#2231661 Red Wings recall forward Chris Conner from Grand Rapids

Posted by redwingfan19 on 01 December 2011 - 12:58 PM

Can't they just call up Nyqvist and get it over with already?

Another smallish forward who will lose puck battles.


#2231603 What's up with Zetterberg?

Posted by stinky fish taco on 01 December 2011 - 08:32 AM

i don't think we'll ever hear "two of the best forwards in the NHL" again.

pavel is on his own, now.


#2231605 Bobby Ryan/Jarome Iginla watch

I'd make a run for Iginla!


#2231156 Wings are soft as hell.

Who do this year's Pens have?



Engelland, Asham, and Macintyre. All of whom could likely walk into our forward gate and fight their way through the Wings bench and walk out the defense gate relativley unscathed.

Bertuzzi can fight but hes not the 27 year old 250lb monster he used to be in Vancouver - plus hed had a few concussions ... I dont want to see Bert fighting tough guys. Abdelkader is a decent also. I agree with TS in saying that grabbing someone who can play the game and eat up minutes but is ready/willing/capable to throw down to defend teammates or spark the bench when needed.


#2231052 Eric Nystrom on waivers

How many Wings have scored 8 goals this season?


How many things can you possibly find to whine about? When the Wings play a mediocre game, you're everywhere. When the Wings play a great game, you're nowhere to be found. And you complain consistently about a team that's always one of the premiere clubs in the league.

Sucks for you, I guess.

When was the last time a 'hard' team won a Stanley Cup? The '07 Ducks?


Last year's Bruins don't count?

There are plenty of players that we can pick up next year that will make us tougher to play against.

Aron Asham
Brandon Prust
Byron Bitz
Daniel Carcillo
Darrel Boyce
Matt Martin
Shawn Thornton
Sean Avery
Ryan Carter
Tim Jackman
Jim Slater
Joey Grabb
Philippe Dupuis
etc...




Defenseman:
Barret Jackman
Alexi Yemelin
Theo Peckham
Mark Fistric
Korbinian Holzer
Mike Kommiserak
Boris Valabik
etc..


There is plenty of players that Holland can go out and replace Bert, Hudler, Miller, Emmerton and Holstrom etc. We need a change of 4th line. Usually 4th lines are big gritty guys that go out and crash and bang. We have a bunch of small soft guys that get manhandled like crazy.


#2230761 Acquiring a top six forward

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 29 November 2011 - 01:41 AM

Assuming Anaheim continues to fall:

To Detroit:

Bobby Ryan
Matt Beleskey

To Anaheim:

Todd Bertuzzi
Cory Emmerton
Jakub Kindl
Draft pick


May be overpayment, but we get a legit top line sniper in Bobby Ryan, and a young, speedy grinder with a nose for the net.

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Ryan
Hudler-Filppula-Franzen
Beleskey-Helm-Cleary
Holmstrom-Abdelkader-Eaves
Miller

#2230031 11/25 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 2 (SO)

Posted by NeedMoreToughness on 26 November 2011 - 01:23 PM

Would be nice to have a guy like Thornton on your 4th line, great skater, great forechecker, great fighter, great teammate, right-handed shot...

Posted by NeedMoreToughness on 25 November 2011 - 05:00 PM

Oh my the wings got so physically dominated, you can't deny they were very lucky to come out with the W

I've never seen Ericsson play with any balls anyway. He'll be fine.


#2228373 Philadelphia Flyers Unveil Winter-Classic Jersey

Posted by Jedi on 21 November 2011 - 01:39 PM

I would find it really difficult to make a Winter Classic jersey for a team that never really changed theirs throughout history.

Exactly. Philly's jerseys have had very little change over the years, so finding a different look in the past is going to be hard to do. I'm at least glad that the rumors that it was going to be based off the old Philadelphia Quakers turned out to be incorrect...

I'm telling you though, the NHL needs to let them wear Cooperalls one last time...
