#2530441 What's best for Mantha?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 07 July 2014 - 02:52 PM

Euro...please see the post above yours...I am not bashing Canada in anyway or discrediting the Gold's....


What is with people being so combative today? Sheesh!  Babcock is the issue and Holland plays along.  If this is not the issue, then why are UFA's shunning us when they never used to?  Simple answer, Holland offers less money and players don't like Babcock.  If Babcock was such a super great coach and all players he won Gold with admire and long to play for him, then why are the ones that were UFA's the 8 years knocking on the door to get here?


...and yes, I would take that bridge! I could double the fee and make a little extra money!


You can't be serious....


You take extremely hard-lined stances on the most ridiculous, knee-jerk (doing my best to use polite words) opinions and then get all surprised and defensive when everybody (but Richdg or Degra55) disagrees with you.


It's like clockwork around here...

#2530177 What's best for Mantha?

Posted by metalkorn on 05 July 2014 - 09:32 PM

No way should he start in Detroit... he has only played Junior.

Mackinnon is a class above this kid, numbers don't make a player in the Q - he put up good numbers, but I wouldn't say he is ready.

Martin Frk was playing with Mackinnon and was lighting it up for the Moose and then he turned out to be terrible for Grand Rapids and was buried, not sure why anyone expects that Mantha is going to make the team, would be cool to see him play a pre-season game perhaps but even if he scored 3 or 4 goals in a game I still think he owuldn't be with the big club Day 1... it wouldn't be good for him.... we aren't Edmonton.

Doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results?  That's the definition of insanity.


I've never understood this saying as it's not even close to the definition...


We're building a system and it takes time. Taking a look at the players coming through our system I'd say it's working.

#2530043 Can Z and Pav do anything to protest? (not that they would)

Posted by number9 on 04 July 2014 - 08:45 PM

The real question is: Would Dats and Z ever protest? No. They aren't short sighted hot heads like most of LGW

#2530061 It's too bad about us having Weiss...

Posted by Barrie on 04 July 2014 - 11:00 PM

Just think what 50 pts from Weiss, and a healthy Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Franzen, and Helm would mean for us next year. A 1st round exit against Boston wasn't a bad thing, guys have a chance to heal.


Add to that, full seasons from Nyquist and Jurco.

#2529821 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by matt198913 on 03 July 2014 - 03:51 PM

I think there is plenty to be excited

#2529815 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by freshy on 03 July 2014 - 03:21 PM

Young guys had to step up HUGE at the end of last year. Nyquist isn't going to score every game when teams start keying in on him because Hank & Pavs are out with injury. The kids are gamers. They will infuse drive in the rest of the team and we should be much better with them all starting on the same page together at camp.

#2529635 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by joesuffP on 02 July 2014 - 08:41 PM

The guy has won at all levels. An NHL rookie playing for Sweden in the gold medal game. A big part of Calder cup win. 28 goals in his shortened rookie season. All in a matter of two years. This guy could be a special player in the league. If he was bigger everyone would be all over him and think he's going to be a superstar. I'll be happy with him continuing to prove ppl wrong and fly under the radar. Much like this Datsyuk fella

Wow, it's amazing to think just because we didn't sign an over priced UFA (the Niskanen deal is horrible), people think we have a bad team. We're good, and going to have a better season with guys healthy and our young players a year older. Boston, Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto, so far, are worse then last year, and Buffalo and Florida still suck!

#2529766 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by themcityblues on 03 July 2014 - 01:30 PM

If Quincey could play like he did the last 3-4 weeks of last season, I'd actually be pretty happy with him on the team.

Posted by freshy on 02 July 2014 - 07:57 PM

Man oh man. So we are garbage now, is that it? Give me a break. How many other teams did Matt freakin' Niskanen(?!) not sign with? Are they all garbage too? We struck out in FA's this year. It happens for the MAJORITY of the teams in the league. Quincey will fill a role for two years and be fine doing it. He knows the system & obviously has a degree of faith in him with Holland AND Babcock. All those clamoring for a new GM who are you going to replace him with? Who has been better in the last 10 years keeping a team competitive?

I don't disagree with the premise of that article, but Ryan Lambert has bashed the Wings at every opportunity for years. He's a Blackhawks slappy that somehow got a job pretending to be an objective writer for Yahoo. I knew who had written that article just by reading the part posted without even opening the link.

Lambert is a clown. Helene St. James never finds anything wrong with the Red Wings and Lambert never sees anything right. Both are hacks.

#2529470 Well...at least we're not Philadelphia. Giroux Arrested.

Some nuggets from twitter:

@Whoabot: claude giroux is the captain of the feel-adelphia flyers

@philabright: Claude Giroux's Canada Day really set the bar for Patrick Kane on this July 4th. #Merica #WeBelieve
