#2635184 So who were the Wings scouting ?

Posted by rick zombo on 04 November 2015 - 02:41 PM

Realistically? Probably just advance scouting in preparation for the Leafs game this Friday.


But let's go with the Fowler thing because that would be awesome.

#2635168 Play Coach - When do you pick a goalie

Posted by rick zombo on 04 November 2015 - 02:15 PM

The answer to this awesome question, I believe, is this: when's the expansion draft?

#2633341 Brad Richards out 1-2 weeks

Richards out might help

#2631956 Is Dylan Larkin a lock to stay in the NHL beyond 9-games?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 October 2015 - 08:09 AM

YA!!!! I didn't even notice the 10,000! Yippee! I am going to go back and edit it to mention all my favorite mentions!


I know the post was pretty vague, and pretty much how most people feel, but I just can't see him going down with the way he is playing... Of course, Holland can and usually does surprise us with his doings!


It's quite an accomplishment.  Many people didn't think you'd make it this far.   :lol:

#2631658 10/17 GDT: Detroit Red Wings @ Montreal Canadiens, 7:00 EST

Is the NHL situation room even watching this game? The question wasn't whether or not the puck entered in a legal fashion - it was that Petr Mrazek was effing knocked over and couldn't make the save. 


Strange how the rule book keeps changing whenever Detroit plays. 

#2630966 I think this might be finally it for the Mule, Sadly

I don't remember him even getting hit in the two games he played.  No surprise really.  From reading his quotes in the offseason, it didn't sound like he had any business playing.

I don't disagree about Larkin having his own line, or playing around with Richards on the wing.  We obviously need to have three lines going offensively.  It's only going to make us that much more offensively potent.  But I'm not sure that I agree our goals haven't come on high quality scoring chances.  Both of Zetterberg's goals have been finesse plays.  Larkin's was a pure snipe.  Abby's one timer was off an awfully creative play from Zetterberg.  It's definitely too early to tell how things will end up, but if we're scoring at a high percentage now, I can't imagine how it will change much when Tatar, Richards, Green, Nyquist, Franzen, etc. start contributing regularly.  We're only going to get MORE offensive and we're currently top ten in goals per game (not that it matters much given how few games we've played). 

#2630800 McDavid with a dirty hit not called.

Posted by WingsAlways on 14 October 2015 - 04:26 PM

the worst part of the non call is that the ref was just feet away and was looking right at it. He put his whistle towards his lips and then stopped. I think that the hit was maybe, in his judgment, far enough away from the wall that he didn't slam into it hard enough, he also jumped right back up and got in the play. That being said, it was directly from behind, in the numbers and near the boards. Maybe Dallas should send the video to the league and get their ruling.


The ref probably thought about it but hesitated because it was the league's new golden boy, It sounds like the tin foil hat in me talking but one has to wonder what goes through their minds. It's horses*** if you ask me.


Isn't this why the coach's challenge is being implemented? (I don't fully understand it yet) If I was Lindy Ruff I would have taken a $10k fine before I remained quiet about that.

Anyone that watched this game would have to be absolutely  f***in  crazy to suggest Larkin would have been better off in GRs.

I'm glad I picked Abby in my fantasy league.


Picked Abs, Larkin, Z, and Howard in a $.25 draftkings contest. Currently sitting 4th which pays $50.

Jurco and Mrazek look like they could be brothers.
And marchenko looks like a vampire.

Vlad the impaler?
Man the fans jizzed all over Larkin.
