#2532952 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by rick zombo on 24 July 2014 - 01:04 PM

Zombo, there is nothing wrong with being disappointed in Holland.  I simply said Booth was a hometown kid, more than likely gave Holland a call because most hometown kids do dream of playing for their childhood team.  But Holland is happy with his team and won't do another thing until he signs Alfie.

 

BTW David Friggin Booth is tons better than Dan s***stain Cleary.  Booth has proven to have chemistry with Weiss and that kind of chemistry is valuable around this league.  I was not saying that Booth was going to be the savior of this team, but I'd rather have Booth and 30-40 points at $1.1M than Cleary and his 10 games at $2.75M and probably 0-5 points.  Just saying.  And btw, where in my post did I say Holland is a bad GM? So, when you decide to comment on someone's quote, make sure you are quoting the correct post.

 

You didn't need to say it in your post. Your opinion on Holland has been well stated over the past year.

 

Booth is just as stupid a signing as Cleary, and then some, because when healthy, Cleary is an "every day-er" that's only one season removed from being one of our better playoff performers in 2013. Booth has had two good seasons with Florida and hasn't done jack squat in 3 years.

 

But the grass is always greener............

The South Korean team would get destroyed by the North. Kim Yung Un averages 14 goals a game between his trips to the moon and shooting 18 on an 18 hole golf course.


#2532866 Jim Paek leaves Griffs to help run Korean Hockey

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 23 July 2014 - 09:50 AM

In the last two years, the organization has lost:

Paek

Anastas

Renney

Peters

Nill

McDonald

Leach

 

Do other organizations have this much turnover?  It might be totally normal, I've just never thought to follow it until now.  Seems like a lot of high profile personnel to lose in a short span. 

Didn't you know? The Redwings org has lost its shine. no one wants to be here anymore. It's only a matter of time before the fans start leaving.




#2532753 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 July 2014 - 10:37 PM

I am glad you like my idea for the ICE Arena. I like it too!

 

If you guys want to go with the kicking tires theme, it would be hilarious if Goodyear or Uniroyal got the bid for the name. Uniroyal Centre, we've been kicking tires for 20 years! (and kicking ass)




#2532642 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

Posted by joshy207 on 20 July 2014 - 01:15 PM

So happy for the new arena but I do think the district would have been better suited somewhere in Oakland County like Novi.

There's just no money flowing in Detroit.

 

Novi is crowded as hell already.  It doesn't have the infrastructure to add a project of this magnitude.  Detroit does.  Plus, we've seen with the Silverdome and the Palace, that suburban arena/stadium entertainment districts are not sustainable.  There's next-to-nothing by the Palace.  The points of this project are to keep the team downtown (Ilitch wouldn't have it any other way) and to help revive the city of Detroit.

What's wrong with havinga winner ? Different sports are having different metrics and just because a stupid sport like soccer is having a tie, doesn't mean hockey should do so too.
 
The most important part in all of this is how are the players thinking about the shootout ?


Ya I can't believe how stupid soccer is. I mean why do All the rules have to make sense?

Just look at that smart sport like hockey, 2 points for a regulation win, but somehow it becomes 3 points if it's in overtime!!

How about a best-of-7 tic-tac-toe competition?

I hate shootouts because hockey is a team sport--you win or lose as a team.

I don't understand why people hate the shoutout. I love it. And it's not during the playoffs like World Cup is for example.

It's only regular season games and it's cool and exciting to see. Even if the wings suck lol.

 

It's winning based on a skill competition basically. You don't see games being determined by home run derbys, dunk contests or some sort of qb competition. Shootouts used to be exciting to me, but now since they are so often it kind of lost its luster.

I don't understand why people hate the shoutout


I agree. I'm perfectly ok with games being decided by shoutout.

"First up for the Red Wings is Zetterberg, let's see what he has to say. Z?"

"Yeah, uh, I'd just like to make a shoutout to my boo Emma, my moms, and my homeboy Sven back in Sweden. Big ups!"

"Well, that was a solid showing by the captain, let's see how the Hawks stack up. First to the mic is Patrick Kane, who will inevitably bring something sufficiently douchey to the table..."

"Yo what up what up this ya boy P Kane in the hizzle, just want to give a shoutout to all the dime pieces out there, hit me up after the game and I might let you smell my cup YA KNOW WHAT I'M SAYIN but on the real one love PEACE"

"Point awarded to the Red Wings"

What about the wings?!?! I mean if you look closely there is a wheel to symbolize the motor city and a wings attached cause we're the wings

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

#2531668 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 July 2014 - 06:12 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. 

 

Surprised they didn't tell you, "We like our team"
