#2540431 10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by Dave on 13 October 2014 - 08:55 AM

Rooting against? No. Wanting to see our best players play every game they can? Yes. It isn't my fault that Holland signed a overrated always hurt player. The new trend here is Babcock is doing what he has been saying: The best play regardless of age/contract status/experience etc..... That is something everyone should be excited about!

 

He's only played 26 games as a Red Wing.....26. Again, he's only played 26 games as a Red Wing. I can't imagine why anyone has written him off after only ~32% of a single season. It's just utter nonsense.

I can't believe this thread is a fan of this guy

Hurr durr he's fat, what a piece of s***. 

The dude's teams were always president's trophy contenders. 




#2531037 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by Dave on 10 July 2014 - 02:33 PM

 

He was an AHL rookie, and there is absolutely no evidence that "he wanted to play now".  That's just something people keep saying.  He's far from the first Red Wings player to be expected to play a couple years in the AHL despite being older and having played professionally before. 

 

Also, you're just making things up.  He doesn't have "defensive inefficiencies".  He was lauded for his "Zetterberg-like" commitment to two-way play.

 

I'm so tired of people using post-hoc justifications to try and make that trade look like it wasn't a total disaster.  He wasn't going back to Europe.  He wasn't demanding immediate playing time.  He would surely have got a chance to be better than Andersson, Sheahan, Glendening, and/or Helm.  And he DEFINITELY isn't bad defensively. 

 

It was s*** trade.  That's all.

Is this done yet? Can we please move on? I kind of don't even like this website anymore because of this, Hossa, and Suter circle jerks that constantly get brought up in not some, but ALL of the posts on this site.

 

 




#2529147 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by Dave on 01 July 2014 - 08:44 PM

Ken Hollands actions lately prove to me that he is/was not the great NHL GM that everyone said he was. He must have been just the face in front of the real brains that have now all left. Nill, Bowman, and Yzerman. 

 

The Quincey signing will go down as one of his worst deals. Better to have done nothing then this. To be rejected by most UFA's is a big sign that the Wings are in big trouble. We are in for a long year(s) ahead

 

I don't think that's the case at all. I believe what we are witnessing is just how much of an impact player a prime Lidstrom was. We all knew he was good, amazing, one of the best ever. But, he seems to be what made the '00s Red Wings teams into contenders. Every D man that was his partner had career years. I daresay that, even with all the accolades, he may well have been underrated.

Speaking of Stuart, I wonder if he could be had for cheap, considering the Sharks are rebuilding.

 

Am I taking crazy pills? Does no one remember how terrible he was the last 1 and half seasons he was here? The dude mailed it in and was one of the worst defenders on the Wings roster. Why does everyone want him back?

Hardly. More like "slow news day".




#2522488 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Dave on 02 June 2014 - 09:27 AM

Why Not...

 

1. Trade Jurco, Andersson, 2014 1st Round Pick (#15) for Ryan Kesler

2. Trade Dekeyser, Tatar, Marchenko, and 2015 1st + 2016 Cond 2nd for Shea Weber

3. Sign Boyle

4. Re-Sign Alfie

 

ZETTERBERG - DATSYUK - ALFREDSSON

FRANZEN        - KESLER    - MANTHA

NYQUIST         - SHEAHAN - PULKINNEN

ABDELKADER - HELM        - MILLER

 

WEBER       - KRONWALL

ERICSSON - BOYLE

KINDL         - SMITH

 

HOWARD

 

Then lets flip Abs and Helm 1st+2nd+3rd+4th+5th+6th for Malkin and Letang

I don't think people understand how much offense will be gained with a better D corps.




#2519372 Was Legwand worth it?

Well, it looks like he won't be resigned.  I guess I question why Holland traded for him in the first place at this stage.  Yes, I know, to make the playoffs.  I still believe we should have given the kid a chance at the NHL level first.

 

He was signed because Joakim Andersson was the first line center. Seriously, reread that sentence and let it soak in. Andersson is a borderline NHL player and he was playing 1C. Even if the team was mathematically out of playoff contention that is still unacceptable. Something had to be done, so Holland pulled the trigger on Legwand.<-------------That is why Detroit traded for him.




#2519367 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by Dave on 06 May 2014 - 08:44 AM

 

Simple.... because you DON'T ever let a proven player like Hossa slip through your fingers EVER!!!! He is a career superstar! Franzen at the time looked like he could be but was still relatively unknown.... Worst Ken Holland mistake to date in my opinion.

 

Hurts even more because we know first hand that even when Hoss isn't scoring he is a wicked defensive player as well where Franzen is completely invisible and contributes nothing in his very loong down periods

 

None of this hasn't been said before. This is the same post over and over and over and over and over and over.....

The Bruins need the officials in order to beat us. Whatever.


Detroit had 3 power plays. They had their opportunities.
