#2344387 New Defenseman: Guess who?

Campoli is SOFT and he brings nothing... I would prefer Vandermeer

It's not because we lost, it's because of the WAY that we lost.

#2342584 Wings Looking For Defenseman

Dats is 35... I wasn't impressed with Jones play at WJ and MacKinnon is just too good to pass on.

As soon as he kick Jackman's ass you are going to love him... :)

I agree.  We should get another fighter, preferably on defense.  


It's better to have "forwards" fighters there are "only" 6 def so why would you risk injuries or 5 min penalty?

At least NHL should offer Center Ice for FREE for "whole" season.

#2334509 [Retired] Official Lockout Thread

Posted by Dominator2005 on 21 November 2012 - 06:47 PM

This is how I see it:

They (players) are looking for a new 5 year deal. (This is completly BS - they should more look at 10 years).
According to Fehr (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=409972), the gap is about $180 millions.

Now, let's divide the gap ($180 mil.) with 5 (years new deal) it's a differential of $36 millions per year.

There are approx. 700 players in NHL, let's divide $36 millions by 700, we have a differential of $51 428,00 per player/per year.

Average salary in NHL is about $2.4 millions (http://ca.sports.yah...ug=ycn-10423863) so I guess that $51 428,00 (a little bit more than 2% of their respective salary) is not that big deal... but then again, I'm just a hockey fan... who cares about hockey fans today?

Eaves, Brunner?????

#2316809 Ken Holland, Post-Scotty Bowman

Posted by Dominator2005 on 07 July 2012 - 04:33 PM

Why is he being graded for his time post-Bowman?

Bowman was nothing but a consultant, with little to do with the day-day running of the Wings from 2002-2008. For all intent and purpose he was essentially retired.

This is like grading him for what he's done since Lidstrom retired.

He wasn't just a consultant - when Detroit traded for Schneider it was his call, Holland didn't wanted to trade Avery... This was a Bowman's team... Kenny was a consultant to Bowman....

#2315034 Has the Detroit diamond lost it's shine?

Posted by Dominator2005 on 04 July 2012 - 04:47 PM

Has it occured to you that maybe Ilitch wasn't ok with that amount of money? Holland doesn't get to unilaterally make these decisions. 90M was them upping their offer, which Ilitch might not have been crazy about to begin with. I know that we just assume that Ilitch's wealth is unlimited, but maybe things aren't going quite as well these days? Just a thought.

Man people are fast to throw Kenny under the bus.

Well original offer was $80M and then someone (I think it was Ilitch) had increased to $90M.

Kenny wasn't prepared to live without Lidstrom. What will be next step... he will bring Lilja back and overpay for Carle...

2 years ago he could have Bogosian for Hudler and Ericsson but he denied that trade because he wants to have veterans... Why Sammy is back? Why we can't give a chance to Nyquist and Brunner on the 2nd line??? I don't care if we are going to win 60 games or 45 games. Time has changed, YOU NEED TO TRUST to your young players. We are looking at Doan as a savior (he's 35) but why Kenny opted for Emmerton instead of a Milan Lučić?! He was supposed to make this team bigger and tougher... "tough addition" is Jordan Tootoo - WTF!!!!!

#2312681 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by Dominator2005 on 02 July 2012 - 10:01 AM

I hated Sammy as much as the next guy, but I'm actually ok with this now...he's definitely an upgrade over Hudler (who I hate more), and for less than was offerered to Hudler. At least we know he'll shoot the damn puck!

I'm sure that Brunner was supposed to replace Hudler...
This is one of the reason why young players liek Schultz will never sign for Red Wings. Instead of giving a chance to Nyquist and Brunner on the top 2 lines... Kenny is going after 35yo Sammy... Sucked 3 years ago... will suck for the next 2 years...
