  1. The Secret

  2. Who? Drew and Mike are a Detroit icon. They had the #1 morning show on WRIF for the better part of 21 years. Is this a Wings Podcast? Nope. But they frequently had Red Wings as guests and they do love their Detroit sports.. all of them, which includes Red Wings
  3. Drew and Mike are back.... You heard me right DREW AND MIKE ARE BACK!!!!!! Drew and Mike have started their own podcast and the first episode is out. Spread the word... Let's welcome them back after being away for way to long Let's not forget the fella's at The Detroitcast. They are putting out a near Drew and Mike quality show for the last few years. Lead by Mike Wolters the former producer of the famous WRIF Drew and Mike show Mornings with the Drew and Mike show were worth waking up for... then the dreaded END came. Suddenly, suddenly and all of a sudden mornings were sad (screw dave and chuck). With the birth of The Detroit Cast the clouds started to thin and eventually the sun once again began to shine. Mornings were good again. But now... The Actual Drew and Mike are back together again PLUS The DetroitCast is better then ever... Donald Trump could quite possibly be President , Steve Yzerman could quite possibly be coming home to GM us back to the Glory Days... what else could happen??? Seriously Drew and Mike.. Check them out! TDC, check them out!!! Peace
  4. The team looked confused/lost and was mistake prone all season long. To me they looked ill prepared and/or his system was crap (probably a bit of both). This team imo is way better then Blashill was able yo get them to play. I think the team is younger with more talent then we have seen in a while yet the power play that was near league best last season sucked gigantic blue veiny beach balls. Face offs? what are those? Clearly NOT something that was practiced. How about CLEARING THE ZONE? Not practiced... What was practiced (and used a zillion times a game) was the lame zone entry of forwards skate puck to blue line then stop, pass back to defenseman and wait for him to carry it in.... SO STUPID!!! With all the speed this team has dump and chase for Pete's sake. Let those young speedy kids retrieve them pucks. This should have been the season Pav, Z and Kronwall down shifted to get them a break rather then expect they produce like they were 25 again. Worst of all we lost out on the chance for some really good coaches for this failed experiment. Can I start the bring back Dave Lewis thread now?
  5. Didn't read a word of this post but I will throw my 2 cents in on how to fix this mess... Run Blashill and his boring hockey system clear out of town and BEG Babs to come back! The Blashill experiment failed miserably. Don't believe me, watch the never ending team confusion and random line shuffling. Watch what has become a very boring and predictable team get owned over and over and over again. That stupid new zone entry move they use repeatedly.... forward quickly carries the puck to the opponents blue line then all forwards stop, pass the puck back to the defense, then wait for the defense-man to carry the puck in. Guddammet!!!! This team is young... turn the youth loose!!!! Forget the dumb pass back BS. If you can't carry the puck in then dump and chase. Get it deep and have that youth chase and hound. We don't have the high powered super stars of decades ago... we need an old school smash-mouth system. Aggressive fore-check, mucking and grinding in the corners, hard shots on net and young kids crashing and fighting for pucks in front. Teach them to step in and finish a check... no more patty cakes! No need for killing people but checks that make the other team think.
  6. Well... Abdelkader did look like a chump. At least drop the gloves and give him a big hug or throw him on the ground rather than look at the ref, shrug your shoulders and look like a giant vageen. That and someone throwing beer at the player? Dick move. That is the definition of classless and it's also a sin to waste a $15 USD beer like that. If you did that in Canada your buddy standing next to you jersey's you, give you a beat down, makes you walk home and drinks any roadie's you left in the car.
  7. Tyler Johnson is what one or both of Nyquist and Tatar should be. I would gladly trade Nyquist + Tatar + their european cloak of invisibility for Tyler Johnson
  8. With Datsyuk and Zetterberg nearing the end of their career I would have thought they should be moved down to the second line to: 1. Spend a bit less time on the ice and preserve them for the post season 2. Play against opponents 2nd string rather than 1st string 3. Start getting the next generation of leadership seasoned and playing in that capacity 4. Give the kids as much exposure to the Datsyuks and Zetterbergs while we still have them
  9. Put the kid in and let him get the experience!!! It's a no brainer. It's not like they get past the first round with this horse crap coaching anyway. Make lemons out of lemonade Blashill.
  10. Seems like one piece too much as originally stated but Nyquist + Sheahan + Marchenko + 1st for Stamkos + Droiun I would do
  11. Blashill should add another page from Babcock's book and start calling and talking to Todd Nelson a few times a week to pick his brain. It took him a good dozen games to figure out how to coach at the AHL level but he's now done that and is crushing it.... Blashill needs to do the same and maybe Oates + Nelson can help him figure out how to coach at the NHL level
  12. I really like the addition of Mike Green. He hasnt been as offensive (yet) as we'd hoped but it probably has to do with getting use to a new team and system but he is not the defensive liability I thought he'd be and man is he ever a great skater.... smooth! He has a great shot form the point that he needs to lean into more often. Once Blashill learns how to coach an NHL team and utilize the weapons he has Green will provide more but I am still really happy with him so far.
  13. I looked for the button to LOVE this post but couldn't find it. You my friend are 100000% correct. Much less ticky tacky crap for a while and dig into some old school blast at the net and muck the puck hockey.... Get ugly
  14. The best All-Star game format would be the one where they cancel the stupid game
  15. No I've been saying the same thing from the start. Not wanting him turfed yet but so far Jeff Blashill hockey sucks.
