For the comments in here alone, E has to score more goals, especially on power play


Herzlich Wilkommen bei dem Haufen hier. :D

As much as I'd like to see Quasimodo get his bell rung, I'd prefer us to destroy them on the scoreboard.

I am a diehard Bruins fan and the majority of our fan base understand this was a bush league dirty hit. We don't want to see it in the game and many think he should have been suspended and got off to easy. We want tough physical play by our team, drop the gloves, instigate etc. but as passionate hockey fans we don't want to see this occur. So lets move onto Game 2 and get back to some good ole fashion hockey.

My GF had neighbors like that.  Fortunately her apartment complex didn't put up with it very long.  3rd time they had the police there for a noise complaint, the kids were gone.
I understand having fun, but the kid needs to grow up a bit or get a nice house in the suburbs.

When I was that age, I was doing similar things. Only I was in my own home town, in my native country. My father was still alive and very available for guidance and perspective. And I wasn't making bank. And I wasn't nearly as high strung to begin with.

It's a strange period in his life, no doubt. But IMO, they're the golden years. I would recommend not growing up too fast. You can never go back.

Dear Mr Legwand
Welcome to Detroit.
I cant speak for all of us but I am very happy you waived your no trade to join the Red Wings. Some people here may not understand how much we need you. With four of our regular centers injured you have some big skates to fill. As a Veteran of many years you should be able to jump right in there. Maybe more so than some young high flying European.
I think you will do very well here, your brand of hockey that you have played for 15 years should fit with exactly what we will need to do to win games to get us in the playoffs. It may not be pretty but I'm sure Mike Babcock has a plan to shut down the opposition rather than outgun them.
You may not be the defence man we thought we were all going to get this trade deadline, but a 2 way speedy center in my mind is the closest and next best thing. Your defensive skills I'm sure will be relied on to keep the puck out of our net in the dying seconds of the game something we have watched our red wings have much trouble with this year.
As much as Patty Eaves, and Jarnkrok will be missed, I would at least like to welcome you as a fan to a player of the Red Wings.
Welcome aboard, Stay Healthy, have a fun run.

You know, it really hurts me to see LGWers that I care about arguing over Canada/USA and which team is going to win silver/bronze.








Can't we all just get along?

Not everyone can walk in and be a stand out like Dekeyser. I was one that regularly said the same thing about Ericsson that most are saying about Smith now. Ericsson took his time but is finding his ground and Smith will be the same. For now enjoy Dekeyser's success unti Smitty finds his ground.


Oh. What about that Kindl guy? 2 years ago I'd have said he was on his way out of town but he has actually finally proven some worth. Patience. It will be worth it.

#2457600 What Does This Team Need More/Most?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 24 November 2013 - 11:38 AM

We need some more snarl, some more size up front. But at the same time, it isn't just an enforcer. We could use a guy like Chris Stewart, Bertuzzi is a decent deterrent, but you see how the game changes if he doesn't play. We need big guys that can put some pucks in the net. And on the back end, we could use either a guy who blocks shots like a madman or can connect tape to tape on every pass. But all of that is easier said then done, because not only do we have a nonchalant GM, he doesn't have cap space or roster space to make trades.  


I agree about Bert, but it also says a lot when the Wings rely on a 38 year-old with a bad back to be a deterrent of any kind.  Like when he dropped the gloves to go with Weber after the head smash on Z.  Good on Bert for doing it, but I also felt kind of bad for him.


As I've mentioned before, it'd be nice to have someone like Jordan Nolan on the 4th line like the Kings do.  He's 6'3" 227 lbs, will drop the gloves with anyone and is a pretty effective grinder who will score a few.  You know when the Kings 4th line is out there.  And Nolan is only 24 years old, drafted in the 7th round.  Dwight King is another one, taken in the 4th round. He has more offensive upside than Nolan. 


It's not like the Kings got them because of high draft picks.  There are guys out there.  You occasionally have to pick them instead of a non-physical skill guy.


To try and head off the inevitable enforcer argument, I'm not talking about the Wings getting a John Scott.  But it would be nice if they at least had a 4th line with some size and grit, and would make people answer for playing against the Wings like the Sens did last night.   Even before last night many of us have been saying how the bottom 6 are a collection of spare parts instead of one that has a mission and identity when they're out there.
