  1. I'll never get the time I wasted reading this "Mickey's Drunk" garbage back... Honestly, I'd say if you don't understand the greatness of Mickey's analysis, you probably haven't been a hockey fan for long enough. There's obviously some nostalgia on my part, but Mickey's an old timer who knows the game and understands it in it's present form and the glory days as well. Nothing like those "old time hockey" stories. Show Mick some respect...
  2. David Legwand only deal for RedWings. No other trades involving Detroit. Helene St. James (@HeleneStJames)
  3. Apparently it wasn't... Nashville didn't think it was more than enough. I think it's a good move. It's a need at this point. Hopefully helps us make the playoffs.
  4. Depends on who the "Prospect" is...
  5. I think they have to have the actual details of the deal turned into the league by 3:00 pm EST... they can keep talking on the phone, but they have to have it turned in to the league.
  6. The Salary Cap plays into all these, "Why didn't we get ___ ?" players as well.
  7. The trade has to be turned into the league before 3:00 pm EST I believe.
  8. Still waiting for Helen St. James to report... "Holland says no moves today."
  9. Not making a move on a day where we've seen so many 3rd-5th round picks going for halfway decent players is what is really pissing me off... Kenny did a lot for this team and I trust him, but you're telling me we can't get something done?
  10. This is why I like what Shero is doing... there was a time it seemed like Kenny made moves to show the team he believed in them and wasn't afraid to go all in to win.
  11. Yes... maybe a 2nd Rounder would do the trick. At least then Pavel has a real scoring threat on his line.
  12. The thing I find it hard to understand is who the Red Wings really have in their system that is so precious... they have one of the best players in the world on their team RIGHT NOW. Why are we letting him play on a line with Franzen, Cleary/Abdelkader? Holland needs to make some bold moves to provide the talent to surround his core players, especially Datsyuk & Zetterberg. Iginla would have filled a need that this team desperately needs. The way I look at it, either you trade for some talent to win now or start rebuilding. Pavel is worth picking up some real talent... -------------- By the way, found this Tweet from Brett Hull interesting: Brett hull ‏@2ndBestHull53m Pitt starting to remind me of 2002 Wings #wholebunchofhallofamers!
  13. Yeah, the Hawks are a horrible team...
  14. No matter how you spin it, the Pens and their Management decided to make a push. All you people saying that Morrow & Murray are not that good are full of crap. Are they Superstars? No. Are they good character/depth guys? Yes. Will they make your team tougher to play against in a 7 game series? You bet your ass. Iginla has all those abilities and more... I'm tired of everyone talking about how we don't need guys like that. Pavel & Hank are players worthy of having Kenny go out and pick up some players to make a run. Shero had the guts to make some moves on a team that is playing amazing hockey. Even though Jerome wanted to play there, Shero still had to put the deal together. Apparently if he wanted to play here, Kenny wouldn't need to make the move. Delusional.
  15. ...and just to add to that question, who in the Wings organization do we have ready to fill that role? Quickly too, since it seems Pavel is headed home at the end of 2014. All this to say, you have Pavel, Zetterberg and Flip right now. You are about to possibly lose two of them in the next two years. Maybe it's time for a couple bold moves to take another shot at the Cup. Kenny didn't do enough last year (or the year before really) and Lidstrom must've known that things weren't going to get better, because he could've continued to play if there was a "chance" at another Cup.
