#2019412 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 26 July 2010 - 01:25 PM

ROUND AND ROUND

why not just trust Holland and stop making it sound like after all these years all of a sudden he doesn't know what he's doing. I'm sure ultimately he will not screw up the chance to sign Helm and Abby to long term deals. Even if they take a year this year and sign the big one next. They know what they are doing guys more so then any of us.

Modano's +/- last three seasons were -6, -13, -11...is that what the Wings want to add? Holland says they have done well with veterans in the past, but our team is full of experienced guys who have all been to the big dance once or twice. All I see Mike adding might be increased ticket sales with the Michigan native thing.

wow did you look at all his other stats and not just a stat that depends on the team around him?

Some people remind me so much of the project managers and data analyst here at dell. they only pull data that somewhat supports the crap they are trying to say and they leave out everything else. never really looks at the whole picture.

Passion counts in everything you do in life. If your a fry cook with passion you could be the best fry cook in the world. Saying Farve has no passion is like saying Yzerman has no passion. I just cannot agree with you here.

Agreed...Look at sponge bob :D

Thanks I am a funny guy. Helm looks like a guy waiting to emerge to me. He has all the tools. I think he could even play a support role on a scoring line, with all that speed and forechecking ability. He may never get that chance here since it seems like we want him to go backwards instead of forwards.

Why might we lost Ritola for nothing? Well, in hockey there are 12 forward, have you looked at our roster if you add Modano, Helm and Abdelkader? Do the math if you can?


I've had my say, no point in arguing around in circles with the clones. It's a beautiful day, I'm going outside.

yeah its good to call us names because 95% of hockey fans don't agree with you. that works.you may have watched the games but check out his stats for the past 5 years. now add those to a team like detroit....or do YOU not know how to read stats? maybe you should go outside and get some fresh air cause it seems you have been inside to long. ;)

Just wondering: would Modano & Tampa be a match? Bolts have to fill out their bottom 2 lines & Mike's $ value fits their budget.

from twitter

it be funny if stevie swoops in and plucks modano lol

If it was anyone else i would be pissed but if yzerman/TB did it i would laugh so hard.

modano would sign 1 year 1.25, not 2 years if he did sign



Is that what he told you when you were eating lunch with him today? ;)

#2006141 Darren Archibald Invited To Camp

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 28 June 2010 - 12:41 PM

I'm of the thinking that if a goalie wants to sit on the puck behind the net like alot of them do and use their big pads to block out the players then they should be fair game for a check just like any other player on the team. Yeah they wear big pads and its hard for them to move out of the way so don't go behind the net to stop the puck and sit on it like a goose that layed an egg. But thats just me. My opinion.

#1992382 Lidstrom Signs 1-Year Contract Extension

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 01 June 2010 - 12:19 PM

For the poster that posted that Lids was making 7 million for the past 10 years and couldn't he take a pay cut. Just to let you know Lidstrom has been taking a pay cut his all career to keep this organization intact. Any other team would of paid 8 million and up for Lidstroms services in the past 10 years.

6 million for one year is a good deal IMO. He just took a pay cut of 1.5 million $, will play a major role in the lineup and easily is the best D in the league.

For all those people that are complaining about the pay cut wasn't enough, let me see you guys take a pay cut from your jobs.

well i understand where you are coming from but again most if not all of us don't make 1million dollars or even 100k dollars in our jobs.
