#2585802 Who should sit?

Posted by nawein on Yesterday, 06:44 AM

My guess is Weiss and Andersson. I think we'll run something like

I'd love to see Ericsson healthy scratched on the back end and replaced with Kindl or Marchenko. Kindl has played well in his few appearances lately and Ericsson has been a dumpster fire. I would try running
Smith Zidlicky
With the top pair getting around 25 minutes and the others getting around 17 each.

Well, that sucked. Gotta come back with Mrazek on Saturday, Jimmy was given a chance to rebound... 19 seconds in.



On a good note, attaf****** boy Weiss, I wish he pointed to Babs after the goal Hulk Hogan style and hit em with a leg drop. Hope even when we get healthy he can stay in the line-up, he's got some good chemistry with Pulks.

#2585267 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

It's actually based on a book "The Hockey Sweater" by Roch Carrier.


Famous book.  I received it as a gift when I was about 5.  Had it all my life.


Pretty sure the last Canadian $5 bill(before the switch to the current plastic ones) had a quote from that book on the back.

#2585209 Ilya Kovalchuk announces retirement

Posted by Son of a Wing on 26 March 2015 - 11:08 AM

Not playing for the Devils is not playing for the Devils. Whether sitting on his ass or working in some unrelated business or playing for a non-competing hockey team on the other side of the world makes no difference. None of it has any impact on the Devils. 


I didn't say anything to the contrary. lol


I'm just not going to pretend his retiring was anything but a legal maneuver.

#2584322 Helmer's baby is as fast as his daddy

Posted by Aznknight on 24 March 2015 - 03:02 PM

Detroit Red Wings forward Darren Helm is one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, but his lightning-quick speed wasn't enough on Monday when his girlfriend Devon gave birth in the backseat of the couple's car.

The baby, now named Rylee, was born on the I-96 midway to the hospital, which was a big surprise to Helm, according to The Detroit News.

"After the game I was in bed around 10:30 or 11, pretty tired after the game (Sunday), and she kind of woke me up and said things were happening real fast. It came on so quick. We thought we'd have some time to get to the hospital," remembered Helm.

"The baby was ready to come out and say hello, and that's what she did."

Helm has 13 goals and 16 assists for a Red Wings squad that currently sits third in the Atlantic Division with 89 points.

Man, kid's gonna be fast.

#2582927 Team next season?

Posted by DickieDunn on 19 March 2015 - 07:26 PM

Quincey's expiring contract is a good thing. It allows the Wings to move in a rookie after next year. Kronwall, Ericsson, Dekeyser, and Smith are all unlikely to be going anywhere. They need an open spot.

#2582743 Datsyuk out at least 2 games

Posted by LeftWinger on 18 March 2015 - 01:52 PM

exactly! Glenny is at his best on the 4th line. 



Nyquist - Zetterberg - Cole


Abby - Sheahan - Tatar


Helm - Weiss - Pulkkinen


Miller - Andersson - Glendening


I don't think I am missing anyone there....but that would be a nice line combo at least to start the game in Florida. 


My sis-in-law lives outside of Sunrise and will representing Red Wings South at the game! Lets Go Wings!

I think Jurco fits just fine on the 4th line. He's faster and more physical than Andersson, and I don't think the drop-off defensively is that drastic. With Helm in the lineup, we don't need Andy to kill penalties. 







Do you think it would be preferable to put Abby with Datsyuk, and Cole with Zetterberg, considering Abby is more familiar with Datsyuk's style of play?  Datsyuk is the more  unconventional player, and while Cole is still learning the system it might be easier for him to play with Z. 


Just a thought.

Very glad we didn't get Phaneuf at this point

#2582573 Helm injury update and a very good one too

Great News! Welcome back #43 (Hopefully!)

Helm said as long as he doesn't have a setback in next day or two he'll be back for Thursday's game in Florida

#2582580 Mrazek to start how many games?

Posted by krsmith17 on 17 March 2015 - 11:34 AM

Also per Mike Babcock, Petr Mrazek will start on Thursday vs. Florida.

#2582537 Mrazek to start how many games?

Posted by marcaractac on 16 March 2015 - 06:20 PM


Even though Gus is injury prone, I still don't see Mrazek getting the backup job over him when/if he returns this season, no matter how well Mrazek plays. He'll most likely be a healthy scratch or back in GR, cause thats just how it seems to work. Next season though he'll be the full time backup. Never know though I guess...


I honestly think Gus has had his last start with this team. With there no longer being a roster limit post trade deadline, I think Mrazek is here to stay. Only chance I can see him being sent down is if Howard starts playing like he did before his injury again, and they want Mrazek to log minutes.
