#2586357 Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

Posted by Barrie on 28 March 2015 - 08:27 PM

The thing about the Cap, there's a lot of good teams, no great teams. Anyone can win in the playoffs.

I just tried it, Buffalo won.

#2583620 The Futures of Tatar & Nyquist

Posted by Barrie on 20 March 2015 - 09:32 PM

I wouldn't think twice about losing Hudler and Filppula. The majority of Wings fans wanted Hudler gone after 2010-11, and Filppula is over paid. I think Tatar and Nyquist will be better players then them, if they aren't already are.

#2576482 Going To My First Wings Game - Suggestions?

Posted by Barrie on 01 March 2015 - 08:51 AM

A suggestion, make sure you pee before the game, the bathroom lines at the Joe are huge!

#2576480 Once again blowing a lead and giving up 3 goals

Posted by Barrie on 01 March 2015 - 08:45 AM

We were playing Western Conference teams in their buildings, no lead is safe. Give the Wings credit for going 4-1-1 on this road trip! This road trip proved we can beat every team in the League.


If we were blowing leads at home, then worry.

#2569821 Manny Legace joins concussion lawsuit..

Posted by Barrie on 11 February 2015 - 01:29 PM

I don't think this lawsuit is a joke. Hockey for years was using violence and head shots to promote their game.


I do give the NHL credit for cleaning up the game. I don't miss the fights at all, especially after I read about the physical pain McCarty is experiencing now after years of fighting. It's not worth it.

Draper and Lemieux on the same ice.... I don't care if McCarty has made up with Lemieux, he'll always be scum to me.

His only goal.



#2567685 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by Barrie on 01 February 2015 - 02:50 PM

My condolences to those people that wanted to tank this year, we're too good.


Hate to say I told you so, but I was one of the few who stood by Holland and was made fun of, I guess we were right. Usually when an organization loses franchise players like Yzerman and Lidstrom, it takes 10-20 years to recover. This has to be one of the best rebuilds on the fly ever.

I'm still steaming as well. I absolutely still feel that the NHL did what they could to help Pittsburgh over the top in 2009. It's just a shame we were so beat up because it wouldn't have even been a contest if we were just a bit healthier.


I agree, I think the League did everything they could to help Pittsburgh win in 2009. There was also Game 6 when the refs forgot how to count to 6.


I know a lot of NFL fans are crying "fix" with some of the weird calls the last 2 weeks, but I think the NHL is a lot worse when it comes to weird things going on with their officials. Bettman is a dictator if you ask me.


Anyway, I think Ozzie should be in the Hall of Fame no question. He had 400+ career wins, and was one of the best big game goalies of his era behind Brodeur and Roy. Ozzie was more clutch then Belfour and Hasek.

#2553018 Doggone it Danny Cleary

Posted by Barrie on 30 November 2014 - 07:09 PM


If I go back to the thread of when he was signed, I guarantee you that is not the case. I would post examples, but I don't want to turn this into what I hate.


Right, there was a lot of people upset when Cleary was signed. I didn't see how a 1 year $1.5 Million deal for a guy who's done a lot for the organization was a bad move. It's better for Cleary to be a healthy scratch then a young player who can get playing time in Grand Rapids. It allows Cleary to leave the game with his head held high, instead of being kicked to the curb. Also it shows the Red Wings are a classy organization.

#2552417 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by Barrie on 28 November 2014 - 04:08 PM

The thing with a cap, there isn't a dominating team. Every team has holes with talent spread out. On paper, we're probably not a major contender, but we're consistently outshooting the opposition, and Howard's playing well.

#2544258 Myers close to become a wing?

Posted by Barrie on 24 October 2014 - 03:21 PM

As already mentioned, with Smith and Nyquist up for new contracts, I'm not sure how we can fit Myers under the cap. Unless we can get rid of Kindl and Weiss's contracts, we've don't have room.

#2544257 Lines Thread

Posted by Barrie on 24 October 2014 - 03:16 PM

My only complaint so far is that Tatar should get more ice time. Other than that, I like the decisions Babs had made. I think sitting Weiss has been the right move too.
