Abdelkader with a secondary helper on the goal.

He sounds like he is planning to be wasted for the alumni game....


He doesn't drink, due to his health.  I think he's just excited (like me) to see the Wings look like they're supposed to for a change.

I'm so glad the internet wasn't a thing when my best friend and I were making ridiculously embarrassing videos that we thought were super awesome :lol:

#2651119 Should the Red Wings Trade for Byfuglien?

I thought Jurco looked really good both games. So that's a plus. Otherwise we were brutal. We never shoot, and when we do we never hit the net. No wonder we don't score.

The term is often the problem. 


And again, I want to preface this by saying that I don't think any of these guys have been bad.  I just don't think that they're so good that they couldn't have been replaced by someone on a better contract. 


For instance, is Ericsson (4.25 cap hit for six years) and Quincey (4.25 cap hit for two years) substantially better than Quincey and, say, Willie Mitchell (4.25 cap hit for two years) would have been?  The latter obviously gives us WAY more flexibility, and the difference in quality of play is negligible.  They all signed in the same year.  And here's the kicker, guys like Willie Mitchell are available every single year. 


Likewise, is Drew Miller (1.3 cap hit) that much better than, say, Tomas Fleischmann (750K) that we need to keep Miller around next year.  Fleischmann will be off he market but you can bet you ass there will be someone EXACTLY like him who could easily slot in there. 


The same was true for all (or most) of Abby, Helm, Kindl, Howard, Smith, etc.  They're all replaceable.  And it would do the team a lot of good if Holland would keep that in mind during contract negotiations.

I'd be happy if they'd just swap Andersson for Callahan.

Maybe a little Shatty swap prior to the game? :lol:



Lets Go Wings!



BTW, if those are current line, YAYAYA for Helm going back to the 4th.  I am not making fun of him either, he and Glenny together are a pretty deadly checking unit. I like Helm on the 4th all day long.

Great game overall. Very exciting game. Too bad Petr let in that Howardesque shootout goal at the end.

Another night of not gaining ground on the Panthers

True, but panthers will do that for us as the season goes on, they are on a high and once they lose I suspect a different streak starting, one where they slowly drop down the standings.

Howard needs to stop that 3rd goal.

Osgood is a god damn embarrassment as an announcer. If he mispronounces another name, or uses improper grammar one more time, I'm going to switch to the Los Angeles feed.

I can't believe they fired Larry Murphy for a guy who can't speak correctly.

Is there such a thing as being too professional? Too consistent? Too ho hum about the day to day grind of the NHL? My biggest criticism of this team right now is that they play without a pulse. We win games by being talented, but we aren't as good as we can be because we are ONLY talented. This is why I've always loved Ovechkins enthusiasm, I think that his energy actually makes the team better overall.

Trade for someone who does this. An emotional leader, not a lock room stalwart. I like Buf, but there might be others. A little intensity would go a long way with our low blood pressure group.

Petr should probably play in San Jose but get Jimmy some action too. A motivated Jimmah is a scary Jimmy

Yeah I don't want Jim to sit too long, especially after his last two outings.
