#2450611 Smith to IR, Almqvist called up

Posted by Dabura on 03 November 2013 - 04:09 PM

I'm hoping Almqvist magically becomes that elite Rafalski-esqe puck-moving defenseman we so badly need. And that he becomes that guy in the span of one game.

Weiss had a great game. Just wanted to say.

#2437644 ESPN Future Power Rankings: Red Wings #2

Posted by Euro_Twins on 19 September 2013 - 05:49 PM

Regular season he's been very consistent.  I think it's not unreasonable to say his play has been declining regarding playoffs though. 

I agree somewhat about the playoffs, but the writer is off their rocker. Datsyuk is not way past his prime nor is Zetterberg

Where are the line ups Hockeytown? And don't give me they aren't posted, if you can't find them online I demand you dress as a ninja, break into the Wing's locker room and get them to us!

#2436079 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by Crymson on 12 September 2013 - 10:28 AM

Gee, great. At least it's only for a year.


Cleary had better have an excellent year. Otherwise I'm going to do some very extreme nothing, because there's nothing I can do.

#2432638 Joakim Andersson re-signs, 2yrs, $1.465m ($732,500k cap hit)

Posted by 55fan on 06 August 2013 - 02:41 PM


Do you still like him?

It's the offseason.  I'll like him again in September.


For now, he gets the summer off from being liked.  He's on vacation and shouldn't have to worry about whether or not some middle-aged unbotoxed wretch in North Dakota approves.

49 years until the next Cup in Chicago! 


Beiber, Kane, and Toews will be able to grow facial hair by then.

#2428602 Jim Nill takes Red Wings’ director of amateur scouting to Dallas

Posted by Yzerman191 on 07 July 2013 - 06:06 PM

I love how people spout off all of this banter about Nill being better than Holland because of XYZ and being the "real GM" in Detroit, and then they go complain in other threads about every signing and draft we've made over the last several years. Which is it people?


This is probably going to have fairly insignificant effects overall. I actually can't remember the last North American impact player the Red Wings drafted. I guess Darren Helm in 2005 or Jimmy Howard in 2003. 

#2429274 Smith files for arbitration

Good. His indifferent play last season ought to get us a good value.

#2427828 is anyone happy right now?

Posted by Crymson on 05 July 2013 - 10:54 PM

Well some people like me want cups other want to just make the playoffs every year.

These signings don't make us cup contenders. Ryan and/or clarkson would've.



Clarkson? The guy who is a bad skater, a mediocre passer, undisciplined, poor at defense, terrible at blocking shots, and generally possessed of an indifferent hockey mind would have made this team a Cup contender? I can't help but think that you simply looked under 2011-2012, saw "30 goals," and assumed that he was a premiere power forward. Devils fans would laugh at that description. I've been on HF all day, and I haven't seen a single one who believes that he was worth anywhere near the contract he got.

Those guys manhandle everyone. Chara could suck Clarkson's eyeballs out of his sockets if he felt like it.


What's you point?


It's like saying "OMG, Stamkos and Ovechkin are going to score on us!!!!!!!"

#2428585 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by frankgrimes on 07 July 2013 - 05:03 PM

Great idea just increase the damn offer a bit and sign this guy, he should easily be the top priority right now. If the Wings lose him and re-sign Cleary it would be stupid.

Although I wonder how much of Holland pursuing Cleary has to do with Brunner not coming back?
Signing both Brunner and Cleary would have been stupid to begin with.  Too much cap room wasted.    
In any case Brunner not returning doesn't mean Holland should go after the ugliest girl at the bar.  

The thing is this should have been done some weeks ago why did he wait so long. It is not like the Wings played till January...if Brunner goes I hope he signs with the Islanders they are a young and coming team him and Tavares would be deadly

#2428560 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by Playmaker on 07 July 2013 - 03:39 PM

It's only 2 days after the start of FA, I don't think it's too late. This is normal, the big fish go first, and it's takes longer for the dust to settle and the other FA's to sign. I like Brunner, but I don't think he's proven enough in the short time he's been in the NHL to demand a long term deal between 3-4 million. Tatar is more than a suitable replacement.
