    XO Recalled

    Perhaps they were showcasing Ouellet for a deadline deal? Lets face it there are lots of reasons why the Wings brass do things that they don't tell all of us

    Kronwall out 2-4 Weeks after Knee Scope

    Kronner being out does hurt but lets face it he hasn`t been good this year so far. If the scope and a rest gets him back to playing like he can then thats what is needed.

    Abby Signs 7-year, 29.75 mil Extension

    Helm is a player we all like but he is looking more replaceable all the time. IMO players like Glendening and Ferraro are a cheaper option.

    Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

    I think it`s a little early to judge at this point. I think this team looks lost between two systems Babcocks and Blashills. They need to quit thinking so much and just play!

    DRW Free Agents / Salary Thread

    I think Mule is the biggest question mark going ahead (besides Babs). The Wings have no idea what his status is at this point so even though his salary doesn't count against the cap they lost a valuable player that they can't go out and replace. I think Zidlicky and Cole are done with the Wings. I can see Weiss and Smith for Phaneaf happening. Goose has a lot to prove at the NHL level still IMO. I hope Kenny goes short term with him. I think the Wings need to address a need for more scoring. Z isn't getting it done anymore, Tatar and Goose run hot and cold, and Pav can't shoulder all the weight. Id like to see a lot less money in the press box next year.

    Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

    The thing of concern is goaltending. Which Howard comes to the rink usually decides if the Wings win or not. Our D is not good enough to save games if Jimmy has a stinker.

    3/24 GDT : Coyotes 5 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

    My question is why the hell doesn`t he get pulled when it is clear that he is having a bad game. If Bab`s hooks him after goal three the Wings get 2 points this game. Coaching cost this game.

    3/24 GDT : Coyotes 5 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

    Howard is not helping lately IMO but this defense is awful. Kronwall screening the goalie for a goal every game, Smith is well...Smith, Ericsson shouldn`t get out of the press box. Time is running out to get healthy and start playing much better before playoffs. First round exit at this rate and might be in 4

    3/12 GDT : Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 1

    Blame him or not he turned the wrong way! That just shows how his head is not in the game at all.

    3/12 GDT : Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 1

    This team has played like crap since the trades. But what really scares me is how bad our top 2 D have been. Kronwall and Ericsson have been brutal lately. Ericsson turned the wrong way on that last goal! thats 11 year old stuff

    3/8 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 5

    If he can't get his team to play better then this maybe its time he moved on. Ericsson is awful and he still gets top minutes. Glendening is on the top line! I think Babcock is one of the best in the league but all good things must end.

    Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

    Im wondering if Kenny isn`t done and we could see some of these extra forward being moved for a D-Man. Jurco for Petry type deal

    Do we need to add grit?

    Do we need to add grit? Absolutely. But the guys on our team now have to start taking the body a lot more as well. Abby turned away from a ton of checks last night and I don't mean running around like an idiot Im taking about just finishing his checks! When was the last time one of our D laid anyone out? Way too easy to play against.

    2/16 GDT : Montreal Canadiens 2 at Red Wings 0

    Ericsson spent all game trying to give the game away. Kronwall decided to screen his own goalie on the shot that killed us. Nice top pairing.

    Are the Wings a Contender?

    We might win the first round. We are not tough enough to play against to go deep. And we don`t have a good enough top pairing D unit. All of this could be fixed before the deadline but I don`t think Holland has the stones to make those kinds of moves. We have found this out all year when we have played teams above us in the standings.

    2/14 GDT : Jets 5 at Red Wings 4 (SO)

    I agree. We have some big bodies as well but none of which play a hard nosed game. If the Wings do any kind of deal at all before the deadline I hope we can add some snarl.

    Steve Montador Found Dead At His Home

    Sad news. History of concussions and depression this is happening way to often to athletes. RIP

    2/14 GDT : Jets 5 at Red Wings 4 (SO)

    Agreed! I think they are a very underrated team. Their backend is huge except for Enstrom. The forwards attack on the forecheck like no other team. They will wear down a lot of better teams in the playoffs. Add how crazy the MTS center will be and they might go a long ways.

    2/14 GDT : Jets 5 at Red Wings 4 (SO)

    Paul Maurice has his team playing very good hockey. Not the most talented team in the NHL but they come to play every night and don`t give up. I love how they have 4 lines that forecheck like crazy. They will be a tough out for any team come the playoffs. The Wings need to be a lot tougher to play against.

    Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

    If Howard goes down the Wings will probably be screwed. Would you really think that Monster would be a better option then Mrazek to come in and play? Id say run with Mrazek as back up. If Jagr is available for cheap then its a no brainer. He might even resign for another year. How much contract would Toronto have to eat to take a chance on Phaneaf? He might be the cheapest D on the market. Could Babcock turn his career around?

    2/11 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Penguins 4

    Winnipeg will not be an easy game. They are big and play hard.

    So, Evander Kane...

    I cannot believe what Buffalo gave up for Kane! Sure he might become a great player someday but that remains to be seen. As far as Bogo is concerned he can be solid when hes healthy and that is starting to become an issue. The Jets were in a no win situation with Kane and to pull this off? well done Chevy
  24. Red Crazy

    What should we do with the Monster?

    why not just waive Monster? If he clears great if not who cares. Run Mrazek and Howard sharing the net until the playoffs.

    Report: Red WIngs interested in Franson

    Seems to be lots of reports like this floating around. I think I would rather the Wings deal with the Coyotes for Yandle or OEL. IMO Franson has still a lot to prove before he gets handed a big contract.
