#RedWings Tomas Jurco had "minor" back surgery last week, hurting himself working out. Out 4-6 weeks. Might not be ready for start of season
3:19 PM - 24 Aug 2016

#RedWings expect Niklas Kronwall to be ready for start of camp. Knee feels better, not 100 percent, so he withdrew f. World Cup, per Holland

#RedWings D prospect Vili Saarijarvi will have wrist surgery, sidelining him for three months, Ken Holland said. Hurt in Plymouth tourney.
3:26 PM - 24 Aug 2016

 


So much for a roster crunch lol


Pretty bummed for Saarijarvi and Jurco. Jurco particularly really can't seem to catch a break.

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.

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.

Would love to have PK on the team.


#2683155 Glendening signs 4-year, $1.8m AAV extension

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 14 July 2016 - 11:04 AM

I like Glendenning, but this just seems like such an unnecessary signing.

The streak is meaningless unless it's accompanied by a legitimate chance at wining the cup.


Not to the people who run the team.


#2682048 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 03 July 2016 - 10:21 AM

I know Frans isn't Datsyuk but it will be nice to rely on another top center playing over 80 games this year. Frans has only missed 5 games in the last 5 years which bodes well for us since we always have injured players.


When he gets injured and misses half the season, I'm blaming you.


#2675011 Calder finalists

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 03 May 2016 - 04:28 PM

Panarin should win and Eichel should be in the talk over Mcdavid. He didn't play half the season, it's unfortunate but that's how it is. Nominations shouldn't be based on ifs and assumptions (that he continued that ppg pace).

Can't say I'm surprised, but I can definitely say I'm disappointed. At least be a little more clever about it, that seems like a name a 4 year old would come up with.




#2674025 Mantha

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 27 April 2016 - 02:03 PM

pure craziness. he was good. he wasn't great.

Agreed. He wasn't a game breaker but I thought he looked pretty good for a first time NHLer. He generated his own chances well which is something we don't see a lot of.

Another though, that miscue by Mrazek reminded me a lot of Howard!

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 21 April 2016 - 08:47 PM

I'm not too beat up about this series loss as I didn't expect them to make it far anyway, it just legitimately saddens me to think is most likely Datsyuk's last game as a Wing. It's surreal to even think.

Why play AA when you can play a slightly worse version of him in Helm?

Blashill's strategy just screams "tread water" to me.

Quincey better be injured ffs. Also, Andersson goes from not playing at all to centering the 3rd? Clearly that's the change we needed.
