  1. 10/13 - Red Wings at Golden Knights - 10:30 PM EST

    Ha! This stuff reminded me the gladiator introduction of Ottawa Senators back in 2011 or 2012 play-offs. There are good, ok, and bad intros. This one is in its own land...
  2. So far, Howard is playing the best hockey of his career. I personally didn't even think he could be that good.
  3. Pre-Season Games

    Tried to find highlights on but it seems those are unavailable for preseason games. Is this true?
  4. P.A. Parenateau PTO

    I have a feeling we'll sign one or both... Athanasiou will play in Russia while Svechnikov and Bertuzzin in GR. It is becoming more and more frustrating.
  5. Twilight years Zetterberg vs. Datsyuk

    I voted Datsyuk simply for how Red Wings started to look like once he departed. However, it is as close as one gets.
  6. Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    the problem is that 40 years old Datsyuk is miles ahead of everyone except for Zetterberg on the Detroit roster. As a fan I don't like what Athanasiou is doing but I can understand him.
  7. Red Wings Expansion Draft Protected List

    Tomorrow we'll have no goalie for the future... F......!!!!!
  8. Sabres acquire Beaulieu for pick

    Well, the absence of trades like this is a problem with Holland. Beaulieu and players like him won't save us immediately but he would have been huge upgrade over the likes of Oulette, Sproul, Jensen of whoever we going to play in top 4 this season. And we have like zillion 3rd round picks this year. Multiple trades like this may make a team gradually better.... we are instead looking/waiting for some magic, where someone is going to give us franchise D for nothing.

    This. And I honestly have no issues with them winning it two times in a row. They are, in fact, the best team right now and they also proving (similarly to the Red Wings back in 08 and 09) that having two elite and matured centers is enough to win the Cup. However, I still have mixed feelings about Pens winning in 09. They were definitely not ready but the NHL used all the tools they had to push them to the Cup. I still believe that 09 Pens is one of the most undeseving champs over 30 years I'm watching NHL. It all starts at 29.05.
  10. 4/3 GDT: at Red Wings 5, Ottawa Senators 4 (SO)

    Can we get Evgeni's brother Andrei drafted next year? He is miles ahead of Evgeni in terms of talent and stated multiple times that he wants to play with his brother.
  11. Columbus Blue Jackets

    Have you noticed their 1st D pairing? Werenski - Jones. Two top 2 D logging a lot of minutes. In my opinion, these two guys as well as Bobrovski are the reason they are playing so well,
  12. 12/17 GDT - Ducks 4 at Red Wings 6

    which speech?
  13. Who's to blame?

    Ownership has nothing to do with the current situation. They provided Red Wings one of the highest payroll in the league, what else can they do? Inept management, basically, living from the past is what our real problem is.
  14. Defense

    There is nothing unrealistic in getting a trade done around a good winger and some additional pieces for a good defenseman. Also, one can always slightly overpay for a free agent to fill the most critical need. However, this is not going to happen with KH.
  15. Defense

    Well, it is kind of obvious that we are not going to get true #1 D in a trade, simple because we have no assets to trade for one... However, it does not mean we need to continue having Kronwall-Green as our first pairing, Try to land a Fowler type of defenseman in a trade for Tatar+ or Nyquist+. Try to sign Shattenkirk next summer. Keep Green and we are going to get something like Shattenkirk-Fowler Green - DeKeyser Sproul - Kronwall and this is much better than what we have now, a kind of D by committee (too offensive minded though). However, to do this you need a GM who is willing to work on the phone.
