Disappointed that the Wings gave Lidstrom 6.2 million. I love the guy, and he's given the club 2 quality decades of Hockey, but c'mon. I understand he's one of the best D-men in the league, but he doesn't know how much gas is in the tank, or how long he wants to play. He keeps saying that Detroit is a championship caliber club. If it is, then take the pay hit, and give the club some room to spend around on offense or netminding. I really wish we could have got him for 3 to 4 million and went out to spend some money to put toward either a goalie or a goal scorer. We need both.

Horton and a player for Wideman? Ouch. lol Athough, Horton was pretty overrated in NHL09 and 10.

Nappy is gone, good fucking riddance. Speaking of that, good fucking riddance to Niedermayer too. Ass.

We got some sucker to take Dennis Wideman.

Nathan Horton will fit in well with Boston.

I said when Pronger was moved that the Ducks dumped the wrong player. They should have traded Niedermayer because he was going to retire soon. Now there are two big holes in the blueline.

Yeah it's a lot of change, but remember it's Nick. The man is a cyborg who plays a ton of minutes. Most to perfection. No matter what anyone thinks he's still the most important player on that team.

Nappy is gone, good fucking riddance. Speaking of that, good fucking riddance to Niedermayer too. Ass.


This move surprised me a bit. Interesting. Keeping Marleau has to be almost certain now.

The Hawks will be raising they Cup banning against the Wings Oct. 9th. This should provide some serious motivation for our guys.

It's one of those we're screwed if we do, we're screwed if we don't.

glad to see nabakov gone. i dont think theyd make the announcement publicly unless they already were working on something with marleau. so hopefully he resigns for the long term.

Chicago acquired forwards Dustin Byfuglien, Ben Eager, Akim Aliu and Brent Sopel from from Chicago in exchange for forwards Marty Reasoner, Joey Crabb and Jeremy Morin and a first-round selection and second-round selection in the 2010 NHL Draft.


Wat...? :facepalm:

San Jose acquired defenseman Michael Vernace and forward Brett Sterling and a seventh-round selection in the 2010 NHL Draft from Atlanta in exchange for future considerations.


Wat... ?

Also I'm all for closing this thread out since the draft starts tomorrow. As long as wildcpac is going to stick with it for the season and keep the OP updated we should proceed there http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=265381
