#2332061 Perpetual line shuffling

wait one second!

ICE GIRLS!.....WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?


#2330130 White as home jerseys or road jerseys?

Posted by luvmnger on 26 September 2012 - 07:14 PM

the whole idea behind wearing white at home is to draw the colors from other teams in for the fans. face it, if your a islanders fan, and they wear colors at home...everyone comes in wearing white. no fun.

come on wings...go back to white at home. they just look better.


#2329951 Rebuild or retool?

Posted by luvmnger on 24 September 2012 - 09:06 PM

my take was that we needed to hit up the ole' " offer sheet on evander kane, kyle turris, etc...) and lose the draft picks.

that is a retool idea that carries water. we have lots of talent coming up from the griffins in the next 3-5 years. establishing the next core is important to do now!

the trade front is drying up, our used parts are great, but not worth much out in trade. UFA and offer sheets are the next best thing.

when was the last notable trade for the wings? Lang? seems like the other owners are done with us, so why worry about making them mad?

hell, we had to go through yzerman to get quincey...i dont think the other 29 teams are going to help us until we have 20 year olds to sell.

that will not happen unless we tank ala edmonton style.

#2310852 who's on the outs if we sign multiple forwards?

Posted by luvmnger on 28 June 2012 - 07:26 PM

eaves has stated he is going to be ready, and he signed a 3 year last season. he is a scorer turned grinder...his value is more than we give him.

abdelkader /bertuzzi / miller are more expendable.


#2310513 Steve Ott - anyone interested in getting him?

Posted by luvmnger on 27 June 2012 - 04:52 PM

no no no....no trades.

the right pieces are in free agency.

parise
suter
schultz
semin
garrison
prust
doan
clemmenssen (sp?)

my priorities in that order



just got to grab em'

sell the dream baby!


#2310204 Red Wings make contract offer to D Justin Schultz

Posted by luvmnger on 26 June 2012 - 07:45 PM

yea...we need that again.

brunner
schultz
suter
parise
prust

tingles? yea....then we can all bicker who should be the backup goalie for a week.


#2308704 Top Swiss-leaguer Brunner to sign with Wings, Babcock has big plans

Posted by luvmnger on 22 June 2012 - 10:38 AM

Unless he's terrible during the preseason, I think he needs to be on the big club from the start. You can't take a 26 year old scoring champion of another league, that multiple teams wanted and put him in the minors. That would really affect our ability to sign other players like this in the future knowing that they'll probably be sent to the AHL if they sign with Detroit. I don't see a problem giving him at least 4th line minutes.

definately!
this would send a message to all the future talent overseas. wings promote on talent! not time served.


#2306192 Message to Ken Holland...

Posted by luvmnger on 09 June 2012 - 12:15 PM

Suter and Garrison maybe but not Weber.


i'll second that ...and up the ante with a schultz signing.


#2303310 Who's going to make it big if anyone?

Posted by luvmnger on 25 May 2012 - 11:45 PM

I'll be the 1st to admit that I'm not the most informed when it comes to Red Wing prospects, but from what I've seen/read - there's not alot of high-end talent coming up...I really do hope I'm wrong.


Agreed.

And to think the Oilers with all their top picks may become a top-end team for several years while our beloved Red Wings slowly slide down the ranks...Retro 80's anyone?

well you can keep that little tid bit to yo-self, pal. we dont speak like that up here. hehehehe.

#2280378 Wings recall Chris Conner

Posted by luvmnger on 08 April 2012 - 06:12 PM

Conner in my opinion is a smaller Helm. he flies on the ice, agitates opponents, and goes way too fast for his own hands at the goal.

stick him in the phone booth with Pavel and teach him control.

i like the call up!

replace Emmerton.

somebody anger Franzen. tell him Rinne kicked his puppy.

GO WINGS!
