After being in the West all these years it's about time.

#2532444 Hockey News: Detroit has the easiest schedule

All I know is let's get this season started...



#2532270 Red Wings & the Media

Posted by Son of a Wing on 16 July 2014 - 03:05 PM


I'm confused about your position.  You think that there's nothing wrong with the media coverage of the Wings?


I don't care about the media "asking the tough questions".  I really don't.  I don't get off on the idea of seeing Holland squirm in his seat and hum and hah.


What does that accomplish?  People act like he's going to have an epiphany and all it takes is people confronting him about it and then he's going to see the light!


In today's era of social media they know the general consensus of their fan base's opinion. It doesn't take a beat reporter's "digging" to find that out.


(Much like what 55fan was saying) I rely on the media to give me facts.  I'd love more insider info but I also see how that can be counter-productive to the Wings doing business.


I read blogs and message boards (LGW) to hear other people opinions so I can better reflect on my own (which I've gained from watching as many games as I can).

I make about one post a year and I have to waste it on this garbage....
BOOO, these reporters are reporting on the news and not on whatever their opinion might be, BOOO.
This is being played like politics and a perceived lack of interest in bashing management is being equated to condoning said moves.
These are not the same things, everyone is taking mental shortcuts to the conclusion and bypassing the idea that media SHOULD report ONLY the facts.
People are so quick to forget that because it is sports, it is journalism too, adding opinion taints that.
Let bloggers speculate, speculation is what you people seem to desire, but is also the reason these speculators don't have credentials, because they only want those credentials to make their asinine opinions seem more valid when they are arguing in their own comments section.
Nobody knows what a good signing is until the season is over and we all have 20/20 hindsight, your intuition is not proof of any fact and your anger is not a catalyst for change. All I read when I see this garbage is a lot of spoiled fans who even after making the playoffs for 23 years in a row and winning more Stanley Cups than any team in a quarter century, think they could do better and sit around bitterly whining about a few depth moves being made.
Grow up Hockeytown!
29 other teams lose the cup or on said free agent, I can't wait for the article to come out saying player X didn't want to come to Detroit because of the entitled fans, well I guess I could buy a website, call myself a blogger, write the opinion myself, use anonymous sources and then ***** because no one takes me serious.


I need to be informed of "what" happened, not what to "think" about it. I can do that on my own.

#2532122 Alfie wants to play

I would sign Alfie all the way. He still has it! We need that right handed shot.

#2532159 Renney out, Granato in

Posted by Euro_Twins on 15 July 2014 - 01:04 PM

Man, Babcock sure does go through the assistant coaches eh?  Anyone know how many he's had during his time here?

It's not necessarily a bad thing, they all get promoted after working with him

#2532071 preds prospects Viktor Arvidsson and Kevin Fiala shootout moves

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 14 July 2014 - 06:24 PM

So what? I don't care...wrong board.

Trying to compare sizes with Jurco's moves? Shootout skills won't turn your franchise into a contender, I'm afraid :lol:

#2531964 Holland Wiki page edited

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 13 July 2014 - 07:43 PM

I just thought of something.  The reason Ken Holland wants all his players to be overripe and 1000% NHL ready is because in his 1st NHL game he got lit up for 7 goals.  It all makes sense now.

What about the wings?!?! I mean if you look closely there is a wheel to symbolize the motor city and a wings attached cause we're the wings

Yeesh.  I'm just glad you guys already used your two buyouts.


As far as HF goes, I'm pretty sure professional contracts don't preclude doing a bit of fancy stickwork for charity organizations, so there should be no problem with him putting in a little time with HF.  It's for the kids.


Someone has to class that place up a bit...Charity work is a good way to describe it.

He's a booster.  That means Matt has him under contract as a Wings fan.  He's OURS!

Normally you would be correct, but there's been a lot of talk in the front office about sending him to GR.  He's basically defected to HF  No trade.  We'll retain his rights.  *evil grin*

Congratulations Flashy! If my english were better I might be able to express how much I enjoy your GDTs. Because it isn't this post has to suffice. :P

If you can spell Nieuwendyk or Ciccarelli correctly, you can do anything in this world.
