#2519276 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by number9 on 05 May 2014 - 01:58 PM

Hi people. Just found this place while searching for Red Wings draft needs and considerations. Wow. Seems like a lot of people know what to do!! I think the main hole they need to fill is top line sniper. I wonder if Ovechkin talks are out of the question???


Welcome to LGW. Yes, we all know what to do. In fact everyone here agrees we should trade Franzen for Ovechkin straight up.

To be fair, Smith has been vastly improved in the last 3 months. Lets see if that's permanent first, shall we?

 

Smith was shockingly pretty good down the stretch here. If he can keep improving he'll be solid. But yeah, we definitely need to see if it can last before we get too excited. He's about the only Wing that seemed to really find that extra gear to shift into for the playoffs.

Not his 90 year old owner.  Probably doesn't even know we lost.  


OK, that's not really necessary. Chris Ilitch has already been running the show for years. He can fire KH whenever he wants, so blame him.

#2503449 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by Barrie on 30 March 2014 - 07:45 AM

We had no room for Jarnkrok. Who on this team would he replace? He would have still been in Grand Rapids next year too with Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Weiss back. When he'd finally get his shot, in 2015-16, he'd be 24. Plus there was rumors Jarnkrok was going to go home.

 

The Wings have fought and clawed their way back into a playoff spot the last 3 weeks, and Legwand has been a part of that. Holland turned someone stuck in Grand Rapids, or would go home, into someone who could help us now, and for the next 4 seasons.

 

If Jarnkrok's an NHL player, he has to prove it now, and that wasn't going to happen with the Wings. If he's playing well in Nashville, a team who could actually use him, then good for him for playing well so far.

 

Holland can't win, if he doesn't make a move people are upset, when he does, people are upset.

Maple Leafs fans are not pleased with the fact that they saw their playoff hopes lessened by, as they so eloquently put it, Darren F*****' Helm.

...ahhhh Toronto, the only place in the world you can go and watch the Leafs fall in the Springtime!




#2501602 Net off the moorings question

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 26 March 2014 - 09:43 AM

The fact is had Smith not made contact with the player skating in the net would not have been dislodged and the puck still goes in for a goal. To me it appeared watching it last night that the contact was pretty minor and Smith made an attempt to move out of the way, but the net doesn't go anywhere if his momentum isn't driving the other player in that direction. 

 

In the moment I was annoyed with it, thought the call was wrong, and I still don't agree with it 100% but I understand why it was called the way it was after watching the replay multiple times. 

 

More importantly, it's done and over with, it's not getting overturned at this point and the call stands. Nothing changes that fact. 

 

People are blaming Smith because it partially is his fault, but take him out of the equation, people are still pissed at Smith for not sticking to and covering his man as the goal is scored anyway. It's a lose lose situation for a defender. I'm more irritated with Howard's rebound control lately.

Hopefully he comes in like a wrecking ball.

I can't decide if that's clever or just plain creepy...

Frightening.

I thought this quote was about Detroit.

As is customary in Toronto, when your team plays poor defensively game after game you blame your goalie.




#2483844 If we become sellers...

Posted by VM1138 on 14 February 2014 - 12:07 PM

I don't think Alfie came here to win a Cup. He packed up his family and moved to Detroit. He bought a house. He went all in on a long term life change to come here. He's not going to want to be traded. I think he just wanted to play for a solid team with good management where all the pressure isn't on him. I don't think he's retiring this year, either. He still wants to play but recognizes he's not the number one guy anymore.

I don't think he wants to be a floating mercenary like Jagr and Iginla.


#2478985 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by stillwater on 30 January 2014 - 04:03 PM

The thread title is misleading. No way Babcock gets fired this season.


#2477099 Sammy Waived

The even better news of this story is that Franzen is returning Sunday, making this move necessary.  Hope he can play with the fire he did before the injury.
