#2490145 Official 2014 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by anthonyn66 on 05 March 2014 - 01:02 PM

If we got Myers that would be amazing

#2489144 Canadians may be shopping Subban...

Posted by anthonyn66 on 04 March 2014 - 02:00 PM

Are people being serious here? Subban is 24 and is can definitely be a franchise defenceman! Yeah he's got some growing up to do but he's won a Norris and would be great in the Red Wings system, and he has been coached by Babcock before. Sure he was sat out at the Olympics but that's because of the depth Canada had with right handed shots (which by the way we like on our defence). Pat Kane also has 'growing up to do' you would argue but on the ice nobody cares, he puts up the points. Similar things were said when Kessel got traded (doesn't fit the system, blah blah blah) and Seguin (immature, doesn't improve his game, blah blah blah) and look at where they are now with a change of setting


With all that being said, there's virtually no chance he ends up in Detroit but if they called us I would put together one hell of a package to land him.

What we should do (and the only logical thing to do at this point) is buy out Zetterberg. It's the only way we'll stay competitive the next 10 years. He's a locker room cancer, doesn't produce, I'm sick of him...




Maybe this is management's wake up call and after Z, we'll take care of Pavel 'one-dimensional' Datsyuk and Niklas 'soft' Kronwall

#2470108 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

Are people really bashing Howard? He was Detroit's MVP for sure... made a bunch of good saves and didn't have much of a chance on either goal

#2468536 Howard on U.S. Olympic Roster

Miller has been sensational this year, .930 on the worst team in the NHL is nothing to sneeze at

Miller's trash talk was embarassing

I bought a Howard winter classic jersey...

#2459766 12/1 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Senators 2, Alfredsson scores ENG

Sammy is so good! What a carry!

#2442008 10/4 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Hurricanes 2 (OT)

Posted by anthonyn66 on 04 October 2013 - 11:36 PM

WOW does Alfie look unbelievable or what?!? Playing like he's 26!

#2428938 So.. what are our expectations for this roster?

Posted by anthonyn66 on 09 July 2013 - 07:09 AM

Because I don't think theyll be able to hold up in the east. Not with the current roster and if they sign clearly it gets worse.

But if by some chance they stay healthy. They can make the playoffs but they won't be cup contenders either way.

Swap East for West and you have the 2012-2013 season prediction... We're a lot better this year

So unselfish, great character showing for our future

#2410573 WCSF Game 4 GDT- Blackhawks 0 @ Red Wings 2 - (DET leads series 3-1)

Growing up near Toronto I've watched HNIC almost my entire life and grew up listening to Bob Cole. Although he gets names wrong his calls right now are giving me the chills, great stuff on CBC.

#2407995 Trade Smith ASAP!

Posted by anthonyn66 on 20 May 2013 - 07:35 PM

Kindl really sucked and was unimpressive until this season when he really picked it up (he does make mistakes but is still developing). Just shows that patience pays off.

#2404061 Any tips on ways to tolerate the NBC media?

Posted by anthonyn66 on 13 May 2013 - 05:03 PM

When Edzo isn't there the NBC stream is a great stream to listen to. Forslund and Strader are excellent, and personally I love Doc because he makes the game really exciting despite his overuse of "DRIVE". Pierre does kinda suck though but at least he's professional and doesn't pick a side. 


None of this matters though because I have TSN and I have their crew which are always amazing to listen to!

#2402093 Ovechkin -- Laziest Play Ever

Posted by anthonyn66 on 11 May 2013 - 11:14 AM

It doesn't matter if he's a scoring winger or not you don't give up on the play, EVER, especially with the game tied in the playoffs. He's the captain of the team too, doesn't show any kind of effort. That would be annoying to look at in the regular season with a 3-0 lead let alone a playoff game.


If you look at our captain Z last night, when he fell and the play looked pretty bad he got up off his ass and backchecked like you've never seen him before. That's how a captain plays, he sets an example for the rest of the team with his intensity, Ovechkin obviously did not.
