I don't remember your posts being so difficult to read, before.

I'm really excited to see how this plays out. After a day of thinking about it, it could work really well. Helm might get a breakaway per game if he plays with D and Z
As for the 4th line debate, I agree with Krsmith. Andersson had one good year, but IMO doesn't bring enough even to warrant 4th line playing time. With his limited offensive upside, he's better suited to the 3rd line, but now we've got Sheahan. And I'd rather have Glendening on the 4th line. There's a reason he played against some of the toughest lines in the league last year. He might have stone hands, but so what? His career potential is a 4th line shut down guy, not a 20 goal scorer. Yes he needs to improve his face-offs, but he's well aware of his strengths and weaknesses.

Yeah, and Datsyuk trailing Helms breakaway! It could work.

I think helm is under utilized on the 4th line. He can haul the piano better than Abby with his incredible speed. I like that babs is trying new things and I got no problem with helm playing with Z and D. Very defensively sound and helm's speed will create a ton of space
On that note sounds fantastic on paper but very crucial to stay healthy!

That's what Babs figured when he saw that video of Helm hauling Tootoos wife on water skis..

It's not a question of keeping Jurco down for those guys, it's a philosophy of getting him used to being the go-to guy first in GR, being the main man, the one we count on day in and day out to bring the rain, to pick up the bar tab when the game is on the line-"Guys, I got it".

Once he's played that role , with that mentality, long enough in GR, it will be more possible to develop that mentality in the nhl.

what about the Nyquist-Zetterberg-Franzen line? I remember those three doing good as a unit and lazy balls actually showed a bit of drive finally.

Gives the option to try

Datsyuk Weiss Alfie

Nyquist Zetteberg Franzen

Jurco Sheahan Tatar

Miller Helm Abby

I know you wouldn't want this thread to be about you, but how you doing anyway man?  I know its been a while since you were diagnosed.

Wow, thanks for asking.

I'm doing great. I can still hold my kids, play with them in the pool, and zipline with them at Whistler.

My parents and my brothers family joined us for a week in San Diego, then all flew to our home in Washington. We just took them to Whistler where we all, including my 75 yr old mumsy, did the longest tallest zip line in North America . (The kids did the bobsled run too, along with my wife)

My 13 yr old niece is putting together a little vacation vid, check it out (the older kids are my nephew and nieces, young one is Olivia , Lilja seemed to be sleeping a lot)

AND my life long friend from growing up in Michigan did an awesome Ice Bucket Challenge vid (he's Air Force) :

The LGW'ers need to get on board in honor of our buddy, T. Low

This is such a surreal position to be in. Thanks PlayMaker and everyone.

#2534061 Confused on the direction of this team going forward

Posted by T.Low on 12 August 2014 - 02:17 AM

Or maybe you should've realized that's what I meant cause I only said it what seven times seven different ways.

Girls, please! I know its been a long boring summer for you both, but just hang in there, you'll finally be starting Junior High in less than one month!

#2534003 What Might Have Been: Gretzky to Detroit?

Posted by T.Low on 11 August 2014 - 11:32 AM

I figure if they were able to hold on to Lucky Luc, Detroit should have been able to keep Yzerman. But that still doesn't answer the question...

#2533220 Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

Posted by T.Low on 28 July 2014 - 07:43 PM

My predictions?
Half the roster is injured by November and they barely scrape into the playoffs again.

Where's the "Doesn't Like this post but knows it's true" icon?

#2532308 Alfie wants to play

Posted by T.Low on 16 July 2014 - 11:49 PM

If Holland was willing to re-sign useless Cleary to another AWFUL contract, then he better be willing to give a contract to Alfie. I will be SHOCKED if he does not bring Alfie back since Alfie said he wants to play.

Nothing shocks me any more...well, I guess I'd be surprised if this team excites me at all next season.

#2532264 Red Wings & the Media

Posted by T.Low on 16 July 2014 - 02:23 PM

I make about one post a year and I have to waste it on this garbage....
BOOO, these reporters are reporting on the news and not on whatever their opinion might be, BOOO.
This is being played like politics and a perceived lack of interest in bashing management is being equated to condoning said moves.
These are not the same things, everyone is taking mental shortcuts to the conclusion and bypassing the idea that media SHOULD report ONLY the facts.
People are so quick to forget that because it is sports, it is journalism too, adding opinion taints that.
Let bloggers speculate, speculation is what you people seem to desire, but is also the reason these speculators don't have credentials, because they only want those credentials to make their asinine opinions seem more valid when they are arguing in their own comments section.
Nobody knows what a good signing is until the season is over and we all have 20/20 hindsight, your intuition is not proof of any fact and your anger is not a catalyst for change. All I read when I see this garbage is a lot of spoiled fans who even after making the playoffs for 23 years in a row and winning more Stanley Cups than any team in a quarter century, think they could do better and sit around bitterly whining about a few depth moves being made.
Grow up Hockeytown!
29 other teams lose the cup or on said free agent, I can't wait for the article to come out saying player X didn't want to come to Detroit because of the entitled fans, well I guess I could buy a website, call myself a blogger, write the opinion myself, use anonymous sources and then ***** because no one takes me serious.


I need to be informed of "what" happened, not what to "think" about it. I can do that on my own.
