#2554789 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by Red Crazy on 08 December 2014 - 10:09 AM

 

17 points in 21 games is dead weight???

 

Franzen has his issues, and he is definitely streaky, but to call him "dead weight" is a tad extreme.

But maybe this is the time to move him for a player that contributes every game or a top 4 d man? The best way of getting value for a player is when they are playing well. 




#2550813 An amazing day for a family of Red Wings fans

Posted by Red Crazy on 21 November 2014 - 04:09 PM

I thought I would share this with you fellow Wings fans.

 

My family lives in Manitoba and I have been a Wing fan since the mid 80`s so I guess my passion for the team has been passed on to first my wife and now our two boys age 6 and 8. Getting tickets in Winnipeg is usually next to impossible and the thought of getting 4 together is just a dream unless you wanted to pay 2-300 on stubhub. But by luck I was able to get 4 tickets from a season ticket holder that couldn`t attend so we were all set!!!

 

We are about 2.5 hours drive to Winnipeg so we booked a hotel next to the arena. It turned out that the Wings were staying at the same hotel! We met Bill Roose when we were checking in and he said to hang out in the lobby because the players will be coming down soon to get onto a bus for the arena. We got to meet most of the players and my boys were lucky enough to get 10-12 autographs each! We saw all the Detroit t.v guys etc. It was unbelievable!!! The players were so nice to their fans and taking pictures with the boys.

 

When we got over to the arena we asked to go down to ice level to watch warm ups. Many of the players tapped on the glass and smiled to the boys. Tatar even tossed a puck over the glass to them! 

 

It was a great game to watch! 

 

Anyways I wanted to share this story for those interested. The Red Wings are a class act all the way! From their security guys right to the players! Thank you Red Wings for making a dream come true for our family. We will remember the day forever.




#2534023 Alfie wants to play

Posted by Red Crazy on 11 August 2014 - 06:07 PM

I like Alfie but this team as it stands today is a fringe playoff team and we might as well play the young guys and give them a look at this point. 




#2529117 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by Red Crazy on 01 July 2014 - 08:23 PM

Ken Hollands actions lately prove to me that he is/was not the great NHL GM that everyone said he was. He must have been just the face in front of the real brains that have now all left. Nill, Bowman, and Yzerman. 

 

The Quincey signing will go down as one of his worst deals. Better to have done nothing then this. To be rejected by most UFA's is a big sign that the Wings are in big trouble. We are in for a long year(s) ahead

This better mean Ken Holland loses his job




#2491113 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by Red Crazy on 05 March 2014 - 05:53 PM

Maybe the brains behind Holland the greatest GM in the league left with Nill, Yzerman, and Bowman. Adding another plug to the line up is what we need? How many plugs that he has signed are already in GR......... I actually like Legwand as a player. Hollands track record is starting to get pretty shakey. He needs to step to the plate this coming off season in a big way and get this team back to being a contender.




#2480385 The NHL reffing affecting the game

Posted by Red Crazy on 02 February 2014 - 03:53 PM

I think Wings fans should be more pissed off and the lack of defense then the ref's. A bad call or not 6g against does not get you too many wins. 




#2479806 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by Red Crazy on 02 February 2014 - 10:07 AM

It take Todd McLellan from the Sharks. Wings should have never let him go.




#2471297 The Dan Cleary Hate Zone

Posted by Red Crazy on 07 January 2014 - 08:21 PM

I'll reserve my judgement on Cleary until playoffs assuming we make them.  I have to think some of the problem is just mental the way he turned up his game in the playoffs last year.

Can we really afford to keep players because they are good playoff performers? Cleary plays to the best of the ability that he has left. However he does provide some good leadership qualities.




#2467584 12/23 GDT : Islanders 3 at Red Wings 0

Posted by Red Crazy on 24 December 2013 - 10:37 AM

I am starting to think this teams problems are a lot to do with the way this team is ran by Bab`s and Holland. Its clear that Bab`s has his favorites and will play those guys before players that are working twice as hard and have more value to the team. What kind of message does this send to the rest of the team? Smith, Quincey and Cleary where -7 in the first period and didn't miss a shift. Because of all the injuries and call ups we now know that we have lots of players that are NHL ready. I am going to hate seeing these guys get sent down so Cleary and Sammy can keep there roster spots. And don't give me the cap bs if Holland wanted these 2 gone he would find away. Holland made a big mistake signing Sammy, Cleary and Quincey. its time to admit it and make moves. Its a good thing this team is in the east because they would not make the playoffs in the west.




#2467285 Tootoo called up

Posted by Red Crazy on 23 December 2013 - 01:57 PM

Babcock claims to play the guys that work hard but yet Cleary is done and still draws into the lineup. Every player outplayed him last game but yet Tootoo gets sent down. 




#2467284 12/23 GDT : Islanders 3 at Red Wings 0

Posted by Red Crazy on 23 December 2013 - 01:54 PM

Glad to see Goose back. Not happy that Tootoo got sent down again though. Sammy and Cleary need to go but somehow Cleary keeps getting into the lineup even though he doesn't deserve a spot. 

 

We need the points 3-1 Wings. Merry Christmas to you all




#2467178 USA vs Canada woman's fight

Posted by Red Crazy on 22 December 2013 - 01:50 PM

Call the fight what you want but at least the women showed some push back on both teams. We have watched our goalies get ran our best players get hammered and nothing ever happens. Laughing at the way this fight happened have you ever watched some of our players in a scrum????? just sayin'




#2462357 Weiss

Posted by Red Crazy on 08 December 2013 - 10:16 AM

Weiss will be bought out if this kind of play continues. Sammy, Weiss, and Cleary are all big mistakes on behalf of Holland. Maybe Babs plays them together to remind him...lol 




#2457569 11/23 GDT: Game 24 - Senators 4 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by Red Crazy on 24 November 2013 - 10:35 AM

This was an embarrassing game, no matter how one is looking at it the only bright spot  Smith showing huge balls against Neil.

 

- diving: seriously stop this crap this isn't soccer nor basketball show some class

- pushed around: the best player on this team BY FAR is getting ellbowed and no one willing to stand up for him? WTF

- losing against a joke of an expansion team, which can't even fill their own building without TorontoMapleLeafs fans *LOL*

- PP sucked as always since St. Nick retired...

 

Enough with the soft euro style, create a fourth line from hell like the TorontoMapleLeafs have done, after getting pushed around now they are one - if not - the toughest team in the NHL, that's how to build a fourth line Kenny.

 

I like what Bertuzzi brings, but seriously other enforcers are not afraid to fight him...guys like Scott, McGrattan, McIntyre, McLaren, Orr or Bordelau are striking FEAR into the opponent. Heck call Russia and ask for Trevor Gillies I will be incredible pissed off, if they view the next meeting against Ottawa as a normal game, it's a statement game so they better make one.

 

While Howard isn't to blame for the situation, he isn't helping either so what about giving the monster some games? He has played pretty well and even outplayed an elite goaltender in Tuka Raask some weeks ago.

I couldn't agree more with this. The Wings got pushed around and quit playing the game. Neil ran around all night intimidating the wings then pursued one of our young D into a fight he didn't want to be in. Z was roughed up and Pavel was beat down all night. Not one of the Red Wings stood up or helped out their teammates. Ericsson, Quincey, Abby where were you? If Abby won't help out and push back in a game like that he can be waived as well. Holland and co have a week to figure out what to do before our next meeting with them. and don't think every team in the league saw how the Wings folded last night as well
