  1. I think this isn't the draft where we make things happen. Next year will be a stronger draft where we should be trading away our better asset like Tatar/nyquist. Seemed like there wasn't much of a market for wingers so better to sell later.
  2. We had to get rid of vanek at any price - losing him helps us tank and get better draft picks. Im happy overall.
  3. AA

    I can totally see AA getting sent to GR for a "conditioning stint" and then somebody else will get injured in the meantime.
  4. Trochek always scores against us
  5. Its clear Blashill isn't the answer at HC. His system is basically a crappy version of babcocks but he is getting less out of each guy.
  6. I'd love another look at Sproul. I remember him looking great that one game a couple years back against the Blues. Big guy that skates and hits like a truck. Huge slapper too.
  7. Wait is it 2013?
  8. A couple years ago I would be up in arms over holland not trading for a dman - but at this point i don't even care. Trouba makes so much sense as did many dmen in the past. Its the same old story. He has shown zero interest in making this team a viable contender and only wants to limp into the playoffs. I have never been less excited or proud as a wings fan and this offseason has solidified that.
  9. Holy overpayment... Shoulda been cheaper with the ducks unlikely to resign him for big money.
  10. I'm actually happy for them. I live in Toronto currently and it would be nice to see this place rejuvenated a bit when it comes to hockey so I don't have to listen to all this talk about the Jays and Raptors. Leafs have a great group of young forwards: Matthews, Marner, Nylander, Kapanen, Kadri, JVR But the D needs some work though: Reilly, Gardner, Marincin, Corrado IF they got Stamkos in addition to this group they should be a perennial playoff team in the next 2-3 years with the addition of some UFA help on D.
  11. I think the bigger issue is the piss poor attitude our guys are displaying. I don't remember players coming out in the media like this complaining. Be a professional and discuss these things with the coach and GM rather than going through the media. Grow up. This isn't how the red wings do things.
  12. Okay - so after reading some more THIS ugly logo will be the one on top of the arena and not the red wings logo - that is disgusting - I'm sorry.
  13. Not the CLASSIEST name we could have chosen. If it had to be a corporate sponsor then I guess it makes sense to do this one. I hope that after a couple years they decide to take the high road and re-name it.
  14. We need a serious shake-up next season. We need Larkin to be playing top 6 C and we will need one top 6 UFA C at minimum. We need lines with identity and I think having a physical skill 3rd line like this playoffs makes sense. We need skill guys playing with skill guys from now on. FWD: - One of Tatar/Nyquist should be traded to move up in the draft or acquire more pics to get our future D sorted. Pulkkinen should probably be shipped off too at the draft. - UFA C could be Stamkos/Backes/Staal (hinges on trading Datsyuk's contract away) Zetterberg - Larkin - Mantha Tatar/Nyquist - UFA C - Athanasiou Jurco - Sheahan - Abdelkader Nosek - Glendening - Bertuzzi/Callahan DEF: - Sign one of Yandle/Goligoski/Hamhuis - Trade Ericsson UFA D - Green Kronwall - Dekeyser Smith - Marchenko XO/Sproul

    Tough loss. Refs didn't have us like last game and we got sloppy on the pk a couple times. Our fwds didn't play well positionally on the pk and it burned us. We played very well in the second half of the game and were unlucky to not have taken the lead. ONE thing is for certain - if you move Bishop side to side (like Tampa did to us actually) he is very beatable. We need to do more of this next game.
