Eaves justified his spot tonight.

#2395782 Which Teams are Better than the Wings?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 May 2013 - 04:32 PM

This thread is very arrogant.


We win one playoff game, and already we're hot s***.  This is a team that struggled all year and barely made the playoffs.  We're not talking about the old Red Wings here.  


The play has been better recently, but I don't think we're better than half of the playoff teams.  Most teams are built for the playoffs better than us.

Hilarious....sounds like a comment from Ricky in Trailer Park Boys!

#2394955 WCQF Game 2 GDT - Red Wings 5 @ Ducks 4 OT (Series tied, 1-1)

Excellent game by most players. Brutal game by Smith and Emmerton. Howard needs to be better.


Split achieved. Way to go, gang.

YES! What a beautiful play by Filppula and great finish by Nyquist. Wouldn't be how you draw it up, but it's 1-1 heading home and that's the only thing that matters now.

Can't wait to be at the Joe on Saturday night!

I got a good feeling about this one.  We will leave Anaheim with a split.

#2389343 Rebuilding Thoughts..

Posted by AtomicPunk on 25 April 2013 - 10:27 AM

Quite a manifesto. I think with the possibility of making the playoffs, maybe we hold off a few weeks on rebuilding and just enjoy watching the boys play some good hockey. I agree with you, they need to jettison a lot of dead weight and players past their prime, maybe trade a few of those prospects for established NHL talent, but let's enjoy the ride for the moment? :)

#2384274 4/12 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Blackhawks 3 (SO)

Posted by Zetts on 12 April 2013 - 10:37 PM

Normally I try to stay positive about the Wings, but I have to say this:


It is an absolute joke that Filppula is asking for 5M+ per year.  Does anybody remember the last time that he looked dangerous?

#2383673 nhl.com calls Kenny the best GM

Posted by Guest on 12 April 2013 - 11:47 AM

Many forget that while he may not be perfect, there isn't a GM who is, and he's less imperfect than almost everyone else out there.


Anyway, it'll be funny to see HF's Wings subforum explode over this. Most of the residents there are inveterate pessimists who believe that they're more expert than coaches and GMs alike.

#2383003 Official: Howard signs 6-year, $31.8m contract extension

Posted by joesuffP on 11 April 2013 - 01:47 PM

Only on LGW would people complain about resigning our hands down season MVP

Mind you this team can't score goals or play defense... Howard's numbers shouldn't be compared against good teams

mrazek isn't going to just be handed the starting goalie position... I imagine the last two years of Howard's contract they will split duties. Even in two years mrazek can be backup and if he is as great as everyone says he is he will play a lot more games than gustavsson

#2380845 Ilitch is being cheap with the Wings now that the Tigers are good.

Posted by Wings10 on 05 April 2013 - 04:24 PM

This is nonsense, the guy has brought us 4 friggin Stanley Cups and never has been cheap. Some fans are truly ungrateful he is one of the best owners in sports period.

#2380796 Ilitch is being cheap with the Wings now that the Tigers are good.

Posted by Guest on 05 April 2013 - 02:32 PM

There is no truth whatsoever to the OP's allegation. Ilitch gave Holland the OK to offer massive contracts to Suter and Parise last season. The reason that the Wings aren't at the cap is that there weren't exactly a ton of players to spend money on last offseason.

#2380681 Nyquist thoughts

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 05 April 2013 - 09:10 AM

I dunno about you guys but does anyone wanna just go pure skill in the top six for just a game to see what happens?

Nyquist- z- franzen

I just wanna see what would happen

#2380239 Fear of the East?

Posted by JPT on 04 April 2013 - 01:59 PM

I've seen quite a few posts referencing how we will be in trouble next year moving to the Eastern Conference and playing some tough, physical teams. I was skeptical and wanted to see how we've stacked up in the recent past. Now I know that these stats were with #5 on the blue line but its not like he made us all that physical so here goes.I also included out record against the existing NE division


2011-2012 season: 10-7-1 against the East, 4-2 against the NE

2010-2011 season : 12-4-2 against the East, 6-0 against the NE

2009-2010 season: 9-6-3 against the East, 4-2 against the NE


Just for kicks against the big bad Bruins:



November 3, 2009 2-0 W
February 11, 2011 6-1 W
February 13, 2011 4-2 W
November 25, 2011 3-2 W SO
I know past success is not a prediction of the future but I think people's fears playing in the East are overblown. I think a lot of people think of the team as "soft" and its true that the Wings don't hit like other teams and aren't as physical...but they can still win!
Moral of the story, no matter what conference, everyone always needs a big, physical scoring winger. We aren't getting one so we go to war with what we have.
