#2427417 Dan Cleary Watch

Probably because he's not as bad as a lot of people here make him out to be. 

 

He put up 9 goals and 15 points in 48 games and 10 points in 14 playoff games.  There's no questioning his compete level, toughness and heart. That can still help a lot of teams.  It's just a matter of his health and what role you want him to play.

 

This.

 

If the price is right I wouldn't mind him back. But anything over like 2.5 mil would be an over payment imo.

#2427167 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 05 July 2013 - 02:08 PM

I don't know why there is so much complaining. There is virtually no risk in a one year deal. If it doesn't work out, he can sit and someone else can play and he is gone next year.

 

Plus we just swiped a captain and an alternate captain from two of our new division rivals who have played their entire careers in the east where we will be now. It's a win win.

11SC > 5SC

 

If you could use symbols... lol. 




#2422043 Hawks new model franchise?

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 25 June 2013 - 01:29 AM

No. Our "worst" team in 20 years was one goal worse than them. We have no rebuild years. Our scouting and drafting and player development is still the model way to run a franchise. Let these idiots write about and think whatever they want but the Wings aren't going anywhere any time soon.

I see everyone is pulling out all the superstitions for this one. The good mojo will power the Wings to a win tonight. I can feel it in my bones.

I know Howie wants this game so bad. He has so much emotion in every play and every game, I would feel really bad for him more than anyone if the Blackhawks win especially how he carried our team the hole season. With that said, my pre series prediction was Hawks in 6 so in reality I should be happy with how it's gone so far but I won't be satisfied until it says 00:00 on the clock in the 3rd and a higher number on the visitors side of the score board.

This is why going up 3-1 WAS such a big deal. It's very difficult to win 3 games in a row in any playoff series. If Chicago manages to do it then good for them, but this gives Babcock one more chance to get things right and the players to make some changes. Game 7 could go either way.

even if the wings win game 7 no way they go any further having to play in cali. just embarrassing that they were up 3-1 in the series and now were going to game 7. they were up 2-1 going to the 3rd and they lose 4-2

 

hawks are in their heads and theyre scared. good luck wednesday your going to need it

 

Are you serious? How is it embarrassing that we take the presidents trophy winners to a game 7? Regardless of what lead we had. Wednesday is a toss up. The pressure shifts back to Chicago for game 7.




#2410956 Red Wings don't belong in the same rink as the Hawks?

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 24 May 2013 - 03:56 PM

I just love how the Hawks are playing the best they can and they are still getting beat. They aren't beating themselves, they aren't really making many mistakes, they just can't seem to wrap their heads around the fact that the Wings are better than them. Period.




#2410691 WCSF Game 4 GDT- Blackhawks 0 @ Red Wings 2 - (DET leads series 3-1)

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 23 May 2013 - 10:31 PM

First 3 game losing streak of the season for the Hawks. First time ever Toews has taken 3 penalties in a game. I hope when Howard shook Gordies hand he told him we are trying to make up for the gaffe of a game the Wings played on his Birthday. (Unfortunately Gordie probably doesn't remember.... but maybe.)

Vlady is in attendance! Win it for him!

This meltdown by Toews is so awesome. If your alternate captain has to come over and cool you off while you sit in the box in shame, you aren't captaining right. We need at least one more in the third. No way this game finishes 1-0.

I've seen more predictions from both sides that this is going to be a blowout when in truth we should know better lol. I will go with 4-3 Wings in OT but wouldn't mind a 7-0 Crawford chasing or something like that.

Not a bad period. The refs started the game like they were going to let them play but then decided they should start calling things here and there and have become completely inconsistent. Crawford looks suspect and Howard seems to be in the zone again. He is not giving up much in terms of rebounds.




#2406028 Jack Adams Nominees:

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 17 May 2013 - 04:59 PM

Q on that list is a joke. I herd experts saying at the start of the year that if the Wings made the playoffs that Babs should get a nomination for coach of the year because of how much their roster downgraded in the past couple years especially with the defense but I don't really mind the other two nominations.
