#2571689 2/18 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blackhawks 2 (SO. Yes, SO!).

Posted by Supertack on 18 February 2015 - 11:43 AM

A wings vs hawks cup final would be incredible.


Absolutely agree. From this Hawk fans perspective it would far and away be the best Cup of any Eastern team. That series would be epic, and it has a legit chance of happening this year....

Here's Wisniewski's actual quote regarding the Wings...


"For me, knowing Detroit's history they don't really pay the market value for a defenseman or any player,'' Wisniewski said on NHL Live. "So I didn't think that was going to be a fit for myself."



So, two points about that.  A) It's true, B) He's not exactly trashing them.  It's a pretty straightforward way for a guy to explain why he's not interested in a place.  He could have been like all these other pro-athletes (Max Scherzer) who insist it's not about the money, and that they're happy where they are, and then leave for more money. 


Whether you want Wisniewski or not, and I can legitimately see why some wouldn't (even though I do), I doubt there's much "bad blood" over these comments. 


Edit:  Red Wings reportedly scouting the Blue Jackets - Flyers game, and the Stars - Blues.  A few weeks ago I talked about some "sleeper" options for the Wings to upgrade their defense.  Wiz, Savard, and Dallas' Klingberg were on that list.  During that time Savard and Klingberg have really produced well.  Hopefully, I'll get lucky and we'll acquire one of these guys.  Partly because I want a better blueline, and partly because I want to lord it over all you suckers.  

#2571524 Time for Teemu?

Jurco may need to go back down, honestly.
Let him get some confidence, come back up and be a scoring line winger

No, I'm not against Yandle as a player at all... Point out one time when I said I don't like Yandle as a player... I've never said it


I win!

I really think Kenny will do something out the ordinary this year


We say that every year.

Saw the game online athanasiou was really impressive and mantha showed some flashes of brilliance and I got no doubt those 2 will be in our lineup in 2-3 seasons

As for pulkkinen I'd personally make room for him right now and give him the rest of the season and give him time to get going for the playoffs , where else we gonna trade for a guy with Pulkkinen's shot?

We need every valuable asset right now to help us win while pavel and hank are with us and I think with Pulkkinen's shot and maybe on a 3rd line playing against other teams bottom 6 in the playoffs could really provide us with a few valuable goals

#2570519 Good to see they're getting along

It doesn't matter to me either way if Fedorov has his number retired.  If he does, good for him, if not, it doesn't bother me.  There isn't a timetable on it either.  I think Lindsay and Delvecchio didn't have their numbers retired until the 1990's. 


I guess if I had a criteria, it would be, if you have to ask and you have to debate it, then it's no.  With Yzerman and Lidstrom, it wasn't if, it was when.  I know other teams have things like a ring of honor or something similar. That might be something for the new arena,  a way to honor the very talented, but not quite legendary Red Wings.

#2570456 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

I'm not a big Maple Leafs fan by any means, but as a Lions fan, I can relate to misery. Thank god I also have the Red Wings and the Tigers.

Only chance he had is if he continued to play here and retired as a Red Wing. But it would still be doubtful.


You had to be "that guy" :lol:


I agree.  I prefer to see career Wings to the extent possible.  With Sergei it's about him leaving, but more importantly about WHEN he left.  I wouldn't really care if he had a long career in Detroit and then finished out in Russia, or if he bled Red and White and then left at the end for one final shot at the Cup.  But he left in his prime.  That's a no-go for me if you want to be immortalized at the Joe. 

#2570398 What should we do with the Monster?

Posted by e_prime on 13 February 2015 - 02:16 PM

Apparently they're unsure what to do with our goalie situation so the wings will carry three goalies for now....




PHT: http://prohockeytalk...-backup-goalie/

Is Danny Cleary still on the roster?  Can't we waive him already so we can carry these three goalies, plus 8 defensemen... please?  LOL.

#2570357 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by LeftWinger on 12 February 2015 - 09:57 PM

I'd actually like to see if indeed Buffalo is throwing in the towel, how much it would take to get Bogo here.  Maybe a couple of picks and a prospect?

And it's official, Malik had his freak out lol.  In its entirety...


"Excuse me, Bryan has been a trusted source for some time now, and as I was in the middle of work, Winging It asked McKenzie and got the answer before I could…


I’m sorry for “reporting” something that was incorrect, but please note that the headline, REPORT, is journalistic slang for, “THIS IS A REPORT, NOT NECESSARILY GOSPEL TRUTH.”


I’ve made my apology, Bryan has made a Twitter apology, the situation has been rectified. I’m not Brian *#$%@& Williams, and if you don’t like the way I operate, go read another blog.


Rule NUMBER ONE of my job is to not make s*** up—and I didn’t make this up—and rule NUMBER TWO is to cite my sources, which I did. I cited a false report, assuming that the veracity of the report was sound, that was not the case, and I’ve attempted to make amends. If that makes me a fraud in your eyes, you’re barking up a tree with a bear in it."


I'm especially fond of the part where he likens himself to a bear.  What a ******.

I'd like to see the denial... otherwise, I'm going to go with the word of the three idiots.  :lol:


Haha, I just signed up for an account over there so that I could troll Malik via my online alter-alter-ego...TheGlistening.  It should be good for a laugh once he sees it. 


On the record:  I can't stand George Malik.

Yeah I'm really trying to figure out what the hell they're thinking with this and the other trade.
