#2361832 Kings trade Gagne to PHI

Posted by F.Michael on 27 February 2013 - 08:29 AM

yep you're right Holland never trades picks for players. That must be why we've had 4 first round picks since 2001.

 

Gagne would be hated here, no goals, injured, and a 3.5 million dollar salary. he couldn't really play on the powerplay, never plays on the penalty kill. is a tweener 2nd-3rd liner, that isn't fast, physical, or good defensively.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe in more recent years Holland & Co had traded away late 1st round draft picks for an additional 2nd and/or 3rd round pick.




#2360060 Red Wings to be in an Eastern conference in latest NHL/NHLPA proposal

Posted by Barrie on 23 February 2013 - 09:47 PM

No thanks, I don't like those 7 and 8 team divisions. Plus I don't like how you only play the teams outside your division only once. All it means is more priority games, and the owners can charge even more for tickets.

 

I still don't understand what's wrong with the 6 divisions. Just move Winnipeg West and Columbus East.

People need to focus on the content of the post, and not the person posting it.

If you don't have anything to add other than a smartass comment, move on and don't post in the thread.

I'm tired of the posts where people are mocking some of the previous overreactions here about free agency. While some people may be overreacting to the state of the Wings, it's at least an honest attempt to discuss the situation. The mocking posts are simply trolling and make the situation even worse.

Stay on topic or people will be getting vacations.

#2317649 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

I wanted the Wings to add some grit, but Tootoo would be about at the bottom of my list.

Dirty player. Questionable defensively.


Don't forget "can't skate" , "poor puck-handler", and lacks discipline.. Jury is out on this one.....


#2317646 Rumor/Report: Semin to sign 1yr deal with Pens

Alexander Semin is on the verge of signing a 1-year deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins, according to a report out of Russia.


Everyone is signing with the Pens....

Holland is failing. He's sitting on his hands while other teams are getting better.

Travelling to Wisconsin to meet with Suter? Being in contact several times with Doan's agent? Hiring a proven NHL Head Coach to fill the vacant Assistant Coach spot?

There's a difference between striking out on free agent offers, and sitting on his hands.

If he signs a one year deal, I'm jumping on the fire Holland bandwagon. I mean wtf man. What's the risk!? One year!? Why in the hell would you just let that cap space rot away!?

Posted by pucktividi on 10 July 2012 - 09:12 AM

I just don't get why Ken and co. are ready to offer 3-year contract to a one guy with on and off ice issues(tootoo) and yet show a middle finger to another one(semin)

And for the record,I approve tootoo signing

Posted by unsaddleddonald on 10 July 2012 - 09:04 AM

Holland is f*cking doped up if he didn't go for semin with a one year deal. what else was he going to use the cap space for? it would be there next offseason with a one year deal. lets hope this is all bulls***.


No kidding. If this is legitimate, then Holland is showing no balls. GMs around the league are leaving him behind when it comes to being aggressive. AND A ONE YEAR DEAL IS AS SAFE AS IT GETS.

We dealt with him holding onto the cash last offseason, we dealt with him holding onto the cash at the deadline, but he can't go that anymore. This team needs a goal scorer. I don't care what kind of baggage he has with him. I don't think we're in a position to turn our noses up to that.

Shane Doan is a really good player; gritty with scoring ability. But adding another 35 year old is not what is going to put this team back into contention.......

It will completely tilt me if he signs a 1 year deal..the reason we were shying away from him is because he apparently wanted a multi year deal..I would take him on a 1 year deal for sure.

But why this time is it one that their fans hate too? I always hated Chelios but I RESPECTED him as a great player. I don't have that feeling about Tootoo at all. A glorified scrub. Why would the Wings sign him????????? I really truly hate this signing.
