Poile says he's "Not Trading Suter" via Pierre LeBrun on Twitter.

I'm so glad the Nash trade to Nashville didn't go through. Not only would that keep him in our division but even worse, it would likely seal the deal for both Weber and Suter to stay in NSH given their owner would essentially be giving the green light to become a cap team.

so i never said it...thanks.

glad we cleared that up.

Congrats, you're the first person in history to believe they can insinuate, then back-track and proclaim they didn't say anything. You're not fooling anyone.

I'm done with this futile and childish conversation. Grow up and quit pouting.

i said this...where?


i can't wait to see the wings do absolutely nothing today. so glad they have all that cap space.

When you make comments about having lots of cap space, one can put two and two together. Comments like the above insinuate more than you realize.

You didn't come out and directly say it, but your constant criticism is not only unwarranted, its annoying.

so exactly what was your problem with my statement? i don't want holland to sit on this cap space when the team has obvious needs to address.

do you disagree with that?

or did you want to insult me again? i'd report those posts to a mod, but oh, what a surprise...you are one!

Report me for what? I called you out for acting like a child, because you are in fact....acting like a child.

I don't disagree that the Wings have needs. I do disagree with the way you come across and your simple-minded approach to GM'ing. Just because the Wings have needs (which they do), it doesn't mean Kenny should mortgage the farm for a single shot at the Cup this year. The reason the Wings are perennial Cup contenders is *because* Kenny doesn't give in to the knee-jerk reactions you specifically are calling for.

Understand?

i have a NMC, sorry.



the team has no needs, right? sure.

Did I say the team has no needs? You listen/read as well as a child too.

"Fans" like you are so ignorant and childish. You want a move just for the sake of having one, not necessarily because its the best thing for the team. You're like a child that spends his weekly allowance the day he gets it. Future be damned, just throw away all those picks/prospects to get SFT his f*cking minor toys.

Sometime the best move is not making one, regardless of available cap space.

Sorry for the lack of updates this weekend. I was in the process of drywalling my basement. That being said, I'll be in front of my computer all day and will be updating as fast as possible through the end of the deadline.

friends, i would advise against betting him on it. he will end up asking mods to have your posts deleted to remove the evidence.

Mods don't remove any posts unless they break the forum rules.

Baiting does break the rules. You might want to read up on that one.

Find me any good teammate that has said, "this place sucks, get me out of here". Obviously the financial strains in the Devils won't effect Parise if they offer him the money...but they can't.

I was right about every single UFA and RFA this past summer about not signing here. Holland is predictable and has set trends. Those trends say Parise and Weber are not signing here before or during their primes. Quote me on it. Bet me on it. I want Parise and Weber here as bad as the next person, but it's just not happening.

Those "trends" are because the Wings simply haven't needed to overpay up to this point. When Lids retires, I'd bet anything Holland will do absolutely everything he can to fix the hemorrhage. When guys like Stuart leave, that's what the band-aids are for.

No way in hell Holland all of a sudden goes against the cornerstone of his success in his time here. Defense first, serviceable goaltending and a strong offense: he'll stick to his proven recipe. Meaning, guys like Suter or Weber will be signed before a guy like Parise is. Then whatever money is left, throw at the offense.

#2259315 MAC-SANITY!

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 20 February 2012 - 12:35 PM

I don't see how you can take Joey Mac out of the net until he loses. I like Jimmy, but as Mickey would say, MAC is "hotter than a firecracker" right now. Lets ride J-MAC until he loses a game!

Yeah, what a s***ty job Babcock has night-in and night-out. Hmm....which goaltender that can't do anything but win should I play tonight?


#2259309 Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game.

Fun Fact: Joe Thorton cries more then Cindy Crosby. Someone should re-post the picture of Mule using a light saber to cut off Joe's legs.

That animated gif was the single greatest Photoshop War win of all time.

#2257745 Blackhawks' Losing Streak: Nine Games and Counting

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 17 February 2012 - 12:21 PM

i don't think it's baseless. if i count correctly, vancouver has 8 games remaining against teams in playoff position. detroit has 16.

it will be a much easier road for vancouver to come out on top, but a regulation win on the 23rd would obviously help the wings' chances.

VAN only has 4 games left against teams that are 10 or more points out of the playoff picture (or bubble, if you will).The Wings have the exact same amount. The other teams VAN will be seeing are typically close as can be in skill level to the botom 3-4 current playoff teams and will put up a dog fight night-in and night-out in an attempt to make the playoffs themselves.

Lastly, according to the remaining strength of schedule numbers for the West, the Wings have the 8th most difficult schedule to Vancouvers' 10th. Not a huge difference there.
