#2255308 If we got Selanne..

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 11 February 2012 - 09:02 PM

I love how everyone assumes Hudler and Kindl are the asking price for any team's star offensive player. Selanne won't be a Red Wing, and please, no more lines threads...

#2243894 Cherry rips Holland

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 10 January 2012 - 04:41 PM

Get rid of the instigator and I bet you'd see more guys on the current roster drop the mitts. The Wings are just coached not to take unnecessary penalties and I think people calling for Holland to get a "tough guy" for the 4th line tend to forget this at times. The only real need I see for this team is a consistent goal-scoring winger for the top six, but I'd rather Holland wait until the offseason than give up too much to get one extra piece.

Oh, and Don Cherry still thinks it's the 70s for some reason. He has no real grip on hockey in the modern era.

It would be nice if NHL officials started making calls in his favor like they do for every other goalie in the league. We all know Holland won't trade for an enforcer.

#2235267 Crosby has "concussion symptoms"

I think those defending Crosby are looking at the situation a bit askew. He adds an excitement to the league when he's playing, but to say it would be a huge blow to the NHL if he never played again is reaching.

2 penalties, no points and only 1 shot on goal so far against the Blues. Funny how he doesn't look so awesome when not playing one of the worst teams in the league...

This whole re-draft is so pointless and shows how bored hockey writers are at this time of the year.

Oh, another navy blue and light blue colored sweater with a circular logo? Bleh...

How is biting someone who sticks his or her hand in your face a "sadistic" behavior? You're saying that if someone were trying to reach into your mouth in a violent fashion, you would just let them do it? I just cannot comprehend your logic in saying that if you bite someone in a hockey game you're going to be the next Jeffrey Dahmer. I don't agree with biting as I think it's childish and unsportmanslike, but not a sign of a mental disorder or instability.

I really don't get the hate for Kesler for talking trash on the ice. Have none of you played sports before?

#2175515 Interesting article about possible changes

Am I the only one in favor of bringing back Miller? Sure, he doesn't score much, but I like his defensive game. I still like him as our 13th forward, which would give Mursak and whoever else more playing time.

Please.. please.. PLEASE no O'Halloran... at least not in series-deciding games...

#2134758 Ken Daniels on VS?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 22 March 2011 - 09:09 PM

To me he is pretty much "the voice of the Red Wings," so it's weird hearing him call a game for other teams (I believe he did a Flyers vs. Rangers game a few weeks ago as well). Any time I don't have to listen to Doc Emerick on Versus is a win, in my book. :thumbup:

#2134618 Helm

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 22 March 2011 - 03:05 PM

Despite all of the stars on this team, Helm is my favorite player for the reasons mentioned: he works hard every shift, is great defensively and has awesome speed. He might not be the most skilled guy but you can't help but get excited every time he's out there.

#2131240 3/16 GDT: Capitals 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 16 March 2011 - 09:30 PM

Great game overall, but I'm now starting to agree about Franzen floating. He's just about the only one on the team that looks like he's not even making an effort. I really hope he decides to show up in the playoffs...

#2126044 Abdelkader

when eaves is ready ABBY should ride the pine. INVISIBLE.

Even though he doesn't play a huge role on this team, it's pretty easy to see that the Wings could use Eaves right now. He works hard on the PK and has pretty decent chemistry with Helm and Draper. We could have used more effective 3rd and 4th lines last night.
