#2521644 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Rivalred on 24 May 2014 - 03:03 PM

I'd like to see Detroit try to move up in the draft to get a top 5 pick since we are in the first half of the draft and not at the end. Edmonton is looking for defensemen and maybe we could put a package together involving Kindl or Smith.


Legwands rights, Kindl, Tootoo, Weiss - let's get it done

Good stuff, fought back the tears at the end...

He has his head down because he was shooting the puck and was focusing on the goal; what is he suppose to have, those side sonar sensors installed they have on vehicles now?

#2521040 Regner: Next year could be Babcock's last

Posted by Rivalred on 18 May 2014 - 10:47 AM

Babcock is the best coach in hockey for sure he won't be around for what looks to be some heavy rebuilding/tooling when contenders are going to offer him a lot of money and the chance to coach some young superstars.

Point being; Babcock is one, if not, one of the best coaches at the present moment and has done far more with less than what other teams have; team needs to strengthen the backend; like a reinforced diaper, to keep that crap contained, otherwise it leaks out everywhere and becomes a big mess.

Holland knows it, Babs knows it, the entire team knows it, all of Detroit and NHL fans know it, even the Eskimo who doesn't have internet and it takes 18 months to get a newspaper from 4 yrs again even knows it.

Posted by Rivalred on 16 May 2014 - 11:33 AM

Anyone else think Bylsma's last name when reading quickly reads "Balsamic"?

I for one would not want a head coach who reminds me of a salad dressing

Crosby found crying in corner after game, only cup he gets this year is his sippy cup.


#2519871 Regner: Next year could be Babcock's last

Posted by Rivalred on 09 May 2014 - 03:08 PM

If no changes are made to make this team competitive I would move on also, Babs has been very polite and respectful regarding the situation, he is all class and will be missed if he moves on... Hollands needs to be aggressive and not a pacifist, if not step down and let someone else take the reigns who will be aggressive and put a solid product out on the ice; he owes it to Pavel, Z, Kronner, and Babs...

I may catch flack for my post, but how I feel

#2518167 Ken Holland Quotes (Apr 29th

Posted by Rivalred on 29 April 2014 - 12:20 PM

This just in, Ken Holland at Meijer, doesn't like the sound of the watermelon after doing the "knock" test, will wait and see how things playout as selection isn't ripe enough or overripe, will talk to Babcock via Kik during the summer


#2517570 The Franzen Hate.

"Girls just want to have fun" song comes to mind when I hear about Franzen; old Mule hang been around for a while, Eyore on the other hand?

Trotz will find a job with no issue; man knows his defense and get the most out of his players


#2488420 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Rivalred on 01 March 2014 - 08:14 PM

Who needs a trade? Weiss and Kindl are ready to go;)

Snipit from the article:

"Daniel Cleary did not practice Saturday due to an unspecified illness. He was limping and needed a cart to get from the dressing room to the parking lot."

Someone say LTIR to clear up more space to acquire someone?


#2488297 Ryan Miller, Steve Ott traded to St. Louis Blues

Posted by Rivalred on 01 March 2014 - 01:03 PM

Blues got stronger quick and this in the long run may benefit Buffalo with the picks as they are trying to rebuild. Good potential for both teams, just quicker results for the Blues and I for one think Milker deserves to have a good team in front of him.
