#2533021 Confused on the direction of this team going forward

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 25 July 2014 - 06:58 PM


If you look at my line-up (which was done in a pretty light-hearted fashion by the way) it's clear that I was looking 3-4 years down the road. By then, Ericsson's deal will be up and he'll be passed over for younger/better players. And Helm? Let's just just say, with his injury history,  I'll be surprised if he can still walk in 3-4 years

In 3-4 years, Helm will be skating circles around a pile of crows for LGW to feast upon ;)


I hope he plays 82 games next season and everyone forgets the past 2 years.

No big E ?

No Helm is the worst part.  I'd love to see the speed on a line of Helm-Larkin-Athaniesou.

Nyquist - Zetterberg - Franzen

Tatar - Datsyuk - Jurco

Sheahan - Weiss - Mantha

Abdelkader - Helm - Callahan

Miller - Glendenning


Kronwall - Ericsson

DeKeyser - Quincey

Smith - Sproul






2015-16 Stanley Cup Champions! :stanley: ;)

That line up makes me actually want to get NHL Gamecenter after this year.  I wish we could swap KFQ for Ouellet though.  His positioning, vision and 1st pass make him a huge asset.  One can assume Marchenko's gonna make a push soon too, so Ericsson will have to play exceptional to keep that spot with Kronwall.

Seabrook and Bickell and others from Chicago are available per nhl.com. Would love to have them. Both can make a huge impact on our team. Kenny needs to wake up.

I'd rather not take on Bickell, but Seabrook is exactly what our blueline needs.  That is a trade where I would be willing to use Tatar as a centrepiece. 

#2532181 preds prospects Viktor Arvidsson and Kevin Fiala shootout moves

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 15 July 2014 - 05:42 PM


As a life long Wings and Jets fan, it is not the "Forsberg", it's the Zhamnov.  Forsberg can suck it.  Z and that Preds kid do "The Zhamnov".  Glad I could finally get that off my chest. :lol:


In addition, Forsberg did it what? 1994 Olympics or something?  I was at one of the Jets games in 92 or 93 when Zhamnov broke in and started doing it. 


Back on topic, sort of, I like Preds fan.  Anyone who rags on him for posting a topic in the General Discussion area needs to calm the hell down.  People always say, hey, I don't know much about that guys, can anybody shed light on what that player is like.  Here's a video of what a couple players are like, now you don't have to ask.


Edit:  After some research, Wiki stated that Forsberg borrowed the move from retired Swede Kent NIlsson, but that doesn't take away the fact that Zhamnov did the move 2 years before Floppa.

#2532064 Favorite Dan Cleary Moment or Play

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 14 July 2014 - 05:08 PM

I voted other.  I was a fan of his up until 2010, but that was 4 years ago now.  After numerous years of waiting for Cleary to join another team, my favorite Cleary moment was when he "signed" with the Flyers last summer, followed by my 2nd least favorite Cleary moment where he backed out and rejoined the Wings and it's not hard to guess that my least favorite Cleary moment was when he signed again this summer.


That was a nice penalty shot goal, that was a great hit on Phagooooof and any time someone fights Pronger is fun to see, but he's been a Wings a decade as of this upcoming season......hence the poll should have more options in over 500 games.

#2531964 Holland Wiki page edited

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 13 July 2014 - 07:43 PM

I just thought of something.  The reason Ken Holland wants all his players to be overripe and 1000% NHL ready is because in his 1st NHL game he got lit up for 7 goals.  It all makes sense now.

#2531962 Holland Wiki page edited

Whoever did that to the Wiki page is hilarious.  Holland has become a villain and the write up is well deserved.

I would absolutely love if I were Washington's GM and I had an injury prone, defensively irresponsible, RH puck mover and you two were the Detroit's GM.  I'd GLADLY take your future 20 goal, 50+ pts, forward off your hands for a guy that really doesn't factor into my long term plans now that I need the cap space and have signed Niskanen and Orpik. 


And then I'd laugh and wish you good luck "locking up" this guy in FA next year after you either don't make the playoffs or bounce early.  I'm sure Mike Green is dying to play for another borderline NHL team, so why wouldn't he sign?

Future my ass!  He would have got 20 if he wasn't a healthy scratch the first 7 games!!!  Just adding to your point btw, not attacking :lol:

If tatar gets traded im done... ESPECIALLY for Mike green


Him and helm are the only guys who bring it every shift... I seriously think Tatar has the most heart in the league.


Hell, hes the only guy on our whole team with any sort of character.

Z brings it every shift, but you do have a point, Tatar is a ball of energy.  I'd lose my s*** if Helm got traded as well.

Los Angeles Kings


TYRION LANNISTER - Full of personality, often overlooked to the detriment of others, and always comes out on top in the end. Spends a lot of time drinking out of cups.


Absolutelyf****** awesome!!  My favorite charcter too.

Kenny sounds like a guy trying to explain his latest STD.

#2530588 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 08 July 2014 - 11:44 AM

What do you guys think of Ryan Malone? I haven't followed him too much after he left Pit, but could he be a in front of the net power forward type we could use?


I see Vancouver bought out Booth and he is a UFA.  Also, I would love to add Jeremy Welsh to our crop of young talent.  Other players that I think would be nice here INSTEAD of re-signing Cleary:


Heatley, Ott, Setoguchi and then the mentioned Booth and Malone..

Malone would basically be a 2nd Abdelkader on our team that doesn't hit as much.  Heatley is a bad idea...he's like a poor man's Franzen these days.  Ott would be great here with his assholey abrasive style.  Not too familiar with Booth these days.  Setoguchi....as a big Jets fan as well, I can tell you I am insanely happy to not have him on the Jets anymore.  He's lazy, he's soft and he misses the net more than Franzen.


So out of those guys, yes to Ott, but only if we can dump Andersson to free up a spot.

#2530088 Red Wings rookie camp roster revealed

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 05 July 2014 - 10:42 AM

So we have Pulkkinen, Mantha and Athaniesou fighting for roster spots?  I think that's something exciting to look forward to.  Don't sign Cleary, cause I'd much rather have a kid sniper, a guy that skates like Pavel Bure, or a 6'5 power forward with a nasty scoring touch.  And that's just at forward. @ Number9, the Wings brass was saying all year that Ouellet is the most NHL ready of them all currently.  Those plays you're referring to, you see those every time he laces 'em up.

Byfuglien could drink the entire NHL under the table, and then drive his boat home.
