#2496445 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by rick zombo on 18 March 2014 - 12:13 PM

Really? He's not a hitter IMO


Jurco actually hits a lot. I think he's great on the boards.

#2496418 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by rick zombo on 18 March 2014 - 11:17 AM


Like I said, have you seen him pass?  It might well be a bad thing.


Whatever man. Smith's passes are usually tape-to-tape.


Just ask Ryan Smyth.

Remember when we were all s***ting ourselves early in the year because of our cap issues/too many forwards?

#2496117 Red Wings sign college FA Colin Campbell

Posted by rick zombo on 16 March 2014 - 11:52 PM

Sounds like another possible Glendening? His O numbers really aren't outstanding for college


He’s bigger than Luke. 



And these are Sheahan’s numbers at Notre Dame in his final season of NCAA.



Notre Dame

GP - 37

G - 9

A - 16

P - 25


So maybe he’s another Sheahan.

2 points tonight is a must!

#2495062 Red Wings have Recalled Pulkkinen from Grand Rapids

Posted by rick zombo on 14 March 2014 - 12:15 AM

Man, I don’t think the Wings have had a guy that can shoot like that since Hossa. Maybe even Hull. 


I’d almost lost hope in him based on his stats from his last year in Finland and late last year in GRs (he barely played). But he’s really turning it on. It’s awesome.  


I mean, I know he was supposed to have a good shot, but it looks that much better when that shot goes in 26 times.

#2494971 Cap increase may be lower than projected

Posted by rick zombo on 13 March 2014 - 11:21 AM

I'd almost rather it be a little lower.


This will put the squeeze on teams like Minny who are looking to hoard (Vanek, etc).


The Wings will have plenty of space regardless. The lower the cap, the more chance they have to be competitive if they decide to target certain UFAs. A lower cap might actually induce ceiling teams into trading salary as well. This could perhaps help facilitate a trade for a defensemen if needed.

#2494822 3/11 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blue Jackets 4

Comeau suspended 2 games.  That's surprising...





That'll teach him.

#2494784 What would it take a get Shea Weber?

Posted by rick zombo on 12 March 2014 - 12:48 PM

4 first round picks?!? I like Weber for sure but not enough to sell what ever chance we have to find our future stars.


Here is a question... if getting Weber meant losing either Pavel or Zetterberg would you pull the trigger?


I'd rather suck for the next five years, save those draft picks, and get our own less douch-y Weber + 2 or 3 other future stars.

#2494754 3/11 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blue Jackets 4

Posted by rick zombo on 12 March 2014 - 09:21 AM

Honestly, there are so many things this team is missing right now, even when healthy


I'm not an pro-enforcer guy, never have been. BUT it would have been nice to go toe-to-toe physically with Columbus last night. It seems to me that other teams would be less likely to really lay it on our guys if they knew we had the ability to dish it back. Not talking fights, rather hits and the odd borderline play.


The other thing is, Babcock doesn't like to play that way. he likes to play hockey. So when Holland goes out and gets a Tootoo, he ends up rotting in the minors.

You sure that's not the Penguins in the 09 finals?

#2494045 Andersson breaks foot - down another center

Posted by rick zombo on 10 March 2014 - 12:29 PM

Haha, there are soooo many smart ass things I want to say right now.  Instead I'll try to be productive.  Move Abby back to center for the time being and call up Pulkkinen or Callahan.  Other option is to finally give Ferraro a ticket to the big show.


As if!!!


You just know Emdog's coming.

#2493334 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by rick zombo on 08 March 2014 - 10:52 PM

Still racking up the pts .... Get yourself a kit kat

Jurco was also a pt per game guy when he came up this yr ....anyone know how many pts he's had now in like his last 15-20 games?

No one's arguing that Calle's not playing well in the AHL or that he doesn't have NHL upside.

Holland's responsibility is to keep Detroit in the hunt. He's not going to stand pat and throw in the season towel just so we can horde B caliber prospects.
