#2630957 Roster Moves by the Wings

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 15 October 2015 - 12:11 PM

We don't need experience on the blue line.  We've got a veteran blue line.  Kronwall, Ericsson, Quincey, Green, are all veterans.  Kronwall has as many Cups as Chara, so it's not even like he brings that to the table. 
And did I mention he's slower than glass? 

Plus, he's more fragile than molasses.

What would it take to get Chara?  


Poor judgement?

Things are gonna be different this time around. I'm gonna stay positive!

#2588755 4/2 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2

So last year when Zetterberg put the team on his severely injured back and willed them into the playoffs, that was proving his lack of leadership and skill?  


Good story.  Too bad it isn't even remotely true.  Zetterberg didn't "put this team on his back and will them into the playoffs last year.  He didn't play a single game between February 8th and our first round playoff series on April 24th. 


Nyquist put the team on his back a year ago, scoring 13 goals and 8 assists in March and April.  Not Zetterberg, who only played 45 games last year, none of which were in the second half of the season when we were fighting to make the playoffs.


Nevertheless, I agree with your larger point.  Which is that there's nothing wrong with the team leadership.

Put Abby or Cole with Datsyuk and Tatar. No need of Zetterberg having both of the teams only two top 6 wingers with size.

Abdlekader - Dastyuk - Tatar
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Cole
Weiss - Sheahan - Pulkinennen
Miller - Glendenning - Jurco

What's so hard about that?

Pulkkinen is at that spot where he's too good for the ahl and not quite ready to face the nhls top competition, like he would be in the top six role he's projected for.

I think next season we should start with three scoring lines and pulk will be on the third line. That seems ideal at this point, imo.

and the sad thing is when Jimmy takes over again the goals against will go down but the goals for will too and he will get crucified like theres no tomorrow even though Mrazek has not been great in every one of these games his 5-0-0


Ok do we not realize that Mrazek's a rookie that's not even suppose to be playing in the NHL right now????  I think he's done pretty damn good job, especially since we have our #1 and #2 out and we're #1 in the Atlantic division.

Babs is sucking the life out of these games trying to win 2-1 every night. The best stretch of hockey the Wings played this season was when they scored goals in bunches and played more wide open. The forwards are the strength of the team. I get trying to gut out wins a year ago, but it isn't necessary nor advantageous with the personnel anymore.

That's a pretty soft call on Ericsson too.

wow...such a boring game.


Refs apparently think so too so they're getting involved.  Every penalty this game has been pretty weak.

Ah well. The Wings win this game 9 times out of 10 and Reimer is a fluke

#2550705 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

The little girl who reports on the Griffins.  Her favorite player is Nestrasil and she unabashedly has a crush on him (for some reason).  Look up "Off the Pipes with Piper" on youtube.  It's adorable. 

Piper is a national treasure

Last year: "Holland's an idiot! Best players should play regardless of waiver exemptions!"


This Year: "Holland's an idiot! We lost someone for nothing on waivers!"


Damned if you do and damned if you don't.
