#2628736 Cleary on waivers

Am I the only one hoping he clears? I think he'd be great for the kids in GRs.

#2628475 Dylan Larkin on opening night roster

Posted by Jasper84 on 05 October 2015 - 05:03 PM

I know a lot of people have been saying lately how they'd like to see him sent down and develop there and that's understandable. Personally though, I think this was the right decision and I hope he gets to stay. My reason for this is that I like the idea that he can learn from Pavs and Hank before they are gone - what better centers to learn from???


Very happy for Larkin. He's going to have a long and fantastic Detroit Red Wing career.

about time it's pre season and he could have held back. Now he has 4 months to think about it.

41 games. NHL finally has some balls.

The vid on TSN from the league explaining the suspension was pretty clear it was a head shot. Long overdue. He should have been banned from the the league earlier. As others have said, hopefully this forces him out of the league next year.

At first, I thought the report of 41 games was a typo.

Then, I remembered that this is Raffi Torres we're talking about...

#2624966 Monthly schedule wallpapers?

Just wanted to throw this out as a little tickler...


Matt, any chance your schedule will allow you to make the wallpapers this season?  I, for one, greatly enjoy them...


I totally understand if you don't have time though.

#2624863 Need a little Abdelkader help please

Posted by captain2005 on 07 September 2015 - 02:23 PM

Ladies and gents, I am about to buy my girlfriend her first Jersey. I've been trying to get her to pick a player, and she is really adamant about getting Abdelkader. Great, I love him, but I don't want to spend the 180$ on a jersey for a guy who might not be with the team next year. 



I've been trying to talk to her about getting Dekeyser, or Nyquist or Sheahan just because I figure they are guaranteed to be on the team longer. She really wants number 8 though.


So my question, what are the odds he resigns? If he doesn't does it really matter? Is it considered poor to wear a jersey for a guy not on the team anymore?


Thanks any feedback welcome. Also any recomendations on websites to order from?

I'd say it's a 95+ percent chance that Abby resigns next season. I would be absolutely shocked if he signs elsewhere. Not gonna happen.

#2624422 So this is why teams hate the wings

Posted by F.Michael on 02 September 2015 - 12:02 PM

I became a fan in 1984, and I cherish each, and every season of Detroit Red Wing hockey.


IMHO - nuthin beats the early 90's thru mid 2000 when Detroit was one of the top teams in the league year after year.


Yeah - some will point to Ilitch's bank account, and his willingness to spend on UFA's, but a significant portion of our rosters back then were made up of smart drafting, savvy trades, and of course some luck.


Those years we had a little of everything; talent, grit/toughness, coaching, and above all the leadership of Steve Yzerman.
