#2311942 Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

I will never ever forgive Kyper if this is wrong.

#2311435 D Justin Schultz signs with Oilers

Posted by Red Crazy on 30 June 2012 - 02:57 PM

Edmonton likely offered him top 2 ice time ( their defense is that bad ) Edmonton will not make the playoffs again this year and they will fire yet another coach.

#2311236 The Grass Is Always Greener - Johan Franzen

Posted by Red Crazy on 29 June 2012 - 06:23 PM

So if those saying that Franzen's contract is not that bad then he should be easy to unload right? Franzen is lazy. He is not streaky. But hey if he is so great and his contract is so good I say dump his ass and get someone that cares. For the same money Doan is available.

#2310540 Shane Doan to test free agency

Posted by Red Crazy on 27 June 2012 - 06:52 PM

I've always had the sort of love/hate thing with Doan watching him play. He plays on the edge, and often over it. But the guy's a competitor and has strapped his team on his back time and time again in the playoffs. That's hard not to like.

I have to say though, I lost respect for him not for his antics in the handshake line with LA, but his whining in the lockerroom about the officials being against the Coyotes. He sounded like a bitter fan, not the captain. I have a feeling Tippet used an "everybody is against us" mentality to motivate his team, but it might have created an air of victimhood too.

It's one thing for Smith, who's just another insane goalie, but I was just surprised to hear Doan say things like that.

I think if givin a chance Doan would take those comments back in a heart beat. I would take a player that gives a s*** over one that isnt interested in the regular season 10 times out of 10.

#2310220 Parise Likely Out. Next Options

Posted by Red Crazy on 26 June 2012 - 08:28 PM

Semin and Doan for the same money as Parise? Tough call but I lean towards Semin and Doan for sure. 9-10 is way too much $

#2310210 Shane Doan to test free agency

If Doan does in deed leave the Yotes he will pick a team that he has the most chance of getting a cup before he retires. I would be really surprised to see him sign until all the July 1st dust has settled and he can make his choice then. He is exactly what the Wings need. He is a great guy that wears his heart on his sleeve and plays at 120% every night.

#2295192 25 Games for Torres

Posted by Red Crazy on 21 April 2012 - 11:33 AM

That must have included 5 games that were Webers? I have seen much worse in these playoffs so I would say a bit harsh. 10 would have been right and I hate Torres. Ashams was way worse I think.

#2286234 Predators fans boo Zetterberg

Posted by Red Crazy on 14 April 2012 - 08:38 AM

Vince Gill sang some song between the first and second called Bertuzzi's a sissy. Then the crowd was booing Z? I think they might be giving Canuck fans a run for their money at being the worst fans in the league. Vince Gill calling someone a sissy seems ironic.

#2279869 Wings meet Preds in First Round

Posted by Red Crazy on 07 April 2012 - 03:41 PM

The Wings CAN beat the Preds. But they will have to play with lots of heart and lots of effort. ( which has been an issue most of the season ) The Wings need to come out with all their guns blazing in game one because if the Preds get the jump I think it will be over in 5. Win it all for Lidstrom boys!

#2270031 Call the team out

Posted by Red Crazy on 14 March 2012 - 08:02 AM

Is anyone else sick of reading Babcock's post game comments? " I thought we were good for 2 min in the second, we didn't start on time, they played good, we only had one line playing" etc. I wish that he would call this team out or at least those who are simply collecting cheques and not giving a crap. Forget the PP. This team does not compete on a nightly basis and that is becoming a huge problem. Have you ever watched a Wings game and had a pretty good idea what the outcome will be 5 min in? Mike Babcock is a great coach but he needs to inspire this team. Say what you want about Ken Hitchcock but the Blues are playing inspired hockey right now and that is a lot to do with coaching. Getting the boys all back healthy will be a big help but this team has been lacking drive all season. So I think its the coaches job to turn this around now or face a very early playoff exit.

#2267274 What do you think needs to be done to fix the PP/PK

Posted by Red Crazy on 06 March 2012 - 07:01 PM

The Power Play is aabout as predictable as the sun coming up each day. That fallowed by the fact when they do get it past the wall of defenders at the blue line our wingers usually lose the battle in the corners. The big shot from the point fallowed by the Homer tip in, is getting old. Every team in the league knows this is the plan. So what needs to happen to fix it? I think Babcock and co. need to come up with a new system or new style of attack on the PP. We need a Brett Hull looking for open ice for a big shot from the circles as well as going to the point. The best PP is the ablility of having lots of options. Shoot the freeking puck would be a start.

#2264329 Columbus GM Reveals Nash Demanded Trade

Posted by Red Crazy on 27 February 2012 - 09:20 PM

What an absolutely large mistake in revealing that he asked to be traded. What good could it possibly do? Nash, who seems to be a classy guy, is going to play like he always does, but now he probably gets boo'ed in his own barn. Talk about a guy that is going to be counting down the games til the end of this season and chapter in his career.

I look forward to the day Howson loses his job.

A day, maybe two days after Scott Arniel was let go, he was on the nhl xm channel. He was bummed he was out of a job. But he sounded almost relieved to be out from under the stress of that organization. He almost sounded baffled to the degree that, that organization was that poorly managed and ran.

Instead of getting rid of Hitch or Arniel, they should of gotten rid of Howson!

I agree but demanding trade then giving a short list of teams that you would accept a trade to and expecting the GM to take all the heat from the fans and media because they think it was his idea is a bit much to ask for.

I like Nash but come on. Do I blame him? No but CBJ need to get a boat load for him and he is handcuffing them. Bad situation

#2263919 Johan Franzen Depreciation

Posted by Red Crazy on 27 February 2012 - 02:58 PM

Mule does not compete and that is getting to be a huge problem for the Wings. If all he provides is a few goals that are usually gifts then he is replaceable for a player that may not score more but that brings more to the table.
