#2392305 Kronwall and Rig on the wing?

Posted by puckbags on 30 April 2013 - 05:39 PM

What have you asked for in return? Are you getting Fair Market Value? :-p


The Panthers forums offered a stale bag of Doritos and a signed 1995-1996 Johan Garpenlov jock strap.  They said they would've offered more but they have enough negativity on their forum..hell they are the Panthers.

I also have thought about dressing 8 defensemen in 4 pairings, 3 lines of forwards, and an enforcer.


And we have all thought about how nice it would be to trade you to the Florida Panthers forums, in the words of the Rolling Stones " You can't always get what you want "

#2391454 Thank You Detroit Red Wings...

I just wanted to start a topic for us to say Thanks to the Red Wings for providing us with a great regular season despite all the adversities and drama and odds against us! (Thank God, we didn't hear the "Too Old" card this year.)


So, despite all of this:


  • Nick Lidstrom retiring
  • Tomas Holmstrom retiring
  • Brad Stuart trade
  • New Asst. Coach
  • Losing out on Parise, Suter, Schultz, Doan and every other "Top" UFA
  • Countless injuries to our Defense creating our youngest average D since Nick and Vladdy were Rookies
  • Gustavsson hurting himself and never really turning into a reliable backup
  • Losing Helm for the season (again)
  • Losing Bertuzzi's experience and Sammy to injury


(I am sure that I am leaving something out)


But anyway, despite all of this and despite the experts having us out of the playoffs for the first time since I turned 20, THE Detroit Red Wings proved once again, that when it comes to being a perennial winning team in the NHL, nobody does it better! Eat that Olsen Twins!


SO, Despite all the above mentioned scenarios that were supposed to have us dwelling at the bottom of the NHL, you guys did it.  No matter where you go in the playoffs, this is a winning season and every other team in the league is just shaking their heads right now!


Watch out NHL, don't look now, because the Red Wings just rebuilt on the fly and will be back on top sooner than you can say 22 straight years!


THANK YOU DETROIT RED WINGS for a regular season to remember! (now lets spoil some parties!)


Did someone hijack your computer? lol...in all seriousness it was a completely different kind of season then any i've seen in my 20 years following this team.  Not sure I would like to repeat this but we are the team that just got in and are playing our best hockey. Lets do some damage.

I don't know what Gus learned about himself in his last stint in GR but he has a completely different work ethic.

that's the kind of stupid s*** that could just rally teams to play harder to "stick it to them".


pretty childish and unnecessary.


You may be taking life a little bit too  seriously ..WOW

#2387143 4/20 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Canucks 2 (SO)

Posted by puckbags on 20 April 2013 - 10:41 PM

Danny D has passed Smith, Quincey, Kindl, Lashoff, Cola and White on the depth chart.  He is playing better than Kronwall and Ericsson...I'm not sure if this is good or bad lol.


This game is in the mud now..lots of hacking, chopping and hooking.

Thank you St. Louis

#2384710 GDT 4/15: Red Wings 3 @ Predators 0

Why can't Tatar play on that 2nd line, next to Franzen and Filppula?  He's more able to do it than Cleary.  
You say we don't have enough talent, and yet we send down someone who showed he can score goals. Not saying Tatar is a great NHL scorer, but he's better than what we currently have in his place.

Is he that big a defensive liability? I don't think so.


Anytime Cleary creeps onto the 2nd line he is being misused..he is a 3rd/4th line player..end of story.

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?

Very frustrated to watch him right now..he skates backwards towards our own end more that he attacks the offensive zone..so passive.

We flat out can not score. Doesn't matter which lines we use. At the start of the year if you told me we would be in jeopardy of missing the playoffs because we couldn't score I would've laughed Thought our d would've been the issue

You're an idiot we score with ease lol

#2382632 Helm might be out for season

Posted by puckbags on 09 April 2013 - 09:34 PM

I hate to say I told you so...

I love Helm. The prototypical bottom-6'er. Very valuable. Does a lot of the dirty work that most just aren't willing to do. He's such a little firepisser. I love that about him.


You told us so? The guy hasn't played all year, he has barely skated all year and you are the guru that told us so? 

#2382424 Helm might be out for season

Posted by puckbags on 09 April 2013 - 11:01 AM

Ouch this hurts, thought he might get 5 games or something like that and then play in the playoffs.  Better to be safe then sorry especially with a back.

Lame, as much as I love Helm he literally has proved to be useless this year and a good portion of last.


What? He played 70 games last year
