Kenny would rather sign them in the offseason so he can offer them a NTC.

#2486089 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by msdos on 22 February 2014 - 12:50 AM

People seem to forget, besides the back injury, the guy will be 34 next season. Don't expect any stellar numbers, even if his back is better.

Disagree with this completely. He's been better these past two seasons than the previous 4 seasons before that. His points per game has increased and he was on his way to shattering his previous point total record this season had he not gone down with the injury in December. Zetterberg was making headlines mid season due to his point tally and at one point was closing in on Crosby; until the herniated disc occurred. The season numbers speak for themselves and last years run to the playoffs do as well.


The "C" on the jersey has brought us a new Henrik Zetterberg. He is no longer only a "euro twin", he's the leader/veteran of the one of the most successful franchises in NHL and he knows it. He gives it 120% night in and night out because he knows he HAS to. In fact, in one interview earlier this year, he mentioned that part of the reason why he had a good start this season was because he started his training earlier in the summer. That shows commitment and will. I guarantee you he will continue to excel as long as his back allows him to. He knows in his mind he has to continue the Yzerman/Lidstrom leadership in Detroit. 

#2483380 Wings go to Mexico

This went from awesome to confusing. First of all, was nick even there? Secondly what beer were they actually drinking? Third and most importantly, where's Cleary?


Cleary fell down walking up to the bar

#2483369 Wings go to Mexico

You think every time Smith tries to hand Abdelkader a beer he turns it over to Andersson instead?

Haha, I can't stop thinking about Red Wings beer drinking metaphors now. 


I bet Abdelkader works SUPER hard to get his beer open and then shoots it wide of his mouth when he finally tries to take a drink.

#2482285 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 07 February 2014 - 12:03 PM

before the Olympics start ill just suggest signing AK Bars Kazan top 2 D men (not happening I know) which would help us address the Fwd issue.

Yevgeni Medvedev and Ilya Nikulin, offer both 2 year deals. Let Quincey walk, use Smith and Kindl with a roster forward Andersson to get the top scoring forward we need. Split the saved $ with the release of these 4 players and give that to the 2 Russian D's. ie $4'100'000 each year for 2 years.

This will give us a 2 top D that could play from 1-4, so we could go with Kronwall & DeKeyser, Medvedev & Nikulin and Ericsson Lashoff/ Marchenko.

Just a thought, doubt it would happen as the Russian guys have never left their shores, maybe Pav could sweet talk them into coming over.

#2476303 Turning point!?!?!

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 23 January 2014 - 12:46 PM

soooo back to GR riley?

Exactly what I was thinking.  This team always has a glaring weakness in guys like Cleary and Tuzzi.  if we sent them down and kept the likes of Jurco and Sheahan up, this team could compete with anyone in the league.  Imagine this lineup with Dats and Alfie back with Tuzzi and Cleary not on board:







Now that's a turning point for the DRW.  When they ice the BEST lineup that they can.
