In Topic: Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

28 July 2014 - 04:47 PM

I think because the Wings have had such bad luck with injuries the past few years is a reason to believe that that luck has got to change... and because we have had such short seasons the past few years is a reason to believe that the players that need it the most (Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Franzen, Kronwall, Weiss, Helm, Howard) will be getting the rest they need. The fact that Zetterberg has said that he feels like he's years younger and that his back hasn't felt this good in years, is reason to believe that he may have a relatively healthy year. I also think a long summer off will help the other guys listed as well. I think for anyone that states that half the team will be injured after just two months of hockey is a bit ridiculous. Just my opinion...


As I've stated over and over again, I don't have any problem with negative predictions, I have a problem with people predicting the whole team will be injured... or wait for it... My prediction, Cleary sucks... a lot of thought put in to that one...

 

I mean, unless you couldn't tell, I was being a bit sarcastic with my response because I didn't think it would be taken so seriously so I apologize if that was unclear.  Like someone else said, though, perhaps the thread title should be changed because it seems like everyone is predicting what they would "like" to see instead of what they think may logically happen.

It doesn't matter how positive people want to be about particular situations, there are always going to be 'the glass, completely empty' kind of people in the world.

 

As a Red Wings fan, why would you choose to be so negative about the upcoming season? It just doesn't make any sense whatsoever...

 

Why can't all the negative Nancy's and Debbie downers stay out of just one of the very few positive threads that we try to have on here?

 

Nah, it's much more fun to predict that Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Weiss and Helm combine for under 30 games and we finish last in the Conference...

 

I don't want to be negative about the Wings, but I haven't seen anything from this team for about the last 4 or 5 seasons that makes me think the upcoming season will be any different.  I hope I'm wrong, but my prediction (based on what I've observed recently) is that it's going to be another mediocre season.  Besides, who said that all predictions have to be so improbably positive?

My predictions?

 

Half the roster is injured by November and they barely scrape into the playoffs again.


In Topic: Red Wings Target Mike Green

I'd do Tatar, 2nd/3rd, and Kindl (they're going to have to take on some salary to get a higher pick) for Green and a 6th/7th. Seems fair given that Tatar can produce and the Caps will probably get a decent pick out of it.

Would not be surprised if this deal was made because Holland is working on a trade for a dman. Perhaps a roster player may be on the move? Who knows. Either that or he and Andersson will be keeping the pressbox warm for much of the season rather than having a guy like Jurco do it.

 

 

Except that we all know deep down that's never going to happen.  I was willing to give Holland the benefit of the doubt on the off-season so far, but this signing is just ridiculous.  Screw the "agreement" he had with Cleary last year.  The guy is useless.
