  1. 10 ton elephant in the room.

    I've been away from this board for a long time, just recently came back and I have one question? What the heck happened to the Red Wings fanbase? Buyout ZETTERBERG?! Are you serious? I hate to be mean but come on! Some of these comments and trade proposals are miserable.
  2. Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

    Teams won't want our pending UFA's and we have ZERO salary cap. The Red Wings probably will make no deals.
  3. Almqvist or Backman

    Almquist just surpassed his point totals from last season with about 30 or so games to go(31 points last year, 32 so far this year). 2 goals and 9 assists in his last 7 games. Also scored the shootout winner tonight(only player to score). Regardless of size, it's hard to not be a little bit excited about the offensive potential.
  4. Almqvist or Backman

    Regardless of his size, because I hate when people bring it up, Almquist is going to be a solid defenseman for the Wings if he gets the chance. I watch him constantly when I watch the Griffins, and he's outstanding offensively. I don't regret saying this next statement, but he reminds me so much of Lidstrom offensively. He's always got his head up, makes great passes, and he always keeps his shot low to the ice. Sure, he isn't going to knock anybody over, but he positions himself well, and is incredibly intelligent. None of us have seen Backman play, but I assume he will be good. But I can truly say I have watched Adam and I am truly impressed by him.
  5. What the Wings are doing for the fans

    Hate to break it to some people, I am not sure you'll be getting a password. Mine was my Season Ticket Account Number, and I am not risking being the guy who's code is used 100+ times...or risk some stealing my tickets.
  6. Operation Bobblehead - Alumni style

    Anybody else feeling that this has become a pointless promotion because everyone is voting for players that already have 20 different bobbleheads(Draper, Maltby, McCarty). I'd like to see at least a Sawchuk or heck, write in Bob Probert.
  7. Ilitch, Chelios to fly to Suter, Holland to fly to Parise

    Just heard on NHL Network, apparently no teams are visiting Parise. Do not want a situation like last year with Brad Richards. Also, Parise wants $12-million signing bonus, as well as $12-million the first year of deal.

  9. I may get flamed for this...

    Honestly, balls or no balls, if I woke up to that every morning, I'd commit murder for her, Hhaha.
  10. Leafs continue to pillage Anaheim

    HAHAHAHAHAHA, that couldn't be more true. Now we will see if the guy is legit if he can turn the leafs goalies into something presentable.
  11. Helm t-shirt

    I've got my Helm jersey, but I've only seen a female helm shirt during last years playoffs.
