#2529580 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by greenrebellion on 02 July 2014 - 05:49 PM

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

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.

#2500129 3/23 GDT: Red Wings vs Wild

Posted by greenrebellion on 23 March 2014 - 08:57 PM

I'll admit when the Wings should be getting penalties and there's times when I even state that we've got away with them, but when you blow calls as bad as the slash on Kronner that lead to a goal then you have something to complain about.

People ***** about practically every play in every game. It is tiring.

#2500076 3/23 GDT: Red Wings vs Wild

Posted by greenrebellion on 23 March 2014 - 08:49 PM

So do you think the Wild need help from the refs, cause clearly the rest of us don't.  2nd goal was BS.

Bad calls happen all the time. It evens out. Every fan forum for every team is filled with fools who think the world is rigged against them. Psychologists have studied the phenomenon...its called selective memory, give it a rest.

This forum is barely readable anymore these days with all the incessant whining about the refs.

Wings have been completely outplayed today, end of story.

Need Franzen to come alive in the third.

#2497671 3/20 GDT - Penguins 4 at Red Wings 5 (OT)

Posted by greenrebellion on 20 March 2014 - 07:34 PM

It was a very, very sloppy first 20 mins. I'm mostly talking about the d-zone, of course. We were ok in the o-zone, but didn't generate much in the way of scoring chances.

There is a difference between outmatched and sloppy. All things considered I felt they held their own in the d-zone in the first.

#2497200 Maple Leafs 2 @ Red Wings 3

Posted by greenrebellion on 19 March 2014 - 05:38 AM

I don't know if it's all on bad coaching or all on the players or somewhere in between or something else entirely...but we are absolutely horrific at dealing with teams when they hit another gear and ratchet up the compete and press, press, press. It's like we get scared and confused and panicky and we just collapse because OMG WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO BE DOING I FORGOT WHO I'M SUPPOSED TO BE COVERING I'D BETTER JUST STAND IN FRONT OF JIMMY.


It wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that we are missing 2/3rds of our regulars would it??????????

Except both were injured before the Olympics....


Don't let facts get in the way of the drama that is LGW today.
