  1. Rumors Thread

    Should we be trying to land someone like Tavares who would be better on a team that’s ready to win now, or should we focus on building through the draft and trading for young prospects. It seems like we are 5-8 years from being contenders if all goes well, so getting someone who will be out of their prime by then is pointless. Stop Gap mediocre players like Neilsen I don’t mind as much. Keep in mind I can’t watch any games so my estimation of our success is probably baseless.
  2. 10/18 GDT - Red Wings at Maple Leafs - 7:30 PM EST

    Sure, if we want Ghost Babcock mentoring the next young coach to eventually beat us in the finals.
  3. Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    That's Frank's only determining factor.
  4. That wouldn't even be as sad as if what you're saying otherwise is true.

    I love the description for Coreau.
  6. 2017 Draft

    Both Tyler Wright and Ken Holland spoke highly of Rasmussen's off ice character, and it seemed, at least in the short interviews, that it weighed heavily in their decision. I know virtually nothing about this process, does this seem to anyone as a valid reason for picking him over other players that were ranked better?
  7. 2017 ECQF: Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

    Seriously someone who knows these playoff teams better than me, who is going to stop the Penguins from winning again?
  8. Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

    He scored a pretty one tonight.
  9. I agree with you, but I find it's productive to affect progress in the corner of world we occupy. Red Wings hockey is our arena and this is an interesting and relevant topic to discuss.
  10. That's the point, there's an argument to made for eating them as organisms use other organisms to survive, but we don't want a market for gorilla hands (there is one for some reason) but if eating gorillas was important in keeping human around I'd probably eat a gorilla. Of course they may be an argument for not eating octopi at all but I don't know that I'm prepared to present it. Similar to this situation, I'd be opposed to the pepperoni throwing enough to discuss its merits on this forum, but am not going to picket outside the arena.
  11. I mean outdated in the sense that as time passes we scrutinize our actions and traditions to evaluate if they are harmful or contribute to our overall wellbeing. Rivers are no longer used for waste disposal (outside of New Jersey haha) because we realized it was harmful. While this is not as impactful a situation the same scrutiny can be applied. Peta is an extreme organization and as that qualifier implies, there is a middle ground between the opposing ideologies. Usually what is sensible lies somewhere Between the two. Should we kill gorillas and elephants for trophies and ivory? Should we instead outlaw killing all animals even for food? Certainly not, but can we recognize that octopi are intelligent and emotionally complex beings and maybe eating them is acceptable but throwing a dead octopus or chicken or whatever on the ice for the sake of remembering a group of guys who were really good at hockey is something we can turn the page on? Anyway, that's my thoughts on the matter.
  12. I don't know about fined, but it's kind of an outdated tradition. I don't mind killing animals to eat them as much, but Octopi are intelligent animals and throwing them on the ice seems wasteful.

    A clean hit in Russia is when everyone believes they died of natural causes.
  14. 2017 NHLTrade Deadline Discussion

    Four of Vanek's points came in one game too (his most recent). So maybe he's either starting to build chemistry with his team or just had one good game.
  15. GDT 3/12/17 New York Rangers @ Detroit Redwings

    Whoops I made one too, and you made 3 just for good measure!
