#2623513 Getting bigger.

Posted by Rivalred on 19 August 2015 - 11:42 AM

Franzen was a beast in front of the net back in the day and took a serious beating. He was the last true power forward we had even though he didn't fight which imo doesn't make somebody a power forward

Homer took a beating in front of the next and along the boards more than Franzen

Just wanted to point this out.... Don't know if Franzen can be labeled a power forward

#2623191 Abdelkader entering contract year, possible $4M extension?

Posted by Rivalred on 16 August 2015 - 12:41 PM

So because he is from Michigan he automatically gets to cash in? I love Abby, he plays hard and is versatile, but I don't think he is worth 4 million unless he can string together. Few solid seasons.

Hate to see another bad contract....

I just don't get the mentally on paying someone on their future potential instead of their previous track record.

Indeed.  It seems that saying stupid things for "publicity" is his mutant power.

#2619722 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by Rivalred on 08 July 2015 - 09:28 PM

I'm glad to have the guy on our team and all but I've saw him fight. He does not deserve to wear McCarty's number.
If it was me, I'd pick #50.

And Nyquist has the right to wear number 14? Sheesh

#2618666 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Posted by Rivalred on 02 July 2015 - 10:18 AM

This doesn't bode well for Holland getting rid of Kindl like I hoped.

Blashill also likes Kindl's abilities and wants to give him a chance to resurrect his career here.

You just made my day a little worse. Amazing how this team is too patient with some players and not enough with others.

#2615534 Free agents this off season

Posted by Rivalred on 20 June 2015 - 10:43 PM

The run he had in 2013 showed he is capable of being a star. Will he hit his ceiling.....only time will tell.

Team needs to become stronger on the back end for our forwards to be forwards and focus on offense, the last few yrs focus has been defense for everyone, we need more offense from defense and better transition
