  1. We might've snuck in again, but it's a toss up. We wouldn't have gotten far if we had.
  2. Can't say it enough, hated losing Eaves. Heart and soul player with skill. If not for the goofy injuries, I think heblikey would've developed more of a role here.
  3. I never liked losing Eaves. He had bad luck here with injuries and we used him poorly.
  4. Pretty standard hasn't gotten us anywhere. We have way too many middle of the road prospects that don't make the kind of impact we need. Any way you shake it, this is likely to be a weak draft for the Wings.
  5. Too bad Smith's mental game was so far behind his physical ability. He could've been a much better player, but yeah, those countless bonehead plays. Oh well... Decent return for sure.
  6. But this guy's won at every level. We have no reason to believe he won't be successful in the NHL. The kids will listen to him. Kill me.
  7. Trade him. I really don't care at all at this point. Very few guys on this team, including Tatar, have much heart anyways. The level of apathy on display this season is pathetic. I'm truly ready for a full rebuild. This team lacks character; it's a sorry class of clowns for the most part. You don't have to have the most talented bunch, but you need guys with heart; you need winners. These guys are not winners.
  8. Fire E immediately out of sheer pettiness.
  9. Nah, but we'll put Glendenning on the power play so he can take a penalty right off the face off. Real gud.
  10. Ken Holland is the best GM in the game.
  11. Manny Legace and his noose for assistants.
  12. I rage quit my parents basement and ran upstairs yelling this very thing along with a tirade of other profane statements. Fun being back home for the holidays in some ways. Like being a kid again. But motherf***ing f***, it's getting harder and harder for me to be patient with Blash.
  13. I've suspected and said this for awhile, though never 100% committed to the idea. At this point though, I pretty much accept it as the likely truth. I don't think Holland is incompetent and I'm sure he brings more to the table than is easy to see from the outside. He wouldn't get the industry reverence he does otherwise. Bowman never seemed to have a problem working with him either, and Bowman certainly had the clout to push for a move if he wanted to. But I think Holland's been around too long, gotten too close to people, a little stale maybe, too cautious, he's lost some good people, still seems a bit aloof in the cap world, and so on and so forth. We're well past the point needing a shakeup, it's beyond obvious, but the management team needs a shakeup before that'll ever happen.
  14. This is management and ownership more than anything, and I say ownership primarily because they continue to allow the management to shoot for the middle. The Wings have lacked urgency and a spark for far too long and need a shakeup, top down. And goodness, I remember being ridiculed for being cautious about Blashill, though I still am giving him the benefit of the doubt personally and think it's possible that he could still develop into a solid coach. It's funny though certainly not shocking that once again, LGW has done what they do and completely turned on someone they once loved. Though to be clear, I'm not saying that it's a completely unjustified train of thought. I've always been on the fence about him and somewhat remain there, I simply don't think it's fair to blame him for the mountain of mediocrity that's been building building up in this organization for years. Anyone who expected him to come in and turn this mess of a team around was delusional.
