#2471671 1/9 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Sharks 4

Posted by matt198913 on 09 January 2014 - 11:29 PM

Future of this team is bright guys. Watching Tartar and Andersson muck it up. All we need now is to get Jurco Sheahan up this year. Mantha and Spoul next year, and get this franchise back to dominance.




#2428530 So.. what are our expectations for this roster?

Posted by matt198913 on 07 July 2013 - 02:17 PM

I just don't see why some folks still are not buying Abby. Great defensively and has some definite grit to his game. Power forward. Hopefully he can shut up the critics this year.




#2427849 is anyone happy right now?

Posted by matt198913 on 05 July 2013 - 11:11 PM

There is just no pleasing some of you guys here. Holland changed this team for the  better and the depth couldn't be better. If you think Tartar isn't going to get a fair shot you're crazy.

Ah, but this is the genius of Holland you guys are always talking about in Detroit, right? We let go a young Swiss guy (Brunner) whose first NHL experience ever has him top of the heaps in Wings playoff scoring. Obviously that is a bad sign. TIsk tisk. Too much scoring. And why would we want someone who can actually score in the playoffs when we have so many others? Why would we want a forward whose first inclination is to shoot the darn puck? No no, we'll be much better off with a 40 year old top six guy and some other center who up until today 75% of wings fan didn't even know existed. Yea, Holland is a real genius.


Weiss is an outstanding player and I'm sure quite a few wings fans knew that. No one has signed Brunner right? Ok so we will see what happens. Even if we don't I like this team going forward an for the year after. Alfie Bert and Sammy all come off the cap next year.


#2426591 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Posted by matt198913 on 05 July 2013 - 11:28 AM

3.5 that's it. If he scores 30 goals plays big minutes on power play, are you kidding me. It's a steal for that money.

Ooooo why Alfie and Iginla!!!!!? What Jagar wasn't available


#2424876 Red Wings won't pursue David Clarkson

Posted by matt198913 on 02 July 2013 - 05:40 PM

Again I'm ok with it. No need to give these guys the farm.


#2422131 Nyquist or Tatar

Posted by matt198913 on 25 June 2013 - 09:50 AM

Both

Good luck junior Wings


#2417936 Other Rule Changes? (Trapezoid?)

Posted by matt198913 on 05 June 2013 - 05:15 PM

Another rule I hate. The trapezoid took away all the work a goalie might do into handing the puck so the D man won't get killed. It was designed for more goals all its done is create more injuries.


You want to change a rule, try hybrid icing.... That's one that on paper and on screen looks great. No more guys getting their legs broken chasing down the puck!

Honestly this team is a player or two away... Tweak the roster get a power forward get rid of Franzen, get Helm back get Dekeyser and they will be a top team next year.

It's really just unreal that coverage can be that one sided

3-1 Wings
Smith Datsyuk and Abby
Shaw for them


#2414117 Trade Smith ASAP!

Posted by matt198913 on 28 May 2013 - 06:26 PM

The same people on here dissing Smith will be the same ones all over Dekeyser when his wheels fall off. If ya actually read the stats in the playoffs Smith hasn't been that bad. 11 hits 15 blocked shots 5 points and -3. Pretty darn good for a rookie Dman.
