#2219844 This team screams for a trade

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 October 2011 - 06:30 PM

You know what this team really needs?


Better fans. You know, fans that won't overreact at the drop of af****** hat. We lost three in a row. That sucks. We should be playing better. Our defense needs to be shored up, our goaltending needs to be tighter. Key players need to start producing.

None of those things will happen with a trade. All of those things will happen when players currently on the roster pull their heads out of their butts. We don't need enforcers, goons, instigators, or fighters......we don't need a new goalie, a new coach, or an entirely new top line. What we need is for people to CALM DOWN and stop acting like because we're under-performing in October, we'll be getting swept out of the playoffs come April, if we're lucky enough to even make them. There is more than enough time for the Red Wings to start playing like they did during the first five games, and less like they have during the last three. I'm confident our ship will right itself.


Are you and Crymson dating?

Most posters are just trying to make constructive posts about things we may or may not need for the long run. Just because a few people overreact doesn't mean everyone here sucks.

Who are these better fans you speak of? Which team's fanbase? I'd like to know.

Here's an idea.....trade him to Philly!! :hehe:


For some Norwegian defenseman who'll never play here.

:hehe:

"The Wings win five in a row? Why, we expect that of them. Why appreciate it? Now, the Wings lost three in a row? Unacceptable! Blow up the team!"


:rolleyes:

Thanks for pointing this out for the millionth time.

Can we all at least agree that George Parros would be a big hit here?

thats grand rapids team sure loves to drop em. think they are leading the ahl in fights right now. can't wait until these thugs get up to the wings :P


If the Wings continue losing, Babcock should have them scrimmage against Grand Rapids.

Maybe a little "tough love" is what the Wings need.

Why is consensus on this important to you? I don't understand.



I'm just waiting on when you'll say that if we had Ritola, everything would be different.

In other news, I see you got hit on the head and forgot about last postseason. The Sharks won that series on two absurd bounces in OT.


Absurd bounces?

More like an absurd post. Stop making childish excuses each time we lose in the playoffs.

According to some people here, we haven't legitimately lost a series in like 8 years.

I agree with you 100%. It has gotten so bad on these forums to the point that I am going to other hockey forum boards to be active. Reading all the negativity on these boards really does make me feel the way that you do. I will also add another word into your definition and that is "entitled". Many wings fans feel just because they put a team on the ice, that they are entitled to a victory. This is the kind of attitude that you breed when your team never misses the playoffs and has won 4 stanley cups. This forum really does need an enema.

Then I read some of the positive comments from the great fans on this forum and it makes me change my mind. For as many negative fans, there are some positive ones that actually know the game of hockey. These are the people that I keep coming back to this forum for.

I am watching a DVR recording of the game now. I was watching the Griffins get beat soundly by the Heat tonight. It looks like it is going to be a close game just from the first 10 minutes of the game.


I am unhappy about the way we're playing, Nightfall.

Honestly though maybe it would be good for the Wings to be bad one season and get a draft pick that can actually produce the year he is drafted and not 6 years later.


Any chance we get Andrew Luck?

Babcock just continues to be outclassed by his former assistant.

I agree that there's definitely a truth to this. Flip, Hudler, and Cleary, all have fun beating up on the Coyotes but are noticeably absent from Sharks games.


We can't beat the Sharks without Robert Lang.

This team is screaming for a trade right now.

We need a goalie.

If Howard didn't have a kid, he would have stopped that shot. Can't let a "bad shot" like Thornton score there.

Also, Ian White has played like garbage tonight. Maybe he's still too friendly with his former teammates.

If we had an enforcer on our team, that ref would be intimidated from making that call.


#2219168 Assistant Captain - Tomas Kopecky

I'll never forget his last shift in Detroit. This is what leadership is all about and the reason why he gets the "A" on his jersey.

This thread is almost as good as the "Trade Zetterberg for Trevor Gillies" thread that I was planning later this season.
