Can we still play Columbus in the first round?

Why would any team want Emmerton?

I always forget that Larionov of all people started the brawl.

:lol:


#2273883 Brendan Smith sent back to Grand Rapids

Basically, next year Detroit will pay 3.5 million to Ericsson, who'll likely be sitting in the pressbox a lot.

Thanks for that Kenny.

I can see either side of this argument.

In one sense, we've seen the Wings lose in the first round to many teams we thought they'd walk over.

At the same time, I really don't want to see us play Chicago in the first round. That would be too stressful and too crazy for so early in the playoffs. And their annoying fans will come here to talk crap.


#2273811 Which team would piss you off the most if they won the cup?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 March 2012 - 10:26 PM

Can't believe no one mentioned the Florida Panthers.

I thought everyone hated them.

It's time for Dan Cleary to be a permanent scratch.

How about an arena with "Hockeytown" in the name?


#2272910 Babcock

I bet if Charissa Thompson was interviewing him instead of Pierre, he would have been more friendly.

:D

Problem with the Wings is they are making to many stupid mistakes. Mistakes you expect rookies to make not a veteran team. I cannot count how many times this year you see the Wings getting burned by bad changes (to many men tonight) which is all mental. And I cant think of a weaker end to end rush than the Wings gave up tonight. All that was missing was a red carpet for him to skate down before scoring.


Yeah, it's pretty poor when a veteran like Kronwall gets burned so easily by Richards.

With Lidstrom out, he has to step up and prove he can be a number one defenseman who can lead a team. Instead, he pulls that s***.

It looks like Datsyuk was brought back too soon.

They better rest him if it means getting him healthier for the playoff round.

WHAT THE f*** WAS CLEARY DOING ON THE ICE IN OT?!?! This team is done for. Babcock is a f***tard.


Cleary needs to be on the 4th line the rest of the season.

Get Mursak up one line and stop playing him with two useless players.


#2272494 So who could the Red Wings get in the offseason?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 March 2012 - 02:45 PM

Van Persie would be a great pick up. Cheers :siren:


And he has a connection with Holland. ;)


#2272325 Crosby

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 March 2012 - 09:37 PM

Why does Crosby have to be better defensively than Datsyuk in order to be considered the best player in the league?

So if Crosby is on pace to finish say 40 points ahead of Datsyuk if they both played full seasons, people would still say Pavel is better because he's better defensively.

I mean Gretzky and Lemieux weren't better two way players than Messier, but what idiot would say he was better than those guys?

I just don't get that argument. Sure Pavel is a better two way player than Crosby, but so are many other players in the league. Being the best two-way forward doesn't necessarily make you the best player in the league if one guy is just that much better offensively.
