#2428562 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 07 July 2013 - 04:04 PM


Agreed. Not sure whats up with this guy, coming over, playing HALF A SEASON and then acting like he's the big s***. 


Go get Garth Snow to throw money at you if thats how you want to play it. 


Well, currently the Islanders have about $22 million in cap space so I wouldn't call it out of the question.


I also think it's hilarious that they still owe Alexei Yashin $2.2 mil for the next TWO seasons!

#2428340 So.. what are our expectations for this roster?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 07 July 2013 - 07:57 AM

I expect more goal scoring and for the young guys to either step up their game or have a bit of an adjustment period (still).  As for where the Wings end up in the standings or playoffs, that's never a sure thing to predict so I'll just say that I'll enjoy watching this new version of the roster!

Man, that new Dallas sweater is absolutely hideous...

Wild looking to deal Clutterbuck per Bob McKenzie.

#2423288 Jonathan Ericsson - should we consider trading him?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 29 June 2013 - 05:23 AM

I remember when Ericsson signed his current contract and a lot of forum members thought it was overpayment. Doesn't look so bad now, eh?

Quenneville shouldn't even have been nominated.  After the NBC crew explained that it took Scotty Bowman talking to Kane to get him going again, it seems to me that any off-ice "coaching" that Quenneville gets credit for is actually all Scotty's doing.

#2418793 2013 Stanley Cup Finals - Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 09 June 2013 - 07:48 AM

I think it will be a close series, but I NEVER want to see Patrick Kane win another Cup.  The Bruins know how to get it done so I'm hoping they can seal the deal.

The Blackhawks will do anything to try to get more PP time, since that seems to be just about the only way they can score on the Wings.

#2405904 Kane, Moulson, St. Louis up for Lady Byng

Kane being nominated is an insult to the award and all previous winners. Hard to not take his off-ice conduct into account here.

I see the "classy" Chicago fans are already at it with their "Detroit sucks" chant.  Let's shut these idiots up.

It's nice to have a "New Holmstrom" who annoys the crap out of people and makes room for Dats and Z. All four of our goals last night were a direct result of screens in front of Hiller. 3 of those were Abby in front.


There will probably never be anyone better at screening the goalie and redirecting pucks as Tomas Holmstrom, but Franzen, Abby and Cleary do a pretty decent job of "Holmstroming by committee," if you will.  It seems like this season there have been a number of goals that bounced off of some part of Cleary's body just because he happened to be in the right spot.

Why is everyone blaming Smith for that goal?  It was Quincey who threw that pass right to a Duck in the neutral zone then got caught standing still.  If Quincey makes the right play, that shot never hits the net or the crossbar.

Why do so many of you want Holland to horde prospects?   After years of letting our prospects over-ripen in Grad Rapids, we literally have a glut of prospects.   Where are any of these guys supposed to play?  We could deal 5 of our prospects and never miss them.  They barely have room to fit in Tatar and Nyquist - where are they going to put the other 10 guys that are in waiting?  Make a mega-deal for Vanek/Stafford/Pominville.   Give them are first two picks and 5 prospects.  I don't care who ... Jurco, Jarnkrok, Sproul, Mursak, Tatar, Nyqvist, Sheehan, Oullet, the list goes on and on.  They're not accomplishing anything if they're gonna be stuck in GR for the next 3 years.  


While the Wings certainly do have a good number of prospects that could be used in a trade, giving up 2 of them and a pick for a 41 year-old rental winger to play for a team that (in my opinion) isn't a true Cup contender this season would be a waste.


If the Wings are getting Vanek for a few prospects and a pick/s, then yeah.  But, so far I don't mind Kenny sitting on the Bouwmeester and Jagr deals.

Wings were in it on Bouwmeester but not willing to move a 1st-rd pick in the package. Which frankly, for Detroit, was right call


Good to see that Kenny isn't going to give up that 1st round pick so easily.  With such a deep draft this coming offseason, I'd be surprised to see the Wings make many trades involving draft picks.

#2372909 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie)


With Western Michigan out of NCAA playoffs, sought-after UFA D Dan DeKeyser will be in Toronto Tuesday to meet with advisors/field offfers.


So, we won't know until at least Tuesday, it seems.
