Pretty sad when this thread has more posts then the Nyquist signing.

 

We must beat the Nyquist signing thread!

 

Brian McGrattan was born in a log cabin that he built with his own hands




#2619866 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by number9 on 09 July 2015 - 03:45 PM

Yeah I hate when defensemen choose high numbers. I guess all the good D numbers are taken here though. We need to ditch kindl cause 4 is prime


Actually 4 is composite. 2 is prime though, trade Smith.


#2619847 Pittsburgh: America's hockey capital? Lol

Posted by number9 on 09 July 2015 - 01:30 PM

Anyone who doesn't think Minnesota is the U.S capital of hockey is wrong. Whole state just breathes it. That being said, Detroit will always be HockeyTown.


Yeah well Minnesota can suck it too LGHT


#2619834 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Man I made an issue out of nothing with my comment.
 
I see McCarty, Probert, and Kocur in a class all their own, so 24, 25, and 26 will always remind me of them. (Probert and Chelios pretty much swapped jerseys.) That's it. It's not a personal attack on any players, I don't care what they do off the ice.
 
 
Who?


Emdog bro. Don't tell me u don't kno Emdog....

I'd have preferred a smaller player. A Tyler Johnson type.


#2619568 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by number9 on 08 July 2015 - 09:25 AM

I think they evened out with how many were called back.
At least, that's what those two would probably tell you.

 

New Holmstrom should wear 69 instead of 96 and the back of his sweater should say 'NEW HOLMSTROM'




#2619550 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2015 - 11:59 PM

I love how we never talk about retiring 96. Holmstrom is (for the most part) universally loved by RW fans, but at the same time I feel like he gets forgotten in the talk of stars of higher reputation. Spent his whole career here and is probably the best net front powerforward of all time. Much like how Lidstrom was great without playing like a Stevens, Holmstrom was great without playing like a Lucic. Fundamentally sound in every way. Probably why those guys were friends (Lids and Homer that is)

 

Seriously, what kind of hit to his points does Lidstrom take without Holmstrom in front of the net? Not many do what he did at that caliber.

 

I know I'm just being nostalgic now, but seriously what's Homers knock? Points? To me he makes up for that in intangibles. What's Osgoods knock? Great stats but great team? Fedorov? Great all around but bailed? I think a true hockey sav would look at Holmstrom and realize just how massively important he was to the Wings.

 

For pete sake he ended his career as the final touch to the euro twins lines practically

#2618923 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by number9 on 03 July 2015 - 05:06 PM

I get that Blashill wants to have his own approach but I doubt he puts Helm back at center just to put Sheahan on the wing. There's no need to change for the sake of change... I think Helm is a much better winger than he is a center, and I also think Sheahan wouldn't be half as effective on the wing as he is at center.

I also heard Ferraro talking about Datsyuk on the wing, but I'm pretty sure he just meant to say Zetterberg. I highly doubt Pav has any interest in playing the wing after playing down the middle his entire career. He's still one of our best at winning draws and once he gets back and is fully healthy, I fully expect him to go back to our number one center, and Sheahan and Richards battling it out for the number 2 spot...

 

Datsyuk has played plenty of wing in his career. Especially when he's with Zetterberg. They kind of switch back and forth and share the responsibility. Which is one of the reasons I think they're deadly together.
