#2607828 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by HIFI_canadian on 14 May 2015 - 08:19 PM

Anyone that says Mike Babcock is overrated or that we won't miss him if he leaves hasn't witness an organizational collapse. Ask Dallas when they let go of Hitchcock, Toronto when they let go of Pat Quinn, Colorado when they let go of Hartley, St. Louis with Quineville..etc. 


Mike Babcock is the reason why we continue to make the playoffs and I believe he will come back. The only way he leaves is how much Toronto is willing give him roster control, that can be tricky.

This team has to get their act together. 

Well we got the 2 points! Nice, I can only assume it's the karma my new jersey...you're welcome :)


You might want to get a monster jersey after this one.

Oh, you mean the jersey giveaway and $7 seats didn't do it? :lol:


You know you are a failing franchise when you see a Scott Gomez Jersey in the front row.

Obviously, DTE is shelling out money for that.  No different than a "Belle Tire Power Play" or the "Call Sam Studios" on TV.  I agree though, it's annoying


It interferes with the goal horn too, not cool.

Alright we've got to win this one! It starts with a good omen as for a late Xmas gift at work I was given a blank away jersey so let's go wings!!

Also on a side note I now need a name on the back-I have a home Zetterberg with an A, so do I put Z on this one too with a C? Or Tatar, these are who I have it down to so far. Any ideas?


 Here is my Tatar Jersey, its pretty sharp. 



#2432676 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by HIFI_canadian on 06 August 2013 - 09:20 PM

Never say never..


I think Brunner would still be a good fit for us. His asking price goes down everyday so you never know.

Damn I love this Dekeyser kid. Representing WMU well!

Should be giving him more ice-time then Quincey and his Peewee hockey cage.

Can't wait to see him back in the lineup.  :no2:

#2369202 Red Wings close to re-signing Howard

Posted by HIFI_canadian on 15 March 2013 - 02:24 AM

Howard is 28 yrs old, in his prime and already we have someone talking about replacing him down the road.. unbelievable. 


Mrazek has years away to be considered a starting goaltender. Gust will have one more here then let go and should be (although wish we could send him down now). Mrazek and McCollum will have a chance to audition for the backup role. 

#2369193 Trading Filppula

Posted by HIFI_canadian on 15 March 2013 - 01:44 AM

Why do people think Datsyuk is not going to re-sign with the team? Has anyone heard him say that he doesnt want to re-sign? All this talk of Flippula replacing him or trading Flipp is bogus. Flippula will most likely not be with us next season especially if free agency is not deep at centers and is asking price is too much.


Honestly, I wouldn't sign him if he wants 6+ a season. He has no confidence when he has the puck, he's a pass-first player and were not looking for that. Were looking for a role player (not skills wise) that can step in like Zetts and Dats. That is our biggest issue on offense. 

#2368245 4 Forwards that are/may be available, that help us:

You do know our biggest problem is not having a #1 Defenseman, right? 

#2365054 Howard = Average

Posted by HIFI_canadian on 05 March 2013 - 03:18 PM



it was a shootout... Datsyuk missed, Brunner had Crawford beat but lost control of the puck, and Z didn't take a very good shot. How could we win if our guys couldn't even score on a shootout?


Apparently he thinks Howard should be scoring goals now.
