#2477237 Whom to blame for this goal? A referee or the goalie?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 26 January 2014 - 10:12 AM

Feel bad for the goalie, but with the game on the line why are you in the corner, chatting with fans?  There's staying loose and then there's just not having your head in the game.  What's being overlooked here is the very smart play by the winning team.

#2473727 Carter Hutton's Save of the Year

Nice save, but if the Flyers' player gets off a real shot there then that goes in the back of the net.

#2470334 Alexey Marchenko called up

I think the Wings' front office just wants to get a look at as many prospects as it can at the NHL level. It's not really anything against Sproul.

Van Riemsdyk's dad reminds me of Eugene Levy.

#2467571 Maybe the weirdest OT winner you'll ever see

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 24 December 2013 - 07:54 AM

If that's the Wings scoring that goal, I guarantee it gets waived off with "intent to blow."


Or Holmstrom was too close to Smith.  Somehow, Holmstrom would be involved.

#2464422 12/14 GDT : Penguins 4 at Red Wings 1

This is exactly why Tootoo needs to be up with this team.

#2462463 Shawn Thornton attacks Orpik (leaves game on stretcher)

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 09 December 2013 - 07:15 AM

In a way, I'm kind of glad that Thornton went after Orpik like that.  The Penguins get away with far too many dirty plays that sometimes cause serious injuries.  Thornton went too far with the repeated blows to the head after Orpik went down, but message sent.  No one likes to see anyone get hurt like that, though.  


Neal should get the same suspension because his knee to the head was just flat out disgusting and targeting a player who was already down as well.

#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.

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 15 October 2013 - 12:52 PM

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.

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!
