#2306890 Message to Ken Holland...

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 12 June 2012 - 09:25 AM

Excellent point...You make a good case to wait for next year when he's unrestricted...

However...there is one scenario we haven't thought about... Nashville trading Shea Weber for multiple players at the trading deadline. It happened with Eric Lindros... hence the might Colorado Avalanche were created under Patrick Roy.

Now this I could see a team like Nashville doing.

#2306838 Red Wings Prepared to Offer Hudler Contract

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 11 June 2012 - 10:58 PM

Doan will likely retire in PHX, Semin is a glorified Hudler that will costs a lot more, Kostitsyn-LOL see Semin.

CBJ won't trade with us, Flyers have a HUGE hardon for Nash.

J,Stall will likely go to Canes'.

Perry? First I heard his name in trade talks.

Iginla, maybe but I wouldn't give up much but my guess is Flames MGMT will price him out of Detroit.

Well s*** lets all just jump off this sinking ship to the penguins. We will not get anything because our club sucks and players even hate the mention of the Detroit Red Wings. We have no chance in signing anyone. Our management sucks,our current players suck. Lids thought we sucked that's why he left. Players do not want to come to Detroit...I mean look at the city for gods sake....... :rolleyes:

#2306585 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 11 June 2012 - 10:42 AM

This was gonna happen either way...so far, it is all going to plan...

1. Cap went up!

2. Lids hung them up! (ya this was a bit to swallow, but geesh, folks on here (including me) were saying not too long ago that LIds either needs to take $2.0M or retire. So there ya go, he retired)

3. Stuart left.

...now we will see if the plan keeps going or if it has to change drastically. Bottom line, if Holland does indeed throw the wallet at Suter/Parise and he doesn't get them, its because they didn't want to be here and I think that is the ONLY way they aren't in Wings jersey's next season. I son't think their current clubs can out bid Detroit...Jersey for it's financial woes and Nashville because of Rinne's dumb ass contract and Weber needing to be signed...Speaking of Nashville, would anyone want Tootoo here for that 4th line hitter/grinder? Just curious...

Much as I hated him a few years ago it seems he has changed his game up a bit but is still a good hitteer/grinder. I think I would be just fine with him on the 4th.

#2301302 Babcock and Holland want to keep Homer.

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 14 May 2012 - 02:31 PM

Nah, not a biggie. I only complain when people neg for no reason. I would take 3000 negs if folks had the nuts enough to explain why they disagree. Whatever... It's just funny when people say Homer is too old and needs to go, they get a plus, then I agree and get a neg. Sure, maybe it bothers me more than it should, but if folks would say why, it would be nice. But, ya, I should know by now, they won't and it shouldn't bother me...

No it wouldn't be nice. Because then it would turn into 3000 posts debating that said reason they negged someone. To me I think it's sort of dumb to have a plus minus because it does nothing but cause these sort of issues. If you notice the people that get negged the most are the people who complain about it the most. Nothing against you or anyone else but that's just what I see.

But on the subject. If signing homer to a lot less with less ice time gets us another year of Zeus (Lids) on the team then I say why have we not already signed them both. I know of players on the current and past teams that have been a lot worse that we all love/ed.

#2265010 2/28 GDT : Red Wings 5 at Blue Jackets 2

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 28 February 2012 - 10:20 PM

i would LOVE to see bertuzzi have a great game without datsyuk...we all know that is not happening.

What I would love is for you to post something positive for once and stop being so negative and baiting. But like you with Bert we all know that will never happen right?

#2259771 Canucks Vs Detroit in Motor City

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 21 February 2012 - 03:01 PM

Entertaining literary calisthenics? :rolleyes:

The fact of the matter is the game obviously means something to you. But you and your other Canucks friend still haven't acknowledged that these teams have played each other three times already this season. And even if Vancouver does win then it means they split the series with Detroit again this year. Yet this game somehow is the one that counts? You're right in that it's a matter of professional pride, just like it would be not to lose to Columbus. Because they're professional hockey players. They take professional pride in not losing hockey games.

So far you're staying true to form for a Canucks fan. Condescendingly telling fans of other teams the "truth" about hockey and being so self involved that you can't imagine your own view of the hockey world isn't fact. The general subtext of your posts is that Vancouver is so special of course this game means a lot to Detroit and its fans. The reality for the Wings fans I know, is it just isn't. The vancouver games have made for some really entertaining regular season hockey, but it's still just another regular season game in the stretch run.

I don't know if the Vancouver media somehow is playing this up to be a big deal or if it's your own creation, but it's getting comical. It's like in years past when the Blues would talk about the huge rivalry in Detroit, when to Wings fans it wasn't even in the top 5.

Was it bad of me to of seen the Nashville game had more importance than the Nucks game? I mean they are the Nucks..... :rolleyes: But in all seriousness I really don't feel this is a big game. I like watching these 2 teams play each other because there is a lot of skill on the ice but In no way do I stop and say "man this one is a touchstone game, we have to win this one" Not sure that I have ever seen that with a nucks game in regular season play.

My response was aimed solely at the "blaming" comment. It's one thing to set up such a site, but another to then complain when the copyright owner steps in and exercises their legal rights.

I really didn't see him as complaining. I think it was more of just letting people know why it wasn't there anymore and to thank people for using it. But that's just how I read it.

#2259163 Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game.

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 19 February 2012 - 10:37 PM

you think that was me? i hate the sharks.

don't quit your day job, columbo.

You both have the same 5 year old writing style at times so I just figured. Oh well Sorry there bud.
