#2383043 Official: Howard signs 6-year, $31.8m contract extension

Try reading The Axes responses out loud and yelling when the caps lock comes on. It's fun.


#2380787 Nyquist thoughts

Posted by Dabura on 05 April 2013 - 02:02 PM

There was one shift, it was recent, against the Avs. I think. If memory serves, we were bumbling around in our own zone. General stupidity and laziness and a touch of sheer incompetence. But then, Glory Be to God, Nyquist got ahold of the puck and, all of three seconds later, he was tearing into the o-zone like some kind of human missile thing. I don't remember what happened after that, but I'll tell you what, I'm generally very cynical, pessimistic about this team, and so it takes a lot for me to go, "Wow." And I went "Wow." It made me realize how slow of foot - and teeth-gnashingly namby pamby - we generally are. It was refreshing. It was pretty awesome.




#2380154 Nyquist, Tatar, dekeyser

Like when he gave Brunner a beauty of a pass last game and helped him snap a 16 game goal drought.  I certainly like that pair.

 

That's the one I was referring to.  The best part was Brunner skating to Nyquist, that smile and hug said it all "Thank you, you crafty son of a *****."




#2380370 Concerned - we might not make it in to the playoffs

Posted by Carman on 04 April 2013 - 06:51 PM

^THIS. Cups are the only thing that matters. The team doesn't have enough to win a cup unless some guys wake up and have career games from here on out. As much as I hate to say it, I wouldn't mind having a better pick right now.

 

Get in the playoffs and you can win.

 

Howard is an elite goalie, Datsyuk and Zetterberg can dominate. Franzen can get hot. and our depth players are all experienced and good defensively.

Smith/Quincey/Kindl/Lashoff etc. need to step up and play well.

 

It can happen, all of these things are in the realm of possibility. It's not like we need abdelkader to turn into lindros, we just need people to play to their potential, not above it.

Well obviously unlike Brunnstrom Clowe has an established history of producing in the NHL. Not a fan of his but I wouldn't be angry if we acquired or signed him.

 

Sample size without goals: 28 games

Sample size with goals: one game

 

Yep, he has a history of scoring... that is, less than 20 goals per season. He is also one of the dumbest players in the league, and certainly one of the least disciplined.

oh... well if it's on twitter...

And Waddell.  And Malik.  And Khan.  And Custance is the Twitter source.  Mind you, I just named off the Trifecta of Pessimism.




#2378775 An interesting point about our apparent deadline strategy

Posted by F.Michael on 02 April 2013 - 03:39 PM

Can't wait to see what Crymson has to say...




#2378769 Ericsson for Courturier?

Posted by Guest on 02 April 2013 - 03:29 PM

And where is Jimmy right now?

 

He's of of the top ten goalies in the league, that's where.

 

That said, I agree that Mrazek and Ouellet would be an overpayment. Couturier's future potential is by no means assured either, and his level of play this season greatly leaves something to be desired.




#2377805 Holland: "We don't need depth...Need a top guy"

Posted by Jesusberg on 01 April 2013 - 04:38 PM

April Fools'? I'm surprised Holland is actually admitting we need top six talent. I'd be pleasantly surprised if he can add something for the right price.




#2376716 Wings sign D Dan DeKeyser to 2-year deal

Posted by Euro_Twins on 31 March 2013 - 09:40 AM

I don't see how stating a simple fact qualifies one as a downer.

 

you're almost always a downer

#2374422 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

Posted by wingslogo19 on 26 March 2013 - 03:00 PM

If Wings don't sign him, it's going to be a show on this forum. *Grabbing the popcorn*




#2374316 I hate to admit this but....

Posted by DetroitRedWings1993 on 26 March 2013 - 11:39 AM

Signing DeKeyser and giving him a shot is better than doing nothing and letting him go to another team. Especially with the Lightning in on him, who we'll be playing with next year and already signed Andrej Sustr.


#2373754 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

DeKeyser could very easily come in and play for the Red Wings immediately. They have a lot of bodies on defense, but with Quincey out, that 6th spot is quite attainable right now. White is horrible and was a healthy scratch for a long stretch. Huskins is a nice depth player and Colaiacovo is always a health concern.

Stocks in Detroit area hospitals set record highs in price when his signing was announced.
