#2653079 XO Recalled

Perhaps they were showcasing Ouellet for a deadline deal? Lets face it there are lots of reasons why the Wings brass do things that they don't tell all of us  :lol:

#2584966 3/24 GDT : Coyotes 5 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

Posted by Red Crazy on 24 March 2015 - 09:32 PM

puck luck? 3 of the 5 goals were softer than fresh baked bread...Jimmy made 2 good saves during the 5 on 3. That's it. The rest of the time he was horrid. With goals like that, he should be the one in GR.

My question is why the hell doesn`t he get pulled when it is clear that he is having a bad game. If Bab`s hooks him after goal three the Wings get 2 points this game. Coaching cost this game.

#2570255 2/11 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Penguins 4

Posted by Red Crazy on 12 February 2015 - 11:23 AM


Is Franson a soft player ? Looking at his size I think he could lay out some people with nice hits and provide some offense here and there.


Anyways Pittsburgh was due for a better game, they are way too talented to struggle unfortunately they came alive against the Wings. Winnipeg should be a much easier game.


Winnipeg will not be an easy game. They are big and play hard. 

#2562725 MLive : Howard out at least 2-4 weeks with "slight groin tear"

Posted by Red Crazy on 12 January 2015 - 06:16 PM


The sky is falling the sky is falling!!  Please, Mrazek will be fine.  We need to score goals!


I absolutely agree 100%. This is the time when we find out what kind of team we have. The leaders of this team have to find another level and get Mrazek some goals and the D has to play much better in front of him.

#2561421 Bertuzzi hoping for Professional Tryout

Posted by Red Crazy on 07 January 2015 - 07:51 PM

I wish Bertuzzi the best. I don`t think he will get another shot in the league though. The Wings could stand to have a player like him on the roster these days. A player that is tough enough to stand up for a teammate and with the hands to score a few. Franzen could be this player if he wasn`t a *****

#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.
