#2626964 9/23 Exhibition GDT : at Red Wings 4, Chicago Blackhawks 1

Posted by kickazz on 23 September 2015 - 11:12 PM


That would technically make Nyquist - Sheahan - Franzen the third line. Daaaaamn. 

Yeah, I'm starting to think that might be okay. Would you disagree?


Unless they try


Tatar- Richards - Nyquist


Jurco - Sheahan - Franzen 


I know Nyquist/Tatar haven't worked as well in the past but it might work with Richards for whatever reason.

#2623201 Red Wings Sign D Robbie Russo

Posted by T.Low on 16 August 2015 - 03:13 PM

Article from Chicago area regarding Russo

"Unlike Hawks prospect Ryan Hartman, a West Dundee, Ill. native, and Hawks backup goaltender Scott Darling, a Lemont, Ill. native, Russo did not grow up a Hawks fan despite the proximity to the team. Russo was a Red Wings fan growing up, according to Second City Hockey staff writer Ryan Hood, who attended high school with him for two years."

If Franzem retires he doesn't get paid. If he sits on IR he does. It's to his advantage to not retire.


Yeah, that too. Whatever happens, it's very unlikely he'll retire so I don't think we'll have to worry about the penalties is all I was trying to say.

If Brian McGrattan had a nickel for every time he's had his ass kicked, he'd be $infinity in debt.

Looks like Z won't spend any time at center anymore

Posted by F.Michael on 30 June 2015 - 02:15 PM


Pretty much.  6 years at $5.75 mill AAV.


Why couldn't Boston get this done??

Apparently Bruins GM Sweeney doesn't want anyone on the roster making more $$$ than what he did while playing...Chara - you're next!

#2615515 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by Helmethead on 20 June 2015 - 05:37 PM

Realistically Kenny signs or trades for a top 4 dman. Marchenko plays with Quincey on the 3rd pair. I just don't see the Wings as legit contenders with Ericsson on the 1st pair.

#2615352 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Wings likely to make a deal on draft day.

Yeah. I'm counting on them to draft some players and that's about it. Unless you can provide a link or something that says otherwise?

#2614428 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by krsmith17 on 15 June 2015 - 07:49 AM

They didn't "drop the ball" on anything... They refused to trade him, for good reason, and they're not all of a sudden trying to trade him. Mantha isn't going anywhere. He will get another season in Grand Rapids and likely push for a spot in Detroit in 2016-17. My bet is he scores at or close to a point per game next season for the Griffins. People are acting like he's a bust after one season of pro... :wacko:

#2614139 Free agents this off season

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 12 June 2015 - 01:29 PM

I'd give Franson upwards of around $4.5-5M on a 3 year contract. I think that is the ballpark for salary, I just think he will likely be looking for more term... Franson would be an immediate upgrade to our top 4. I'd consider going $4.5 x 5 years...

I really dont like his footspeed, and he looked so out of place on Nashville.
5Years is a long time to carry a player if we find out he was just a product of the terrible system and big minutes in Toronto.

Not interested in the football, but thanks.

Thanks for your opinion on the recordings, but I have to disagree. People have recorded games for years and trade copies all the time. I know many people that have thousands of games. I'm just looking to upgrade some of my collection.

The NFL would frown upon people selling copies of games and making a profit.

I don't like bacon.  There.  I said it.  The fascination escapes me.  *whew*  I feel so much better now.

I don't like sausage, ham, or pepperoni either.

#2609478 Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

Posted by Richdg on 21 May 2015 - 02:39 PM

Glad he is begining his pro hockey career. Give him a nice taste of what it is like. But let's not go overboard. The step from amatuer hocey to pro hockey is huge. Mantha reminded us of that agian this year. Let him develop on his pace, not ours as fans. If he goes to GR and dominates, GREAT! If it takes him a season or 2 to develop, no problem.

Holtby could be getting some consideration for Conn Smythe. 


Not after Patrick Kane gets a hold of him.
