#2192803 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by ShanahanMan on 30 June 2011 - 09:01 PM

You guys seem to forget this is the same Kenny Holland that welcomed Jason Williams back with open arms.

In Kenny We Trust....

Right guys??? Right????

Can I get a +1 now?


#2188119 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

This is coming from the guy who thought Bryzgalov would sign a 5 year contract @ $1.1 million per :lol:


First off, already stated that was a player mix up. It does happen you know.

Second, that has anything to do with this....how?


#2187832 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

How much was Modano's contract again? I forgot he was supposed to come in and be a ppg player. 7 points in 20 games which included gelling with a new team and new system. I'm sorry he was a depth signing he was suppose to come in and try to put up around 40 points which if he got comfortable I bet could have happened.
Also richards bieksa and Wiz... Do you want to be the
one to tell lidstrom ge HAS to retire next season because we have all if our Money locked up on those guys and won't be able to give raises to kronwall and others. Yes we would all love all the best players in free agency but sorry richards 80-90 points for 7.5 million < jagr 40-50 points at
2 million... Which is nicer on the cap and allows us to fix our D situation while not handcuffing our self next season?


Sure, sure. Modano WOULD have had 40 points, WOULD have put up a fair share of goals, WOULD have saved the team. Woulda, coulda, shoulda. Fact is, he stunk and was benched for a reason.

40-50 points for a guy who is 39 and hasn't played in the NHL in 3 years? Are you serious? We'd be LUCKY if he broke 20, with maybe 7 of those points being goals.

Jeez, can Holland not pick up someone in free agency over 36 for once?

Who said it was 5.5 a year? How do you guys know it's not 5.5 mil spread out the five years? I think it's certainly plausible and if true, these cap worries are nonexistent.


#2186611 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

I would take a shot at him if it were for 1 - 1.5 mil but not for anything more than that. Jagr has put up consistently good numbers in the KHL, and I actually think he might be a great fit to play with Datsyuk.

It couldnt be worse than the Modano signing...



:thumbup:


Being as worse as the Modano signing is worse enough. No more old dudes "looking for one more shot" please.


#2179566 Hudler's Future

Posted by ShanahanMan on 25 May 2011 - 01:06 PM

Hudler was one of the team's most effective players from Christmas until the end of the Phoenix series. It wasn't just a few games.


Hudler had a nice little spurt of point production between Christmas and the end of February. Thats pretty much it. Following that, he went pointless for seven games and finally started doing something again around the beginning of the playoffs (as others had mentioned, so did the rest of the team.) Franzen's longest pointless drought was 4 games, while Hudler's was 13. To even fathom the notion that Hudler is as/more valuable than Franzen makes one question your sanity.

And my point was that Hudler outplayed Franzen during the portion of the playoffs Franzen was healthy for. And in case you didn't notice, this is a Hudler thread. Don't want to discuss Hudler, don't come into this thread. It's easy.


You mean all ONE game of it?


#2179382 Will Nicklas Lidstrom Retire?

Posted by ShanahanMan on 25 May 2011 - 12:50 AM

With Rafi throwing in a curve ball, what will Kenny do if Nic says he's off too? I mean Nic might now say, well my old partner has
called it a day so I may as well ride off into the sunset with him. Dont think anyone has suggested this as yet, as we all assume that
the Capt is staying for another year. Now that would cause alarm bells to start ringing. Kenny may just throw out an offer to an RFA no?


Or calls up the Tampa Bay GM and asks for advice.

Posted by ShanahanMan on 04 May 2011 - 11:03 PM

It's funny how Stevie Y was able to turn a non-playoff team into a conference final team in the course of ONE season. While our guy, uh, set us up for a repeat of last year.

OWNED.
