#2381985 4/7 GDT : Blues 1 at Red Wings 0

Posted by kipwinger on 07 April 2013 - 02:16 PM

I still think we will make the playoffs by the skin of our teeth, but Kenny has really got to get us a scoring winger and a bonifide #1 D

for next season. Plenty of effort tonight but we just dropped a place in the standings and teams around us have games in hand. We

need a least 5 wins from our remaining games to make the post season.


He made some phone calls and was totally blown away when he found out that you can't get a scoring winger or top defenseman if you're completely unwilling to move a first round pick or any of your top prospects.  Who knew you couldn't get Jason Pominville for Landon Ferraro and a conditional 4th rounder?

Ryan Clowe would have been nice in a game like this.

realizing hockey isn't business anymore. Thats why you have a player like cleary playing over tatar. Play thy best yet we won't

Time to send Nyquist to the minors to join Tatar.  


He's playing far too well to stay up on this team.    

"We just wanted to see what he could do.  Nyquist has got some good talent, but we've decided to let him blossom a little bit in the minors.  We're going to give XX a shot, but he'll be back."

#2380771 Nyquist thoughts

Saying Nyquist isn't really NHL-ready is silly.


I think the big problem is...well I'll show you (since I love doing this so much):









All of our high-end players are subtle variations on the same damn player. Practically our entire top six corps - I mean the guys who really do deserve to be in the pool (and I do count Nyquist among them) - is softish, smallish, Euro playmakers.


I think of Selanne. Is he really that good (and indeed, maye he is)...or does he benefit a whole lot from having a pack of bulldogs around him, creating space for him, wearing down the opposition for him? I feel Nyquist would do well in a similar situation.


So, what I'm saying is: NHL-ready, and potentially lethal...just not in Motown. Maybe.


We'll see. (Or we won't.)

What would be awesome is having a fourt line with just fighters. Put em out every start of a period against the top line. No head hunting just push em around a bit.
Or even after the team scores...we'll be the Detroit 'dread you'll see Red' Wings.

its the truth. Let's all give Holland a standing ovation for his excellent trade deadline acquistions. Mikeal Samuelson, Todd Bertuzzi, and Darren Helm

But guys...can we really be surprised?  Ken "Status Quo" Holland has been doing this for years.  We have definite needs and money to spend and he sits on his hands.


Management gave up after Suter and Parise went elsewhere.  I didn't want to believe it, but that's what happened.  They threw in the towel.  Kenny said it himself.  He knew this team might not make the playoffs.  That's a lack of confidence.


Babcock begged Lidstrom to come back during training camp.  BEGGED.  That's just embarassing.


And you know what?  It didn't have to be this way.  Instead of bringing the youth up and going after some players NOT named Ryan Suter and Zach Parise, he goes out and signs useless Band-Aids and essentially plays dice with the season.  They knew it was going to be a "transitional/rebuilding year" long before the season started.


Well you know what?  I'm not buying it.  That's just a fancy way of saying "lost season".

Can't wait to see what Crymson has to say...

#2378601 Stars trade Jaromir Jagr to Bruins

It's always "the asking price is too high", and why aree the goddamn Bruins so frigging special?!  The Wings are so close to having something special and Kenny has to see this...

It's because Kenny doesn't realize you have to give up something to get something. That's what July 1st is for Kenny. Oh wait you never do anything there either cause you want everyone to play for peanuts

"Since signing a 2year deal worth $6M, complete with a NTC, Mikael Samuelsson has been on ice for 50 minutes and 47 seconds."

Lmmfao brilliant.
I'll tell you what, this genius here sure as fkcu wouldn't have made that offer.

I just got home and I haven't checked the score yet. I've had a horrible day but a good game by Wings should make it up. How are we doing?
