Van Damme. Think Stevie Y drugs the players before offering a contract? They should all be piss tested for their own benefit.


I think Stevie Y should have been tested after signing Dan Girardi to that contract.

It's really odd to me how the three clubs who reportedly adhere pretty strictly to analytics (Chicago, Detroit, Tampa Bay) have some pretty bad contracts on their books...Chicago especially.


Lol wut. There is absolutely no indication that Detroit is doing anything resembling adhering to advanced stats. For fucks sake Ken Holland doesn't even know what a goddam aging curve is.


Yeah, the Girardi contract isn't great. But it's also only two years(hello Kris Russel). Yzerman has his mistakes.

I dunno, both the Hawks and Bolts reportedly based their models on Detroit's and as I understood it the Wings use analytics.

Supposedly they have some analytics guys but absolutely nothing they've done is any indication that they value their input, or if they do then the input they're getting is terrible.

I don't really know what model of Detroit's they've based theirs on.


At the very basic level, advanced stats say get younger if you're old. Guys decline in their late 20's. Generate offense by getting out of your zone(aka improve your D). Detroit didn't do any of those things(wooo Trevor Daley for 3 years at 33 years old while not dealing any of the bad vet contracts with picks).

You may be right. I'm not sure how much Tyler Wright listens to the numbers guys.

Honestly, I think Kenny was under too much pressure (putting a winner in the new rink, keeping the playoff streak alive, proving they could still get it done without Babs) and lost his damned mind. I think if it wasn't for that we wouldn't have seen him mishandle things so badly.

Maybe Kenny would benefit by making himself President and having a younger guy handle the day to day, like Sather and Burke.

He'd have to kick Jimmy D out first, right?

I suppose then a retirement might happen, who knows.

Oh and I was wrong, Jimmy is a "Senior VP," Illitch's kid is the P.

Since when did Shawn Horcoff start working for the Wings!?

Also, ugh...I scrolled past and saw Maltby's ugly mug. God I hated that guy.
