#2528915 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by marcaractac on 01 July 2014 - 06:32 PM

The bottom pairing was the issue. Not Q. Quincey and Dekeyser were actually very solid together. Sure he is overpaid, but it's free agency. Everyone is. People really need to chill. Other UFA's didn't want to come here. Get over it.

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 23 March 2014 - 02:46 PM

10-0 wings, nyq: 10 goals, 20 assists. 

Nyquist dishes it to Nyquist, who shoots... Scores!!! May have been tipped in front by Nyquist.
And that's 3 more points for Nyquist


#2491047 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Considering how often prospects don't pan out, I'm not too upset with expending them for proven resources. 




#2490954 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 05 March 2014 - 04:56 PM

People are seriously rage quitting this team over a deadline deal involving a prospect that may bolt to Sweden and a jobber that requested a trade in order to get some playing time under his belt so he can get a contract next year?

Are these the same people that threatened to rage quit the team if Kenny *didn't* make a trade this year?

Not to be a *****, but I totally get why fans of other teams hate red wings fans. Some of the posts I've read today compared with posts leading up to the deadline are ridiculous.

Do I think Kenny overpaid? Probably, but I'm under NO illusions that I could possibly know how to do his job better than he does.

Forgive me for whining about whining, but DAMN.

You needed the Franzen gif right under this one.


Smitty with another apple!  He's been awesome lately.

This is where Cleary shows Philadelphia what they missed out on ... and they thank us.

Maybe we will get a peek into the reclusive world of Mike Ilitch.

#2449328 Varlamov Arrested

Bottom line for me--we don't know what happened. Varlamov is innocent until proven guilty, and FOR GOD DAMN SURE so is his significant other.




#2448854 What's Killing Our Offense?

Posted by Dabura on 30 October 2013 - 02:16 PM

A guy who makes Franzen look like Ovie? Not for almost 6 million a year.

 

Yeah, our blue line is already stacked enough as it is.

 

Kronwall - DeKeyser

Smith - Quincey

Kindl - Lashoff

 

Who are you going to move/demote for P.K. Subban, reigning Norris Trophy winner? Maybe Quincey, but he's been nothing but solid for us since we traded a first round pick for him.

 

Bottom line, we're brimming with all-star offensive defensemen. What we really need is a quality goaltender.




#2445038 Sabres' Kaleta suspended 10 games.

Posted by kipwinger on 16 October 2013 - 04:53 PM

What's funny is Cooke talks about it as if he had to adjust some subtle aspects of his technique. As if his history was an inadvertent and unfortunate part of his playing style.

When really it comes down to 1) don't elbow guys in the head. 2) don't hit guys square in the numbers and ram them facefirst into the boards, 3) don't stick out your knee to hit another guys leg as you check them.

Voila! With those complex adjustments to Matt Cooke's game, 99% of his suspensions would be gone.

 

"It’s just a read. If you don’t change the way you visually see the game, then change is impossible." - Matt Cooke

 

Translation:  Once you begin seeing opposing players as human beings, and not like animals to be slaughtered, it's much easier to play hockey without intentionally trying to ruin their lives.

Some history of the Warriros:

Young Not Floating Mike Babcock (YNFMB)! May he bring us good luck for the upcoming season. Only one more youthful picture and we will have the Holy Trinity of Young Babcocks. Young Floating Mike Babcock (the Father), Young Not Floating Mike Babcock (the Son), and Young TBD Mike Babcock (the Holy Spirit). On second thought, maybe YFMB should be the Holy Spirit? What with the floating and all...
