#2441005 10/2 GDT : Sabres 1 at Red Wings 2

Posted by BadgerBob on 02 October 2013 - 08:28 PM

Funny to see Weiss and Bert's toothless mugs next to each other. I love it!




#2428042 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by BadgerBob on 06 July 2013 - 02:06 PM

How old is Brunner? 27? Give him 8 disappointing years and he'll be worth 3.5 per year and will even get a no move clause.




#2424358 Red Wings select RW Anthony Mantha 20th Overall

Posted by BadgerBob on 01 July 2013 - 09:19 AM

I don't like this "questionable work ethics" thing, but certainly hope Wings scouts included this in their evaluation

and apparently thought this can be corrected.

 

Have him train with Chelios for an off season. His work ethic will change :)




#2421819 Hypothetical - Crosby soon to be a Wing. Who do you give up?

Posted by BadgerBob on 24 June 2013 - 05:48 PM

I'd rather be fired than ever see Cindy in a Wing's jersey.




#2418913 Pens potentially moving Malkin?

Posted by BadgerBob on 09 June 2013 - 07:13 PM

I know it's fun to think about, but Malkin won't be going anywhere. He's a Penguin for life, I can never see him ever leaving.

 

If Wayne Gretzky can be traded, anyone can.




#2415951 Z's hilarious reaction to Pierre

This is awesome! Can't stand Pierre, or anyone on NBC really. Except for JR.




#2415863 2013 Offseason Thread

Nyquist-Datsyuk-Horton

Tatar-Z-Clarkson

Mule-Helm-Brunner

Abby- Andy- Eaves

 

Tootoo

 

Same D 



I dont think Smith can.  But Nquist, Andy, and maybe even Brunner are able to

If we could get Clarkson AND Horton I think I'd have to change my shorts...I was so sick of watching our guys get pushed around by other teams. We need some guys that can get mean and still produce.




#2380289 Crosby out for remainder of season AND playoffs?

Posted by BadgerBob on 04 April 2013 - 03:36 PM

I don't wish injury on anyone, but I won't be upset if he isn't in the playoffs. I don't need to watch him whine and cry his way to another cup.

And there's no way that has anything to do with the best hockey player in the world being out in those two games.

 

I don't think he's even the best on his own team. I'd rather have Malkin. And I'd definitely rather have Datsyuk than Crosby.

"But hey, at least it wasn't a first-rounder for Kyle Quincey again."

 

:lol:

 

esteef

 

When I heard that trade last year I spit my beer out. This has to be the worst trade I've seen the Red Wings make.

I hope some of you read this in a few days and see how ridiculous you sound. Outside of trying to move White and maybe Filppula (because of the rumored salary demands), not much else makes sense. We're a middle of the pack team on the rebuild. You don't sacrifice prospect depth in this league, anymore. Not to be knocked out in the first or second round.

 

I'm totally fine with this team standing pat this year, because I'm come to the terms that the Red Wings will most likely not win the Cup this season. It is what it is.

 

I just wished Ken would have moved some of the guys that won't be returning and gotten something for them instead of just losing them in the off season. If they're going to leave the team might as well be compensated some how for their departure.




#2379089 time to trade filppula?

Posted by BadgerBob on 03 April 2013 - 12:21 AM

I say trade him now while we can get something for him rather than just let him walk away in the off season. If he wants $5M/year he's crazy. Pretty obvious we won't be winning the cup this year unless this team pulls a miracle so why not make the trade and let some younger guys get some experience.

This to me takes the cake from that Malik article: 

 

"The Red Wings are interested in adding a top-four defenseman or a top-six forward, but not at the expense of their first-round pick or any top prospects."

 

Sorry Ken, but you can't give someone a hand full of sh*t and expect a golden egg in return. If we aren't going to use the depth we have as trade bait to get a higher caliber player, then at least dump the old farts that are taking up space for developing the young talent. This season has just been frustrating.
