  1. Classic sign of an average team. Blowing multiple 2 goal leads.

    Mantha out 4 to 6 weeks with hand injury

    Maybe glass hands should stop fighting if he's going to get hurt everytime.

    I mean it's pretty hard to trade a guy with 0 goals in 20 + games with that contract. The math is simple...he's on pace for 0. 0 x 0 = 0, 0 +0 = 0..................
  4. When do we start the #whenwillFransNielsenscore twitter account?
  5. My Wings fandom started with a loss to the Leafs in the playoffs on a Borchefsky goal. It could only go up from there.
  6. Juggernaut. Thats all. Have a nice night.

    2018-19 Season Lines Thread

    100 % agree with this. We have had guys playing back there this year who have no business playing those kind of minutes. Injuries have forced us to play these guys but realistically the only one I think would've started in Detroit if we were injury free was Cholowski. We have some bad contracts, every team has some. Good news is that we should get some relief at the end of this year. Howard, Kronwall, Nyquist and Vanek will come off the books and will hopefully be replaced with more fiscal options.
  8. Wings win 7-5. AA with 6 goals and Kronwall with the other. One thing I can guarantee is multiple stupid looks on #fireblashills face .
  9. If we are trying to change the culture of this franchise lets get it done. I'm almost 40 and have never been naive enough to think these times would't come eventually. They are here. I do think this team has enough talent up front at least to be competitive every night. Our D is a mess. We are asking guys who clearly aren't ready to step up. A couple of these guys are at best AHL/3rd pair NHL caliber. We've got a GM ( who i've always supported ) who is clearly ready to put Detroit in the rear view and move on to Seattle or retirement. Let's think outside the god damn box for once and get Stevie Y in here. Let Holland stay with the team in some capacity until his next phase and lets go. Blashill needs to go, lets start fresh. He has no adaptability, no feel for this lineup and I'm tired of watching him with that stupid look on his face. At this point I'd be fine with Bylsma taking over this team but really we need to go outside the organization and find a coach. I'll handle the losing because for the last 25 years I've been spoiled with one of the best franchises in pro sports but as a fan it's hard to tolerate terrible organizational decisions.

    Kronwall is old and slow I get it but if we want any of these young forwards to have a chance we need some guys who can move the puck. Kronwall can move the puck. He's always been a good passer. I'm all for having young guys in the lineup and I've given into the fact it's happening right in front of my face but these young guys can't get better on their own. Green, Kronwall, Daley and even ( I cringe) Ericcson will help these guys along. Abby is in no mans land right now. He could be a very effective 3/4th line checker but he's paid like a guy who should score 20 goals. Won't happen. Jimmy isn't getting traded. He's in the last year of his deal and he will probably be gone at the end of the year unless a team has emergency goalie issues. Nyquist better start doing something quick or he's going to end up on the bench, he's been totally invisible and isn't really tradeable unless we Vegas wants to make a Tatar deal again There are a million Glendennings out there. Could care less either way about that guy.

    We are just a terrible passing team. It's horrible. Short passes. Nope. Long passes. Nope.

    If Ehn is going to stay up can we please move him up to the 3rd line and have Abdelkader down to the 4th with Helm and Glen. One of the keys to this season is going to be Kenny's ability to move Helm or Abdlekader at the deadline which probably will never happen because both have been here forever and Abby is from Michigan. Love these guys, love what they've done for the franchise but neither of them are very good.

    Daley was trash on that final goal. Glen stayed with his man and Daley gave him 15 feet of space. That was one of the worst played games i've seen in a long time. What a mess. No passing, No flow...by both teams

    I hope some of these kids play so good it's impossible to send them back down.
