  1. Our draft position

    I kind of feel sick to my stomach now. I didn't know it was that high of a chance to move back. Only 8.4% of staying at 5 scares the crap out of me
  2. Our draft position

    What are the chances.... We move back in the draft out of the top 5?
  3. I think I'd like to get Hughes if we pick outside of the top 5. Pure homer on that I guess. Should be fun watching him and Wolverines tonight!
  4. It's inevitable (unfortunately)

    I don't really know.. The only thing I really want to see is NSH vs WPG. Gonna be a bloodbath if that happens. Cup wise, maybe WPG or NSH vs WSH or TBL. I'd like to see NSH or WSH win it this year if a had too pick. NJD is my long shot. I honestly don't want to see TOR, VGK, PIT, COL, BOS win it.
  5. 2018 draft , who's your 2 picks in 1stR

    Thanks the names, gives me something to look up over the off-season.
  6. Sedin Twins Calling it a Career After Season

    Z the next great Sweden to retire. Z gonna need 2 more season to catch Daniel, I don't know about Henrik. I think he plays one more season, finishes just behind Daniel breaking into 1000, guessing around 1010 points. The Sedin's still have little more than 200 games played on Z, which is kind of crazy to think about. I wonder if Bäckström can catch or pass Alfredsson. He'll be around 1073 if he can avg 70 for the next 4 years. Which makes him 34-35 I think.
  7. 2018 draft , who's your 2 picks in 1stR

    Very early, but any hype around 2019 draft class? I'd expect us to finish bottom 10 for few more seasons, just wondering. ( hope to be wrong ) not to go off-topic but didn't want to make another draft post.
  8. Yeah, what a dumb kid for wanting to win, gain playoff experience, live in LA, learning from one of the best in Doughty.
  9. Holland and Blashill expected to return

    never mind I missed read.
  10. Holland and Blashill expected to return

    Yep.. It's just my point of view. As a Tiger and Red Wing fan.
  11. Holland and Blashill expected to return

    When it comes to if the Ilitch family cares about the Tigers more than the Wings it's hard to say. I've often in the pass felt the Mr.I tossed the keys to Holland and has put more attention into the Tigers. All while letting Holland run the Red Wings without a worry. I felt this pretty much happen after M.I put in real effort to get one of Suter or Parise. After this he just lost his steam, and honestly just got old. Which I don't really fault him for. About that time Mr.I was going all out with the Tigers, going after players like Prince Fielder who at the time was one of the best hitters in MLB. Along with some other huge signings over the years, all while letting Holland kick tiers. I think Mr.I just got too old too put the same effort into the Wings and Tigers. So he picked the Tigers. I think he still loved the Wings but he wanted that World Series title more. Tigers had two solid runs at it, but failed in the end. Oddly, the Ilitch faimly have let Al Avila (Tigers GM) more or less sell off vets and go full rebuild. Even trading JV for 3 prospects. I gotta wonder if Verlander is still a Tiger, if M.I is still alive. The Tigers right now are doing what most people around here want the Wings to do. Go full rebuild and tank it from day one. Trade everything even icon vets and let the kids play. Hard to say which plan will work in the end, being that MLB and NHL are too different beasts. I think in the end M.I proved he cared a great deal for the Wings. LCA has to be some kind of proof of that.
  12. Holland and Blashill expected to return

    Not sure how anyone could be surprised. I would be much more surprised if they didn't come back.
  13. Bad Fans?

    I am kind of the same way. But I can't stand losing to CHI, PIT and COL. Regardless if we are contenders or bottom of the basement. Anytime we lose to CHI mainly, I am not an easy person to be around for a few hours. And something about losing on a Sunday when we have a Noon to 3:00 pm games also get's under my skin for the day.
