#2554734 Tomas Tatar Appreciation Thread

Posted by greenrebellion on 07 December 2014 - 09:52 PM

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.

Weiss with two points which gives him 8 points in this his seventh game.  So good to see him having success!

It isn't exactly highlight reel goals Weiss are scoring here but I'm sure he'll take them :P


From watching youtube clips of all of Weiss's career goals, he never really scores highlight reel goals.  He has a knack for the net and is good at positioning himself to get the puck...hopefully tonight is a sign that he's back in form.  I'm very happy for him, would be HUGE if he could be a legit second line center and put up a 50-55 point pace.

Too much sucking  :(




#2534330 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by greenrebellion on 15 August 2014 - 05:51 PM

Wings fans are over-passionate and unrealistic so not surprised to see the negative reaction here.  There are 30 teams all vying for the same goal and yet if the Wings don't win a cup every 3 or 4 years then the GM is a failure?  The large majority of the teams in this league would give their left nut to have Holland at the helm.  


Good signing, I don't agree with everything he's done, especially in recent years...but this team is positioned with a strong farm and should have a bright future.

More likely that are the number 10 seed.


How do you figure?  You'd have to assume the young players get worse, AHL callups don't contribute, and we somehow have even more injuries than we did last year.  None of which are likely to happen.

Worst place to be in hockey. The Wings are turning into the Calgary Flames. Lingering in mediocrity and Holland is content to just keep the playoff streak alive. Honestly, it will never happen, but shouldn't the Wings consider moving Z and/or Pavel? They aren't true contenders and aren't bad enough to get high draft picks to make an immediate impact (or they rot in Grand Rapids for four years anyways). I don't know, after today, I'm just at a loss. Feel like it might be time to just tear it down entirely and rebuild.


I'm not quite as freaked out as most on this forum.  Quincey is an overpay, we don't have much else to do with the money so it won't really matter.


That said, I could definitely get on board with blowing the team up.  Trading Z and Pavel would net us some very nice picks/prospects....combine those with our current crop of young players and Detroit becomes a very dangerous team in 3 to 4 years.  My biggest fear is that we continue this "rebuild on the fly" (which to date I've generally been supportive of as I assumed FA's still wanted to sign here) and end up as a mediocre team for the next decade.

The playoff streak is incredible and I, for one am glad they traded for Legrand to keep it alive.

I know everyone here wants to compete for the cup every year but with 29 other teams vying for the same thing it just is not realistic. The Wings need to go through their down years just like everyone else.

If they can "rebuild" on the fly and continue to make the playoffs throughout, all the better.

#2514579 ECQF - Game 4 - Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (F/OT)

Posted by greenrebellion on 24 April 2014 - 09:54 AM

Where did I say andersson is good? The guy is a plug as well
Jurco is what we need as we struggle to score goals, not a slow,defensively liable, useless turnover machine prone to taking penalties against the best PP in the league..... the guy brings down whatever line he plays on

That line has done nothing in this series. Mixing it up by giving bert a shot for one game wont matter and most likely boosts ourpower play a bit.

Next year's needs?  A new coach.

A few days ago people wanted him to win the Jack Adams. Difficult for coaching to overcome the talent gap between the two teams. Despite this forums strange beliefs, there is no magic line combo that will turn the Wings into Cup favorites.

This forum has become pretty laughable with all the bashing that goes on here.

Mad props to Babcock, man did he have a game plan going into that game and he sold the message to the team.

Man you guys complain and whine a lot. Wings are outplaying the President Trophy winners, embrace it.

It will be a crime if Babcock doesn't win the Jack Adams.
