#2533307 Samuelsson signs new contract....... with Djurgarden.

Posted by 55fan on 29 July 2014 - 03:24 PM

Exactly, HS.  I liked the guy a lot.  Quite frankly, if someone offered me big money to return to an old job that I liked but couldn't do as well as I once did it, and I knew they knew all about my physical state, I'd sure give it a go, especially if I was unemployed and looking for work.


I just wish he could have played one more game (not necessarily for us) to hit the 700 mark.


Best wishes, Sammy!


#2533319 Samuelsson signs new contract....... with Djurgarden.

Posted by WingsallTheway on 29 July 2014 - 06:19 PM

I agree with most people on here


Sammy was the perfect whipping boy especially since he was clutch in the playoffs


He was a good role player when we had such a stacked team, and was one of the few players willing to shoot. 


Its too bad Holland decided to bring him back because now he'll always be placed into williams territory.



His playoff goal against the pens, for me is still one of my favorite goals. Something about that celly as he skated around the net pumping his fist after the wraparound just stuck in my head forever. 


Forgot about the Chicago goal, although i completely remember it now. Classic Huds / Fil refusing to shoot the puck lol

#2533122 Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

Posted by marcaractac on 28 July 2014 - 12:31 PM

1. Weiss will make a lot of people eat crow by having a 50+ point season

2. Hank will have a career year.

3. Howard will have a bounce back season.

4. The team makes the playoffs with a lot less stress than the past 2 seasons. 

5. A forward we'll hate to see go will be traded to bring in a dman that we need.

6. Many Wings fans will finally see that the team is going in the right direction.

#2533193 That Time Mike Vernon Used the Jedi Mind Trick

Posted by Dabura on 28 July 2014 - 03:56 PM

Thought this was worth pointing out:


How Mike Vernon set the stage for Patrick Roy's trade from Montreal [SBNation.com]

Mike Vernon: I recall even having a conversation with Patrick Roy, in Montreal, at the little breakfast place there, the spot we always used to go to. And uh, I just walked in by myself and I was early to the rink or something like that, and he was there like "Mike, come here, I want to talk to you." He goes, "The pressure, the media, the fans..." he was just... I knew he was thoroughly upset about all of this, and it was really bothering him. And I said, Patrick, you just have to get traded. I said I got traded, I'm enjoying it in Detroit and everything else, and lo and behold that game was the game where he went up to the president.


Adds a neat little wrinkle to the Wings-Avs rivalry.

As talented as he is, this is what it might look like when Holland and Babs are handing out the roster spots after training camp.

#2521456 WCF: (6) California Dreamin' v (5) The Night Chicago Died

Posted by Dabura on 22 May 2014 - 06:46 PM

Watching those highlights, I wonder if there is ever a game where Queneville doesn't go berserk and act like a raging old drunk.


I wonder this every time I see him behind the bench. I think his record is 38 minutes.


Part of it is he has such an angry looking face. He even said in his presser today that he woke up today feeling angry.


Sometimes I wonder if it's all just the 'stache. It's clearly a demonic entity with a mind and will all its own.

#2520287 ECSF : (5) New York Rangers vs. (2) Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 May 2014 - 08:45 PM

No way Bylsma keeps his job after this.  Most overrated coach in hockey.  


This guy took over a team that had been to the Finals before with a different coach.  Big deal, they won the Cup the following year when everything fell their way.


Since the Cup win, they've blown two separate 3-1 series leads, have lost three game 7's at home (how is that possible?), and have only been to the Conference Finals once (getting swept by Boston last year).


Bylsma needs to go.  He's wasting the primes of the two best offensive players of this generation.

Here's Nyquists WC goal against Denmark. 

Who's this Goostof Newquist cat? He's pretty good.

#2519749 Gaborik?

Posted by darkmanx on 08 May 2014 - 06:53 PM

Gaborik in the winged wheel has been a dream of mine for like 6 years now.. 


I have a feeling it will happen eventually, but probably when hes 39 years old


There are about three guys in the league that I feel would be unstoppable with Dats, and Gaborik is the only one that is actually feasible, with the others IMO being kane and crosby


Vanek ? The plays they could setup would be incredible.


Great shot - Check

Great passing - Check

High Hockey IQ and vision - Check

Net Front Presence - Check

Great shot deflector - Check

PPG player on a bad team (Buffalo) - Check

PP Specialist - Check


For everything else there is MasterCard.

#2519838 Regner: Next year could be Babcock's last

Posted by VM1138 on 09 May 2014 - 11:21 AM

I hate articles like this.  They're increasingly common.


Regner is clearly reaching for conclusions.  Nothing here indicates next year will be his last. 


What Babcock has stated in other interviews as well is that he can get a job anywhere, so he's not concerned with getting some long term big-money deal.  Only people who worry about the future of their careers do that.  He just wants to take it year by year.  That means he could be here another 10, or he could be gone next year.


Either way, nothing here supports Babcock's leaning one way or the other.  But hey, page hits, I guess.


I wrote this in another thread, but the whole coach getting stale thing doesn't really apply to Babcock anymore.  There's such a huge turnover in players that next year's team and the one after that will be almost entirely different than the ones during most of his tenure.  So it's like getting a fresh start.


Plus, Babcock loves coaching young guys and building their game.  He can do that in Detroit just as easily as anywhere else.  At least here he has competent management to work with.
