#2177083 Brad McCrimmon will not return for 2011/2012

Posted by Jesusberg on 19 May 2011 - 09:17 AM

Per Darren Dreger's Twitter:

"In an hour or so, the Detroit Red Wings will announce veteran asst coach Brad McCrimmon won't be back for a 4th year on the Wings bench."

#2176292 Holland or Yzerman?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 16 May 2011 - 07:03 PM

Starting now and for the future?

Yzerman of course. Same reason Emperor Palpatine wanted Luke Skywalker to replace Darth Vader as his new apprentice.

Holland has accomplished a lot here, but every GM moves on eventually, and I would have loved to see Yzerman move in as Wings GM because he'll always be a Wing to me.

Only problem I see is him being conflicted and loyal to players he used to play with, which is a large part of this team. I think he would have felt uncomfortable making moves on some of these players who were his former teammates and friends.

But alas, it's too late. Yzerman is not going to leave Tampa anytime soon. Doesn't strike me as that kind of person.

Holland just re-signed for 5 years anyway. But when that contract is up, seems like a perfect time for Stevie to come home. Let Stevie get more experience under his belt there, and by then most of the guys he played with for years in Detroit will be long gone.

I wonder if Lidstrom and Jagr would be willing to take about 2 million less than they are worth on the open market. Probably not, but is there a way the Wings could get Jagr?

Oh hell no. Run as fast as you can the other way from this one. He'd be about as useful as a screen door on a submarine.

so i go to check out the phoenix yotes page to check out their status. the main headline is about the coyotes staying. The picture is the whole phoenix bench cheering at HOME. take a close look at the few "red wings" fans behind the bench? i think its things like this that piss me off. what do you guys think?

i couldnt figure out how to just load the picture and im not sure how long the headline will stay, but PLEASE take the time to look at this rediculous FAIL

He "thinks" he is. No one else has been quoted as such.... Sorry Huds.


#2169453 Howard......

Posted by pjgj13 on 08 May 2011 - 09:08 PM

Where are al the "fans" that didn't think he could give us a chance in the playoffs??

If not for him, we are swept or at best, definitely done at 5 games. If not for him, we are down by 5 or 6 tonight!!

Jimmy has DEFINITELY proven he belongs as a starter for the next few years!!

If not for deflected goals, we may be UP 3-1 in the series right now!!

Helm needs to put the short handed breakaway into the back of the net.

I blame Joe Pavelski being an an excellent diver and the refs eating it up.

Your team ought to be ashamed of itself.
