#2455807 Nyquist Getting the call

Posted by rick zombo on 20 November 2013 - 03:36 PM

"Nyquist Getting the Call"

 

Nyquist: Hello?

Holland: Hey Gustav, how are things in Grand Rapids?

Nyquist: Great, I'm leading the team in scoring and we're first in our division and....

Holland: Yeahhh, that's swell. Say listen, could you give Eaves a message for me? Tell him to pack his bags for Detroit. We're calling him up for Thursday's game. K Thx, later!!!!!




#2455796 Respect Babcock and Holland

I'm a spoiled brat. So no. No respect. Unless we have a deep run or win the cup. Then it's ZOMFG, these guys are genius.




#2455779 Holland Interview

Posted by rick zombo on 20 November 2013 - 02:59 PM

I have to wonder if he is feeling some pressure from the big boss, he doesn't usually come straight out like that, he usually just says the wings will start clicking, we like our team blah blah blah

not like Toews is 25 nd has captained his team to two cups right...

 

Not like Toews was a first overall pick and a genrational superstar. The Wings have a great prospect pool, but that's what they're missing.  A lottery pick.

 

I understand wanting to stack the squad with young guns, hell, I'd love to have a 4th line right now of Sheahan - Jarnkrok - Jurco.

 

But we all have to stop comparing Nyquist, Tatar, etc to guys like Toews, Skinner, Crosby, or even Landeskog and Nichushkin. These guys were all drafted in the top 1-15 spots.




#2455738 Holland Interview

10 minutes long. Worth a listen. Do yourself a favour, it's not quite your typical Kenny-speak.

 

Notes:

 

- he's not in a good mood. you can tell

- possible that Nyquist gets called up as early as tomorrow. "possible"

- says kids aren't the answer, this is a man's league

- makes a decent point: says look at Nyquist and Jurco, etc, they're generating points with tons of PP minutes which they wouldn't be getting in Detroit; says that's a role that young kids have to "grow into"

- when asked about FA signings was careful to point out that we haven't seen enough games out of the full team he built over the summer.

- ended the interview by saying: some of the FA signings haven't performed as well as I expected they would, and that's on me"

 

I suggest you listen to this interview before you start your Holland rants in this thread.

Colder than a witch's teet.




#2454768 11/16 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Islanders 5 (SO)

Posted by rick zombo on 16 November 2013 - 09:38 PM

LOL. They miss the five Islanders on the ice. Then they call Ericsson for a borderline hook. Unreal.

Kronwall looks like he hung out with Rob Ford last night. 




#2453610 Patrick Eaves on Waivers

Posted by rick zombo on 14 November 2013 - 12:41 PM

1. Do we have to explain the Sammy thing every time someone is waived?

 

2. I like Eaves, but he's very replaceable. Just like Emmerton (who I also liked)




#2452427 11/9 GDT: Lightning 3 @ Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by rick zombo on 09 November 2013 - 08:26 PM

If anyone needs me, I'll be over on capgeek fantasizing about next year's team. 




#2452378 11/9 GDT: Lightning 3 @ Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by rick zombo on 09 November 2013 - 07:55 PM

So. I don't have any huge issue with Filpulla going to Tampa. But it annoys me to no end that he seemed to shoot the puck and drive the net more in that first period then he typically did in any 2-3 game stretch last year.

 

:glare:




#2451208 Who is the Most Underappreciated Red Wing?

Posted by rick zombo on 05 November 2013 - 12:25 AM

So far this season? I'm going to go with a healthy Bert. 




#2450721 Let's end the road trip in style!

Winnipeg eh? This should be a Riel good game. :lol:




#2450499 11/2 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Oilers 0

Posted by rick zombo on 03 November 2013 - 01:41 AM

I wasn't expecting much from a B2B game. Helmer looked impressive considering it was his first game back. The third line just rocked tonight. If there is a way to get Smith out of the lineup, then PLEASE Babs, figure that one out. Sammy proved that he is irrelevant on this team and  should be waived/benched until he agrees to waive his NTC. 

 

A healthy Ericsson would do it.

Well beat Vancouver 8-1 but the welfare flames will somehow destroy us
