#2017932 Wings should sign Paul Kariya

Posted by Bannedforlife on 22 July 2010 - 02:51 AM

He made 6 million last year. I doubt he's going to want to come here for what we have available to offer him.

#2014670 RUMOR: Wings Offer 1-year Contract to Maltby

Posted by Bannedforlife on 13 July 2010 - 08:15 PM

I think it's funny that they offered him a contract and he didn't immediately jump all over it. I wonder if San Jose and Minnesota will be making him an offer as well...

#2012619 Brett Lebda signs with Toronto

Posted by Bannedforlife on 08 July 2010 - 01:00 PM

It would be something to see Lebda paired with Jeff Finger.

I wouldn't mind seeing some hot Finger-Lebda action...

#2010438 Getflaf for Zetter

Posted by Bannedforlife on 05 July 2010 - 02:16 PM

The thing that gets to me is when 90% of the board complains about the team not being big/strong/tough enough, but when someone poses a hypothetical trade for one of the premier power forwards in the league, the same people lambaste him with a whopping 34 negs. Really?

Here's the bottom line. Zetterberg is great. Getzlaf is great. If you want a team that can physically intimidate the opposition, you build it around Getzlaf. If that's not important to you, you pick Zetterberg. It's that simple.

#2008887 TSN: Discussion of Modano To Wings

Posted by Bannedforlife on 01 July 2010 - 09:32 PM

Not what the Wings need, but I certainly wouldn't complain about it. I'd rather see Modano signed than Maltby.

This is so right on.

#2004018 Cuts Continue for Hawks - Fraser Sent to Edmonton

Posted by Bannedforlife on 24 June 2010 - 12:39 PM

Stan Bowman has come out and said since yesterday that his back is no longer against the wall. If Niemi and Hjalmarsson are signed for 3 mil or less, the hawks might have to part with only one more player. It wont be Sharp, it wont be Bolland. It would most likely be Versteeg, or for that matter Reasoner. There is also some speculation that Kane did not hit all his bonuses. No one knows yet.

:lol: What is supposed to come out and say? "Despite the fact that yesterday we traded a key contributor to our first Stanley Cup in half a century, our cap situation is still completely f***ed. Please, someone come save us before the league is forced to step in and clean up our mess for us."

#2003981 Savard to waive no trade clause

Posted by Bannedforlife on 24 June 2010 - 11:48 AM

I know its stupid to even think about because it can't happen, but if we were able to get him without giving up Hudler, Filppula or Cleary, we would be able to roll the 3 best scoring lines in the league. (We would also have to make Draper go away in this little fantasy...)

Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Tomas Holmstrom ($1.875m)
Johan Franzen ($3.955m) / * Marc Savard ($4.007m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($1.938m)
Daniel Cleary ($2.800m) / Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Jiri Hudler ($2.875m)
* Darren Helm ($0.659m) / * Justin Abdelkader ($0.935m) / * Patrick Eaves ($0.550m)
* Drew Miller ($0.578m)
Nicklas Lidstrom ($6.200m) / Niklas Kronwall ($3.000m)
Brad Stuart ($3.750m) / Brian Rafalski ($6.000m)
Jonathan Ericsson ($0.900m) / Jakub Kindl ($0.883m)
Doug Janik ($0.512m)
Jimmy Howard ($0.717m) / Chris Osgood ($1.417m)
(these totals are compiled using the bonus cushion)
ROSTER: 22; CAP:$59.4m; PAYROLL: $59.334m; CAP ROOM: $0.066m BONUSES: $0.000m

#2002791 Cap to $59.64 million?

Posted by Bannedforlife on 22 June 2010 - 04:54 PM

Awesome! Now we can sign Maltby to a slight raise and just enjoy the rest of the summer! :ph34r:

#2002640 Do Wings fans want another Yzerman?

Posted by Bannedforlife on 22 June 2010 - 02:11 PM

I'd rather we find another Lidstrom than another Yzerman...

#2001434 NHL top 10 hits of the year 2009-2010

Posted by Bannedforlife on 19 June 2010 - 03:00 PM

i didn't realize those were big words you would need a thesaurus for

A thesaurus is a reference book that lists words together with their synonyms. It would be helpful when attempting to describe the same thing 10 different ways. Like a big hockey hit, for instance. I hope that you found this information helpful. Or valuable, invaluable, beneficial, contributive, useful, suitable, practical, applicable, constructive, important...

Our season is surely done for

#1999516 Hudler+4th line grinder

Posted by Bannedforlife on 14 June 2010 - 03:54 PM

People say that because his whole time as GM he inherited a great team, and didn't have to do a whole lot to keep it great,(he isn't really god like some people think), now that the team is coming to a point where they may not be the best in the league without changes he might have to shake things up.

I guess it depends on your definition of shake up. I believe Ken is the kind of GM who would never move one of his players once he has identified them as part of his core. Cleary doesn't fall into that group, but Flip and Kronwall certainly do. Even if he ever does decide to make some moves, I doubt it would happen next year. Lidstrom will most likely retire, and whoever he brings in as his replacement will be all the shaking we will see for a while.

Speaking of which, Weber, Doughty, Seabrook, Johnson, Schenn and Yandle will all be RFAs next year, and Markov and Chara will be UFAs. If Kenny were to pull off one of those promising RFAs with an offer sheet, I think that would be one of the most impressive things he has accomplished in his time as GM.

#1998951 CHI Police are Top Notch

Posted by Bannedforlife on 13 June 2010 - 12:09 PM

Ok, now the Hawks obsession is getting to be a bit much. (8 Hawks related threads on the first page).

The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup. The Wings did not. Everything's still going to be okay.

People do tend to talk about current events. Wouldn't it be more ridiculous if there were 8 Crosby related threads on the first page?

#1998580 Salary Cap rewards for cup finalists

Posted by Bannedforlife on 12 June 2010 - 12:01 PM

So if a team wins the cup 3 years in a row they could potentially have a salary cap 9 million dollars higher than everyone else? I wonder what would happen the 4th year?

I picked Summer's Eve. It reminds me of a warm tropical rain.
