#2521955 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by number9 on 28 May 2014 - 11:45 AM

If there is an upgrade at forward available that makes sense, you definitely do it, but it shouldn't be anywhere close to a priority in the offseason. The main priority needs to be on the back end. The reason we were so average on offense last year is because of two things. First of all, we lost a crazy amount of man games up front to key players (Zetterberg (37), Datsyuk (37), Franzen (28), Nyquist (25) and Weiss (56)) That's a huge chunk of time to 5 of our top forwards. Secondly, our lack of quality puck movers on the back end also effected our offensive numbers. With a healthy group of forwards and an upgrade or two on the back end I think we will be right in the thick of things.


I swear if I see one NTC by ken this summer I will lose my freaking mind

#2504121 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by T.Low on 31 March 2014 - 11:17 AM

After the Calder Cup run and last night, Gudas is already sick of Nyquist. He's thinking, "Crap, this is what I've got to look forward to for the rest of my career?"

Speaking of Gudas and last night, we really do need a (younger) Bertuzzi type on his line. Guys are going to run Gus and try to make his life hell.


#2480455 What's wrong with Pasha? (Mod warning post #57)

Datsyuk has given enough to us that he deserves to do what he can to be healthy.
Whether that means sitting out wings games so he won't come back too much worse than he was after is fine.
Hell be here for three years after this year.
I trust hell do whats right, and honestly he's one of the best players and people to ever play the game.
I'd support him through whatever.

@Bill_Roose: Coach Mike Babcock has decided to put Tomas Jurco on the #RedWings' top line tonight with @Datsyuk13 and @DAlfredsson11.

What is this witchcraft

Okay, I know we have a lot of injuries but what is with that 2nd PP unit? How many times do they have to consistently get zero time in the offensive zone for some changes to be made. It boggles the mind why Smith is not getting power play time. Does Babs want him to stop being an offensive defensemen? Sammy is a forward with a good shot who likes to shoot. Let's play him as far away from the goal as possible so his wrist shot is a non factor where he can be a liability defensively. Then he blames Sammy and scratches him. The PP sucks because he thinks Datsyuk=Nyquist, Alfie=Sammy, Kronwall=Kindl. This is just one of the glaring mistakes Babs is making. The lines are complete garbage every night. He just keeps beating a dead horse
 
I just pray there are some scratches and some people are called up from GR. Throw somebody in and see if they can handle it. 

Kindl and Sammy on the point is disgusting. Nyquist makes mostly good things with the puck but both him and Tatar have been guilty of trying too many difficult plays that get broken up. Cleary of course adds nothing and is great at giving the puck to someone who is covered by two guys.

Definitely agree Smith needs to get a chance. He's got good instincts and I even think he could be good at carrying the puck into the offensive zone and establishing pressure.

We also need Weiss to find his game so he can center that 2nd unit. Until then I think Helm should do it.

#2373046 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

Posted by Jesusberg on 24 March 2013 - 05:03 PM

The vibe I'm getting is that he'll definitely sign with the Red Wings in the next few days. Also, I know a lot of people are pretty excited about the kid here, but I hope no one expects him to put up a ton of points, or be super flashy off the bat. Maybe eventually he develops into that role, but from what I've seen (and heard second hand) he's a really quiet type of player who does all the little things right.

He's been touted as a Brad Stuart type of player, and that's what the Red Wings really need, imo. I'm pretty pumped to get him myself, but I feel like I know what to expect out of him (all around solid play).

#2364681 if we can find a couple of power forwards.....

Posted by LeftWinger on 04 March 2013 - 11:10 AM

You mean Jiri 15 points in 17 games now that he is finally getting some ice-time Hudler?

 

Yes.  Glad he is doing well.  As long as he is doing well somewhere else.  He f***ed the Wings over in 2009 and I have hated him ever since.  This is a team, not an individual.  Holland offered him $3.5M which was way overpayment and he opted for arbitration because he wanted more...then he left for Russia. I have no room on my team for individuals, so long Hudler, I hope you score 50 goals, just don't EVER try to put on the Wings sweater EVER again...




#2329613 Jimmy D Speaks out on Lockout, fined $250k

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 21 September 2012 - 01:54 PM

I'm cattle....you're cattle....the players are cattle....the owners have a nice ranch....Gary Bettman is a sheep f***er. Jimmy D has WAY too much respect for the main guy responsible for bankrupt teams being a part of the league and his smug **** attitude is NEVER gonna fly with the fans. Some of the article made perfect sense, but dissing Ron McLean for having the balls to call out issues with the game and calling the players cattle is not only bad for the NHL, but looks bad on the Wings organization when one of their leaders starts sounding like a Nazi General towards the players.

This entire lockout has been a pissing contest between the NHL and NHLPA and now the owners and NHL team executives are chiming in with their hate mongering......great! Can't wait to see the 2005 lockout Stanley Cup Champion repeat...


#2314612 Zach Parise agrees to 13-year, $98-mil deal with Wild

Posted by cusimano_brothers on 04 July 2012 - 12:01 PM


As NHL.com’s Dave Lozo put it this morning before it happened:

The Wild closed 15-29-8 last season and haven’t made the playoffs in 4 years. This would be hockey’s equivalent of Heidi Klum marrying Seal.

...which is exactly why i did not reply to him. he tells me to go back to NHL13 and completely misses the valid point i made in which the Wings have won the most cups in the last 22 years. I hope Granlund goes to the KHL and Coyle requests a trade. Or i guess the Wild's prospects futures are pretty certain.


The Wild are the hottest thing in the league right now. If Edmonton is teaching us anything right now it's that having a handful of elite young prospects will turn your franchise right around!
