#2523556 Trading up?

Posted by Nevermind on 11 June 2014 - 10:05 PM

florida wld not do that

#2524345 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

I started to type that people shouldn't freak out because there's no way Cleary is going to be a Red Wings, then I realized I typed basically the exact same thing before Holland signed him last summer.

Still, I really don't think it'll happen this time.   :blink:


I'm a big Cleary fan, but enough's enough.

He's going to GR to be a mentor, only way he returns to the wings is if he beats out a kid for a spot. Don't see how that's so hard to grasp.


It isn't hard to grasp, it is just hard to 100% believe - considering he beat out Nyquist last season when he had absolutely no business being on the team in the first place, it is not out of the realm of possibility to believe they might inexplicably give him a spot over some other youngster to start this season as well (Jurco, Mantha maybe). I think that's what is worrying most folks.


My other issue is, I don't even particularly want him taking up a spot on GR either.

I love Dano, always will. But the guy is toast and he has 50 year old knees. Waste of time, just move on.

Verbal agreement? Clearly did not/cannot hold up his end of the deal. Agreement has been broken, so no dishonor done in not signing him.

#2523795 Wings sign Tomas Nosek to 2 year entry level deal

:blink: Really? Ok, Leino, Brunner, Brunnstrom...does that answer your question?


Leino - traded for some picks. Brunner - helped us immensely in the playoffs that year, and one of our better goalscorers that season. Brunnstrom - played like 6 games.


Which one of these signings hurt the team again?

#2515789 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by joesuffP on 25 April 2014 - 01:17 PM

Franzen has 11 playoff points the last 3 years. Scored 1 goal the last 3 months of the year until our eventual elimination. Those 5 goals in 7 games is a streak he should have gone on 4-5 times in a year not once.

Gus has 23 goals in 28 games. Now that's a real streak that got us into the playoffs, not Franzen's 5 goals in February

Here's Nyquists WC goal against Denmark.

#2521433 Abdelkader ejected for "vicious" hit at World Championships

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 22 May 2014 - 12:11 PM

For starters, that writer is an idiot.  It wasn't late and he didn't leave his feet before contact.  Part of the reason the hit was so vicious is Sobotka was still following through on his shot and couldn't protect himself.  People need to stop watching gifs and slow motion replays and actually watch the video at regular speed.  


I don't know about international standards but by NHL rules the only issue is the strides he took before the hit. That could make it charging.  To me it looks like he's hustling back to make a play then veers into the hit, but it gave him a whole lot of momentum and made this hit a nasty one.


As for the rest, he does contact the head but he makes solid contact through the body.  That's legal in the NHL because of the solid body contact (I don't know about international rules).  He doesn't leave his feet before contact.  


If Sobotka gets up, it's likely nothing happens here.  Even if it were in the NHL though, because Sobotka doesn't get up it's likely getting a suspension.

#2519975 Regner: Next year could be Babcock's last

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 10 May 2014 - 07:56 PM



I know he is a good coach, but I grow tired of his lineup decisions. Remember, he only played the kids because he was forced to due to injury. If Cleary hadn't been injured, he damn sure would have been in the lineup. Look how Bertuzzi kept getting in, even though the kids were outplaying him.


bring in Larionov.

That's not true. Cleary was scratched before he was injured. Bertuzzi only got in 1 playoff game when no one was looking effective. He was playing before late in the season because we were missing pretty much everyone and the kids were still in the lineup so he wasn't taking their spots.


Beware of the grass on the other side.

#2519838 Regner: Next year could be Babcock's last

Posted by VM1138 on 09 May 2014 - 11:21 AM

I hate articles like this.  They're increasingly common.


Regner is clearly reaching for conclusions.  Nothing here indicates next year will be his last. 


What Babcock has stated in other interviews as well is that he can get a job anywhere, so he's not concerned with getting some long term big-money deal.  Only people who worry about the future of their careers do that.  He just wants to take it year by year.  That means he could be here another 10, or he could be gone next year.


Either way, nothing here supports Babcock's leaning one way or the other.  But hey, page hits, I guess.


I wrote this in another thread, but the whole coach getting stale thing doesn't really apply to Babcock anymore.  There's such a huge turnover in players that next year's team and the one after that will be almost entirely different than the ones during most of his tenure.  So it's like getting a fresh start.


Plus, Babcock loves coaching young guys and building their game.  He can do that in Detroit just as easily as anywhere else.  At least here he has competent management to work with.

I thought I read something that even if he wasn't coaching he still wanted to stay in Detroit, possibly moving to upper management. Am I dreaming that or is that a possibility?
