#2491137 Ken Holland's Moves From 2009-2014

Posted by Wing Across The Pond on 05 March 2014 - 06:02 PM

A year before your spreadsheet, he signed Marian Hossa.

 

And a year before that, he signed Brian Rafalski.

 

One won us a cup. The other got us to back-to-back finals.




#2489806 3/4 GDT: Red Wings at Devils

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 04 March 2014 - 09:40 PM

this team is a joke.
 
why do we even bother?
 
they obviously stopped caring.
 
why should we?


You think they don't care? Any team in the league with the injuries this team has had this year would be a lottery team. Ya crappy way to lose, but I thought they battled hard and it's just such a shame that people haven't got to see this team actually healthy. Because I think it could be a damn good team


#2477097 Sammy Waived

Only if he is free. I still think Sammy has something left in the tank and can help certain teams, whoever there are no teams who will be willing to take on his contract.

The Wings have already paid the majority of his contract for the year.  He's a UFA at the end of the season.  If someone actually wanted him and thought he could help, I don't think the money would be a deal breaker. 




#2470090 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

Both Toronto goals today were due to that last effort players are taking to score. We do not have players willing to do that and we lost. 


Bozak throwing his stick up and having a point shot hit it is extra effort, but Abby driving the net hard to tie the game isn't?

The Red Wings loss today had nothing to do with compete level. That was the best 60 minute performance they have put together in awhile.


#2461391 Mike Commodore's experience with the Wings

Babcock is in the mold of Bowman.  He doesn't seem very interested in being liked and there's a method to his madness.

 

Aye. People sometimes forget that players often detested Bowman, even if they still did respect him.




#2461377 Mike Commodore's experience with the Wings

Posted by Crymson on 06 December 2013 - 12:32 AM

The stuff that he said about his time in Columbus made it seem like he likes to blame others and make excuses for why he isn't playing. After reading that I had a harder time believing his side of the story of his time in Detroit.
I also don't remember him standing out when he played.

But who knows.

 

Agreed. Commodore is a whiner. He's also got a terrible memory. Let's go down the list.

 

The Wings started with six wins and six losses, not five and seven... Ian White was injured on the 13th of November, 2011, and Commodore was played only one game in the immediate future---not two, not three---and he played seven minutes, not three....  Commodore played three days before Christmas... Brendan Smith was Babcock's single minor-league call-up on defense in that season, and he played with the team for only four nights (three games) in 2011 (he was then sent down until March)... and so on.

 

If Commodore's going to spill his guts like this, he really ought to ensure first that he's got his facts right.

I love this. Ugly jersey are fun when they're intentionally bad.

I agree with Crymson while im sick of the losses id rather they come in ot where we are snagging a point




#2449634 11/1 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Flames 3

Posted by sjr2012 on 01 November 2013 - 08:37 PM

why do we play well against the good teams and yet bring ourselves down to the level of the bottom-feeders?

pity

Thank you ... thank you ... I'm the happiest person in Vancouver right now !!!!

Is Weiss evenf****** playing?

Dude is garbage.

 

At least Filppula was good looking.  




#2444531 10/14 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 2

Posted by Crymson on 14 October 2013 - 04:45 PM

 

watching the highlights from the playoffs last year with hawks shows a crime that Gus and his speed aren't on this squad right now...

 

 

Too many Guses here.

 

Lashoff was desperate on that 5 on 3 kill, was great too see. Smith better feel that hot flame under his ass only getting hotter!!!

 

I like having Lashoff on the team. He's bigger than Smith, better defensively, and more poised. Best of all, I don't tense up when he has the puck!




#2443238 10/10 GDT: Coyotes 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by GoWings1905 on 10 October 2013 - 09:21 PM

You would think the speed and skill of the third line in the playoffs last season would have made some lasting impact on Holland/Babcock. Instead they insist on icing an old and slow team, with veterans that all provide the same attribute of nothing. There's simply no excuse for Tatar and Nyquist not to play over the likes of Samuelsson, Cleary and Bertuzzi. These veterans aren't making the Red Wings better and this continues to be the most glaring flaw of the organization.


#2431299 It's time - to predict 2014 Team USA

Posted by Richdg on 23 July 2013 - 04:15 PM

Of course this will change based on who is healthy and playing well next winter. As for G's Miller will be 3rd. Quick/Howard will be the starter based on who is playing better at the time.

 

IIRC Ryan, Backus, and Brown were on a line together and played really well.
