#2532312 Ex-NHL Referee Paul Stewart Blog

Posted by VM1138 on 17 July 2014 - 06:21 AM

It's one thing to whine to the ref and another to whine publicly, I think. Yzerman never did the latter. I remember him talking to refs a lot but I don't remember him being whining, unless it was a rivalry game and passions were high. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

#2532140 Alfie wants to play

Posted by rick zombo on 15 July 2014 - 11:27 AM

Where is Alfie going to play? Top line?


Z - Pav - Alfie

Nyquist - Weiss - Franzen

Jurco - Sheahan - Tatar

Helm - Glendening - Abby




That doesn't look bad bad, but our D is atrocious...and our goaltending is average at best.


Someone should start a thread about this..............

#2532017 Red Wings new assistant coaches

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 14 July 2014 - 01:12 PM


out of curiosity, does anyone know what he did as assistant in pitt (powerplay, defense, etc)?? 




Looks like he was primarily involved with the Forwards and Penalty Kill Units.

Maybe this opens the door for Bylsma to come in as the second assistant.. that'd be interesting.

#2532100 Renney out, Granato in

Posted by rick zombo on 14 July 2014 - 11:21 PM

At least someone finally chose Detroit  :scared:




"It was an interesting process. I was surprised we could get him. He met with three other teams first. We let him do that. We were excited he chose to be a Red Wing. It worked out well."

I read in Malik's report that Pens fans are devastated that Granato is leaving for Detroit.  That makes me kind of happy.




#2531524 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by ShanahanMan on 11 July 2014 - 11:00 AM



according to his agent, he wanted a one year deal at 3 mill... the blues offered him two years at that or one year at 2.7 mill.


sounds pretty selfish to me

I read the first part and thought you were talking about Cleary and almost spit my coffee out. 

#2531422 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 10 July 2014 - 10:42 PM




Dan Cleary after a pillow fight. 


Also, here's what he said about the MASSIVE amount of fan/media criticism today, from MLive:


"Everybody is entitled to their opinion," Cleary said. "You try not to let any of the negativity – or the positive comments – affect you. We live in the day of social media; anyone can say anything. You can't worry about what people think. You got to do what you do."

And is he as great at basketball?

#2531013 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by kipwinger on 10 July 2014 - 11:38 AM

Thought this was funny.  Over on another forum, I just heard one fan say that "the Caps can't trade Green, they need him to replace Orpik when he inevitably breaks down".  Lol. 


If Mike Green being healthy is your team's back up plan you are in serious trouble. 

#2531009 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by kipwinger on 10 July 2014 - 11:16 AM


true. I just think it's more likely that the wings want to keep green, as opposed to not wanting to keep him, if we were to aquire him.. that's all I'm saying.


I don't think there was ever a thought of keeping legwand after this past season.. unless he really impressed.


I agree.  Problem is, if they don't really impress, or you don't keep them, then you're losing a big asset for nothing.  Conversely, if you lose a big asset, you've got more incentive to keep them regardless of how they play. 


For example:  Does anybody really think Holland would have been so quick to re-sign Quincey (twice) if he hadn't spent a first on him?  If it had been a third rounder Quincey would likely have left.  But if you spend a big asset you want to get some mileage out of the return, regardless of how good it's been. 

#2531090 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

As a moderator here, I'm just glad the Wings didn't announce the re-signing of Quincey and Cleary on the same day.

Posted by number9 on 09 July 2014 - 05:54 PM

I don't care what anyone says, that's a great signing. Like Dany Heatley or not, he is definitely worth the $1M gamble on a 1 year contract. Watch him be the steal of the offseason, putting up 50+ points on a line with Getzlaf and Perry. He may slot in on the second line with Kesler, but I think he would be great on the top line...

He's a freakin Allstar

#2530250 Please Help Me Win GDT of the year.

Posted by FlashyG on 06 July 2014 - 01:41 PM

Right now I'm currently locked in a very tight back and forth Battle with the Philadelphia Flyers in the semi-finals of the competition.


I need help getting votes to move on to meet the Sharks in the finals.


Not only is their GDT a wall of text they have been quite disrespectful towards my work. 


You need to have an HFboards account already to vote, but if you have one please follow the link cast your vote




Thanks for any help you can give me.

#2529896 Hockey News: Red Wings D hunting

Posted by Shaman on 03 July 2014 - 10:05 PM

Tyler Myers can go right out the window. They want a ridiculous amount for him (heard 4 starters and a high round pick) and honestly he's not that good. He's just tall.


Byfuglien is an interesting option. He fills a lot of holes on our backend (size, toughness, and a righty). Seems like a better trade partner than BUF who is in our division. 


Don't know much about Petry. 



I don't want to imagine Big Buff filling any holes on my backend.  Immature and sleep deprived is not a good combination.  



What? All I'm saying is that we have a lot of pressure back there sometimes and he can be the one to relieve it. Sure, there might be some boil-over from the other D-man he's playing with, but they just need to bear down, keep it loose, and be prepared to go long and deep.... into the post-season.
