#2609590 Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 21 May 2015 - 11:37 PM

I have high hopes for Larkin but to think he is going to make the Wings squad next year is ludacris. He needs to adjust to the AHL for a full season or two. It will be interesting however how he fares against the toughest competition of the AHL off the bat!

#2609166 Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 20 May 2015 - 05:06 PM

It's Blashill. I'd bet the farm on it. It's the reason the Wings were comfortable not offering a max offer to Babcock. They have confidence that Blashill can be the guy or babcock would still be here.

#2608640 Question for the Board regarding Babcock

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 19 May 2015 - 06:13 PM

Did we really need 2 threads on Babcock?  Isn't one enough?  

One for Babcock speculation and one for Babcock landing spot analysis. We need one for Babcock conjecture.

#2608490 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Toronto Star reports "Babcock is leaning towards re-signing with the Detroit Red Wings on a short-term basis, a source told the Star."

I really hope Holland isnt stupid enough to sign Babcock to a short term deal and let Blashill walk. That is the worst case scenario imo

People forget that babcock coached the hell out of the kids the last two years with all the injuries and we made it to the playoffs both years. I truly believe that if someone else was coaching the Wings, one of those two years we would have missed the playoffs. A great coach adapts to the talent he has. People think his methods haven't changed but I guarantee they are different this year then they were in 2008-2009 when he could coach on auto-pilot.

He is the best coaching option out there. With any other coach the Wings take a step back. Go get him Kenny!

Sad that no matter what happens, we are going to lose a good coach in the system. If Babcock stays then Holland runs out of excuses to stop teams from talking to Blashill.

#2596516 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 19 April 2015 - 02:15 AM

It's funny to me that Ericsson gets killed every mistake he makes but dekeyser who makes plenty of mistakes gets a free pass

They are in different stages of their careers. Ericsson should be in the veteran phase whereas Dekeyser is still learning the game. They say it takes 3-4 seasons to know what you have with NHL defensemen. I think we know what we have with Ericsson now.

#2596514 Trade proposals -looking ahead to next season

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 19 April 2015 - 02:11 AM

Weiss for Ovechkin and then trade Marchenko and franzen for Weber. That's basically how this thread sounds.

You can't have 6 men on the ice for minute or so? Pittsburgh seemed to be able to do it all the time in the 2009 Stanley Cup finals.

Looking at their projected 3rd line vs ours make me want to vomit...too late.

#2587951 Time to move Howard?

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 02 April 2015 - 02:34 PM

No. It's stupid to trade a player of his caliber when his stock is so low. He is better than he is playing right now. When he finds his game again then trade him and go with Mrazek. Trading him after this season would be a panic move.

Filpulla plays a majority of time with Stamkos. I'm pretty sure I could get about 20 points a season playing besides that guy.

#2577859 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 03 March 2015 - 12:50 AM

People saying Zidlicky is small and can't play defense, he can play defense. But that's not really why he is here. He is here because he can make the first pass out of the defensive zone, knows how to quarterback a powerplay, and has a right-handed shot. Not all of our defensemen need to be shut down defensmen. Sure it's great to get a guy that can do both but those guys aren't available without giving up the farm.
