Brian mcgrattan once thought he could play professional hockey, but then he tripped and fell...

Am I playing right?

Glad for him the west should be a lot of fun,
McGrattan, Lucic, Jackman, Reeves, Scott, Bourdeleaus, Bollig, Prust all in the same conference tough guys are making a comeback loving it. Seems like teams have learned from this season

Most will be in the ahl before Christmas

#2619925 Wings‬ sign left wing Eric Tangradi

I have no problem with fighting in hockey....guys like Clark Gillies, Bob Nystrom, Terry O'Reilly and early in his career, Probie,  were good hockey players who could fight when they had to.   When you start seeing stiffs like Colton Orr and John Scott out there...guys with no skill...squaring off with each other as a side show to the game, I have no use or patience for that.

#2620005 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by Caanis Cooper on 10 July 2015 - 03:55 PM

I think Quincey played amazing this last season. I would be totally against moving him at all. I know we need to make some cap space room now, but we just can't lose his toughness and good defensive play.

#2619962 Gustav Nyquist signed 4-Year Deal $4.75 mill AAV

Posted by e_prime on 10 July 2015 - 01:58 PM

So this deal will take him into his 30s. If it is under $5M I will be surprised.

4.75 -- not too shabby.

#2619640 Over/Under for Larkin's time as a Red Wing in 15/16

Posted by wings87 on 08 July 2015 - 02:18 PM

Last year this team got embarrassed by Boston, this year they were better but after watching Stanley Cup playoffs is obvious that the Wings are far away from cup contention. Tampa will only get better and the West is well just loaded.

Anyhow just don't rush Mantha, Larkin and hope that Pasha can stay healthy.

They lost to Boston yes, but they didn't get embarrassed. Other then a few empty net goals and 1 really bad game the series was close. Tampa is good, they should continue to progress. It's also possible some players had career years, and will take a step back,and as always injuries happen. My point being is that a lot factors into a franchises continued success. Wings at the moment are upper middle of the pack with room to grow, it's not all so bleak.

Other then that, if Mantha and Larkin are ready they should play if not let them continue to develop.

#2619211 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

I would personally like to thank crap teams who need to grossly overpay sub-elite talent in order to keep them there. Now every player of that calibre can use them as an example at to become grossly overpaid arbitration. Thanks buffalo, Columbus, Ryan O'Reilly, and Brandon saad!

...but as pointed out by many on the board already, Detroit typically gets a deal done with players that choose arbitration before it ever gets to an arbitration hearing.  So who cares about those teams that can't get things done without overpaying and greedy money grubbing players.


Nyquist going the route of player elected arbitration does two things:

1. Shows that he wants to stay a Wing and is willing to negotiate in good faith that a fair deal will get done.

2. Keeps other teams from offer-sheeting him.

Hahaha saads deal though. They know they don't get Kane and Towes with him right? :P

The disney.com love is strong  :lol:

Hey man, if he continues to progress like he did last season, hell become a franchise center.

#2618795 Depth chart for RW/Griffins

Posted by kliq on 02 July 2015 - 08:24 PM

What is with "need" to get rid on Quincey. They guy played good last year and is a pretty good guy to be on our third pairing. I think some people have just branded him in a certain light, and it doesn't matter how he plays they will always see him that way.

#2618783 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by joesuffP on 02 July 2015 - 06:12 PM

I have a feeling Sheahan is going to pass up Richards as the 2nd center sooner rather than later.

Would be ecstatic. Richards is just going to push Sheahan harder

#2618766 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 02 July 2015 - 04:28 PM

I get your argument but saying he's 3rd in playoff points and played 100 games less than #2. Who is a defenseman is odd, defenseman aren't supposed to put up the kind of points lids did, that's why he was so special among other things.

But yes please retire #91 soon

I get your point, and no argument on lidstrom he's amazing but just stating a fact the guy played 100 less games than the 2nd place lidstrom and still ended 3rd all time and if he played just another 2-3 years before leaving he'd probably be the redwings all time playoff points leader

He just deserves to get his jersey raised , one of the best redwing players of all time

#2618734 St. Louis announces retirement at age 40

Posted by WingsAlways on 02 July 2015 - 01:52 PM

I would call him a class act and say that I've enjoyed his career, but my nose would grow.


It's difficult to respect a career when you can't respect the person behind it. 

#2618696 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by TheXym on 02 July 2015 - 11:36 AM

Despite his acrimonious departure (to some), he had quite a few phenomenal seasons in the Winged Wheel. If he'd stayed a Wing he'd be up there already. First ballot HHOF is a huge feather in the cap and speaks to the league wide respect for his on ice performance, and IMHO carries significantly more weight for the argument than if he'd taken as long as Housley to get in. I'm thinking it happens, as the Winter Classic appearance seemed to help heal some of the old wounds.

Couple notes from Jeff Blashill's availability: Said he likes Smith's offensive potential and will give him shot on PP (in camp) ...
