#2368008 Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

LOL @ Babcock and Holland.

f*** you guys, seriously. I hope they are both fired before the next season starts. Incompetent fools.

#2312078 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by Reds4Life on 01 July 2012 - 05:32 PM

Horrible, horrible deal.
3M for 200 missed shots and soft play. Should have kept Hudler instead.

I hope the Kings lose. I hate that team.

Preds in 6, I hope.

#2284087 I guarantee we win this series

Posted by Reds4Life on 13 April 2012 - 05:25 AM

I think Wings will prevail in round 1. But I predict another round 2 exit this year.

#2248899 Time for my Cleary update.

Posted by Reds4Life on 24 January 2012 - 08:13 AM

I wouldn't mind trading Cleary. He is not worth 2.8 million a year.

#2243780 Marchand Suspended 5 games

Posted by Reds4Life on 10 January 2012 - 11:14 AM

Marchand is a dirty player and a chicken little. It's a good thing that he was suspended.

#2240140 Kopecky Suckerpunches Del Zotto

Posted by Reds4Life on 31 December 2011 - 04:41 AM

Kopecky sucks.

#2239500 What this team needs!

Posted by Reds4Life on 28 December 2011 - 10:49 AM

I strongley disagree that Franzen can consistenly score goals.

Yeah, Mule is the ultimate streaky guy. He scores 5 goals in 3 games and then disappears for a couple of weeks.

#2225507 GMs to discuss the 1-3-1 forecheck

Posted by Reds4Life on 15 November 2011 - 12:16 PM

There's no problem in traps. They can be beat and everyone can use them. The problem was Flyers not trying to attack. It's the responsibility of the team who has the puck to keep the game going, try to score. Other team tries to prevent the scoring.

Other team doesn't have to try to take the puck back. Most important priority is to prevent scoring, not to take the puck back. So don't gimme that argument, ok?


#2225049 11/11 GDT: Oilers 0 at Red Wings 3

Posted by Reds4Life on 13 November 2011 - 08:45 AM

I'd like to see our third pairing be Helm, Abdelkader and Eaves, with a fourth line of Brunnstrom, Miller and Emmerton.

Hudler doesn't fit in.

Hudler Helm Abdelkader has been our second best line in the last few games. Thanks to Hudler, that line is semi-dangerous offensively. If you removed Hudler, it would make the line worse.

#2225048 Will Stuart re-sign?

Posted by Reds4Life on 13 November 2011 - 08:40 AM

Stuart is solid defenseman, it would be good to have him for a few more years (as long as he does not want more money).

#2224819 What's up with Datsyuk

Posted by Reds4Life on 12 November 2011 - 02:42 PM

Right now, I would say that's fairly obvious. As a general statement though, I disagree. Cleary is streaky like Franzen, but he was still second on the team in goals last year. I have said in other threads I would prefer Filppula on Datsyuk's wing -- at least until Cleary gets healthy -- because I do think that is affecting Cleary quite a bit so far.

Cleary has 141 goals in 760 NHL games (100 goals in 431 games as a Red Wing), which makes him a poor goalscorer. He is not a good top6 player. Datsyuk deserves to play with better wingers. Simple as that.

#2224805 What's up with Datsyuk

Posted by Reds4Life on 12 November 2011 - 01:02 PM

Datsyuk has no wingers to play with.
Cleary has very poor goalscoring ability and Homer is good only on PP.
We could really use better wingers.
