#2023979 Red Wings Shootout lineup

Posted by titanium2 on 08 August 2010 - 03:10 PM

What about Lilja? I think it's time he tried out his war cry move where the goalie just dives away from the net in fear, "THIS... IS... DETROIT!!!!!!!!!"


#2024192 Cheli is back!

I love how he is keeping it real

"What he was also saying is that he likes what the Red Wing are bringing into 2010-11, including the goaltending, although he admitted he'd "like to see some better work from Jimmy Howard in the playoffs."

Too true.

as a Ducks fan, the guy is an ok stay at home d-man. his biggest flaw is he is almost a lock to get a hooking or slashing penalty in the last 5 minutes of the game if you have him out on the ice.. for some reason his brain only works for 50-55 minutes and after that he just makes dumb plays. he is tough as nails and a mean SOB on the ice, she he will give you a bit of on edge. I know Detroit didnt sign him to be a minutes eater and playing on the top 2 pairings, so you guys should be fine. anyways that is my imput after watching him here in anaheim during his tenure here

Statement from Kenny himself:

August 9, Detroit Free Press: “We were looking at the market, exploring the market for one more veteran defenseman,” general manager Ken Holland said. “Given our cap situation, we didn’t have a lot of money to commit. We waited until the middle of August and over the last week, we contacted Ruslan’s agent. Mike Babcock has had a mumber of conversations with Ruslan. Ruslan really enjoyed his time with Mike. Mike was a real big part of Ruslan’s decision to come to Detroit.”

Lidstrom - Rafalski

Kronwall - Stuart

Ericsson - Salei

And depending on how good Kindl looks in practice he would get the nod if someone gets injured... then Janik/Smith on the 2nd injury depending on whom played the greatest in Grand Rapids?

How much left to sign abdelkader for now? or do they have to make a trade/waive first?


#2024371 Wings sign Ruslan Salei

Posted by mindfly on 09 August 2010 - 12:47 PM

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Stuart
Ericsson-Salei/Kindl/Janik/Smith

(Good bye Meechy)
(Ericsson has the 5th spot locked up right? according to kenny etc?)

Salei is probably the guy for the 6th but he will probably get injured and then Kindl/Janik/ or maybe even Smith take his spot.

Anyone know what he must achieve in order to max out that bonus? 50games+ and... ?


#2024265 #24 should be retired? But to who?

Posted by Nev on 09 August 2010 - 11:22 AM

Neither.

But you know what, Probert has had his retirement moment at the Joe - when #19 got retired. The response from the fans then was of far more value to him then, than retiring his number is now.

I approve of this signing, a slight improvement of lilja, the guy hasn't won yet, and the contract is cheap.
