And Tampa won the Cup when?

Is that truly your only barometer of success? I think the original point was well taken -- Stevie has complemented his drafting with good moves in free agency and trades. Kenny "kicks tires" and mostly fails, but defaults to then saying building through the draft is the way to go anyways.

You need balance to build a contender. Especially when you draft mid-to-late first round for two decades.

And lol at "game over" it's 2-1 with almost two thirds of the game left to play.

Back away from the ledge.

I'm really jacked up for this game. The Bolts are arguably the best team in the East; the Wings can make a real statement here tonight.

The Bolts have a scary amount of depth, and are building a team that will be great for a lot of years. It is a team that has as much, if not more, talent in their system as the Wings do, with the exception that their stars are still very young. Winning doesn't happen over night, and Stevie Y has done a lot of a job with that team. They will become the class of the East sooner rather than later.


Stevie deserves mad props. He's built a scary-deep team that's only going to get better, and better, and better, and better. They're going to be a top team for a long time.

That cheap power play goal by Tampa is the only difference. I really hate that rule and it should be changed. It should be exactly like icing, can't change and a face off in your zone.

Yes because bringing back the tie is better than a shootout LOL. Some people.

Ties weren't bad. They got rid of them to appeal to rebel Americans who think ties are somehow unacceptable. Either wway, getting rid of the shootout doesn't mean the only other portion is ties.

In a thread full of predicted losses I'd have never thought you'd be the one predicting a win  :lol:
Gonna have to dig deep, but I think they could pull it off. Howie needs to have a strong game. Having Quincey back will be huge. Cleary with the game winner just to make LGW explode.

I never predict a loss. Tampa has won five straight coming off a big win last night and quick turnaround to Detroit. This could be a let down game for them. We've seen the wings play great hockey agaimst elite teams I believe they can beat anybody.

Quincey ready to return Sunday vs. Tampa Bay. Howard is starting in goal. Said he was late for practice due to "little trouble with alarm."

#2546520 What happened to Calle Jarnkrok?

Posted by FlashyG on 04 November 2014 - 10:00 AM

At the time of the trade he absolutely was considered by most Wings fans and anyone who followed the Wings to be our number one prospect at any position. He was certainly ahead of Sheahan, who was considered by most people before last season, to have been another first round bust. He was definitely considered to have a higher ceiling than most guys in our system, even a highly regarded player such as Tatar. And to be honest, even though I wouldn't trade Tatar for Jarnkrok and I am glad we kept Tatar, I would not be at all surprised if Jarnkrok is the better player in 5 years from now...


At the time of the trade Jarnkrok was most certainly not anywhere near the #1 prospect in the system by most fans, or by any reputable publications.


He was well behind Mantha, Nyquist, Tatar, Mrazek. Jurco, and Sheahan. He was in a group along with Ouellet, Sproul, Marchenko etc. He was closer to 10th than 1st, especially considering the Wings brass felt Glendening was more ready to play in the NHL over him.


As far as the rumors about him wanting to go home, he did eventually admit that he had considered returning to Sweden when he realized his chances of cracking the Wings line-up any time soon were remote. I don't think any sort of move was imminent though and I don't think he had vocalized those wishes so they likely had little to no impact on the Wings decision to trade him.


I think he was dealt because he wasn't going to be able to crack the roster for years and they had a pressing need for a center right then, having lost their top 5 centers to injuries at the time.

Quincey is hands down earning that contract, and e has earned it the last few years

Need another goal. Outshooting them 2:1. Too close. We know how things went in Philly.  


Outscoring them 2:1 too.  Just sayin'  :tounge:

Anybody else think that the "euro twins" should really be the "euro triplets"?  Kronwall plays so well with D and Z.  He reads them just as well as they read each other.

Too easy.  Kindl's looked fine this year and Lashoff is steady (even if he hasn't improved, which hopefully he has a little).  No reason to lament this, aside from the obvious "low hanging fruit" aspect. 


No reason to lament this other than their play last season when paired.


And Kindl has looked fine because he's playing very protected minutes (with the exception of last night when they had a 4 goal lead in the first period and Q got injured).  With Quincey out and Lashoff in, he'll likely be less protected and have to pick up more minutes, or at least split them with Lashoff.


So I'm basing my opinion on actual information not "low hanging fruit."
