    Reddit red wings thread

    I still use reddit a lot. I don't normally post there, but it's still a great social aggregation website. Like facebook or any social site, they went through the period of being lawless and edgy and everyone migrated there. But, like facebook and all sites, once the user base got huge they started to try find ways to monetize and become safer for advertisers. That meant reeling in all the things that made them popular to begin with. That started like 4 or 5 years ago now. I'd say they're on their death spiral, but if you only use r/hockey or r/detroitredwings it's great for new updates if you don't wanna comb twitter.

    Wings acquire Adam Erne from Tampa

    I so much want to checkout during the summer, but I think this site will die if any of us did that. And this is why we must over-analyze all summer and start flame wars, for the good of the forum...

    New Assistant Coach, Adam Nightingale?

    Yeah I posted this in another thread. I assumed bc we hired a new video coach and nightingale was still on staff that he had been promoted. Yzerman or Blashill must like him enough at least for now. I still think Yzerman may fire Blashill in the next two years and overhaul the coaching staff, and this is just a holding pattern.

    This one? Not really my style, but the flag on the back is kinda tight. I'd honestly prefer it with 50 stars, but yeah the shutdown of this shoe because of the flag is beyond moronic. Lets not even get started. No, like I said I don't think this was ever a game worn jersey. Just a one-off for the fans. I've always liked coloring the number personally, gives a jersey some subtle pop. You're right that would be pretty sweet actually. Some flags might be harder to do thou. Bummer, they probably only make certain models here. I've got a "shoe guy" who hooks me up at cost on other brands, so I don't buy New Balance anymore. But fun story, I called this guy right after the China Tariffs were announced to pick his brain on how they were gonna deal with the tariffs (all their shoes are made in China). He says "all of our business will be moved to Vietnam within the week". So do tariffs work? Eh probably not, big companies will just move to the next cheapest country. But I do think the sanctions are puttin' the hurt on China more than anyone realizes. Sorry I've gone way off track.

    Grade The Offseason 2019: Yzerman's Opening Moves

    I think you're losing sight on what the motivation of the trade was. For the Leafs, It was dumping cap. The price for doing that was giving away their first, not obtaining a throw in 6th. I'd much rather send that 1st to Carolina than Detroit in Dubas's shoes. The throw in pick is an after thought formality. Rivalry aside. You don't as a general rule wanna strengthen your divisional adversaries. Giving a 1st round pick to a divisional adversary in exchange for cap space. In fact I think it would have been much smarter for Dubas to send his 1st West, but maybe he didn't have a dance partner IDK.

    I read an article which said Seider wants to get acclimatised and work out and train with Red wings players, so my guess is that he starts training on monday. does anyone here have some sort of insider who knows where and with whom he´s training?

    Reddit red wings thread

    I stumbled on it recently, and one of the first threads I found on the Red Wings reddit was something along the lines of "Have you ever used letsgowings.com?" and I felt obligated to reply. It is good for up to the minute news and developments, i'll give it that. I'm not huge on reddit as a platform in general though, i'm just now looking into it a bit more.

    This has been a really, really long offseason and it isn't even over yet.

    I'd rather not. Reddit great for many things, but I come to LGW for the sense of community feeling reddit just doesn't have.

    New Assistant Coach, Adam Nightingale?

    He's been "Assistant Coach/Video" here for two years. Not sure what makes it "out of the box".

    I too am a big fan of New Balance - however the ones I'm currently wearing here at work are made in Indonesia Recently bought some Under Armour shoes (wife convinced me to try them)...I'm pleasantly surprised how good they are.

    so, 3 of the 4 coaches are Michigan Native. Doug Houda drafted by and played for Red Wings. The local ties run deep in this organization.

    Were all players required to wear a Jersey with the US flag? Or was their country used in their numbers?

    yes, but just in case you didn't understand, I was referring to Nike halting production of the Betsy Ross Flag shoe.

    Can't say I've ever heard of him, but surely an out of the box move! https://mihockey.com/2019/08/adam-nightingale-promoted-to-assistant-coach-with-red-wings/

    Ray Sheppard traded for $1

    What I am taking from this trade week is the number of mature age rookies that have already been picked up, if they have been taking before the national/pre-season/rookie drafts and a club has gone to the effort to trade for them then they be filling a required role and/or have serious potential.

    Grade The Offseason 2019: Yzerman's Opening Moves

    If, on the day Yzerman was hired, someone had predicted this off-season exactly, everyone would have said there was no chance of any of it and the person would have been labeled a troll. Yet 40% gave him an A or a B.

    Complaining about moves that we're made when we don't even know if we were in conversations is rose colored hindsight.

    Grade The Offseason 2019: Yzerman's Opening Moves

    Well I don’t know if it’s a gift if we’re offering the better deal ? ... they got a 6th from the canes , I’d we were willing to say you know what take our 3rd rounder you think Dubas wouldn’t do it? and at the moment there isn’t much of a rival going on and like you said drafts are a roll of the dice so even if we get the 27th pick let’s say it doesn’t mean we can land a top guy so I think they’d have made the deal with us Yes I agree it takes years before we can see what happens with any teams picks but for me personally I like to swing for the fences , sure someone like grewe will probably be an Nhler and we’ll probably like him a lot but I like to go for the first line guys and go for it I like seider as well I’d just have preferred to have moved AA in a deal to get him and have podkolzin in a dream scenario , I think he’ll be a player for us but at 6 we need him to be really good not just a decent #3-4 who can put up 25 pts cause in my eyes I can already see podkolzin and Petersson tearing up the league together on the same line but anyways as you said it’s all a waiting game now
