#2486706 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 25 February 2014 - 06:40 PM

Is Brett Lebda available?


#2479678 Cory Emmerton waived

Posted by Z and D for the C on 01 February 2014 - 05:26 PM

...to be called Cory?


Something we're sorely lacking now.

GOOD JOB HOLLAND


#2472376 Filppula

His point numbers don't surprise me, but his goals sure do. Who would have thought that only 16 players would have more goals than him? If he keeps up his pace the past 10 or 15 games, scoring 40 isn't out of the question. We'll see what happens when Stamkos comes back, though.


#2468385 Blockbuster deal?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 29 December 2013 - 11:27 PM

Howard is amazing for most of his career, has a bad stretch of games, and now people want his head. Unbelievable.

Bert-Dats-Z
Franzen-Helm-Alfie
Nyquist-Andy-Tats
Abby-Glend-Tootoo/Miller

Cant be stopped. Skill, speed, playmaking, scoring, in the top 3 lines. And then a rock solid 4th. Let weiss recover. With everyone healthy we actually have a pretty deep roster.

 

Isn't something that we've learned over the past 5 years is that just because it looks good on paper (which is even debatable) doesn't mean that it will perform.




#2466470 12/19 GDT: Flames 2 @ Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by Z and D for the C on 20 December 2013 - 02:41 AM

YES FINALLY WE BEAT A TEAM...BUT THEY'RE 13TH IN THE WEST....and we couldn't do it in regulation...




#2466142 Healthy vs. Injured

Posted by Z and D for the C on 19 December 2013 - 11:46 AM

Team 2 would certainly score more goals.


Now I'm not a hockey genius, but if you score more goals, you win right?


#2457480 11/23 GDT: Game 24 - Senators 4 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by Z and D for the C on 23 November 2013 - 11:07 PM

Franzen is a huge diver. Since when is this new?

I hope we use our buyout on this failure of a hockey player. Frankly I'd rather be rid of him more than Cleary.

And that's hard to do.


#2456794 ****(Stuff) no one says about the Wings

Posted by Z and D for the C on 22 November 2013 - 06:49 PM

Did you see that fight last night?


#2456352 11/21 GDT: Hurricanes 3 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Z and D for the C on 21 November 2013 - 09:42 PM

Wings can't even score their own goal on 2 minutes of a 5 on 3.

#2456076 Other Examples of Bad Starts?

Seven.


Okay. Nevermind. This team is doing great!

The reality is not nearly as bleak as LGW often makes it out to be.


We haven't won a game in the past 8. That's pretty damn bleak.


#2450657 stephen weiss

Don't see how it matters which guy is better than the other.


I'm still just angry about losing Lilja.

Weiss is not the total loss you so ardently try to make him out to be.


I'm not ruling out Weiss. I haven't been able to watch that many Wings games this season (school/no cable at my house), but from what I've seen he generally looks good. I don't doubt the points will come. My only argument is that he will never do better than Filppula - not because Filppula is way better, but because he will succumb to the same problems Filppula had: linemates who are either lazy or can't make plays. Filppula current production is what I've always expected out of him and he is doing it because he is actually playing with decent linemates.


#2449539 Franzen believes hes playing well.

Posted by Z and D for the C on 01 November 2013 - 06:59 PM

Franzens contract is fine but if he doesn't pick it up the DetroitRedWings are going to buy him out.


I really hope they do. His contract while playing isn't so bad but the cap redemption thing would kill us when he retires early.


#2448535 Pray for Pekka Rinne

Posted by Z and D for the C on 28 October 2013 - 05:02 PM

That's horrible, hope he recovers. I'll be praying. I just wished there was something I could do to actually help...
