#2398037 WCQF Game 4 GDT : Ducks 2 @ Red Wings 3 (OT) - (Series tied, 2-2)

Posted by AtomicPunk on 06 May 2013 - 08:35 PM

Samuelsson has been so effective on the top line, I'm so glad we had the sense to re-sign him.




#2389343 Rebuilding Thoughts..

Posted by AtomicPunk on 25 April 2013 - 10:27 AM

Quite a manifesto. I think with the possibility of making the playoffs, maybe we hold off a few weeks on rebuilding and just enjoy watching the boys play some good hockey. I agree with you, they need to jettison a lot of dead weight and players past their prime, maybe trade a few of those prospects for established NHL talent, but let's enjoy the ride for the moment? :)




#2385328 time to trade filppula?

Posted by AtomicPunk on 16 April 2013 - 11:28 AM

I am totally OK with trading him. I don't want him back here. He is a fairly good player but everyone loves to think about Flip's "upside". That's it, you're seeing it. What you see is the fully formed Flip. It's not like he is going to go to another team and start going to the dirty areas to score, shoot first, and show toughness.




#2383618 Red Wings lack offensive creativity

Posted by AtomicPunk on 12 April 2013 - 08:18 AM

Wow. It's shocking that a team full of pluggers, rookies, and bargain basement filler would lack creativity. The few skilled players we on our roster have got to be shaking their heads at times wondering "WTF??"

#2376362 Top 6 fwd next?

Posted by AtomicPunk on 30 March 2013 - 12:23 PM

I'd love Ryan O'Reilly...I think there are still hard feelings in Colorado from the start of this season.  Especially given that next year we'll be playing Colorado a lot less, they should be a little more willing to deal with us.

 

Not that I think it will happen, but that would be amazing and it's somewhat realistic.

They can't move O'Reilly within one calendar year from when he signed, If I recall correctly.




#2375073 Ray Shero making the NHL his *****

A lot of people said that about Chicago too after their Cup Fire Sale, and they are still hanging around OK. (surprisingly). I have a feeling the Pens will survive just fine. (Unfortunately).




#2374993 Ray Shero making the NHL his *****

Posted by AtomicPunk on 28 March 2013 - 09:08 AM

His team is on, like a 13 game win streak, and he has added 3 veteran players. He may have given up a few picks, but by the time they hit the NHL roster, the young stars they have now will be 30 and reminiscing about the great playoff run of 2013 fondly.

 

I root for the Wings. But I do admire what he's doing in Pittsburgh. I like aggressive GM's. Sometimes they make mistakes but they are trying. To me it's better than sitting by watching and maybe pulling the trigger at the last minute and paying top dollar.




#2372784 Larry Murphy Fired by FSD

How can they get rid of Murph and make us endure Darren Eliot? HOW?




#2370955 Perry Re-signs w/ Ducks

Posted by AtomicPunk on 18 March 2013 - 10:52 PM

How dare Perry sign with Anaheim? Didn't anyone tell him he was already being penciled into lines on LGW?

#2370194 3/16 GDT : Red Wings 5 at Canucks 2

Posted by AtomicPunk on 16 March 2013 - 10:15 PM

wow..is this game hard to watch on west coast time. Between those HIDEOUS Vancouver throwbacks and the sloppy play.

I think Vancouver, as an organization, has consistently had the most horrible uniforms, from the flaming skate, to the "V" of black and gold, to the orca, the only one I like remotely is the original stick in box logo. The rest are just straight up awful.




#2365341 Would you trade for Brian Campbell?

Posted by AtomicPunk on 05 March 2013 - 08:40 PM

No, but just because of the salary.




#2363896 3/3 GDT : Blackhawks 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Posted by AtomicPunk on 03 March 2013 - 01:59 PM

Is our second PP unit really Franzen, Tatar, Abdelkader, Kindl and Smith? WTF,




#2359024 2/21 GDT Columbus 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by AtomicPunk on 21 February 2013 - 10:08 PM

Detroit has become a slumpbuster. Sad.




#2357268 No need to panic

Posted by AtomicPunk on 18 February 2013 - 12:56 PM

Maybes and opinions of experts only go so far. The jump from non-NHL talent to NHL talent is a big one, and then becoming a dominating, All Star team leader type player is another huge jump. Lots of players are supposed to be good or great and then don't pan out. I wouldn't bet too much on "the future".
