#2639193 The Rise and Fall of Drew Miller

Posted by Mckinley25 on 24 November 2015 - 04:47 PM

Again, are there other GMs who neither trade prospects nor waive people?

Didn't Stan Bowman waive Brian Bickell AND trade away prospects this off season? I bet that guy sucks as a GM.

Information from outside the Red Wings bubble is not welcome. With Janmark this team is a contender.

Get a haircut kid!



Maybe that's what Kapanen said to set him off.

#2632814 Where Are The W-L Results?

Posted by rick zombo on 24 October 2015 - 12:21 PM

If you're looking for W-L results, any hockey website should have them. Like nhl.com or tsn for example. Many of these sites also include breakdowns of OT loses, SO loses, etc. You should be able to find playoff records there too.

I agree. I always use stubhub to buy wings tickets, however the tickets I bought today for $450 are going for $900 on stubhub and that's not even with the alumni game.

#2630654 Cleary NOT reporting to Grand Rapids

Posted by Mckinley25 on 14 October 2015 - 07:36 AM

But didn't Maltby try didn't make it and retired into whatever position he has now with the Wings? Vs Danny who is making a semifuss over things.
I respect what Danny did to resurrect his career and playing on knees that finally gave out on him. But sometimes you have to look in the mirror and say I want to do X soooo bad but I can't anymore as my body just won't do it.

How is Danny making a fuss? This is literally the exact same thing that happened with Maltby, he signed a two way contract, got placed on waivers and decided not to play for Grand Rapids. What is the problem?

#2630281 Steven "Stammer" Stamkos hits 500 points in 495gp

Posted by rick zombo on 13 October 2015 - 12:06 PM


Melrose didn't screw anything up.  The Lightning fired him after like a dozen games.  


But the psychological damage he inflicted on Stamkos took him at least 150 games to get over.

#2629016 10/9 GDT : @ Red Wings 4, Toronto Maple Leafs 0

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 October 2015 - 09:01 AM

Stop and think back for a moment guys, think back over at least the last 10-15 years.  Outside of the 01-02 season (which was marred at the beginning by the 9/11 attacks that took some of the "fun" out of the season openener,) When was the last time you have been more excited and giddy or even seen so much interest and hype for the opening night of a Red Wings season? We've had coaching changes, we've had rookies debut, we've had UFA's making their debut, but just reflect on all that is going on today, and that is exactly it, ALL OF THAT is going on right now! Today! Not only a new coach, but outside of Granato, a new coaching staff and philosophy, not only is a rookie debuting, but a 19 year old local kid who just got drafted 16 months ago, PLUS the rest of our young players like Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Pulkkinen! We're excited for a new life for Smith and Kindl, Howard has regained his pre-injury play, Mrazek is here to stay, no longer do we have an average back-up that may see some spot play once in a while.we, once again, have a legit 1a and 1aa goalie tandem.  We have the UFA right handed  offensive d-man that Holland has coveted for years and years. We have no less than 8 kids in GR (if not more) who can be called up and step right into the NHL if needed and contribute.  We FINALLY have a team where the best players will play and not lose out to the veteran just because of seniority.  There is a lot of buzz in Hockeytown this season opener, take a big inhale of it and breathe it all in, this, my friends, is the beginning of our new generation of a Red Wings super team.  We witnessed Yzerman, Fedorov, Lidstrom, Kozlov, etc... all grow together as a team and it seems we have a core today that if kept together, can stay together (just like our 90's team) for a long, long time.  This area has not been this excited in forever...


Take it all in my friends! Let's Go Wings!

#2628279 Roster Moves by the Wings

Posted by Zetts on 04 October 2015 - 05:44 PM

I can already anticipate the meltdown if Cleary stays and Larkin goes down. 


Just to prepare people, if that happens, it is NOT because Cleary "took" Larkin's roster spot.  It's because they didn't think Larkin was ready for a top 3 line role and didn't want him playing 10 minutes on the fourth line and/or being the 13/14 forward.  Cleary, on the other hand, is perfectly-suited to that role.  The two of them are not in competition for the same roster spot.

#2626030 Islanders turn cold blooded on top prospect

If it was me I would've shown up at the Red Wings training camp because f*** the Islanders.

#2625355 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by krsmith17 on 13 September 2015 - 08:38 PM

I don't think by an stretch that McCarty's number should be out of circulation, but to call him a "druggie idiot" is ignorant as f***... He was a fan favorite and a huge part of all those Cup wins. I personally love(d) McCarty, he was definitely one of my favorite Wings of the 90's. Drug addiction or not, he deserves the respect of the fans of Detroit.
