Wow!! So exciting. Do the wings have anything in mind??? hmmmmmm =)

 

I'm pretty sure Cory Cross is retired.

BTW, someone should inform the NHL Network that the lockout has ended.

I'm gonna be pretty sour if Mikael Samuelsson bumps Nyquist out of Detroit.

 

You mean the man who singlehandedly won us game 1 of the 2008 SCF?

#2339014 Next Year UFA Wish List

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 10 January 2013 - 11:39 AM

Basically, the same as last year's wishes. 

 

Get a real top 6 forward, and a top 4 defenseman.  And one of those enforcer people.

So there's no excuse now for Francine not to be one of the league leaders in goals.

#2338663 Canadian hockey fans - they mad!

Canadians just want to be the best at the one thing they know how to do.  




#2338365 Team Roll Call.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 January 2013 - 08:34 PM

You're so silly.

 

I happen to know that Downey's manhood and toughness during the regular season, made our soft Euros play tougher come playoff time.  It's like he rubbed off on them, especially Filppula.

 

A source close to the team (Hudler) told me so.

So who would you replace him with?

 

Anyone younger than 38, with more talent and work ethic.  Shouldn't be hard.  

 

I don't know if Holland plans on doing anything at this point.  I know he didn't do much last offseason to bolster this team.

 

As far as our current roster goes, I gave you what I thought was the best lineup.  I never said I liked the lineup.  Bert is another player like Sammy that doesn't belong well on any line.  

 

Maybe we can just dress him for those cheap shootout points we're going to need in this short season.  




#2338347 What Happened to Realignment?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 January 2013 - 07:49 PM

That map would look so much better if Florida and Tampa were casually removed from the NHL.

Why the Bertuzzi hate?  Were his 38 pts. not impressive enough?  He's a complimentary piece, with size, soft hands, and ability to cycle down low.  Paired with the right linemates he's still a very effective player.  Especially considering he's the only forward we have with any size who is strong on the puck and hard to take it away from.  How do you justify putting him on a checking line at 38 years old and without good speed to begin with?  Might as well not even play him if that's the plan, and presumably replace him with who?  A small skilled forward?  Sheahan?  There's nobody else.

 

No, considering how he played with Datsyuk or Zetterberg at various points in the season.  

 

If you can't score more than 38 points playing with those players, you shouldn't be on the top two lines.  Just means he was dragging those guys back from scoring even more.

You wouldn't keep Brunner and Z together? Interesting.

 

I'd load up the top line.  Short season and we'll need Pavel and Hank to carry us.  Brunnstrom will need to help the third line score.  Sammy is useless unless he's on the top 6.  I still don't know why Holland signed him honestly.  

 

Of course, these lines will change after a few games.  Expect coaches to pull out all kinds of stops in a short season.

#2337212 Holland booed off Ford Field

Maybe the boos were due to not landing a high end D or F

 

Or letting Lilja go.  




#2337116 NHL submits offer to NHLPA - **Suspension Warning Post #70 & #273*

Red Wings sources: Hockey season will be salvaged, Jan. 19 start

 

http://motorcitymuck...d-jan-19-start/

 

 

 

 

I'm guessing Ted Lindsay 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm still cautiously optimistic. This is the NHL we're talking about.

 

I remember this cocktease from several weeks ago, and right before the 2005 season was cancelled.  I'll believe it when I see it.
