#2312383 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by Carman on 01 July 2012 - 08:03 PM

I don't hate Tootoo, I'm thinking about getting his shirt/jersey... the sad thing is that Tootoo is the "big" player that Kenny was thinking about... What about Sammy?

This is sick - he's better to get Suter sign tomorrow...

We still have ~17 million in cap space, and the big fish are still out there.

Why are people freaking out? The Wings aren't going to go into the season with 17 million in cap space.

#2312407 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Sammy is a winner, he helped Florida do well this year he was huge in the playoffs for Van a couple of years ago, he was a playoff performer for us when we had him.

Welcome back Samuelson Im happy to have you back here, you play at both ends of the ice.

#2297136 Thanks, Matt!

Kings and someone else

Technically, we weren't a favorite, let alone the top seed.

Plus we've actually won something in the last 40 years.

It's time to go with the youth and get bigger and stronger. Bert,Homer and Lidstrom all need to retire. Hudler needs to go play in midget league.
Howard needs another goalie to push him for the starting job.

#2247538 Brad Stuart to the West Coast?

Posted by 55fan on 20 January 2012 - 02:29 AM

If memory serves me right, Stuie passed up a better offer from Calgary because he didn't want his step-daughter to have to go through customs alone when she went to visit her dad. Also, the reason for the NTC in part of his stay here was due to not wanting her to have to change schools part way through.

I'm guessing that the original plan was for his wife to come live here, but it didn't pan out. There could be all sorts of reasons- maybe his step-daughter's dad didn't allow it or there were other issues that were out of his hands. I don't know. It's just speculation.

I do know that when I read that about him, that I got a totally new respect for him. A man who puts his family first is a great man in my book.

#2292122 Until the End ...

Posted by jroc86 on 18 April 2012 - 10:09 AM

Lets not forget what happened last year folks - this team is capable of putting together 3 in a row. Unlikely? Aboslutley, but impossible? Absolutley not.

Its more evident than ever that changes need to be made to make Detroit stylistically capable of winning against the big bodied teams. At the end of the day its clear or lack of size/grit/phyiscality just makes this team too damn easy to play against. That said, weve got what weve got. Its up to those 2o guys in that room to get the job done and just get ONE win on Friday. Coming home for 6 and its a series again.

Once again seeing fans at the Joe walking out with 5 minutes left while down 1 goal was disgusting. We have the most spoiled fanbase in pro sports with our continued success and competitiveness and yeah this year certainly isnt the best team we've ever iced - and Im sure weve all been hearing the "too old, too slow, too soft, no goaltending banter" from our friends/colleagues lately. That CANT be Lidstroms last game at JLA - ths teamplays best when their backs are against the wall, and I expect to see a great effort in a few days and a few bounces are bound to go our way.<br class="Apple-interchange-newline">

i don't get the whole twitter or tweet thing, but it seems to be a good way to get up to date news.

The very reason I joined, and have never looked back. My life would be so hollow without an email saying I have a new follower. Much like it would be if people stopped +1-ing my posts on here... Ahhh who am I kidding?! NOONE plus ones my posts on here :(
