#2342184 1/19: Red Wings 0 at St. Louis Blues 6

Filppula-Zetterberg-Brunner Franzen-Datsyuk-Samuelsson Or...something? Someone kill someone in the locker room. Someone hit someone. Someone get something going.

Worst game I've ever seen the Wings play. Honestly. Can we get any sustained offense going in the 3rd? Give us something to make us belive this season won't be a total trainwreck? I'm an optimist, but there's nothing here to be optimistic about..

Do you have a nationally read sports article?  No!  Are you Pierre LeBrun?  No?  Why do you dipute this man?  Just kidding.  I just went to the link to re-read it and it says link not found.  But, at least I have a witness who read it and you know I didn't make it up.  Don't know what the problem with the site is, but looks like I am back to square one with "is he eligible or not?".

Bob McKenzie actually said on twitter Brunner is too old, I still think that conflicts with the wording of the official rule but seems it's settled.

All hopes go to Smith, or possibly Nyquist if he gets called up quickly.

#2340208 Detroit Red Wings vs Grand Rapids Griffins Jan 15th @ 6pm ET

Posted by dat's sick on 15 January 2013 - 10:39 AM

Should be a great game! Is it really Griffs vs. Wings or is it both teams mixed up together as the normal Red v. White games are? Either way, I look forward to watching this. I too hope that Mrazek is in net. As a matter of fact, I cannot wait for Mrazek to seriously challenge Howard next season, possibly making Howard expendable soon...

The teams will be mixed up, both teams having some NHL and AHL lines/d-pairs.

Howard will bein goal and Gus in the other, doesn't seem like Mrazek will play. Which is fine, Howie and Gus are the ones who really need to get up to speed.

I really, really hope some awesome human being streams this.

#2321763 Predators match offer sheet to Shea Weber

Posted by dat's sick on 24 July 2012 - 11:57 PM

I dont.wanna trade Flip, but Anaheim will want him to play with.Selanne. Also, Ryan is 100,000,000 times better than Franzine....

Have you seen Ryan a lot? I've heard a lot of opinions on Ryan calling him lazy and streaky, does nothing when he's not scoring goals. Remind you of someone?

Besides, Anaheim will want more than just Flip. A lot more. In a straight up comparison, Ryan beats Franzen in most regards even though it's not by a lot. But can we improve our team by trading for Ryan? Doubtful.

#2321385 Rick Nash traded to the New York Rangers

Posted by dat's sick on 23 July 2012 - 11:49 PM

That's such a ridiculously bad roster...

It's so laughably awful. The Columbus fan is in for a rough year.

I understand Howson being reluctant to ship Nash to us, but Franzen or Filppula would atleast have helped their team NOW. Anisimov is a depth scorer like Hudler, Dubinsky is a good 3rd liner and there's a reason Erixon has changed teams more times than he's been on the ice in the NHL.

If I was the columbus fan I would have rather gotten a better return and face Nash 6 times a year than to get spare parts and a pick and not see him at all.

#2320146 Red Wings re-sign Quincey: 2-years, $7.55m total, $3.775/yr

Posted by dat's sick on 19 July 2012 - 06:52 AM

We were apparently one of 4 "big players" in a trade scenario for Weber. That was until Paul went full Holmgren and killed that possibility.

Holland is doing what he can. We were so close on Suter too. Quincey may not be "the guy", but without him our D would look even more hollow. Quincey also has some potential to be quite solid. Remember this is the guy that EVERYONE was calling Holland's worst move as a GM, letting him go.

Reasonable contract, only 2 years. Good.

#2318528 Holland Content with Current Roster

Posted by dat's sick on 12 July 2012 - 09:30 AM

I do like that he doesn't want to handcuff the team for years to come by for example signing a mediocre player like Carle to a long, overpaid contract. Our young guys could step up enough to atleast take us to the playoffs, and if not atleast they've gotten icetime and development.

For the life of me I still can't understand it if he doesn't atleast offer Semin a big 1-year contract. Gonne be a lot of unused cap space this year..

#2318182 Smith Leads Charge

Posted by dat's sick on 11 July 2012 - 11:17 AM

Really, you think he'll get 43 points!? I doubt it.. 42 maybe, or 44.. but 43 seems an unrealistic expectation.

PS. I think he'll have a huge season and be a Calder finalist.

#2316424 Semin

Posted by dat's sick on 06 July 2012 - 03:54 PM

Khan on the huge show just said the wings would have to be very desperate to go after Semin. He doesn't feel they are very interested in him.

Wings ARE desperate. If we are gonna be more than a 6th-10th place team we need to make significant additions. I hope Holland doesn't let Semin's bad rep overshadow what he'd bring to this team. Being surrounded by Babcock, Renney, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, maybe Doan, is different than being around Bodreau, Ovie and Green and I think Semin would behave accordingly.

#2316052 Semin

Posted by dat's sick on 05 July 2012 - 07:37 PM

I can just agree with what everyone is saying.

Semin is CLOSE to a must-have. If we let him go to Pittsburgh I'll be disappoint. We have the money, we have a perfect fit for him on Datsyuk's wing, we have the kind of coach and organization that can get handle any possible 'issues' he might bring... I see very few downsides.

If we can offer 90 million to both Suter and Parise we can easily offer Semin something like 5 years at 5-6 mil per year. Maybe more, if that 's what it takes. If we add him we have the freedom to make a trade for D. Get it done Kenny.

#2316046 The Next Move

Posted by dat's sick on 05 July 2012 - 07:28 PM

not as pumped for enstrom. would still cost a lot and is only 5 foot 10 with a LH shot. not ideal. If we are shelling out serious assets we might as well pay a little more and get a guy that really fits well. If it was a bargain I'd trade for enstrom but no way are we sending flip the other way for that guy. I'd do franzen in a package though.

Yeah Enstrom is small but as a "replacement" to Lidstrom we're not looking for a big, physical guy, right? He plays really well positionally and is a good skater and exceptional puckmover. I'd give up Franzen for him in a heartbeat, and I'm a defender of the Mule. I'm sure it would take the addition of atleast a prospect and a pick however. My dream scenario is signing Semin and Doan and trading for 'Toby Orr'. Not that Yandle would be disappointing, but I think Enstrom could be had for less than his actual worth at the moment..

#2315785 The Next Move

Posted by dat's sick on 05 July 2012 - 02:27 PM

Trade for Enstrom instead of Yandle. Enstrom's value is probably at it's lowest right now. He's an exceptionally skilled guy that would be a perfect fit here.

#2315262 Matt Carle signs with Tampa Bay: 6-years, $33-million

Posted by dat's sick on 04 July 2012 - 08:41 PM

Carle is not the solution.

Really interested in seeing the money too. Probably WAY too much.
