#2424005 Red Wings select RW Anthony Mantha 20th Overall

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 30 June 2013 - 04:23 PM

Such a great pick, especially considering we got another draft pick out of it. If this kid can put on 15-20 lbs of muscle WATCH OUT. Either way tho what a steal at 20!

#2419284 CHL moving to ban European goalies

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 11 June 2013 - 06:03 PM

So because European tenders are selected instead of Canadian ones they are making a rule basically forcing teams to pick Canadian ones even though they might not be as good or as qualified as the European tenders?  Smells like Affirmative Action and Diversity laws here in the states.  Two thumbs down CHL.



It's actually much worse than affirmative action cause at least that is put in place to help struggling people make money to help them live. This is a sport that is fully based on who is more skilled, and the most skilled get to play. This rule is disgusting and they should be ashamed of themselves. Beyond ridiculous

#2416622 Datsyuk: I want to sign extension with Wings this summer

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 31 May 2013 - 04:35 PM

Obviously this is beyond amazing news! Pavel is such a unique and special player. Can't wait to watch him hoist the cup a few more times before he hangs em up. One day #13 will be hanging in the rafters right next to #5 #19 #9 #12 #10 #7 #1

#2408906 Report: Roy Appointed Avalanche Coach

I really hope this happens so I can start hating on the Avs again. There was no other goalie in the league with less class than Patty Wahhh

#2404697 WCSF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 4, (CHI leads series 1-0)

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 15 May 2013 - 12:27 PM

It's nice going into a series with absolutely no pressure. Whereas playing the Ducks there was a lot of pressure considering how well we played them during the season. And heck, most of the experts picked Detroit in 6 against the Ducks as well. But this series almost everyone is picking Chicago (and truly I don't blame them). Especially with the way Crawford always plays against us. But at this point the only thing that could really bum me out is if we get swept. Otherwise no matter how this series goes us Wings fans have to be proud of what this team did, in spite of everything we went through this year.


And on top of it all, we still have quite a few million dollars to spend this offseason, so we're surely going to be even better next season! The future is extremely bright for the Wings. I definitely see our playoff streak continuing for many more years to come

#2404450 Why is Cleary still on the team?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 14 May 2013 - 02:58 PM





Cleary haters might get there wish if there's no room for him at the end of the season.... Very much depending on how much are young guys are worth of course

Got my fingers crossed, that's for sure. He's completely worthless these days. At least before he was a pretty speedy winger. Now he literally brings nothing to the table. He loses puck battles 99% of the time, isn't physical, rarely scores, yet he plays on our 2nd line while Jordan Tootoo is a healthy scratch??? Completely mind blowing logic right there. I pray we move on from him

#2385071 Bert thinks he'll be back this season

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 15 April 2013 - 12:49 PM

Wings desperately need Bert back in the lineup. Not only his chemistry with Pavel being so great,  but he's also become much better defensively in this later stage of his career, and he almost always nets one in shootout situations. If we're really gonna make a serious run here we def need Bert

#2361172 Wings sign (D) Brian Lashoff to 3-year, $2.175m extension

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 25 February 2013 - 03:10 PM

Nice! Brian has definitely earned this with his consistent solid defensive play. And I guess putting the puck in the net a few times doesn't hurt either. Now it's time to sign Brunner to a 5-6 year extension!!

#2359788 2/23 GDT : Nashville Predators 0 at Red Wings 4

I just hope we don't go up 2-0...

#2356696 Spammer runs wild, snuffed out by mod

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 17 February 2013 - 10:51 AM

Why would they not just ban the account for now then figure the rest out? The dude is STILL posting new threads right this very minute. Amazing how the mods will ban accounts (within minutes) over someone bringing up the detroit pistons, yet this guy posts spam for hours on end and not one mod banned the account... SMH

#2345963 PK Subban

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 24 January 2013 - 05:37 PM



subban isnt worth much more than 3.5mil a year. hes not even proven yet


Yeah, cause giving Ericsson 3.2 a year was DEF worth it... :rolleyes:

#2345882 PK Subban

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 24 January 2013 - 02:28 PM



Montreal's situation is looking more and more desperate. And all signs are now pointing to a Subban trade. Should Kenny be interested here?? Personally, I think it's something that should at least be explored. Especially since both teams are desperate in their own ways. So what do you guys think? And what would you be willing to give up for Subban?

#2315866 Semin

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 05 July 2012 - 03:43 PM

From the hockeyyInsiderr

Hockeyy Insiderr@HockeyyInsiderr
More on Semin: #RedWings also still very much in. Vision of Datsyuk having career changing influence on Alex. Expect them to up offer.
=> PIT offered 18 Mill / 4 yrs

HockeyyInsiderr is a complete and total fraud. He has absolutely zero sources other than s*** he makes up in his own head or things that were already reported on. No one give that douchebag the time of day.

As for Semin, I think it's a must that we sign him

#2305450 Wings interested in Garrison

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 05 June 2012 - 04:40 PM

This would be a really solid move for the Wings. Spent almost 2 months of the season down in Florida for work, so I caught quite a few panther games. And all I can say is I was really impressed with what I saw on a nightly basis. He has a pretty hard shot at the point, likes to get involved with the offense, yet seems to be defensively sound. Plus he's young, and presumably we can sign him for a reasonable price.

#2304941 Throw the bank at RFA Shea Weber?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 03 June 2012 - 10:51 AM

No, it works a bit different with RFA's. In both cases the teams are able to match the offer, but in the case of restricted agents... if the player signs with the team making the offer the current team gets draft pick compensation. The number and "level" of picks depends on the salary the player signs for. I'll find you a link for the draft compensation for RFA offer sheets.

Ahhhh I see. And yeah I knew either way the player's team can match all offers, actually what I meant to say was I thought the difference between RFA's and UFA's were if the player's current team matches any offers the player can't sign with any other team. But yeah I didn't realize we had to give up picks as well. Waiting till next season looks like the only true option now.
