#2637743 Wings Need on D and Glaring Inconsistencies

Posted by krsmith17 on 17 November 2015 - 10:36 PM

Here's our 5on5 CF% for the past 14 games. Things are obviously trending up. There's no question there was an adjustment period to get used to Blashill's system. Players are starting to figure it out and we're only going to continue to improve.

#2637261 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by rick zombo on 16 November 2015 - 12:12 AM

It's not a patch. It's the better part of decade of being irrelevant as a team.

I think Tampa probably thought this team was sort of relevant going into game 7 last year.

But I get it. The Wings aren't one of 3-4 teams dominating the NHL anymore.

Your mentality is infuriating though because the only way this team will ever get better is to really be bad for a while. Like Dallas or Chicago or Washington or everyone. But when they are bad you lose your s***? It's a f****** petulant joke.

Cherish this because it's most likely the only time I bother to explain myself to you with any effort.

I knew you weren't a real wings fan


And ovi is one if the best scorers in the history of the NHL, he's the most lethal one in this era. Im a red wings fan first, but you can bet your beehive I'm a hockey fan and I like to see greatness rewarded.

#2637270 If Larkin forces his way to the team , what will we look like?

Got my Larkin home jersey a few days ago.

Here's a pic from today's skating session. Same as my avatar now but this is more high resolution.

What about something like this? It would be something pretty different, but it would be a great way to incorporate the octopus.

First Miller (you're wrong) and now this (you're right). You enjoy putting a target on your back, Bill. Get ready to duck.


I agree with your assessment of Holland. His success is the product of the '89 draft, Andersson, Bowman, and Nill.

Nill passed on drafting Larkin and chose Julius Honka. Honka could be really good too, but so far Holland's winning vs. Nill in drafting since he left because of this decision. 


The argument that Holland's success was due to others is one that can't be proven or disproven. There's no way that you know what happened behind closed doors so making that statement is just based on biased rather than fact. Think what you want to think.

Z will end up scoring like 70+ points this year and his cap hit is only 6 million.

Holland did well with that one. Same with the Datsyuk and Franzen deals.
Althought Franzens deal would have looked great if he actually played

No. Nill negotiated the Z deal and Datsyuk made his own deal because he's magic. Holland is responsible for Franzen's deal because people hate that guy.

How was Franzen dreadful? He led our team in goals every year until his injuries. People on these boards spend more time talking about players then actually watching them. There's something wrong with people having their own personal investment in players struggles just for the sake of I told you so's.

Abby got a fair deal in today's NHL and the term just guarantees he retires a wing. They probably see him as a great leader and somebody they need around when Dats retires

Henrik Zetterberg is one goal shy of tying Ulf Dahlen (301) for sixth on the NHL's all-time list of Swedish-born goal scorers. (@Bill_Roose tweet)

#2636116 Devils Sign Tootoo

Posted by krsmith17 on 10 November 2015 - 06:46 AM

Frank, no one has any idea exactly what was said by Burrows. However, there is a line, even when trash talking, and for all we know, he very well could have crossed that line. If he was chirping anything to do with his brothers suicide, that is a line you just don't cross, and I hope Tootoo pounds Burrows face in next time they meet. There are some things you just don't bring up in trash talking, on or off the ice. I was never a fan of Tootoo in Nashville, prior to his short stint in Detroit, however the guy is a class act. Burrows on the other hand, is an a**hat. F*** Burrows...
