In Topic: Jean Beliveau Passes at 83

03 December 2014 - 03:24 PM

Mr.Beliveau will always have a place in my heart. 

 

When my father was dying of lung cancer, my younger brother, whom like my dad is a huge Habs fan, sent a letter to the Canadiens organization requesting words of encouragement. Within a week, he received a letter for my dad, it was a hand written letter by Jean Beliveau wishing him the best, and thanking him for his many years of fandom. 

 

I will never forget the look on my dad's face after reading that letter. It truly brought him joy in a very difficult time. 

 

R.I.P. Mr.Beliveau


In Topic: future captains?

So you think two guys who have never played in the nhl (1 who probably won't make it) will be our captains over guys like nyquist Smith Tatar glendening etc... And dk is just a "hunch" but the other two are sure things.


Who said anything about sure things?! I sure didn't.

This thread is speculation on future captains. My guess is no better, no worse than yours, or anyone else's.

I'm looking 8-10 years down the line. Our prospects with (by far) the most leadership abilities are z-nasty and Larkin. Wether they make it to the nhl or not is another question, but both are believed to be nhl material.

C - Nasty
A - Larkin
A - DDK

Nasty oozes leadership. He's been a C every where he's been.
Scouts have already said Larkin is the type of player that will wear a letter in the nhl.
DDK is just a hunch cause he's a stud.

Ken Holland: Hello Daniel, I am calling to personally thank you for your many years of great service. You have been an integral part of the Detroit Red Wings since you signed on with us. However, despite earlier promises, I must regretfully inform you that we will not be offering you a contract for the upcoming season.

Daniel Cleary: Wow, Kenny… I mean… where did this come from?!? I've devoted the last ten years of my life to the Detroit Red Wings. I left money and term on the table last year in Philly so I could play here with the promise of another contract to come...

KH: I know Daniel, and we thank you for that, but based on you performance last year, and how well our prospects played filling in for you and other while the injury bug hit, we feel this is the direction we need to take as a franchise.

DC: C’mon man, you know I only played poorly last year because I was injured. There’s still plenty left in the ol’ gas tank. I know I can get back to my old form, and deep down inside, you know it too Kenny!

KH: That may be the case, Daniel. However we are simply not in a position where we can afford to bring you back on. I’m sorry.

DC: Wow!, what happened to you, man? You use to be cool.

KH: What?!? I’m still cool, Daniel.

DC: No, you’re not. You've changed man, and not for the better. Loyalty use to mean something to you. I guess it doesn't anymore.

KH: Loyalty is very important to me.

DC: Whatever, man. You’re all talk. Take your lies and broken promises elsewhere. Talk to you later…

KH: Wait! Don’t hang up! Let me see what I can do, Daniel. I’ll prove to you that I’m still cool. I’ll call your agent and see if we can’t work something out right away; perhaps a two-way contract?

DC: Two-way contracts aren't cool, man.

KH: You’re right, you’re right… I knew that. Definitely not cool. I can do better... just let me talk to your agent, ok? We’ll work something out, don’t worry Daniel.

DC: Cool, man. I’ll see you when camp opens. Ciao.

KH: Yeah, yeah… Ciao!

So how are we acquiring a roster like this? Who do you give up for Burns and Wheeler??

 

I'm guessing he sent Weiss and Tatar to the Jets for Wheeler, plus Nyquist and Miller to the Sharks for Burns. (based solely on who he left out of his lineup)
