues, and Ducks. Besides the Ducks those were the top teams in the west during those days. Phoenix was never elite but decent...so getting off to a start like that they should of gotten more attention but didn't.


#2014277 Osgood may retire following this season

Posted by dragonballgtz on 12 July 2010 - 09:49 PM

He will be a Hall of Famer, but I don't see him getting in 1st try unless its a weak class. I think the voters will keep in mind the fact his numbers were more a product of the teams he played on and not overwhelming stand out play on his part.

I will agree in a way with that. I still think Ozzie did his part. Hell he might of had 3 SC for being a starter if it wasnt for him getting injured in 98-99 playoffs.

Bill Ranford :ranting: :flamingmad:


#2012764 Brett Lebda signs with Toronto

Posted by dragonballgtz on 08 July 2010 - 04:05 PM

Did you all listen to the radio interview? At the start he makes it clear the Wings really didn't push for his services, they asked but other then that he knew they did not want him. Also the way he sounds in the interview is a respectable tone. George Malik just twisted the interesting words and used them against Lebda. I am not a fan of Lebda in any way (I called Toronto suckers for paying him that much) but lets bash him for telling the truth. There was no room for him and he wanted to play more. He got way more then Detroit would ever give him so I cannot blame him for going to Toronto.


#2012173 Getflaf for Zetter

Posted by dragonballgtz on 07 July 2010 - 05:47 PM

If Getzlaf played the way he did against us in the playoffs two years ago all the time then yes. Wasn't he hurt or had the flu, what ever it was dude was a beast. None of the Wings could move him.


#2011865 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by dragonballgtz on 07 July 2010 - 10:39 AM

Eaves is yet to sign his offer, which was given to him long before Modano was anywhere near a reality, he has his offer, if he wanted to be here he would be. This is not a case of Holland leaving Eaves out in the wind, Eaves knows what the Wings offer is and if he had signed it, the Wings would have less cap space to throw at Modano.

Eaves was a Wing for less than a year, what makes you think he will stay here for years, or even be able to crack the roster in years to come?

That was so they could hold onto his rights. I will bet they just added the 10% to his contract but they knew he would not sign it.

The 1.5 million dollar man is gonna be sitting in the press box if Modano signs. What a waste of cap space

I don't know why I got rated down for this remark but its the truth. Splitting time or not its a waste.

#2011132 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by dragonballgtz on 06 July 2010 - 12:37 PM

so 3 other teams interested in modano eh? hopefully they offer more to him than the wings and he chooses to go elsewhere

:clap:


#2011034 Holland thinks he is close to signing Eaves, Miller, and Meech

Posted by dragonballgtz on 06 July 2010 - 09:33 AM

They can afford to do that because Ritola is, no matter how you look at it, redundant to this team, they got many promising prospects ready in 2 years or so

I would rather have a promising prospect then a 40 year old on the brink of retiring.

#2006580 Modano done in Dallas

Posted by dragonballgtz on 29 June 2010 - 11:29 AM

I must admit I do not know anything about the Stars prospects and this is a new cap world but to me this is a slap in the face to Modano. Let him decide if this is it he has earned that right.


#2000746 How would you feel about Chelios as assistant?

Posted by dragonballgtz on 17 June 2010 - 12:13 PM

Maybe he would teach some of those young kids some dirty little secrets :P


#2000141 Wings sign Ilari Filppula 1yr/$500k

Posted by dragonballgtz on 16 June 2010 - 10:56 AM

In all honestly I don't get this signing. I understand that its Flip's big bro and all but we don't need another playmaker IMO...more of a Drake type or actual scorer. Unless they plan to use him once someone else moves along come 2012 season and if they can afford him by then.
