#2570549 Detroit Red Wings - All Time Team

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 February 2015 - 05:46 PM


I never said that, please dont put words in my mouth. This is my personal all time team, I will fully admit that I am a huge fan of Kris Draper and wanted him to centre my 4th line. This isn't a list ranking the all time forwards 1-12. Same goes for Probert, I doubt he is a top 12 all time wing, but I wanted him on my 4th line.


Pronvost is better then "several" of the D-men I listed? Who? Not Lidstrom, not Kelly, not Chelios (especially if you are taking his peak). Konstantinov I feel would have gone down as one of the best ever if not for the accident, I wasn't going to hold that against him. The guy was second to Lidstrom in Norris voting the year before the accident.


Kronwall wont get the respect he deserves until after he retires, but im sure there is a debate there. Larson was definitely better offensively then Pronvost. Larson had 570 points in 708 games, Pronvost had 297 points in 983 games. I know its not all about offense, but it has to play a large part.


Not saying that Pronvost doesn't deserve to be top 6, but to say he is ahead of "several" I believe is an exaggeration.


You're making a mistake I used to make.  Looking at scoring stats despite eras.  Defensemen weren't scoring that much in those days.  Doug Harvey only scored 50 points in a season once.  I suppose Mike Green is better than him?  How about Phil Housley being better than Eddie Shore?  I think not.  


Forget the points.  Pronovost is in the HHOF.  Larsson isn't even close. Kronwall won't even come close either.  Konstantinov had his career ended early so we'll never know.        


Pronovost is easily below Lidstrom and Kelly, but I'd rank him above those other defensemen on your list.  Now Chelios is way higher all time than Pronovost, but he was past his peak in Detroit (albeit still solid defensively).

Z might as well go back to being a high volume shooter. First line is not doing too hot lately... Disappointing loss. 

It was close, could've gone either way. Effort looked good to me.

Further the Anti-Howard Agenda....You mean stating my opinion? On a Discussion Board??


This isn't an Anti-Vaccine rant, I'm not trying to push anything on people


If pointing out that Howard just did what people were ragging on Mrazek for is "Anti-Howard" then yeah I guess I'm guilty.


Hey, I don't agree with anyone who thought bringing Cleary back to waste a roster space and sit in the press box was good move. Am I furthering the Anti-Cleary Agenda by posting that??

#2570524 Good to see they're getting along

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 February 2015 - 02:20 PM

^ That's true and I believe it's because he wasnt a hall of famer. Illitch standards. 


It's disrespectful to a man's legacy and to his family to have done that.  Ilitch was classless.  You don't take a guy's jersey down just because you don't think he was deserving.  There's a lot of undeserving players in sports who have had their numbers retired.

I doubt it.  Monster will probably be hurt again.

#2564655 1/18 GDT : Sabres 4 at Red Wings 6 (Z w/Hat Trick)

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 18 January 2015 - 10:39 PM

The only person I would pick MAYBE as a captain over Zetterberg is Jonathan Toews.

And here I thought I was done throwing up after yesterday.

But nope. That right there did the trick.

#2465567 Why the Red Wings get injured

Posted by CMatt89 on 17 December 2013 - 04:07 PM

I'd rather see Franzen knee someone in the head, then throw a fit when someone touches glove to his face. Do enforcers prevent injuries? No, but they prevent reoccurring instances where the entire team gets bullied, thus leading to injuries. Enforcers are the street justice of the hockey world. The "police" (refs) aren't doing an adequate job for the most part in supporting player safety, so that's where the thugs come in. Is it really that hard to acquire someone that can fight AND play hockey? Probably not..



Edit: Having players with multiple roles seems to be non existent.

I'll let Jimmy answer that:



haha Thanks!


The segment with Helm, Abs, Quincey and Smith was one of the most fakest things I've seen on TV. Really? A conversation about Datsyuk? God try to be more original. Obviously it was a set-up conversation. Probably HBO camera guys fed up of not getting crap for coverage and told em to talk about Datsyuk or something. The Alfredsson segment was much better. He was very natural and so were his kids (little goofballs) that's the kind of stuff you want to see. Not fake conversations for the cameras...

I doubt HBO actually suggested it, but it did seem forced and unnatural. Like they were thinking "Oh s*** they're filming us, we need something to talk about!"

#2412253 Ian White

Posted by FlashyG on 27 May 2013 - 01:27 AM

He called out Babcock publicly when he was made a healthy scratch, he's rumored to be a bad teammate and he hasn't played a game in a long time now.


White is gone this off-season. 

#2414083 Trade Smith ASAP!

Posted by joesuffP on 28 May 2013 - 04:04 PM

I think Quincey has been great. All of our defenseman have stepped up aside from smith.

The pressure is really getting to him he looks so nervous and uncomfortable I don't think it's good for his development to be playing in a top 4 role. I honestly feel bad for him but he's making us lose so I'm starting to resent him

Zetterberg's slapshot is pretty good.

#2409037 Zetterberg's Slap shot

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 21 May 2013 - 06:32 PM

Im not phazed a bit. I love how this guy thinks he's the hockey authority. The funny thing is that there are way more than 3 shots. I can think of a lot of different ones:

1) slap shot (MacInnis)
2) wrist shot (Yzerman)
3) backhand shot (Zetterberg)
4) dangle shot (Datsyuk)
5) snap shot (Messier) 
6) half slap shot (Robitaille)
7) bat shot (Gretzky)
8) redirect shot (Holmstrom)
9) pass shot (Lidstrom)
10) chop shot [backhanded slapper] (Lemieux)


hahahahaha this cannot be real.  I'll go ahead and say 4 shots and separate the snap and wrist even though they are very similar.

So you get 1,2,3, and 5. 

4 = deke (not a shot)

6 = slap shot

7 = ?? baseball? I'm not quite sure

8 = tip (not a shot)

9 = pass

10 = still a backhand, but i could see allowing that one to be loosely called a different shot

#2407311 Zetterberg's Slap shot

Posted by St. Michael (the Red Wing) on 19 May 2013 - 07:37 PM

Zetterberg is now a playmaker BUT can still shoot the puck.


He's an elite player STILL in the NHL even if he is aging and with back problems.


And I'm happy he is our captain.



#2407308 Trade Smith ASAP!

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 19 May 2013 - 07:22 PM


He is young and has made mistakes.  I just wouldn't count him out that's all.


I actually don't think the next captain is currently on the roster or in the Wings system. 


Who knows?  Maybe the 2013 NHL draft will place somebody in the Red Wings hands.

Spoke w/Danny DeKeyser who practiced for second time today. Planning doctor appointment this week to see when he can get hard cast off.

@CraigCustance any chance at a possible Karlsson-like miracle return to the playoffs?

Craig Custance ‏@CraigCustance 1 min
.@RyanWalker78 When I asked if playoff return possible, he smiled and said 'maybe.' He's definitely not ruling it out.
