#2531870 Mike Green to Wings?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 12 July 2014 - 06:59 PM

Let me know when they win a Cup as a GM

They have a combined four years on the job. Stevie's team went to the conference final in that span and Tampa Bay might be the favorite in the East heading into next season. Nill got Dallas into the playoffs in the West and has done a great job adding two huge pieces through trades already.

Holland just continues to make lateral moves since those two have left and the Red Wings have no direction under his leadership. Too bad Holland didn't stick to his word and retire when Nick did, so Nill would have gotten the GM job in Detroit before leaving.

As much as I like Holland because what he's done for the Franchise...i have to agree at this point. He made a lot of mistakes over the last years. He's not willing to take risks. Pav and Z will not play forever. He absolutely missed the opportunity to give the youth a chance and add the missing pieces to form a team that can make a push for the cup...

Franchise players are not cheap and they're hard to get. Big trades are always a risk. To trust young players by giving them fixed roster spots is also a risk. But just by resigning and overpaying your useless veterans, you probably won't be able to win anything...

Green isn't worth any of those four with his injury history in recent years. I'll be curious what offers are rumored in the couple months.

Don't worry Kenny's got a firm grip on the wheel.

#2529791 Forum Rules Refresher. PLEASE READ

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 03 July 2014 - 02:17 PM

Since it's the offseason and also because of what's been going on since the free agent signings, it's a good time to remind everyone of some of the forum rules. 

 

I've posted a few warnings in threads but wanted to put a reminder where everyone will see it.

 

 

From the forum rules:

 

· DO post a link reference (or cite the TV/radio source) when reporting breaking news, reports, etc. Threads started without this information may be deleted or moved.

 

When posting a trade or signing, please provide a link to a reputable source as confirmation. This time of year people often make fake twitter accounts so make sure the tweet you're linking to is a verified account from a reputable source.

 

 

· DO post constructively. If you can't add anything meaningful to a discussion, don't bother.

 

Before hitting reply, just take a second to think about what impact your post will have on the discussion.  Is it making it better or worse?

 

 

· DON'T post duplicate topics. Before posting your new thread be sure to check the first two pages of the forum to make sure the topic isn't already being discussed. Multiple violations of this rule by a single member is punishable by temporary suspension from the forums.

 

 

· DON'T post false and/or misleading topics. Members caught doing so will be banned IMMEDIATELY with NO chance of reinstatement.

 

The punishment may seem severe but if people start posting fake trade threads, the forum becomes total chaos.  LGW should be a resource for solid hockey talk and information.  

 

 

· DO refrain from using vulgar language. There is a curse/bad word filter currently on the forum and members that purposely attempt to circumvent this filter will be subject to a suspension of account privileges.

 

No alternate spellings.  No blanking some of the letters.  Let the profanity filter do its job.

 

 

· DON'T personally attack other members. This includes name-calling, flame-baiting, etc.. If you can't discuss your point with maturity then don't discuss it. People that violate this rule will be dealt with swiftly.

 

In short, debate the content of someone's argument, not the person themselves.  

 

This includes broad insults against people on this forum and their level of fandom.  Like it or not, complaining about the Red Wings can be on topic.  If you don't like it, don't read it.  If they've clearly violated forum rules, report it to bring it to a moderators attention.  If you really don't like anything a person here has to say, you can put that member on your ignore list.

 

 

 

As I've said before, this forum relies entirely on content generated from its members.  You are all the authors of this forum, so it will only be as good or bad as you make it.  The ultimate goal of all of these rules is not to punish people, but to make LGW a source of lively, respectful, informed discussion. 

 

Thanks!

#2529165 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by VM1138 on 01 July 2014 - 09:00 PM

This is bad, guys. Quincey actually makes the team worse than if he weren't on it. Going with all kids would have been bad, but not like this. Almost any of the UFA players could have been at least a slight improvement. Did none if them want to come here either? This is a humiliating day for the franchise. Rejected by everyone even with fair offers, only to panic and sign a bad player for too Mich money instead of giving someone else a chance. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

We have cap room so we can bring back Samuelsson. Give him one more chance.

I can't believe Kenny didn't offer more

I can... and actually I am happy he didn't.

When you aren't a premiere destination teams need to overpay some free agents to become more attractive to other free agents. Similar to what the tigers did when they signed pudge. Kenny has done nothing. Again. His best move since the cap was the Hossa signing and that only happened because Hossa called him.

OK, it's 2:00, have the Wings done anything yet? (besides re-signing Sheahan).

Tires are being kicked.  It's rumored.
