In the last two years, the organization has lost:









Do other organizations have this much turnover?  It might be totally normal, I've just never thought to follow it until now.  Seems like a lot of high profile personnel to lose in a short span. 

Didn't you know? The Redwings org has lost its shine. no one wants to be here anymore. It's only a matter of time before the fans start leaving.

I read Drew Sharp all the time.  I don't agree with you. 

Are you a UofM fan?


It is well known that he always write negative articles not only about UofM but the whole state of Michigan and Michigan sports. It;s one thing to be objective but to go to the lengths that he does to talk bad about all of Michigan sports is a bit much. I understand his thing is to take the unpopular stand on all subjects but he goes over a lot.



example of him trying to start something but gets smacked down.

Drew Sharp is a d-bag who DOES in fact troll all things UofM. If you think otherwise then you haven't really seen him in action.

#2526578 NHL Draft 2014: Rounds 2-7 **MOD WARNING POST 51**

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 28 June 2014 - 11:32 AM

This is/was a bad prospect pool and everyone knew this going in. It is not a good draft at all. last year was great, next year is good. This year is below average. That is not on Holland. he took a very good player at 15 that should end up somewhere between Legwand and kesler. Legwand is 6-2/205 and scores 15 g 40 points per year. Kesler is 6-2/205 and puts up 25 g and 60 points per year. larkin will be in that range somewhere.

damn even richdg can spin a positive out of this draft. take notes folks=)

#2521443 Abdelkader ejected for "vicious" hit at World Championships

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 22 May 2014 - 02:30 PM

For starters, that writer is an idiot.  It wasn't late and he didn't leave his feet before contact.  Part of the reason the hit was so vicious is Sobotka was still following through on his shot and couldn't protect himself.  People need to stop watching gifs and slow motion replays and actually watch the video at regular speed.  


I don't know about international standards but by NHL rules the only issue is the strides he took before the hit. That could make it charging.  To me it looks like he's hustling back to make a play then veers into the hit, but it gave him a whole lot of momentum and made this hit a nasty one.


As for the rest, he does contact the head but he makes solid contact through the body.  That's legal in the NHL because of the solid body contact (I don't know about international rules).  He doesn't leave his feet before contact.  


If Sobotka gets up, it's likely nothing happens here.  Even if it were in the NHL though, because Sobotka doesn't get up it's likely getting a suspension.

Geez what did fans do before when hits like these were very legal and there were no questions.....

Sarah Connors ‏@sarah_connors 9h

guys are such huge babies about their junk, good lord


Sarah Connors ‏@sarah_connors 9h

i hope a guy gets speared in the junk every game from now on until forever. And I will laugh about it every time. f*** off.

Funny how she talks bad about guys when she clearly is trying to look like one.

#2508509 Maple Leafs Name Shanahan New Club President

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 10 April 2014 - 06:27 PM

Nothing more than a move to get a big hockey name to fill the position to ease fan backlash. 


My only concern is him poaching staff from the Wings.

I hope not=( We already have to deal with stupid dallas now.

Yzerman is still soft spoken off the ice and in front of the cameras and so is Crosby.


 But he's feisty and competitive on the ice and he did his share of whining.  I never said it was to the level of Crosby.  And anyone who "misremembers" how much Fedorov dove and laid on the ice like he was shot is definitely wearing Red Wing colored glasses.


So this player who his peers supposedly said is the biggest whiner was also chosen as the guy that more players would choose to start a franchise around?  Hm, interesting.  


You are Sean Avery ridiculous if you're actually making a serious comparison between Avery and Crosby.

sounds like you are wearing black and poop yellow colored glasses with all the defending you have done with crosby.

#2507613 bashing skid the kid

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 09 April 2014 - 09:56 AM

*shrugs*  So he dives and whines some.  Just not something for me to get all worked up over.  Franzen does pretty well in the diving and whining department too.  Chelios was no saint on the ice either.  Fedorov would lay on the ice for 10 minutes if someone bumped into him.   As far as I know, he's never been in trouble with the law, has been respectful to fans and media, and is relatively well spoken and conducts himself well.  I hope the Wings beat the Pens tonight and hopefully play them in the playoffs and prevail there as well, but I'm just not into the whole shistburgh and crysby thing. 

Yeah because everyone on here is getting all worked up about it. When was the last time Mule, Chelios or any of those you named was voted the worse cry baby in hockey by his peers? That's what this whole thread was about not how he conducts himself off of the ice. This is a sport. Entertainment which crosby fails at unless you like crying and flailing around on the ice after a ref touches him in the face. No where in this video or the thread has someone said anything about his off ice character. The problem is he was shoved down our throats from the very beginning of him coming into the league and when you play like crosby does unless you are a pens fan you are going to get much hate. Stop trying to defend him by lumping him into others that are no where near the level. Doesn't work.

Meh.  You could probably do a video like that with 90% of the players in the league.  Certainly not a fan, but wishing injury on a guy is really over the top. Plus, you have to consider he came into the league as an 18 year old with all the pressure in the world. I think he's toned it down a lot in recent years. I don't like him because he plays on a rival for the Wings.  But I'd take him on the Wings in a heartbeat.

90% of the players in the league!?!?! Seriously?  He is 26...he is not a child anymore and he still dives and crys. When you get voted by your peers to be the biggest whiner it means something. And don't give me that bull that its because everyone is jealous. The standard s***sburg fan response. I admit his skill is off the charts but no way in hell would I want him on the wings. He would have to change big time for me to even give it a second thought. 


Only way I want him even close to a wings jersey is him getting kronwalled
