#2337537 Which players will get bought out?

Posted by luvmnger on 03 January 2013 - 09:48 PM

i believe buy outs can only happen to active players....Savard /Pronger/ Eaves are on long term, therefore disconnected from the cap and on insurance protection.


once the are cleared a good bill of health, they would then be put on waivers, or roster space be made for said player.


i dont believe they can be released, per union rules of disability.


its like being fired while injured.  i dont even think that Uwe Krupp got fired for "bad back=dogsled injury". ( lawyered up)

#2334393 Has your opinion of kenny changed?

Posted by luvmnger on 20 November 2012 - 08:13 PM

my only beef is with acquiring tootoo...i think that was a mistake. but i could be wrong. i think i would have gone after semin over tootoo. we have enough role players.
hell, half the team is role players...a true scorer is needed. with pasha working on semin, he would have worked better for us than ovechkin.

but who knows...maybe brunner can be the acquistion of the decade!

silly people....the mayans predicted the return of the "instructor" in december, he will arrive, state that hockey is the only sport that needs to exist, show us all how to travel the planet with magnetism, and initiate the new hockey league whereas every country across the world plays each other.
no more fuel needed, and travel time is approx 6min. to china.


oh, and pasha still plays for detroit. :yahoo:

book it.

#2330130 White as home jerseys or road jerseys?

Posted by luvmnger on 26 September 2012 - 07:14 PM

the whole idea behind wearing white at home is to draw the colors from other teams in for the fans. face it, if your a islanders fan, and they wear colors at home...everyone comes in wearing white. no fun.

come on wings...go back to white at home. they just look better.

#2329951 Rebuild or retool?

Posted by luvmnger on 24 September 2012 - 09:06 PM

my take was that we needed to hit up the ole' " offer sheet on evander kane, kyle turris, etc...) and lose the draft picks.

that is a retool idea that carries water. we have lots of talent coming up from the griffins in the next 3-5 years. establishing the next core is important to do now!

the trade front is drying up, our used parts are great, but not worth much out in trade. UFA and offer sheets are the next best thing.

when was the last notable trade for the wings? Lang? seems like the other owners are done with us, so why worry about making them mad?

hell, we had to go through yzerman to get quincey...i dont think the other 29 teams are going to help us until we have 20 year olds to sell.

that will not happen unless we tank ala edmonton style.

#2310852 who's on the outs if we sign multiple forwards?

Posted by luvmnger on 28 June 2012 - 07:26 PM

eaves has stated he is going to be ready, and he signed a 3 year last season. he is a scorer turned grinder...his value is more than we give him.

abdelkader /bertuzzi / miller are more expendable.

#2310513 Steve Ott - anyone interested in getting him?

Posted by luvmnger on 27 June 2012 - 04:52 PM

no no no....no trades.

the right pieces are in free agency.

clemmenssen (sp?)

my priorities in that order

just got to grab em'

sell the dream baby!

#2310204 Red Wings make contract offer to D Justin Schultz

Posted by luvmnger on 26 June 2012 - 07:45 PM

does anyone remember the day we all found out that the wings had hasek, hull, robitaille signed? tingles....right?

yea...we need that again.


tingles? yea....then we can all bicker who should be the backup goalie for a week.

#2308704 Top Swiss-leaguer Brunner to sign with Wings, Babcock has big plans

Posted by luvmnger on 22 June 2012 - 10:38 AM

Unless he's terrible during the preseason, I think he needs to be on the big club from the start. You can't take a 26 year old scoring champion of another league, that multiple teams wanted and put him in the minors. That would really affect our ability to sign other players like this in the future knowing that they'll probably be sent to the AHL if they sign with Detroit. I don't see a problem giving him at least 4th line minutes.

this would send a message to all the future talent overseas. wings promote on talent! not time served.

#2306192 Message to Ken Holland...

Posted by luvmnger on 09 June 2012 - 12:15 PM

Suter and Garrison maybe but not Weber.

i'll second that ...and up the ante with a schultz signing.
