#2550261 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Posted by wings1940 on 20 November 2014 - 03:53 PM

Why are people comparing Nestrasil to Cleary? Cleary isn't the reason Nestrasil got exposed and claimed on waivers. Cleary wasn't going to be waived, nor should he have been. Cleary brings so much more than what he shows on the ice to this team, the experience and leadership he provides, on and off the ice, can't just be replaced, and certainly not by a 23 year old kid. If not Nestrasil, Jurco would have been sent down, and maybe in hindsight that would have been the better choice. But where is all of this upside that everyone sees in Nestrasil? I just don't get it. He was a body on the ice for 13 games, a big body sure, but that's about it. He could barely crack the Grand Rapids line up last season and to be honest should have never cracked our lineup this season. It would have been nice to see him clear and provide some support down in Grand Rapids this year but in reality he probably never would have cracked the Wings lineup on a full time basis, not this year, not next year, not ever. We have a ton of more skilled guys knocking on the door, he will not be missed. We even have a player that we signed in the offseason who is similar in stature but much more skilled, in Tomas Nosek. Good luck in Carolina Nestrasil, unfortunately you will probably end up down in Charlotte after 30 days.

they are being compared because cleary should have been waived. i love how people talk about what cleary does off the ice. how would any of you know. are you in the locker room? i dont hear any players talking about how great cleary is. atleast nest wasnt a liability on the ice. he played d and skated hard. cleary cant even move out there. if he is so good as a leader and locker room guy then find a position in management for him. make one up. locker room cheerleader. but the guy only costs us when on the ice and that is stupid to do, i dont care what he does in the locker room

nestrasil didnt tear it up when he played but he is still young and has a ton of upside. instead of putting him on waivers why the hell did we keep cleary. the guy can barely skate, plays no D. he is a -3 in 3 games. nest was -3 in 13 games. nest skates hard and plays D. so we keep an old used up vet who cant play and get rid of a young kid. makes sense to me.

what af****** waste! Stupid Ken Holland is Stupid! All in the name of Cleary, we lost a promising young kid. This is why I say Holland should just start trading his picks for players again because we have so many kids that are ready to come up, but there is no room for them. May as well stop drafting players until these useless players are off the Wings (Cleary, kindl, Quincey, Franzen...) and there's room to bring up our draft picks instead of wasting them. Jarnkrok, traded. Nestrasal given away for free, so we can keep Cleary and Kindl... I.Am.Pissed.

I'm just glad that wasn't a playoff game. My God. Maybe there really needs to be a challenge system in this league...

There absolutely needs to be disciplinary action for referees who screw a game.

#2538806 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

Posted by rick zombo on 07 October 2014 - 02:00 PM

Oulette needs to be with the Wings.  Simple as that.

 

No s***. It's like Holland's driving a car with two bald rear tires but refuses to change them becasue then they'll go to waste.




#2538442 Callahan, Ferraro and Porter placed on Waivers

Posted by uk_redwing on 05 October 2014 - 12:19 PM

Gonna be a sad day for me if Callahan gets claimed. I've followed his progress since the day he was drafted and have been waiting for the day that seemed inevitable in that he would get a regular spot on the Wings team. I think choosing someone based on a few incredibly crappy exhibition games is a flawed process, but what do I know. Not like Detroit has made mistakes in choosing it's roster in recent years  :sleepy:

 

At least we've got Cleary on the roster  :clap:  That'll be worth it if Mitch gets claimed. Something to laugh at.

I'll believe it when I see it.  Holland's been saying that for about 5 years now.  Once the trade deadline passes then he'll start telling everyone how's he's going to be a big player in free agency.  Ho hum.
