#2606075 Jim Devellano on Mantha's play: "Very disappointing"

Posted by VM1138 on 05 May 2015 - 07:37 AM

Jimmy D needs to be put out to pasture.  Mantha had a rough year but from reading about his play (haven't seen him play yet) he's not playing badly.  He's just sort of average.  That tends to happen with prospects one of their years.  Very unusual for a prospect to be called out after one year.

The only criteria for getting your jersey retired is because the owner says it should be retired.  I don't know where fans get the idea that there's some sort of standard or litmus test that has to be passed.  If Mike (or Chris or Marian or whoever is making the decisions these days) says someone's number will be retired, it will be retired.  The Wings and their fans are fortunate to have so many players in recent years to have this discussion about.

#2550332 Myers close to become a wing?

Posted by DickieDunn on 20 November 2014 - 07:25 PM

He's not untouchable but if he gets traded it needs to be for a sure thing, not Myers.

#2549122 General discussion for tonight's games

Posted by number9 on 15 November 2014 - 02:21 PM

Harold asked for an answer and I replied to him.
Don't like my answer, don't read it it's very simple. Please leave it up to myself (I can think alone thanks), to judge whats problematic and what not...just a hint a lot of stuff post 2005 is problematic in the NHL.

Don't like someone's response to your answer Frank? DONT READ IT.

Hopefully that points out how backwards your don't like it don't read it stance is.

#2534812 Datsyuk or Fedorov?

Posted by DeGraa55 on 22 August 2014 - 11:34 PM

Datsyuk much more complete player to me. Although I can not imagine the number Federov would have put up now.

Datsyuk who doesn't score many goals is more complete? I personally don't think so but to each their own...

#2532990 Hockey News: The 5 most evil hockey photoshops we could come up with

Posted by Jersey Wing on 25 July 2014 - 08:51 AM

Think long and hard Wings fans, they are one of the five. What would be the most evil thing to befall the Wings (in an on the ice kind of way)?

Babs also said the Wings didn't hand out any bad contracts in free agency. Out on the lake when the Quincey deal happened?

Quincey isn't a bad contract, it's only for 2 years. Niskanen and Orpik, are bad contracts.

#2530873 Kane & Toews Sign Identical 8-year, $10.5M AAV Extensions

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 July 2014 - 03:52 PM

Not sure if you knew this or not, but this is being discussed in the "Off season trades and signings" thread already. Not sure it needed its own thread, but the detailed info you added was a great read! Thanks! Please take no offense.

#2530824 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by Son of a Wing on 09 July 2014 - 01:19 PM





Agreed. Real Wings fans would gladly give up "the streak" to be actual contenders in a couple years.


I love when people start differentiating between us real and us fake fans...  I'd never be able to tell us apart....

#2530449 What's best for Mantha?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 07 July 2014 - 03:20 PM

Just because I take hard line stances, doesn't mean I am combative with people...anyhow, I love when people disagree with me, but not when they just go "you're stupid" or "you don't know anything about hockey"


anyhow, I've been here for a VERY long time and contribute a TON of stuff, so I am not worried about someone disagreeing with me. If everyone agreed with each other this would be a pretty boring forum.


Here is your link on Stralman saying no to Detroit:




I'm not questioning your status/role on this site.  Many of us have been here just as long... That doesn't make our opinion any more or less valid. We're still just one voice.


My point was that you can't really be THAT surprised that people take issue/offense to some of the things you say.  Especially when you are so confident in your stance despite the fact that it can be quite outlandish to many.



Anyways....I think Mantha would benefit most with some minor-league seasoning. Same with AA. Between those two and Pulkkinen we've got a nice diverse trio of forwards to choose from.

#2529494 Wings sign Kevin Porter to 1-year, 2-way contract

Posted by Echolalia on 02 July 2014 - 01:24 PM

Lol Ya god forbid we lose... What's his name again? I'm sure every gm was banging on his door....

The star level of a player shouldn't matter. You want someone, you sign him. Not wait around so the fans don't get their feelings hurt.

#2526163 Kesler traded to Anaheim

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 27 June 2014 - 02:21 PM

Oddly enough I read an article not too long ago that stated Anaheim is one of the worst places to live. I don't remember why though, probably because all they have going for them is Disney.  This is, of course, me talking about a place I don't live based on an article I read so take that for what you will.  I have been there though, to Disney.

I guess if you hate really nice neighborhoods, schools, awesome beaches, and yearly 70 degree temperatures then yea it would suck to live in Anaheim.

#2524514 Detroit re-signs Gustavsson 1 yr $1.85 mill

Posted by number9 on 19 June 2014 - 03:21 AM


Were there not at least one or two games where Gustavsson gave us more than a chance to win in the shootout. I'm thinking specifically of a game against Tampa when he stopped 6 out of 7 or 7 out of 8, but our forwards couldn't score a single goal (http://scores.espn.g...ameId=400484719).


I think certain people are also forgetting how he played in the playoffs when he was called on at the last minute - he played well enough that you weren't worried when he was put back in the next game. Other back-ups buckled in the same scenario (Tampa, Montreal, before they called up Tokarski).


Gus was a great back up this year. anyone who says otherwise is leftwinger
