Half of the money he is going to get belong to Pavel...

With Mrazek in net it would have been very different series...

#2585053 3/24 GDT : Coyotes 5 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

Howard is the only reason we lost tonight.

#2555022 It's gotta be asked....What's up with Hank?

Posted by RusDRW on 09 December 2014 - 02:23 AM

Am I the only one who thinks he is fine? Zetter is at his best when we need his most. He has that second or third gear he could turn on when needed. Now when everything is fine with the team as we get scoring from all the lines he is just fine.

#2550253 Why is Kindl not playing?

Posted by RusDRW on 20 November 2014 - 03:39 PM

because he sucks, no?

The more it happens the more, I think, it is related to our playing style. I mean willingness to absorp the hits, not fighting back, being in vulnerable positions just to win the puck, etc. We're playing like 6'3'' team while our best players are just 5'11''. It takes a lot of courage to do this but at the same time it is stupid

#2536691 Barry Trotz Wants Ovechkin to be more like Yzerman

Fedorov, Bure, Mogilny - Russian wingers known for their two way game just off the top of my head. 




Edit: Yes, Fedorov was a center. He's my all-time favourite player and I just had momentary brain-fart. 


Fedorov was "soviet" center. Any center from those USSR teams knew how to play defense.

#2534309 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by RusDRW on 15 August 2014 - 11:01 AM

there is good thing about Kenny. With him we always made the play-offs. Imagine being a fan of let's say Calgary or Ottawa or... well even Chicago and LA sucked for most years I'm watching hockey (since 94). We never really sucked in my life and were always a couple of players away from the SC. I prefer this rather than waiting for the good years of Bennet, Monahan or RNH and Draisatl or... and the list goes on.


PS One more example a bit more illustrative than Calgary and Edmonton. Would you like to be a fan of San Jose now? At least we are retooling with Anastasou, Nastasiuk, Nylen, Mantha, Oulette, Sproul, Marchenko Backman, Jensen, Pulkkinen, Mrazek in the minors. They have like two prospects, aging Thornton, Marleau and they have never been even close to winning the SC.

#2533949 Greatest Wings game ever

March 26. Are there any doubts? 

#2533096 Which Players Agency would you choose and why ?

Posted by RusDRW on 28 July 2014 - 01:22 AM

who are Brassard (5x5) and Pouliot (4x5) agents? That agency is definitely the best.

#2531462 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by RusDRW on 11 July 2014 - 04:43 AM

this is just absurd. I don't even want to comment on this.

#2529266 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by RusDRW on 02 July 2014 - 12:38 AM

I'm not mad at KH not signing one year wonders like Niskanen or aging guys like Boyle. We don't need them in fact and could have regretted these deal. 


I'm not mad at KH for signing Quickey. He is top 4.


I'm mad at filling the roster with Kindls and Lashoffs and not being able to trade them for something meaningful. Play our youngsters on the D, Sproul, Oulette, Backman, Marchenko.

Then who is going to play?  Are they going to ice 1 line?






Suter(7.5)-Niskanen(? 7.0)




what what the reason for those lockouts?

#2526496 Dylan Larkin - Highest draft pick since 1991

Posted by RusDRW on 28 June 2014 - 07:19 AM

All scouting reports about Larkin remind me of another phenom we got in the first round - Cory Emmerton.
