#2488705 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 02 March 2014 - 10:17 PM

I'd like to add: our first-round pick should be in play. Or, if not in play, then at least "possibly available." If what I'm hearing is true and Kenny's categorically refusing to even consider moving our 1st...that's immensely stupid.
We're not the Sabres. We're not rebuilding. We're retooling (there's a difference), and we're doing so with a relatively deep prospect pool which has already given us Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan, and Jurco. And DeKeyser would've gone in the first round had he been drafted, so he's basically a free first-round pick.

Just because dekeyser was a free first round pick doesn't mean we need to just give away our pick now .... There's still a chance we don't get In the playoffs so it would be High pick for us .... If we trade it way it should be for non rental player

#2488569 Naming the New Arena

Posted by Mckinley25 on 02 March 2014 - 01:26 PM

Maybe if we all chip in they can call it letsgowings.com arena.

Instead of a statue of Howe or Yzerman they can rotate monthly a statue of which ever Wing we hate at the moment for vandalism purposes. Satisfies a lot of needs for Detroit.

If IKEA was smart, they would buy the naming rights.  

So, it would be called "Hockey-Arena Bjorn" ? This needs to happen.

Gordie Howe Arena. Take the statue from inside the Joe and place it outside. Probably won't be a hockey player, but if it were no better choice then Mr Hockey.

Doing play by play and color commentating is far more difficult than it seems. 


Which is why they should have kept Murphy around.  He was really coming into his own.  He was like the lovable goofball that you couldn't help but laugh at.  My two favorite Murphy moments...


1) Doing a pre-game spot on dollar hotdog night from the hotdog stand.  When they delivered his order he had SEVEN hotdogs.


2)  A couple of years ago when we played Nashville in the playoffs and Murph did his pregame spot while onstage in a Nashville music hall with full backup band.  Every time he made an important point the drummer crashed on the cymbals and Murph would pump his hammy fist in the air.

#2456633 What is Samuelsson's role?

Posted by T.Low on 22 November 2013 - 12:00 PM

Sammy was a good acquisition at the time. It certainly seems that two years and $2m/per would have made better sense. Or even 1yr.

There was no adjustment phase, as he's been a wing before obviously and therefore knows the systems.

A right-handed shot we needed for the power play point.

Swede background with Canadian light edge.

He's actually done well this year. I used to worry every time he got the puck, but now he is much more composed and makes pretty good passes and pretty good decisions. Certainly has more patience with the puck than Tafar for example.

He is a versatile depth signing. He can play third line grinder, be plugged into the second or even first-line in a pinch, and be plugged into fourth line minutes.

It wasn't a bad acquisition, it was just the contract itself that was poor.

He does provide the team with a guaranteed offsides call every other time he steps on the ice (I was going to end that comment with a smiley or an "lol", but it's just too darn aggrevating)

his role is to waste cap space and we'd succeed best benching him.

#2457535 Datsyuk concussion: To Return Tuesday

Posted by Hatcher#2 on 24 November 2013 - 04:08 AM

WTF is wrong with this team??? Their top player and arguably the best in the world gets elbowed in the head and not one sorry ass player does anything about it. I don't care if there is a suspension or not what i want to see is the team stand up for themselves and one another at the point when the incident happens, there is something fundamentally wrong with this team and their principles. Illitch should just relocate them to Sweden and let them play over there and Holland will be the happiest man alive. Im sorry to derail the thread but it infuriates me to watch this team and their complete lack of heart and toughness.

Does anyone know a possibilty to watch this in Europe ?

IMO they should get a company like ABC, NBC, CBC, ESPN, etc. to make these preview shows - a broadcaster who knows something about sports.


whats wrong with HBO?

I wonder if they'll show Cleary smoking weed on the show?  I know his eyes don't look like that from too much swimming.   :1eye:

Florida just needs to fold.
Seattle would welcome a team.

#2430185 Brendan Smith signs 2-year, $2.525m contract with Red Wings

Posted by Carman on 15 July 2013 - 03:28 PM

Good price and term, win for both sides. Smith should earn a much bigger contract in two years.
