#2543953 10/23 GDT : Penguins 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 October 2014 - 08:54 PM

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?

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

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

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 Guest 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.

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