#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.

Forget Cleary, I guess we have a new 3rd Amigo



#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.

Did he pull it out of a hat? - Because, you know ... Magic.

The baby is here because he didn't pull it out

#2510226 ECQF - Series A - Bruins versus Red Wings

Posted by Euro_Twins on 17 April 2014 - 02:22 PM

I like Legwand and all, but nobody on this team deserves more than Alfie...except maybe Bert.  I've secretly always wished to see Todd Bertuzzi get handed the Stanley Cup. 

I was referencing legwand because I was responding to a predator fan who was cheering on the wings. So yes alfie deserves a cup but so does legwand

Mrazek's style reminds me of Hasek. I think it's called heart attack goaltending.

Considering the league didn't step in when we traded a fisrt rounder for Quincey, I'm going to go ahead and say no.

#2504053 Proud to be.....

Posted by Motown4013 on 30 March 2014 - 11:39 PM

I've always been proud to be a Wings fan. Classiest organization in all of sports, great leadership, passionate fan base, original six. Pride has always followed this organization....YZERMAN playing on one knee to lead his team and then him handing that cup to Konstintinov to show his dedication to such a brave man. The way that Zetterberg carried this team on his back to win 4 huge games to get into the playoffs last year. The medical staff, players and coaches who literally saved Jiri Fischers life on the bench after his collapse.

There is a lot to be proud of a team so rich in history and yet, somehow i find myself in disbelief about that this current team has done.
Three weeks ago this team was in 11th....certain to break the 22 year consecutive years to the post season. Things looked dismal and everyone was critical. Great teams have great players and usually a 1-2 punch. Perry and Getzlaf, Crosby and Malkin, Kane and Toews.....Zetterberg and Datsuyk. Only, we no longer have that 1-2 punch. We have the second most man games lost, but no team has had to endure losing such impact players. We have 6 guys that didn't start the year with this team but will not go down.

They are relentless. I keep waiting for Nyquist to be a fluke.....and he has just gotten better. A kid who wasn't on the roster when the puck dropped on then season and he leads the league over the last month in goals? That's fairy tale stuff.....and it's happening right before our eyes, every time this team plays. How about Glendening? This kid wasn't even a thought at the start of the year...now he's up against the top lines of teams shutting it down. Tatar, the day he lost his dad, kissing up to the sky in admiration, playing with a heart as heavy as an anvil......I could go on and on about the pride I feel in this organization and they way that they have overcome adversity.

I think we will make the playoffs...I know we WILL but even if we don't. Even if somehow the bounces don't go our way and we find ourselves out of the race April 13th, this team...this unbelievably dedicated, classy and big hearted team has made me prouder to be a wings fan......that's a lot to say in such a consistently successful organization.
Good on ya boys......" Dont stop believin'" and we will be just fine!!!!!
LGW!!! 23 all the way!
