#2679528 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

Posted by poel on 25 June 2016 - 08:19 PM

I think we'll add two forwards. Stamkos and then a supporting player. I'm losing hope in a defenseman, tough. I guess we could tackle that next year. Baby steps.


If we're able to lose Ericsson I'd be ok to play the kids. With Ericsson I'd be concerned. I never really liked him but he was always solid. Last season he was beyond terrible. I'd rather play Ouellet or Smith. 

To me it's not written in stone that there's no d-man available though. Minnesota wants wingers for a defender. I don't want Spurgeon but I think they're more thinking about Scandella, Brodin or Dumba anyway. Brodin is a rocksolid workhorse similar to DeKeyser, Scandella is a typical stay at home defenseman with a big shot. Dumba still has to learn a lot but he has tons of skill. Sky's the limit for him...and he's a righty. I'd take them all. Problem probably is that Holland doesn't have the balls to give up something significant in a trade. For all three of them I'd happily trade away Nyquist, Tatar plus pick or prospect. 

Same situation in Anaheim who wants wingers or cap for forwards and therefore seems willing to give away Fowler.

Holland should also keep an eye on Trouba. If it's true that he's demanding a lot of money or might doesn't want to resign at all Holland has to have an offersheet ready. Two Michigan top defenders might be available...Holland better doesn't miss out on them if there's the slightest chance...

Bettman being booed mercilessly. 

#2677171 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

If Radulov is honestly looking for 7.5 million/yr for 2 years as the rumors are floating around he and his agent are out of their minds.

SBNation says he's likely going to the Avs.

#2672686 ECQF Game 5 Post-GDT: at Tampa Bay 1, Red Wings 0 (TB Wins, 4-1)

Posted by Namingway on 21 April 2016 - 09:01 PM

Man, like I said in the GDT, I don't feel as disappointed in the loss as I did in the past few years. Maybe it's because the Wings barely made it in when everyone expected them to miss the playoffs. If anything, I feel worse about how this is likely the way Datsyuk will end his career as a Red Wing. Well, I guess Lidstrom and Yzerman didn't really have the best ends to their legendary careers either. In any case, I'll always cherish the memories of Pavel Datsyuk dazzling us with his magic. I'm sure I'll be showing my future children and grandchildren ancient highlight clips from YouTube of the Magic Man. Thanks for all the fun, Pavel. It was a hell of a show.

No changes and expecting a different result.  Yawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwn.

What a game. Other than a crappy PP everything went as well as it possibly could. Smith was unreal, Mrazek steady as hell and Hank finally showed something. Bring it again Tuesday and we have a series.

#2656908 Uh oh... Coreau called up... Mrazek injured?

Posted by chaps80 on 01 March 2016 - 10:05 PM

Yeah let him take as much time as he needs if Howard keeps playing well. Shouldn't rush back from a groin issue. Let him rest a bit more, and let Howard try and raise his trade value. All good.

Great move by Kenny.... Wait.... He's the one that signed him to that contract...

This team is full of guys who just crumble under pressure. It's all in their heads. Kronwall and Ericsson are just the kind of guys who trip and fall when the game is on the line they always have been

I bet if that puck was a cheeseburger he'd stop it?

#2638320 When does Larkin get the C?

Posted by rick zombo on 20 November 2015 - 11:46 AM

I dont feel like Hank is the heart and soul of our team anymore. I'm thinking next year, you sew that C on Larkin's sweater and give the A's to Hank and Sheahan. It's early, but Larkin appears to be what we have all been waiting for - our next Stevie Y.


Let's, for a minute, just say that this isn't a dumb idea. Let's say it is very intelligent. It still would never happen. Because: Red Wings.

#2636446 Goalie Battle

Posted by rick zombo on 11 November 2015 - 12:38 PM

both our goalies are top 10 in the league in save% for goalies who have started in at least 5 games.  Pretty awesome stuff

That is awesome, and hopefully sustainable. Because with this team's terrible possession numbers and shot differential, the goalies' play is obviously covering up that stench a bit.

If the team can straighten this out and continue to get great goaltending they might be dangerous.

#2633811 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by kipwinger on 28 October 2015 - 03:31 PM

For context's sake.  Jon Cooper was 5-8-3 in his first 16 NHL games.  It takes a second for new coaches to find their groove with the team.  Can we maybe give it af****** minute?
