#2647322 Miller Out With Lower Body Injury

Posted by amato on 11 January 2016 - 10:32 AM

Poor Miller can't catch a break :/

#2647097 Jakub Kindl waived

Posted by kickazz on 10 January 2016 - 01:26 PM

Not even sending Marchenko down would help. His cap hit is only $666 k and they need to relieve 1 million to activate Quincey.

I think a trades coming up.

#2630224 10/13 GDT : Lightning 1 at Red Wings 3

Hopefully the rest of the team gets going, they can't win forever with 3 players driving the offense.

#2628398 Roster Moves by the Wings

Posted by kipwinger on 05 October 2015 - 11:38 AM

I think saying "Jensen is fast...but nothing special" is selling him a bit short.  Jensen has shown he's very effective in transition AND he almost never gets scored on.  Those are pretty important characteristics for a defenseman to have IMO. 


If Jensen is fast, but nothing special, then what are Kindl and Smith?  Fast but nothing specialer?

Jensen is fast. Other than that, he's nothing special. There's a reason the people who see these players every day on and off the ice choose one player over another.

I think his skating alone makes him special enough to play on the bottom pair. He's got great mobility on the blueline, he can rush the puck up the ice and get back to cover his position quickly. During the TC training camp, he spent some time as Ouellet's partner. While XO roamed, Jensen covered for him. His speed allows him to play a solid two-way game.

I also think he has a solid first pass out of the defensive zone. Ouellet might have better instincts, but I think the way Jensen performed during the preseason is enough reason to keep him up over Ouellet right now. At the very least, he deserves a shot to show what he can do during the regular season in the NHL.

Larkin made the roster Blashill said

Blashill said Larkin will start on line with Zetterberg and Abdelkader in all likelihood.

Whoever starts in goal Fri. vs. Toronto (I'm guessing it will be Howard), the other guy will start the next night in Carolina, Blashill said

So either your wrong about Jensen, or the Red Wings are making dumb moves. The Red Wings don't make a lot of dumb moves..

I think the ceiling is much higher for Ouellet

...or they want to get him more NHL games to showcase him for a trade.

#2627861 Goalie Battle

Read somewhere that we have something like four back to back nights of games in October and two in November.. that should give both goalies plenty of an opportunity to pull ahead for the starting job early in the season. And if both shine, even better! This is a great "problem" to have :P

#2627740 Who Do You Think Will Lead the Wings In Scoring

Posted by DatsyukianDekes on 30 September 2015 - 06:48 AM

PP is so key honestly in todays low scoring game it's more important than it ever was, Ovechkin is the PP God


Ovechkin is the goal scoring god period. He is in his own league and no one is close.

#1780281 A Quick Refresher

Posted by Jedi on 23 September 2009 - 11:53 PM

With a new season just around the corner, my fellow moderators and I want to take this opportunity to remind everyone about certain requirements for posting here at LetsGoWings.com.

First off, The Forum Rules & Guidelines; please take a moment to click the link, and refresh yourself on them. There is a test (kind of).

During the off season we have noticed an emerging trend, where more and more discussions are getting dragged off of the original topic. After noticing this trend, and receiving numerous complaints about this problem, we feel that this issue must be corrected. The Forum Rules are clear that if you intend to take the discussion off of it's original intended topic, it should be done either via a new thread, or through the PM system.

For instance, a thread about how Johan Franzen will be counted on more to fill the goal scoring gap should not be dragged into a debate about how we need more grit on the roster. To give another example, if a thread has been created that you don't agree with, it's not appropriate to post only a "FAIL" picture, or "NICE THREAD... ...JUST KIDDING" or something along those lines. If you can't post constructively to the topic at hand, don't post there.

With that said, the moderating staff will be paying special attention to the direction of posts in the discussion topics during the season. If we come across a post that is deemed to be off topic, or isn't contributing constructively to the discussion, it will be removed. And yes, before you ask, these decisions are subjective. So if you're not sure that a post will be considered on topic, don't post it. As well, if you have concerns about a particular post being removed, please take the issue up with one of the moderators via the PM system, rather than publicly arguing the point in the original thread. Continued violation of this rule can and will lead to temporary removal of your posting privileges. The removal of 3 posts from a thread can also result in suspension.

We are all now aware there is a curse word filter here.  Please do not attempt to circumvent the filter.  Just type the word and let the filter do its job. Circumvention will result in immediate suspension. Please take heed.

I like to believe that LGW has a great reputation for it's ability to facilitate open and civil discussion among hockey fans of all ages, walks of life, and places around the world. Let's all do our part to help keep that reputation going strong!

Thanks, and Go Wings!

#2625742 Leafs acquire Grabner

Posted by rick zombo on 17 September 2015 - 11:42 AM

Oh hey, another guy with only a year left on his deal. Methinks the Leafs are hoping he plays well enough to ship him out for a decent draft pick at the deadline. Much like half of their roster.  

#2625287 Matt Wuest Prospect Tournament Thread

Mantha and Lark combined together on two goals #thefutureisbright

That second line is going to be sick. 


Hopefully Larkin and Nastasiuk will keep Mantha honest with their work ethic and pace. 

#2624805 Gustavsson gets tryout with Bruins

Posted by GoWings1905 on 06 September 2015 - 04:32 PM

Seems like a perfect scenario. Rask will probably start about 79 games anyways, so Monster can play three, which is about his max before getting hurt.
