#2545678 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Posted by Echolalia on Yesterday, 10:57 AM

It's funny how whenever a player is about to come off IR and force Holland into some potentially tough roster decisions, another one conveniently gets injured.

I was not a big fan on the signing but I never expected this. I know all points and games count especially when a fringe team like the wings but, I'd rather see a 7-10 stint of straight games of him on the top six if he shows nothing it's time to move on and get someone else in his place. I'd much rather see a second line center with more jam physicality and nastiness than weiss

#2544859 Mantha getting closer.

Why not? he has done nothing so far, and hope mantha takes his spot sooner rather than later, or really any of our top prospects

In all fairness Tatar hasn't really done anything either, or Jurco. The team really isn't doing much offensively. With that said I also wouldn't mind seeing Mantha over Nestrasil. Though I don't know if they'd bring Mantha up to play 3rd line.

I'd like Jordan staal


Not me, he is under contract until 2023 with a cap hit of 6 million per year.

Smith barely contributes to the offense at all, he doesn't score goals and he's not on the PP. How exactly is he an offensive defenseman??


Thats not that unusual for a defenseman though. Last year Smith had 5 goals in 70 games, in comparison PK Subban had 10 goals in 82 games, Keith Yandle had 8 goals in 82 games. The Weber's and Karlsson's of the world are very rare. At the end of the day most defenseman dont score alot of goals. If they cant contribute with assists, move the puck, and get shots through from the blue line, offensively I'm happy.

Wings aren't going to hand the net to Mrazek . and Smith is the only solid offensive d-man? Kronwall would like to say something about that.

Holy crap don't look now but that Red Wings team is sitting 2nd in the Atlantic 2 behind those nasty Habs with only Ottawa having 2 games in hand but everyone even in games played

It's October.....

Anyone notice that the Penguins announcers kind of had some sour grapes after that loss? "They act like they won the Stanley Cup."

If anyone can upload with their audio that'd be great

Not saying he is but when the squad is paying him over 4 large per year, makes you wonder why he is just not playing.


Maybe because the coaching stuff expected more from him (including pre-season ?). ) It doesn't matter how much money a player is making if he doesn't perform Babcock won't play the guy, simple.

Filppula wanted out and I think TB will regret that deal. He's never had 2 back to back healthy productive seasons.

Weiss is useless - and what can they do about his contract?  Thought he would be hungry - but looked lost.  Not his first rodeo - no excuse - try at least.  like I said before; another Samuelsson contract - have a nice time riding the pine

It would be an incredible move if kindl is moved off the wings

#2538715 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by HockeytownRules19 on 07 October 2014 - 10:27 AM



Nestrasil on the second PP unit at practice. Ouellet on PK with Quincey.


Ouellet working the PK with Quincey. Nestrasil working on power play. Kindl and Lashoff join possible scratches Cleary, Weiss as PK fill-ins

This is Babs showing Kenny that he's put the money in the wrong places. 10million in cap space as healthy scratches on the first game of the season?

It's a big f u to Kenny

Weiss scratched while they hammer out details of his trade?
