#2261837 2/23 GDT : Canucks 4 at Red Wings 3 (SO)

Posted by Nightfall on 23 February 2012 - 11:00 PM

That's the beauty of his acquisition. He's on our 3rd pair, but he is a bonafide 2nd pair guy. If there's one thing Kennys done well this year is build depth, we are in a great position going into the trade deadline.

I really don't mind Quincey and Erickson as the 3rd D-line pairing. Yea, Erickson hasn't been stellar, but I think thats a damn good 3rd line pairing for the NHL.

I have gotten that same feeling in the past 24 hours with the moves going on with the wings. It just feels like the Quincey trade was a precursor to something else. Maybe I'm just being hopeful that something more is going on but Kenny always seems to make deals that no one is expecting. Even though the Wings have been playing really well and have good chemistry the only thing that matters is getting it done in the post season. We can't afford to lose to the Sharks again this year! I'm sure Kenny has a plan and I do think there will be another move by the deadline.

In a related note my close friend works for the Maple Leafs and I'm not sure where he is getting his info from but he claims the Red Wings have submitted some sort of offer for Grabovski. Have no idea where he heard this and it shouldn't be taken to seriously but just thought that was interesting.

losing arguably the best forward in the game isn't going to affect them at all?

sure. but you said quite differently:

any hope of finishing first in the western conference is now gone.


see the difference?

Wings have a history of losing their best players to injuries, they have a history of other players stepping up.

So why are the Wings giving up a first round pick for a guy they drafted in the 4th round and then wound up waving for nothing? If he was that good to begin with they would not of waived him but now you give up a first for a cast off? Is Kenny Holland just feeling sympathy for Stevie Yzerman or does our team not believe in drafting in the first round? Brian Burke wouldn't of made this deal for God's sake!

Honestly, this just sounds like Kindl is done in Detroit now...


Also, f*** Meech for this. It is all his fault.

Yes please! I was really bummed to see him leave, although at the time he really deserved to be playing regular minutes in the NHL instead of playing a few games here and there between grand rapids stints. He's had time to develop in the NHL into a solid defenseman and I'm happy to have him back, if true.
A first round pick might seem heavy for someone that we had just a few years ago, but I think it's worth it, given the position were in, the fact that Quincey is still young, still has upside, and draft picks are never a guaranteed NHL player; even 1st rounders. I'll take it.

#2259252 freeredwings.tv stops streaming NHL games

Posted by Gizmo on 20 February 2012 - 09:34 AM

I would have loved to continue providing the service, but you can thank the NHL for ruining the party.


While I confess to having watched a streamed game or two after losing the battle for control of the family TV, I don't "blame" the NHL for anything in the C&D letter. Let's not kid ourselves, unauthorized streaming of copyrighted programming is blatantly illegal. It doesn't matter if it's "for profit" or done as a service for fellow fans. I'm sorry that you no doubt had the daylights scared out of you when you opened the letter, but could you really not see this coming? You registered a domain that screams "Hey, free illegal streaming of Red Wings games over here!!!!" I mean, dude......!

It's also not a Crosby-lovin'-Bettman thing. Show me one major sporting body that doesn't defend their broadcasts in such a manner.


#2258413 Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game.

Bleeding teal, baby. Good luck sharks! No further comments will be made; hate all you want. I'm outta here.

You can end the streak - we'll settle for our playoff success. :)

And by the way, it's impossible to come to a Wings board and be a "fellow" Sharks fan.

"Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game."

As a fellow shark, and hockey fan, I'd like to bid you a good luck to your next game. All I know is that your streak must end. It will eventually, I do not know if it would be by the sharks, but regardless, I shall take pleasure in it. Regardless of what team, you guys are setting yourselves for a great sigh. A long one.

Anyhow, win or lose, It'll be a hell of a game to watch.

BUT....

If the sharks break your famous NHL record of yours.... oh lord, your will never heard the end of the sharkie fans.... lol.


With regards, and with great anticipation of tmw's game,
