#2651466 2/8 GDT : Florida Panthers at Detroit Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Posted by NerveDamage on Yesterday, 01:40 PM

D-Boz pic is the best!!  May he never live down his 15-year-old self on YouTube!  ROTFL!!!   It was just a couple of years ago, after all.  :lol:

 

Hate that Green is hurt, and hate more that Kindl is back. And no AA.  :confused:

but, but.... It says AA is centering Tats and Gus on the 3rd line. Dailyfaceoff still puts him in the lineup, can't find anymore info though...

I get what you are saying Lefty, but I don't think Holland is going to sell off all those pieces at the deadline.  We are talking about Ken Holland after all.

Richards and Helm don't see a hell of a lot for the team, trade them both for picks, or move Marchenko or Ouellet in a package to get an established top 4 D in his prime.


#2651372 ROY according to LGW

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 07 February 2016 - 11:50 AM

Panarin is lighting it up at the same rate as Larkin...tied in lighting it up...Panarin has so many more points because he is playing with MVP Kane.  Larkin is playing with Abby and a broken down Zetterberg.  Could you imagine Larkin's points totals if he were also passing the puck off to someone more talented, may someone like Stamkos? I do agree, the "voters" will probably just look at point totals, and not the intagables, but if they looked at his linemates and situations as well, hands down D-Boz :lol: is the ROY. Not withstanding that Larkin leads the NHL at +25, Panarin is only a +10, which basically means Larkin plays more important minutes and in more important situations...

 

Yes but Panera Bread probably won't be the future captain either.

Put Jurco and Pulk with people who can play offense.

Make Helm a check line player again.

Let Larkin play center.

Bench Richards

 

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Abdelakder

Tatar-Larkin-Jurco

Helm-Glendening-Sehahan




#2651157 Should the Red Wings Trade for Byfuglien?

Posted by kickazz on 06 February 2016 - 11:33 AM

People seem to come up with a narrative about how Byfuglien is too fat yet he consistently plays a ton of minutes every night and is arguably better than all of our current defenseman are and ever will be.

Who the hell is D-Boz?




#2651068 Forward Line Combos/Discussion

Posted by VM1138 on 05 February 2016 - 02:56 PM

I like the inclusion of Athanasiou but that lineup still isn't good. Like kip said, we have too many guys who can't actually play strong hockey. It doesn't matter how much they try or how close they are to tearing it up if they never do. What exactly do they expect that fourth line to do? Bigger bodies I guess but none of those guys are energy guys. I've never seen the team take things up a notch because of them.

The third line has potential as an energy line and a scoring threat. Maybe. The second line isn't going to work and we've seen that Datsyuk and Z aren't guaranteed magic together anymore.

We've got to cut a lot of guys who can look good but at the end of the day always *just* miss, screw up passes, and try but never actually do anything possession related.

The problem with the the contracts is the length. What did he expect Mrazek to be the back up for four years?
Holland paid pretty much exact market value for E, Q, Howard and Abby but the length should justify a taking a pay cut minus Q. The Abby contract is ridiculous

Exactly why I think trading Jimmy now and bringing up Coreau wouldn't hurt us in any fashion.  Coreau can come in at his sub $1M contract and start every tail of back to back games and give up 4-6 goals.  Get that cap relief now and have it ready for July instead of over extending your cap and forcing yourself to makes cut in other places that you really don't want to, or getting less value because the rest of the NHL know you have no choice but to deal Howard or waive him (or some other player for relief.)

Good point on Howard - with him we won't win the Cup - without him probably won't change anything except giving us some cap space.

 

With him signed thru the 2018/2019 season - maybe a team like Edmonton might see Howard as an upgrade?

May I ask why? This isn't a cup run year for the Wings and the available players are either rentals or ridiculous pricetags because there isn't a huge market. I mean, would anyone here give up a first rounder for a guy like Komarov ? I know I wouldn't

This team is boring.

 

There's nothing to really get excited about...Yeah - we'll most likely make the playoffs, but chances of getting outta the 1st round will be slim.

 

The direction of the club is questionable...It's getting to the point where I honestly don't feel we'll contend for the Cup anytime in the near future.

 

By no means will a trade likely make us Cup contenders - however after these past few nights - I think a move would be welcomed - to shake things up a bit on the roster.

 

I don't think anyone here is delusional enough to offer up 1st rounders for mediocre talent...Exchanging 'mid level' talent is more what I wouldn't mind seeing, but as usual I won't hold my breath.

Yeah it's looking more and more like our improvements should be coming within. Unless their is a good hockey deal and we make a swap of our smaller wingers for size or D then I'm good to stand pat and try our darnedest to make the playoffs and regroup next year

Larkin and Mrazek our the future. Go from there.

Absolutely amazing design, some goalies really like to go over the top with their design but for whatever reason Howard hardly has any bad design.
