#2544122 10/23 GDT : Penguins 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

Posted by DeGraa55 on 23 October 2014 - 11:30 PM

And the team is having a great start despite playing some tough teams this month. Are we not allowed to be excited?

Oh yeah, you're one of those who have been predicting doom and gloom. Sorry your predictions have been completely wrong thus far. But not really.

Except no ones predictions have been wrong or right....ITS OCTOBER.

And since it's clear you don't pay attention. When people were complain when we were 1-1-1 I said the same exact thing then. ITS OCTOBER.

Kyle Quincey is playing terrific. Kindl isn't, but hey can't expect too many miracles.

Quincey has already made a couple sweet defensive plays.

#2538957 Devils Sign Tootoo

Good for Toots, glad to see him back in the NHL again. 


Even gladder to see that it could push Brunner out! 

#2538666 Blast from the Past

Posted by Son of a Wing on 06 October 2014 - 11:04 PM

So I was going through a bunch of my Dad's old things and stumbled upon one of his NHL contracts from the Red Wings lying in between the pages of an old program.


I've never seen an NHL contract before (let alone from the 70s) and thought it was interesting and that I would share for others interested as well.


The salary and bonuses give an interesting perspective in comparison to today.  The average salary (according to the HHOF) in 1970 was $18,000.

Jensen should most definitely make the opening roster over kindl. If "tie goes to the best player" that should be a no brainer. Kindl just gets worse and worse and Jensen has been one of our best dmen thus far. He has the puck moving ability, sound defense, and RH point shot we need so desperately. I see Callahan's sandpaper replacing Andersson and Jensen replacing Kindl. Atleast i hope so...

#2536502 3 Training Camp Squads named

Posted by Euro_Twins on 18 September 2014 - 11:11 AM

Except everyone except Quincey played better when paired with smith(including kronwall).

So it's not just a one way thing they both elevated eachother and more reason to keep them as the number one pairing!!!!!!

Everyone says Smith played better because of kronwall, I'm not going to argue with that, but my question is who played better and elevated their game more with kronwall, I thought that Smith-kronwall was our best d pairing all year.

The Quincey/Smith pairing has never worked and Babs just keeps reverting back to it if that is the case again. Smith needs someone that allows him to jump into plays and be more active offensively. He played his best hockey by far with Kronwall as his partner last season. I don't care so much if the Wings leave Kronwall and E together, but at least play Smith with DeKeyser.


Quincey on the third pairing with whichever other mistake is necessary or ideally Marchenko/Ouellet instead. 

#2534586 Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

@theScore: Kovalev is unsure why P.K. Subban is worth $72M: 'He plays like he did on streets as a child.' http://t.co/GoV5aINrNn http://t.co/AFKZPl1Rq8



It's pretty hilarious that Kovalev of all people would call out a player.  Especially the part about scoring 5 goals but allowing 5 goals.  Maybe check your career +/- there Alex.  The guy embodied the lazy Russian stereotype when he played.  


I guess he's not been getting enough attention lately?

Here's Subban with his NBA attitude, putting himself above his teammates, putting himself above the league, and generally making it all about himself. 





(I was being sarcastic)



In interviews and what I saw on CH24 he comes across as one of the more well spoken and humble players in the league.

Posted by frankgrimes on 27 June 2014 - 05:40 AM

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.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 April 2014 - 07:13 PM

Can we buy out Holland instead?
