#2535342 Expansion draft - how many players can each team protect ?

Posted by sibiriak on 01 September 2014 - 07:10 PM

That's kind of foolish. Once this next CBA is up there will be another lockout it's what the PA wants. There isn't any debating it, cause it's going to happen.

If the NHLPA wanted a work stoppage, they could strike. Lockout is, by definition, owners locking the players out.

#2534114 What Might Have Been: Gretzky to Detroit?

Posted by kipwinger on 12 August 2014 - 04:24 PM

 

Sorry what? Stevie Y became captain in 1986…..

 

He's not speaking literally, he's speaking figuratively.  When people nostalgically look back at Yzerman, they remember him how he was in the Bowman years and rarely remember the early part of his career.  He wasn't a selfless, gutsy, two way, leader back then.  He was a showy, one dimensional, goal scorer.  At the time of the Gretzky trade, Yzerman wasn't the Stevie Y that we all remember as "The Captain", though he was in fact the captain of the team. 

 

That's what he's saying.




#2532633 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 20 July 2014 - 12:14 PM

I think it looks amazing. Hopefully it all comes to fruition. I am so thankful that there are people out there who love the city of Detroit as much as I do and who refuse to give up on trying to make it a better place. I will miss the Joe in all its s***ty glory, and hope they don't tear it down. I'd like to see it repurposed, maybe as the aquarium they had talked about at one time, but I know that's probably a pipe dream.

This reminds me of a GDT I did earlier this year called the "Ken Commandments"

Interesting. I was not aware that Garth Snow is also the current GM of the Detroit Red Wings. May God have mercy on us all.  :ninja:

Posted by LeftWinger on 10 July 2014 - 04:39 PM

I said that Cleary would get more than Heatley... f*** this team. f*** Ken Holland. I refuse to watch anymore games.  I don't care if he acquires Shea Weber, I am done supporting this team until Holland is GONE!




#2531139 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by WingsallTheway on 10 July 2014 - 04:09 PM

I seriously think Holland is becoming my most hated person in sports.

 

Actually, he is my most hated person in sports.

 

My roomate is from Nigeria and has watched his first ever hockey games (about 10) with me last season. He laughs that Quincey and Cleary are re signed. 

 

The fact that he understands that these players shouldn't be on the team but Holland doesn't says alot.




#2529297 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by loutswings on 02 July 2014 - 06:06 AM

 
I agree, time for Holland to go.  But now that we've let Nill and Yzerman go to other organizations, we'll probably have to hire someone from outside... which may not be a bad thing.


I think the Front office has got a little too comfortable. Wouldn't hurt to shake things up.

#2529787 Hollands new contract a no brainer?

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 03 July 2014 - 02:08 PM

Holland is the no-brainer, not the contract.

My vote: "I don't know why they're not coming here" because it demonstrates, more than any of the other quotes, just how out-of-touch Holland seems to be. The league might have passed him by.

Fantasy Player Tree

 

"We got seven left-hand D. I love (to have a righty), but how do you get it?" Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said over the weekend at the NHL entry draft in Philadelphia. "It's great to have this fantasy; like (general manager) Kenny Holland would tell you, there's no tree. I've been all over him, but there's no tree to grab them off of, so we'll get what we get."

 

Here...here's your goddamned tree assholes:

#2525495 Wings "in the mix" for Iginla

Posted by kipwinger on 24 June 2014 - 01:47 PM

 

Agreed, but the tendency around here is outrage over signing anyone even approaching the twilight of their career. Iginla contributed 61 pts last year, that's better than most players currently in their prime.

 

Also agreed.  Although I'd caution anyone against thinking would be likely on our team.  I'd be amazed if he put up 50 pts. with our anemic offense. 

 

But sure, on the right team, with the right roster, and the right system, vets can be a big help.  For those of us (like me) who are skeptical of signing more aging vets, I think the argument is that we're not the right team.  Teams full of high end talent in their primes can add around the edges with aging vets.  A team full of guys who are aging and injury prone probably shouldn't (is my argument). 




#2524761 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 20 June 2014 - 03:21 AM

 

This will be exactly like the Maltby situation... which was an embarrassing for the organization and the player.  I don't think Cleary sees himself as anything but a viable NHLer and he'll be pissed if/when they try to send him down.  Remember him bitching about being a healthy scratch?

 

In that case he won't sign a two way contract will he, and end up just leaving. Andd all this will have been for nothing!
