Like someone on HF said, you could literally photoshop Abby pulling a piano on that play.

credit to Abdelkader for charging towards the cage....forced the D to stay with him and allowed Datsyuk to have more room to the outside to use the screen

#2510425 Would You Trade For Matt Greene's Rights?

Posted by Shinzaki on 18 April 2014 - 10:32 AM

I don't really care if Sproul and Oulett are 21 and 20...if they can play at the NHL level, they should be here...if they need more time in GR, that's fine, but if  Babcock and his staff think they're a better option than Kindl and Lashoff, bring them up and roll them out there.  I think Marchenko..assuming his ankle is 100%  is absolutely ready now and I would rather bring him up than overpay to keep Quincy..which given the thin FA market for Dmen is something we'd likely have to do.


BTW..I'm not a Quincey hater, I think he's been a decent 2nd/3rd pairing guy for much of his time here. I don't think the trade that brought him here was  a bad one, yeah we gave up a number one for him, but we got a couple of years of play from a top 6 Dman .  That's not a bad return.  I just don't think Quincey is worth the $5 mil or so someone else will throw at him.

And that is why you work for the Oilers.


I don't think that any of those older guys are the answer, even in the short term.  Boyle's play dropped off significantly this year, I've never been impressed with Zidlicky or Morris, and Timmonen is a small, 39-year-old left handed shooter.  I don't want anyone over the age of 35 signed, period.  Niskanen and maybe Gilbert on a shorter term deal are the only 2 I'd be really interested in, and I doubt Niskanen makes it to free agency.  With Sproul, Ouellet, and Marchenko, plus the lower tier prospects coming and Kronwall, Ericsson, and Dekeyser not going anywhere, and Smith finally settling down and still having upside they don't need to go out and do a lot defensively.

Sorry guys, but our 1st and Almqvist is not going to get us a top pair Dman. Would you make that trade if you were the other GM? Of course not.

At this time , EVERYONE was willing to trade dats for Stall



crazy! :scared:

#2510005 Round 1 Line Combinations

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 16 April 2014 - 11:22 AM

I thought Legwand has been great as a center, can anyone explain to me putting him on the 4th as 41's winger? Is it just to have a pure shutdown line or what?

Ya I believe it's to have a pure shutdown line, although I've thought that lines been excellent since being put together.

Agree with FLC, last several years this site has put out the absolute best I've ever found. That's why I came here today, in fact. Hopefully soon.

Matt does an amazing one for each round, it should be out in a few days so just keep an eye out for it.

#2508618 Play em or rest em?

Posted by frankgrimes on 11 April 2014 - 12:00 PM

Definitely should rest Kronwall, Alfie, Howard after tonights game. Dats needs to get in game shape and the kids should play unless they have any unknown public injuries


I would give Nyquist some rest, the guy played lights out and carried the team give him some well earned time off.

The only thing I disagree with is which dman gets promoted. I have my money on Marchenko. 

#2507168 4/8 GDT - Red Wings 4 at Sabres 2

Posted by VM1138 on 08 April 2014 - 11:01 AM

Yeah, get used to Abdelkader up there. It's playoff time and I have a feeling its going to stay that way.

#2507117 Lightning sign GM Yzerman to contract extension

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 08 April 2014 - 07:04 AM

Enough crying about the Jarnkrok trade.  There's no guarantee that he would have come in and scored points at the rate he was/is doing it in Nashville.  Different systems, different situations.  On that note, congrats to Yzerman.  He needs a few more years to allow his moves and picks to pan out in Tampa and to gain more experience at his position.

#2506983 Glendening signed to 3 year extension

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 07 April 2014 - 01:09 PM

If Callahan brought more to the table than Glendening, I'm sure it'd be Cally who'd be up in Detroit right now instead of Luke. He came up, grabbed a spot and didn't let go. He'll be in the lineup next season for sure.

#2506909 Glendening signed to 3 year extension

Posted by paulwoodsfan on 06 April 2014 - 08:18 PM

In today's NHL, every roster needs useful players who are cheap and provide roster flexibility. Glendening provides all of that. His less than $700k per year for three years means we will have more money to spend elsewhere and a guy who can pick up valuable minutes checking, winning d-zone faceoffs and killing penalties.
