#2685055 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

Posted by puckloo39 on Yesterday, 01:13 PM

He's happy to be at home, and not with the Wings -- they are not going to do well this year (per Ken Holland).  So he went where he can win, at least.

Liking Larkin playing center.

LMFAO. Looks like the amazing Jim Nill, who all the Holland haters always praise, ended up signing Hudler.


Yea but because it was Jim Nill, it was a sweet move.


#2684987 Single Game Tickets Pre Sale

Posted by Barrie on 23 August 2016 - 04:58 PM

Single Game Tickets went on sale today at 10am. I hope all of you had a Pre Sale code, because by 4:30 it was slim pickings for the weekend games! I was lucky to get tickets to October 29 vs. Boston and December 11 vs. Philly. If you're hoping to see the Bruins in October, I got the last 2 together for that game, so blame me for there only being single tickets left :lol:

He was fine last year in the beginning too, he hit a wall around January though. It's about that longevity. The less he plays the longer he will last with those legs you saw yesterday.

 

Couldn't agree more. Talent and old timer wisdom is there. Fingers crossed he holds up.

Posted by GoalieManPat on 16 August 2016 - 08:37 PM

this could fire up the top prospects and trades convo in the official offseason trade. After all he was our top draft pick in 08, and gone for nothing

Its not like the Wings let an NHL asset walk for free. The guy was a bust.

So you would trade prospects for middle pairing defenseman? There's no top 2 D-man in the league that's available for trade from what I'm seeing. Why stack up on middle pairing D-men? We already have a lot of those. 

 

And at one point, Cabrera was like the Ovechkin of baseball. Bad example. 

 

Agreed....I dont think many people would be complaining if we traded AA or Mantha for someone like PK Subban. Using Miggy is an awful example as he was an elite MVP caliber talent.

Some food for thought... this was posted in a slightly different context.

Many of us react crazily to the notion of trading AA or Mantha, etc... but we often forget you have to give to get and their is risk in making trades. Below are two links surrounding the trade of Brent Burns, the first article is from 2011 and the second from 2015. The outlook on the trade changed considerably in just 4 years. What looked like a good trade for the wild, turned out to be a major blunder. You never know with prospects and unproven players.

Bottom line for me I'd trade any player on the roster including Larkin in the right deal, even Larkin may flame out in a couple of years.


#2684816 Ryspayev Should Be Banned.. Disgusting.

Posted by kliq on 14 August 2016 - 04:40 PM

I don't see why he was suspended. So he made a bunch of Russian ******* turtle and run....

 

So if a guy like Rafi Torres did that to Dylan Larkin and knocked him out indefinitely with a concussion, you wouldn't care and would be against a suspension?

I know most people don't like this idea. But with larkin being so young and already a top 6 center, and nielson locked up long term, why not trade aa in a package for a dman?

KHL should've just shipped him off to North America as punishment. The NHL isn't the rough and tumble league it once was, but I can easily name you 50 NHLers off the top of my head who would kick the s*** out of this guy.

Honestly, I'd say most fans take pride in the streak. I'm not 100% sure about this but the streak is something to be proud of. 

Well put. The Red Wings are a rare breed of dominance and we became spoiled unfortunately.


I'm definitely proud of it. I'd love to see us break the record. Regardless of that though, being one of the only (or maybe the only?) team to make the post season each year since the cap era started is pretty impressive.

The business world of connections.

 

Though Roy did win that Jack Adams.

So, is this what happens when you hire unqualified people based on their name and relationship to you and not because they're good at their job?
