#2682948 Should any of #91, #13, #40, #30 be retired? Poll/Discussion

Posted by WingedWheel91 on 12 July 2016 - 07:44 AM


Isn't that overstating it a little?  


#1 - He signed a 3 year contract with this team, tries to leave after the first year - and then puts out an article (right before the start of the playoffs) letting everyone know he's leaving after the second year to "gives back to the Russia people". I guess that wasn't much of an untimely distraction?


#2 - He predictably takes a step back from that stance, and says he didn't make any decision yet (although it was obvious he did) - but if he does leave, it's actually because he wants to see his daughter more... Because who could argue with that?


#3 - He ultimately (to no surprise) leaves, and costs us Jacob Chychrun.


#4 - He then signs with the best team in the KHL, which is a 30 hour drive from his daughter.


If any other long term Red Wing handled their departure worse than he did, please let me know. If not, then no - I don't think I'm overstating a little.

#2682697 Should any of #91, #13, #40, #30 be retired? Poll/Discussion

Lol at Z & Pav and not Feds/Osgood. Osgood owns most the Red Wings playoff records, plus 400 wins. feds the best player on the team throughout the 90's and 3 Cup era.

91 and 30 absolutely. Especially if you're even considering 13 & 40.

#2651196 Should the Red Wings Trade for Byfuglien?

Posted by kickazz on 06 February 2016 - 02:46 PM

FYI if Dustin Byfuglien was on our team right now ... Mr. Fatty would be third in points behind Larkin and Z. A bit embarassing that a fat guy is outscoring our small skilled forwards while playing defense! He also has more goals than everyone on our team except Larkin. It's hilarious. 

#2649445 Joakim Andesson on Waivers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 January 2016 - 12:57 PM

Red Wings waive Joakim Andersson https://t.co/GnzcIRv2u3


per George as well...wonder if something is brewing? You think our former coach will claim him? Is it time for some excitement around here? Get ready guys, I think Holland is going to have something for us!!


I'm not falling for that one again.



#2605670 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by AtomicPunk on 03 May 2015 - 08:41 AM

Holland deserves blame for sticking with over the hill players (Weiss, Cleary, Samuelsson, Cole, Zidlicky etc.) WAY too long and not finding the players who are on the cusp of blossoming and acquiring them. Usually by the time a player becomes a UFA, they are over halfway done with their career and we pretty much know what they are going to be. Younger players aren't worried about self-preservation and "life after hockey" and they give you 100%. A player who is worried about his health long term and his investment portfolio might give you 95% but he is always subconsciously holding something back and being afraid of getting injured. Brendan Shanahan mentioned this in an interview I remembered and I thought it was an outstanding insight. And no, I don't have a link to it. It was in a thing called a newspaper.

#2571330 2/16 GDT : Montreal Canadiens 2 at Red Wings 0

What the f*** was Kronwall doing on that goal. Pretty much the worst possible decision

#2570995 Franson to Preds

Posted by krsmith17 on 15 February 2015 - 05:07 PM

Trading to a divisional opponent should not be an issue in this particular situation. The Wings and Leafs don't play each other any more this season, the Leafs have no chance in making the playoffs, and Franson is a UFA at the end of the season. The Leafs should and would have taken the best deal on the table, regardless of who they were helping out. Why shouldn't the prospect matter in this situation? The Leafs can't draft for s***, they should be after high end prospects before late first round draft picks. Ouellet should be worth more to a team like the Leafs than a 24ish overall pick from Nashville. And give it a rest with this Babcock speculation, it's bulls***, plain and simple. Yes, since the Wings didn't land Franson, they will get bounced earlier in the playoffs, and now Babcock will choose to go to the Leafs, who are in full rebuild mode, rather than stay with a team that has a tradition of winning, and is a year or two max away from contention once again... Give me a f***ing break...

#2570333 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by DickieDunn on 12 February 2015 - 05:09 PM

Being an ass online to someone who devotes huge chunks of his spare time to deliver news and write articles to us for free? yeah classy move...

How about being an ass to someone who copies and pastes the work of others "reads between the lines" to pull stuff out of his ass, and constantly complains about his poor health?

#2564749 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by Echolalia on 19 January 2015 - 02:26 PM

I hadn't realized Smith was playing particularly bad this season.  He has mistakes here and there, but so does Quincey, Dekeyser, Oulette, Kindl, Lashoff, Ericsson, and Kronwall.  Its funny how often Kronwall turns the puck over in the defensive zone, and yet its almost exclusively Smith that people latch onto and obsess over.

#2554090 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by rick zombo on 05 December 2014 - 01:26 PM

Hall should walk into Mac T's office this afternoon and demand a trade. It might be the best thing that happened to the Oilers in a long time. Would force them to act instead of pointing fingers at whos to blame. Sad times for Oilers fans. 


To Detroit.

#2550817 An amazing day for a family of Red Wings fans

Posted by Euro_Twins on 21 November 2014 - 04:17 PM

That is amazing but at the same time I am shaking with jealousy lol. That's awesome. Your kids will always have those great memories to hold over their jealous friends heads forever lol. The wings are a class act organization and I'm glad you and your family got to experience that first hand. And if you're feeling super generous and want to ship a couple of those signatures my way I won't complain ;)

That's awesome.
Thanks for sharing.

#2529125 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 01 July 2014 - 08:28 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


Holland did not build the 90's Cup teams. He didn't build the '02 team; he spent Illitch's money to maintain it. And he pulled a Joe Dumars in '08 (dumb luck).

#2529091 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by MotorCityMadness on 01 July 2014 - 08:02 PM

the only thing that is going to make up for this is a trade for a realistic number 1 D or a proven goal scorer or both because otherwise Holland is under fire and it will be a long offseason ass of right now especially if we don't resign alfie we would have possibly



 Z Dats Goose


Franzen Weiss Abby


Tats  Shehan   Jurco


Miller  Helm   Glendening



Kronwall  Big E


DD      Smith


Q     Kindl/lashoff



not a productive bunch especially with pending hurting players


How these guys are considered NHL Hockey players is beyond me

#2519234 Now some gritty forwards.

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 05 May 2014 - 06:42 AM

I made a list of RHed Dmen we should be taken a long look at and trying to get. So now I will do gritty forwards. None of these guys are goons. They a big guys that can skate, hit, and even score. Guys that play 10+ mins a game, some in the 15mins range. All are under 30, all make less than 4 million per season, and none are going to break the bank to pick up. So here are the guys I would take a long hard look at:



Brouwer Wash 6-3/215

Setoguchi Win 6-0/200

Jones CGY 6-2/210

Kassian Van 6-3/215

Smith-Pelly Ana 6-0/225



Martin NYI 6-3/210

Greening Ott 6-3/210

Bollig Chi 6-2/225

Clifford LAK 6-2/215

Kulemin Tor 6-1/225

Maroon Ana 6-3/230



Wingels SJ 6-0/200

Jenner CBL 6-2/205

Hanzel Phx 6-6/240

Smith Ott 6-2/215

Eller Mon 6-2/215

Nolan LAK 6-3/225


Setoguchi and Kulemin are UFA's, so we could just sign them. The others need to be traded for. I would LOVE to see us grab 2 guys off of this list, or find 2 guys that play the same type of game as these guys. Guys that skate, hit, play hard every shift and could net 10+ goals. We need the grit and size, as Boston clearly showed us.....

Franzen for Troy Brouwer.  Washington is the perfect fit for Franzen.
