  1. Official 2018 NHL Amateur Entry Draft Discussion Thread

    I hope that Buffalo gets the 3rd pick, just for the McDavid thing a few years back. I don't know how they could look Eichel in the eye after that.

    The look of disappointment on Kenny's face.
  3. 2018 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    Neuvirth came in in relief in game 4, won game 5, and didn't look horrible until halfway through the 2nd, when the crap hit the fan for Philly. I don't think he was fully healthy, but look at the options that The Flyers had. Would have been better off having Hextall suit up. Probably would have increased their scoring too.
  4. No one's seems to remember that Dallas did a lot of the heavy lifting for us in 2008. They took out Anaheim in the 1st round in 6 games, then The Sharks in the 2nd round in 6 games. Both of those series we're brutal physical series. By the time we got to play Dallas, they were too beat up to give us a fight. If we would have had a series like we did with Anaheim in 2009, in the first 2 rounds in 2008, we probably wouldn't have beat Dallas to get to the finals. That's just my take on 2008 team being so dominant.
  5. Wings Recall Hicketts

    Should've brought up McIllrath. At least we'd have some entertainment value for the last 6 games. And yeah, I know that he can't fight worth a damn, but at least he will fight, and he's expendable if the league feels that punching Malkin in the face wasn't warranted.
  6. Bad Fans?

    I root for this team to play hard, and win, every night, just as I did through the whole Dead Wings Era. I just realize that this team doesn't have enough talent to win more than 1/3 of their remaining games at best. Right now, I just want to see the young guys play good, strong, fundamental hockey. Sure, they're going to make mistakes here and there, but do they keep repeating them, or do they learn from them, and move on? I'm okay with getting beaten by better teams. I'm not okay with watching ourselves beat us for the other team. I'd much rather see them play hard and win games, and then hope we do well with the bingo balls, than watch them give games away for a better shot at a top 3 pick. There is no honor in tanking, but there is in going out and giving 100%, and losing to a better team.
  7. 3/16 GDT | Detroit Red Wings @ Anaheim Ducks | 10 PM ET

    But being bad was good that year, as Brad Park knew how to keep the fans excitement level high, and called up Both Probert and Kocur, within a week or so of each other. After mid-December that season, fans were happy to lose the games as long as we won the fights. Ah, the good old days.
  8. 3/12 GDT - Red Wings at Sharks - 10:30 PM EST

    Sad. The Sharts played a terrible game, and we had to out terrible them. A couple of decent performances, but overall disappointing. Not for tanking at all, because that doesn't build character for the youngins. I'd rather watch them play hard every night and lose a tight, well played game. At least it seems a little more honorable than going full on tank.

    Pretty sure that that horse was turned into glue a few years ago. Maybe even more than a few. This was Babcock's MO for several years already. Thinking back a bit, this is what got us destroyed by New Jersey in 95. Bowman refused to dump and chase against their trap, to try to keep them even partially honest. Of course hooking and holding kept us from being able to retrieve pucks anyways.
  10. 3/12 GDT - Red Wings at Sharks - 10:30 PM EST

    This team is incapable of dumping the puck in when they get pinched to the boards. It's always a higher risk pass attempt towards the center of the ice. Total uninspired play by Z, and just as uninspiring of Nyquist to stop skating, and let his man get behind him. This whole team deserves a serious bag skate.

    Green cock blocked Holland, by not allowing a trade to Tarranna.
  12. 2/17 GDT - Red Wings @ Predators - 8:00 PM EST

    Between the fight highlights from 2003, and "The other Luke" getting his first, this might be the most exciting game I've seen in a little while.
  13. Zetterberg HOF Worthy?

    Zetterberg will get in purely on his manly ability to grow a full playoff beard overnight.
  14. Rumors Thread

    Looks like someone became available after getting called out on TV during last night's NBCSN matchup. That didn't last long.
  15. 1/22 GDT - Red Wings @ Devils - 7:00 PM EST

    Petr should get the next game, but, being a back-to-back, there's no doubt that Howard gets the nod. He had a great game, I hope that he gets Thursday so that he can stone The Black Hawks again.
