Who?

 

Drew and Mike are a Detroit icon. They had the #1 morning show on WRIF for the better part of 21 years.

 

Is this a Wings Podcast?

 

Nope. But they frequently had Red Wings as guests and they do love their Detroit sports.. all of them, which includes Red Wings


In Topic: I Hate Jeff Blashill because ...

The team looked confused/lost and was mistake prone all season long. To me they looked ill prepared and/or his system was crap (probably a bit of both). This team imo is way better then Blashill was able yo get them to play. I think the team is younger with more talent then we have seen in a while yet the power play that was near league best last season sucked gigantic blue veiny beach balls. Face offs? what are those? Clearly NOT something that was practiced. How about CLEARING THE ZONE? Not practiced... What was practiced (and used a zillion times a game) was the lame zone entry of forwards skate puck to blue line then stop, pass back to defenseman and wait for him to carry it in.... SO STUPID!!! With all the speed this team has dump and chase for Pete's sake. Let those young speedy kids retrieve them pucks. This should have been the season Pav, Z and Kronwall down shifted to get them a break rather then expect they produce like they were 25 again.

 

Worst of all we lost out on the chance for some really good coaches for this failed experiment.

 

Can I start the bring back Dave Lewis thread now?


In Topic: Fixing this mess....

20 April 2016 - 06:20 AM

Didn't read a word of this post but I will throw my 2 cents in on how to fix this mess... Run Blashill and his boring hockey system clear out of town and BEG Babs to come back!

 

The Blashill experiment failed miserably. Don't believe me, watch the never ending team confusion and random line shuffling. Watch what has become a very boring and predictable team get owned over and over and over again.

 

That stupid new zone entry move they use repeatedly.... forward quickly carries the puck to the opponents blue line then all forwards stop, pass the puck back to the defense, then wait for the defense-man to carry the puck in. Guddammet!!!! This team is young... turn the youth loose!!!! Forget the dumb pass back BS. If you can't carry the puck in then dump and chase. Get it deep and have that youth chase and hound. We don't have the high powered super stars of decades ago... we need an old school smash-mouth system. Aggressive fore-check, mucking and grinding in the corners, hard shots on net and young kids crashing and fighting for pucks in front. Teach them to step in and finish a check... no more patty cakes! No need for killing people but checks that make the other team think.


In Topic: Tampa radio host's harsh words for DET fans/players

Well... Abdelkader did look like a chump. At least drop the gloves and give him a big hug or throw him on the ground rather than look at the ref, shrug your shoulders and look like a giant vageen. That and someone throwing beer at the player? Dick move. That is the definition of classless and it's also a sin to waste a $15 USD beer like that. If you did that in Canada your buddy standing next to you jersey's you, give you a beat down, makes you walk home and drinks any roadie's you left in the car.


In Topic: I hate Tyler Johnson

Tyler Johnson is what one or both of Nyquist and Tatar should be. I would gladly trade Nyquist + Tatar + their european cloak of invisibility for Tyler Johnson
