  1. Just came across this and if it is true, very disturbing. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.freep.com/amp/698312002

    Ken Holland

    It firmly believe it was others that surrounded Holland that made this organization and draft successful/competitive. Wings organization lost a lot of key members. Additionally, the coaching staff had been downgraded also. Over the years the Wings lost Bowman, Yzerman, and Nill; just to make a few.

    10/10 GDT - Red Wings @ Stars - 8:30 PM EST

    It was brutal to watch. Not much offensive pressure, some of the better chances and shots missed the net, and a soft goal. Lack of face off wins and turnovers again.....

    10/7 GDT: Red Wings 2, Ottawa Senators 1 (SO)

    I think the Wings are lucky being 2-0 as in the last game, 2 goals were called off and they were outshot. With the game against the Sens, too many breakaways, goal posts, and were outshot again. Wings need to tighten down on turnovers and keep the shots down.

    Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    Maybe the organization realizes it has to stop overpaying players, so they are going to start with AA? I guess let him go where he wants and gets to play, have fun in Russia?

    If trades are made, the organization is going to have to retain a portion of the salary. There is no way other teams are going to take on the players and the contracts that you along with them.

    The organization created this problem, now question is how are they going to fix it.

    10/21 GDT : at Red Wings 5, Nashville Predators 3

    I hear the Preds got a hold of some bad chicken noodle soup, food poisoning from what I read

    10/22 GDT : at Red Wings 3, San Jose Sharks 0

    Win face offs, don't take stupid penalties, no turnovers, and defense shows up, then we will have a chance

    Larkin back at Wing, hope we can get going. Thinking center was a bit too much for him

    Aren't the Wings carrying 3 goalies currently? And it has been in speculation for a long time that with the expansion draft we will lose some players with heavier contracts? Howard has all the tools, like others have said mentally, he can be his own worst enemy. And let's be honest, the team has let the goalies hang out to dry many times over the last few years and of course the goalies themselves have had bad games which we should have won This is what brings me back for more, the excitement and love for the game

    Blashill tinkering with lines after Tampa loss

    Wings were up 3-0 in the game against Tampa and we lost, not sure if mixing up the lines is/was the issue as the Wings as patterns with being inconcistent have been the same

    Jacob Trouba watch

    Frans and Vanek is what this team needed, now we need D I am neutral on Mantha, to me yes his game needs to develop more, but that is why is an enigma to me Wings need a few defenseman, this is known... Do we overpay? A trade will happen, just when and who will be involved is the question. We have too many forwards - even after losing Frk and Pulks for nothing

    Jacob Trouba watch

    Will the wings clear out the cupboard for a potential top d? Yeah, we need 2 defenseman, not just one. Mantha has been an enigma, lets be honest.

    10/19 GDT - Red Wings 2 at Rangers 1

    The 3rd period was a little better than the first 2 Tatar, Nyquist, Larkin, and Z are baffling to me Turnovers, penalties, the defense, positioning, and losing face offs are hand cuffing this team

    Howard is from up state New York, his stats against the Rangers are pretty good from what I remember. Howard has something to prove to everyone and himself. He won the game last night with some help from Vanek/Nielson Glendenning/Miller Wings as a whole did not help out their cause again, 3 games now they have pretty much handed the game to the other team. Difference is the wings ended up winning last night, Petr played just as well in those games as Howard and we lost This was one game, not 10-15 in row. Yes LA and the Yotes may need a goalie, but doubt they will looking at Howard as an option this early on in the season

    10/19 GDT - Red Wings 2 at Rangers 1

    Rangers deserved to win, Howard stole this one and one of the few Wings who showed up tonight Too many bad passes, turn overs, and penalties. They played sloppy

    10/13 GDT : at Tampa Bay Lighting 6, Red Wings 4

    Can't be up 3-0 and then play from behind. Give-a-ways, penalties, and sub par defense is why we lost

    Frk claimed by the Carolina Hurricanes

    Cannot protect everyone, the fact that when we waive such players with potential and they are picked up says a lot I am thinking no team would trade for these players due to possibly losing out on their own potential prospects AA and Mantha have more upside and potential than Pulks or Frk, but Frk baffles me that he wasn't protected All I know there needs to be a change on the back end and if we loose a handful of good players upfront for the backend to be upgraded, so be it Kenny is walking a very fine line and should be on a very short leash Think everyone hear is frustrated when we lose someone for nothing and the current state of the team, it is a transition as fans have been spoiled for so long, change in a tough way is not always easy to swallow I cannot fathom what it feels like to a native of Toronto and watching the Leafs every year
