#2255494 Tomas Tatar

Posted by kerism17 on 12 February 2012 - 06:52 PM

Obviously you have never seen him play. He is a St. Louis clone. He has a sniper shot and is fleet of foot. Plays bigger than he is, and has a head for the game. He is behind Nyquvist because of age, but is ahead of the other three you speak of... Even though all three of the prospects could end up being better players in the long run. Out of our forward prospects I would list Tatar second behind Gustav or third behind Calle. I still say when you are looking at them, you have to take in account of who they are playing.

I know it is hard to tell when looking at a stat sheet... but then again Tatar has been playing against much harder competition in the AHL. Tatar is playing professionals. Going up against the NHL prospects.

The kid is still a kid, and yet he is one of three players in our system that is ready to play in the NHL right now. I just don't get how you can look at a stable full of excellent horses and say this one is worthless because these other ones are winning more easy races.




I have actually seen him along with most of our prospects play a lot and I'm really not overly impressed with Tatar at all. I honestly dont see him as a player any better than what Hudler has given us.
Are you kidding? A Martin St. Louis clone? Wow.. If he can become 1/10 the player St. Louis has been in the NHL I would be extremely impressed. Just not going to happen.
I Would be willing to bet that in 5 years time all of the other prospects I mentions will be huge impact players in the NHL (hopefully with the Red Wings) and Tatar will either be traded or the new whipping boy.
I hope some of the other GMs in the league think as highly of him as you and some others do, and we can package him in a deal to get a real sniper at the deadline.


#2255237 Joe Thornton... class act

It would've been a perfect time to send someone out to drill him in the face, if we had someone like that of course.

#2254576 Red Wings hope Winter Classic can persuade Nicklas Lidstrom to return

Posted by Dominator2005 on 10 February 2012 - 08:55 AM

http://www.mlive.com..._of_winter.html

The Red Wings are turning up the pressure on Lidstrom to return next season, telling him and anyone who'll listen that the 41-year-old defenseman shouldn't retire with such a huge event looming, a chance to play the Toronto Maple Leafs before a world-record crowd of 115,000.

"I'm hoping this game will convince Nick, and with how our team is playing, to

come back for one more year," general manager Ken Holland said. "The possibilities are incredible."

The ever-optimistic coach Mike Babcock is convinced Lidstrom will return.

"He'll be back. He'll be back," Babcock said. "He's too good to quit and our team's too good. I was concerned this year was going to be his last if our team wasn't good enough. Our team is good enough and he's good enough.

"I think there's one more (year) for sure. He's never going to let his skill diminish and he's not interested in playing on a bad team. I know (Tomas) Holmstrom wants to play and he's working on him every day. They're like two kids together."

Lidstrom said he'll make his decision after the season.

"It (Winter Classic) is only one game, but it's an intriguing one," Lidstrom said. "We'll have to wait and see."

For what it's worth, he added, "I think it's going to be an unbelievable feeling to walk through that (Michigan Stadium) tunnel and play a hockey game."

Teammates are hopeful.

"I think this will be perfect." Niklas Kronwall said. "It really gives him another reason to continue for another year. I think it's pretty good timing."

Said Pavel Datsyuk: "He's going to play at least two more years."

#2253506 Rick Nash?

Red Wings will not overpay for Nash or Parise. They will not be Red Wings during their primes, this isn't NHL 12.


#2253531 Operation Dumbo Drop.

Posted by Majsheppard on 08 February 2012 - 07:38 AM

Sorry about the title, but I thought it might make it easier to find this thread down the line.

I was reading about the Big House Winter classic again, when I read that it might be hard to impossible to get tickets for the thing if you are not a season ticket holder.

This seems absurd to me due to the size of the stadium, but I know tickets will be hard to get so...

I thought our community could be used to help us all out. Enter Operation Dumbo Drop.

I say we use this thread to post updates of when tickets will go on sale. We can try to help each other get in line for the precious tickets and make sure that Wings fans are the first to get the few their are to get. I say we find out the maximum amount of tickets we can buy as well and try to buy the maximum and come here to sell the tickets back at FACE VALUE! Let's not get greedy trying to make money off of each other. Sell them at 10x the price to a Leafs fan, but try and make the priority to get people from here on.



In short, we should try to get as many of the die hard fans in for this once in a lifetime event. Also try and get us in to all of the other events at Comerica as well.

What say you?


#2253107 Patrick Eaves injury

Posted by dirtydangles on 06 February 2012 - 07:05 PM

I'm not sure where exactly Eaves got hit, and if this would have even made a difference for him, but the fact that it's been quoted as a head injury, I'm gonna say this:

As cool as hockey helmets are, and as much as i like them, the time has come to upgrade them with a major overhaul. With the increased speed of the game, the increased size and strength of the players, the increased velocity of the average player's slapshot, and the increased knowledge of long term brain effects of sudden impact, the hockey player needs similar protection as the rally car/motorcycle driver.

It can be designed in such a way with the classic body lines of a hockey helmet so as to resemble the overall shape, but it's got to be beefed up.

Why is this never talked about by any of hockey's talking heads?


completely agree. look at what football players go out on the field with - massive helmets with face masks. They aren't moving half as fast as hockey players but still wear them.

#2253467 Pick Your Poison

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 February 2012 - 08:42 PM

These are all problems, but the lack of a great top 6 scorer is the biggest.

Special teams is a streaky thing anyway, and as others have pointed out, a sniper would improve our powerplay.
