Seems to me like trying to spare your audience the NBC broadcast when CBC's is available supports their love for hockey. Of course, I don't expect that to be given any attention by someone who is either irrationally biased against the city or trolling to page clicks. Consider this me succumbing to such low brow tactics.

Red Wings fan here, just wanted to say I enjoyed the read. Thanks for that and good luck tomorrow.

 

BUT, just in case there are any *ahem* of the Mighty Deities of Lord Stanley's Hockey watching, it was a BLACKHAWKS fan that called the Hockey Gods a bag of dicks.

Stop making me feel better about being a Wings fan. It's incongruous with my fanship over the last 18months.

I don't see the players agreeing to such a big cut without some salary guarentees(multiple buyouts, etc.). Either way, we'd still not be in a position to compete, up against the new cap while still missing a top 4 D or two and a top six winger. I doubt anything would happen that would greatly enhance our standing in the West. Sorry to be the Debbie downer of posters, just seems like everyone always wants to apologize for Holland.

Another season of Bertuzzi on the top line makes me nauseous.

 @Josh Howard Kahn and St. James both said Kenny wouldn't send Weber an offer sheet.

I absolutely agree. Why would you try to trade assets for a player that is available for a contract offer? So that White, Quincy, and Smith can y to fill the void left by Raffi, Stuie, and Nick? So that Mr. I can sit on 16 million in Cap space? Because an offer sheet "isn't Kenny's style?" Bull. TickTock missed a golden opportunity. -AppState.

@garth who has he had centering him? Semin has had to deal with other score first wingers and subpar centers for practically his entire career . What's Franzen's excuse? He's next to the best, playmaking, center in the league. Course, maybe I'm just stupid. 8-|

@Reddy Depends on what you mean by "worth it." Slava Malamund doesn't think he'll sign for less than 6-6.5. In a market where Zach Parise gets 7.5 for 13 and Matt Carle gets 5.5 for 6? Eesh. There wont be any 2 year, 4 million per for a guy as good as Semin. He'd step in and probably be the #1 scorer on the team, unless you think he'd be behind Franzen... I would expect Semin to pot 30-35 goals next to Dats,especially in his first year on the team.

4 years, 25 million and I wouldn't blink. Though, I'd rather 3 years, 18-19 million.

2 years, 4 months ago on Wings Should Offer Weber A Contract Like Noone's Ever Seen: $12M+ | July

I've been pushing this idea over at WIIM since JJ mentioned it a day or two ago.

 

Offer him 11 or 12 million, and start working on a long term extension immediately.

 

Trade Emmerton, Miller, and either Sak or rights to Abby for 2-5 round picks to recoup the loss of 1st round picks, call up Tatar to round out the roster.

 

I think the remainder of the money would have to go to either Doan/Semin or resigning Q, whichever Kenny feels is most prudent. All while making sure we cap a cushion in case of injuries.

Nice, Vals been quiet lately. Here's hoping for a "Return of the King" poster for Dats' return.

What are w going to do with Conks? Simple.

We load him into a rocket ship, fire him into the Sun, and hope he doesn't manage to put that fire out.

In before 12 stupid ass fans come in, defend Fredi, claim Heyward is overrated, and staunchly state that Constanza should still be playing. I don't know who makes my head hurt more, Fredi Gonzalez our idiot-in-chief or the majority of our fans who are stat hating morons
