    10/26 Here Goes Nothing GDT - Jets @ Red Wings - 7:30 PM ET

    I actually think he was merely correlating Abby's salary to his level of suck. He's right about that too, but at this point its beating a dead horse as no one was happy with that contract when he got it. However Abby isn't why the wings suck, he is a good example as to how our GM and upper management put this team into the situation we are in but he's not why we suck. Our roster has many players- Larkin, AA, Nyquist, Nielsen, Mantha, Vanek & Bertuzzi that could put up a lot of points IF we had a superstar or heck even two. Our management dropped the ball very heavily on that and we are seeing the consequences of it, now we are left looking for a white horse in a field of donkeys.

    10/22 Homecoming GDT - Hurricanes @ Red Wings - 7:30 PM ET

    A couple years ago I would have 100% agreed with this. The writing has been on the wall for many more years then this though. With Dats, Lids and Z though they kept trucking. Then Lids left in 2012. This was an obvious blast to their team, but they kept trucking. They didn't do well after this and you could see things getting worse, then when Dats left a few years later it was lights out. Those two players were arguably two of the best players to play their positions-in their own ways of course, even Z and his beard couldn't withstand the wrath.... …...Its taking some getting used to but I actually enjoy watching them lose this year (the end of last year too). Its years of ignorance that got them here, and its obviously bound to happen at some point, but wow we're bad haha. I look forward to when the rebuild actually starts to show some progress but until then Ill sit and wait for Yzerman

    10/15 BUCKWILD GDT - Red Wings @ Canadiens - 7:30 PM ET

    I hope so, HYPE!!! This will mark my first full game I get to see, hopefully they have saved their best effort for tonight. Though I shouldn't say theres been no effort, Ive seen little bits of evry game except Bostons lashing, and other then that they've played hard. They've just missed HARD on converting on their chances. Someone or someone's has to step up as the white horse of this team to turn things around and get some confidence in that dressing room...HYPE!!!

    10/8 GDT - Red Wings @ Ducks - 10:00 PM EST

    Perhaps its the off season or the beer, but before the season started I remember thinking how this team could offensively surprise a lot of people...THEN the season started, yes it's early but 4 losses in a row speaks volumes and I don't see it getting much better. I also don't always appreciate how Blashill builds his lines, perhaps he could hire blueadams as his go to lines guy....

    10/8 GDT - Red Wings @ Ducks - 10:00 PM EST

    This is exactly what I was thinking heading into this game. This isn't even Anaheim, but unfortunately for us this IS the wings. Weve looked ok at times the past two games but our forward core really does suck at generating any sustained offence. Our young D core has some things to work out but they look good, Cholowski looks like a step in the right direction to me...Here's hoping they can pull together a win soon time!

    OT Lines Thread

    I also didn't see the game but I do know Id be pissed to see Glendening on the ice-insert anyone but Helm or Abby in his place. The fact it was a draw in the offensive zone is my problem. He's our best faceoff man but in the offensive zone during a 3 on 3 sudden death match you need your scorers and shakers out there. It shouldn't even be a discussion

    10/4 GDT - Red Wings vs Blue Jackets - 7:30 PM EST

    Im sure Babs would agree too....I would love to hear Blashills comment on why he went with Glendening, Im hoping someone asks during the presser

    10/4 GDT - Red Wings vs Blue Jackets - 7:30 PM EST

    Soooo exited we're finally starting a new season of Red Wings hockey. Not making the playoffs and all it makes it feel like forever between seasons …..Im looking forward to who steps up with Z gone, there is some untapped skill on this team that could surprise some folks around the league and I hope they prove themselves. Here's to an amazing year

    I only caught the last two minutes of the game did Jimmy play the whole game? ….and If the guys can score goals might as well score goals, take Torontos approach. Who needs defence

    2008 Zetterberg vs. 2018 Crosby

    I remember heading into the cup finals against the Pens in 2009 and seeing Dats and Crosby on everything with titles like "Datsyuk VS Crosby: Who's better?" and I remember thinking ITS ABOUT TIME the magicman got some recognition for what he did on the ice-all 200 feet of it. That year we also had Hossa and he talked about the differences between the two players fairly often, and he always said Dats was the more spectacular playermaker. NHL players for years always named Dats as the player who absolutely blew their minds but it wasn't until those two years of back to back finals where he got the media coverage to showcase to the people yet to see him. As for the question 08 Z vs 18 Crosby? All I will say is if I had to choose one of them for their entire career in a winged wheel, Id definitely choose Crosby

    Zetterberg & Fedorov VS Yzerman and Datsyuk

    Id go Yzerman and Dats...However as far as hypotheticals go, all four of them in their prime would be one hell of a sight to see...Put Feds on D and you have the best powerplay of all time

    Yzerman vs Fedorov. Which one was better?

    Didn't Fedorov act like a ***** for more money then left the wings for less money then he was asking? Dats left to go back home to be with his daughter, I don't feel Dats tarnished his legacy anywhere close to Feds....I was already missing Stevie and Sergie, now Im missing Dats too

    Yzerman vs Fedorov. Which one was better?

    I was 13 and remember being pi**ed right off. I hated Ottawa and I hated Yashin. Yzerman became my favorite player when I was 9 years old when my dad took me to maple leaf gardens to see the leafs vs wings. My eyes were glued to this dude making moves, moves I might add that Ive only seen in my dreams, well up to this point anyway. When the game was almost over my dad asked how I was liking the game, I said we need to stop by one of the stands on the way out and buy me an Yzerman jersey...Needless to say he was kinda pissed, it was almost blasphemy at that point for me less then an hour away from the leafs to route against them, but I did. AND its been glorious

    2018-2019 Opening Night Roster - Dedicated to BlueAdams!

    After an article I saw today from Kenny Holland it most def seems like Z isn't coming back. The biggest hit we take from this imo is we seem to have a ton of wingers in the wheel house ready to go but who centers them? I believe Nielsen is best suited for a 3rd pairing role SO is the AA playing center thing done because he'd help us create 3 lines that can help score on a regular basis if he could play center Mantha Larkin Zadina Rasmussen Athanasiou Vanek Bertuzzi Nielsen Nyquist Abby Helm Frk Glendening (faceoff champion)/Witowski (face punching champion) Danny D Green Ericsson Daley Kronwall Hronek Chowlowski

    Dylan Larkin Signs ($6.1M x 5 yrs)

    Jesus Christ I guess some things cant please some people. Ive read negative comments all over social media about this signing and it boggles my brain as there is legit ZERO reason not to be excited for 5 more years of Larkin, and he could have certainly commanded more money if he wanted to. Hes our guy, our future C according to most and someone we can definitely build a winning team around. ….AND he is most certainly NOT Nazim Kadri, I haven't seen DBoss act like a ***** even once.
