Well surely now we can officially plan the parade for next year. The Cup is coming back home.

Dallas is making moves, trying to improve, and players aren't refusing to sign there.


Tampa Bay is making moves, trying to improve, and players aren't refusing to sign there.


Am I sensing a theme?


People who know history know that Holland didn't build those late 90's Cup teams. He spent to maintain them (02) after they had been built by Bowman and his predecessors. Furthermore, Holland was lucky in 08 and 09. (See Joe Dumars for reference). Having the best defenseman in a generation (along with prime Dats and Z) can do that to an organization. He didn't build the Wings championships and he sure as hell can't build them now.


People shouldn't be complaining about getting fleeced in the Legwand deal. The team got fleeced in losing Yzerman and Nill.

This is what they should wear IMO.



#2526929 NHL Trivia: Part One

I only got 15 right, and spent like 7 minutes trying to figure out how to spell Robitaille

#2524517 Shawn Thornton will not be returning to the Bruins

Posted by frankgrimes on 19 June 2014 - 04:17 AM

If they are facing the enforcer out and let the rats ruin the show, hockey will become like soccer on ice = unwatchable.


It's funny how often Thornton gets called a goon, the guy has skill and brings a lot of energy, leadership teams like the Oilers should be lining up to get him and his leadership. He could do some huge guidance for Gazdic or join the Flames and build the toughest 4 line in the NHL with McGrattan and Westgarth. There is potential for him that's for sure. Guy will be in the NHL next year and thanks god this game needs more not less players like him.


It's also funny, when the team with the softest fourth line in the league is talking about wasting a roster spot on someone like Thornton. For years now our so called fourth line has been a joke compared to the ones from Boston, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Kings heck even Chicago has a more physical fourth line.


Mark my words Chiarelli will regret this decision as soon as the Leafs are rolling into B-town. Would love to see a reinnovation of a grind line and the bash brothers but I also know it wont happen.

#2524673 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

If Dan Cleary SOMEHOW is given a roster spot on the Red Wings then I think all us Wings fans should go to every single pre-season game and chant CLEARY SUCKS... maybe that would send him a message to just go away already along with tell Kenny we are fed up with his loyalty.

Shouldn't we chant Holland sucks instead? Cleary is just doing what he loves. Holland is the one enabling that unfortunate opportunity to occur.

#2524188 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

Hahahaha. And people called me crazy when I said 100% he would be brought back, probably to a multi year deal.

I also very much expect a multi year offer to be made to Bertuzzi, Legwand, maybe even Sammy.

This is Holland.

Samuelsson would be a good powerplay coach.  



Shoot the glass!!!!!

The best goalie at wearing pads I ever saw.

I still wake up sweating in the middle of the night hearing "SAVE by Giguere!"

#2520917 WCSF : (6) Los Angeles Cartmans vs. (1) Coach Bombay and the Quacks

Posted by ShanahanMan on 16 May 2014 - 09:41 PM

Hilarious watching guys like Vanek and Gaborik show up hard for the playoffs and be difference makers while we paid loads more for a guy who became a 4th line winger. 


And yet Shero is the one who gets fired. 

#2520575 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 15 May 2014 - 03:23 AM

Lucic showed tonight what a piece of s*** dirtbag he is. Chris Pronger, as dirty as he was, always respected the handshake line. Even that dirty coward Claude Lemieux after he smashed Drapes face shook hands and didn't start a riot, or cause a riot. Lucic, is a big hunchback, no respect, spotpicking piece of garbage. I had some respect for him and the Bruins, but it's completely gone. I'm pretty young, but you do not disrespect the handshake line.

#2519196 Now some gritty forwards.

Posted by F.Michael on 04 May 2014 - 08:01 PM

I dunno.....I don't think anything will happen - it's just how Holland is.


IMHO - if the Wings want some size, and toughness - why not spend more time scouting the WHL/OHL/QMJHL?


Instead of drafting some kid in the 3rd round who's 5'10" 160 lbs soaking wet from the Czech Republic - why not take take the kid from Edmonton, Alberta who's 6'4" 215 lbs with a penchant for gritty play? 

#2518699 Holland Holding on to Jeff Blashill

Posted by LAWings on 01 May 2014 - 02:26 PM

Ive been saying since last year to bring up Blashill.  He has a very impressive resume he's won every championship of the league he's coached in, knows how to use kids, even spent time as assistant in NHL so he knows what to do.


Babcock's time is over, his system doesn't work here anymore, time for some new blood and energy.  Blashill knows these kids, he's doing very well with them.
