#2552725 11/30 GDT - Canucks 3 at Red Wings 5

Posted by robb himself on 30 November 2014 - 11:31 AM

Please someone tell me we can beat the Canucks. I live in Kelowna, it's about a 4 hours drive from Vancouver. They have some of the most irritating goddamn fans in the world. Bunch of delusional band wagon jumping know nothing crybabies.  I will be absolutely devastated if we can't beat them. Our goalie plays better. We have more heart, and they haven't beaten us in regulation in like three years. And my dog is wearing her lucky Red Wings collar and bandana (Dekeyser is her favorite). So someone give me some support, tell me how they will grind them out. LGRW

Well well well....a fellow Wings fan in Kelowna! Its nice to know I'm not alone! and yes, the Canucks fans around here are some of the worst fans in all of hockey.

#2524019 Jiri Sekac

I'm not sure if I should post this here, or in the rumours section so Mods feel free to toss it where ever you like.


I was looking into highly sought after UFA forward Jiri Sekac to learn more about him and when I googled him I found this : http://redwings.nhl.....htm?dpid=10614

which is a profile for him on the Red Wings offical site.


Does this mean that they are going to sign him?


What do you guys think?

IF we make the playoffs and IF we became 100% healthy for Game 1, what would the lineup look like?


I would go with this:


Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Franzen


Nyquist - Weiss - Alfredsson


Tatar - Legwand - Jurco


Sheahan - Helm - Abdelkader



What do you guys think?

Posted by robb himself on 06 December 2013 - 01:31 PM

Quincey and Cleary for Brunner and a late pick.

#2379762 Nyquist, Tatar, dekeyser

Posted by robb himself on 03 April 2013 - 04:31 PM

Well if we make the playoffs,  and everyone is healthy, I would go with this line up....


Filppula - Zetterberg - Brunner


Franzen - Datsyuk - Nyquist


Abdelkader - Helm - Tatar


Miller - Andersson - Tootoo









Kronwall - Ericsson


Kindl - DeKeyser


Smith - Lashoff









#2375242 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

Posted by robb himself on 28 March 2013 - 02:45 PM

According to @nugegood (Tommy Stites) "Danny DeKeyser will sign with the Detroit #RedWings tonight around 7:30. This is from a WMU source"


Sounding more and more likely that he will sign with us.

And the bath salts...

#2367977 Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

Posted by robb himself on 12 March 2013 - 11:22 AM

While bringing up Nyquist is great news, sending down Tatar sucks.

Babcock better put Nyquist into the top 6 and I also think its time that Eaves gets a game up there.

These are the lines I would start the game with.

Nyquist- Zetterberg - Brunner
Franzen - Datsyuk - Eaves
Cleary - Andersson - Abdelkdaer
Miller - Emmerton - Tootoo



EDIT: Just heard that Filppula might be back for Wednesday and that they are practising with these lines:


Filppula - Zetterberg - Brunner


Franzen - Datsyuk - Nyquist


Abdelkader - Andersson - Cleary


Miller - Emmerton - Tootoo




That top 6 looks not bad at all.

#2367961 Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

Posted by robb himself on 12 March 2013 - 11:01 AM

I still think it comes down to wanting to give Nyquist a look with the big club again to see what he can do.  That means either Tatar or Andersson had to get sent down.  You're simply swapping a LW for a LW instead of a center.  Really, I wouldn't be too shocked to see Andersson get sent back down soon in a swap for Ferraro or Sheahan.  It's all about giving some of the young guys a chance to start auditioning for a full-time spot next year a little early.  They've got an extended look at Tatar now, let's bring the next guy in line up to see what he can do.



The frustrating part is seeing the kids produce and compete night in night out at the NHL level and get sent down when we have Cleary, and Abdelkader on our "2nd line" while struggling to score goals.


Its sad that Tatar Nyquist and Andersson will all eventually get sent back down at some point this season as the team gets healthy.

#2364800 This should scare us all......

Posted by robb himself on 04 March 2013 - 06:54 PM

I think I will throw up if Cleary is re-signed.
