#2636507 Abby Signs 7-year, 29.75 mil Extension

Don't forget the iron clad, patented KHAZMTNMHMTTNIC (Kenny Holland Absolutely Zero Movement or Trades No Matter How Much The Team Needs It Clause © ) that it will come with. 

#2633814 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 28 October 2015 - 03:43 PM

For context's sake.  Jon Cooper was 5-8-3 in his first 16 NHL games.  It takes a second for new coaches to find their groove with the team.  Can we maybe give it af****** minute?

This. It's unreal, yet so typical, that people are ready to fire Blashill 10 games in. The team is adapting to a new style, growing pains are a real thing people. Blashill is a proven winner, how about you give him a second?

Edit: and wasn't our start last year fairly similar to this? Babcock is not the end all be all.

Never heard of this kid. Was he drafted the same year as Larkin?

#2630361 10/13 GDT : Lightning 1 at Red Wings 3

Larkin took a shot to the leg, immediately tries to go off, sees linemates changing so he starts curling on his edges and gets right back onto the fore check.

Effin amazing.

Next is Helene St. James to move on and start writing about Babcock and the Leafs.

Andersson can go. He's expendable.

#2619847 Pittsburgh: America's hockey capital? Lol

Posted by number9 on 09 July 2015 - 01:30 PM

Anyone who doesn't think Minnesota is the U.S capital of hockey is wrong. Whole state just breathes it. That being said, Detroit will always be HockeyTown.

Yeah well Minnesota can suck it too LGHT

#2619843 Pittsburgh: America's hockey capital? Lol

Pittsburgh used to be America's hockey capital.


Now that we have Eric Tangradi, we're America's hockey capital.  

#2618757 Tj oshie to washington

Posted by Euro_Twins on 02 July 2015 - 04:13 PM

Am I the only one who doesn't think oshie is that great? Brouwer is bigger puts up more goals and has a smaller cap hit.

I wouldn't trade Abby for oshie sorry.

#2618473 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by WingsAlways on 01 July 2015 - 05:42 PM


90 should be available, it's worked out well for the last 2 FA signings we gave it to. 


#90 needs to be retired and hung from the rafters.


In the men's room.

#2618201 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by marcaractac on 01 July 2015 - 03:14 PM

Maybe Quincey gets moved during the season? There is always a team that's completely decimated by injury early on in the season. Don't think he gets resigned anyways


Would much rather keep Q over E. 

#2617576 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 30 June 2015 - 04:05 PM

Wasn't a good fit for us for whatever reason. Hope he gets the chance to prove he can still be a serviceable player for someone.

#2616006 Yzerman wins GM of Year (& other awards discussion)

Posted by rick zombo on 24 June 2015 - 10:40 PM

Late 1990's to the early 2000's...Even with all that $$$, and a all-star roster the team failed to make the playoffs for 7 seasons in a row.
EDIT - I know I'm dating myself by going back to previous seasons...Just that I feel Stevie Y is by far the most deserving.

I agree. I'm mostly just being a jerk. I don't want the competition to succeed at all. Even Stevie. I just can't cheer for the GM of the team that dealt the Wings their most recent playoff loss. Same way I won't be hoping for Babcock to win the Jack Adams anytime soon.

#2614886 Todd Nelson to be Griffins new coach

Interesting, why didn't he go back to Edm's farm team.  


You mean the oilers?
