#2584300 3/24 GDT : Coyotes 5 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

Posted by wings87 on 24 March 2015 - 11:06 AM

you know you're in trouble when your number one center is Kyle Chipchura   :hysterical:  #tanksohard 

I wouldn't laugh too hard, we're one injury away from our number 1 center being Glendening. ;)

Smith will be the issue here.  Tater and Gus Gus need to believe in themselves and get back to scoring.  LGRW!!

#2571847 Team next season?

Posted by DickieDunn on 18 February 2015 - 07:52 PM

Kindl out for a rookie.
Cleary out.
Pulkinnen in.
Gustavsson out for Mrazek.
Andersson maybe out.

Anyone wanting a lot of changes is going to be disappointed.

#2582482 Mrazek to start how many games?

The two most popular athletes in Detroit are the Lions backup QB and Wings backup goalie.

#2582476 Mrazek to start how many games?

Posted by barabbas16 on 16 March 2015 - 09:47 AM

I'm not sure why hockey fans need to suffer through bad play and years of frustration all the time. I continually heard the same chatter when Nyquist and Tatar continued to be sent down to the Griffins and we had to watch Samuelsson, Cleary and Bertuzzi. At some point cut ties and play the better guy. I understand Howard starts but he's never won anything for such loyalty and Mrazek is only getting better as he plays more, the team plays solid behind him and he's 7 years younger.


Um... the Red Wings organization is pretty much all about loyalty... if you have a problem with loyalty, you might be happier rooting for a different team. 


Also, "Play the better guy" is a hell of a lot different than "cut ties."


I really like Mrazek too and I also see him as the goaltender of the future, but I don't like the idea of handing the reigns over to him this soon.  I think maybe a 60-40 split for at least next season and perhaps the following one (depending on how next season goes).... then he gets the starting job based on his performance in the NHL with a reasonable sample size.

#2580734 All Purpose Grand Rapids Griffins Thread

Posted by krsmith17 on 12 March 2015 - 09:36 AM

I would put them as 1a and 1b right now as far as our forward prospects go. I've been extremely high on Athanasiou for a couple years now, and there's no question that he has had the much better start to his pro career. Mantha, I think will be a great player as well, he's just taking longer to adapt to the pro game. I think they will be 1 and 2 in scoring for the Griffins next season and I wouldn't be at all surprised if they are both top 5 in the league.


The thing for me is, I think they are both very different players but both will be just as effective in their own way, but I think Mantha is slightly overrated, while Anthanasiou is slightly underrated league wide and even by some Wings fans... All the talk has been about Mantha and Larkin, but I am just as high on Athanasiou as either of those two for sure.

Let Monster walk in the offseason, bring up Mrazek, sign Joey MacDonald

Put Abby or Cole with Datsyuk and Tatar. No need of Zetterberg having both of the teams only two top 6 wingers with size.

Abdlekader - Dastyuk - Tatar
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Cole
Weiss - Sheahan - Pulkinennen
Miller - Glendenning - Jurco

What's so hard about that?

Babcock said Glendening will play with Datsyuk and Tatar. He wants someone to do some work for those guys.


Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 2m2 minutes ago

Babcock said he hadn't decided who will come out of lineup to make room for Pulkkinen.

#2579667 Nyquist's RFA Status

Posted by DickieDunn on 07 March 2015 - 10:50 AM

If he signs a one year deal he'd be RFA again.  There is no reason for him to accept a one year deal though, and I doubt Detroit would want to do that either.  If they do and he has another big year, his salary would go up.  Nyquist and his agent will want 2 years, so he can be a UFA as soon as possible, Detroit will push for longer term, and I think he'll end up signing for 4-5 years at $5 mil per.

Posted by kipwinger on 04 March 2015 - 12:53 PM


I feel like this might have been taken out of context, though. Didn't Babs just say that he wanted Marchenko to play here OR go back down and play in the AHL - just not sitting as the 7th defender? I feel like NHL only used part of the quote.


No, Holland said that in a radio interview yesterday.  Babs' comments here are different, but shouldn't come as a surprise considering he's made his preferences clear in the past. 

#2576839 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 01 March 2015 - 08:12 PM

I doubt they make a move on defense, now. I was thinking that 2nd rounder would be involved. Not sure they give up a 1st and risk not having anything until the 4th round.

We won't give up our first this year, but we have all of our 2016 picks still.

#2572869 2/21 GDT : Red Wings 7 at Dallas Stars 6 (OT)

Posted by canadian wings fan on 21 February 2015 - 02:58 PM

Weird hunch, but I feel like Kindl's going to have a real solid game. I wouldn't be totally shocked to see him add an assist or two.

Me too. Attitude's not a problem for Kindl, he seems to be working hard off the ice to make it back onto the roster. He has the tools...he honestly does. He's got wheels, he can shoot decent enough and we've seen him good vision during powerplays and moving it up the ice at times. He just needs to not play like a scared little ***** and then I think he can be effective

Posted by TheXym on 21 February 2015 - 01:51 PM

I'm hoping Kindl plays well and racks up a couple of assists. Pairing him with DeKeyser makes sense since it is a bit of a safety valve to allow him to move the puck. Smith/Marchenko is going to gel into a good tandem, IMHO.
