  2. Why the Red Wings should be sellers this year

    And that is exactly the problem with my argument For the next 10+ years we are going to have to hear about the Cinderella Kings, and possibly lose out at a prime window of opportunity to add some solid pieces in a rich draft and a shortened season. I'm just playing the odds here... we have better odds at improving the team in the next 4 months (trades & draft) than we do at winning a cup, but both are possible. It's just about which is more likely and a better sports business/future gamble. We of all teams should know what it truly takes to both make a solid cup run and win it. I don't think this is our year, just trying to be honest as much as it pains me to do so.
  3. Why the Red Wings should be sellers this year

    Anybody but Pav, Hank, Jimmy, Kronner and Helm. I'd say Fil would catch top dollar. Some teams may want a veteran d-man like White or Huskins. Or other vets like Cleary, Miller, or Eaves. These players are not valued that high on our team, but teams (like the Wings) have over paid for depth in the past at the deadline. I don't see any of these player being on the Wings much past a year more. We have our base, and need to build off of that. And sometimes that means parting with an important part, like Fil or Mule. Tigers did it with Granderson, and look now, I'd say the Tigers made the right, but tough move.
  4. For the first time in MANY years, I believe the Red Wings would be better off as sellers at this years trade deadline rather than buyers. Here's why: 1. This years draft is one of the deepest in many years. A lot of talent out there. The lower we finish in the standings the better the pick. 2. Because of the shortened season, most teams (even the Wings) are still in the playoff hunt and feel they should do whatever it takes to make the playoff. Thus, the price tag on players is going to be much more than what they are truly worth. We could get more bang for our buck. Could be prospects, draft picks, etc. 3. Let's face it, this years team doesn't have the make up for a long post season run. Not to mention, the fact we can't stay injury free.
  5. Nabokov injured

    Looks like a MCL sprain. My guess is he will be out 3-4 weeks. We'll see in the morning... you heard it here first! Now lets see if I am right!
  6. Franzen's Hat

    You described it perfectly!!! It was a sweet hat... I'd love to get my hands on one!
  7. Franzen's Hat

    Did anyone watch the post game interview with Mule today? It looked like he had on a hat that had that had both the old english D of the Tigers and the winged wheel of the Red Wings. Now granted, I only have a 27 in TV so it was hard to tell if that was really it, but if so... have you seen one in the stores and where can I get one? Thanks!!! I believe it was red.
  8. Run ins wearing the red.

    Like I have always said... Sharks fans are like Raider fans, but with more money!
  9. The LetsGoWings Calendar curse?

    My vote is for Pronger for April!!!
  10. Run ins wearing the red.

    I attended a very special game. I kind of even realized it at the time! I remember telling a San Jose Sharks fan to watch that rookie playing in his very first NHL game. That rookie... #40 Hank! I was lucky enough to see his NHL debut (he got his first career point by assisting on a Fedorov goal) on October 10, 2002 live in San Jose! Check out the game recap below: Now if I can only find that ticket stub... that would be cool to frame with an auto'd picture of him.
  11. Who do we WANT to play in the first round?

    my answer: nobody! First round bye sounds great to me. I will NEVER pick my poison.
  12. McCarty WILL join Wings a week from Monday

    D Mac - Drake - Downey = CRASH LINE
  13. Why we should be happy to lose

    Any chance of a first round bye??? Oh sorry, that's only in my fantasy league.
  14. Odds of Wings making a move?

    They will make one or two "small" moves, but nothing major because the "price was too high"
