#2634363 Looks like Tyler Bertuzzi is a ****** like his uncle

Call him up.  Maybe he can toughen up our 4th line.

Is that a gif of tats or the fan? 


The combined attitude of both.


That fan embodies what Tatar is thinking at all times.

I guess we need the stick not the carrot.

Marchenko looks great tonight. If he keeps this type of play up, then I'd be worried for ol' jangly-brained Smith. He might be the odd idiot out.

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 October 2015 - 09:01 AM

Stop and think back for a moment guys, think back over at least the last 10-15 years.  Outside of the 01-02 season (which was marred at the beginning by the 9/11 attacks that took some of the "fun" out of the season openener,) When was the last time you have been more excited and giddy or even seen so much interest and hype for the opening night of a Red Wings season? We've had coaching changes, we've had rookies debut, we've had UFA's making their debut, but just reflect on all that is going on today, and that is exactly it, ALL OF THAT is going on right now! Today! Not only a new coach, but outside of Granato, a new coaching staff and philosophy, not only is a rookie debuting, but a 19 year old local kid who just got drafted 16 months ago, PLUS the rest of our young players like Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Pulkkinen! We're excited for a new life for Smith and Kindl, Howard has regained his pre-injury play, Mrazek is here to stay, no longer do we have an average back-up that may see some spot play once in a while.we, once again, have a legit 1a and 1aa goalie tandem.  We have the UFA right handed  offensive d-man that Holland has coveted for years and years. We have no less than 8 kids in GR (if not more) who can be called up and step right into the NHL if needed and contribute.  We FINALLY have a team where the best players will play and not lose out to the veteran just because of seniority.  There is a lot of buzz in Hockeytown this season opener, take a big inhale of it and breathe it all in, this, my friends, is the beginning of our new generation of a Red Wings super team.  We witnessed Yzerman, Fedorov, Lidstrom, Kozlov, etc... all grow together as a team and it seems we have a core today that if kept together, can stay together (just like our 90's team) for a long, long time.  This area has not been this excited in forever...


Take it all in my friends! Let's Go Wings!

Ya Baby! It's here! It's a new world, it's a new outlook, it's a new era, it's time!



In the last 16 months, Dylan Larkin has gone from High School/USHL to Michigan to Worlds to Grand Rapids to Detroit...What a rise to the apex of what his father first dreamed about when Dylan learned how to skate! Haven't we all dreamed of this with our son's, it must be indescribable to feeling right now! Remember when you first tied his skates? Remember him skating with the help of a chair? My oh my, let the tears flow, you have earned it! Congrats to the Larkin Family!

#2609630 Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

Posted by krsmith17 on 22 May 2015 - 09:29 AM

I am very excited to see what Blashill can do with this team. But what I am most excited about is there are no guarantees where players will line up on the roster... Will Ericsson remain on the top pair? Will Smith get a look on the power-play? Will Weiss have a chance at the 2nd line center spot? Will Jurco be in the top 6(9)? Will Pulkkinen be utilized better in the offensive zone (left side faceoff circle), Will Abdelkader / Helm remain in the top 6 (not necessarily saying they shouldn't...)? Will Ferraro / Callahan get a look on the 4th line? A lot of question marks... Going to be an exciting training camp. Can't wait!!!

I asked - and he answered. Jeff Blashill just told me, "I want to be the next head coach of the Detroit Red Wings." #Blashwatch

#2602663 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by kipwinger on 28 April 2015 - 10:41 AM

Bowman was with us until we won the Cup in '08.


Since '10 we haven't gotten through the second round.


As a "special consultant".  You know who else is a "special consultant" to the Red Wings.  Chelios and Lidstrom.  It would be a stretch to attribute the team's successes or failures to "special consultants". 


You're reaching dude. 


You can search the entire world over, and you will not find ANYONE who's a better NHL General Manager than Holland.  He's got the hardware to prove it.  He is, literally, the most accomplished executive in the business.  Period.  Fin. 


So I'm not really sure what you're trying to do here, say that he should be replaced with someone better?  There isn't anyone.  Demonstrably so.  Or are you saying that he's really not that good, and that his underlings did all the work?  Which would be silly, because the team was arguably MORE successful when he was the underling. 


No matter how you cut it, he's the most competent person at his job...by af****** mile. 

#2605457 ECSF: Tampa Bay Crying Coopers vs. Montreal Complaining Canadiens

Posted by 55fan on 01 May 2015 - 03:44 PM

The series goes to 7 games.  The first 6 are 1-0.  All goals are scored when the puck bounces off someone standing in front of the net pointing a finger at an opposing player and whining about something.


By game 7, they have all learned to stand and cry without pointing.  In the intermission before the 7th overtime of a 0-0 game, Steve Yzerman visits the locker room and asks to speak to Filppula.  He has brought with him a medium who looks deeply into Flip's dreamy... blue... ey...........


Oh, sorry.  But.  Those eyes...


She asks him to recall a previous life.  She sees the colour red.  He blinks.  He stares at Yzerman.  He sees the Cup Rings on Yzerman's hand.  Where has he seen that before?


Then it comes to him!  The heart of a Bolt remembers!  It is transformed into the heart of a Wing! 


And what happened next?  Well, in Whoville, they say, that Filppula's balls grew three sizes that day!


He skates onto the ice, wins the face-off, takes the puck himself, skates between the Canadiens players who are crying about an unfair puck drop.


He scores, winning the series for the Lightning.  A breathless Cooper asks him, "How did you do it?"  Filppula proudly replies, "I'm a Red Wing!  I cheated."


Then they go on to get blown away in the next series and we all live happily ever after.  The end.

They came to play tonight.  Didn't do their way.  Enjoyed the season.  It wouldn't shock me to hear Z and D are both battling injuries.  As always, an interesting off season.  More than anything, I'm just bummed no more Red Wings hockey until October  :(  I wanted it to last just a little longer.

Game 4, man.

This sucks. Feel like the Wings deserved better tonight, but they blew their chances previously to wrap up the series.
