#2529263 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 02 July 2014 - 12:27 AM

Quincey actually played well defensively the second half, he is just not producing much offense. I'll take it if Kindl is gone.

#2526036 NHL Draft 2014: First Round

I predict that Holland will trade down and pick Barbashev. Or they keep the pick and select Kempe.

#2524568 Detroit re-signs Gustavsson 1 yr $1.85 mill

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 19 June 2014 - 11:07 AM

Re-signing Gustavsson would be a wise move I think. There will be injuries, so Mrzek will probably play some in the NHL anyway.

#2524563 Todd Bertuzzi will not be re-signed

About time, thanks for the service and best of luck.
The only UFA I'd be willing to re-sign is the monster, Alfie should finally sign a deal with the Sens and retire there even if its just a 1 day contract he deserves it.

I agree, let Alfie walk. You could see he slowed down considerably during the second half of the season. I hope Holland has learnt from his mistakes with Cleary, Samuelsson and Bertuzzi...

#2523619 Trading up?

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 12 June 2014 - 02:02 PM

Zetterberg for Ekblad?
If so, you cray cray.

I'd do it, and I dont think it would be very crazy. Zetterberg is nearing the end of his career and Ekblad is a possible franchise defenseman.

#2520097 Spezza?

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 12 May 2014 - 10:23 AM

Might as well sign Legwand without trading any assets. Spezza produces slightly more offense but the physical upgrade is not great.

#2519971 Wings have the #1 & #2 most overpaid players (per point) in the NH

Not true.  He's really good at "an integral part of the game", as fight fans will tell you ad nauseam.

#2519053 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 03 May 2014 - 12:05 PM

Babcock should have the team look at the powerplays of this series. The defensemen launches rocket one timers on goal every chance they get. It takes forever for any Red Wing defenseman to get a shot off.

#2519022 Now some gritty forwards.

I like Prust from Montreal.

#2518975 Will Mantha join GR after the QMJHL playoffs?

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 02 May 2014 - 09:04 PM

OK Wings history buffs, who was the last Wing successfully make the jump from juniors to the big league?

Dandenault only played 4 games with Adirondack in 1995-96. QMJHL product...

#2513888 ADQF | Game 3 | Boston 3 @ Detroit 0, BOS leads series 2-1

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 22 April 2014 - 08:17 PM

Can at least squeeze blood out of Marchand? Can Babcock have our guys do that?? If we aren't going to play hockey.

And then what?? Watch as Thornton, Lucic and Chara destroy half our team? Detroit has no business getting physical with the Bruins, or any other team for that matter.

Marchand is an elite pest and crease crasher, I wish Detroit had a guy like him.

#2510421 4/18 ECQF Game 1 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Bruins 0. DET leads series 1-0

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 18 April 2014 - 10:17 AM

Neutral zone speed and Howard will be key for the Red Wings. Give us a full 60 minutes effort boys!

#2505927 4/4 GDT - Sabres 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 04 April 2014 - 07:36 PM

Just got in and the sabres game is local market, that channel was listing boxing, had a heck of a time with the cable company getting the feed. I see we are up 3-0, what's the short version?

Red Wings are looking pretty good. Good forecheck and solid all round performance throwing pucks on the net and capitilizing on some rebounds from the young goalie.

#2503356 3/29 GDT - Red Wings 4 at Maple Leafs 2

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 29 March 2014 - 08:43 PM

The Toronto feed just showed a few of Howard's "timely saves" from this game. I guess they did not get the Howard sucks memo.
