#2675868 Boudreau to Minnesota

Posted by ben_usmc on 13 May 2016 - 07:47 AM


It's been one year for crying out loud.  Give the guy a break.  I'm not going to judge him based on one year.  We made it to the playoffs didn't we?  How long has Beaudreau been coaching?

People to seem to forget the vaunted Babcock basically had the same results as Blashill for his final 3 years here.  Getting in the playoffs either the last week/day, and getting stomped in the 1st round.  The big difference is he had an actual veteran team, and superstars with some miles left on them still.

Per the forum rules...


· DO leave your political views at the door. This is a hockey forum, and the only 'Left Wing' and 'Right Wing' topics or comments should be focused on the hockey player position, not on your political one.


I had to made a few edits and cut out a lot of the politics talk and kill it with fire. Politics on LGW was one of the most catastrophic scenarios in the history of the internet... okay maybe not THAT bad, but it was still a brutal disaster. 


Please refrain from any politics talk going forward, it isn't permitted on this site. Thank you.

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

#2585248 3/26 GDT: Sharks 6 at Red Wings 4

Posted by ben_usmc on 26 March 2015 - 02:46 PM

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?

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

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?

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