#2682080 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by Z and D for the C on 03 July 2016 - 02:44 PM

Way to early to begin line juggling given that there is probably a trade in making.


I feel like we've been saying that for years and it never happens.


#2681882 Who should get A?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 02 July 2016 - 08:36 AM

No one is fit except for Dan Cleary, so we'll have to bring him back.


#2680993 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Posted by Z and D for the C on 01 July 2016 - 10:09 AM

Helm scored 26 points playing with our best players last year..if he ended up at 3.85m/yr how the hell much did he think he was worth?

Holland makes the occasional nice move but these kind of signings are just embarrassing.


#2678295 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

Posted by Z and D for the C on 19 June 2016 - 08:06 PM

Sadly, I can see them not retiring his jersey because he failed to honor his contract. I don't think there's been any franchise player in the Red Wings history who failed to honor their contract. Correct me if I'm wrong though.


Even if he did, should he really have his number retired? It's close..but he wasn't anything like a Lidstrom or Yzerman. Maybe if he led us to another cup.


#2673929 Dan Boyle Curses Out Reporters

Posted by Z and D for the C on 26 April 2016 - 08:05 PM

Curses out reporters? Tirade? I think that's over exaggerating things. He's pissed and is showing some emotion, it'd be nice if someone on the Wings showed some emotion over their losses sometime and maybe there wouldn't be so many of them.


#2672908 ECQF Game 5 Post-GDT: at Tampa Bay 1, Red Wings 0 (TB Wins, 4-1)

Posted by Z and D for the C on 22 April 2016 - 07:02 AM

Like last year, the wings deserved to win this series,


LOL, if you lose a series in 5 games you don't deserve to win anything. Being 'close' to winning a single game is one thing, but if you are 'close' in 5 games and lose 4 of those, you're not close to anything but a few rounds of golf.


#2662984 3/29 GDT - Red Wings at Canadiens - 7:30 PM EST

Posted by Z and D for the C on 29 March 2016 - 07:42 PM

Their dignity consists of 24 straight playoff appearances. If you want that gone then I guess...

 

Yes, I do. I'm so sick of hearing about the stupid streak. Who gives a s*** about the streak? It's like that's all the wings are playing for. The streak means jack s*** when this team, even if they do somehow make it into the playoffs can't hold any lead and has no compete level. The streak means nothing when we'll get dominated in the first round.

 

Miss the playoffs and start playing to win in the playoffs instead of just extending the streak and calling it a day. They say they're not playing just to make the playoffs and that they want to win the cup but it's complete bulls***.




#2645147 Goalie Battle

Posted by Z and D for the C on 30 December 2015 - 12:23 PM

I feel the same way. Howard KILLS this team.

 

What is Howard doing that makes his team not score any goals? When he was pulled it was 0-4 and the team was playing like complete s***. Saying that all four of those goals are saves from a "top 10" goalie is completely ridiculous. A) Like you're psychic and B) All goals let in goals like Howard let in. Sure he wasn't amazing but his team was terrible in front of him.

 

I think Mrazek has been slightly better but jesus some of you blow everything out of proportion.




#2639721 Larkin for ...

Posted by Z and D for the C on 27 November 2015 - 08:07 PM

I wouldn't trade Larkin for anyone in the league without some incentive (like a pick or another player). Why do it? It's his first time playing in the NHL and he's leading our team in goals. He's 19.




#2637196 11/14 GDT : Red Wings at Boston Bruins, 7:00 EST

Posted by Z and D for the C on 15 November 2015 - 01:16 AM

 

This is the problem. How do we fix it? Is it about making more space - and we do we need for that, more speed? I don't know. But hitting the backboards and the posts seems like it's becoming a theme.

 

Teams always have way more shot attempts than actual shots, it's the way of the game. The problem isn't their shot accuracy it's that they have terrible possession numbers. They're at the bottom of the league in shots attempts per game as well and it's because they never have the puck because they can't complete a pass 80% of the time.




#2633026 10/24 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Canucks 2 (OT)

Posted by Z and D for the C on 24 October 2015 - 10:58 PM

Has anyone noticed that the Wings can't even complete a pass? It's like the second they get the puck on their stick they just have to throw it to the player furthest up the ice.

 

I'm worried it's just Blash's system at this point. The players are hustling, they're not being lazy, they're just making terrible s***ty plays. Defensive zone coverage is awful and no one has any puck support. All other teams have to do is rush the puck carrier and we do something stupid with it and turn it over every time.




#2631038 I think this might be finally it for the Mule, Sadly

Posted by Z and D for the C on 15 October 2015 - 06:49 PM

I really feel bad for him, I was actually excited to see how he does this season, I was optimistic. He seemed really energized to play in the few games he was in. He shouldn't play again until he goes a few months without symptoms instead of just a couple weeks.




#2629567 10/9 GDT : @ Red Wings 4, Toronto Maple Leafs 0

Posted by Z and D for the C on 09 October 2015 - 09:38 PM

Babs would have convinced Holland that The Kid needed to stay in the A.

 

At the very lest he would have never been playing with Z on the first line. I'm so glad we have a new coach.

 

It looked like a different Wings team. They hustled their asses off and looked truly hungry. I can't wait for the rest of this season.




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

Posted by Z and D for the C on 13 July 2015 - 09:26 PM

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".
