#2264994 2/28 GDT : Red Wings 5 at Blue Jackets 2

The way I see it, the Wings could have won 10-0 and dominated the entire game a sft would have discredited it for being Colombus

Kidding about what? You really think our roster is going to be better next year when Nick retires and Dats gets hurt again?


Oh, Lidstrom is retiring next year? Please send me the link to the article, I'd love to read that

Franzen with an effort?

We don't look real sharp...seems like there is 3 BJs around the passer...then 3 BJs around the the Wing getting the pass. Pass and skating angles look a little off. Surprised we are tied.

So is this what things will be like when Lids and Dats are gone?


I really hope you are kidding. By that time we will have a very different roster with our top prospects up and having a few years experience and free agent signings


#2264379 Brendan Smith watch thread

I don't expect much from him. I've heard this kind of hype before and most of the time it doesn't pan out (Grigorenko comes to mind).

I think he will be nervous and will be pushed around by the NHL forwards he plays against. He may tear it up in GR, but he is playing the cream of the crop of scrubs there. This is the NHL and if anyone thinks he is going to outplay Ericsson (who I really wanted to be replaced with Commodore when I heard he was signed, but alas...) they may be in for a disappointment.

But, hopefully I'm wrong and he goes out and does a Scott Stevens impression every night.


He's been up before and he's done pretty well

Holland failed today. He said over the summer that he wasn't going after big UFA's because he wanted to keep the cap for the trade deadline. Everyone on here said, no biggie that he didn't sign nobody now he can address our issues at the trade deadline. No here is the deadline, he failed to address our issues. Even the guys he targeted did not address our issues. Quincey does not address our issues. Now Holland is saying as well as you guys, he will adress our issues over the summer, which is what we heard last year at this time when no trades were made and then what happened over the summer? Exactly....

This team will not win the Cup. It is too inconsistent. Datsyuk can't do everything for you. Off season will come (way too soon) and Holland will be more focused on overpaying Lidstrom & Hudler (guarnatee he gives Lidstrom over $6M again and Hudler at least $4M) he won't even sniff Parise or Suter. So here is our team next season...

CAPGEEK.COM CAP CALCULATOR

FORWARDS
Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Johan Franzen ($3.954m)
Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Jiri Hudler ($4.275m)
Daniel Cleary ($2.800m) / Darren Helm ($1.250m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m)
Drew Miller ($0.837m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.000m) / Cory Emmerton ($0.533m)
Jan Mursak ($0.550m)

DEFENSEMEN
Nicklas Lidstrom ($6.200m) / Ian White ($2.875m)
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Brendan Smith ($0.875m) / Kyle Quincey ($4.000m)
Jakub Kindl ($0.883m)

GOALTENDERS
Jimmy Howard ($2.250m) / Joey MacDonald ($0.550m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $59,892,044; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $4,407,956

he'll keep the $4.4M for help at the deadline again in 2013 :hysterical:


Today was Strike 1 for Holland, he will say he wants to improve on draft day that will be Strike 2, then he will yap about July 1st. Strike 3. EVERY YEAR!


Yeah! It's Holland's fault for not knowing everyone would be way overpriced at the deadline! Why not give up te future for one, unguaranteed run at the Cup?

Even if we don't win it this year there's an offseason with good cap space and Stuart is most likely gone and Holmstrom may be gone. I see Lidstrom coming back but it will definitely be his last year. There's plenty of money to go for some good free agents and we didn't get rid of any good prospects.

It's way too quiet.


It's a seller's market so everyone is trying to get rid of their big pieces for a lot more than they're worth and the buyers a smarter than that.

Dammit, I'm agnostic and don't even believe in that kind of "they're still with you and keeping an eye on you" but dammit if these stories don't get me

Did you know? From February 7, 2008 to February 29, 2008 the Red Wings won only one game of the eleven games they played? We all know what happened in June that year right?


#2262525 2/25 GDT : Avalanche 4 at Red Wings 3

Posted by Jeff6851 on 25 February 2012 - 07:21 PM

Our top 6 is so sick without pavs


That and Franzen is pretty much useless, Bertuzzi only plays as well as he has with Dats and Z isn't showing the spark he has. Cleary doesn't belong on the second line either.

"BOOM! The Streak is over. Statement win."


"The streak is over."


"YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" SUCK A DICK, DEAD WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SUCK ON OUR RIGHTEOUS CANUCKS DICKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! F*** YOU *******!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"oh man what a hell of a game. i havent celebrated a win that much since the playoffs."

"I am so excited right now it's not even funny. I definitely celebrated hard on Burrows' goal. "

"Eat it, f***ers!"

"Many people believe it because we kick their asses. Great game and glad we got to end the Wings streak. Hate away, just means we're better than you!!!!!!!! "


Absolute worst fanbase ever for the most classless team ever


#2260837 Datsyuk out at least 2 weeks

Once he gets back are we sending Z to get his back checked? Then Mule for his motivation gland?
