    11/18 GDT : Red Wings @ Capitals

    Vanek buries that Nyquist handcuffer with ease. Missing his right hand shot hurts. Glendening is not enough.

    Need offense? Take Smith out. Good strategy.

    Sheahan is on pace to go -50.

    Darren Helm (shoulder) out at least 6 weeks

    Helm hs good speed. He will be missed.

    Wow. That makes me feel worse about our future. But I trust your judgement. sounds like you have first hand experience watching the farm system.

    Your argument is sound. I agree 100% from a cap management perspective. But would you rather have him in our line up from a personal perspective?

    He seems to be helping the Griffs A LOT. If it were average performance down there, I'd give it zero thought. but it's exceptional stats in both ends. I'm more from the school of rewarding performance.

    I see what you are saying, but I'm of the opinion that our defense is NOT performing well. Just a different view is all.

    Why hasn't Russo gotten a look? He's excelled in the AHL for a long enough period now, no?

    Detroit goal scoring

    Hamilton would be a great fit on this team. DeKeyser is a 2nd pairing guy playing 1st pairing minutes. Gotta pry OEL out of Phoenix and Hamilton out of Calgary. OEL-Hamilton Dekeyser-Green Smith-Sproul That aint too bad.

    Helm's other suitors

    Ha ha ha ha. You even called it in your first post. Self fulfilling prophecy!

    I honestly believe the time has come to part ways with a lot of players and start a rebuild. The Red Wings arent going to be competitive with the roster they have now and with what they are paying the players. Keep:: Larkin, Athanasiou, Mantha, Bertuzzi, Callahan, Frk, Svechnikov, Jurco, Helm, Abdelkader, Glendening, Zetterberg, Sproul, Russo, Smith, Marchenko, Ouellet, Lashoff, Hicketts Trade: Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan, Ericsson, DeKeyser, Green, Howard LTIR: Kronwall, Franzen Drop: Miller, Ott We can't get better without trading/dropping players that are holding us back. Vanek-Larkin-Mantha Frk-Athanasiou-Jurco Zetterberg-Svechnikov-Helm Callahan-Glendening-Abdelkader Bertuzzi/Street Sproul-Smith Russo-Ouellet Marchenko-Hicketts Lashoff Mrazek Coreau Roll with that for a few years while we pick up some high draft picks. What's the difference? 5 playoff games. That's it. Time to rebuild.

    Vanek going down hurt bad. what's the deal with that?

    This team is a MESS. That first line doesnt make top 6 on half the teams in the league.

    Conflict in the Crease

    All I know is that Howard'd 5 mil per year hurts. Would LOVE him as our back up at 1.5 to 2 mil, but that current contract hurts us.

    Kronwall and Zetterberg contracts are a HUGE problem. if these 2 dont go on LTIR for good soon, the Red Wings will continue to deteriorate. You need all 18 skaters in today's NHL. You can't hide a guy playing on a bum leg or with a bum back.

    Sorry, guess I should speak of Mantha in the Mantha topic. I'm sorry.

    AA out 1-2 weeks with a Knee Sprain

    Outside of a few instances where he used his enormous reach along the blue line and a few where he bodies some guys out of the way, he looked a little uneasy in his surroundings. He definitely needs NHL seasoning.

    AA out 1-2 weeks with a Knee Sprain

    The sample size was pretty low.

    The MANtha watch.....

    The only reason might be his ability to be sent down without going on waivers.

    I agree with you. It's always easier when you aren't responsible for the outcome of a decision.

    AA out 1-2 weeks with a Knee Sprain

    So what's our optimal line-upif everyone is healthy?
