I've probably missed this but where has Mickey Redmond been? Not a of fan of Ozzie doing commentary...


Mickey usually stays at home on long road trips.  Prior to getting fired, Larry Murphy usually handled the color commentary duties on long trips.  Though, after the firing, Redmond was on the road for all games last year.


Redmond has Celiac Disease, which means he needs gluten free meals, which can be hard to find on extended road trips.

Another average save or three by Howie to end the period.

Mick hasn't done road games for a while due to his disease.

#2430179 Brendan Smith signs 2-year, $2.525m contract with Red Wings

Great, love the kid, eventhoug he played like a 10 year old in the playoffs.

#2429309 Smith files for arbitration

Posted by kipwinger on 10 July 2013 - 06:05 PM

I don't know why some ppl are on Smith's ass so much.  He's only played for 1/2 a season in the NHL and only 13 games in 2011-2012. 


Because he played terrible during that 1/2 season.  You could say the same thing about Dekeyser, only he played even fewer games.  You know what the difference is?  One of them didn't make several boneheaded mistakes each game, while failing to live up to the one thing that got them to the NHL in the first place.  Brendan Smith was awful, defensively (which I don't care about as much because it was always a given that he'd need to improve there) AND offensively (which is a worse sin since he was supposedly an offensive defenseman).


I'm sure he'll improve.  But you can't whitewash the truth.  Yes he was a rookie, so is every player at one time or another.  But not every rookie sucks doorknobs. 

#2429091 Brunner Contract Talks

I hope he's the one forced purely based on his terrible nickname, "emdog"

#2428343 So.. what are our expectations for this roster?

Posted by Nev on 07 July 2013 - 08:04 AM

This is LGW, so anything short of going 82-0-0 and then a 16-0 run to the cup, coupled with a league record in fighting majors and trading Cleary for the 1st overall pick in 2014 will be an unmitigated disaster which can only be resolved by the instant dismissal of Holland and Babcock

55 points?  


Guy scored 3 points in 12 playoff games, playing on the top lines.  He's not an offensive player and has hammer hands.  


Babcock needs to put this guy on the lower lines where he belongs.    

#2428164 Wings Attempting to Re-sign Cleary

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 July 2013 - 05:04 PM


Haha. Yes, Steve "Who needs defense or goaltending?" Yzerman, whose team has bombed the past two seasons. He was left a capable team by his predecessor and has failed utterly to maintain it. Instead, he has ignored its needs and stocked it with bad contracts.


But hey... greener grass and all that, right?




Crymson, are you bad mouthing Steve Yzerman on this forum?

#2428186 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 July 2013 - 05:50 PM

Well Brunner just wait 8 more years and the Wings are going to give you 5 mil plus and if you are finally 35 + you might even get a ntc you are just too young sorry...

3 years around 3m per would havebeen fair forboth sides

#2420848 Dreger: Filppula looking for $5.5m/season over at least 7 years

Posted by dat's sick on 19 June 2013 - 04:56 PM

I like Fil and think this season was not indicative of what kind of player he usually is, but that kind of money and term would be crazy for him. If Datsyuk wasn't going to re-sign I would have considered giving Fil a good contract for him to stay as a backup-plan, but now he's expendable. With Nyquist/Tatar coming up and Järnkrok not far away either we have enough guys that can fill Fil's shoes. 

#2420837 Dreger: Filppula looking for $5.5m/season over at least 7 years

Posted by Crymson on 19 June 2013 - 04:28 PM

Link to article.


Dreger says that Pavel Datsyuk re-signing with Detroit indicates that Valtteri Filppula will not re-sign with the Red Wings, and Dreger believes that the 29-year-old Filppula wants as much as $5.5 million for as long as an EIGHT-year contract, or a least a seven-year deal;


I'd say that's that. I don't know what Filppula is smoking.

Drop Cleary, Sammy, Bertuzzi, go after a top 6 forward, keep Nyquist, Tatar, and Anderson up. The Defense is young, but is adapting well. Also bury Monster, he blows.

#2415760 WCSF Game 7 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 2 OT (CHI wins series, 4-3)

Posted by joesuffP on 29 May 2013 - 10:31 PM

I say cut the fat and promote guys like Brunner and Nyquist to our top 6. I don't think Franzen is going anywhere let Tatar play on our third line. Much like our defense this year trial by fire it only benefits our young players
