@Real_ESPNLeBrun: Wings still waiting to hear on Weiss to see if they got him or not

Dan Cleary watch, you say?


Found it.



#2426698 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by Travis on 05 July 2013 - 12:00 PM

I agree that Weiss has more points... but he's pretty injury prone... Both of these guys are underacheivers however, Flip already knows the system... Weiss needs a sniper, and Brunner would have been that guy, but word is, he's gone and we filled Brunner's spot with a 40 year old.


With the exception of last season he's played at least 74 games a year since being a full time NHLer. Injury prone he is not.

Clowe is getting his Scrooge McDuck on at this very moment.

#2426390 Wings in on Alfredsson

Posted by Travis on 05 July 2013 - 10:04 AM

So does everyone hate this because of the age, possible term, or money?  I guess because (I haven't watched ANY Sens games) I was always under the impression Alferdsson was still decent.  If so for a year contract, I don't think 3.5 would be bad.


reading other boards, it seems that Bos fans and Sen fans still want him, so take that for what it's worth as well. 


My concern is that, at $3.5, the Red Wings could sign someone to bring the youth, size, or speed the team needs. There's nothing wrong with Alfredsson as a signing, but that puts a dent in what's left and yes, age, money, and possible term are all concerns for any player who's over 35.

They're already losing Horton and now Seguin? They'll be a defensive beast but they're losing out big up front.

Eriksson is no slouch.

#2425485 Stoll Taken to Hospital After Suffering Seizure

The idea of seizures terrify me. Hopefully he really is all right.

#2425304 Red Wings won't pursue David Clarkson

Posted by Travis on 03 July 2013 - 09:48 AM

They aren't he will get it from someone, sadly once again it will be from the DRW


They'll get it, but it's a crazy salary demand for a guy with a couple of good years under his belt. Sure, he could be a late-blooming star in the making, but he could also be a product of his system. I don't want Kenny to spend $42 million against the cap to find out.


The Flyers' successes in swinging for the fences should be an indication of how well these large and unstable contracts work.

#2425294 Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Posted by Travis on 03 July 2013 - 09:34 AM

One last thing for the night.


Some of these guys want roster spots.


It shouldn't be overlooked that Tatar has said flatly that he has no intention of spending another season in the AHL.

#2425166 Penguins re-sign Pascal Dupuis

$60 million for 19 players occupied for next year and $48 million already occupied by 8 players the season after next.

An acquaintance of mine created a Dan Cleary Drinking Game, one of the rules state that you must finish your drink whenever Dan Cleary scores a goal.


Through the grapevine Dan Cleary somehow heard about this game and sent all of them glasses and autographed photos that said, "Drink up".

#2424808 Report: Red Wings out on Lecavalier - signs with Philly 5@4.5 per

Posted by Travis on 02 July 2013 - 04:06 PM

I kinda got use to that Ken is gonna pay only for the current and former Wings players.5M/5y is a fair deal assuming freaking Hudler got 4M/5y.


I don't think Jay Feaster's moves are a good measuring stick.
