#2599791 ECQF Game 4 GDT : Lightning 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) - Series Tied 2-2

Posted by Number19 on 23 April 2015 - 09:19 PM

The defense needs some changes this offseason I'm tired of all these plugs. Infuse the youth completely (80 games for Marchenko and Quellet) or make a package for a stud. 55 is a number 2.

Hey if Lang, Sammy, and Cleary can score clutch goals for us surely someone on this team can...

Seriously how good is Datsyuk guys? After all this time he still amazes me each game.

#2553773 Alfredsson Set to Sign 1-day Contract with Senators

Posted by Number19 on 04 December 2014 - 06:24 PM

I have so much respect for Alfie, the guy doesn't hang on like Marty or Jaromir he actually listens to his body.

If Stevie listened to his body we wouldn't have the 02 cup or his final 3-4 years. I don't have any less respect for Broduer or Jagr if they want to keep playing the game they love and teams are willing to sign them. Maybe less respect for the GMs who offer them contracts (i.e. Holland and Cleary). Now if players were playing while putting their life in jeopardy that's another story. Fortunately that doesn't seem to happen in this day and age.

It's tough to vote against the game 7 goal or standing up to Pronger but that hit on Dion made me leap from my couch. What a monster hit.

#2531285 Who has been Ken Holland's worst recent free agent signing?

Posted by Number19 on 10 July 2014 - 06:18 PM

I liked Modano, it's a shame it didn't work out/freak injury. You take a chance on a future hall of famer. Tootoo was an interesting idea, but the rest were garbage from the beginning.

#2531155 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Number19 on 10 July 2014 - 04:21 PM

I have to wonder, doesn't Holland talk to Babcock and the other members of the team before signing off on s*** like this??? doesn't anyone actually speak up to stop this lunacy??????

Sadly reports are it was Babcock behind bringing back Cleary last year so I doubt he has much of a problem with this. "Clears" is his boy for life. Look I was a huge Cleary fan too, but after the massive tolls on his body he just isn't what he used to be out there. Even Homer was a better skater at 38/39 than Cleary is now.

I can't believe Tatar thought it was a good idea to stick-handle like that in those conditions (unless you're the Magic Man). The last two Leafs were smart to wrist it without much fuss.

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!

#2429830 Blues hire Conklin as development coach

Posted by Number19 on 12 July 2013 - 07:32 PM

For a couple years he was among the best backups in the league. Too bad it didn't work out the second time around.

#2427604 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Posted by Number19 on 05 July 2013 - 05:36 PM

Cool, he's old but hungry and a righty. Does the bonus count against the cap? Maybe he can convince Lidstrom to comeback. ;)

Anyone's opinion of Toews changed this series? I never knew him to be such a whiny brat. Great leader that guy. On another note reports of Kane maturing seem to be true. I can't remember one problem I had with him all series.

This isn't as gut-wretching defeat as I thought it'd be. It the back of mind I never really thought we had a Cup winning team this year and I doubt most did (at least until we were 3-1 up on Chicago then I guess you can start thinking about it) I think it was a success to make the playoffs this year, the 2nd round was a bonus. The young players made strides this year and I'm excited about our future. I hope we cut the deadweight and make good decisions this off season. We can be a contender as soon as next season. Looking back I think we could be proud of our boys to push the number 1 seed to a game seven and look at this season as a vital building block for the next generation of Red Wing success.

So basically list an all-star team?
