#2650188 2016 Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by joesuffP on 26 January 2016 - 10:32 AM

I think Holland should be trying to move Ericsson for anything he can and resign Q... It's no secret that DD and Q play their best hockey together and are our best pair

Hypothetically, if the wings got Stamkos, he would not be a sniper with the wings. Blashill's system thwarts any chance for a sniper to score. All one has to look at is Pulkinnen. The coaches cannot find a way for him to be open on a pp. someone wrote a while back to copy Washington's pp. how is it that Ovie can be free all the time, blistering many shots at the net. Pulpy can't even get one. The pp coach needs to be replaced immediately.

I think Pulkinen's struggles in the NHL have less to do with the coaching system and more to do with Pulkkinen.

It's like most Wings fans are afraid to admit it, but I believe Jurco's played like absolute s*** since his 1st rookie callup

They're a modern dynasty, why wouldn't they talk about the Hawks glowingly? Everybody talked about the Wings like that when we were in their positions.

#2648328 Miller Out With Lower Body Injury

After he got hurt and our penalty kill dropped, anyone who says he isn't important to our team, or that he can be easily replaced needs to have their heads examined.

Dudes a warrior too, I thought he'd be blind after that skate to the face last season.

save some for the playoffs haha ;)

Yep, I've got two left...
I'll also have to learn to be much more specific with the wishes.

AGAIN, Holland signed him for 4 years. Why would he do that if he is trying to trade him? Makes zero sense.

Because he said 1.5 years, not 4 years.

Enjoying their day off after a win

Jimmy was like "...hurry, take the picture before Petr comes in and takes my spot"

Penalty kill will vastly improve with Miller Time.

In Toledo? He's 22nd on our defenseman depth chart.

He will be in the NHL

The parity is the strong point of this league. Something none of the other leagues have. 


Now if only they could somehow attract more fans in the United States... 


It's boring to watch, teams can't keep their developed teams together aren't able to add key pieces I wouldn't call that a strong point, more like the opposite.

He stands out as a defenseman in the canadian national team, which is a big feat. Hicketts has serious skills, let's hope he can handle NHL size.

It took Cleary a couple weeks (5 games) to whip the team into shape. ;)

He currently has less goals than Callahan, frk, and tangredi. Clearly something is amiss, and its not usage, he's getting the minutes.

Nobody is saying the guy is a bust, but something isn't right and you can't blame everything but the guy himself.

#2641510 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by krsmith17 on 07 December 2015 - 07:32 AM

The way this team is playing, I'd be shocked if we don't finish top 2 in the Atlantic. Overtaking Montreal will be tough for sure, but as of right now they're only 7 points up, and we have the game in hand. I see Ottawa and Boston falling off way before Detroit, and Tampa could turn it around but they'll be in tough trying to catch us, the same way we are with Montreal. They're 5 points back, and we also have the game in hand on them as well. We survived a pretty grueling early schedule, with back to back games virtually every weekend, and it should only get easier from here on out (in regards to the schedule, not necessarily the competition...). We have our Western Canada road trip out of the way, but we still have our California trip coming up in January.


There's no doubt that Blashill is a great coach but regardless of who was going to be behind the bench this team has been a team on the rise for a while, and I don't see us slowing down going forward. It may look genius to have Nyquist and Tatar clicking, but they're two really good young players, and they're just entering their prime now. I don't really think it should be that much of a surprise that they're playing well together. I do still think they'd benefit from playing on separate lines but as long as it's working, I guess it's not much point in mixing things up. If we do end up finishing top 2 in the Atlantic, you'd have to think Blash would be in the conversation of Jack Adams candidates. He definitely has a shot at being the first Red Wing coach to win it since some guy named Scotty Bowman exactly 20 years ago...
