#2568276 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by amato on 04 February 2015 - 12:35 PM

I imagine Don Cherry's god in a three piece suit made of material with a stained glass church window pattern on it.

#2568187 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by amato on 04 February 2015 - 07:43 AM

"Good enough" maybe in two games. The rest of them the wings had to put score mrazek's mistakes. Sure we've won quite a bit but I for one can't wait for our number one to get back.

Agreed. I'm not by any stretch saying that mraz is ready to be a regular starter or anything.. I can't wait for Howie to come back either. I guess I should've said that the wings winning regularly lately make it so Howie doesn't have to rush back.

I just hope we don't forget how to put up goals with Jimmy back between the pipes.

#2568035 Buffalo Sabres could go for the record

#2568002 2015 Draft

Posted by amato on 03 February 2015 - 12:01 PM

Something about Ahl just smells like a minor leaguer to me.


right??  Ahl would own the AHL :P 

#2565360 What should we do with the Monster?

Posted by amato on 21 January 2015 - 05:47 AM

Wait until next off-season and either trade his rights or let him walk, imo

#2564201 arizona in full rebuild officialy (insider trading)

Posted by amato on 18 January 2015 - 11:17 AM


I was thinking more along the lines of andersson+Kindl+lashoff+2021 7th round pick for Yandle OEL and Vermette



I hear 2021 is going to be a deep draft year.... they might do it 

#2564192 1/17 GDT : Predators 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by amato on 18 January 2015 - 10:17 AM

Everyone keeps saying it's not a testing game cause no rinne. We didn't have Howard. So it was pretty even, battle of the backups





What a game. Tatar and Nyq worked so well together. I'm so stoked for their future :D 

#2563739 Could the Wings be better off trading Pav & Hank for draft picks?

Posted by amato on 16 January 2015 - 08:12 AM

Pav and Hank will retire as career red wings, as they should.

#2561993 Bertuzzi hoping for Professional Tryout

Official word from AHL Binghamton

The Binghamton Senators announced today they have agreed to a professional tryout agreement with forward Todd Bertuzzi.  Bertuzzi is scheduled to report to Binghamton on Monday, January 12.






The article says it's a 25 game tryout. Good luck, Bert! :) 

#2559083 Happy Holidays To All My Fellow LGW'rs!

Happy Holidays to all! 


(Hopefully Santa brought the wings' shootout lineup a new set of hands each)   :ninja:  :P 

#2557606 Rank our griffins d prospects

Posted by amato on 19 December 2014 - 08:56 AM

They just traded a 6th rounder to Carolina for Jay Harrison. Carolina is retaining 25% of his salary (1.5 million). Seriously?


looks like 30% 




Told that Carolina is retaining 30 percent of Jay Harrison's salary in trade with Winnipeg.


Also, seeing that Paul Maurice used to coach him in Carolina.... so he's a known commodity. That could've had something to do with it.

I think they'd all be good suitors, as well. The biggest issue with moving Kindl, I believe, is the term on his deal. One less year on his deal and he's gone by now, IMO. The Jets seem like a perfect place for him to go, considering a lot of their injuries have some term on them, and they have plenty of cap space.

Rumors have them offering a bottom six player (Thorburn, Halischuk, Peluso, Galiardi) in return for a defender. I'd prefer a pick, but at this point I want that roster spot cleared up above all else.



There's definitely a need there for d-men, that's for sure.



On Thursday, the club announced that veteran rearguard Mark Stuart would be out of the lineup ’til February with a lower-body injury, making him the fourth defenseman the club has lost for a significant length of time.

Jacob Trouba is out ’til February as well with an upper-body injury, while Tobias Enstrom (lower body) and Zach Bogosian (lower-body) aren’t expected back until early- to mid-January.

(edit: source)  http://prohockeytalk...t-til-february/




They might settle for a pick rather than moving a bottom 6 player. 

I'm sure Kenny is looking into it.

#2557076 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by amato on 16 December 2014 - 12:26 PM

Babcock to edm as a coach/gm?


Bettman persuades Babock & he goes to coach/gm Edmonton. Toronto is outraged by the news (they already had dibs on babs) and begins to riot.. Vancouver, not wanting to be outdone, would try to outriot Toronto. Both of them trying to top the other eventually causes Canada to implode. All of the hockey players get out in time and are deemed free agents by the league. The best players sign with the worst teams that are left. All goes according to plan and bettman finally has the parity he's always dreamed of. Babcock emerges from the ashes better than ever and coaches the wings to three straight Stanley Cups.

....and then I wake up :P

Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive  · 




Helm-Datsyuk-Weiss (Cleary)

Miller-Glendening-Jurco (Andersson rotating in)




Well well well, babcock.... does this make helm no longer the best third line center in the league?   :ninja:
