    KANE!!!!! _GDT vs Sharks_2023-12-7_8:00 AST

    Our coaching staff is trying to will Husso into being "that guy"...and I just don't see it. They are going to need to readjust their expectations on him. Yes, he plays above average at moments, but then has these breakdowns where he gives up really soft goals...like awful goals. He totally lacks consistency. Our D and back-checking is a weakness as well...for the life of them they can't seem to cover the trailing guy on rushes/odd man rushes. I've witnessed this at least 5+ times this season. Our D has numbers and both our D commit to taking away the cross ice pass to the other forward...and they drop pass to trailing forward that is all alone, not covered, free and clear for a quality shot. Frustrating.

    Patrick Kane IS a Detroit Red Wing

    It's a tryst of passion. Any Wings players have hot moms?....I'm sure they do...but nothing an STD rumor can't fix. This. Do not want Larkin, Kane, and Cat on the same line.

    Patrick Kane IS a Detroit Red Wing

    Perry would help this team on a real area of need...bigger guy who's absolutely not afraid to get greasy in front of the net and pretty much anywhere on the ice. He's always been one of those players that I hate because of the way he plays and instigates....but also knowing that I'd love to have him on the Wings. We haven't had someone of his caliber in terms of driving the opposition nuts since Malts...and Perry is 4x the offensive player Malts was. I view Perry as a mix between Homer and Malts. Yes...on every level. Although is production has dropped off as he's gotten older...even at age 38...he is still a problem.

    News From Around the NHL *Mod warning page 75*

    They should send Babcock to the homes of the players expected to go in the 1st round. Surprise
  5. Last night was a reminder of how much I hate the overtime format. What a joke. 6 guys skating in a circle for 4:30 with :30 seconds of actual hockey being played. Lame. Let them load up 5-5 and play hockey for 5 minutes.

    FLAMES @ WINGS 5:00 EDT - Joegod edition

    Did anyone hear Ozzy post game state that he thinks Larkin is likely the best player in the NHL right now?? I know he's a homer, but I was surprised he said that out loud.

    FLAMES @ WINGS 5:00 EDT - Joegod edition

    I don't know if I'd mess with this chemistry at this point. I'd be concerned that bringing Kane in would almost force LaLonde to break up this line to get Kane with Cat....for all we know, Larkin is a superior partner. Not saying he wouldn't be a good/great addition...but dang, how can you screw with this at this point.

    Bold Predictions for the 2023-24 Season

    Trust me...I hope you're right. I just see them improving this year and making it to the ECF. However, I don't think they'll win the cup, and I think they'll digress after this year.

    Bold Predictions for the 2023-24 Season

    Raymond scores 30+ regular season goals Seider finishes regular season with 60+ Pts The Wings are buyers at the trade deadline, but Perron is thrown included in a trade and no longer a Wing Wings make playoff's as 6 Seed Wings take the Leafs to 6 games and lose in ECF

    Playoff HYPE, next 6 games

    I agree....but i absolutely don't want a rental at this point. I'd be okay with a player we have on the books for next year. Also, anxiously scanning the radar for Kenny to find and acquire the oldest big name player with ties to Edmonton to bolster their team....and overpay. It's like death and taxes.

    New New Prospects Thread

    Agreed, but there is also a fine line (art form really) of dangling players to the market who look like they may have more potential upside and other teams acquiring them in hopes of getting more than the Wings have out of said player vs. keeping these guys in an attempt to get player improvement and showcasing them...when all you may do is confirm to other GM's that these players aren't very good. Sell what you can't see vs. Sell what we have....tricky and that's what good GM's are excellent at managing. I believe in some cases getting something for these guys now is better than continuing to develop or attempt to develop and confirming to other GM's that some of these guys aren't every night NHL'rs.

    7/11 - "Backup GDT in case...ya know" - Wings vs Caps

    Agreed. There were flashes of the Left Wing Lock in the 3rd. Our breakout and first pass by the D weren't quick or precise enough to get through/behind them most of the night.

    BLASHILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

    Don't you think that some team will take him at TD or next year as a 3rd/4th line veteran presence?? At the very least, he's consistent (consistently average...my opinion yes) and would likely be cheap$. I've heard some argue he's above average and plays the unsung hero role on the D and providing support to some of our young D that are still learning the NHL game. I don't agree. However, I think the Wings will try and move him, and if not, will def not take him on again. You gotta think he (and his agent) are going to push for another 1 or 2 year deal to play anywhere to pad the pocketbook. Most players today don't have much prospects of making big $$ after their playing days are over...yeah they can coach, commentate TV/Radio, yada yada....but rarely have big $$ opportunities awaiting after they hang up the skates. My gut tells me he's going to play and get paid as long as he can, for whatever team will pay him. The fact that he's an Assistant Captain will at the very least attract looks from other GM's for sure.
  14. i honestly don't think it would have any effect on the 2020/21 season. Maybe I'm wrong, but really only a few teams would be playing that late into July as they move through the brackets. The two teams in the SCF would still have a month+ to rest and get ready for the next season. Maybe delay the start of the season by a few weeks or something..but these teams/venues/cities are going to be desperate to get people in the doors asap. They'll want the season to start as soon as possible due to losing months of revenue$ due to the season suspension.
  15. Since the Tigers are...um...not good, it would be awesome to have summer playoffs.
