have no cap space and most players youd want to trade either have a NTC or NMC or wouldnt be worth anything. 


Salary cap is about to increase. There are plenty of ways to get it done.

Well.....we could go ahead and sign Cleary for 15 years at 500K per season and could free up some more space. I'm sure that's what they are doing right now.

This season is very depressing.  It's not so much that I believe this team is bad or won't make the playoffs, but I simply just do not like the make up of this team, I dislike some of the players, the attitude, the current lines, and the GM's moves. I hope they start to pull there heads out there asses and actually ice the best team we can. 


There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

It's tough to get over the frustration after a game like this when we play well and still lose, especially when these type games keep piling up.

 

Maybe it's like they say in baseball that broken bat hits and line drive outs even themselves out at the end of the year, let's hope that these losses even themselves out and we start winning games that we shouldn't as well as games that we should.

Excited to see Jurco. Hope he tears it up like Nyquist and Tatar, though it's unlikely.

Yes I can't believe they've been scratching Zetterberg, Helm, Howard and Dekeyser lately. Now I hear Abby's getting pulled too?

I love the the way this team will look when healthy.

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Alfredsson
Franzen-Weiss-Nyquist
Abdelkader-Helm-Tatar
Miller-Andersson-Glendening

is my guess at a post- trade deadline lineup without injuries. Maybe I'm too optimistic, but Babcock seems to slowly be getting over his Cleary love affair and Bert will probably play his way out of the lineup by that point. The only question is Weiss but he could possibly be shuffled to the 4th line and Helm on 2nd if he keeps playing like he has been.

I am feeling the same, the makeup of the current DetroitRedWings just seems to be missing something and it's not just grit, toughness given their streaky season so far it seems like the hunger to win and dedication has been lost. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but as a GM there needs to be a player turnover, otherwise mediocrity and country club atmosphere are the reward.

Also once again they didn't stick up for each other, Engelland ellbows Abdelkader and no reaction...Despite Z Pasha, Nyquist, Tatar, monster and Danny K there is nothing to like about this team. Maybe missing the playoffs will finally wake up the front office and this hanging on to spots will turn into some sort of a rebuild..

Anyway I'very thought other teams wouldn't play their enforcers against this team? For sure they do and why not the PP sucks.

This is a game where everybody played well but we simply didn't have the fire power to compete. Can't fault anyone aside from the Defense. They know they suck we've grown to accept it and still manage to win the odd game.

Holland should watch other teams play and see how our defensive corps is miles below any playoff team.

Wings Defensemen are terrible. There should be one of Smith, Kindl and Quincey on a decent D lineup but not all of them playing at the same time night in and night out. It's starting to catch up they are well below an average nhl defensive corpse. Holland needs to make an upgrade because there is 3 defensemen in this lineup that could be part of a good team
