My God, they are such goons... Philthy needs to lose, here... truly.  LGRW!!

 

Goons?  I wish.  There are none anymore.

I would love to see the player Smith could become if we could just remove his shriveled peanut brain...

 

On another team maybe.  We need to trade him away.  Tired of his mistakes.  




#2648214 And your NHL All-Star Division Captains are....

I wish I could post pics on mobile, but some guy on reddit runs a tshirt biz, and Scott had had tshirts made for all his ASG teammates. NHL really botched this one. Sent the guy across a continent with his wife about to give birth to twins all because the don't want him to play in the ASG.

shame shame

 

The entire Montreal franchise is a joke for agreeing to this farce of a trade.  They have no intention of calling up Scott and are basically kissing the league's ass.

This is bullcrap.  Another reason for me to care less about this boring league.  Scott playing was pretty much the only reason I wanted to see the game.  


The one guy that actually wants to be there, they kick out

 

It's a gutless league that likes to alienate its own fans.  Same league that's had 3 separate lockouts in the last few decades.  Bettman and the other suits just don't get it.  




#2648120 2015/2016 Around The League

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 15 January 2016 - 01:18 PM

Was listening to the NHL channel on Sirius XM radio this morning while dropping the boys off at school.

 

Generally speaking - there's a 'need' for experienced Dmen...Apparently not too many were aware of Kindl being on waivers...

 

Too bad.  Either the Capitals or Panthers blew their chance to get that missing piece for their Cup run.

I liked him more when he coached the Blues and was our b****

I like Marchenko, but why is he untouchable?

I liked our 2008 team because we had speed/ skill guys like Dats, Z, Hudler, Filpula, Helm  but also had grit players like Chelios, Stuart, Downey, Maltby, McCarty, Samuelsson, (wow we had a lot of gritty guys back then) 

 

The balance works. I'm all for Okposo if there was a guarantee he would sign. Okposo has good size for a winger imo. 

 

I agree with your post, but Samuelsson was not gritty.

Okposo and Hamonic for Nyquist, Ericsson, and a 1st??

 

How about Tavares, Okposo and Hamonic in return for us picking up the remainder of Yashin and Dipietro's contracts?

 

:lol:




#2647316 America's Team?

Red Wings jersey in Saudi arabia. Told you the Wings had fans overseas xD 

 

That guy in the picture appears to be a right handed shot.  Any chance we can sign him?

No f***ing rentals! I don't want anything to do with anymore Legwand, Cole , Zidlicky type deals... If we're trading for a player, giving up assets, go after a player that can help us this year, as well as the coming years. No more way past their prime players, go after youth. We're not one player away from being Cup favorites, but we're definitely building a contender for the near future. We have some really nice pieces, but most are still too young, keep building this team up. I'd rather be sellers than buyers at the deadline, unless there's an actual "hockey trade" that can be made to bring in a top pairing defenseman...

 

I wouldn't mind us going after Jagr and Scott as rentals.  Two All Stars who could help us fill our needs somewhat.  We likely wouldn't have to give up much for either.  




#2646501 The Elite Dylan Larkin

I must admit that I was surprised Crosby was left off the roster, it makes no sense to me.  He's he had an absolute horrible start to the season...but that's also by his standards, his offensive stats are still better than almost half the forwards on the roster (10 of 24).  The all star games if for the kids and for your corporate sponsors, you want to showcase your stars...it's mind boggling that he wouldn't be selected unless there have been behind the scenes requests to leave him off due to nagging injury (playing through but doesn't want to end up in situation he and other players have been before with the AS game).

 

Crazy to think though, he's actually only played in 1 all star game.  He would have been there based on performance every year, but missed 5 due to injury, 3 due to Olympics and 2 due to lockout.

 

John Scott will take care of the sponsors and the kids.  




#2646499 Ken Campbell predicts Stamkos to Detroit blockbuster

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 January 2016 - 01:55 PM

Would it be possible to add Holland and Yzerman to that trade?  I mean a straight swap of GM's?  Then I might be inclined to agree.

 

Yzerman has fleeced that idiot before with the Quincey trade.  If Stamkos doesn't commit to Detroit, there's no reason to make this trade.

I'm not sure what Wings fans want or think about young talent anymore. There was a significant portion of fans prior to the season telling us he'll be good but must suffer the lower leagues before we saw him for some magical number of years.

The kid has played at an elite level since he started and there's absolutely no one I would trade him for. His stats are on par with the best in the league and he will get nothing but better as he plays with top end talent. He's elite.

 

You wouldn't trade him for McDavid, Tavares or Benn?  




#2646160 America's Team?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 January 2016 - 10:09 PM

There is no America's team.  Not even the Cowboys.  This isn't the 70's.  The NFL is so big now that pretty much everyone has a local team they root for. 

 

Hockey is a niche sport, and hockey fans don't typically like the Red Wings.  I don't see any NHL team getting national recognition in the media.
