#2517418 A plea to Holland.

Posted by joesuffP on 26 April 2014 - 08:29 PM

Holland has signed Ian White, Kyle Quincey, Carlo Coliacovo, Brian Lashoff since Lidstrom, Rafalski and Stuart have left. That's sad. Just a complete failure. Who is he going to sign once Franzen, Datsyuk and Zetterberg leave. This really scares me. Holland hasn't made a single good deal in 3 years


#2514660 Bertuzzi in, Jurco out

Posted by WingedWheel91 on 24 April 2014 - 12:20 PM

So how does everyone feel about Todd Bertuzzi tonight?

 

WOW - are you guys kidding me? Have you not watched or understood our offensive struggles this entire series?

 

Between our constant turnovers, abysmal forecheck, and lack of any sort of net front presence (see our PP%) our team - for the first time in a long time - has looked VERY young. Quite simply, our roster in games 2/3 (w/o Alfreddson who does make a difference) cannot compete with the Bruins. I understand Jurco is a very quick and talented player, but quickness and talent wont translate into offensive success when your chasing the cycle around each shift. Bertuzzi immediately helps the forecheck, immediately helps the PP and most importantly provides a veteran presence to this line of youngsters.

 

I know he is not the saviour (I think we already know who that is) but I'm wondering why people who have watched this team play all series, are upset about this change. You can't remove any of the penalty killers and you aren't taking Legwand out... I hope Bert destroys Marchand tonight and finally earns us some respect (just count the cheapshots),

#2436097 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by number9 on 12 September 2013 - 10:43 AM

I have a ton of respect for any player who takes that big of pay cut (and on a short deal) to stay in Detroit.

Say what you will about the roster and cap situation, but Cleary is a one loyal Wing.




#2288198 WCQF Game Three GDT : Predators 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by HockeyCrazy3033 on 15 April 2012 - 04:02 PM

Just got back from the game.

Was so upset Franzen's goal got called back and I knew it'd bite us in the ass but whatever. Can't be too upset. Wings carried the play most of tonight aside from the first period where they were extremely sloppy and couldn't get anything going. Also, I don't get the hate and blame on Howie. Third goal he should have definitely had but he's been solid so far this series. Can't put it on him and Rinne is NOT as good as the 43 shots or so makes him look. That's what I see anyway.

Still going with my prediction of Wings winning in 6. I got no worries.

Kudos for showing up after a loss. It's not easy, and you get internet cool points for that.




i try to stay up beat after a preds loss,it is not easy when you have emontinal problems,preds can't blame this on anyone but themselves,their lucky this series is tied 1-1 instead of 2-0 wings.

******* losers. At least have some pride.

Flip the switch, kick the tires, light the fires, and let the octopi fly!

wow.. i'm already hoping he's head and shoulders above Emmerton.


Well if Sheahan isn't invisible, he's already better than Emmerton. I hope so too though. 4th line center has been a gaping hole all season and Abby is better at wing with Helm healthy.

Really cannot wait for puck drop! Love sitting in bed ready to watch some hockey. I sit in bed because it starts at 00:30 here :(

Without Pavel I think its a given the Canucks win this one as the Wings will struggle to average 2 goals a game without Pavel.

hard to argue with that.

I have a feeling Ty is done as a Wing :( Willing to bet we see MacDonald tonight and I'm sure they'll play well. Wonder if they spent Sunday golfing and watching the Superbowl instead of working on the PP.

I hope we have a great game for my friend that will be there.

Always say the Wings will win the game.
