#2369346 Time to blow it up and rebuild

And the cough medicine...

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......

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

Per Adam Proteau 

"Ian White healthy scratch for Detroit + rumor of Hurricanes trading for veteran blueliner soon = Hmmmmnnn."


#2361924 2/27 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Kings 2

Posted by robb himself on 27 February 2013 - 12:51 PM

Wings 6 (Brunner x 3, Franzen, Zetterberg, Tootoo)

Kings 3 (Carter, Kopitar, Penner)



#2354671 2/13 GDT : St. Louis Blues 4 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

How Cleary is still on this team instead of Nyquist I just dont know...



#2346138 Team next season?

Posted by robb himself on 25 January 2013 - 01:43 PM

Jarnkrok is making this team out of camp next year.


Datsyuk - Zetterberg - Brunner


Nyquist - Jarnkrok - Franzen


Abdelkader - Helm - Bertuzzi


Tatar - Sheahan - Tootoo




EDIT- forgot about Samuelsson...it would be a shame if Tatar didnt get a roster spot because of  Samuelsson...



Kronwall - (new d man)


Smith - Ericcson


Lashoff - Quincey




I have a feeling that Filppula will traded for blueline depth.

#2346129 Nail Yakupov Goal Celebration.

Posted by robb himself on 25 January 2013 - 01:31 PM

I have ZERO problem with it.


It was an emotional game (having a game tying goal called back with 1 minute to go).


He was excited. Its as simple as that.


I think it was great

I like where your heads at, but there is no way I am unfollowing any of them. I like to hear what's going on and unfollowing all the players, agents, and gm's would do me no good.

#2329875 KHL/Overseas Games

Posted by robb himself on 24 September 2012 - 11:52 AM

Datsyuk just soccer headed the puck in off his own rebound for a goal in his first game for CSKA

Absolutely amazing

#2329315 Captaincy

Posted by robb himself on 18 September 2012 - 03:32 PM

I will be happy with either Zetterberg or Datsyuk as Captain but it will probably be

Zetterberg - C
Datsyuk - A
Kronwall - A
Filppula - A (if rotating)

#2325656 Hockey News sees us finishing 7th

Posted by robb himself on 17 August 2012 - 11:14 AM

Well it's a damn good thing the game is played on the ice and not decided by sport writers. The Red Wings have a new look, players will step up, everything's going to be just fine. I personally think it will be better than fine and we will surprise a lot of sport writers and fans this year. I can't wait until puck drop to see what we really have.


Agree 100%
I think the Wings are going to surprise a lot of people this year.

#2324036 Our current forwards.

Posted by robb himself on 06 August 2012 - 02:44 PM

I dont mind the look of our Forwards at all...I have a lot of faith in Nyquist and Brunner.

Franzen - Datsyuk - Brunner

Filppula- Zetterberg - Nyquist

Bertuzzi - Helm - Samuelsson

Cleary - Abdelkader - Tootoo

13th/14th/15th -Mursak/Emmerton/Miller (someone needs to be traded)

Eaves - LTIR

I really like that lineup.

#2312898 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by robb himself on 02 July 2012 - 01:58 PM

I for one, absolutely love this signing. He will bring a physical presence to that the Wings have needed for a while.
