#2534849 Datsyuk or Fedorov?

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 23 August 2014 - 07:26 PM

Datsyuk much more complete player to me. Although I can not imagine the number Federov would have put up now.

 

Have people forgotten that Fedorov played defense, scored 56 goals while winning the Selke, and often played with Shawn Burr on a TKO line shadowing the opposition's top players? Fedorov was a BEAST on both ends of the ice. He was very much a complete player.




#2533745 Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 05 August 2014 - 04:57 PM

Yeah we get that, but remember two years ago. Finished 7th, beat the Ducks in 7, then went on to take the Hawks to 7 games (OT) but lost. Anything can happen in the playoffs but I'm sure you'll sit there and say 7th isn't 8th blah blah blah.

 

If by "anything can happen in the playoffs" you mean "Cindarella teams don't win the Stanley Cup," then you are correct. LA's continued success has demonstrated that the team wasn't the fluke so many claimed it was a couple of years ago.

 

Name a genuine Cinderella that has won it all in the modern NHL.




#2529786 Favorite Ken Holland Catchphrase / Quote

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 03 July 2014 - 02:07 PM

My vote: "I don't know why they're not coming here" because it demonstrates, more than any of the other quotes, just how out-of-touch Holland seems to be. The league might have passed him by.

Funny we were all super disappointed we didn't land him last year and now Philly has to beg people to take him. I think Niskanen is going to be a similar story.

 

So would that prove that our GM is even worse than we fear, seeing as how he offered Niskanen a big contract?




#2529596 When will we know about Alfie? (Legwand signed w. Sens)

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 02 July 2014 - 07:00 PM

Wait a minute, wasn't the Legwand trade supposed to be good because "he is a sure signing this offseason". Why exacly is he "good as gone"? So we really did trade Jarnkrok for a 20 game rental to get us to a first round knockout?

 

To make the playoffs and keep the streak alive. NOTE: Please don't shoot the messenger. (Hint: I'm the messenger).

 

To the OP question, when will be know about Legwand? Pretty sure we knew just as soon as he was playing on the 4th line.

I know him!  It's Ziggerwaggelitus and Figglywigbandersnatch's son.  What a lovely family.  I have to remember to send them a Christmas card this year. 

I don't think they celebrate Christmas where those names are from. :lol:

Favorite post of the day for both style and substance.  +100 and the keys to the city for you.

 

Wow, I'm honored. Kip and Fat Guy Maltby both like my post. :)


While all this may be true, I'd still rather be Cinderella than an ugly stepsister. :(

 

You could never be an ugly stepsister, BoS. :D

Cinderella frauds occasionally make the Finals. They don't win. Cinderella teams also occasionally take a 3-1 lead on the eventual Stanley Cup champs only to be exposed in games 5, 6, and 7.

 

Don't be fooled by Cinderella. She's really a homely girl with a mop and bucket.

Toronto def shopping Cody Franson. He his a name the Wings have been linked to before. What do you guys think?

 

Only if we get rid of Franzen. I don't want to listen to Ozzie mispronounce Franzen AND Franson.




#2529443 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 02 July 2014 - 12:03 PM

Oh I'm not doubting that. I'm just saying I (and hopefully others) will go through next season wanting as many losses as possible to get a high pick and influence management changes.

 

When the team takes the ice, I root for them to win. In July I want them to tear the whole damn thing apart and build it from scratch.

The blind head in the sand defense in here is astounding.

Fine guys, so you're all pretty much saying if we make the playoffs and lose the same way as this season, you will be happy.

Nice to see how easily satisfied you are.

 

I want a Red Wings rebuild. That being said, "head in the sand" is thinking that the Wings will tank. Say it all you want, shout it on every message board, but the management and ownership want to keep the streak alive. Ignore this fact all you want; that won't make it less true.




#2529186 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Moment you've been waiting for GMR. Quote from KH:

 

“There are still a lot of players out there that could be good one-year bargains,” Holland said. “We’ll keep kicking tires. I was hoping to get one or two right-shot defensemen, but they signed elsewhere, that’s their prerogative. That’s going to happen more and more with the cap ceiling and floor going up.”

 

Translation of Holland's statement:

 

"Because I can no longer spend Mr. Illitch's money like a drunk birthday boy at a strip club, I will finally be exposed as a fraud."

And Helene and Khan and Pleiness and all you other know-nothing hackjobs...go to hell. Especially Helene. That you have a paying job while people are starving and dying on the streets makes me want to punch you in the face with a monster truck.

 

Why? St. James said days ago that Niskanen wouldn't sign with Detroit.

 

Helene St. James @HeleneStJames 6h

. I wrote that last week. More $$ & term elsewhere. / “@nikzomberg: @HeleneStJames word is Wings are out on Niskanen, any validity to that?”

But it is a rebuild, just of a different kind, because KH and co realised that they could break the mould, and actually re-tool on the fly and still remain competitive. 

 

Why the hell do we need a new coach? Babcock is arguably one of the top 3 coaches in the league right now. And we should replace him with Blashill? Who has how many years of NHL head coaching experience? WHy? Out of principle? 

 

Why should we trade Pavel and Hank away, when they have proven themselves time and time again? This team that we have right now is a better, deeper, younger team than that of only 2 years ago that put Chicago on the ropes. We've got better scoring depth, better youth. 

 

We have promoted the kids from GR. NOt all of them, but not all of them have shown that they are ready yet either. Hence why Mantha will most likely start in GR this season, and be the first recall. Why rush your prospects when they are not ready to the point where it stunts their development? 

 

And has actually, anyone here thought the last two seasons boring? The playoff run in 2013 was incredibly. Heartwrenching yes but it was a terrific ride. Just like this season and the battle against injuries and the rise of Gus and Tatar. For me, it speaks to how well this organisation is run, that even when the s*** hits the fan, we still make the playoffs because we draft so much better and develop so much better than the rest of the league. 

 

As so many have repeated, it is highly unlikely to rebuild successfully in today's NHL without tanking and thereby securing very high draft picks for a couple of years or more.

 

There is no future franchise player on the Wings' roster and quite possibly not in the minors (so say statistics). Yes, the Wings have some good young talent, but they don't have what a few years of top 4 picks would garner them.

 

Anyone (not you in particular) who mistakes Nyquist and Tatar for the next coming of 19 and 91 or for Dats and Z is deluded. Likewise, DD is not the next Lidstrom.

Ken Hollands actions lately prove to me that he is/was not the great NHL GM that everyone said he was. He must have been just the face in front of the real brains that have now all left. Nill, Bowman, and Yzerman.

The Quincey signing will go down as one of his worst deals. Better to have done nothing then this. To be rejected by most UFA's is a big sign that the Wings are in big trouble. We are in for a long year(s) ahead

 

Holland did not build the 90's Cup teams. He didn't build the '02 team; he spent Illitch's money to maintain it. And he pulled a Joe Dumars in '08 (dumb luck).
