#2614755 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Posted by hooon on 16 June 2015 - 10:53 AM

Every time I see this thread, I think for a split second it just got bumped from 2 years ago.




#2613090 The return of The Mule?

Posted by hooon on 04 June 2015 - 12:19 AM

 

Needs more grit and toughness.

 

Add GMR

 

And KH just hired Blueadams as the new head coach. He already has a few ideas for line combos.

What if the ads on the jerseys were Watermelon Laffy Taffy ads? What would you all do then, huh?




#2595169 Post-GDT ECQF Game 1: Red Wings 3, Lightning 2 (DET leads, 1-0)

Posted by hooon on 17 April 2015 - 02:29 AM

Uh oh, somewhere out in space there's a hockey fan floating around.

 

What's more out of place, the astronaut or the two Panthers jerseys?




#2587978 4/2 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by hooon on 02 April 2015 - 03:53 PM

Ironic since two of them have none

I agree about pulk I m just not sure who I would take out. I think it would have to be helm

 

So make our top 6 more effective by putting in Teemu, and make our bottom 6 more effective by putting Helm down there? That makes too much sense for a Babs' line combos.




#2587047 3/31 GDT : Senators 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Posted by hooon on 31 March 2015 - 12:14 PM

The Wings are in the driver's seat the next two games, they really need to prove they haven't completely slowed down.

 

 

Hoping for a big win from Mrazek, some Datsyuk magic, and maybe a goal or two from Tatar.




#2575064 2/26 GDT : Red Wings 3 at San Jose Sharks 2

Posted by hooon on 26 February 2015 - 07:21 PM

Snowy day here in Denver. Just stocked up on beer, wine, and food, now to turn the Wings game on.... oh, I  have to wait over THREE MORE HOURS. sof03409ujsdif.

 

I don't like sharks. Go Wings.




#2557405 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

Posted by hooon on 17 December 2014 - 01:55 AM

Honestly, next shootout they should just throw Mrazek in cold and have Quincey, Ericsson and Al Sobotka as the shooters, because, what the hell, right?




#2555090 Lines Thread

Posted by hooon on 09 December 2014 - 12:44 PM

I like the new lines a lot and I love the kids getting some top 6 time. All summer I talked up Jurco and said he'd break out this season. Hasn't quite happened yet, but he has looked a lot better recently and it does seem like he's on the verge of some good things. Hopefully playing with Gus and Z helps to spark all three of them. 

 

If these lines work I wonder if Babs throws Abby on the 4th line when he comes back or if he splits everyone up.




#2553044 1928 Cougars Logo

Yikes.

 

Its as though somebody vaguely described the basic idea of what a cougar looks like to the logo designer and 30 seconds later he came up with this. 




#2540129 10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by hooon on 11 October 2014 - 08:26 PM

Whose this nyquist kid? And why do they keep talking about him?

 

Just some third liner.




#2540123 10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by hooon on 11 October 2014 - 08:23 PM

Not gonna lie though...I love those movies.

 

Quarter of an inch the other way, woulda missed completely.




#2539294 Kindl on the block

Posted by hooon on 09 October 2014 - 12:56 PM

 

 

Rask

Oshie

Niskanen

Neal

Stastny

Letang

Quick

Boll

Yandle

Hjalmarsson

 

...even Stralman went way after Kindl.  Not saying we were the only ones who picked a dud, there are always duds.  Have a great career Kindl, just not here anymore...

 

Yes but every draft is like that in hindsight, and the Wings certainly weren't the only teams to miss out on those players you listed. Not every pick pans out and at least Kindl made it to the big leagues. There's a lot of guys in that draft, many who were even drafted before Kindl who never even made it to the NHL.

 

I hear you, but its all just hindsight.... like how we picked Ferraro and the pick after that the Avs got O'Reilly. 




#2538847 Devils Sign Tootoo

Posted by hooon on 07 October 2014 - 03:42 PM

Good for Toots. Never got the fair shake here, and he's a heart and soul guy.




#2538827 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by hooon on 07 October 2014 - 03:06 PM

Seems like Babs has really been calling out Holland lately, even comparing him to a nagging wife who always gets her way. I like that Babs is getting fed up, but this also doesn't speak too well for his contract negotiations if he and the GM are so far apart on things.
