#2577046 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 01 March 2015 - 10:48 PM

So right now we're looking at something like this:
Tatar - Datsyuk - Cole
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Abdelkader
Weiss - Sheahan - Glendening
Miller - Andersson - Cleary
If everyone gets healthy (I know I included zberg in the first lineup, he's almost back)
Tatar - Datsyuk - Cole
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Abdelkader
Helm - Sheahan - Franzen
Miller - Weiss - Glendening
All 4 of those line can be a threat defensively and offensively. That's pretty sick. Now the defense...

I wanna keep pulkkinen the rest of the year and hopefully get him going so we could maybe take advantage of his shot in the bottom 6 come playoffs

#2575748 Anaheim Deja Vu

Posted by captain2005 on 28 February 2015 - 12:53 AM

This made me feel a bit better about the team. Anaheim just did the same thing they did to us to the Kings. Down by two, and scored three in the third. Unlike us though, the Kings couldn't tie it up and get a point, Anaheim just potted the empty netter. Makes me feel all warm inside could be the Rye though.


All in all, win or lose tomorrow against Nashville I'm happy with how they played. I kept hearing doom and gloom, and if they could just break 500 against the other teams on this road trip we would be happy. They might have been ugly wins, mostly come from behind, but I am almost more thrilled by that. The fact that they never act like they are out of the game.


Beating Chicago was too sweet, especially in shoot out like they did. Somehow working their way back into the Dallas game. Sucks to lose to Anaheim, but they are a great game, and if anything the 40 minutes of dominance made me thrilled, losing to LA, on a six game win streak sucks, but they are a dangerous team and it's not like the Wings were manhandled. And then to come from behind against the Sharks.


I feel good about this team, and even more about the future seasons. Should just be up from here. I like our team, I like our Goalie (sorry Howard haters, he's a good man) and I love Red Wings hockey.


Sorry for the rant, just started watching two seasons ago. Last year was super stressful. Good year to get into it but more frustrations than this year. This year has felt great. I am like the only Red Wings fan in my circle (slowly converting my Dad and Girlfriend, Dog is already on board) so this is a good support group for me most times. I can't believe I never watched hockey before, but damn it what a sport. I mostly love it so much because this god damn team. Thank you for your time one and all.

I've read this reference a few times now could someone share some light on this? Is Clarkson drinking a lot of water?

Not sure if you're joking, but here: 
The shift after, Bertuzzi asks if he's the water bottle police.

looooooool guys big Bert has to mail it to Columbus now

That's a hook but Versteeg dangling from Quincey's stick is nothing.

I thought he just lifted his stick in anticipation of him controlling.

Weak call, once again.
Pierre has been more and more complimentary of us as of late.
Maybe he's hoping to get a nod at coach when we lose either babs or blashill.

He should have just switched Abdelkader and Helm if that's the case...


I hate all 4 lines right now to be honest. Way too many players in roles they shouldn't be in...


I'd like to see something like...





#2571113 Next Number to be retired

Posted by kipwinger on 16 February 2015 - 12:40 PM

Osgood, and nobody else.  Chris Osgood is one of the ten best players to ever play his position.  He's got the longevity, the hardware, and the numbers.  There's no objective measure of an excellent goalie that he doesn't possess in spades. 


Otherwise, I can't think of anybody else that deserves it.

Whatevs, I still love Shane Doan.  Guy's a monster and has had a great career.  And anybody who thinks he's not a good leader ought to think back to how he played against us in the playoffs.  Dude is a beast. 


And beasts are usually hotheads...


which is why Luke Glendening rules.  Hotheads HATE Luke Glendening. 

#2568187 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by amato on 04 February 2015 - 07:43 AM

"Good enough" maybe in two games. The rest of them the wings had to put score mrazek's mistakes. Sure we've won quite a bit but I for one can't wait for our number one to get back.

Agreed. I'm not by any stretch saying that mraz is ready to be a regular starter or anything.. I can't wait for Howie to come back either. I guess I should've said that the wings winning regularly lately make it so Howie doesn't have to rush back.

I just hope we don't forget how to put up goals with Jimmy back between the pipes.

#2567132 Franzen on IR

Posted by kipwinger on 30 January 2015 - 11:50 AM

I think that goes for just about everyone Kip. I've always been a believer and supporter in Holland but there's no way I can sit here and say that I've never questioned any of his moves / personel decisions... He's made quite a few that I haven't liked and I'm sure he'll make quite a few more that I won't like. No GM is perfect, but Ken Holland is prettyf****** brilliant when it comes to managing his team.

I actually didn't mind the Quincey signing and I like it now. I didn't mind the Cleary signing and I still don't. I hated the Tootoo signing from beginning to end, same goes for the Samuelsson signing, but that was worse than I even anticipated... I think the big thing though, is that all of these were basically stop gaps to get us through before the kids were ready.

"In Kenny we trust"...


I still don't like Quincey's contact.  He's played much better and all that, but he's still overpaid.  By a lot.  As far as Cleary, I kinda don't care about them re-signing him this year.  Whatever, let him play out one more year as the 13th forward and retire a Wing.  I hated last year's signing though, but those circumstances were different. 


Either way, my point in bringing them up was just to say that while I thought Kenny was making questionable moves because he was washed up, he was really just putting bandaids on the problem until the kids could take over.  Which has always been his stated strategy, but which I thought was a bad idea...until I saw how good they were. 


So, long story short, if Kenny moves a prospect or two for a veteran, I'll assume those prospects weren't 100% necessary.  Because it's not like he doesn't know what good prospects look like.  And if he doesn't, then I'll assume we've already got whatever we need in our system.

Why is Miller in Weiss' spot on the third?

Doghouse for getting 3 points

Apparently we can't kill any penalties when mrazek plays. Gotta save that


That was a flukey one.

YES! Demons conquered for tonight.

Nice five-game win streak heading into the break.

Cheer up guys, Howard isn't playing, we have a shot here!

Probably wouldn't have even needed the shootout if Howard was playing. Just saying.
