#2269412 HF Boards: Red Wings Top 20, Spring Edition

Posted by RusDRW on 12 March 2012 - 03:44 PM

A lot of promising players on that list, although the recurring theme of size (or lack thereof) is a slight concern.


midget line: Nyquist - Jarnkrok - Pulkkinen
power line: Tvrdon - Shaehan - Jurco


#2268813 What do you guys have to say about Filpulla now?

Posted by RusDRW on 10 March 2012 - 03:33 AM

He's good, but clearly not good enough to have his name spelt correctly. Which, in fairness, is no small request.


Most people still think a guy named F_O_dorov played for Detroit.


#2263463 2012 NHL Trade Deadline Thread - February 27th, 3:00 PM ET

Posted by RusDRW on 27 February 2012 - 11:45 AM

Word in TO is that Detroit is kicking the tires on Grabovski. No solid source on that though.


Would be excellent. In a right system (our system) he could be quite similar to Pav.

Hemsky or nothing!


#2255202 Joe Thornton... class act

Posted by RusDRW on 11 February 2012 - 09:24 AM

Joe Thornton is a joke. One more reason San Jose chokes every year. When Boston traded him, I thought they got majorly hosed in the deal. Now, if you follow the players Boston received and take into account the level of tool that Thornton is...Boston clearly won. And they just won the Cup, something SJ has supposed to have done within the last 10 years.


you're taking it too far. He is good player when he decides to play instead of behaving loke a tool. And yes, Boston got hosed in that deal.


#2250393 How Would You Fix the All Star Game?

Posted by RusDRW on 28 January 2012 - 02:20 AM

Use Eastern/Western format and let them play for home ice advantage in SCF. Schedule the game a bit earlier in the seasons (e.g. Christmas time) such that all the players are interested. It is THAT simple. Still we will not see it.


#2249973 why is Emmerton instead of Mursak?

Posted by RusDRW on 26 January 2012 - 11:06 AM

Emmerton is a center, Mursak is a wing.


#2249013 Does the NHL suspend Toews?

Posted by RusDRW on 24 January 2012 - 02:56 PM

Hartnell is an all-star? Give me a break... We'll finally see someone like Rory Fitzpatrick making all-stars game.


#2244493 UofM/NHL in Advanced Talks for Winter Classic

Posted by RusDRW on 12 January 2012 - 07:47 AM

To be honest who cares? let it be roller hockey in texas between Dallas and Tampa it just one game out of 82. For those who live in Detroit it could be indeed a good Evening. If they could get tickets of course.


#2227188 Babcock: "Do we want to be a good team or not?"

Posted by RusDRW on 18 November 2011 - 03:54 PM

it is interesting point I would say... Either the team will magically find a way to work hard or someone will be traded and/or Babcock fired.

PS I want the next seasons start ASAP. Something tells me we'll continue to "find answers in the locker room"


#2227168 Bottom Six Philosophy?

Posted by RusDRW on 18 November 2011 - 02:49 PM

Clarkson, Moen, Penner, Nyquist (that one in Dallas)... go after them instead of keeping Miller, Eaves, etc. Two trades may chenge the entire team.


#2226965 11/17 GDT: Red Wings 2 at Sharks 5

Posted by RusDRW on 18 November 2011 - 01:03 AM

is the answer still in the locker room Kenny?


#2225538 Mark Howe's Hall of Fame Induction Speech

Posted by RusDRW on 15 November 2011 - 01:48 PM

Mark How inducted to the HOF? Really? Perhaps it should be renamed to NHL HOF as it has nothing with hockey worldwide. In Sweden, Finland, Chechoslovakia and Russia and we so many defs that were WAY better than Mark Howe. 100 more that are not there.

PS still I understand for whom the "product" is made.


#2221939 NHL Trade Deadline Predictions

Posted by RusDRW on 03 November 2011 - 01:24 PM

We'll get someone like Cory Cross.


#2218889 This team screams for a trade

Posted by RusDRW on 27 October 2011 - 04:37 AM

The reaction is pretty predictable... We are 5-2, no reason for panic, etc. I'm not satisfied with the quality of hockey not with the current record. If this team is not going to change somehow (via trades or changing mentality) during the year we will see yet another 2nd round exist. Red Wings have all the skill in the world. What the current roster lacks is some determination and willingness to win. We saw it twice in a row with San Jose when we simply forgot to start competing until it was 0-3. And yes uninspired play translates to the play-offs.
