    RyanBarnes! got a reaction from marcaractac in Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV   
    Quincey actually played well defensively the second half, he is just not producing much offense. I'll take it if Kindl is gone.

    Ritchie, Tuch, Perlini, Larkin one of those 4 pls stay the hell away from guys like Ehlers, Barbashev. If they pick him might as well throw the pick away because he will go to the khl if things arent going his way
    Also enough with the small soft euros need some hometown boys and size and grit

    I predict that Holland will trade down and pick Barbashev. Or they keep the pick and select Kempe.

    RyanBarnes! reacted to Richdg in Alfie informs Wings he wants to return   
    If people don't like my opinions, I couldn't care less. We do all have one thing in common: We want the RW's to win SC's. That simple. The fact is our record has gotten worse every year for the past 4 seasons. The answer being provided to us is: bring everyone back and expect better results. Nothing works like that.

    RyanBarnes! got a reaction from krsmith17 in Detroit re-signs Gustavsson 1 yr $1.85 mill   
    Re-signing Gustavsson would be a wise move I think. There will be injuries, so Mrzek will probably play some in the NHL anyway.

    RyanBarnes! got a reaction from frankgrimes in Todd Bertuzzi will not be re-signed   
    I agree, let Alfie walk. You could see he slowed down considerably during the second half of the season. I hope Holland has learnt from his mistakes with Cleary, Samuelsson and Bertuzzi...

    RyanBarnes! got a reaction from The Secret in Trading up?   
    I'd do it, and I dont think it would be very crazy. Zetterberg is nearing the end of his career and Ekblad is a possible franchise defenseman.

    Might as well sign Legwand without trading any assets. Spezza produces slightly more offense but the physical upgrade is not great.

    Babcock should have the team look at the powerplays of this series. The defensemen launches rocket one timers on goal every chance they get. It takes forever for any Red Wing defenseman to get a shot off.

    We need a legitimate enforcer and a scoring powerforward imo. A powerforward is virtually impossible but I would settle for a skilled hard working guy like Callahan, Dubinsky or Matthias. The latter is perhaps a possibility as he seems to struggle a bit lately.

    RyanBarnes! reacted to frankgrimes in ECQF - Game 5 - Red Wings at Bruins - 3:00 PM EST   
    Positives:
    Holland wanted answers he has them now:
    Team needs to get bigger, meaner, tougher and still younger.
    Re-sign Dekeyser, Monster (if he wants) and bring in defensive help plus 2 enforcers.
    DONE
    Mule, Alfie, Legwand, Bertuzzi, Miller ......
    DO NOT
    sign someone like Jagr, Selanne...
    play the young kids add toughness and look hard at the Boston model that's the way to build a playoff winner.
    Boston is the team coming out of the east and hopefully they are facing someone not name Blackhawks

    RyanBarnes! reacted to IndianaRedWing in ADQF | Game 3 | Boston 3 @ Detroit 0, BOS leads series 2-1   
    So much denial here. Howard didn't kill the Wings' chance to win tonight. From the opening faceoff, the Wings never gave themselves a chance.
    When you score 2 goals in 3 games and you *aren't* facing elimination in game 4, there's a good chance that your goalie is your series MVP. Not because he's necessarily been lights out, but because everyone has been worse.
    And even then, it's not enough. Apparently, there's widespread belief that Howard has to keep track of when his teammates are having, ahh, that time of month. He has to wear the pants on the team.
    Okie dokie.
    It's unbelievable that people think the team that's showed up for the first 3 games could legitimately compete for the cup, but for Howard. Whatever makes the loss easier to take, I guess. It's probably better than booze.

    And then what?? Watch as Thornton, Lucic and Chara destroy half our team? Detroit has no business getting physical with the Bruins, or any other team for that matter.
