In Topic: HoF Power Rankings: 1st pick to start team today

21 November 2014 - 11:56 PM

Gretzky had longevity over Lemieux and Orr, who both had health issues.  That's why he'd be a better pick to start your franchise with.  


100% agree, part of being a great player is the ability to last a long time, stay out of situations where you don't get injured and just have all around good health. Lids is a prime example of this also. 

In Topic: Alfie not playing this season

I can see us with easily 3 more points so far had we a healthy Alf.


Did you miss the "if" on purpose? lol

In Topic: Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

21 November 2014 - 11:48 PM


Which is hilarious considering no one thought Nestrasil would ever be a Red Wing during the 2013-14 season. All of the sudden he plays 13 games and suddenly we've lost a great prospect. gimme a break.


It's like when we lost Matthias everyone was up in arms, turns out he's a 3rd line checking forward 

In Topic: Myers close to become a wing?

15 November 2014 - 09:49 PM

Why not? Better than fools like Del Zotto or Green...


Give Buffalo what they want. They have no interest in Franzen or Weiss. Kenny can find other solutions for those two. Buffalo wants established Wingers with potential or high end offensive prospects. Myers is worth it. He can play a lot better than he actually is. Hard to develop for a young defenseman in this environment...

Detroit is no longer a top address for FA's and we're far away from being a contender. Time to react, even if we suck for one or two seasons. Pav and Z won't play forever...



- Trade Ericsson away...i have no idea what we'd get for him, but I don't think a 2nd Rounder is too much.

- Use the 2nd Rounder and add Tatar, Nyquist and Ferraro to get Myers

- As we now need Wingers, get Troy Brouwer and send Weiss back to Washington. Troy isn't the greatest fan of Coach Oates plus they have too many RW's and need Centers

- Add some more talent and bring in Evander Kane by flipping over Smith, Franzen, Andersson, McCollum and a future 2nd Rounder

- If Alfredsson returns - fine. Otherwise, sign Stempniak as a depth forward.

- Give our youth a chance. Even if we suck...as wrote before, I don't care. We need to do something...

@PxPOttawa: A stretcher and paramedics have just been called to the Detroit dressing room??



Hopefully nothing serious, probably helping the Wings lifeless offense out of the room .
