This just means we'll have to sign a washed up Eric Staal now. Kenny's hands must be getting numb from sitting on them for so long.

this had nothing to do with Kenny give me a break

It's just not worth it big man time to hang up the skates and hope he can have a normal life.

#2617203 Grade the Wings 2015 Draft

Posted by blgillett on 29 June 2015 - 11:05 AM

Everyone has their own thoughts on what the wings needed to address in this draft so I thought it might be interesting on how each of us grade how the wing did in this draft.
I feel their top need was right handed defense men and they did end up taking two although I wish they would have gotten one of those top defense men they were gone and the kid they grab will end up being maybe a super star one day. I also question their choice of picking a goalie didn't feel that was a top need. All in all I would give the wings a solid B for this draft. Feel free to disagree with me and give your own grade.

#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

#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.
