#2567203 Marchenko recalled from GR... Ouellet sent down

Posted by WingsallTheway on Yesterday, 06:38 PM

That's a situation where I am OK with trading Tatar


There is no situation where I'm ok with trading Tatar...


Literally our only player who is shoot first and plays hard every shift

#2567205 Marchenko recalled from GR... Ouellet sent down

Posted by Jesusberg on Yesterday, 06:45 PM

Just another take on the Buffalo brass scouting GR games - George Malik brought up that Rochester has a back-to-back vs. Grand Rapids next week, so perhaps it's more about preparing for those games. Not to say they weren't there to scout GR talent, but that does add a practical reason for them being there.

As far as the OEL stuff goes, I'm not sure what would get Maloney to move him. I'm thinking it'd have to be a massive overpayment. I can't even wrap my head around moving a 23-year-old stud player as part of a rebuild - at least, not without getting a king's ransom back for him. I wonder if it's a way to get talks going about some of the other guys Maloney wants to ship out (Yandle and Michalek). "Yeah, that doesn't get you OEL... but let's discuss Keith Yandle."

I think with waiver claims it's not announced until after the deadline to claim the player (so sometime tomorrow afternoon). I could be wrong though. I think all teams that are interested have 24 hours or so to put a claim in, and then sometime tomorrow the league looks at all the claims and gives the player to the lowest team in the standings.

#2567175 Franzen on IR

Posted by DickieDunn on Yesterday, 02:30 PM

Nobody would take Franzen in a trade.


If they try to waive him to GR, he'll retire and the Wings will be screwed.


If they waive him and release him, the cap penalty screws them.


The only real option is keep him and hope he either stays healthy, or sits on IR for the duration of his contract.


Pulkinnen or Jurco won't be waived.  If someone gets waived, it would be Andersson.  The Wings don't let players go if they're going to be good, the guys they have lost on waivers have done virtually nothing.  Knuble was the last good player the Wings let go because they didn't have room for a young guy, and that was more because Bowman wanted vets than anything to do with Holland.

#2567093 1/29 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Lightning 5

Posted by rick zombo on 29 January 2015 - 11:39 PM

Take it easy.  We're just talking about the other playoff teams in the division.  But who cares about beating them, right?

Ah yes. I forgot. Only calm level-headed discussions, grounded in the roots of logic exist here on LGWs in the wake of brutal ass-thumpings.

And here I thought I people were overreacting by making blanket statements about who the Wings can and can't beat after a game where our rookie net-minder had a save percentage of .666.

That and, you know, the presence of SimonSin is always a good indication that we're having a rational conversation.

My apologies.

#2566733 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 29 January 2015 - 01:38 PM

All this O'Reilly for Larkin+ talk is silly anyways.  


Colorado doesn't need centers. They need a top 2-4 defenceman with comparable value and we don't have that to trade.

Snow rules dude.  I miss it so bad.  Everybody in Michigan ******* about the snow, but I honestly dont' know what they'd do without it.  Snow makes Northerners tough.  You've got to be tough when the world is dead for half a year.  And we thrive on that.  You'd go absolutely crazy if you had to listen to these Southerners whine about a 50 degree night in dixie. 


All of the best things happen when it's cold.  Hockey, hunting season, dark beer, flannel, snowmobiles, ice fishing, and heavy set girls. 


What's to like about warmer climates?  Flip flops and Jimmy Buffet?  Ewww.  No thanks. 

YA man winter is awesome i built an ice rink in the back lawn for me and my little brother and thats all we do all winter. Built the whole thing in a flannel too haha;)

Helm already gets Tatar in enough trouble. You get Mike Richards in Detroit and Tomas is in AA within three weeks.

#2565867 Toronto rumored to host 2017 ASG, and a Stadium Game

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 25 January 2015 - 03:50 AM

Pretty cool way to celebrate the 100th anniversary, would be even more special if there were fewer outdoor games, and if the all star game wasn't a joke.

But still.
Pretty cool.

The wheels were off the bus...how is someone expected to react when the wheels are off the bus?

An existential question I don't think any of us are really equipped to tackle at this point.

"Overreacting" is an interesting choice of words to use while defending a guy who was yelling, screaming, breaking glass because the refs at a midget hockey game screwed up a penalty call. 


Lets put it this way, if you find yourself getting angry over a midget hockey game...you're a douchebag. 

The wheels were off the bus...how is someone expected to react when the wheels are off the bus?

How do you not see that Kip? Mike Richards is far superior to Tomas Jurco and Teemu Pulkkinen... Richards won a World Junior Gold, an Olympic Gold and two Stanley Cups... What the f*** have those two chumps done? And Danf****** Cleary and Johanf****** Franzen are awwwwful... :rolleyes:
