#2535546 Lately things have been slow, here is an amazing pass from Zetterberg

Posted by luvmnger on 04 September 2014 - 10:30 AM

i agree. i think tatar is extremely underrated. rumors of him being traded for a defensemen had me a bit worried all summer.

this kid could end up being very big for the wings long term.

#2533331 Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

Posted by luvmnger on 29 July 2014 - 09:22 PM

1. the wings come out of nowhere and win the super bowl on feb. 3rd.

get cocky...and slack the rest of the season finishing 28th....missing mcdavid & rychel.

 

2. followed by a game 7 world series where cleary hits the bottom 9th run...straight to the pitcher.

 

3. the NFL starts using their waterboys and moneyball analytics and the whole league crashes.

4. XFL returns with a vengence...some punter re-names himself..."the real"

 

done. book it.

:w00t2:

kindl & lashoff get demoted to NYI  :lol:

 

quincey gone....rotate kids in 7th man tryouts




#2524366 Eaves is OUT in Nashville

Posted by luvmnger on 18 June 2014 - 03:35 AM

i was pissed when i heard eaves was out for leggy.

he worked his butt off for the wings.

we could put him in for andersson and he would deliver more points, better defensive zone coverage.(prob better faceoff % too.)

but i think i heard he was in babs doghouse most of the time.

 

good luck patty...may the force be with you. (and reuben)




#2523126 Dan Boyle's rights traded to the Islanders…..

Posted by luvmnger on 07 June 2014 - 12:04 PM

being a GM is a hard life of decisions. staying competitive is the primary goal. improving each year over the last. the decisions to "go for it" can cause long term consequences that can set a team back for many years if chosen poorly.

ask the sharks about signing joe. some would consider him to be the " guy that changes everything"

its all about percentages/chemistry/role play. a team of all-stars can win...but can they win it all?

larry murphy was considered a wash out in toronto...hated by the fans...fills role in detroit and wins.

point is....boyle can be a cog in the machine..."not the one", but a decisive role player.

until nyquist/tatar arrived, the redwings have been a team with a few stars...and a pack of mid-level guys. they need to shed a few middling players and upgrade slightly on each position.

is almquist/sproul/marchenko/ouellet better than kindl?

is boyle/niskanen/markov better than lashoff?

once you determine this to be true...you then weigh the variables. cost, trade, chemistry of position in system. would niskanen be a positive ( for the money) in a young team, being the go-to guy to bring outlet passes, run the 2nd powerplay? or would markov suit that position better? of course we can sit back and say yea...niskanen all day....but would that be worth it? younger guys would have to wait, be traded, or leave the wings for euro.

 

i have decided to back away from stressing about moves the GM makes...the GM is doing what he can with what he can.

i wanted OEL 5 years ago...i wish eaves wouldnt have been traded....i wanted burmistrov on a wing with pav...i wished we kept brunner.....i think almquist could be a great offensive guy....blah blah blah.

it doesnt matter what i do, say, or wish. our gm will do what he thinks can work. we have to trust ken in his decisions just like we trust pavel with the puck.

we have a great GM running the wings...he may be controvercial with some decisions ( see: cleary) but we dont know the locker room/office/payroll/personalitys, like he does.

all i know is...we have never tanked a season to get the #1 draft pick. there is honor in life and being a wings fan, i hold that one in my pocket. ( im looking at you chicago/pittsburgh) thats my idea of a team buying the cup. (personally i think the first team out of playoffs gets #1 pick.= no more tanked seasons) EVER.

finally...my overall opinion is that, dont trade the kids unless its almost a sure thing, boyle might be ok, niskanen might be great, kesler is a cancer, stasny would be epic. monster is good by me, ciao sammy, gonna miss you bert, cleary who?, quincey/kindl...well...you coulda shoulda woulda. and last but not least... prepare for mantha!




#2477246 Trade with Sabres?

#2466036 No Suspension for Quincey's Hit on Getzlaf

Posted by luvmnger on 18 December 2013 - 06:37 PM

i personally think getzlaf tried to embellish the hit and caught his toe in a rut.

 

quincy looked like he gave a "bounce off" push to him, getz went for the duck (no pun) and added on to the impact.

 

once he realized (split second) he was going in awkward...it was too late.

 

face....meet wall.

 

but thats just me. look at quincey's reaction....he couldnt believe that getz went down so....funny.




#2460103 Weiss

Posted by luvmnger on 02 December 2013 - 11:13 AM

here here!

Personally, i think his confidence is just low right now. Hes disappointed he got injured when his game was coming on, hes disappointed hes not performing how the organization needs him to, and hes disappointed hes on the 4th line with dumb and dumber. Thatll kill anyones game IMHO.

If he plays with bert n Pasha on the top line for more than 3 games and produces nothing, then we can worry. But until hes given the top 6 role he knows and has thrived in, while being injury free and playing with the worlds best player, i wont rule him out.

Cmon Weisser!!




#2456652 Nyquist Getting the call

Posted by luvmnger on 22 November 2013 - 12:26 PM

i like cleary....but his days with us are done.

 

shanny moved on...cheli moved on...holmstrom retired.

 

they all saw the writing on the wall and know its business.

 

not personal.

 

when you sign a guy for the "personal" in mind....you have lost touch with the business.




#2439403 9/27 Pre-Season GDT : Maple Leafs 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by luvmnger on 27 September 2013 - 07:40 PM

Hopefully they'll have some great hits and climb the charts.

ahh, i remember their first release..."what am i to you?"

followed up by the ballad..." nobody likes me"

that ones got legs early this year.




#2438925 Pro-Bruins "writer" article on Wings

Posted by luvmnger on 25 September 2013 - 01:41 PM

all i got out of that was...."we are scared to death that now we have finally reached the top of the east...the wings are going to knock us down a few notches"

 

"thanks west for sending your best"

 

detroit chicago stanley cup....now no one in the east gets the "token" invite.
