Dude those are just words. You had a solid 8hrs of rest and now you're voting better. That's all there is to it.


#2682446 Who do you have as the top 5 Wings of all time..

Posted by Echolalia on 06 July 2016 - 04:44 PM

Miller #5? "..."Really? He should be at the top! DM Fan club unite!

Take off the Miller fan boy glasses being the best pker and shot blocker in the history of the NHL only gets you into the top 5.

Posted by Echolalia on 02 July 2016 - 01:39 PM

#2681956 Steve Ott signs 1 year, $800k deal with Detroit

Posted by Echolalia on 02 July 2016 - 01:35 PM

beats me, Bond. After all the hype from trading Datsyuk's contract, I want off this ride.

No one is keeping you on it. I'm sure Toronto fans would love to have your shining personality join their forum.


#2680929 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Posted by Echolalia on 01 July 2016 - 09:41 AM

I'm actually happy Helm is back.  I'm not thrilled about the money, but it was necessary to keep him.  I can see that most of you didn't want him back, especially at that price, but the truth is, if we lose Helm we're going to be a slower team.  I think our options were to either sign Helm at 3.85 or sign a different player, who is slower or has similar production for $4 mil or more.  Different doesn't mean better.  Sometimes better means trying something different.  Carl Hagelin, who I feel is a similar player to Helm, had numbers similar to Helm before he was put on a good line with Bonino and Kessel.  Helm could very well be the same way.  Put him on a line with AA or Larkin and Tatar or trade for Nash or sign Vanek and that line could produce big numbers.

I think an AA Larkin Helm line could be a lot of fun to watch and should be pretty balanced as well

I guess I'm the only one who's glad he's staying. Price is a bit too high but realistically he was always going to get paid somewhere in the 3-4M range, so I don't think it's even so much of an overpayment, certainly not enough to get bent out of shape about and think it's the end of the world, especially cuz the Wings have 100 billion dollars to work with atm now that Stamkos isn't in the plans.


#2680512 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Posted by Echolalia on 30 June 2016 - 08:36 AM

Weber is a thug. I'd rather have Subban.


#2680366 Stamkos to... Tampa

Posted by Echolalia on 29 June 2016 - 06:20 PM

holland needs a new job. hes been a joke since he couldnt close the suter parise deal.

 

what has he done since our last cup?

 

stephan weiss...bust

mike modano..bust

daniel alfredsson...bust

david legwand..bust

erik cole...bust

zidlicky...bust

bard richards...bust

keeping cleary...bust

covo...bust

sammy 2nd time...bust

 

yes lets go get a washed up eric staal now pay him 6 mil

 

You really seemed to like most of these signings when they happened.  Most of us did.  Hindsight makes things much clearer though, especially in the case of freak injuries like in the case of Weiss, Modano, and Cole.  Frankly, the Wings have had some awful luck with bringing guys in.  




#2679976 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

Posted by Echolalia on 28 June 2016 - 07:35 PM

it's also a valid point for him wanting to play the last years of his career in his homeland, in front of his people and close to his loved ones.

As long as his loved ones are within a 90 minute radius

I've never been to Buffalo and I'm super biased but Detroit has to be one of the most underrated cities right now.
