#2576768 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 01 March 2015 - 07:50 PM

Still remember him as a rookie on the 2002 Hurricanes in the Finals. I'm a fan of this trade.

That was a very fast game. Our blueline can't handle speed. Physically and mentally their game falls apart against a fast forecheck

#2549652 HoF Power Rankings: 1st pick to start team today

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 November 2014 - 09:15 AM

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.  

#2550596 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Posted by number9 on 20 November 2014 - 10:12 PM

I was reading on hfboards, some of them are throwing a fit about this.
Its kind of amusing.


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.

2 goals on 10 shots. If Howard was in net people would be trying to crucify him.

Unreal victory. This is exactly what this team needed after that controversial game in Montreal. Howard came up huge late in the 2nd and through the 3rd to give the team a chance.

Ooooo I'm not even mad its almost comical to me watching this team derailed by horrible personel moves


Name one?


I support the job Kenny is doing.  He's kicking tires and he doesn't know why they're not coming here.  What's so hard to understand about that?

#2540200 10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by lomekian on 11 October 2014 - 08:38 PM

Again and again...the officiating in the NHL is of a spectacularly amateurish level compared to other major sports, It is so inconsistent that its hard for casual fans to be sure what the rules are or know what's going on and it turns them off. Hell I've been watching ice hockey for 20 years and I still can't tell when the f***-bags in the middle are going to make calls or not....and absolute joke in terms of consistency and professionalism, and there are so many games I've watched over the past 5 years where the officials have decided the outcome more than the players.


Apart for Bettman's golden boys, I don't even think its bias, just incompetence. 


That said, wings were good again tonight, and if they can maintain those energy and skill levels, they'll be a lock for the playoffs

#2521618 Emmerton-ov: Cory heading to KHL

Posted by Dabura on 24 May 2014 - 09:33 AM

Thats odd. I didnt know being invisible 95% of the time was good?


He's a good hockey player. He's just not much more than a fourth-liner in the NHL. Which, from our perspective, makes him worthless, because he's not going to help our team. But if he can be more valuable to a KHL team (and make way more money), more power to him.

#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

Posted by Guest on 25 January 2014 - 03:40 PM

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)

Posted by GoWings1905 on 01 January 2014 - 05:34 PM

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.
