#2650713 All Star Skills Competition

Posted by NerveDamage on 31 January 2016 - 09:47 AM

I'm confused, maybe someine can enlighten me because I only made it throught the 1st 45minutes or so. Were there 2 shoutouts? One silly one and one legit one? I saw the Chewy & Jagr impersonation one but not the one with The Kid Dylark.

Also, is Josi really suppose to be fast? Cause he was smoked!

Yep there were two different competitions involving shootouts. http://www.nhl.com/i...s.htm?id=800324


The first was the Honda shootout challenge,in which fans vote for the best shootout gimmick. And the second, Discover NHL Shootout, which was divided into 3 sets of 6 skaters and 1 goalie (18 skaters and 3 goalies per conference) and had 2 minutes to take as many shootout attempts as they could. In which Larkin ended up 2-2


Round 1


Round 2

I would love to see the player Smith could become if we could just remove his shriveled peanut brain...

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.

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.
