#2471385 It's time - to predict 2014 Team USA

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 08 January 2014 - 04:40 PM

Paul Martin and Brooks Orpik over Keith Yandle and Dustin Byfuglien??? Sorry but that's absolutely ridiculous.

Go USA and Go Sweden!!!

#2470569 1/4 GDT : Red Wings 5 @ Stars 1

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 04 January 2014 - 03:09 PM

I'd be fine with switching Bert and Tatar.



Exactly. Or I'd even take switching Tatar and Abby. So sick of undeserving players getting on the top lines while Tatar remains in the bottom 6.

#2465363 Wings call up Sheahan

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 16 December 2013 - 08:11 PM

Oh Sheahan called up? Better put him on the 1st line while keeping one of our best players (Tatar) in the bottom 6...smh

Time to show these kitty cats whos boss.

No offense man, but you should really leave the GDTs to the members who actually use graphics n such. No biggie, just a suggestion. GO RED WINGS!!!! PAVEL FOR THE HAT TRICK!!!

#2462096 Shawn Thornton attacks Orpik (leaves game on stretcher)

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 07 December 2013 - 08:52 PM

I hate the Pens as much as the next Wings fan, but what Thornton did was uncalled for and def not part of the hockey 'code.' Seems almost certain that he will be suspended. Hopefully Orpik is okay.


#2461772 12/6 GDT 7:00PM: Red Wings 3 at Devils 1

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 06 December 2013 - 09:52 PM

All I know is Tatar better be on one of the top 2 lines from now on (even when Pav and Hank return). He continues to prove game after game that he can be a difference maker and a game changer. Time for Abby to head back to the 3rd line where he belongs.

#2456110 11/21 GDT: Hurricanes 3 at Red Wings 4

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 21 November 2013 - 07:16 PM

Lineups tonight per Khan:



Jimmy Howard


I'm happy Nyquist is finally in there, but Cleary on the 1st line??? Come on Babs...smh

#2453702 Cleary in, Tatar out against Caps

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 14 November 2013 - 04:04 PM

Totally disappointed by this... Tatar needs to be in the lineup every night (same goes for Nyquist). Still just can't fathom why we would possibly re-sign Cleary (especially with all our roster/cap issues). Ridiculous...

#2452746 Franzen is back, Cleary to be scratched

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 11 November 2013 - 02:07 PM



I'm actually shocked that Babcock is finally holding Cleary accountable for his total lack of contributions so far this season. Maybe Kenny is starting to realize that signing Cleary when we already had too many forwards was probably not the smartest move (and I love Kenny). Not to mention it forcing us to send Nyquist down to GR, when obviously he should be a permanent regular with the big club.

#2447098 The DeKeyser Appreciation Thread

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 22 October 2013 - 04:36 PM

DeKeyser continues to prove game after game that he's the real deal. And the great thing is he's likely not even close to reaching his full max potential yet.

#2445728 stephen weiss

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 17 October 2013 - 11:37 PM

I'm not worried at all. I worked down in Florida for almost a year and caught a ton of Panthers games (unfortunately lol) and Weiss is def the real deal. The Wings play a completely diff system, so it will for sure take a lot more than 7 games to adjust. And in the meantime he's had some beautiful passes and already put the puck in the net a few times (with one being an OT game-winner). He'll get better and better each game he plays in this system.

#2440622 Oilers Name Six Alternate Captains

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 02 October 2013 - 04:31 PM

Ridiculous... There should be some kind of limit set by the NHL. I mean come on, a captain and 6 alternates? That's MORE than one full lines worth of hockey players. The Oilers are making some head scratching decisions. First they appoint Ference captain (before he had even played one game for them) over Smyth and other deserving players. And now this? Oilers are really starting to get annoying.

#2439580 Red Wings impact on fantasy hockey

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 28 September 2013 - 04:47 PM

There's a big difference between targeting players, and actually drafting players. Odds are most will be drafted in between your picks. For example, instead of just targeting Alfie, I targeted Weiss as well, that way if one gets drafted I can snag the other, or vise versa. Obviously you don't want them all on the same team from the same draft lol
