#2553078 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by frankgrimes on 01 December 2014 - 12:05 PM

Sorry but 4,25 per for KFQ is overpayment, Ehrhoff - who is much better - is making less than that and look at Pittsburghs improvement so trading him will not be easy. I think he will ride out his contract here. But yeah XO deserves to have a place on this team. Not that this would make the team a contender, but it would be nice to see the youth movement taking over more and more.

Hell, even a 37 year old Willie Mitchell is getting 4.25 million over the same term and signed in the same year.


It's market value whether people like that or not...


I'd take Mitchell over Quincey in a heartbeat, even at that age.  He's a better defender. 


I don't think it was crazy overpaid, but for a guy that's been on the Wings roster and sounds like had little interest around the league, Quincey's contract felt a bit high at the time of the signing.


Luckily Quincey has been playing well so I'd say he's earning his paycheck.  With him though there's always that chance he forgets how to play hockey for a 20 game stretch again.

If he doesn't score on his first shift Babcock demotes him to water boy?

More like groin reinjured see him again next month....

How do you have Helm penned as your third shooter. Another massive coaching blunder that probably cost us a point

Considering how many gave up on this game when it was just 2-1, OT is kind of nice  :lol:

Sorry I wasn't posting more, BBQ and posting don't mix well. :)

Most satisfying win of the season. Jimmy Howard is my favorite Red Wing.

#2155591 WCQF Game 4 GDT: Red Wings 6 at Coyotes 3

Yup, that might have been one of the best games I've seen Flip play ever. It's a little frustrating to see too cause if he played (and shot the puck) like that in the regular season he could easily be a 30 goal/70 point guy.

I think we've got enough evidence by now to say that Flip cruises in the regular season. Because there's no way he can play as dominant as has has this series and virtually all playoff series if he wasn't always capable of it. Plus, Zetterberg has been out, and I think he steps up when he has more responsibility. He played 20:47, the most of any forward, won 11 faceoffs, had 2 assists and was +2. Dominant.

Just based on reading these posts, I am glad that Ken Holland is in charge.

#2078080 Babcock considers having 'warm, gooey spot' for Chris Osgood

Posted by sputman on 14 December 2010 - 05:08 PM

Babcock being all business, is a good thing. Would be cool to see Ozzie win 400 at home, but it's good that Babcock sticks with what's "Best".

mike babcock has been our best acquisition in the past 10 years.

You joke.
Hudler is a scoring forward.


What makes a scoring forward a scoring forward?


When is a scoring forward not a scoring forward?

When he's not scoring. When he's neck and neck in points with the 3rd pairing Dmen.

Well I am as happy as a pig in s***. Secondary scoring showed up and Howie was fantastic. Being there in person was the icing.

#2052235 The Third Line

Posted by chrisdetroit on 24 October 2010 - 05:01 PM

Cleary should be able to play a net front role just fine. For example on the Datsyuk game winner yesterday.

The line is just not skating and winning battles. They aren't finding each other in space with passes, they aren't forechecking well, and defensively they've been weak.

7 games in and it starts....
