#2522524 Redwings great R/H D men.............?

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 02 June 2014 - 12:53 PM

So we are looking for that great r/h shot from the blueline but who have we actually had that has been a standout in that role during the past 20 years. Rafalski was a high point scorer and maybe the only one that stands out. Cheli was at the end of his career and not putting up big numbers during his stint on the Wings blueline. So maybe as far back as Murph in the late 90's as the last one. So why is it all of a sudden a top situation for the brass to address? 

I say we go with the best available D man we can get and wait for Sproul and Marchenko to come thru. Please dont waste money on a guy who's only produced once so far in his NHL stint.




#2520664 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

If we could sign Hayes, draft Brendan Perlini, and swing a trade for the Caps' Tom Wilson, we'd have a crazy-bright future, up front and on the back end and in net (Mrazek).

use to watch Brendan's dad Fred play over here in the UK in the 90's, if he finds the net like his dad he'll be ok.




#2519731 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Mantha will be on the roster before xmas, I'd give him a spot on Pav and Z's line getting him to learn what it takes from

the best 2 guys he could. They'll make him see what it takes to be the best and that its a 2 way game in Detroit. 

The kid is just what this team needs a 6'5" 200lb+ scoring winger. Babs didn't travel all the way to Val'd or for nothing,

and from all accounts he liked what he saw.




#2519700 Will Mantha join GR after the QMJHL playoffs?

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 08 May 2014 - 01:44 AM

2 more goals last night although Val d'or drops the game in OT.

 

thats 22 goals in 21 playoff games, think we may have something here




#2518321 Red Wings expect changes for 2014 - 2015

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 30 April 2014 - 06:00 AM

In an ideal world Ericsson would be on the 3rd pair with Marchenko and we pick up a top guy to pair with Dekeyeser.




#2517531 Fedor Malykhin

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 27 April 2014 - 06:16 AM

rumor of Salavet Yulaev Ufa putting in an offer to Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg for his services. I get the feeling this might be to see if the Redwings are 

 

really interested in him. From what i've seen of him he is worth a gamble on a 1 year contract, solid 2 way player who has represented Russia this year 

 

and looks like making the worlds roster too.

 

 

ps, yes that is him in my profile pic #98




#2517208 ECQF - Game 5 - Red Wings at Bruins - 3:00 PM EST

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 26 April 2014 - 05:07 PM

well that was a playoff series none of us expected us to win and 95% of us never thought we'd get into. They kids got us in and 

 

after their success in the Calder last year this series has taught them what its all about in the big boys playoffs. It'll stand them in

 

good stead for the future. We have probably seen Alfie's last game in the NHL tonight and also at least 4 as Redwings. 

 

The Bruins showed they are a good side, and also that big body's with skill usually prevail. I can't fault our guys for their effort

 

just the better side won out. Roll on next year and hopefully some fresh faces with some size joining the roster.




#2512707 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Bruins 4 - Series tied 1-1

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 20 April 2014 - 04:54 PM

im afraid Jimmy set the tone for this game with that awful play for the first goal and it just went down hill from there. hey we came away with a split , we have gotta win tues for a chance to take it to 6 games i feel.

will some one for the love of god tell me what the f### is Tom Renney's job in Detroit!?!?!!? 

the PP has been brutal all year and its carrying on into the post season. 

 

and after we get ourself back in the game we shot ourself in the foot with some crap zone coverage.

do we go for it in the 3rd or do we take them back to the joe at 1-1. at the end of the day we can lose 7-1

and itll still only counts as one lost game. Ill admit i thought we'd be 0-2 going back to the Joe so im very

happy splitting the first 2.
