#2619042 #73 OA - Defenseman Vili Saarijarvi

Posted by Ekmanc on 04 July 2015 - 07:53 PM

Second day comments from Malik: 

 

Vili Saarijarvi 71: I shrug my shoulders and go, "Pro pace, pro pace." I have seen Vili for the sum total of about an hour, and I already understand that the Red Wings didn't overreact by signing him to a pro contract some eight days after he was drafted. He's not big at 5'10" and he's not massively physically imposing, but he is an elegant puckhandler, a smart, slick passer and a superb skater who just does everything well. Tyler Wright called him the "complete package" and that's not off. He's really, really good and I don't know how the Wings got him in the 3rd round, either, because he plays like a 1st round pick.


From the 2015 draft thread.....

 

 

 ... we been bitching forever that we need defensemen but we get a 5;9 dman that didnt look good in his short stint at ushl and returned back to finland....

 

The clear implication in that sentence is that he couldn't hack hockey in NA so he's going home

There are many other reasons to go back but either way he seems to be playing for Flint next season.

#2618244 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Apparently Kenny found his jewels!
Well done! Welcome Mike Green :)


#2618208 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Hell yeah. I've liked green since he entered the league and the wings need scoring from the defense real bad. Love the signing.


#2618512 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by frankgrimes on 01 July 2015 - 07:04 PM

The Richards signing kind of confuses me. I'm not sure what he brings to the table that we don't already have.  I guess he is center depth but we already have so many third-line caliber centers.  We already had veteran presence but I guess they felt we needed a bit more.

 

Nobody knows when Pasha will be back and it's really a low risk, high reward signing.

Seems like Kenny gets a pass around here for this Weiss contract.  Terrible move.

#2615369 Sean Avery - Transition Season

Posted by Playmaker on 19 June 2015 - 07:30 PM

He was, and still is, a classless dick.  He doesn't come off as even remotely sincere in the article.  Wow, he flew one flight economy class.  What a warrior.

Hey, they went to the Conference Finals more recently than the Wings.
