#2678302 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 19 June 2016 - 09:44 PM

 

Lucic? Are you out of your mind?

 

I still remember that piece of s*** spearing Danny between the legs...no, thanks. Guys like him are a disgrace to the game and I don't want any of them on the team..

 

You must have wept when the Wings traded for Chelios.

That doesn't amount to anything. Edmonton says hi.

 

Also, not to be rude but you explained our prospects in your opinion, not actual facts or projections. We have no idea where these players development will be in a couple years.


Thank you sir!

 

First, you're trying to move the goalposts. I said Toronto has a brighter potential because of high draft picks vs. Detroit's current prospects. Were Stamkos to base his opinion on potential, he and most everyone outside of Detroit would see Toronto as a better prospect.

 

Second, the Blackhawks and Penguins say "hi" to your Edmonton cliche.

 

Third, which of these opinions (your word) aren't true?

 

-Larkin did fade as the season progressed

-Mrazek has been inconsistent but brilliant at times

-Mantha's stock has dropped since he started playing in the AHL

-Sproul and Oullette are predicted to be middle pairing guys

-Nyquist and Tatar are small and soft. Boston in the playoffs says hi.

-AA has been called Helm with hands by many posters here

 

Finally, it seems you don't like facts when they contradict your opinions. Not to be rude.

Isn't all of Toronto's young guys just "wishful thinking" too? Or does that only apply to us?

 

Larkin: looks like a gem, but faded as the season progressed. Still best of the bunch.

AA: Helm with hands. Does that make him Kris Draper then?

Mantha: stock has plummeted since being drafted and playing with actual adults.

Mrazek: inconsistent though young and has shown flashes of brilliance.

Defensive prospects: all projected to be middle to bottom pairing guys.

Nyquist and Tatar: Soft, small complimentary scorers.

 

Yes, Toronto having the first overall pick and a bevy of high picks for the next couple of years is more enticing than the Wings' prospects and average young players.

Well said, Helmethead. I had to like your post ... before it gets pulled.

#2675651 Doug Houda hired as an assistant coach

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 10 May 2016 - 06:11 PM

 

He played for some of those fun Wings teams in the late 80's.  

 

I met him and Stevie Y. at a Little Caesars opening near my home in '89 (?). I said "Hello, Mr. Yzerman. Hi, Doug."




#2674443 This hits the nail on the head......

Nonsense. This is why the article is a "fanpost" and not by one of the actual writers of WIIM:

 

"Lifetime fans of the organization – especially those of younger generations – no longer have confidence in the team. It’s clear that this is exactly what Holland intended"

 

Yes, Holland has intentionally sought to undermine fans' confidence in the team. Dumb fan post is dumb.




#2673249 I Hate Jeff Blashill because ...

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 23 April 2016 - 08:19 PM

Was listening to Sirius NHL radio...Apparently Marc Crawford wants to make a return behind an NHL bench...Is there anyone else out there that would love him behind our bench?

 

I'd take him in a heartbeat!

 

Blasphemy.




#2670782 Fixing this mess....

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 18 April 2016 - 03:29 PM

I feel like I'm one of the few people around here who don't think we look too bad going forward. And that our "down years" aren't all that down. We will be as good or better next year than we were this year. Even without Datsyuk. Two years from now we will be really good. We've already got our next first and second line centers in the organization. We've got two higher end goal scorers in Nyquist and Tatar. We have quality supplementary power forwards in Abby and Mantha. And we've got a future franchise goalie. Our defense needs work, and even its not as bad as people think. We are in a position now where our old guys are too old, and our young guys aren't quite there yet. What we need is time, for our next generation to mature. That's it. Chasing guys like Backes or Lucid would only put this team in the same spot its already in...just two or three years from now.

All I want from Holland and company is to commit fully to the kids in the off season, and improve the defense if possible without losing anything significant.

 

You also thought the offense would really improve under Blash.

Which would ownership and management prefer?

 

(A) Make the playoffs, earn millions of dollars in playoff revenue even for a first round loss, and keep the Streak alive.

 

-or-

 

(B) Miss the playoffs, end the Streak, and move up 4-6 spots in the draft.

 

Anyone who thinks the Wings do not prefer option (A) needs to reevaluate.

Glad this happened. Is Cuthbert still available?

I wish Tangradi would get a 10-game stretch on the Wings' 4th line. Let's see what a big body with some snarl can do on this team.

Waive a player, gets claimed: Holland sucks!

Wave a player, clears: Holland sucks!

 

Never change LGW




#2645830 1/2 GDT : Red Wings at Buffalo Sabres, 1:00 EST

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 02 January 2016 - 10:02 PM

Not every team had that amount of money to spend on players, and a lot of the big name guys came here to team up with the crazy amount of big named talent already on our team to win a cup.

 

How would you know, you were in diapers back then. :P

 

On a serious note, I just get tired of people (not you) blaming the lack of a salary cap on the Wings' past success. Yzerman, Fedorov, Lidstrom, Konstantinov, the Grind Line -- these core players were cultivated by the team, not mercenaries bought in to win a championship. The Wings became a winner because they sucked in the 80's and drafted well into the early 90's. Even Shanny coming to Detroit was the result of a 1st round pick.
