#2551554 Doggone it Danny Cleary

Posted by F.Michael on 24 November 2014 - 03:24 PM

Not surprising...Danny more or less 'grew up' in Detroit after he bombed in Chicago/Edmonton/Phoenix.

 

Even though his best playing years are behind him; I could see him as part of the Wings organization down the road.




#2550134 CBJ's Jack Johnson files for bankruptcy

Posted by Jesusberg on 20 November 2014 - 11:28 AM

He's an idiot? Really?

I can't speak for anyone else, but the last person in this world I'd expect to screw me over financially is my mother. It's one thing to be awful with money, but what they did with his money goes beyond being financially irresponsible - they milked the **** out of him. They treated him like a cash cow and ran his debt into the ground. The amount they spent/lost has more to do with their greed and taking advantage of a situation than it does with making smart decisions. Disgusting on their part.

The one good thing for Johnson here is that he still has 7-8 good years left of earning potential. 




#2548783 Former Wings coach/GM Bryan Murray has stage 4 cancer

Posted by number9 on 13 November 2014 - 11:42 PM

I'm a cancer survivor myself. I was fortunate to catch mine early, but it still took 2 surgeries and 2 years out of my life. What Murray is facing is something I can't imagine. I would've vacated my job by now if I was him. But he's a stronger man than me. Goodluck to him and his family.


#2547699 Red Wings Central Closing Down (completely) Nov. 7th

Posted by drumnj on 06 November 2014 - 07:05 PM

Back in September Matt (different Matt) said he was no longer doing articles and write-ups on prospects on Red Wings Central.  At the time he said that the forums would stay up, but a week ago he posted that they were being closed as well.  I didn't see anything posted here about it, HFboards had a farewell thread at the time.  I do have to say it was one of the better assesment sites for Wings prospects, especially the rankings.

 

Some of you may be familiar with the forums there, as it was pretty laid back...well since there was little to no moderation (so quite the opposite as here).  I would assume he's going to dedicate all his time to CapGeek (if you didn't know a Wings fan runs it) and everything will be pretty much frozen in time.  Just thought a post here wouldn't hurt as we are losing an exclusively Red Wings blog/news/forum site.




#2547659 Leafs' Ashton suspended 20 games for violating PED policy

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 November 2014 - 04:40 PM

 This league is so ridiculous it's not even funny:

 

slam someone through the glass...$ 2.500 fine when you are making 14.000.000 a year

spear someone...$ 5.000 fine for a 6 mill per player

slam an opponents face on the ice...14 games

using performance enhancing help...20 games

 

 

summary: f*** you NHL the whole front office needs to get cross checked by Steve Macintyre so they'll go back to their greedy, non integrity life.

Posted by Echolalia on 31 October 2014 - 09:21 PM

6-2-2 for a month that we were suppose to be very bad in

 

With the Wings its never the elite opponents I worry about.   Its the Florida Panthers of the NHL that usually do us in.

#2538666 Blast from the Past

Posted by Son of a Wing on 06 October 2014 - 11:04 PM

So I was going through a bunch of my Dad's old things and stumbled upon one of his NHL contracts from the Red Wings lying in between the pages of an old program.

 

I've never seen an NHL contract before (let alone from the 70s) and thought it was interesting and that I would share for others interested as well.

 

The salary and bonuses give an interesting perspective in comparison to today.  The average salary (according to the HHOF) in 1970 was $18,000.

#2537774 9/29 Exhibition GDT : Maple Leafs 0 at Red Wings 3

Posted by Echolalia on 29 September 2014 - 09:11 PM

Mrazek is making shutouts his thing. 3 shutouts in 9 games last year. I don't know what he's played in the preseason this year but at least one full shutout so far.

good Interview with Dats

 

http://www.freep.com...09/23/16098121/

 

Dats: "I got hit in to the galsses.

Helene St.James: "How do you feel?"

Dats: "Better ask how glasses feel"

...

HSJ: "how do you think Darren Helm looks today?"

Dats: "He is ready for Halloween"

 

Least he is in good spirits.
