#2685083 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

Posted by F.Michael on Yesterday, 10:23 PM

Nice goal....wish he would've had that effort last year. Thanks holland for not keeping him happy.

Lets be honest here...I honestly doubt Holland could've done anything to keep, or make Dats 'happy' while in Detroit.


IMHO - he's looked burned out these past few seasons, and now with a wonderful opportunity to play in front of his countrymen - I wouldn't be too surprised to see Dats have a solid season in the KHL.

those are Mine-Mines from Finding Nemo.  I call all seagulls mine-mines and all pelicans are Nigel, to me.  LOL

That makes so much sense, I'm gonna start calling them mine-mines as well. ;)

I still hate Sansa for getting Ned Stark killed by ratting him out to Cersei. 


And because she got most of the wildlings killed by not telling Jon about Littlefinger's army. Could have avoided all those people from dying. And also the giant Wun Wun coulda lived. 


Why the giant?





#2684676 Patrick Roy steps down as Head Coach and VP of Hockey Operations

Sakic, overrated? Seriously? Why do fans that hate opposing teams have to hate every player on those teams? The Wings Avalanche rivalry is long over. Not a single player involved remains on either team. Why do people still hate them so much? I guess for the same reason they still hate the Penguins and Crosby... or should I say "Criesby".....

Burnaby Joe was a beast in his day and to say otherwise is flat out wrong...

#2684278 Red Wings All-Bust Roster

Posted by kickazz on 31 July 2016 - 02:58 PM

Whoever thinks Cleary was a bust probably has zero clue what "bust" means. And is likely equating typical "I hate Dan Cleary" narrative with the concept of being a "bust".


Aside from winning a Stanley cup with us he also scored the OT game winner against Anaheim in 2009. Not to mention he had two 20 goal seasons, a 26 goal season and scored more points than Datsyuk did in the playoffs at least 3 different times. Also scored more goals than Zetterberg did in 2011. So it's not even "efforts". He actually produced better than our star players did at times. And not just one time. Multiple times. 


His last playoffs with the Red Wings was in 2012-2013 where he scored 4 goals and 10 points whereas Dats scored 3 goals 9 points. Both played exactly 14 games.


So lol. 


Can't believe I just had to defend Dan Cleary. He might have been a washed up player for the last 3 or 4 years who no longer belonged in the line up, but the guy was no bust. He made a career here when the Red Wings gave him a chance. And he won a Stanley cup in the process. 


Not many people in the league can say that about themselves. And not many teams can say that about other players they give opportunities to. Usually when a team gives a chance to a player whose career is falling apart or declining, they end up being a bust. Not Dan Cleary though. That guy ended up winning a Stanley cup, recovering his falling career and went onto play 10 more seasons with a successful franchise.

I haven't been in the offseason topic for awhile, apologizes. Fighting in hockey is just not needed anymore.


...but it has to be consensual

did anyone see the two KHL coaches fight?

#2684319 Fox Sports DET to stream DRW games online

Posted by F.Michael on 01 August 2016 - 07:53 PM



The way I read this.. if you have a cable/satellite package that includes regional sports channels, you'll be able to stream NHL games. 


Therefore, if you have a Directv package with FSD, you shouldn't have to buy NHL Center Ice.. correct?



From what I got - it only works for those in Michigan.


I have DirecTV with the regional sports package, and every Wings game on FSD is blacked out - therefore I get Center Ice.

Mommy and baby are both doing well!



#2683330 Wings file for abitration with Peter Mrazek

Posted by TheXym on 17 July 2016 - 06:29 AM

As mentioned earlier, historically with the Wings, the arbitration was to prevent tendering of an offer sheet. Personally, I think DDK signs before, and if Kenny wants to gamble for a short term bridge deal it goes to arbitration. I think Mrazek has said he wants either two or four years previously.n I wouldn't be surprised if he got it done before the hearing as well.

Curtis Joseph


What are you takling about? In his two years here during the playoffs he had a GAA of 1.75 and a save % of .928. Top multi year playoff numbers for any Wings goalie since his time here. Not to mention he handled the Hasek s***show of 03 pretty darn well.

Now how about Cleary......


I'd like to see him back in GR tbh. I think he'd make a great leader with that squad.

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 20 July 2016 - 04:29 PM

TBH, I wouldn't have minded seeing him back. I know I'm in the extreme minority when it comes to that. 


Congrats on a great career.
