#2662858 3/29 GDT - Red Wings at Canadiens - 7:30 PM EST

Posted by Jacksoni on 29 March 2016 - 02:39 PM

It's so close I can smell it.

Just not sure what it is...

It could be roses or it could be rotten. Depending on when the Wings start playing. If they do tonight. Back to back games haven't been kind. And they got a few left to play. They really need some help from other teams. A little breathing room would be nice.

GO WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I agree, feel the same. Any predictions for tonight?

#2493023 UFA/RFA Re-Signing, What Does Everyone Get?

Posted by number9 on 07 March 2014 - 11:31 PM

IMO this offseason is about re-signing the right contracts and adding a D-man. Wondering what everyone thinks about our expiring contracts and what they will get. I think Alfredsson (retirement) Bertuzzi (retirement) and Cleary (sucks) will be gone, but I listed them anyway in case they come back.

Player - CapHit - Age
Legwand (4.5) (33)
Alfredsson (3.5) (41)
Bertuzzi (2.075) (39)
Cleary (1.75) (35)
Sheahan (785) (22)
Tatar (630) (23)
Glendening (575) (24)
Quincey (3.775) (28)
DeKeyser (925) (24)
Gustavsson (1.5) (29)

Didn't list contracts that likely won't go up or down by much, aka the Almqvists of the world.

#2490625 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

by the way ferraro said "the prospect they cant find is sleeping, he'll be up in three minutes" sounds alot like he knows something.... like its his son landon 

#2490548 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by dat's sick on 05 March 2014 - 03:25 PM

Gonna be another Weiss, just wait. 

Weiss isn't even playing which is why we need Legwand. 



I'm ASSUMING this means at least one of Helm or Datsyuk will be out a long time. Maybe both. 


It's a rental, he's a decent player. It's a good trade as long as we didn't have to give up a 1st or a decent prospect. We almost 100% needed to pick up help on center if we're gonna be without Datsyuk and Helm. And IF by some miracle we make the playoffs, Legwand could help us there too. 

#2482606 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 08 February 2014 - 06:27 PM

This team needs skill on the blue line

Or more shutdown D that aren't named Ericsson or Lashoff.  Matt Greene or Mark Stuart are what our blue line needs.  The skill will come with Ouellet and Sproul in the next couple years.  Our blue line needs less Quincey and Kindl.

Glendening for sure. Although both are just slightly better versions of emmerton

#2481305 Vets over the Kids?, not any more eh Babs.

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 04 February 2014 - 08:18 PM

Just for a bit of fun I thought about the scenario that, what if the kids had started from the start of the season instead of the current 4 vets that are out of the lineup. Due to being injured,scratched or demoted. So without further ado here are the results of my findings, which can be classed in anyway you want to judge them.

 I have taken the current stats of Bert, Dan, Sammy and Stephen and compared their projected totals for 56 games against those of Gus,Riley and the 2 Tom's projected outputs.


At their present scoring rate after 56 games the combined vets have a total of 37 points, 18+19 . This moment in time they have played a total of 148 games for 26 points with a -35 rating. Which would be -50 over the combined 224 games. Broken down, Bertuzzi 8+6 -20, Cleary 4+5 -12, Weiss 4+4 -9 and Samuelsson 2+4 -9. Not good eh?


At the other end of the age scale we get a more happier outlook as fans.With the projected combined total of 126pts, 58+68. At present they have played a combined 111 games for 63 points with a +12 rating. This would be projected to be a +22 rating for the combined 224 games. The kids personal stats project as Nyqvist 24+18 +9, Tatar 16+13 +6, Sheahan 11+24 +7 and Jurco 7+13 even rating. This looks alot better overall for the team in general, i know these are hypothetical but which ever way you look at it all, the stats are more positive for the kids.

I know most of the spotlight has fallen on Gus and Tats but i think Riley and Tomas have done outstanding with Riley surprising me the most. Jurco will become a top top player and the thought of him and Mantha on the same line could be a very dangerous line for years to come.


Full steam ahead guys, and lets hope a couple of our D prospects can have the same sort of impact next year.

#2478795 Is it 1970 again?

Posted by Guest on 29 January 2014 - 05:32 PM

I honestly think its more everyone on this board is bi polar. When we win we are the best, when we loose we Are the dead wings. Tbh some of you redwings fans are kinda embracing. (To Trade Datsyuk is an all time low)

I'm kinda ashamed to even come on here, read, post and to call you guys hockey fans.

#2478102 1/28 GDT: Red Wings 0 @ Flyers 5

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 28 January 2014 - 12:44 PM

No Datsyuk, no Zetterberg, no Franzen, maybe no Howard. I feel like someone needs to be fired.

Howard's backing up gus tonight, I read that jimmy expects to start Friday.

I kinda think we should throw Franzen on ltir, then call up Callahan....
But i dunno the severity of z, or Franzen, or when dats will be back, so it may be pointless.
But with the success our kids have had, is rather try another one that we need to figure out the future of playing than cleary.

#2456765 The Dan Cleary Hate Zone

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 22 November 2013 - 05:10 PM

Dan Cleary is 2nd on my list of disposable players. At least he occasionally provides a net-front presence. But if by some miracle Sammy is moved/dropped, Cleary is next in my sights to clear up some room for the kids. He floats, is injury prone, and worst of all is a drain on the cap. I could handle the first 2 at $1mil per year, but this is a little sad.


Still a better option than Sammy though, what has he done this season? I would trade them both for minor leaguers and bring Tootoo/Eaves up in a minute.

I like Cleary but its time to move on.

#2416175 Darren Helm - Career in Question?

Posted by rick zombo on 30 May 2013 - 01:02 PM

Babcock also had this to say about Filpulla's injury:


"You guys watched the video, you decide," Babcock said. "He's hurt. He'll be ready for camp."


So I guess Filpulla's going to re-sign?


OR, Babs was just talking, much like the Helm quote.


Basically, I woudn't put too much stalk in how the coach phrased his responses. Know what I mean?

#2412033 WCSF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 4, (DET leads series 3-2)

Posted by Firehawk on 25 May 2013 - 10:10 PM

We will win game 6 guys.  Just relax.  Chicago was too good to go down in 5.  Simple as that.  I am amazed we won game 4 honestly.  I kept telling people at work all day on game 4 day that it would be 'too good to be true' to go up 3-1 in the series.  But we did.  Now Chicago has the daunting taks of coming to a college like atmosphere in Detroit again.  We are winning this in 6!

#2393139 WCQF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings 1, at Ducks 3. (Anaheim leads, 1-0)

Posted by NorwegianWing on 01 May 2013 - 12:23 AM

The Wings looked timid in transition from their own zone. Too many giveaways allowing The Ducks rushing opportunities. Better team won tonight, let's make sure the same happens on thursday with the Wings being the better team. Road PK has been a problem all year, and needs to be better. Andersson should get an earful for giving Selanne the diving opportunity, and Kindl needs to be more composed on the puck. The perils of having a young, inexperienced team, I guess.


It's 7.20 AM and I'm tired, but GO WINGS.
