#2590534 4/7 GDT : Carolina Hurricanes 2 at Red Wings 3

Carolina and Montreal without Pacioretty


We barely beat Carolina today at home.

#2582483 Mrazek to start how many games?

Posted by greenrebellion on 16 March 2015 - 10:44 AM

Having a 3rd defenseman when mrazek plays (given his puck handling abilities) is likely part of the reason the team plays better with him in net.

Datsyuk specifically asked for glendening on his line

Whatever happened to the rule that no opposing player's skates could be in the crease during a goal? I remember when Hull's skate was in the crease on Dallas' cup winning goal, and people still cry about it. Nowadays, that would be nothing. lol


That rule was changed over a decade ago, where have you been!

#2577026 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by greenrebellion on 01 March 2015 - 10:18 PM

Ya well, name just one player, Manager or GM that has ever batted 1000.

Holland doesn't regret the Legrand trade. The organization wanted to continue the streak and that wasn't happening with Andersson on the top line.

Fans may not agree with making a push for the playoffs and giving up Jarnkrok but the trade did accomplish its goal.

I would make that deal again today as it is highly probable we miss the playoffs without Legwand. The streak may mean nothing to many fans but it does mean something to the coaches, the players, the management, the Illitch's etc.

#2576776 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

The people upset at this deal are the same people throwing Ferraro and Callahan into every trade proposal thinking they have value.


Two fringe prospects and a second round pick (with a 3rd possibly coming back our way) for a guy on pace for 25 goals who can fill in nicely for the hole left by Franzen.  Strengthens the top six nicely without having to give up one of our premium prospects.  Kenny can trade down in the draft and get the 2nd rounder back.  Nice deal!

Where's Todd Bertuzzi when you need him?

#2571545 Does Kenny Hate Mickey?

Posted by greenrebellion on 17 February 2015 - 05:52 PM

I'm not distracting anything. He's not as good as he was, he sounds like he's drunk half the time, and I don't think he'll be in the booth much longer.


I've listened to Redmond since I was 5 years old and started watching Wings games, so I'll take the guy no matter how he sounds.  


Plus, Redmond drunk off his @ss would still be way better than Osgood.

#2569379 What should we do with the Monster?

After Mrazek's recent call-up and play in net, I'm more than comfortable with the Wings trading Gustavsson at the deadline -- if Jimmy is healthy.

I can't imagine Gustavsson is going to be re-signed in the offseason -- give him a shot at firming up a backup role elsewhere.


No thanks, I'd rather keep Gustavsson and make sure Mrazek gets as much playing time as possible rather than backing up Howie.

#2568899 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by greenrebellion on 06 February 2015 - 12:43 PM

I've finalized my list of preferred trade deadline acquisitions, and I don't think either would be expensive or unrealistic.  I want Cody Franson and Drew Stafford.  With those two pieces, we win the Stanley Cup. 

What does Stafford add to the lineup? Doesn't seem like a big upgrade. Also not sure if there is enough playing time to go around once Franzen is back.

#2566044 What should we do with the Monster?

Getting rid of Gus would be extremely dumb. Goalie depth is a very good thing to have and mrazek can keep working the kinks out of his game in the AHL.

wow what a handcuff

And people think we have it bad with Franzen!

When it comes to evaluating his own players I think everyone can agree he excels there. He struggled in the trade and free agency department.

He has admitted to having a conservative trading approach because you need youth to survive in the cap world. So I think his approach is proving to be quite successful in the trading department as well.

Maybe Holland knows what he's doing after all!

Who else knew Helm wouldn't score there? 


He's predictable, I still love the guy.
