#2685068 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

Posted by GoalieManPat on 25 August 2016 - 05:43 PM

Datsyuk is going to light it up this season. 

 

Especially if every goalie just kinda falls over before he shoots like this guy did




#2684890 Tom McCollum heads to LA for PTO w/Kings

Posted by GoalieManPat on 16 August 2016 - 08:37 PM

this could fire up the top prospects and trades convo in the official offseason trade. After all he was our top draft pick in 08, and gone for nothing

Its not like the Wings let an NHL asset walk for free. The guy was a bust. 




#2684691 Patrick Roy steps down as Head Coach and VP of Hockey Operations

Posted by GoalieManPat on 11 August 2016 - 07:46 PM

I'm elated at the Avs failing under Joe Sakic though. That clown is the most overrated player in the history of the NHL.

 

Are you kidding? Sakic was basically Steve Yzermans hockey doppelganger. Saying Sakic is overrated is saying Yzerman was. The fact that Brett Hull physically grabbed and sat Avery down and told him hes not allowed to talk to "Mr Sakic" shows the level of respect that guy earned. Through the whole rivalry Sakic was the only guy you couldnt hate. Pure class. 

 

As for Roy leaving

#2684652 Fox Sports DET to stream DRW games online

Posted by GoalieManPat on 10 August 2016 - 06:28 PM

Out of market is easy because you can use Game Center (except for the absurd number of blackouts for national broadcasts.)

Local when you don't have cable has been tough as there is no streaming that doesn't blackout all the games.

 

Gamecenter + https://www.unblock-us.com/ = legit streaming option with no blackouts ever. Takes 5 minutes to setup for the year.


when I was thinking on wether I should get the NHL GCL I came across a Dutch site,I think it was hockeystreams.com, that for a yearly subscription you'd get every NHL game plus AHL, KHL and some other leagues, I can't remember exactly but I think there weren't any blackout problems. 

 

I remember reading somewhere it wasn't approved by the NHL so was affraid of losing my money and went for GCL instead

 

Apparently there was a thread here in LGW about the aforementioned site

http://www.letsgowin...ckeystreamscom/

 

Last I heard hockeystreams is shut down. Since it was a non legit site all those people that gave them money got nothing in return. 




#2683900 Red Wings All-Bust Roster

Posted by GoalieManPat on 25 July 2016 - 11:03 PM

Curtis Joseph

 

What are you takling about? In his two years here during the playoffs he had a GAA of 1.75 and a save % of .928. Top multi year playoff numbers for any Wings goalie since his time here. Not to mention he handled the Hasek s***show of 03 pretty darn well.




#2683172 Glendening signs 4-year, $1.8m AAV extension

Posted by GoalieManPat on 14 July 2016 - 12:52 PM

I cant wait for other GM's to lowball KH on every trade offer this offseason as they know he HAS to make a trade.

Helm + something (pick, young prospect) for Trouba ftw !!

 

It would be very bad form to trade a guy a couple days after you re-sign him. It would look very bad on the organization. Especially since he signed for less than what he probably would have gotten on market.




#2681831 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

Posted by GoalieManPat on 01 July 2016 - 10:36 PM

No risk high reward signing. The worste outcome is he bombs and they drop him next offseason. If he finds his scoring touch again though he could become a valuable asset come deadline day. Flip a 3rd tier FA into a couple young guys or a draft pick would be a great hockey move.

#2681728 Steve Ott signs 1 year, $800k deal with Detroit

This would have been a great pickup 5 years ago. 




#2681424 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by GoalieManPat on 01 July 2016 - 01:02 PM

6 years for a 32 yr old isn't bad to you?  :eh:

Better than a 4 year deal for a 36 year old. Shorter term would have been great but outside of a top D finding a center is this teams biggest need. Him and Backes were the best options out there and they both got pretty much the same deal. He had to take on length to get the player. If you think your going to get deals on even decent players in Free Agency nowadays you are wrong. Every deal is going to be overpayment. 




#2681389 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by GoalieManPat on 01 July 2016 - 12:43 PM

Many of us aren't happy with the length of the contract.

 

Myself - I wish Kenny had the cojones to make a trade to improve the team...He's too worried about giving up some prospect, roster player, or draft pick/s.

 

Exactly the last couple years show he needs to throw in extra years to get a guy. Had he pulled out and got nobody people would have roasted him even more.




#2681357 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by GoalieManPat on 01 July 2016 - 12:32 PM

Its amazing people are banging on Holland for signing him instead of other FA's. Its like you people believe that Holland gets his choice from of all the guys available. It takes two to get a contract done. Kenny can be willing to sign a guy but if he has no interest in coming to Detroit its not going to happen. Detroit is not a prime spot for FA's anymore. We need to realize this. In order to get guys here you are seeing Kenny have to give and extra year or pay more salary. This signing isnt bad at all.

Bringing miller back may be the same thing they did with cleary. If a kid beats him out in camp, down to Rapids he goes...

 

Except it took 3 years of over the hill Cleary for that to happen.

Posted by GoalieManPat on 28 June 2016 - 07:26 PM

While I would love a player like Lucic I dont trust the guy. Ive said before I feel he will be the next NHL to come out as having a major chemical dependence problem. Dude has to be coked up to act the way he does sometimes. Dont want him getting a big money contract. I would have loved the Martin rumors had Miller not gotten the new contract. Only really makes sense if Holland is looking to offer up some of our younger bottom six guys in a move for a dman but in reality who would want any of them outside of AA. You cant trade away AA with Helm walking. Hes a direct replacement with a higher ceiling. It seems Detroit is exploring everyone on the market. Maybe thats Kenny's plan. Be in on everyone so nobody knows your true plans.


And he's one hit away from being Franzen 2.0.

 

So is Crosby but that wouldnt stop every team in the league from jumping at the chance to acquire him
