#2374677 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

If there's no difference on the money, how exactly can Kenny "fumble" this?  Some peope want to be near home and family.  Some young people want to get as far away as possible.  Perhaps he'd feel more pressure to play with the Wings?  If the Wings get him, fine.  If not, no big deal.  I think most people here really don't know that much about him, they just want to "win" the DeKeyser sweepstakes. 


I cannot like this enough.  People need to stop with the "Holland better get this done or its his fault" mentality.  Holland has done everything he can do.  Danny has to make up his mind and sign.  Holland can't make him sign.

Yes indeedy. The downside, of course, is...he's been set up on a silver platter for the Wings. So: if Holland fumbles this, the fans cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war. And all that.


I don't see how Holland can do much more than he already has.


The money is the same.  Holland has promised the kid to start in the NHL.  Its not like Holland has something he can offer the kid that 15 other clubs aren't offering.  His favorite team is the Red Wings so that factors into his favor.


The point is that it isn't on Hollands shoulders at all.  He has done his due diligence.  If the kid signs elsewhere, that his choice.  Not Holland's fault for not being Obi Wan Kenobi.  "Sign here Danny (waves his hand)."  :D

Carmen is spot on.  I went to UM and got an Econ Major, Poli Sci Minor because I wanted to learn how the world works.   The Econ material was educational, but the Political Science was pure unadulterated indoctrination as oppossed to growth and development.


Yes, the NHL is a major committment with major scrifice, but so is everything that comes with that pay scale.  Cory Emmerton is getting paid more than the President of the United States of America.

Hey LGW!  Long time no see.  :ninja:  :bye1:


I was at Jobing Arena tonight and taking photos from the 4th row off the glass, so I figured I'd share some of those shots with you guys (and gals).  Hope you enjoy!


Tonight's game was fun to watch, soooooo many Red Wings fans present! (as expected ofc)

Yeah thanks to Jimmy Howard for the 2 points tonight.


Two words


Jimmy Howard.

He saved their butts approximately 10 times.  I don't think I'm exaggerating with that one.

Tatar had a pretty bad game...


If Tatar had a bad game, please explain to me the game Cleary and Abby had.

How is that slow down crap legal?

you technically only have to be making forward progress. He still is.  Barely. 


It highlights why the shootout is a joke.

I never thought I'd say this, but Tootoo has been one of our best players all season. Man that guy works hard!


I couldn't agree more. He's been awesome for us & I hated his guts when he was a Pred. Sure has changed my outlook on him.

There was no possible way that they could have beat Vancouver on Sunday and they not only beat them, they embarassed them.  They were playing with 8 injuries, less than 24 hours from their last game and using a goalie that was supposed to be resting.  Vancouver had only lost 4 times in regulation. 8-3 and they outshot Vancouver like 13-2 in the 2nd period.



Just like there was no possible way that they could lose to Columbus 3 nights before.


So much for predictions.


Wings 4-2.

The roller coaster continues. Only saw the third and OT, but hard to comprehend from that why the Red Wings looked so flat.

Special teams are a disaster. Need the PP to get a goal in the third with those chances when you aren't on your game otherwise.

Disappointing outcome against a rookie goalie. Did they even break 20 SOG?

Can we also put to rest the Jimmy Howard is average crap. This team was totally out of gas, and he comes up huge.

There's a little lesson for us in faith.
