#1948485 Report: Hudler released from Moscow Dynamo

Posted by mindfly on 18 April 2010 - 11:00 AM

Does detroit really want this overly soft euro? he doesn't play defense and would only make a third line better offensively but in the same time worse defensively, and probably would make the 2nd pp unit better, but 2.875M caphit is kinda big with red wing measurement's

Get rid of the slow skating, traitor, money hungry midget. He turned his back on the organization for money... trade his ass, he isn't worth nearly 3mill a year anyway.


#1938375 Songs that make you laugh

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 12 April 2010 - 06:01 AM

Hail to the "Victors"...



What's funny about that? Despite Rich Rod's horrible first 2 years, Michigan is still has by far the highest winning percentage in college football history. And also, still owns Ohio State in the all time head to head record. OSU has had a good last 6 years against them, but even counting recent history of the past 30 years Michigan still owns OSU. So yeah, don't really see the humor in their fight song. Oh and btw, I went to Michigan State, so it's not like im hyping my home school or something. Get a clue buddy.

This next song also used to crack me up back in the day. And it definitely still does:

#1944907 WCQF Game 2 GDT: Red Wings 7 at Coyotes 4

Posted by micah on 16 April 2010 - 01:12 PM

Abdelkader kicks Doans ass....



That would be nice, but I doubt Doan would go with Abdelkadre, he has nothing to gain. Doan is the captain and heart and soul of his team - he'd fight Lids, Z, Pavel or Franzen - but all of them know they would get the snot kicked out of them if they tried anything, and none of them seem to have any sort of interest in making themselves noticed by meanies. No Wings had the guts to say to Doan on Wed, it's unlikely he gives our AHL callup a chance to slow him down.

Look for Abdelkadre and Fiddler or Hanzal tonight, and maybe some oddball Eaves scrap.

Go wings!

Huge game.

Wings gotta come out flying and slow them Yotes down! No sitting back, 60 minutes of hockey and get PHYSICAL. They'll come home Sunday with the series tied.

LET'S GO RED WINGS!!!!!!!


#1944959 Lidstrom hi-stick incident

Posted by esteef on 16 April 2010 - 02:54 PM

Remember 2008 game 6 with 3 minutes left in the game?...1 poor call on Hudler followed up by 2 obvious non-calls.

6 Penguins on the ice for some 30 seconds last spring?

How many goals waived off on Homer these past few years?

I'm no conspiracy type, but 1 thing is certain for our beloved Red Wings - they get screwed by the refs more often than not.

But see, you're not allowed to point out actual examples lest you be thrown in with the tin foil hat wearers.

#1944427 4/15 - Off Night Games

Posted by Crymson on 16 April 2010 - 12:02 AM

I really hate Jiri Hudler right now. If he weren't such a douchebag and had actually told the team that he was planning to go to the KHL, we'd have been able to re-sign Samuelsson.

F*ck you, Hudler. Stay in Russia.


#1943824 Abbys in!

Posted by bdavis on 15 April 2010 - 06:54 PM

I bet that was Williams last game wearing a winged wheel.


#1943770 Abbys in!

Posted by gcom007 on 15 April 2010 - 06:26 PM

As much as I've restrained my negativity towards the Williams signing all year, this is precisely why I don't get why we bothered to bring him back. What does he really bring to this team? I'd love to be proven wrong by him, but the guy has never been one to show up in the post-season, and he's certainly not a guy who you can count on to bring the physical level of play up in the grittier playoffs.

Siging Eaves made all the sense in the world and some at the price. Bert was totally worth the gamble at the price and I still say it's been a good deal for the Wings at $1.5 million.

But Jason Williams at $1.5 million? Really? I never got it...


#1942909 Will Buttman try to fix the playoffs?

It's not a conspiracy, it's just absolute s*** reffing. Chris Lee is awful, justf****** awful.


#1940279 'Twas The Night Before Playoffs

Posted by Peadydog on 13 April 2010 - 09:11 PM

With thanks to the original (unknown to me) author, here is the 2010 Version:

‘Twas the night before Playoffs, and all through the Joe
Not a player was skating, not fast and not slow;
The jerseys were hung from the rafters with care.
Stevie, Sid, Gordie, Terry, Ted, and Alex were there.

The fans in Detroit were all snug in their beds,
While Stanley Cup fever danced ‘round in their heads;
Kirk Maltby, Kris Draper, Brad Stuart, you see,
Would star in their dreams of what would soon be.

Next day on the ice there would be such a clatter,
That, for true fans of hockey, nothing else would matter .
Away to the arena, we fly like a flash,
(Unless we can’t get tickets, ‘cause we don’t have the cash).

The laser light show on the freshly groomed ice
Would light up the way as we welcome our guys!
Then, what to our wondering eyes should appear,
But the best of the NHL, as least so far this year.

With a Captain named Lidstrom, and a forward named ‘Tuzzi
We knew in a moment we all could be woozy.
More rapid than eagles, the players they came,
And we whistled and shouted, and called them by name;

“Now Rafalski! Now Kronwall! Now, go, Andreas Lilja!
On Datsyuk! On Zetterberg! And, Valtteri Filppula!
Into the Playoffs! With the best of the League!
There’s no turning back! There will be no fatigue!

As the Coyotes and the Sharks and the Blackhawks all cry,
When they meet with the Wings, and their Stanley dreams die.
As the Penguins do crumble, and Montreal meets with fate,
The Devils and Capitals will just have to wait.

For now, in a twinkling, no rest for the weary
Here’s Franzen!, and Helm!, and Danny Cleary
There’s Meech and Ericsson and Jimmy in net
Drew Miller, Patrick Eaves,The best fourth line yet

Then, dressed up so nicely, in the best they could find,
The coaches line up, with the trainers behind.
There’s MacLean and McCrimmon, and our golden Mike Babcock.
And, of course, Ozzie, the world’s best back up!


Our eyes, how they twinkle! Our hearts are so merry!
With Redmond to comment, or maybe Don Cherry.

With a wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Mike soon had assured us we had nothing to dread.
He spoke not a word, these guys know how to win
To The Finals we go, we can do this again.

They spring to the ice, as the referees whistle,
In pursuit of the Cup they will fly like a missile.
And the fans will exclaim, whether they lose or they win,
“Go, Red Wings! We Love You! What a great year it’s been!”

GO WINGS!!!!!


#1938628 How about Danny Cleary?

Posted by under_par_00 on 12 April 2010 - 01:29 PM

Cleary is one of the most injury prone Wings. He seems healthy now, but does anyone expect him to remain that way if the Wings make a deep run? I don't. Look at last years playoffs, he got off to a great start, and then slowed down considerably.


#1938040 Brad Stuart Appreciation Thread

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 11 April 2010 - 08:18 PM

Stuart was a great pickup for the Wings. solid middle pairing, and provides a much needed physical presence to the Wings defensive corps.

And as people have mentioned, he really stepped up for this team in the first half of the season when they were struggling with injuries, and just trying to right the ship in general.

Thank you LA Kings for letting him go (though with all their young talent at D, I can't blame them).

Still haven't forgiven him for game 7... :thumbdown:. Yes, I'm still bitter. :sly:


#1936036 4/9 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blue Jackets 0 (SO)

Posted by mindfly on 09 April 2010 - 08:44 PM

Unnecessary to let this game go to a shootout, 5min OT + skills competition when they could have rested up after 60mins...
