At some point in the near future. Fans just might have the opportunity to bet on National Lacrosse League games.  At least that is the word from Turner President David Levy at CES 2019.

 

Wings are banged up on offense with Hickey and Rambo hurting. Everyone knew Crowley’s time in New England was up and he would not suit up for the Black Wolves in the 2018-2019 season. After starting the season 0-3  did the Wings just pull a Flyers,  and hit the panic button?

The ghost of Wings past live on. Giving up a potential top three pick in 2019 for what a chance to win now? Does Crowley get the Wings into playoff contention? Maybe but a lot has to go right for that to happen.

While Crowley coming home to Philadelphia was going to happen sooner rather than later.  Did the Wings pay too much? Only time will tell.

Yeah you will never find us on the Kevin Crowley bandwagon.  Crowley tends to disappear far to often at crucial moments in our opinion.

Wings acquire Crowley from New England for first round picks in 2019 and 2022. Nice return for New England as it gives the Black Wolves a chance to restock the draft cup board.

This move could also mean the Wings expect Hickey to be on the shelf for awhile.

 

Seals activate Garrett Billings

Still no end to the holdouts

Can the Wings avoid another slow start?

Can Doug Buchan play a full sixty minutes in net?

“It doesn’t mean he’s done at all, he can still come back to us. We hold his rights. He can go and talk to other teams, but he can come back to us and we’re continuing the dialogue to, hopefully, come to a conclusion,” Lisk added.

Got to think at some point Lisk got to start making calls and see what other GM’s will offer in a trade.

Where is Kevin Crowley?

“Kevin is signed to the Black Wolves under our franchise tag. The franchise tag is something the league gives us to “franchise” a player, pay him the highest base salary in the league, and protects the team’s rights to him.  Each team only gets one franchise tag.

In the summer, we franchised Kevin. We offered him a multi-year contract with the hopes that he would commit to the Black Wolves and be part of the plan to win a championship here in New England.  Kevin has chosen not to report to the team. We are adamant that we want players that are committed to the Black Wolves.  We have offered Kevin a contract that we believe is fair and would be thrilled if Kevin wants to play for us.”

Got to think something has to give sooner rather than later, between Crowley and the Black Wolves.  Could Day be dumb enough to mortage the future for Crowley?
