#2542739 Franzen to 7-day IR

Posted by Mckinley25 on Yesterday, 09:23 PM

Lol most accurate post in here.

Right?! Girls are inferior! Crosby's a whiner so let's call him Cindy! Guys club!

Seriously though, it sucks but we actually have some depth right now.

As with the Varlamov case, I'll withhold any opinion until all the facts are made clear. 

#2542673 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by marcaractac on Yesterday, 04:08 PM

I love how this thread has been reactivated from the depths after 5 games, the Wings are 3-1-1 without their best player, have gone toe to toe with 2 of the best teams in the league, look incredibly energetic and speedy, and have a tremendous PK. 


Whats not to like? 


Screw the 'experts'. They're not the ones out there on the ice. And so far, I like what i've seen (outside of the first two periods of Wednesdays game, but even then we got a point out of it)


I also love that Quincey has been a positive contribution to the teams success. Especially on the PK.

#2542674 Lightning's Hedman out 4-6 weeks with broken finger

Posted by rick zombo on Yesterday, 04:10 PM

Hedman out six weeks? Stamkos broke his leg last year?

Using LGWs logic this obviously means Yzerman's a terrible GM.

#2542652 Franzen to 7-day IR

Posted by wings4thecup06 on Yesterday, 03:07 PM

I think after last years debacle, the Wings are being cautious here, and rightfully so, especially with Franzen off to such a good start. 


Also, it delays the inevitable roster crunch decision for a little while longer - gives Nestrasil a few more games to hopefully impress. IMO they need to waive Cleary and send him down to GR rather than the easy way out (which would be to send Jurco back to GR)

#2542595 Pavel Datsyuk update?

Posted by krsmith17 on Yesterday, 11:36 AM

I don't mind those lines but if you're going to break up the kid line by taking Jurco off and inserting Nyquist, why not send Jurco down to the minors and put Weiss in the lineup...


I'd rather Helm - Weiss - Nestrasil to be honest. This coming from the biggest Jurco fan there is. He needs more time in GR in my opinion...

Yeah, or scratch Nestrasil but I think sooner or later (once everyone is healthy) one of Nestrasil or Jurco will have to be sent down, and I'd prefer it be Jurco.

Also, power-play units are:


Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Helm

Kronwall - Nyquist


Nestrasil - Sheahan - Jurco

DeKeyser - Tatar

Guy walks into The Home Depot.

Asks the greeter "Where can I find Milan Lucic?

The greeter says: "Tools, Aisle Six".

anytime they lose its a blessing I hope mtl runs with the divison and bos sinks low


Or you know, the Wings...

#2541762 Weiss

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 17 October 2014 - 05:24 PM

Still makes sense.
Kenny didn't want XO (Babs guy on the opening roster).
Babs respond with benching Weiss, Kenny's (guy) signature.

Holland and Babs aren't teenaged girls in a fight over a favorite lipstick. Good grief.

#2541670 Lucic has a meltdown as Bruins get smacked by Habs...again

Posted by kipwinger on 17 October 2014 - 09:07 AM

Lucic had such great timing with making a physical impact in the game. 1:40 left when your team is down a goal??

Taunting the Habs fans. Then gets tossed for yelling at the refs. Nice going big boy. You so smart.


He needs to grow up and not let his emotions get the best of him, make an impact in the game on the ice when it matters most.



In other news: Loved seeing him get bodied down by Emelin early in the game.



I love Emelin.  Dude hits like a ton of bricks.  What are the odds Marchenko is his cousin or something?  That'd be nice. 

Could have used Thornton and Boychuk for that game. Habs are a bunch of ******* and as always Price has to bail them out. What happened to the big bad Bruins? If you lose against a hatred rival at least do it in style, fight Weise or but everything that moves. Also laser pointers at a hockey game? Just stupid


Yes, drag Dale Weise out of the press box and KILL HIM!!!!  Who cares if he didn't dress for the game, gotta show the league what Boston Strong really means bro!

#2540568 Babcock " I dont think it will be my final year here"

Posted by kipwinger on 13 October 2014 - 07:34 PM

Kip, I do like those lines but not exactly what I'd go with, but then again, not many people are going to agree on the exact same lines and defense pairings... Who would you scratch / send down / call up with that option available?


My lines would look something like this...


Nyquist - Zetterberg - Franzen

Tatar - Datsyuk - Jurco

Helm - Weiss - Sheahan (I know you'll hate this line with 3 centers but I think it could be a great 3rd line until Weiss gets going...)

Miller - Glendening - Abdelkader


Kronwall - Ericsson

DeKeyser - Smith

Quincey - Ouellet



I largely agree, but you're right, I hate that third line.  Weiss isn't going to get going if you give him two linemates who have never played on the wing for any significant amount of time, and haven't ever really been known for offensive production when at their natural positions. Putting Weiss with nonscorers means he's got to shoulder the offensive load, which is the exact opposite of easing him into it until his confidence returns.  Give him wingers or trade/waive him.  Carolina would pick him up tomorrow (all their centers are hurt and they suck). 


Anyway, heading out for the night.  Good talking to you though.

Ask the GM then why he keeps signing or trading the future for guys that don't fit with the coach ? It's like a boss buying a gaming pc and expects you to do higher end video editing with it (won't work).


The GM has had the exact same philosophy since he took over the position in 1997 and it's been pretty successful.  I'm not sure why you think he should change it for the coach all of a sudden.  We have drafted and developed based on skill for 20+ years.  Our organization (from top to bottom) is founded upon it, our scouts are some of the best in the world at seeing a guy like Gustav Nyquist and imagining what he'll be when he matures.  You want them to stop doing that and change the whole organizational philosophy because you don't like it?  So what?  It works. 


Secondly, stop with thef****** hyperbole will you?  Nobody "traded the future" for anything.  We've got so many NHL ready prospects we can't get them all into the lineup, and we've got even better prospects coming.  It would be a lot easier to talk to you if didn't constantly distort reality to justify some anodyne point you're stuck on for the day. 

#2540514 NY Islanders Acquire Leddy and Boychuk

Posted by Dominator2005 on 13 October 2014 - 02:50 PM

Boychuk is a good defenseman, don't get me wrong, but he's a lot like Brent Seabrook.  He's good defensively, good enough offensively, and worked well within the system he was playing in.  That said, he's not a superstar and shouldn't get paid like one. 


Since Q is getting paid $4.25m I guess that for Boychuk $5m/$5,5m should be enough.

#2539720 10/9 GDT : Bruins 1 at Red Wings 2.

Posted by krsmith17 on 10 October 2014 - 12:15 PM

Dominator, why would you split up our top 4 from last night? Both pairings were great. Kronwall and Ericsson have proven chemistry together and DeKeyser and Smith looked awesome together.


The pairings within a few weeks "should" look like this in my opinion...


Kronwall - Ericsson

DeKeyser - Smith

Ouellet - Quincey
