In Topic: Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

17 August 2014 - 02:30 PM

I think it will be a tough year to determine but I think we will finish 5th in the east what do you guys think the starting lineups will be?



Z Dats  Alfie


Franzen Weiss Goose


Tatar Shehan  Jurco/Abby


Miller Helm  Cleary


Kronwall Big E


Smith   DD


Q  Kindl








that's my guess not a dominating lineup especially seeing cleary in there but not to bad considering we didn't have Weiss half the season ill be interested to see how he franzen and goose fair

The Wings are missing out on free agents maybe, but could you really say that any of those guys they targeted since Suter have been essential? If anything, missing out is helping to further the future of this team quicker, by allowing what we saw last season - guys like Jurco, Sheahan, Nyquist and Tatar have emerged as legitimate NHLers. 


Prospects will undoubtedly be moved when the Wings feel the need is there, and when they feel they are absolutely ready to do something that will put them either very close or over the top. I don't feel that we necessarily need to make a trade right now, other than to erase Kindl from the roster to allow for Marchenko/Sproul or Ouellet to begin the year with the big club. What this team needs most right now is to get its top players healthy for 90% of the season, and have further growth from the young guys who were such a big part of the team last season. 

Once that happens (and I firmly believe it will), then we all will have a better view of precisely what the Wings have and how good they could be. After that, something will happen to strengthen this team. All it is is patience. And in the trigger happy world that is the NHL, patience can be a virtue. 


I don't think any of us would be sitting here moaning about the Jarnkrok trade still if we'd gone on a deeper playoff run. But so what? This has been battered to death so can we just forget about it? 

without that trade though would we have made the p/o ?

I think its fair to say it could go either way with what has transpired the last few years truth is a lot of ppl said we would finish 2nd in the atlantic and that was after we acquired Weiss and Alfie but only because they thought we had a good core and superb goaltending Howie was bad last year but can you really blame him or the D? same with Weiss Injury and Z and D along with everyone else that got hurt if we had a complete team most of the year no major flaws I think we could flirt with the top of the Division every year is rouellete you don't know what your going to get you could get an off year by Towes and Kane a Hot streak by Glendening and a Howard that is a Hasek it all depends on how the team  adapts no matter what I will support them weather they go 82-0 or 0-82 but in the end it all comes down to how everyone performs I think we see a  red wings team that has something to prove and we do come out hot

If Dan Daniel Danny Cleary returns and Anthony Mantha starts the season in GR, the whole world can go get bent.

if we don't make a trade and we do resign alfie I can see the team looking exactly the same if alfie retires than it could come down to Jurco,Pulkiken or Mantha depending on what he does In camp and preseason but I doubt he comes up this year baring injuries to everyone I see a couple ahead of him

My god, this place has gotten so bad that we are talking about trading Z and D now?



I hear you there is not a player on this planet I would trade those two for not 1 in the long run I want to say that z and d where wings for life never once giving up on the potential for our young core to spring to life and show a lot of the naysayers that we can possibly do wonders with them
