#2618198 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by dragonballgtz on 01 July 2015 - 03:13 PM

Maybe Quincey gets moved during the season? There is always a team that's completely decimated by injury early on in the season. Don't think he gets resigned anyways


I just see Quincey not being re-signed at the end of the year. His $4.25M being invested into our younger players that are out of options (waiver exempt).

#2617859 Free agents this off season

I really hope Nyquist doesn't get an offer sheet. Holland needs to sing him now before some GM thinks he can take him away from us.

#2617654 Saad traded to Columbus

Posted by dragonballgtz on 30 June 2015 - 06:13 PM

TSN report: Saad, a restricted free agent, was reportedly asking for a deal in the $6.5 million per year range after helping the Blackhawks to their second Stanley Cup in his third NHL season.



After this quote from Bowman:

"We'll work that out. I have a lot of confidence that Brandon will be a big part of our group for many years to come," Bowman said. "We'll make it work. Those things aren't of a concern to me."




I guess this is the bad part of having a young winning team. They want their big contract faster instead of a "bridge" deal.

E got turned inside out

Pablo datsyuk isn't having that great of a game.

Yeah, seems like he can't control a pass and issues handling the puck in general

Our defense isn't giving us a chance in this game. This is a rattled group top to bottom

Defense? Everyone but Howard is playing like crap.

Too little, too late

#2543271 10/21 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Canadiens 2 (OT)

Posted by dragonballgtz on 21 October 2014 - 09:21 PM

People can blame this on the refs all they want, but the fact of the matter is this team is having a hell of a hard time scoring. Sure we would all have liked for Datsyuks goal to count, but we had multiple PP opportunities to score and nothing came from it.


Scoring one or two goals a game wont cut it in the NHL

#2541452 10/15 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by dragonballgtz on 16 October 2014 - 07:20 AM

It's easy to see Nes miss in the shoot out and say it was a stupid call but for all we know he could be dazzling every day in practice at the shootouts. Hindsight and all....we can complain if he keeps getting opportunities.


In practice he is probably going against Howard, so yeah.


Near the end of the game Guss-Sheahan-Tatar were together for a couple of shifts, which was awesome since they were about the only few people making a difference out there.


Kindl's TOI was 9:55, but every minute he was out there he was noticeable in a bad way.

E is not a top 2 guy, top 4 guy at best.


As good as Howard was tonight we need him to be good in the SO as well. This team learned last year that these SO points are valuable for bubble teams.


Besides Datsyuk, no one can seem to run a PP and no one can win a face-off.

If this is true then he should be forced to retire and have his cap hit count against Philly.

At least Holland tried. He can't help it if a player takes less money elsewhere. There's definitely something rotten in the Wings. The last year has really been embarrassing, a sensation I'm not used to as a Wings fan since the mid-nineties. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

That is his problem. Holland cannot land talent to help his team out and that is the GMs job at the end of the day.
