#2647201 1/10 GDT : Red Wings at Anaheim Ducks, 8:00 EST

Posted by Y19 on 10 January 2016 - 09:15 PM



NO, you just have selective memory.  Everyone should learn about human memory when it comes to negative events so I don't have to hear everyone whine about conspiracies against the Wings every time I come on this forum.  LINK


I always try to think of the "off the netting" goal against the Kings whenever I think things are stacked against the Wings.

Won't get claimed and people will still try to include him in a package for Malkin

Mrazek's done a bit more than win three games...

Id start Mrazek every game. Jimmy is a wreck. He needs a conditioning stint in the Sahara.

#2645871 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by kliq on 03 January 2016 - 01:56 PM

Coaches can only play they players the are given. We still need some upgrades in the talent level. Until that happens we will continue to be a .500 team that finishes between 6th and 10th in the EC. Same as we have been for about 5 years now.


The problem with your evaluation, is that in 2015 almost every team hovers around .500. You make it sound like this is exclusive to Detroit. This is what you call parity from a salary cap.


Just look at the records of the top teams in the east, and for the sake of winning % throw OTL into the losses category.


Florida - 22-16

Montreal - 22-18

Detroit - 19-20

Boston - 20-17

Ottawa - 18-20

Tampa - 19-20

Washington - 28-10 (obvious outlier)

NYI - 21-18

NYR - 21-18

NJ - 20-19

Pittsburgh - 19-19

Jurco makes that play with that move at center ice.

Pulkinnen is really getting exposed with top line minutes..

#2625232 Versteeg traded to 'Canes

Posted by LeftWinger on 11 September 2015 - 02:04 PM

Chicago has traded Kris Versteeg, Joakim Nordstrom and a 3rd round pick(2017) to Carolina in exchange for Dennis Robertson, Jake Massie and a 5th round pick(2017.)






...sorry if this is already mentioned somewhere else, but I didn't see it.



I was relieved when it wasn't for Staal!

It is also to be noted that after this trade, the 'Canes have 10, yes TEN picks in the first three rounds over the next two drafts!

#2620664 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Anyone worrying about losing a guy like Andersson, Ferraro, or Callahan on waivers should find more important things to worry about. They're all dime a dozen players.

#2615029 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by amato on 18 June 2015 - 08:02 AM

This article suggests Keith Yandle being traded out of new york.... wonder what it would take to acquire him? 


 His cap hit is extremely cap friendly due to the coyotes keeping half of it but he's a free agent after next season.

#2618560 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 01 July 2015 - 08:26 PM


You don't need to go to forums to see what is obvious.  Green sucks at D, he was a 3rd pairing D-man on the Caps, he was awful against the Rangers, he had two points in 14 games in the playoffs...he had two power play points in the last 2.5 months of the season and his play in general was pretty miserable towards the latter part of the season.  


I just don't see why everyone sees this as an absolute slam dunk deal.


I don't think it's a slam dunk deal.  I've never been much of a Green fan but this defense desperately needs someone who can move the puck and be a threat offensively.  Even if he was a 3rd pairing d-man who played miserably towards the latter part of the last season, Green still put up more points than any Red Wings defenseman.  He also had more goals than any Red Wings defenseman. 


Even with his defensive shortcomings Green will hopefully help keep the Wings from getting pinned in their own zone for so long, in the way that Rafalski's long bomb outlet passes used to keep the other team's forecheck honest.  And a right hander on the point who can actually fire a slapshot should definitely help.  The Wings apparently plan to pair him with Dekeyser, who Babcock called the eraser because of how he fixed his partners mistakes.  Hopefully that will help.


But Green is also injury prone.  Or his production might drop, and if he's not producing then it's certainly not worth his downsides. 


It's not so much that Green is a slam dunk as it is the defense so desperately needs what he hopefully would provide.

Holland said plan is to pair Green with DeKeyser.

#2618443 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

In typical LGWs fashion, the thread about the Richards signing has more pages than the Mike Green one. 

#2617466 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 30 June 2015 - 10:31 AM

It's been said repeatedly in this thread-this year's UFA class *sucks*. Why are people distraught that Kenny doesn't want to play in the muck? We have awesome prospects coming up, and I for one don't want to hamstring this team with overblown contracts on mediocre players that will then turn around and ass eff us when we try to keep all our young guys down the line.

That being said, I certainly wouldn't mind a good trade or two, but I want nothing to do with UFAs this year.

#2606610 ECSF : (4) Washington Capitals vs. (1) New York Rangers

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 May 2015 - 06:31 PM

I have this feeling that I really want ovi to win a cup.
Especially now that he's playing defense and back checking.

I've always wanted him to win a cup
