    Wings Monthly Schedule Desktop Backgrounds

    Yeah, monkey wrench is Weird that in 2019 there doesn't seem to be any secondary option whatsoever...

    Wings Monthly Schedule Desktop Backgrounds

    Now that monkey wrench has "retired" from making any, does anyone know of an alternative site? I just scoured google, and so far cannot find anything for this month/year. I know at one point they were even made here on this site. But seemingly not anymore. Any help or guidance here would be much appreciated. It's was so nice and convenient always having the monthly schedule right there in my background. Not to mention looked awesome too.

    Has Blashill finally lost the team?

    Mind boggling that Blashill still has a job.

    Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    If I were AA, I'd be firing that garbage agent ASAP...smh Not only does he have no leverage. But that KHL team already took their offer off the table. And he's losing 10k each day he remains unsigned. Oh and if he makes the dumb decision to play in Switzerland, he'll make significantly less money.

    What Is Your #Hype Level Re: the Red Wings' 2017-18 Season?

    Despite our epic playoff streak ending, we're still one of the greatest franchises in sports history. Most sports fans can only wish and dream of just an ounce of our success over the years. Red Wings till the day I die. 10!!!

    Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    Now that Tatar is re-signed. Anyone know exactly how much cap space we have left? I'm just wondering if it's even a possibility to sign Thomas Vanek? From what I've heard, there isn't much cap space left. And we still have to sign AA. But I've heard three different cap space numbers. At this point it would be nice to know exactly how much money we're working with now. Last cap report I heard, is we have exactly 3 mill left after the Tatar signing.

    Non Stanley Cup Seasons that were the most shocking

    You are correct sir. Somehow managed to mix those years up. 94-95 should be on the list as well lol

    Non Stanley Cup Seasons that were the most shocking

    The most shocking was probably 95-96. Best record in NHL history, then got swept by the Devils.... But the one that hit me the hardest was definitely 2002-03. At that point in time we usually owned the Ducks in the playoffs (swept Teemu, Kariya & company a few years before that). And just when I was finally starting to get over the heartache, Sergei Fedorov not only leaves us, but of all teams, he signs with them...ouch.

    Smith vs. Daley

    It's called watching the games, and watching his give away's. Oh and watching him be a defensive liability.

    Targets for the Wings

    Anyone know if we have any interest in bringing back Thomas Vanek? I really haven't heard much about him since free agency began. Even tho he was basically just a powerplay specialist for us, I'd like to have him back at the right price. It's pretty clear that he liked and fit in well with our system. He was putting the puck in the net with much more regularity here, than he did for the Wild or the Panthers. If his asking price isn't too crazy, I'd really like to see him back in the Winged Wheel on a 1-2 year deal.

    Smith vs. Daley

    I'm shocked to see so much love for Smith. When he was here it seemed about 90% hated him (if not more). Quite frankly, I was (and still am) one of them. And almost everyone here liked the return we got when we traded him. Smith is an absolute liability defensively. Isn't good offensively. And is a give-away machine. I did like the energy he brought. But there was quite a few times where he couldn't even crack our lineup and was a healthy scratch. That could be partly attributed to us not using him properly. But even if that is the case, it most likely wouldn't have changed this time around. His current price tag is way too much for a guy who essentially brings nothing to the table other than some energy and intensity. Trevor Daley brings much more to the table on both ends of the ice, has leadership qualities, and has a cheaper price tag. Yes he's older than Smith. But being only 33, he's likely to maintain his level of play throughout his 3-year deal. For me this is a no-brainer. Daley > Smith

    Red Wings sign D Luke Witkowski to 2 year, 750k/yr contract. Will play as F.

    Yeah Helena St. James is reporting the same thing (take that for what it's worth lol). If this is true, I went from not really caring much, to actually being intrigued. He's a big boy. My guess is they'll use him as a big net front presence and a punching bag (or cross- checking bag) for opponents defense. Even if he doesn't score like a Holmstrom, if he can provide screens for other guys to score, and agitate/take opponents off their game, I'll be quite pleased with this dirt cheap, no risk deal.
  15. Yeah, I'm not a fan of the term. But I do like the money aspect of the deal.
