Thank you St. Louis

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

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

Kronwall should be our next d men in the revolving door of guys to ride the pine

#2381545 Any trade targets available again?

Posted by puckbags on 07 April 2013 - 11:21 AM

If we pick up a defenseman, I will be upset. We need two goal scorers/big bodies.

Kronwall, Ericsson, Smith, Kind, Quincey, Lashoff, Dekeyser, Smith, Ouelette

Those are 9 guys. And we still have Colo, White, and Huskins at this point.

We need forwards.


Long gone buddy..try to keep up.

Played a good game. 


I'll take the good with the bad, it was his 1st game..obviously a little nervous..made a couple horrible passes coming out of our end but also made some good passes and some good dumps out of our end...plays his position well it seems and doesn't seem fazed by the moment.

#2380838 Ilitch is being cheap with the Wings now that the Tigers are good.

Posted by puckbags on 05 April 2013 - 04:19 PM

I heard that Holland doesn't like pizza and he kept it hidden for years until just in the last couple of years Ilitch found out so he won't spend another dime on this team unless Holland delivers 4267 pizzas in a 1982 Honda Accord.  Thats just what I heard..................................

This team has no heart without helm.


This team has no goal scorers, Franzen is supposed to score..he doesn't...Brunner was scoring..he's not ...and tonight the rest of the team just stick handles into the corner..does a button hook and lose the puck.  We are so easy to defend.

The guy has 2 goals in 30 games..any way you slice it thats terrible.

#2379058 Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

Posted by puckbags on 02 April 2013 - 11:10 PM

People are still pushing for Yzerman to become the GM of this team? Lol the guy has been straight up Isiah Thomas-ing the Lightning since he took over


I can't figure this out either..Stevie Y is the reason I'm a Wings fan but he is not a good GM. TB is complete garbage, they have 2-3 good players, a bunch of chumps, and no goalies.  

Have I ever told anyone about how much I love spending deadline day talking about other teams' moves?


In the last 20 years we have won a cup every 5 years, I will admit this team is going to have to go on some kind of absolute heater this year to make it anywhere if we don't make some moves but questioning this franchises decisions about trades, free agency and player development is asinine !

#2372620 3/22 GDT: Red Wings 5 @ Ducks 1, Abs nets 1st career Hat Trick

From what (little) I've seen of the game (highlights + first period)...Howard was ungodly good. Mad props.


He was the difference..Abby's hatty is obviously the story but Jimmy kept us in it until we got our crap together.  The ice was heavily tilted at some points.

Howard's performance was overlooked, as usual.


Anyhow, it seems that Abdelkader does having some scoring talent. He really wanted the puck last night, and got to the right areas to shoot it. Perhaps it's a confidence issue?


This thread got really quiet last night the more and more the game got out of reach..the usual negative people have nothing to ***** about so they just disappear..it was very refreshing.
