#2471071 Seasons half way, thoughts?

Posted by roboturner on 06 January 2014 - 03:47 PM

I would love to see us dump the old broken crap and go young. Even if that means we miss the PO's. Just going so we can be "one of the best 16 teams in the NHL" doesn't do much for me. We are not a cup contender right now and could really be 2-3 years away. We have to have better players. be it trade, UFA, or draft.

The thing that sucks the most is we only have a few more years of Dats & Z. Maybe 5 at most.

We need to win at least one more Cup in that time.

 

I know doom and gloom has been predicted for this franchise for years, but who knows if we've got/will get anybody to step in to these huge holes that will be left.

My biggest thought is, it could have been much worse we are lucky to be in the position we are in.

Sergei looks like he could still crack our lineup.


I think he could quite easily.
He may have lost a step but that release is still absolutely beautiful.
And I guarantee he's still faster than Bert, Cleary, and andy.
Give hime a one yr deal, then hang the #91 sweater in the rafters where it belongs.

What I wouldn't give to have Rafi and Lids back in the lineup right now !!

Funny how most of the players are around the same age, except for Redmond.  

Redmonds got some vision man.
And That pass to Sergei, tape to tape threadin that needle.
Almost 70 and the hockey sense is still sharp as a tack.

And in the 1st mickey said the feed was breakin up, but i thought he had caught a slash and was pissed off, trying to stop from slippin..
Ha.
Always classy.

Can we replace Sammy and Cleary with Kozlov and Feds? They at least still have hands and wheels.

Awesome stuff, I'm happy to get to see Stevie on skates for maybe the last time. He didn't look too hot out there but it was still Stevie (I believe him when he says he hasn't skated since he retired). :tounge2: Sergei on the other hand still looks NHL caliber. Him and Slava skated circles around people out there. Mickey looked great too!

 

Actually Stevie did say in an interview after the first period it gave him the "itch" to play again.

I think Shanny was motioning towards him too like really Steve? You sure? I'm not surprised, Steves modest to a fault sometimes but that's why we love him.

 

It;s understandable though. You could see him walking/skating today and you can tell his leg bothering him. It was amazing to see him in red and white again, and I will never fault him for not taking a go in the shootout. We have Homer for that anyway  :lol:

I gotta admit, I thought the alumni game would be sorta fun to watch but not that big of a deal.  But I found myself smiling the whole time, especially seeing Stevie out there with Fedorov and Shanny. 

 

Dats and Z are great, but those are the guys I grew up watching.  Yzerman especially.




#2429946 kronner a #1?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 July 2013 - 09:34 PM

By the definition that some have here of what constitutes a #1 defenseman, there are substantially less #1 defensemen than there are teams in the NHL.

 

To me, there's more elite centers or goalies in the league than there are defensemen.    

 

Technically, every team has a number one defenseman in terms of his standing on the team, but very few of them are elite.  

 

 

So Kronwall is our number one, but he's not an elite defenseman.  




#2416655 Wings interested in Stalberg and Bickell

Posted by Crymson on 31 May 2013 - 07:05 PM

Horton or Clarkson. f*** Bickell.




#2415928 Franzen Buyout?

Posted by Jesusberg on 30 May 2013 - 12:02 AM

Samuelsson, yes... Franzen still has value. There's enough space on this team to knock of a few older guys, without compromising the "core"... so long as Nyquist, Andersson and Tatar are on this team next season, I'll be happy.




#2415860 2013 Offseason Thread

Posted by matt198913 on 29 May 2013 - 11:06 PM

Honestly this team is a player or two away... Tweak the roster get a power forward get rid of Franzen, get Helm back get Dekeyser and they will be a top team next year.

I like this guy due to lack of s***ty polit-correctness.




#2415856 WCSF Game 7 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 2 OT (CHI wins series, 4-3)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 May 2013 - 11:02 PM

BTW, would anyone else feel a little worse about winning because of the waved off goal earlier?

 

I'd have to hear that for the rest of my life from Hawks fans.
