#2436810 Gustav Nyquist (whats next)

Posted by blgillett on 16 September 2013 - 08:41 AM

I am being completely honest to all of you. I now am in complete and total shock. Maybe I am crazy but here it goes. I love Cleary and we got him for cheap, but my question now "what is going to happen
to Gustav Nyquist?
He played very well for us last season.  A player that is young and speedy, a player some slotted on the second line if Allfy was playing on line one,  a player I couldn't wait to watch this season
He is going to be a player in Grand Rapids?

From every thing I've hear he will start in GR but just long enough to clear of some payroll and a couple of forwards. Now it sounds like Helm will be on the Injured list again this year

#2434640 How much do the Wings need another defenseman?

Posted by blgillett on 01 September 2013 - 07:32 PM

I truly feel that the only reason our D did so well is because our forwards play both ways so well. Yes we need a first line D-man to win the cup

If we could move some "dead money" on pine riders for a good defenseman I'd have to rethink my stance on Holland and eat crow.

We need a top pairing Defenseman and I feel we could be a real contender for Eastern champs

#2427330 is anyone happy right now?

Posted by blgillett on 05 July 2013 - 03:09 PM

I love our adds would still like a top D-man and then we still need to make some cuts. Would also love Brunner sign but I'm excited at our chances now

I still think we are after a top 4 D-man moving Sammy will help with the money but we have to many player already so I like to think Sammy Eaves hate to say it but Emerton then Totoo if we sign Brunner

Yes turn the game on and turn your sound off. This is the only way you can deal with those ignorant morons

#2365815 Should Visors Be Mandatory In The NHL

#2365812 Do We Really Need a New Stadium?

Posted by blgillett on 06 March 2013 - 05:45 PM

If for nothing else for more Bathrooms it bad not to mention the dangerous steps. Don't get me wrong I will miss the Joe when its gone lots of memories there but its time to join the rest of the league with a modern house. I have also been seeing a change in ice surface last 5 years we used to have a great sheet of ice now the puck is bouncing all over the place. We need new lines under the floor not that that can't be done there but is it worth doing there.

#2350379 Emmerton

#2316793 The Next Move

Posted by blgillett on 07 July 2012 - 03:18 PM

Holland needs to go. Hes not doing his job.

And get who for a GM some one who isn't half as good as Kenny he is the best in the business bar none

#2315578 Young Guns

Posted by blgillett on 05 July 2012 - 09:39 AM

Bertuzzi, samuelsson, and holmstrom. Stop fooling yourself. Our gm is a dumbass.

How quickly we forget Ken Holland made us the most successful organization in the last 20 years

#2315229 The Next Move

Posted by blgillett on 04 July 2012 - 08:16 PM

Fire Ken Holland. He is worthless. He's wasting time signing guys that dont help us (sammuelson, bertuzzi, tootoo, gustavson) and not signing anyone that does help us. This is the definition of a bad gm. All thats left for him to do now is give Holmstrom another 2 years. This offseason had to be big for Detroit. Shultz, Parise, and Suterwould have vaulted Detroit to the top again. Instead - total strikeout AND overpay/extend for complete CRAP. Holland - you suck.

it to bad that people are that Ignorant and don't realize just how good Ken Holland is he is by far the best GM in the business
