#2509017 Sproul and Ouellet recalled from Grand Rapids

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 12 April 2014 - 07:50 PM

Kindl and Lashoff out, Ouellet and Sproul in would be the smartest decision they could possibly make going into playoffs. 

#2508640 Bobby Ryan to Ottawa

Posted by FlashyG on 11 April 2014 - 02:11 PM

I wouldn't have minded Ryan if it wouldn't have cost us Nyquist + to get him.


I think Nyquist is the better player straight up although that's debatable considering the lack of sample size and the likely unsustainable scoring rate for Gus.


Ottawa fans are already regretting the trade so maybe we were right to get out of the Ryan sweepstakes.

#2508654 Bobby Ryan to Ottawa

I said it before and i'll repeat it again, Ryan would be another Franzen on this team. He floats, plays like he doesn't care for half the season, and would turn into the whipping boy here rapidly because of how streaky he is. I believe 2 seasons ago he went 40 games without a goal, and had something awful like 6 assists in that span. He was kept out of the olympics for a reason, glad we passed and we didn't get another lazy, uninspired player here.

I like Glendening and Miller as much as the next guy, but they play too many minutes. We need goals, not cycles.

Shoot that Pavs... f***in Abby.

#2508725 4/11 GDT - Hurricanes 2 at Red Wings 1

Get Abby off the top line. Talk about offensively inept.
I sure hope that isn't our top line in the playoffs.

Pathetic. Nothing like anchoring your best player with a lazy winger on one side and no-skill winger on the other. Put Jurco back on the kid line instead of Gus or up with Pavel. Abby needs to skate around and hit people on the fourth line, not be asked to play a first line role. Just not a fit at all.

I'm not even going to pick my poison.  We're in and that's all that matters.  Hope the boys are ready to make some noise.

#2508414 4/9 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Pens 4 (SO). Wings clinch playoff spot!

Ugh while I've hated a long time on Jimmy's poke check Gus's does us in either way I think both struggle badly at this neals goal could have been stopped there are countless examples of Howard being very very embarrassed poke checking
A series against Boston would be epic with hank z at full strength and in the luneup

You either poke check or you don't. There's no magical poke check formula that only the elite are allowed to know. It was very bad luck, he poked the puck, then it jumped up over him and cruised perfectly back down into the net.

#2508358 Pens or Bruins

Posted by wings_fanatic on 09 April 2014 - 10:25 PM

I think we should not pick our own poison. As long as we play our best hockey we can realistically compete with both teams. We match up well against Boston and have done so for a few years. I know its only regular season I'm basing that off but still. The pens have weaker D and questionable goalie. But at the same time I think fleury is gonna play with something to prove in the playoffs I do not think he is gonna stink it up like everyone thinks. Also there is no denying the pens always benefit from the officials so we would end up short handed more against them and they have a lethal pp.

Bottom line, there are pros and cons of facing both teams but the bottom line is it won't matter who we play if we don't play well. If we play like we did tn, then we can compete with both teams and make it a series. Whoever we play, go wings!!

Someone has to step up, every Wing is just coasting. Getting no 2nd chance opportunities. If this gets to 2-0 Sabres...

#2507013 Lightning sign GM Yzerman to contract extension

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 April 2014 - 04:30 PM

After the Legwand deal Holland needs to be canned, but I guess the dream of Stevie coming to replace him is a pipe dream now.
FYI since joining the Wings
Legwand: .56 ppg
Jarnkrok .75 ppg

Ya a whole 8 games nhl experience. Watch out here comes the next yzerman
Also legwand has 17 games and 10 points. Well see how many points jarnkrok gets in a full season before we decide we lost the next gretzky

#2506228 Detroit says Weiss "Not Getting Better", likely done for year

Posted by Playmaker on 05 April 2014 - 05:25 PM

If a playeris injured, I don't think you can buy them out. I Bet he knows there is a good chance of them buying him out if he doesn't make an impact over the next few games, so he's sitting tight so he can have a full season to make an impression next year. The guy's a turkey, and I think he's on drugs.

I don't think he's the one on drugs.

I'm with you, I hate the whole thing with wild cards switching divisions. Why complicate the situation?


And what's worse, is that half the fans don't even get it. Until I actually sat down and literally THOUGHT about how the hell it worked, I hadn't got a clue. It's mental

#2504247 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by marcaractac on 31 March 2014 - 08:55 PM

LEafs fans deserve every bit of this. Sure there are a few good Leafs fans I feel sorry for. But their general fan base? This looks good on them.
