#2596470 Oilers win the Draft Lottery

Posted by kliq on 18 April 2015 - 09:59 PM

I wonder what the reaction would be if he pulled a Lindros and refused to report? I actually wouldn't hold it against him.

That must be Toad The Wet Sprocket.

#2592174 Brendan Smith

Posted by barabbas16 on 11 April 2015 - 07:37 AM

Kindl and Smith haven't panned out. Ericsson has been a decent profit considering where we drafted him. He should probably be traded but he isn't a bust. We kind of need all three of Marchenko, Sproul and Oullette to turn out great because trading for defenseman of quality is nearly impossible these days. And we have to admit that they will all need to be in the lineup soon, so Holland needs to make space.


I wonder if Jensen will get a look in Detroit next year.  The rest of those guys will still be waiver exempt, won't they?

Brendan smith doesn't have a longterm future in detroit especially with marchenko ouellet jensen sproul waiting to get a shot

He could very possibly be dealt to toronto this off season in a deal for Phaneuf ... Just watching yesterday's hockeycentral and there saying Phaneuf wanted to be a wing and was feeling like s*** when he wasn't dealt to the wings on deadline day

Anyway you look at it smith will be gone in 1-2 yrs


The problem is that, when they were prospects,  we were looking at Smith (and Kindl) with the same wide-eyed reverence that we now place on these other prospects you mentioned. No one knows if any of these four players will be good enough to take Smith's job.

What frustrates me most about Smith is he'll occasionally have a good stretch of games and then right when you start thinking along the lines of "okay, looks like he could be trending toward the solid defenseman we hoped he would" and then he'll have a couple bad games and regress right back to me not being a fan of his play..

I understand everyone goes through growing pains and all that but, at what point does the inconsistency stop being considered "growing pains" and become just a part of who that player is?

Who knows. I'm still waiting for Ericsson to grow out of some of his "growing pains."

I'm in the camp that wants us to get rid of Smith. He's dumb. I've said that for years and it's still the case. Trade him while they still are seen as growing pains.

Woohoo...I've won the internet! First thing I'm doing is getting rid of all the cat pictures and every reference to any Kardashian.

#2592081 Definition of a real fan

Posted by WingsAlways on 10 April 2015 - 02:43 PM

A real fan?


You stick by your team through the good and the ugly, I sometimes wonder if some people on this forum remember the "Dead Wings" era. I loved this team during the dark 80's, was spoiled in the 90's, and will watch them lose before I dare root for another team. Am I a "real fan"? I don't know but I'm a Red Wings fan.

Being in the playoffs for the 24th consecutive year should feel better than this.

Or from Franzen.  

#2590609 Team next season?

I hope the defence looks something like this:


Kronwall - 

Dekeyser - Quincey 

-              -

#2590014 Helene St. James says Howard starts and Z and Pavel reunited

Posted by Son of a Wing on 07 April 2015 - 01:29 PM

This is GREAT news if indeed he is in! Pav and Z together make a world of difference! Wonder who the other winger will be? How about Pulkkamania?



Z - Pav - Pulk

Nyquist - Weiss - Helm

Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco

Miller - Glenden - Ferrari



...I believe Helm will be up front, no matter, putting Pulk with Weiss/Gus, could be a good line too!


Lines have already come out...


Helm  -  Datsyuk  -  Zetterberg

Nyquist  -  Sheahan  -  Tatar

Weiss  -  Andersson  -  Pulkkinen

Miller  -   Glendening  -  Ferraro

Boston has road games vs Wash,Fla, and TB.
Ott has Pitt, NY, and Philly
Pitt has Ott, NYI, and Buff
Wings have Car, Mont, Car.

Wings have the best chance to come up with 2 wins
