#2536123 Who should get cut/traded by game 1 of the season?

Posted by number9 on 12 September 2014 - 09:43 PM

Well I think if were gonna contend again with hank and pav still here were gonna need some of our better younger prospects to help out , unless we pull off a big trade

Cleary miller Andersson are taking up 3 spots and I think we can do a better job in the back end

 

IDK who dnumber9 is, but I gotta say I like the guy!

A trade involving those guys or others like them would be awesome, but it's not gonna happen. No one wants to give up anything good for our scraps. Phasing those guys out and bring up the kids is not a one season/preseason process. They're going to be phased out throughout this season and the coming ones.

 

It's a brand new season. Ferraro Callahan Cleary and Kindl could all surprise us and come back better then ever. Well-liked guys like Tatar could suddenly disappoint. You just don't know. Ericsson surprised everyone. Hudler disappointed everyone. I think all our scraps deserve a fair shot to prove they're not what we have pigeon-holed them to be. If they don't do that I have no problem sending them down for a kid. Lets just be patient and honor the players who deserve a shot.

 

The sudden eagerness to throw Callahan to the wolves particularly irks me. Highly praised by LGW throughout last season for his goal scoring and toughness in GR, now suddenly hie' expendable. People have 2 minutes memories.




#2535923 Ericsson and Alfredsson not 100%

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 11 September 2014 - 07:22 AM

Alfredsson should just retire. He emptied the tank last year in the Olympics. He was completely invisible after the break. I would rather see Mantha in his spot.

******* awesome.
 
Between Jimmy and Monster (and even Mrazek) we've come a long way from this:

I prefer these. They came with cups.

Only on LGWs can a “Cam Fowler Skated at Wings Practice Today” predictably spiral into a trade/Quincey hate thread.  :lol:




#2535672 Detroit offers D Raphael Diaz tryout

Posted by kipwinger on 07 September 2014 - 11:00 AM

He played on the same Swiss team as Zetterberg and Brunner that year.  I'd imagine Z has a good idea of what this guy can do, and if he got offered a tryout I'm sure that Zetterberg must have given a nod of approval.

He's better than you might think.




#2532145 Alfie wants to play

Posted by Jesusberg on 15 July 2014 - 11:40 AM

If Alfie wanted to win the Cup, he obviously wouldn't want to come back to Detroit.
 
So that begs the question.  Do we really want a player on our team that isn't serious about winning the Cup?


Uh... So call a guy out for going to a team you doubt has a chance at winning the cup, then criticize his desire to win?

I don't get it...

He was basically the most consistent forward on the team last season. He was a welcome addition in my eyes. If he's healthy, I'd want the guy back.

#2532552 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

Posted by Echolalia on 19 July 2014 - 12:11 PM

The entertainment center (whatever that ends up being) is being built in a great place. Just on the other side of the freeway, it will be able to expand downtown into a currently blighted area, and just about connect the gap between downtown and midtown, which would make that entire stretch of Woodward healthy and thriving. Gilbert has been buying up tons of blighted real estate with his own projects of revitalization in mind, and it finally looks like Detroit has a competent mayor in Duggan, and he's already done a ton for the city in his short time in office. Detroit has been taking it on the chin for years, but we are on our way back up, and there are several dedicated parties looking to make sure these visions are met.

Edit, the post I responded to has been deleted, which makes my post seem kinda random. Anyway, I'm excited about hearing what the details will be about this arena (and entertainment complex), and what it means for the area in general.

#2533622 Who is YOUR most under-appreciated/unsung Red Wing?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 August 2014 - 03:33 PM

I'd say Holmstrom.

 

Guy was never remotely close to being an All star caliber player, and his 530 career points won't impress anybody who didn't see him play, when they look back at his stats 20 years from now.  

 

However, he was so important, even when he didn't score a point.  Imagine how many goals were scored that he didn't even register a point on, where he was somehow largely responsible for the goal with his screens.
