In Topic: Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

28 July 2014 - 06:11 PM

I wouldn't go that far...the cap will go up again and we prolly won't re-sign Andersson. Smith and Jurco I don't see getting what Tatar just got. Nyquist will be the only one getting decent money. We will still have cap space left to low ball free agents and lose out on them.


Yea I don't see why they'd re-sign Andersson. If anything, he'd be put in a package first, although I doubt that'd net us very much in return. 

In Topic: Favorite Dan Cleary Moment or Play

25 July 2014 - 05:24 PM


That will probably win, but I like to forget anything that happened in those playoffs.  


Cleary was awful in the 2008 playoffs, but the Wings won the Cup.  In 2009, he was brilliant and scored a lot, but the Wings lost and he missed that crucial breakaway at the end of game 6 against the Pens.  


2007 is a better memory, because the team vindicated itself after choking in the playoffs in 2003, 2004 and 2006.  Losing to Anaheim on a deflection sucked, and I still feel we'd have won the Cup if not for that play, but overall, that playoff feels better.  Also likely because we won the Cup the following year.  2009 still stings because the Wings haven't won anything since then.


What about the Lilja OT giveaway to Selanne?

We could actually see this lineup at some point this season, which to me, is pretty exciting!

Doesn't make a lot of sense....if you lose in OT, you get 1 pt, but if you make it through OT and lose in the SO, you get no points?


Yea. Having re-thought this, I think it'd be better just to scrap the loser point altogether and go with winner takes all in OT and shootout. But there has to be something done about reducing the amount of shootouts.

If the league is really concerned there are too many shootouts, here's what I think would be an interesting idea. 


Play the full 60 minutes as normal, if it's a tie, each team gets 1 point heading into OT.


Play 4 on 4 OT but with a dry scrape and long changes


But, if the game remains tied after OT and goes to a shootout, remove the single point from both teams and go winner takes all. 


Makes it a gamble to go all conservative in OT praying for a shootout. Not sure if my intended purpose would work though.


Having thought about all of those rules, them helmet one is the worst damn thing. If they were really that concerned with players getting head injuries because they've lost their helmets, then just blow the damn whistle!
