#2535793 Detroit offers D Raphael Diaz tryout

Posted by Spongewingredpants on 09 September 2014 - 08:19 AM

local newspaper here in Zug says Diaz figures its his best shot to get on the roster full-time. In addition, there is already Hiller and Bärtschi, who play with him on the national team and Bob Hartley, the Calgary Coach used to coach rival Zug team Zurich. 


I am bummed he didn't try out with the Wings but i get the reasoning. Personally, I hope it works out for him

since i am not a professional athlete or hollywood star, i have no clue. No offence, but that is like asking "who is your favourite cricket player".

#2532593 Kane & Toews Sign Identical 8-year, $10.5M AAV Extensions

Posted by Spongewingredpants on 20 July 2014 - 04:30 AM


That was so aweful...makes Ozzy and Draper look like Daniel-Day Lewis clones. I seriously cant stand Kane in any sense...such a serious wiener.


wow, what an idiotic commercial

#2532529 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

i would like a 1 million $ bonus for showing up to work for 10 days too

#2530810 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by Spongewingredpants on 09 July 2014 - 12:39 PM

two x 10.5 million is nuts in my book but i guess they had no choice


164 million tied up for two players for 8 years. 

#2527142 Ehrhoff or Niskanen

Posted by Spongewingredpants on 30 June 2014 - 10:04 AM

i would like both to be honest. The Wings success in the past always had to do with a good defence corps

#2519246 Now some gritty forwards.

Posted by Spongewingredpants on 05 May 2014 - 10:31 AM

i would prefer scoring forwards and real defensemen

#2488495 Naming the New Arena

Posted by Spongewingredpants on 02 March 2014 - 07:06 AM

I agree with one of the posters but I think "Dan Cleary Arena" has a better ring


The "We Like Our Team Arena"


will there be a "kicking the tires" area in this arena ;-)
