#2263895 2012 NHL Trade Deadline Thread - February 27th, 3:00 PM ET

Posted by Ram on 27 February 2012 - 02:49 PM

pittsburgh? you mean the team that's played all year without their best forward?

if the wings lost datsyuk for the year, they would struggle to make the playoffs.

I think that he was referring to the top two guys being out for Chicago, as is not the case for Pitt.

Geno is just as good as Crosby, if not better, IMO.

I hate using the term "easy series" during the playoffs.

But yeah, I can't wait for the playoffs.

Great find. Can't wait for the playoffs. Pavel Datsyuk's favorite player growing up was Pavel Datsyuk.

#2260603 Wings W-L Record In Final 22?

Posted by Ram on 22 February 2012 - 11:34 AM

Well currently I am batting .1000 with my final 22 game W-L predictions and I hope I am wrong about tomorrow's loss to Vancouver.

You're 1 for 10? Where did the time go?

#2257417 "Chair backs" at the Joe?

Posted by Ram on 16 February 2012 - 01:22 PM

Pretty confident that every single seat at the Joe has a "chair back" as opposed to a bleacher type seat, so it is most likely something that is specific to your website.

Sucks because Hank was getting going. Oh well. Doesn't sound awful.

#2256475 Rick Nash "available for the right team/price"

Posted by Ram on 14 February 2012 - 11:46 AM

Franzen has a playoff record like no other. Keep him always.

Filp has been an awesome alround performer on the ice, and this year he is having the breakout production year we knew he was capable of having. He does more things better than Nash. Keep him.

We have a ton of depth, a ton, wich translates to assets.

Hudler has been very good this year, but we ultimately want to get bigger, stronger, faster, and score more. Plus, he gets knocked off the puck too easily come playoff time. And he let us know in his own terms (by going to KHL at the last minute after we already made player movements to committ to him) that there is no family loyalty between he and the Wings.

Hudler will atleast alleviate some of the scoring loss for Columbus. The fact that he is too small, slow, and weak for playoff hockey should be a moot point with Columbus. :lol:

Package Hudler and Kindl with a balance of picks and prospects that we are comfortable with and hope for the best. If it doesn't work, we have lost nothing. If it does work, we have lost minimal and gained more than we ever could have hoped for.

Sell, Kenny, sell that deal!

I don't want to let go of Mule or Flip either, but unless we throw a bank full of prospects along, Jiri Hudler being the main player being exchanged for Rick Nash is just not going to happen, IMO. Rick Nash. First overall pick Rick Nash. Face of a franchise Rick Nash. Jiri Hudler. KHL Jiri Hudler. UFC fan Jiri Hudler. Just doesn't make sense to me. But yeah, make it happen Kenny! I would love it as a Wings fan.

Part of me believes it was only a matter of time. Nash is a world class player and deserves to be on a more competitive team. Sucks for CBJ. Hope they can get things together one day.

#2254515 Red Wings Alumni lineup

Posted by Ram on 09 February 2012 - 11:11 PM

If the Lightening Organization has any class they will tell Stevie Y to come back and play for his team in the alumni game... I am sure Lightening fans will understand. Hell, most of their fans are actually Red Wings fans just cheering for the Lightening as a second favorite team simply because Stevie is Gm...

I have to disagree. I would say if Stevie has any class, which he clearly does, he will steer clear from it.

Did anyone realistically think he was going to come back and play for the alumni game? Granted it would be absolutely everything we wanted, but it just doesn't make sense. He is literally the #1 guy in the front office for another organization, he is all business, especially in the middle of the season, why would it be legit for him in his position to do something like that? Believe me, if Stevie is throwing on the Winged Wheel again, I would be the first one to be there, but it just doesn't make any sense, and to me it is a class move by the classiest act this sport has ever seen.

That being said, the alumni game and potential roster will not disappoint. Domi and Joey dropping gloves, potential Russian 5 resembled (I am sure they will honor Vladdy in some way); the players who have played for these teams is downright disgusting how deep it could go, I wouldn't want to be the person from each organization who has to choose who plays and who doesn't, because I'm sure almost everyone would love to.

#2251307 Vancouver Sun article on why no one hates the Wings

Posted by Ram on 02 February 2012 - 01:24 PM

Chicago hates the Wings because when their team wasn't on TV and pretty much irrelevant, the crowd simply enjoyed chanting "Detroit Sucks" at every game and it still exists today.

#2249282 Red Wings Pre-All Star Game MVP

Posted by Ram on 25 January 2012 - 01:25 PM

I think it's clearly Jimmy; he's been absolutely stellar and with goaltending always being a major concern for playoff teams, it feels way too good to finally have reliable goaltending.

Honorable mention though to Val - you have to love the way he has answered the bell and stepped up in this first half of the season.

#2248963 Props to the DJ at the Joe

Posted by Ram on 24 January 2012 - 12:06 PM

I do love the classic feel of the songs at the Joe. "I guess that's why they call it the Blues" last night was awesome. The timeless BJ Piano Man "It's 9 o'clock on a Saturday.." snippet played each time there is a game on Saturday is great. I throughly enjoy the fact that the Joe does not have a goal song, but instead "ABC" for 3 goals scored and beginning of "Matter of Trust" for 4 goals scored. I'm also not so sure of anywhere else that routinely plays "The Good Ol Hockey Game" and "I Wanna Drive the Zamboni."

That all being said, am I the only one who wants Don't Stop Believin' to die? Not just at the Joe, all Detroit sporting events. Its time is done. It was cool for a while. Not it's just awful. Where is South Detroit? That's right, Windsor. I used to like Don't Stop Believin' when I was growing up, and now its overplay and national promotion through Glee and other avenues has basically ruined it for me. Great song, just keep it away from my home team's sports stadiums. Even Rick Perry from Journey knows he blew it. My link

On an overall standpoint though, yes. Good job JLA Music Crew.
