    Red Wings Hirose - Veleno - Zadina Loggins - MacLeod - Kuffner Smith - Pearson - Lukosevicius Casey - Soderblom - Yetman Regula - Seider Berglund - Lindstrom D'astous - McCrea Romeo Fulcher Maple Leafs Korshkov - Der-Arguchintsev - Conrad Robertson - Elynuik - Brazeau Stotts - Abramov - Alistrov Nelson - Bradley - Estephan Kivihalme - Hollowell Rubins - Lindgren Kral - Larochelle Scott Zhukov I'm sure of two things... 1. Over half of that Leafs roster is a bunch of made up names. 2. Wings are going to destroy the Leafs tonight. I don't care that it's a Prospects Tournament. F*** the Leafs!

    Yup, everyone here has a reputation and knows each other well. That's what I love about this board and why I've never migrated off. I think the board felt a lot more like HF boards back in the Wings heyday. Since the team declined, and therefore the number of fans, this board has only increased in the dysfunctional family feeling. Those who remain are the true hardcores. When the team gets good again bandwagon fans will come back, and this group will be able to say we were here through the bad times... Keep it real you lovable f***s

    Here are the more or less interesting takes form the video: - he is proud wearing the Winged Wheel - he wants to compete with the "big guys", wants to be with the Red Wings - His role model is Scott Niedermayer, but he also loves the play of Roman Josi and Zack Werenski - he was raised in Erfurt and was then invited by Mannheim at the age of 14. His parents gave up their Jobs and moved with him. - the moment Yzerman took the stage his mom padded his knee and said "Now it's your turn." - he usually takes his time with things, doesn't feel any pressure. He is usually calm on the ice. - says it's an honor to represent Germany in the NHL - huge amount of talented prospects in Detroit - learned a lot during the prospect camp - he says he didn't saw a lot of the City of Detroit, but that you're near to Toronto and Chicago, that Lake Michigan isn't so far away and that there are areas around Detroit that are beautiful for sure. () - he still needs to get used being more in the center of media attention. - he is a little afraid, but also very excited coming to North America - is excited for the camps, they will decide what comes next after it - he doesn't rule out coming back to Mannheim, but it's only the third option after the Red Wings and the Griffins

    Well I watched the game and really only watched Seider. I'll have to watch it again later and focus on Zadina. Seider likes to shoot huh? He even had an apple seider taken away from due to a high stick on the tip in. I was shocked by how much he was shooting and how comfortable he looked running the point. His passing - while simple and not overly creative - is crisp and on the tape. Seems to make good, or at least safe, decisions with the puck. As well his choices on when to pinch seemed astute and overall play in the backend. I'd describe him exactly as scouts do: big smart mobile Dman with definite offensive potential on the horizon. He also looked liked a leader out there. He was calling plays and telling guys what to do on the faceoff. The whole Dach v. Seider thing was great too. The two immedately identified each other and battled. And Seider didnt back down at all. Very very happy with this selection right now.

    Don't make me a party to your incoherent "ideas" you f*cking martian. I agree with none of what you said here, and I suspect I don't agree with any other aspect of your existence either.

    Agreed. We're not icing an especially deep team this year, but I thought our marquee players were our best players and played well overall. Seider is a beauty. Outside of sure-thing top-three picks, I'm not sure you're gonna find a more complete 18-year-old defenseman. Size, skating, smarts, vision, poise, physicality, shooting, passing, playmaking, PP QBing, defensive mindfulness, mean streak -- he has it all. I love that he routinely holds the puck and makes plays under pressure when 99% of other 18-year-old defensemen will panic and throw the puck away because they don't wanna get crushed and/or they don't trust their puck skills in a say-your-prayers situation. I also love that he went HAM after Dach. Dach's a big boy and Seider laid him out flat on at least one occasion and I loved it. Veleno was quiet through the first 20 but came alive after that and ended up potting a couple of goals and leading a valiant comeback effort. Aside from maybe his skating, there isn't one aspect of his game that really stands out and makes everyone take notice -- but by the end of the game, he will have put up some points while doing some unheralded heavy lifting for his team. Also, dude is a handsome son of a b****. Zadina is a fraction of a second, a fraction of an inch, and a few pounds of muscle away from being a menace. It's kinda maddening. Could've blown the game wide open a few times but, like I said, he's just that itty-bitty teensy-weensy bit off. Needs a little more seasoning. Showed good chemistry with Veleno, made a perfect pass to set up one of Veleno's goals. So we might have a new dynamic duo to look forward to, first in Grand Rapids and eventually in Detroit. Thought Hirose looked good. Maybe my eyes were deceiving me, but he looked a bit quicker than I remember him being. He loves selling the shot and then going behind his back with a pass to the point on the PP. I can't recall a single Red Wing in recent memory trying that with any regularity. I've been kinda down on Givani Smith after the 2018-19 season he had, but I think he still has the potential to be a decent complementary grinder. His value will probably be tied directly to the caliber of his linematers. Case in point: Our first PP unit looked really good last night and I thought he was an important part of it. He won't be a big producer, but he can f*** your s*** up in the trenches. Gustav Lindstrom didn't impress me. Granted, he's not a flashy player. One of those "If you don't notice him, that means he's doing his job" defensemen. I liked Alec Regula's work on the point, but I didn't notice him much outside of that.

    yapp, his cross ice outlet pass to Kuffner for example was spot on and you probably can now understand why I said that you have this strange feeling that he just knows all the time, the puck in our d-zone always ended up on his stick and he knew what to do with it. It´s not flashy, it´s just good. Apart from the misjudgment of his time and space before the 1-1 he played a pretty mistake free game, not flashy, just good. After TC there shouldn´t be left any doubters of his #6 selection.

    He wanted to fight Dach as well and he used every opportunity to hit him, it looks like a proper love affair. Detroit left a good impression and I really want to see the next game. the last to periods give you a good taste of what to expect from #53.

    Huh? This is a very team friendly contract... You don't think Gardiner is worth $4.05M per?

    Totally agree about the goaltending. It's a bit of a truism to say that you need a hot goaltender to win the Cup, but it's hard to build around that. In fact, it's one of those rare situations where having the "best" goaltender hardly ensures you'll have "good" playoff goaltending. Consider that NONE of Luongo, Lundqvist, or Price have a Cup. Also totally agree that a group you can "build around" is a better situation than a few "elite" guys. But that's where I think positional strength matters. For instance, say you've got a couple workhorse centers but they're guys who don't score a ton relative to their peers. No problem if you collective group of wingers do score more than their peers. I don't think we need Super high scoring (80-100 point centers). Another 70 pts. guy will do as long as he's an assist machine. Because I think ALL of our top 6 wingers (and maybe one of our 3rd liners too) are going to score 20-30 goals. In this thought experiment lets use a Claude Giroux type. A top 9 of Larkin, Giroux, Veleno, Mantha, Bert, AA, Zadina, Ras/Berggren/Mastrosime/Svech, probably brutalizes opposition defenses without a single "elite" talent. Same with the defense. I think they need to collectively be able to put up points, without the need for any one player to be an offensive stud. A couple 30 point guys paired with a couple 40 point guys are a really good top four as long as they can defend competently.

    Ah. But so will the mods. And the Banhammers will drop. And the site will be gentrified. And the lovable misfits who kept this place alive will be forsaken. BUT, new accounts will rise from the ashes. I'm calling dibs on Zadinaisthefuture right now.

    The HYPE is REAL So the competition for the 7th D-spot is like Ericsson v Daley v Bowey v Kaski v Hicketts v Cholowski v Seider Does anyone have updates on injuries? Aren't Ericsson, Daley, and Greener all questionable to start or something? Hopefully this is the lineup by the end of the year: Dekeyser - Hronek Nemeth - Seider Cholowski - Bowey Kaski/Hicketts
