Posted by L3T5G0W1NG5 on 09 April 2014 - 05:56 PM

He should demand a trade to pittsburgh,if he wants to make the playoffs every year,No offesense to the Detroit Red Wings




but we all know that he isn't going anywhere,he has accepted that he is a nashville predator for a long time


Not making the playoffs is like the last thing you can relate to the Detroit Red Wings.

#2507013 Lightning sign GM Yzerman to contract extension

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 April 2014 - 04:30 PM

After the Legwand deal Holland needs to be canned, but I guess the dream of Stevie coming to replace him is a pipe dream now.
FYI since joining the Wings
Legwand: .56 ppg
Jarnkrok .75 ppg

Ya a whole 8 games nhl experience. Watch out here comes the next yzerman
Also legwand has 17 games and 10 points. Well see how many points jarnkrok gets in a full season before we decide we lost the next gretzky

#2505690 What is everyones second favorite team?

Posted by 55fan on 04 April 2014 - 07:28 AM

Worst post of all time. If you are a true Red Wings fan there is no second favorite. As soon as the season is over you stop caring. No matter how much you like hockey.



If the Wings aren't on, I'll watch other games.  Granted, this time of year it's usually a game that has an effect on the standings as far as the Wings are concerned, but I'll also watch the Wild because they're televised around here or the Jets just because they're there.


If someone wants to watch Wings and only Wings, that's certainly their prerogative, but to say that anyone who watches or follows another team isn't a true Wings fan is presumptuous and false.


I present Exhibit A:  me.

Case closed.

#2505708 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by Dabura on 04 April 2014 - 09:21 AM

Sean McIndoe:


This series would have a lot going for it. It would feature two popular teams that boast plenty of big-name talent. It would be the first playoff matchup for Pittsburgh and Detroit since their back-to-back meetings in the Stanley Cup finals in 2008 and 2009. (Each team won once.) And it would be a divisional crossover series, which would cause maximum confusion among the majority of fans who still have no idea how this new system works.


So could the Red Wings pull off the upset? I think they could. The Penguins are top-heavy with elite talent, but their lack of depth and spotty recent postseason history makes it seem like they’re vulnerable to being knocked off in the early going. A second-round exit seems more likely, but the Wings would have a shot here.


Besides, who wouldn’t want to watch a series that prominently featured the undisputed best player in the entire league? (And when Gustav Nyquist wasn’t on the ice, we could still watch Sidney Crosby.)

Not sure if people know but Tyler Bertuzzi is back from his serious injury earlier this season and is now leading his team in the playoffs.


3 goals and 1 assist in 3 playoff games so far.  I know quite a few (looking at you Richdg) who completely counted this kid out and wrote him off for nothing.


Glad to see he's back and seeing success.

This is what happens.

Trade Everyone!


My thought exactly, come on we'll give you Weiss.

I watched the game at work surrounded by Leaf fans, and everyone is so mad....We all previously "joked" for the past couple weeks about them losing every game before our match up BUT now that's actually happened I really cannot believe it.

Edit- until I look at Carlyle's face, then I believe it again. I dislike him very much, smug bastard.

I personally like the fact that Babs realized the vets weren't getting it done and buried them on the 3rd line. Let the kids do the work, they have been the ones winning us games. 

#2502596 They Call me...Tater Salad

Posted by kipwinger on 28 March 2014 - 11:38 AM

My GF had neighbors like that.  Fortunately her apartment complex didn't put up with it very long.  3rd time they had the police there for a noise complaint, the kids were gone.


I understand having fun, but the kid needs to grow up a bit or get a nice house in the suburbs.



Don't be such a curmudgeon. 



#2502551 Perspective

Posted by DickieDunn on 28 March 2014 - 07:25 AM

After 73 games:


Datsyuk has played 39 games.

Zetterberg has played 45 games.

Both have been out at the same time for a big chunk of time.

Every player projected to be even a semi-regular center has missed at least 12 games, Andersson is the only one who has played more than 45.

Miller, Quincey, and Kronwall are the only players to have played 70 or more games.

Tatar and Lashoff, along with the three above, are the only players to have missed fewer than 10 games.

Nyquist and Tatar are the two leading goal scorers.

They have dressed 30 skaters and have had 11 rookies dress.


If you had been told those facts at the beginning of the year, haw many games out of the playoffs would you think they'd be right now?  I would have figured close to the bottom of the division.  Instead, if the season ended today they would be in the playoffs.


I don't know about you guys, but I'm pretty proud of what this team has accomplished, even if it's not what past teams have been able to do.

Actually being bad for awhile getting really high draft picks and dining a key free agent or two is the tripe for succes look at us Chicago and Pittsburgh. Being terrible for a period helped each team become what they were. Detroit got Stevie y and a few key trades like shanahan then continued to draft talent with later picks. Pittsburgh got Crosby and malkin. Chicago got toews and Kane.

So to me it seems somewhat clear. You tank and get a superstar to become relevant but then need a competent front office to continue and build upon that success.

Except then you look at us, STL, LAK, TBL, BOS, TOR, MTL, SJ, NYR, PHI, and you realize you don't have to tank to find success.

The tank method worked for PIT and CHI, but failed CBJ and EDM. That strategy is only for the most desperate teams who literally have nothing to build around, like BUF this year.

We have Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Kronwall, Howard, Franzen, Alfredsson, and Nyquist. That's more than enough to build around once fat is trimmed.
