#2539679 10/9 GDT : Bruins 1 at Red Wings 2.

I sort of feel bad for some of you that the Wings came back and won that game... I mean, I'm sure there are a few that had paragraphs ready to post about how "terrible" we are, but to their disappointment, we managed to outplay a "better" Bruins team in every facet of the game. We pulled out a huge win to kick off the season, and people are still spewing the same old s*** about the same old players... Get over it!


The top two defense pairings looked great, Quincey played solid, Kindl didn't make any catastrophic mistakes, Zetterberg still doesn't look himself, but still played great, Franzen played great, Abdelkader scored a goal on the top line (off his ass, how he scores a lot of his goal...), Helm didn't look too out of place on the power-play (great assist on Nyquist' goal), the kids looked great, the 4th line was very solid, the penalty kill was perfect, although the power-play struggled at the start, they still produced, Howard looked great after that first gaff by Ericsson...


We played with great structure and skated as a unit, covering positions, fore-checking and back-checking, all in all, it was a great game and we looked much faster and hungrier through the entire game. Yes, I'm well aware that it was only one game, but it was a game that we won, so quit the bitching...

#2539673 Kindl on the block

Posted by krsmith17 on 10 October 2014 - 08:12 AM

Yup, Quincey had a terrible game... Do you even watch the games? Or do you just repeat the same old drivel after every game not knowing what really happened?...

I'll agree that they had one bad shift together where they had trouble getting the puck out of the zone, but other than that, Quincey was solid. No he wasn't spectacular by any means but that's not what we expect from Quincey, we just need him to play solid defense, which he did.


Also, Quincey does have some trade value for sure, and it wouldn't surprise me if a couple teams have some interest in Kindl in a few weeks as well.

Q was solid last night... Let's hope he can keep it at this level

Franzen only has 2 pts? What a POS

Anyone else want to admit that Quincey had a really good game?


He showed some good offensive push as well. If he plays like this year i'll be happy.

I don't get why Babcock won't try playing Gus with Weiss. He is wasting Weiss's talent. Babs split up Gus and Hank and has Gus playing with Anderson now. I am sorry but Weiss is way better than Andseron and I want to see what that combo looks like. 


I think its because he wants to see Anderson as much as possible in the preseason. The preseason isn't about the best teams its about getting the best looks at your players.

Another one of these ridiculous threads.... everytime Babcock farts there seems to be more speculation that he is not happy (even though he says he is) and he is going somewhere (probably Toronto because they are already planning their Stanley Cup Parade).


The other hilarious thing is that folks believe that replacing a battle tested and proven winner/veteran/warrior/genius (Mr. B-cock) with a green eared but eager rookie (Blashill) is somehow going to ward off massive debilitating injuries to key players, improve goalie consistency, prevent hall of fame legends from ever retiring, strengthen backup goalie's groinal area, add testoterone back into the balls of mules AND be that which attracts every key free agent to want to sign up for all of this (deep breath) will undoubtedly improve things.


Babcock + Holland + Health + Experience = Success wait and see

#2536667 Training Camp Thread

Posted by wings_fanatic on 20 September 2014 - 04:26 PM

Someone in the comments section in the link Dirtydangles posted noted that Weiss has looked really good out there so far, despite the stats.


To add to that, Pav did not get any points today either. I guess we should bench him? I don't understand why some Red Wings fans need to be so negative all the time. I am more than willing to give Weiss another chance to prove himself. He is a heck of a player and lets see what he can do healthy this year before we dump him in freakin training camp!

#2535243 Alfie wants to play

I thought this thread was about Alfie?

Don't be ridiculous, all threads are about Cleary.

LOL Cleary is absolutely an NHL calibre player. If he comes to camp healthy, he should without a doubt be capable of producing as a third line support guy. The big question is whether or not he is finally healthy... I don't like this signing any more than any other Wings fan, but I do have a ton of respect for Dan Cleary and for the Wings management (Ken Holland) for honoring their handshake deal from last year. I find it very difficult to believe that some Wings "fans" are actually hoping Cleary fails.f****** ridiculous... I hope he proves all the haters wrong and plays 50+ games and puts up 20+ points.

#2533565 Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

Posted by VM1138 on 02 August 2014 - 06:59 PM

Inflation happens. Kane and Toews set the new standard, and I'm sure their agents had them do it on purpose. No biggie. Everything goes up over time. People acting shocked and annoyed are being ridiculous. Did they think the cap would go up and everyone would just keep making their old salaries? The world doesn't work like that.

#2533326 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 29 July 2014 - 08:35 PM

According to that Czech article someone posted in another thread his choices were 2, 3, and 5.


Well three puts him right into his prime, and if he were to get low-balled, he has an arbitrator to fall back on.  I see the appeal of a 3 year deal.  This signing is a solid one in my book as I think Tatar will turn out to be very consistent and solid for the team.

#2533257 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by Euro_Twins on 29 July 2014 - 08:18 AM

ok, ok, no more Diesel... :lol:
I said its too much so he better get 20-30 goals to prove he is worth it. If he never gets 20 then its way over payment. Closer to 30 and he is worth it for sure! In the end I am glad he is still a Red Wing! Go Tatar!

So 30 goal scorers make less than $3million? I understand the sentiment but your argument is invalid. If he scores 20 goals he is worth the contract. If he scores 30 he is performing way higher than his contract.
