Ritchie, Tuch, Perlini, Larkin one of those 4 pls stay the hell away from guys like Ehlers, Barbashev. If they pick him might as well throw the pick away because he will go to the khl if things arent going his way Also enough with the small soft euros need some hometown boys and size and grit

#2525576 Alfie informs Wings he wants to return

Posted by Richdg on 24 June 2014 - 08:39 PM

If people don't like my opinions, I couldn't care less. We do all have one thing in common: We want the RW's to win SC's. That simple. The fact is our record has gotten worse every year for the past 4 seasons. The answer being provided to us is: bring everyone back and expect better results. Nothing works like that.

#2518429 Wings will buy out Tootoo, not Franzen.

Can we buy out Holland instead?

#2517198 ECQF - Game 5 - Red Wings at Bruins - 3:00 PM EST

Posted by frankgrimes on 26 April 2014 - 05:01 PM


Holland wanted answers he has them now:


Team needs to get bigger, meaner, tougher and still younger.


Re-sign Dekeyser, Monster (if he wants) and bring in defensive help plus 2 enforcers.



Mule, Alfie, Legwand, Bertuzzi, Miller ......



sign someone like Jagr, Selanne...


play the young kids add toughness and look hard at the Boston model that's the way to build a playoff winner.


Boston is the team coming out of the east and hopefully they are facing someone not name Blackhawks

#2514153 ADQF | Game 3 | Boston 3 @ Detroit 0, BOS leads series 2-1

Posted by IndianaRedWing on 22 April 2014 - 09:57 PM

He didn't have to shut them out in Game 2.  The Wings made it a 2-1 game and Howard lets in a somewhat soft goal late in the second period to totally deflate the team.  How different would that game have looked only down 1 goal and the team skating well.  That is what I meant  by the timing of the goals.


So much denial here. Howard didn't kill the Wings' chance to win tonight. From the opening faceoff, the Wings never gave themselves a chance.


When you score 2 goals in 3 games and you *aren't* facing elimination in game 4, there's a good chance that your goalie is your series MVP. Not because he's necessarily been lights out, but because everyone has been worse.


And even then, it's not enough. Apparently, there's widespread belief that Howard has to keep track of when his teammates are having, ahh, that time of month. He has to wear the pants on the team.


Okie dokie. 


It's unbelievable that people think the team that's showed up for the first 3 games could legitimately compete for the cup, but for Howard. Whatever makes the loss easier to take, I guess. It's probably better than booze.

#2510056 Poking the Bear

Posted by frankgrimes on 16 April 2014 - 03:28 PM

Poking the bear and not having an enforcer ? Thats probably the stupidest thing one can do if the Wings are getting involved into the rough stuff this will become a blood bad. Only the Blues, Leafs, Flames ( Lucic wouldn't even look at his gloves with McGrattan in the lineup...)and maybe Kings can afford to go into the rough stuff with the big Bear but for sure not the Wings.


The only chance to get a win against this team is to keep the pedal on the gas by using the youths speed other than that the Bruins aren't having a weakness :(

Let's give props to one of the heroes of this game: Brendan Smith has gone from goat to freaking anchor. Superior mobility, speed, puck handling...he's finally emerged as someone we can count on. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

"@AnsarKhanMLive: Bertuzzi is out for tomorrow with lower body injury. Day to day. Tootoo recalled, Holland said."

#2479715 Cory Emmerton waived

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 01 February 2014 - 06:58 PM

A lot of dicks on this forum. Kid played his role and didn't ***** when he was yo-yo'ed back and forth with the minors. He might not be the most amazing player by any stretch of the imagination, but at least he shows up, shuts up and does his job.

I'm more appreciative of what he's done for this team, as little as it may be, than I am of what Cleary and Sammy have done this season (which is even less).

But, then again, he doesn't score 20 goals with 5 minutes of ice time, so he's a mediocre piece of garbage....who makes league minimum I might add, not 1.7M or 3M.

We need a legitimate enforcer and a scoring powerforward imo. A powerforward is virtually impossible but I would settle for a skilled hard working guy like Callahan, Dubinsky or Matthias. The latter is perhaps a possibility as he seems to struggle a bit lately.

Matthias has been on my wishlist for a couple seasons now.. He's young, affordable, works hard, and can win faceoffs. I'd love to add him.

@AnsarKhanMLive: Daniel Cleary said he lost 10 teeth when hit by puck in Florida. Missed only a few shifts. Will spend some time in dentist's chair tomorrow.

not sure if its the site you are referring to, but according to behindthenet.ca, his most common linemates are cleary and franzen. 


i agree with you harold, people act as if he was on the 4th line when the season started. he earned these lousey minutes. and despite his recent demotion, he is still middle of the pack for forwards time on ice for ES and PP.
