#2429004 Holland on SiriusXM w/ audio link

Posted by FireCaptain on 09 July 2013 - 01:17 PM

2 guys out of 720 NHL players?


Didn't someone already refute this idea with the stats and the lead in hits and things was minimal from the east over the west. 


How well did Lucic/Chara work against the Hawks?


Lucic and Chara will manhandle us.

"Reached out a to a bunch of UFAs" 


No mention of who or why they didn't work.



Weiss provides some consistent secondary scoring. Alfredsson was a TOTAL surprise coming out of the blue. 



Datsyuk, Weiss, Helm look to be strong down the middle and give Babcock options. We expect (to get his) best hockey out of 30-year-old Weiss.



People seem to think the East is bigger.. Chicago won the Cup. (other reasons why he disagrees)



If we can get some luck with some health and some of the players play to where we expect them to play - we think we got the potential to score a few more goals. DIRECT QUOTE.


Way to really sell the team there, Kenny, ol' boy. 



Bunch of pro-Chelios talk related to the HHOF. Acquired him in '99 trying to 3 -peat for Cup. Didn't work, but integral in '02 run and 2nd in Norris voting to Lids. Best American born defencemen of all time.


Shanny was premier power forward. Did it all. Helped Wings get over the top and win in '97 & '98.







TL,DR: We like our team.

#2427983 Brunner Contract Talks

About 9 hours ago
NHL | Apparently, the only offer Damien #Brunner got so far was from the #RedWings. But #VAN, #CHI, #MTL and #CAR interested. (@JoeChapp)






FWIW. Keep hope alive. ;)

#2427486 Dan Cleary Watch

Go home, Holland. You're drunk.



Holland said he's still trying to sign Cleary but Brunner is moving on.


#2425568 Red Wings No Longer "Presented by Amway!"

The posts on this thread make me wonder about our education system. Cleary economics isn't being taught in school anymore. 



Complain about people not being educated, spells "clearly" wrong.


No, no, no. He was referring to the 'Dan Cleary Economics' not being taught in school nowadays. It's the theory that some consumers like Ken Holland will scour the market for new and fresher products only to end up at the checkout stands with same ol' reliable off-brand that he's bought for years. It's good for the local economic cap but bad for the Unrestricted marketable products. 



#2425372 Report: Red Wings out on Lecavalier - signs with Philly 5@4.5 per

Posted by FireCaptain on 03 July 2013 - 11:32 AM

I think so of you folks are missing the point. I don't think the DOLLARS were the issue, it was the TERM. 


It's a shame they couldn't have talked him into 2 or 3 years and then explain to him that the Wings have a history of allowing/encouraging 1 year re-ups after that.

Yeah, but then 2 of the side entrances would be cockeyed.


Sam Bernstein arena, that would make Mickey pretty happy lol

#2424258 Red Wings select RW Anthony Mantha 20th Overall

Maltby scored 50 goals in Juniors! © ®


He's a Maltby!

Look at it this way. Many-not all, scouts think he can play harder and show more effort. But he did score 50 goals this year. So if there is more room for improvement, what can he become? 50 goals in the NHL? Yes. he does have that type of talent.

Nope, not just you.

Does anyone else giggle when they say "Regina?" Just me?

Good bye Lauren, please take Mickey York with you.



#2421117 NHL considering ban on spin-o-rama in shootout..

Posted by FireCaptain on 20 June 2013 - 09:30 PM

A. No way Bettman could balance 5 plates, and
B. He would drop plates on purpose in order to influence who wins.

Just sayin'.


Nah, he'd relocate 3 of the plates to 'better markets' and then be forced to have the NHL own the other 2 while searching for a 'suitable buyer'. 

#2421009 Ilitch reveals plan for new $450m, 18,000-seat Red Wings arena

Little Caesers Coliseum!


At least then, the Illitch's are just transferring money from one pocket to another. ;)


Whatever it ends up being, I don't want to see Amway Place © or Amway Arena © or anything with the word AMWAY in it.


Sorry to any independent business owners that are forum contributors, it's just that your parent company has a terrible reputation. 

They don't call it SCAMway for nothing.
