#2627777 9/30 Exhibition GDT : Red Wings 7 at Penguins 2

What is the point of the league not maximizing the amount of eyeballs that can watch the game? I can certainly understand this game not being televised nationally, but why not at least in the two markets involved?

Are you kidding? Jurco was one of the better players in that game against Chicago. He was a huge reason for 2 of the 3 goals that Tatar scored. On the first one he drove the middle, allowing Tatar and Sheahan to cross, and continued to the net, doing exactly what he needs to do for that line. On Tatar's third goal, he dug the puck out of the corner, and gave it to Richards which started the breakout for the eventual empty netter. He also drew two penalties by providing speed and keeping his feet moving. What exactly did Franzen do in his first game to get his opportunity on that line?... I'm not saying he was bad, but Jurco was really good with them, why change it?

Because it is pre season and Blash is new to head coaching some of these guys and he wants to see for himself who has chemistry with who?

Let me reinforce the word preseason and it is considered practice

#2602696 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 28 April 2015 - 11:48 AM

I was purely asking when does Holland get blamed for his bad moves. 
It's clear he doesn't get any blame for any bad moves. He can do no wrong in Detroit. 

I honestly had to check your profile to see if you were new here after reading these statements. When does Holland get blamed for his bad moves? The answer, around here anyway, is ALL THE TIME. Constantly. It inevitably leaks into 90% of our threads along with Jimmy sucking and Babs being an incompetent coach. He gets absolutely *dragged* if he so much as farts in the same room players are in because it negatively affects air quality and makes them play worse. Yours are not new sentiments, and frankly it is refreshing seeing the level-headed, rational responses.

Bottom line: Holland, like all humans ever everywhere, has made some mistakes. Some absolute stinkers. Should we replace him with someone better? Sure, I'm all about improvement. Who should we court that is clearly a better GM than Holland?


#2602666 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 28 April 2015 - 10:49 AM

Some of this stuff is just ridiculous lol ... Did I agree with every move holland ever made? Nope ... Hated giving up janmark ... Said from day 1 weiss would be a bust , didn't like resigning again and again samuelsson cleary and bertuzzi

But to blame holland for such of the stupidities I read?

Not preparing for lidstrom's departure? He tried to sign ryan suter and it didn't work , short of that wtf you want him to do? Nobody is gonna trade away a weber or Keith etc... We have to hope we develop one or wait for one to actually be a ufa and target them like everyone else will

Taking a shot at nyquist? Short of us never having drafted nyquist wtf do you want holland to do? And without nyquist's goal production we Wouldnt even be in the playoffs

Overall Taking digs at holland is just nonsense .... Nobody is just giving away there best players

#2602651 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by kipwinger on 28 April 2015 - 10:22 AM

Only on LGW does a GM "deserve blame" for building an almost entirely homegrown roster, making the playoffs for the zillionth time in a row, and being poised to upset a better team in the first round. 


The only thing Ken Holland hasn't done is play/coach the actual game itself. 


Has he made some mistakes over the years?  Sure.  Have those mistakes seriously inhibited our chances of being competitive?  The results certainly suggest otherwise.


Or is he supposed to make no mistakes whatsoever?

#2577575 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by Carman on 02 March 2015 - 01:38 PM

Yep, we've got our two 35+ year olds. We're good.

Like that matters. We are a young team right now. 


07-08 We had 2 40+ year olds and 7 other 35+ year olds and won the cup.

Right now our team has 5 35+ year olds. With the Cole, Zidlicky addition.


What are you going to be negative about next so I can refute that too?

#2538494 What did the preseason show us?

Posted by joesuffP on 06 October 2014 - 07:00 AM

We need a miracle to make the playoffs because we have the same team as last year? We made the playoffs last year and the division looks about the same.

There's one thing being realistic, but being completely negative about everything is just annoying.

#2518626 Wings will buy out Tootoo, not Franzen.

Posted by LAWings on 01 May 2014 - 09:05 AM

Some of you clearly are not understanding that buying Franzen out would be one of the worst decisions a GM could make when they can easily TRADE him for picks or something else, c'mon folks think here....  At $3.95 million a year, Franzen is a steal, and he can easily be traded for his average 25 goals / 50 points a year (.31 GPM / .61 pts PG).  His concussion messed him up this year, but 41 pts in 54 games is pretty good for his paygrade.


Do the math yourselves, go to capgeek and see what's available in UFA for $4 million.  See how easily he can be traded for that price tag.  Buyout talk is just plain retarded and shows a complete lack of understanding the mechanics of contracts and team building.
