#2620429 New Ultra-Enhanced Video/Renderings of the Arena District

I think he has a good point but Detroit is in a unique situation. A) it's more than just a new arena (it's a whole new neighborhood) and B) It's going in a blighted area. It's not just replacing something in the city, it's adding to the city. That is the difference.

Big loss for Michigan and #cawlidgehawkey. Adds to Detroit's impressive forward depth. Big trade comin
Big Trade Coming? hmmm

Probably complete speculation. "Detroit has a lot of forwards, so a trade would make since therefor it means that there is one coming even though I have no real evidence".

#2607156 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

This is insane. Let the guy go. We've made it past the first round once in the last five years, we obviously need some changes.

Agreed. Babcock is completely overrated. He has won at all levels, yeah, but he's had completely stacked teams. I could win at the Olympics if I had Canada's team. The Red Wings have completely underperformed with him as head coach. I don't even want Blashill if he is just like Babcock.

Pretty stupid comments by him no matter his intentions. There are much better ways to motivate a player than by completely dismissing him after one half of one pro season.

#2592816 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by Z and D for the C on 13 April 2015 - 08:06 AM

It appears that Babs has Mrazek in mind because he started him in the final and crucial game of the season.  Not like Howie needed the rest.  And plus, Mrazek played well, he got a shutout.
So, in light of the above, I put all my chips in and say that Babs puts Howie in net for game 1.  


I think its petr, thats why he started sunday Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

It could also mean that he wanted to give Howard, his starter, extra rest before the playoffs started or that much less chance of getting injured. Or that he wanted to get one last look at Mrazek to help decide.

It's going to be Howard though, there is no doubt. Mrazek getting a shut on in the last game of the regular season against one of the worst teams really doesn't mean all that much.

Posted by Z and D for the C on 02 April 2015 - 09:14 PM

this team is spoiled...the only way to change is to miss the playoffs

No, we need a new coach. This team has no leadership right now.

Incidentally, Zetterberg looks absolutely horrible.

The first two periods were golden. What happened?

The Red Wings can't close a game is what happened.

I think it's absolutely hysterical anyone thinks Mrazek should be our #1

This should really put the whole "Howard can't keep us in a game" thing to rest.

I think the Wings have been playing good, but Gus can't stop s***. He's probably going to lose us this game.

I hated the pass by Zidlicky more. Everyone was moving forward and he throws a lazy pass backward that Weiss had nowhere to go with it.

I hated Gustavson deciding to take a nap even more. I also hated when he tried to give whatever Boston player was in the crease a hug instead of trying to stop the puck on the second goal.

I hope this is the last game he starts. Bring up Mrazek if we need to.

Love you Ozzie, but it was nice to watch a game without Mickey in which I didn't get to hear the "very very" or "really..really" on every color call.

Also, hearing multiple tones was nice.

Ol' Ozzie was having a little trouble counting to 4 it seems but really started picking up steam at 5.

Should have given two penalty shots. Two players are free, two penalty shots.

#2538594 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 06 October 2014 - 04:21 PM

I wish we would trade either Helm or Abdelkader or a pick or two. They're both getting pretty redundant. If one of them were let go, I'd like to see:


Zetterberg Datsyuk Helm/Abdelkader

Nyquist Weiss Franzen

Tatar Sheahan Jurco








Not putting Weiss in the lineup would be incredibly stupid. I think he played well in the preseason despite only 1 assist. It took Hossa a little bit to mesh with the team, it'll take Weiss even longer and not even having him start the season would be a huge blow to his morale. Thankfully I think Babcock is just sending a message, he'll be in.


Just like demoting Weiss after not registering a point while given third line minutes with Kevinf****** Porter on his wing. 


How is it that he didn't lead the team in points with opportunities like that?


Babcock has a history of giving 2nd line centers s***ty wingers and being confused when they don't produce.
