#2312241 Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

Posted by b.shanafan14 on 01 July 2012 - 06:31 PM

Great day so far.
-Inked a potential masked assasin in Brunner for peanuts
- the monster has a ton of untapped potential and with Bedard and our Swedish room, and limited playing time I think hell do great
-Sammy takes alllot of flack around here ... hes still got game. He had a terrible start last year because he had a severe adductor tear repaired. Big body, decent wheels, heavy shot ... yeah hes streaky, but what euro isnt?
-Tootoo - bargain of the day IMO. Imagine him and Adbelkader smashing dmen on the forecheck? Oh, and no more tootoo whistles in Nashville - thank f***!

If there was any question that Detroit was serious this off-season management has shown the fanbase and the free-agent pool that they arentf****** around. If Suter comes Ill be happy with what we've got BUT have a sneaking suspicion another big name top 6 fwd will follow him. Pretty pumped right now.


Well put. I admit, I think Samuelsson is an overpayment, and Tootoo kind of makes me noxious, but overall, we haven't missed out on the big fish yet, and some good depth signings. In the end, however, it all hinges on the big fish. The concern now is that these were not depth signings, but "instead of", "plan B", or "tweek" signings which Kenny has been doing the last few years.

Get Suter and one good scoring forward and I'll be content. Do that, and it could very well be the best off-season in a decade. Time will tell (and hopefully not too much time).

I'd rather have Nash than Pairise. Nash definitely has 50 goal potential... I hope we keep Franzen in this deal. We'll have goal scoters throughout the lineup Sammy, Nash, Franzen and our bottom 6 is quite solid I must say

All other 29 teams have inquired about Nash, nothing to see here.

Yeah, he's grossly overpaid for his production. It's pretty comical that Crosby only gets paid 900k more than a guy who hasn't potted 80pts even once in is NHL career. :lol:


You don't think the team he plays for has something to do with that.


#2292897 Hometown discount for Nick next year?

Posted by Krystal on 19 April 2012 - 06:50 PM

Is he not killing penalties right now because of his injury or because of his age/speed?



It's because his ankle still isn't 100%. On the PK, he's putting that bad foot forward as a shot-blocking foot and they don't want to risk him being out of the lineup entirely.


#2292542 Too many damn pretty boys

Posted by AtomicPunk on 18 April 2012 - 08:19 PM

Too many floaters on this team right now. Also too many people resting on their past success. If we want to get real, there are a lot of players that need to get turned over. Cleary, Holmstrom, Flip, Hudler, even Franzen and Bertuzzi. We need youth, grit, speed and hunger. Don't want to turn into the Pistons that "kept the band together too long".

How quickly people forget these "pretty boys" won the Cup in 2008 and was only 1 win away from repeating in 2009.


The year is 2012.

The Wings: trailing Nashville 3-1 in the first round.

2008 and 2009: irrelevant.
