Love the frantic pace in the third, but gotta cut down on the dangerous passes coming out of the zone.

The most shocking thing is that we have played half a game and Marchand hasn't acted like an ass yet.

Share constructive criticism all you want, I do the same. Whats funny is that one minute you see posts flowing in about how quick the wings look and the upside and this and that, and as soon as ONE goal goes in, the opposite happens. I'd be willing to bet as soon as the Wings tie this and take the lead, people will go back to talking about their quickness and start planning the parade.


Fans are fickle by nature, it's just something I've grown used to.

Lidstrom and pasha would get tired.


There's a joke in there somewhere, but I don't think it would be appropriate for this forum.

No, Ericsson has. Giveaways in his own zone that is. Nothing to save for Howard.


Terrible giveaway, good shot, atrocious goaltending.

In college I used to stay up the night before drinking ice beer and watching all my favorite hockey movies before skipping class the next day and getting to the bar...early.  I tend to think that would be frowned upon these days.

 

Not if you lived in a Simpsons episode.

But his body is so big! It's enormous. Like the biggest body we have. And you know how Zberg and Franzen love big bodied boys....


To be honest there's something creepy about your comment... It made me uncomfortable.


#2539110 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

So, Weiss is just not playing but Glendening, Andersson and Nestrasil all are? Weiss may be a complete bust yet, but I still think he has more to offer than any of those three. Give him a chance at least.


I'd be interested to see what Weiss can provide when healthy. On the other hand I've seen what Andersson can provide when he's healthy and I'm not all that excited.

It's unfortunate how predictable this team has become.


#2537553 Babcock " I dont think it will be my final year here"

Posted by wings87 on 29 September 2014 - 10:59 AM

I don't mind him staying on long term, I don't think there are many coaches who could of gotten more out of this team the past 2 years than what Babs got.


#2537220 Did the Wings change the font on their jerseys?

Posted by wings87 on 24 September 2014 - 07:07 PM

I have a solution:  Play naked.

 

That'll defiantly get rid of the hit from behind. Not to mention give new meaning to the term "dangle".

Real fans don't care about the opinions of swedes like Federov.  I get my info from good ol' Canadian boys like Mike-y Redman and Don Cherrios.

#2536351 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

Posted by wings87 on 16 September 2014 - 05:43 PM

Good deal, although I think a longer term might have been better. It would have let the Wings save some cap space for the future, now if he continues to progress he will probably earn 5-7 mil in 2 years after current deal is up.  

 

Now thinking about it the hold-up might have been Holland trying to sign DD to a longer deal at a smaller cap, and DD may have been happier with a shorter deal--which gives him the possibility to make more after this deal is up. I don't know-- I'm just happy it's done.
