#2629658 10/9 GDT : @ Red Wings 4, Toronto Maple Leafs 0

Posted by kickazz on 10 October 2015 - 11:00 AM

I was just about to post that. Seems like an odd thing to say right? I mean, is that out of shame? Or just despises nostalgia? Or is it regret? Or that his team got their asses handed to them and the wings don't have their best team iced with pav and their D is pretty thin.

Also, haven't heard anyone mention green. Only watched some of the game. How was he on D?

To me it was typical stern guy nervous/shy response. You can tell the guy was way out of his comfort zone in that quote.

Also green was okay. Could be better. Hopefully will be as he builds chemistry with team.

#2629581 Cleary NOT reporting to Grand Rapids

It's sad to me that there are still so many Wings fans that don't give Cleary the respect that he deserves. Ego and Greed? Give me a f***ing break. Taking advantage of people? Are you f***ing serious?

I'm not sure why I even bother responding to such rebuttal. Pure ignorance...

#2629514 Cleary NOT reporting to Grand Rapids

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 09 October 2015 - 08:59 PM

Its both funny and sad to me that there are still so many Wings fans that are Cleary apologists.  Yeah, I get it he was a decent pick up for us an played hard...several years ago. 
He should have left the Wings 3 years ago, but his ego and greed...er, wait... I mean "passion for the game"...kept him here taking advantage of people who would stupidly give him money he was most definitely NOT worth for several more years.
Like every Wings fan, I was ecstatic, and then heartbroken when he agreed to the 3 year deal a couple years back, then reneged, and ran back to (Red Wings) fools he could take better advantage of financially.
I was a fan of him several years back, like I said before, but now, I can't wait until I never have to hear his name ever again.
Bye Bye Danny, hope you enjoy all of that money the Wings gave you, since that is obviously all you cared about in your last years here.
Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

He was really good to a lot of fans, and amazing to roboturners sister.

So I don't have a bad thing to say about the guy.
I'm glad he's hanging them up, but I can't fault him for trying to keep his dream alive.

Not a fan of Cleary's decision here.


Holland gifted him 3 contracts and now its time for him to return the favor and he wont do it. Hope he leaves the org and never looks back

#2628634 Dylan Larkin on opening night roster

Posted by Euro_Twins on 06 October 2015 - 09:24 PM

Watching him play in the preseason games I realized he was much closer to being ready than previously assumed.
Not sure.. I'm a bit confused at this point. The Babcock/Holland in me tells me its too early if he stayed up here long term. The excited fan guy in me tells me its not. 

But I'm easily convinced so I guess we will see. 

I think a fair assessment can only be made after he plays a few regular season games. If he shines.. Then I guess you can't really argue if he should be sent down.. 
The problem with Jurco situation was he played 4th line.. If Larkin is playing first line with Zetterberg, I honestly can't imagine a better way to groom up a player for the NHL 

The thing is too, that he already is very disciplined and you can tell he works hard on his game. If he can learn from a guy like datsyuk or z at 19 he will be that much better, that much faster. Yes probably the perfect candidate for them to groom

It's pretty messed up that fans are running around like it's 1999 and Napster just blew up.

#2624411 Moving Jimmy Howard

Do you think RFA Petr Mrazek is going to make 5 million dollars?  I don't.  I don't think that's remotely probable, regardless of the season he just had. 


Everyone always thinks that good young players, with tons of potential, are going to make a fortune after the ELC runs out.  They might for other teams, then don't for the Red Wings.  Look at Nyquist and Tatar.  Both are on reasonable bridge contracts.  Mrazek will be too.

What do you mean "TOO MANY HOOKERS"?

Nope sadly a yahoo link and their site is just....https://ca.sports.ya...-212225823.html


I'm just saying it's super-teams that people even not interested in the sport are going to know about, the more super-teams the better and even better if those teams can keep their talent.


The Kings are far from being done, they'll get rid of the Voynov contract sign someone else to replace him yeah the Richards thing (rightfully) is going to hurt them but given their age group LA's run is far from over. Wouldn't be the least surprised if the win it all this year.

Canadian ratings are down, but that has more to due with Rogers being awful than the product being bad.


Ratings in the US are soaring 

#2620709 33,487 Miles

Posted by kickazz on 16 July 2015 - 01:16 PM

The Detroit Red Wings will travel the fewest miles of any team for the upcoming 2015-16 season.





Less travel is always good but how hard is travel really on teams now? They get to fly in a private plane that has a lot of perks for them. It is not like the general public flying.

Jet lag is jet lag. Change in elevation also affect oxygen perfusion to tissues. 


Private planes or not, you can't circumvent physiology of the body. It's still affected once the plane has taken flight. 

#2618533 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Posted by FlashyG on 01 July 2015 - 07:39 PM

He managed to find us a RHD we've been looking for since Rafalski retired, he addressed our lack of center depth after buying out Weiss. More importantly he did both without tying us to either player long term so even if they don't work out, it won't be a disaster.


To top if off he and Mr. Ilitch already worked out a pretty awesome new dance routine with our new additions.



#2618443 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

In typical LGWs fashion, the thread about the Richards signing has more pages than the Mike Green one. 

#2618417 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by kipwinger on 01 July 2015 - 04:47 PM

It's laughable at how people complain about Holland doing nothing in years past, and now he goes out a makes some deals today, and some people still complain.


Holland signed one of the biggest d-man F/A's today, then picks up an UPGRADE over Weiss, for only one year, and people still aren't happy.


I'm 100% happy with what Holland did today.  Well done, sir!


The Richards' deal doesn't hurt us, so it's not a "bad signing".  It's just confusing given our center depth and the Weiss buyout. 

#2618284 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by rick zombo on 01 July 2015 - 03:42 PM


Except he hadn't just won the Cup. 



Meh. He'd be a depth signing. Still good on the PP. And waaaaay better than Cleary. 

#2617787 Alexander semin being bought out

Posted by number9 on 30 June 2015 - 11:03 PM

Glad to be rid of Weiss, maybe we should sign Semin? Is like: maybe if I get addicted to meth I can give up doing crack.
