#2536057 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

Posted by Euro_Twins on 12 September 2014 - 11:08 AM

I'm not really one to bash the Quincey signing.  As others have said recently, he's not as bad as he's made out to be.  That said, this made me LOL. 
"The Red Wings lack of a high-profile free agent signing in the offseason has been highly discussed in the weeks following July 1, but the absence of a big move could be a move in itself.
I think its a big positive, defenseman Kyle Quincey said. We have a structure and a system that we know inside and out, and game one we know each other, we know exactly what to expect. We know the system, so were going to hit the ground running.
You don't say?  Kyle Quincey thinks the Red Wings failure to replace him, which subsequently ended in his getting re-signed (with a raise), is a "big positive".  No s***. 

Next stop on the obvious express is thank my lucky stars town located in the heart of the state, dodged a huge bullet. This is your stop Kyle

#2536028 Ericsson and Alfredsson not 100%

Can't you read? He's an amateur *finger.* he points at stuff, and touches things, and picks noses. Just not professionally.

Finger, wrist injuries are worrysome remember the Crosby situation ? 4 days non stop news about surgery ?

Crosby could stub his toe in the off-season while on vacation in Jamaica and it would be front page news on nhl.com lol

#2535860 Jonas Gustavsson - Monsters Hall of Fame new mask

I second that. Hockey was play by men in those days now we have franzinas and crosbies

If in 10 years time all the players are wearing some new technology that gives them even better protection that hasn't been invented yet, would that make all current players men and all future players sissies?

They keep recycling the same teams over and over. It's getting old.

#2535787 Nice article on Mantha

Posted by Euro_Twins on 08 September 2014 - 10:24 PM

Anyone else think it will be good for Mantha to learn from Jurco in the minors? One over-hyped prospect to another...


if only nyquist or tatar were still in the minors, that way we could have an over hyped over riped party!!! whoop whoop!! :lol:


#2535729 Detroit offers D Raphael Diaz tryout

Posted by Euro_Twins on 08 September 2014 - 11:20 AM

I'll give you Alfredsson and Weiss but it's not like there was a huge bidding war for them. As far as I remember, for both those players, only us and one other team were even interested. DeKeyser is a hometown boy so no points on that on and I'm too unfamiliar with Nosek to even comment on him. 
All I know is that it feels like for the last 5 years or so, players are always taking another team over us. I mean, do you simply refuse to acknowledge the fact we struck out on every single player we went after this season (and there were a LOT of them)?

You put no stock in dd coming because he grew up in Michigan yet you talk about free agents we missed out on who all went to their hometown or to play with friends? It's either one or the other, you either put stock in hometown guys coming over or you don't, if you don't then you have to discredit everyone we missed out on pretty much.

Dekeyser will be locked up long term, just depends on when; Wings Brass basically know is is the 2nd best d man on the team behind Kronwall, if not the best, and due to the teams current situation with lack of stability at D, they cannot afford to let him walk.

Definitely not better than kronwall, and it's up for debate if he's even Ericsson level quite yet. But he's definitely going to be a top pair guy soon.

How can you hate the Drake? Everyone loves the Drake. It's those quiet talkers you have to watch out for.

High talkers, low talkers, close talkers. It's the re-gifters that you really need to watch out for!

#2535492 Howie's ready to go

Half the teams in this league wish they had Howard *perspective*

I know Chicago fans that would rather have Howard. Not kidding

Some people are saying andersson is better than disney.com. That is nonsense. Andersson can't shut down top lines and frustrate an entire team the way disney.com does, to me he is worth keeping on the fourth line just because he aggravates people. 4th liners shouldn't be expected to go out and score a bunch of goals. It's a checking line for a reason. He works hard, plays gritty and throws people off their game.

The only real playoff success the Wings had since 2009 was when Howard had his only good playoffs, two years ago.
When he's been, pardon the word "average", this team has been nothing special in the playoffs.  We don't have enough firepower or talent to succeed without a hot goalie.  I hope he steps up this season.   

Even the best goalie in the league can't win a cup for you without firepower.

#2535378 potential team names for las vegas!

Posted by Euro_Twins on 02 September 2014 - 01:06 PM

They should probably pick the name based on the most likely Canadian market the team will move to after being a financial disaster for years.

I edit my original statement. I don't want to gossip like that. I think the trainers guard may have been down because we were mostly discussing his Ice Bucket Challenge and my ALS.

If you edit my quote out of your post, I'll put up a vid of the trainer I was talking to working the Wings. :-)

Because you asked so nicely I deleted it.
