#2618164 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by BadgerBob on 01 July 2015 - 02:59 PM

About the perfect contract for Green. Will help our O a ton. Top 2 pairs are now Dekeyser-Green and Kronwall-Ericsson. Could do a lot worse. Still have KFQ and Smith for the 3rd pair. I see a trade coming. To many dmen.

 

I think I'd rather trade E and Kindl, give Smith another year or two to figure it out. 




#2617381 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Not surprised one bit, but still disappointing. Standing pat when making first round exits is not okay. All other teams are constantly aiming to improve any way they can. Wings have more prospects than they can keep, why not use some to bring in a quality player? More teams are passing the Wings up because they're willing to take chances and make moves. At least find someone to dump Weiss on. I'd even be happy with that and clearing space.

#2615986 Looking ahead to expansion draft ... If Vegas comes to the nhl etc

Posted by BadgerBob on 24 June 2015 - 08:01 PM

Expansion is such a silly idea when there's franchises in dire need of re-location.

 

EDIT - and IMHO - forget Vegas...Seattle (Coyotes), and Quebec City (Panthers) should be the 2 top destinations.

 

I'd agree with this. Vegas seems like a cheap gimmick and they're going to have some incredibly corny name too. 




#2609134 Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

Posted by BadgerBob on 20 May 2015 - 04:05 PM

I really liked that Kenny talked about not being happy about the early playoffs exits the past few years. For that reason he said that's why he didn't want to sign babs to more than 5 years which is an excellent point.

 

I also thought that was good reason for not upping the term of the offer. Especially when he said just making the playoffs isn't the goal. I hope maybe they can add some pieces to make the next coach's transition a little easier.




#2604816 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by BadgerBob on 30 April 2015 - 12:02 AM

If I'm them, I'd rather go play in worlds. Especially mrazek. That'd be more good experience for him.

 

BUT WE NEED A CALDER CUP TO HEAL OUR WOUNDS DAMN IT!




#2604813 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Posted by BadgerBob on 30 April 2015 - 12:00 AM

Cap numbers like 6 though no? ... Isn't he like 36? ... Rather get someone you get who's 6'4 and fast and hits .. Wouldn't be pissed at big joe coming but think we need more help at d and don't wanna give up good prospects for joe and I'd rather trade howard for a d

 

Howard+Ericsson for Burns++? I really like Burns, can play defense or wing, brings a physical game and puts pucks in the net. 0% chance it happens but it'd be nice.




#2604781 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Posted by BadgerBob on 29 April 2015 - 11:21 PM

Because he's a great player and seems like a decent guy? Because he does his job and gets under people's skin? Sure, he's immature and impulsive (Smith's disease), and sometimes he crosses the line. He's certainly not the only one who does.

So I agree. Go Habs Go!

 

I just find his dirty antics tiring. Especially when he looks so surprised and upset he's getting called for it. I'm not saying the guy isn't extremely talented, he is. Getting under people's skin is one thing, but crap like that slash the other day is just the tip of the ice berg that makes me not like him as a player. He reminds me a lot of Suh. Really dirty player, doesn't take responsibility for his cheap shots, extremely talented, seems like a nice guy off the ice. 

 

So I gotta root for the Lightning on this one.




#2604774 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Posted by BadgerBob on 29 April 2015 - 11:00 PM

If you trade Howard and improve the defense in front of Mrazek, it'll make Mrazek's job a lot easier, and can help his development without risking losing games due to rookie mistakes. I think it'd be best if we move Howard to improve other areas and sign a serviceable veteran to back him up.

Go Habs.

 

Barf. Why on earth would you root for that scum bag PK?




#2604664 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Posted by BadgerBob on 29 April 2015 - 10:06 PM

Package Howard with any combo choice of Weiss, Ericsson, Smith's rights, and Kindl for someone worth having. They're all dead weight and this team needs a serious fat trimming.




#2604631 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by BadgerBob on 29 April 2015 - 09:56 PM

What makes you think Babs is presumably packing up and leaving? And it's either him or Blashill. Blashill has earned it and put in his time to be next in line.


Blashill, with Lidstrom and Cleary Chelios as assistant coaches.  

 

Fixed that for you. Our team will be the best conditioned team in the league and he'll teach these kids how to play with a nasty side.




#2596438 Oilers win the Draft Lottery

Posted by BadgerBob on 18 April 2015 - 07:49 PM

Was really hoping the Coyotes would get the pick. I'd like to see Doan get a shot at the cup before he has to retire.




#2587684 3/31 GDT : Senators 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Posted by BadgerBob on 31 March 2015 - 09:35 PM

The same people who are praising Mrazek would have been ripping on Howard for letting in the tying goal, complaining that he got his glove on it, should've stopped it.  It isn't that Mrazek lost in the shootout, it's that he looked totally clueless out there when the Wings actually put 2 on the board.  We don't know how Howard would have played tonight. 

 

If they played that sloppy in front of Howard this game wouldn't have even had an OT.




#2574618 Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

Posted by BadgerBob on 24 February 2015 - 11:50 PM

 How bout trading Jimmy and have a Gus/Mrazek tandem? jk.

 

If he fetches us a good defender I wouldn't be upset about this.
