#2536574 TSN ranks all major league sport franchises.

When are people going to stop paying any attention whatsoever to ESPN, especially when it comes to hockey?  When I want to know about poker championships, I'll turn to ESPN.

Look no further than their vote for the Number 1 worst team in North America: The Toronto Maple Leafs.  Seriously?  While they have indeed struggled mightily in recent years (decades), they are far from the worst.  I don't care what the criteria was, ESPN is dead-ass wrong.  As usual.

ESPN more than enough to skip the whole article

Just like Sproul, Marchenko and Mrazek are the next Lidstrom, Pronger and Dominators *g*

 

Just like you and DeGraa are the next Bob MacKenzie and Pierre LeBrun   :lol:




#2536391 Nice article on Mantha

Posted by GoWings1905 on 16 September 2014 - 10:35 PM

I'm pretty sure we burned a year of Dekeyser's contract in 2012-13 when we kept him up at the end the year even though the "smart" business decision would have been to send him to GR.


That team could ill-afford to keep DeKeyser down then. Between the injuries and porous defense, the Wings needed DeKeyser to even make the playoffs. Babs said after that they probably don't get in without DeKeyser around. That's a pretty rare example of the Wings not opting to bury a player in Grand Rapids and it would have been a colossal failure to do so.

Yes, but Dekeyser is an underpaid god amongst men, deserving of 4 million a year, and is a future #1 D unless Holland F's it up someho. Don't you pay attention PVD?




#2536319 Nice article on Mantha

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. 

 

It wouldn't be all that much of a bad thing tbh. Give Mantha virtually a full year to adjust to the pro game and then start tearing it up, while the Wings gain a free year of his deal. 

 

That way, when he does start on the NHL roster guaranteed in 15-16, he'll be much better than he is now.

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

 

Source

 

 

 

If a player aged 18 or 19 signs an entry-level contract with a club (with his age calculated on Sept. 15 of the year he signed the contract) but does not play in at least 10 NHL games, the contract will "slide" or be extended one year. The extension does not apply if the player turns 20 between Sept. 16 and Dec. 31 in the year he signed the contract.
Depending on the contract's structure, the player's cap hit can be affected either by an increase or a decrease. Players who sign at age 18 can have their contract extended (or "slide") two seasons.
CBA reference: Section 9.1 (d) (P. 23-24)

 

That's quite the loophole...

I don't remember your posts being so difficult to read, before.


#2535918 2015 Winter Classic : Blackhawks vs. Capitals at Nationals Park

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 11 September 2014 - 03:17 AM

 

I'm counting all outdoor league games. Classic, "Stadium Series", etc.

 

19 teams have participated in 15 games.

 

3 games

 

New York Rangers

Chicago Blackhawks

Pittsburgh Penguins

 

2 Games

 

Detroit Red Wings

Montreal Canadiens

Los Angeles Kings

Philadelphia Flyers

Washington Capitals

 

1 Game

 

Boston Bruins

Buffalo Sabres

Anaheim Ducks

New Jersey Devils

New York Islanders

San Jose Sharks

Edmonton Oilers

Calgary Flames

Vancouver Canucks

Ottawa Senators

Toronto Maple Leafs

 

0 games

 

Colorado Avalanche

Columbus Bluejackets

Arizona Coyotes

Dallas Stars

St. Louis Blues

Minnesota Wild

Nashville Predators

Winnipeg Jets

Florida Panthers

Tampa Bay Lightning

Carolina Hurricanes

 

That's interesting. All the teams that haven't participated in a game yet minus St Louis are expansion/relocated teams from the 90's on. 

 

How growing the game coming along Gary?

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


Haha, no I caught it. One goal in 23 games to close a season plus a no-show in the playoffs four years running just doesn't meet my standards for a goal-scoring winger. Maybe in a complimentary sense, but the Wings clearly can't rely on Franzen for consistency.

I'd sign Semin to a contract just so I could see him do that again.  :lol:




#2535790 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by number9 on 08 September 2014 - 10:31 PM

As a Detroit fan, if I had a bajillion dollars (I don't, I'm from Detroit) I would immediately buy a 2nd Toronto franchise just to beat the leafs and win a cup before them and watch all of Ontario implode.
