And to think at the end of last season I was afraid I'd never find a reason to reuse this pun:

Good one on Fedorov too




Fave quote



The Red Wings' defensive core was riddled with injuries one season, so Bowman decided to put Fedorov back on defense.


"He was the best defenseman in the league for a six-week period," Bowman said.

#2635210 New arena construction updates

Posted by SetecX on 04 November 2015 - 05:09 PM

This arena is going to be amazing. Awesome to see they are upping the ante to make it even sweeter. The suspended seating/walkway bit from the ceiling is cool. They have that at MSG. Anyways, I plan on going to the site this weekend to fly over it and will update the blog when I do.

Its a valid post. Shouldnt we expect Howard to outllay Mrazek?

I'm not qualified to determine which one would "outlay" the other, and I certainly don't want to watch. This is a family forum. ;)

In all seriousness, the RFA vs UFA thing is a HUGE salary difference in any case.

@iyer_prashanth: The last time the #RedWings finished the opening month under .500, it was 1993-1994 under new head coach William "Scotty" Bowman. It worked.


#2634071 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 30 October 2015 - 04:03 PM

I get that instant gratification feels *amazing*, but are there people here who seriously thought this would all gel and the Wings would turn into a powerhouse after just a couple weeks?

Preseason set some of y'all up for some VERY unrealistic expectations. Relax. Drink a pop. Take a nap. Do some pilates. And give Blashill a fricking break for 5 minutes ffs. This team may not be a contender yet for a couple years, but man the future looks bright. Get off the man's yambag and step away from the ledge...

Sounding like Veruca Salt up in this bish

#2634035 Byfuglien - What would he cost?

Posted by rick zombo on 30 October 2015 - 11:15 AM

I don't think there is a single potential UFA in the last 10 years (including Suter) that I get more excited about becoming available than Kopitar. I would have to be sedated if the Wings signed him. And wasn't he a Red Wings fan growing up?

Make a sign.
And if you even think the cameras are looking at you, wave both hands like a mad man with broken wrists attempting jazz hands.
It'll be magic.
I promise.

I also really hope they play well too as well.

The sign should say *BUTT PATS*

Dooooo iiiiiit

#2633876 Is Dylan Larkin a lock to stay in the NHL beyond 9-games?

Posted by krsmith17 on 29 October 2015 - 06:27 AM

Quotes from TSN's Bob McKenzie on Larkin...

It gives you some idea of how good they think Larkin is. They wont come out and say it publicly, but they think hes got a chance to be a special player. Somebody who really has unbelievable leadership qualities.

The unspoken thing in Detroit is that he might and I say might because its too big a mantle to throw on anybody but maybe he becomes Detroits Jonathan Toews. A guy who has character and intangibles to go with the tangibles, which is tremendous speed, tremendous skill. Just sort of an attitude and presence about him. I think thats the first thing that a lot of veteran Red Wings noticed, was that this teenage kid is unlike any other teenage kid theyve had come in Detroit for a long, long time.

Hes got that special something and its hard sometimes to put into words what that special something is, but you know when someones got it. The Blackhawks knew when Toews came up that he had it, and the feeling in Detroit is that Larkin is cut from the same sort of cloth.
