#2551163 11/22 GDT - Red Wings @ Maple Leafs - 7:00 PM EST

Posted by WingsAlways on Yesterday, 08:51 PM

The leafs thread on hfboards is complaining about tats goal, saying it looked like he kicked at polak as he goes down, then celebrates like he won thestanley cup

I missed the goal, did anyone see what happened?

 

What the hell would they know what winning the Stanley Cup is like?




#2550987 Lucic tasting some knuckles...

Posted by WingsAlways on Yesterday, 05:33 PM

Lucic likes to manhandle guys smaller than him then hide behind the refs when someone his own size stands up to him. The guys is a joke and got what he deserved, I say screw the code when it comes to someone who has ho moral code himself.

Nashville is routing Toronto 7-0 right now and Pens are up 4-0 on the Habs. Good night for shutouts.

I really want to knock the wind (for lack of a more explicit word) out of Columbus. It's been a long time coming.




#2549746 Forsberg in HOF, Fedorov equal?

Posted by WingsAlways on 18 November 2014 - 06:51 PM

Fedorov is far superior to Forsberg. 

 

Not many forwards can be placed on defense and excel. 




#2549484 11/16 GDT : Montreal Canadiens 4 at Red Wings 1

Posted by WingsAlways on 16 November 2014 - 09:37 PM

It's more than just a "bad game." It's a game you're playing a team that played a tough game the night before and the Wings are rested. Montreal is just clearly the better team. Not expecting much from the Wings this year anyway so I'm not surprised.

 

Yeah I could describe this game better but the profanity filter would go off. Actually I think we're a far better team than last year, this will be our 4th regulation loss. That's not too shabby and definitely no reason to want to "tank it". I agree we're lazy sometimes and Bab's line changes sometimes leave us scratching our heads but have some faith. It's not like we play like this every game. 




#2549004 11/14 GDT : Blackhawks 1 at Red Wings 4

Posted by WingsAlways on 14 November 2014 - 09:05 PM

Can't sit back and ride the lead, need to come out in the 3rd with a playoff mentality. I don't want to take this to OT or a shootout, Hawks don't get any points tonight.




#2534317 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by WingsAlways on 15 August 2014 - 01:23 PM

Best signing yet. Hollands offseason acquisition is himself. His deadline acquisition will be Babs.

 

I wonder if he gave himself a NTC...

I wouldn't mind it if he would stay healthy until the playoffs. 




#2529608 Well...at least we're not Philadelphia. Giroux Arrested.

Posted by WingsAlways on 02 July 2014 - 07:50 PM

 

No way can Giroux out party Patrick Kane.  I mean, he gave it a valiant effort, but there are drunken douchey assholes, and then there's this guy...

I bet Tatar could drink Kane under the table.




#2529458 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by WingsAlways on 02 July 2014 - 12:29 PM

You sir, are a grade A clown. Tank the season?? GTFO and go root for the Canucks or Flyers or someone.

 

^ This. 

 

We're not the Oilers, in fact we have something that's rare in this league and elsewhere anymore. Integrity. (and Datsyuk)




#2529120 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by WingsAlways on 01 July 2014 - 08:27 PM

You know, it really amazes me how quickly everyone seems to just want to fire KH and blow up the ship. And because of what exactly? We re-signed a guy who played well for us in the second half and has a proven track record of being a solid 3-4 D man. So we didn't sign any big name free agents, and? Did we really want Boyle here for 3 years? No. Orpik for 5 years and $5.5m? No. Niskanen for 7 years? I didn't. Stralman for 5 years? No. The list goes on and on. Guys who are cashing in on one or two good years (besides Boyle) and using the thin market to drive up their prices. It is frankly, a joke. The worst thing the wings could have done was to sign someone like that for a massive term which locks us in, blocking the path for 1 or 2 kids when they are ready either this season or next. 

 

Why is it that we are so quick to lambast something that we don't like, yet it takes 100 things to satisfy us? I mean, for crying out loud, we're not the Leafs. It's not like we haven't won a cup in the last 50 years. And also, it's not even like we're not competitive anymore. This team was a playoff team. Granted, the last 2 years have been touch and go, but 2 years ago we took the cup champs to 7 and had them on the ropes. In that 2012-13 roster, there were 26 players who were part of this seasons roster. 26!!!!!!!! And this season, most were injured, and yet somehow, due to some strong play of guys who will form the future of this team, we made it in. 

 

There is, quite clearly, a rebuild in progress at the moment. And it amazes me how people can't seem to get excited about the future prospects of Dekeyser, Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Jurco, Sproul, Marchenko, Ouellet, Mantha, Mrazek. Combined with a healthy D and Z and the other GOOD pieces we have on this team. So what's changed? Why has everyone become so despondent, when really, I think our time is coming right around the corner. Maybe not this year, but the year after for sure. If our kids continue trending upwards, we'll be right up there. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but to ignore the obvious positives that are emanating from this teams future and insist on throwing everything out in the trash just because we struck out on 1 day of the year is, in my eyes, nuts. 

 

Very well said my friend! 

 

July 1st is both exciting and agonizing. We fans look forward to this day all year long and after an early playoff exit, it seems to be a small light in the darkness. When we have such high expectations and then do nothing, emotions tend to run hot. The fact that we were dissed by players not wanting to come here made those emotions run hotter and Ken Holland becomes the primary target. It's nice to see some much needed positive energy and logic.

Welcome to Detroit, Andy Miele. It's good to see us getting bigger up front...oh wait.




#2517212 ECQF - Game 5 - Red Wings at Bruins - 3:00 PM EST

Posted by WingsAlways on 26 April 2014 - 05:07 PM

 

I've thought about it lately, and I think I want Mantha on the team straight out of camp. Let's just go all in with the youth, get them as much time with Z and D and maybe Alfie as possible.

 

I agree about Mantha. Alfie left his career to come to Detroit and win a cup, I think we need for give him another run. However I want to see some major changes in the offseason.

 

And I think Smith played his ass off this series.

I never thought I would be saying this, but I think I just turned into an interim Habs fan. f*** the Bruins.
