    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    What a day to be a Wings fan. Welcome home Stevie Y, lets turn this ship around.
  2. In the generation to be offended by everything PETA has requested Wings fans be fined and banned for throwing Octopus on the ice. http://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/1274623?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
  3. The hype should be a .gif of a dumpster with 100 gallons of gasoline getting dumped in it.
  4. A good trade. The 2nd would've been good enough for Jensen. We also get a young guy with some potential for a guy we clearly weren't resigning or it would've been done by now.

    Ericsson's lateral movement is so bad. If he can play in a straight line he's decent. He's a pretty decent passer but he's just not fast enough anywhere on the ice.

    Exactly. We are bad, we aren't going anywhere. It's time to let Hronek and Cholo play as much as possible. Problem is we are in salary cap purgatory and there is no where for some of these guys to go. DK, Ericsson and Jensen are just taking up space but no one is taking on E or DK's contract.
  7. I was at the game yesterday. There is times in the first 2 periods where I'm watching and can't for the life of me figure out why we are so bad. Then I looked at the scoreboard after 2 and realized we had 30 shots on net, carried the play and had 2 goals. They had us right where they wanted us because we can't put a team away and we cant hold a lead on the road and poooof. We end up losing. Blashill is terrible. During the TV time out he doesn't say a thing. Kronwall, Nielsen, Larkin do all the talking. That says a lot to me. Kronwall, Green and Hronek were our best 3 d. The other 3 are just filling space. Ericcson, DK and Jensen are 3rd pairing d men. Top 6 on forward possessed the puck well but too much passing. It was painful. AA is basically playing 4th line minutes and going forward it does nothing for his development. Last thought : The western conference is a dumpster fire. The Canucks are bad and they are in a playoff spot.
  8. Green is back. We will play better. If you don't believe me check our record without him.

    This is kind of off topic but I came across this today. Check the date. It was ignorant at the time to suggest and now it's just sad and comical.
  10. Insert dumpster fire .gif <<< here >>>
  11. Haha. Lazy? Doubt that Sucks? He does
  12. I will ask you to refer again to our lineup without Green in the lineup. Eats minutes so some of these other chumps don't play as much, plays the PP, Plays against top players and he can actually move the puck out of our end. I know Green wouldn't be considered a true #1 anymore but he is the closest we have to one. As for Blashill. Just listen to his post game pressers. He says the same thing every bloody time. " We can't dwell on that game, we just have to get better".............YOU AREN'T GETTING BETTER JEFF.
  13. I don't think he will be one of them. He could've went somewhere else in free agency in the off season if he wanted to but decided to re sign in Detroit. I don't know what other offers were out there but I would assume they were comparable to what he got from other teams better than the Wings. Probably went for a special back alley rub down. Rub and Tizzug. ( Trailer park boys reference )

    Thanks. Unfortunately I won't be heading over to Vancouver for any games. Just the pool play in Victoria.

    I am going to see Canada vs Slovakia ( pre tourney ) and then Sweden vs Finland and USA vs Slovakia on boxing day. Can someone give me a quick run down of what Wings prospects I can expect to see in these games for these teams. Thanks
  16. I would love one our stats gurus to tell me what our record is with and without Green. I'm guessing we have barely won a game without him. He eats minutes, he plays special teams and he MOVE THE DAMN PUCK. I did my own research quickly. We are 13-8-2 with Green in the lineup and 1-8-3 without. That is a pretty telling stat.
  17. 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..................
  20. When do we start the #whenwillFransNielsenscore twitter account?
  21. My Wings fandom started with a loss to the Leafs in the playoffs on a Borchefsky goal. It could only go up from there.
  22. 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.
