#2539713 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Ya after watching the home opener, there is really a lot to be excited about going forward

#2539658 10/9 GDT : Bruins 1 at Red Wings 2.

On Ericsson giveway i was like: "oh no!!! last year is haunting us".... Then i've watch the effort which clearly was a Team effort. All in all wings looked good, even kindl wasn't so bad. Shame we didn't see much of nyquist, but maybe putting him with helm is a wish to keep speedy lines... although i'd have switched franzen with goose.

Why? Franzen wouldn't have scored any points, and we probably lose the game. I would have switched Abby and goose, but mule and z were perfect together.

2-1 wings. disney.com and goose with goals.

#2539119 Kindl on the block

Posted by Euro_Twins on 08 October 2014 - 04:55 PM

I don't disagree at all. I'm optimistic about Ouellet and I was not one of the ones going nuts about Kindl. But I'm always cautious with prospects, because the NHL is just a very different game and the lifestyle is also very different. You just never know how guys will respond until they get there.
And I think it's insane at this point that we're not getting our AHLers into the NHL sooner. I'm not betting on any of them to be our saviors, but like I said, we don't know one way or the other until they get here and prove themselves to be a keeper, trade bait, or a waiver candidate. In this era of NHL hockey, you need to start figuring that out sooner rather than later. And you stand to benefit far more from those that will work out by getting them on the team a bit earlier.
There's nothing wrong with waiting for a player to be "ripe," but it's pure insanity to wait for players to become "overripe" in today's NHL.

Ugh. I just moved to Nashville over the summer and am already getting dragged to Preds games. If Kindl lands here, I'm going to take it personally as some sort of cosmic joke.
And while I'm a die hard Wings fan, I've got to give some of these Preds fans some credit. Quite a few of them really know the game and are passionate about it and their team, despite the struggles and lack of post-season success. They've got good attitudes. Plenty are fans who go to games because it's something to do and tickets are oftentimes cheap if not free, but it's been a better experience talking hockey with some of them than I really expected.

It's worked pretty good so far.

#2539041 AO #8 Grants Fan's Request for Date

Posted by Euro_Twins on 08 October 2014 - 11:11 AM

My friend who is a capital fan posted this on Facebook. It was amazing for him to do that. Cute girl, man I wish yzerman or fedorov would have taken me on a man date when I was a kid, she will remember that as the best moments of her life for a long time, such a small thing for ovie to do, and yet such a huge thing for that girl. Hope for humanity restored!

#2538964 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 October 2014 - 07:52 PM

I think they're are more than a few teams that would add him, but his cap hit is what, 2.4m for the next few years?

He could be one of those guys teams think a change if scenery would help, and he was decent in stretches with the right partner, but who knows.
If Kenny gets something for him I'll be happy, but you got to think Holland will be trying to do something to get xo in here, especially given how hard babs was pulling for him and you don't wanna go into the contract talks with babs with him thinking he has almost no say in the line up.


Maybe babs should also ask for a proven goal scorer, and stipulate he will only re-sign if holland gets him a top pairing dman and a 40 goal scorer, and watch holland squirm MUAHAHAHAH

May the odds be ever in your favor.

#2538682 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 October 2014 - 05:19 AM

Lol we should dig up that thread when Weiss was signed. Everyone so happy and giddy except for the negative nancies(realist...or people who were RIGHT).

Seriously? The guy isn't even getting a chance to prove himself. You're basically trying to throw it in peoples faces that you were right about Weiss like it's a good thing to be right about.

#2538497 What did the preseason show us?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 06 October 2014 - 08:28 AM

It showed me much of what I already formed an opinion on....we would be just fine and probably even better without Franzen, Ericsson, Kindl, Quincey, Cleary, Gustavsson, Helm or Andersson.  A trade package of a couple of those players would get us a great RH top 4 defenseman...
It also showed me that the tie goes to the veteran still, despite what Babcock says....hence the reason Cleary is still here and Callahan is on waivers, same goes with Sproul and Marchenko while Kindl and Quincey are still here.  Thank goodness Nesty and X-Man are still up, but when Datsyuk gets back and when Alfie decides he wants to leech some money off of the Wings, the tie will go to the Swede. Goodbye Jurco and Nestrasil...

We need Ericsson. I also forgot that Callahan was the next great one. To be honest Callahan didn't really impress me, so I doubt care that much, but kindl, Quincey and Cleary being gone would be lovely.

Oh yay. Back to the legwand and jarnkrok trade. Oh I really missed kicking that horse

#2538433 10/4 Final Preseason GDT: Detroit Red Wings vs Boston Bruins

Posted by Euro_Twins on 05 October 2014 - 10:16 AM

They said the same thing about Vrbata and Neilsen yet they score at a 50% rate.

Datsyuk has 1 move, he just either goes forehand or backhand. Aside from last year when he was struggling through a knee injury he still scores close to 50%
