#2254648 What Ken Holland should do at the deadline

Posted by mmamolo on 10 February 2012 - 12:24 PM

I would imagine he was on something...seeing as he traded Kindl to the Leafs and yet he was still in the Wings final roster

#2250872 Nice little hit reel

Posted by jollymania on 31 January 2012 - 11:36 AM

Pavel, Stuey, Kronner, all in there. Making a second one right now too if you have any other wings hits to request, ill sprinkle a few in there. And unfortunately right now I don't have helms gigantic hit on Martinek.

#2248966 Props to the DJ at the Joe

I don't think I'll ever get tired of hearing "Don't Stop Believin'" at the Joe. I've always associated the song with the Wings, everyone else is just ripping us off. Also, who cares about the whole "South Detroit" thing? He put it in because it sounds good in the song. Detroit has a south... it's the riverwalk, Ren Cen, etc... just deal with it and enjoy :)

The Shanahan Jig will forever be one of my favorite player-specific tunes.

Too bad Ericsson doesn't have any family in California.

#2244661 Zetterberg Trade Rumor

Posted by LeftWinger on 12 January 2012 - 06:09 PM

If Zetterberg's name is in the rumor and the other name is anything short of Ovechkin or Stamkos or Malkin then don't believe your friend's brother's uncle who lives next door to Holland's bastard child's half brother's nephew, who just happens to bank at the same place as Kory Kocur...

#2219615 10/28 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 October 2011 - 09:09 PM

Honestly though maybe it would be good for the Wings to be bad one season and get a draft pick that can actually produce the year he is drafted and not 6 years later.

Any chance we get Andrew Luck?

Well that was a mistake, I've answered my own question: number 13 of course ;)

Rumor 2: Detroit
This potential deal is more complicated, yet somehow less complicated.

He pretty much lost me right there.

#2203331 Quick question.

Posted by Uncle Danny on 11 August 2011 - 03:35 PM

I disagree, although I can see where you're coming from.

Firstly, I don't think the Wings are any one individual's team, and likely haven't been since Stevie left. Even before he retired, an argument could've been made that it was the entire lockerroom's team, as I'm sure Draper and others were just as instrumental in maintaining team focus. That's one of the great things about this team over the past decade plus -- the team first mentality that brought success. In fact, I seem to recall a story about the team being down heading into the third period and every member of the team having to step up and stare both Yzerman and Chelios in the eye for near a minute before heading back out onto the ice.

Secondly, I think that Datsyuk is the player everyone else looks to in the clutch to step things up. He's the guy who will get you that amazing play to save the game. However, I believe (and this is from a spectator's perspective only) that the person they'd look to bring order from chaos when a series is on the line is still Lidstrom. There is a big difference between being the best and most talented game breaker on the ice and being the leader that everyone looks to for emotional direction. Lidstrom is the emotional bedrock of this team, and Datsyuk is looked upon to be the guy who takes that leadership first (again, IMO).

This, in a nutshell, is why I see Z taking the mantle as a done deal once Lidstrom retires. Not because Datsyuk's english is suspect, not because Z is the better player...but because when the chips are down he seems more the type to be able to tell everyone in the room what needs to happen in order to pull out a victory (and to back it up with his play). Datsyuk's a supreme talent, no question, and by all accounts a great dressing room presence...but talent doesn't necessarily translate to managing a room.

EDIT: I guess what I'm trying to say is that they all look to Datsyuk to save them in a pinch, because he can. They all look to Lidstrom (and soon Z) to ask "what do we need to do?"
