#2674430 This hits the nail on the head......

Oh my god Holland really said this? He's making it too easy for us to rip on him here. What a disappointing, yet truthful read.

I would've much preferred "The House that Cleary Built" or instead of "Bell Tire Center" maybe "Kicked The Tires Center."

#2674174 The Missed Chances: '03, '04, '06

The name Talbot will always haunt my dreams after 09. That being said, that 09 team is miles better than this one now. I miss those days. I really miss that 97-98 team. A whole lotta talent mixed with a whole lotta bruising coupled with a chip on their shoulders. That team had a lot to prove and they did it back to back. I guess you can say those losses stung but I remember the Devils Cup sweep and our amazing year in 96 only to be stopped by the scummy Avalanche and those really pissed me off. That 02 team was stacked though. Can't win them all I used to tell myself. Good times. Now it hurts that we barely squeak in and are out in a round every year.

Wondering if enough tires have been kicked yet.

Cleary - Cleary - Cleary

Cleary - Cleary - Cleary

Kick the tires and I like our team.

Howard was absolute trash on that goal. Absolutely pathetic. I couldn't make him look that bad in the video game.

The ice must be bad tonight that's the second Wing I see fall.

No that was just Dan Cleary. He forgot to tie his laces again.

We might be the most inconsistent team in the history of the NHL. Only thing is now there's no room for any losing and yet we continue to do it in embarrassing fashion. When we do win, it's pretty much by one goal too.

We just finally aren't able to make the playoffs. Might just be what we need anyways. We are not a feared team. First Round exit every year regardless. Maybe we can make some big changes because it's hard to watch them not put up a fight with the season on the line. I think the defense stinks and the offense, with all that talent, isn't that much better.

Hank should be annoyed. He's been nothing short of hideous. Let's regroup and beat a last place team like we are supposed to. Go Wings!

We look like one of the weaker teams in the league so far. Disappointing start to the season. No urgency and getting outshot like every game. No puck possession. Hope they fix things soon.

I hope Toews and Kane get herpes and numerous, violent bouts of irritable bowel syndrome. Congrats to the Hawks who have assembled one hell of a team though.

God I kinda miss playing these teams. Can't stand them both. I think the Ducks are due and I think they make the Cup and then lose out to the Rangers.

#2606573 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by GoWings! on 07 May 2015 - 01:39 PM

I'd definitely like the following things:
1. Babcock moving on to a situation that fits him and the Red Wings better. I feel we had those Cups in 07, 09 and yes...even 2013 with just a little more urgency and fire we should've gotten it done. Not saying Babs was a bad coach but I just can't fathom how it's possible to constantly let teams back into a series we should've already won. Babs doesn't have a good track record in Game 7s. I'm not big on the adjustments he makes(or doesn't make) and I really feel he is a bit overrated. That being said, I believe he can flourish with the right group of players. Just not this group.

2. Cleary and Franzen need to retire. We would have no Cup since 02 if not for Franzen and Cleary was a solid role player but this isn't 08-09 anymore. Time to move on.

3. For the love of God get a real first pairing defenseman. A guy that can score and actually block shots is what I would love to see.

4. Please get a bona-fide scoring, front net presence. Dude that can crash the net. A good enough player that can allow us to drop Abby and Helm down a few lines where they truly belong.
