#1992324 Lidstrom Signs 1-Year Contract Extension

Posted by ShanahanMan on 01 June 2010 - 11:38 AM

I was thinking the same thing... :blink:


I was referring to if the contract is 7 million. Amazing defenseman or not, at his age, does he really deserve to be making a million + more than Green, Pronger and Boyle?

uh oh... freep.com is now reporting it is 7 million

I REALLY hope this isn't true - http://www.freep.com...ng-to-Red-Wings

Even if this is true - I'd rather this than no Nick, but this is basically no discount and disappointing if true...


If this is true I will be royally disappointed and we can kiss next season goodbye.


#1992294 Lidstrom Signs 1-Year Contract Extension

I know I'm in the minority here but I really feel that number is way too high and will prove to be VERY costly when we try to make additions to the team in the off-season. It's alright, I'll just be able to once again say "I told you so" when the board starts flipping out over the lower than expected stats Lids will have next season.

Come on Lids.....you've essentially been making 7+ mil every season for the last 10 years. You couldn't take one for the team just this once?


#1992234 Blog says that Lidstrom has signed a 1 year deal

Posted by ShanahanMan on 01 June 2010 - 09:44 AM

Under $7m and it's a discount.
Under $6m and it's a steal.
Under $5m and I'm ready to paint a mural downtown of pig-snouted Lidstrom with the Cup.



Lidstrom < 40 years old, yes

Lidstrom > 40 years old, no.

You have to face the fact that he's not in his prime anymore, stats will undoubtedly drop and he has no right to command a gigantic salary at this point.


#1983328 Kirk Maltby, Atlanta Thrasher?

Posted by ShanahanMan on 11 May 2010 - 08:31 AM

You guys act as if other teams would jump at the chance to sign him. Come on now. The best he can hope for is being signed to an AHL team and being used for depth purposes only.


#1981823 Franzen Upset Refs Missed Call, Stuart has sprained MCL

As I said, officiating for this series was the worst I've ever seen.


#1981590 Who should we Keep? Release? Sign?

Posted by ShanahanMan on 09 May 2010 - 12:05 AM

Someone please explain to me HOW Bertuzzi can be considered one of our best players this series. Cuz I don't get it. Constant turnovers, inability to control the puck in the offensive zone, skating as slow as a peewee... Tell me how he's been good?


I don't know....how about the fact that he's tied for 4th in points in the playoffs and is a +4. All for a mere 1.5 mil. What the hell are you complaining about?


#1981549 Who should we Keep? Release? Sign?

Posted by ShanahanMan on 09 May 2010 - 12:00 AM

Please? Please?


And do what? Replace him with a guy who bailed on his team, will come back, get paid twice as much as Bert, and yet only put up a few more points than Bertuzzi did? Wow, I can't wait.

If we can re-sign him for the same amount, I welcome Bert back.

Cleary and Draper are the main forwards locked that I want GONE.


#1981380 WCSF Game 5 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Sharks 2

Posted by ShanahanMan on 08 May 2010 - 11:42 PM

Probably the worst reffed series I've ever seen.....and thats saying a LOT. However, if we were truly the better team, I think we would have been able to overcome it and still beat them.

Many questions this offseason, especially with the (overhyped, overrated) return of short-round.

Okay, its official, the refs are throwing the series. Seriously, they're throwing the series.


#1979848 ESPN maybe getting into it?

Posted by ShanahanMan on 08 May 2010 - 11:22 AM

I'll give you two reasons why the NHL belongs on ESPN.

#1976057 Jiri Hudler, the answer to all of our prayers

Posted by ShanahanMan on 04 May 2010 - 11:18 PM

you guys DO realize Huds will be making 3.5 mil a year right? Thats a lot of mullah for an already cap tight team. Is he really worth it? I personally dont see him making any difference. I'd honestly rather trade his rights away, and use that 3.5 mil for some better assets.


#1971520 WCSF Game 2 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Sharks 4

Posted by ShanahanMan on 02 May 2010 - 09:48 PM

We played more time on the PK in the 3rd then even strength. NHL simply wants the Sharks to move on this year. Thatf****** game was as fake as wrestling.
