OMG. 0 SOG on 3 PP. That has to be a record.

Nestrasil needs to be benched for Weiss, and Mantha needs to be called up as soon as he's able to play.

Howard can't stop a beach ball


#2540610 Fan turnout at last night's Panthers' game

Posted by ShanahanMan on 14 October 2014 - 10:15 AM

Watched some on TV. Was seriously a joke, worse turnout I've ever seen at a major sporting event, including preseason games. It was just a sea of empty seats. Team obviously needs to be moved and rebranded. One hockey team for Florida is enough. 




#2537568 Babcock " I dont think it will be my final year here"

Posted by ShanahanMan on 29 September 2014 - 12:03 PM

Another one of these ridiculous threads.... everytime Babcock farts there seems to be more speculation that he is not happy (even though he says he is) and he is going somewhere (probably Toronto because they are already planning their Stanley Cup Parade).

 

The other hilarious thing is that folks believe that replacing a battle tested and proven winner/veteran/warrior/genius (Mr. B-cock) with a green eared but eager rookie (Blashill) is somehow going to ward off massive debilitating injuries to key players, improve goalie consistency, prevent hall of fame legends from ever retiring, strengthen backup goalie's groinal area, add testoterone back into the balls of mules AND be that which attracts every key free agent to want to sign up for all of this (deep breath) will undoubtedly improve things.

 

Babcock + Holland + Health + Experience = Success wait and see

Oh yes, cause that combo has done wonders for us since 09. 




#2537197 Datsyuk 2nd degree separated shoulder injury - out approx 4 weeks

Posted by ShanahanMan on 24 September 2014 - 03:43 PM

Haha. I'm surprised it took as long as it did. 2 games in and already 3 men down.

 

Mantha

Helm

Datsyuk

 

TWO PRESEASON GAMES IN.

More interested than anything else to see how Weiss is doing




#2536293 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

Signing Quincey to that ridiculous contract is what sparked all of this. He knows he's a better player and feels embarrassed he has to settle for a fraction of what Quincey got.


#2533283 Samuelsson signs new contract....... with Djurgarden.

Where's the loyalty, Kenny?


#2532171 Red Wings & the Media

Posted by ShanahanMan on 15 July 2014 - 04:19 PM

 
I think it's ironic that he criticizes how the Wings treat bloggers differently yet in this very piece he shows why they should be.
 
It's full out slander on John Hahn with absolutely zero actual evidence but "anonymous" quotes backing his own opinion of him.
 
A lot of this piece just rubs me the wrong way....


They're anonymous because many currently work within the Wings org and obviously don't want to jeopardize their jobs.


#2531665 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

So it's true. He listens to the expert opinions of the staff he pays for this sort of thing. What an idiot.

 

I bet those same experts told him to resign Samuelsson, Williams, Bertuzzi and Quincey.

 

Seems to me like he needs to find new experts. 


I was just going to post that. What exactly does he expect his fellow teammates to say about him? Of course they are gonna say they enjoy having him around. Of course they are going to say they 'want' him back because if he does end up back in the locker room it would create unneeded friction.

 

It's up to Holland to read between the lines here and make the best decision for the team.

Exactly. The GM is supposed to be the freaking voice of reason for god's sakes, that's why he's the GM. Not just leave all decisions up to the players.

Speaking of not valuing fans.....

 

This from Art Regner's latest article:

 

 en the Detroit Red Wings signed Daniel Cleary last season, I told Detroit general manager Ken Holland that it was going to be an unpopular move with the fans. Holland looked at me and said, "Who do I listen to on Cleary, the fans or the guys in the room, my players and my coach? "Everybody wanted me to bring Cleary back."

The guy could just give two s***s about the fanbase.

I can't believe theyf****** told you that. WTF is wrong with them?

 

Too much kool-aid. 




#2531577 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

So Dallas or Tampa? Kings are my video game team when someone already picked the Wings, but I'd feel/labeled as a band-wagoner.

 

Meh. Would prefer a team on the east or at least central so I can watch the games. 

 

Being in Boston, might start following the Bruins closer. Though I hate a ton of players on the team, I think Chiarell is the best GM in the NHL.

Wow. Seriously?

I can't believe the Red Wings ticket office thinks Billy Beane is the team's GM.

(But seriously that's totally absurd if true.)

 

Yep, and I'm apparently one of very few people who's had any complaints. 

 

If true, for god's sakes people, CALL AND MAKE YOUR OPINIONS HEARD OR THINGS WILL NOT CHANGE.
