#2406054 Red Wings don't belong in the same rink as the Hawks?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 17 May 2013 - 08:22 PM

I don't think anyone belongs on the Hawks rink.

 

That place is way too dim.  It's supposed to be a sports arena, not a sports bar.  




#2310845 St. James: Wings have inquired about Rick Nash

What if we offer Columbus all of our 2013 draft picks?! Oh.. wait, nevermind.


#2307695 If we fail to reload with top UFAs we should?

Sign Parenteau,Moen and one of Konopka/Prust,get both Wideman and Garrison and sign a backup goalie for cheap.

Not the best possible team on paper,but definitely much tougher and deeper than the last season roster


#2306382 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Glad to see him gone. Last year he stunk up the whole blue line most likely to be traded. He got his wish going to the fkn Guppies, dont let the door hit you on the way out Brad.

#2303886 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

Posted by fixxxer on 30 May 2012 - 03:44 PM

Here's my uneducated guess.

I imagine Kenny and Lids had a discussion like this.

Kenny: Hey Nick, I've been looking at our payroll and I'm confident that we can retain all of our FA this year. I think this is an wonderful opportunity to for our veterans to continue the path that they are on. I will "save" our money for the trade deadline and "go all out" and see what happens. I really like where our team is at right now.

Liddy: Oh great! I have wonderful news as well! Kenny call in the reports and set the press conference for tomorrow afternoon.

Kenny: Oh this is great news you'll be staying another year!?

Liddy: f*** no, If****** quit.

Kenny's dream summer acquisitions will stat with the fall of Lidstrom retiring and continue without signing anyone of importance or players that are over the age of 35.


#2303211 Excellent 'Parise and Suter to Detroit' article

The Wings WERE contenders this year and will be next year with or without any moves


No they weren't and no they won't.

The last three years were two second round exits and a first round ousting. To claim this team, as is, will be contending for anything other then the 5-7th seed is ludicrous. A complete disregard for reality so to say.


#2292873 Hometown discount for Nick next year?

Posted by VM1138 on 19 April 2012 - 05:48 PM

You guys are high. Lidstrom only dropped off because of his ankle injury, which will heal over the summer. He's still got game and was in talks for the Norris again at the beginning of the season. He's not going to take less than 5.5, if he goes that low.


#2292838 Hometown discount for Nick next year?

Posted by Firehawk on 19 April 2012 - 03:40 PM

Is he not killing penalties right now because of his injury or because of his age/speed? Becuase, if he's utilized less and less, he has to take a major discount to come back. The last thing the Wings want to do is pull a Pistons and hold onto players too long.

I love Lidstrom, I am so happy we got to watch him for 20 years, but it's a business and you are a commodity. And when you get used up, we move on. It's cold and harsh, but it's a fact in sports. I wouldn't mind him coming back, but he can't be a reason that we can't make the cap because we want to go and get an elite young, fast and talented player. That would hinder the progress of this team. I think with every year, he'll slow down rapidly, so it's tough to keep him for 5-7 mil in my view.

At some point we will have to cut the cord.

Actually, I don't think you win anything at all...

#2283199 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Posted by Hossa4Life on 11 April 2012 - 11:46 PM

Zetterberg hit Weber high against the boards, could have been a boarding call...which is why Weber was upset.
But yeah, Weber overreacted and should probably get a 1 game suspension.
If this were the regular season he would probably get 2 games.

I'm not sure what he was thinking. If he was upset, he should have just dropped the gloves and said, "let's go". Zetterberg of course would skate away, but at least Weber would have made his point. But instead, he did something stupid.


Not trying to get into another argument on here just saying weber was eating the clock in the corner so Z was trying to get the puck loose with the hit. There was never any danger in my opinion its a play that happens in most scrums. Weber should have just accepted the hit and took the win knowing he was going to need to take contact in that situation.


#2283099 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Posted by jollymania on 11 April 2012 - 10:37 PM

So he wanted to slam his face into the glass, but not do it too hard?

That's kind of a nonsensical position.

he was just roughing it up at the end of the game, it happens. It was obviously an attempt at intimidation and possible injury. If he wasn't walking the thin line he would have nearly killed z.

Posted by jollymania on 11 April 2012 - 10:36 PM

Never coming out directly and saying it no, but you are seemingly defending it, by saying things like


It amazes me that you can think this way and call yourself a Wings fan, so Zetterberg sold it... got a question, have you EVER once laced up skates and played organized hockey? Or are you an Armchair Expert at the sport?

I have been in the same situation as zetterberg, getting your face smudged on the glass isn't fun but it isn't life altering like some people here think. All I am saying is that it wasn't that hard, can that make it through your skull?
