#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.




#2501917 3/27 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs. Red Wings 4

Hit the net Andersson you goddamn plug!  It's af****** 2 on 1!




#2499332 3/22 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Wild 2

Posted by puckbags on 22 March 2014 - 05:53 PM

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.




#2491333 Datsyuk shut down for 3 weeks

Posted by GoalieManPat on 05 March 2014 - 08:22 PM

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...

#2458241 I'd like to talk about this off-season/next season

Posted by Euro_Twins on 26 November 2013 - 07:43 AM

I'd like to see:
 
Z-Dats-Mantha
Tatar-Helm-Nyquist
Franzen-Weiss-Jurco
Callahan-Abdelkader-Sheahan
Ferraro
 
Kronwall-DeKeyser
Ericsson-Smith
Ouellet-Sproul
Kindl/Almqvist (fight for ice time and a spot)
 
 
I think Mantha is the exception.  He's a giant power forward who can dangle and score.  He should be on the top line with Z and Dats and eat the Calder trophy for breakfast, lunch and supper.  Keep Helm on the 2nd line cause he's taking it and owning it.  Weiss can be a slightly expensive shutdown guy until his scoring touch comes back, which it should with wingers like Franzen and Jurco, who I expect good things from at the NHL level.  I want to see that 4th line annoy and destroy.  I don't care if they get a goal all year, which I'm sure they would, but regardless I just want them to hit everything.  Ouellet and Sproul should be on the team next season with Marchenko next in line from what I hear. 
 
If no free agent that is the likes of Vanek or someone of that caliber wants to sign, that team above could compete for the Cup.


Maybe in 4/5 years, as of now that lineup has 8 rookies, and 4 guys with 1-1.5 years nhl experience. I know we're all high on our prospects and all, but that team would be very lucky to make the playoffs, and they sure as hell won't be winning a cup.

#2456295 11/21 GDT: Hurricanes 3 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Crymson on 21 November 2013 - 09:09 PM

I really despise Dan Cleary, and Babcock's inexplicable devotion to him is beginning to seriously perturb me. I understand that Quincey must play, as there are no other defensemen available. But it was clearly unnecessary for Cleary to be on this team to begin with, let alone playing in every game, let alone playing on the first line. It is a !@#$ing travesty. Put ANY FORWARD but Cleary there. LITERALLY ANY OF THEM. Every single one forward on this team would do better than him. This is not an exaggeration, and it makes the issue infuriating.




#2454970 Michael Del Zotto

Posted by dat's sick on 18 November 2013 - 10:08 AM

I'm not sure Del Zotto is what we need. Another young guy prone to defensive mistakes? I'd rather bring up Oullet or Sproul or AA.

We need either high-end talent or a steady veteran #5-7.
