#2525539 Alfie informs Wings he wants to return

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 24 June 2014 - 06:59 PM

Irrelevant. Pointless based on their lack of knowledge. Not to be taken seriously




Irrelevant  (ibreve.gif-rebreve.giflprime.gifschwa.gif-vschwa.gifnt): Not pertinent to the point.  Not relating to the subject.



Here's another one:


Unwise (ubreve.gifn-wimacr.gifzprime.gif): being a smartass to a moderator who is politely telling you to stop insulting other people here simply because you disagree with their opinion. 



Now let's get back to making posts relevant to this the topic.

What's to stop Chris Chelios?

#2524436 Dan Boyle's rights traded to the Islanders…..

Posted by number9 on 18 June 2014 - 01:22 PM

Neither was Jurco...or Sheahan.  Yet they both made us more difficult to play against than all the mediocre old hacks in the world. 

I eyeball tested Sproul, and he's not ready, trust me

#2524166 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

I'm ok with this if he plays for free and doesn't play.

#2520559 Shero & Bylsma Fired

Posted by rick zombo on 14 May 2014 - 11:57 PM

While I would think that hilarious to see Shero and Bylsma out the door, I'm secretly wishing they stay. It's become blatantly obvious that they won't win with those two at the helm, so why shouldn't we hope they keep their jobs?

I swear to holy hell, I was just thinking this exact thing. 

#2509971 Gus & Tatar almost traded to Calgary per McKenzie

Posted by WingedWheel91 on 16 April 2014 - 07:53 AM

I don't know why everyone is up in arms over this report.


At the time of the trade, April 1st 2013 - the Blue traded a 1st round draft pick, 22 year old Defense prospect Mark Cundari, and 26 year old Swiss league goalie Reto Berra for Bouwmeester.


In hindsight, I agree we certainly offered a better package with players who are contributing at a much higher level today - but understand that at the time of the trade, Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar had combined for less than 10 points to that point in the season, on a team that was not in a playoff position. From a Calgary perspective, they probably questioned how much these undersized forwards would help them battle within their very tough division.


Did Feaster take the right deal? In hindsight, obviously not. But I'm sure at the time of the trade, with the market for Defenseman as bad as it was/is, there would have been more than a handful of members on this site who would have been on board. Funny how it works.

One the own hand, good to know he actually went after Bouwmeester. On the other hand, YEEOW that was a close one!

If this is true - which it may not be - it shows how little Ken Holland really knows/believes in his prospects. Jarnkrok is killing it over in NSH and these two are playing amazing in Detroit. You can't just go offering up young players as trade bait before you see what they can do in the NHL - its stupid. If Jarnkrok had put up 9 points in 12 games in Detroit prior to the trade his value would have been much higher and he would be valued similar to Sheahan currently. Bottom line - give prospects a legitimate NHL chance to solidify their value before you go and ship them off.

Posted by darkmanx on 10 April 2014 - 06:39 AM

Quick, trade him while he still has value....

#2506960 The forgotten lines

Posted by Nevermind on 07 April 2014 - 10:46 AM

Of those 8 forwards, only Zetterberg is guaranteed a spot when he's ready.


If someone gets injured, Andersson will most likely be inserted into the lineup. Then Bertuzzi would probably be next in line. But barring another rash of injuries, I don't think any other forwards will see ice time from here on out.

#2477009 Red Wings Puck Cases

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 25 January 2014 - 02:15 AM

I have never personally bought any autographed Wings pucks, but I have a few that I got signed in person while having the rare pleasure of meeting some of the players. 


Brendan Shanahan - 1997 Cup Champion Puck

Steve Yzerman - Official Game Puck

Chris Osgood - Official Game Puck

Pavel Datsyuk - Graphic Red Wings Puck

Slava Kozlov - Atlanta Thrashers Practice Puck


I felt like Kozlov was honorable mention as a former Wing, I used to live in Atlanta and went to Thrashers practice a lot. There was literally 5-7 fans there at most so there was always an opportunity to meet, talk to, and get autographs from players. This particular day he flipped me a practice puck and I got him to sign it afterwards. Luckily for me, I also received another one and got Kovalchuk to sign one side and Hossa to sign the other. It was a great experience with a few former Wings and a superstar. 


Datsyuk and Osgood came from an opportunity to get back next to the locker room after a home game, my best friends grandmother was on a health decline and her daughter (My friends mother) had contacted the JLA executives saying it was one of her final wishes to be able to meet Chris Osgood. He agreed, met with us, signed a bunch of stuff, took some pictures and spent a solid 30 minutes hanging out. Datsyuk just kind of showed up with a big smile on his face, gave her a big hug and signed a bunch of stuff for us also, it was incredible. She has since passed away and was buried with her autographed Osgood jersey. 

#2476516 1/24 GDT: Canadiens 1 at Red Wings 4

Wings win 11-1. Price is kept in net the whole game, demands trade to Colorado. Everything old is new again.

#2475280 What Are You Playing?

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 22 January 2014 - 04:23 AM

Titanfall should be out soon; I think March. I'm really looking forward to that game for a new kind of shooter. Also another shooter coming out later this year that I'm looking forward to:






Err, hmm, I mean:



#2473107 Buffalo Sabres unveil new third jerseys

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 15 January 2014 - 12:12 PM

Just saw these live for the first time last night playing Philly. Wow. I'm convinced these guys continuously hire people that failed out of graphic design school to come up with all these jersey schemes they have.


It goes along with most of the decisions the Sabres seem to make. 


The logo for their third jersey should be a team tanking for a draft pick.
