You can't be serious this early in the season....

#2618598 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by ben_usmc on 01 July 2015 - 10:24 PM

Weren't we $17 million under the cap?  Who gives a s*** if we gave Richards $3 mill for one year?

#2614227 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Posted by ben_usmc on 13 June 2015 - 07:14 PM

Exactly. People are going to lose their s*** over a guy that played 17 games last season and probably would play even less under Blashill. He's a veteran presence in the locker room that the Red Wings feel they need to take care of, for better or worse. His impact as a hockey player will not have any affect on the team going forward.

He sucks as a hockey player.  The Detroit Red Wings are a hockey team, get the f*** off the team already...

#2612942 The "enigmatic" Tomas Jurco: A Thread

Posted by ben_usmc on 02 June 2015 - 09:07 PM

Why all the hate on Jurco?  I get he wasn't the best of the call ups, be he also was the youngest and had the least amount of experience.  Watching him in GR (my limited times in the playoffs) it seemed like the puck just followed up. He has size and skill, he will put it together.

Yeah, if only the Wings could be like the LA Kings, you know, they win every year and never are in danger of missing the playoffs. Or maybe the Blackhawks.  A team like that wouldn't fall into a wildcard spot.  I mean, really, Holland should've had the foresight to get a star goaltender like Devan Dubnyk.


I can't imagine how exhausting it must be to have such unrealistic expectations and the constant negativity as a result.  I don't love the Wings losing, but I think there are fan bases of twenty or so other teams who wouldn't mind having a team like the Red Wings.

Dude we need to win every game by 10 or else everyone on the team sucks

lol look at Kindl's stats this season compared to Brendan Smith's. Kindl has 1 more point and more goals despite playing less than half of the games of Smith. Also Kindl is a + player compared to Brendan's -

Smith is young and has had a revolving door of partners, I think he has gotten better since he's been with Zilidicky, what's Ericssons excuse? Also if we are picking apart young dman, why is Dekeyser also immune?

We are playing much better than they are, bad luck happens. We will win

Good lord people freak out

#2579049 Ericsson "banged up" might not play Friday

Posted by ben_usmc on 05 March 2015 - 07:31 PM

Kindl played very well when he was recalled, i have no issue with giving him another opportunity.

The old subtle inteference bitching, as if they don't do any of the sort

#2570441 DD starting to get the love....

I don't know, Quincey has been pretty good this year and D seems like he's in a bit of a sophmore slump.  

#2563354 Could the Wings be better off trading Pav & Hank for draft picks?

Posted by ben_usmc on 15 January 2015 - 03:21 PM

We have a great chance at winning the cup, what the f*** are you even talking about?

#2549162 Mantha getting closer.

Posted by ben_usmc on 16 November 2014 - 02:01 AM

Is it just me or does Mantha sound more foreign than most of our Swedish and Russian players? 


Edit: and holy s*** I just had the sound on and had to scroll up. I could have swore that was Babcock not Blashill

#2546885 GDT:11/4 Detroit Red Wings vs. Ottawa Senators 7:30p.m

Posted by ben_usmc on 05 November 2014 - 08:27 AM

Wow people are really freaking out.  We played like absolute s*** the last 2 games and almost beat both teams.  Tatar/Jurco just need to adjust, hell it seems as though you can see those 2 slowly emerging from their slumps. Calm down everyone

#2542705 Toronto Radio: Illitch is selling everything and Babs will be Leafs GM

Posted by ben_usmc on 20 October 2014 - 06:46 PM

No chace Mike Illitch is selling the team while his son is taking over day to day operations of Olympia Ent.  Think about this; Illitch is known for being a loyalty/family man.  You really think he'd sell the team out from under his own son?  That would be a huge slap in the face.  I would possibly believe it somewhat if it said Chris Illitch were to be selling the team. I doubt that to be the case as well.  If he did that it would be removing a large part of the legacy the Illitchs have provided for Detroit and the family is much to intrenched in the city for something like that to occur.
