Ya I don't think a single line on their will be right to start the year.

 

No s***.

 

6 guys will pull their groins in pre-season, leaving:

 

Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco

Nyquist - Helm - Abdlekader

Miller - Anderson - Pulkinen

Cleary - Glendenning  - Callahan

Under no circumstances should Abby be in the top 6. He has proven he isn't capable of playing that role and has what, 40 points in the last 120 games while playing with two of the best players in the league. I can't even count how many breakaways or open nets he misses, and gets goals because the puck bounces off him. Jurco should be in that role over Abby, has way more skill and plays bigger then Abby most of the time.

#2533989 Greatest Wings game ever

Posted by themcityblues on 10 August 2014 - 09:06 PM

The 7-0 squashing of the Avs in 2002. It was the pinnacle for my love of the organization. I've lived in Colorado since 1995 and often had rivalries with the Av fans. When the Wings murdered the Avs 7-0 it was, in a sense, a victory in the final battle. 




#2534013 Greatest Wings game ever

Posted by redalert02 on 11 August 2014 - 01:58 PM

 

For me it's game 6 2002 WCF vs the Avalanche because it just demonstrated just how dominant Hasek really was and Roy's gaffe was such a beautiful moment. Even better that it virtually cost the Avs another shot at the cup. I just remember being so elated with joy after seeing us stick it to Colorado. That series and that rivalry had so much passion and intensity and I can still hear Gary Thorne's voice as Shanny put the puck past a showboating Roy.

 

And that was after Shanahan missed a wide open net in the final minute of game 5... only to lose on a Forsberg OT goal that should have been whistled offside. I had trouble sleeping that night thinking we had blown our chance and it was over. The way we came back in game 6 and 7, to this day, it's still my favorite playoff series of all time. 




#2533678 Who is YOUR most under-appreciated/unsung Red Wing?

Posted by Learn2LuvIt on 04 August 2014 - 10:26 AM

Rafalski.  He did it all...and did it all at a world class level.  Unfortunately, as so happens when you play with one  of the best ever at a particular position, he was often overshadowed by Nick.  I also think Nick learned a lot from him on the blue line in terms of offense.  I have seen very few "skate the line" with the puck like Rafalski did.  At the beginning of his term with us, he was much better at this than Nick.  His lateral movement with the puck at the blue line to find a shooting lane was second to none.  As a result, Nick soon became much improved at this, and eventually you'd have to say that they were equally as good.  But Rafalski was underrated in my opinion.




#2533195 Wings stuff on clearance at Dick's

Posted by Matt on 28 July 2014 - 03:57 PM

****'s is not a curse word filter on here is it?

 

Holy crap, it is.  Feels like I'm in the 6th grade.  

 

 

Lol, no doubt.  The last couple years, this has become one of the most overly PC and heavily censored websites I have experienced in my 15+ years of internet. 

 

Especially absurd when you consider this is a hockey website.

 

Whatever...

 

 

Relax, fellas. You're not in a police state.

 

A few years ago there was a rampant problem with overly gratuitous cursing on the forums (particularly in the GDTs, where scores of entire posts would be made up of nothing but f-bombs and such). The community was warned that if such behavior continued that a curse filter would be enabled. This curse filter is just a huge word blacklist that was loaded into the database -- it wasn't something that myself or one of the moderators simply added one by one, manually.

 

That said, the behavior continued, it grew tiresome to continually delete/edit posts that were going over the line -- and the curse filter was enabled. I hate the fact we have to have a curse filter here. It annoys me to no end. But if the community can't handle that maturely then it's here to stay.

 

"Dick" was an unfortunate victim of blacklist collateral damage. You should be happy to see your dicks have henceforth been freed.

 

Enjoy.

My predictions?

 

Half the roster is injured by November and they barely scrape into the playoffs again.

#2532334 Babcock Interview on 105.1 this morning

Posted by GoWings1905 on 17 July 2014 - 01:30 PM

I like Babs a lot and this was a good interview, but I have no trust left him in whatsoever when he says "the best players will play."

 

It does sound though like Babs really wants to find a way to integrate the kids on defense sooner rather than later. Which who can blame him when his other options include Quincey, Kindl and Lashoff? 

 

Babs also said the Wings didn't hand out any bad contracts in free agency. Out on the lake when the Quincey deal happened?

#2531617 Who has been Ken Holland's worst recent free agent signing?

Posted by uk_redwing on 11 July 2014 - 03:24 PM

Dishonorable mention should also go to Cory Cross as a consideration.  16 games-2 points.  Benched and then traded.

 

He beat up Steve Ott though...
