#2367234 Favorite thing about the Wings this season

Posted by evilmrt on 09 March 2013 - 09:21 PM

my favorite thing about this team is how they blow opportunity after opportunity to earn points they should get playing a bad team.


it's like they don't want to make the playoffs.


Holland wants a new first rounder so he can play them five seasons in GR. 

#2367232 3/9 GDT : Red Wings 0 at Blue Jackets 3

Which was largely done on a roster he inherited & a hot goalie that he got really lucky on.  They missed the playoffs last year by 8 points & he's on the outside looking in again so far this season.  So looks like he's gonna be 1 for 3 in playoff appearances?  Sorry, I for one don't buy into the whole "Stevie is the front office messiah" thing at all.  Anyway there are two internal candidates, Jim Nill & Ryan Martin, that should be ahead of him in that line for Kenny's job if he decides to hang it up in the next couple to few years.


I agree, Nill should be given the GM position. However, we don't know that he isn't completely in tune with Holland on all these decisions. Hopefully Mr. I and/or his kids see what is happening and make the right choice. I'm tired of Kenny and his status quo approach.

The Wings haven't had many 1st round picks because they trade them all.  Brendan Smith was the last one they had I believe.


Thanks for the clarification.  I pulled the 65% out of my ass.  :D


Nope, Riley Sheahan was the last 1st rounder (2010 Draft). McCollum actually was also a 1st round pick (2008), a year after Brendan Smith (2007). 


Before Smith? Kindl (2005). 


So, of the 4 1st round picks the Wings have had since 2000, only one of them, Smith, is decent. 


Not that great. 

#2358527 Rumblings that 2014 Winter Classic will be Wings/Leafs

Posted by evilmrt on 21 February 2013 - 01:58 AM

And it looks like game on for the Winter Classic....the NHL is wisely making a second attempt at Wings/Leafs in the Big House....


From the Toronto Star:


It’s all still very hush-hush, but the Maple Leafs and Red Wings will indeed play next January in the NHL’s next instalment of the Winter Classic.
This year’s game, scheduled for New Year’s Day, was cancelled due to the lockout. It was expected to draw 110,000 fans.
But the Star has learned that the NHL is closing in on final talks with officials at the University of Michigan for use of its football stadium, and with the Detroit Tigers for use of Comerica Park in what would be a weeklong festival of hockey capped of by the NHL game.
“My guess is we will officially announce plans in early spring,” a source told the Star.

#2355287 2/13 GDT : St. Louis Blues 4 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by evilmrt on 13 February 2013 - 10:27 PM

the thing that bugs me is that the guys who are struggling the most like Cleary and Quincey have no accountability, Babs just keeps putting them out there no matter what


will he ever cut their ice time or bench them to send a message?


at this point someone else should get a shot at all those valuable minutes those 2 are wasting


Agree. Cleary is not Drapes, no matter how much they want him to be. Even Drapes got ice time cut.

Have you seen the construction photos for the Joe? It certainly wasn't designed like the Romans built things lol.

It was inferior to the Olympia the moment it opened. It has little to do with age. Thanks, try again.
