#2532974 Confused on the direction of this team going forward

Posted by DeGraa55 on 24 July 2014 - 09:16 PM

Something I've been thinking about:
Let's say we do, in fact, win the Cup within the next three or four years (i.e. while we still have Datsyuk). What does that roster look like, realistically?

Kind of hard to do. This roster won't win a cup. It'll involve FA and/or trades. But people need to be added.

I'm betting most Wings fans could never envision Chelios playing for the Wings either.

Going to work when you're grieving is no doubt difficult.  But that's not something you get "rewarded" for, nor does it show loyalty.  That's life.


I agree.  But in addition to the whole dad dying thing, he also was a real good sport about starting the season on the bench after he had clearly played his way onto the team, as well as being a good sport about spending probably a year longer in the AHL than he needed to. 


Tatar, despite what some folks think, has had a really good attitude the entire time he's been in Detroit.  I think fans just get worried because he'd the kind of guy who says he's disappointed when he is, or pissed off, or whatever.  So they always think he's got an attitude.  He doesn't.  He's just up front about how he's feeling, which is unique for a Red Wing.

I would lock DD up for 5+ years with a deal that will most likely be a steal in the last couple years

Don't worry Kenny's got a firm grip on the wheel.



#2531673 Tomas Jurco's Ridiculous New Stick Trick

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 11 July 2014 - 06:33 PM

It's a neat trick, but...

[cranky old man] I'd rather see him out there at the end of practice working on picking the top corner, or firing slapshots or something [/cranky old man]


which admittedly he may have been doing before or after this video.  It's just that stuff like that is cool I guess but has zero usefulness in a game, other than improving his general hand eye coordination.   I'm more impressed by a kid grinding it out after practice firing puck after puck.

#2531276 Who has been Ken Holland's worst recent free agent signing?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 10 July 2014 - 06:05 PM

For me it was a tossup between Sammy at 2 years with a NTC and a raise, and Tootoo at $1.9 mill for 3 years.  


Sammy's was frustrating because it was Holland's classic move of returning to a former Red Wing when they're past their prime, then throw in the contract. 


But Tootoo's was completely baffling because he overpaid for a 4th liner that his coach had little interest in using (which I agree with).  It's not like Tootoo was a different player for the Wings.  They knew what they were getting, paid too much, then didn't use him.

We don't have superstars, though. I mean, aside from Datsyuk.

Zetterbergs beard alone is a superstar which in turn makes him a superstar

this is cute.....why don't they get married while they're at it and then they can punch cabbies together?  There's no way Kane is worth that money! 



and don't get me started on Toews' playoff beard......

More worthy than the effort used to type your post...



I went for "A healthy Player X is our deadline acquisition" as we hear that one every year, even though every team has players returning from injury throughout the year so it means jack s***.

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 July 2014 - 10:35 PM

Byuflin would make this offseason disaster complete, fat, overweight coachkiller with a questionable dedication to the game...rather sign no one than trading for him or a guy like Green. Oilers are trying hard to fix their own d why should they trade Petry?
