Anyone know why Larkin’s not attending?

 

Also, strange that Sproul is there but not Marchenko or Ouellet. 


Ferraro re-signed: 1-year $550K (2-way)

25 July 2014 - 10:43 AM

Worth it's own thread perhaps, but mostly a "meh" signing?

 

The price is right: 1 year, 2 way, 550k.

Too bad the ill-tempered blockhead from Colorado has this locked up.

 

 


Shooting The Puck

28 March 2014 - 02:00 PM

Lost in all the chaos of injuries and trying to make the playoffs, it just hit me:

 

We've got some forwards that can shoot the puck.

 

Nyquist

Tatar

Sheahan

Jurco

Pulkinen (if all goes well)

Mantha (ditto)

 

+ Z and Mule, and sometimes Datsyuk

 

Pretty cool eh?

 

I think the last time we had 4 forwards that could legitimately shoot the puck was in 2009 with Hossa, Z, Hudler, Mule.

 

I wonder if someday the Wings might stop constanly going back to the point in the O-zone hoping for a deflection or a screen from the ghost of Holmstrom.

 

More realistically, maybe this will someday put an end to the following combination of words: power play. Bertuzzi. net front.


Eaves and Glendening Recalled: Emmerton Sent Down

13 December 2013 - 01:51 PM

Per Official Detroit Red Wings (via Facebook)

 

Sorry, no link. My Interwebs are partially broken.

 

Glenfiddich most likely to replace Emmerton on the forth line. I wonder if Eaves is in for Sammy, Cleary or Bert?
