#2592026 Brendan Smith

Do you guys honestly think Smith's going to be smarter with the puck at forward...when he has the puck more?  I don't want that dingbat touching a puck ever again. 


Like, seriously.  If I were near Brendan Smith and he tried to reach down a pick up a puck to put it back in the bin at a sporting goods store, I'd still punch him. 

#2587930 Byfuglien suspended 4 games for crosscheck to J.T. Miller's neck

Posted by ami on 02 April 2015 - 12:37 PM

On this video, does anyone notice a man on skates wearing black-and-white stripes shirt and black pants right behind Byfuglien while he delivered that crosscheck?


I was wondering what he was doing there? Who allowed him on the rink during the game? And if he was authorized to be there, to what purpose exactly?

#2569513 2015 Draft

Posted by number9 on 09 February 2015 - 06:20 PM

I haven't seen any of the draft prospects but from what I have read I'm hoping Brandon Carlo drops to us.




Wow, that kid is big, he must be good.

#2569535 2015 Draft

Posted by number9 on 09 February 2015 - 09:14 PM

is 6'5 a problem? or did you just ignore the rest of the reports on him.


Actually, that's exactly what I did.


I'll admit, I know very little about the upcoming draft class. That goes for this year and every year for that matter. Of course there are always a few players I'm familiar with before draft day, like the top 5-10 picks, as well as a few players around where the Wings are drafting. I knew all about Anthony Mantha prior to the 2013 draft, and that's exactly who I, along with just about every other Wings fan wanted. I just find it funny when so many people act like they are experts when it comes to evaluating these 17-18 year old, undrafted kids. Chances are, there are very few people on here that have actually watched any of these players regularly, to have any basis for an evaluation, let alone all of them to compare players. For the most part, people are basing their entire opinion on these players, on a paragraph scouting report, and that's best case scenario. Others are just looking at their bios and looking at height and weight and thinking, "wow, that kid is big, he must be good"... Other than stature and point totals, there's not a whole lot else to base an opinion on, unless you're fortunate enough to be able to watch these kids on a nightly basis...


MasterPavel, the Wings have lacked right shooting players (both defensemen and forwards) for years now, and they proved last season when they picked 6 left shooting forwards, that they will pick the best player available, despite their handedness... Roy is small? 6'0", 185lbs. is small for a 17 year old? Okay... But Jens Looke who is virtually the exact same size, is a player that we cannot pass over? I don't know anything about this kid, but he has 6 points in 34 SHL games this season... What's so special about this kid? If Roy and Looke are both available when we pick, my non-expert pick is Roy for sure. Also, I'd love to know what gives you the impression that Spencer is "right handed Kyle Quincey"?... And personally, I think a right handed Quincey would be a great addition to our prospect pool.


I will carry on with my "dman agenda"... because that's our biggest need...






Wow, that kid is big, he must be good.

Well, Kenny should at least kick the tires on this, but I doubt he will. lol

What are you talking about? If there is one thing Kenny will most definitely do, it's kick some tires

#2559974 Q and A with Teemu Pulkkinen

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 31 December 2014 - 06:35 PM


If it makes you feel better, Stamkos is only 2 years older than Pulkkinen.  


Stamkos started so young he's been in the league 6 years, but still, saying you grew up watching him is a bit of a stretch.  


What if he said he grew up idolizing Harold Snepsts?  Wouldn't that be something?

It would be.  You don't see that kind of wisdom from most young players these days.

f*** Nyquist, marry Datsyuk, kill Franzen.

Nailed it.

#2554479 Mantha getting closer.

Big game for Mantha and big game for the griffins. Seems like every game I miss Mantha has a good game.


Keep staying away  :lol:

Always Franzen.

People aren't lining up to give away 2nd line centers, though.  And we had one, in Legwand, and it didn't work.  And it cost the team one of it's more highly-thought of prospects AND a pick. That's the kind of talent it's going to take to acquire another one, and there aren't really any 2nd line centers as UFA's at the end of this year (the typical player you can get in a trade in the middle of the season).

And to think, Legwand is playing top line minutes with the Senators and also playing on their power play... hmm... they're equal to the Red Wings anyway, at least looking at points (3 points behind with 2 fewer games played).

Ya I would've liked to have seen him back but we wouldn't of had room for cleary and the possibility of Alfie coming back.... So ya no room for a second line center who partially Carried us to the playoffs.

If Mantha ends up looking too good to stay in GR send Jurco back down to regain his goal touch.


Hate to say it, but nothing Mantha does is going to get him more than nine games with the big club this season.
