#2576991 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by GoWings1905 on 01 March 2015 - 09:29 PM

 

He likes our team.

 

He isn't alone. There isn't a whole lot not to like about these guys through 60 games.

Hope he sounds more excited when we interview him  :confused:

I'm sure he's kind of bewildered in a way and once it sets in he'll feel fantastic he was traded to the greatest sports organization in the world  :w00t:

Abby + Franzen = Cole.

 

I think our top 6 just got way more dangerous and less one-dimensional.

 

Tatar - Datsyuk - Cole

Nyquist - Zetters - Abby

 

If Franzan can come back we'll be lookin even betta

Jesus Christ. 

 

I have my head up the azz of hockeysfuture.com as much as the next Red Wings fan, and I love my prospects, but this deal was a home run. Wtf are people complaining about?

So do some of you guys even want to win or what? Kenny gave up 2 prospects who likely were never going to see time in the winged wheel. Cole is 36, have you seen him play? He's not Bertuzzi. He can still skate as well as he ever did, and plays a physical power game.

Some people are impossible to please, you think each and every prospect is going to be future top-6, wrong. We just got bigger, try and appreciate that.

#2576364 Once again blowing a lead and giving up 3 goals

Posted by rick zombo on 28 February 2015 - 07:12 PM

Really what is going on with this team? Today another episode of giving up 3 goals after a lead. it makes me pull my hair out. The old wings  knew how to shut it down with a lead, these guys look like they quit playing after they get the lead and then have to pull a win out of their a**. Anyone else frustrated seeing this trend lately?

 

what can be done to fix this? Who is to blame? Where are my meds? Sick of seeing it.

 

/rant

 

Two things:

 

1. Half the league is good now. Games are closer. Teams are more even. 

2. We lead the league in come backs when trailing after two periods and are 2nd only to Anaheim in wins when trailing IN the 3rd. Why must you be glass half empty?  :lol:




#2575067 2/26 GDT : Red Wings 3 at San Jose Sharks 2

I'm a fan of the GDT. Need a W tonight for this ridiculous road trip to be considered reasonably successful.

 

We've got 5 out of 8 points so far, that's pretty good.

 

How long have the Sharks been in the league? And their shark on the logo is STILL working that first stick. It's like he's not even trying.

 

They recently changed jerseys...

#2572779 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by frankgrimes on 21 February 2015 - 10:40 AM

Everyone.
Not just Toronto has to be politically correct.

And he's a sports figure.
I would hope they made him apologize.
People need to start thinking about what they say before they say it.

If I had a little girl who was into hockey and one of her sports icons said this, I would be pissed that she's being belittled and talked down to by some random dou***bag.

 

Why should "everyone" just because some people who are offended by almost everything want to impose some dictationship like rules ? I'm not getting into politics here because I hate them and this is a sports forum...but I guess some people would be surprised by the amount ot trash talking that's happens during games.

 

Guess what be pissed about and tell your little girl to find another icon if it's such a big deal for you as a dad I mean there are 700 NHL players can't be that hard. People these days want all the information but some for sure can't handle it it seems.

 

It's exactly stuff like this why Toronto is having such a hardtime attracting free agents (despite some other shortcoming of course) but seriously they're making a big deal out of pretty much every non hockey related stuff i.e Bernier not knowing who Mandela is, Phaneuf not wearing an "official Leafs cap post game" and now this...I'm sure the players are frustrated enough already cut them some slack and let them focus on what's really important ...their job: hockey.

 


He had to apologize because the feminists in Toronto were not happy with his remarks. They had a couple groups on radio stations in Toronto complaining about it. Had nothing to do with the Hockey media.

 

I'd say let them complain then if they have nothing better to do it's their life if they want to waste it on such useless stuff go ahead :)

That's what happens when your GM makes a blockbuster trade.


You go 1-1 and win in a shootout?


#2570378 2/11 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Penguins 4

Posted by e_prime on 13 February 2015 - 10:25 AM

Laughable.  Seriously.  Does Toronto think they've got any leverage in this situation?

Toronto wants to deal him.  Get something for a guy that isn't going to re-sign with them.

Teams know that Toronto wants to deal him because they can't really afford to sign the guy to the contract he wants.

 

So, why anyone would give the Leafs what they want? 

A 1st round pick {PLUS} for a guy who in all likelihood could end up just being a rental?

A week ago, word on the street was a second rounder could get you Franson.  Now it's a 1st++. 

Talk about lessons in negotiations.  You start high and go from there... not the other way around.

I've never seen a place where the by far best player is getting so much flak. But sure go ahead trade your best player and then complain about not having a finisher Clarkson, Lupul aren't movable but Phaneuf is not that bad if the Leafs retain some salary the offers will come flying .
