#2666662 25 YEARS BABY!

Posted by puckbags on 09 April 2016 - 09:01 PM

Im already over the 2 losses. We got in, lets move forward. Pay tampa back for last year!


Exactly, who cares, we lost our way in. Everyone is even in and we have the same chance everyone else does. LETS GO !

In the last half of the game - the final 30 minutes - we had two shots on goal. Talk about a stat of the night.


Lol, is this for real? That is pathetic

It was a good game our guys showed up to watch tonight.

this game sums up nicely how we've played this year:


brief moments of greatness


followed by


long stretches of disastrous ineptitude


Exactly, when we are good we usually can't score and when we are bad we give up one chance and it ends up in our net.

As bad as todays game was I think Blashill is the right coach for this team. He openend the Wings up for a more attractive, offensive style. It might fall flat this year but I take Blashills approach over Babcocks defensive first style any time.

And by the way : It's not over yet. We still have all the chances to make the playoffs.

I'm confused, we have struggled to score goals all year...our style is still the same, if anything we are worse offensively under Blashill.

At this point  I would rather be 4 pts back and playing great than 1 pt up and playing like hot garbage.   People are slamming the D but this has been our problem since day 1 , we don't have a number 1. I love Kronner but he's a # 2, Green and DK are 3/4 and all the rest are 5/6. We have a whole pile of average d men. They can't get the puck up the ice and have no idea how to jump into the play.   Tons of games left...lets get on a run here.  LETS GO

Inability to put the puck in the net just kills this team.

I have a wild idea NHL, why dont we just let people kick the damn puck in the net, what is the big deal. That way there is no grey area.  Rocket science. 

#2655646 Jakub Kindl traded to Panthers

I can't speak for every one else, but I'd rather have Quincey next season.

I don't think Ericsson is worth his 4.25M, and he's got four years left at that hit. It's more about how his contract is handcuffing the team for me.


What is he worth then? He falls right into the value of what similar players make. Just because you don't like him doesn't make his value less. I hate to tell you but 4 million is a pretty pedestrian cap hit these days. Similar players in his range are Emelin, Larson, Brodin, Tanev, Coburn....Would I prefer some of these guys over E?? sure I would but his cap hit is right where it should be.  

#2650511 Players Tribune: John Scott A Guy Like me

Great read. All star game is a sideshow, John Scott playing in it is a sideshow but considering the NHL tried to completely screw him over I'm glad he's going.  Get rid of the all star game, give these guys 5-7 days off to recharge and we would get better hockey the last 30-35 games. 

#2649526 Joakim Andesson on Waivers

Posted by puckbags on 22 January 2016 - 08:47 PM

I sure hope we get to see Jensen, its my opinion, he is the better of the 3 down there, PLUS if gets in, we'd have 3 RH'd d-men playing! Crazy!  I'd bring him up and give either E or Smith some games off here and there for the next month or so...


Love this, Smith has probably been playing his best hockey as a Wing and you want him to sit for what reason? E i totally agree with.

Wings tried to trade Kindl for draft pick but couldn't. Teams wanted them to take back a player in return and they can't assume more salary.

#2646946 Jakub Kindl waived

Posted by puckbags on 09 January 2016 - 12:24 PM

Kind of crazy they actually put him on waivers, but after how much praise Marchenko has received lately I kind of figured it would happen.

I'm kind of surprised they couldn't get a 7th round pick for him, or a borderline bust prospect or something, but still, good stuff.


The problem is that he just doesn't have enough value to trade for even for a late round pick when teams know he is going on waivers most likely.  They might as well try their chances and if they don't get him oh well.

He gave Primeau and Coffey more salary than he took on it. He had a balls to make trades... Something which Kenny is missing. Kenny is not team builder, he's more maintenance manager...


I agree he had the balls to do it but it's not possible to make trades like that now.  We can't just chop a couple of guys out of our lineup and trade some prospects and picks for 4-5 million salary without sending some the other way.

I don't give a sh*t about back to backs or how many games in how many nights we play. Can we please go with Mrazek for 5-6 games in a row and let him roll.  He is our best goalie...end of story.
