    Pre-Draft "State of the Rebuild" Assessment

    I was thinking the same thing when I saw Blueadams post the other day. I used to love the line threads/discussions, I was always yelled at for my combos. Good times, welcome back Blue.

    Like most I’ve slept on it an I’m still pissed off. But whatever f&@$ them. I’ll still be stoked af with a number of players but I’m all in for either Askarov or Drysdale at this point.

    yeah the waiting just adds to the immense angst I have for this lotto. My brain just echos not 4th, please not 4th. 1st or 2nd please. 3rd is fine. PLEASE NOT 4TH.

    2020 Draft Thread

    I used it horribly, some of my favorite movies are parodys. This whole draft seems to be a mockery, a spoof if you will of a normal NHL draft, yet still not funny to me. It wasnt all lost! It could very well be a parody, just not a funny one. Somewhat like my joke

    Yeah I dont get how more of a stink wouldnt have been made about it, the 8 teams playing "to be in the playoffs" should 100% not get a shot at the 1st pick, its ludicrous.

    Right?! I think it's ridiculous that they get a shot at the #1 pick, parody? not so much. I read before this that Detroit was guaranteed a top 4 top pick, is this still a thing or can we drop lower now? ...Also WTF is with the essay writing takeover, Ive never seen one so aggressive. Quite frankly I miss the Russian erotics

    2020 Offseason

    Aint that the truth! I do think we will ice a better looking club this year, but I think we will really notice a difference the year after and maybe even our first playoff push since 2016. I wont lie though when I first saw Pietrangelo on the list I was all in, Ive always loved that guy. Unfortunately just wrong time for us though he will be a difference maker for someone. I also think after Yzermans inaugural season his approach will be ambitious & aggressive-in a very calculated Yzerman fashion. In seeing interview after interview with the him, this guy knows his sh*t. He knows the players throughout the league and no doubt has players he thinks will fit if he could "kick the right tire" to get them here. He has a brain that always seems to be thinking hockey and currently its thinking MDGA-Make Detroit Great Again (lets make hats!)-I obviously buy into the Yzerplan and I dont think it'll take long until we see the results.

    2020 Offseason

    That's all fine and dandy BUT what are your thoughts on the 2020 Offseason?

    2020 Offseason

    I definitely think if Yzerman wanted to put pieces together to make a push then he could, but I think it would most certainly result in the same short term success that got us in trouble in the first place. As we all know Holland forced prolonged our rebuild by achieving the "streak" with overpaid FA's that didnt work out and overpaying current roster players, whereas in rebuild mode these some of these guys dont get the contracts they did. It seems as Yzerman has set his focus on making this team a giant again and adding players like Hall, that could indeed help the next few seasons and perhaps even give us the fuel for another push, isnt in the big picture. These short term contracts would not only affect our draft chances (that we perpetually drop as low as possible anyway) they also take ice time away from growing players in key development time. If our roster with new long term acquisitions (draft/trade/goalie FA) can make a push Id be stoked af. I do think we have one more jittery season to go through until we start to see a huge difference at the start of the 21/22 season though.

    Ladies equivalent to playoff beard

    I just love the fact this thread is 12 years, 11 months and 2 days strong. Its really quite impressive, almost as much as how I dont recognize most the people on here then. Though I didnt join until a year after this, boy a lots changed around these parts

    I agree Lefty. If they for some reason want a 24 team playoff format then those teams that sneak should consider that their lucky draw. In the end I still see the Wings being on the shortest end of the stick for some reason. I hope Im wrong

    Getting autographs in Colorado

    If I was to bet Id put it on Fyodor. He seems to be the more risque writer of the bunch
