#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.

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.

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
