Discussion in 'Detroit Red Wings' started by Heaton, Jul 9, 2018.
Still confused why the offside challege is still a thing.
Halfway into Parise-Suter deals, here's the full story of...
just in case you want to go back to suter FA debacle 6 and half years ago..
It was a good read. As an addendum, I would like to get Ricelunds recollection of the events!
I cant help but admire the San Jose Shark organization. They've consistently been a contender since the lockout, bringing lots of excitement to fans. They make big moves to acquire star players, and also draft well to replace their older ones.
Have they really been a contender every year since the lockout? They only made it past the second round I think three times since, resulting in one Cup appearance (where they got crushed). If you include the reverse sweep, they are a team that's never been good enough to get the job done. I think they benefit being located where they are because they often see a lot of teams at the end of their California road trip.
sharks have the most road points since the lockout. most home points too but smaller difference to next best team or within top 5 etc.
Oh Jimmy Nill, you're bad.
Toronto is booing Jake Gardiner out.... to sign next summer at Detroit.
Guy makes mistakes, but when I looked to some of his long-term stats, he's really good. Always lowest GAA when he is on the ice. He is good at defending = preventing goals. And doesn't shy away from point-scoring.
Larry Murphy 2.0 is it ?
Leafs have no cap space to sign anyhow for an extension, if they keep all Nylander, Marner, Matthews, Kapanen. And they have to trade one for a defenceman, which could eat the same space as those forwards. They at least 5-6M extra space to extend Gardiner.
Worst thing the Leafs did was sign Nylander to that contract.
Yup...Now when you add Matthews/Marner new contracts there won't be much cap space left for Gardiner, and others who are looking for a pay raise.
Also signing Marleau was simply a dumb move as well, and he's got 1 year left that eats up $6.25 million of cap space.
The Leafs will soon be the Blackhawks minus the 3 Cups.
Years ago I saw a video clip of Murphy calling out the Leafs, and it's fan base (more or less having the 'last laugh' while a Red Wing)...If I find that clip I'll post it.
All three should have been signed this past offseason. Signing Tavares mucked everything up. As soon as that happened everyone else knew they'd have great seasons statistically and could ask for even more money if they waited. Good probably to have, but still.
I think he said it at the parade to be honest. But they even mentioned it on Leafs Lunch today when discussing Jake Gardiner. That they should learn from past mistakes...
He said it in the locker room after they beat the Flyers. I remember watching the clip a couple of years ago and it was the first time I was able to see the infamous quote come to life.
He may have also said it during the parade, but I don't recall.
I think the Habs are a playoff team. Price seems to have found his game. Also nice to see Tatar doing well.
I agree, despite it looking like Bergevin was out to ruin the team with questionable trades and draft picks. The Domi trade looks brilliant at this point. And where there is Price, there is hope.
Leafs board calling for Babcocks head lol
Ryan Spooner on waivers.
Check this out :
From Messier to waivers:

Eberle for Strome
Strome for Spooner
Spooner on waivers
Wtf is that Koskinen contract?
Dammit the Leafs got their D man. No more trade with us.
Just learned Brendan Smith has been playing some forward for NYR. Surprised, not surprised? Does Quinn Hughes follow suit? Joking, don't get your panties all in a wad Hughes-ettes.
larkin's contract looks like a steal these days. Matthews just got 11.6 AAV for 5 years.
Yeah hes a better player but hes not twice as good lol
and apparently Marner's camp thinks he's just as valuable. That's going to be a headache for the leafs.
Their camp wouldn't be wrong. Last two season it's been Marner driving the offense.
Modern players really should look at agreeing to a hometown discount. Do you want an extra few million... or would you rather have a better team and chance to contend?
Separate names with a comma.
