#2678669 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by F.Michael on 22 June 2016 - 09:30 PM

A slow piece of s***. But who cares, speed doesn't matter in hockey anyway.

I've seen Lucic play live a few times.

 

IMHO - he isn't slow - just that he's not as agile as most others in the league.

 

In other words - he's got respectable 'straight ahead' speed, just that if Lucic isn't driving to the net - he looks ordinary at best.

 

I'd want a Lucic from a few years ago, but now...Meh...He'll get his $$$, and chances are his production will drop.

I don't care what anyone says...My eyeballs tell me we need guys who play with more balls...:crazy:




#2678538 16-17 Farewell Joe Season Schedule

Posted by F.Michael on 21 June 2016 - 05:14 PM

I wonder by what percentage the tickets will increase this season, being the last season and all?  Would like to know as I plan on attending my first game this year.  

Urinating in the troughs will be a memorable moment for you...Wait - you are a guy - right?

Do people really think Stamkos is the 3rd best player in the league? I still think Crosby, Ovi, Malkin, Seguin, Benn, Kane are all better then him.

He's in that company - no doubt.

 

He'll still have the ability to hit 90 plus pts per season for the next 4, or 5 seasons (if he stays healthy).

 

There's nobody on the current roster that'll come close to that production, and he'll make others around him better.




#2677947 Datsyuk - someone who works for JLA told me he's sold his house

Posted by F.Michael on 17 June 2016 - 12:06 PM

I meant Babcock made the wrong choice because he will never have a chance to win again, but hey who cares when you can now wipe your a** with $100 bills... Babs is a great coach, but I was more than happy when he moved on.

That's the impression I got originally, but I honestly feel the Leafs will turn it around within a few seasons (especially if they sign Stamkos).

 

My take is that it's not up to Babs whether Stamkos is given an offer sheet - Shanahan/Lamoriello are running the show in TO.

I'd get a good laugh if he signed with the Sabres...It's certainly possible.




#2677865 NHL Chooses Las Vegas for 17-18 Expansion

Posted by F.Michael on 16 June 2016 - 10:20 AM

That and more importantly i believe a team will relocate to Quebec City ... Maybe Carolina Hurricanes

And don't forget Winnipeg got Atlanta during a hockey season so it's a possibility Quebec also joins Vegas in 2017-2018

This would be a best possible scenario.

 

Hopefully when a team does make it's way to QC - these bad boys are resurrected...

I honestly hope this gets wrapped up quickly...Before ya know it it'll be draft day, and UFA shortly thereafter.

Another reason to name the new stadium after Howe.  

Howe Arena, Howe Center, Howe Auditorium - all sound good to me.

 

RIP Mr Hockey




#2676907 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by F.Michael on 03 June 2016 - 12:12 AM

We've brought in Sean Avery, Todd Bertuzzi, Jordin Tootoo for pete's sake! 

 

 

Brenden Shanahan was labeled as one of the worst locker room cancers when he played for the Blues. And Bowman brought him in regardless. Look at how things turned out for him and the Wings. Even Dominic Hasek was known to cause locker room issues in his previous teams. 

 

Radulov won't be anything out of the ordinary. This is exactly what the Red Wings do. We bring in controversial players and try to make good use of them. 

Sorry, but you simply cannot put Shanahan, and Radulov in the same post...I just might have to call Don Cherry on you.


All the kids will snort coke and bang hookers before games, fire up a bong between periods, and start smoking 2 packs of unfiltered camels a day just because of Radulov's bad influence. It is known.

Yes - it's been proven by Stephen Hawking himself...Radulov is evil.


You think that Z, Blash and Kronwall have some kind of influence???

Of course they have influence - why those 3 alone f***ed our pp.

Murdering an endangered animal (captive mountain gorilla) because someone cannot watch their kid is not bad enough.

 

Now the zoo is being sued  - there's a shocker - for negligence.

 

I give up. 

As a parent - I couldn't agree more Loo.

 

My wife took my 3 lil'guys to the Milwaukee County Zoo this past Saturday...Needless to say there were quite a few 'animals' with children of the human variety...As in - some people shouldn't be allowed to breed.




#2676708 Dustin Brown losing captaincy

Posted by F.Michael on 28 May 2016 - 04:37 AM

Wonder if Brown has, or will request a trade?

 

Unless it was a request made by Brown (stepping down), or if there were some issues in the locker room - removing the 'C' is a questionable action to take, and IMHO a s***ty thing to do.




#2676685 Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

Posted by F.Michael on 27 May 2016 - 02:08 PM

He can still play in junior next season as an overage, 20 year old, as long as the Colts aren't to their limit. Each team in the OHL is eligible to carry three overage players each season. It's up to management and what they think is best for his development. I'm thinking you're right though and he makes the jump to pro and plays next season in Grand Rapids.

Oh - thanks for the info...Didn't realize guys could play in major junior when they hit 20.

 

Personally I'd think he should try his luck in the AHL, but since I'm no GM I haven't the clue as to what's best for him.




#2676659 2016 SCF: San Jose Sharks vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Was pulling for the Blues, but now I'm hoping the Sharks win the Cup.




#2676616 Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

Posted by F.Michael on 26 May 2016 - 07:17 PM

 

UPDATE: The #RedWings have acquired prospect Dylan Sadowy from San Jose for a third-round draft pick in 2017.

 

 


I watched him his entire OHL career here in Saginaw (until he was traded half way through the season last year, which is typical in the OHL), and Wings fans should be excited. I'd argue he's a little tougher version of Abdelkader with a better scoring touch. He was always the first one to jump in & defend his teammates. Was a good captain here. Great pick-up!

The idea of our beloved Detroit Red Wings adding some players who play with an edge makes my head woozy with delight.


Right. Cause we've NEVER had that type of player on the wings

Years ago we did, but in the last several years - not so much.
