#2531583 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by ShanahanMan on 11 July 2014 - 01:46 PM

I can't believe theyf****** told you that. WTF is wrong with them?

 

Too much kool-aid.

So Dallas or Tampa? Kings are my video game team when someone already picked the Wings, but I'd feel/labeled as a band-wagoner.

 

Meh. Would prefer a team on the east or at least central so I can watch the games. 

 

Being in Boston, might start following the Bruins closer. Though I hate a ton of players on the team, I think Chiarell is the best GM in the NHL.

Wow. Seriously?

I can't believe the Red Wings ticket office thinks Billy Beane is the team's GM.

(But seriously that's totally absurd if true.)

 

Yep, and I'm apparently one of very few people who's had any complaints. 

 

If true, for god's sakes people, CALL AND MAKE YOUR OPINIONS HEARD OR THINGS WILL NOT CHANGE.

I called and canceled my half-season ticket plan yesterday over voice mail as well as gave my great displeasure, directly but professionally, over the mismanagement and lack of professionalism of this organization.

 

I actually received a follow up this morning from the head of ticket services telling me, "If you don't believe in the vision or management style of the best GM in sports, perhaps you might think about following another team". 

 

I can see they really value the fans.

according to his agent, he wanted a one year deal at 3 mill... the blues offered him two years at that or one year at 2.7 mill.

 

sounds pretty selfish to me

I read the first part and thought you were talking about Cleary and almost spit my coffee out.

Wake me up when this team gets a real GM.

Just throwing it out there, I find it pretty hilarious that we seem to be the only team where none of our free agents have generated even the slightest bit of interest from other teams. Shows how desirable our players are. 

 

Cleary

Bertuzzi

Tootoo

Samuelsson

Quincey

 

Not the subject of any buzz whatsoever, outside resigning in Detroit. 




#2530760 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by ShanahanMan on 09 July 2014 - 10:16 AM

@ArthurJRegner said #RedWings would like to move players like Landon Ferraro to #Capitals for Mike Green.

 

Annnnd, there goes that.




#2530739 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by ShanahanMan on 09 July 2014 - 08:47 AM

Pass on Green. He doesn't play D, he is injury prone, makes 6 mill per year. Right now we don't have the cap space to get him either. At 30 he isn't suddenly going to learn to play defense either. Yes he would help our PP and O when healthy. But we are already a team with injury issues for the past 3 seasons. We don't need to add another injury prone guy to the mix. Not to mention what it would cost to get him. Now if the Caps were willing to take Franzen and Kindl for Green, maybe I think about it. But I doubt they are that dumb.

 

He has one year remaining on his contract and we have 10 mil in cap space.

 

You think it's better to leave the cap space wasted instead of using on a guy who could drastically turn around our PP and blueline?

A guy who is arguably better than Quincey just signed for less than 1/4 the price.

Process that for a moment.


#2530246 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

You think Jarnkrok is already more valuable than Adam Oates? Not sure if serious.




No you're right, Oates was the probably the all time worst.

I was only 3 at the time, so the other ones just pissed me off more :P.


#2529700 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by ShanahanMan on 03 July 2014 - 07:31 AM

I hate Quincey more than anything
He's the easiest player for my buddies to chirp on the Wings next to the typical Cleary/Sammy/Bert
BUT
 
Remember when Ericsson was signed to that contract back in 2011? It was the same thing, we thought we'd let him walk, ends up getting a huge raise. There was a lot of backlash, the forum went nuts, but it ended up working out. Seems unlikely it'll be this way for Quincey but one can only hope...


Nope.

Ericsson was 24 at the time I believe and hadn't peaked. There was still a lot of room for development and improvement.

Quincey is almost 29. What you see, is what you're gonna get until he starts winding down in his mid 30's.

What's even more scary is that he played as s***ty as he did in a CONTRACT YEAR.
