#2552274 11/26 GDT : Philadelphia Flyers 2 at Red Wings 5

Gotta love that nobody thought that third line would be all that good, and they got all three stars.

If that stays as a third line and the other team treats it like a typical third line, Pavel will embarrass them.

Same old Wings!

Ya same old wings. Getting themselves hooked and not calling penalties and all that's stuff. Amiright?

I think it's a mistake to play all of the starters on opening night. What if they all get injured?! I think we should play all the Griffins tonight, and as they get injured throughout the year, we can replace them with the regulars. Duh.

That be a foolish bet. Looking at guys like z dat Weiss and Franzen they're trending down injury wise. So why on earth would you expect it to be different? It's fine to hope and dream but you're basically asking for the sun to rise from the west...


The issues Hank have been having have been repaired. Weiss will be fine. He was stubborn and played hurt, and made things worst. He will be healthy and good to go this season. The extra long summer will help  Datsyuk a lot. There are also no olympics to cause him to keep playing hurt so he can represent his country. Franzen being out from time to time won;t be the end of the world with the depth in the system. In the end, it is highly unlikely these guys combined miss anywhere close to what they did last year. Wouldn't be a foolish bet what so ever.

As long as his food expenses do not go against our salary cap it would be ok to have him on board.

Are we going for the Calder Cup??


Since Blashill took over down there, the answer is yes.  That hasn't been the case with our coaches in the past who haven't done much with the talent they have been given.  A strong farm system is just as valuable as a strong NHL team.

#2529198 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by gcom007 on 01 July 2014 - 09:46 PM


He gave up. I can see the "lack of drive" argument.  He could've waited all summer to find a deal somewhere else.  Maybe Europe?  Instead, he signed our worst defensemen who actually cost us at least 16 games last season, gave him a raise, and closed up a roster spot.  So basically...we're done on defense.  A kid needs to get a chance.  Maybe we add someone like Vrbata, but we're basically done up front, too.


So on day one of free agency...Holland has already given up.  Sure, we discarded some chaff, but not enough, and we didn't actually get any better.  We can only hope we're good enough to get a higher seed in the playoffs and maybe get a more favorable matchup until we run into a team like the Bruins who are built to beat our team.


I think a lot of people realize how terrible this Quincey signing is, but I don't think as many have a grasp of how much it means in the big picture. It's just utterly horrendous. Even if the guy wasn't as bad as he is, it's just such a terrible thing to go and do when our image already in the toilet. You do nothing and you can at least go on trying to minimize what happened today, but signing Quincey to that deal was a grand acknowledgement of the fact that this off-season is already an epic disaster for the Detroit Red Wings.

#2510031 ECQF - Series A - Bruins versus Red Wings

Posted by kipwinger on 16 April 2014 - 01:18 PM

Ansar Khan and Brenden Savage both picked Boston.  I'm currently making them rue the day by utilizing the comments of my arrogantly ignorant Mlive character "TheGlistening" to baffle, confuse, and idiotically insult them.  In past exchanges I've accused them of being the "liberal media" for reporting Red Wings loses, as well as attempted to arrange a Khan v. Albom celebrity boxing match for a charity of TheGlistening's choice.  In that case it was a fundraiser to support my character's made up dance troupe "The Tri-City Manikins" located in Saginaw, MI. 


Don't ever be a Michigan sports writer and pick the opposition on my watch.

Ville Leino is doing what it takes to get that #1 pick. He's the only one who really gets it. You mock him now, but one day, when the Sabres are the most dominant team in the modern era, you'll remember Ville Leino, the selfless hero who took it upon himself to turn the organization around and put it on the path to future glory. And you mocked him.

So how many points must we take tonight? I've been looking all over and can't find an answer.

Smid yes, Visnovsky no. Too old.


Your face is too old. At the right price, Visnovsky would be a good add.

Brouwer could have had goalie interference, but thank god Ovie's controller disconnected half way through the one-timer.
