#2372897 Guy Boucher fired

Wow! that would make the TBL the front runners for DeKeyser. 

No, it wouldn't. 




#2365900 Datsyuk - Cleary - Abdelkader

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 March 2013 - 11:06 PM

Babcock's decision to ice this line is the first decision of his that has made me angry. Every time I see the line hit the ice, the pure disgust I feel makes me want to turn the game off.

 

I am aware that Babcock likes this line because he feels it has defensive acumen, but it is also absolutely incapable of scoring.

 

Crymson, Babcock has won everything there is to win.  

 

How dare you criticize him?  Name me a guy who's more accomplished and could coach this team better?

#2363416 Babs on last night's D: "...best we've had all year."

The ironic thing is that people were saying this 3 years ago about Ericsson.


3 years ago? He was the whipping boy last year. Some people on here dont know what they are watching. Kindl hasnt been on the ice for a goal against in 6 games, but people say he's a terrible defender. Its insane.

One of the benefits of living on the West Coast ... I can still get a good night sleep after watching the Wings  ;)




#2362749 2/28 GDT : Red Wings 2 at San Jose Sharks 1 (SO)

Real good article just came out about Brad Stuart facing Detroit tonight and his return to home: http://www.mlive.com...seman_br_1.html

 

“My kids have gotten used to having me around, which they weren’t at one point, which is kind of sad, because I’d come in and they’d expect that you were going to leave,'' Stuart said. “Now they expect me to be home all of the time, which is great. They are at an age where they probably don’t even remember a lot of those times, which is good. Now it’s the way it should be. Being home as much as possible and not having to jump through hoops to see my family has been awesome.''

 

When Babcock saw Stuart's boys running around the dressing room in Phoenix last season, and then watched as they joined their dad on the ice after a practice in San Jose, he realized this move not only was inevitable but necessary.

 

Stuart said playing against his former teammates Thursday would be “weird,'' but added that it probably will be tougher when he returns to Detroit on April 11. He still keeps in touch with the likes of Niklas Kronwall, his former defense partner, as well as Henrik Zetterberg and Jonathan Ericsson, among others.

 

“The lockout sucked, but from a family perspective it was what I needed, given what I had gone through over the last 3-4 years,'' Stuart said. “Being able to be a dad, to take my kids to hockey and soccer, to be there every single time has been awesome.

“I probably couldn't have drew it up any better. I'm happy, my family's happy, and that's the most important thing to me.''




#2358601 Rumblings that 2014 Winter Classic will be Wings/Leafs

Posted by evilzyme on 21 February 2013 - 01:29 PM

Ever since the lockout I swear it was known that the Winter Classic was still going to be at the Big House, just the following year. I have zero idea why people act surprised or expected anything different. I hope they still do 24/7 though, unfortunately we don't have homer.




#2356469 Notes from Saturday's practice

Posted by rick zombo on 16 February 2013 - 07:38 PM

I didn't say that. Cleary sucks a$$. That being said, why can't Nyquist beat him out? Or eaves or Emmerton, or...... that is the point. Read what is written and stop ass-u-me-ing. I don't think Nyquist will ever be better than a 40 point guy in the NHL. That is my opinion. But I have also said several times, the only way to find out is for him to play in the NHL. Play him. Then he makes it or breaks it.


I think the idea isn't that Nyquist couldn't beat out those guys, rather that he is waiver exempt. Eaves or Cleary would have to be waived.

Having Nyquist as the swing man who can come up or be sent down as the team needs on a game-by-game basis is ultimately what this is all about. It gives the team depth. Or, at least it's supposed to.

Plus you have to consider roles. For example , Nyquist > Andersson and will be a more important player in the long run, but Andersson fits a niche right now, adding size to line 3.


#2355357 Babcock: Is he the right guy going forward?

Posted by matt198913 on 14 February 2013 - 01:18 AM

I didn't even read the argument in here. One of the most ridiculous questions I've ever heard.




#2355352 Babcock: Is he the right guy going forward?

Posted by Crymson on 14 February 2013 - 01:02 AM

Yes, he is the right guy moving forward. Case closed.




#2354474 Biggest mistake Red Wings have done

Posted by shoobiedoobin on 12 February 2013 - 06:28 PM

Our desire for new toys doesn't negate the fact that the loyalty we show is very appealing to players. We don't treat our players like video game characters or trading cards and that makes us look very good. We take care of our guys.




#2354303 Joakim Andersson Recalled

Posted by Crymson on 11 February 2013 - 07:52 PM

He's currently too slow to cut it in the NHL.




#2354269 Joakim Andersson Recalled

Posted by Motown4013 on 11 February 2013 - 03:58 PM

I may be in the minority here but I havent been all that impressed with Andersson. For having a big body, he doesnt use it alot. What does he bring to the tabe for this team? I know he is young but he certainly hasnt dazzled. I would prefer Eaves in the line-up




#2354150 Tomas Tatar Is Jiri Hudler 2.0

Posted by Euro_Twins on 11 February 2013 - 12:47 AM

The was one loaded statement. Yes they may be some of our better offensive prospects, but that speaks to our overall lack of top end talent. Nyquist and tatar are no where near as good at D, Z, and Fil. Never will be, but then again few were/are. But the problem is those 3 Dar and Z specificly are trending down and much closer to the end of their careers than the begining. The big problem is, we as of today have no replacements.

 

Z is trending downwards? Silly me, I thought he was 3rd in the league in scoring with 18 points in 12 games... or 1.5ppg. I must have mistaken him for someone else. I also thought dats was over a ppg with 13 points in 12 games, must be wrong there too...

tatar wins battles and is aggressive. hudler is lazy

He's not lazy
