#2342664 Everyone chill out!

By the way, if no one recalls last year when we lost 7-1 to the caps, after starting the season strong. I'm sure a few people freaked out then too

 

And thankfully, our season ended wonderfully last year.  



I'm not sure how to reconcile this, and how both of these guys were playing in Europe earlier this month (and for months prior). Both of the Euro Twins should have been more than ready to go. Whats the deal? Negative locker room vibes? Contagious lazy attitudes from other teammates? 

 

They were playing in non-physical Euro leagues.  They forgot what it's like to play against NHL forechecking.

Well. What a start to my fan's career!

 

 

You're better off with Arsenal.  Good luck with Bayern Munich in a few weeks.

If Quincey challenges Jackman here, and beats the hell out of him, I'll forgive him completely for tonight.

Tootoo got a Bettman penalty.  Bettman knows why we signed Tootoo, so he told the refs anytime Tootoo tries to get physical, put him in the box. Cannot have the Wings at the top of the league anymore.

 

I am of course joking, I think the Wings are doing a pretty good job of that on their own tonight...

 

No, this has been happening for a while now.

 

I remember last year in the playoffs when every series in the first round had those scrums and cheapshots, tough guys were getting tossed out of games for any kind of scrum in the 3rd period of a noncompetitive game.  

 

Regardless of whether they did something egregious or not.  A guy would push and shove, and get a misconduct.  Screw this sissy league.

Tootoo gets kicked out for being a hockey player.

 

Than you Bettman for making this a worse league.  They tossed him because he might get into a fight later.

 

What a freaking joke hockey has become.

Anyone know Darien Hatcher's phone number?  Some guy named Kenny is wondering.

 

 

1-555-LURCH

If Ilitch pulled the plug several seasons ago, we could have a guy named Steve Yzerman as our current general manager.

A lot of over reaction going on right now. The Wings are just rusty, things will pick up in the 2nd period.

 

Dude, we look like Ireland at the Euros right now.

Haha. I've no idea. This is only my first game. I'll tell you once I get the hang of it :D

 

In case you haven't figured it out, Franzen is Fernando Torres around here.

I'm not really sure what type of guy you mean?  Do you have any examples of someone you think fits the bill in terms of style of play?  Doesn't have to be someone on the market, I just want to get an idea of what you're looking for. 

 

I always wanted to have an Erskine type player here.  A guy who regularly dressed on defense for the Capitals, and was an enforcer to boot.  Sheldon Brookbank is another such player.  

 

These types of bottom pairing D-men clear the crease, stick up for teammates, and are tough to play against in a playoff series.  And they're bone-fide tough guys/enforcers.  Also, these kinds of players don't cost a lot of money.  




#2340918 GM Ken Holland says Red Wings might not make playoffs this year

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 17 January 2013 - 12:37 PM

I don't see Babcock getting fired, but Holland probably will if that happens.  

 

He just hasn't given Babcock enough to work with the last couple of seasons.  There's only so much a coach can do with an old team that won't forecheck or score goals in the playoffs.  

 

Holland tried to make moves last offseason, but came up woefully short.  He'll pay the price if the Wings fail.

He dropped the gloves less often than Justin Abdelkader last season.  So he's the guy that's going to stick up for our stars?

 

I agree.  We should get another fighter, preferably on defense.  




#2340793 Jeremy Roenick's book and the introduction is AMAZING

The chapter about his day with the Cup should be a really good re.....................................................oh wait, nevermind.

But, but.......... I thought Downey and McCarty weren't important to our roster in 2008, as has been debated to death on this forum.
