#2532754 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

Posted by Seraph on 21 July 2014 - 10:42 PM

I've noticed it's the people in the suburbs who are usually pessimistic about downtown. I've been living here the past two years and it has been a blast. No one here is "waiting for a revival." It's already pretty awesome. I have no doubt these plans will make it better.


Here is the view from my apartment and you can see the lots along Woodward where the stadium will stand. You can see the FOX theater sign for a point of reference. I'll post more pictures once they start construction.

Yea they won't let a former first round pick just go away for nothing. Especially not after the Quincey debacle. I could see them trading him away for maybe like a 5th or 6th rounder, but they wouldn't just let him go like that. 


Why would any GM give up anything for Kindl and his contract when a guy like Del Zotto is available for free and on a lesser contract.

Bickell can go fly a kite....but Seabrook would be nice for the right deal.

Good news for Cleary's knees, and thus, the core of our team 

#2531964 Holland Wiki page edited

I just thought of something.  The reason Ken Holland wants all his players to be overripe and 1000% NHL ready is because in his 1st NHL game he got lit up for 7 goals.  It all makes sense now.

Whoever did that to the Wiki page is hilarious.  Holland has become a villain and the write up is well deserved.

We're not getting anyone.


Getting Weiss back from injury will be our big free agent signing.

How is Zetterberg not a superstar? Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

We don't have superstars, though. I mean, aside from Datsyuk.

Zetterbergs beard alone is a superstar which in turn makes him a superstar

#2530500 Marchenko

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 July 2014 - 08:57 PM

I'm hoping this positive experience with Marchenko will warm the Wings to taking more Russian born players. I think we have passed on some real talent in the past due to the russian factor.

Which sucks considering some of my favorite players were Russians. Attitude or not, they got s*** done!

Posted by LidstromIsASuperhero on 06 July 2014 - 11:56 PM

Man, when I saw the thread title I thought it was going to actually look like pac man, with face of the cage being the mouth. I think that would've been way more badass, like he's boasting he just gobbles up every puck that comes at him.

Aaron Ward ‏@aaronward_nhl  7m

David Legwand comes to terms with the Ottawa Senators on a 2 year deal, 6M total #TSN

So we officially spent a 2nd rounder and Jarnkrok on a rental...good work Kenny!

#2529769 Hollands new contract a no brainer?

Posted by LAWings on 03 July 2014 - 01:33 PM

We blew it with Yzerman, turns out he's becoming a pretty good GM.  Look at the wheeling and dealing he's done this past week, very impressive.  Although I think the St Louis fiasco could have been avoided, he managed to get a good deal out of it.  I doubt he will come back to Detroit with the 4 year contract he has with Tampa. 


Jim Nill in 2 seasons has turned Dallas around.


Meanwhile, Babs and Kenny are still looking for that mythical free agent tree, unable to make a trade while droning on about how these are different times as every serious cup contender made some kind of move to better their team.  Any wonder no one wants to come to Detroit?
