#2316505 Buck Wild?

Posted by ShanahanMan on 06 July 2012 - 06:54 PM

Elite or not, as it stands, they have a much stronger roster than us and I'm willing to guarantee that they finish ahead of us in the standings next season.


#2316502 Semin

Pittsburgh radio reporting Pens and Semin working out a contract.

*sigh*.......Can Holland just stay home and give the job to someone else? This is truly pathetic.


#2316188 The Next Move

Posted by ShanahanMan on 06 July 2012 - 04:19 AM

Once again, don't expect Holland to do much more except enjoy the golf course. Quote from this morning Detroit Press article:

"We’ll do our due diligence and we’ll explore the marketplace, see what is out there,” Holland said. “Like I said, we like our team and we have players who we feel are ready to accept bigger roles.”


Cool, cause standing pat for the last 3 years has done wonders for us. :sneaky2:


#2316093 Dear Mr. Holland: Forget about FA, trade for Yandle and Ryan

Posted by ShanahanMan on 05 July 2012 - 08:59 PM

Uhhhh....

Had to break it to you bud, but we LITERALLY do not have enough assets to trade for both. We can possibly get one, in which case I say definitely go for Yandle, but getting both? Impossible.


#2316049 Semin

Posted by ShanahanMan on 05 July 2012 - 07:36 PM

hey dats pull a parise and persuade semin to sign here for 4 years 20mil


In all honesty, if Holland is having reserves about his attitude, I think the best thing to do would be have Dats give him a call and see how it goes. I mean, with the right leadership, I think this guy could blossom.

Imagine Semin on the same line as Dats......possibilities are endless.

With someone as Bert in you're avatar, I find it funny you are ripping Kenny lol. just saying


Fair point. Have had this avatar for the last 3 years, maybe time for a change :P.

In all honesty, I was as pissed at the Bert extension as the next guy. In a few years, we're looking at most of our core guys being mid to late 30's!

:shock:


#2315150 St. James: Wings have inquired about Rick Nash

Posted by ShanahanMan on 04 July 2012 - 06:46 PM

Wings aren't gonna get Nash. I can't see how any of you can think otherwise. Traded to a division rival? Just not gonna happen.


#2314155 Suter Watch: Decision today, down to Wings/Wild

Posted by ShanahanMan on 04 July 2012 - 05:16 AM

True. If we were to fail to get a high quality defenseman, I would rather see Holland just stand pat and not do much else, except maybe 1-year temp deals just to get us through the season. Basically, simply prepare for to restack for next year.

I'm really worried that Holland will instead throw some long term contract at one of the "B" players, just to help fill the roster. Like I said, if it can be done for a 1 year term, I'd be fine but other than that, we are better off saving the funds for next FA.

I really think it was Suter or bust this year.


#2314107 Suter Watch: Decision today, down to Wings/Wild

Posted by ShanahanMan on 04 July 2012 - 01:03 AM

Sometimes you have to overpay to get the right players at the right time. With the weak free agents the last couple years their salary is going to be inflated. The salary cap has been consistently going up... what might be overpaying this year may be a bargain down the road it's just the economy of the NHL these days. You can't relate a contract signed 5 years ago to a contract signed this year and expect to have the same value.


Exactly. Gotta make use of what the market has.

Understand about the Twitter citing, but Insiderr guy is calling 95%​ on Suter to Detroit. He's soon either gonna look brilliant, or become the next Eklund.

Oh and he's also saying 90% for Parise to Pens :(.


#2313986 Suter Watch: Decision today, down to Wings/Wild

Posted by ShanahanMan on 03 July 2012 - 08:15 PM

I've been following this guy for a couple days, I'm not sure how reliable he is but he's sounded pretty reputable with the semin situation, and apparently he leaked jäger to Dallas this morning. And he sound really anal about checking his sources.

Anyway I didn't have the chance to post earlier, but these were around an hour ago.

Hockeyy insiderr:
"Had to be back early because of a text I just got from a source I trust immensely. Won't post it before I double check tho. On Suter. HUGE."

"Couldn't verify with other sources, but as per one source close to Suter he has made a choice, Detroit. #RedWings Working contract details."


Holding you to this man!


#2313868 Jagr signs in Dallas

Posted by ShanahanMan on 03 July 2012 - 05:02 PM

I think this is simply a way for Dallas to sell tickets. No one's going to their games anymore.

Lost in all this, Helen St. James has reported that if Detroit misses the Parise bus, they will go hard for Doan on the 9th...


Of course he will. Any player under 35 has no place on this team.


#2312537 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by ShanahanMan on 02 July 2012 - 01:42 AM

People's reactions are priceless. We signed 4 players on July first. One guy was coveted by every NHL team and has serious speed and shooting abilities.


Yes, he was highly sought after......and yes there's extremely high potential. However, there's no guarantee he will be able to fit in with NHL. Without seeing him step foot into this league, he's a big question mark.

One guy was heralded as the next big thing for goalies.


Come on now. I think it was actually a good signing and he could probably fit in well with his Swedish teammates. That being said, he is remarkably inconsistent with a pretty bad GAA. Still, a solid signing.

One guy is one of the best pests in the league and fights and is a heart and soul guy who just put up 30 points


Heart and soul guy? The same guy with major alcohol and domestic problems? The same guy who was scratched through most of the 2012 playoffs? There is absolutely no place for this loser. And to the idiots spewing, "BUT, BUT, HE ADDS SIZE, GRIT, AND TOUGHNESS!".....no. The guy is 5'9, built small, and adds zero strength to our lineup. Big difference between grit and rat.

and one guy who is a right handed shot and loves to shoot and will put up 20+ goals.


He'll put up 20+ goals, eh? Is that a promise? 36, coming off injury after injury, passed up by TWO teams and......he gets a raise (he was on 2.5m before)? Where's the logic in that? And to the guys pointing to his stats in Vancouver, look a bit deeper. He was playing most of the time on a line with the Sedins or Kesler......OFCOURSE he's gonna wrack up points. I feel this signing is on par with when we brought Williams back and will likely have just as bad a result...maybe even worse considering the NTC.


Just my two cents ;)


#2312206 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by ShanahanMan on 01 July 2012 - 06:11 PM

Funny, I remember reading posts like this when Dallas Drake was signed by the Wings the year they won the cup. :P


Drake was signed close to league minimum, not $3M a year for two years WITH an NTC. Completely different. This guy, especially at 35, is supposed to score 25 goals a season? Especially with all the injuries?

It seriously boggles the head. What the hell is wrong with our GM?
