#2536408 2014 Prospects Tournament and Training Camp (Sept. 12-23)

Posted by krsmith17 on Yesterday, 09:52 AM

Yup, Athanasiou looks unreal. I hope Blashill plays him and Mantha together all year in Grand Rapids.

 

Once again, extremely happy Holland doesn't have the quick trigger finger that a lot of LGWers have. A lot of people on here were ready to trade this kid just a few short months ago. I said it back then and I'll say it again now, this kid is a keeper for sure.

The knock on Mantha at the draft was that he had questionable work ethic and day-to-day consistency and compete level.

 

Obviously a lot of scouts were a little off the mark.

 

edit to add: the best part is that Athanasiou also looks like he's going to a legit keeper too.

6'3" 1/2 which is pretty much 6'4"  and 198lbs at draft.


Hmm I remembered him being slightly smaller. Oh well lol.

Mantha scores! 1-0 Detroit


PPG St. Louis 1-1... Coreau in net for the Wings




#2535719 Detroit offers D Raphael Diaz tryout

I think that has more to do with the fact he will have way more opportunities and a lot better chance of making an NHL roster.  

 

Absolutely.  It's about getting a job.  Plain and simple.

 

I would think that would be clear as day...but judging by the comments above, I'm obviously mistaken.




#2534966 Trial date set in Steve Moore’s lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 26 August 2014 - 08:02 PM

I hope Moore wins as big as possible headaches are horrible concussions headaches are even worse and what Bert did at least to me could be classified as criminal. The guy has barely done any interviews and when he does them the lights are still dim. Some mentioned that Bert would have to live with only of 20 percent of his money do what? The guy ended someone's careerin hockey and life.so yeah go Moore

 

If that were the case then Matt Cooke should be in jail.




#2533802 Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 August 2014 - 01:12 PM

My prediction is that we'll be so bad that Dabura, LeftWinger and myself will not have accounts on LGW by the end of the season.  

 

:hehe:

We should cement this relationship and name the new arena Octopus's Garden!

 

Maybe Ringo can be the corporate sponsor.

You know what Paul McCartney has...? Loyalty. 

 

Give him a stick and put him on the point Kenny. He'll only be the 4th oldest UFA you've signed since Bowman left.

Speaking of songs and the Wings, every time I hear comfortably numb I think of Franzen, thanks to you GMR, thanks to you.

lol @ the city of Pittsburgh

 

 

They are such insecure pansies that they had to have their mayor ask Paul to put a Pens sticker on there alongside the Wings sticker, so their poor widdle feelings didn't get hurt.

Kenny on Lidstrom's retirement "Why he had to go I don't know he wouldn't say"

"I'm not half the man I used to be" should be one of Kenny Holland's favorite lines.
