Jesus Kenny...I thought signing Williams was a bad move...

Shelley to phi, uk redwing to cry


You're obsessed. Do you not have your own life to follow?

Besides, Shelley was never on my wishlist in the first place.

Please no Mike Modano. Absolutely waste of a roster spot. Might as well re-sign Maltby. At least Maltby only acts like a ****** ON the ice.

I hope he isnt coveted today like Orr was last year, if he is a secondary player like he should be (Thanks Burkey) we'll sign him sometime this week.


I liked the "hes not part of their plans TODAY" bit. :ph34r:

I just hope we sign at least a defenceman today. Or a scoring veteran for Grand Rapids.

No, he's not what you want. He's still capable of being a .5 ppg player and would fit perfectly on the third line.


No. He's not what DETROIT needs. We already have scorers and plenty of them. Players who put up points is not what we are lacking.

I REALLY REALLY hope the Wings sign Modano. He's a perfect fit here.


Good God no. Why is he a fit? He's old. He's soft. Not what we need. At all.

I cant wait to watch the frenzy for hours with the slightest hope Detroit will do something before giving up and doing something else...like knitting.

If we want a heavyweight enforcer we could go Brashear/


Nope. Way past his best. Plus, he's a classless thug which gives enforcers a bad name. He's handed the only beatdown (during the lockout) that was so violent it made me feel sick. He was sat on a guy he'd already Ko'd hitting him again and again.

So no.

I'd have to say pass on every one of those guys :lol:
I think we have better options via free angecy or bringing someone up from GR. Nothing against you posting this, just saying I am not to much of a fan of any of them.


Im only posting it as news. I'd pass on all of them as well.

Well...I wouldn't say no to Voros if he was a bit cheaper ;) (hes on 900k at the moment)


#2006520 Red Wings make qualifying offers to nine players

Posted by uk_redwing on 29 June 2010 - 08:30 AM

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings made qualifying offers to nine players before Monday’s deadline, retaining their rights when they become restricted free agents Thursday.

In addition to making qualifying offers, as expected, to Darren Helm, Justin Abdelkader, Patrick Eaves, Drew Miller and Derek Meech, the Red Wings also qualified defensemen Sergei Kolosov and Ole-Kristian Tollefsen, forward Jamie Tardif and goaltender Daniel Larsson.

They severed ties with forwards Evan McGrath and Johan Ryno, who were not extended qualifying offers and now are unrestricted free agents.

We had Sean Avery


10 years, 9 years, same thing.


#2006033 JODY SHELLEY

Posted by uk_redwing on 28 June 2010 - 10:54 AM

If that is the case we may as well trade for Colton Orr. At least he can pound the f*** out of people.


Why do that when we can get Boogaard for cheaper?

Already been posted.

And that was some old school hockey Probie would be proud of right there.


#2004309 Evgeni Ryasenski

Posted by uk_redwing on 24 June 2010 - 10:19 PM

Did a bit of research...all I found out was that he got a 5 min boarding major some time in the 08-09 season.

Height 5'10'' (178 cm)
Weight 176 (80 kg)

Meh. Lets see what he does in GR.

Edit: Turns out he's actually 5'11, 194lbs...now Im interested :ph34r:


#2004211 Nill says the Wings could trade up

It's an internet reputation system. It's not like if the world ends tomorrow we can exchange positive rankings for food.

With that being said, enjoy a +1 lol.


No, but it allows my head to grow that little bit more.
