    What should we do with the Monster?

    Monster and XO were just called up. http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index.ssf/2015/02/red_wings_recall_xavier_ouelle_1.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+detroit-redwings+%28Detroit+Red+Wings+-+MLive.com%29 Looks like they had a spot for XO and he is being called up out of respect for his play and an invite extended to his father for the mentoring trip. man the wings are a class act.

    Brunner Contract Talks

    You must be new to LGW or, for that matter, any Red Wing forum.

    Brunner Contract Talks

    What makes you say this about Brunner? I would stake a large wager that Nyquist's career is far better than Brunner's. Tater, well that wager would be more of a 1:1 thing. Brunner plays little D and has no physical aspect to his game. Tater has a better game, with one notable question mark, the ability to score at the NHL level. IMO Brunner and Tatar are both 3rd line wingers. Nyquist is a top 6 and, in time, he has definite top line potential.
  4. Good for the Grifs as they look to repeat!

    Brunner Contract Talks

    Brunner appears to be a soft, no hit, no D, 20 goal scorer. Tater appears to be a more competitive replacement, with more speed and tenactiy. The question is, can he make the same offensive contribution as Brunner? I prefer Tatar and bringing up the other younger forwards. Good luck to Smiley.

    is anyone happy right now?

    is anyone happy right now? - In direct reply, I am very happy with these moves. Weiss > Fil Alfie > Brunner How is the team worse off with these swaps? The Wings are rebuilding and staying competitive. They lose Fil but picked up Weiss (who is an Eastern Conference vet). They lost Brunner and picked up a NHL HOF type player in Alfie (who is also an Eastern conference vet). Both are upgrades.

    Brunner Contract Talks

    Since the inception of the Cap, Holland has built a roster based on the money. It appears he will not over spend to make a 1-2 year run. Rather, his goal is to keep putting in parts to keep the team competitive, in the playoffs every year. I also believe this is Holland rebuilding. Signing the vets makes this team a top 5 club, while still builting for the next generation to take the reigns. top 5 - Bash away but I believe this club ended the season as a top 5 team. The D is set for years, and so is the net. Sure, losing a younger net finding forward like Brunner hurts, but I am confident has a plan to bring on young buck forwards. Fil and Brunner for Alfie and Weiss.... I have no complaints.

    He may also find out all the monmey has been spent. I think he will sign within 24 hours. I have no idea where but those that hit the market usually leave their last club.

    Brunner Contract Talks

    Sammy appears to have become a problem. I did not like the signing and him using a questionable injury to handcuff management (which impacts the roster) may not go over well come this fall. Brunner - I like the guy, but this is a numbers game. Tatar (hopefully) can look to fill that spot, at a lower cost. Nyquist and Smith will be signed.

    3/16 GDT : Red Wings 5 at Canucks 2

    With children in the house I have put a secuity lock on NHL network until Sunday. This is gonna be U-G-L-Y. http://scores.espn.go.com/nhl/boxscore?gameId=400442878 The minutes played last night by Pasha, 25. Howard, fle returning 63 minutes and playing again. Kronner - 26 minutes. The two D under 20, Smith at 17 and Lash at 14. (Of course White replaces Q). This team looked slow WITH rest. Tonight...I'll DVR the game and catch dinner.

    3/15 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Oilers 2 (OT)

    I enjoyed glancing through pages 10+. Eff youuu. F***, malarky, is Mule overweight? Howard has horrible rebound control, very creative Cleary with Pavel, and my favorite, this D passes like a Kia on the autobahn. I think we all agree Pasha's legend is growing. I enjoy every game he plays. Howard was, again, sensational. Fil - Mickey insists on it and I can't disagree, he hasn't missed a beat. A contract year will do that. Hank & Brunner - they are turning the puck over, not in the right spot, etc. They need SOMETHING! < now THAT'S coaching! Tootoo - Everyone can be bested, accept Anderson Silva. Mike Brown is your weakness. Skate on by. OK, now far be it for me to stop the complaint fest on this group. I still see them in the postseason, and I like the top 6 on D.... so I will bash them to shreds! Smith -This kid plays tryout hockey. Give the puck up, make the pass, support, etc. < He is the most frustrating guy on D for me to watch. He has the tools, but he either has severe myopia or an ego that requires two helmets. Kronner - you are getting beat, making bad passes and not hitting a SOUL. Rather than focus on improving your skill set, crush someone. The adreneline of fight or flight will take care of the rest, but good night Kindl has the best D hit of the season... KINDL! Kindl - Let them drop into the sack kid. Babcock can't literally whip you. The guy skates through the neutral zone with fear, not of a crushing hit, but of a mistake. Painful to watch. Last night the guy did the same drop pass again and again and again and again, literally that many times. Drop passes are one step above dump and chases on the PP. You see the pass, but you don't make it. MAKE IT .. or not, but efffing try. < It just struck me, maybe Kindl's nickname should not be Kuba it should be TULL. Why? Whenever he is ourt there he reminds of the lyrics, " skating away on the thin ice of a new day." Lash - you get beat on the outside like a returned runaway slave. I would tell you to get faster, but that is like telling the Show Pony to get tougher. Quincey - Kindl was given the ridiculous "almost made the roster at 18 label" which is bad enough because of the implied skill set but you sir, have a real issue. The Wings gave up a #1 pick for you. Forget the Wings history with #1's no one will recall McCollum, Wallin, Max, Yan etc. NO sir, you cost the Wings eerrrr, hhhmmmm, welllllll,, the next Sheahan, Smith or Kindl! Soft, out of position and no offense. Ericsson - Babcock said you were Pronger w/o the nasty stuff. You ain't. I recall all the hype about your slapshot. Sure, if this were golf hockey and you were Happy Gilmore we would put it on a tee and give you all the time you like to shoot. However, every team knows the forward can drop between the circles and still get to you before you shoot. Try the nasty stuff.

    Should Visors Be Mandatory In The NHL

    What player entering the League today removes the shield? I presented the stats. Quincey hurt himself, his teammates and the organization. So much for that deadline #2 for White ....POOF! (and he will have a shield when he returns, mark my words.)

    We are the Detroit Red Wings and we are making the playoffs

    Application submitted. They need the 4 spot, but taking the 8 spot and punking out the Hawks is OK by me.
