Abdelkader has been quiet lately I would like to see a change to get him going again. I propose this.



I like this a lot


Will be a tough game would be happy with a point.

If things go south I hope to see some Kronwalled action and intensity

#2634312 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by frankgrimes on 31 October 2015 - 07:12 AM

Just so we are clear. Most of you guys or girls, whatever gender you are behind your computer, are talking out of both sides of your mouths.
Some of you don't think they upgraded.
Some of you say they are still young.
Some of you say the team is old.
Some of you say it's only 8 games.
While some of you say certain players have missed large chunks of the season.
Kyle Quincey all of a sudden is a Red Wing fan favorite. What? Since when?
If you think Babcock only reached mediocrity, then why did we bring in a rookie who will most likely do worse behind the bench?
Are you guys going to games or just listening on the radio?
The team is pathetic. 
This is the same team as last year. Close to beating the eventually Eastern Conference Champs. Plus the addition of Brad Richards and Mike Green. If you don't like them, then lets talk about Holland. If you do, and you should, then you should realize we should be better. But lets be real here, they weren't lighting the NHL on fire (Richards and Green) when they were healthy. 
Go Wings Go. 

So why did we sign him? Are you mad at Holland?

He is better than NOT having him. Think who would be center. Oh yeah, it's happening now. And we suck even more. 

Appreciate the math. I didn't know that. Even though I used to work for the organization. 

Oh good god just Email Holland that you are unhappy with Blashill 8 games in and I'm sure he will fire him..hey if he doesn't Mr. I has an Email address too so maybe he will fire both of them to please a keyboard warrior.

Also speak for yourself, thanks.

So far there is only one guy who seems to be writing before thinking but that's your own fault. Some research would have saved you a lot of time Richards was supposed to be a 3 line center, Mike Green was demoted to the third pairing during his time in Washington.

Whether you like it or not this team is in transition and has been for quite some time now. Maybe missing the playoffs would kick of a real rebuild and a better chance at Matthews. If you went into this season with false expectations that's your own fault..btw. The Bolts are on a whole different level the captain rebuilt this team in 4 freaking years unreal

Do we agree if we don't make the playoffs, he should be fired?


No. Blashill has overtaken in team in transistion and like many have said in the off-season it will take time for him to implement his system and getting used to the coaching methods of other NHL coaches.

#2633980 Byfuglien - What would he cost?

Posted by frankgrimes on 29 October 2015 - 07:35 PM

The guys I'd want from Winnipeg are Scheifele (not going anywhere), Trouba or of course Wheeler who I think could be available if contract talks are going south.

#2633793 All Purpose "Ovechkin is Awesome" Thread

Posted by frankgrimes on 28 October 2015 - 02:49 PM

there is no debate Crosby is the best player in the world and can do more than just waiting to unload his onetimer. Ovechkin is one of the best goal scorers in the game but there certainly are better players not just Crosby..Toews , Stamkos, Tavares, Seguin, Benn and Getzlaf come to mind.

these 3 clowns are so bad typically Rogers show coaches corner you morons

Not a betting man but if roles were reversed a Wing would have had an in person hearing for running price but because it's vise versa the little frog gets away with it f****** bulls*** if that's the call that turned this game around it will be open season in every goalie this year

#2630238 MLSE signs sponsorship deal with Draftkings

Posted by frankgrimes on 13 October 2015 - 04:14 AM


Are you anti fantasy sports? Or are you upset that MLSE is getting involved with it?


I'm against the daily version of it because I think it has nothing to do with skill and is just a gambling loophole. I mean year long leagues with a one time payment are a different thing but Draftkings and Fanduel are operating in a very grey area.

#2628614 Dylan Larkin on opening night roster

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 October 2015 - 06:09 PM

The same way Mantha was "That Good" last year? or?...
I'm not saying he can't play in the NHL this year, I just don't think he should start the season in Detroit. I would much prefer to see him start the season down in Grand Rapids, and if he plays well enough and there are injuries down the middle in Detroit, then he should get his shot. I don't like the idea of an 18 year old kid, going from college, straight to the National Hockey League. My opinion.


Couldn't agree more just look at another team and some of their young guns are deemed ready but are sent back by Lamoriello and Babcock to even learn more. Don't get me wrong I'm extremely happy for Larkin he has worked his butt off and earned this chance but I think once the  season gets going it will be tough for him to keep up. The Crosby's and Bergeron's of the world in pre-season form are not the ones he is going to face night in and night out in the NHL. His talent level is awesome as is his performance but going straight to the NHL is an unreal beast for a 19 year old..not named Eichel or McDavid (both are going to take the NHL by storm).


Even if it's just temporally it would have made more sense to let him develop chemistry with Mantha and destroy the AHL and come up when he's fully ready to stay up for good and not get send down again.

#2628522 Dylan Larkin on opening night roster

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 October 2015 - 11:15 PM

I'm very happy for him, guy had such an amazing camp but on the same token I'm kinda sad in terms of (maybe) the Wings are rushing him. Pre-season is one thing but this week it's go time and would have prefered to see him center the Mantha line in GR. Anyhow I guess it's only temporally till Pasha is back having him center the 2 line would be a lot to ask out of  Larkin so soon  but you never know.


As far as him being the next face of the franchise I think it will be between Larkin & DannyD I mean when was the last time the 2 faces of this franchise were all from michigan and probably the best center and defender of the team in the future? That's so freaking cool, I may think Holland has lost his fire and question how his builds the team in a very softish way but him and the help of our perfect human really nailed the Dekeyser signing.

#2628492 Raffi Torres at it again.

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 October 2015 - 07:27 PM

about time it's pre season and he could have held back. Now he has 4 months to think about it.

#2628095 If Larkin forces his way to the team , what will we look like?

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 October 2015 - 04:07 AM

no, what I'm trying to say is that the pre season is a chance for young players to impress against mostly other peers and veterans that aren't going full speed.

I like most think Larkin has done that, yes I want him to bulk up signs be around 210 when he comes up. but more importantly would be developing chemistry with Mantha.

#2627947 If Larkin forces his way to the team , what will we look like?

Posted by frankgrimes on 02 October 2015 - 08:45 AM

It was more a basic example of how overrated the pre season and therefore the performance of these young kids is. Larkin is just an example.

The most important thing is that he seems to be on the right development track.

I'd say let him go to the AHL dominate there with Mantha and be the first call up.
