#2547699 Red Wings Central Closing Down (completely) Nov. 7th

Posted by drumnj on 06 November 2014 - 07:05 PM

Back in September Matt (different Matt) said he was no longer doing articles and write-ups on prospects on Red Wings Central.  At the time he said that the forums would stay up, but a week ago he posted that they were being closed as well.  I didn't see anything posted here about it, HFboards had a farewell thread at the time.  I do have to say it was one of the better assesment sites for Wings prospects, especially the rankings.


Some of you may be familiar with the forums there, as it was pretty laid back...well since there was little to no moderation (so quite the opposite as here).  I would assume he's going to dedicate all his time to CapGeek (if you didn't know a Wings fan runs it) and everything will be pretty much frozen in time.  Just thought a post here wouldn't hurt as we are losing an exclusively Red Wings blog/news/forum site.

nice to see Alex Chiasson following in dads footsteps. He was 10, I believe when Steve died.

That was a sad day. I always liked Steve when he was with the Wings.

This coming from the guy who tried to get that whole "Deisel" thing going? Aka "the worst nickname ever".  You're trying to hard.


Those other three guys have earned nick-names. Mule came from Yzerman himself. You are not Yzerman, and Nestrasil is no Franzen. He's slightly better than Emmerton. Emdog - another horrible moniker btw.

Nesty comes from Babcock himself... 


But I guess nicknames = serious business.

I was just commenting on the user who said put Franzen in and we will be dangerous.  I simply said Franzen would not make a difference when he comes back and if he isn't going to make a difference it would suck to bump a more deserving player out of the lineup. I guess the answer lies when he does come back if he can go back to what he was doing.  I hope he does.  He, Z and Nyquist were gelling together pretty good.  I will welcome that back as long as it doesn't screw up the rest of the lines.  Lets hope he returns and becomes the offense and the PP cure.  I hope he is, but I still am on record saying that he won't be.
Anyhow, lets not turn this nice win into a Franzen debate! :lol: It was nice to see our guys playing together and getting some chemistry going.  Still not impressed with E or K.  Q looked alright.

I feel like this is to my "give me a healthy franzen post" and can't help but wonder why Im just "the user" lol

Apparently If franzen doesn't give us 300 hits, 35 goals and 65 points per year he isn't worth his massive 3.9M cap hit

Okay, you know a thread has gone astray when you don't even know what the actual topic is without looking at the title again.  Let's get back to that, shall we?

Franzen needs to toughen up. Too many injuries for a guy of his stature. "Franzen is in great shape" all preseason. For what? A croquet match? He gets a bruise and he's out of the lineup. Its disturbing.

:lol: Hockeytown, I see what you did there!
Praying Mantha, the whole point of "our" GDT is to enjoy the creative genius of the few guys that put all the effort into it.  We appreciate the link to "all the data we need" but its just not the same.  It's also not a race to see who can get the GDT thread up first.  Again, it's well worth the wait to enjoy the creative efforts of the "regular's." No offense, but do you see what I am saying?
That being said, I hope Dats is 100% and doesn't reinjure his shoulder! Lets go Wings!

Totally! No one had signed up, so I made a point in the Datsyuk thread to just delete my post if someone comes up with something wicked. I am in total awe and respect of Flashy G, Hockeytown, and others' Game Day Threads. I just put something up cuz it looked as if no one else was going to. No disrespect to you or anyone else. Just a noon here who likes to talk a little wings hockey!

another quick word on Glenny. His emergence along with Sheahan's would allow us to offer Helm in a deal for something we need. While Helm still has value. This team doesn't need all three, especially when Dats comes back to take up another center spot. Nothing personal against Helm...


Yeah right  :glare:

Another soliddddddddddd game by Glendenning.
Anyone else willing to admit babs was right about that little spark plug?

And please.
No jokes or puns because I used the word plug.
Because dude is legit one of the best fourth line centers around.

I kept saying it two years ago but we should have traded Helm before people figured out he was just a smaller more injury prone Kris Draper.
