#2365832 Time to pull the trigger on J-Bo?

Posted by LeftWinger on 06 March 2013 - 06:47 PM

Solution on D:


Kronner - Big E

Smitty - Q

Laser - Dekeyser

Kindl (Huskins)


No need to waste a trade on big name defender....our D will continue to grow and gel.  IF a trade is made it will be for scoring help...

#2365774 Should Visors Be Mandatory In The NHL

Posted by Konnan511 on 06 March 2013 - 03:59 PM

Visors should be mandatory for all players entering the league. They're already use to them. There is not a single valid argument of why they shouldn't be mandatory. Players use to be against helmets, but sometimes you need to protect played from themselves.

#2365956 Goalie Salaries. How much is Howard worth?

Posted by frankgrimes on 07 March 2013 - 02:47 AM

Anyting more then that......he can go take a hike!  Lets see what Mrazak can do.


I hope the Monster will stay healthy and pull together some great wins, this should lower Howards demands a bit I guess.

#2363885 Dekeyser

Once he signs, we have another good young big Dman. Yes start next year in GR and go from there.

#2362646 Anyone else getting pissed that the Wings can't hold leads

Posted by beachwing on 28 February 2013 - 11:38 AM

This season will
Be comparablee to those NFL teams that
Lost 8 games by a combined 8 pts.

We f*** up for 5 mins every game and bingo bango... We lose! Very frustrating!

#2361901 Bruins looking for forwards.....

Posted by DetroitRedWings1993 on 27 February 2013 - 12:18 PM

Yeah honestly just wanted to see a source for it, hadn't come across one personally and logically considering the Bruin's record I wouldn't think they would have been. Should have been included with the original post to back up the subject of the rumor thread so there's some information to go off of. But the fact still remains and I stand by it, dumping Franzen for a late 1st draft pick is among the last things we need to be focusing on, bringing in one or two more defensemen is. 


Regardless thanks for posting up the link DRW93 and giving us some sort of basis to go by to validate the thread. Franzen is back tonight, let's see how the next few games go for our leading scorer from last season. 

You're very welcome.  I agree, should've had a link in the OP.  I also agree that trading Franzen shouldn't be on Kenny's mind.  Finding a top-tier, two-way defenseman and a reliable scorer is what should be occupying his time.  Shopping Franzen or Filpulla or whatever other nonsense the media had dreamed up would be going straight into seller mode.  This is NOT the time to become a seller.  There is real talent on this team and they have proven they can win against the best even with a depleted lineup.  We own wins against St. Louis, Nashville and Vancouver and have also taken Chicago to OT.  This team needs a full, healthy roster and some more firepower both up front and on the back end.  Giving up now would be foolish.

#2361882 Ed Olczyk, professional broadcaster, professional idiot

Posted by T.Low on 27 February 2013 - 11:20 AM

God I really miss when ESPN had the NHL broadcasting rights.


I HATE Mike "DRIVE" Emrick and Ed Olczyk with a passion. I want Gary Thorne and Bill Clemente back. :cry:



This is the only thing I've ever seen you post that I disagree with.  I like "...a DRIVE...".  Like the enthusiasm, especially after having to listen to Major Homers Greg Husum and John Shorty Shorthouse all the time.


I wish I could hit "ignore" on my Yamaha sound system for Olczk, though.

Ed Olczyk, Keith Jones and Mike Milbury make Idiocracy seem less like a comedy and more like a documentary.

#2361172 Wings sign (D) Brian Lashoff to 3-year, $2.175m extension

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 25 February 2013 - 03:10 PM

Nice! Brian has definitely earned this with his consistent solid defensive play. And I guess putting the puck in the net a few times doesn't hurt either. Now it's time to sign Brunner to a 5-6 year extension!!

#2360248 Red Wings to be in an Eastern conference in latest NHL/NHLPA proposal

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 February 2013 - 01:43 PM

No. I want that too.

You may be the only two then....


Wings belong in the East.  Even throwing tradition of the O6 out the window, they are in the Eastern Time Zone and need to be in the East.  Plus it will force Holland's hand to adapt this team to a larger type player style of team.  Today the best teams are in the East and the Wings need to be with the best teams... I am all for it! Even if it means being in that division that would whoop us around for a bit, but like I said, it'll force Holland to change his team to compete in an Eastern Conference type of game...

#2324954 Bouwmeester opinions? Potential trades? *merged*

Posted by FlashyG on 12 August 2012 - 07:15 PM

Yah, why are those guys going to want to go to Detroit and get paid less because Holland is stupid?

After the trade proposal you just threw out there I think you should be forever banned from calling someone stupid.

Bouwmeester for Emmerton and the chance to sniff Holland's taint would be an overpayment.

Are we that desperate for defence that we'd completely destroy our offence for a slightly better skating Quincey who would instantly be the highest paid player on the team?

#2323071 Wings & Yandle twitter-rumors? Believable?

Posted by WingsAlways on 30 July 2012 - 04:30 PM

We're desperate for a D man like this you gotta give up some good peices to get good peices... Everyone's bitching about having the same team for the last 4 years and this shakes things up... Yandle is a stud and can almost get as much points as a defenseman as flippula gets on the 2nd line

Yeah but is he worth displacing our top 6 and destabilizing our bottom 6?

I'd like to acquire Yandle as much as anyone else but 2 top 6 forwards and a 1st round pick is robbery any way you look at it.

Swap Emmerton or Kindl for Nyquist and I would pull the trigger


As much as I think this guy is an attention seeking, follower hunting joke, I find myself with twitter open...

Damn it.

#2323015 Wings & Yandle twitter-rumors? Believable?

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 30 July 2012 - 12:56 PM

Nyquist, Filppula, & 1st.
If thats true...good god.

For that package we should be getting Hanzal back as well

#2322928 Wings & Yandle twitter-rumors? Believable?

Posted by amato on 30 July 2012 - 06:12 AM

I've been reading some of his stuff and I feel like yea, he's right sometimes and often before anyone else. But I think he just puts out so many tweets and hopes to be right/ hopes people don't notice when he's wrong. Then again, they are all rumors and it is fun to speculate.. I don't think id trust him 100% of the time but I'll still read his posts at least out of curiosity/boredom haha
