#2621534 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by GoWings1905 on 24 July 2015 - 07:20 PM


Pleiness actually said the same thing yesterday. Some times they get it wrong, Holland loves smoke and mirrors. Just glad everyone is under contract now.


It doesn't help everyone in the Wings media is a lap dog for the organization. When they claim someone is "far apart" on a deal, obviously that reflects more poorly on the player than Holland. 

#2621532 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

I'm still a huge Jurco supporter. I think he has a ton of upside despite a pretty mediocre looking second season. The Red Wings botched his development last season -- he either needed to play big minutes in Grand Rapids another year or actually be utilized properly in Detroit. Nobody is going to do s*** offensively with Drew Miller and Luke Glendening. 


Hoping for a nice rebound from Jurco and ideally spending more time with Sheahan as his center going forward. 

#2621238 Pulkkinen re-signs.... 1 year deal

Posted by GoWings1905 on 22 July 2015 - 08:05 PM

Yes... Join the haters. We have cake.

Yup, I hate a player that wears the uniform of my favorite team. That was clearly what I was getting at in my post. God forbid anyone has a dissenting opinion about a player on a discussion board.

#2620012 Gustav Nyquist signed 4-Year Deal $4.75 mill AAV

Posted by GoWings1905 on 10 July 2015 - 04:43 PM

Who cares if Andersson, Ferraro and Callahan are lost? Almost everyone was begging Andersson to leave anyways, Ferraro is a spare part and Callahan has never played a second in the NHL and would probably clear waivers regardless. Getting Nyquist signed to a reasonable contract is far more important.

This summer has been really well done by Holland. Given the lack of quality talent available in free agency, he still made the Red Wings much better for next season without having to sacrifice pieces of the future in the process. I don't think Holland could have done much better.

#2618951 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by GoWings1905 on 03 July 2015 - 10:14 PM

Q was actually very solid last season. He's easily the most physical of the Wings d-men. Neither Q nor E provides anything offensively, but Quincey was far less turnover prone than Ericsson last season.

I like Marchenko, but he isn't better than Quincey right now and he might never be. Jensen is a complete unknown still. I want to give both Smith and Kindl a shot under Blashill, so I'm fine with sending everyone else for another year or at least to start in Grand Rapids.

#2617054 Free agents this off season

Posted by GoWings1905 on 27 June 2015 - 06:27 PM

The Wings will pursue Green hard, get outbid again by someone else in free agency (which is fine in this case) and then just continue to fill the roster internally. 


I really don't expect much of anything come July 1st. With Blashill and the wave of prospects coming, I'm OK with that. 

#2614701 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

You think I enjoy watching Chicago win again? NOPE.

I think it was a wise decision you answered that question yourself. There's room for doubt.

wheres chicagooverated? lol thought he said winner of anaheim-chicago would lose anyways? LOOOOOOOOOOOL
GG Hawks.

I believe you might be looking for the Blackhawks fan forum. Established in 2010.

Besides the Kings two cups, watching the champion since 2009 has been brutal. Crosby on the Wings home ice, the Blackhawks three times and the d-bag Bruins.

Basically what I'm saying is, I like it a lot more when the Red Wings are doing the winning.

#2614286 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by GoWings1905 on 13 June 2015 - 10:37 PM

For an organization rapidly embracing a full youth movement, there doesn't seem to be much logic behind giving up Mantha and/or a first round pick. I personally don't buy it and hope Holland stays the course at this point. If drafting and developing is your thing, then you don't sacrifice that for Dion Phaneuf. Maybe three years ago with a younger Pav and Z, but not anymore. 

#2613724 Jeff Blashill named 27th head coach in Red Wings history

Posted by GoWings1905 on 09 June 2015 - 04:36 PM

How is it not? He has zero prior NHL head coaching experience

So did Mike Babcock at one time. Every coaching hire is a gamble really. What veteran coach available would have been a sure thing and made more sense than Blashill?

#2613422 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Posted by GoWings1905 on 07 June 2015 - 12:59 PM


Honestly, probably Andersson. Which I cant say I really bothers me.


Agreed. Another expendable player, just like Nestrasil was. The whole point is that Cleary on the team isn't going to prevent better players from actually getting into the games. Somebody has to be your 14th forward -- better someone like Cleary than a prospect who could be playing every night in Grand Rapids. 

#2612521 WCF : (3) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Q > Babcock ... he's going to get one big raise when his contract is up.  


I'm not a huge Babs fan, but I don't think there is a huge gap between the two -- if any. Q has had the best roster in hockey basically every year since the Wings in 2009. How hard is it to mess up four really solid lines and putting Keith/Seabrook out there for half of the game? I'm not saying Q is a bad coach, but there are plenty of coaches that would kill for his situation.

Pray the Ducks win tomorrow because the Blackhawks will slaughter the Lightning.

Glad Eddie got to call the loss.
