#2570923 Franson to Preds

Posted by TheXym on 15 February 2015 - 12:24 PM

Bit of a surprise but I agree the price was too steep for what he'd bring to the Wings, and I concur it would have been even steeper for the Wings. He's a good fit for the Preda, though. Looks like they're planning to make a serious run in the postseason.

Overall, the Leafs got fleeced, though. If that continues, after their fire sale, it could be really ugly for the white and blue.


#2570921 Detroit Red Wings - All Time Team

Posted by TheXym on 15 February 2015 - 12:21 PM

Way too many greats to choose from, so I'm going to make two teams... And still there are a lot of pretty good players left out...
 
Brendan Shanahan - Steve Yzerman - Brett Hull
Vyacheslav Kozlov - Igor Larionov - Sergei Fedorov
Henrik Zetterberg - Pavel Datsyuk - Tomas Holmstrom
Bob Probert - Kris Draper - Dino Ciccarelli
Ray Sheppard - Darren McCarty
 
Nicklas Lidstrom - Vladimir Konstantinov
Paul Coffey - Chris Chelios
Matthew Schneider - Brian Rafalski
Niklas Kronwall
 
Dominik Hasek
Chris Osgood
 
Ted Lindsay - Alex Delvecchio - Gordie Howe
Syd Howe - Sid Abel - Norm Ullman
Frank Mahovlich - Marcel Dionne - Mickey Redmond
Gerard Gallant - Dale McCourt - John Ogrodnick
Jimmy Carson - Nick Libett
 
Red Kelly - Marcel Pronovost
Mark Howe - Reed Larson
Willie Huber - Larry Murphy
Gary Bergman
 
Terry Sawchuk
Glenn Hall


That's probably the best way to do it due to both the huge differences between eras and the vast number of great players the Wings have been fortunate to have on their roster. I mean, how many other teams would have the alumni for two games at a Winter Classic that were actually higher end when they played?

I'm pretty sure Richdg is the only one that seen the defensive prowess in DeKeyser's game... or at the very least, he was the first to tune into his ability... :rolleyes: Everyone else, join the bandwagon...


Can I put the wheels on the bandwagon? ;)


#2570800 2/14 GDT : Jets 5 at Red Wings 4 (SO)

Of course the Canadiens win their shootout.

Weiss whiffs it, hard to blame Jimmy for the shoutout loss. That was his best shootout performance this year if I recall correctly.

Bad clearing attempt by Kronwall was a bit scary.

Shootout time. Time to win one, Jimmy! Tatar and Goose are fresh. Hopefully that helps.

Boy, this rookie ref hates the Wings.


Halloran must be his mentor.

Quincey called for roughing.

17 games as a ref and this dude sucks as much as his co-workers already.


He took suck lessons from the anthem singer.

Don't gang up on ShanahanMan, he just wants to get the Wheelz on the tank. :). (Yes he started that thread.)

Kronwall with a rip! Bingo, Bango, BUNGHOLE!

Those shirts are sweet. Let's Go Wings! Hopefully Jimmy comes out like a brick wall tonight and the boys rack up some runs support for him.

Man, the anthem singer is a bit...off?


She had the suck knob on the mixer dimed out.

Wow, I hope the Wings do better than this anthem singer. Just about every one of my students in my senior high chorus and most of my jr high students would blow her away. Tension induced vibrato coupled with an almost complete lack of intonation is NOT a good thing.


#2570490 Detroit Red Wings - All Time Team

Posted by TheXym on 14 February 2015 - 07:41 AM

Avery - Williams - Cleary
Brunnstrom - Sillinger - Brunner
Grimson - Roest - Crowder
McRae - Habscheid - Downey

Kuznetsov- Melrose
Commodore - Carkner
Bykov - Pushor

Essensa
Riendeau

Coach: Harkness

That roster could still beat the Maple Leafs.


#2569581 What should we do with the Monster?

Posted by TheXym on 10 February 2015 - 07:48 AM

The good old days of Hasek and Osgood, those were some fun threads to read through. I'm sure Mrazek/Howard won't head in that direction though, we're all older and more mature :ninja:

Those wars were epic, and left quite the Legace behind for us all to remember. ;)

Monsters not signed after this season...
He's a free agent.
Just for the record.

I wonder how many people forget this, and also that Mrazek is on a one way contract next year. Let Monster stick around for depth, he has been a good soldier for the Wings when healthy. If he wants to go elsewhere, then honor that. In any case, I don't see him back with the organization next year at the NHL level.
