#2528880 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by SimonSin on 01 July 2014 - 06:22 PM

I just think we're going to have to come to the conclusion we're going to suck for a while before we get back into contention. The faster we accept that the better off we'll be.

Ken Holland can’t give his money away to these free-agents. Nobody wants to come to Detroit. Babcock can’t leave soon enough.

 

 

This.

You know what?

 

f*** Dan Boyle anyway. 

 

And f*** the Rangers. Why would Boyle want to go there? What’s so special about them? They were over-rated last year, benefiting from an inspired Habs victory over Boston.  They are going to be worse this year without Poulliot, Brian Boyle, Stralman, Brassard, etc. 

I agree. I just had family in from New York and they even said that the Rangers surprised the hell out of everyone going to the finals. They won't be much next year. i wasn't crazy about Boyle coming here anyway. 




#2525166 Home Opener 10/9 Against Bruins

That first month is pretty brutal. But I expect the squad to be healthy and ready for the new season. Hopefully we make some trades or signings and we can get back to having some consistency.




#2522406 WCF: (6) California Dreamin' v (5) The Night Chicago Died

Posted by SimonSin on 01 June 2014 - 10:15 PM

KINGS! That was the loudest I ever cheered for a goal not scored by the Red Wings. 

 

What a series. I honestly want the Rangers to win it all now, but the main goal of no Blackhawks, Penguins, or Bruins is accomplished. 

LoL! I NEVER in my life cheered that loud for another team. I was jumping up and down.




#2522250 WCF: (6) California Dreamin' v (5) The Night Chicago Died

Posted by SimonSin on 30 May 2014 - 10:55 PM

I hate to say it but if Chicago wins the cup again which after tonight I think they will, they're going to make people forget what the Wings have done in the past two decades. They'll be the first to repeat since the Wings and their 3rd cup in 5 years. I'm reallyf****** pissed LA couldn't finish them off.




#2520518 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

Posted by SimonSin on 14 May 2014 - 10:05 PM

Oh and I thought I'd share this with you guys. Pretty cool stat that probably a lot of us don't know.

 

 

Numbers Never Lie @ESPN_Numbers 59m

Canadiens just won their 14th Game 7, which ties Red Wings for MOST in NHL history.




#2518671 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by SimonSin on 01 May 2014 - 12:13 PM

 

He is the real deal. Look at the talent the Pens have on the back end, then look at his ice time. He has earned it. At his age, he is also only coming into his prime. Adding him would be as perfect a fit as adding Rafalski was back in 2007.


 

Crazier things have happened when GM's get desperate to keep their job.

I agree. I really hope Kenny pushes for him hard. He'll definitely be one of the most targeted guys come July 1st though.




#2518649 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by SimonSin on 01 May 2014 - 10:59 AM

I think the Wings should push really hard for Matt Niskanen. I made a thread about this a little while back and the guy is producing in the playoffs. He seems to be solid defensively and he can score. 27 years old, right handed shot. When he hits the market he's going to be that really hott chic at the club that every guy is after. He's definitely going to get 5-6 million a year. He would be a huge upgrade on the blue line.




#2516942 ECQF - Game 5 - Red Wings at Bruins - 3:00 PM EST

Posted by SimonSin on 26 April 2014 - 04:29 PM

You know why Lucic speared Dekeyser? Because he can and no one was going to do s*** about it. And on top of that, he comes back and scores big goals. This s*** isn't about "class" people. It's about winning Stanley Cups. You have to do WHATEVER it takes out there. If you have to literally HURT the other team, you do it. We're WAY toof****** soft. Our team is seriously a bunch of *******. Teams like Boston can do whatever they want against us and we can't do s*** about it. I said Bruins in 5 or 6 before the series started so I'm not surprised one bit. Anyone who actually thought we were going to win this series was completely blind.




#2515576 ECQF - Game 4 - Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (F/OT)

Posted by SimonSin on 24 April 2014 - 10:21 PM

I really hope this was Gustavsson's last game as a Red Wing. I can't tell you how many times I held my breath on something that wasn't a big deal because of him.

Are you kidding me man? Gustavsson played a great game. Wow, I can't believe that.




#2514196 ADQF | Game 3 | Boston 3 @ Detroit 0, BOS leads series 2-1

Posted by SimonSin on 22 April 2014 - 10:47 PM

One more thing before I go to bed.

 

Sharks were down 2-0 at home in game 2. Did they "lose interest?"  Did they give up? No, they came back and won. Why? Because they're a great team and they have the players that are getting it done right now. Players that are in their prime and are hungry as hell to win a cup. I think sometimes we get too caught up in being the "Detroit Red Wings" and not looking at the current product we have on the ice. I know we don't have Zetterberg and Ericsson right now and maybe if they were playing it would make a difference but this team just isn't good enough right now and that's the sad truth.

 

Just gotta hope the Wings come out and tie it up on Thursday. Goodnight all.

Man, people blaming Howard is unbelievable. It makes me wonder if you guys are real hockey fans. When you score ZERO goals do you expect to win? So Howard is supposed to make EVERY stop until the Red Wings score? LoL. I thought Howard finished strong. Wings didn't have ANY puck luck today and NOTHING went their way. The post by Helm was huge, if that goes in, it's a different game. Wings looked like s*** yes, but it's still only 2-1. Do I think the Wings will win? No, but it's far from over. They have to find a way to score.

Our PP is absolute garbage. I can't believe how bad it is.
