It doesn't help that Captain Vanilla McPlainwrap is wearing it.

#2639081 Who and What are the Detroit Red Wings?

Posted by kipwinger on 23 November 2015 - 07:50 PM

Who are the Red Wings? A team that's sitting comfortably in playoff position and one who is now consistently playing well, and often beating, some of the better teams in the league. Yep, that's us.

Seems like there's considerable effort being made to make this team out like its worse than it really is. Look around guys and gals. We are a good team. And the best part? We aren't even as good as we are going to be in a month or two.

Its not a bad looking jersey.  Its different, "modern" and a nice look for one game.  The originals and the Winter Classic jerseys are still way better.

Wings just have to get really lucky. Like Ekbald refusing to resign with Panthers. Could you imagine? We'd have an amazing core all around the same age. In 2 years...

#2639010 Ian White Preparing for War?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 November 2015 - 01:19 PM

Figures that a guy named White would have all those guns.     ;)

'White faces two charges of careless use or storage of a firearm or prohibited device, two charges of possession of a firearm in an unauthorized place and single charges of unauthorized possession of a firearm, unauthorized importing of a prohibited or restricted firearm, and breach of recognizance.'



I think the definition of 'vague' is seen in the quote above...Word of advice for those who enjoy hunting, or firearms - only live here in the USA.


I can't be the only guy who think Ian White kinda looks like Jack Nicholson.  

#2638950 Ferraro on waivers

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 22 November 2015 - 11:40 PM

Yah, if you dont like someone else's opinion, then it's trolling. I get your game. Instead of debating with facts and reason, just use insults and call people trolls. Real fun.

Ferraro had value. We let him go for nothing. That's not good player management.

at best we would get a 7th round pick for him, which there's no way to know if anyone would even have paid that. I'm not sure who all put in a bid for him, but Boston got him and its not like they're the last place team.(the lowest ranked team to put in the claim gets the player.)

So put yourself in that situation.
Would you rather have a 7th round pick(that would probably be a conditional pick based on whether or not he stays in the lineup) or take the chance that he'll clear waivers and you can keep him in the system.
MAYBE a 7th round pick, or the chance to keep the player you invested a 2nd round pick/and years of development in. It could be argued that Not trying to keep him in your system would be worse asset management. And losing a player with an actual chance of being part of the teams future would DEFINITELY be worse asset management.

And yeah, he was almost a 1st round pick in 2009, Would you trade anything for Scott Glennie? After all, he actually was a first round pick in 2009(8th overall which is close to a top 5 pick) and Boston definitely wouldn't have given us anything for him, even just *future considerations* (which are essentially worthless now anyway) like you said we're division rivals, they wouldn't trade with us.

And having a different opinion is fine but don't pretend that you use any kind of facts or reason that correlate your opinions. And debating with someone who has already made their mind up that they're right no matter what anyone else says isn't really a debate. Its more like talking to a wall.

Eminem came up empty for me last time, so I need something new.  It needs to be gritty, aggressive, grinding.  Something that's almost synonymous with "fire in the belly", but that's also from Detroit.  Something to be symbolic of the kind of intensity this team needs. 


This is hard. 


Wings: 3 (Green, Nyquist, Helm)

Kinds: 2. 


Oh, I just remembered.  What about this guy?

#2638321 When does Larkin get the C?

Posted by DatsyukianDekes on 20 November 2015 - 11:46 AM

This has to be a troll post. How does Sheahan get an A? And please do explain how Hank has lost his heart and soul.

Smith and morrissey

The Smiths are getting back together with Morrissey?!? Sweet.

What is wrong with this scenario is that the Isles aren't reallly getting a quality replacement for Hamonic RIGHT NOW... and that's what they want/need.

Kenny doesn't go for players like Hamonic.

He has family Western Canada and wants to be close for personal reasons. A real GM like Nill or Yzerman would use pure willpower to induce a tectonic shift of the earth's crust, capable of moving the Pacific coast closer to Michigan. Holland sux.

It's this kind of "do what I want" thinking that we need more of in Detroit. Holland plays by the rules too much. The laws of physics were meant to be broken Kenny.

You shouldn't be expecting this team to be seriously contending for a Stanley Cup at this point. Our next wave of elite talent is being developed, once Larkin and co. are in their prime I will be concerned if we're not one of the very best teams in the league. Until then we still have a shot, like most teams in the league. I think everybody in the organization still strives to be the very best that they can but they're more focused on the future
