Hi. I'm new here and was hoping to come across some info on Manny. I am 1 of his biggest fans from the first time I saw him play a game for the Wings. Everyone said he was too small, a carreer back-up. I never gave up hope for him nor will I yet. When he was with the Wings I got my first and only jersey which of course was a Manny jersey and went to see the team play their Red and White game during what ended up being Manny's last season with the Wings. I was fortunate enough to meet him, but refused to let him sign my jersey because I would never be able to wear it again. I couldn't decide which of 3 cards to have him sign and asked his opinion and he said how about all 3? HOW COOL!! I was so nervous I couldn't look him in the face! He was really nice and down to earth. When he realized we wanted his autograph, he was suprised that we wanted "just his" and not a famous player. I was like, forget the rest of the team!!
Anyway, what I was wondering is if anyone knows if there are any teams possibly interested in him right now? When can trades take place? While playing in Peoria, does he make his full contracted salary from the Blues?
I think what happened to him was that when the Blues picked up Mason, who was another first-string goalie, he felt that he was automatically going to be replaced and lost confidence. He had that "always going to be one of the best carreer back-up goaltenders" quote running through his head to make him freak out. Plus, how well was the offense helping when he was in net? They couldn't score for nothing most of the time! Just wanted to add my thoughts here.
Like OMG, did you cummzies in your pants?
