#2193346 Jackets sign Wisniewski: 6-years $33-million ($5.5m/yr)

Posted by KrazyGangsta on 01 July 2011 - 10:03 AM

Wisnieksi for 5.5 is way overpayment, thank god he signed with Columbus and not us.


#2193256 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by KrazyGangsta on 01 July 2011 - 08:51 AM

WoW I've never seen a signing that has caused LGW to go this crazy.

I just don't get what's the bad part about signing Ericsson. Sure, he didn't perform to his expectancy but the his still 27, 6-4 and 220 ... which I really don't mind having. I really think he will pan out to be a good defenseman eventually if we hire a defensive coach that can groom him better then Brad McCrimmon did.

Did you guys forget his first playoffs when he stepped him and everyone was happy (The Year We Won The Cup. The following year, Brad McCrimmon stepped in as defensive coach ... the defense has never been the same since his arrival. IMO, his poor play / poor play of defense has more to do with Brad McCrimmon then anything else. It would be a real shame if he did go to another team with a better defensive coach and pan out to be a good player, then everyone would be complaining on how Holland let that slip by.

I could be possibly be wrong, Ericsson might just lack the level to play in the NHL but that one we won't be able to tell for at least 1 more year (with a new D. coach).

IMO, there are no quality FA's this year and if Holland didn't sign anyone and brought the kids up to play I would be very happy. The only FA that would of interested me is Wisnieski but please Kenny don't overpay him.


#2192895 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by KrazyGangsta on 30 June 2011 - 09:26 PM

I think the Defense coaching had more to do with the poor play of our defense and the growth of Ericsson then his actual play. IMO since our D coach has changed, this team's defense has never been the same. IMHO if we can grab a decent defensive guru that can groom the upcoming kids and just put Ericsson back into line, this could be a good signing.

Until then this signing is nothing more then a desperation / backup signing by Holland. After Wisnieski, I don't see any other defensman that is young and that would even interest me. So having Ericsson back isn't that bad after all.

hudler is not worth 2.8 million.... please try to trade him to NYI for nabokov, straight up. thank you


You Crazy????????? Hell, trade Hudler to NYI for a bag of hockey pucks.


#2188090 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

Jagr 39 > Hudler (in his prime ... if he ever does get a prime)


#2178963 Very Sad To See

Posted by KrazyGangsta on 24 May 2011 - 08:54 AM

It's very sad to see that some Red Wings players will eventually retire.

* Rafalski - Retired
* Lidstrom - Last Year / Retiring
* Holmstrom - Last Year?
* Kris Draper - Last Year
* Ozzie - ???

I know Modano is retiring too but in my heart his not a real Red Wing.

Worst part is that all of the above players are probably the key components for our stanley cup success.

I'm really going to miss all of them.


#2052783 I keep having this reoccurring nightmare...

Posted by KrazyGangsta on 26 October 2010 - 08:13 AM

Your not the only one dreaming of this, I was having this dreams also then I actually realized that Turco is there goalie.

Every dream about the Hawks repeating just choked after that.

#2044942 Kirk Maltby to announce he is retiring

Posted by KrazyGangsta on 12 October 2010 - 06:28 PM

Good to see he retired rather then playing with the Griffins, even tho he could helped out.

This guy was a very important key of the success of this franchise. He played a crucial role, shutting down the opposing top lines.

Shame on all those fans that are being negative about this situation. The reason he signed the contract was to compete for a roster spot, didn't work out but we can never blame the guy for trying.

Hope all the best in the near future Maltbs, maybe he could now join us on LGW and discuss hockey.


#2044093 Filppula

Posted by KrazyGangsta on 11 October 2010 - 12:38 AM

IMO for the past years we've watched Filppula, this is probably the only year that I see fire in him. I feel like he just wants to take control of the team and be the best player on this team.

His matured and seems to me he will have his best season thus far, I'm loving the intensity level his at right now.


#2023958 Lukas Krajicek

Please Kenny pass on this one.


#2016667 Sergei Federov

Posted by KrazyGangsta on 19 July 2010 - 07:02 AM

As we all know when Federov left his game went to the decline and by looking his stats his defensive game has dropped with having all +/- below 0 for his last seasons.

I was wondering tho, do you guys think that Federov's career would of ended better if he had indeed sticked with the Wings or it would of had been the same, production drop?


#2015527 Osgood may retire following this season

Posted by KrazyGangsta on 15 July 2010 - 07:09 PM

I for one would like to see Osgood stick around for 1 or 2 more seasons as backup, enough time for McCollum to groom in the AHL. At this point I'd probably keep Ozzie as the backup over anyone in the league.

It's good for him too, instead of staying home he can get a pay :).


#2015522 Mikko Koivu stays with Wild

Posted by KrazyGangsta on 15 July 2010 - 07:07 PM

Minnesota = Fail ... what a waste of money 7 million is way too much, would of been better spent if they had let Koivu walk and grab Kovalchuk at least the guy can score 50.


#2013758 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by KrazyGangsta on 11 July 2010 - 09:09 AM

I would love for Modanno but if he doesn't join us I really wouldn't care. The only person that will be the loser here is Modanno.

Modanno signing was probably for marketing reasons more then anything.

As I stated if Modano decides to go else where well too bad for him because it's his only chance to play with one of the greatest franchises in the NHL. His loss not ours we have tons of kids willing to center the 3rd line.
