#2685170 New arena construction updates

Posted by SetecX on 28 August 2016 - 08:44 PM

Hey guys. Almost 1 year away from completion now. This update here ( http://wingsarena.tumblr.com ) is probably the last one I will be able to have where you can actually see into the arena.


I shall keep providing updates though. Crazy that 1 year ago, the place looked like this:



#2682903 Should any of #91, #13, #40, #30 be retired? Poll/Discussion

Posted by VM1138 on 11 July 2016 - 02:16 PM

It's LGW. If it's not hyperbole it's not worth typing.

#2681797 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by kickazz on 01 July 2016 - 08:16 PM

Lol he actually does replace Datsyuk though.


1. Defensive center

2. Will put up 50 points just like Datsyuk would have if he played another year (guaranteed he wouldn't have played all 82 games).

3. Really good at shootouts. 


The other positive in this is he can still kill penalties while Datsyuk no longer did.

#2678299 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

Let's retire the name datsyuk. No player named datsyuk can play for the wings again. They will have to legally change names.

#2668310 ECQF Game 1 GTD: Red Wings at Tampa Bay Lightning, 7:00 ET

You know what this team can handle TB, they hung with them and minir tweaks and they can win next game!

They can hang with any team. They can get close to winning. They can almost hit the net.

What they can't do, is finish.

#2651696 9 (NINE!) player trade involving Phanuef

Saw it coming a mile away. All nine players.

One bad game and we're totally down on Howard? I think Mrazek is the future and Howard should be gone after this year, but Howard's been more than solid for the most part this year. I don't think any changes to the rotation are really necessary at this point.

For anyone interested, I started a blog to follow the construction progress of the new arena, via my drone.

#2588548 4/2 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 02 April 2015 - 09:35 PM

And put in the guy who has done the exact same? Might as well see what you have in Mrazek so you can make a decision in the offseason. Team isn't doing any damage this post season anyways.


He's done the exact same but with 5 games left it seems like the best thing is to get your starter going and hope he finds his game, rather than relying on a 23 year old who hasn't shown consistency in the NHL yet.  


I like Mrazek, but the kid is showing he's not ready yet. 

#2573447 2/21 GDT : Red Wings 7 at Dallas Stars 6 (OT)

Posted by rick zombo on 21 February 2015 - 11:22 PM

Am I the only one who finds this constant "Tank It" joke not really all that funny


You realize that we’re talking about a group that thinks “we like our team”  has been top shelf wit for the last 5 years. 

#2539634 Kindl on the block

Posted by Echolalia on 09 October 2014 - 09:31 PM


Kindl played a real live nhl game and allowed 0 goals while he was on the ice and had a shot on net and a very wise 2 minute penalty that would have def been a goal and lead his team to victory please trade with us now

#2538222 10/3 Preseason Game: Detroit Red Wings vs Toronto Maple Leafs

I'd rather Franzen just shut the f*** up rather than do an interview about all the other great things he does besides scoring.  Like what?

#2509849 Gus & Tatar almost traded to Calgary per McKenzie

Posted by dirtydangles on 15 April 2014 - 05:01 PM

If this is true - which it may not be - it shows how little Ken Holland really knows/believes in his prospects. Jarnkrok is killing it over in NSH and these two are playing amazing in Detroit. You can't just go offering up young players as trade bait before you see what they can do in the NHL - its stupid. If Jarnkrok had put up 9 points in 12 games in Detroit prior to the trade his value would have been much higher and he would be valued similar to Sheahan currently. Bottom line - give prospects a legitimate NHL chance to solidify their value before you go and ship them off.

#2508938 Babcock and Holland Talk About Stuff

Posted by Guest on 12 April 2014 - 06:55 AM

I'm not sure what's confusing about it.  If the season had gone "as planned", Bert, Sammy and Cleary would all have regular roles, probably in the top 6, they'd all have PP time, even though they may not have produced effectively. The Wings would still have been floundering, but we'd hear all about the veteran leadership, and these guys have been through the battles, he has faith in them, can't rush these guys from Grand Rapids etc. Guys like Tatar and Nyquist would have been eased into the lineup with a few minutes on the 4th line with Drew Miller and Patrick Eaves and a healthy scratch every other night with Babcock unsure if they were ready because they can't produce.  Sheahan and Jurco would have never gotten a sniff of the big club.


Had Babcock said last summer we're going to give the kids regular jobs and go in a different direction, we wish Dan Cleary well with Philadelphia, we thank Samuelsson for his service, but we have decided to use the compliance buyout on him and Todd Bertuzzi will be our guy off the bench, THAT would have been a bold move for the Red Wings.


The old vets were pathetic, the massive amount of injuries forced the Wings to do the call ups and the kids delivered.  So it's not really going out on a limb to say, hey these kids have jobs now and the other guys won't get theirs back when they're "healthy" (wink, wink).
