#2491754 Red Wings have Recalled Pulkkinen from Grand Rapids

Looks like it's doubtful of him playing tonight, but I could see him playing the next game since it's back to back

#2491361 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

I read somewhere today that Vancouver wanted nyquist, Tatar, mantha and our 1st in 2014 for Kessler. I don't have the "source" at hand but that was said to be the ask for him.


Imagine the mob if that trade happened... lol

I don't mind it becoming a second if we make playoffs cause then we have a top 6 of datsyuk, z, franzen Alfie legwand, and nyquist.... That's fine by me

Has KH done anything worthwhile since Stuart and hossa? Seems all he has done is screw up

#2489795 3/4 GDT: Red Wings at Devils

I don think people understand how s*** trickles down. When you are missing your top players, the kids have to play against top pairs instead of 2nd, 3rd pairs. Which then has our weakest lines that shouldn't be in the NHL on the ice for 1/2 the game. When we don't have your top centers, the defense has to make up for them as well, in the zone D is a 3 man system, s***ty centers help break down our d coverage. Go figure that s***ty D means s***ty goaltending because of all the chances, turnovers, bad coverage and fatigue but hey let's just blame Howard, obviously his fault lol

I do love how Ericsson spearing the puck out of Howard's glove and no one picking up the rebound guy that was behind the D was also Howard's fault. He could have done a better job controlling the rebound but he also didn't let it sit 3 feet dead center in front of him off a quick shot by jagr. It's pretty easy to blame Howard when our D is playing terrible and out centers are lead by Anderson lol

#2479720 What's wrong with Pasha? (Mod warning post #57)

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 01 February 2014 - 07:38 PM

I don't understand how people really think Pasha would rather go to the Olympics in "non game shape" and a month + off instead of playing and going in "in game shape."

Pavel Datsyuk would want to go into the Olympics at the top of his game and full steam, not go in after not playing a month plus. So no I don't buy the crap that he is faking an injury.

I do believe he wants to make sure he is a 100% healthy before he plays so that he doesn't end up hurt again in a week and miss another month.

#2475305 1/22 GDT : Blackhawks 4 at Red Wings 5 (SO)

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 22 January 2014 - 09:59 AM

I like to stay positive but we are going to need 100% effort tonight and maybe some puck luck. Hockey Gods, we deserve some love tonight. The help against the kings I hope was only just the start.

#2474893 1/20 GDT: Blues 4 @ Red Wings 1

No word on why Howard is out. He was flexing his knee after covering puck late in first period. But Mickey Redmond said he might be sick.

#2470095 Howard on U.S. Olympic Roster

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 01 January 2014 - 05:51 PM

I don't think bishop should... Howard isn't just going for his performance this year, they also pick for the future years and the experience, bishop has player what 3-4 months of good hockey, Howard 3 years... Miller won't be around next year which could leave a tandem of Howard and Quick which I believe they are confident in when both are at the top of their game... Bishop hasn't even played playoffs has he, and people think he is ready for the drive of the Olympics?

#2468351 Blockbuster deal?

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 29 December 2013 - 06:27 PM

I might be in the that small party that doesn't want a trade at this point. I'm not saying this team is a bust and won't make playoffs but in terms of trade we don't have the cap room or pieces to make something happen that makes us a contender.

Guys we want to trade Cleary, Quincey, bertuzzi, and franzen are not that highly desired by other teams. As far as the players with value to trade are our young prospects that have cheap contracts. You can't replace them with someone who makes more because of cap room and in the end a slight upgrade and more contract won't help anything when you still have those original 4 eating up cap and ice time.

I rather just muscle through the season and try to pick up a key asset in the off season when cleary, Quincey, bertuzzi, Sammy are all off the books... Heck only 1 of them should be playing per night and they take about 2/3 players worth of roster.

In the end there is no short term solution that makes us legit contenders this season but if we push through, bring up kids, and add the RIGHT pieces not the "panic" piece it will be a lot better situation for us long run.
