#2618003 Free agents this off season

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 July 2015 - 01:01 PM

"@TSNBobMcKenzie: O'Reilly signs with BUF. Two year deal at $700K per. One way deal. That's CAL O'Reilly, Ryan's older brother. Guess we know who's next."

Oh Bobby, so misleading :P


I thought you were talking about Bill O'Reilly.  

#2607156 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by Z and D for the C on 11 May 2015 - 10:59 AM

This is insane. Let the guy go. We've made it past the first round once in the last five years, we obviously need some changes.

Agreed. Babcock is completely overrated. He has won at all levels, yeah, but he's had completely stacked teams. I could win at the Olympics if I had Canada's team. The Red Wings have completely underperformed with him as head coach. I don't even want Blashill if he is just like Babcock.

#2602693 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 April 2015 - 11:41 AM


This is a joke. Kronwall has not been very good? Have you forgotten Stamkos has not scored a goal yet in this series? Lots of that is because of Kronwall playing against him. Sure he does not put the points up that Lidstrom did, but Kronwall is doing a fine job imo and we have zero chance of winning game 7 without him. I swear some fans are so ridiculous. 


Now, if Kronners is suspended then the NHL is a complete joke. I am thinking if anything he is fined, but we will see.


You want your number one defenseman to score more than 1G, 5A in the 25 playoff games he's played since Lidstrom retired.  


So no, he hasn't been very good.

The A on Ericsson's jersey is to designate him as atrocious.

Well I told you guys the Wings would lose. Don't expect much from this team. This team is sorry, it's not just a losing streak. Well anyway, you guys all have a great night.

Agenda much? 

#2537551 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Posted by kipwinger on 29 September 2014 - 10:51 AM

I'd rather he not sign until we see how the season turns out.  Coaches have a shelf life and while I don't know if Babcock has reached his...it's certainly possible.  Why not wait to see what happens?  We've got a team that should be pretty competitive.  Lots of good veterans and young up and comers.  If the team stays relatively healthy and still underwhelms, I'd take that as a sign that Babs' has taken the team as far as he can and I'd hand the reigns over to Blashill.  If they play above their heads, or are Cup competitive, re-sign him. 

#2534213 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 14 August 2014 - 09:22 AM

Honestly, I'm disappointed.  


Holland has pretty clearly run out of ideas these last few seasons, so I don't have a lot of hope for significant changes to rebuild the franchise over the next 4 years.  


Who knows though. Maybe he'll finally realize the crap he's done lately isn't working? Maybe??  



If I were Babcock I'd start looking to other teams.

#2529469 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by Shaman on 02 July 2014 - 12:42 PM

Why the hell wouldn't you want to make the playoffs? This isn't pre-lockout days where unless you had the hottest goalie in the history of the game did you even have a hope of causing an upset. 


LA were the number 6 seed in the west this year. 2 years before that they were the number 8 seed. The Devils were the 6 seed that year vs the kings. In 09-10 the Flyers were the number 7 seed in the East and they made the Finals. 


The point I'm making is, if you're roster is good enough to make the playoffs right now, why blow it up, because as we've seen, anything can happen. If you looked at the Rangers roster before the season began, and even after they traded for St Louis, would you still have picked them to beat Pittsburgh? 


This team is good enough to make the playoffs. And if anyone thinks that making the playoffs even if only to play 5 games is less valuable for the young kids experience than missing them completely, then you want your head testing. 


Last season, there were a few mistakes early that were costing us, and then the injury bug hit like Ive never seen. You cannot lose key players for extended periods like that an expect to keep competing, yet somehow we did. All of that experience is frankly, invaluable, such that when Pavel and hank come back healthy they'll be able to lead the way, and our kids last year will be able to provide depth and secondary scoring that every team needs to win. 


There will be ups and downs, but this team is trending up. The fact that we didn't sign a big name free agent on 1 day of the year doesn't mean otherwise.  


This is bunk. Detroit is nothing like LA. LA is built to grind teams out over 7 games. Detroit is built to keep the DMC in business the next few years.

As I said. We're the new Islanders. 


Except they have a young superstar and lots of enforcers. 


We have no reason for fans to attend games.  A boring team full of small players who don't fight and finish middle of the pack.
