#2536313 Nice article on Mantha

Posted by evilmrt on 16 September 2014 - 02:53 PM

Soooo apparently if Mantha plays less than 10 NHL games, his entry-level deal doesn't even start until next year...

That's quite the loophole...

 

There is absolutely no way KH is going to not take advantage of the "free year" of development. 

 

So, 9 games is all we get this year, folks.

Posted by evilmrt on 10 September 2014 - 09:07 PM

WTF is this? 

 

Chicago and Washington are not even close to being rivals. 

 

They could have....oh I don't know....given everyone Montreal and Boston

 

Or hey, how about Vancouver and San Jose in Seattle? I'm surprised Bettman wasn't all over that one. 




#2535828 2014 Preseason Thread

Posted by evilmrt on 09 September 2014 - 10:22 PM

I wanted Semin a few years back when he got a one-year deal. That condition was low risk, high reward. Seven million committed for one season is more appealing than long-term for a player with questions about his work ethic.

The Wings desperately need a top-six winger that scores goals, though. Have since Hossa left.

 

No, we have Franzen, didn't you pay attention to what he said?

Larkin's not attending because NCAA players can't.  NCAA violation if he does, I believe.  In fact IIRC, NCAA players who attend the development camp like Larkin did in July, have to foot their own bill to attend because of NCAA regs.
 
Edit...Info under the NHL section on development camps here: http://collegehockeyinc.com/faq#chl

That's one of the huge advantages of CHL over NCAA. Not to open a can of worms or anything.


#2535146 potential team names for las vegas!

Las Vegas Slots.

That name should be fun!


#2535116 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by evilmrt on 28 August 2014 - 05:49 PM

 

Atlanta was moved as quick as it was because Bettman wanted to stop the "move the Coyotes back to Winnipeg" talk.  If Atlanta had a competent ownership group and front office and hadn't been a joke for most of their existence I think they would have been relatively successful.  Instead, they got moved as soon as it was possible while the league has done everything possible to keep the failed experiment in Glendale.

 

To this day, I cannot figure out why they keep trying to keep the Phoenix Arizona Coyotes propped up, while they just bailed on the Thrashers. Not a group I would trust to pull off a 4 team expansion.

I wish the bucket would have been filled with something else

#2531678 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by evilmrt on 11 July 2014 - 06:49 PM

I called and canceled my half-season ticket plan yesterday over voice mail as well as gave my great displeasure, directly but professionally, over the mismanagement and lack of professionalism of this organization.
 
I actually received a follow up this morning from the head of ticket services telling me, "If you don't believe in the vision or management style of the best GM in sports, perhaps you might think about following another team". 
 
I can see they really value the fans. 


He called you and said that, or it's an email?

Wow! Wtf???

#2529031 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by evilmrt on 01 July 2014 - 07:23 PM

So...

Are we supposed to let Chris Ilitch know how upset we are about this?

At what point do we voice our displeasure? Our beloved Winged Wheel is being run into the ground by a buffoon.

Soccer is more exciting than free agent day in Detroit. At least in soccer, there is a CHANCE your team is going to score.
 
Happy July 1, everybody.


And that team is hanging tough so far!


#2526416 NHL Draft 2014: First Round

Posted by evilmrt on 27 June 2014 - 08:16 PM

Wow, they did pick Larkin. Thats pretty cool, this kid is about as Michigan as any of you guys could want.

 

He's from freaking Waterford, played for the Belle Tire club, then for USNTDP in Ann Arbor, and now he's suiting up for U of M.

 

Surely some of you guys know this kid? 




#2523237 GM moves

Posted by evilmrt on 08 June 2014 - 08:14 AM

Wow. Someone finally figured it out. Hollands just trying to keep up appearances. He doesn't even want to build a good hockey team. He just wants to play GM and hang out with Zetterberg.


I'd rather hang out with Pasha
