Glad he's re-signed. Not a player I wanted Holland to go after.

This is priceless. What on earth makes you think that Helm would be able to play top 6 wing? Name me only one game where Datsyuk's line was dominant with Helm on it. Only one. Pretty surely you won't even find one. The reason is simple enough. Helm is a plug. He can skate but he cannot handle or protect the puck, he cannot hit, he cannot pass, he cannot shoot and he has no idea how to play without the puck.

Though he spent almost all season on Datsyuk's wing and played lots of PP, apart from his turnovers, all he produced were either individual efforts thanks to his speed or given points for which Datsyuk is 99% responsible. Helm contributed literally nothing but hurt the line a lot by turning over pucks. Datsyuk is an excellent two way forward but he would have been far more effective with different linemates. He needs guys who help him recovering pucks and doing the physical stuff along the boards and in the slot. Instead he had to deal with linemates who needed his help to survive.


He said play top 6 "in a pinch" and then said he needs to agree to play bottom 6 role strictly. You turned what he said around hard.

#2647322 Miller Out With Lower Body Injury

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.

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.

Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 47m47 minutes ago

Larkin made the roster Blashill said


Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 42m42 minutes ago

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


Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 6m6 minutes ago

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

Posted by amato on 01 October 2015 - 07:19 AM

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.

Maybe Cleary.

#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.
