#2008703 TSN: Discussion of Modano To Wings

Posted by SFwingsfan on 01 July 2010 - 07:18 PM

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Franzen-Flip-Bertuzzi
Hudler-Modano-Cleary

That would be a sick lineup.


yeah it would be except for one thing....

bertuzzi sucks

Stuart has been imo one of KH's best acquisitions, without a doubt!

And this, my friend, has been your best post of the day. So far than well said. Stuie gets overlooked all the time.

Stuart never gets the recognition he deserves on this team. He has been incredibly solid since we signed him


Whatever we disagree with on other topics this will always be one of my favorite post you have ever made, I refrain from making this statement here because usually people point out one or two bad plays. It is like after losing to ANA in the WCF and making a compliment about Lilja, you got hosed for it!

btw, does anyone else think they would have been better served to just trade Hossa rather then 7 other players in Chicago?!?!?


Would Hossa alone have helped(serious question, I really don't know the numbers)? If not, I still see what you're saying, because they'd have to give up a lot less than what they had to give up.

I'll take a Mike Modano over a gritty forward today. No cup since, when was it? '99? He has to be hungry. And where better to win another than his home state?



Hell yes - let's offer 1 year contract to Gordie Howe - no cup since '55 - he has to be hungry...


#2007257 Lilja likely gone

Posted by Broken 16 on 30 June 2010 - 04:29 PM

Life must be pretty good in Red Wing Land if people are bemoaning the possible loss of a bottom pair defenseman...


Seriously... there are about a million dudes that could replace Lilja.

I like Lilja, but he is not a 'make or break' player by any stretch.


#2006446 Eurotwins to be reunited

Posted by Drake_Marcus on 29 June 2010 - 12:05 AM

Dude what world are you living in? 07-08 was his second season, how much more could you expect out of him than doubling his point total from his rookie year? 08-09 he never had a semblance of a chance on the 2nd line until the second half of the playoffs and last year he still played with 3rd/4th liners for half the year yet still put up 12 points in 15 games after he came back from his injury playing with Ritola/Abds/Williams/Cleary. I could call that carrying his line.

If Flip spends the year on the second line and gets adequate PP time and gets under 60 points/60 point pace I'll never post on this board again. And you can quote me on that one year from now. (I won't actually stop posting, but I'm willing to risk taking the reputational sacrifice)


He couldn't do it in 08-09 either. It's ok man. I want Filppula to be a star. I'm a Wings fan-- of course I do. But that doesn't change that fact that next season we'll be talking about his potential "break out year" like we have every year. Hopefully it will happen this year. No excuses. No "he needs x or y and he didn't get it so it doesn't count this time". We need Filppula to be a legit 2nd line centre who can put up points accordingly. And if he does break 50pts this year (and I sincerely hope he does because it will make the Wings a better team and he's a good player who deserves success) you don't get to gloat because you've been promising it for years now-- even a broken clock is correct twice a day. :cool:

Wow, Abby is going to be centering the highest scoring 3rd line in the NHL. Hudler, who Babcock has said publicly he expects 70 points from and a healthy Dan Cleary, who makes the same money so should be expected to put up the same numbers.....I'll buy Cleary's jersey if he even hits 60 points, and trust me when I say I'm not too worried about having to spend that $100.00.


How familiar are you with the concept of logic?

They've been trying this for years. It's a chance to see if Filppula can be a consistent 2nd line centre. This is the 3rd season they've tried it (4th if you count the start of 07-08). The past two seasons they had to abandon the plan because Filppula couldn't carry the 2nd line offensively. Hopefully this year will be different.


#2005926 Are We Not Good Enough to Win the Cup?

Posted by NBCnothingbutcrosby on 28 June 2010 - 01:21 AM

1. We're another year older.
2. We have a horrible 3rd line, and the 3rd line is key deep in the playoffs.
3. 4th line doesn't bring enough energy.
4. Howard is inconsistent in goal.
5. Cleary will probably be injure 70 games (had to do it).
6. Hudler doesn't deserve to be on this team, while others take paycuts he comes back flaunting 10million untaxed to rub in Lidstroms, Zetterbergs faces..
7. Too much dead weight still on the roster (Draper, maltby if signed, Meech)
8. Six D-men feels more like 4 1/2. Need a solid 6th, Kronner, Stu, and Raf need to play better.
9. Injuries, slumps remain unseen but will play a factor I see us narrowly taking 6-8th seed if we get lucky.

Team needs to get bigger, faster younger, which they addressed in the draft. :clap:
Filpulla needs to prove his worth, hudler needs to redeem himself
Howard needs to be a stable wall, Rafalski needs to earn his check

Cleary needs to geeeeeeeet out!
(god I hate you so fricken much cleary, I hope you attract a David lee Oswald type)


#2005862 Are We Not Good Enough to Win the Cup?

Posted by SouthernWingsFan on 27 June 2010 - 10:13 PM

Well, we are not the same team as last year, we got Hurled...er Hudler now! :ninja:

Speaking of Hurled, I guess the folks that gave you negs think that Hurled is better than Bobby Ryan, :hysterical: If we could somehow get Ryan here for Hurled, we'd be on the fast track for sure to the Cup! I don't get why so many people here think Hurled is the answer, he is not the missing piece, he may help a little, but if you're asking if the Wings would rather have Ryan or Hurled and a 1st, I think we ALL know what that answer would be, Bobby Ryan, hands down...

Nobody thinks that. You overdramatize everything regarding Hudler. Nobody thinks he is the second coming of Jesus, and we get that you hate them. We understood this a long time ago. The only person making a giant soap opera about Hudler is you, nobody else. And it is absolutely aggravating after the 500th time that you've done it. Your posts regarding him are dead weight, so there's no need to talk about him.

Anyways, the Wings are good enough to win the Cup.

How can we be good enough when we have the same team that got Ousted in the 2nd round?

Yes we have a great team. But I think Kenny should of waited until July 1st to add a nice piece to get better. Just saying this is the same team as last year only a year older. Go Wings and PLEASE prove me wrong and I will eat the crow for sure.

I guess I should hold my thoughts this time, Hopefully we stay healthy and then we would be WAY better than last years team.

This is what I mean,

This is off the Spectors Hockey site......

The Blackhawks aren't done dealing and are believed shopping winger Kris Versteeg...The Lightning might also be in the mix for Evgeni Nabokov's negotiating rights...the Ducks aren't sure what to do about Bobby Ryan...

Bobby Ryan a RFA Offer Hudler and a Pick and give him a long term deal worth 3.5 to 4 a year. Its only 2 more than Hudler's hit against the Cap.... Am I crazy?

Well, we are not the same team as last year, we got Hurled...er Hudler now! :ninja:

Speaking of Hurled, I guess the folks that gave you negs think that Hurled is better than Bobby Ryan, :hysterical: If we could somehow get Ryan here for Hurled, we'd be on the fast track for sure to the Cup! I don't get why so many people here think Hurled is the answer, he is not the missing piece, he may help a little, but if you're asking if the Wings would rather have Ryan or Hurled and a 1st, I think we ALL know what that answer would be, Bobby Ryan, hands down...

Abby as the 3rd line center..... :rotflmao:

The guy is a depth call-up kid at best.


#2005806 What is it why you're a fan of this team?

Posted by SDavis35 on 27 June 2010 - 08:29 PM

The organization is based on class and the character of not only the players, but the rest of the staff. They show respect to everyone, they treat each other and their players as family. They also never panic, no matter how dire the circumstance I always see the confidence in their eyes. That's the identity I fell in love with, so yea, if the character/identity of the Red Wings was changed to represent what's wrong with the NHL, I wouldn't care for them anymore, regardless of what superstar player they drafted.

Williams and Lebda are gone. That's good enough for me.
