#2380826 4/5 GDT: Red Wings 3 @ Avalanche 2 (OT)

Posted by dragonballgtz on 05 April 2013 - 03:35 PM

We really need this win tonight. Sitting in the 7th spot with St. Louis having 1 point less than us and playing two games less..OUCH!!! Not to mention teams 9-12 have a damn good chance to catch up to us.

Get rid of John Keating, I hate him with a passion.

#2311004 Hudler to test free agency

Posted by dragonballgtz on 29 June 2012 - 09:42 AM

A very streaky player like Hudler can leave. If he is scoring then he is helping out if he ain't scoring he is a waste of space. No speed, no defensive play, lack of strength/size, poor work ethic, etc. His streaky play is part of the problem not part of the solution.

#2310357 Shane Doan to test free agency

Posted by dragonballgtz on 27 June 2012 - 09:28 AM

I would sign Doan to a one year deal and overpay him. We have the cap space to overpay him for a year and still have space to get other long term needs in as well. He might be getting up there in age but he is exactly what the wings need come playoff time.

#2309222 Red Wings 2012 Round 2 Selection- Martin Frk

That's the first thing I noticed, Soup Snake.

And damn, what is with all the concussed draftees the past few years? Something has got to be done about this.

Looking at the way he skates I'm not surprised at all that he had a concussion. At the start of the video watching him skate with his head down I immediately thought this guy will get killed in a NHL game. Dude is going to be asking for it if he continues to skate with his head down and hunched over like that.

#2301604 Kronwalled at the Worlds!

Posted by dragonballgtz on 16 May 2012 - 01:20 AM

What af****** moron on Latvia. Disgrace to hockey, what a hit by Kronner though.

How is that a disgrace? Kronwall still can get players in the NHL like this. Maybe I am missing something

Nice hit...nice to see nobody go after Kronwall after he delivers a clean hit...if that were the NHL, the entire opposition line would be trying to fight Kronwall. Like a clean hit has to be defended. What did kesler say earlier this year, if he is gonna hit like that he is gonna have to answer for it...why? Clean hit is a clean hit....jackass traitor!

Meh, remember the Philly game this past year. After a Kronwall hit it was the Wings who got scared when Philly didn't back down and came back at the Wings. Detroit looked like a bunch of sissies that day.

Nice hit overall

Damn, some good looking girls near the Philly bench

wow fleury's a bad goalie.

Fleury is this generations Ozzie.

Can be good at times, really bad a t times, and let in soft ones at the worst times.

EDIT: Whoever wins this series better hope their goaltending shows up next round.

#2271507 Alex Radulov returning nhl playoffs?

Posted by dragonballgtz on 19 March 2012 - 10:28 AM

He should not be able to play in the playoffs. Regular season OK I guess but no way in hell he should be allowed to play in the playoffs.

#2266281 Ron Wilson Fired by Maple Leafs

Kind of off topic but it has some lawls, the first 5 minutes at least. The last minute is very sad... God bless that family.

#2263204 Johan Franzen Depreciation

Posted by dragonballgtz on 26 February 2012 - 11:48 PM

Would it be much of a stretch to say that Holland's biggest career mistake will be Franzen over Hossa? It hurts to think how good our top 6 would be with Hossa, especially given he only makes a million or so more than Franzen.

Big stretch. It was either Hossa or Mule+depth, which Holland with rather have a balanced team over a top heavy squad. Even with Hudler over seas for the 09-10 season we were still right at the cap. That extra million with Hossa would've meant more depth loss besides just Sammy.

#2263008 Johan Franzen Depreciation

Mule could be a 50G guy IMO if he played with passion game in and game out. It's like he has the Fedorov emotion bug.

#2256490 Rick Nash "available for the right team/price"

Posted by dragonballgtz on 14 February 2012 - 12:35 PM

I think getting Nash would have damn near the same impact of us getting Shanahan back in the day. To bad that a cap system is in place now, if it wasn't for it he would already be a Wings player IMO.

I really appreciated reading all this bidness about Nash, even though I'll probably never understand the numbers game. However, doesn't the fact remain that the Wings' biggest priority is a defenseman? What with Lidstrom's quasi-imminent retirement and Stuart's leaving for the West Coast and family?

Not to mention if Jimmy has another Vezina-esque season he pretty much will double his salary cap.

#2256315 Joey Mac

Posted by dragonballgtz on 13 February 2012 - 05:56 PM

Joey can finish out the year here but I wouldn't want him to be our backup come next season. He has played decent the last couple of games but his rebound control scares the living crap out of me. I believe playing in GR regularly has allowed him to find his groove unlike Ty. But will he be able to find it when he is sitting on the bench like Ty does for most of the season?
