#2278928 Favorite Play of the 2002 Cup Run

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 06 April 2012 - 04:02 PM

So hard to choose, so many amazing memories on that run. I guess I'd have to give the edge to Patty Wahhh trying to show off but then getting owned so hard! Again tho, so many great moments it's hard to pick one over another.

#2274628 Quincey vs. Stuart

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 27 March 2012 - 07:43 PM

Well, first and foremost let's hope Lidstrom will go one more year. If he doesn't, then I think it's almost a certainty that Stuart will be re-signed. I know Brad wants to be with his family in California, but with the cap space we have I'm sure Holland will offer him more $ than any of the Cali teams. And the Red Wings 'playoff guarantee' year after year should also help sway his decision. Plus, the deal would likely be only 2-3 years tops, then he can go back to Cali.

I don't think it's really a question of Stuart or Quincey. From what I've heard Holland is definitely sticking with Quincey for the next few years. So it really just comes down to what Lidstrom does, and how much space we have. If Lidstrom does play for one more year (please hockey Gods let it happen), we still have a chance to sign Stuart, but we might not be able to overpay for him. If that happens let's just hope his desire to win more Stanley cups outweighs spending a few more months with his family for just a few more seasons.

#2273078 Which team would piss you off the most if they won the cup?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 23 March 2012 - 04:37 AM

As much as I would hate to see the Pens win it, nothing would annoy me more than to see the Canucks hoist the cup.

#2219704 Who would you pick to have back on this team?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 29 October 2011 - 09:45 AM

Steve Yzerman during ANY season of his career.

#2212302 2012-13 Realignment Leak?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 05 October 2011 - 01:13 AM

I know I'm probably in the minority here. But I really don't want to move to the East. The West has so much better competition, and so many big and small rivalries with us, which in turn means many more exciting great Red Wings games. I really hope we stay in the West, despite the time zone issue.

#2203758 Compilation of Yzerman Playoff Goals

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 15 August 2011 - 02:10 AM

Almost brings a tear to my eye. He's been my idol since I was 4 years old back in 1988. What a legend. And for my money the greatest hockey player of all time. Could score with the best of them, yet was amazing defensively. The total package player. And he's somehow very modest. Still really miss the guy. I must admit I did shed tears during his retirement ceremony. I just hope one day he returns to the organization. I will always rock my red CCM Yzerman jersey during the playoffs. What a warrior. STEVE YZERMAN FOREVER

#2202960 ISO: Federov Video

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 08 August 2011 - 11:12 PM

Who is Sergei Federov? :P

Not that it's a big deal. But it's always been sort of annoying to see so many ppl misspell this guy's name. I swear I see more "Federov"s than I do "Fedorov"s. And im not talking from random ppl. I'm talking about "Red Wings fans." The guy played here for 13 years and won 3 Stanley Cups and half of us can't even spell the guys name?? Come onnn maaaaaaannnn. lol Must be a bunch of noob Wings fans that started watching in 2008.

#2200818 Your Favorite Red Wing Player

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 24 July 2011 - 11:09 PM

Same here. Also with me, it's all-time favorite athlete as well. I think it's safe to say I'll go to the grave as Yzerman being my all-time favorite. No one will pass "The Captain".

Could not agree more. Steve is by far my favorite athlete of all time and has been my idol since i was 4 years old(1988).

#2198190 Apparently, we were finalists for Vokoun?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 12 July 2011 - 05:57 PM

I'm annoyed by the notion that no matter what, Jimmy has the #1 spot locked up. If we're choosing between him, Joey Mac, and Ozzie, then yes Jimmy is the #1 for sure. But Vokoun is a different story. If he were a part of the equation, it's only fair to let him and Jimmy battle it out and prove on the ice who deserves the #1 spot. And that's what Kenny should've told Vokoun. Cause if he had, then maybe he would've signed with us. Obviously he's not gonna sign here if he's presented a backup role only. In my eyes, it should ALWAYS be a "may the better man win" situation. Especially with a former all star goalie like Vokoun.

#2190683 Bettman Re-Alignment Proposal

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 28 June 2011 - 03:35 AM

I know we should be in the east in terms of where the state of Michigan is. But I love so many of the rivalries and mini-rivalries we have in the West. I will definitely miss facing western teams on a regular basis. I'm still really hoping we don't move to the East.

#2187969 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 22 June 2011 - 03:38 PM

Jagr would be an almost guaranteed 60 point player for us, if not more than that. I have absolutely no problem with signing him to a one year deal. In fact, I'm really crossing my fingers that he'll be a Red Wing next season.

#2176697 Sharks Accuse Canucks of Diving

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 18 May 2011 - 12:52 AM

Setoguchi, Pavelski and Thornton are the most consistent and pathetic divers in the league. So this is obviously quite laughable!

#2176696 Which conference would you rather have the Wings in?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 18 May 2011 - 12:43 AM

I guess I'm in the minority here. I understand where people are coming from in terms of travel and time zones. But the WC is much deeper overall. Plus, I love and enjoy a lot of our current rivalries and mini-rivalries. Also I dislike many more teams in the west than I do in the east, so for me it makes for more exciting, intense games.

#2158081 What Teams Scare Us Right Now?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 26 April 2011 - 06:18 AM

This is definitely a 'pick your poison' type of situation. Pros and cons for each team really.

The Sharks: they have a dynamic offense, but their goaltending has been spotty all season long. The Red Wings have an equally dynamic offense, and when healthy are the deeper team. If we stay healthy we should be able to take them out in a 7 game series. Plus, the revenge factor would be an added bonus.

The Preds: they have a very all around solid team. They can put pucks in the net, yet they play good team defense as well. And not only do they have a great goaltender, but also a really good backup in Lindback. But, the Wings have a much more potent offense and a much deeper overall team. And about to get two superstars back (Hank & The Mule). As long as Jimmy plays a solid game, it should be another series victory for the Red Wings.

If I absolutely had to choose one, I guess I would choose the Sharks because my desire for revenge is just too strong. Also, Niemi is mediocre, and obviously goaltending is crucial in the post season.

So for me, as much as I respect what these other teams can do, I also know what we can do. And I'm very confident that the result of playing either of these two teams will be the Red Wings advancing to the WCF.

#2117593 2/17 GDT: Red Wings 6 at Lightning 2

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 17 February 2011 - 08:41 AM

Been obsessed with Steve Yzerman since I was 5 years old (back in 1989). So naturally Tampa Bay instantly became my second favorite NHL team once Stevie took over the reigns. And I've rooted for them all year. But tonight if a different story. GO RED WINGS BABY!!! TAKE IT TO 'EM!!!
