    10/23 GDT : Penguins 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

    This s*** is boooooring
  2. whelp, that wasn't a very enjoyable game to watch.
  3. This team needs some god damn offense. Then that awful call wouldn't even matter.

    10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

    He's only played 26 games as a Red Wing.....26. Again, he's only played 26 games as a Red Wing. I can't imagine why anyone has written him off after only ~32% of a single season. It's just utter nonsense.

    10/9 GDT : Bruins 1 at Red Wings 2.

    Yeah, this seems like a worth while argument.

    9/23 Exhibition GDT : Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 2 (OT)

    I was following the play by play for the game and noticed a lot of these: 13:43 Detroit Giveaway by Jakub Kindl in defensive zone

    Selanne would still play if Boudreau wasn't Ducks coach

    Regular season success is still success. Quenneville has more cups that Babs, guess he's a better coach. Enough said.

    Hurr durr he's fat, what a piece of s***. The dude's teams were always president's trophy contenders.

    Hockey 101: Zone exits for wingers

    While I agree that this is a problem, I think the bigger problem is in the offensive zone. The team is horrible at puck possession. The most success seemed to come from the rush. The forwards don't cycle particularly well, and the forcheck is almost non existent. Detroit is 25th for CF%, and 9th for FF%. The team just constantly shoots the puck into defensemen. There's no offensive movement to open things up. Everyone just kind of stands around, loses the puck, and it's time for some more mediocre defense.

    Who is YOUR most under-appreciated/unsung Red Wing?

    He was also able to change his playing style from a standup goalie to a hybrid. I think that often gets overlooked.

    Babcock Interview on 105.1 this morning

    So you're saying the preferred method would be to let him walk? I agree, that would be more amicable. However, you made it sound like it would be some fool-hardy endeavor for Holland to sign Babcock for multiple years, which is not the case. Is it less desirable to fire him? Sure, but no worries if you had to.

    Babcock Interview on 105.1 this morning

    Why? You can fire a coach at any time with little repercussion. It's not like his salary goes against the cap.

    Babcock Interview on 105.1 this morning

    If what he says about Pavs, Z, a JHo is true then this team will make some noise. Z, and D alone can carry this team into the playoffs. The pressure being taken off Franzen will hopefully help him out. I don't know, that interview pumped me up for next season.

    Red Wings Target Mike Green

    Is this done yet? Can we please move on? I kind of don't even like this website anymore because of this, Hossa, and Suter circle jerks that constantly get brought up in not some, but ALL of the posts on this site.

    What's best for Mantha?

    I believe Datsyuk was ranked 12th among Detroit's prospects. No one really saw his potential. The fact that he made the team in 2002 was pretty crazy. I think Hull really helped his development and saw his true potential.

    Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

    I don't think that's the case at all. I believe what we are witnessing is just how much of an impact player a prime Lidstrom was. We all knew he was good, amazing, one of the best ever. But, he seems to be what made the '00s Red Wings teams into contenders. Every D man that was his partner had career years. I daresay that, even with all the accolades, he may well have been underrated.

    2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

    That makes more sense and sort of falls in line with what everyone thought.

    2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

    So Buffalo requires nearly 2 full lines of prospects for an underachieving dman?

    Any REAL mod would never make a crazy announcement like that!

    Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

    I don't know if that's entirely true. Rafalski was undrafted and played in Europe for a while. There was talk that his success in NJ was a product of their system, and being able to play with Niedermayer. He did, however, have more than 1 offensively productive season in NJ.

    Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

    Am I taking crazy pills? Does no one remember how terrible he was the last 1 and half seasons he was here? The dude mailed it in and was one of the worst defenders on the Wings roster. Why does everyone want him back?

    Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

    Well this is interesting. Apparently Campbell is not lovin' the Florida weather. Everyone has been saying a puck moving D-man is what this team needs. I'm pretty sure that albatross of a contract will be ok with all cap room next year.

    Doughty takes a shot at Sharks

    Hardly. More like "slow news day".
