#2478225 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 28 January 2014 - 05:08 PM

Doubt Kenny trades Alfie after he ditched Ottawa for us .... If anything we should of went for jagr instead of Alfie

#2477985 Wings interested in parenteau ?

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 27 January 2014 - 11:35 PM

Link? The only thing on TFP regarding Parenteau is a dead link....
Also this probably belongs in the Trade Rumours forum.

Ya didn't wanna work .... Click on the rumors topic on top then click on read more where parenteau is mentioned and it then lists redwings Ottawa and montreal as teams interested

#2475021 Would you trade Jimmy for a top pairing dman?

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 20 January 2014 - 10:33 PM

I'm not gonna blame for our losses but he hasn't won anything yet .... Mrazek was a stud in the junior championships a stud for the griffins .... He's got a cool demeanour a great confidence in himself and has swag I could be proven wrong and I'd admit it I was wrong but for me theres no doubt in my mind this kid is a future star goalie ... He just needs more starts

They went into that season with Osgood #1, and Howard took over because Osgood struggled so much.  Howard wasn't planned as the #1, and he had more AHL time than Mrazek has had.

A lot more ahl time than mrazek .... And he's already way ahead than where jimmy was when he was 21

#2472827 2010-2011 drafts will be our savior

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 13 January 2014 - 06:59 PM

Just looking at the pasts drafts and my god , still early but those 2 drafts could end up saving us painful rebuilding years

We could of drafted "maybe" our future top 4 dmen In the 2010 draft alone in Ouellet sproul backman marchenko

Our potential (star goalie in my opinion ) future goalie mrazek

Then add jurco sheahan jarnkrok pulkkinen up front ... Wow

Just can't help to think (and hope) years down the road people will be once again in awe of the redwings draft history .... Can't wait to see these kids play

#2471928 Sheahan called up

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 10 January 2014 - 04:25 PM

Nice ... How about Callahan and Ferraro??? Those 2 are out of waiver options next year and we should see what they can bring .... I personally think Callahan would fit in real nice here right now and Ferraro has no future here only cause we got to many guys ahead of him

#2465283 Can't remember the last time we were this pathetic

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 16 December 2013 - 04:10 PM

the reason why we suck is cause we got so many injuries is totally bogus ... in october 9 out of 13 games we played we scored 2 goals or fewer , besides helm we were healthy 


we improved a bit in november but lost 7 in a row and now  we just lost 6 of 7 and every game this month so far minus the blown lead vs the flyers we scored less than 2 goals


these team has way too many 4th line players playing the same style 



im not saying we need enforcers but if we got a few guys whod just go around and hit the crap out of guys our team would look alot better than it does now

#2465179 Can't remember the last time we were this pathetic

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 15 December 2013 - 11:41 PM

the thing that blows my mind is how we keep putting samuelsson on the point on the 2nd ppl every time he plays , the guy ALWAYS turns the puck over on the ppl or takes a bad shot and we lose ppl time but yet hes always out there instead of putting smith or some other d , call up almquist for christ sake hed be awesome on the 2nd ppl unit


this teams living in the past man thats why i hated the drew miller signing , not cause he sucks but 3 years?? not when we got so many 4th liners and some ahl kids coming up ..... cleary was about to walk away but we bring him back cause his "heart was in detroit"


i just hope we dont get loyal again and sign him in the off season , some of these guys seriously need to go

#2465169 Can't remember the last time we were this pathetic

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 15 December 2013 - 10:52 PM

really frustrating time to be a redwings fan , i cant remember a time we been this bad , struggling so bad to  score goals and yet we  have so much talent on this team , seems lately were lucky if we score 2 goals in a game


And my personal opinion i been sayin for a year now we got too many 4th line type players(thats my nice way of saying garbage  players)


cleary samuelsson bertuzzi eaves tootoo miller and now glendening


7 guys id consider 4th liners (not including andersson who id keep) thats way too many , we should be bringing up sheahan/ferraro/callahan guys who are out of waivers to see what they can do instead of bringing up another guy who's reliable but cant create any offense(glendening)


were so pathetic right now we call up a 20 yr old kid in jurco whos playing amazing in the ahl to try and help us out of this disaster (id personally keep him down and let him dominate why chance it and ruin his progress)



anyways all this to say i hope they wake the F up cause i cant remember a time we been this bad   hope we turn this thing around



a bit off topic here but  im also a cowboys fan so hasnt been a good night or season for that matter

#2464098 Eaves and Glendening Recalled: Emmerton Sent Down

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 13 December 2013 - 04:29 PM

OMG they finally send emmerton back down but instead of calling up callahan/sheahan/ferraro up to see what they can do (since there out of waiver options next season) they call up glendening and eaves??!!


what the hell's up with all this glendening love , hes a reliable 4th line player, but those type of players are a dime a dozen , hes not gonna score and neither is eaves and detroit desperatly needs GOALS


6'2 sheahan could of contributed , speedy ferraro , agitating callahan ... alot of fans been asking for nyquist and tatar here since last season and there finally up and easily 2 of our best forwards ... this just frustrating

#2463464 Petr Mrazek called up

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 11 December 2013 - 03:15 PM

hope he plays some games i personally think hes our future #1 and gonna be an elite nhl goaltender ,lets hope we get to see him play some games




#2463339 Weiss

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 11 December 2013 - 12:34 AM

Well I was one of the very few who were against it. So many talked about how we will finish like 2-4 in the east. And Weiss will be more worth the money the fil and etc etc etc.

i remember getting sh*t on by alot of people for saying he was overrated when we signed him, i also didnt like the alfredsson signing just because the cap number was 5.5 for a 40 yr old player , i can live with the alfredsson signing cause its 1 year but even if we gave him say 4 million instead we'd have flexibility and be able to call up ahl players


ah well

also cause the cap number is going up 7 million i just hope holland doesnt feel like he has to go out just sign any joblo , like i said last summer rather keep the money till the right moment arrives ( a real star is available although it rarely happens now ) or let the kids play and keep money for the future raises (nyquist , tatar etc.. )

Sammy scratched



#2462497 I'd like to talk about this off-season/next season

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 09 December 2013 - 12:36 PM


Emmerton is the only option. They don't have salary cap space to make any other recalls unless it was in case of emergency or use of LTIR. Holland's fault. I'm sure Babs would like to have a look at a player that has a future here, but he just can't right now.

i just checked ... emmertons salary is 533k ... callahan is 566k , we cant afford 30gs on our current cap????? id ratcher much have callahan for 2-3 games than emmerton, he's not a star forward but he's an agitator who can also fight and hit and as of recently in the ahl where hes been scoring im sure he'd pop the odd goal in the nhl ... time to see the kids

#2462485 I'd like to talk about this off-season/next season

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 09 December 2013 - 11:07 AM

“We have some more down there. (Luke) Glendening could help us for sure, (Xavier) Ouellet and (Ryan) Sproul as well. It’s good to have players knocking on the door.”


why is babcock so in love glendening? i know hes a responsible player but he will never be more than a 4th liner, meanwhile we got sheahan ferraro and callahan who are out of waiver options after the season and theres no mention of them


we have to bring them up for a few games and test them out , i know emmerton is a veteran but they should seriously send him down now and call one of them up ... emmerton has no future ijn detroit

#2462217 12/7 GDT: Panthers 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 07 December 2013 - 09:35 PM


You're acting surprised that a team missing its top three puck-moving forwards is having trouble moving the puck.

we played the florida panthers and allowed 37 shots , even without dats zett and helm that should never happen
