#2540791 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by rrasco on 15 October 2014 - 10:53 AM

 

I wish this was the case, but media outlets were reporting that Buffalo was starting the conversation with one of Gus, Tatar, Jurco or Mantha.

 

And that makes it not worth it for an underwhelming $5M defenseman.  We have D prospects, why trade away our goal scorers for another logjam at D?

Bad Pass Goals :lol:

 

Oh god this is going to be a thing now isn't it?




#2540680 Monthly schedule wallpapers?

Posted by rrasco on 14 October 2014 - 04:53 PM

Yeah, I still have last seasons schedule on my desktop at home.  If it's not obvious, I don't rotate very often.  Once a month between October and April.

 

This guy always has some for Detroit sports, but I prefer Matt's for Wings.

Sad thing is, there was a better attendance over the weekend for their AHL counterpart, the Rampage.

It's also Z's birthday today ... and my son's. Coincidence? :cool: :stanley:

 

My nephew also shares a birthday with Gordie Howe.  My brother was like, my family is awesome.

#2539243 10/9 GDT : Bruins 1 at Red Wings 2.

Posted by rrasco on 09 October 2014 - 10:46 AM

The first line probably won't last long.  Babcock has pulled Abdelkader from that duty before, which makes it even more confusing that he keeps putting him up there.  I guess because Franzen won't use the body he figures that line would be too small with Nyquist up there.  That's the only reason I can think of.

 

I'm really hoping Franzen has a different kind of year.  He said he doesn't want to be labeled as lazy, and while we all known his tendencies, when that guy decides to take over a game...he certainly does.  Here's to hoping he has that attitude all year.  I for one am excited what may be unleashed.




#2539106 Kindl on the block

Posted by rrasco on 08 October 2014 - 03:29 PM

Ok, this thread is 22.5 hours old. Why is Kindl still a Wing? ::headdesk::

 

Is it bad I keep checking back hoping for news?




#2538949 Kindl on the block

Posted by rrasco on 07 October 2014 - 06:17 PM

I can see him being taken by a team that either A) Has two or more waiver eligible defenders or B) A team that experiences some serious injuries on the back end. I just want it to happen... WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GET LEDDY AND BOYCHUK, ISLANDERS!?

I trusted you to do the right thing, Garth Snow

 

Well there's your problem




#2538923 Kindl on the block

Posted by rrasco on 07 October 2014 - 05:13 PM

Not that I think his services are needed here, but I like Kindl.  Will be sad to see him go, other than roster spot reasons.

#2538825 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

Posted by rrasco on 07 October 2014 - 02:57 PM

The roster moves have pissed people off so much that they're experiencing hallucinations involving talking dogs. Way to go, Kenny.

#2538533 Callahan, Ferraro and Porter placed on Waivers

Posted by rrasco on 06 October 2014 - 11:05 AM

Chuck Pleiness @wingsfrontman 20s21 seconds ago

Mitch Callahan, Landon Ferraro and Kevin Porter have all cleared waivers.

 

Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 29s30 seconds ago

Callahan, Ferraro and Porter all cleared waivers today. Nobody waived today by Wings.


So we're still 3 players over the roster limit?  What's to come of that?
