#2579631 3/6 GDT : Flames 5 at Red Wings 2

Posted by rick zombo on 06 March 2015 - 10:21 PM

Wings dominated from puck drop until the bouncy rubber man kicked out a massive rebound and got caught 12 feet out of his net. Lundqvist and Price don’t do that. Gave Calgary life.

Deserved a better fate tonight. Thanks Howard, Erection and Kronwall

 

Probably deserved the loss vs Rangers though. So, circle of life, etc.

The Wings top lines are dominating the chances and possession in this game. Should be winning if not for the defensive breakdowns ........

 

and crappy goaltending.

You know I like Huds,but I don't really miss him. I do miss Fillpula though.

 

Tatar + Nyquist > Hudler + Filpulla  ;)

 

Calgary are due to lose and played last night. Wings looking to wake up after that sludge-footed turnover fest on Wednesday.

 

5-2 Wings. Nyquist breaks out of his goal scoring skid, and they get some production from Jurco on the top line.

Stepan had his stick wrapped so far around Nyquist. When Nyquist closed his arm around his stick he was almost holding stepan's arm haha.

 

I think Stephan actually had his hand on Nyquist’s ballz at one point.

Didn't Arizona keep like 50% of his salary? 

 

Yep. Still can't believe they did that. Chumps.

Would be happy with a point the Rangers are stacked and if king Henrik starts uoooo

 

You always say this :lol:

 

First game back after a grueling road trip is usually a let-down game. Hopefully the excitement the new guys bring has the team jumping early.

 

5 - 3 Wings.




#2577990 What's with the "giving players hamster names" obsession?

#2577911 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by rick zombo on 03 March 2015 - 10:35 AM

I know that it was mention that Zidlicky waived his no-trade clause to come to Detroit.

 

But what I didn't know, and what EJ Hradek mentions at the end of this video:

is that Lamoriello had better offers from other teams, but that Zidlicky chose Detroit.

 

So, Holland gets a bargain because players do, in fact, still want to come here.

#2577115 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by rick zombo on 02 March 2015 - 12:08 AM

I don't take it as not being a pushover...i view it as selfish. Sure, it his job. A job that he's had 4 times as long as 95% of GM's. That said, he knew what Yzerman meant to this franchise, the city, and to the Ilitch family. I'm sure he would have been paid as much. If he was so unhappy, most teams would have hired him id imagine. But he HAD to be the GM at the expense of Yzerman leaving...most likely to not return. That, to me, isn't balls...its almost disrespectful to the wishes of the owner and the fans.


If Illitch really wanted Yzerman to replace Holland, you don't think he could have done this? Pretty sure a franchise that has helped Russians defect, could force a current GM to step aside. To me, Ilitch was trying to do some damage control when Yzerman left (for the sake of fans like you) by saying "I love Stevie, I did everything I could to get him to stay", when really he was probably thinking "I love Stevie, but Kenny's the best GM in the NHL, so I probably shouldn't force him to give up his job to a rookie GM"

Just my opinion, of course.

Really?!? Guys....anyone have the article? Do you know that that situation actually happened? Because it did.
 
Also, its one reason why people hated on George W and love Obamanation...its presence. 
 
Holland has the presence of a man that can be persuaded to back down. Nill does not. I've met them both and seen countless interviews as well. Its the same you look for in a coach...one of the reasons i believe Dave Lewis failed. Lewis didn't have the presence to set a standard for the team...but Babs does and he knows how to use it.

You're so informed and enlightened, shouldn't you have the article? I'll wait patiently while you go and find me the article that states that Holland's boss gave him a direct order to do something, and he said no.
