#2272202 The reason The Wings shipped Mike Commodore

Posted by Majsheppard on 20 March 2012 - 01:36 PM

Okay, here is some evidence to what I was saying... Sheahan just signed an amateur tryout for the Griffins... effectively joining our lower ranks without using any contract space. This is EXACTLY what I was suggesting they could do for Danny.

I think this effectively ends the speculation that trading Commodore was specifically for acquiring the outstanding Bronco from Western. Holland doesn't make the team weaker for a long term prospect when he doesn't need to, he would use the extent of the loopholes to get what he wants. I expect the week he is bounced from the NCAA tourney, will be the week he signs a try-out with the Griffins. Even if he signs a contract with the big club, which seems more likely, it does not logically follow that he wouldn't have signed a ATO or that he wouldn't have been a Wing.










Other teams cant offer more money, he will be on an ELC. Playing time would be the only thing


I could be wrong about that... but how then did Brunstrom make more money? He made like 1.8 his first year.

Evidently there is no pleasing the likes of you.

outside of the shootout, he's awful.


#2245197 Zetterberg Trade Rumor

Posted by Hatethedrake! on 13 January 2012 - 10:13 AM

At work today a coworker forwarded me an email he received from a friend who apparently lives next to or near Ken Holland. No idea how reliable this is, but this person claims the Wings are about to trade Zetterberg to Florida for Stephen Weiss and a 2nd round draft pick.


I have a friend who washes Kenny Holland's car each Saturday and he told me that Henrik Zetterberg is going to be traded to the Blues for T.J. Oshie and a 3rd round draft pick.

Ken Holland's cat's hair dresser told me that Pavel Datsyuk is going to be traded to the Blackhawks for Dave Bolland and a 2nd round draft pick.

Ken Holland's alter ego named Len Rolland told me that Ken Holland is going to trade himself to the Red Wings for Ken Holland and a 2nd round draft pick. Ken Holland will then trade Len Rolland and 3 draft picks to the Red Wings for Ken Holland, Len Rolland and Richard Simmonds (Wayne's dad).


#2245151 Zetterberg Trade Rumor

Posted by Nev on 13 January 2012 - 01:28 AM

Well for what it's worth - someone here had the luxury of attending a Tigers game in Mike Ilitch's suite...Can't remember who it was, but he said that a somewhat intoxicated Ken Holland was there as well...Being a Wings fan this poster chatted with Holland for some time; eventually telling him that Modano was gonna become a Red Wing.

Now I personally don't think Hank is going anywhere soon, but ya never know.



There was also the guy who was on here telling us we were getting Brad Stewart at the trade deadline, and got flamed to hell and back for it......then we got Brad Stewart at the trade deadline.

He didn't reveal his sources though, no matter how tenous ;)

#2259897 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 21 February 2012 - 05:06 PM

Bob McKenzie @TSNBobMcKenzie DET likes/knows Quincey, former Wing. Good insurance if Brad Stuart goes to UFA or Lidstrom retires, tho many in DET think Nick comes back.




likes/knows quincey hahaha that makes me laugh liked him so much they put him on waivers for derek meech ... good move





#2259875 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 21 February 2012 - 04:56 PM

quincey is a huge replacement over kindl, what if holland is expecting another team to overpay for kindl or someone else? (never know)



huge replacement? worth a 1st round pick?? jesus at this point id much rather have gotten kubina for a 2nd and 4th , hes gonna be in the 3rd pairing and hes making 3 million a yr along with ericsson , thats 6 million total for our 3rd pairing , thats crazyyy

And yes i do expect kindl gone with brendan smith up next year but theres no way in hell kindl will fetch a 1st round pick , we'll be lucky to get a 3rd for kindl

i dont usually disagree with kenny but this is a disaster of a deal , much rather have given up the 1st for like selanne as a rental or someone of that type


#2259920 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 21 February 2012 - 05:20 PM

pierre mcguire just said detroit has alot of travis moens and cant see them going for him but rather a skilled forward .... ya well thats where the 1st rounder would of come in handy , dont see it happening now

and he also said detroit was in for rick nash bigtime and really liked him but dropped out when the demands got ridiculously high .... thank god


#2259914 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 21 February 2012 - 05:18 PM

You clearly weren't paying attention when they waived him. Q played his way off the roster while Meech was playing much better.


doesnt mean it was the right move back then and it definetly shows it wasnt , he was still 6'2 200+ pounds , meech is what 5"10 ???didnt like that move back then and i hate it even more now


#2259936 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 21 February 2012 - 05:30 PM

Ducks are 5 points or less out of the 8 spot.... Selanne isnt going anywhere. This pick will be between 25-30 in what's considered a weak draft, and Quincey will replace Hudler on the point for the 2nd PP unit... May be something else in the works also....



yes i know selanne isnt going anywhere , just saying if i had to give up a 1st round pick it would be for a skilled player which i now just heard pierre mcguire says the wings are looking for ... how they gonna pull that off now?

i got a really bad feeling were gonna get ales hemsky


#2259369 freeredwings.tv stops streaming NHL games

Posted by Rubbel_die_Katz on 20 February 2012 - 02:17 PM

Thank you for your great work. I loved your stream so much. Living in europe it is not easy to view games. Your stream gave me the opportunity to watch so many great in a row and watch so many great moments at the time it happens. To watch highlights the day after it is not the same. I liked the chat and all the people who wanted to see some great Red Wings games. Thank you so much :clap: It gave me a good feeling every night the Red Wings played.

And to the NHL: improve Game-Center. I dont like the possibility, that some games might not be available to watch live. Improve and i will sign.

#2259361 Since we didn't get Kubina...

Posted by Echolalia on 20 February 2012 - 01:58 PM

I can't remember an incidence when Holland did what rumors and fans predicted/hoped/expected. His trades are always completely out of the blue. In any event, i would love to see Malone or Morrow wearing a Wings sweater next week, especially after watching the game against the sharks. We need physical, smart, effective contributors just for the occasion that we vs the sharks in the playoffs.

Also, I'm scared to death what this team will look like when Stuart is gone. I'll probably get a lot of flak for this but I think he's been our best defenseman this year, lidstrom including. It seems like he singlehandedly stops a goal once every three games, and he's the only dman we have who is really effective in the corners against players like the sharks when the cycle is established, or during a tight dump and chase. I would love for holland to pick up a defenseman with a similar playing style to Stuart.


#2258304 Yzerman asks Pavel Kubina to Provide list of teams

Posted by Majsheppard on 18 February 2012 - 03:10 PM

Also, Kindl is getting some bad press for making a mistake last night, as E has in the past.

Kubina is NOT known for his consistency. In fact the bio on The Hockey News suggests he is well known for making mistakes in his zone. To me it feels like adding a right handed Ericsson with more experience. I don't really want to do that unless it doesn't hurt the team. I don't think there a way to do that.
