#2584323 Red Wings have 5 players with at least 20 goals

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 March 2015 - 03:13 PM

 

For a minute there, it looked like both of those guys might have been able to do it too.  Franzen started out really strong before his injury, and Weiss was going like gangbusters for a week.  Dang. 

 

Fixed.

I believe during some pre-season interview Holland said he was hoping for a best-case of 6 or 7 20 goal guys. Funny thing is, if I rememeber correctly, he figured two of those cats would be Franzen and Weiss.

If anything we should be looking to package a couple forwards for a defenseman, not a defenseman for a forward (especially one that will be 36 going into next season). Our forward depth is unbelievable, and our defensive depth is lacking.

Our defensive depth is great. The quality at the top is what's lacking. That'll be a problem at forward soon enough as well. We should be looking at trading quantity for quality in both areas, though that is far easier said than done. 




#2584204 Jordin Tootoo's Goal

55fan....why would you be watching some Devil hockey?  The most boring form of hockey on the planet.  Even when the Wings are playing them, I think about whether I want to watch.

 

Not really sure if you've noticed, but Detroit's shot suppression game isn't exactly exhilarating to watch.  Last I knew we were at, or near, the top of teams with fewest shots (for and against) per game.  These days it looks like we're not too different from New Jersey.

That was a nice goal.  I've been watching some Devils hockey since he went there.  I can't believe that we couldn't find a place for him when he was here.  He does much more than just pester and fight.

I think he would be great on the fourth line with Miller and Glendening, jurco on the third line and Andy out. Unfortunately Tootoo almost seemed to be trying too hard to fight on our team which in the end probably was his downfall


#2580242 Franzen on IR

So, the forum that decries the guy every chance they get because he's lazy, sucks, and doesn't try hard enough... is now going to complain about the fact that he's actually going to try to come back from serious injury?

Seriously?!  Come ON!

 

I really shouldn't be surprised, but...

Do you really think the Wings would allow him to hit the ice if he weren't ready to at least give it a real shot at coming back?

 

On top of that -- None of us are doctors... so don't pretend you know what's best for his career, his long term health, etc. despite anything you may have learned in HS Physiology/Anatomy classes.  You don't know. 

 

AND if he's at least trying to get back out there on the ice for his team, with his horrible boat anchor of a contract (not actually) you should give him around of applause for trying.

Duncan Keith may be a Blackhawk, but he's a true hockey player.  He made the wish of a little girl come true.
 

One of my best friends had CP and so this clip has some special meaning to me.  Kudos to Keith for making her day.

Gah, seeing those uniforms is like being forced to stare at the advertisements placed above urinals in the a men's bathroom.

#2577868 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

I'm hoping Zengerle comes up so we have three Z's and a Q: That's gotta be some sort of edge.

In Scrabble?

I like marchenko but I think he'll be the odd man out

Two r-l pairs are too appealing to pass up trying at least once.
I think babs will try it.

Pick becomes a 2nd if we reach the finals. 

 

I don't understand this year's deadline strategy.  Not at all.  I don't hate it, but I don't get it. 

 

What is there to get? We picked up 2 legit veteran players and gave up prospects who are clearly not even close to playing in the NHL. We gave up a couple of picks which we can afford to do considering our prospect pool is pretty damn deep.  It's all about what you can afford to give up and what you need.  We needed another right handed d man and got one.

Nyquist sucks in the top six. He's a sweetheart, but a waif. Let him eat up third line opposition while the adults do the hard work against the big boys.
