Datysuk, who suffered separated right shoulder 10 days ago, seems to be passing and shooting well. Estimated to be out another 2-3 weeks.

Not too bad, so he will miss maybe the first two weeks, maybe only one week.

#2537902 Babcock quote about Jurco... Possible shot at Holland?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 October 2014 - 11:05 AM

It could be exactly face value. Babs wants him on the team, so if Holland is able to keep him there Babs wants him there.

You can't base expectations off last year unless your expectation is that everyone will miss 20-40 games. The talent level of this team is not a team that barely makes the playoffs as long as they're relatively healthy. If the younger guys take a step forward they'll be in the top 4 of the conference.

I think they would have been last year if not for injuries. That was what I predicted last year at the beginning of the year too

I watched a little of this game, and there is just something missing. They want Hockeytown to get all fired up for the Wings season starting, but there just is nothing new or exciting about it. And Dan Cleary is skating around out there wearing #17 and with an A on his sweater. I think I threw up in my mouth a little.

why? He got 12 minutes ice time on a team full of teenagers and he's an absolute warrior. The A doesn't concern me, he is a great leader and role model. If half our team had his work ethic on ice, we would win the cup every year. He shouldn't have been signed again cause of his lack of ability to play at such a high level anymore but the A couldn't have gone to anyone better on tonight's roster.

Mother of god.....I'm tired of posting these already....

Regular pre season stuff, more worrisome if it carries into the regular season.

I think it has something to do with practice...
Think about it: the Wings practice against the Wings - we aren't an overly physical team and in practice we would be even less physical than in a game. If you practice going to the dirty areas and into the corners over and over again in practice without any physical impact when you get to a game situation you do the same but get destroyed. I think our players are just generally not totally expecting huge impacts - look at Sproul, Datsyuk recently who were surprised by hits they typically wouldn't expect from practicing against a soft Wings team. 

Nyquist had a knee on knee collision. Should they start practicing knee on knee collisions in practice so they are ready?

I agree that we're a young team, and I by no means bemoan the fact that we're "old".  But, I think it's at least worth noting that while only a handful of guys are over 31, they're all our best players (with the exception of Cleary).  D, Z, Fran, Knonwall, Weiss all have VERY important spots on this team.  So I think the point could be made that while we're not old overall...the most important parts of our team are getting up there.

Which is why guys like Tatar, goose, Mantha(hopefully after he's healed), Smith , and jurco are on the team, to learn from our aging stars and take the reigns one day. We have a promising future even with the guys in the ahl

Weiss is 31, I said over 31. Kronwall......your right, I just forgot him..
Point is, the poster was criticizing us as an aging team. Yes, most fans would get rid of Franzen and Cleary if given the chance, but I don't think any would get rid of Datsyuk, Kronwall, or Zetterberg. Two players fans don't want, does not make a team "an aging team, nobody wants to play on"

I wasn't disagreeing with the point just correcting it. And technically Weiss would be over 31 cause he already turned 31, but that's just nitpicking by me. Either way we're a fairly young team, pretty much coming into its prime.

#2537223 Wings sign Defenseman Joe Hicketts to Entry Level Contract.

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 September 2014 - 07:15 PM

To be fair he's only 18, and men grow till the mid 20's--so he can still hit a growth spurt. He probably won't grow into a monster, but no reason he can't be 5'11 or 6' feet tall. 

Wait I'm 5'9" and I'm 25... Does that mean I can still grow??? :) please make it happen Santa!! I have 3 weeks till I'm 26 so it has to happen soon

#2537173 Who should get cut/traded by game 1 of the season?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 September 2014 - 01:22 PM

This question boils down to who can and will clear waivers... [Don't forget it works both ways and they need to be able to clear re-entry waivers as well]
22 of the 23-man roster listed by capgeek have to clear waivers to get assigned to GR. Callahan, Nestrasil, and Ferraro all also have to clear waivers to get sent down this year (I'm not sure if they would be subject to re-entry waivers if they get brought up this year). Jurco is the only 'regular' from last season who can get sent down without first clearing waivers.
I think taking that into consideration, the Wings are going to face some difficult decisions this season without making some trades or accepting some 'losses' to the waiver wire.
I had orginally been hopeful that Mantha would stick out of camp, but with the injury and the roster the way it is, I don't think there are going to be any 'surprises'.

I'm pretty sure there's no more 're entry waivers per the new cba

I hope so.....but this is just what most user here were in fear of.  Sure its not a conditioning thing, just a bad break, but so was when he got elbowed in the face and missed a lot of games last year, that was not a conditioning thing either.  Ericsson is already out, Alfie is out (even though he isn't signed, but if he were healthy, he would be signed.)  Barbie Doll Helm is living up to his reputation...again, not his fault, but a bad break, still he is a magnet of bad breaks, thus his reputation.  I won't give it too long until Franzen, Howard, Gustavsson and at least one more defenseman is out as well with "bad breaks."  That is just the way it went last season and so far we are well on our way to another injured season.  Not to even mention what happened to Mantha, he most likely wouldn't have started in Detroit, but it doesn't hurt us any less... I wish that we were all wrong in our fears over the summer, and I still do.  Its early, the injuries, although bad, don't seem to be season altering as of now, but I can just hear it now when Datsyuk is under-performing come January and its all due to the lingering shoulder injury....I hope not, but I am fearful everytime one of those players get hit....Z included...

I'm not saying we won't have any injuries. But you're picking at every little thing here. A broken nose won't stop helm from playing, a sore shoulder won't keep datsyuk out long. And mantha didn't even make the team yet. It's not even the regular season yet and everyone is in full on panic mode.

no...nobody saw this coming... Get ready for more from the same players.

He hit the boards the wrong way. It's not some conditioning thing, he didn't tweak his knee again or anything so he might miss a couple weeks, but I will bet you he's back by game one
