#2371043 Helm: "Minor Setback", still out indefinitely, *merged*

Saw that eaves news too. We need to just stop practicing or wrap our guys in bubble wrap for the practices.

#2369914 Time to blow it up and rebuild

Posted by Nev on 16 March 2013 - 04:00 AM

If I had come to this forum before going to NHL.com to check the result, I would have concluded we had lost - based upon the top half dozen threads all being of the trade/buyout/sack everybody type.

 

This season has been the worst for knee-jerk reaction threads after every loss.  If we're going to get a glut of knee-jerk reaction threads after every win, well, lets just say there aren't enough facepalms in all the world for that :dntknw:

This is just an awful idea. Pieces should be moved but what you are suggesting is not only wrong but irresponsible to the organization and the fans.




#2369092 Datsyuk Leaving?!

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 14 March 2013 - 05:11 PM

I for one NEVER want to see Datsyuk play for any NHL team that is not the Red Wings. Ever!




#2368999 Datsyuk Leaving?!

Posted by Euro_Twins on 14 March 2013 - 12:38 PM

It is but I can pretty much guarantee that if Pavs does head back to Russia at the end of next season & the Wings get nothing in return, the board with erupt with calls for Kenny's job.  OK, actually that's a daily occurance anyways.  I will say though that even if Pavs leaving is a lock & Kenny already knows it, I would be shocked given the history of making decisions based on sentimentality in the Wings organization if a trade were to actually happen.

 

I would rather have that last year and a half with Datsyuk then ship him off for a few picks and some prospects. I wouldn't even want Perry in return for him, I want Datsyuk to only play for the wings, cause I am just that selfish. If we aren't a cup contender with Datsyuk, we won't be with perry either, so if we have to rebuild anyways I want to at least see Datsyuk in the winged wheel for another year, I would cry if he was on another nhl team




#2369012 An appeal to heaven

We need more of you around here. I seriously was so refreshed reading all of that, instead of this negative bulls*** that always follows a lost. 




#2369006 An appeal to heaven

Posted by theman19 on 14 March 2013 - 12:57 PM

Among all the sky is falling talk (and not undeservedly so I might add) A thought hit me, "so when do we pull a rabbit out of our hat?" 

 

I mean after all we've done it for 20 plus years,....by blind luck almost we trip on, fall into or out right steal some guy, who becomes the guy for us and ensures this red wings train keeps rolling down the tracks. 

 

The divine intervention of the Detroit Red wings is well documented.

 

We wanted Pat  lafontaine in 83' but the islanders drafted him first,...we had to settle for some kid name Yzerman. 

 

In 89 we drafted the best player of the last 20 or so years and probably the second best D man of all time (i'd argue first, but what do I know) 53rd overall. The flames drafted a finn 3 picks up Veli-Pekka Kautonen. Heard of him? Nope me neither. 

 

We got Draper off the jets for a dollar

 

We got murphy from T.O. and the leafs faithful laughed hard, until he became an integral part of our D corps. '

 

Homer, Datsyuk, Zetterberg ect. ect. 

 

We all know this stuff,..and yet the thing that really gets me about our team is how freaking resilient we are. 

 

We survived two extremely high value D men having their careers ended and came out no worse for wear. Quick,..you tell me what would happen to a team like the blackhawks if Duncan Keith (God Forbid) had an accident like that?

 

We signed Uwe Krupp, we managed to lure Ozzie back (and win a cup with him for God's sake) after we kicked him to the curb,.....

 

Time and time again, just when you think this team is toast, something completely magically happens that ensures your ability to wear the winged wheel proudly for another decade or so.

 

I have no idea if we're out of magic beans. I couldn't tell you if we'll never challenge again or anything crazy like that. All I can go off is past experience and past experience tells me that this team will find away (and will probably do so at the expense of another team).

 

When I guess on what that magic may be i'm left with an interesting thought, say we do miss the playoffs this year......Remember that new rule? The one that says any team that misses the playoffs is first pick eligible? Paging Tinkerbell,....we need more fairy dust,.....   With the first round pick in the 2013 draft, the Detroit red wings select,............

 

 

 

 




#2368555 We are the Detroit Red Wings and we are making the playoffs

Posted by Crymson on 13 March 2013 - 08:46 PM

Believers may only apply. Here's to another year of playoff hockey and rooting on the team we know and love

 

Sorry, pal, but it's just so much easier to be pessimistic. It means no disappointment!



Great, I guess you like first round exits.Well the Wings have a special going on this right now...comes with a side of molasses that Dan Cleary puts in his skates before every game.

 

... and it took all of one post for it to happen.



Don't think so. What is the point of making the playoffs just to heavily lose in the first round?

 

Wow. Just wow.



2006:  Edmonton gets to the finals as a #8 seed.

2010:  #7 and #8 Philly/Montreal made the ECF.

2012:  #8 (underacheiving) LA wins the cup by BOWLING through seeds 1, 2, and 3.  

 

 

What if fans stopped believing?

 

History will be made.

 

Bingo.
