#2620376 Mitch Callahan signed 1-year - 600k

Posted by TheXym on 13 July 2015 - 01:42 PM

As much as I'm a fan of Miller on the fourth line (& of course star wars nicknames), I'd really like to see how well a callahan-glendog-ferrero fourth line would play together sometime in the next couple seasons.

Han-Luke-Lando works with the Star Wars motif

#2619569 Which Sweater Do RWs Retire First - Feds or Ozzy?

Posted by Manny>Ozzie(by a long shot) on 08 July 2015 - 09:28 AM

0 Vezinas = no hall= no number retirement.

Can you honestly say that Chris Osgood was one of the best goaltenders of all time? How many times did Roy or Broduer get benched in the prime of their careers, let alone ever?

When was he ever among the elite goaltenders in any given year? He accumulated wins with a long career on a team that was going to dominate the regular season regardless of the goaltender. Remember 2005-2006, everyone likes to hate on Manny but didn't the wings collect 50+ wins that year? Doesn't that prove the wings were going to win in the regular season regardless of goaltender?

Regarding the playoffs, goaltending was never really a strength or weakness, scoring goals was. When we succeeded in the playoffs it was when we scored at will, not when a goalie played lights out and we sqeaked out 2-1 wins.

Chris Osgood may have 400+ wins, but he himself was never instrumental in those wins. You can't say that about the other tenders in the hall.

Larry Aurie first. The disrespect for this man and his family is a huge stain on this franchise.

This probably never would have happened in the first place if she had a guy like Anthony Peluso with her.

#2618511 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by VM1138 on 01 July 2015 - 07:03 PM

The Richards signing kind of confuses me. I'm not sure what he brings to the table that we don't already have.  I guess he is center depth but we already have so many third-line caliber centers.  We already had veteran presence but I guess they felt we needed a bit more.

#2618473 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

90 should be available, it's worked out well for the last 2 FA signings we gave it to. 


#90 needs to be retired and hung from the rafters.


In the men's room.

I thought you were talking about Bill O'Reilly.  



I thought Baba.

Wow.  Did he have sex with a pornstar on the GM's desk?

#2617257 New Ultra-Enhanced Video/Renderings of the Arena District

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 29 June 2015 - 01:25 PM

Ok. I have a question for you then. Would you rather keep the old building around and have big advertising on the front of the Jersey like European soccer. Or would you rather have no Jersey advertising and a corporate name on a new arena?

I'm not sure that is the real situation.


"Okay guys, either we demolish the arena or we have ads on the jerseys to keep the arena standing. What's it gonna be?"

Glad Babcock's gone.


I don't think I could watch Miller-Glendenning-Ericsson for two and a half minutes of OT.

#2615863 OT Changes

I just don't get it, if the NHL(PA) and all others do hate the shootout so much either get rid of it or if for whatever reason they don't want to do that let it be the way it always was and hopefully will always be.

This 3:3 is just turning this thing into another gimmick,
like we've needed more gimmicks in a our game, which is more and more becoming something it shouldn't be.
