#2671901 Fixing this mess....

Zetterberg should be joining them as part of their playoff run.  Maybe he'll be a beast in some playoffs again.  

 
Isn't a GM supposed to be more forward looking than fans and have better instincts?  Yes, any fan back then would have kept Franzen over Hossa, but Holland gets paid the big bucks we don't to make moves we wouldn't be smart enough to make.  


Not this fan. But that's an old debate! :lol:

I have never really had a problem with you man but what the f*** you talking about lol. I'm no mod but I see nothing wrong with what he said.

Anyways I'll probably be watching game 5 for #13 only.
Also, Wings Twitter saying they'll win in 7 now. Like please god no. Don't put that out there..


It's fine. I was generalizing our Swedish players, but I guess it came off like I was generalizing all Swedish players. My mistake for not calling them out by name.

Does anyone still think Holland knows what he's doing? He has done nothing to make this team better in a long time. Blashill is in over his head. Not unless he is being told who to play...maybe that's why Babcock left.

If they score on this, Ericsson would've played his last game as a red wing if this were my team.

And just like tgat, E isf****** DONE!

Not enough heart to be the next grind line


I'm not so sure. Those three seem to be playing with the most heart. Just got to keep them together so they can grow together.

This could be Pav's last game at the Joe. Guess The Wings don't realize this? Z is a horrible leader.

Game over.

You guys can call me whatever you want, but our Swedes are horrible. Everytime something bad happens they are on the ice. Get rid of all of them.

They all got their money and are taking the rest of their careers off.

No changes tonight, wouldn't mind seeing AA get some powerplay time.

Abby, DO NOT wear any tape tonight. Fight Boyle. Win or lose, you must stand up to this guy. Let's call it the Probert rule. Kick his ass or get yours kicked, doesn't matter. You're tougher than he is anyway.

Still not enough AA. Blashill needs to unleash the Krakenasiou.

No changes in lineup for Tuesday please.

My sister (who is going through chemo) and my nephew flew to Detroit yesterday for the game. I'm hoping the Wings play their hearts out so that everyone wearing the winged-wheel can leave The Joe smiling, high-fiving, and feeling great!

Go Wings!!!

 

God Bless your sister to a speedy recovery! I hope she can get some enjoyment tonight!

 

that being said, I certainly hope to see significant lineup and line changes tonight.

 

I haven't seen anything of Mantha being called up, so there goes that but here are my changes:

 

Smith in for Ericsson....Jurco in for Andersson...Mrazek in for Howard...Pulkkinen in for Nyquist.

 

Tatar - Larkin - Athanasiou

Helm - Richards - Jurco

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Abdelkader

Pulkkinen - Sheahan - Glendening

 

Dekeyser - Smith

Kronwall - Green

KFQ - Marchenko

 

Those are my changes and lines to start the game.

 

Wings win 4-2.....no changes, Wings lose 5-1...

I agree, there are going to be tons of upset users here WHEN Holland doesn't do anything to better or change this team.

 

He won't trade Ericcson, Smith, Pulk, Jurco or Howard.  He'll re-sign Helm to Abby money and term, he'll re-sign KFQ to $5M, DD to $6M, Mrazek to $5M and as soon as he hears from Dats he"ll resign Richards as insurance.  Of course he won't trade Dats contract either.

 

All kidding aside, the nightmare is, there is a possibility that this team would be EXACTLY the same next year...and possibly minus Datsyuk.

Posted by LeftWinger on 16 April 2016 - 11:04 PM

I don't blame him. At least Holland won't re-sign him to a loyalty contract.

...hey Joakim, can you take a couple more Swedes with you? Ericsson and Nyquist to be exact...

Didn't watch a single minute of it...had such a great night instead of watching pee wee league game. Retire Z...retire.
