#2608405 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by vladdy16 on 18 May 2015 - 05:35 PM

Can you guys at least pretend to be on topic and maybe just put "Babcock" at the end of your post?  

#2603005 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

The defensive pairings are just my guess right now, I'm guessing that Kindl would go in since he has more experience.

I want to see another one of these game sevens....


Or at least see whoever is in for Kronner get the game winner. LGW! Petr stands tall and the wings move on.

#2600062 Zach Hyman Won't Be Signing With Florida

If we don't find a way to get rid of Weiss, I have a feeling hell be the guy that pulks beats out for the job.
Iirc teemu is out of options next year, so I imagine it'll be like the Tatar situation at the beginning of last year...
The differences being we don't have as much dead weight for him to replaced, and teemu probably won't be anywhere near as productive as tats was.

#2598429 Zach Hyman Won't Be Signing With Florida

Thanks for the list man ... Didn't think guys from Grand Rapids like Miele and porter would count ... I see quite a few guys leaving and making place for other guys for us to sign anyways

As for hyman he doesn't cost us anything so if he can be had for free then just sign him and whatever happens happens

Gotta think porter Miele Aubry McCollum cole cleary etc... Will most likely not return thus giving us space to sign him and mcnulty/wheaton and a free agent or 2

If he doesn't pan out I can't see a team not taking a chance on a 23 yr old kid with potential

I have a feeling well keep miele. Career top six ahlers arent a bad thing to have around, especially when you have so many skilled guys coming through.

But I don't know the rules on two way contracts/contract limits and whether or not miele has given up on being an nhler, or if the wings ever have plans to bring him up.

So if we're under the contract limit, signing him couldn't hurt.

#2595141 Franzen on IR

The guy needs to retire. Not because it helps us with the cap, not because he isnt the same player, not because he floats around. He needs to retire because enjoying the next 60 years of his life is more important then a game.


I wish him the best, nobody deserves this. Just sucks.

#2593767 S'matter Yzerman, afraid of the jersey you wore for so long?

I hope to god this has nothing to do with stevie. This is the first time I have ever thought about Stevie Y in a negative way and it leaves a terrible taste in my mouth. The guy bled Red and White for 22 years so I hope he doesn't have his hand in this.


Yzerman could pull the 2nd greatest heel turn in history.

Honestly, why do you guys/gals even care? Were/are you planning on going to Tampa Bay for game 1? I really don't see the issue with this - it's home ice. If a team wants to fill a building with their fans, that's their prerogative. Unless you live in Tampa and/or planned on making the trek down there, why do you even care at all? Seems like something to complain about.


Because the Tampa Bay lightening and their turd fans are now the opposition.  And every thing they do is therefore stupid, sucky, and asinine.  Whereas everything we do is absolutely right on a cosmic (almost divine) level.  Because it's the playoffs...and they're stupid, and we rule. 

#2593039 Brendan Smith

Posted by kickazz on 13 April 2015 - 07:40 PM

Give the kid a break. Obviously he's not an idiot. Put up huge numbers in college and in AHL. Seems to play best when he plays a ton of minutes.

He's 26. Will be 27 next season. How much longer till he's no longer a kid? Zetterberg was 27 when he won his Stanley cup and nobody referred to him as a "kid". That's the reason people are unhappy with Smith.. How much longer can we make excuses for him? Besides, his college and AHL stats are meaningless if he can't work the NHL system. And that includes basic/smart decision while sitting on your bench. -___- 

#2592880 Red Wings' playoff lines and priorities

Posted by joesuffP on 13 April 2015 - 12:08 PM

I like splitting up Dats and Z. Yeah they've acored but they're not playing unbelievable or anything. Our center depth is one of the advantages we have over Tampa

#2592194 Team next season?

Posted by DickieDunn on 11 April 2015 - 11:05 AM

Weiss's value in Detroit is going to be heavily dependent on what Babcock does.  If there's a new coach who will play him at center with some skilled players instead off where ever there's a guy out of the lineup, Weiss is going to provide value.  If Babcock is back and he's going to keep using him the way he is now, Weiss has very little value and needs to be moved for whatever they can get.

#2592131 Redwings recall Marchenko

Isn't Quincy playing injured? I'd imagine it's him.

#2592108 Redwings recall Marchenko

Posted by TripleS on 10 April 2015 - 04:30 PM

Tat - Shea - Ny

Pulk - Weiss - Helm

Cleary - Andy - Jurco

Miller - Glen - Ferraro


DK - Q

Kindl - E

Smith - March


This would be a horrendous line-up but would let us rest, Z D Kron and Zid ... question is if its worth the risk of facing the Rangers for rest

Babcock mentioned that some guys are playing hurt. I doubt Marchenko replaces Smith.

#2591991 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 10 April 2015 - 09:45 AM

After this game tonight, Babcock and the team have every right to be displeased with Howard. And to top that, going forward they will be even less confident playing in front of Howard because those goals he let in were the difference between us winning and losing. We could be playing Montreal in round 1 and if we play them like we did tonight, I like our chances. But if Howard is in net giving away goals, that effort won't matter. I think Babs should start Petr Saturday to get him ready for the playoffs, no time to give Jimmy a short leash. Give Pete the go. He has been by far the more consistent one and, while he may give up some weak goals, he also wins games more often than not and helps the D out a LOT with his ability to handle the puck. Judging by Babs' comments tonight I think this is the case.

The problem is that Mrazek has not been by far the most consistent one. He can't seem to string together two good games.

Lately it seems like neither one wants the starting job.
