#2013308 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by uk_redwing on 09 July 2010 - 05:34 PM

Your posts are being minus'd because by not wanting to sign Modano you basically admit you don't realize how important depth is because Modano would be an incredible depth signing. Without Modano our bottom 6 is average, with Modano it's one of the best in the league. Combine that with one of the better top sixes in the league and you're looking at making a really deep run in the playoffs. Like I said before, we won in 08 because of our depth. We were out in the second round this year because we had none.


Our bottom six now had Jiri Hudler? Do you know what our bottom lines lack MORE than scoring? Grit. Toughness. The ability to go out there and crash and bang and create some energy for the rest of the team to feed off. Something the 08 team had. Modano isnt exactly a massive increase scoring depth anyway is it? His numbers have been increasingly declining since the lockout.

So Im getting minused for my OPINION that Modano doesnt give us anything we lack, whilst you sit on your high horse "basically admitting" you've no idea that a team needs to be balanced in all aspects of the game to win a Cup? Interesting.

is it that important to you that your post doesn't get a - number? do we win something for having the highest + post or something. i don't get it.


+/- increases the size of my Epenis.

I just don't like to see people (not just me) having their posts with that red box despite the fact there's nothing wrong with what they've written.

Someone pro-Modano went on a minus spree on page 24. Some people need to grow up an realise you don't just minus posts you don't agree with. The whole plus/minus thing isn't for people's opinions, it's how they're put across.

(waits for this post to be minsued to prove my point)

I watched quite a few over the last few years and saw DRASTIC improvements in each of those seasons... he also looked pretty damn good out there last year, so I don't know which games you were watching??


Every game? Me and drumnj stream them.

Thanks, I'm glad I'm not alone.


Definately not alone. Theres quite a few of us who don't want him here.

We just keep quiet because we keep having our posts minused ;)


#2011930 Ritola, Miller or Eaves?

Where's the option to not sign Modano? I vote for that.

Modano is still a .5 ppg player, Abby is not.


You mean he WAS a .5ppg player last season. Season before that it was .6ppg. Season before that it was .75ppg. You see where this is going?

Yeah awesome, lets sign a 40 year old and dispose of potentially many years service of Eaves and Ritola. :thumbup:


But we get a bit more 3rd line scoring! Because everyones always said "those Wings lack a bit of SCORING"...

No one has ever said that. Lets ignore our problems and defense and on the 4th line...what we need is more scoring even though Hudler's back <_<

Between $1m and $1.5m is what Ive just read. Kenny really wants his ally in the war against fighting in his building and is prepared to give up a younger guy or two as well as our ability to find a solid 3rd pairing dman.

Awesome.

Best enforcer of all time and will no doubt will live on as the most famous and most admired in the history of the sport.

RIP Probie. At least Jesus knows someone has his back.

Modano will only play in the western conference, and the closer to Cali/his wife, the better. He's already said so.


Hopefully that rules us out.


#2009414 Wings Sign Joey MacDonald

Posted by uk_redwing on 02 July 2010 - 06:48 PM

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings added the goaltending depth they were seeking for AHL affiliate Grand Rapids Friday by bringing back a familiar face, signing Joey MacDonald.

The Red Wings also signed veteran minor-league centers Jamie Johnson and Chris Minard to play for the Griffins.

Good news for Grand Rapids.

Edit: I missed out the "a" in MacDonald. Someone fix it please :cool:
