  1. What happened to Calle Jarnkrok?

    I think the "rumor" was started by the Wings to help justify that terrible trade.
  2. Alfredsson and the #11

    I saw that earlier too, but it's not on the Red Wings website anymore......
  3. Brunner Contract Talks

    Anybody want to take bets that Brunner ends up with either Montreal or Chicago?
  4. At least it's not another Ken Holland re-tread.....
  5. Grade Holland

    I agree with the "bold" part. This year I think was just about maintaining a similar team as last season. Which is still a very good team BTW. With his non-overspending (except for E), he's put himself in a 2-hit position. He can either hit (1) the trade deadline hard this season, and has salary room to do it. Or wait to hit (2) next year's UFA market to really update the look of the Wings. (if rumors are true, they will be in a new division and will need to bulk up in size) This year's class of forwards for very light anyway. I'm glad he did what he did with Commodore & White, not so much Ericsson (though I thought it was out of necessity), Conklin is a safe back-up choice. Next season may be the one with the most changes.
  6. Grade Holland

    Just curious to see what everyone thinks about Ken Holland's off season so far. Consider too that he's got about $6 mill in cap-space left. Also note what you think he needs to do next.
  7. Chris Osgood announces retirement

    Speaking of health issues....Osgood reminds me of Herpes, you just can't get rid of them. An just when you think your safe, it flares up again. WTF, he must have some pics of Holland in a balerina dress or something. I can't figure it out.
  8. Nicklas Lidstrom HHOF Waiting Period

  9. Wings sign D Ian White to 2-year, $5.75m contract

    Well said. You gotta love a guy that's 5'10" and fights....that's heart and character.
  10. Does NBC have Pierre anymore?

    I'm sure he's busy rubbing Cindy Crosby's temples and easing his head out of the concussion he suffered. Bettman needs his field-man to take care of Crosby instead of useless banter. Once Crosby come's back, we'll see Pierre "LeDouche" on screen and monitoring the situation from close "between the benches" again.
  11. Chicago fans last night

    Let's not get into a pee-ing match with BlackHawks fans. They've proven that they're a bunch of classless punks on multiple occasions. Hawks fans remind me alot of Av's fans when they won their 1st Cup. None of them really knew what was happening on the ice, they knew the players that the media told them to know and only cheered when that player scored. B/C that's all they knew, other than that it was all marketing buzz-words. "going Cup Crazy" "Win that Stanley Thing" "Where's Jordan" "do we have a Capone on the team" you know all the typical Chicago Stuff. Besides it's just a fun Original-6 rivalry we get to have again. Some old-time hate-on-hate hockey. I'm tired of having "rivalries" Columbus, Nashville, Colorado (aka Quebec), + all the other expansion teams.
  12. Great Players with Forgetful Stints

    Let's not forget the greatest all-time flub.... Uwe Krupp - Red Wings, Jamaican Sled-Dog team, etc....
  13. Salei Comments on History With Modano and New Season

    Excellent point (highlighted), I'm sure if Salei creams a guy for a hit on Modano, it would ease any rifts at this point. I'm sure both came here to win a Cup, if that happens then that will not be an issue. Good call.
  14. New numbers for a couple of Wings

    Hopefully he doesn't play like a #2!
