#2329042 Wings to Europe: Tracking which DRW players are playing where

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 16 September 2012 - 05:23 PM

I like the idea of Filppula playing over in Finland for Jokerit... That means he will be playing with Pulu... great chance for Pulu to learn how to be an NHL'er and train with one... I think that could be a very good thing for him


#2328488 2012 Lockout Watch

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 12 September 2012 - 06:11 PM

The lockout will happen, to think that some earth shattering agreement could happen overnight is stupid.

The players think they hold the cards, the owners think they hold the cards... It's a stand of and the only way to solve it is months of negotiations and a far solution....

What sucks for us red wings fans is that this will probably mean a season opener of the winter classic. 05 they started the season on hype with the Crosby lottery... Now it will be the winter classic.... It hurts us cause we miss out on 24/7... But atleast we get half a season... And once again we get screwed... First the reallignment, now 24/7.... The players will back down and i respect them for that...

The league asked them to take a pay cut for the good of the league... "make less now to make more later" now that there making "more" they are being asked to cut salaries again... If that was my boss id tell him to screw off....

I still watch that together we can video over and cover again.... I know it's going to be a lockout but
I hope the players don't settle... Guys like Datsyuk shouldn't have to settle when they could make more money in their home town.... Time for the owners to pony up. There will be a lock out, the players have the upperhand, they are organized and determined an I don't blame them.. They took their pay cut for the good of the league in 05... Now it's the owners time...


#2323250 claude giroux had 2 wrist surgeries this off season

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 31 July 2012 - 03:27 PM

he's quickly earning a spot in my "favorite non-wing players" list.


he already earned mine, to the point I despise the flyers with a passion but now am dating a Flyers fan and own a Giroux jersey haha... the guy is dirty and Loved watching him run of Crosby in the playoffs..


#2322339 Doan staying in PHX 4 yrs $21.2 mill

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 26 July 2012 - 09:41 PM

Doan is going to command 5.5-6.5 million per year I think


From the prices I have seen, I'm thinking its going to be closer to the 6.5 million mark. I for one don't want Doan locked up until 38 at close to 7 million per. I think thats WAY to high of a price for a 50 points guy. Yes he brings some pretty good intangibles but to me it isn't worth it.

I know this is going to seem like a farfetched comparison but we pay Filppula under 4 million who just reached 60+ points and is younger by a good margin. Although Filppula does not have the grit and toughness intangibles that Doan has. I would have to say that his defense game and 2 way play is a pretty big intangible in its self.

Doan is not worth the money cause he isn't a one year contract. Next season we will need money to Sign a 1-2 D man, Resign Filppula, Smith, Nyquist, White, and Kindl. Then we also have probably one of the biggest raises of next season in Jimmy Howard. I understand everyone wanted to Spend big on players but besides Suter we need to allow our kids to come up and also pay the players that deserve it. Filppula, Howard, and hopefully Smith and Nyquist.


#2316405 Semin

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 06 July 2012 - 03:03 PM

I do not see him sigbing a one year deal, if we want Semin we are going to need to show more faith in him than any other team. 3-4 year term between 4-6 million... I know that's a big risk but lets face it the high reward part of this is sky high. The talent is there, the question is how often under a new coach. I think we should give him the chance. It's worth the risk in my mind especially at a 4-t million dollar cap hit... Worst case scenario is he stays around 50-60 points (which I doubt) but I bet he is 1st or 2nd on our team with goals those 3-4 years... Just my 2 cents


#2315131 St. James: Wings have inquired about Rick Nash

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 04 July 2012 - 06:26 PM

If were going to trade... I want it to be yandle and sign Semin... Not hating on Nash but our assets need to go to our future number 1 d man


#2312050 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 01 July 2012 - 05:28 PM

what the hell is going on....?


#2311966 St. James: Wings have inquired about Rick Nash

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 01 July 2012 - 05:01 PM

Even if we dont get Parise, give me Semin instead... Even at the same cap hit at least we wont be losing assets.


#2278908 Tortorella Slams Orpik, Crosby, Malkin,...

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 06 April 2012 - 02:51 PM

Did he really say he will just apologize for it?

Also is there really no discipline????


#2275903 3/30 GDT : Predators 4 at Red Wings 1

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 30 March 2012 - 08:42 PM

I'm still confident with this team. Yes it will be a good first round matchup but I still know its regular season. Howard will also have games like this in the playoffs. Either way I know there isn't much hope for this game but I'm not going to just say first round exit after every lose and Stanley cup champs after everywin...


#2275347 Nyquist needs to stay here

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 29 March 2012 - 07:59 AM

Barry Trotz....

I know the guy doesn't have a neck but to put up a 100 points and constantly make playoffs with a bottom 5 payroll is a pretty big feat.


#2272804 3/21 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Rangers 2 (OT)

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 21 March 2012 - 09:12 PM

We are an injury depleted team with a 2nd/3rd string goalie and we played a heck of a game against the best in the East. I'm happy and proud of our guys!

Praying this is the calm before the storm...(us sucking until we just tear s*** up)


#2270213 Realignment dropped for now

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 14 March 2012 - 03:47 PM

please, somebody explain what purpose this fuching (trade/labour/labor) union (PA) serves?


To protect the players so they aren't individuals but instead a group. Otherwise the general managers could just do what they want without the players and their families and lives in mind.
