#2382816 Why do you cheer for the Red Wings?

Posted by Jesusberg on 10 April 2013 - 04:33 PM

Because for as much hockey as I have ever, or will ever watch, nothing makes me happier than when a Red Wings' player scores a goal. It's a natural gut reaction.

#2381418 Riley Sheahan recalled

Can't wait for another "grab a spot and take hold of it" quote from Babs. 


"You know, he's gotta ask himself, 'Do I want to be an NHL player?'. Does he? We'll see. I think he's got a good compete level; good composure. If he keeps it simple, he'll do well."

Post game: "He did well. Good for him."

#2380250 Fear of the East?

Posted by Jesusberg on 04 April 2013 - 02:18 PM

I think the fears stem less from direct records and more from just the style of play fro teams like Boston and Philly.  They try to rough you up.  And while our short term record may be good against them, it will definitely have an effect towards the end of the year. 


And the Ducks and Blues haven't done this to the Wings for years? To a lesser extent, the Sharks' cycle game has killed us. There are big/nasty teams in each conference. 

#2379930 Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

For every one saying Holland lacked the "balls" to do anything, I've already posted this but:

“We offered some of (prospects). At the end of the day someone didn’t like them as much as we do or they liked someone else’s players better.”


He made an effort to acquire someone. Other teams outbid him. Maybe it's not a matter of him not making an effort, but a matter of our prospects not being viewed as highly as someone else's? If Holland moved Nyquist, Mrazek and a 1st and 2nd to get Pominville, would you be happy? I'd be pissed off.

Just his biceps. He had to sculpt his guns at the office.


#2377805 Holland: "We don't need depth...Need a top guy"

Posted by Jesusberg on 01 April 2013 - 04:38 PM

April Fools'? I'm surprised Holland is actually admitting we need top six talent. I'd be pleasantly surprised if he can add something for the right price.

#2373046 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

Posted by Jesusberg on 24 March 2013 - 05:03 PM

The vibe I'm getting is that he'll definitely sign with the Red Wings in the next few days. Also, I know a lot of people are pretty excited about the kid here, but I hope no one expects him to put up a ton of points, or be super flashy off the bat. Maybe eventually he develops into that role, but from what I've seen (and heard second hand) he's a really quiet type of player who does all the little things right.

He's been touted as a Brad Stuart type of player, and that's what the Red Wings really need, imo. I'm pretty pumped to get him myself, but I feel like I know what to expect out of him (all around solid play).

#2370793 Helm: "Minor Setback", still out indefinitely, *merged*

Posted by Jesusberg on 18 March 2013 - 03:45 PM

Ok, I didn't think we would have to resort to this, but I think it's time to get Helm the same surgery that Wolverine got to fuse adamantium to his bones. Let's all pool our money together and make it happen.

#2365714 Holland says those dreaded words, "Our Deadline Addition"

Posted by Jesusberg on 06 March 2013 - 11:55 AM

This frustrates me just as much as anyone, but I think it's pretty clear that this team is in a rebuilding mode. While any play-off team has a chance to win the cup, this is probably the furthest I've felt the team's been from being a real contender in some time. I'd rather not mortgage the future or the rebuild just to kind of half-ass a chance at Stanley.

Cleary is walking after this season. Bertuzzi and Samuelsson will be making way after next season. In that time we're going to see some of the younger guys (Tatar, Gus, Andersson, Sheahan/Ferraro) jump into the line-up. Now, if Cleary and the others are re-upped, then I'd probably lose my mind, but for the first time in a long time, it feels like we're going to get a real influx of youth in the next 2-3 years.

#2365709 Franzen Is The Wings Most Undeserved Whipping Boy

Posted by Jesusberg on 06 March 2013 - 11:39 AM

Last night wasn't just about talent, though. He put forth a good effort, got in the right places to score and looked to be a step quicker than in previous games. Take away the goal, and he still created lots of chances and had a solid game. Really hope he can continue to push it.

#2365052 Franzen Is The Wings Most Undeserved Whipping Boy

Posted by Jesusberg on 05 March 2013 - 03:11 PM

He was floating in Chicago, but he also just got back from being injured. Before his injury, I thought he looked decent. People are just pissed off because he isn't scoring goals, but he still had 9 points through 12 games. He's played on a line with two guys who are in the top 25 players for SOG.

Give the guy a few games to adjust from the injury, and if he's still floating and doing crap all, then ok... but before the injury he looked fine to me, especially at under 4 million.

#2361550 Gus Nyquist...

Posted by Jesusberg on 26 February 2013 - 01:54 PM

I'd like to see Gus do whatever Tatar did.


I don't know about you guys, but I was thinking Tatar was on his way out before the season started and then he showed up and started playing the way he has.


I'm all for this as well. Tatar in 2010-11 and Tatar in 2012-13 are two very different players. The guy could barely stay onside during his stint a couple years back.

In his 11 games with the team this year he's looked poised, fast and shown he's got a great set of hands. Even if Gus takes another year in GR (it's a real possibility), I'd be fine with it so long as he improves in the same way Tatar did.

Filppula hasn't played well enough to run his own line with Tatar and Nyquist, but I'd like to see


Could switch up the Griffs, but I think Brunner and Z shoot enough and Nyquist could be the playmaker of the line.

#2353835 Howard = Average

Posted by Jesusberg on 10 February 2013 - 02:20 PM

I'd hate to see the score of this game if he was a below average goalie. Thank god for average Howie.
