#2383043 Official: Howard signs 6-year, $31.8m contract extension

Try reading The Axes responses out loud and yelling when the caps lock comes on. It's fun.

#2378797 An interesting point about our apparent deadline strategy

Posted by dats13owns on 02 April 2013 - 03:55 PM

Is there any good way to go about this? How close are the Wings right now to being contenders? If they do make a big splash at the deadline, is it going to be big enough for them to have a chance against Chicago, Pittsburgh or Boston in the playoffs? I love the excitement of a trade as much as the next person, but if there is nothing out there that is going to take you to the next level then why force something just to do so? This is a deep draft coming up, so no one is going to want to part with picks either. The Wings do have a bunch of bad contracts on their hands right now, so why would anyone want to take them on? No one wants to give up any decent prospects to get anything and if they do, especially for a rental, it's going to be meltdown city on here. There is no winning here. I'm not in love with the 2012 offseason, but Holland tried... bringing Sammy back was absolutely unnecessary and the Coca sign was high risk/low reward and that's what it ended up being, and Monster has been just bad... but Brunner and Tootoo have both been great for the Wings.


Everyone is on Bert and Sammy's asses, but why is everyone okay with Helm constantly being injured? He's not even the age of these guys. Maybe they should try to move Helm.


I'm not trying to be a contrarian here, but people complain just to complain. I don't think there is enough the Wings can do to become legit contenders, so if they can't find a deal... let them go into the offseason and see when they can do there. It's a short season, few teams are out of it at this point so it's not like everyone is going to be shopping everyone like they would in a full season.


My hopes are that the Wings make it to the playoffs for a 22nd straight year and give me extra Wings hockey to watch into hopefully the second round.

Gustavsson is horrible.

Hasek is still looking for work!

#2369813 Trade Kronwall?

Posted by dats13owns on 15 March 2013 - 10:51 PM

Since he just scored does that mean he should get a 10 year extension?

#2366438 Favorite thing about the Wings this season

The fact that there is a season.
Big Rigs goal with 4 seconds left against the Kings.
Hockey's best highlight reel - Datsyuk

At least Kronner is otherwise a good defenseman.  Ericsson contributes little and takes the worst penalties.
But really, Kronner, c'mon....

Ericsson has actually been solid this season and down the stretch last year.

That delay of game call is THE worst penalty in hockey. So subjective, yet no room to breathe.

#2361356 Blackhawks set new point streak record

Posted by dats13owns on 26 February 2013 - 12:17 AM

The Wings and Hawks play on Sunday. I wouldn't complain if their streak extended into this game and the Wings hand them their first loss on national TV.

Wishful thinking; I'm sure Columbus will beat them this week...

There it is!
Edzo with the subtle interference.  He managed to hold out for so long...

Now he brought it to the leagues attention. The Wings are screwed now that they can't constantly get away with subtly interfering. What a handjob.

Nah...we can't use a player like Tootoo, he will bring nothing to this team.....
There is still room on the train guys, hop aboard!

I hated him in Nashville. After about ten minutes of processing the signing I loved it and knew he would be a fan favorite. Aside from dropping the gloves, the dude straight hustles and gives his all every single shift. He brings a lot of energy and gets the crowd into it. More than anything, the dude was estatic about being a Wing from day one. It says a lot coming from a team who has had little brother syndrome throughout their whole existence.

#2348021 Things that are better than the Wings special teams.

Hey, if you're entitled to start a thread about the Wings special teams when there's already a very fresh one discussing the PK, then surely I'm entitled to comment in this thread. No? I don't really care though. Moving on.....

Of course... Because no one on this board is ever allowed to have any fun. Though there was nothing stated in initial post on this thread about discussing it, rather just seeing what kind of sarcastic remarks someone can come up with.

But instead, we'll just sit here and *****, complain, throw people under the bus, play head coach and GM, play talent evaluator/scout and bully people around for not sharing the same opinion as us.

Thanks for being the bigger man and moving on. No wonder no one comes around here anymore.

I'm going to go with:

3. Redundant threads.

4. Redundant Fun Police call outs.

If you don't like it, don't comment. I was taught that kind of stuff when I was like four years old, way before the Internets.

Man, I want to see Brunner bury one. He's already due.
