#2639624 Bigger nets ?

Posted by sleepwalker on Today, 04:16 AM

As was already pointed out, the rink size will not be changed.  It would cost tens, if not hundreds of millions of dollars to convert all the NHL arena surfaces, not to mention the millions in revenue that would be lost due both the time it would take and the seats that would be lost.  Not feasible.

I honestly think Helm can do everything Abby can but better

Except score. I also think Abby has been healthier? Has he ever missed an extended amount of time? Honest question.

#2638953 When does Larkin get the C?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 23 November 2015 - 12:09 AM

Don't forget Abby. That cradle-to-grave contract indicates the team believes he is essential to the team's future success.

I mean, he kind of is.

Last year when we were on a tear without datsyuk and then when abs went down the team looked deflated. He's more vital to the success of the team than most would ever give him credit for. That and he's going to be expected to bridge the gap between the greatness of the legends with the kids. Which is important.

#2638273 What are the chances Larkin wins the Calder ?

Who cares, look at the past few years in who one this thing and did they really do anything after that???  Yzerman didn't win it, Zetterberg didn't win it and look where they're at compared to who won it those years.

I hate Pulkkinen. He's more of a passenger than Wesley Snipes was in that one movie.

#2638731 Jurco on Conditioning Assignment in GRs

Posted by DickieDunn on 21 November 2015 - 10:11 PM

Yup, the reason people are hyping Jurco is because he has unbelievable "tricks in a driveway"... or "tricks on YouTube"... It has absolutely nothing to do with his prominent skill level at every single level he's ever played at...

Why are so many people fixated on him correcting the reporter on "at most", not "at least" 2 weeks. That's a fact. He WILL be down there for 2 weeks at MOST, even if he weren't producing. The fact that he is producing at a great clip, only betters his chance of finally another getting an opportunity to crack the Wings lineup...

Except at the NHL level, that is

Sadly for us this is going to end Quick

Hey it's the predictable Frankgrines' lap-boy reverence of the opposition post.

I, personally, think the Kings are going to "Petr out" over the course of this game.

that datsyuk line is retarded....

AA should have stayed and Pulks should be sitting. Anyway...
We got this

GO WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#2638180 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by frankgrimes on 19 November 2015 - 04:15 AM


The Koala. There were some really good seasoned coaches available, The Koala being one of them!


I'm not giving up on Blashill nor am I saying to fire him (yet). But I am saying that he had better be finding his way very fast. This is too good of a team to be barely floating around .500 hockey. Babcocks s***ty Leafs are now approaching .500 and this team is far and away better then Taranna


Koala chose Edmonton and I wanted him too but sadly he wanted Edmonton.


How is this team too good to be floating around .500? They've added a PP QB in Green and a good third liner in Richards other than that so far the best player on this team has been a rookie named Dylan Larkin. Kronner has taken a step back, and Pasha will need some time to find find his hockey-gear again. It's been said a few times now but it is true the best coach in hockey had troubles, getting them into the playoffs so if a team isn't significantly improved - which this team isn't! - how is a rookie coach supposed to have them play better? Even as someone who wanted the koala he would have struggled too because even if coaches are having the same philosophy their will always be differences in terms of system - so a learning curve has to be expected.


The problem is, some people went into this season with way too high expectations and now that they are facing the reality they are starting to freak out. I mean, the Oilers are last again so fire McLellan, the Bolts aren't in the playoffs by now fire Cooper?


This thread also shows how blessed the Wings fans have been with Babs and his system maybe now even the Anti-Babcock crowd will appreciate his accomplishments (especially the last few years), even more. Do I think Blashill will be as great as Babock? No but I think he will be a good and maybe even great coach one day..not even can be a Scotty Bowman or Mike Babcock.

Tomas Jurco has this amazing talent of not being visible on the ice despite being a good sized 22 year old who should be able to run to the moon and squat pyramids.

I don't know why maybe he's injured maybe he's bad or maybe he's just bored.

We need to get a grip on this guy. Hopefully some games in GR shows what's up with this individual.

#2637833 11/16 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Senators 3 (OT)

Posted by kickazz on 18 November 2015 - 04:24 PM

It's Bill. 


He just supports Smith because he's his biggest fan.


Logical men are wrong when they point out all the statistics and visual proofs of Smith's screw ups.

The coach is bad because he doesn't play Smith. 

The coach can't figure out his best players because he doesn't play Smith (ignoring the fact that the coach plays Dats, Zet, Nyquist, Tatar etc perfectly fine).

Also somehow Holland sucks because Smith is scratched.


Blah blah. 


But then Bill also posted this (#321)




So who knows....?

If we were 12-2-2 and leading our conference, your points would hold more weight. But we are in 8th and most of our wins have been against weaker teams. And we havent gone very far in the post season in the last 5 years. Perhaps taking the same viewpoints as our coaches isnt always the right thing???


Confused, why would his points hold more weight if we had a better record?


So you're essentially saying that Babcock AND Blashill have some hidden gem in Brendan Smith and that they've both failed to recognize it? Many of us disagree with the actions of coaches and management all the time, but this isn't like they're playing Datsyuk on the 4th line. Smith has been mostly terrible his entire time here. Even Smith's defenders admit that... but assert that they think he will be better in the future. This is why he plays where does. He's bad. He's done absolutely zero to prove otherwise... so I don't know what you're seeing him.

I havent seen anything from Jurco that ever said he is ready for the NHL

#2637766 The suprising rise of Jakub Kindl

Posted by number9 on 18 November 2015 - 12:16 AM

Youre not wrong, brah. No worries.

But to get back on topic, Kindl is a good offensive defenseman. He just needs a lot of work in his own end and needs to play with some grit. He's got the size.


That could be said of a number of our players bruh. You remind me quite a bit of a past member here that went by the name of Hillbilly, he did well here and so will you bruh.
