#2618328 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by Wing Across The Pond on 01 July 2015 - 04:11 PM

 

EDIT: Maybe they'll get both.  Then trade for Lecavalier and have the big three from TB's last Cup team. lol

 

Literally didn't need the "last" in there  :tounge:

 

I don't like this at all. Even without Dats to start the year we have Z, Sheahan, Helm, Glendening all as C's. We wouldn't even need to bring Larkin up if that is what Holland is worried about.

 

If we needed a C to come up we could see what AA can do as he is further along in his development.

 

Richards can't skate anymore and won't fit with the fast paced style we are going for. I just see country club written all over this.

 

Richards can't skate anymore? Then don't cite Z as a replacement centre for Dats, because he's fast getting into that territory. I don't see it being that bad a deal for 1 yr, especially since you also mentioned Helm who gets wing time so isn't automatically a lock at C

#2614427 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by VM1138 on 15 June 2015 - 07:29 AM

The Wings really dropped the ball on this.  Refused to trade him, then threw him under the bus (Thanks, Jimmy D!) which I imagine further lowers his trade value.  I'm not sure what we'll get for him, if anything, now.




#2607704 ECSF : (4) Washington Capitals vs. (1) New York Rangers

That breakdown of the hit is s*** by Kerry Fraser. Every bullet point he puts down to say why hit isn't illegal could be applied to Kronwall's hit which he did say was bad (if I remember correctly).

 

and he absolutely leaves his feet before contact, not on follow through.

Because for some reason the schedule this year is crazy, how often do teams have back to backs during playoffs?

 

Hardly ever, unless you're the Red Wings in the 2009 Finals.

#2593751 Babcock: Petr Mrazek is starting Game 1

Posted by 91forever on 16 April 2015 - 09:02 AM

Hey everyone I am new to the forums but I have been a die hard Wings fan since 1990 when Fedorov signed been a loyal and dedicated fan since then. I feel good about this change up although Howie has been the go to goalie for the last 5 years I have to admit a change in playoffs starting choice this year is a welcomed change for me. I can see Babcock's angle Mrazek needs more playoff exposure but as we know this can make or break a goalie what better way to be baptized by fire then to test the waters 1st night huge game opener its a test to handle pressure and see how Mrazek performs. I am looking forward to this game The Lightening is no cake walk team and its going to be a great opener in this series. Mrazek can stop the 5 hole shots better then Howie in my opinion. If your like me your tired of asking yourself why Howard stopped this incredible shot but then lets a weak shot in that you know he should have stopped. Howard is a great goaltender the stats show this but if you can't remain consistent during playoffs from game to game then its not a hard choice. I have been watching Mrazek since the grand rapid griffins acquired him and I had a good feeling he would become howard's replacement within several years IF he delivers. I am not writing Howie off either but the proof is in the pudding, he needs to tighten up his game and become consistent rather then unpredictable. Mrazek has been given the green light to prove himself worthy he just need to take the reigns and deliver tonight. That being said the team if they cover the ice as needed and I know they will should be a solid game. Best of luck to the wings and I will be watching the game tonight. Game on! :)

He doesn't remember it, but I tell him about it all the time.  He was born during that season.  So I always tell him the Wings won the Cup in Pittsburgh the year he was born.

 

You, good sir, are awesome. Warms my heart to see another young Wings fan getting into it. Cool custom jersey he's got too.

 

Didn't see the game nor the highlights, but loved the names on the scoresheet!
