Small, left handed borderline NHLer originally from Detroit. 


Are the Red Wings now the Make a Wish Foundation?

Calgary got Jonas Hiller, Dallas got Spezza, Detroit gets a rock.

Do you have a source to support your claim of Detroit actually acquiring said rock?

On the bright side: we could never be as hilariously incompetent as the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Trade Lashoff and Kindl to Florida for a free appetizer with purchase of an entre at Chilis.

Wasn't it more a case of the fact that he was a Wings fan growing up?


I'm sure that's why he had it on his car.  But the fact that he showed up to meet another team and didn't remove it seems to suggest his sympathies hadn't changed. 


Probably 90% of the people on here would do the same.  If I had my pick of every team in the NHL I'd probably meet with the Blackhawks and Maple Leafs wearing my Maltby sweater lol. 


That kid was never going any place else.  Thank god Dekeyser is a Detroiter, lord knows how bad our defense would be without him haha.

@JasonGregor: MacT admits they went after Dekeyser last summer. Met him for dinner and had great meeting, but his licence plate had Red Wings on it.

@JasonGregor: "That was not a good sign for us," laughed MacTavish about DeKeyser's licence plate. #Oilers

#2523996 Avalanche are taking Ryan O'Reilly to club-selected arbitration

RYAN: "You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain." I can do those things, because I'm not a hero, not like Duchy. I lost the Minnesota series. That's what I can be.


GENERAL MANAGER JOE SAKIC: No, you can't! You're not!


RYAN: I'm whatever Denver needs me to be. Call it in.




RYAN: You'll hunt me. You'll condemn me, set the dogs on me. Because that's what needs to happen. Because sometimes the truth isn't good enough. Sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.


SAKIC'S SON: Ryan? Ryan! Why is he running, Dad?


GENERAL MANAGER JOE SAKIC: Because we have to chase him.


SAKIC'S SON: He didn't do anything wrong.


GENERAL MANAGER JOE SAKIC: Because he's the hero Denver deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a two-way dynamo. A Lady Byng candidate. A Hard Day's Knight.


SAKIC'S SON: That sounds like a lot of bulls***.

Jello, baby.

#2523158 Kesler still wants a trade.....

Posted by Richdg on 07 June 2014 - 04:25 PM

If the rumors are true of Thornton, Kesler, and Spezza all being on the market, it will drive the price down. Fewer teams competing for the same resources. Basic econ guys. This could work in our favor if Holland..........nevermind......

Hey, I'm just thrilled they have the lower bowl paying attention to the game instead of their phones.

#2523223 GM moves

Posted by FlashyG on 08 June 2014 - 12:05 AM

No, but there is Ericsson, dekeyser, quincey. And I don't mind giving up second or third rounders. How many of those have worked out recently anyway? I remember seeing a thread with a post about how guys that we have passed up on in the draft have turned out a lot better than the guys the wings picked.

Ericsson, Dekeyser and Quincey are not Jack Johnson type defencemen. Especially not the calibre he was when he was traded.


We also don't have the 8th overall pick to offer.


As far as how many 2nd and 3rd round picks have worked out...in the Wings case the answer would be many. Ouellet, Sproul, Jurco, Tatar, Bertuzzi, Nastasiuk, Janmark etc. 


Just because better people have been passed over doesn't mean we didn't get good players with our selections.


Hats off to the Kings for their success, but we don't need to emulate every team that wins the cup...The Wings system has been proven successful too.
