#2029653 Bill Guerin will NOT be offered a contract

Posted by ShanahanMan on 27 August 2010 - 08:20 AM

You guys really confuse the hell out of me sometimes. So signing a guy like Mike Modano who had 30 points last season for 1.5 mil is an awesome idea but signing Guerin, a player who had more goals and points, for one third the price is stupid. I just don't get the logic.


#2027992 How big of a Wings fan is your Wife/Girlfriend/Significant Other?

Posted by ShanahanMan on 21 August 2010 - 08:13 AM

Is it weird that I have my girlfriend wear nothing but a Lebda jersey everytime we do it?


#2027991 Penguins sign Arron Asham

Posted by ShanahanMan on 21 August 2010 - 08:09 AM

GMR has hit the nail right on the head. Asham is someone the Wings really could have used.....a gritty, tough player who can also put up points. Instead, we sign a past-his-prime unnecessary player in the likes of Modano for more than twice the price and then offer Downey a try-out. Really boggles the mind. Asham was a presence our 4th line definitely needed.


#2024393 Wings sign Ruslan Salei

Posted by ShanahanMan on 09 August 2010 - 01:14 PM

Yeah but Lils wanted quite a bit more money and also more playing time and Mitchell was likely always too expensive.


I suppose if Lilja goes for more than 1.2 mil (including bonuses) or so, then you're right, we wouldn't have been able to sign him. But if he (or other younger, more worthwhile defensemen) ends up going for around the same price as Salei, Im gonna be a bit.....annoyed :ranting:.


#2024382 Wings sign Ruslan Salei

Posted by ShanahanMan on 09 August 2010 - 01:00 PM

Not a fan of this. Would have way rather seen Lilja back, especially after he fought so hard to recover from his injury. Salei hasn't played a full season since 2006 :o, and frankly is just too old. Whats the average age of our defensive core now, 37?

*sigh*

Was really really hoping for Mitchell.


#2021870 Mike Modano signs with Detroit

Posted by ShanahanMan on 03 August 2010 - 06:15 AM

Gee, now you'll need to ***** and moan at the deadline about how we can't do anything to give you excitement; we'll have no cap space.

You'll complain about anything.


And you'll complain about anything I complain about.

OH MY......meh

And at 1.25 mil? Stevie Y didn't even make that much his final year.


#2013426 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by ShanahanMan on 10 July 2010 - 07:09 AM

Every now and again in this thread you hear about how Modano is a ****** or something like that. Can anybody go into details on what gave them that impression?


If you met the guy in person, you'd know. Grade A douchebag to say the least.


#2013425 Kovie

100 million? Christ that's a lot. I would think that after his disappointing run with New Jersey, his value would have decreased a bit. Apparently not.

The price would have to be right ofcourse, but why not take a risk on a guy who put up 60+ points last year? I'm very familiar with his problems in work ethic, but perhaps the Wings organization can snap him out of it. And Crymson, try to actually contribute with your posts once in a while instead of just trolling the site and berating everyone else.

His presence is not necessary on our team.

Get Afinogenov over here.

And now Pittsburgh is supposedly in the mix to sign Ray Whitney as well.

Who needs a cap anyway. :blink:

boogaard to rangers, uk redwing to cry

Leave it to retard Glen Sather to once again overpay for a player that should be going for one third the price.


#2008138 The new TBL

Posted by ShanahanMan on 01 July 2010 - 01:28 PM

I'm waiting to hear how much Ellis signed for. 2 mil or below and it's a good deal.

*edit*

Turns out to be 1.5 mil for two years. Now I can officially agree with this thread. GREAT job by Stevie Y. today.
