#2251911 How open would you be to trading Hank?

Posted by chrisdetroit on 03 February 2012 - 06:36 PM

The guy won the frickin Conn Smyth 3 years ago. Don't you remeber when he completely shut down Crosby in the finals 2 years in a row. And you want to trade him after 1 bad year.

No frickin way

I would not trade him even for Ovi.


#2250740 Toughening Up?

Posted by Hairy Lime on 30 January 2012 - 03:23 PM

"Toughening up" is something that should of been addressed when the Wings were trying to repeat, after Drake retired, when Kopecky kept falling on his ass while Downey was relegated to Grand Rapids. Yeah, that season was fun to watch... Thanks, Kenny.

But as to this season, have to wait and see who the buyers and sellers are. I'd love to add a player like David Clarkson, but NJ won't deal him if they are in a playoff position come the deadline, and maybe not even if they aren't. Chris Neil would be a good addition, and I'd be more than willing to give up Abdelkader in a package for him, and I don't care if he IS 8 years younger. I can't stand Abby! But again, would Ottawa part with Neil if they are fighting for positioning? I also like the idea of adding Morrow, even though I think he hates the Red Wings. He's a more talented Dallas Drake. But what would Dallas want in return? He's an unrestricted free-agent next season.

Detroit does need to get a little harder to play, but the days of Holland fleecing other teams is long over.


#2250423 How Would You Fix the All Star Game?

Posted by cusimano_brothers on 28 January 2012 - 10:18 AM

At one time, the All-Star Game saw the defending Stanley Cup Champions playing a team of All-Stars. Something is wrong when one of the League's "showcase" events has to rely on player's tweets to stir up interest. There is a subtle difference between a circus and a carnival.


#2250153 Stars' Brenden Morrow available?

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 26 January 2012 - 10:32 PM

Wow... Had no idea. I think I might prefer him over Ruutu.

Although if he misses any empty nets in the playoffs I'll probably regret it very quickly. We already have Filppula for that. :hehe:

May as well rest our core players.


From the looks of it, that first period was our core players resting :P


#2248805 1/23 GDT : Blues 1 at Red Wings 3

I dont know about the rest of you but I'll take composure, team toughness, push back and PP goals all day long over the dumb bull s*** that cost the Blues the game tonight.


AMEN. Keep up the class act, boys. :clap:

Lot of bitching about a lack of response to the Howard scuffle at the end there. Overall I think this game was a perfect example of why the Wings DON'T need another tough guy. They matched the Blues toughness PERFECTLY - the only difference was the Blues took stupid penalties and the Wings didn't. The final scuffle was fine by me. I don't mind seeing Howard stand up for himself - everyone else was tied up anyways.

Anyways, it was a really fun game to watch. I was impressed with the effort tonight.


#2244210 Losing: a reoccuring theme

Posted by newfy on 10 January 2012 - 11:49 PM

Games like tonight is where the wings could use someone to spark the team with a big hit or fight. Team was completely flat and the skill wasnt working, so what do the wings do? Absolutely nothing.

A game like this in 2008 would have been livened up and energized by Downey with a fight or Drake with a big hit (or possibly a fight every now and then)

Its great when the skill is working but the lack of a balanced team is clear in games like tonight


#2244187 Losing: a reoccuring theme

Posted by Crymson on 10 January 2012 - 10:20 PM

I think this team is a second round exit for sure as they keep choking on the road and they play defense worse than the Detroit Lions secondary e.g. teams with speed all look like the New Orleans Saints WR's!


Wait... YOU being pessimistic? What a shock (sarc). You already openly wrote off this squad despite the fact that they're currently tied for 2nd in the conference. Well, champ, why not use your amazing powers of prescience to tell us who WILL win the Cup this season?

#2243785 Cherry rips Holland

Posted by F.Michael on 10 January 2012 - 11:22 AM

Miller and Eaves block shots, kill penalties, finish checks, and play solid defense. I'm sorry that they don't destroy dudes with every check. You know who else didn't? Draper and Maltby, and everyone around here (rightly) worships them like gods for their gritty play.

Additionally, if our entire bottom six consisted of Darren McCarty type guys, we wouldf****** suck.

One could argue the same could be said if our bottom 6 were Drew Miller types.

#2241827 Open Season on Ducks

Posted by GoWings1905 on 05 January 2012 - 05:41 PM

Many people here seem to ignore the fact that Getzlaf is often lazy and extremely streaky, even when Ducks fans show up to say it themselves. More, Getzlaf is a set-up man. We don't need more of those.

Given that Perry is a massive douchebag, only Ryan would really be worth the Wings` time.


Wow, sounds like a current forward on this team minus the physical presence and far more offensive upside Getzlaf provides.


#2241613 Tempers Flare at Habs Practice

Holland's management style is why we never hear of anything like this happening with the Wings.

And what's that? Filling the roster with a bunch of wusses?

I keed I keed!
