#2685944 Shawn Horcoff to join Red Wings in player development role

Posted by GoalieManPat on 16 September 2016 - 06:30 PM

Hes lived in the area during the offseason forever. Pretty sure his wife is from Michigan and that and him playing at MSU kept him around. The more good hockey minds in the organization the better. He was never a star but he put up some pretty respectable numbers in the mid to late 00's so he knows the game.

Horcoff has lived in Detroit forever and trains in Detroit before the season every year. Surprised he got a role with the Wings, but I guess he was tigher with Kenny than I thought. Him and Dano are buddies too, hopefully this will make Dano finally realize its time to give up with the playing career.

#2685131 Jurco injured

Posted by cnot19 on 27 August 2016 - 01:17 PM

Poor jurco...odds are he'll never Crack our lineup 100% after this latest setback. The ship may have sailed on him and Pulk.

Yea definitely awful timing and luck for jurco, I'd hate to see us lose or give up on him. Pulk I could really do without, he's too easy to move off the puck

Good for him, hope he gets a decent shot.

The writing was on the wall with McCollum. He had some decent years in Grand Rapids, but there was never going to be an opportunity for him in Detroit. With Mrazek looking like he will be the guy for the foreseeable future, Coreau looking like he could become a solid NHL backup, the addition of Pasquale, as well as Paterson looking to battle for a spot in Grand Rapids, and the glut of other guys in the system... Glad to see McCollum get a shot elsewhere, and I hope they sign him to a contract.

I was under the impression he was under contract for one more season but I probably just wasn't paying enough attention


Good for him, he has potential to be a good backup. He stepped up this season but it seems like Coreau stepped up even more.

I bet all the Holland haters will still figure out a way to give Bowman the credit for this

#2677640 Bad News... Dave Strader diagnosed with cancer

Posted by Jedi on 14 June 2016 - 09:29 AM

In an industry that is rampant with homers (Olcyskcysztvcyk), idiots, and people only trying to make a name for themselves, Strader is one of the few that has risen above it.


Best wishes to him on a full and speedy recovery.

To heck with LCA. We should all just start to refer to it as "The Gordie" or "The Howe" from here on out.

I already named it that in my head... I will be attending games at The Gordie, for sure.   It would be awesome if the corporation would step up and re-name the arena in Mr. Hockey's honor.

#2676748 Dustin Brown losing captaincy

Posted by kliq on 29 May 2016 - 12:23 AM

The problem is that in the "old days" if a team wasnt happy with their captain, they could just trade him and never have to worry about this even being an issue. There always seemed to be a team willing to bite on a player like Brown. Now in the cap era, teams just wont take that chance as he is not worth the cap hit.


My first reaction was that this was a classless move by the Kings, but I have changed my mind as I think I was wrong. You have to do what is best for the team overall, and if you feel the guy is not the person to lead your team, you can't just leave things be for 6 more years.

#2676616 Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

Posted by F.Michael on 26 May 2016 - 07:17 PM


UPDATE: The #RedWings have acquired prospect Dylan Sadowy from San Jose for a third-round draft pick in 2017.



I watched him his entire OHL career here in Saginaw (until he was traded half way through the season last year, which is typical in the OHL), and Wings fans should be excited. I'd argue he's a little tougher version of Abdelkader with a better scoring touch. He was always the first one to jump in & defend his teammates. Was a good captain here. Great pick-up!

The idea of our beloved Detroit Red Wings adding some players who play with an edge makes my head woozy with delight.

Right. Cause we've NEVER had that type of player on the wings

Years ago we did, but in the last several years - not so much.

Posted by kickazz on 26 May 2016 - 06:27 PM

That means we will probably never see him in a wings lineup

We will as long as he can do other things besides that. And from what I'm seeing and hearing he can. Blashill is all about having players who can defend their teammates. Much moreso than Babcock was.

I get the feeling he was somebody the brass had their eyes on to draft in the 4th round but San Jose beat them to it.




Scores? Hits? Plays aggressively instead of getting swatted off the puck? 


I like it!

This quote below that video is great:




My buddy(a Sharks fan) just told me about this and added: "Anytime you make a trade with the Wings for a prospect, you know you lost that trade." Im still laughing.
