#2623876 Franzen back on ice

Technically he's not cleared to play yet. Probably will get clearance from the sound of things, but we'll see.

 

No doubt that much of the "hang-'em-up" talk comes from people who just want him gone, but also some seem to have an overblown sense of the risks. Like they think he's one good hit away from being a vegetable. 

So having 5+ concussions doesn't justify hanging them up talk in a sport where getting hit in the head is pretty common? I think that the people trying to defend him against the mean ol LGW posters who want him gone are having their better judgments clouded.

#2619742 Wings‬ sign left wing Eric Tangradi

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 09 July 2015 - 12:13 AM

Who's to say that he doesn't make the fourth line or at least get a call up here and there? Even if he only gets 2 call ups I hope it's against Dallas and Ottawa .

Are people really pissed off about a depth signing probably around league minimum? Just be happy the Wings finally have a winger who has great size and will win some battles along the boards.

We have a few on here that think any sort of toughness or someone who will drop the gloves is worthless. Just ignore them. I still like watching big hits and fights. And I'm sure some others do as well. Not everyone wants pansy hockey.

#2619589 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 08 July 2015 - 10:51 AM

Their chemistry was noted to be the best in the league at some point, some consider it better than Sedin twins chemistry. Even at this age, some of the plays they make is absolutely ridiculous. They're all over the opposing team and their finesse is ridiculous combined. Their no look passes are godlike at times. 

 

 

nothing beats this one

She is one of the more reliable sources on twitter (compared to most) so please check for yourself before you s*** all over my post.

Sorry. Sometimes you get that here.




#2613239 Which Sweater Do RWs Retire First - Feds or Ozzy?

number9 might've been enjoying a barley pop, or two while starting this thread.

hahaha This made me laugh...Thanks




#2613216 Which Sweater Do RWs Retire First - Feds or Ozzy?

I wasn't sure if I was the only one that caught that and I didn't want to be a peckerhead about it, so thank you.

Leave it to GMR....=)




#2610690 Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 27 May 2015 - 07:47 PM

Blashill is great until the first time he trots out lines people hate. Assuming he gets the job, he will do good things and bad things. People will disagree with him. In the end I doubt he's better than Babcock even if he gets a bit better results. Even if the players are mostly the same next year, which is likely, young guys will be a year more experienced, older guys will be a year slower, meaning it won't be the same team.

We might as well not even watch next season.

#2609073 Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 20 May 2015 - 02:23 PM

Ken Holland is gonna adress the media at 4 p.m. ET.

He's a smart cookie, all he will do now is play out the cards he had prepared. I for one hope that the first card he waves out is Jeff Blashill as head coach of the good old Detroit Red Wings.

Asking a stupid question here but can we watch this streaming somewhere?




#2608778 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Mike Babcock is now the head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

#2608615 Question for the Board regarding Babcock

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 19 May 2015 - 04:11 PM

Aren't we ignoring the bull in the glass house regarding the Babcock coaching decision? I think Babs and many others with him are doubtful that the Red Wings will make the playoffs next season.

Moving out and letting Blashill handle that, in a sense acts as a dampener on that predicament. It Has to factor in for atleast 2 parties involved, namely Babcock and Ken Holland.

Babs sure as hell does not want that on his resumé. He'd rather coach the Leafs, which truly must be hopeless.

All that tells me is Don Cherry was right when he said once when babs goes to another team and is exposed on how bad he really is. And that he has been playing on the coat tails of Bowmans players this whole time. I am starting to lean that way with him as well.


 

I'm not really sure why you're so upset about people commenting on what is, without question, the biggest story in hockey right now. 

 

Seriously what's the problem?  You just don't like that I'm talking about Babcock in two Babcock related threads?  Or you don't like that I feel differently about it than you obviously do?
