#2556699 12/13 GDT : Red Wings 1 @ Maple Leafs 4 *MOD WARNING POST 198*

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 13 December 2014 - 10:08 PM

Wings are no different than last year. Same crap. Three straight losses to the Maple Leafs that everyone thought they sucked.

 

Remember Samuelsson? Bertuzzi? The terrible version of Weiss?   Jordin "pressbox" Tootoo?  

 

Injuries and inexperience will be the big question marks for the Wings this season, but this is not the same team as last year.

What's your opinion on guys like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, or John Adams?

Consider outcome of Madela's actions and (for instance) Washington's and you may understand you cannot suggest comparing these...

I'm not sure why anybody thinks it is dumb for a reporter to ask a hockey player about Nelson Mandela when said hockey player is attending a ceremony specifically to honor Nelson Mandela. 

 

If Justin Verlander attended Margret Thatcher commemoration night, and when asked said "Ms. Thatcher is the best player the WNBA has ever seen, and I loved watching her play when I was a kid", he would be a fool.  As is Bernier, clearly.

Flight from Atl to DTW 300

Seats 8 rows behind opposing bench 200

Buying wings stuff over 200 at Hockey Authentics

Rags getting beat priceless

Coming back to Det after 5 years also priceless


#2553773 Alfredsson Set to Sign 1-day Contract with Senators

Posted by Number19 on 04 December 2014 - 06:24 PM

I have so much respect for Alfie, the guy doesn't hang on like Marty or Jaromir he actually listens to his body.

If Stevie listened to his body we wouldn't have the 02 cup or his final 3-4 years. I don't have any less respect for Broduer or Jagr if they want to keep playing the game they love and teams are willing to sign them. Maybe less respect for the GMs who offer them contracts (i.e. Holland and Cleary). Now if players were playing while putting their life in jeopardy that's another story. Fortunately that doesn't seem to happen in this day and age.

Sorry to disappoint you hopeful gents, but my boss is a Wings fan, so he said I could get out of work early for it  :siren:  :lol:




#2553739 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Posted by marcaractac on 04 December 2014 - 02:46 PM

 

Yes. He could only win one here from 2006-10 when this team was great. But, of course, in your world he'll win at least THREE with another team.

 

This team was only great for 2 seasons under his tenure. 2007/08 and 2008/09. 2006-2007 they were building up to that cup winning team. After 2009 age started catching up to some guys, injuries to others. So they gradually made the roster younger and are building it back up again. 

 

That's 2 seasons where Babs had a legit contender to coach. Won a cup in one, and f*** what happened in the second. Not to mention he got a young, inexperienced and injury riddled team into the playoffs the last 2 seasons. 

 

A huge part of the reason the kids are playing so well is because of Babs. People need to realize that. The guy is an absolute pro. Never throws his players under the bus, never whines about refs, and he brings out the best in his players. He also commands respect from his players. Invaluable qualities.

Posted by marcaractac on 03 December 2014 - 09:25 PM

The only bad thing is, is that those who do want Babs gone won't realize how big a mistake it would be unless it actually happens. So I definitely hope to have the few Babcock haters to keep on hating and being frustrated for another 4-5 years lol




#2553256 Alfredsson Set to Sign 1-day Contract with Senators

Very classy move by the Sens. Does anyone else feel the same I do? Wake up Mr. Illitch and Ken Holland! Bring Fedorov home for a day so he can officially retire a Red Wing! Prove to the everyone that you are the Class of the NHL! Fedorov is the BEST Russian to ever grace the NHL, he is easily top 3 Red Wings of all time. I don't want to hijack the thread, but I just think that the Wings should do the same for Fedorov.

 

Congrats Alfie on a great career, thank you for allowing us to have you for a year, but thank you for not taking up a roster spot from one of our kids, especially if you weren't 100%. Thank you for not being greedy!

 

 

(on a side note, along with Feds being brought HOME for a day, I would love to see the Wings "retire" Bob Probert and Shawn Burr from the NHL in a nice ceremony.)

 

I've never understood the idea of signing just for one day so you can retire with your old team.  Does anyone even remember whether a particular athlete did this gesture or not?  

 

I sure as hell don't.  Seems rather pointless.  




#2553069 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by rick zombo on 01 December 2014 - 08:41 AM

Said it before, saying it again... we still need to make a move so that we can consistently rotate in a prospect on D.  XO having to go back down because Smith is back and healthy, and there's no room on the roster, is an issue.

 

Lash, Kindl, or KFQ need to get moved for this reason alone.

Preferably Kindl. Then, KFQ.

Especially if we make a trade and upgrade a D-man, preferably RH, I'm fine with that too.

 

The only way you ever trade 'KFQ' and keep Lashoff is for cap reasons. I don't own a pair of Team Quincey pom-poms, but he's waaaaaaay better than Lashoff.

Wings are within a point of the top spot in the east.

 

[sarcasm]

We should have tanked it for sure.

[/sarcasm]

 

The kids are playing great.  The vets are playing great.  This wasn't a excellent all around effort, but we did what we needed to do to win.

It's crazy that this is just now Dekeyser's 100th game.  He plays like someone with a lot more experience than that, especially given the minutes he gets.  The Wings are lucky to have him.
