#2376465 Dreger: Wings 'very interested' in Bouwmeester *merged*

Posted by GoWings1905 on 30 March 2013 - 02:39 PM

 
Haven't we had mobility for 3 straight years?
 
What's your confidence that we won't end up with cap space next year anyways? The recent track record is trending the opposite.


Exactly. The free agent class is very weak, especially on defense. Plus there's always the threat that the players you do target don't sign with Detroit. Bouwmeester doesn't hamstring the club financially if there's nothing else available to spend the money on.

Bouwmeester has always been reserved. I think the lack of emotion being used against him is overblown. You don't play 25 minutes per night in the NHL for years without having urgency. Nick Lidstrom avoided contact too. That's just how Bouwmeester plays the game. He's a reliable, puck-moving d-man on a bad contract. I think he's worth the risk for the right price.

5-2 on the two combined road trips is pretty damn good. Started and ended poorly, but otherwise they came out strong during the roughest portion of the schedule.

Expecting a much more entertaining game on Sunday.

We desperately need a goal-scoring winger.

Z and Pav just have nothing to work with. Filppula and Franzen really need to step it up.

They always made the playoffs before he got there.

 

Calgary had lost in the first round four consecutive seasons before Bouwmeester's arrival. The inability to retool was in place already. It just continued on in Bouwmeester's time there since. I don't know how Bouwmeester is supposed to control poor management decisions.

I don't think the connection between Bouwmeester and his teams missing the playoffs is really fair at all. He has played for Florida and a Calgary run franchise that has no plan besides to linger in mediocrity.

You have to take other team's fan boards into account. Fans are emotional and go with the good/bad at the moment of their respective team.

 

For example, casual readers from other sites would likely assume we hate everyone on the team besides Datsyuk, Z (most of the time) and Howard (some of the time). Obviously that isn't the case, but I don't know how much stock you can put into reactionary opinions about a player such as Murray.

Wow getzlaf and perry showing emotion. I wish we had guys that showed half of that.


I will take Z and Datsyuk losing with dignity any day over those two whiners.

Haha, the Ducks best players are such whiners. I can't stand Getzlaf and Perry. They can never just lose a game without throwing a fit.

It just feels like that tying goal is coming, or at minimum a penalty soon.

These two points would be huge playing again tomorrow night.

Healthy scratch for Phoenix.....Dan Cleary


He has a goal tonight and that "penalty" was merely one soft call for another.


#2372960 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

Posted by GoWings1905 on 24 March 2013 - 02:11 PM

We have all seen Ian White play.

There's definitely a spot open for Dekeyser.

If the glass was the net, they would have a good 30 goals.

Don't have the skill anymore to compensate for poor defensive coverage and atrocious special teams play. I think the Red Wings have done some good things through two periods, but far too many mistakes and some awful luck with the officiating.

Our top-six needs a ton of help and I don't mean Bertuzzi and/or Samuelsson coming back.

Defensive breakdowns all over the place like in Calgary. The Wild haven't controlled play at all and the Red Wings are making it easy for them.
