  1. The part about the flyers at around 5:00
  2. And with no prospects on the blue line anymore I hope we get scored on a lot. Like 6-7 goals.
  3. This is not the year for breaking curses. I want all the misery we can get. Our reward will come in the afterlife. Draft-heaven.

    Perhaps I worded that badly(with english not being my first language) but if I recall correctly a lot of posters on this board put him down as a sixth-seventh d-man and/or wanted him gone last offseason. This being on one of the worst bluelines to ever grace the NHL Also considering last season being his first as a full time Red Wing I don’t get what you mean by ’always’. Anyway; I don’t dislike Jensen. I just think that Kenny should look for picks wherever he can find them. Being where Detroit are in the phase of the rebuild. And as I mentioned earlier, I don’t like signing mediocre/average players after them having a better career year. Thats how Ericsson happened I know that I’m new here and maybe I’m sticking my neck out a little bit saying that players suck. Not trying to stir s*** up. Peace.
  5. Not until his mission is completed. This years first round pick overall will be his crowning achievement.

    And I'm not completely against keeping him either I just fear(that if he stays) this will be the best year of his career.

    ”Suck” is a bit harsh maybe. But I believe we can find an equally serviceble d-man for next season for the same cost of this seasons Jensen. No need to pay more.

    I guess I could live with that. But I'm thinking he's gonna ask for more. And what if he starts to suck again and we have to carry a cap-hit of 2,9 m for 4 years? And doing so through a rebuild, if all the pieces falls the way we want them to cap-hit could be a hot commodity again for the red wings real soon. Also, I hope that we don't sign any extensions(other than one-year terms) for any player over 26 before Stevie takes over.
  10. Looked over the february schedule and - outside of the OTT game coming up - it looks like we could be on our way to a eleven game losing streak. Which is good, I guess?

    I think its good to be wary of bottom pairing defensemen(and bottom six forwards) having a good/great contract year. Let someone else sign them to contracts they will never live up to. Before this season it looked like Jensen didn't even have a spot on this team.

    I meant that we should trade Jensen this deadline. Seems there’s some buzz around him and if we can get a 2nd or multiple picks we should do it.

    Holland should have made the Red Wings invest heavily in the research of brain transplants so that Franzen could have gotten a new one around ’10. Hell, who knows, he might even have gotten a brain with lesser tendecies towards flosting and being lazy!

    I agree but I wouldn’t really mind Kronwall as a seventh defenseman on a cheap contract on the conditions that atleast one of them are gone and Hronek is in the top four. I also think we should cash in on Jensen if we have the opportunity.
