It's damn good to be a Wings fan!  Just look at some of the names in this thread, wow.

#2664720 Forward Line Combos/Discussion

Posted by redwingmachine on 06 April 2016 - 10:38 AM

It must be an analytic / match up thing against Philly's 4th line....  It definitely  seems like an odd move, I for one have liked what I've seen from Mantha so far.  I agree Jurco should be in the lineup but not so sure it's should be at Mantha's expense.  We've won our last 2 (w/Mantha in), why shake things up?

I'm partially serious with my other post, I really have high hopes this year.  I like our team and expect good things this season.  I think the most improved will be Smith, Jurco & Pulk (perhaps Kindl)

Finish top 1-2 in the EC, deep run, possible cup, Blash wins the Adams and order is restored to the NHL with the Wings on top again.

Who's been to the UC to see a Wings/Hawks game? 



I have, Hawks fans suck!  They are belligerent, loud, and obnoxious.  The bright side is there are usually plenty of Wings fans there to high five!

6 browser tabs should do the trick.

If we hear a TOD-BER-TUZZI chant tonight, then it was the right decision.

I love how after the hit Pavs then blocks his leg from coming up.

You are a space monkey, ready to be shot into space… a sacrifice for the greater good!


I salute you sir!  :punk:

#2368410 Why shootouts may be a bad thing

Posted by redwingmachine on 13 March 2013 - 01:19 PM

What if they added a defenseman to the mix on a shootout?  For example, the D-man stands on the opposite blue line and can’t chase until the puck is touched at center. This would add a level of back pressure and Kane would get crushed trying to pull that slow-mo BS he does.  Just my $0.02.

#2367930 Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

Posted by redwingmachine on 12 March 2013 - 10:13 AM

This doesn’t make any sense.  So, Babs won’t break up the abysmal 2nd line to not mess with the chemistry of the 3rd line and yet sends the best guy on the 3rd line down for an unknown.  Awesome! 

Nyquist better end up with Dats or somewhere in the top six.

Can't wait to get a look at this kid.  Also, can't wait to hear the proper annunciation of his name.

#2336935 NHL submits offer to NHLPA - **Suspension Warning Post #70 & #273*

Posted by redwingmachine on 28 December 2012 - 02:49 PM

If the cap were to end up at 60M for 12-13, that would put 16 teams in the need of some overhauls, including the Wings by about 1.5M.


I think this should solve that problem (if i understand it correctly):

"- Each Club will be entitled to execute up to one "Compliance Buy-Out" prior to the 2013/14 season pursuant to which payments made to the Player will not be charged against the team's Cap, but will be charged against the Players' Share."
