#2542887 Weiss

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 October 2014 - 05:05 PM

...at least he isn't playing Cleary and sitting Weiss. That would be the telling point there! I hope baby steps are what we need for Weiss.  If he could get that 50 point action going again, then that would be great! Lets hope we don't have another player that we keep saying "if he returns to form" with.  I think its obvious that certain player is really struggling to re-become what he was in 08-09, and I hope the same doesn't happen to Weiss. We could really use him...

Didn't have time to put something together and it looked like no claim had been laid to this GDT in the sign up sheet.

I got all caught up in the non-call, but in the replay Ericsson's blunder is the worst. He just stands there, and at the VERY end makes a slight effort to start skating... then kind of stops again. He easily could have gotten in there and prevented a decent shot if he just took a couple steps forward. He wasn't even in position to protect a pass really. Not sure what he was doing out there.

I completely agree. Just a whole series of blunders there :(. But 80 games to go. They look good through two games!

A part of me wishes that NHL contracts still look like that.


Looks like there's some other cool old stuff in the bag in the first picture too.

Yeah - we'd have no cap issues if the players had 1972 salaries :lol:

#2538794 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

Posted by rick zombo on 07 October 2014 - 01:52 PM


"The best players will play..." - Mike Babcock


We really need this thread? As if this roster won't change a zillion times between now and Christmas. Hell, it'll probably change again before Thursday.


Also, in case you haven't noticed, the best players on the 23 man roster will actually play.


The 23 man roster is decided by Holland. So implying Babcock is a hypocrite is actually kind of naive.

Posted by Son of a Wing on 06 October 2014 - 11:04 PM

So I was going through a bunch of my Dad's old things and stumbled upon one of his NHL contracts from the Red Wings lying in between the pages of an old program.


I've never seen an NHL contract before (let alone from the 70s) and thought it was interesting and that I would share for others interested as well.


The salary and bonuses give an interesting perspective in comparison to today.  The average salary (according to the HHOF) in 1970 was $18,000.










#2538725 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by Bannedforlife on 07 October 2014 - 10:58 AM

Weiss will be playing this week and as long as he is put with a couple decent linemates he will produce. He will be fine.


I don't think Datsyuk will be playing the first few games, but once he gets back he will be back to his same old magic.


Side note: Am I the only one who tries to picture what some people look and act like outside of this site? I have a lot of people pegged, whether I'm right or not, I'll probably never know... Either way, it entertains me to see some people act so childish on here, I can only assume that some of them are still children, but you never know... :lol:


This is what I imagine most of you look like...
