#2532409 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

Posted by WingsallTheway on 17 July 2014 - 07:52 PM

If we can give Quincey 4.5, then we can give Dekeyser the same contract

Good news for Cleary's knees, and thus, the core of our team

Cleary bringing the worst out of some people, isn't he?

Good, now Holland can use this video to entice other GM's into trading him for a legwand

#2531633 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by WingsallTheway on 11 July 2014 - 04:04 PM

If tatar gets traded im done... ESPECIALLY for Mike green


Him and helm are the only guys who bring it every shift... I seriously think Tatar has the most heart in the league.


Hell, hes the only guy on our whole team with any sort of character.

How about,


Cleary can play on the powerplay

#2531139 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by WingsallTheway on 10 July 2014 - 04:09 PM

I seriously think Holland is becoming my most hated person in sports.


Actually, he is my most hated person in sports.


My roomate is from Nigeria and has watched his first ever hockey games (about 10) with me last season. He laughs that Quincey and Cleary are re signed. 


The fact that he understands that these players shouldn't be on the team but Holland doesn't says alot.

#2529510 Sami Salo a good option for wings?

Posted by WingsallTheway on 02 July 2014 - 02:14 PM

I just don't see the point in signing a rental veteran Dman at this point, especially since we signed quincey again.


The only thing that would have been a good signing is a Dman such as Erhoff or Niskanen that can improve the team now and in the future. Because that wasn't possible, we should have just stayed put and went with what we have. Signing Salo might help us make the 8th seed again, but it doesnt allow any of the rookies to get any playing time. 


IF we were to be fortunate enough to rid of Kindl/Lash then a vet such as Salo would be great. But who is Holland to cut dead weight?

#2525358 Alfie informs Wings he wants to return

Posted by WingsallTheway on 23 June 2014 - 06:42 PM

Not pumped about this at all.


He was extremely ineffective for long stretches of the season and now hes just a year older, with a bad back.


This off -season is looking more and more like its going to be the same old stuff. Excited to see which fringe NHLer 6th pairing defenceman we will be signing next

#2524529 Todd Bertuzzi will not be re-signed

Posted by WingsallTheway on 19 June 2014 - 07:43 AM

As bad as hes  become, I'd still take him over cleary. 


But what do I know, im not Ken Holland

#2524273 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

It was probably just to hell him not to piss off the wings or he would get his ass beat just like his daddy and the whole team did.


By who ? 

#2522949 Dan Boyle's rights traded to the Islanders…..

Posted by WingsallTheway on 05 June 2014 - 08:12 PM

Boyle is a shell of his former self. He was a great defenceman a few years ago but has found himself on the wrong side of 35; and just like most defenceman at this age, is not able to keep up with the new NHL. 


Sharks fans generally agree that his time has come as well, they are not upset at him leaving. If he isn't good enough for their team, he shouldnt be for ours either based on the amount of kids we need to start having playing time

#2519756 Gaborik?

Posted by WingsallTheway on 08 May 2014 - 07:41 PM


Vanek ? The plays they could setup would be incredible.


Great shot - Check

Great passing - Check

High Hockey IQ and vision - Check

Net Front Presence - Check

Great shot deflector - Check

PPG player on a bad team (Buffalo) - Check

PP Specialist - Check






The main factor is style of play... Sid is a FREAK along the boards which would be amazing with dats, plus he can set up/finish while not being a liability on defence. Hes also a power forward
Kane is basically a dats 0.5 with less puck control/more agility so barring one of them wanting the puck more, I think they would be awesome together
Vanek is soft, which does not bode well with datsyuk. He plays well with Z b/c he plays a PWF style

#2518935 Florida willing to trade first overall pick.

Posted by WingsallTheway on 02 May 2014 - 05:45 PM

This would probably be a good enough deal... and I wouldnt do it
