#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 ?

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.

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.

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.

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.

#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.

#2528988 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by greenrebellion on 01 July 2014 - 07:00 PM

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.
