#2393751 WCQF Game 2 GDT - Red Wings 5 @ Ducks 4 OT (Series tied, 1-1)

Posted by Hey man nice shot! on 02 May 2013 - 06:01 PM

I love Bert but Bert for Tootoo is shaky move!!!

Bert has had and still has Jacked up back and leg which was preceded by mono and NO games at NHL speed this year!

Impossible for him to be in playoff game condition.

I sure hope he sparks us and Has a great game but even in great shape he has always been prone to laZy hooking penalties and turnovers with those patented 1 arm passes.

I still think Toots is scared to play his game entirely for fear of penalties and riding press box next game.

Lets go Bert and Wings!!!!

Here's to adrenaline :)

#2386529 The Race for Eight: Blue Jackets, Stars, Wings

I understand your frustration in the Wings decline, but the fact remains that the Detroit Red Wings are the LAST of an extinct breed called a 'dynasty' in any sport, nevermind just the NHL. Decades of winning hockey have greatly skewed all of our expectations for this team.


I'm not going to sit here and say you're wrong in your opinion or that trades couldn't have been made. What I am saying, is that as terribly perceived as things are at the moment, there are much MUCH worse scenarios and teams than the Wings right now. You lament a season that occurred 4 years ago, while a franchise like Toronto is just getting into the playoffs for the first time in a decade. I think some perspective is required with the situation in Detroit.


This 'class of the league' you speak of changes from month to month in the NHL now. The Red Wings dynasty of old is dead, and the longer that you try and hold onto that and believe that it can be recaptured, the longer you're going to be unhappy. 


What I am ultimately getting at here, is that there is/was no other team like the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL, so any rebuilding/re-tooling that this team does has ZERO blueprint. We've retired more Hall of Famer's in the past 3 years than some teams have retired in their entire existence in the NHL. Replacing them isn't a 1-for-1 deal and no matter who you bring in, they'll always pale in comparison to the Lidstroms/Rafalskis/Drapers/etc. These losses are meteoric for any team, let alone one with the history and pedigree of Detroit. The fact that the Wings are even in the playoff conversation is astonishing yet nobody wants to give the management credit for that, they'd rather see trades and action in an attempt to keep an already ridiculous playoff streak alive.


This cheque has been in the mail for a season like this ever since the Cup win, and now that the bill is here, not a lot of the fans seem to want to pay it.

#2375301 Red Wings should pursue Jagr

#2361629 Potential Trade Deadline Sellers

Well written topic. I like Regehr if we don't sell the farm to obtain him, and if he is willing to waive his NTC to come to motown. I also believe they might try for kovalev as a rental if we are in the position to do so.

#2332851 Ryan Suter pissed off

Posted by Hey man nice shot! on 27 October 2012 - 02:03 PM

Thumbs up suter enjoy the next 13 years:) If you could do it again maybe you should think about the full status of your team your signing with instead about worring so much about $$$ signs.

#2332270 One good thing about the lockout...the only good thing

Posted by Hey man nice shot! on 19 October 2012 - 05:26 PM

The only good thing ive got out of it was watching the tigers beat the snot out of the yankee's in the alcs....which was a great experience. P.s I REALLY like watching the yanks lose.

#2326096 andrei kostitsyn - worth a risk ?

Posted by Hey man nice shot! on 20 August 2012 - 10:04 AM

Tough to say, AK47 does have a reputation and for his goal production i don't know if it would be worth the risk. The only person that can motivate AK is himself, and it hasn't worked yet...I would most likely lean towards not making that offer.

#2325852 Should Kronwall have to answer the bell for his hits?

I like to queue metallica's enter sandman everytime i see clips of kronner crunching folks.

#2323853 Bouwmeester opinions? Potential trades? *merged*

Posted by Hey man nice shot! on 04 August 2012 - 05:10 PM

He's soft, but hockey sense I disagree with. He's very rarely out of posistion, has a good stick with size, good decision making, great passes, and probably one of the best skating defenseman in the league. He made Team Canada for a reason, Sutter(s) don't have a great track record of flourishing defenseman either.

There's no doubt he's soft, and overpaid. But he's still an above average stay at home, 10 goal, 20+ minute defenseman. The concern I have with bouwmeester is going to be what we'd have to give up, and frankly he's not worth anything close to what's being reported.

I think JBo would be great on our team...but only if JF will trade him for something we can afford to lose.

I cant wait to start the season with all of this cap space. a bunch of cap space has gotta count for something, right?

Maybe a free corn dog night? lol
