#2363256 Babs on last night's D: "...best we've had all year."

Posted by MacAttack25 on 01 March 2013 - 01:55 PM

Don't know if it's been mentioned already, but this dawned on me last night:

 

Kronwall

Ericsson

Smith

Quincey

Kindl

Lashoff

 

All Red Wings draft picks except for Lashoff, who we signed as an 18 year old. An all home grown backend! 




#2359489 Mursak on waivers

Posted by MacAttack25 on 22 February 2013 - 02:42 PM

The exact same thing happened when Holland had to waive Quincey to keep Ericsson.  People wept tears of blood and whipped themselves in the street.  For the next two seasons we all heard how Holland made a huge mistake and he had to get Q back.  When Kenny brings back the Q we all see how much worse he is than Ericsson and we're glad big-E stuck with the team.

 

My memory might be fuzzy, but I don't think Quincey had anything to do with Ericsson. I think Quincey was waived to keep Chelios and Meech. Quincey was waived at the beginning of the 2008-2009 season, Big E started in Grand Rapids that year if I'm not mistaken.

Riley Sheahan drunk and in a Teletubby costume would be more serviceable than Cleary at this point.

#2266628 3/4 GDT : Blackhawks 2 at Red Wings 1

When is the last time we scored with the goalie pulled? Calgary last season?


#2259868 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by MacAttack25 on 21 February 2012 - 04:51 PM

I like the move as far as bringing him back goes, but I'm a bit on the fence about sending a first rounder the other way. I thought for sure our first rounder would go towards bringing a forward in. I just hope we don't have to trade Tatar, Nyquist, or Smith if we make another move.

Either way, looking forward to seeing Quincey in the line up. Definitely an improvement on our blue line :thumbup:


#2246014 1/16 GDT : Sabres 0 at Red Wings 5

Can we please get Mursak in for Emmerton?


#2229886 11/25 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 2 (SO)

Posted by MacAttack25 on 25 November 2011 - 04:06 PM

Bert is looking a lot better these past few games than he did before his injury. Nice move in the shootout and a nice assist on Pav's goal. He's had some good chances lately, just a matter of time before a few go in for him :thumbup:


#2229652 11/25 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 2 (SO)

I've never seen Ericsson play with any balls anyway. He'll be fine.


#2228773 Ian White expected to return on Wednesday

Posted by MacAttack25 on 22 November 2011 - 03:42 PM

Does this mean they'll show the Wings game on Versus and CBC on Wednesday? :ph34r:


#2228478 Crosby coming back

Posted by MacAttack25 on 21 November 2011 - 07:21 PM

Hahaha, I hate him so much. That was a nice goal.


#2220097 Brunnstrom on waivers

Posted by MacAttack25 on 29 October 2011 - 11:04 PM

But, but, but... :siren: :siren: :siren: ..he was goin score 35 gols.. :siren: :siren: :siren:

But really, I wish he could have played more. I don't think it would have hurt to throw him in one of these last few games. Hopefully he has a good showing in Grand Rapids :thumbup:


#2213901 Bouchard suspended 2 games

Posted by MacAttack25 on 10 October 2011 - 11:27 AM

This is awful, in my opinion. Give him a 4 minute penalty, 2 games for this is way overboard. I don't think it was reckless by Bouchard, I think they were just jostling and chopping at each other and Calvert's stick lift made Bouchard hit him up high unintentionally.

How many games would this have gotten?




#2207393 Jonathan Toews Bodychecks a Child

Posted by MacAttack25 on 13 September 2011 - 02:04 PM

Bit of a cheap shot by Toews, but Hudler needs to keep his head up.


#2206932 McCrimmon, Salei on board Russian plane crash

Not sure if this has been shared, but here's a nice piece on Kindl's relationship with Salei
