    NHL 2018 Player Ratings

    Aside from AA and Kronwall, these ratings couldn't be more accurate

    KHL Struggling Financially Looks like a number of teams will be folding next season. Theres a report in the article that a player hasn't even been paid since October. Looks like the crazy contracts handed out to players are coming back as a negative for the league.. Good news for the NHL?

    Jake Guentzel

    Drafted him in the last round of my playoff pool.... hes winning me alot of money
  6. Mike Illitch most certainly would not have let Holland go in order to bring Yzerman back. I'm not sure Yzerman even wants to come back anyways, there has been no indication that is the case

    Jacob Trouba

    Trouba is not worth AA and a 1st, no way. Maybe in a couple years that trade makes sense but right now its risky for both teams and especially us. There is an extremely high chance we can just sign him when hes a UFA. AA + a couple thirds makes more sense but I think he should be almost untouchable right now. Wouldn't want to trade any of our assets for an upoming FA.
  8. Nice to see about 15 octopus on the ice lastnight especially the game after this stupid PETA thing

    04/04 GDT : at Ottawa Senators 2, Red Wings 0

    Blashill was quoted today as saying he needs to work on his defensive game and make more opportunities 5 on 5. He continuously throws him under the bus to reporters...not the best way to treat a young offensive player

    04/04 GDT : at Ottawa Senators 2, Red Wings 0

    AA with 7 minutes again... barely any in the third. Can't stand Blashill 3 games left in the regular season and hes trying to make a point to a player who is a key part in the future. Makes no sense

    Your Feeling?

    I tuned out of this season about 10 games in. Nothing worth watching, here.

    Martin Frk claimed off waivers by Red Wings

    For real though, has anyone made a waiver claim on us in the past 10 years that arent the Carolina Hurricanes?

    Pulkkinen claimed by Minnesota Wild

    Pulks just punched his ticket as a career AHLer. If I'm him I just go with it and rip up the AHL for the next 10 years lol

    Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

    Nielsen was one of the best players at the WCH, tons of fans and analysts are saying he has looked fantastic. I don't see how signing backes over nielsen would have been better, and even if it is, what makes you think he would have wanted to come to detroit? NYI fans were fuming that Nielsen left to come to Detroit. Also, backes has had 119,104, and 83 PIM the past 3 seasons. 25 minutes of those are for fighting. We don't need guys who can't play defence and take tripping/hooking penalties. We have enough with Larkin Ericsson and Abby

    Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

    I'd still take Datsyuk for 40 games over Vanek for the next 5 seasons

    Tom McCollum heads to LA for PTO w/Kings

    I was under the impression he was under contract for one more season but I probably just wasn't paying enough attention Good for him, he has potential to be a good backup. He stepped up this season but it seems like Coreau stepped up even more.

    Jack Eichel is better than Dylan Larkin

    Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

    I'll have to disagree, but of course theres no way of knowing because its all speculation Larkin, prior to the end of the past season, had never played 82 games in a season before. NCAA teams play roughly 40 games a year, at a decreased level of intensity. Add the travel schedule and pressure of the NHL, and its pretty easy to get winded at the halfway point of the season. I fully expect Larkin to be more consistent this season.

    Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

    We can't really compare Larkin and AA right now because AA didn't play 80 games at the NHL level. (or at all) Larkin started off blowing everyone out of the water at the beginning of the season, but he started to slow down. This could have just as easily happened to AA and I think we are going to see exactly what kind of player he will become this upcoming season. I think people really under value the ability of players to play 80 games consistently Having said that, I'm just as excited about AA as I am with Larkin. I think we have two different types of players here, but AA is probably the closest thing we will get to Datsyuk for a long time

    Last time we were good we had what, 8-10 guys in the top 200 for fantasy? Lidstrom, Rafalski, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Kronwall, Franzen, Hudler, Filpulla Just kind of puts it into perspective that changes need to be made to make us contenders again
