#2624630 So this is why teams hate the wings

And it brought them to the Stanley Cup Finals last year. Time for some Red Wings to look pretty.

#2624624 So this is why teams hate the wings

That's what stood out to me - "him and us". Seems pretty clear that the room was tired of Babcock - probably years of minor issues that built up. Guys going to Z or other leaders on the team with their issues. The majority of the players who have been asked about the coaching change mention, in one form or another, about how Blashill treats them with respect/builds good relationships. Seems like an indirect way of saying that Babcock s*** on some of the players during his time in Detroit.

And for the record, I welcome the coaching change. I'm looking forward to seeing what Blashill does with this group. I'm hoping that he allows some of the younger guys to flex their muscles, offensively. I just know that some of the structure he uses is similar to Babs'. I'm just hesitant to get too excited, only to see more of the same.


This seems to be the new trend/style in coaching. The Jon Cooper buddy buddy system. Instead of the old school, no BS, Babs/Scotty way... you show the players respect, come down to their level, work with them, hold their hands, zip up their dresses for them, wipe their bottoms, and braid their hair for them.

Today I learned Franzen = Cleary

In other news, Lobster = Skittles

Cleary should retire for the sake of my health not his.

I'm staying out of this discussion due to the fact that I get overly passionate about Sergei Fedorov at times. It's awkward for everyone.

To the larger topic, I will say there was nothing like failing miserably all those years, getting so close, and then finally winning. Those are my favorite hockey years, and I get tingly and nostalgic whenever I think about it. I forget that not every Wings fan has been around that long.

Do you think RFA Petr Mrazek is going to make 5 million dollars?  I don't.  I don't think that's remotely probable, regardless of the season he just had. 


Everyone always thinks that good young players, with tons of potential, are going to make a fortune after the ELC runs out.  They might for other teams, then don't for the Red Wings.  Look at Nyquist and Tatar.  Both are on reasonable bridge contracts.  Mrazek will be too.

#2624380 What's your roster lines ?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 01 September 2015 - 05:13 PM

I really want to see a Sheahan Glenny Helm line. No line in the league could score on them I love Blash already just for suggesting that.


I could get behind Helm and Glendening together, but that's wasting Sheahan IMO. I think he's too skilled to be stuck playing with those two and you are giving up one of your centers in the process. Sheahan needs to play with some combination of Tatar, Jurco and Pulkkinen this season. Especially with Z moving to wing and Pav out, I don't think you can afford not to have Sheahan centering his own line.

I don't like assigning a number of games for each of them to play, let them play and give the playing time to whoever earns it. If they play at the same level, give it to the up and comer.

#2624275 Good salary cap and stat websites? (Capgeek replacements)

Posted by Jesusberg on 31 August 2015 - 03:16 PM

It's think it's pretty hard for us to judge which one is correct or reliable. Hockey's cap says we're 964,545 over the cap. General Fanager says we have 375,457 cap space left and Nhlnumbers say we have 385,000 under the cap. I wonder what's up with the discrepancy.


I like the General Fanager's about page, though. They basically say they loved Capgeek and trying to carry on for them and they include links to a few cancer organizations.


Edit: Got to the bottom of it: hockey's cap includes ferrarro while the others don't. nhlnumbers includes Lashoff while the others don't. There might be a couple differences that I didn't catch.

Cap Friendly uses 16 forwards, including Ferraro/Andersson and Miele.
Hockey's Cap uses 15 forwards, including Ferraro/Andersson.
General Fanager uses 14 forwards (no Ferraro), but it doesn't account for the $740,000 in carryover overage bonus money.

Hockey's Cap likely has the most accurate number, IMO. Detroit has to pay that carryover money, as far as I know. Of course, Detroit's going to start the year with Datsyuk on LTIR, so...

Either way, Hockey's Cap is likely only off by 815K (Andersson) or 600K (Ferraro), depending on who you think will eventually get sent down. That's just my take, anyway.

#2624229 Curtis Glencross regrets taking hometown discount

If I'm understanding the themes in this thread correctly, if you're wealthy you should shut up and enjoy it, and never ever talk about what you'd have done differently in life. 


Does that mean that if you're poor you should constantly talk about your past regrets and failures and pine for a change in fortunes?


Or could we all just agree that regardless of the size of your bank account, you're entitled to talk about your life however the heck you want when someone asks you?
