Does anyone really trust Holland to make the right move at the deadline should he actually make a trade? The guy is so averse to taking a big risk, but when he does make a trade, it never fulfills what the Wings need. 

 

I would personally sell off anything possible and fully embrace a youth movement next season. The Wings are boring, stale and going nowhere. Standing pat is a first round exit waiting to happen again. Shake things up and give the organization some direction besides stuck in mediocrity. I don't need to see any more of Helm, Richards, Glendening, Andersson, everyone on defense besides DeKeyser to know what we have in those players.

 

I'm pretty much done with Holland. If not for Mrazek and Larkin bailing him out, this is a lottery team.

A few years ago I would've thought Tatar, and Nyquist would be a big part of the future, but so far this season neither one has been impressive...Can throw Abby, and his new contract into the mix as well.

 

Yes, but I am referring to "kids" to the tune of 25 or younger who may be here 15 - 20 more years.  I think Tatar still has his place on this team, but I am over Nyquist for some reason.  I guess we will have to see if he turns it up the rest of the way and makes his contract look like a steal (for us that is.)  I am a big Pulkamaniac, but he really needs to hone his game, or he will become just another promising AHL'r that can't translate to the NHL.  At this point I am not ready to give up on him, but if he were to be part of a package that would bring us what we need, I wouldn't be too upset...

You have three "kids" on this team, in the different positions right now that will be your leaders going forward and into your future molding the rest of the kids as they come up and these are the players you build your team around:

 

 

Up Front: Larkin, on D: Dekeyser and Marzek as you goalie.  Those three are you pillars you must build your team around moving forward from the old regime to the next...

I wish Tangradi would get a 10-game stretch on the Wings' 4th line. Let's see what a big body with some snarl can do on this team.

Regardless of what happened in this game it's another Howard start and another loss.


#2649588 ROY according to LGW

Posted by kickazz on 23 January 2016 - 12:15 AM

If they want to go based off numbers obv Panarin but if they want to go off of difference maker/ impact etc. It is definitely Larkin. Larkin is the MVP of the Red Wings. Panarin is not a Hawk MVP.


#2649582 ROY according to LGW

Posted by matt198913 on 23 January 2016 - 12:10 AM

Larkin. 19 years old and best player. Panarin is good. Really good, he's been in pro hockey for some time and I feel that has impact on his rookie status.

Throughout this discussion, one thing has become painfully clear to me:

Yzerman gets a pass. Unless I find out he raped or killed someone, I don't give a s***. He could wipe his ass with Stamkos's jock strap and hold a press conference about how awesome it was, and I would be like "oh, my captain, you so crazy! LOL!" I'm not saying I like this about myself, but there you have it. :lol: Guy was my childhood hero.

It's like most Wings fans are afraid to admit it, but I believe Jurco's played like absolute s*** since his 1st rookie callup

Am I the only one that's been way disappointed in Green's play?  Like, I could kinda maybe stomach all the defensive lapses and him regularly getting walked like a dog if he was scoring goals or breathing some life into the powerplay.  And I could kinda maybe stomach the ack of goals and powerplay points from the guy that was supposed to be our go-to offensive defensman if he was at least solid defensively.  But he's really struggling on both sides of the puck lately.

It would have been so awesome if they didn't catch that off sides and the Wings scored and there was nothing STL could do about it since they already used their challenge.

Maybe a little Shatty swap prior to the game? :lol:

 

 

Lets Go Wings!

 

 

BTW, if those are current line, YAYAYA for Helm going back to the 4th.  I am not making fun of him either, he and Glenny together are a pretty deadly checking unit. I like Helm on the 4th all day long.




#2647335 Red Wings at the Halfway Point

Posted by DickieDunn on 11 January 2016 - 11:28 AM

They need a high end D and a bigger top 6 forward. They have pieces toove to do it, as long as they don't get sentimental and panic that a prospect might end up better, because most prospects don't hit their ceilings. Not that long ago Sproul was untouchable, now he's looking like he might not even be an NHL player, much less a top pair D.

I like the way we are heading. I think we are 2 players away from being really good. Byfuglien is the first piece. The Wings need a defenseman who brings some stank to the rink.

But overall, I love watching our team right now with Mrazek being the starter. We have a chance to win every game now.
