#2530424 What's best for Mantha?

Posted by nosyt612 on 07 July 2014 - 01:49 PM

Good point about Babcock...until he is gone, this team is stuck in a rut.  Legwand waived his NTC because he wanted to play here, but after what Babcock did to him, he bolted.  Babcock is the issue why no good UFA wants to come here...and its no secret why Canada is going in a different direction for their Olympic team next time.

The back to back Gold medals is a big underachievement.

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Mantha (if he wins it, we don't have a legit top 6, so it's open to take!)

Nyquist - Weiss - Alfredsson (I know this is Frazen's spot, but if Alfie re-signs, I prefer him here.)



...dang, we got too many forwards...what do we do with Miller/Abby/Glendening/Andersson/Helm? Not to mention Callahan and Ferraro...sheesh, no wonder we weren't really looking at UFA forward.

Start the year in GR and is the first call up for injuries.

#2528939 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Who cares? The other players went elsewhere. It's not like that money was gonna be spent elsewhere. I get being disappointed in not landing a big UFA today, but the amount of hate and overreacting going on in here is ridiculous. 

I personally would've rather seen kids from GR get their chance at the #5, and #6 spots on defense.

Man, I don't care if the guy's 42, 45, 58 1/2 - it's one less spot for Dan Cleary.

#2517335 Was Legwand worth it?

Jarnkrok was not our best prospect...Mantha is our best prospect. 

#2518321 Red Wings expect changes for 2014 - 2015

In an ideal world Ericsson would be on the 3rd pair with Marchenko and we pick up a top guy to pair with Dekeyeser.

they need to stop reproducing and produce in the playoff games.  :lol:


Seriously, best wishes to all, and this explains a lot that a couple of our remaining top players seem to have no idea what they're doing out there at times.

#2507013 Lightning sign GM Yzerman to contract extension

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 April 2014 - 04:30 PM

After the Legwand deal Holland needs to be canned, but I guess the dream of Stevie coming to replace him is a pipe dream now.
FYI since joining the Wings
Legwand: .56 ppg
Jarnkrok .75 ppg

Ya a whole 8 games nhl experience. Watch out here comes the next yzerman
Also legwand has 17 games and 10 points. Well see how many points jarnkrok gets in a full season before we decide we lost the next gretzky

#2500376 Backes on playing against Malkin and Crosby

Posted by frankgrimes on 24 March 2014 - 11:46 AM

Found a really nice quote on the NHL site:


,,..I don't want to give you all of my secrets, but if I was in a skill competition with those two guys I'm going to lose 100 times out of 100. Physical, hard, make them earn their ice. That's the way I play most nights, I'd like to think .."


the guy is the prototype of a blue collar hockeyplayer, beast and is giving out all each shift even if not the most talented player. God would he ever look good in a Winged Wheel

#2499555 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 23 March 2014 - 01:48 PM

I know "on pace for" stats are always a little iffy, but imagine if Nyquist played the whole year.  Even with occasional scoreless streaks, Nyquist could theoretically achieve 40 goal status over a full season.  In his first "full" year.

We have to sign him to an extension as soon as possible

People can say what they want about this trade, but Legwand is a huge part of this teams success

#2496353 Franzen calls out team

Posted by kipwinger on 18 March 2014 - 08:51 AM

if one thing has been made clear with these injuries, it's that tatar/nyquist are not players in the mold of datsyuk/zetterberg - they aren't the guys that are going to carry your team.  they're secondary players.


They're rookies!  Datsyuk and Zetterberg weren't players in the mold of Datsyuk/Zetterberg when they were rookies either. 


Zetterberg was runner up in rookie of the year voting his first year with 22 goals and 22 assists in 79 games, Datsyuk had a less impressive 11 goals and 24 assists in 70 games his rookie year.  Both Tatar AND Nyquist are on pace to beat those numbers in MANY fewer games.  Furthermore, neither Datsyuk nor Zetterberg were asked to do as much in their respective rookie campaigns.  They were both on teams LOADED with talent.


Maybe they will turn out to be that good, and likely they won't.  But to act as if their rookie years have been anything other than spectacular is absurd.

It's like the pot calling the kettle black...

You must not have been watching franzen playing this year...

#2496330 Franzen calls out team

Posted by thegerkin on 18 March 2014 - 01:51 AM

I think Franzen has been pretty good for most of the year.  He's been hitting and shooting and playing a good game.  He has an A now for a reason.  I think he's stepped up well.  If he played like this with Z and Pav, it would be amazing to see.


To be fair, Franzen is wearing the A due to attrition. However, I agree that he has stepped up his game and hopefully gets on his "playoff beast-mode" a few weeks early :)
