Wonder if jimmy is hurt or if they're preparing for the shootout.

#2555872 Vaya con dios Damien Brunner

Posted by kipwinger on 11 December 2014 - 06:19 PM

Apples to oranges.

At only 23, there's a chance Nestrasil may still have some upside and he can still be retained as a restricted free agent at the end of the season if he works out. He's also got four inches and 20+ lbs. over Brunner, and has the versatility to line up at both center and wing. He also has an easily bury-able cap hit that is a fraction of Brunners.

On the other hand... At almost 29, Brunner pretty much is what he is. A small winger who hasn't been able to hang onto a top six role in what amounts to about two seasons of NHL experience, but doesn't have the tools to play in his own end and is basically useless in a bottom six role.He also carries an unfriendly cap hit for a player that may end up buried in the AHL. His documented issues with PDB likely also make GM'S apprehensive.

My guess here is that he has refused an assignment to the AHL, which is likely best for him at this point, if he wants to stick at the NHL level.


Next to the amount of words wasted on the waiving of Colton Orr and Frazer Maclaren, that's the most text I've ever seen spent on two players who matter as little as these two do.

Weiss was our best forward tonight in terms of Corsi-for percentage. That, to me, is even more encouraging than the three goals in two games.

Hockey is played on ice not in a basement with an excel computer or by math freaks

#2534257 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by krsmith17 on 14 August 2014 - 01:53 PM

Some people won't be happy, no matter what happens... I have accepted that... It's sad but very true...


I'm really happy that Kenny is going to remain with the club for the foreseeable future. Those of you that aren't... whatever...


There would be 29 other teams lining up to pay Holland crazy amounts of money if he were let go, and for good reason. Same goes for Babcock, but I bet there would still be angry Wings fans if they signed him to an extension. While it's true that you can never please everyone, some people can never be pleased...

#2517546 Wings Roster great on paper ?

Posted by Nev on 27 April 2014 - 08:04 AM

We still desperately need a no 1 D.


We have a #1 D, he's called Niklas Kronwall.


Unless by #1 D, you actually mean franchise D-man.  In which case your options are limited to:  Chara, Weber, Suter, Doughty, Karlsson, Subban, OEL, Keith, Pieterangelo.  Now tell me how you plan to get them.............

#2514172 ADQF | Game 3 | Boston 3 @ Detroit 0, BOS leads series 2-1

Posted by MPT on 22 April 2014 - 10:13 PM

Who said they gave up?  But anyone who has played any sport at any time knows a thing about momentum.  The easy game 2 and 3 goals not only gives Boston confidence, but it gives them the ability to play their game and forces the Wings to change theirs.


good players don't just give up when something doesn't go their way.  They fight the whole way.  This team doesn't.  And that's not Howard's fault.  He made one bad play in a game we lost because the only goal we could score came off a lucky bounce.  So by my count, that's Howard: 1, rest-of-team: infinite.

#2510084 Would You Trade For Matt Greene's Rights?

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 16 April 2014 - 07:07 PM

I wouldn't trade for his rights, but I'd interested in him as a UFA. RH, big, physical, can move the puck. A good #6 to pair with Smith. If the kids aren't ready to make the jump, we need 2 defenceman. A top 4 guy to go with DeKeyser, and a #6. Greene fills one of those needs.

#2508054 4/9 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Pens 4 (SO). Wings clinch playoff spot!

Posted by GoalieManPat on 09 April 2014 - 09:12 PM

Monster is awful. The Pens have about 15 shots and three have gone in the net. Sure, he won games the first half of the season, but his numbers aren't good at all after the new year.

Wings have controlled this game and then that goal goes in. Howard would have six pages of posts if he let that through.


Yet people wanted to anoint him the starter and drop Howard for a bag of broken sticks a month ago lol

#2506213 Detroit says Weiss "Not Getting Better", likely done for year

Posted by Euro_Twins on 05 April 2014 - 03:35 PM

Now Weiss is on drugs and faking an injury? What did I miss here? His wound has inflammation, it's not getting any better, so Holland probably said just to take the recovery slow, and heal up fully and come back with a fresh slate next season being %100 healthy. Too many tinfoil hats bouncing around here.

#2503456 Do you want monster to start tomorrow?

Posted by DickieDunn on 30 March 2014 - 08:33 AM

He'll give up 4 goals, Wings will win 5-4, people will say "Monster should be #1 he wins his games," then tomorrow Kahn will tweet that Gustavsson tweaked his groin and will be out 2 weeks.

If we somehow get this battered team to the playoffs I can't see how Babs doesn't at least get a nomination for coach of the year.

Per mlive. Unbelievable. The Olympics knock down our top two players.


Except both were injured before the Olympics....

#2475383 So when would you make a move and what type?

Posted by dat's sick on 22 January 2014 - 02:38 PM

I disagree with the notion that we're not a cup contender when healthy. Maybe your idea of a contender is only the teams in the top tier (Chi, Pit, Bos, Stl, SJ, Ana), but I see us as being one of few teams that can actually pull an upset against any of the top teams. We have a core of experienced guys that can still go head-to-head with the league's best and match or outmatch them, and we have a support crew of good playoff guys like Franzen and Alfie and young and hungry guys like Tatar, Nyquist, Dekeyser, Smith. 


Don't give up on the season before we see what this team can actually do when healthy or close to it. Tonight, we're going to have a healthy defensive lineup for what, the 5th time this season? It's a good test against the Hawks, even if our depleted forwards and lack of #1 goalie will make it more difficult. 


As for moves, if we do so badly up until the trade deadline that we're basically out of it then I'd be 100% for moving Quincey/Kindl/Bert/Sammy/Cleary/Andersson/Eaves/Tootoo, basically any of the guys that are expendable. A 7th round pick, a conditional 6th, maybe a 2nd or 3rd, I'd take any return we could get. Though I doubt many would be interested. Alfie would have the most value, and sure, if he's not going to have the chance for a playoff run here I hope he gets traded so he gets a shot. Maybe he can still return for next season if he wants 1 more year and doesn't want to move his family anymore. 


Btw, as I understand it Franzen's contract is basically unmovable under the new CBA. If he retires we'd get a cap penalty for the remaining years. He would easily have a ton of value though contrary to what this board thinks. Big goalscorer with a reputation of being huge in the playoffs? Nah, who wants that...
