#2450722 Nyquist taking things in stride, with class

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 04 November 2013 - 11:46 AM


My only Hesitation is Jurco is benefiting from Nyquist being boss and feeding him. 


Wouldn't it stand to reason that Jurco would have an equally talented (if not Nyquist) player doing the same for him in the NHL?


I think he has the skill to become a Datsyuk Lite but he definitely needs to work on his skating and positioning.

#2447085 Ericsson out 2-3 weeks

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 22 October 2013 - 01:14 PM

Ericsson will be missed, but is anyone else just absolutely blown away by DeKeyser right now?  The kid hasn't even played half of an NHL season and looks like a top-pairing guy already.  What an incredible signing.

#2444648 Canucks Score Bizarre Own Goal v. Montreal.

Haha, Is it wrong that I never get tired of seeing bad things happening to Luongo?


I don't know, I kind of feel bad for the guy.  He has a great sense of humor and has put up with a lot in terms of Vancouver management.  He's still a good goalie (not really "elite" anymore) but his contract and playing for a Canadian team have really put him in a rough spot.

#2443814 10/12 GDT: Flyers 2 at Red Wings 5

Can you imagine a PK pairing of Glendening and Helm?  That would be dangerous.

#2443567 Mantha signed to ELC

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 12 October 2013 - 03:54 PM

I look at Mantha as Franzen's replacement, but with way more potential.  Hopefully he can make the transition to the AHL when he turns 20 and get on the fast track to the Wings.  Happy about this signing, even though it was pretty much expected.

#2434660 Minnesota debuts new road uniforms

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 01 September 2013 - 09:57 PM

Is it just me or do all of these "new" sweaters just look the same?  It's like teams that want to sell more merch just make an extremely stripped-down version of their old design to lower the material and production costs and... oh wait...

#2428562 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 07 July 2013 - 04:04 PM


Agreed. Not sure whats up with this guy, coming over, playing HALF A SEASON and then acting like he's the big s***. 


Go get Garth Snow to throw money at you if thats how you want to play it. 


Well, currently the Islanders have about $22 million in cap space so I wouldn't call it out of the question.


I also think it's hilarious that they still owe Alexei Yashin $2.2 mil for the next TWO seasons!

#2428340 So.. what are our expectations for this roster?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 07 July 2013 - 07:57 AM

I expect more goal scoring and for the young guys to either step up their game or have a bit of an adjustment period (still).  As for where the Wings end up in the standings or playoffs, that's never a sure thing to predict so I'll just say that I'll enjoy watching this new version of the roster!

Man, that new Dallas sweater is absolutely hideous...

#2423313 Trade/Buyout thread

Wild looking to deal Clutterbuck per Bob McKenzie.

#2423288 Jonathan Ericsson - should we consider trading him?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 29 June 2013 - 05:23 AM

I remember when Ericsson signed his current contract and a lot of forum members thought it was overpayment. Doesn't look so bad now, eh?

#2419938 Paul MacLean won the Jack Adams

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 14 June 2013 - 07:07 PM

Quenneville shouldn't even have been nominated.  After the NBC crew explained that it took Scotty Bowman talking to Kane to get him going again, it seems to me that any off-ice "coaching" that Quenneville gets credit for is actually all Scotty's doing.

#2418793 2013 Stanley Cup Finals - Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 09 June 2013 - 07:48 AM

I think it will be a close series, but I NEVER want to see Patrick Kane win another Cup.  The Bruins know how to get it done so I'm hoping they can seal the deal.

#2412321 Id never seen something like that, that big,'' Keith said.

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 27 May 2013 - 09:41 AM

The Blackhawks will do anything to try to get more PP time, since that seems to be just about the only way they can score on the Wings.

#2405904 Kane, Moulson, St. Louis up for Lady Byng

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 16 May 2013 - 08:00 PM

Kane being nominated is an insult to the award and all previous winners. Hard to not take his off-ice conduct into account here.
