Well obviously unlike Brunnstrom Clowe has an established history of producing in the NHL. Not a fan of his but I wouldn't be angry if we acquired or signed him.


Sample size without goals: 28 games

Sample size with goals: one game


Yep, he has a history of scoring... that is, less than 20 goals per season. He is also one of the dumbest players in the league, and certainly one of the least disciplined.

#2379811 Shocking, Wings aren't active as trade deadline expires

Posted by Echolalia on 03 April 2013 - 05:33 PM

There are only a few ways to get players onto a hockey team.  Draft them, acquire them through free agency, pick them up off waivers, trade for them.  Only one of these options requires you lose something (RFA also I suppose, but that's still a rarity in this league).  The salary cap makes draft picks, prospects, and roster players that much more valuable, so trades are that much less desirable an option to collect players for your team.  I understand that its frustrating to get your hopes up every trade deadline expecting to land some star, but in today's hockey league its more important than ever to be economic.  That means developing your talent, holding onto your picks, and making big roster changes through free agency, not through trades.  Its boring, but its also a smart way to go.


I'm in the minority which believes Holland did not make a mistake this deadline by not making any moves.

But, not the present...lol..


With all the injuries we have every game, I am pretty pleased with were we are at right now.

Dude, +1 for the Simpsons reference


What's this? "Extremely High Voltage"? Well, I don't need safety gloves, because I'm Homer Simp--

Posted by F.Michael on 27 March 2013 - 12:18 PM

I dont see how that could ever work.



Iginla is one of the best players to ever wear the flamed C on their chest, so I am sure they would welcome him back. Anyway, Wings aren't on his list so maybe time to close this thread now?

Din758 take a look at Grimey's post...Pretty much sums it all up.

#2374665 Red Wings lead NHL in man-games lost to injury

Speaks volumes on our prospects, character of our team, and most importantly our coaching staff. I tip my hat off to the crew for making something out of this team. At the beginning of the season, people thought this was the year we would finally feel the transition stages. From the injuries we've endured and losing Lidstrom, Rafi, and Stuart on the backend.. wow... can't even complain about this team.

One of those days as a Wings fan that you will never forget like the cup win in 97

Best part-it was McCarty that did both.

Brian Burke is currently trying to convince Bob Murray to trade two #1's & a 2nd to the Gophers for her.

Agreed. Not sure the cost is worth it for an aging Iginla, even with the intrigue of Datsyuk as a linemate.


I will still likely put together some unrealistic proposals in the upcoming "Iginla thread".  I welcome others to do the same.

I'll give you a +1 despite getting the years wrong :tounge:


Oopsies. My hands were still shaking a bit...

Glad we got 4 points, Jimmy was great.  But please, don't kid yourselves, for the better part of these two games it was all Anaheim.


And for the better part of the 2003 series against the Ducks and the 2004 series against the Flames, it was all Detroit. But we lost those. A win is a win is a win.


Edit: Fixed the dates.

Wow getzlaf and perry showing emotion. I wish we had guys that showed half of that.

I will take Z and Datsyuk losing with dignity any day over those two whiners.

Should we send him over using your SAMSUNG-SGH-I317?
