#2491807 3/6 GDT: Avs 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) Sorry Nick.

So excited for the ceremony. What a privilege it was to watch Nick Lidstrom play his entire career in Detroit. We witnessed perfection, in the most subtle of fashions.

Thanks for the memories #5!

Anyone know what time the ceremony starts?


6:30

Gonna be a bittersweet day. Still wish Nick was around, but more importantly he gets the ultimate honor that is so well-deserved.


#2491117 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

I wonder what number he'll wear.

 

Zero to represent how many people like this trade. 

 

EDIT: On a serious note, Legwand is wearing the vacated #17 of Patrick Eaves.

The Red Wings got the better end of this trade.

 

Welcome to the boards, Mr. Holland.  :bye1:

Horrendous. Kenny has outdone the Kyle Quincey debacle somehow. I said it in numerous threads leading up to the deadline, but for once kicking tires and standing pat would have been prudent. Realistically, the Red Wings were at best going to sneak into the playoffs once Z was declared out for the regular season. Then you throw in Pav being gone now, Weiss having a setback and Helm injured again. You just don't overcome those losses and even if you do, is this group a real contender anyways? 

 

Nothing against Legwand, but what happened to no rentals? If Holland was looking for 'hockey deals' and willing to overpay with prospects and picks, then he should have actually acquired an impact player like Kesler or Ehrhoff. Legwand is an upgrade over Andersson logging first line minutes, but what's the goal here? Either embrace trying to improve fully or stick with what you have and play the season out. 

 

I just don't understand what Holland's intended direction is for the organization since Nick retired. The Red Wings are stuck in transitional years. Being mediocre is the worst spot to be, especially when it appears your philosophy is to rely more on drafting well. 

 

Panic move and went against everything Holland preached leading up to the deadline. He has been absolutely atrocious since Nick left with personnel decisions.

I don't think banking on health is wise, especially with Helm. Weiss had a setback, Pav isn't improving, Z already gone. That's more than enough to pursue an impact forward if Holland decides to buy.

The Mike Weaver for a 5th and the Hemsky for a 3rd and 5th could have made this team MUCH better than we are now... Holland is smooching the pooch today. 

 

Much? I think that's an overstatement for a soft, inconsistent winger and third pairing d-man. Wings need impact, not bodies.

Kenny hasn't made a worthwhile trade in six years since he acquired Stuart. I'm not banking on today changing the trend. 




#2489726 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 04 March 2014 - 09:20 PM

After tonight, time to make a decision. Either sell our UFAs, or acquire some help. Because guys are dropping like flies, and our depth is seriously lacking.


Kick tires, say they will be active in free agency this summer, won't "overpay" for impact players. Go into next season hoping for health. The Holland cycle of making moves.

imagine if mule played like that every game?!?


I've been on Mule's case before, but he pretty much has the entire season.

Franzen's shot is ridiculous. Love when he is assertive with the puck.

Keep this winning streak going. Bad enough I live here in NJ but dealing with these annoying fans is worse. Let's give them a beat down!


Must be a real annoying group of three.

Posted by GoWings1905 on 01 March 2014 - 12:37 AM

Man, I just don't see the need for Kesler at all. Especially with Weiss coming back, the Red Wings are deep at forward. I'm really opposed to giving up Nyquist, Tatar or Jurco in a deal.

This could maybe make sense as both teams get guys on expiring contracts. Maybe Quincey and a 3rd or 2nd for macdonald


I'm no Kyle Quincey fan, but that seems like overpayment. I think, best case scenario, MacDonald is a marginal upgrade to Quincey and I'm not even convinced of that. If the Wings are going to make a deal for a d-man and give up picks/assets, it should be for a player that solidifies the second pairing.


#2487689 2/27 GDT : Red Wings 6 at Senators 1, Franzen w/Hat Trick

Posted by GoWings1905 on 27 February 2014 - 10:16 PM

Good win! Two goals against in two games is the most important thing for me. Hopefully Weiss can come back strong because this offense has nice firepower and depth, even missing Z.
