#2417597 Draft position?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 04 June 2013 - 12:52 PM

if there's a big skilled forward to pick at #18, there has to be something wrong with the player. shouldn't last that long

Not in a draft this deep.  That's why a bunch of guys on here are ok for a change with trading our 1st for 2nd rounders.  Max Domi is set to go like 25th or something like that and he's damn good.  Small, but good. 

McCarron just had a great tournament, and is developing nicely. He is more of a project type that has a high ceiling. He would be a nice pick at the end of the 1st through the 2nd. I wouldn't take him at 18, but if we traded down and got a late 1st and an extra 2nd he would make a nice combo with Fashing, and a skill guy like Lehkonnen since last I heard he is falling.

At 159 pounds he's more getting knocked down rather than falling.  He'd be fine in the 3rd/4th round, but for 1-3 we need big nasty bastards.  6'3 or bigger.  Mantha would be nice in the 1st round, McCarron in the 2nd if he's around and the biggest dude left in the draft in the 3rd please.  Time to be as big as the Kings and Bruins and punish other teams as opposed to being the one out there getting pulverised constantly.

I am not so sure that Q will be let go after next season.  I guess it all depends on Cola and how he plays and stays healthy.  I am not so sure that both Q and Cola walk, that leaves two spots to fill.  I am all for not having Q on this team, but I am also not so sure that with all the rookies this past season on D, that Holland will feel comfortable in another year having two more unproven rookies on D again.  I think if Q does not get traded that, unless Holland has another player on his mind, he re-signs here again and Cola leaves...


Kronwall - Ericsson

Dekeyser - Quincey

Smith - Kindl

Lashoff (with appearances by Sproul)


That will be your 7 defenders the year after next.  Of course, barring trade's.  I said in another thread that Q would be the most likely traded from the D, but if not him, then Kindl...but I really think Holland is happy with his D and probably won't touch it unless its a deal he cannot refuse...

When we have the likes of Sproul, Ouellet, Backman, Jensen, Nicastro, Almqvist, McKee and such coming up through the ranks, we don't need to keep signing ok Dmen for a couple years to bridge gaps.  We need to give the spot on the team to the best player that we have.  After next year, the best Dmen we have will likely be the first 3 on that list that will be fighting for 1 or 2 spots on the Wings.  So as much as I like Smith, he better prove his worth this year coming up and Lashoff should show he's a shutdown guy, or they can be packaged for a forward and Sproul, Ouellet and Backman can take the reigns.

Pens cause of iginla 

When Iginla stopped a pending trade with Boston and Calgary got dirt for him in a trade, Iginla can choke on a turd.  


Go Bruins!  


I've been wearing my Lucic shirt about the city snarling at Penguins fans.

Can we say that Flip is done as a Red Wings

Hopefully yes.

If only Cleary had the skill to match his heart, cause at least he'sf****** got one.  He's been our best player tonight, and I don't like the guy so that's as unbiased as it gets.

Ha ha ha.

I was waiting for you to laugh at that.  Kronwall makes a "rookie" line change in game 7 and has been no better than Smith in the playoffs, but no one has been ragging on him at all.  He's a vet with an A on his chest.  He should lead the charge on the blue line.  If he's leading by example, Smith has been following 100%, but getting more points.

#2414266 Good Luck Wings.

I think the success of that line has a lot to do with the 3rd-tier match-up. I agree with the whole "if you're going to do the work, you're going to get the ice-time" sentiment, but as good as that 3rd grouping is, Brunner is still a defensive liability and if they weren't going to worry at all about matching up and Chicago got a consistent diet of Toews-Hossa-Sharp against say the Smith pairing with Brunner trying to watch Keith or Hjarm creeping in the slot, things might get hairy very fast.


Of course, none of this matters. Babcock is smarter than all of us. He'll do what he is going to do and I trust him implicitly. 

 Babcock is just gonna make weird angry faces at Quenville all game and throw him off.  He'll be so lost Jamal Mayers will be on with CamelToews and Bickell.

#2414249 Proud of our boys

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 29 May 2013 - 07:45 AM

I love me some Wings and I am quite proud of them this year.  Especially for not castrating the officials in game 6, which they had all the reason in the world to do.  I love how they're always calm, cool and collected.  It makes it a little easier for my blood pressure to go down when crap like game 6 happens.  Let's hope we see an all ings WCF!

#2414143 Late 2nd PP in Game 6 is microcosm of biggest need.

What team couldn't use another goal scorer? They don't exactly grow on trees. Who is available who fits this bill?

Well, to answer that question, look no further than my avatar.

#2414069 Fraser's take on Penalty Shot

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 28 May 2013 - 03:05 PM

Pav's "trip" on Toews?


Abby thrown face first into the boards by Seabrook in the 1st while on a PP?


Kindl called for interference and then later in the first a Wing was interfered with even more so with no call?


Consistency is all we ask for.

And where was Brunner's penalty shot this series when he got the corkscrew in the hands on a breakaway, or when Roszival two-handed Abdelkader's stick out of his hands on a breakaway that was pointed out in a .gif in the last GDT?  Therefore, Mr. Fraser, the call was flat outf****** wrong and by this series' standards isn't even a penalty. 

#2414005 Good Luck Wings.

The officiating has been terrible all series

True, and the officiating in the NHL is a joke on the whole, but in game 6 there was a difference.  The refs chose a side.  Playing favorites didn't happen noticably until game 6, and it was a disgusting display. 

#2413931 Good Luck Wings.

Games 1-5 the team that worked harder won.  Game 6 is why to so many the NHL is not taken seriously in the realm of major sports.  The Hawks are a great team, and I've always been a fan of theirs, but the fact that they needed the refs to help them win that game is complete garbage.  If the refs will in fact "let them play" in game 7, keep it fair and make calls both ways.  The penalty shot call was garbage in a series perspective, cause if that's a penalty shot, then Abdelkader and Brunner should each have a penalty shot this series.  All we ask for is across the board consistency, and game 6 broke that.

It gives one of the best coaches in the game some time to work his magic.

Doesn't matter how much magic Babcock has if his players aren't willing to put forth the effort needed.  Hold the 1 goal lead.  You have a top 5 goalie behind you for f***'s sake.  Give the guy a hand.
