But in our hearts, he was in for all 11 ;)

People seriously over valuing prospects, as usual

I don't see why he was suspended. So he made a bunch of Russian ******* turtle and run....

KHL should've just shipped him off to North America as punishment. The NHL isn't the rough and tumble league it once was, but I can easily name you 50 NHLers off the top of my head who would kick the s*** out of this guy.

No lol. There's definitely players in the system that can do what Helm does. It's just that they don't get the opportunity and Blashill is too afraid to give them the chance. AA > Helm mark it. He's already a better producer than Helm is and played far less games and VERY limited ice time. He kills penalties (had a nice short handed goal), he's fast, has hands, plays with lesser linemates. Give AA the chance and he would probably do better than Helm. Helm is what? 29 years old? and still producing at a low rate while AA is 22 and already his production rate has surpassed Helm.

Have we had any  good fighters since Downey? I don't consider Abdelkader a good one. Maybe for today's standards he might be decent. 

May and Tootoo.

 

Even by today's standards, Abdelkader isn't anything special. Not terrible, but not intimidating at all. 

 

Ott has never been a good fighter, but his career total of 100 NHL fighting majors tells you he doesn't mind doing it.

Ott was never a guy who would "stop" anything.  Aside from the fact that fighting doesn't deter anything ever, even IF it did, I sincerely doubt the deterrent value of a 190 lb, loudmouth who lost most of his career fights. 

 

I disagree and besides fighting makes great entertainment.  You never see anyone at a hockey game when a fight breaks out just sitting and yawning do you?

Ott has never been a good fighter.  He'd have trouble with Abdelkader.  

And he did, with a lot of hugging...

 

Ott was never a tough guy. He routinely got his ass kicked by guys who could actually fight. He was an antagonist and, in his prime, a good checker. Not sure what he brings to Detroit at this stage of his career.

Pre Steve Ott


Yeah, pretty much same "toughness"... this is like us playing against the Habs and Plekanec is enforcing the Wings

It's people like this guy who give hockey and hockey fights a bad name. Damir Ryspayev of the KHL. Move info on what will happen to this guy soon.

Was that Detroit Red Wings out there?

I haven't been in the offseason topic for awhile, apologizes. Fighting in hockey is just not needed anymore.

...but it has to be consensual


did anyone see the two KHL coaches fight?

#2684580 Fox Sports DET to stream DRW games online

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 09 August 2016 - 02:20 AM

I'm still amazed at the amount of people who are out of the local area of their favorite team and refuse/are unaware of streaming games online. It takes all of 12 seconds to find a stream for games now. I live in Seattle and haven't had a problem watching a Wing's game since I moved here 18 months ago.

yeah it's ok to find an illegal stream that looks like you are trying to watch the game through a potato. Real fun.....=)




#2684516 AA

Posted by DickieDunn on 07 August 2016 - 10:00 AM

The best thing for the team long term is having AA and Mantha playing every night. The problem is, management is focused solely on The Streak and overloaded the team with mediocre vets.

#2684293 Red Wings All-Bust Roster

Posted by chaps80 on 31 July 2016 - 09:33 PM

Anyone having Joseph on the list LOL. And Conklin did pretty well in Detroit as Osgood's backup in '09. Some forget that Osgood had a very up and down regular season probly because once the playoffs started he "flipped the switch" and had a Smythe worthy run. Conklin saved the team during the regulars.

IP reroute perhaps?

 

I mean there are options, such as proxies and whatnot.  They just aren't kosher.  But more to the point, I think that here in 2016 convenient and legal options for folks to watch games regardless of whether they're in Texas, Australia, or Michigan should be available and independent of a cable or satellite subscription.
