#2638900 Who and What are the Detroit Red Wings?

Posted by Bill Berzeench on 22 November 2015 - 06:21 PM

We're starting to find our next core with Larkin and Mrazek. Just need to be patient and see what AA, Mantha and Jurco are capable of. Problem is I'm not seeing any high end talent on defense coming up

DeKeyser, Smith, Kindl, Marchenko, Ouellet, and Jensen. These guys arent scrubs.

So eighth seed teams should just give up unless you're the LA kings? Hockey more than any other sport, all 16 teams have a real shot. Eighth seed go deep all the time and every single extra playoff game makes the young guys that much better. If Larkin played with us last year against Tampa he would be a much better player at this point despite us not making it out of the first round. You start missing the playoffs it changes the environment around the team and guys like Dats probably wouldn't have stuck around

Nowhere did I say 8th seeded teams should give up. I said Cinderellas don't win the Cup, which was refuting Bill's point. But if you wish to set your sails on his turbulent waters, enjoy the voyage.

Well, heaping helping of crow for this guy. 

Don't let your hatred fade.  He's still worthy of it.

Sadly for us this is going to end Quick

Hey it's the predictable Frankgrines' lap-boy reverence of the opposition post.

I, personally, think the Kings are going to "Petr out" over the course of this game.


#2638304 Roster Moves by the Wings

Smith and morrissey

The Smiths are getting back together with Morrissey?!? Sweet.

What is wrong with this scenario is that the Isles aren't reallly getting a quality replacement for Hamonic RIGHT NOW... and that's what they want/need.

#2637736 The suprising rise of Jakub Kindl

Posted by krsmith17 on 17 November 2015 - 10:15 PM

I feel bad for those of you that would prefer to "tank" than see their team make the playoffs every season. Nothing is guaranteed in tanking. Even finishing last overall doesn't guarantee the number one pick. And picking second or third doesn't guarantee a superstar. Sure it betters your chances but every year there are picks in the mid to late first that turn out to be better than someone in the top five. For every team that has tanked and has followed that up with success there are two or three teams that has tanked only to fail and have to do it all over again. I'll take the Red Wings way over any other team, but that's just my opinion...

#2634321 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 31 October 2015 - 10:25 AM

Just so we are clear. Most of you guys or girls, whatever gender you are behind your computer, are talking out of both sides of your mouths.
Some of you don't think they upgraded.
Some of you say they are still young.
Some of you say the team is old.
Some of you say it's only 8 games.
While some of you say certain players have missed large chunks of the season. 

It's almost as if we're... *spooky voice*

All different people with different opinions!!!!

*horror movie scream*

We get it. You've had all you can stand and you can't stand no more. But you need to stop with the incredulity that not everyone agrees with you or your histrionics. If you want to panic and rage against the machine, have at it. But some of us actually want to try to enjoy the season and see how things play out without having a massive cardiac event. To each their own, man.

Wasn't a fan of the line juggling, felt like it hurt us more than it helped. 

#2636821 Abby Signs 7-year, 29.75 mil Extension

Posted by rick zombo on 13 November 2015 - 02:40 PM


They don't have anything to do with Abby and the extension but I will say this: 4 years and less to completely rebuild their teams and now look at Tampa and Dallas. The Captain and Nil have done a tremendous job and if we are only looking at the last 4 years yes better than Holland.


I don't know why people are bitching so much about Abby yeah the contract is on the higher side but so what? Mr. I is worth around 5 billion and the cap keeps going up it's not like Holland is paying him 6 mill over 7 years.


Nill missed the playoffs last year and "The Captain" has an unsigned Stamkos and an 8-8-2 record to start this season. Holland made the playoffs every year since being named GM and is 8-6-2 so far this year without one of the league's best players.


I don't even know why I'm bothering to say this  s***.

#2636820 Pulkkinen fined for diving

Posted by rick zombo on 13 November 2015 - 02:34 PM

Dang, I wonder if fans from other teams are going to start saying the Wings are divers the way we say it about means like Boston, Vancouver, and San Jose?  Maybe they always have. 


If they do, I'm just going to start saying that Babcock created that culture to get a competetive edge and in an attempt to get that one PP goal he needed in order to win a game 2-1. Babcock's gone now and it's taking some of the guys a little time to adjust to Blashill's more ethical style of play.


Yeah, that sounds good. ;)

Posted by rick zombo on 13 November 2015 - 01:44 PM


That's right, he was only the Assistant GM when Shanahan was acquired.  I guess I was exaggerating a bit. He wasn't responsible for ALL of the Hall of Famers that played for Detroit during that period.  Just most of them. 


Exactly. Get it right :lol:


And we all know that being an assistant GM means jack squat around these parts unless you're Holland's assistant GM. Then you're the real mastermind.

Make the playoffs for the last five years.  Bottom half of GMs.  Lol.  Only on LGW. 


Because of Babcock. Who was hired by Devallano because Nill told him too.

Again, just to clarify.  Holland "took over" a team full of Hall of Famers that HE DRAFTED.  And then he acquired like 5 more Hall of Famers.  The only Hall of Famer he had nothing to do with was Yzerman. 


And Shanahan. Bowman orchestrated that deal. Using Primeau, who Holland drafted, as an asset.

The Lord has answered the camp against Smith. He can't screw up from the stands, can he? Like throw a puck in or something?

I bet you he could.
