I'll take your word for it.  Admittedly I've only ever seen Moulson when Detroit was in the west and played the odd game again NYI.  Thanks for the info. 

We do our homework.

The NHL really should rename the first day of agency "An Afternoon Of High Comedy And Instant Regret".

Honestly, everybody should live in NYC for two years. It's a cool place as long as you don't stay too long.

I've lived here for 10.  (Specifically in Brooklyn) It's definitely losing it's shine.  :D

Anybody doubt that Nill being aggressive this year and last will make his team more desirable to free agents going forward?

You don't say...  hmmm... doesn't the old saying go: "when the student becomes the master."

You know what?

 

f*** Dan Boyle anyway. 

 

And f*** the Rangers. Why would Boyle want to go there? What’s so special about them? They were over-rated last year, benefiting from an inspired Habs victory over Boston.  They are going to be worse this year without Poulliot, Brian Boyle, Stralman, Brassard, etc. 

I LoL'ed

@FriedgeHNIC

Dan Boyle also got a NMC from NYR...

 

 

I think it goes without saying KH offered him one of these as well. 

 

It wouldn't be a KH deal without one.

Apparently so was the Boyle signing.  Only I'm not sure who he's romatically linked to. 

Marty St. Louis.

Well boy was I ever wrong.  Good thing I'm not an NHL GM eh?

If I was an owner. I'd hire you.

Ok, I give.  It was pre-ordained that Ehrhoff was going to Pittsburgh because despite the fact that not a single source reported him being interested in Pittsburgh, he "obviously" wanted to go there. 

He's on TSN now.  "I did not entertain other long term deals. Pitts been there right there from the start.  I want to be there. "

And 3 years at 4.5 or 5 million couldn't have convinced him otherwise? 

 

Don't start making excuses yet.  My least favorite part about FA day is that in the end, when we're left holding a bag of s***, everyone tries to explain why it wouldn't have happened any other way. 


 

That team has had no more success the last five years than our team has had.  I'm not sure why you think so. 

Obviously, it couldn't.  Also, I think Holland really is focusing on a righty.

 

My least favorite part is that when we're left holding this supposed bag of s***, some people continue to complain that it should have happened any other way.  And it maybe could have, but it didn't... and we harp on and on and on and on about what should have been.

 

The Pens have been killer in the regular season for the last five seasons, cruising to the top of their division.  Detroit while continuing to make the playoffs, in the the last five seasons has found themselves just sliding in.

I am disappointed about Ehrhoff not being a Wing, but I will live... he obviously wanted to go to Pittsburgh.




#2527424 It's too bad about us having Weiss...

Posted by e_prime on 30 June 2014 - 09:32 PM

Yes,   Agreed.    zero   p e r    cent.

 

and yes    a horrible   thing   having  a  second  line  center thats   already    signed.

Of course I'm disappointed when the Wings don't get the exact players I want.  I'm convinced of my own good judgement in these matters lol.  But I'm fully capable of settling for others, provided they're not 92 years old and clearly declining. 

 

As for Malik...I loathe the guy.  He's the absolute definition of a company man.  I might put more stock in what he had to say if I hadn't spent the last 5 years reading him agree with every misstep Holland made, and then make excuses afterward as if Holland were a victim of fate and not a man who is clearly petrified by uncertainty.

Wasn't Malik's tweet... but a Malik follower.  Malik is an apologist through and through. He's fan that wants to be a "reporter" but ultimately is a re-poster/re-tweeter.  I go there for the facts and summaries, not for his opinion.

He finds no fault in Cleary.  That's enough for me to know that he can't be trusted.

So as to not be too disappointed, I'm going to say that I'd be happy with Ehrhoff and Radim Vrbata.  I wouldn't be thrilled, but I could live with it. 

 

Chances are that's asking too much as well. 

 

We'll get Boyle and Alfie.  I don't know why I bother pretending otherwise. 

George Malik @georgemalik 21m

.@Mjurgh I call July 1st the "great disappointment" because even if KH signed everybody, Wings fans would still be upset.
