#2175515 Interesting article about possible changes

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 14 May 2011 - 12:25 PM

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.


#2123099 Seabrook extended for 5 years at $5.8 million per year

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 27 February 2011 - 03:06 PM

It's okay. They'll just loan him to a Swiss team if this contract becomes a problem next season.


#2115275 Isles vs Pens

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 12 February 2011 - 12:10 AM

I just can't believe Hailey. Fought Talbot. Took him down. Went straight after Johnson.


From the video it looked to me like Johnson challenged Haley. In any case, I kind of like seeing these types of games every once in a while but after a certain point you have to just quit the circus and play hockey.


#2107458 Weber and the Wings

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 30 January 2011 - 08:34 PM

I don't see Nashville ever trading him to a division rival, especially the Wings. If he became a UFA maybe then Detroit would have a shot at him but we will never see him play with Lidstrom before Lids retires.


#2086140 Discipline for referee Devorski?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 28 December 2010 - 12:03 PM

I've never really liked Devorski anyway, but I'm guessing all of those penalties called on the Jackets were legitimate. I mean, hell, with how little Columbus fans know about hockey he could have had his arm up on a delayed penalty and they could have thought that was giving them the finger.


#2085902 12/27 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Avalanche 3 (OT)

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 27 December 2010 - 11:45 PM

Say what you want about Chris Osgood, I don't think I've smiled that big after watching a Wings game in a long while. Congrats, Ozzie!


#2084067 Frederick Meyer levels Milan Lucic

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 23 December 2010 - 10:38 PM

Jack Edwards has to be the worst/most annoying play-by-play guy in the league. And that's including Jeff Rimer.


#2074086 Darren Pang's freudian slip

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 08 December 2010 - 02:27 PM

Hopefully this doesn't become a big deal because it's not at all. He just got ahead of himself while thinking of the word, "way" and "white" slipped out. I was expecting something worse, and I think you all know which word I'm talking about...


#2056749 Hudler + Helm

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 03 November 2010 - 04:03 PM

Hudler isn't an NHL caliber player anymore. I can't wait to shift him off for a sixth round pick. He's overpaid, and unmotivated. He's just going to drag everyone down that plays around him. Keep him in the pressbox unless we have a rash of injuries.


I agree. Modano will start putting up points if he has Abby and Cleary as his wingers. Hudler doesn't fit the style of this team anymore.


#2052671 Brown Gets ejected for clean hit

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 25 October 2010 - 09:38 PM

That hit is clearly shoulder-to-shoulder. What is the debate here?
