#2439163 The beginning of a new season.

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 26 September 2013 - 12:59 PM

Last year the experts expected us to be a bubble team, and we were, but I thought we were better than our record showed. Especially at the end of the year.
This year the experts predict a first or second place finish and I have to agree with them. Boston seems like our biggest threat and they are going through pretty significant changes just like us
I don't see why we can't contend for the eastern conference title and then some

Sad. He's a good player and deserves to have a job

#2436201 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 12 September 2013 - 12:52 PM

It's only one year and there's nothing wrong with having competition on the 4th line. Didn't we have 5 4th liners in 2008?
Edit: that was assuming Cleary ends up on the 4th line. I don't really want Tatar to end up down there

#2434515 Teemu Selanne to return for a final season

Should have went back to the Jets for one last season, but that video is awesome.

Or we could have taken him and iginla along with alfie and this year would be a mini-2002 haha

The question is, are you kidding? He's been a diving whiner since his rookie season. And it's only gotten worse with age. Just so happens he is also a very talented goal scoring machine.

He whines on rare occasions but I have never seen him dive. In fact, you are the first person I've heard who has called him a diver

#2430874 2013-14 Schedule Highlights

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 19 July 2013 - 04:33 PM

What's the deal with soooo many games aginst our old Western Conference rivals, and why not until Dec. 21st a game against the Maple Leafs?

every team plays 1 home and 1 road game against each team in the other conference.


I'm looking forward to March 11 and March 25 at Columbus. Hopefully I can make it to at least one of those games.


Also I'm REALLY looking forward to watching 24/7! HBO does that so well every year. They made me actually like tolerate Pittsburgh for 1 hour each week in December 2010!

I know a lot of people don't like Sammy, and he isn't my favorite player either, but I think some of the hate is a little over the top. Before his injury, he was always good for about 1/2 a point per game. That's pretty decent if you ask me.

In a 4th line role, I would love Sammy. Other than that we don't really have room for him.

My Custom Lineup
Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.800m)
Johan Franzen ($3.955m) / Stephen Weiss ($4.900m) / Daniel Alfredsson ($5.500m)
Gustav Nyquist ($1.000m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Tomas Tatar ($0.840m)
Danny Cleary ($2.600m) / Joakim Andersson ($0.875m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m)
Drew Miller ($1.350m) / Mikael Samuelsson ($3.000m)
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Kyle Quincey ($3.775m) / Jakub Kindl ($2.400m)
Danny DeKeyser ($1.350m) / Brendan Smith ($1.000m)
Brian Lashoff ($0.725m) /
Jimmy Howard ($5.292m)
Jonas Gustavsson ($1.500m)

Sammy and miller rotate in and out of the 4th line. I like our team!

#2427377 is anyone happy right now?

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 05 July 2013 - 03:35 PM

Are you sure? I thought he had one more year??

I think nyquist has another year maybe... not Tatar

#2426567 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

I hope I remember this thread so I can come back to it in June

#2426207 Wings in on Alfredsson

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 04 July 2013 - 09:49 PM

Fail, look at his points, they are abysmal. He has never even had a season over 60 points and now he is down to like 30 points over an 82 game season

Sometimes it's good to actually check your facts...


#2426167 Wings in on Alfredsson

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 04 July 2013 - 08:40 PM

Why does nobody here want him? It's way better than paying way too much for way too long for an overrated guy like Clarkson. If he's around for a year or two, then our prospects will be ready to step into the top six when he leaves.

They signed their cleary

#2425031 Red Wings won't pursue David Clarkson

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 02 July 2013 - 07:34 PM

We really dodged a bullet there. Imagine spending 5+ mil on an enforcer! No thanks
All we need is weise or ribiero or someone like that who can fill the gap for a couple years until our prospects are ready to crack the top 6
