#2378300 4/1 GDT : Avalanche 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 01 April 2013 - 09:03 PM

Smith makes a lot of dumb plays.

He has only played 38 games in the NHL.  There's going to be growing pains. 




#2360109 Suppossed Winter Classic Jerseys...

Posted by S.H.M.B. on 23 February 2013 - 10:51 PM

So why am I not seeing this Logo/City on the front of these jerseys?  Am I missing something?

I hope I didn't make this too complicated

They look really cheap. I live vintage looking jerseys, but these look amateurish, even for those.

I'd rather him focus on taking the body in the corners and the forecheck.

 

Playing hockey would be a priority for me, rather then throwing punches.

Somewhere in the Chicago suburbs Brett Lebda is holding a red wings voodoo doll and waiting for his phone to ring.


#2313425 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 03 July 2012 - 08:12 AM

Tootoo sucks ass and half the people in here aref****** morons who know nothing about hockey. He isn't good by any measurement and he is the type of player I NEVER want on my team. Then they gave him a contract that is too big in term and money. He was a healthy scratch for Nashville and worse than everyone on our team and many players of ours in the system. He isn't good defensively, not good offensively, doesn't fight for pucks, doesn't hit well, doesn't pass well, doesn't score, he doesn't play gritty, he is only dirty.

That doesn't win you games, check Avery who is the same type of player, except he had some skill. It is far more likely he does something stupid and someone retaliates on Pavel or someone. The guy was so worthless he never helped the Preds beat us... Last year he was a healthy scratch for them half the games. I look it at this way...

You could have tried for Doan with the money spent on Sam and Tootoo... you could have signed an enforcer for less... or you could have just let the youngsters play with contracts that are half as much as him. Miller, Emmerton, Mursak, Eaves, and Jokaim are all better than Tootoo.

I know half of the people around think this is some sort of grand signing that indicates that we will be a tougher team.

Toughness isn't something measured in hits or fights. It is winning battles for the puck and taking hits and crosschecks going to the tough parts of the ice for loose pucks and goals. The Wings were lacking in this, and still are after wasting 4.9 million yesterday. If these were one year contracts I would ***** about them but I would live with them. These might screw us over in the long term as well.

Just hypothetically, if Weber was available next year and Suter signs here... do you think they could get Weber with 7 million wrapped up in Bertuzzi, Sammy, and Tootoo?!?!? No way in hell. Yet if they didn't sign them to awful contracts prematurely, there would be a chance to bring in Weber and have guys like Tatar, Jurco, and Jarnkrok play for 900k a piece instead.

The time is here for youth, yet three guys are signed that block the way. I never liked any of these guys, and certainly don't at this price.


I must have missed the thread where you announced that you were hired to replace Holland because of your extensive knowledge. I also missed the announcement stating that only ******-nozzles are entitled to be correct with their opinions. While I kind of agree with you on some points, you discount people on here asf****** morons because they disagree with you. You could just as easily be wrong with your opinions and assumptions, so I don't think there is any need carry on like that.

edit: spelling and clarification. clarification is that you are ****** (pronounced doosh) nozzle.


#2312677 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Right handed shot. 20 goal guy. Knows the system. Solid in his own end. Could have done worse. Welcome back Sammy

#2307033 Nashville to trade Suter's rights?

Posted by amato on 12 June 2012 - 09:48 PM

So you wouldn't give up Mursak/Emmerton/Andersson/Kindl ??


Not for rights for a UFA, no.


#2306443 Red Wings Prepared to Offer Hudler Contract

Posted by Shaman on 10 June 2012 - 08:56 PM

If the Wings sign Hudler I will completely have lost all faith in Ken Holland.

That has to to be the dumbest thing I've heard on this board in a long time. Why?

Holland could announce tomorrow he and Hudler have decided to sign him to a 3 year 9 million dollar contract. Meaning they have locked him up at a reasonable rate for a guy who can give you 20+ goals and 50+ points a season.

Hudler will be back 25+ goal scorers don't grow on trees.....


#2306407 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Posted by redwings1914 on 10 June 2012 - 06:04 PM

Don't let the door hit you on the ass Stuart. I don't feel bad for anyone who makes multiple million dollars a year in a occupation that is not family friendly and then complains about not getting to see their family. If he really wanted to see them more he'd just retire.


#2296355 Who will be Vancouver's 2012-13 goalie?

Posted by Nightfall on 23 April 2012 - 05:41 PM

He was never one of the NHL's elite goaltenders. He was a steady, reliable goalie, but never a flashy one. He had some brilliant stretches, but he was not of the likes of, say, Brodeur, Roy, and Hasek.

Thats funny. He wasn't like Brodeur, Roy, or Hasek, yet the numbers say differently. He has more cups that Hasek, and just one less than Roy and Brodeur.

I wouldn't classify him as a second tier goalie, thats for sure. He was definitely a top tier goalie in the NHL. The numbers speak for themselves.

4m for the next 8 years for a player who has said he is not motivated to play in the regular season and then has become invisible in the playoffs the last two years (his only defense for his lackluster regular season was that he "turns it on in the playoffs") is a bad deal.

You have proof of that statement or are you just making that up?


#2296252 Who will be Vancouver's 2012-13 goalie?

Posted by Crymson on 23 April 2012 - 11:37 AM

He chose him with Team Canada in 2010 (an easy gig I know), but took him over someone like Osgood who was pretty stable at the time and who he knew very well with regards to what he could do. I think Stevie would take a look.


Osgood was never a first-tier goalie. Luongo has been for most of his career.
