#2530663 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by LeftWinger on 08 July 2014 - 05:00 PM

How about Helm and Kindl straight up?  Sign Morris, have two RH d-men, waive Lashoff, #kfq is your 7th guy...



Kronwall - Green

Smith - Dekeyser

Ericsson - Morris


#2517598 What Happened to Nyquist?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 27 April 2014 - 12:13 PM

The Bruins' D gave him very little space and shut him down pretty well.  I think it had less to with him struggling effort-wise than it did having a lack of size and experience in the playoffs.  Not even the kid line was able to generate anything offensively.  It sucks to admit it, but Boston were just a superior team that was too big and firing on all cylinders. 

#2515789 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by joesuffP on 25 April 2014 - 01:17 PM

Franzen has 11 playoff points the last 3 years. Scored 1 goal the last 3 months of the year until our eventual elimination. Those 5 goals in 7 games is a streak he should have gone on 4-5 times in a year not once.

Gus has 23 goals in 28 games. Now that's a real streak that got us into the playoffs, not Franzen's 5 goals in February

Considering the league didn't step in when we traded a fisrt rounder for Quincey, I'm going to go ahead and say no.

#2500657 Callahan called up from GR.....

As I slowly lose respect for Lucic, I have to imagine that these comments were made in account of the animosity between Boston and Montreal made all the more bitter by the fact that they just ended their 12 game winning streak. But yea, sounds pretty stupid saying that. It was a clean hit, accept the fact that you got smoked. 


I've always respected the fact that Lucic played hard, but he's clearly one of the dumbest players in the league.  I definitely lost a little love for the guy after this.  Plus, I think the culture surrounding the Bruins doesn't help.  They're like Philly, right there on the border between playing physical (which is fine) and gooning it up because that's "Bruins/Flyers" hockey. 


Edit:  Here's how you take a legal hip check like a man.  Good on PK.

If one of our players tried doing that, even without gear, they would wind up on IR. 


Darren Helm would pull his groin watching that video.



that sounded dirtier than I wanted it too.

Goose with 25 points in last 20 games.  Mule clearly wasn't calling him out.

#2496309 Franzen calls out team

Posted by gcom007 on 17 March 2014 - 11:12 PM

I haven't read the article, but if that's the key quote, there's something very important that's missing: "I need to work harder and I need to want the puck more."


He's right in calling out the team's effort as it's been lacking, but he is not a guy who tends to characterize maximum effort. If he wants to be a leader and make statements like that, that's great, we need more of that, but he needs to walk the walk, lead by example, and be the first to admit he needs to be better at what he's saying.

Dear Mr Legwand
Welcome to Detroit.
I cant speak for all of us but I am very happy you waived your no trade to join the Red Wings. Some people here may not understand how much we need you. With four of our regular centers injured you have some big skates to fill. As a Veteran of many years you should be able to jump right in there. Maybe more so than some young high flying European.
I think you will do very well here, your brand of hockey that you have played for 15 years should fit with exactly what we will need to do to win games to get us in the playoffs. It may not be pretty but I'm sure Mike Babcock has a plan to shut down the opposition rather than outgun them.
You may not be the defence man we thought we were all going to get this trade deadline, but a 2 way speedy center in my mind is the closest and next best thing. Your defensive skills I'm sure will be relied on to keep the puck out of our net in the dying seconds of the game something we have watched our red wings have much trouble with this year.
As much as Patty Eaves, and Jarnkrok will be missed, I would at least like to welcome you as a fan to a player of the Red Wings.
Welcome aboard, Stay Healthy, have a fun run.

The only 42 page thread I see is the one railing the guy and discussion about how bad the trade was. I support a positive thread with an official welcome to Legwand without all the anger and venting. Thanks for posting Shoe.

Yes, like this pursuit, he's the kind of player that we can mold into the Wings style of D hockey.  What would it take?  Buffalo doesn't really need anything right now, maybe we can give them some veteran leadership for their upcoming drafts ... players like Cleary, Quincey, and Bertuzzi, and they can have Weiss too.    :ninja:

No offense to Babcock, but this team had Ken Hitchcock's fingerprints all over it.

I'm glad this thread was unlocked so I'd have a chance to say that this is one of the dumbest things I have heard from a LGWer in a while, and that's saying something.

The two coaches have very similar styles.
