#2437225 Preseason Game #1: First Impressions

Posted by The Greek on 17 September 2013 - 05:01 PM

 
I think he's totally lacking in confidence at the NHL level. He was very highly touted as a prospect, so there's a lot of pressure on him to succeed. His best stretch so far was his stint in 2012; he wasn't really expected to excel at that time, as he was only a call-up, and there was the extra comfort blanket of having Lidstrom around. Now eyes and pressure are on him and he needs to be good, and I think that weighs on him substantially.


I think keeping smith in the AHL for the 11-12 season is shaping up to be a major blunder. A full season of development, with lids as a partner, would have been excellent for smiths development.


#2436517 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Crosby would still be in the minors had he been drafted by the Wings.


No, he would be on the third line, assigned to a defensive-forward role. Meanwhile, cleary would be on the top line with pav and z.


#2436270 Samuelsson - is there any WAY in hell we can get rid of this guy? whos

Posted by The Greek on 12 September 2013 - 03:27 PM

You can't even say hindsight is 20/20, in this case. Everyone knew Sammy's deal would bite us in the ass.


#2436264 So....did Cleary just take Tatar's spot?

I don't disagree with you, but that is the dumbestf****** thing I can possibly read.
 
That is the point we are at with Babcock and Holland.

I ready said it in the signing thread, this team has turned into their personal social club.

Not much when it's common knowledge you have to trim your roster. 


Exactly, everyone in the NHL knows our plight. Kenny has put himself in a very weak position for future negotiations.

I don't think I've seen brunner's name within the last 20 posts.


#2431035 Red Wings select RW Anthony Mantha 20th Overall

Mantha is lazy and he sucks!


You're the first.

#2428100 Jim Nill takes Red Wings’ director of amateur scouting to Dallas

Posted by The Greek on 06 July 2013 - 03:36 PM

I'm not too worried. It seems like our euro scouts have vastly outperformed our NA scouts.


#2428040 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by The Greek on 06 July 2013 - 01:56 PM

So Sammy is worth 3 mil, but Brunner is not.

Anyone can be a #1 center, the only thing that matters is chemistry with line mates.


According to your logic the wings should just signs friends and I, instant top line.


#2420143 3 1sts for 1st Overall?

Posted by The Greek on 16 June 2013 - 03:31 AM

Stupid offer by Calgary...can't believe the Avs were so arrogant as to not take it. Avs need to reload....would have been a steal. 


It's like they're shooting stupidity at each other.


#2418504 Mike Babcock Chainsaw Commercial

Posted by The Greek on 08 June 2013 - 12:23 AM

I'm kind of disAppointed. I was expecting a video of Babcock wearing a lumberjack style flannel shirt while decimating a whole forest.


#2415772 WCSF Game 7 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 2 OT (CHI wins series, 4-3)

Posted by The Greek on 29 May 2013 - 10:34 PM

And its times like these I pick you up and say I cant wait to cheer for the Wings with you next year. Keep your chin up. This team is rebuilding FAST on the fly. The league has definitely taken notice.


But.... It just hurts so bad.

It's times like these that I question the logic of being a fan. The disappointments seem to far outweigh the good times. I don't mean this as an indictment on the wings, just sports fandom in general. I'm only rooting for the Harlem globetrotters from now on.

They thought they had this in the bag lol.  They looked so confused leaving the ice.
 
Hey, Hawks?
 
WE'RE NOT THAT DRUNK!!
