#2563402 Could the Wings be better off trading Pav & Hank for draft picks?

Posted by TheXym on 15 January 2015 - 07:16 PM

I'm late to the thread, but PavelValerievichDatsyuk and krsmith hit it right on the head. I'm not going to write a pile-on novel, as they summed it up well imho. Yes, it's a discussion board for the exchange of ideas, but there is so much to be positive about if you look with any objectivity at what's in the pipeline. It's the best it's been since I started watching the Wings in 1983.

Good win in regulation. Civilized, even.

Is it bad that I want Mrazek to take a shot at the empty net if he gets the chance?

It would be sweet if he broke a post. But a goal that ripped through the net would be sweeter.

Buffalo feed just gave an interesting fact I didn't know: after they acquired Hasek from Chicago they put him on waivers. Imagine if he'd been picked up.

Datsyuk with a nice hit on Girgensons.

Tatar atones for the giveaway with a tap in of the rebound to restore the two goal lead.


#2562963 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Kenny actually works the phones? Maybe for hookers and pizza...


I thought that was Hudler. ;)

I'd rather see him make a good hockey trade rather than a trade for the sake of making a trade.

Buffalo feed said it was the 7th shorty they allowed, and the first shorty scored by "Dee-Troy-It".

Scary breakaway by Moulson but he shot wide. Buffalo feed saying Quincey playing with fire with his cross checks.

All that fancy puck handling and nothing to show for it.

Sounds like a Wings game. ;)

Ok so why are they singing the Canadian national anthem?  Last time I knew Buffalo and Detroit were in the U.S.


I think partly it's been held over from when all the teams sang the Canadian Anthem at their games after the Ottawa shootings. Lots of Ontario folks are season ticket holders for the Sabres also. Just guesses on my part, however.

Is it just me, or was the ceremony way too short? Yzerman and Lidstrom's were much better, imho. Though both had much longer tenure with the Wings and were career Wings whereas Hasek was more travelled. Or, was the keep it simple and short done to appease MSG Network (the Buffalo broadcaster).

Classy words from Dom.

It's weird because I think of him more as a Wing than a Sabre


Same here, but his most dominant years were with the Sabres. Imagine if he played for a team that was actually good before his Wings years.

Danny Gare, another Red Wings alum if I recall correctly.

Best Hasek memory was definitely the Gaborik launching. Hopefully they show it during the tribute video and it inspires Mrazek.

I'm stuck with the Buffalo feed due to it being local to the Binghamton Time Warner Cable, but at least I will be able to see the ceremony.

Here's hoping the Wings light it up on the Sabres in a big way. As in Oprah picks up the Wings scoresheet and starts playing "Hank gets a point! Pavel gets a point! EVERYBODY GETS A POINT!!!!!111!" for them on the scoreboard.


#2562696 McGratton on waivers

Sorry to digress, but BoS's avatar looks like Betty While after she stole a hot dog from Murph. Was McGrattan her bodyguard?
