#2426507 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Posted by henrik40 on 05 July 2013 - 10:54 AM

Holland simply doesn't learn. Wish I could say I don't believe it, but completely expected from the guy who ran after Modano, Sammy, and Jagr.

40 years old and will have to adopt to a brand new system and style of play

All thats left now is Clearly and that will be our free agent splash.


New system and style of play? The stache has been in Ottawa for two years now. I don't watch much of their games, but I bet he's incorporated a significant amount of Babcock's system into that team. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Watching Eklund's twitter is awesome. He reports everything after everyone else has reported it.

Honestly, I think this is pretty lame. That's really all I can say about it. Kind of baffles me that this was even an idea, let alone someone approving it.

Dont go crosschecking guys hard into the boards and expect nothing coming back.. Dont mind that by Stepan at all. Too bad for Green though, wasnt this his first game back in a while?

You don't mind a blatant elbow to the head? Stepan could have easily gotten retribution with a clean hit, the elbow to the head was over the top.

If you can afford the big tv, then you can afford the 10 dollar cord to hook your computer up to your tv screen. They have HDMI to HDMI and they also have computer to HDMI converters for another 10 bucks.

That's not the point. I pay $160 to watch out of market games then can't watch it. That doesn't make sense. Plus the picture from hooking up your computer via HDMI is nowhere near as nice as the HD picture from my TV.

Well courtesy of that fantastic TV deal with NBC, they aren't even offering the regional coverage on Center Ice. I purchase Center Ice because I want to watch Wings games because I'm outside of the regional market, as are a s*** ton of Wings fans. Thanks for defeating the whole purpose of why I pay $160 a season.

According to NBC here in Columbia, we get Pittsburgh @ Philly at 12:30, then Pittsburgh @ Chicago at 3:00. That's a tough schedule for the Pens today.

I think it's creepy but kinda sweet at the same time.

I totally stand corrected. Cooke suspended for 4 games. I'm shocked.

Still not enough.

After the game, Cooke said, "It used to be you were responsible for yourself if you turned, but thatís not the way anymore,Ē Cooke said. ďThat callís been called on us four or five times this year. Itís the same thing. He turns and looks and sees me coming. The other defenseman is slowing me down, so Iím not skating full speed at him.Ē

This is just bulls*** on so many levels. Tyutin was turned with his back to the play the whole god damn time, except for the split second he turned his head to see if a forechecker was on him. It wasn't like he was facing cooke head on then turned. He played the puck and expected Cooke to continue on his forecheck, not blast him from behind. What does Cooke want Tyutin to do? "Oh here comes a guy to blast me, I'll just turn and face him so I can get my chest drilled and my back flattened against the boards." Cooke is Grade A s***.

I knew Cooke was a repeat offender, but jesus, that montage in the Cherry video is ridiculous. Cooke has no business being on the ice. What a disgrace to the league.

He just sounds frustrated, that's all. Did Mason and Rinne have great games? Sure, but the Wings also played uninspired and crappy.

#2107375 All-Star Game Thread

Posted by henrik40 on 30 January 2011 - 05:15 PM

I'm actually enjoying this game, somewhat. The Network showed the All-Star games from 06-09 this week and I glanced at them for a minute. It was terrible. The defensemen did absolutely nothing. Like literally stood around waving their sticks and there was really no pace whatsoever. There seems to be some actual pace to this game, although slower than normal still.

#2103116 1/22 GDT: Blackhawks 4 at Red Wings 1

Posted by henrik40 on 22 January 2011 - 02:47 PM

So in the last 4 periods against the Hawks, they've had one penalty called on them: delay of game for putting the puck over the glass. Might go grab my tinfoil hat.

#2102885 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by henrik40 on 22 January 2011 - 12:57 PM

I know, but that is supposed to be the intent of rules correct? Fairness, parity? Every team was able to make a deal with Nabby and didn't. Now that Detroit got something done other teams can swoop in and take him, and not just other teams, ALL other teams. Again, if Detroit already had him before he went to europe I can see where it might be construed as they were "hiding" him, but that's not the case here. Just doesn't seem right, and not just because I'm a Wings fan either.


Flip the situation. If we had been the team to claim him, I doubt you'd have the same view.
