Holland's best offseason this decade?




#2618847 Voynov pleads "No Contest" to Domestic Violence Charge

Posted by Bannedforlife on 03 July 2015 - 10:47 AM

He won't serve 90-days... if he does, it'll be min. security, house arrest or half-way house type situation I'm sure.
 
The probation and counseling are appropriate.
Thing that is a head scratcher for me.  8 hours of community service?
 
How skipping the 90 days of meaningless jailtime and give him 2160 hours of community service (90 days x 24 hours) that has to be served at a battered women's shelter.

You're talking out of your ass.
 
First of all, since he'll be serving time in jail, not prison, there is no such thing as minimum or maximum security. There's just jail. It's the same for everybody. And LA County's main facility, the Twin Towers, is no joke. Unless he PC's up, he'll be spending his 90 days in a 80 man cell full of gang bangers, drug addicts, and murders awaiting trial.
 
Speaking of those 90 days, since his crime is violent in nature he would be ineligible for any sort of work release program, house arrest or anything of the sort. I'm not certain, but I don't even think he is going to get credit for good behavior. I'd be willing to bet good money that he'll be serving the full 90 days in one of the worst facilities in the nation.
 
This isn't the 80's or something bro. His lawyer might have gotten him the most favorable outcome possible, but California's DOC takes violent and domestic abuse sentences VERY seriously, and his semi-celebrity status will not buy him any sort of preferential treatment out here.

I wonder if Cleary's wife will enjoy the weather in Toronto?

Whoa! No need to get vulgar bro!

Well, look who decided to come late! Listen, im no Semin expert, but the sole fact that he shoots those long, hard blasts with his right hand would make him a welcome addition to the group. Plus, as long as Holland makes sure that we're protected during negotiations, we really won't be exposing ourselves to catching any SPCs that we'll regret later on.

Yea, but it's a nice break from the usual grinding that goes on around here. Sometimes this forum makes me feel like a compulsive mass debater.

Geez, every time I think this thread has finally climaxed, you've come back with another one! I guess we haven't even touched the tip of it yet!

 

 

 

EDIT: I just realized that you tossed off climax on the last one. Blew it right by me I guess...

That's true. Plus, you can only learn so much from playing with yourself. At some point you just need to jump in and get wet.

I would just hate for him to shoot prematurely all over the place. You know how it is with these young kids and their first time...

I'm starting to just get the feeling that none of the other kids like playing with us :(

Yea, but the way he picks that first is basically going to be a third




#2606721 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Holland has spoken to the media. Apparently the Wings drafted a "letter of compensation" that teams must sign if they want to have serious discussions with Babcock. They'll get a 3rd round pick. Also, it seems like this window closes May 25th.

There you go. I guarantee you, no team is going to think a third round pick us too much to wrap this up now rather than waiting for june.

There's many a slip between a cup and a lip.

Doesn't work that way unless Babcock's under contract. If he comes to a verbal agreement with a team, they can just wait to sign him on July 1st while he's no longer Wings property.
 
Anyway, Babcock's as good as gone.


If the best coach in the league agrees to sign with your team during an exclusive negotiating window, and you tell him, 'naw, let's hold off for a month so I don't have to give up a third round draft pick to get you,' dont you think that might make him reconsider his options?


#2604790 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Posted by Bannedforlife on 29 April 2015 - 11:38 PM

Raise your hand if you actually think that a roster player or prospect will be traded this off-season. Or that Holland will be fired. Or that Howard will not start the majority of games next year. Or that the government had anything to do with 9/11.

 

If you said yes to any one of those, you are a crazy person.




#2586418 Zach Hyman May Seek Free Agency

Posted by Bannedforlife on 29 March 2015 - 09:39 AM

I know he sucked until Dylan Larkin made him look super duper good.  Screw this kid, he's trying to cash in on one good season that a rookie center gifted him. 

Are you saying that Hyman is a bust?
