#2539836 10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by Jersey Wing on 11 October 2014 - 12:50 PM

4-3 Wings and Cleary gets a late goal to win it.

#2538902 Kindl on the block

Posted by Jersey Wing on 07 October 2014 - 04:53 PM

I will be sad to see Kindl dropped just like that for XO after all he's done for the Red WIngs.


Said no one ever.

#2538895 Devils Sign Tootoo

Glad I got to see him for the man he is in his short time in Detroit/Grand Rapids and not the man I had demonized all those years in Nashville. 

#2533952 Greatest Wings game ever

Posted by Jersey Wing on 09 August 2014 - 03:34 PM

March 26th jumps to the fore, it's a historic marker which I think elevates it above the others. That being said the 7-0 game vs Colorado is close as is the 2-1 win to sweep the Flyers. The greatest one I ever saw live (and I've seen hat tricks by LaPointe and Fedorov) was waaaaaaaay back on February 23, 1989. I had to do some research to find this game and confirm all my claims lol. Some buddies and I left work to go get SRO tickets as the mighty Mario Penguins were in town. The building started out ugly as the Wings fell behind 6-0. SIX TO NOTHING. By the end of the night the fans were jumping on one another and hugging and it was one of the loudest nights I've ever heard JLA, the Wings stormed back to TIE the game at 6-6 where the game ended. Way too much fun, waaaay too many beers.

52 if I recall correctly. 


That was the night of Dandenault's 8-Trick as I recall

#2533363 Red Wings add Jim Hiller and Andrew Brewer to coaching staff

Posted by Jersey Wing on 30 July 2014 - 12:14 PM

As a former Wildcat, this makes me happy :bye1:

You and me both! 


National Champ Hiller is.


And while I'm talking about NMU, I found out that the Starbucks founder Howard Schultz not only went to NMU he lived in the same room I did, 304 Halverson Hall.

#2533160 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by Jersey Wing on 28 July 2014 - 01:47 PM

It's a good day. I saw DeKeyser earlier say on Twitter he was confident a new deal would get done sooner rather than later so yes, a good day.

#2532990 Hockey News: The 5 most evil hockey photoshops we could come up with

Posted by Jersey Wing on 25 July 2014 - 08:51 AM

Think long and hard Wings fans, they are one of the five. What would be the most evil thing to befall the Wings (in an on the ice kind of way)?



#2531165 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

#2529642 Well...at least we're not Philadelphia. Giroux Arrested.

Posted by Jersey Wing on 02 July 2014 - 09:03 PM

If we play Philadelphia in the playoffs I wonder if this Giroux issue would ever make it's way into the Photoshopping thread. Hmmmmmm, I wonder...

#2529145 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by Jersey Wing on 01 July 2014 - 08:42 PM

Let's not overlook the possibility of a trade or two. This was a notoriously weak free agent class yesterday and it didn't improve much by today. The prevailing attitude from most was that the Amazing Kenzini shouldn't overpay for crap. To that end until the Quincey signing he'd done a good job neither paying someone too much nor signing empty calories. But the Quincey thing. I threw up in my mouth a little.


We as Red Wing nation need to decide if we're more upset we didn't sign a player or two who could put us over the top from this crop or are we more upset some free agents may have snubbed Detroit. If it's the former then maybe a big trade might help move the team forward ala Shanahan. If it's the latter then yeah, that sucks. Though I'm sure Niskanen and Dorpik were sold on the Crapitals the moment they got to the Verizon Center and looked up at all those championship banners in the rafters. Perhaps other forces are at work beyond the Red Wings reach ie the status of the city in receivership. They can however build the new stadium YESTERDAY. 


I'm hoping a trade can be worked before I start losing faith.

Hear Ye Hear Ye, 5 minutes til the Summer Freakout!!

#2527582 UFA day looking up

Posted by Jersey Wing on 01 July 2014 - 09:37 AM

Look, even if you sign Boyle and Volchenkov/Strahlman you've improved and padded the defense. Boyle is incredibly smart and might be able to teach Brendan Smith the RIGHT time to jump into a play as he does it so well. Add any two of those guys to Kronner and The Big E and Smith, Dekeyser and Kindl and that's not bad at all. 


With as young as the Wings have become the last couple years I'd be happy to add Iginla on a wing and Boyle on the back end for a 1 or 2 year deal.

#2521416 Bettman getting a raise (again) 8 - 8,3 million in 2012 - 2013

Posted by Jersey Wing on 22 May 2014 - 10:34 AM

I think he's over the salary cap for commissioners.


Maybe Bettman can fight the Mountain as Tyrion's champion.
